Writing 101, day 14: Recreate a single day.

Magic of Hug

Only once in my life time I did a mischievous act and got punished for it. Friends do it every time play prank on others and got away with it. 

I pulled the chair when my friend was going to sit, she fell down. Nothing happened to her but the chair’s arm fell down too. I was summoned to Mother Superior. She calmly fined me Rs. 13 without any scolding.

When I told my mother, She paid the fine but she scolded me terribly even after me saying sorry to her and my friend, and also that it was my first mischief. Wasn’t I her youngest and pet child? How could she do it to me? 

 I did not eat and went to sleep early. 

After some time I felt a warm drop on my cheek and a hand…

Why aren’t we talking about Cockroaches?

I want to know. I really really do! why cats, why not cockroaches? Pages after pages filled with nothing but poems and essays and stories about cats, what’s with that?

Some people asked me if this was the reason I have been missing from blogosphere, why, yes, I was! So disturbed and depressed was I with the kind of shoddy treatment cockroaches have been getting  that I left this world. Out there in the space I met some really intelligent people who told me future belongs to cockroaches, not cats. They advised me to return to my planet and work on making the world cockroach friendly.




1) Kittens can happen to anyone. ~Paul Gallico

Why Sir, so can cockroaches, what’s with this song and noise?

2)“I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat.”

Edgar Allan Poe


 something that has been here for millions of years, survived nuclear attacks,  living -procreating under your cabinets, behind the walls. You think it is gone, but a lil heat and damp, it re-surfaces. All these and much more and you still think Cats are mysterious?

ask the pesterminators what keeps them awake at nights, ask the scientists if they are sure the latest spray can get rid of roaches completely and they run and hide in a cabinet and howl like a mad wolf.

I wish I could scribble like cockroaches Mr. Poe!

3) “The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats…”
Albert Schweitzer

oh pulheeese, no way. Go get some bagels. cockroaches are proof that you have food clothes, toothbrushes ,hair , fresh or decaying matter in possession. either this or you live in sewer, either way you have something!!

something= cockroaches=no miserable


4) “I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.”
Winston S. Churchill

lol lol lol  Mr.Churchill you said Pigs. LOL ROFLLMAO. Am sure you meant Cockroaches

5) “Of all God’s creatures, there is only one that cannot be made slave of the leash. That one is the cat….
Mark Twain

ha ha ha yeah Mr. Twain cos we sure can make cockroaches our slaves

6) It is impossible to keep a straight face in the presence of one or more kittens.

~Cynthia E. Varnado


7) There has never been a cat
Who couldn’t calm me down
By walking slowly
Past my chair.
~Rod McKuen

Well Mr. McKuen, There has never been a cockroach who couldn’t get me up By waking slowly Past my chair. what do you have to say about that huh?


There I have proved each and every anti- cockroach person wrong. In fact before publishing this article I sent a copy of this excellent piece I created to all of writers mentioned ( yes all of them) and all of them have since apologised. They have realised their folly.

But what about you COMMON PEOPLE, when will you understand the power of coackroaches, or will you rather be unprepared and be treated a slave in a Cockroach World?


Join now or be left behind with nothing but regrets and no entry to rock concerts, ever.

Hope with this post I have succeded in creating awareness about THE MIGHTY, SUPREMELY TALENTED, MYSTERIOUS COCKROACHES.

(if not, do write so that I can repost it till you get it.)

Thanks and happy HOLI

Rajeev Gandhi Memorial on Beach road Rajeev Gandhi Memorial on Beach road

11th October    was    being celebrated   as     KARBA   CHAUTH     (a new element   to RENEW bonding between wife and husband being heavily   propagated   by   TV SERIAL   all over India).  Though there   was     a   threat of   CYCLONE   “ hud Hud”    over   Vizag, most   of us ignored   it   as,(  in    previous   occasions    of   such   alarm ) we had to cut a sorry figure   in narrating    our   absolutely “TROUBLE FREE “life    and  faced difficulty   in describing    a few   millimeter   rise of   WAVE in the   sea.

Our flat    is located on the second row of   apartments    from   beach road.

At  about   6 PM  , I   informed    my  anxious   son   and daughter     ( Mumbai   and   Delhi )  that   there  was  a clear  sky   with   visible  moon    for   Karba  chauth   calibration    .  They laughed    but    CAUTIONED     US    not to take things lightly  …

Har Har Hyena

Every time a politician makes a speech, a hyena dies laughing
laughter is contagious, isn’t it? you see someone laughing loud or uncontrollably for some time, you will start laughing or smiling too. This is what laughter yoga is based on too!!
 They say a good hearty laughter is good for health , but I have seen people getting scared of my laughing avatar , which may be because when I laugh I look like a witch with sinister plans bubbling in the cauldron of my head. 
Can’t blame the scared ones, for 99% of times it is some mischief brewing up  or already taken shape, which makes me break into long hearty spells of laughter. Got to admit I laugh a lot, so when I post LOL in any of your blog posts, I am actually laughing at that time, hey I can multitask!
hyenas, now why would you ask about them, how strange!!!……..oh sorry I started it.
so why does a hyena laugh, well there can be many reasons behind it.
like how they are not affected by the unreal hike in prices of commodities or never ever have to buy a house…
Do you know that the word hyena is derived from a Greek work hyaina which means pig!
Did anyone ever ask the pigs how they felt about this whole issue? No.  And this is why Hyenas roll with laughter even more.
Then there is this whole origin confusion which is very hyena funny.
I mean at first no one knew what they were, including the hyenas. They had characteristics of the civet cat then they decided to be dog like then wolf like then cheetah like and now they are more of bear like..whoa this should have had the entire animal kingdom lolling for rest of the life time but i guess only crocodiles and hyenas found it funny and tortoise just hid it self into the shell.
and if you don’t think these are reasons enough for a hyena to laugh wait till you know about their his and her thing!
The genitalia of male and female hyenas are strikingly similar in fact the other day a bull who couldn’t tell the difference ended up asking a male hyena for a date..
 The Male Hyena agreed and they are in a complicated relationship as per their Facebook status, but let’s keep it for another post.
I know why Female hyenas  laugh, they are bigger than the males and they have three times more testosterone, whooaaa super girls, yay
Hey who can tell me why do the giraffes have long neck?
I can I can
err you asked the question Monica
but I know the answer! It’s because when hyenas meet they greet each other with one leg up smelling each others private part which is very gross and this is the very reason why giraffes prayed to god for years to give them long neck and spare them all the ugliness….it is funny you know to meet like that…. yeah I am gross too. No I don’t smell people, I meant funny as in  ……never mind
Still worried that hyenas are not laughing for right reasons?
Did you know hyenas have the ability to digest the entire body of  their prey: bones, horns, hair, skin, even teeth. Zero wastage!! whoaa of course they have the last laugh and to help them ornate every occasion with laughter they have very big heart, literally, 10% of their body weight is heart so they can afford to have a real hearty laugh whenever they wish to!
And last but not the least even God wanted Hyenas to laugh.
don’t agree!
well the Hyena babies are born with teeth!
see I told ya, this proves two things, God wants Hyenas to laugh and second he loves crocodiles.
Of course there are people who would say hyenas don’t laugh because they think something is funny. Why You Sheldon Coopers!

Anyways it turns out the “laughing” is actually a noise they make when they are excited or frightened.  Nervous laughter, now don’t we all know about them…
My dear friends now that you know all you ever wanted to know about hyenas you must be happy and all set to laugh for laughter doesn’t need no reason or season and let’s admit it’s always fun to scare people with loud prolonged laughter.
Have a great day and do not forget to watch the video.
