A few days back an incident took place which really got to me…

I hate…HATE…people who are hypocrites. Wikipedia (my second most visited place in the virtual world after…facebook…egads!) states “Hypocrisy is the act of persistently professing beliefs, opinions, virtues, feelings, qualities, or standards that are inconsistent with one’s actions. Hypocrisy is thus a kind of lie.”

And so in my view a hypocrite is someone who…gets ALL riled up by someone’s questionable behaviour…and then somehow ends up doing the EXACTLY SAME THING!! All the time professing to the world how their upbringing taught them to be a better person…or how their parents instilled better values in them.


I have only one thing to say to hypocrites.

You will crash. Crash and burn. To a crisp. No. Better yet…you’ll burn down into a putrid mass of a mess …that everyone usually refers to as a..



In Case I Have Followers (Aren’t I The Optimistic?!)

Just wanted to inform you all that I am and will be a bit MIA for a while..because

1. I have joined a school, where I’m teaching English Language and Literature to Grade 5 students…that comprises of two sections..each filled with around 20 over-smart 11 year olds…

2. I am inundated..every other day…with nearly 80 copies of classwork and homework copies..submitted in illegible handwriting that would make a doctor proud (N.B. I am guessing you got the joke since you MUST have come across a doctor’s prescription at least ONCE in your lifetime).

3. Their final examination is coming up… so I am rather bogged down with revisions and all the things that you have to do before such things…bleh!

and.. oh yes…as if I weren’t busy enough…I am also working on some ‘heavy’ (topic-of-research wise) Bengali-to-English translation work for an NGO…where everything ‘was due yesterday’.

So yes.. MIA is and will be the ‘in’ thing for me for the coming few weeks ..

Cheers! (and I DO mean it).
