We're Back?

For a bit, anyway.

1. Know all sentient beings by these presents that our cell phone was stolen/lost on an overnight train the night of June 26th-27th. If you've tried to call/SMS between that time and about 30 minutes back (1900, 3-Jul-2008, IST) and wondered why no replies where forthcoming, well, now you know.

This also means that we've lost all your numbers and stuff. So you'll have to email us that stuff.

2. This also means that Phone Selection Agony (Re dux) is in full swing. Current frontrunner is the Nokia E51.

3. They've written a song about us. It's called Pappu Can't Dance, Saala. Go listen.

Most of the lines don't apply to us ("muscular", "popular", "blue eyes", "Rado", "gaadi tez", "diktha angrez" and so on). But bang on target about the "can't dance, saala."

Ayyo, Phone Loss Contagion! Incidentally, I have fotu of you and old phone, which you may like to frame for sentiment's sake. Pampistanu. Going by how lovingly you cling to it, how it was parted from you? yenyway, poni le...

that song is real funny. i sing it as Pappu Can't Dance, Sana; similar to the Ey Sana song from Rang De. Because I am a middle-aged middle-class domesticated lady who does not swear like that.

oh, the word verif. thing.

Haha, now I'm wondering why I didn't make the Pappu connection when I heard the song. And I thought pappu was some sort of khana?

Hatha vidhi! That's all that can be said. It's a long and sad story to be told over coffee and pastry or somesuch. Sometime soon.

I would've thought you would've jumped at the opportunity.

It is. It is to us what the jhol du macher is to you. Commit this to memory.

Macher jhol is disgusting.

By the way machhan, did you see the sambandhi reference in the lyrics?

"..Papa kehte hai bada naam karega,
Mera Pappu to aisa kaam karega..."

arre. Godel Escher Bach kind of self-referentiality no?
