Madras nalla Madras

Apparently, now, Madras day is on Aug 22. This is the first time I’ve heard of it, but I say, way to go.

The city that is used and then abused by many, even its ex-natives, has a lot to offer. Come hell or high water, Chennai is home.

are some choice snippets to celebrate the ‘real’ city and
here you have a view from a moderate ‘northie’.

Read on and if you have been one of the city's abusers, regret!

A corny tale

When I first read the headline, I thought it was a deliberately misleading one. Like the ones goss mags use: Aamir kicks SRK etc. And then you read the article to discover that in reality, Aamir had kicked a dog named SRK or whatever…..boring.

So, that’s why I thought it was one of those headlines. Because, like you, I too thought corn was more than healthy – super healthy, in fact. A lot depends on how you use it I guess. Click here to see what I mean.

This is yet another example of the US sowing the seed and the whole world happily reaping the fruit or in this case, kernel. Like they didn’t have a mind of their own!

And of course, not to mention the gazillion dollars that will be spent in‘re-educating’ people around the world about healthy food, exercise et al. Except maybe in Africa.

Sometimes I think the US is the worst joke that someone played on the modern world. And on those poor Americans. God save America.

I am sure this is a joke, although in very bad taste!

And here I was thinking the Aussies had gone weird by putting kangaroo meat on their menus as their way of eliminating those ‘pests’!

And rat ‘meat’ is a healthy alternative? Carry on like this, and we’ll have a mad rat disease soon enough. Like we don’t have enough to worry about in India.

Faking it

This literally makes me see red.

I can live with (or without) the fake fireworks and the fake cleanliness. But this?

How could they do that to a child? How? Start early. Start telling them from now that they are “ugly”. No age is too early to start the stereotyping. I feel sick.

What else will they fake next?

If all the 6.684 billion+ people in the world cheered at the same time, at India winning its first ever individual Olympic gold medal (Abhinav Bindra, Beijing Games) what would it sound like?
