mooch nahi toh kooch nahi

we were supposed to meet over brunch this sunday ... and i forgot, so did sri.
we had all of 10 odd minutes to announce our departure, put ita to sleep, leave instructions for when she would wake up, get out of pyjamas, wear clean clothes (damn the bath, damn the bath... it was sunday!) and leave.

minutes before our destination and in the middle of the zillionth signal, we noticed an auto driver trying to commit suicide under a water tanker. on closer observation we realised that the guy had wedged the auto (almost) underneath the tanker so he could clean his windsheild with the water dripping from the leaking tap behing the tanker. we almost missed the bearded salesman during our enthusiastic photographing of this cleansing ritual. almost but not quite.

the false beard and moustache set we bought for Rs.15/- turned out to be a riot at the brunch meeting. fulltoo paisa vasool. all of us tried it on, with variations of course - with moustache, without moustache, the beard on the head (a few drinks later) ... and got ourselves photographed.

it was one of the most amazing meals i have had. we laughed more than we ate, which if you know us, would really tell you how much fun we were having.
if only i could find the picture of mugdha and me posing as sardars now.

I now know what "out of sight is out of mind" means

that naya daamad is trying to replace my position of the best damaad in the family... .Hmmm...I'll need to talk to the Ambani's and have this "new kid on the block" transferred to some project in Siberia or Patna (not to be comparisioning theze places pelease)..

I probably should also arrange for free darsanam / prasadam to some other temples for them all.. may be that would help... hmmmm

Given I'm slightly amhimsawadi I'd not talk to the kings of Mumbai Plus the guy is somewhat nice and all...

any other suggesstions?

oh yeah ... i remember that, but it was a wig, not daadi mooch.

the daadi-mooch thing happened at my place in dadar, when mugs' sardar friend had come down, he even helped us tie pagdis :)
