Wow! Sam, you surpass yourself. You have learnt to market your stories(not that the marketing was ever required on t-BHP) now by building hype even before the release(la-bollywood style).....Now can we at least have the trailers? I assume you are in no mood to release the movie anytime soon.

So?.A moderator can have more than one smiley in his/her post and not get an infraction?.. Are you a friend of 'Samural' and 'aah78'?. If so, please convey my warmest regards.

Nick,

The rule is 2 smilies. I suggest you do a refresher course on the rules. Here everyone is a friend and I guess you can convey your regards yourself.

EDIT - I will make it simpler for you - click here http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/announcements/announcement-team-bhp-rules-please-read-before-posting.html and read rule No. 8

Guys, lets not deviate.

Sam, where art thou? Completely vanished after the teaser. Is this like the calm before the storm?

The anticipation for the story beats everything.
Right from the anticipation of Safari 2.2 Launch to the R15 launch.
Best thing is we know who takes the call here, so we can plead him to speed it up.

Good Lord!

I return back to my computer. Over a thousand views, 3 pages of posts and even 5 stars in advance for a story I haven't written yet!
I am grinning from ear to ear.

What a welcome.

This story is a little travelogue. She came to spend normal time in Mumbai with me and that's what she did. Also I am refurbishing my home, so she was co-ordinating with the interior designer, while I went to work everyday.
While there were many wonderful anecdotes, there isn't much to say about the time in Mumbai. We didn't do much and yet so much

We took a long weekend in Goa and I thought I'd share the story with you. I will do my best.

Meanwhile, for those interested in the Indianization of TheOne®, her linguistic capabilities always amaze me. She does speak fluent German (of course), English and Spanish - she has already started picking up bits of Hindi.
What is amazing is that her tone and diction is not firangi, in fact it is very clear and easy to understand.

Her affinity for Bollywood and hindi songs is growing, she is able to sing parts of many songs. She is also able to say "Kam tel, kam mirchi" to the cook quite comfortably.

She amazes and surprises me with little things on a daily basis.
Meanwhile my German is improving a little everyday.

Back to my little story now...

I really laughed my head off reading your comment !!! I believe what you said assuming you are in the close circle of friends of the Yeti®. I also wish I could get a secret access to the Yeti®'s laptop, thereby becoming famous by stealing his photos and stories !!! Just one photo of a "happy feet", 1240 views, 43 replies and its all in 24 hours !!! Wish I could beat that figures one day !!
