Won't a drive to digha a bit risky for you guys under the current scenario? What with all those Nandigram bawaal going on without an end?

i did get your point...the inner meaning. no comments about that.
a meet generally involves some action, like spinning a padmini, cowdung spraying, getting lost, waiting for the slower car, talking about cars...yeah i know that. so if are talking about these actions, yes we guys are being lazy (atleast me). but, we do have the "mini meets" whenever we get time.

had a great time at Razor's place. as usually we talked about cars and nothing else...and that is only reason why ETC was kinda getting bored. but she enjoyed the drive back home .

@ razor4077 - thanks buddy for my fuel . get well soon. before the next surgery get the lancer done by "Snakes"...(read VIPER).

@ guys - we should plan up for a "proper meet" sometime soon. till the next time "lagey raho Petrol Heads" and burn rubber carefully.

No no I am not Bong-bashing. Its just that things are too quite, subdued. Maybe the heat! (Apart from you being OOA). Actually my US assignment has happened at a wrong time, just when things were kind of hotting up. Anyway give yourselves a few days and then you are going to see a upgraded hot planet.

Kolkata is a fabulous place. People wake up late in the morning, they eat breakfast then pretend to be awake, then they eat lunch and then go for a after lunch siesta they wake up have tea then ponder about whats going on in life of what could go on in life (mainly dreaming) then they have dinner and its goodnight.
Buddy, your comments had forced me to cite this story (courtesey: Potpourri)


A Dane, a Finn, a Norwegian and a Swede, all Chairmen of multinational Scandinavian companies, were having a morning stroll on Pier 7 in San Francisco. They were enjoying a break from the International Business Strategy Seminar being held in a nearby 5-star hotel. As they walked along, they noticed a pier fisherman who was relaxing on a bench. Two large fish were near his feet. They mentioned to him where they were from and asked about the fish. He smiled broadly and spoke to each of them in their native tongue. They were amazed to meet a seemingly poor fisherman speaking such perfect foreign languages. They asked him what he was doing on the pier. He said he was waiting for customers who were coming to the pier in a couple of hours to buy his fish. He expected to make a $20 profit. The Swede, a little surprised at this intelligent man wasting his time sitting on the pier, asked him why he did not go out and catch some more fish before the customers arrived. The fisherman queried him as to what he would do with more fish. The Finn said that he would get more money if he sold more fish. The fisherman appeared confused and asked what he would do with more money. The Dane explained that he could buy a small boat, go out to sea and catch more fish. The confusion of the fisherman appeared to grow. He asked what he would do with even more fish. The Norwegian quipped that he would get even more money and possibly be able to buy a good Norwegian trawler to catch more fish. The fisherman was astounded -- he asked them what he would do with even more fish. The Swede was now impatient. He told the fisherman that he could fish in international waters and catch more fish and make more money. In fact, he could become a rich man. The fisherman was taken aback. He asked them what he would do with all the money he got. The Finn was quick to tell him that he could form a multinational company, get others to do his work, and then relax on the pier, enjoying the fresh air and sunshine. The fisherman looked at them incredulously. He asked them a simple question -- "What am I doing here just now?"
