Dhoni, his marriage and the recession- How things affect a seemingly normal guy!





I am happy for Dhoni. His wife is so pretty, so homely, so good looking and so………. And I am much-much happier that he has finally got himself married for more reasons than one. My wife initially took to the message as if her boyfriend of many-many births had finally decided to dumb her for someone smarter. To say the least, she was severely heart broken. She didn’t cook and even refused to change my daughters surprisingly heavy pampers and I had to survive on Kitchidi cooked by me.

I wonder what’s so special about Dhoni that married women like my wife forget their sexier and better looking husbands ( no seriously, I had a good look at myself in the mirror after this incidence and found myself Hotter than Dhoni and have many reasons to think so.) and behave as if they had just cut their 14th birthday cake. No Wonder women still are an enigma!No amount of Albert Einstein and E=MC2 will solve this issue! Suddenly when I look at the above Photo of Dhoni, I feel, as if, I am looking at my wife’s ex-boyfriend. Most women can do this to their husbands!Enigma, No doubt!

And finally the recession has hit the country I live and the businesses are majorly down. I seriously don’t know when my wicket would fall, but it surely would. And that would be a reason for me to come back to India and do something on my own. A restaurant perhaps or a dealership/Franchisee.

I am already an established crackpot, but these days it looks like I am the only one in my company who is recession resistant. All my colleagues are shit scared of losing jobs but here I am, happy that it would open another window for me.Below are some quotes to hold up myself.

“When one door closes another door opens, but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.”
- Alexander Graham Bell –

Or in other words….

“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one, which has been opened for us.”
- Helen Keller -



But are these words just words for the sake of forming some quotable quotes, so that we remember the famous personality who quoted them? Is THINKING BIG an over hyped thing?

Man, I will never see an end to my self doubts!


And, Its become very hot here. The sand is mostly so hot that you could roast peanuts on them. Or to provide a better picture, apply some spices on your hand and stand in the sun for half hour,then  take a bite of  your hand and it would taste like chicken from KFC. That was an exaggeration on a grand scale, but it’s so hot that you can at least make fried eggs by breaking eggs on my terrace….

Smita said...

You are gonna hit me for this...

As far as recession is concerned I am sure u will survive thru the phase! I was also always sure that I will be laid off but luckily have survived till now :) and if u seriously wanna chase your dreams why waiting for being dumped??? Dump ur company and chase ur dreams :)

i dont like dhoni and really dont much care about celebrity marriages because they all seem fake to me some how. I believe in normal people like you and me, and our normal recession prone lives! We rock, not them!

Nona said...

Not to worry about recession! India is booming. ;)

Jadu Saikia said...

Nice post. I liked it. I think Dhoni did the right thing.

Aparna said...

I know millions of Indian women are going to hate me for this but I do not find Dhoni hot at all. Now all those football players I'm watching these days, hmmm, some of them are definitely drool worthy.
Come back to India, it has not been affected by the recession so badly. And with a billion plus people, we always will have space for one more eating joint.

Gayathri said...

Count me among the few females who do not find dhoni worth drooling over.. And among the few who care shit about celeb marriages..
Abt recession,..i'm too immature and too inexperienced to comment..

ZB said...

@Panorama: Yea, I know.....Recession, in a way is good....it makes people come out of their comfort zone and start thinking.....At least its true in my case.

@Nikita: Dhoni is certainly not hot....he is just warm(may be 70c).

@Hary:
Thanks :)
