Amazon, You May Want To Look At This!!

We take life too seriously in this part of the world, I thought. Morose, whining, cynical….mags, especially in Tamizh,  continuing to publish stupid ‘jokes’ that won’t evoke a snicker from a self-respecting earthworm.

Luckily all is not lost. When it comes to topical humor, we’re second to none on this planet…the mags do redeem themselves in this department.

Here are a couple in the aftermath of the recent rains:

ISRO is the Indian space agency.

The second is a short clip from our friends in the south, Kerala:


The waterway in this boating clip is actually a ‘pucca’ motorable road under normal conditions.  And the boating itself, no sham, is authentic in the manner of traditional boat races on river waters the state is known for.  More than the prank played by the weather god and the denizens’ response, it’s a comment the clip drew makes it abs hilarious:

” Suresh Thunga: looks like someone ordered same day delivery through amazon prime….

Won’t be surprised if Amazon picks this up for its promotion!

Richly Poor

I let my mind wander during one of those program-breaks filled with interminable series of ad’s. Can you really fault me for coming up with this?

” The school principal had asked her to meet him in his office.

She checked with the boy if he had any mischief in the class, if any his teachers were unhappy with him for whatever reason.

The boy was equally clueless. And he was one to hide it from her.

With great trepidation, on the following day she made it to the Principal’s office.

Within a few minutes of wait she was called in.

The Principal, a white-haired stern looking man, peered at her from behind thick glasses that had slipped down to rest halfway on his nose, and gestured her to take the seat in front of him..

‘I’m sorry, I’ve some bad news for you.’


‘Yes, we’re forced to withdraw the assistance extended to your boy so far as well as the fee-waiver.’

She was shell-shocked. After a little while she mustered enough courage to ask:

‘Is there a problem? If my boy has done anything wrong, I’ll get him to apologize and make amends. And I assure you there would be no recurrence`

‘No. M’m the problem is not with the boy,’


‘You’ve made false declarations on your income.’


‘It is clearly indicated by the facts before us.’

She warmed up a little ‘under her collar’: ‘What is it?’

‘The teachers have reported the boy is wearing new clothes everyday. And I’ve no reason not to believe them. How could one afford…’

‘New clothes? What are they talking about? He has only three sets of school-uniforms that he rotates.’

The Principal was silent. He did not want to accuse her outright of lying. He let the silence speak for itself.

The frown on her face suggested she was desperately rummaging for an explanation. More than one teacher had made the observation. Not all of them could be mistaken.

‘Ah, that must be it,’ she said to herself. Suddenly she relaxed and burst out laughing: ‘I know what it is.’

The Principal showed mild irritation. How could she counter or explain it away?

‘So what is it?’

‘You see, recently…’

It took a while for the words to sink in.

The Principal’s face slowly morphed into a big smile.

‘Am sorry to have caused you much anguish, though for a short while…I knew all along, there must be an explanation.’


If you haven’t already guessed the mother’s explanation, it’s in the ‘Comments’.

(Background: This must be read in the Indian context where marriages are arranged by the parents. Though this practice on its way out)

Kaliedoscpe cover-kisay-hum-apna-kahein-ebuzztoday

Gloom filled the house like someone had died. Why not? The marriage was all fixed up, relatives and friends were informed. And the girl goes missing, not a word with anyone, only a note.

On the morning of the fourth day after: a knock at the door. The kid opened the door and screamed in glee:

‘Ayyah, akka vandhutta!’ (Sister has returned).

The girl let herself pulled by her kid sister into the hall.

The parents and her brother quickly gathered around her.

Father breathing fire: ‘Why have you come now? To check if we’re still alive?’

Inconsolable mother: ‘What happened to you, foolish girl?’

Brother: ‘Such a loss of face for me at my office…because of her…everyone inquiring in mock sympathy…’

Father: ‘Do you realize there’s one more girl to be married off in this house after you?’

Mother, hopefully: ‘Easy, easy. Enough of scolding. She has realized her mistake and come back. Let’s forget it ever happened.’

The girl purposefully punched her way through and headed for the room she shared with her sister.

‘Hey, where do you think you’re going?’

The girl turned around facing them squarely: ’I came to collect the charger.’


The message: China mobile works for three days without recharging.

Well, I didn’t see it coming! Did you?
