17 January, 2011
By now, I hope you all know I have inherited dad’s old car while he bought a new one for himself. While the car has been awesome help in the cold and the traffic, I’ve not been able to get around to doing any significant long drives except randomly driving off in some direction where there is a road with less-than-average traffic. I will plan some decent trips after February when all the weddings I have to attend stop.
It turns out, I’m being a bit of a hypocrite here. The other day I took the Activa on a small errand to a nearby shop….yes! You read it right….I still ride the Activa now and then! As much as I may not like her, I cannot part with her. I came back feeling very annoyed that the pick-up was not as good as my car, and that the brakes were not as sensitive as my car. I came home and told mom,” I don’t know how I rode that infernal machine all this time.” Looks like it’s just human for us to get accustomed to the finer things in life very easily but find it very very annoying to have to go back to old ways. But that still does not give dad the right to mock MY car in front of his new car.
How many of you are like this? Bought a new touch screen phone, and then think all our button-based phones are inferior? Or bought a PS3 and look down upon PS2 owners? Or now drive and Activa and look down upon Scooty owners? Well, Scooty owners ought to be looked down upon…..Come on, Spill the beans…

Me: I’m out last week of Jan in Delhi for the wedding
Friend: Oh, that’s cool! I heard Delhi is terribly cold!
Me: I know. At least there would be much scotch to expect….and brandy thanks to the cold!!!
Friend: Do you think of anything else?
Me: yes! Music…but that would all be Punjabi…so not too gung ho about that
There won’t be any non-veg at the wedding
All the girls would be married/taken/not interested
That leaves the low hanging instant gratification fruit of alcohol
Logic proper right?
Friend: yes….logic is really good
