those three little words!

Bundu, you suck: coming from a friend it's a endearing description.

Bundu, you suck: coming from an enemy it's an apt insult.

Bundu, you suck: coming from a sage, it's a startling revelation.

Bundu, you suck: coming from himself, it's a baseline.

Bundu, you suck: coming from a girl, it's a romantic request.

Bundu, you suck: coming from the gym instructor, it's a command.

"Your problem looks largest when you're standing smack in the center."

whatmarkism volume.6:

"If you ignore a voice long enough,
it will eventually go way."

PS: Unfortunately, this is true both of the dreams as well as the derogatory.

whatmarkism volume.5:

When someone says "I need to pee badly",
do they go into the loo and pee all over the place?

Smoke Signals

Points to ponder:

If a girl who's good looking takes a puff, does it make her smoking hot? (thank you Dannielle)

What exactly is smoke on the water about?

Why did i watch Smokey and the Bandit 25 times?

Have you listened to Smokie lately?

Is a volcano mother earth's smoke signal?

How come anti-smoking campaigns are discussed between art directors and copywriters sharing a cigarette?

"we will smoke 'em out." who is the we in that statement?

"Smokin'" Quick! who said that?

whatmarkism: volume.2

"I get this sneaky feeling that life is slowly trying to kill me"

The man with 3 b***s?

Ok this is a Salute.

To a friend who risked life and limb to puruse a 12-year dream to ride from Delhi to Leh on a bullet. (Rumor has it, that he waited long so that he could grow enough body hair to withstand the cold. But that is a just rumor).

Anyway, to be completely fair to both him and his trusted bullet, i think it's fabulous that someone would have the determination and all the borderline signs of dementia to actually do this. (Rumor has it that the bullet has the determination, he shows the dementia.)

ok, we're digressing.

So here's raising a toast to the quick and the brave. Ladies, Gentlemen, and Yaks of all ages, do join me a round of applause for the one and only: Mr. Hetch.

PS: the title is only temporary. and it does not stand for b-u-l-l-s, you imbecile!
Any suggestions?

A Limerick

There once was a tourist in Leh,

Who learnt much to his dismay,

The girls dressed in layers of clothes.

Why he took so long no one knows.

And he remains a virgin to this day.

Addiction: to each his own

I know you can tell just by looking at my face
A word about my weakness
I'm totally addicted to bass
- Amiel

Its closer to the truth to say
you cant get enough,
you Know youre
Gonna have to face it,
youre addicted to love
- Robert Palmer

She never mentions the word addiction
In certain company
Yes, she'll tell you she's an orphan
After you meet her family
- The Black Crowes

I'm addicted to that rush
Every time we touch
Never get enough
'Cause I'm addicted to that rush - Yeow!
- Mr. Big

In a dream I cannot see
Tangled abstract fallacy
Random turmoil builds in me
I'm addicted to chaos
- Megadeth

I’m addicted baby
It’s plain to see
Your love’s
Got a hold on me
- LeRoux

Maybe I'm addicted,
I'm out of control,
but you're the drug
that keeps me from dying.
- Enrique

Sunday, Bloody Sunday.

The worst Sundays are when the Preacher manages to stab you in the heart repeatedly with the Truth.

Last Sunday was particularly ruthless. The man talked about his work with the Prostitutes living in Andheri, Mumbai.

Stab 1: The count stood at about 1 lakh girls.

Stab 2: The girl is most likely to be between 12 and 14.

Stab 3: Cost of buying a girl: Rs. 4000. (not for a night - for life)

Stab 4: The 4000-rupee girl was sold by her father.

Stab 5: The girls are initially raped and beaten so that their wills and spirits are broken.

Stab 6: Many of them will die of HIV-related diseases.

Stab 7: For reasons i don't understand, the girls can never leave. So when an offer was made, they handed over 32 "born-by-mistake-in-the-brothel" children aged between 1 and 3, to be taken to safer, better lives.

I am still bleeding.
