I am back

Woohoo! Finally the back-breaking drudgery of incessant work is over. For all of my readers, who were anxious about my long absence, the wait is finally over. Yes, I meant both of you.

A lot seems to have happened in the weeks gone by: Blasts in Varanasi, a record smashing cricket match, a test victory for India, and the moving on of a good friend. He finally decided that reading my inane blogposts was a waste of his precious student time. So to make it worthwhile, he took a job in Delhi so that he can waste company time doing the same thing, rather than his own. As a reward I got his throne [his lab desk actually] and his 21" monitor to watch Mithunda's movies on. But although I may occupy his chair, it will be more like Denethor guarding the throne for Aragorn, except that there isn't an Arwen in his sight right now.

Enough said about moving on. Some things, thankfully, haven't changed. Like the general studdappa (called "Ptushun" in Delhi lingo) of Bombay, my iron-grip on my single status, and Ganguly's ouster from the Indian team.

Thank god for small mercies.

There's hope for you. You can hang on to he the throne. Until you encounter a firey death, that is ... hmm, scratch that. Bad idea. But then again, Denethor had (at least) two sons ... which means he was (probably) married.

Nice to see you back.
Who are Denethor, Aragorn, Arwen ?
Sorry, I dont know much about Brazilian history.

@sameer: On second thoughts, I would rather be Faramir. He gets groovy with Eowyn at the end (atleast in the book) :-)

@shan: This is Lord of the Rings. Aragorn was the (exiled) king of men and the rightful occupant of the throne. In the absence of a king, Denethor, a steward of the city, was guarding the throne. Sort of like Manmohan Singh is doing for Sonia.

@shan: ... and Arwen was Aragorn's gorgeous elf girlfriend (played by the uber-hot Liv Tyler in the movie trilogy)

Oh...
angrezi pikchar.

Hiya.. nice to see you back..
Arwen huh? well maybe you could see if there is Eowyn around.. ;-)
I liked her spunkiness..
Whats new on Mithunda?

Asterix said...

@tara: I totally agree! Eowyn's character is pretty hot! A true valkyrie indeed! Arwen looks ultra mushy and soft.

Guard the throne well mate. And who knows about the rest :)

@solzaire: Finally the lord has spoken from his exile!
