Funny Story: The Moment of Happiness

200Posts He glanced at the ink pen sitting on the writing table, with immense pride he picked it up. Vyomkesh was happy today, he quickly glanced at the table calendar, the red mark on the date 1st Jan 2010 made him smirk. Finally the day was here.
Finally the nine years of torment were over, his dear daughter turned 18 and the last of the palimony cheque.

He remembered the speech he had prepared for this occasion, ‘Today, at the stroke of midnight, I become free. No more paying half of my life saving for my wife who dumped me and ran away.’
He was in a cheerful mood today, he went to make coffee all by himself. Funny thing, he realized how the whole fight started over morning coffee. He went to cook a fresh batch of pan cakes for his morning breakfast.
inkpen No more torments, no more cheque, no more court dates. He can meet his daughter anytime he wants, he can provide her things. Finally can rectify the mistake of hiring the bad lawyer and loosing his daughter to the cruel mom.
She came down in her pajamas and kissed on his cheek, ‘Good morning daddy.’
‘Hey good morning sweetheart,’ he smiled as widely as he could in a decade, ‘Happy birthday, honey.’
‘Thank you, so much, daddy,’ she smiled as she ate the first batch of pan cakes.
He puffed his chest as widely as he could and spoke the next words,
‘So, hon, you are eighteen now, today while you go with your mom for lunch, do give her this last cheque,’ he stressed the last words very carefully, ‘Do tell her that now she has no way to torture me for the rest of my life. Also tell her, its finally over, and also mention that she disgust me and that I hate her, will you? Sweetheart?’
surprise ‘Sure daddy,’ she said sweetly.
So he spend the awesome day, even more awesome. He enjoyed his lunch in happiness.
Finally his daughter returned for dinner, which he had ordered from the five star restaurant in the city.
‘So’, he asked cheerfully on dinner, ‘Gave my message to your mother?’
‘Yup,’ she said sweetly.
‘So… what did she say?’ he asked, not knowing when to stop.
‘She gave you a message, daddy,’ said his daughter, ‘She told me to tell you, that I am not your daughter.’

Howdy folks, this was my 200th post, which earlier I wanted to give a boring lecturing on the journey of blogging, and how I reached and blah blah blah, but then I thought what the hell… who wants boring speech anyways, I want to entertain you and here goes. I promise to do so more and more and even more than the more. So have a blast coming, just 3 days to go.
If you didn’t observe it yet, I have a new domain for the blog, and a brand new email id for all communication.

"Whatcha doing?" I asked her as she stood in a questionable position in the jogger's park, early morning. How early? Even the slum dwellers had not come out on the streets for their morning potty. 'I am practising a new form of defence,' she replied peacefully. 'Defense, that is interesting. Some trouble?' I quizzed. 'I met my old friends today over lunch then we went shopping, and in the evening we took coffee at CCD,' she started. 'So we were discussing relationships, she was telling how she has screwed her life and how practical she has become after her first breakup I haven't told anyone about my boyfriend, but it made me think of how foolish and stupid I am...' About time, don't you think? '..and how I am not doing anything about it, also they told me that I have lost a lot of weight, which is sad because people keep asking if I am sick or something...' Uh oh, is there an emergency exit around?

Will you follow me please?

"Did you follow me?" I asked walking to my desk. "What? You are just back from the washroom," he replied, "Why would I follow you there?" "No, not there..." I replied correcting him, "That would be so Gay, I meant follow me on twitter... " "Why would I follow you on twitter?" he questioned. "So that you hear me speak..." I replied. "Why would I hear you speak? We share the cubicle together and we are together for eight hours a day," he asked. "Because I make witty remarks on everything on twitter..." I replied. "But you make witty remarks on everything you see, and I don't like it...." he resorted. "But my remarks are refined and subtle on twitter," I argued, "And I write them very carefully thinking about everything..." "Where you doing that in the meeting with your phone?" he questioned. "What?" "I

The moaning of life #2 Childhood Trauma

The entire shark family is out for a hunt, and the little fish are running for their life. We get to cheer as the Baby Shark does Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo with his family, calling on the family - extended family and sometimes robots on the 'hunt' because your offspring decides that that is the one song they want you to play or a tantrum follows. Many of you will say it's not the content but the catchy tune that draws the babies towards the nonsequential song, but it's more than that. It's the sheer repeatedness that draws your angst towards the piece. And YouTube provides the music based on how much time you want your baby to be engaged to it. You have a 60+ minute version and a 120+ minute version. The same shark family going out on the same hunt. And it's not just the Shark family. Weirdly, baby JJ and his family sing random songs, go on a holiday and even increase the family. I am talking about Cocomelon, which has arrived in your child's life as he murmurs t
