Not On Assignment

A journo's jottings under no deadline pressure (since Jan 1, 2010)

Jai Maharashtra!

To the outsider, i.e., somebody from outside Maharashtra, the Marathi manoos is a colourless, boring, humourless guy, the equivalent of the stiff upper lip British.
But thrown him among his own ilk and you can see his sense of humour suddenly blooming.
Sample this incident:
A motorcyclist rides into his housing complex and sees a bunch of neighbours standing next to the security cabin and talking amongst themselves.
He slows down, quips “Standing committee ka?” (What, standing committee?) and before any of the “members” can react, zooms off towards his parking lot!

  1. A very witty man indeed. It made me remember an episode of “Yes Minister”. The series according to me is the best comedy ever produced for the idiot box.
