Life couldn’t get any better. Here I am at my home town with my family (which comprises of really interesting and weird characters); with my mom taking time off from work to be with me and I guess that explains why I haven’t written any posts for quite some time now. A lot has been happening here and the lesser I write about my health, the better.
Talking about health, I need a lot of rest now (which explains why I am still at my home town) and there seems to be no way I could get some. Elections are coming and campaigning is on at full swing. I was sleeping the other afternoon and suddenly I was woken up by a loud noise, asking all the “wise men and women” (how else do I say “periyorgale, thaaimaargale?”) to vote for ‘Gas Cylinder’. What the heck! I wanted to run to the street to ask the people to cut it out which was when I realized that it wasn’t even the candidate who is yakking and seeking our votes, it was a pre-recorded message. Just then my cell phone rang and I came running inside and picked it up only to hear the pre-recorded message from “Amma” (J. Jayalalithaa, I hope I spelt it right, I am not sure how her name is spelt given her zest for numerology) asking us to vote for “Twin leaves (Irattai Ilai?)” I mean, these people are everywhere – TV, Radio, Newspapers, Cell phones, Internet (I wonder if any of these are on Facebook or Twitter). Thanks to IRCTC, there are no tickets for 13th night to Chennai, so I am leaving on 12th night without casting my vote. Is there any way to vote online?
I am in love with this new series of Vodafone ads (with the zoo-zoos, isn’t that what they are called?) – Totally funny and effective and cute and far better than paying SRK, SAK, Kareena and the likes, the way Airtel does.
There is so much more that has happened here, but I guess I’ll have to sign off now. I’ll save the rest for next week when I feel better.
