How to complete any Project..

B

(An intelligent man must be focused on his ultimate aim)


I hadn't thought the PROJECT would come to me. The Project manager had never trusted me on it. To be honest, I wasn't keen on getting it either.

But you know wot they say...some people are born with skills and some are made to do it....forcefully (er..something like that I'm sure) and so I was inveriably chosen for the task.

So I was called in the room. It seemed like a meeting between a superior being and a lowly human a.k.a ME whose life depended on his performance of what he was being told to be responsible of. So....eyes wide, ears open to the max...I took in every single spoken word, my brain on full alert.

MY MOTHER - the project leader and I sat in the dining room.

She looked at me and said...."Beta, are you sure you will be able to do your 'vegetable buying project' well today ?? Can I trust you ??".
I responded, looking shocked, "What?? Ofcourse. Duh !!"

She sat on the chair opposite me and gave me the list of vegetables I had to buy that evening for the house. I knew I was soon gonna be in uncharted territory.

As I wrote the items down, she INSISTED on repeating them so I din't miss anything. "Beta, pao kilo Chota Bengan, pao kilo Doodhi, 4 or 5 Neebu, Haraa Dhaniya masala with everything including kadi patta and........" She gave me the names of some 3 or 4 more vegetables to buy. "And while coming back , get some dahi. Oh, and don't forget your toothpaste too."

I had jotted everything down on a piece of paper.

"Ek baar aur sun le....Pao kilo Bengan...pao kilo....", She went again.
I said, "Yaa Maa, I know, I know already. I've written them down. See??" I showed her the list I had prepared.

"and the toothpaste." She completed. "Ok, okkk. I will I will. Now, mind if I leave?" I asked. "Ya go..but don't forget Dahi...but only when you're coming back not....". I ran out of the house to escape.
.
.
.
(A good Project Leader must first form a plan of action.)
My plan excelled in simplicity. It was a 3 STEP PLAN that just couldn't go wrong:

STEP 1) Go to Market.
STEP 2) Find Vegetables on list.
STEP 3) Buy vegetables on list.

Could it get any simpler than this ??
The "KISS" philosophy - "Keep It Short and Simple" is not something many follow. Those who do - are a happy lot.

(A competent Project Leader must not only form a plan but must keep a BACKUP plan ready as well...jus in case.)
My backup plan was the SMS that I had sent to my sweet little rakhi-sis - Neha (FYJC - Student of Arts) in my society who helps me sometimes in such undaunting tasks, asking her to be ready to help me with any and everything jus' in case somethin' went wrong (read - forget something).

"What bhai...not againnn!! Ok, wotever." was her reply to my SMS. I was satisfied. Backup was in check. So now all I had to do was put the original plan into action. And I did exactly that.

Step 1. GO TO MARKET :
(A smart Project Leader must make sure he has logistics co-ordinates in place.)
Time: Evening - 6:02 pm.
Market place was no more than 15 minutes away. My bike would help me make it in 7. I reached there in precisely 7 minutes and the parking took the next 2. No time lost. Kool.

The vegetable Market on a Sunday evening is like the Share market on a Monday morning. People everywhere. Buy buy buy. Sell sell sell...sell now...NOW DAMMIT NOW.
This was easy and going according to the plan and there was no reason why it should not be a smooth sailing ahead.

Step 1 was done. It was now TIME to put step 2 into action.


Step 2. FIND VEGETABLES ON LIST :
(The project leader must, in addition to taking care of logistics support, ensure a timeline to his project.)

I hoped to complete step 2 in no more than a few minutes.
I could see vegetables everywhere. All I had to do was to bring out the list I had prepared and.... the rest was.... no problemo.
So I got the list and a pencil out so I could tick off each item as I would buy 'em off.

I had spotted a vendor who I was gonna pick. He had the most varieties of vegetables on display. 'Target was spotted and was visual in nature'. The Mission was already half way through.

