Still alive!

If y'al thought that activity from my side of the world was a bit low and that I was only absconding cause it was exams, then what do I say...your thinking is wrong. It was my modem that was such a pain in the Bee-High-and-uhh!

I got it exchanged after a long and hard fought battle with the authorities(long story) and also after recovering from a fever that seemed to be as bad as the one I had in 10th ("The fever of '02".... "ooooh!") I am back, and I will be backer after some time.

Last battle will be fought tomorrow. Along with the project Viva the day after.

And yes, as usual, I have screwed up all my exams yet another time, in case you were wondering if things changed a lot in between.

Meet you when I return from my very last screw up. Good luck to fellow warriors.

One fine morning, after a rainy night,
I recalled the sound, I heard, at midnight.
It was the whine of puppies, definitely puppies you see
but Plutos unleashed, I didn't know how it could be

He is one jealous dog, my best bud Plu
Any other mutt near me, he gets the Flu
how would he let any puppies in??
Yet, wonder of wonders, there was a din

I dunno about cats, but it had surely rained dogs,
which I found out before my morning jog
Two cute puppies on my door step
and nearly 7 months later, its on my blog :)

Yes. It ain't just a poem, there actually were these two cute puppies who decided to make my home theirs, all of a sudden one rainy night. Pluto, who is such a big bully with most dogs, had cuddled up with them, all warm and dry.

Before we go further, Do you know about how nature takes care of orphaned puppies? It may sound cold, but its actually a good thing. Street dogs lay their litter in dumps and drainages, and sometimes they die for many reasons after giving birth. The puppies, whose existence is unknown to the rest of the world, wait for their mommee all day, and when they get really hungry and mommy ain't home for long, they go into deep sleep. Deep sleep..deeper sleep, and finally just die. Nice and easy along with their brothers and sisters.

The first time I heard this story was when I found a similar orphaned litter way back in 9th grade and a wise old lady told me about how they will soon die. Their mum had come under a road roller. The eternal dog lover that I am, rushed all the puppies to an empty site at the back of my house and I know what you are thinking- NO! - they didn't die out of boredom just cause they were stuck with me!

One puppy from THAT litter (The litter of '99) went on to become my first Dog - Tiger :) Love you Tigs! (In heaven now). BTW, do you know those hutch ads with the master and dog they used to air? It was probably inspired by how Tiger used to follow me around the neighbourhood.

Zeeeeeeezip! Back to the present. Next 1 week I had the honourable job of making sure our new guests were alive. You know why it's something to blog about? Because 2-3 week old puppies eat half a bread each and once every hour!! (And boy do they also sleep a lot!!.)

Now that must be what they call..what was that.. uhh...ummm Responx-kabiliky !

After the first week, they started roaming around and now they sleep on the streets and almost the whole street feeds them more than any dog can eat :) Ofcourse, they do pay me a visit every now and then. Probably, livelihood is more important than life, which is why they prefer to sleep near the homes of the people who feed them day and night. We are content with taking care of Plu!

Anyway, that was one of the best ONE WEEK of my recent life. Check out why:

This is what I call Raining Cats & Dogs!

Mooning event: The Black guy really hates Shoaib Akhtar


Uhhh...Whats all that noise?

Ohhh hello. Can we sleep now?

Have guys like these, playing on your lap for a week and you will know why you need to feed that street dog in your lane 4 pieces of bread each day.
