Johnny Gone Down - Karan Bajaj





    Johnny Gone Down

                                      by

               Karan Bajaj








For those who love to read fiction, but mind it, I am not talking about fairy tale lovers, would definitely love to read it. Beautifully crafted and stitched with real world happenings, Karan has done a fantastic job.

Its story of life of Nikhil, an MIT graduate. How life turns upside down for him as he plans his vacation to Cambodia with his friend Sam. How he manages to escape from there the Khmer Rogue, peaceful monk life at the monastery, uncertain life as a Brazillian drug lord, to a multi-millionaire software developer and then back to what we consider a normal life. And certainly love does not misses to touch his life. A thoroughly complete journey of adventure, excitement, hope, love, fear, friendship and every other emotion you can think of, has been poured in. Interestingly the book manages to keep you glued to it from the first to last page.

At the end of the book, it might seem a little bit of unrealistic life one can have who has the best out of the worst fate in this universe, but none the less, reading it is very much enjoyable. Recommended.

The Story of Appreciation


One young academically excellent person went to apply for a managerial position in a big company. He passed the first interview, the director did the last interview, made the last decision. The director discovered from the CV that the youth's academical achievements were excellent all the way, from the secondary school until the postgraduate research, never had a year when he did not score. The director asked, "Did you obtain any scholarships in school?" the youth answered "none". The director asked, " Was it your father who paid for your school fees?"The youth answered, "My father passed away when I was one year old, it was my mother who paid for my school fees. The director asked, " Where did your mother work?" The youth answered, "My mother worked as clothes cleaner. The director requested the youth to show his hands. The youth showed a pair of hands that were smooth and perfect. The director asked, " Have you ever helped your mother wash the clothes before?" The youth answered, "Never, my mother always wanted me to study and read more books. Furthermore, my mother can wash clothes faster than me. The director said, "I have a request. When you go back today, go and clean your mother's hands, and then see me tomorrow morning.

The youth felt that his chance of landing the job was high. When he went back, he happily requested his mother to let him clean her hands. His mother felt strange, happy but with mixed feelings, she showed her hands to the kid. The youth cleaned his mother's hands slowly. His tear fell as he did that. It was the first time he noticed that his mother's hands were so wrinkled, and there were so many bruises in her hands. Some bruises were so painful that his mother shivered when they were cleaned with water. This was the first time the youth realized that it was these pair of hands that washed the clothes everyday to enable him to pay the school fee. The bruises in the mother's hands were the price that the mother had to pay for his graduation, academic excellence and his future. After finishing the cleaning of his mother hands, the youth quietly washed all the remaining clothes for his mother. That night, mother and son talked for a very long time.

Next morning, the youth went to the director's office. The Director noticed the tears in the youth's eyes, asked: " Can you tell me what have you done and learned yesterday in your house?" The youth answered, " I cleaned my mother's hand, and also finished cleaning all the remaining clothes' The Director asked, " please tell me your feelings." The youth said, Number 1, I know now what is appreciation. Without my mother, there would not the successful me today. Number 2, by working together and helping my mother, only I now realize how difficult and tough it is to get something done. Number 3, I have come to appreciate the importance and value of family relationship. The director said, " This is what I am looking for to be my manager. I want to recruit a person who can appreciate the help of others, a person who knows the sufferings of others to get things done, and a person who would not put money as his only goal in life. You are hired. Later on, this young person worked very hard, and received the respect of his subordinates. Every employee worked diligently and as a team. The company's performance improved tremendously.

A child, who has been protected and habitually given whatever he wanted,would develop "entitlement mentality" and would always put himself first.He would be ignorant of his parent's efforts. When he starts work, he assumes that every person must listen to him, and when he becomes a manager, he would never know the sufferings of his employees and would always blame others. For this kind of people, who may be good academically, may be successful for a while, but eventually would not feel sense of achievement. He will grumble and be full of hatred and fight for more.

If we are this kind of protective parents, are we really showing love or are we destroying the kid instead? You can let your kid live in a big house, eat a good meal, learn piano, watch a big screen TV. But when you are cutting grass, please let them experience it. After a meal, let them wash their plates and bowls together with their brothers and sisters. It is not because you do not have money to hire a maid, but it is because you want to love them in a right way. You want them to understand, no matter how rich their parents are, one day their hair will grow gray, same as the mother of that young person. The most important thing is your kid learns how to appreciate the effort and experience the difficulty and learns the ability to work with others to get things done.

