Dear God…

December 17, 2007

Today was Star Budday. Ergo, mother wanted to go to a temple far from the city again. Slept awfully late last night, so was pretty zomboid this morning and didn’t ask where we were going until half-way into ECR. Which turned out to be Nithya Kalyana Perumal Kovil. Coolly Paati proceeds to explain to me how the main deity of the temple has a legacy of getting married everyday. AND how people who want to get married come there to pray and it works.

Me: Out with it! Did you guys plan something behind my back?! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
Everybody in unison: No! ๐Ÿ˜€
Me: *mutter darkly*

Anyhoo, it’s a really nice drive upto the temple and as soon as you enter the vicinity, there’s an amazing kolam, with steps leading into it and all that. ๐Ÿ™‚ Curious thing about the temple is that you see a lot of young and umm, not-so-young men and women meandering about wearing garlands. Funda is, the people who pray to get married wear garlands whereby the other garlanded people know where to look for prospective wives/husbands. Ultra-funny. People actually drape themselves in pattu veshti and pattu podavais and come.

So we went to do the star budday archanai and at the end of it, the priest comes and hands me a garland. I stare at him. And stare some more. He looks faintly amused. My dad frantically starts whispering to me to take it. I turn and stare. My hand is then forced forward and made to grasp the garland while the priest forms the firm impression that I’m retarded. ๐Ÿ˜ So anyway, after the whole are-you-trying-to-get-me-married-without-my-knowing scenario got sorted out, I was given to understand that the garland was a prasadam that EVERYONE gets, but only some wear. ๐Ÿ˜›

Very amusing day. Gapp, of course, has a totally mangled and unrecognizable version here, if you care to read it. I’ll also add that he’s an exaggeration mannangati, an insufferable moron and a useless twit.

    You went to the NKP temple. The temple is in ECR. You got the yellow garland. The temple is a marriage portal. Now which part has been crudely manipulated, such that you are unable to recognize my version?

    Bablu style – how can you say that word? What is the word? What is the word? exaggeration mannangati… Na summara report panune nu sonna na othukuren. Anna nee. How can you say that word? Na report aey panaley nu sonna epidi… how can you say that word? ๐Ÿ˜›

    @Karthik:
    So you just loved the Ganesh trashing part and nothing else? You don’t love that haunting photoshoped face that you keep dreaming about everyday?
