Munnabhai is happening and well, Gandhigiri too. Finally. The 'Lage Raho catchphrase setting Mumbaiyya fervor on fire. From Bandemataram to Bande-me-dam-hai… All very well. But have you, if you are a Hindi film buff, ever tried to decipher what all the slang words thrown in the film

RRIIIGHTT, POHYEE...That's your signal, the verbal gunshot for the endless race. Your sign to hold on tight to whatever it is that is closest to your hand. ...Grip the steel rod at the door, reach for the overhead one or the ubiquitous handrail - the one bordering all the seats.

For the love of Mike, I cannot understand this obsession with love. Everything happens, is happening or will happen, because of love or lack of love.

If you are looking for privacy enter the 'rest room' or the 'bathroom', as they are fondly called in this part of the world. That is one zone that has a steady membership, you might argue, but have you ever thought of the avenues this little room opens to?

The most confounding thing, I have learnt as a new `non’ NRI, is pouring milk from the sealed plastic packets on to the milk cooker, first thing in the mornings. Seriously, the blasted thing simply gives way, letting milk flow from whichever side that it fancies. There have been mornings when, after making a small incision, I have looked helplessly at the milk seeping out of the packet and on to the kitchen counter and well, to the floor as if it had reached its destination.
 
A touch too romantic to begin, but that's where I was a couple of months ago. Far away from everything Mangalore. Dreaming of dark gray clouds and the tap-tap sound of rain drops on the clay-tiled roof. I once did a rain dance with my cousins to calm dark clouds brewing up a storm in the horizon.
