r we not INDIANS ??

Yest I was sitting at one of my distributer's place n both of us were talking serious business. There was one old man probably a guest since I was seeing him for the 1st time. He asked me where is my native place. It was very strange as he didnt ask my name n what I do.
After being quite for sometime his next bouncer was what is my caste. I got confused n said what . He made his ques clear again as if it was the most important thing which defines anybody's identity even more imp than his name. I finally replied Indian. He reacted like he is hearing this word for the 1st time. I repeated I am an Indian.
Certainly it hurt his ego n he gave a ful lecture on our roots n origin. It was very similar to a scene of Swadesh movie.
After he finished off I said him "isliye maine aapse ye kaha ki main ek bhartiya hoon"
At last he would have understood that the time has changed n the new generation understands the meaning of the word INDIAN.
But still a major part of our population are still stuck in the age old thinkings. They dont feel proud in saying themselves an INDIAN.
I dont want to go into detail of this controversial topic but it feels bad when people ask such nonsense ques.
Jai ho...

This a distress call to all TWM folks. This has been the longest duration of inactivity for TWM. So is it that we are all too busy or have all of us hit the writer's block. Let's break the spell of inactivity....HOW?? WHAT SHOULD I WRITE ABOUT?? I have an incomplete draft, shall I post that? May be I will do a recap of the past few days..No mood to write paragraphs.. Connect the dots yourself.. * Kaminey - Movie was good, the ending could have been better..The bong mafia coming with a long gun to the fight scene was really comic..Fahid Kapoor ki acting mast thi..waifey aap log ye movie dekhey kya?? * Books - Finally I read the book Love Story by Erich Segal..Hmmm the story is good but the effect of the classic book has not yet got into me..Meanwhile I am also reading 'The Great Indian Novel' by Shashi Tharoor..I will surely recommend this book..Tharoor has splendidly blended the tales from Mahabharata into the modern Indian history.. *Movies - I watched 'Littl

"Trip Kela" season is back!!

"We had joy,we had fun,we had trip kelas every season but the things we used to plan were seasons out of time" Wow!! Seems like the "Kela" season is in the air again!! Why is it that whenever WE plan something ,something has to go wrong!! On our maiden trip to Goa, I had to back out coz my dad was just outta hospital.So I had to be at home.Before our second trip,we had so much discussion regarding a "reunion" trip to Darjeeling during Convo.What happened was evrybody backing out the last month.Raj said that he has already booked tickets for home.Rathz,supposedly, didn't get any tickets for returning to Kolkatta from Cuttack & there I was in Kol doing nothing.Though finally we did go to Digha & the trip was gud BUT our unbeaten record of "Flop Plans" continued. Now, we are probably gonna add an another feather in the cap.The highly anticipated Goa trip which had created so much ripples across the cyberspace(blog,gmail & orkut)
