Recent realisations

  • Mango isn't my most favourite fruit any more. It's orange.
  • The hoarding count I've seen before this KMC election exceeds any that I've seen before.
  • This is the hottest summer I've spent in Kolkata.
  • I still prefer Asterix to Calvin and Hobbes (comment made after reading Yukon Ho!).
  • It used to take me forty minutes to return home from work on foot ten years back; it takes me anything between forty-five minutes and fifty minutes now. However, I carry a laptop these days.
  • All of a sudden most of the leading cricketers in the world are actually younger than me.
  • The Lava A9 cellphone commercials they showed during the recently concluded world cup are among the most irritating I've ever seen.
  • Minimising all windows, reaching the desktop and hitting F5 repeatedly doesn't get me any closer to meeting deadlines.
  • Gawar phali (cluster beans), with it's wild aroma and flavour, tastes better than French beans.
  • The older you get, you more you crave for your school days.
  • Gunda is the best movie ever made in the history of mankind. It's actually better than Godfather, Forrest Gump and Pather Panchali put together.
  • T20 remains my second-favourite sport, but I'm not sure for how long.
  • adidas has definitely sponsored Bumm Bumm Bole.
  • A re-watch of the India vs Australia 2000-01 series still gives me goosebumps.
  • Parle Marie is an obscene name for a brand. If you're not Bengali, don't bother about the explanation.
  • Chitrangada Singh looks fabulous in a sando genji.
Even the dumbest of readers must have realised that I was simply looking for an excuse to publish an image to prove the last point, which, as you have all been expecting, is here.

  3. I figured out the Chitrangada Singh bit....... I kind of know why you now prefer oranges to mangoes.. But what I fail to understand is why on earth would you watch movies like Gunda & Bumm Bumm Bole???
