Pffft !!

Just as Wendy is getting cosy with Chandler on my favorite sitcom Friends, suddenly i find myself staring at a blank screen..Unable to understand whats happening i fiddle around hopelessly with the remote - without any success - i peep outta my window to check if alls fine with my neighbour's television - it is - she's as usual watching some soap on Sony. Unable to take it nemore, i holler to The Good Lord up above "It just aint fair - why me? Why me?"

Flash!! A brilliant streak of lightning!!

A booming voice thunders "Kya hua? Why the heck are you cribbing, you nasty earthling? Its a tough job i got here and once in a while i do screw up - cant you just ignore it as an aberration?"

I retort "Not this time - i've had too much for this week"

The Voice is annoyed and threatens "I dont get it - u better explain or else..."

Not to be cowed down i sneer "After enduring days of shameless drama i discover that my country has a reluctant and almost reclusive Prime Minister - I realise that my bosses earn "obscene pots of gold" while i am expected to slave on for "pride" - and to add insult to serious injury, you screw up all my weekend plans with a silly wedding (assuming marriages are still made in heaven) - If this isnt reason enough to crib, what is ?"

The Voice ponders "I guess you have a point - how can i compensate ? I grant you three wishes - Name them fast.. Your time starts now..10..9...8.."

"Hold on Hold on - Not so fast - Can i phone a friend?"


"You *@&^%$, ok, here i go...First of all, i want.."

"Sorry, your time's up but since you started your first wish i will let that count - Finish it"
"Want to.. want to.. see Aayitha Ezhuthu (Yuva in Hindi)tomorrow night - can you arrange for 2 tickets please"

"Thathasthu" is the last i hear and lo, i find myself with two passes to Nataraj.

My friend screams "You crazy git - Havent u seen BRUCE ALMIGHTY? Couldnt you have asked for something bigger?"

(Hanging my head in shame) "Like what?"

"Dunno... but atleast balcony tickets yaar not stall"
