The new Karrrrrrrrzzzzz!

Oh! So you dont believe in reincarnation and rebirth? You dont believe poor Himesssss when he cried hoarse and nasal about ek haseena and ek diwana? I do I do, Himess; dont you worry. I do believe that something done in the previous birth comes to haunt you in the present. I do believe that! Oh yes! You dont believe me?
Look at this

and now this

You may ask me what is this and how is it related to what I blabbered!

Well, to cut a long story short, I have this feeling you see that I may have been Tom in the previous birth who made life hell for Jerry. Not that I blame myself. Jerry is no less a troublesome brat. But then to take revenge, I think (again), Jerry took birth as Tom in the present world and planned to get friendly with my watchman. The watchman of my building was so taken by this new Tom's cuteness that he has now literally adopted him and this Tom fellow now thinks he owns this building. He also knows how I keep away from dogs and cats. That rascal keeps bursting and enjoying the milk packets delivered by the milkman everyday morning in a small bag which I duly keep outside my house.

And now, the last straw! This Diwali, I took 1 1/2 hours making the rangoli as shown in figure 1! I was so so proud of it and clicked it in my digicam. But then as the morning dawned a new drama unfolded, and as I opened my front door, I literally screamed in horror. One corner of my rangoli was totally jeopardised by that nasty troublesome Tom! I was as much in state of shock as Urmila was in the new Karrrrrrz! I couldnt comprehend how thoughtless anyone could be to simply make a mess of and hour and a half of hard work! But then I consoled myself and I decided that I wont give it up so easily. So, I chopped and cleaned that one corner of the rangoli and converted it to what is shown in figure 2! Sigh, beggars cant be choosers you see! I am still sad, mad, upset!!!!!!!

grrrrrrrrrrr groooooooowl! You just wait, you Tom. In my next birth I will be born as ...as...as.. I dont know what. But I will ensure I will spoil the rangoli you make. You just wait and watch!

Umm is Tom a human or a cat? I think its a human right?
So very insensitive of him. I would have given a good piece of my mind to him.
Hope u had a good Diwali in spite of this.

Angel :)
Thanks, dear. As Suma pointed, the cat was thoughtful enough to have spoilt only some part of rangoli :)

Suma :)
Nice indeed! Thanks for the compli and hope you had a great Diwali too :)

XH :)
Thank you. Thank you :) I think I have an alternate profession as a tailor - the way I cut and make up things ;)

Monika :)
Nopes, I havent seen Karrz yet but I did want to. You see, I wanted to have a good laugh ;)

Tinker :)
Thank you dear! Welcome to my space!

Reema :)
It was a cat but what I have not added here is that the previous day I had made another rangoli which was stamped mercilessly by a human who coolly said "sorry" and went off while I wanted to strangle him! grrrrr

Mama-mia :)
hehehe I am flying... on top of the world now!

WhatsInAName November 3, 2008 at 9:55 PM  

Shruti, Renu :)
Thank you very much

Parul :)
Sure. I will get in touch with you or just mail to me at towriteornot@gmail.com! It wil be my pleasure to meet up with one of the writers I really really look upto!

Smita :P
oh yes, that would be me! And this time the rangoli was made my ME ONLY ;)

NM :)
Thank you so much

Arty :)
I used the tea-seive. One of my friends even uses the flour seive! Thank you so much for the compliment :)

I think the second foto is more intriguing coz its asymmetric. Symmetry in designs is common, na? lol
I haven't watched Karzz... don't intend to, either. Nice, engaging writing!


Hip Grandma November 6, 2008 at 7:32 PM  

just doing some bloghopping and each post is as interesting as the previous one.I can understand your agony and do hope you give to Tom the treatment he deserves for spoiling your beautiful rangoli.I am with you. But you managed to rectify it quite well.Kudos!1

Usha November 11, 2008 at 3:42 PM  

oh, I feel so bad. Why don't you befriend Tom - perhaps he is doing all this to get your attention!

WhatsInAName November 11, 2008 at 9:29 PM  

Oh Rhet! You are so right. Asymmetry seems to attract more! Wonder why!!!

HHG :)
Thanks for the compliment. This Tom had the audacity to pass urine in front of my door today morning :( Its so frustrating I tel you!

Usha :)
Friends! :-O Maybe you are right. Let me try that!

verbivorehere December 2, 2008 at 10:05 AM
