Hello World!

I was born on August 4'Th 2008 and it was my dad's shear laziness that delayed my meet with the world. OK, lets not get into his details as that's never ending and I guess my Mom can talk volumes about him. I am gonna hijack my dads blog now and then until I am old enough to maintain one. My dad says, I have lot of Mama's/Babai's(uncle's), Pinni's/Atta's(Aunts) spread all across the globe and many in India too. So, Good Morning, Good Afternoon and Good Night in what ever part of the world you may be. I miss you all!

Hello Everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Coming to me, what makes me special? I am not going to join IBM, something like they show in their commercials :-). My dad is the eldest son in his family and so is my Mother, she is the eldest in her family. My paternal Grand dad is eldest in his family and so is my paternal Grand Mom. This does not end here, Even my Maternal Grand Parents are both eldest in their respective families. So, that makes me the very first in Generation Next. So every one next in the entire family tree is after me only...ha ha ha ha(I love to do that evil laugh). I get to bully on everyone after me and I get every ones very best attention as I am the very first. That's a combo pack anyone would love to have.

My name? My dad and mom couldn't figure out a name for me so for now my dad refers me as Surineni Jr. In my cradle ceremony they whispered 3 names into my ear "Meghana(Megha)", "Medha", "Moksha". Most of the people liked Meghana, few Medha and no one liked Moksha.I am wondering what they would finalize on!
More about me later....Chao!

P.S: Do read the comments on the photographs, incase my parents have something else to say.

An actual essay written by a school boy(all original spellings)


The original inhabitants of ancient India were called Adidases, who lived in two cities called Hariappa and Mujhe-na-Daro. These cities had the best drain system in the world and so there was no brain drain from them. Ancient India was full of myths which have been handed down from son to father. A myth is a female moth. A collection of myths is called mythology, which means stories with female aricatures.One myth says that people in olden times worshipped monkeys because they were our incestors.

In olden times there were two big families in India. One was called the Pandava and the other was called the Karova. They fought amongst themselves in a battle called Mahabharat, after which India came to be known as MeraBharat Mahan.In midevil times India was ruled by the Slave Dienasty. So named because they all died a nasty death. Then came the Tughlaqs who shifted their capital from Delhi because of its pollution. They were followed by the Mowglis. The greatest Mowgli was Akbar because he extinguished himself on the battlefield of Panipat which is in Hurryana. But his son Jehangir was peace loving; he married one Hindu wife and kept 300 porcupines. Then came Shahajahan who had 14 sons..Family planning had not been invented at that time. He also built the Taj Mahal hotel for his wife who now sleeps there. The king sent all his sons away to distant parts of India because they started quarrelling. Dara Seiko was sent to UP, Shaikh Bhakhtiyar was sent to J & K, while Orangezip came to Bombay to fight Shivaji. However, after that they changed its name to Mumbai because Shivaji's sena did not like it. They also do not like New Delhi , so they are calling it DoorDarshan.After the Mowglis came Vasco the Gama. He was an exploder who was circumcising India with a 100 foot clipper.

Then came the British. They brought with them many inventions such as cricket, tramtarts and steamed railways. They were followed by the French who brought in French fries, pizzazz and laundry… But Robert Clive drove them out when he deafened Duplex who was out membered since the British had the queen on their side.Eventually, the British came to overrule India because there was too much diversity in our unity. The British overruled India for a long period. They were great expotents and impotents. They started expoting salt from India and impoting cloth. This was not liked by Mahatma Gandhi who wanted to produce his own salt.This was called the Swedish moment. During this moment, many people burnt their lion cloths in the street and refused to wear anything else. The British became very angry at this and stopped the production of Indian testiles.In 1920, Mahatma Gandhi was married to one wife. Soon after he became the father of the nation. In 1942 he started the Quiet India moment, so named because the British were quietly lootoing our country. In 1947, India became free and its people became freely loving.

This increased our population. Its government became a limited mockery, which means people are allowed to take the law in their own hands with the help of the police. Our constipation is the best in the world because it says that no man can be hanged twice for the same crime.It also says you cannot be put in prison if you have not paid your taxis. Another important thing about our constipation is that it can be changed. This is not possible with the British constipation because it is not written on paper.The Indian parlemint consists of two houses which are called lower and higher. This is because one Mr Honest Abe said that two houses divided against itself cannot withstand. So Pandit Nehru asked the British for freedom at midnight since the British were afraid of the dark. At midnight, on August 15, there was a tryst in parlemint in which many participated by wearing khaki and hosting the flag.

Recently in India, there have been a large number of scams and a plaque, it can be dangerous because many people died of this plaque in Surat. Scams are all over India. One of these was in Bihar where holy cows were not given anything to eat by their elected leader.. The other scam was in Bofor which is a small town in Switzerland. In this, a lot of Indian money was given to buy a gun which can shoot a coot.Presently India has a coalishun government made up of many parties, left, right and centre. It has started to library the economy. This means that there is now no need for a licence as the economy will be driven by itself.India is also trying to become an Asian tiger because its own Tigers are being poached. Another important event this year was the Shark meeting at Malas Dive. At this place, shark leaders agreed to share their poverty, pollution and population

A different experience

I guess from past 25 years I have been travelling by train and this time it was different of all. And believe me it was so different that I ventured out writing and publishing this post right from where I am sitting, the train.

When I mention train journey in India, what strikes head on to most of the people is crowded compartments, Chaos(and if your seats drop right in between a marriage party :-), god save you from all the pandemonium), uncleanliness and not to forget stinking bathrooms.

As I said it was different this time, No crowded compartments: may be there were a dozen other people in our compartment apart from my mom and me. The reason might be that we were travelling in mid day on a working day and we are definitely not on a pilgrimage route. But what ever the reason might be, I am out of chaos, pandemonium and people who throw all the waste from what they eat in the train as if it was their personal garbage dump which runs on their tax money(seeing whom my blood pressure raises). It was like a personalised space on wheels which stops now and then and with occasional visit of sales guys with water bottles/cool drinks and snacks.
This is the view of the compartment I am travelling right now from where I am sitting :-), after completing 60% of the journey.

Also, there are few other things that were missing like beggars, kids who clean the floor/ sing songs and expect money, sales men(books, Cd's, toys, and what ever), eunuchs. I think they also know there's not going to be much break even for their money Vs energy getting into a train with such less crowd.

There is one thing that I couldn't escape, and I am sure none of us in most public places in India can escape "A Stinky and dirty Toilet".
