on the way back i went to tushar and sharmilas place. he wanted some advice on a place in goregaon that he is thinking of buying to set up his studio. a mhada lig house that seemed to me to be in a very bad state. i said no.
this week i have been trying to recover from my holiday. i cleaned the office myself a few days back and promptly got a terrible chest congestion. my allergy does not seem to have gone. am completely antibioticked courtesy mrs prabhu – the pretend ayurved.
at home friday, saw ‘super size me’ with mukul. this guy ate mcdonalds food for thirty days- and predictably fell very ill. interesting and entertaining enough- if not very illuminating. at the end i wanted a chicken burger really bad.
and as an important footnote: as a good non practicing half tamil iyer i am suitably aghast at the affront to our tamil culture by that north indian actress khushboo when she advised us to have safe sex! sex? and us tamilians! doesn’t she know our species propagates when the monsoon winds blow pollen from stamens through pleated polyester trousers to pistils wrapped under folds and folds of kanjivaram saris?
quote from pink kanjivaram clad doctorni on ndtv: “tamilian culture is a truly great culture with hundred of years of great tradition; and should be respected and not insulted by making such comments.”
you go girl!
