Story of a lost journalist

Six totally-unimportant random updates

Filed under: Daily Rot,Diary — Cris @ 23:30

– Day 6 without phone. Loving it, loving it… but I could very well be fighting a losing battle. Sigh, let’s face it. The world needs my voice floating across its multimillion mobile towers.

– Suspect I had a minor attack of dyslexia in my childhood. Had the habit of getting the words jumbled up – ‘akusam’ for ‘asukam’, ‘sadara’ for ‘sarada’ and ‘akosan’ for ‘asokan’ being some of the most repeated bits in family jokes.

– When Cris closes a door, she opens a window. Facebook is on now.

– Just a kg short of the big 5-O! Sigh, the blissful schooldays of underweight!

– Very upset that the blue eyed European on the streets not only failed to notice me, but chose the dirty street corners in the city to me for his camera! How rude!

– Seriously think that there should be a job-at-first-sight provision which’d let you chuck the tests and interviews and take you straight to the job. Especially in Canada and London.



  1. -Yep , u might loose the battle against mobiles…

    -And there is no reason of suspicion.. It was a major attack…

    -When u close the window,make sure there is an Airhole or Keyhole Left….

    -Well , poor Bloke ,Blame it on his Blue Eyes, it never has 20/20 vision,even if a Tele-Lens is used….

    -Well,its time to get a better wieghing scale…..

    – At- first-sight , really…:-p

  3. A reporter without a phone! Sacrilege! Would soldiers go to battle without a rifle, would a photographer abjure his camera, can a tailor forswear his scissors, can Baba Ramdev live without his beard, will Sri Sri Ravishankar ever drop one of his Sris… 🙂

    • Madhavan: LOL! Sri Sri definitely can’t be without a Sri :D. I am trying to prove how superheroes never had a mobile phone while saving the world and how odd it would have been if Spidey while clawing along walls, stopped to pick a mobile from his hood pocket. My editor however is not convinced.
