No. 1 Vs No. 36


Seriously, Its not a laughing matter at No.36 ! :-( .


Yet another I dont know Hindi conversation with my not so familiar office colleague who is from North East India !

He : So, do you speak Hindi ?
I : No, I speak Tamil .
He : Are you from Srilanka anyways ?
I : Grr.......

May be i should have asked him - looking at his features,whether he hails from China ?
How can anyone be so ignorant ??

Read this interesting writeup linked from thinnai.com !

Oh !

It has become a routine practice for me to countcheck the number of cards (read plastic cards)that i get to carry everyday.Over the past few years i have collected more than 40+ cards..Right from the office ID ,professional membership ID/library, school ID/drivers licence, credit/debit cards, medical insurance cards, metro/car insurance card, apartment access card, garage swipe cards to the supermarket/shopper's card /laundry /phone card to club membership/restaurant cards ,the size and weight of my wallet is ever increasing!!!. There is always an option to carry only the necessary cards,but you never knew when you would need the other ones. An undisputable fact is that you are identified by the card that you carry-Card values than the face value ! And if anyone of them is lost, its a pain calling the agencies to issue a new one ! Am i right ?

I have couple of questions now ....

1.How comfortable are you carrying lot many cards with you everyday ?
2.Can the utilities of all these cards be clubbed to one single card? Hope we expect this to happen in few years from now !

Any solutions/suggestions are always invited !

...Now that am travelling by train , a solid 2 hour oneway commute to my work site ,i encounter interesting people and incidents. Yesterday morning , a desi guy approached me and asked if am from India. I usually keep myself engaged by reading books, yet i responded to him. He offered me an "lucrative way to make more money" and started to explain about a MLM project. He showed me a magazine that contained pictures of "Quixtar Indian Millionaires". I realized he is from Amway/Quixtar and stopped him right there saying am not interested. Seems like i can't even travel in peace! Huh...! I dont know if its an acceptable etiquette to harass unknown people and canvass some crap they want to sell !
I have had enough with this back home when Amway friends and relatives bugging to enroll and it just strains the relationships. May be am not sure if this works or even legal !

A few days ago, a friend of mine here attended a MLM convention .He said he hardly saw any white guys there at the convention, the majority of the audiences being Desis. The 3 day convention had variety of foods including puliodarai, thayir sadham and desi varieties.

I googled to find more about Quixtar Indians and bumped HERE , and HERE ! Nasty posts,Indeed !!
