Blog Talk!!

Yaake in Bangalore Mirror!My blog was featured in Bangalore Mirror, an English daily, yesterday!!

There’s a column called “Blog Talk,” where geeky posts that deal with “All Things Bangalore” are published! And mine got picked up and printed!! All thanks to Balu, who’s a journalist with Bangalore Mirror. I was surprised and shocked when he told me he wants to use my blog for that column. In a daze, I said Yes, and the next day, there it was – in black-and-white and a few other colors – my blog, specifically my post about being cursed again and again!

Thanks so much, Balu! I owe you one, macha! πŸ˜€

I scanned it and sent it to all my friends! Apart from people calling me up out of the blue to tell me that it’s been published, my biggest shock was when Dad read the article, looked at me and said, “Tell me the truth – was that incident with the mother and her kid an accident or did you do smack your lips intentionally?”

“Dad!” I protested, “you must be kidding me, right?”

He looked at me strangely and said, “No, I’m not.”

Now, I don’t really know what to say in situations like this. The whole thing was one big misunderstanding and when people don’t trust me, I really don’t know what to say or do. I can’t deny anything too vehemently, because it may appear fake, and for obvious reasons I can’t accept any charges.

On the other hand, it seems my life is a constant punching bag of abuses. Some guy called me a “Loafer!” today because I drove my bike over his laptop bag and heard a distinctive crunch as I did it and roared away from the scene… πŸ˜€
