Protesting with lollipops

I’m too sleepy to make the connection between the android version, Modi, Anandi Patel, and Garba. But I guess someone can come up with something.

Aunt Sues Nephew for $127,000 Over Forced Hug — NYMag

A Connecticut jury is being asked to render a verdict in the case of an allegedly recklessly joyful 8-year-old over his deployment of “unreasonably forceful” affection toward his aunt (who, of course, lives in Manhattan).

I don’t have any words.

MP govt forms panel of astrologers to pacify ‘Gods’ and ‘Grahas’ | bhopal | Hindustan Times

I have half a mind to give up on this blog, because the purpose is entirely lost. Everything you read is just ridiculous.

“The Guru Chandal Yogam (mystic power) is considered to be inauspicious one, and is coinciding with Simhastha fair. It is believed that major tragedy might occur during this phase. Hence the state has constituted a committee of nine astrologers to find a way out for peaceful commencement of the Simhastha fair,” said Diwakar Vasudev Natu, the president of Simhastha mela authority.

Kids, toddlers, and lessons

Don’t intend to be preachy, but this cracked me up.

As a parent, we want to raise our children to know they are special, they are brave, they are strong, they are powerful, they can achieve anything and that they are loved no matter what. This stuff is important. But in terms of practical, real-life situations, we should be doing better. We owe our children this. So, take a pause from “Kenzylee Shastasprite, you’re the most sparkly snowflake and can be president one day” and teach your kids what really matters. They’ll thank you for it one day.

The other one that gives me a lot of happiness is Grant Snider’s beautiful piece on life with a toddler. Just click, you won’t regret it. I’ve been subjected to this many times by my nieces. Snippet:


Edit: I have no knowledge of parenthood.

Software development, in summary.

Let one bug go out, let ten in. How many times has this happened?

PS: This particular Calvin is very hard to find because it doesn’t have any words, and so it’s hard to find on any of the search engines.


Food rule

It reminds me of the old adage someone taught me, “Of the two/three/four legged things, I don’t eat tables and chairs. Of the flying things, I don’t eat aeroplanes.” Shrimps, oysters, and squids are confusing, indeed.


Google bought that domain because Alphabet, a bit much I’d say, but okay. Thankfully they don’t have to worry about phonetic languages like Hindi, because they’ll have to buy the “a ki maatra”, “aa ki matra”, etc.

Gaye hamari maata hai

Sometimes things border on surreal.
‘Cow’ should be national animal of India. Just catch one now and put it in the zoo just in case they get endangered, and future generations are never able to see one. But then again, if they’re there in abundance, they  should get that status.

For info, ‘Crane’ is the national bird of this urban jungle called Singapore. All over, everywhere, in abundance.

This is one of the most brilliant exchanges I’ve read, and the inclusion of Singlish makes it funnier, to me.
