To: Mr. & Mrs. K V George

Back from a two-day trip to Trivandrum and Cochin. This post is an absolute rant.

To,
Mr. & Mrs. K V George:

First and foremost, the two of you sat next to me on the flight back to Bombay and ensured that all I did throughout those two hours was read 'Shame' by Rushdie and of course, twiddle my thumbs. For ruining the possibility of sitting next to some curvaceous female and spending quality time discussing something-in-general-and-nothing-in-particular, a wide majority of "Single, 25-yr olds" might believe, reason enough to rant against you. Not me. You see I am quite a generous guy. But what you did, or to be more precise, what you did not do, pissed me.

In the midst of turbulent weather and a plane-rocking-like-a-train, the last thing anyone wanted was to listen to some stupid cellphone ringtone. Tee-Tee-Tee-Teeee-Teeee. Tee-Tee-Tee. But, I had to. 140-odd passengers had to. Inspite of being repeatedly asked to switch off your cellphones, you two had the audacity to ignore the instructions of the cabin crew. Man is said to have evolved from the apes. What animal did the two of you evolve from? Donkeys. In fact, I would be insulting donkeys by claiming that you evolved from them. You serve as a perfect example for the 'Money cannot buy Common-Sense' adage.

A rant post without gaalis is like paani puri without paani :-)
That was an attempt at 'Sidhuism'
And Surya successfully cracks another one of those....tee hee...

That apart, the general populace does need to learn about cell-phone etiquette.
