Junk reading

From reading charming verse in printed books that left my eyes teary, I am down to consuming junk-reads online that leaves my eyes watery.

Swine Flu

New Yorkers used to "bless you" when you sneezed...now they scorn at you with a look that says "*@#$% you"

American Village

No matter how much Middletown is a wannabe city..masquerading beneath the existence of Walmart, Macy's and the like, its a village that would make Bharathiraja put his hands together and start a movie with his patented "Yen iniya Tamizh makkalae"

TV News

When was the last time something you watched on TV helped you tide over a crisis or something that you watched on Discovery stuck to your cranium?

All middle class professional Madhavans of the world who chide housewives watching Mega-serials - you are no different.

Nobody knows anything

Conversations in the coffee machine used to revolve around

* Sachin's overseas average minus sub-continent vs Rahul Dravid's,
* Effect of flyover construction on traffic congestion or
* occasionally around the girl who filled coffee just before...

It seemed pointless then, but it has sunk to new lows with

* Capital adequacy ratio
* CDOs
* Exports as a percentage of GDP

One wants to scream..guys wash the cups, dry your hands and get back to work.
