Story of a Lazy Dog

... Master to his Dog -- " You will have to bark whenever you see some stranger " ... The Dog nodded first vertically (means yes normally) and then in a shrewd way, horizontally (means no normally) ... Dog is always prompt at food hours ...
Whenever we guys used to plan for somewhere or initiate some event, my friend, Pervez Iqbal used to say -- " Is kam ko kar liya jaye (Lets go on doing this work) ". The intent was clear. Suppose we had to watch some film, he used to say -- " Is film ko dekha jaye (Lets go on watching this movie) ". Usually watching movie means bringing some VCD to feed in Compu (which was supposed to be a tool which can do magic for our career). The intent of this guy was simple, let some person(other than him) bring the CD and he will have his cool position where he will sit and watch movie. ... And he usually succeeded ...
Many people think me as a very active person, who does not take rest for hours ... and ... well its enough Reetesh, don't go on. The only person in this world who knows truth is my father, he catches me always. He knows that if I keep staying in long queues at railway station for taking railway ticket, then the intent is not to behave like a responsible citizen, but the fact is that I must be chatting with some person. Pop, this is true, similarly, I like buses in Bangalore, because long time that it takes in traffic can be used to hear lot of music and give rest to your soul from utilizing those time for some "sensual" work. The steps are, go get the bus, get loaded in it, and then take rest, after that come to the real world of workaholic snails. Taking rest and pretending that you are working hard is an art. For example, if some task is given to you in company to accomplish in given span of time, your statement should always be -- "I will 'try' my best to complete it. Don't know if some issue comes on surface".
In fact Laziness is an art and it should be practised with zeal. I know some of my friends who got very good job at different companies, who did not run after academic tantrums, never did projects at time and are enjoying their work (means taking rest). In fact I found some people who are known for their merit in "society", who hold key position at companies, are called as innovators of their field, but if closely watched, they have got their work done by people, largely unkown. You will find that Laziness becomes a skill also.


  1. i wonder how i havent come across ur blog till now, mukul. i had a nice read here. shall be back for more!

  2. Taking away credits for something you havent done is so so wrong..unethical and tyrranic !!

    Thats not just laziness..that dumbness and a total lack of humanity !!

  3. @velu -- Thanks velu. Please come here regularly.

    @cin -- Hain ... its true ... I do it often ... believe me ...

  4. "Taking rest and pretending that you are working hard is an art..."

    This sentence looks closer to my attitude.I always push myself to relax after completing a small task,which any lazy guy like me takes a long time to complete...

Sowmalya on Ramaiya Vasta Vaiya

Sowmu, my friend and the song Ramaiya Vasta Vaiya of Shree 420.
If we think from the premises of this film this song resembles the pain one is going through during the parting times.

But if we see the song from the beginning the song is being sung by a group of street people who in general does not have anything to loose or not much a thing to gain .Their singing the song indicates their casual interaction with life and easy acceptance of any good or bad. One big teaching which comes from this film is HOPE. Which reflects in a couple of plots of the film e.g. the 100 rupees flat sequence , the hope to get everything back for the poor, getting the love back after all the miss happenings.As we know this film is the journey of a small town guy coming to a big town and lost his naive ness partly due to the circumstances and partly by his inclination to be rich early (which in general every body have) .The first part of the song tries to make him remember the pure soled human with which he …

Smoke Smoke Smoke That Cigarette

Now I'm a fella with a heart of gold,
The ways of a gentleman,
I've been told.
The kind of a guy that wouldn't even harm a flea
But if me and a certain character met
That guy that invented that cigarette
I'd murder that son of a gun in the first degree.
Well not because I don't smoke myself
I don't reckon they'll harm your health
I've smoked all my life and I'm not dead yet.
But nicotine
slaves are all the same,
At a pettin' party or a poker game,
Everything's must stop while they smoke a cigarette.

Smoke! Smoke! Smoke! that cigarette.
Puff! Puff! Puff!
And if you smoke yourself to death,
Tell Saint Peter at the golden gate
That you hate to make him wait,
But you got to have another cigarette.

Now in a game of chance the other night,
Old Dame Fortune was doing me right.
The kings and queens just kept on comin' round
I played 'em hard and I bet 'em high
But my bluff didn't work on a certain guy
He kept on r…

Archie and Betty ... or Archie and Veronica

So with whom Archie should go finally ? The 600th edition's cover page suggests it could be Veronica !!!

Oh! don't say that this is their personal life, personal decision ... and one should not interfere, intervene !!! Veronica seems to be happily blogging, and cheerfully oozing her wavy words. But lo and behold, the whole blogger world is damn serious about this issue, and internet is flooded out of discussion - with whom Archie should marry !

He should marry otherwise "Bahan Jee" (sister kinda) type Betty or should he go for the "Kat" Veronica?

Its 2009. Its 68 years of Archie Andrews. He is still young, still to marry ... thanks because he is a comics character. But he is not just a comics character. Along with Veronica, Betty, Jughead, Reggie, Dilton and all of Riverdale and Riverdale High School - Archie develops on your imagination. In your teens you may have been fan of this team, your father in his teens may be fan of this team and perhaps may be your…
