Once upon a time, not very long ago, lived three very eligible bachelor ‘boys’ (all over 60), who were trying in vain for many years to marry a nice, 100% pure-Parsi girl, i.e. both the parents of the girl should be Parsis. But alas! Something or the other always went wrong and either the girls […]
Saal Mubarak! Cyrus (The Not So) Great!

Fate Weaves Not The Web Of Events In Man’s Life

There’s Plenty Of Octopuses In The Sea! “There are plenty of fish in the sea,” they said. “It will be fun,” they said. I tried online dating for 6 months. All I caught was a cold. And that’s the good news…. Here’s the not-so-good news…. Women are most afraid of meeting a serial killer. Men […]
Food, Beautiful Food!
There is a mistaken notion that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. This is a fallacy. A man is all stomach, especially a Parsi. It is not a via-media to anything else. His love for food has led him to plagiarize culinary marvels from all over the world. I find it […]
