Do u want?

Posted by No-man in General | 4:38pm

It was a holiday and after a good lunch, we were watching TV and relaxing. I heard a knock on the door and opened it. There was this girl with several packets on a tray and she asked me "Do u want it?", i thought that somebody is really stupid to send a little girl to sell their goods and said, "No".

I closed the door and sat on the couch........and my friend said, "She's our neighbour and she came to distribute sweets, today is Idd"

Amma Chai

Posted by No-man in General | 2:16am

T......people live on T and i belong to the same ghetto. Morn and evening, and when-ever possible, a single T and ek chinna gold-flake.......thats the life as it used to be while i was in bachelors. The canteen used to close at 6pm and if u wanted to have a cup of T, we are expected to go to Mamu' stall. hardly any one liked Mamu's T which was officially @ the cafe on campus and the T sucked big time. he was prolly competing for the Top Slot in "Worst ever Tea" with Indian Railways. Mamu's T faced tough competition from Amma Chai, the unofficial icon of our campus. It's said, if u drink T and are not an Amma Chai regular, ur not an ***ian.


At the end of the campus, where there used to be a gate (now closed) Amma Chai fluorished and the closing of the gate meant diaster for her business. Still, people love Amma Chai for her Single chai and chinna gold-flake.

As we approched the wall, we shouted, Amma: Char Single and char Chinna.......and a few minutes later she came to the wall and said "baap" and we used to climb on to the tree to collect our order and pay the money, and she used to bring the change when we returned the cups....and if it was her son, he used to jump into the campus and collect the cups.


I hear that for the same reasons the gate was closed a few yrs ago, ............... the wall was raised and a metal wire (previously cut-down) put in place.  I only hope that my fellow mates have cut down the wire, else shud i discuss with the alumni association to replace Mamu with Amma Chai......after all, its the question of protecting our unofficial icon.

She said Hello

Posted by No-man in General | 8:37pm

My neighbour's daughter is beautiful. Yes, she is a beauty. Morning/evening, she used to stop at our door for a instant, so that she could peep inside our house.......i wonder y she used to do this and before we could say 'Hello' she used to go away.......


Time passed, a year or more and we friends used to talk about this girl....and finally she talked one day.....ah !! she talked.......it was something like a rain in a desert, we hardly talked to girls.........we were so happy that she talked to us..........she said, "Hello, i am three years old already".

The Kid

I was in university and was practicing for the inter-college/university cricket competition. I am a fast bowler and there were other bowlers who were practicing simultaneously along with me. There was this young fellow (i later realised that its my junior) about 5feet tall and fat (more than u wud expect for a sportsperson) and was wearing a sweater at about 35C, :shock:

Nike Shoes

I bought a pair of Gray-Nicholls shoes and I was very happy with the purchase. Probably for the first time ever, I was feeling like I am a professional cricket player, though I have represented my school and university and company cricket teams, i never felt better. The next day was a 35 over match and two wickets off 7 overs was a decent performance :( and we lost :( and in the end that
