The last i was cried twice. and cribbed more than that.Let me tell you the whole story. I bought a Brand new Nokia E65 for my dad (using his card :P) in the month of November. it turned out that the pone had some problem and it went to Offline mode. So it was dutifully given to the Nokia Care @ kolkata for repair. Just to know that the phone is not repairable. Now comes the intresting part. “Nokia India” has a policy in which the they let the guys at decide what to do with the cell phone. and most of the time the nokia care guys give you a replacement phone. If you think its a brand new piece than you are wrong they give you a refurbished set. You call it my luck!! The set that the nokia guys returned to my dad is more than 6 month old. and looks dirty than his 1 year old Nokia 1100. Here is the conclusion in the matter.1. Nokia makes buggy sets and sell them to customer for hefty (for a premium) price.2. when the customer goes for the repair he is handed old piece and the buggy piece goes back for the sale. 3. On calling the customer you are greeted with a voice like that of a landlord to his tenant after 3rd of non payment. Nokia has the worst customer care in where the guys are rude and are not ready to listen to what the client says and go on like a tape recorder!!From now on i will say no to NO-kia. iPhone here i come. (Apple has the best costumer support in the world)This week end i saw two movies both has two thing common. First both had child actor having reel age of 8 years. second both the movies made me Cry. Before you comment WTF you are guy and guys don’t cry. well i cry.In TZP i cried when the title song started. I didn’t cried at the end but i cried when i saw there are so many children and there are so few to help them. and i cried when i watched the bubbly movie called “The Game Plan” i cried because i in some way missed my parents. (ask anyone who lived in hostel how much they miss there parents.)
BKP – That’s so cool.
Ank – What? It’s cool? My dad is sick and my mom is leaving me and you say its cool. So mean. I never knew guys could be so insensitive.
BKP – Actually I meant its cool for your dad that there is some one is coming to take care of him. BTW I am always there to take care of him.
They know each other for just 5 days and Mr. BKP is head over heels to do anything for miss Ankita. I am sure miss Ank would have been really flattered by this comment.
Ank – Thanks for the concern BKP, but one of my friend will stay with me and there I have got a cousin in the town to take care of me. BTW you had viral? Its you, who need care more than me.
BKP – when is you mummy coming back?
Ank – Most probably she will be back by Monday.
BKP – That’s great.
Ank – what’s great in it. I will be alone for two days. BTW talk to you later. I am helping mom in packing.
BKP – Ok. Bye. Talk to you after your aunty leaves.
The same night.
BKP – Hi had your dinner.
Ank – ya, Just now with mummy.
BKP – ok. So mummy left?
Ank – Yes. I am already missing her.
BKP – Don’t worry I am there na. (Read: Main Hoon Na!)
Ank – Thanks. Good night. I am in no mood to talk.
BKP – Hey. Good morning.
Ank – Morning. How are you?
BKP – I am good. What about you?
Ank- bad. I have got special classes. (Remember Ank is doing Dental.)
BKP – Ok talk to you after classes.
Saturday went just like that.
Sunday. The big day for MR BKP cos today Ankita will meet her.
Ank – Hello. How are you?
BKP – I am good. So what’s you plans for the day.
Ank – going to End Point with friends. (For unknown end point is a small hill just on the outskirts of manipal. Where you can find couples having a gala time 😉 ;))
BKP – Good. Enjoy your day.
Ank – wanna come?
BKP – Nah. Meet you after you come back.
Ank – Ok.
BKP – bye.
BKP went to Big Bazaar to do some shopping including a new t-shirt worth rupees 149 is bought.
Time Evening 6’ Clock.
BKP – Hey good evening.
Ank – hello.
BKP – How was the day.
Ank – good. Had loads of fun. Now getting hungry. (Hinting BKP to take her out)
BKP – hey me to hungry. Why don’t we meet for dinner?
Ank – Great idea. See you @ 7:30
BKP – but where?
Ank – you tell.
BKP – I don’t know manipal. You tell me.
Ank – lets meet at Valley View. (Valley View is a 3 star hotel run by Welcome Group and the best in the town)
BKP – Ok. See you at 7:30
Ank – hey one of my friend will be coming with me. I hope you don’t mind.
BKP – no no it’s ok. Meet you at Valley view (VV). Where is VV?
Ank – Its near TC (Tiger circle). Ask any one. Or just ask your Auto guy to take you to VV.
BKP – But how will I recognize you.
Ank – I will be wearing a pink top and Jeans. Same for my friend. (The most common dress for a gal)
BKP – ok than see ya @ 7.30
BKP – Hey me at VV. Where are you?
