Having a bad day? Someone getting on your nerves? Things not going your way?

Then try some Samosa Therapy!

Follow the steps below for instant happiness and contentment in the face of all things that bug you from here to Jhoomritalaiya.

1. Buy one dozen aloo samosas. Dunk four of these into mix of pudhina and imli chutneys, and devour while hot. Feel the taste of the crisp, golden fried maida mixing with the spicy aloo filling, and complimented perfectly by the minty-tamarindy chutneys. Ahaaaa!

2. Once the fabulous double carbohydrate combo of maida and potatoes hits your bloodstream and induces a feeling of well-being, log into Samosapedia. (If you haven't created a login id, eat off two more samosas and do so.)

3. Think of the funniest words/phrases/anecdotes you know. Try to channel your current annoyance or frustration into one of these. Make it as full of nyansanse things as possible. (Hint: you will know if you have succeeded if you start showing your 32 teeths and the person next to you thinks you look loony all of a sudden)

4. Type them into Samosapedia and submit. If someone has already defined them, fikar not I say. Just eat off two more samosas, and define away.

5. Feel all the negative vibes of your day dissolving under the influence of a High-Glycaemic Index snack and the involuntary chuckles that bubble up when you look at the utter rubbish you have just keyed in.

6. Finish off the last 4 samosas with a lighter heart and a happier countenance.

Don't forget to take one few pudhin hara.

Usage

Before most of the population had any access to cable, countless edge-of-the-seat-nail-biting ODI matches were interrupted to bring us this brain-dead, follow-up segment after the actual news on Doordarshan in the nineties, covering the gory details of the day-to-day proceedings from both the Houses of the Indian parliament. If you thought your misery ended with Sansad samachaar, guess again..immediately followed by the English version-Parliament news! Blow my brains out..

Excerpt from article in The Hindu newspaper
'Son Stroke' syndrome. July 14, 2011

Why should a son of an Indian cricketer be subjected to humiliation that will damage his self-esteem? Indian cricket may be suffering from ‘Son Stroke' but one needs to give these sons enough opportunities.

If sons of politicians, medical practitioners and engineers can take up their fathers' professions, why can't sons of cricketers do the same. If they don't perform, drop them. We should not exert additional pressure on them.

Ladies Swimsuit-cum-frock. Unique swimwear designed to preserve the modesty of shy aunties in India who decide to go for a swim but worry about unwanted male attention. Considering the profusion of naughty Indian uncles that hang around public swimming pools ready to letch at anything female that moves, not such a bad idea. Eng girls who have gained a lot of weight around the hips often opt to purchase them for their cellulite hiding properties.

Usage

"Ey come da, I want to go to Commercial's and buy one swimsuit frock and cap. Jaynagar 5th block pool is having new ladies timings"
