on a blogging spree

you wont believe what happened today...
it was just another day at work and i had a book reading to cover. Ipsita Roy Chakraverti was reading a Paulo Coelho book(for those who havent heard of her,she is the founder of the wiccan brigade in calcutta)...i am not much of a believer,have never been one.but then when she said that there's someone on her right whose sister is going through a turmoil,i (sitting on her right) remembered Diya and realised maybe she was talking of me...i have been too shocked to think of it after that!
the wonders of the world never cease...i tasted the world's weirdest tea today.at the Cha Bar,some weird Ayurvedic piss like tea thing which two of my very esteemed friends ordered.i gave up after a few sips but my dear friend attempted to swallow it like tequilla with a spoonful of honey trying to act like the lemon slice's sorry substitute.thank god,she didnt puke.saved us the trouble of ordering for newspaper to clean it!!
then we bumped into a weird guy who eyed N in KFC and told him that only Mc D sells wraps and then the weirdo bowed to S as if to acknowledge her esteemed presence...if that wasnt enough,he walked to the gate,turned and waved at me and consequently followed it up by waving at all three of us from the car window!
and somewhere in the middle N got approached by pimps who asked him whether he wanted a "school girl" or "hostel girl"!!
park street,i tell you,is the place where you run into the weirdest people on earth.
wooh,what a day!

aha!Park Street! One should never forget the terrifying little lady who dodders abt asking for money for the 'little birds and animals with no homes, young sir, thank you for your concerns. no i'm not crazy'
tho Flurys is still the cream of the crop - they even got sax players in the evening.

i've almost spent half my adolescent life out there doing nothing more than observing people...especially MW r shamne footpath e bhikiri r moton boshe ami je koto boi porechi aar cigarette kheyechi bhogoban janen!! i just looove the place..and the people..too good, its the people and their faces and psychs that attract me the most ..so many different varieties..musicians, bisexuals pimps,call girls,transvestites(ei shedin i metro station e i saw two of em..i've got nothing against them but they just made a spectacle out of themselves)office goers teens,party hoppers,college crowds,foodies..all neon washed..life in a nutshell in a matter of metres and hours! Phenomenal!
