You fallow

I have gone and asked this very important theological koschan to various Bangytown residents at various locations:

What if god was one of us. Just a slob like one of us.

Jason M, student St Jo's Commerce: Matsssa, what da? Don't 'ave any better work kuh? Some f*&^all question you'll ask off on a Monday. Coming to Aerosmith thuh?

V Putnanjappa, Lecturer, Vijaya Dental: Alla kanri, seeee, yif gaad vas vun aaf us, vyyy he is naat visibal? If he is visibal, then vy ve have to build tempal gimpal and aal? So... gaad is naat vun aaf us. Is it naat.

Snehalatha P, Student NMKRV: Aye nooo yaaaan, god is one of us only yaaaaan. Evvvry day when we pray for poor people's health he listens yaaaaaaan. Aye tell him nooo.

Shirley da Cunha, MCC: glowers, rolls eyes, turns on heel, looks over shoulder.

Manjunath S Gowda, BIT: Lei, baa illi. Yenande? God aa? Yaake, kannada barallva? Slap Hogu silentaagi. Firshtu, full aagi Kannadadal maatadak kalthko. Gothaytha? Bandbudthaane shtylaagi English maataadkondu.

R A Varadachar, Scientist : Seeeeeeeee it is immaterial what we think, because in the bigger picture nothththting is relevant. You fallow?

K P Vedavalli, ageing aunt : As long as we pray evvry day, do good deeds and have kind thoughts, it dozzzznt matter who or where God is da kanna. (bats eyelids and smiles beatifically)

Gigglemol Kuriyakose, nurse: Nyo nyo. Goad snote van oaf us. Jusste he is uh kamming from heavenly boadice.

Pullala Venkata Sai, software engineer: Jushtu, I want one clarificationnu. When it is naat paajbull to prove thissu, why we are trying? Arriving at conclujon is naat praababul. Therefore attempting to saalve this praablem is naat feajbul.

Bikram Soni, real estate agent: O yaar, daffynutely yaar. God ij vun of us. Yasterday only I saw him eating butter chicken bonelass near Forum yaar.

Assad Eddappa, page 3: I reeeely don't think he's one of us. How would he let Bangalore close down at 11:30 if he was, dahling. And seriously, if he were one of us, the least I'd expect him to do is dressss well. You know- wear clothes that fffit him. Bangalore neeeeeds a role model. You know?

MN Seshadri Iyer, branch manager, SBI (retd), Malleshwaram: You maadarn generation people koschan yevverything I say. Simply aping this weshtern idea of rationalizing yevverything is naat necessary, isn't it. Some things are naat meant to be understood, and Gaad is vunnaaf them. Better you accept it.

But.. Is he a stranger on the bus?

No.

OK.

Uyyo Pri- Saaise bittralri!!

Yar now you must come to Benglaur yaar. Vods this. Aapko toh aana hi hai. Phorum shorum mein phillum dekhke, pub shub jaayenge uske baad? Hai na.

Pri said...

CHAL HUT! [hee i didnt know how else to spell 'hut' but its making me giggle uncontrollably every time i see it]

but aap request karenge to hum aapke dil nahin dukhaayenge. himmesh jee ki latesht phillum ke liye chale kya? but only after snakes at gullus chaat phirsht. are you knowing if he is making the dhokla or the thepla?

Bikerdude said...

Himmesh's picture I will come with asterix-like sprigs of kothambri soppu stuck in either ear. As for theplo dhoklo- arra ra.. instantly I will come. Slurp.

Bloody no really nice Gujju restaurants in Blore no? Except that apology of a gujju thali at Sukh Sagar in majestic.

Bet there are more in Denver than Benglurs.

Pri said...

bwahahahaha @ kothambri soppu
and i dont actually like thepla/ dhokla. ive only eaten it in class [courtesy the kind north indian girls] and in class one will eat anything.
i dont know about gujju restaurants here. there is one decent Indian restaurant [called the TAJ MAHAL! entha unique name alva? i was there just this evening actually and giggled when i wrote out my check to 'TAJ MAHAL']
the worst part is that there isnt a single andra restaurant in the city. are you to be knowing of any in Houston. Research tells me you've been there and eaten there. Tell fastly begaas i am to be moving there soon and the availability of good Andra food could be a very important factor.

Bikerdude said...

Most of Gujarat lives in Houston so theres plenty of Injun food to be had there. Apparently the area next to the temple serves the best Injun food including South Indian. Other sundry Indian restaurants dot the country side like a rather unpleasant rash. Needless to say I gave them all a miss when I went there.

Y'all are gonna lurrrrrve Texas. Ah kin tell fron raght heer. Muhuhahahaha.

Pri said...

"Y'all are gonna lurrrrrve Texas. Ah kin tell fron raght heer. Muhuhahahaha."

How mins u are concluding this?

Also Houstanige yaavaga vaapas?

Bikerdude said...

Houston is not a nice looking city for sure, but wipe the dust off the surface and you'll find lots of stuff to do. I also think the people are much friendlier in Houston than at most other Emmetikkan cities Ive been to so far. Besides- Ah lurrrrves the accent!

Nesht yaavaag bartheno gothilri.

Pri said...

This one "friend" of mine was shocked that i was thinking of moving there. she was all like oh Austin's lovely. It's more classy but Houston is filled with Mexicans and Desis. i dont know why i even know such people.

Bikerdude said...

Haven't been to Austin and yes Ive heard a lot of ppl compare it favourably to Houston. But whats there (a) Its fairly close by and (b) Houston is nice enough to live in. Latinos and Desis notwithstanding (both of whom I kinda like actually) :)

Pri said...

well ya! the "friend" is desi herself, just a little stuck up.
i cant wait to move!
