So it actually IS dil kabAddi

December 9, 2008

My sister seriously thought it was Dil Kabsddi (the way the second ‘a’ is stylised).Tried to convince me of the same and even asked me what that word means..And she is the self-proclaimed hindi expert in the family.

The way to a happy live-in relationship is to convince the partner that cooking together is almost like a sex game,introduce the concept of Nigella Lawson to him.Enjoy while he grinds and grates  and you are left with the high end part of the job.

Then convince him that cooking alone is fun AND manly (for the new age men).

Now sit back,relax and blog,while he surfs the net for new recipes and shops and cooks!!! No, I am not dreaming.Just thinking of ‘ how next’ when the novelty of this thing wears off him.

Is there any dummy guide to making polite converstion with your boss while having lunch together ? Talking about work won’t help since I won’t be able to contribute much to it.

    the novelty will wear off… he will evolve.. yes.
    but that’s the best way to remain imaginative and innovative. who knows, someday, u’ll be chief innovation officer or some such! 😉

    my boss and i discuss industry gossip. 😀 he talks, i listen.

    follow my strategy. ‘your choley is the world’s best, and i sooooooo feel like having it tonight’ and you will see him springing up and cooking oh-so enthusiastically. of course, you can substitute choley with any dish and you will pretty much get the same result. you do have to take care that your demands are well spaced out so he doesn’t catch on to your vile secret strategies. 😛

    my boss talked about scheduling a lunch the day i joined. i’m still waiting for it to happen. hmph!

    Irrfan Khan was simply too good. I think he just stole the movie away from others. Konkona, Rahul and Soha were just swept away.

    Loved the plot, though it was a copy of “Husbands and Wives” and well executed. I think urban India is now encountering what America faced a few decades ago

    Did you Have to tell everybody that? That stupid “a”.
    Enjoy the fact that you can go and watch movies. I was so jealous when you said you were out watching a movie. What luxury!

    Well, I actually thought cooking together was a sex game. Isn’t it? But cooking alone sucks!
