Congratulations Anant


Dearest Anant,

On the onset would like to congratulate you on the amazing weight loss and what a loss it has been: a total of 108 kgs in eighteen months that comes to a whooping 6 kgs per month.

12963921_10153452939486717_3228393883383403705_nThis week hasn’t been too good for me, first a hospital sends me a sms asking me if I am obese (luckily they didn’t use the word fat, guess it is now politically incorrect) and asking me to visit their weight loss clinic , phew !! I had consoled myself that it wasn’t meant for me personally but a part of some bulk sms marketing tool. मन को समझाया ही था और आप श्री के वज़न कम करने के चर्चे सब newspapers / social media / news portals ने हम जैसे लोगों पे ऐसे bombard करे की लोगों को अब जवाब देते नहीं बनता है. एक शुभ चिन्तक ने personal message करके news forward की, की शायद मैं आप से inspire हो जाओं.

downloadवैसे BTW कई जगह तो आप के इस शानदार weigh loss ने Panama Leaks जैसे तुच्छ सी news को भी पछाड़ दिया, वैसे क्या फरक पड़ता है उन leaks का, पैसे आये न आये लोगों को यह जानना ज़रोरी है की आप कितने चुस्त और दुरुस्त हो गए हैं.

So we were informed about your fantastic fitness and diet regime that included a 21-km walk, followed by yoga, weight training, functional training and high-intensity cardio exercises and a zero-sugar, low-carb diet along with adequate fat and protein. Hats off to your determination and drive to achieve the impossible, but I wonder is it even remotely and humanely possible to stick to this kind of high intensive regime for ordinary mortals like us??

I have always been a little larger (ALL) ever since I remember and am used to the jokes about my weight and size, it is now an integral part of who I am, which I know isn’t healthy and a sure sign of future sickness and disease, over the years have tried all possible means of loosing weight , you name it and I have tried it except going under the knife , an idea that I am willing to explore but not as of now.

And with this I want to ask you something on behalf of the ALL Fraternity, with hand on your heart; which is now closer to your hand after the loss, did you or did you not go under the knife?? You know what I mean, for I have yet to come across anyone who has achieved such a staggering reduction in size ins such short span by just following what you did. Some of my friends and acquaintances have been very open about their surgeries while others bluff is easily identifiable.

download (1)Dear, I am not insinuating anything, just asking so I know for sure what you did is possible, so that I can then fix my appointment with the Next Door Dietician Bhabhi who is busy prescribing factory diet regimes to one and sundry and join the पड़ोस का अखाड़ा / Gym to covert my cellulite into डोले -शोले and make your before-after pictures as my whatsapp DP !!

Yours truly,

Deepak Sukhadia
A Proud Fat Man

Happy Diwali !!


Happy Diwali!!

I woke up this morning grumpy, drained from the week of festivities that started from the 9th November, coming to a close with loads of wishes and goodwill generated, if true would help me sail pass the mundane everyday life with ease and comfort!!

So was this Diwali any different than the previous one and the answer is a big NO!!

Was it less tiring and comfortable than the previous one, the answer to that one too is a big NO!!

I fail to understand why our festivals have to be so physically tiring. Maybe if i do not sleep by 4.30 AM playing the games that one is supposed to play during Diwali and lose sleep over the hours and the money lost on it, maybe then I won’t be tired so much!! But what is Diwali without these games?? Moreover with the lack of domestic help during the festival and no excuse to avoid the domestic chores for fear of getting into the firing line of wife adds to the already exhausted muscles, tendons and whatever that is supposed to ache.

Sometimes I feel that they should be a ban on meeting anyone for 2 days after Diwali. Stay Home, catch up on the sleep lost and just chill. Like it happens these days when you receive invite for a party to consider a message or email as a personal one, so should be the case for Diwali. Each message sent should be considered a personal phone call and phone call should be considered as a personal visit, Period!! No personal visit should be mandated no matter what the elders tell you.

Grace period of 4 days should be allowed to reply to all the messages flooding your inbox, be it on FB, whatsapp, Twitter and SMS and no copy paste job just a plain Thank You is perfect. The Kaju Katli , Badam- Pista, is something I am not even looking at forget tasting till 2016 is ushered in.

Each Diwali however there was this SRK film that I would look forward but that simple pleasure has been snatched away with the release of the Big Budget Family Entertainer of Bhai: Prem Ratan Dhan Payo and this also isn’t looking to promising. But old habits die hard , will still go and watch the same and shall crib and crib after the show, that I m sure of considering the trailers and the reviews.

However to set the record straight, the above in no way takes away the sanctity of the festival or the festivities surrounding it that the others may have. It is just my personal experience and angst and do not expect many to subscribe to it.

PS : The last line has been used to avoid being exiled to neighboring countries by the majority tolerant sections of the society.