Life




Everybody wants happiness
Nobody wants pain

But you can't have a rainbow
Without little rain

The lonely walker


I wander through the loose mornings
so different from those spent together
which had so much of our absurd chats

I drift through the aimless afternoons
so different from those spent together
which had so much of our savoured lunches

I walk through the solitary evening
so differnet from those spent together
which had so much of chit-chat coffee breaks

I tramp through the lonely dusks
so different from those spent together
which had so much fun driving together

I roam through the empty pre-nights
so different from those spent together
which had so much of our naughtiness

I stroll through the sleepless nights
so different from those spent together
which had so much of our togetherness

I maunder through the dreamy dawns
so different from those spent together
which had so much of our shared dreams

And I wish I could turn back the time
again and again to relive those moments

दिवाना



I wonder if you'll look into my eyes; ever
And still find the love that prevailed between us

My eyes still lust for one look of yours
My hands rise in vain to touch you again
My lips long for the moisture of your kisses
My soul lurks for yours

Nothing more that I wish for
And you are nowhere around to love me; ever


दिवाना हँसता है तो हँसने दे यार
बेचारा तन्हाई में बैठ कर रोया बहुत है


Just wanted to add the last two irrelevant lines for me; and for you.

Ripples - Short Stories by Indian Women Writers



Upon suggestion by my blogger and Facebook friend Mrs. Tikulli Dogra, I bought myself a copy of Ripples - Short Stories by Indian Woman Writers. Thanks to Mr. Prashant Karhade for the strong yet beautiful foreword in the book. It arises interest even before one starts reading the book.

The book is a collection of 48 short stories by 26 very talented women writers. Every story delightfully narrates various forms of human emotion. While reading, every time you reach the end of the story, you'll either of the two expression - you'll be amused and say "beautiful", or rather you might be shocked and say "what the hell !!". Every story unveils a new dimension of the human emotion. Personally, I was touched by each content. Though every story stand far apart from each other, they are complete in themselves and are able to bring out the best. Every story has been so beautifully crafted that you could almost picture them being played in front of your eyes. Though I am not a very keen reader of fiction, but this book does deserves special place in my bookshelf, pretty sure that I would read it time and again and it would amuse me like it did for this first time.

And last but not least, I will say this book is definitely worth reading. Do get yourself a copy of Ripples - Short Stories by Indian Woman Writers, today.


Cheers !!

The vague efforts...




I'm trying hard
really
not to cry over you
because
every tear is just one more reminder
that
I don't know how to let you
GO

Your worth


The harder I am trying to be without you
Tougher it is getting to be without you
Because its only you who completes me

The confession


The worst part
of our separation
isn't that 
with each passing day
I feel like I need you more
but the fact
that
you don't need me at all

Son of a bitch



Little Johnny was doing his math homework. He said to himself, "Two plus five, that son of a bitch is seven. Three plus six, that son of a bitch is nine."

His mother heard what he was saying and gasped, "What are you doing?"

The little boy answered, "I'm doing my math homework."

" And this is how your teacher taught you to do it?" the mother asked. "Yes," he answered.

Infuriated, she called Little Johnny's teacher the next day, "What are you teaching my son in class?"

The teacher replied, "Right now, we are learning addition." The mother asked, "And are you teaching them to say two plus two, that son of a bitch is four?"

After the teacher stopped laughing, she answered, "What I taught them was, two plus two,the sum of which is four."

Little Johnny's salesmanship



The kids filed back into class Monday morning. They were very excited. Their weekend assignment was to sell something, then give a talk on productive salesmanship.

Little Sally led off: "I sold girl scout cookies and I made $30," she said proudly, "My sales approach was to appeal to the customer's civil spirit and I credit that approach for my obvious success."

"Very good," said the teacher.

Little Jenny was next: "I sold magazines," she said, "I made $45 and I explained to everyone that magazines would keep them up oncurrent events."

"Very good, Jenny," said the teacher.

Eventually, it was Little Johnny's turn. The teacher held her breath.

Little Johnny walked to the front of the classroom and dumped a box full of cash on the teacher's desk. "$2,467," he said.

"$2,467!" cried the teacher, "What in the world were you selling?"

"Toothbrushes," said Little Johnny.

"Toothbrushes," echoed the teacher, "How could you possibly sell enough tooth brushes to make that much money?"