Ank – I am at my place. I will be late.
BKP – ok.
Ank – do one thing. Go and book a table for 3 of us. See you in ten minutes,
BKP – ok. I have already done that.
After 10 minutes.
Ank – hey I can’t come. My friend is not feeling well
BKP – why what happened?
Ank – Don’t know is getting dizzy and stuff. May be sunstroke.
BKP – ok than you come alone.
Ank – ok. You order something I will in ten minutes.
BKP – ok.
After 20 more minutes.
Ank – hey can’t come.
BKP – what happened?
Ank – my cousin has come home. My friend called him.
BKP – what?
Ank – I am so sorry. May be we will some other time. I am sorry.
BKP has kept all these info secret from all of roomies. He never told us what was the T-shirt for or why was for Manipal suddenly at 7:30.
But he never expected a welcome at home just to find Ankita AKA Santa waiting for him. He had a dinner at the one of the best hotel in the town. I hope this lesson teaches MR. BKP not to run after Gals.
For those who are curious Mr. BKP had a heavy heart and lighter wallet after the incident.
If any one wants the original transcript please excuse me, this was one the most horrible English-speaking guy I have ever seen.
After effects. My telephone bill has gone double due to this silly message session. By luck Mr. BKP has a free SMS facility.
This article includes few unknown characters and a prominent character known as BKP (name withheld without request). Incidentally this guy is also from Bihar and he is my flat mate.
Before we start the story a little bit of background about BKP. It will help you understand the article better. BKP is an electronics engineer, 2007 batch. He joined my company as a Trainee Control engineer (Trainee Tester, for technical personals). Two of his habit, which makes him different from other, is ?
1. Loves to boast about stuffs, which is indigestible. (For e.g. – He has a brother in USA working in some MNC, one studying in Harvard and don’t know how many more. Seems his father had just work after his marriage)
2. He loves girls. It’s not that boys love gals but he loves anything called a gal.
Now the story, It was a lonely Sunday night. Most us were went to the bed early because we knew what was in the store for us the very next day. It was Monday the worst day of the week. If you don’t know why it’s the worst day (Start working you moron). Our dear Mr. BKP as usual was chatting with something called a gal. It must be his good day ‘cos some one from an unknown messaged him. He shot back “who is this.” The person on the other side preferred to stay silent. And it’s the night end.
Next morning curiosity had the better of Mr. BKP and he sends another text
“Who is this?”
Pat comes a hostile reply, “ Robot, age -199 location – Dry River, Mars. Stop disturbing me you little earthling.”
Mr. BKP who learnt not to lose his confidence during such encounters sends another text, “Hey you its you who disturbed my sleep last night. So now tell me who are you and what on the sleeps name you sent me a good night message”
This time the sender softens a bit and replies “ Oh! I am sorry to disturb your sleep. Hello I am ………”
To be continued…
For those who are cursing me please go and curse honeybee. I learned This trait from her.
I love the guy called calvin either he is the cute little boy in th Home Alone Series or the guy in the cartoon strip. Yesterday i found some of his strips which shows his Telephone Etiquettes. Boy he is something. Money is the first priority in his life. Just look at the comments on everything!! (He must not have wanted to talk to mom very bad)

How many times you have done this. You were asked to call some one and you forget?

Another Forward!! I loved the ending. much like the jeff archers endings!!
A boss wondered why one of his most valued employees had not phoned in sick one day. Having an urgent problem with one of the main computers, he dialed the employers home phone number and was greeted with a Child’s’ whisper.
“Is your daddy home?” he asked
“Yes” whispered the small voice
“May I talk with him?”
Surprised and wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, “Is your Mummy there?”
“May I talk with her?”
Again the small voice whispered, “No”
Hoping there was somebody with whom he could leave a message, the boss
Asked, “Is anybody else there?”
“Yes, whispered the boy, “a policeman”
Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee’s home, the boss asked,
“May I speak with the policeman?”
“No, he’s busy”, whispered the child
“Busy doing what?”
Talking to daddy and mommy and the fireman”, came the answer.
Growing more worried as he heard what sounded like a helicopter, through the earpiece on the phone, the boss asked, “What’s that noise?”
“A helicopter” answered the whispering voice.
“What is going on there?!”, demanded the boss, now truly apprehensive.
Again whispering, the child answered, “The search team just landed the helicopter.”
Alarmed, concerned and a little frustrated the boss asked, “What are they searching for?!!.”
Still whispering, the young voice replied with a muffled giggle…
