Questioning one’s Lordship


New Hampshire was a big surprise. The political polls and surveys ended up being a mockery. How can someone with a 13 point lead lose with a 2 point margin? – not even close..! Anyways, they have moved on – at least Bill Richardson has.
Michigan primary was a joke too. The Democrats couldn’t let Clinton battle against anyone known. Instead, she took a 10+ point lead over the uncommitted.

So much snow had fallen in the last couple of weeks that the squirrels had to build an igloo to store their nuts..(No..I am not applying for Letterman’s writing team!!!)

On a totally different note, Have been educated quite a bit on Ramayana by my new found blog satirist. And if this guy does not have creativity, who else does? Not to pile on the base he had already built by questioning the very premise of the authenticity of Valmiki Ramayana – but I have always considered the epic as it was told, to be a North Indian version only. Even though Kamban’s version has the story set in the very same sleepy UP town with a slightly tamilized versions of the characters (Dasrath became Dasarathan..Ram became Raman and Ravan became Ravanan), there was a nativity to it that a Tamilian could relate to. Whether you agree with the diversity in Ramayana’s versions and how no one can categorically say that Valmiki’s is the most authentic, or not, the satire and humor is amazing. After reading this blog, I have more convincing reasons to question Ram’s lordship.

Besides fantasizing about being a Peter Gibbons at least for a couple of days at my work, I think I have a long way to go to realize some of the other fantasies. But like any ambitious man out there, I will get there!