Step 2 had taken no more than roughly 5 to 7 measly minutes. It was done and put out of the way. Now it was TIME to put the last and final step into action.


Step 3. BUY VEGETABLES ON LIST :
(A smart Project Leader must always remember Dharamji's advice.."chun chun ke maroonga")

It was important that I picked them up one by one. Doodhi was first on the list. I reached the vendor and asked for it's price. It was 10 bucks a piece. A PIECE??

"Piece?? pieces main bechna kab se shuru kiya aap logon ne ?", I asked him. He looked at me like I was an alien just landed from Mars. He said, "Huh? Aisiech hai. Leneka hai kya?". Well, it was jus 10 bucks. Wot the heck. I bought it, put it in the bag and ticked off Doodhi on the list.

I had just about moved to the side to check my list when I heard a lady bargain with the same vendor for the same vegetable and take it in 8. 8 bucks?? Damn, I was ripped off by 2 bucks in my very first buy.


(An intelligent Project Leader must be non-voilent in nature and learn from his mistakes.)
I learnt. First thing I did was find another vendor. There was one thing prevalent everywhere though - vendors were much better with their bargaining skills than I was. Way way better.

So, finally after having bought all the vegetables on the list one by one and not forgetting Dahi at the end (while coming back) and ticking them all off in the list...I had finally completed my final step.


MY MISSION WAS OVER. A few hitches here and there but it was done - SUCCESFULLY.

(A Project Leader who expects to be paid at the end of the month and appreciated for his work must file his report of Success before the end of the month)

THE REPORT : (was duly given to the Project leader on reaching back home.)
A) Project completed in 32 minutes 42 seconds. (2 minutes, 42 seconds over-shoot was compensated by logistics cover in distance by riding faster on the bike while coming back home.)
B) All Vegetables bought.
C) Dahi not forgotten.
D) Saved money - none. 10 Rs over-shoot (Compensated by taking it off my own wallet. Original Project Leader not reported about this.)

LOL. But it was FUN !!


Ok, By the way u guys........the prices are so bloody STEEP here.
Dhoodhi - 10 bucks a piece... ok 8...wotever.
Brinjal - 24 bucks a kg
Cualiflower - 8 bucks a piece
Lady finger - 25 bucks a kg.
OH MAH GAWD !!

Is the rate same over there too...where YOU are??? Or have I been had??

(PS: I confess I'm NOT a good vegge shopper. But I did learn a thing or 2 doing this "project". I guess management does teach you a few things on the side, eh?)

188 Spoke their mind: yep, makes a difference !!

Rakesh Vanamali said...

Nowadays....when I hear of a project being assigned to me.....I kinda freak.....talk of being heavily loaded forever!

And yeah....I have to concede.....I've never been a good veggie shopper ever......the same cant be said when I go shopping for clothes and accessories though, that I enjoy! ;)

Talk about being appreciated.....what ever is that? Neva heard of sumthing like 'at! :(

Anshu said...

will read it now but am too happy to be the 2nd person to see the blog.

Anand said...

Rakesh bro........... Freak is the right word. Exactly my reaction when I was assigned this particular prject. Lol.

Well, I guess it's better to be a good vegge shopper than being a good clothes shopper. Food comes FIRST, doesn't it??

Anshu said...

hey the rates r cheaper than here atleast...u r learning....good work keep it up.

Anand said...

Anshu.................Hi. I wud hv been happy with u reading it..regardless of the number ya. :-)

Anand said...

Anshu........... Cheaper. I jus hope I didn't get ripped off. I don't usualy go vegge shopping u know.

I was like a lost ship in the vegge ocean.

Sakshi said...

Oops when did ya post this??? and I just ended up posting a long long comment on the previous post?? Boy U r smart to divert things when u r in danger na?? Ok will come back and read what this post is all about though the damn first graphical pic gives me goosebumps...that's a damn weakness..me and statistics and maths...boo...hooo

Imp's Mom said...

oye what abt the toothpaste? and yea those are the rates, give or take a few rs here and there... and don't freak out, don't u knw practice makes one better!

thanks for the laugh :)

Anand said...

