  • Tsunami – things to learn from Japan

    1. THE CALM
    Not a single visual of chest-beating or wild grief. Sorrow itself has been elevated.
    2. THE DIGNITY
    Disciplined queues for water and groceries. Not a rough word or a crude gesture.3. THE ABILITY
    The incredible architects, for instance. Buildings swayed but didn’t fall.

    4. THE GRACE
    People bought only what they needed for the present, so everybody could get something.

    5. THE ORDER
    No looting in shops. No honking and no overtaking on the roads. Just understanding.

    6. THE SACRIFICE
    Fifty workers stayed back to pump sea water in the N-reactors. How will they ever be repaid?

    7. THE TENDERNESS
    Restaurants cut prices. An unguarded ATM is left alone. The strong cared for the weak.

    8. THE TRAINING
    The old and the children, everyone knew exactly what to do. And they did just that.

    9. THE MEDIA
    They showed magnificent restraint in the bulletins. No silly reporters.Only calm reportage.

  • Desi Accent

     

    An Indian lady (NRI) returned from the US to India and is window-shopping in Delhi . Suddenly she realizes she is late for an appointment. She is not wearing a watch so she sees a small shop on the roadside and asks in a very American accent to the Sardar owner, ‘Wot’s the tyme?’. 

    The Sardar is a very patriotic man and hates Desis / Indians who put on a foreign accent. He replies in the same American accent, ‘Bra-panties.’

    Confused the lady asks again, ‘No! No! Wot’s DA tyme?’

    The Sardar again answers back, in the same accent, ‘Bra-panties.’

    Seeing the confusion between the two, another sardar comes to the rescue of the lady and says,

    ‘O papaji, tusi samajh nahin paaye? Kudi twade ko puuch rahii hai, kinna time hua!!’ The angry Sardar shouts back at him,

    ‘Abe paji, tow main bhi to oonoo time hee Bata rahan hu- barah payntis (12.35).
