IDLY served with JAM...

We are breaking all the rules here with this post. Gone are the days when you could relish your idli with a nice hot cup of sambhar or the spicy coconut chutney. In the absence of the above two you could also have it with readily stocked up and convenient molaga podi. This time around, we are presenting to you, IDLY served with JAM.

For all those who have begun / thought of beginning to puke at just the thought of devouring idlis with jams, there is respite. Things may not be as bad as you think they are. Read ahead to get the respite (or the lack of it)

The post “
Idly with Iyer” from Iyer Education was published in the “JAM” fortnightly magazine issue dated 15th – 29th September 2006. We would like to express our tons of thanks and gallons of gratitude (we likes these terms that we coined) to Rashmi Bansal, the editor of JAM magazine for having the article published there. We would like to also thank (*takes out a 2365 meter long fax roll with names written on it… calculates the estimated time to type them… approximately 23.443 hrs… and consciously decides against it*)… err… err… lets leave that for later.



Here are snapshots of the cover page of the magazine and the page on which the article was published. These are pics and not scans. We are too lazy to even scan them and post them for now. We also like the sketch that they have made for the post with “the fat guy” holding an idli in hand. Let us tell you upfront that it is a sketch/cartoon and not a representation of our real self. So all interested ladiejj can still stay interested in case you are still interested…


And as usual, we end this post with PJ… Please go through it, and in case your instinct tells you to kill us, don’t even bother listening to those silly voices in your heads. They are just there to trouble you…

The next time somebody calls you “lacey”, there are a couple of things that you have to do before you decide to react. Firstly, you’d have to do a background check of this particular person. This is because if this guy/gal turns out to be a mallu, we give you guarantee that they are not making any snide remarks on your exotic / erotic (select the proper adjective yourself) lingerie. Lacey to a mallu is sluggish to an Englishman. In case you didn’t still get it, mallus pronounce Lazy as Lacey. So please do give benefit of the doubt to the poor fellow and in case the person isn’t mallu, then you can take the necessary course of action depending upon circumstances.

adios…

PS: We just checked the
JAM website and IDLY with Iyer is featured there as “Taaza Maal”. What an irony we say… stale idlis from Iyerospace stored under Taaza Maal.

Congrats!!! Stale idli in JAM, now that would be a sticky situation...

HP said...

aah...The moment I saw the article in JAM, the first thing that I came to know is your name :-)

Yeah..yeah, I know your name is in full glory on the blog but whoever calls you by that name :-)

btw, Congrats on being featured there..Now, I can surely say that my long-beloved JAM has gone to the dogs..Just Kidding..Maybe they are back to being what they are best ..
Surely, they have lost some sheen since I first started reading JAM some 7 years ago..neways, enough of my ramblings...

btw, moi has eaten Idli with Jam as well as with Sauce...Blame it on the canteen chatni :-)

Cheers,
HP

godo said...

heheh good one dude and hail the stale idli

iyer education said...

@scribz, u sure many have a hope after this? i think otherwise... i was always good at being a bad example ;)

@fleiger, there are no more any holes in the theory... and it has been proved that fevicol is much more stickier than idly with jam ;)

@biju, stale idlis (are harder than a) rock...

@cardamom, you can join in case your aim in life is to misguide others at all costs :P

@venus, thengew vairy much :)

@godo, thengew vairy much to u too :)