Sexy honey.............Im yet to read your lon long comment on my earlier post.

Yea well....the ruse works, inni? CHange of tactics, quick on the feet, head on the shoulders and...uh...uh... fing..ers on ur palms....uh....damn....wot was I saying??? I lost myself there.

And nnaahhhh, dontcha worry...it's not all management ...no maths or stats etc... relax....

Anand said...

Jyoti.............DAMN !!! I KNEW I was forgetting something there...The damn TOOTHPASTE.
Shucks...I'll get to that too..no worries.

Hey U liked?? :-)

JoJO a. said...

Hahaha oh.. guys will be guys...

I remember the days when a loaf of bread was 99cents... now find me a bag of bread that's 3 bucks and I'll tell you it's an amazing price.

We'll all sink one day.

We need a plan!

QUIETUDE N said...

vegetables in jaipur r a bit costlier as compared to mumbai.well i wont mention the vegetable rate list but to buy stuff like vegetables u need patience more than plans!!

ARUNA said...

hahaha Andy u r so sweet to give the girl-gang a chance to gossip thru ur post!!!!!!!!
But yeah congrats on getting such a difficult project....should appreciate the project leader for trusting u so much!
When u said " An intelligent man must be focused on his ultimate aim".....who were u referring to????
Looks like ultimately u brought loss to the company, isn't it!!!!
Was the project leader happy with ur performance at the end of the project!!!!!
Did u get a promotion or demotion!!!
Hey pls give my regards to the project leader....will ya!!

Anand said...

Jojo..........Well, l wrote it as a guy wud go about it. Lol. :-)

Have patience. We wont sink. But ur rite....we DO need a plan for sure.

Imp's Mom said...

yea I liked :-) get that toothpaste dude!

and aruna, gotta luv u girl.... muah...i totally missed all those points.. lol...

Anand said...

Quite................Well.....the next time I go, I go armed with patience as well. BUT....

fat chance of me doing that..again. Heee.. ;-)

Anand said...

Aruna babyyy.............Ahhhhh me not going no chance to no body. I enjoy the company of you guys jus as much.

Thank u, thank u. By that line I was trying to refer to...uh... myself. Uh....which leg of mine wud u like to have..to pull??

NO promotion / demotion. I've quit the job. Hee.

And ur regards will be given to the Project Leader. DOne. How sweet. :-)

workhard said...

Hey Mr Management.. ...

First of all you forget stuff like Imps Mom mentioned, then like Aruna mentioned u get the company in loss....Top it all You Quit.. What are you.. Lead By Bad Example..LOL

Anand said...

Woookieee....... Yea I fgot. The company wasn't really in a loss. I compensated it.

All of this and MORE happens when you do a thing for the first time.

Atleast I tried. And I learned. The next time I do it..I'll be better...maybe even make profit.
No? SHucks.

ARUNA said...

Andy u always maaro kulhaadi on ur leg......u understand wat i'm saying, if u don't understand then say "SHE SELLS SEA SHELLS ON THE SEA SHORE".....3 Times.....comeon...fast!!!!!!!!

Anand said...

Aruna......Ohh that such kid stuff... I say that all the time and I've bloody bought some shells frm that "SHE" too.
U say "gig whip" 5 times fast if u can. And make sure u say it full.

ARUNA said...

OMG i'm getting so much addicted to this blogging.....every 5 min i open the blog to check the 'S A A W I' Comments!

ARUNA said...

huh i meant S for saakshi, A for Anshu, A for ofocurse Andy boy, W for workhard and I for Imp's mom!!!!!!!!!

Anand said...

Aruna................Ohhhhh That's smart. I had got it except that I thot the end letter was L. 'I' makes sense now.

