Sister, look!

How much?

Five rupees.

l have just two.

Keep it.


Just two bucks in our pocket..

But the world's

under our thumb..

We care two hoots for

joy or despair..

Virtue and sin braided

in our hair..

While we frolic without a care!

Cos we are like this..

This is how we are!

Our style is Bliss..

This is who we are!

Each lane speaks of

a different God..

One invokes Allah..

The next Lord Krishna!

While blood flows

in their veins..

The Holy Ganges flows in ours.

The sun or moon without

our summon..


Can't rise or set.

l said 'hide'!

Life's wheel in the

hands of a brat!

Cos we are like this..

This is how we are.

We're almost Voguish..

This is who we are!

At the riverside we float..

Look sis, a boat!

Life's too short..

So never miss a ride!

lt's time you taste

our city's charms..

Start with a dip in

the mother's arms..

Sweet 'rabdi' melts

fingers and time..

Noon brings intoxication

of 'bhaang'..

Lips blush with the

redness of 'paan'..

Simple pleasures meant to disarm.

Patna or Paris, whatever

your route..

Swim here in your

birthday suit..

Visit for comfort or for cheer..

Before death's arms

carry you here.

Cos we are like this..

This is how we are!

This city is Bliss..

This is who we are!

Hey, the match-maker!

With her bag of loafers.

Run with all your might..

From her ungallant knights!

Run.. quick!!

Uncle Rajju's freeloading again.

His son is all muscle, no brain..

Greed is this duo's bane!

No! l hope God blesses them.

And keeps them far from us.

Your nagging makes me shudder..

You're more like a brother!

lf you had a moustache so..

Sis, l'd call you 'Bro'!

lf you, li'l sis, had a tail..

You'd be a cow, big as a whale!

Wonder why sis quit school?

To fight with mom?

No! To help her, fool!

Why must mother toil this way..

Grinding life's miseries away.

While father waits

at home all day..

For Lady Luck to smile his way.

l won!!

Not 7-2, dad.. 7-1 !

Lost by a number, what fun!

Life can be a sad abyss..

But never give your smile a miss.

Cos we are like this..

This is how we are!

l often wish to fly away..

Like a bird, free as day.

And bring back with the night..

A few grains and some light.

Cos we are like this ..

This is how we are!

Another classic sold to

the recycling world!

This will probably wrap peanuts.


This might wrap spices..

But the author gifted

this to father.

Think l'll keep it.

But the weight is less.

Chaucer's naval lint..!

These classic gems are

'light weight' for you?

Which classics?

Anything is classic these days!

This is literature, you jackass!

Not your dad's graffiti!

Don't get personal!

My shoe will get personal

with your bum!

Your father's an old buddy of mine!


So l know your tactics well.

You buy cheap and resell

at triple the rate!

Keep your gems.

Talks like the Lord

of Benares city.

Bloody fool! -Control yourself!

And for god sake change before

the film crew arrives!

Why bother!

l know what is going

to come out of it.

More than the 'treasure' we get

from your silly lottery tickets.


..they're here!

Greetings, sir!

This is Mr. Taneja and Ms. Sophia

from Apex company


Wow! That's awesome!

Please sit.

Pink lace..!

lt's the latest fad on MTV!

Mrs. Sahay's daughters, right?

And your names..?

l'm Vibhavri..

l'm Shubhavri..

Have you seen lots of shoots?

lt's my job!

So you've met Shahrukh Khan?

Not yet!

Not even a glance?

During his morning walk..

or when he's buying milk..


Look here..

- Coming.

But.. Talk to you later.
