A Guest Post For A Super Blogger!

Strangely one morning, as she was probably nursing a particularly bad hangover, Purba Ray of A-Musing fame, figured that my writing was worthy of her blog. Her blog – which is among the funniest and most insightful ones out there! So when she asked me to do a guest post for her, I didn’t even stop to ask if she was feeling ok – I just said YES!

Here is the piece. Do read, comment, share – you know, the usual stuff that friends do!

So have most other leaders. All except Jayalalitha, who decides to stay put in Chennai under the perceived threat of a snub.

    Rickie! I am here after going to Purba’s blog first 🙂 You are getting better by the day. This was one hilarious post!

    This is one post which brought me face-to-face with two bloggers -you and Purba – who give me an inferiority complex, considering that I too purport to write humor. All it needed was Debajyoti Ghosh as well for me to bury my head in sand and never look up 🙂

      OMG, Suresh, can anyone pay nicer compliments than you? The answer is an emphatic no!
      Thanks so much for the appreciation as always. Well, I try to be funny…looks like my efforts may be bearing results occasionally!
