When I Went to San Francisco LGBTQ Pride Parade @45, 2015

SF Pride @ 45 : Equality Without Exception
June 27-28, 2015

Welcome to the most adventurously weird and different kind of parade where i marched in with my eyes wide open out of awe watching diversity all ages, color, pedigree bloom or rather hang in full monty ! 

I was marching towards BART (term used for bay area rapid transit = local train) i could see hordes of people all drenched in hues of pink or rainbow colors. I didn't know, i was going to the most funky talked about event of the century, ignorance is bliss and there my mind started having conversations on its own with eyes roaming like dozen frustrated men who never had     . 

Highest form of diversity is now mainstream ! Any thing can happen in California. Hail !
"Oh my god ! did i see her in sheer lacy lingerie and pink feathers or let me guess that is wearing only duct tapes putting victoria secret out of business."

"No, no, it can't be true - you can't wear a leash around your neck and your toy- where the dog?"

"Excuse me, are you both wearing the same under pants, at the same time and no one is even bothered to stare except this stupid small town girl."

I was like, has the parade already begun or this is just a trailor - picture abhi baaki hai mere dost ! It took me sometime to acclimatize to the colorful paraphernalia and self attestation of a desi in a mad-mad world as i recollected all the cheap whatsapp LGBT jokes and bollywood numbers - Munda saada bigad gaya. Though, i never understood why my fakebook friends changed their profile pictures. So typical of us Indians, going with the crowd without even knowing the subject in the first place. We like generalization - jack of all - master of none ! But seriously, changing profile pics on fakebook while the real LGBT beacon was here. 


Midnight Pondering

As I am growing old, am I becoming ungrateful each passing day ?

The more my dreams are becoming realities the more greedy I am becoming in transit with expectation of having no lag time while going from A to B. And when it’s happening, it’s more convenient to set the achievable targets however vague they may be. Because the longer ones need dedication, commitment, hard-work and perseverance. Am I saying, to please myself I am doing things which I might not do and still no one would die?

You know what I mean? 

Have you felt like this before? 

Or should I perceive it like this, that, when everything you wish turns into a reality, your life becomes boring. So, to continue the challenge and enjoying the ‘on your toes’ time you keep on re-discovering yourself. Like what Americans do, no pun intended. 


Gore Hain to Kya Hua ?

With frequent skype calls i have realized i look horrible, so much so that, i keep looking at my own pic as how am i looking or like is it really me types. 

And in between couldn't help but notice, Sinha Ji's improved complexion. 

And the funniest part is when I asked so how is everything there ?

He took a deep breath (sign of something serious he is about to blurt) and then said, "Yeh log gore to bahut hote hain" !

I was like what ? You are an open racist out there !

That's for a fact that Indians are most discriminatory in nature ( someone had told me from their international NGO experience). 

And she also said, that the most "superiority complex"ones are the Arabs. And i had experienced this on Dubai airport, very much to my horror on my first international flight (alone).


Dental Porn to Panacea !

If the word ‘porn’ has excited you to read this post, you are going to get disappointed my dear or maybe not. Anyways, you are not going to believe me and still delve into it. Welcome on board.

One of the side effects of pregnancy is gums swelling, which I had when my daughter was born. The release of certain hormones which you don’t wish to know, I am sure, makes the gum prone for infection. The bad deal about this is you can’t have medicines since you are carrying, at first go. But if it’s unbearable you go hell bent on antibiotics. 

I was not so lucky. 

The Karnataka Rajyotsava falls on November 1st, which is a state holiday and religiously followed. And I happened to lose virginity of my gums around that time and survived the pain all throughout the day and night waiting for a sight of dentist, more than the fully grown 9 months baby kicking me every now and then. 


After surviving the longest night having more than 12 hours, we met dentist next day. She gave painkillers and I happened to deliver on 5th. This was in 2012. The day when I realized god was preparing for this havoc and giving me poor signals of what labour pain is though he missed his anatomy classes and got away with it, since he is he – God (god damn it) ! 

Two years later, I don’t what the connection is with Nov 1st, same episode got repeated. This time too, my gums acted and screamed like virgin pinacolada. My first reaction was, how my gums got pregnant this time, they didn’t have even have **x? But I said to my gums, Shut up yaar, you have been doing **x on the beach over blue lagoon, now call your bloody mary to take you to the dentist. 

With a series of drinks, that I never had, and sweets which I only engulf thrice a week - yesterday, today and tomorrow, it had to happen sooner than this. 

I was shaken and not stirred. 

And we went again. During the drive, like a wise women that I am becoming with blogging heheheh, I thought my wisdom tooth is erupting. Finally, giving me a dental certificate of words, that, I am going to utter or rather learn how not to chew words and put my foot in your, oops my mouth. 


Visit To Dentist and Remembering Raju !

Recently I have got a pearly white ‘composite filling’ tooth. They call it number 7. With all our childhood memories goes to saluting the dental hygiene of Raju in a classroom in front of Master Ji, I guess I missed my lessons.

Raju tumhare daant to motiyoon rahe hain jaise chamak!
Kyun ho Master Ji! Main Dabu Laal baby Manjan jo estemaal Poker hoon!

Earlier Master Ji and now me, we both envy pearly white teeth. May be Sinha Ji has better dental set up though he is very particular to expose them through a heartfelt laughter, as if giggles are taxed. He has questioned the lack of discipline, with which I am raised in childhood (including other aspects as well) and attributed my not brushing teeth before bed tea to that. 

365 days x 5 years, there is not a single day when I have asked him like a doting wife that I am, for a cup of tea and he replied, “Let me brush”.Hope you had read my account on why bed is taken..."Bed Tea Lovers Tell Me"?

If Only I was #BackFromTheDead

First of all, i wouldn't like to come back after i died. Secondly, if at all i have to for IndiSpire edition two, i will come but may be lets say after few years. May be a decade.

Here is an account of what i saw in 2024. 

One fine day, we the hell dwellers were given free passes to listen to Jagjeet Singh's ghazals in heaven on the eve of new year. There God, who was an avid fan of Jaggi ji got bugged with a ghost who was consistently peeping down from heaven, using unsolicited use of wifi GPS services available during the concert. God wasted no time and took that ghost on remand and interrogated "What's bothering you so much in between "yeh daulat bhi le lo, yeh shaurat bhi le lo" ghazal. The hell's super excited ex-blogger ghost said, Sire, when i died the crowd was so much that they pushed me in hell without listening to my last wish.
