October Festivals in India and Wombat day

October has been kind so far, not without the allergies and flu’s, but kind and with many reasons to celebrate. The Bengali‘s  are gearing up for Durga puja ( celebrating goddess Durga‘s victory over the evil demon Mahishasur) others are decorating pandals for RamaNavmi ( the period when Lord Ram ( Ramayana) killed The king of demons Ravana ( lot of cultures celebrate differently and have a slightly different versions).

Both are 10 days of grand celebrations, Festival of colours, food, people of streets, tons of shopping  and laughter..but food comes first.
And If you thought Indian food is all about curries then think again..
Go for Luchi and Kosha mangsho, Macher chop, Mochar ghonto, Devils chop, Patishapta, Rashogulla, Payesh, Shondesh …..oh I can go one and this will be a very big post.
We Bengali’s are known for our passion for Food,Songs,Dance and Books… Next time you want to try Indian food, ask for some Gujarati/ Bengali/South Indian  sweets and savouries, trust me you will forget the curries.
But October this year has given me one more reason to be happy, 22nd of this month is World Wombat day and its a big day not just for my lovely friends the Wombies from  but all of us part Wombies too 🙂
It will be  day of fun, humour, chocolates, marshmallows, spams, double chocolates, triple chocolates, death by chocolates, crazychoco delights and love, in short everything that can make this world a better place.
So while Mrs.Bee stings everybody in town,
Mr.Grr never stops finding fault every adjective,verb and noun
Tom and Brady hallucinate being in star wars
& Peter and Mash dream and fantasize about turbo power flying cars,
Sarah prays day and night for a magical moonstone
And Jason spends whole day perfecting macaroons and scones
Humpty Dumpty enjoy a  fight between werewolves and vampires
and Doomsday Preppers get ready for the alien attacks  on the human empire
while politicians keep making promises trying to win the polls
and everything else is hacked every now and then by the  trolls
let us for this one day forget everything and enjoy the day with chocolates and Wombats.
I made this short promotional teaser for those who want to know more,  its  a 2 minute clip so please do watch it.and do not forget to visit the wombies and book your seat( its free )
I surf around in wombie land even when it is not a cartoon day,there is so much fun. And if you don’t see me there then know that there is something seriously wrong on my side. Being the extremely considerate blogger that I am I  have a wombie absent chart prepared for you.
This will tell you why I may be missing from all the wombania fun.
  1. Didn’t comment on wombie cartoon once- i am sick
  2. Missed the second cartoon too- very very sick
  3. what!!!! not there for the 3rd cartoon 😯 –  kidnapped..send a search party guys!
  4. nope didnt show up for the fourth time in a row- read prayers for my departed soul ( damn she was a great soul, Why god why)
  5. sudden come back after being absent for a long interval- released from jail ( hey i aint no saint )
so now you know every thing about everything, do visit Wombania on 22nd for fun and try a different Indian cuisine next time 🙂
wish you all a lovely weekend 🙂

Never hug a Tiger

In the Jungle of Ti lived a tiger
who one night hugged a spider
they were drunk and it was halloween
strange spells were floating in those deep dark greens
now the tiger just sits and spins webs and traps food
but when the spider roars and runs, insects laugh, how rude!

October News Blues

As soon as October hit the town so did a Horrible terrible news. Someone was told by someone, who got this news from someone who was told by this someone that  3rd of October was going to be the scariest spookiest night

That was all that was said on the first of this month, some one tweeted, some re-tweeted, some blogged. some re-blogged and soon it became bigger than what was said in the beginning…..

By morning of 3rd October of it was end of the world news,

3oo demons who were aliens who were zombies
with venom of pit viper were going to attack the town
But Julien was angry not scared that day
she had just spent so much on her wedding gown!!
some took all that they could and hid under their bed,
some took refuge in their wine cellar and drank whole night.
( it was their tribute to their collection )
some drove as fast as they could to get out of the town and reach someplace safe, but landed up in jail for a night
( it is the safest place on earth, ask the Politicians)
some hid in the grave yard ( brilliant,
cos none of the 300 evil venom spewing monsters would have ever looked there)
some decided to stay in their cars, some on the roofs, some in the tree house
and some just ran and ran and ran till they could run no more (and broke all the world records)
Then there was this rock band which was not popular at all, they played their music on the street’s whole night
(The idea was to get famous like the musicians of Titanic)
This must be the reason why the town was spared that night, said someone later (some one is jealous of the band )
And then there was little Kipkomp who painted his mom’s favourite sheet black and wrapped around him to become invisible
(I am sure his mom got a bad heart burn that night
but it was last day on earth kind of situation so she kept mum)
3oo demons who were aliens who were zombies
with venom of pit viper were going to attack the town
some tried keeping calm and helping others
But the brave spent the night with cuss, fuss and frown
Everyone prayed and asked god to spare their lives in exchange for all the good they had done or thought and wished the scary things attacked someone else, like the politician they didn’t like  or the one who knew their secret or someone who they thought was not worthy of life at all.
[Angels were busy shredding wishes like these that night]
Anyways so nothing happened that night and morning of 4th everyone found out, it was all just a rumour. People made fun of each other and claimed they knew all about  it from the very beginning and were playing along to see how far others would go.
3oo demons who were aliens who were zombies
with venom of pit viper were going to attack the town
Jim was just pretending to be scared
But Mr X , oh he is such a clown!
So next day when the entire town was busy with doing nothing good, our Little Kipkomp was trembling with fear, for him the rumour had become truth and a scary thing was coming for her favourite sheet which was now painted black. He was praying with all he had for at least one alien attack.
( Please God help,how many times does a kid ask you for an alien or a monster attack
if you help me today I  promise I will listen to mom and not draw  on the walls)
I am so glad it turned out to be a rumour and everyone is safe .
BTW did you hear what they are saying about 6th of this month…All the spirits evil and bad…..
