There were two kids named – Manbhajan and Saisanth – studying in the 5th grade.  Saisanth constantly made fun of Manbhajan, calling him ‘soplangi’, ‘kondai kaaraa’ etc.  One fine day, Saisanth was beyond his limits and irritated Manbhajan to the core.  Manbhajan, usually temperamental in nature, could no longer resist himself and gave Saisanth a hard-slap.

Not expecting this, Saisanth was shell-shocked and started crying.  As this happened in the middle of the road, everyone gathered round the kids.  One was cursing Manbhajan and the other was pitying Saisanth, as to how innocent he was!  Their school head-mistress happened to pass by; she scorned at Manbhajan and wanted his parents to accompany him to the school, the very next day.  Manbhajan did not know how to react, at this unexpected turn of events.  His first thought though, was to pacify Saisanth, who was crying at the peak of his voice.  He went close to Saisanth and offered to get him a candy and a ice-cream, only if he stopped crying.  There was a smile at the corner of Saisanth’s face.  Manbhajan too was happy and both went home in a joyous mood!

Only the next day, Manbhajan came to know that he was banned from school for 11 days, by his head-mistress!

This news really made me laugh…


I am wondering at the creativity and boldness of the girl who made these prank calls.  It is very fortunate that the cops were able to trace the calls and find out the girl.  I consider it a difficult task.  I believe there might have been a gang of students working on this idea 🙂

I feel, this might set a precedent for more such activities to be carried out.  Given the sensitive situation in India with respect to bomb threats, these calls cannot be completely ignored.  Think about a Software Engineer who wants to shirk work or a Government Employee who wishes to take off without wasting his sick leave, using this technique.  Hmm… This girl has introduced a new style of mischief, that could be beneficial to the person performing it and also guarantees lots of fun…

Losing your pants

Next time when you go for a drink, make sure that you have your belt on and your pants are tight on the hip.


I wonder what could be reasons behind the person losing his pants.

If it was a trick to get him intoxicated and rob the money, the perpetrators could have done so! But it could not be the case since the money was not stolen.

I could think of only a single reason behind this – may be the person was so drunk, that he assumed to have reached home when he was still in the yards and removed his pants to go to sleep.

Anyway, make sure this doesn’t happen to you. In India, you will end up losing your pants with the money and the shirt too!

NEW DELHI July 2 – With the presidential election impending, there is huge activity in and around Parliament. You will normally not see such busy activities in the premises. The Parliament, known for the MPs shouting and hitting each other, was seen bustling with conclaves and group meetings. Congress and BJP headquarters were no exception. BJP leaders were busy investigating the bio-data of the UPA Candidate Ms. Prathibha Patil to file new cases and Congress leaders were busy defending each of them. Latest complaint against Ms. Patil was the dowry she paid at the time of her marriage, which was against the law. With Kalam not so keen on contesting the election, the Third Front is busy spotting a candidate. Some Third Front leaders were spotted traveling around the country to find a suitable candidate. With so much competition for the top position in India, we citizens are the dumb-spectators and have our fingers crossed!

CHENNAI June 28 – Our chief reporter Rangasamy was very fortunate to get an appointment with ‘Sivaji fame’ director Shankar (pun intended). Shankar, who is very busy in the story for his next film, could spare only 15 minutes for the interview. Some excerpts from the interview.

Reporter Rangasamy: Hello Mr. Shankar. It is a great privilege that you have agreed to spare 15 minutes for us. Thanks for that. I would like to start with a question that is prevalent with the tamil fans. How was the Sivaji story born?

Shankar: I could not understand your question. Where is the story in Sivaji?

RR: But Sir, a movie is supposed to have a story…

Shankar: I know that. I always look forward to innovations. This is a first in the tamil industry, that a film is without a story. Isn’t it? The movie is all about Rajni Sir’s style, charm and humor. Nothing else.

RR: Great Sir. How did you choose Shreya for the role?

Shankar: I always feel heroines have no role to play in a film. They come, they dance, they smile and they cry. Their role ends there.

RR: Ok. How did the idea of ‘Fair’ Rajni strike you?

Shankar: I initially had a budget in mind. After everything was shot, still we had a huge amount left. We did not know how to spend that money. This gave rise to the idea of ‘Fair’ Rajni

RR: We had some good plots in your earlier movies like Gentleman or Indian. For instance, tracking down the suspect in Gentleman using the ‘mangalsutra’. Such plots are conspicuous by their absence in Sivaji

Shankar: Sivaji is a Rajni Sir film. Rajni sir compensates for everything else. Nobody goes to the movie for plots or story. They go only for Rajni sir. I understand the mind of a average movie goer, especially in Tamil Nadu. (Smiles)

RR: That is wonderful to hear. How did it struck you to paint Rajni’s face in the bellies of those dancing in the opening song?

Shankar: I always love painting. I have a tendency to paint in all places. If you look at my home there are paintings on the wall, on the floor, in the kitchen and also in the bathroom. In the opening song, there was a sequence where Nayanthara’s belly was painted like a pot. It was later removed by the censor (Grunts, don’t know for what reason)

RR: Sorry to hear that sir. After the movie, I had a feeling that I watched Gentleman and Indian movies together. Your comments on this…

Shankar: Ya, it has been a long time since Gentleman and Indian were released. So I thought I can remind people once again of that stories. That’s all.

RR: There is a talk in the town that Shankar’s films are grandiose but the story is wayward. Your comment on this…

Shankar: I am already late for my flight. Meet you later (runs away)

ThalaiVaangumPatti 27 June – Right to this moment, I have believed in the saying that ‘Smile a lot.  It costs nothing’.  But it does not always turn out to be true.

Pakkirisami is a resident of ThalaiVaangumPatti in Madurai district.  Right at the early age of 8, he had resolved to smile all the time.  Many a times it has turned out that his smile has ired persons around him, resulting in a brawl.  He was once beaten up for smiling continuously, when his neighbor’s house was robbed.  Right now, Pakkirisami is admitted to the GH in Madurai with a peculiar problem.  Due to excessive smiling and laughing, the muscles inside his chin are highly damaged.  Senior doctors say that an operation is required, which might cost around 2 Lakh Rupees.

So, I would like to rephrase the saying as follows.  “Smile a lot.  It is good, but sometimes it costs you something”.
