Bandh(ar) guys!! :)

Imagine getting up in the morning, knowing that you will not have decent food for that day. Imagine a day where in you stay home through out the day and do nothing. Imagine that this is not imaginary, but real.

Disclaimer: This is not the lateshht ad for Samsung. For people getting confused with Imagine. :)

Being single is not the worst that can happen to an eligible (ok, that was uncalled for :) ) bachelor like me. No, seriously trust me guys. For all Non-karnataka guys, this might be hard to digest. But yes, that’s the UNDILUTED truth. It’s the hardships caused by these bandh(ar??) guys. A whole day huddled inside the house, no tamil channels, with only maggi noodles and coffee for food. Now how cool is that? But I guess, for the married couples, esp for the guy, this might be bliss, as the wife wouldn’t be able to watch tamil serials, and torture the guy further. :)

Get up in the morning. Sleepiness. Complain. Take bath. Not very hot water. Curse. Dress up. Shoe not polished well. Use profanities. Take the bus. Horrible traffic. Tear hair. Reach office. Comfortable cubicle. Sleep. :)

For a guy like me who has a comfortable routine like the one mentioned above, Monday was a total letdown. These are the times where I get jealous of the guys who are married. Hey, don’t get carried away. It’s just for food sake. :) Bread butter and jam for breakfast. Since we didn’t cook it, it tasted yummy. I made coffee for the whole house. Thanks Ashok, for complementing me on the taste of coffee. For a guy who gets chastised at home, that I can’t even boil water, this was a huge step forward. Neways, lunch time came and we had noodles. Guess with the variety of noodles made, we could have started a restaurant. From watery to sticky types. U name it and we have it. :)

News on TV didn’t provide much coverage except for showing images where men carried buckets and stuff in the roads. I liked one slogan though. “Aiyyayyo anniyaayaa, ayyoyyo anniyaayaa…..” It went on like that. Nice one. Should try that the next time I get my payslip. :) Since tamil channels were cut, we resorted to seeing MTV, V and other informative chanels. ;-)

Evening came. We, reassured by people that restaurants would open after 1800 hrs, didn’t stock up much. But then, every damn shop was closed. Ashok observed that a shop was crowded. We walked upto it only to find that it was a wine shop. God, people are on strike asking for water, and here are people, clamoring for a quarter. Maybe they should change the name of Bangalore to Bar-galore. At last, we found that a mess was open. “only Anna Sambhar (no, its not a sibling of Anna Kournikova”)…. Was the announcement given to us. Though Boju kept muttering, we did have nice food.

That’s it. We then reached home and slept nicely, in the hope that company would be there the next day, so that we can have nice food. Btw, when will lunch time come?? :)

PS: For ppl who have come up till here, u have wallpapers of the heroine of casino royale? Eva Green? If so, please mail them to me. Statutory warning: Searching for Hollywood heroines wallpapers during Office time using Google image search will be harmful. To your job, that is!! :-D
