Some news tidbits last week made me think.
Seventeen cricketers- 'sold' for Rs 30 crores- for the IPL(Lovingly called 'Indian Paisa League' by one TV channel)....err,you did say there's a recession going on?
I did wonder whether this money couldn't have been better used to help some industries out of recession? Or, maybe, it has, in a way- the cricketers who were 'purchased' can rest easy!!
Another news tidbit- the moral police are at it again- the SRS group in Bangalore, which has announced that any 'couple' seen in a 'Valentine'like pose on 14.02, will be married off forcibly.Come to think of it-that might be a good idea...at least all the lakhs which go down the drain in wedding celebrations will be saved...another indirect measure to fight recession,I guess. I did wonder why no film-maker has thought of making a 'different' love story on this topic?
These jokes are from Ritu's blog- spoken by her children and their friends-so innocent, I requested her to let me use them for a post. Thanks, Ritu.
Joke 1:When Ram, Sita and Lakshman were going on vanvasa (exile), their loved one gave them three mobile phones to stay in touch.
After a few days, one day Ram and Lakshman went into the jungle. A few hours later, Sita called Ram and said, "Ram, I can see Ravana coming on a bicycle. I am very scared."
Ram assured her, "Don't worry Sita. Ravana does not know how to ride doubles!"
Joke 2:Five boys are discussing the new cars their dads are buying.
"If my dad buys a red car, I will wear a red t-shirt" says one.
"If my dad buys a green car, I will wear a green t-shirt" says the other.
"If my dad buys a blue car, I will wear a blue t-shirt" says the third boy.
"If my dad buys a white car, I will wear a white t-shirt" says another.
The last boy: "My dad is not buying a car, so I will not wear anything."
Amazing, the humour in little kid's talks! I needed those jokes to make me come out of a whacked out day at work!
Till next time, keep smiling!
