how important is it?

hmm...well..didnt know i would write this as a post..but then newaz decided to pen it down...well this post is a more of a question to all the ladies out there..

"how important is it to u that the guy be clean shaven??"...

i mean i m a sikh...i have a moustache n a beard(neatly trimmed)....n i have had situations where girls have asked me..y dont u become a cut surd...n shave it all of n all?..n these have been posed by women with whom i have flirted n almost been in relationships with...

for me..i have always stuck to the fact tht i wont loose my identity of being a sikh..what so ever the girl says..but is it tht difficult for the girl to accept a guy for who he is n what he supports on his face..n i have heard the stupidest reasons girls give for asking that from a guy??

i dont knw if this happens internationally or not..but this sure does happen in India.... i ll add this line to the post...girls.."what if u were to be asked out by a sikh??would this fact come into picture then??"

so how abt some answers...comon girls...women...ladies..honesty please??

funny incidents at my institute

ystrdy i was sitting and gossiping with my frnds in the night and all of a sudden the talk shifted to some funny incidents tht had happened here at my institute...just to share a few ....

1) This is a conversation between 2 professors at my insitute...the campus here is surrounded by alot of greenery and open we have snakes..frogs..and scorpions giving us company many a this is what happened...

Prof X goes to the bathroom and finds a scorpion there....scared like hell...he goes out..and picks up his phone and calls up Prof Y, the next door neighboor...

Prof X: (visibly scared and stammering)..."Prof Y...there's a scorpio in the bathroom..there's a scorpio in the bathroom.

(well Scorpio is an SUV, 4x4 vehicle in India )...

So Prof Y: (inadvertantly)..."How did u manage to park it there"....

I dunno if u found it funny..but for us it was hellishly hilarious...

2) This happened in a Retailing Mgmt course here....just a background..South Indians pronounce mall as maal...and maal in hindi means goods...(or rather in guy lingo it chick)...

So the Retailing prof is taking a lecture in the class and says..

"In north India there are a lot of good maals.."....

now me n a bunch of other north indian guyz sitting at the last row of the class..start laughing like anything..for its maal as in the maal we interpret it as....n sir has no he asks.."Share the joke with the me too...let me know what u were laughing abt.."...n we started laughin even more then he says.."In north India, maal means goods.."...n we again erupted in laughter....and we were like .."yes sir, definitely goods...very good goods"....

dont knw if u guyz liked it or not..but for us, this is what makes life fun here :)

n heres a pic of the amazing and mighty Himalayas

Time for Laughs

Well have seen alot of weird, dull n sad stuff on blogs with questions abt life on this...that....what not n blah blah blah......

so here are a few jokes to liven up the mood...

First one:

A young guy, whose travelling along the British countryside face a problem when his car breaks down on the highway with no civilization in sight other than farms and some animals here n there...

Faraway in the distance he sees a he walks up to it..n finds a cottage there..he knocks on the door and an old man opens it....

The young man says " Sir ,my cars broken down and i need a place to spend the night..can u help me"...

The old man (being a considerate guy) says "i have 2 is babys room and the other is the bathroom..u can take one .n i ll sleep outside as i m used to the conditions...."

The young man thinks for a while on which room to take(so that he doesnt get disturbed by howling babies)..he says " i ll take the bathroom" and then he goes n sleeps there...

In the morning a beautiful chick wakes him up...he rubs his eyes hard, stunned.. he asks..who are u..
The girl replies.." I am Baby"...and then she asks " who are you"...

the guy replies "i am a stupid fool"

Second one:

First Guy: Do you know why cowgirls have bowshaped legs????

Second Guy: thinks.....

Dumbfounded he says " No clue...tell me"

Last yr a very good frnd of ours had passed away due to the injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident on this very day...the emptiness he has left behind will always exist..the void remains..but more for his parents than anyone else...they lost their only son...

today all of us lit a candle in his memory as the first thing in the morning...

in his memory we named the cricket tournament after him....i hope from up there hes watching and hes happy...he was a part of my football team..n one of the best players...this yr we won the tournament and the win is dedicated to him...

after that we headed of to this place called Mathar Bridge...this is an amazing bridge..its a walkway..with a water canal sort of a thing running pretty tall...n the view from the bridge is amazing..lush green surroundings everywhere...beautiful mountains on the back..n green coconut n banana plantations in the front :)...went down to the small river flowing there and all of us posed for some nice snaps...

we had lunch after tht and then went to a place called Muttom Beach near Nagarcoil...this was one of the best beaches i ve crowd...just the sand..sea n a few rocks...amazing place to watch a sunrise or a sunset...and pretty romantic...climbed a few rocks...saw crabs roamin arnd...posed for a few pics...and heard the sea roar as the night looked so beautiful at the twilight time...just fantastic...
