A lot of posts/articles have been dedicated to Sathya Saibaba and his Athi Rudra Yagna being conducted for world peace in Tiruvanmiyur, Chennai. Hotel accomodation is near impossible and a client of mine, who flies business class, had to stay in a lodge in Vadapalani! Here is a glimpse at some things I overheard and saw that apalled and amused me:
"He has resolved world issues they say but he has created traffic problems in Tiruvanmiyur."
" I am unable to volunteer for want of time. I really want to" From a person who shudders to volunteer at Annual Day Gatherings because she fears crowds.
" I wonder what his haircare regimen is" from a balding friend.
A foreign couple, dressed like typical back packers mentioned " We have cut our Kerala trip and come here instead"
"They have his feet in all those hoardings. Looks so well pedicured." The other person said- "I do not think saints like him do anything artificial. Must have had massages not pedicure."
" Did you know? He is a paedophile" Thank God I do not know and would like to let it stay that way.
I met a blogger I frequent, in person, for the first time. Once I got back home, Navy asked me " Did you live up to her mental image of you? " I had to say" I do not know" In fact come to think of it, we never discussed that aspect. But I am sure we bloggers who do not share our pic, leave it to the reader's imagination/ visualisation.
It will be nice to know how I am picturised by the rest of you....the good, the bad and the ugly. So do write in. And if any of you would like to know how i visualise you, just ask me!
Of course, this is not open to those who have met/ know me already.
