Rekha’s pregnancy n de Global Recession…!!!

“JEALOUSY: It is in the character of very few men to honor without envy a friend who has prospered”-Aeschylus



A week back.

tic tic…tic tic…’sms’

Ms.ABC:‘Da She’s pregnant’

ME:‘Waaaat…who?’

Ms.ABC:‘Rekha…barely 4 months since de wedding bash’

ME:‘Wowww…cool…’

Ms.ABC‘Waz cool…hmmmm’

ME:‘he he, itz a typical Indian woman whom I’m messaging right now ha’

Ms.ABC:‘Yep…da…grrr…she’s just a week younger than me’

ME:‘Ha ha hu hu’

Well folks…hope i don’t get sued for posting this article…it’s true.

Rekha’s pregnancy is the latest buzz among my old school mates. Whenever there is a phone call…even before a ‘hello’ de conversation is ‘ALIYA AVALKU KUTTIYAVARAYI’…(“HEY WE R GONNA BE UNCLES AND AUNTS’). She turned out to be a trendsetter. Completed her course…snatched a job…got engaged…then de wedding bash…and then Singapore, Malaysia…and finally she’s gonna b a mother, ALL IN A SPLIT SECOND.

The bad part is…the gals have already turned into green eyed monsters. Most of them are still struggling…some with their courses, other’s with their jobs… February 14’s still dry for many.



I still remember the kind of struggle i went through…i ran amok through every corner of my house during the pre-college admission dates. I didn’t want to enter a Medical College. Climax was tragic…Parents won. Years passed by…i began to receive messages “Machaaaa got placed…salary xxxxx per annum”.

I would shout to Amma (poor Amma…Dad rarely got chance to taste my fury…he wouldn’t be home during those violent episodes

…k…k…readers…i admit…i used to plan the shots when he wouldn’t be home…hmmm)

Amma would remain silent…with a hidden smile. Well she scores over me these days. Coz she’ll be right besides me whenever my ol’ pals ring me. Most of them who turned into ‘engineering’ and jumped into firms through campus interviews (‘firms’ include de core ones like Wipro, L&T)have started looking for new means of living…bank tests…higher studies etc.

AS I type in, the face that runs into my mind is that of Jhonsy ( yeah daz de nick name). He was one of de few who acted ‘wise’. He wasn’t lured by de lump of sums that firms promised…he joined MTECH…I met him yesterday…So happy he is 4 de stitch in time… just because he didn’t join de FIRM… hmmm…guess where he was placed through campus selections???

'SATYAM'

Returning to Rekha…congrats dear…!!! Lucky gal…(???). You have lit a fire among all gals who were with us. Hooo…fortunately…men haven’t yet signed similar ventures. We haven’t yet started thinking of all these (this ‘we’ doesn’t include me…gosh i’ll have to wait till 2k11…no…shit…de current status is dad says ‘joining MD is de apt time 4 an engagement’..grrrrr)

(Well folks…this article is just to tickle the lighter side of yer brains. No INJURIES intended. Casualties if reported…i assure i’ll delete this post. And Rekha is indeed a fake name!!! but i admit…the character do exist!!!

Hope de economic break down will be patched up real soon…)

(proudly announcin dat nithin is about 2 return into 'voracious' bloggin real soon) :)