SAAWI... haha. Sounds Koool.
SO when YOU say SAAWI..u include me but when I say SAAWI..I include YOU. Kool, I say.

workhard said...

Aruna.. u a mastermind girl.. and u placed A for andy in a very strategic spot.. Right in the center so all the women can squeeeeeze him... LOL

u the best Aruna..!

Anand said...

Wokieeee...Arunaaa............... Ooooohhhhhhhhhh mannnn....I never thot of it THAT way..hahahaha

No no no...dont EXCITE me so muchhhh...ya
HOT HOT HOTTTTT...

Anand said...

Aruna babyyyyy..........u make a guy sit in between all these pretty, pretty, sexy girls.....and there's ONLY ONE thing a guy can think of..

I'm jus following wot's natural. Hee.

Sakshi said...

Well my smart project leader have you ever thought about the best and only option to save the sinking company?? I have a doubt that was what the Project Manager had in mind when she assigned you this heavy duty task.....still guessing???

You need to recruit a new smart employee who has some in born skills in this field. I tell you no institution in this world can produce such a species...it's an acquired trait and the skill is achieved once you hire the person for permanently in your company. DAI ANDY BOY GET A WIFE!!!!

Anand said...

Sakshi..........U cruel cruel person... U wud think of a wife as an employee????? Tch tch..

Shive shiva shiva....wot's happening to this world man.

hee

Sakshi said...

Yeah Aruna what a relief no?? He gals come over here and let's plot while the guy is in snoozy land.

Sakshi said...

Ok let me give you the rates for these Veggies in this part of the world maybe then you would feel better Andy

Neembu - Don't even dare go searching for the round yellow guys. Here they grow in bottles all ready to be squeezed

Brinjal - Extinct since American's got to learn the awesome secret of how South Indian's are so healthy and free all the time. I mean Brinjal is the secret to tasty sambar no??? sheesh if no then am not an authentic South Indian.(btw I put everything I can find rotting in my fridge to make sambar)

Doodhi - You can find them in Indian Stores thankfully for the same prize as in Mumbai...but yeah they add dollars after the number...sobs!!

Cham said...

Seeing ur shooping done merely probably some extra bucks spending...Why re u under estimating, I feel u ve many skills, man!
Usually I shop what is fresh or seasonnal will be more cheaper, I feel the veggie prices re fairly cheaper in CA comparing to East coast! Next time bargain!

Anand said...

Aruna.........Lol. Im almost afraid of sleeping. The moment I move..U guys plot.

Nehal said...

Andy

Great to be squeezed among lovely ladies wink wink

I have yet to get used to the veg shopping business I have high regards for my project leader My M-I-L. Seeing her bargain for ever last paise is worth the trip down the market.


Sakshi Ak Sexy

I completely agree he needs a wife. Or in his terms hiring a trained and qualified person and delegation of authority to this next best candidate.


I guess the project leader has started her new project i.e domestication of ANAND

IF that’s Possible ????

Anand said...

Sakshi...............This is EXACTLY wot I jus told Aruna babe. Damn. Glad Wookie, Impieee and Anshu weren't around.

Aruna....U SEE?????

Btw........All hail SAAWI..eh?? WInk.

Imp's Mom said...

saakshi babe, a wife ...an employee...what horror!!! and pls there are better reason to get married than vege shopping...lol..

andy we really do not need u to fall asleep to start plotting! so get ur beauty sleep, cause u'll need ur grey cells to counter all of us :P

Anand said...

Sexy..............I heard you and all I can say now is...where you are....it SUCKS.

Im so damn glad Im here.....so close and down to earth that I can atleast smell raw spices and vegetables etc....

Anand said...

Cham.............Can't comment on my so called skills. Not aware yet. But thanx...I surely hope so.

And yea..next time.....I bloody BARGAIN.

Anand said...

