Can’t ask her out

Thursday, November 29th, 2007

Some are born famous. Some made themselves. And there are those who simply deserve their share of fame. Others like me exist to showcase them to the world.

But she wouldn’t let me do it. So should I bury this to be discovered by my grand children one day? Or should I just erase it? What I really intend to do with this, I do not say. And she doesn’t know. I love that! That brings us to my favorite words in the dictionary – suspense and doubt.

Who is the person who shouts in church?

Monday, October 29th, 2007

Of late, I have noticed some lady shouting “Amen” or “Halleluiah” loudly during hymns or prayers at our Bangalore Mizo Service.

Is this a general occurance in Mizo services? I do not recall having ever heard of this in any other non-mizo service, or even in mizo services in Delhi, Bombay or Calcutta.

Of course, never having lived in Mizoram during my school/college days I do not know how it is there. I have attended Christmas services in Aizawl, but haven’t seen such a thing.

Quite a strange and funny habit of the person..

91% knows where to get condom

Thursday, October 25th, 2007

Update: According to IBN Live, the awareness level is 100% in Aizawl. The real news indeed is that 8% in Aizawl said they were forced to have sex with their partners. Shocking?

Read “The God Father”

Read “The God Father”: That is the assignment I gave to my niece who’s first year degree student here, under my guardianship.

She’s thru with Chetan Bhagat’s “One night at a Call Center” and “Five Point Someone”. The I gave her “The God Father”. She had to struggle through the first few pages. Eventually she started liking the story and is now past half the book.

Had she remained in Mizoram with her parents, chances are she wouldn’t have read these books.

Any suggestion (book/novel) for a first year student?
