LEAVE A BIT OF NOTHING

I have, old readers (not meaning those born while Nehru and Gandhi were still wetting their knickers) will agree, a lack of the rant mentality. I have never used this blog to lambast those responsible for reducing my life to that of an ordinary mortal who is depraved deprived of BMWs, Swedish models providing mouth-to-various resuscitation when one is bored to death, or of the need to travel thousands of miles merely to deposit some money in a bank located in the Cayman Islands. I have nothing against them. After all, judging by the likes of Brothers Lehmann, I have a job, at least.
In fact, it is the struggle for daily sexistence that has led me to forget where I was going with this intro. I wrote that a full three days back, and I could well delete it, but then I would have to start all over again. As I was saying, I have totally forgotten about what I was going to say, but am carrying on so that you can get a piece of history free of cost. What history, you ask? Well, if people continue the blogorrhea of prose and distribute awards to fellow bloggers at the current rate, the internet will explode like a Delhi firecracker dropped by young men on motorbikes.
Therefore, this post will have made its place in history in having played a crucial role in the demise of the internet.
The point of this pointless post is that, starting last week, I have been on leave. I will shortly leave to conduct an international comparative study. The secret study consists of measuring the chests and waists of female population between the ages of eighteen and twenty-eight at various stages of breathing during various recreational activities. The venue will be in a country where blue oceans and wild/tamed jungles will provide the perfect backdrop for the study. The study will lead to newer developments in the undergarment-manufacturing industry, and I will have played a small role in keeping medical science more au courant with the modern fashion-obsessed world. Look at the Americans, they keep talking of who wore what (especially Hillary Clinton), and closer home, our Home Minister, whose quotable coats were faintly tinged with distant blood.

Ladies and gents, not to put it too finely, I will be away for three weeks or so, during which period I shall feebly try to post, and also to visit your highly awarded blogs. If you miss me, know that I do, too.

  1. Have a great time Doc. You should try to share the results of the Chest and Waist examination in the form of Visual representation here. (No, not x-rays! and definitely not sketches).

  2. Three weeks!!!! Doc! You are my only moral compass in a wasteland of temptations. How can you leave for three weeks? Think how far I will drift from the straight and narrow in three weeks without you, my moral compass!

    By the way, have a great time!

  3. Doc, as envious as your 3 week sabbatical sounds, am sure most of your readers are secretly thrilled you have the opportunity most don’t, and are waiting for a well-informed you to come back and share such knowledge, with minimum inhibition and much expression!

    Either way, you sure will be missed! πŸ™‚

  4. DB:
    Thanks. I wish I could share my experiences with you, but regulations could be a problem.
    Paul:
    You have already faltered, straying leftward from the straight path. Don’t worry, I will fix you up soon. Your moral compass will not fail you.
    Rads:
    Thanks!

  5. Check out this link when u r back
    http://notytony.blogspot.com/2008/09/blogal-warming.html

    It shows the true picture of blogosphere nowadays πŸ˜€

    Come back soon to read my highly awarded blog…I have made a new page on my blog for the awards!!! πŸ˜›

  6. Have a great research project. May your sample be ample.

  7. May you be blessed with ‘big’ research topics. I will be gone by the time you are back, so lets wish each other Happy Journeys πŸ™‚ See you soon doc

  8. Reema:
    That was one good post. Thanks.
    Naren:
    Great comment! LOL!!
    Priyank:
    Sure. Take care…

  9. Have a nice time Rambodoc. Your readers will sure miss you and your twisted words. Wild jungles and blue oceans are nearly as risky and addictive as the concrete jungles , be careful.

  10. hmmm… hope you enjoy your work of mesurements!! πŸ˜›

  11. Hmm, are you going to hawaii I wonder. Well, I don’t know if there are jungles in Hawaii, but there is certainly the deep blue sea. Three weeks sounds good doc and you deserve this holiday. Have fun.

  12. There ought to be a law against people like you taking a 3 week break from blogging – daaktari can take the absence.
    have a great holiday doc .

  13. Prerna, Sakhi, Nita and Usha:
    Thanks. I am taking my laptop with me, hoping to access the WiFi networks somewhere.
    I hope I can make you happy with some nice pics later on.
    And, Usha, there ought to be a law first giving people like me minimal wages that would allow the lowest acceptable lifestyle in inflation-hit, week-rupeed India.
    Nita: Not Hawaii, but some place as nice (hopefully), like South Africa.

  14. R-Doc, are you disappointed by what’s happening in the US, and hence, taking a break to lift your spirits up – by being in the midst of nature (oceans and jungles)? πŸ˜‰

    Don’t forget to pack your mosquito net!! πŸ˜€

  15. Enjoy yourself doc!! I’m awaiting the results of your brilliant research! πŸ˜€

  16. Amit:
    I am losing money in India, thanks to the antics in the US. It is an amazing experience to see socialistic moves by a Republican Party Government.
    Nikhil:
    Yup. You will get it.

  17. R-doc, socialism or crony capitalism? πŸ™‚
    Firms on WS do donate tons of money to both Dem and Rep leaders during their (re)election campaigns. So, quid pro quo is part of what’s happening here, as well as supposedly, the cost of doing nothing will be disastrous for the US economy.

  18. Amit:
    Whatever it is, it s certainly not free market economics, though that is the straw man that is being shot at.

  19. Woah
    I was also thinking Africa
    Hope u enjoy urself while doing pathbreaking research ….
    Who ever wants dollars and euros are really screwed and it is not all USAs folly
    Our govt has a lot of off budget expenses like oil bonds. Our Fm has already spent a lot on subsidies and loan waiver and funded it by bond issuance such that they have issued 80% of annual targets and its just Oct 1