Nehal...............Its almost a HIGH being squeezed like that. Aahhhhhh. haha

My domestication??? Hell NOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooo.
No waysss dude. Uh.....NO !! WAYS !!! Damn.

Anand said...

Yo ImPIEeeee..........U thr? Haha. See I told Sexy the same thing. Not fr vegge shpping purpose atleast.

And wot grey cells?? Im now coloring them RED. Anger needs to be shown sometimes. I shall retaliate !!

Imp's Mom said...

retaliate to what? anger needs to have a purpose... else its just... blowing a lot of air

:P

Nehal said...

:P

Anand said...

Impieeee....Yea IM gaseous in state. I blow from everywhere. Heee.

And Retaliation in my own defence to your girl gang. U girls fight. I fight back. No prisoners.

Anand said...

Nehal .............They ARE there. Red is jus for decoration. Lol.

Anand said...

Nehal................People come to me from far and wide..from all around the world..jus to smell the gases...fresh.
Take the opportunity ya. Dont lose it. Hee.

Anshu said...

Anand said...

Anand said...

Anshu...............Scared??????? Gotcha......

Anand said...

Anshu said...

Tanvi said...

Shame on u andy...My dad is a better shopper than u...ofcourse I agree with someone who said practice makes perfect..Its a pity u quit so soon.

Sakshi said...

Now I guess will have to shift base to India to participate in this Atalk. Sigh!! While I am asleep you guys have all the fun. See andy didn't I make you feel better after giving the rates here?? See am good to u at times...But did I tell you about the good things here...hee...hee?

Anshu if we take a survey of the age of all the gals in Atalk I guess only old Andy boy will be able to pitter patter here if he keeps it for above 21. But who cares this is our blog ain't it?? we took it over so Andy can't make rules here.

Nehal ya he needs a wife to censor the blog too...lol and can ya imagine how we will fight with Andy plus a smart gal on his side?? Red cells plus grey cells deadly combo I say. Nehal while coming get a mask for all the gal gang ok?? sheesh gaseous Andy that's the only weapon he has...bahhhh

Sakshi said...

Andy when will ya get that toothpaste like impee said??

Aruna SAAWI is cool gal....so when we take over this blog completely this can be our password and if Andy types in with his A he won't be able to get in coz it's ur A that breaks the code....lolz

Sakshi said...

Andy boy you get a sweet pat on ur blog for telling the world that am 16.

Hey can I order some karela, doodhi, nimbu and other stuff from the market pic u have put up?? You can shop for me this time...

Nehal said...

Nehal said...

Anand said...

Vanadana..................hahaha...thank u, thank u.... I bow in honour !!! :-)

Anand said...

Nehal................It's only a lull before everybody wakes up. No escaping u guys. Hee

ARUNA said...

whaz happening whaz happening.....did i miss anything???????????

Anand said...

Tanvi...............I respectfully disagree. I tried and that's one hell of a positive thing. It's better than quiting, inni??
And wotever gives u the idea I quit?? See me bounce back. I got spring in my ass.

And.....I'm really hoping when I reach ur dad's age - I'll be a better shopper. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Anand said...

Sexy babyyyy............. YO.:-). Good things over there??? Haven't u heard.....'Mera bharat Mahan??' Can U urself say the same thing about where u staying now ???...That too in hindi ??

And uh....the masks wont help. I'm way more powerful and effective in that department.

Anand said...

Aruna..................Check the comments....Heee..

Tanvi says shame on me....Smita say..men..they make a project of buying vegges and Nehal's sayin I mit get domesticated.. Boo hoo....

Tanvi said...

Not from u andy dear...but need acceptance in the gang...I rather be a part of their group rather than against them..so permission needed.

Also, Nehal: the agenda seems pretty simple...This is gonna be fun.

Anand said...

Anshu.....................So nw the gang gets a name too??? G3 (girl gang ke gunde)??? How bout G3 Summit?? Lol.

Anand said...

Nehal....................Me??? Bully you all????

Me thinks it's actully going the opposite way. No????

