Baigan ka bharta...

A A A A B B B B B B B B A A A A A A A A A B B B B B B B

If you are wondering what the above is, it simply means "Long time no C"... old one eh? alright we know its quite some time that we had updated this space... but then thats the trend these days right? Trying to put up as being very busy... everybody does... so are we... trying to look very busy... hence updating after a couple of months...

So why are we posting right now? Only to share a couple of PJ's... attract a couple of comments... another couple of hits... thats about it... alright thats all that we have for now... (already happy eh?)

What did we do for so long? Absolutely nothing... (if work qualifies as nothing, which logically, technically and all other ally it should)... And we went to sasuraal for a week... To Kerala for a week of absolutely nothing (this time we are serious)... Nothing but pure absolute bliss... thats where we discovered the BLISS cycle of SLEEP - EAT - SLEEP, whereas Iyeropatni was busy catching up with our in-laws.

Now our sasuraal is in Gods Own Country of Kerala. We think its about time that we christen the GELF as god's own country as most of folks from Kerala are there and the ones in Kerala are raring to go there, but that again is not the point of the post. Which brings us back to, what was the point of this post? We dont know... And we cant rack our inexistent brains to try and find that out...

Back to Kerala... Lots of things we learnt there...

First and foremost, that the jewellery industry in Kerala is actually owned by a couple of Lukkas (lukka in bambaiyya hindi is like us... total waste)... No seriously... the biggest of the lukkas are called Francis Alukkas, Jose Alukkas, Joy Alukkas et al. Quite a revelation we say... we are waiting for the day when yours truly lukka will become someone....

Second and not so foremost... one doesnt need to go around breaking into and stealing from jewellery stores to make good money... all one has to do is to attend a mallu wedding and hold everyone at ransom... we didnt do it because we would be recognized in the entire hall... even if we were to mask ourself... yah right... our height would give away...

Third is that, to restore the balances of H in this universe, we should get gujjus to marry south indians. Thus a Jignes/Kalpes/Manisa married to Latha/Geetha/Santhosh will make sure that there is a balance of H in this universe. This can also help the first observation by having a couple of Zaveris moving southwards.

Fourth and a mathematical wonder is that "The ages of mallus are divisible by their age and 1 only". Because they are all PRAYAM(prime) NUMBERS... btw PRAYAM = AGE in mallu :)

And lastly, back to the title of this post... we were introduced to newer relatives in our sasuraal as "Iyeropatni's Bharta" (Bharta in Mallu means Husband)... So we decided to confer upon Iyeropatni, the title of Baigan (Brinjal / Eggplant), which makes us "Baigan ka bharta"...

adios...

Biju said...

baigan ka bhartha!!! good one.. LOL

Amey said...

From what I know of the accent, the "bharta" must have more A's at the end that you have put at the start of the post, right?

Don't you find it ironic that the "baigan" a.k.a. your begum, will be the one beating you, and not the other way round ;)

Vidya said...

Baigan ka bharta and PRAYAM were awesome. Just too good. Welcome back.

Iyer Education said...

HP: I hope that you dont hope to see more of me... that is terrible for the world :)

Biju: thengew...

Amey: as per south indian traditions, the Bharta should have an additional 'H' and call it BhartHA... and the second part of your comment is not ironic... it is factual :)

vidya: welcome to you too... I hope you keep coming back to this page and see nothing new... feel very happy and content and go back :)

KJ: I am already a TV star here... not in soaps... in "India's most wanted", "Sansani" and all other fearful serials.. so save yourself the trouble...

vitruvian: please see my reply to vidya above... it is very good for your (mental) health :)

anN-series said...

hi....nice post...btw they didnt address u as 'bharta'..but as 'bhartaav'...

?bLeAk?!! said...

But I dont have an H in my name :(
(Aswin)..
even tho I am a mallu pure bred, who is rearing to go to the US of A just to keep up with changing times...

Sreejith said...

prayam :P awesome! wonder how you got away with calling your better half a baigan!!

Priya Iyer said...

LOL :)) came across ur blog and loved this post! glad to meet a fellow iyer! :)

"To restore the balances of H in this universe, we should get gujjus to marry south indians. Thus a Jignes/Kalpes/Manisa married to Latha/Geetha/Santhosh will make sure that there is a balance of H in this universe." ROTFL. can relate to this very well, being an iyer brought up in gujjuland. that's a great idea indeed! :)

mathew said...

hey hey u got it all wrong..the lukkas are all part of family business..they have a distant cousin in the states called George Lucas..he makes movies though.

Iyer Education said...

anN-series: bhartaav is actually 'behaviour' in english... so we used our discretion there :)

aswin: you are a good example of again balancing the H (just the other way around)... just find some gujju girl with a H in her name (and lots of money)... and have a good time in the US of A :)

sreejith: you'd pity with me when you figure out the names my better half has for me... so baigan is kinda small and sweet in comparison :)

priya: first impressions at iyer education are always good... good to see you around :)

mathew: LOL man.. never knew the LUCAS had COLONIAL COUSINS out in the US

Iceman said...

God 2 c ya bak nigga... not nigga, make that baingan ka bharta!!!

Hello - decided to de lurk after many thoughts ...... coz the first thought on reading this was - how to make intelligent use of the phrase "thali ka baingan" in my comment so as to convey that I have good wit, grasp of at least 2 languages, 2nd thought - what does it mean anyway, 3rd thought ... let me transfer this to you since your post put that thought in my head in first place

Too many thoughts dancing tandav in my head - pliss to help urgently

(BTW - out of nowhere - another thought going through - must mention I am not tambram/tamiyer but kannada madhawa who is constantly surrounded by tambram /iyer - the adorable ones!)
