THough I am an only kid and I have been spared all this and have been free to get up to all the mischief in this world that I can get... I did have a phase where my cousins.. took unnatural interest in my personal life... BRRRR... luckily... I shed their shadows from my back... since I was the native in my town and they were newbies and could not blackmail me

all one could do was read my diary ( i stopped writing one after that)

after which I decided to take action....

... specially when i knew about their secret girlfriends and smoking habits... #$%@#$ mags.. so would blackmail them in return... BUhahahhaah !!! they realised they could not get one on me and left me alone... hahaha !!!

So I guess... for me it was a case of people living in glass windows should not throw stones.....blah blah... story.. .LOLOL

aaah.. Songs... Actually this song would be a better choice for a theme to this post:
<i> Phoolon ka Taaron ka,
sabka kehna hai;
Ek hazaron mein,
meri behna hai;
Saari umar,
Sang rehna hai; </i>

Ya, thats just about what I know!
And I was talking about my own sister back home in Chennai and no one else who might be lurking.. As they say back at home - <i>Nalladhukku kalame illa</i> (there is no place in time for good intentions)! :p

Ash: Yeah *same pinch* Even I am stuck with nerds and dorks as friends(Prime example being patrix)

Jay-Z: Too much pent up anger on poor kid brother.lol.

Yeah cc, It was a little over the top. He made extra efforts not to end up in the same company or marry the same guy.

Anti: Scrabble/ Gilli danda/ should be able to get defeated to boost male ego/ Maiden overs/ gaalis...seriously man, are you looking for a bride or a custom-made software?

Gabby: I am impressed cos I am a scrabble lover. But it certainly remains to be seen what kinda scrabble was played, cos though I thought scrabble was not mainstream enough, a couple of friends of mine had this wonderful idea of playing "Gaali" scrabble as a party game! Major rule being, atleast 2 ppl who were not playing the game shld recognize and affirm that the claimed gaali was actually a gaali! A lot of ppl learnt a lot of new words that day.

Lalithaji: Whoa.. whoa.. time out..time out...Ummm! You can keep Pi for urself :p

Wouldn't mind if you'd find a female scrabble partner for me. Mind it though, I am utterly competitive in every thing i play, scrabble or gilli danda! And I am only used to bowling maiden overs and have never been bowled over by a maiden while competing.

I should probably get in touch with Pi discreetly to find out essential qualities that I shld look for while searching for a scrabble partner! And mebbe the experienced person he'd be, he'll probably tell me all the qualities (that he wishes that he caught earlier during his search) to run away from too...

ZO: What are you lamenting for? I thought I fired you.

Secondly, thanks ji for pointing out my illiteracy (sp?). Yes, I suck at spellings (but that one was bad!) and instead of being a spy (one is enough considering my brother's interesting activities have come down drastically- all he does is work these days), you could be my spell checker. I'll draft responses and send it over to you. You could also correct all the transmittals to my clients, grandma, apartment owner, cell phone companies ..etc. while I play Scrabble with Pi.

Arre, I am already spying on your bro. Now you want to see who does the better job, me or M? It sucks to be the bro of an alpha female. Sucks to be employed by one too.

BTW, alpha you can thank me for pointing out that you have spelt "privilege" wrong in the comments. Congratulations on getting "consequences" right :-)

How about older siblings who do everything "so perfectly" that life becomes one "keep up" race? Of course paying for your therapy is only one of the many ways they can make it up to you...

My sister thought the same until my mother started working in the same school. Now she works in the same place as my father.

In contrast with both she certainly prefers my company :).

AmitL: Don't let go of your trademark.:) After that ragging incident, my brother treated me like a stranger for a while. No, he doesn't blog..or maybe he does..hmm.. must be one sister-bitching blog.

Sowmya: I think they ought to be thankful at least.

smiley: I never beat him..just made him do a few errands here and there.

anumita: I think I might have to share this pride with my parents.*darn*

sanguine: Yeah total previlage! Poor kid.

Ramana: I miss him too..now you've mushed me up! But you guys also have your share of fun... I had written a post on that .other POV.:)

Matrix: Yeah, you could do with some spyting activity if you are sitting up at 4 am and posting comments. email me and I'll give you address of the target. Make sure you follow him into bathrooms too. You could contact Dr.Fillerman and get details on the case while transitioning it from him.

I think people got that deal. If you were the kind saving lives, you wouldn't be wasting your time here. And if you really want to save a life, you could send me a check for $5,000 dollars (imm.)..it's my dying wish. what can I say, I'm shallow even during death.
Dr. Fillerman

I am a PhD, not a PhD person. The only good that came out of that deal has been that I can put a Dr. before my name. Can't save no lives though.

Dr. Fillu: oh, you figured out I was talking abt you. How? I kinda vaguely alluded to it. You are a Phd person for a reason. Anyway, thanks to all the detective work you did, I was on top of things. And yeah, better not curse me..I'm still not over losing my wallet because of you! The other three times I lost ze wallets must also be due to remnants of that same curse.

Star, Are you saying my brother is not appreciative of my efforts? and if you still want torrid affair with Muslim guy, there's always Zoheb. Looks like you guys connected yesterday.

No, you can't be my twin. For that You need a paunch. As for coming first- Yay! No prize..all my saved up money goes in buying blog shares.

angel: They call you sister by your name? why? Does she have a name? *confused*

ramana: I pity you dearly.

Aunty: Trust me, you sister is doing penance standing on one leg and thanking the almighty that you are no where near. Sorry, had to break your bubble. My bro refuses to take up a job in Chicago or even Peoria.

So, tell me about Cleaveland someday.

Gabby: Keep a handky to be safe.

Haahaaha! But u know what, I miss being around my sis (younger) thro her college years. A cousin told me about this guy trouble that my sis had in college and I called her up one day from here to ask her what was up and put the idea in her mind that I have someone I know at her college who could talk to the guy (freshie like my sis) if he got too troublesome. She was surprised that her goody goody bro (boy, was she mistaken!) knew "people". But I think she got away from trouble without trouble! Atleast I hope she did...

Thats the problem with older siblings ... they look out for you far more than you need looking out.

I'll never forgive my elder cousins for ruining my torrid summer romance with the muslim neighbours son, years ago in India.