Anand said...

Impieeeee.... Definately NOT putting the favicon up.
But I wil have to say it's a sweet gesture from Nehal to make a fevicon for this blog and me.

Anand said...

Tanvi.............I never meant permission from me anyways. SIghhh...

HOwz the dancing goin thru?

Tanvi said...

Dancing is going gr8..my new blog is on the same..So u can say it inspires me..lol

Will wait for ur comment on the same.

@g3...girls...I am not very good at bullying anyone..So any tips???

Imp's Mom said...

yea sweet gesture it is, but u knw what would be really sweet???

u putting it up on hte blog in honor of the G3... seriously...

:P

who is going thru dancing?

Anand said...

Impieee sweethrt..................I knew of all the people YOU will be the one who might suggest the fevicon thing. But uh uh....no ways....not doin it.

You guys r already self 'honorable'. heehe

Anshu said...

Tanvi.... chill baby jus be wid us and u will learn all the rite things in life.

Anshu said...

Andy....girl gang ke gunde???? Sorry we have no plans of taking u in our gang...The day we do something like that ,may be we will take ur suggestion too and u will be the G3 ka gunda :-D

Imp's Mom said...

Andy...G3 ka gunda! Man Anshu that was awesome! my cheeks are still hurting frm laughing so much...

and babe, why don't u have a blog? would help to knw more abt u :-)

Anshu said...

Thanx a lot Imp's mom but i dont think i am as talented as u guys to have a Blog of my own.

Anand said...

Anshu....................Me???? coming in your gang????? To even think that way is.....well....
Shucks. lol.

Nahh I hv no intention of doin anythin such as that.

Anand said...

Impieeee.. good que for Anshu.

Yo Anshu..why no blog???? And how bout some INTRODUCTION so Impieee here and all of us know u a bit???

Dont inculde any thing that's personal in nature though. U dont want us to have ur address and then dropping at ur place one finemorneing suddenly for some samosaas. :-)

Imp's Mom said...

oh come on anshu, one does not need talent to have a blog... a blog is just a place where you can be yourself, put your thoughts down and the best part is that you end up making a whole lot of new friends, its better than any social networking site... definitely do not need talent for that!

but yea, in the meanwhile, wouldn't hurt to tell us a bit about urself nah?

Anshu said...

ok abo me..I am also a south indian(tamilian ),rite now in Noida. Married wid 2 kids. really wanna know my age???ofcourse 16.
I am a working mom and really enjoy reading all these blogs sitting in my office :-D.

Imp's Mom said...

hey that's cool! reading blogs in the office is the best way to work innit :P

don't think you missed out on anything...why do u think u did?

Anshu said...

naaaa..was in general checking if u wanted to know anything else..

Anshu said...

And yup reading blogs in working hours is fun but sometimes it becomes difficult too...specially when i read something funny....my boss can see me frm her cabin and so i cant laugh..read it wid a serious face and try all the tips Andy gave and when nothing works...rush to the loo to laugh and back wid a serious face:-(

Sakshi said...

Anshu if you need any tips on having a talentless dead blog...u know where to go na?? The only purpose of me having a blog was to have an excuse to go and bombard comments on other ppl's blog...u see it's like telling them I can comment and if you don't like my comments feel free to curse my blog and it works like a charm gal...see andy and all others bullying me on my blog to make a post as if I have hidden posts up my sleeve...oops I mean on my drafts!!
Ha Tamilian...romba sandosham..kadavalle nammal ayal vasigalanallo apo...(Don't let andy know that these words are bitching against him ok????

Anand said...

Anshu................HAhaa. Ur so scared of ur boss ya. BUt hey...Thanx for your intro.....very sporting of you.

U rush to the loo to laugh??? Hahaa.. Poor u dude. haha. I go to the loo for somethin' else..uh.... yeah !!

Anand said...

Impieeeee............... Good u got it out of Anshu. Good going. Hi five.

