one liners or two

Standard

**
loud thought bubbles in the supermarket that i can read: : “isn’t that too much hair oil for one family? isnt that too much hairoil for one head?”

**
baby param, at 3, has a manish malhotra gene. “can you tell her she’s wearing a lovely dress, amma” he says, when he sees his 9 y.0. friend walking in. i hope it’ll grow into a tim gunn gene.

**
i watched firstborn in the republic day assembly today. he and 20 other children were singing sare jahan se achcha. a

nd seconds before the song begins… (the fidgeters have settled down, the school is all quiet watching in expectancy… )

firstborn is turning his back to the school and the teachers, and is talking to his friend.

i stared. then i said shush from where i was standing. and prayed he would hear me.
really prayed.
he didnt.

the only time he wasnt talking was when he was singing! Completely chatty Karan Johar gene. *sigh*

  1. So you have Manish Malhotra and KJo all sewn up. Now does that make mmmim SRK and you Kajol/Rani Mukherjee? Or no, if mmmim is SRK, you’d be Gauri Khan. The entire Bollywood power nexus in MiM’s household, nice.

  2. You NEVER say shush to a child on stage. That WAS a part of his performance, dont you see? It was the prologue to the song. A deep critique, and then the rendition, there would have been the post script but SOMEONE RUDE shushed the star performer.

    Skip Manish Malhotra, make it any other designer, please. MM and Kjo can not appear on this blog, i might have to leave this space for good.

    • hey! i live in KL!

      kuch kuch hota hai was trending on twitter here last week, because it was shown on local tv. and ALL comments were positively loving…:-)

    • ah. a mystery the world will never know…

      i guess, a secret that has to be discussed at that point in time, and is kinda dim in memory three seconds later

    • what? another non-fan. shah rukh khan has a title from Malaysia… he’s a datuk. so that makes K Jo a half datuk… already gets my stamp of approval. only the giggling is a lil much

  3. One liners or two:
    At the comp: Thought bubble appears above head peering into the monitor – Wonder if MIM has checked her comments and given sharp replies. Or is she still caught up in measuring ingredients for one extra person at dinner?

    While shutting down comp :Thought bubble appears above head peering into the monitor – Wonder if MIM has checked her comments and given sharp replies. Oh she IS still caught up in measuring ingredients for one extra person at dinner. Must remember to make a list of measurements for each and every recipe in an indian kitchen and send it to sharp lady sitting in malaysia.
