“बोलता को बोलता नहीं बोलता तो क्या बोलता??”

March 12, 2009


wasp‘Bolta’ is ‘wasp’ in bengali. One of my bengali friends at my workplace was telling me this story about his childhood (and I’m sharing because somehow I found it hilarious; hope you too)

Once on a school picnic trip, where these guys were enjoying in the outdoors, some wasps got annoyed (perhaps correctly thinking that the place belonged more to them than to some hullabaloo-causing children) and tried to chase these guys away (or rather, as I understand, they were just flying around to scare them and these guys started to run, as if they were really being chased, further, as if, they could beat the chase had had those little-yellow-stings decided to kiss them!) Now, amidst this panic, one girl decided to run upto this school security guy who was resting under a tree near-by. He had accompanied them perhaps to handle the kind of pressing problems these kids were right then in. Our security guy happened to be a nepali (no offence meant, but no prizes for guessing either 😉 and other than his mother-tongue, he could understand bits of hindi, but not in the least, bengali.

when women meet old friends..

March 7, 2009

Here goes one observation to which you may agree or disagree, but I’ll love to hear if you have anything to say:

I have seen women losing all their sanity on meeting long lost friends, especially of their own gender. Men are happy but easy, both emotionally and physically, on seeing a friend after years even, though the excitement is there in equal measure (there is no doubting that). For instance, the men I have known (and I will include myself) on meeting after a long separation, clasp fists tightly, two tough pats on the back (that means an extra second long hug – that’s all) and few further moments of staring back at each other in immense glee. And the whisky takes over. Girls on the other hand, (more…)