Imp's Mom said...

Oh Anshu, I knw how that is! Been there...

Hi Five Anand, just have to ask nicely :-)

and yea if you start with german and chinese you'll be chatting with urself dude!! what is the point... u might as well do it in the confines of ur home cause anyways neither of us will understand it :P

sakshi, damn good idea plotting in tamil...lol

btw how many languages do u knw???

Sakshi said...

well Imp's mom naturally I can speak in Malayalam, Tamil, Hindi and English (not the British or American but the Malayali version of it though). But with the help of google don't worry can crack any language Andy dares to try out...Chinese and German...ho andy woh tho hamare bye bye hai na?? I mean there is some saying like that no???? Hindi chini bye bye???

Anand said...

Sexy..............Not putting the icon on. Lemme stress on the word 'NOT'.

Anand said...

Impieeee....for me Tamil is the same way..... You guy wud be talkin to urselves. EVen if that's good plotting......it's general ethics to let a person hv prior warnings. No?

Besides....it wud ben fun...if I dn't know, Wud it?

Anand said...

Sexy..............U r smart. Given. U got the internet to crack the languages I knw... fine......BUT......

here..meet ur match..ME !! How???

LIke I dont have any Tamilian friends around, rite??? hmm??? WInk wink. ;->

Imp's Mom said...

Nehal Love you for designing that...

And BTW, we dont want our gang member Nehal's energy and design to go in waste.. it was designed for a purpose .. so we with u Nehal.. ;) we ll get it here..

workhard said...

Damn.. i missed a lot of action here.. Imp sweetie.. u gotta teach me some tamil.. and sexy.. mallu..


Oh.. i just scrolled up the comment box..LOL.. Andy wanted Nehal to design the favicon.. LOL.... he wanted it..so now he HAS to put it up...

Smita said...

lol, it was a good job done no doubt but there was no need for so much planning :D

Or may be there was for you :)

Anshu said...

Sexy dont worry, wont translate that to Andy but wanna know abo manga kadikkal :-D.

Anand said...

Yo Wooookieee .....welcome back dude. But I'm now concerned. Wot was he depression thingie u mentioned????
Being a blgger friends ......and being this Blog's Master...I command u to tell us jus a bit about it - not revealing anything persnoal though. Dunno about the others..but I wud love to help u out. Tell us.

And as for the icon........NO will do. It may be YOUR blog...but "I" have the damn password, U c???

Anand said...

Ohh and wookieee......Nehal wanted to design it so I said Ok. No twisting that fact. nah uh.

Anand said...

Hi Smita..............FINallyyy....someone says it was a good job done. Thanxk you..really.

I have jus been getting flak all this time. Everyone saw the negative. No one saw the positive. SHucks.

Anand said...

Anshu.............Even if you don't, I have buddies here who wud. Lol. TAMILIAN and MALLU buddies..BOTH.

Anand said...

AND HEY, ALL YOU GUYS......ATTENTION PLZ !!

PLZ NOTICE a "3 ARROW ICON POINTING UPWARDS" ON THE 'BOTTOM RIGHT HAND CORNER' OF THIS BLOG???

IT'S A SHORTCUT TO GO TO THE TOP OF THE PAGE. NO NEED TO SCORLL ANYMORE. YEAHHH.....

Nehal said...

Anand still waiting for the favicon

g3 high fives we need this icon on andy U asked for it now you use it

Anshu said...

Btw Sexy ....talentless???who??? u??? c'mon, u r really gud.
I think what i am dng is the best ...i can comment on all the blogs and u guys can't curse me back...and like Imp said i agree Blog is a grt place to write what u feel like and make new frnds..don't u guys think A-talk has given me all that??
and ya Nehal.......Fevicon,Fevicon, we need fevicon.
Andy.....samosa ???early in da morning???wots wrong wid u??I don't mind making crispy Dosa's wid coconut chutney and Sambar for my G3 thouogh.