"I found the busiest corner in town," said Little Johnny, "I set up a Dip & Chip stand. I gave everybody who walked by a sample. They all said the same thing, "Hey, this tastes like shit!"

Then I would say, "It is shit. Wanna buy a toothbrush?"

The Broken Bridge



I stand this side,
You stand the other side
Between us 
Lies this broken bridge...

Thursday, October 7, 2010

Come back....



Will ya come back, ever again ?
Coz I want to you look back,
I am standing over there, where ya left me
Waiting to hear from you, once again..

Oh !! please come back for I can't stand anymore
hold my hand n hold me over, or else
the world shall push me n I'll be lost somewhere
you'll not be able to find me again, ever

Hurt again...


The dreams that once twinkled my eyes
now hurt more than just anything...

The songs that once amused my heart
now hurt more than just anything...

The moments that once sparkled my life
now hurt more than just anything...

The person that once enlightened my soul
now hurts more than just anything...

Little Johnny's






One day, Little Johnny's teacher, Miss Figpot asked the class if they could name some things you can suck!"

"Ice cream, ma'am!" Little Mary answered.

"Good, Mary." Miss Figpot said, "Anyone else?"

"How about a lollipop!" said Steven.

"Very good, now it's your turn Johnny!", the teacher said.

Little Johnny, sitting at back then answered, "A lamp!".

The teacher and all of the students wondered about his answer. The teacher asked him, "Johnny, why do you think one can suck a lamp?"

"Last night when I passed my parents room", Little Johnny answered, "I heard my mom say, turn off the lamp, honey and let me suck it."

Legal & Logical




After having failed his exam in Logistics and Organization, the student goes and confronts his lecturer about it.

Student: "Sir, do you really understand anything about the subject ?"

Professor: "Surely I must. Otherwise I would not be a professor!"

Student: "Great, well then I would like to ask you a question. If you can give me the correct answer, I will accept my mark as is and go. If you however do not know the answer, I want you give me an 'A' for the exam. "

Professor: "Okay, it's a deal. So what is the question ?"

Student: "What is legal but not logical, logical but not legal, and neither logical nor legal ?"

Even after some long and hard consideration, the professor could not give the student any answer, and therefore changes his exam mark into an 'A', as agreed.

Afterwards, the professor calls on his best student and asks him the same question.

He immediately answers: "Sir, you are 63 years old and married to a 35 year old woman, which is legal, but not logical. Your wife has a 25 year old lover, which is logical, but not legal. The fact that you have given your wife's lover an "A", although he really should have failed, is neither legal, nor logical ."

The secret of successful marriage



Once upon a time a married couple celebrated their 50th marriage anniversary. They had become famous in the city for not having a single conflict in their period of 25 years. Local newspaper editors had gathered at the occasion to find out the secret of their well known "happy going marriage".

Editor: " Sir. It's amazingly unbelievable. How did you make this possible?"

Husband recalling his old honeymoon days said: "We had been to Shimla for honeymoon after marriage. Having selected the horse riding finally, we both started the ride on different horses. My horse was pretty okay but the horse on which my wife was riding seemed to be a crazy one."

On the way ahead, that horse jumped suddenly, making my wife topple over.

Recovering her position from the ground, she patted the horse's back and said: "This is your first time". She again climbed the horse and continued with the ride. After a while, it happened again. This time she again kept calm and said: "This is your second time" and continued. When the horse dropped her third time, she silently took out the revolver from the purse and shot the horse dead !!

I shouted at my wife: "What did you do you psycho. You killed the poor animal. Are you crazy?"

She gave a silent look and said: "This is your first time!!!".

Husband: "That's it. We are happy ever after. "

Governance System




As a daily habit Pintu was reading newspaper.

Suddenly he asked his father, "Dad! What does it mean by Governance System? "

"It's like..." father said while thinking, "See! I earn and bring money to home, mean's I am a 'Money Holder'. Your mother decides where and how to spend that money and that means she is 'Government'. That maid in our home is doing all the household works, so she will be 'Labour Class'. You are a 'Common man' or 'Public'. Your kid brother is 'Future' or the 'Next Generation', understand?".

That day Pintu slept with all those thoughts. In the middle of the night he woke-up because his kid brother was crying. He wetted the matrices so he was crying. Pintu went to woke-up his mother. She was in deep sleep so Pintu went to the Maiden's room to wake her up. But there his father was sleeping with the maid. So he came back with frustration.

