This is going to be a long rant which may seem offensive to some people. So if your sensibilities are easily hurt, please don’t read further.
So…you’re still here. In case you didn’t know I was in Mcleodganj last month and wrote a long series of posts about my experiences there. What I left out was how some stupid tourists make it highly annoying for other people. I usually hate generalisations, but this experience made it look like that some traits are ingrained in certain groups of people more than others.
In my experience, a majority of Indian women should not go out to travel unless it involves fully air-conditioned hotels complemented by cabs which pick and drop them to and from every destination. A professional photographer should also be included in the entourage just to provide them with an added incentive to come out of their cars. The photographer in turn should be expert in clicking photos tailor made for facebook.Continue reading
Came across this sign while looking for something somewhere in Gurgaon:
Well, nothing funny until you see this:
funny sign in gurgaon
Another signboard in a residential colony. We found it funny because it was the only parking related sign that we could see. Where do rest of the people park their cars ?
This is part two of one of my previous posts, Kind of funny conversations.
This one happened in my office. I was sitting in my cabin (not working :D), trawling the net for a good camera. I’m smitten by cameras with fancy features (about which I don’t know a thing), big lenses ( which I don’t know how to use) etc., the cheapest one of which will cost at least Rs 21000. Anyhow there I was, drooling over the specifications and sighing on reading the prices when one guy came in for chit chat. He used to be a tour guide before he joined this company. After taking a look at my screen, he goes like :
Him: So, you’re going to buy a camera ?
Me: Yeah. If I can find someone to buy my kidney or liver.
Him: Uh ?
Me: Never mind.
Him: You know, I have a really good ipod lying around at home. Never ever used it. A German tourist gave it to me when he was going back. He thought that he had too much luggage.
Me: Nice. Why don’t I meet such generous people ? [[sigh]]
Him: You know, you can use that ipod with your camera. I don’t have any use for it.
Me: Uh ? Ipod with camera ? How does that work ?
Him: You are thinking of buying that camera worth 22000 and still don’t know about that ?
Me: Seems like that.
Him: Hah. You just put your camera on that ipod and take pictures when you need it really steady.
I stare blankly for a while and then it hits me.
Me: Are you talking about an tripod ?
Him: yes yes,. wahi tripod.
