What Great Great Grand Parents are doing now?

Great Grand Parents:

Abhinav and Priya’s Conversation excerpts- Happened Yesterday.

Abhinav has been asking many questions about Aging and Dying after his prolonged time spending with Great Grand parents at Andipatti (my grandma) & Gobi (Priya’s Grandma). Since both Great grand parents are Female, He even questioned Why Girls are becoming like them after aged and started crying that ” Priya also become one day”. Because, On his observation, Both my grandma and Priya’s grandma are having hand shivering, wrinkled skin, very thin body. Especially my grandma is 80% of time bedridden.

Yesterday, All of sudden Abhinav Asked Priya ” Where is grand parents of Great grand parent?”.
Priya managed to answer that ” they are all with God now”.
Abhinav again asked ” what they are doing over there?”
Priya told “They are all watching us from there !!”
Abhinav replied ” if they can see us, why not us?”

Priya Blinked, laughed and changed the Topic.


Abhinav Thoughts

Driverless Car:

Me, Priya and Abhinav were travelling to one of the relative’s House. Me and Priya talked about Traffic and Driver’s stress due to indiscipline driving. Abhinav was behind me for Hot-Wheels car during that time. After hearing our conversation, Abhinav suddenly told us that ” After i grew up, there won’t be driver in any of the Vehicles, it just goes wherever you want to go”. So no worries on driving part. Me and Priya Surprised to hear and Priya immediately nodded approval for his Hot Wheels car.
Some cartoon or our conversation might be trigger for his innovative thought. We were very happy for his thought process and innovation.

Who is Our Prime Minister?

Yesterday, while watching News @ NDTV, I told Abhinav that ” Shri.Narendra Modi is our New Prime Minister”. Abhinav refused and told me, “Manmohan singh (MMS) is our Prime Minister”. The i educated him and insisted MMS resigned as our Prime Minister. Abhinav quickly replied ” Which country Prime Minister is MMS at present?”.

PS: He thought Prime Ministry as Job, Prime Minister as Employee; So they always be as Prime minister. Actually yes. Logically No.

Live the Life; Celebrate each Moment – Fisherman Story

An American businessman took a vacation to a small coastal Mexican village on doctor’s orders. Unable to sleep after an urgent phone call from the office the first morning, he walked out to the pier to clear his head. A small boat with just one fisherman had docked, and inside the boat were several large yellowfin tuna. The American complimented the Mexican on the quality of his fish. “How long did it take you to catch them?” the American asked. “Only a little while,” the Mexican replied in surprisingly good English.

“Why don’t you stay out longer and catch more fish?” the American then asked. “I have enough to support my family and give a few to friends,” the Mexican said as he unloaded them into a basket.
“But… What do you do with the rest of your time?” The Mexican looked up and smiled. “I sleep late, fish a little, play with my children, take a siesta with my wife, Julia, and stroll into the
village each evening, where I sip wine and play guitar with my amigos.
I have a full and busy life, senor.”

The American laughed and stood tall. “Sir, I’m a Harvard M.B.A. and can help you. You should spend more time fishing, and with the proceeds, buy a bigger boat. In no time, you could buy several boats
with the increased haul. Eventually, you would have a fleet of fishing boats.”

He continued, “Instead of selling your catch to a middleman, you would sell directly to the consumers, eventually opening your own cannery. You would control the product, processing, and distribution.
You would need to leave this small coastal fishing village, of course, and move to Mexico City, then to Los Angeles, and eventually New York City, where you could run your expanding enterprise with
proper management.”

The Mexican fisherman asked, “But, sefior, how long will all this take?” To which the American replied, “15-20 years. 25 tops.” “But what then, sefior?” The American laughed and said, “That’s the best part. When the time is right, you would announce an IPO and sell your company stock to the public and become very rich. You would make millions.” “Millions, senor? Then what?” “Then you would retire and move to a small coastal fishing village, where you would sleep late, fish a little, play with your kids, take a siesta with your wife, and stroll to the village in the evenings where you could sip wine and play your guitar with your amigos …”

Why We are Dying?

Yesterday, I had a long call with Abhinav. He learnt ” how to unlock Nokia Mobile (Business Phone Series) and how to dial my number?”. So he wants to practice it and hence he called me thrice yesterday. During his conversation, he told me many things. Few of them are really itchy points and he trapped me.

1. This is Question type and i did not reply him anything, because i don’t have Childish answer. Why we are getting aged and dying?

2. I am drawing Chota Bheem Tattoo on Abhinav in his dream. My interpretation for this , How he learnt ” What Dream Means? how he is able to digest ” difference between dreams and Reality at the age of 4?

How to Watch Movie in Multiplex almost Free?

Please dont mistake me for such a post.
People tend to watch Good movies in Multiplex for Good ambient, Great screen Clarity and Live sound System. Of course it comes with hole in wallet.
Chennai Multiplex has following mandatory conditions to adhere. Many peoples might be know this.

1. you can walk into any multiplex and buy a movie ticket for Rs 10. These are for seats in the first three rows.
2. For any other ticket, the price ceiling is Rs 120, and hold your breath, it remains the same even on weekends. (Fat Pay cheque guys can book online and pay addl Convenience charge of Rs 30 Per ticket)

I watched Amazing Spider Man – 2(3D) Movie at the cost of Rs.10 last saturday. How?
1. Went to Inox @ chandra Mall, Virugambakkam by Scooter
2. Parked at Indian Overseas Bank which has closed parking during banking hours ( Free). Just opposite to Multiplex.
3. Bought Rs 10 Ticket ( since movie released 10 days before, 80% of capacity is non occupied at all). so seating is very random, not index based. ( Ticket counter persons force you to buy Combos for Rs 10 ticket. but simply ignore it)
4. Enjoyed the movie with Sooper 3D effect.

If you have Patience to delay your Favorite Movie or Kill you lonely time in good ambient, you can proceed like above. it happened accidentally during Gravity movie, But i made this incidentally for Spider Man 2 movie.

PS: it is applicable only in Chennai. Bangalore does not have ceiling on Movie ticket price, sometime you need to pay Rs 400 per ticket for weekends.
