Smart Bai

No one has seen her. Still she gets all the work done. She is our domestic maid who helps us here at Pune. She has the key to our flat and comes to work while we are in our offices. When we want to get a job done, we write it on a piece of paper and leave it on the table. Smart Bai comes, reads it and gets the job done. When she wants us to buy a packet of detergent or wants to take a leave, she leaves a note for us. Whenever it is salary time, we keep the money on the table. She takes it and leaves behind an acknowledgement. In India, where literacy rates hover around the 65 % mark, and which I believe are government exaggerated figures, finding a literate maid is a difficult task. But not so in Pune. Most of the maids whom I have heard about in Pune can read and write. India Shinning.

Carnal Desire

After the exciting statue, let me now talk about carnal desire. I am a man of many fetishes. One of them is to have sex on the beach. Even after 2* years of existence, I have not had the chance to have sex on the beach. But last night I had a carnal desire. Enough you dirty minds. Sex On The Beach happens to be the name of a cocktail and Carnal Desire happens to be an ice cream they serve at Drizzle. Drizzle is a family restaurant at Aundh(Pune) close to my place. I did not want to go for an ice cream after dinner as such, but I gave in to Carnal Desire. I am not sure whether the restaurant owner knows what it means or is it just a stunt so that people try it out. Whatever. After ordering, I eagerly waited for it. In a few minutes, the waiter arrived with a scoop of butterscotch. I like butterscotch, but my desire of finding something exotic have been left unfulfilled.

From A Different Angle

Sir Pherozeshah Mehta is known as the Father of Municipal Government in Bombay. What Bombay is today, we Bombayites owe a lot to this guy. A master in city planning, this former municipal commissioner of Bombay, stands tall in the bronze statue opposite the BMC Headquarters at VT station. But the people who built this statue were not that smart. They probably did not know how it would look from all angles. If you can spot the humour in the photograph, then fine. I am not going to explicitly point it out to you!