Next morning father asked Pintu, "Hey Pintu Darling! You understood the Governance System'? ".

Pintu replied, "Yeah Dad, I understood! When Money Holder is exploiting Labour Class, our Government is sleeping. Future of our nation is crying for not getting their basic needs fulfilled and in all this Common Man is suffering!"

Am I with Right Partner ?




During a seminar, a woman asked, "How do I know if I am with the right person?" The author then noticed that there was a large man sitting next to her so he said, "It depends. Is that your partner?" In all seriousness, she answered "How do you know?" Let me answer this question because the chances are good that it's weighing on your mind replied the author. Here's the answer.

Every relationship has a cycle. In the beginning, you fall in love with your partner. You anticipate their calls, want their touch, and like their idiosyncrasies. Falling in love wasn't hard. In fact, it was a completely natural and spontaneous experience. You didn't have to do anything. That's why it's called "falling" in love.

People in love sometimes say, "I was swept of my feet." Picture the expression. It implies that you were just standing there; doing nothing, and then something happened TO YOU. Falling in love is a passive and spontaneous experience. But after a few months or years of being together, the euphoria of love fades. It's a natural cycle of EVERY relationship. Slowly but surely, phone calls become a bother (if they come at all), touch is not always welcome (when it happens), and your spouse's idiosyncrasies, instead of being cute, drive you nuts. The symptoms of this stage vary with every relationship; you will notice a dramatic difference between the initial stage when you were in love and a much duller or even angry subsequent stage. At this point, you and/or your partner might start asking, "Am I with the right person?" And as you reflect on the euphoria of the love you once had, you may begin to desire that experience with someone else. This is when relationships breakdown.

The key to succeeding in a relationship is not finding the right person; it's learning to love the person you found.

People blame their partners for their unhappiness and look outside for fulfilment. Extramarital fulfilment comes in all shapes and sizes. Infidelity is the most common. But sometimes people turn to work, a hobby, a friendship, excessive TV, or abusive substances. But the answer to this dilemma does NOT lie outside your relationship. It lies within it. I'm not saying that you couldn't fall in love with someone else. You could. And TEMPORARILY you'd feel better. But you'd be in the same situation a few years later. Because (listen carefully to this): The key to succeeding in a relationship is not finding the right person; it's learning to love the person you found.


SUSTAINING love is not a passive or spontaneous experience. You have to work on it day in and day out. It takes time, effort, and energy. And most importantly, it demands WISDOM. You have to know WHAT TO DO to make it work. Make no mistake about it. Love is NOT a mystery. There are specific things you can do (with or without your partner). Just as there are physical laws of the universe (such as gravity), there are also laws for relationships. If you know and apply these laws, the results are predictable. Love is therefore a "decision". Not just a feeling.

Remember this always:

God determines who walks into your life.

It is up to you to decide who you let walk away, who you let stay,and who you refuse to let GO!!!

Wordless Wednesday - 1

How fight started


One year, a husband decided to buy his mother-in-law a cemetery plot as a Christmas gift. The next year, he didn't buy her a gift. When she asked him why, he replied, "Well, you still haven't used the gift I bought you last year!"


And that's how the fight started...





I asked my wife, "Where do you want to go for our anniversary?" It warmed my heart to see her face melt in sweet appreciation. 'Somewhere I haven't been in a long time!' she said. So I suggested, 'How about the kitchen?'

And that's how the fight started...





I tried to talk my wife into buying a case of Haywards 5000 for $14.95. Instead, she bought a jar of cold cream for $7.95. I told her the beer would make her look better at night than the cold cream.

And that's how the fight started...






I took my wife to a restaurant. The waiter, for some reason, took my order first - "I'll have the strip steak, medium rare, please." He said, "Aren't you worried about the mad cow?" "Nah, she can order for herself."

And that's how the fight started...






My wife sat down on the couch next to me as I was flipping the channels. She asked, "What's on TV?" I said, "Dust."

And that's how the fight started...






My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary. She said, "I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 200 in about 3 seconds." I bought her a scale.

And that's how the fight started...







My wife and I were sitting at a table at her high school reunion, and she kept staring at a drunken man swigging his drink as he sat alone at a nearby table.
I asked her - "Do you know him?'' Yes, she sighed, "He's my old boyfriend. I understand he took to drinking right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear he hasn't been sober since." "My God!" I said, "who would think a person could go on celebrating that long?"