Anshu said...

U r most welcome Nehal and i know Aruna and Sexy also like Dosa.

Anand said...

Nehal.........I appreciate the fevicon.
Look, I accepted it, rite? But to put it on.....???

Nahh man... This is a MAN's blog, see???


Now let's understand the logic here. Where does indicate ME in the fevicon?? It's a female sign.

Make a fevicon that depecits me in there as well. Or....make a g3 + me kinda fevicon. That's a fair demand. If u do that - I'll put it on. :-)

Anand said...

Anshu.....................Samosa, dosa.....one need not look at the time of the day to hog them up.

And maybe Aruna can comeup with a tasty receipe to go with ur dosas. WHo knows. Haha.

And no fevi and no con.

Nehal said...

girls considering this being andy's blog I cut him some slack have made a new favicon which has both male and female signs and have already mailed him. waiting for him to put this online

Nehal said...

considering him being my old friend hope G3 wouldn't mind. But the female symbol stays anand

Anshu said...

Not a bad idea Andy and we will send u for veggi shopping before starting to cook.

Nehal said...

anshu if u send andy for veggi shopping beware U don't want a disastrous recipe in your hand.

workhard said...

Nehal babes.. can u overpower the women symbol as make the man symbol really tiny.. i thing we d appreciate it..

Thanks Andy.. for asking. but i ll pull my self out of it...

And im glad at least u know the difference between vegetables and fruits...LOL

Anand said...

Woookieee.....I hope your "make men suffer for being born" club is doing well. I wish it well.....IN the well, that is.

And dude.....163 comments?? Im gonna faint. This is the HIGHEST no.of commentts for any post Ive got so far. yeahhhhh.

U think it's time for a new post?

workhard said...

Geeeee.... WHat did i doo? Me the worlds most innocent soul :)

Naaah.. i think u should wait to hit a score till 200, so that gives us an opportunity to exercise our skill--- to be precise ' make men suffer for being born' so by the time ur new post comes out.. everyone is well trained and ready to go..

workhard said...

Nehal baby.. someone has just tapped into my creativity.. is there a possibility that u can get a symbol with a man hanging.. from which ever part is convinient for u to hang..LOL

Anand said...

Ya Woookieeee.........I agree..Ur jus as innocent as me.

The post is anyways lost there somehwere. Like it's just a bahana to write somethign here. Heee

Sakshi said...

Hey Andy how about distributing the comments equally among us gals after you hit the 100th? Send over the rest of the comments to our blogs...

Anshu...sheesh you really wanna know about that Mango incident??? should I tell it in Tamil, malayalam or hinglish???

Andy Andy y in the world would you design that damn arrow upwards?? You should have put it downwards so that we can get to the comments in one click..dontcha think so?? U want us to read ur post again and again??

Sakshi said...

Gals it's time we really have a G3 summit....how about getting together at someone's place and Anshu making us Dosa, Aruna Jalebi, Imp's Mom Mysore vada, nehal designing the Favicon (btw is it fAvicon or fEvicon...got lost down the comments whether it's E or A) Wookie painting all of us together at the summit so that we can send it to Andy and me...ahem...ahem...can I just be my usual self and eat and chatter and play with Imp and my son??? No??? ok ok

Sakshi said...

Smita said...

Anand said...

Avdi.................U seem to have tasted Shampoo.........Hahaha.....

Anand said...

SMita................Hey yo. Im almost afraid to acknowledge this. One more addition and I get jitters.

ankita mehta said...

Management is all about getting things done through others as they say! management does not come from sitting in lecture theaters or reading Philip kotler! it comes from day to day activities! dibbawallas of mumbai possess the best management skills!
Verdict: IIMS plz include this wonderful post in ur curriculum! Not to forget-"Mothers are born managers"!

Anand said...

Ankita....that's an awesome compliment - "IIMS plz include this wonderful post in ur curriculum!"
