# Day 3, 15th August 2009:- A family function was the reason I had gone to Kolkata. It was my maternal uncle’s first death anniversary and it happened to be on 15th August. The house was full of relatives both near and distant ones. I and my mom spent the whole afternoon chatting with some of them. In the evening there was a remembrance gathering which included neighbors also. But it seemed most of the people had just come to chat. While songs were being sung, people at back just kept talking. I stopped myself from standing up and shouting “Stop this facade.” There was just lot of hypocrisy around and I would not like to dwell on that. Moving on to the next day;
Use the first letter of your name to answer each of the following questions.
They have to be real… nothing made up! (Okay! Geeta ki kasam!)
If the person before you had the same first initial, you must use different answers. (Okay!! That is also obvious!)
You cannot use any word twice and you can’t use your name for the boy/girl name question.
Have Fun!! (Errrr….)
Now as Roshmi has already done with R, I would do it with K..which is the first letter of my real name. 😀
This is a guest post by Nomad (my sister). Since she is on a break, she wrote this in an email to me and asked me to post it on my blog so that people can read her views on an email forward that many of us may have received some time in our inbox. She said :-
Forward this to people, so that eventually the creator of this joke will read my opinion. Or put in on blog.
So here it goes. Tell us your opinion and view point in the comments section!
The Bong girl (i.e. me) visited her matribhoomi (as per my relatives. Sigh! that is India for you. Our states are our homelands not the country) after 12 years. I was actually looking forward to the trip as I have started liking visiting different places 🙂 I made Dad promise to take me out roaming in Kolkata atleast one day during our 5 day trip. Otherwise our schedule was just full of meeting friends and relatives. So here is an account of my trip.
# City of Joy :- Why do they call Kolkata the City of Joy? Just because Dominique Lapierre wrote a story based on Kolkata by the same name? Sigh! I am a Bengali and saying that I do not like Kolkata is like committing sacrilege! I may as well commit Hara Kiri. But there I said it. I do not like Kolkata.
A younger sister is someone to use as a guinea-pig in trying sledges and experimental go-carts. Someone to send on messages to Mum. But someone who needs you-who comes to you with bumped heads, grazed knees, tales of persecution. Someone who trusts you to defend her. Someone who thinks you know the answers to almost everything. -Pam Brown
Blogosphere is a place where various types of personalities meet through their blogs but it is better than social networking sites and chat rooms. Chat rooms are mostly filled with dumb jerks or perverts or desperate guys with girl ids!! Social networking websites have their own set of problems like fake profiles, misuse of personal information etc.
