A Few Stray Thoughts (all my own work)

For those who grew up or lived in Mumbai (it was Bombay then) in the late 80’s or 90’s, and read ‘The Afternoon’, specially in local trains, this post will sound familiar.

busybeeAnd for a Saturday, a few stray thoughts and a few general observations and a few points of view (all my own work):

Like Shah Rukh Khan should probably stay at home for a few days. A slap, a blow and a shoe, and now I wonder what’s next?

Like however badly he behaves, banning SRK from Wankhede is like banning Tendulkar from Red Chillies Productions’ Studios. It hardly makes any difference.

Like after the government has increased petrol prices, I don’t understand what is worse, increasing diesel prices or not increasing them.

Like I also don’t understand why there is always a queue at the petrol pumps on the evenings when the petrol price hike is announced. And while some people in the queue joke about petrol being bought on EMIs, I often see BMWs and Mercs also in the queue.

Like I am unable to decide what is worse, Mamata Banerjee embarrassing the government or Mulayam Singh Yadav supporting it.

Like next Thursday is probably going to be a holiday due to a Bharat Bandh after a long time. And that all parties agree on this one thing. Even Anna Hazare does.

Like while every one agrees on the Bharat Bandh, no one agrees on the presidential candidate. It looks like they are playing Kaun Banega Rashtrapati.

Like even if no one could be luckier than the Chennai Super Kings in this year’s IPL, you still have to make that luck count.

Like when every one (including me) says IPL is not real cricket, and I don’t think I will miss it after it ends this week, yet I don’t understand why I find myself watching IPL in the evening.

And this final point of view: That this post is neither a copy nor an imitation, but a tribute. Thank you, Busybee.
