Dating a Mallu chic for Dummies

My life has been enlightened since I met this beautiful Mallu chic, however this does not come without its own set of pitfalls. Read on to find out what they are:

Disclaimer: All the views expressed below are derived from my own experience. Try them at home at your own expense.

  1. She is a confused Indian: Is she from a forbidden country in the Middle East? Does she have a fancy accent? Does she think too high of herself? Am I confusing you? Ok. Have you ever heard her make the following remark:
    ‘McDonald’s!, who eats at McDonald’s?’
    Well, now you know you’re in big trouble.
  2. The great wall of language barriers: If your chic does not speak Hindi and you are a north Indian guy like me you have three options:
    a. You take a course on sign language
    b. You learn Malayalam
    c. You pretend to be dumb (which kind of compliments the sign language point 😉 )
  3. Turmoil of the cuisines: Food for her is sometimes just a cup of coffee or a bag of chips. Yeah that chapati and dal which was always a complete meal for you would now be a distant dream 😉
    Also, be prepared for rice, a lot of rice.
  4.  What is love? If she happens to compete with you in every single hobby of your and beats the shit out of you then just admit that your game is over. You definitely need to go try your luck on someone else now! And BTW love = competition for her 😉

Hope that you now know what things you need to take care of in case you want to date a Mallu chic. All the best!

An MBA Aspirant’s Lure

Image

 

Love has no boundaries,

It makes humans go weak in their knees..

Love has infinite depth,

It needs just your heart, nothing else in fees..

I happened to watch Dharma Production‘s latest 2-States today at a nearby theater. It sure is one of the best masala-stories written by Chetan Bhagat. Kudos to Chetan for such a great book. The story reinstates the idea of India, the idea of Unity in Diversity. It blends the punjabi tadka with southern subtleties and delivers a cocktail of a true Indian fantasy. The movie is slightly slow paced and predictable; even when you haven’t read the book. It, however, I believe, manages to deliver a few common thoughts to most MBA aspirants:

  • One can’t get into IIM Ahmedabad doesn’t mean that one can’t experience the campus. One gets to feel the campus. Oh, still the heartache. 😦
  • How many Alia Bhatts are going to make it to one’s college. 😉
  • What hostels man..! One is free to walk into girls/ boys hostel. Is this the life of an MBA student?! Definitely maybe!
  • If one’s single, then I believe MBA college is definitely one’s hunting ground. The near-final chance to nail a lasting love-story. 😉
  • And the best part, the convocation. What great moment it would be for one’s parents and self. 🙂

Second aspect to the story is a race towards lone-awesomeness between Punjabi extravagance and Tamilian frugality. Such races between ideologies cease to have any winners and the same was emboldened by the story. It almost resulted in loss of Love. However, like all Bollywood classics it lives up to the expectation of a perfect happy ending. With all being said, I felt that Bollywood is gradually becoming more pan-Indian rather than being purely north-centered. The movie in this case featured songs both in Hindi and Tamil which makes it appealing even to the people from India’s Southern region. Chennai Express’s adulatory Lungi Dance for Rajnikanth; to please the fans from South, is yet another example.

Reasons to watch this movie?

  • For unadulterated and intensified Indian masala/ melodrama.
  • If you haven’t read the book.
  • If you are a CAT aspirant for year 2014/ 2015.
  • You have an equally complicated love story. Do take your parents along.
  • You’ve ample free time and money to kill and squander respectively. Just kidding! 😛