And that's how the fight started...






I rear-ended a car this morning. So, there we were alongside the road and slowly the other driver got out of his car.. You know how sometimes you just get so stressed and little things just seem funny? Yeah, well I couldn't believe it... he was a DWARF!!! He stormed over to my car, looked up at me, and shouted, 'I AM NOT
HAPPY!' So, I looked down at him and said, 'Well, then which one are you?'


And that's how the fight started...


THE ULTIMATE ONE ( I bet you can't stop laughing after reading this one )


THE BROKEN LAWN MOWER

When our lawn mower broke and wouldn't run, my wife kept hinting to me that I  should get it fixed. But, somehow I always had something else to take care of first, the truck, the car, playing golf, Always something more important to me. Finally she thought of a clever way to make her point. When I arrived home one day, I found her seated in the tall grass, busily snipping away with a tiny pair of sewing scissors. I watched silently for a short time and then went into the house. I was gone only a minute, and when I came out again I handed her a toothbrush. I said, 'When you finish cutting the grass, you might as well sweep the driveway.'

The doctors say I will walk again, but I will always have a limp.

ज़िन्दगी




ये ज़िन्दगी रेत की तरह होती है
जब तक इसे खुले हाथों में रक्खो तब तक ये तुम्हारी है
पर अगर इसे मुट्ठी में बंद करना चाहो
तो ये उँगलियों के बीच से फिसल जाती है 
यही ज़िन्दगी है

Office behavior

Below mentioned are few tips on how to behave in office to appear as a very good employee.




Never walk without a document in your hand - People with documents in their hand look like hardworking employee heading for important meeting. While people with nothing in their hand look like they are heading for the cafeteria. People with newspaper in their hand look like they are heading for loo.  And above all make sure that you carry loads of stuff home with you at night, thus generating the false impression that you work longer hours than you do.





Use computers to look busy - Any time you use computer, it looks like work to the casual observer. You can send and receive personal emails, chat and generally have a blast without doing anything remotely related to work.  These aren't exactly the societal benefits that the proponents of the computer revolution would like to talk about but they are not bad either. When you get caught by your boss - and you will get caught - your best defense is to claim that you were trying to learn new software, thus saving the valuable training expenses.






Messy desk - Top management can get away with clean desk. For the rest of us, it looks like we are not working hard enough. Build huge piles of documents around your workspace. To the observer, last year's work looks the same as today's work; its the volume that counts. Pile them wide and high. If you know somebody is coming to your desk, bury the document you will need halfway down in an existing stack and rummage for it when he/she arrives.





Voice mail - Never answer you phone if you have a voice mail. People don't call you just because they want to give you something for nothing - they call because they want you to work for them. That's no way to live.  Screen all your calls through voice mail. If somebody leaves a voice mail message for you and it sounds like impending work, respond during lunch hour when you know they are not there - it looks like you are hard working and conscientious even though you're being a devious weasel.




Look annoyed and impatient - Always try to look impatient and annoyed to give your bosses and colleagues the impression that you are always busy with some important projects.





Leave the office late - Always leave the office late, especially when the boss is still around. You could read magazines and story books that you always wanted to read, but had no time until late before leaving. Make sure you walk past the boss's room on your way out. Send important emails at unearthly hours and during public holidays.


Creative sighing for effect - Sigh loudly when there are  many people around, giving the impression that you are under extreme pressure.






Stacking strategy - It is not enough to pile lots of documents on the table. Put lots of books on the floor etc(thick computer manuals are good option).












Build vocabulary - Read up on some computer magazines and pick out all the jargons and new products. Use the phrases  freely when in  conversations with your boss. Remember, they not necessarily have to understand all that you say but you must sound impressive.







Have 2 jackets - If you work  in a big open plan office, always leave  a spare jacket draped over the back of your chair. This gives the impression that you are still in the premises. The second jacket should be worn while swanning around elsewhere.


















Last and the most important - Never let your boss let know of any of the above tricks.










Hope you enjoyed reading all this. But seriously speaking, don't follow this or you'll end up in a big mess. Because before you read this, your boss already has, so.

Awesome Rishikesh




These are the pics for my Rishikesh trip with my friends. A superb place to chill out. A must visit for every one who loves adventure, specially rafting, rock climbing etc.
White sand beaches, cool breeze, bone-chilling water, natural beauty, lovely mountains, lots of greenery; whoa. I loved the place and is worth recommendation.









