Random Thoughts 28

∙ We are always torn between three lives.
One which we actually lead.
One which we show the world we lead.
One which we really want to lead.

∙ Behind every successful man is a woman who’s complaining that he never listens to her in the first place and probably became a success by fluke.

∙ I think when the plane stops, since everyone is in such a tearing hurry (to God knows where), they should just open the emergency exits and people should simply slide away.

∙ Question to sadhu: Life is so simple and yet we make it complicated. I know this. So why do we always make life so complicated?
Sadhu: Arre bhaiyya, nahin to tumhara is lambi zindagi main time pass kaise hoga?

∙ Spending money is the number one time pass of this generation!

∙ Just as you can’t see dark matter but feel its influence, you can’t see black money but see its influence.

Money can and cannot buy…

Money can’t buy you love, but it sure can buy you sex.

Money can’t buy you happiness, but it sure can get you temporary gratification.

Money can’t buy you God, but it sure can influence religious leaders.

Money can’t buy you a happy marriage, but it sure can settle a messy divorce.

Money can’t buy you respect, but it sure can buy you fear.

Money can’t buy you a happy family, but it sure can shut them up.

Money can’t buy the world, but it sure can help you see most of it.

P.S. Who has seen true love and happiness anyway?

And who has really met God?

…and that brings us straight back to Money…

Why only PJ? Why not BR32PDJ?

Tired of “Good Joke” and “Poor Joke” being just about the only ways to classify jokes, The Indian Institute of Social Welfare for Jokes has decided to introduce a brand new classification scheme.

When you listen to a joke, weigh in your mind how good or bad it is and classify accordingly…

FBCJ: Forbes Billionaire Class Joke.

RJ: Rich Joke.

MCJ: Middle Class Joke.

PJ: Poor Joke.

RPJ: Really Poor Joke.

BPLJ: Below Poverty Line Joke.

DCJ: Destitute Class Joke.

And finally, the absolute worst of all jokes…

BR32PDJ: Below Rs 32 Per Day Joke.

Random Thoughts 27

∙ Sometimes I think mankind is a suicide bomber bent on blowing up the Earth.

∙ In the good ole days, most people’s lives used to go nowhere slowly.
Nowadays, most people’s lives go nowhere pretty fast.
That’s progress I guess.

∙ With so little time and so little rest nowadays, the phrase should changed to…
“I need 20 winks of sleep!

∙ Contemporary word meanings…
Baroque: Highly ornate and extravagant in style.
Barack: Highly ornate and extravagant in style of speech.

∙ An Indian rubbed a genie and was granted one wish. Being a true patriot, he asked for all the corrupt people in India to simply vanish.
Suddenly there was absolutely no-one to rule the nation and India quickly slipped into anarchy and became the world’s most failed nation.

Random mobile telephony thoughts…

∙ Your lifetime prepaid mobile message should actually read…
Your balance is XXX INR. Your validity expires on December 31, 2037, even though you may not live that long and even though we may not last that long and even though we all haven’t the foggiest idea what the state of mobile telephony and billing will be in the Year 2017, let alone 2037!
.
∙ Competition among mobile operators is extremely fierce.
It’s quite difficult to tell who has the greatest number of call drops or who’s Help Desk keeps you on hold the longest or who has the lousiest billing problems.
.
∙ The 3G ads are so good and promising that they make you feel like an absolute idiot for having 2G in the first place.
.
∙ In India, at least everyone is heading towards Roti, Kapada aur Mobile.

Random Thoughts 25

• You know that New Year Resolutions are just another form of GIGO, called RIRO…
GIGO=Garbage In Garbage Out.
RIRO=Resolution In Resolution Out.

• Does the collective optimism of a few billion people on the eve of December 31 actually help kick-start a new year better?

• The only reason there is more hope and optimism with every successive December 31 is because the firecrackers are getting better and more in number.

• The media is managing to dig up more and more depressing news with every successive year. That helps with the optimism part on December 31 night at least!

• If it’s a really good resolution, then you don’t have to wait till the New Year.
And if you’ve put off the resolution for the New Year, then the Resolution may well continue to be put off way after that.

Random Thoughts 21

• It was once said that if a hundred people repeated a lie a hundred times, it becomes a truth. Well, the Internet would put even Joseph Goebbels to shame. A million people repeat a lie in the form of chain letters, email forwards and other sundry articles a few million times and we have millions of untruths posing around cyberspace as truths. I don’t think anyone knows the definition of truth any more.

• There is an invisible undetectable device that slows down time on weekends and speeds them up on week days.

• America is run by billionaires. They call them industrialists.
India is run by billionaires. We call them politicians.

• Every Indian anchor thinks he’s a polished version of Hard Talk when he’s nothing but another version of Rude Talk.
