the good part about not bloggin for a while…is that you get a feel of your fan following…!

…1 girl reminded me that i used to blog…
…my viewership has dropped 50%…
…i received 37 (yes…thats friggin THIRTY SEVEN…) anonymous comments…in a single day…and some 150 in the past month…”great site you have here…btw check some lesbians babes…and hey…while you are at it…hv u heard of viagra and turkey as a tourist destination…??”

i am actively considering selling my blog to google…!

____________

so my client was narrating his india trip the other day. went to mumbai for some business meetings and the first day was pretty tight with multiple appointments. the flight arrives at 8.30am and its only an hr to the first meeting. so DB tells the driver…”boss…drive as fast as you can…its crucial for him to reach in the next 45 mins…”

now you know how indian drivers are….either they drive at 40 and not an inch more….or if told otherwise…they forget that cars are made of materials that can crush humans….! see…here is my point….dhanno from sholay was the only friggin horse in that scene. so wouldnt have bumped into another…and crashed….and lost a leg…and her tail for life..! but mumbai….DUDE…! you drive at 60 only if you are on top of another driving at that speed..!

anyways…so this driver pays ample attention to the instructions…and makes his way through the traffic…! lo behold…he does manage to reach in time…

client is happy…impressed..! he calls DB and goes…”this guy was fantastic….! he took me through all these shortcuts and small roads…and heck..there was traffic…but hey…he managed perfectly..”

DB is clueless…”shortcuts…?? small roads..??” he talks to the driver…khuspus khuspus…and then comes back to client….

“ummm…well…those are the mumbai main roads…!!”

i rest my case…! arguments plz..???

Dahmiht!!!!!!
The roads in mumbai can really freak you out…
How..i only wish that my labor pains(read: in future…BTW am still single) don’t get hold of me in this berserk traffic….
or only if the roads get a little better….

Option 1: Stay next to the lilavati…and i mean…really next. as in…totally next..!!

Option2: Stay on the top floor and get a copter..!

Option 3 (and remember…when a consultant gives options…the last one is almost always the most powerful one): get a friggin life and come to delhi..!