A very calm place away from the concrete jungle. Relaxing and soothing. Camping is the only way of available for shelter.







 Weather is usually pleasant at day time and cool in nights. The serene beauty of the location is amazingly spell-bounding. Time just comes to a stand still at this place.

You are in love




"Love" is one word of which everybody is very very familiar. But do people actually understand before jumping on the conclusion that they are in love ? I am sure love is often misunderstood for attraction, infatuation, obsession,  fascination etc. And I do agree that these are the first steps toward being in love, the initial steps. But if you are on the right path( highly dependent on your fate ), these misunderstanding gets converted to the most awaited, irresistible emotion, LOVE.

So here I mention a few points which may indicate that the person you have found is in love with you as much as you are in love with him/her.
  1. You are absolutely comfortable with each other and feel you have known each other since long, even if your courtship period is small one.
  2. You generally agree to each other.
  3. You treat each other with equality and the fact never arises that who has compromised more.
  4. You get involved with each other in every big or small activities, even of daily life.
  5. You go around kidding with each other, adding happiness and friendliness to the bonding.
  6. You two give each other special treatment, more attention, mutual appreciations, acceptances, admiration and playfulness. This keeps the romance warm and alive.
  7. You enjoy spending more time together in homely environment to feel 'at home' with each other.
  8. You don't pretend and just be yourself. Similarly you let your partner be what he/she is. The expression of feelings is true and open.
  9. There is a shared feeling of mutual growth and support. You both give each other space for inter-personal and individual growth.
  10. You are able to work out with your problem with ease and objective approach.
  11. You are flexible, compassionate, gracious and expect best from your partner.
  12. Forgiving is not tough when things go out of way, and trusting each other keeps you closer.
  13. You are protective(not obsessive or controlling) towards each other and like to keep your romantic lives in privacy.
  14. Commitment and dedication exists to ensure that feeling of separation never creeps in between(luck plays a huge role here, believe me or not; I know because ....  ah ! don't bother me)
  15. The sexual chemistry is apparent and tangible as well.
  16. Expressing yourselves emotionally and sexually comes naturally and without inhibitions. Feeling secure with one another puts you in the “mood" for intimacy and strengthens your affections for one another.

Here's wishing a very happy friendship day to all my friends.

Even if you are not reading this I wish you a very happy friendship day. Cheers to you all
for making my life so beautiful. You have been with me in my good and my bad times. You have always stood by me even when I didn't wanted anybody around. You have listened to my silences and my weirdest rants.

You have accepted me the way I was and the way I am. I know I have changed over time, but you all never did. You have never complainted, just about anything what I said and not, what I thought and not, what I did and not and anything. You have never let me down on hope.

And I know I can always count on you all in the worst times of my life. I would need you, all my life long.

A warm hug and a huge thanks to you all.

I Love you.



Just wanted to add these lines for my friends

   मेरी जीत तेरी जीत तेरी हार मेरी हार सुन ऐ मेरे यार '
जान पर भी खेलेंगे तेरे लिए ले लेंगे सबसे दुश्मनी
ये दोस्ती हम नहीं तोड़ेंगे ...........

The pickle pot

This is just a short fictional story based on absolutely nothing.




A guy and a girl used to live together, sharing the same flat. Everything was going fine until one day the boys' mother arrived there.

Boy(surprised): Mom!! You here ? You could have called me up.
Mom(smiling): Its ok son. Just wanted to see you so I dropped in. Thought I would surprise you.
Boy : Sure you have(long sigh).

When mom comes to know that his son is sharing the flat with a girl, she gets quite angry but says nothing. Predicting this boy speaks to his mom.

Boy: Mom don't you worry. We are just friends sharing the living place. We are not having any affair. Believe me.
Mom: Its ok son. I am not saying that you both are having any affair. But I am not liking this. You should have not done this. But I trust you.

Mom lives there for a weeks time and then goes back.
A couple of days later boy calls up his mom.

Boy: Hi mom !!
Mom: Hey, How are you ? All fine ?
Boy: I'm good mom(pause). Mom I am not trying to say that you did this intentionally but did by any chance you took the pickle pot from the kitchen with you when you left for home ? That belonged to the girl.
Mom: Son, I believed you when you said that you were just friends with the girl sharing your flat and not having any affair. But had it been that you slept in your own room on your own bed, you would have found the pickle pot right beneath your blanket.

Boy hangs up immediately.
