rendezvous’ at passport office

I had gone to the thane passport office yesterday to get my ECNR thing done.

the timing for enquiry and submission was 10.30 to 12.30 noon and collection is 3.30 to 5.30 (they have made it 4.30 now)

this is a huge place wid spaced out people wid documents n fotus in triplicate running from counter to counter and more counters…..

since my previous experiences have never been smooth I decided to talk to an agent first.. I go to the least shady looking of them … I told bhai ECNR karneka hai .. he says form leke aao 1 number counter pe… the evil security guard who job is to juss stop all the people from entering so that the agents get their work done..

I tell him passport hai stamp maarkne ka hai…

I reach counter number 1… I give da lady 20 buck note for a 5 buck form (I’m worried that she wont return da change), after waiting for a while I find some chiller in my bag… I come outside again and give da forms n tell da agent to fill it up… thumb impressions n multiple signatures.. here n there…

then again counter number 7….

da guy on counter number 7 is missing in action… its nearly 12.10 .. this spaced out guy finally emerges from da loo… has a look on my cerits ask totally tangent questions…then take my papers to some superiors and comes back… has a long stare at da passport and and me .. and blurts toda alag hai fotu.. ye right fucker.. this has a frechie .. after ruthlessly stamping 3-4 times.. he says abi counter number 8 mein jao madam ke paas

Im at counter number 8, this totally pained madam doing some major kaam (12.20 pm)

im waiting .. im second in line.. some sidey agent gets in between… 12.21

then some sidey staff comes wid some wedding invitation card.. I think its one of his children.. he wrote da card to all in da office not individually so our madam was cribbing about it.. this rendezvous goes on and on and finally its all smiles at 12.26

then the printer goes kaput… out techie madam tries to be Mr fix it… its a shady legacy dot matrix printer… she maraos some 8-10 prints before getting it right… 12.28 pm… me in on GAS by then… else I would have to come again the next day….

then vola da printer starts working… Mr pandey da agent get his work done…

now im on line… she cant find my documents… I help her out… pay her da money…

she says… sade cahr baje aao… and da madam says sorry for da delay .. ..wow when did one hear Govt servants say dat!!

wow.. mission 1 done (12.30 pm)

now for four hours im in Thane , time which never seems to passs….. after having 2 lunch rounds of nasta pani and checking mail at a cafe… I go back to da passport office….. finally got it done at 4.15 pm ..

We Indians tend to blame these guys for all da shit they put us through, we are partially right but I also feel that these guys are a frustrated lot… frustrated coz of the people the have to hang out n interact everyday…. illiterate junta from all over, lousy travel agents n their side kicks, hajis n their gangs of ten .. one to fill form 10 for moral support, rude aunty fed up of being shoved from counter to counter…

If you ask me would I like to go there again no way …… I guess god made these guys or punished them rather to do this job :):)

Creation of the Computer !!!

1. In the beginning GOD created the Bit and the Byte. And from those he
created the Word.

2. And there were two Bytes in the Word; and nothing else existed. And
God separated the One from the Zero; and he saw it was good.

3. And God said – Let the Data be; And so it happened. And God said –
Let the Data go to their proper places. And he created floppy disks and
hard disks and compact disks.

4. And God said – Let the computers be, so there would be a place to
floppy disks and hard disks and compact disks. Thus God created
computers and called them hardware.

5. And there was no Software yet. But God created programs; small and
big… And told them – Go and multiply yourselves and fill all the

6. And God said -I will create the Programmer; And the Programmer will
make new programs and govern over the computers and programs and Data.

7. And God created the Programmer; and put him at Data Center; And God
showed the Programmer the Catalog Tree and said You can use all the
volumes and subvolumes but DO NOT USE Windows.

8. And God said – It is not Good for the programmer to be alone. He
a bone from the Programmer’s body and created a creature that would
up at the Programmer; and admire the Programmer; and love the things
Programmer does; And God called the creature: the User.

9. And the Programmer and the User were left under the naked DOS and it
was Good.

10. But Bill was smarter than all the other creatures of God. And Bill
said to the User – Did God really tell you not to run any programs?

11. And the User answered – God told us that we can use every program
and every piece of Data but told us not to run Windows or we will die.

12. And Bill said to the User – How can you talk about something you
not even try. The moment you run Windows you will become equal to God.
You will be able to create anything you like by a simple click of your

13. And the User saw that the fruits of the Windows were nicer and
easier to use. And the User saw that any knowledge was useless �C since
Windows could replace it.

14. So the User installed the Windows on his computer; and said to the
Programmer that it was good.

15. And the Programmer immediately started to look for new drivers. And
God asked him – What are you looking for? And the Programmer answered –
I am looking for new drivers because I can not find them in the DOS.
God said – Who told you need drivers? Did you run Windows? And the
Programmer said – It was Bill who told us to!

16. And God said to Bill – Because of what you did you will be hated by
all the creatures. And the User will always be unhappy with you. And
will always sell Windows.

17. And God said to the User – Because of what you did, the Windows
disappoint you and eat up all your Resources; and you will have to use
lousy programs; and you will always rely on the Programmers help.

18. And God said to the Programmer – Because you listened to the User
you will never be happy. All your programs will have errors and you
have to fix them and fix them to the end of time.

19. And God threw them out of the Data Center and locked the door and
secured it with a password.


wot Wikipedia says about Apu :)

Nahasapeemapetilon family


(Redirected from Apu)

Apu Nahasapeemapetilon is a fictional character featured in The Simpsons television series. He is the proprietor of the “Kwik-E-Mart” (a subsidiary of Nordyne Defense Dynamics), the local convenience store. He is an immigrant from India, and like most Simpsons characters is a caricature of a common stereotype — that of the South Asian convenience store owner. His most defining characteristics are his exaggerated Indian English, his devotion to the Hindu god Ganesh and his indefatigable immigrant work-ethic. His catchphrase is “thank you, come again”, cheerfully and dutifully repeated to customers after a transaction. There are many hidden jokes in the show that play off of Western ignorance of the Indian ethnic landscape: there have been shows in which Apu has been called a “Jolly Bengali” and, paradoxically, a “Pakistani“! (one cannot be both Bengali and Pakistani; also, since he is Indian, he cannot be Pakistani).

Apu’s family

Apu is married to Manjula Nahasapeemapetilon, with octuplet children: Anoop, Geet, Nabendu, Poonam, Pria, Sandeep, Sashi and Uma

Apu and Manjula were wed through an arranged marriage. Despite trying to wriggle out of the arrangement at first, Apu was won over after actually meeting Manjula and the two actually did fall in love. Later, Manjula gave birth to the amazing amount of eight children after taking a larger-than-recommended dose of fertility drugs. Apu and Manjula have a mostly happy marriage, despite understandable marital problems caused by Apu’s workaholism, the strain of caring for eight children, and a single instance of infidelity by Apu.

Apu is a naturalized US citizen, and holds a PhD in computer science. He graduated first in his class of ‘nine million’ at Caltech — the Calcutta Institute of Technology — going on to earn his doctorate at the Springfield Heights Institute of Technology. His doctoral dissertation was the world’s first computer program to play perfect tic-tac-toe (Bart Simpson ruined it by plucking a random punch card out of the box along with several others and the comment, ‘Hey, what’s this one do?’ Apu promptly pitched it into the trash). Apu began working at the Kwik-E-Mart during his college years to help pay off his student loan, and simply never left.

Apu was a member of the barbershop quartet the B-Sharps, which also consisted of Homer Simpson, Barney Gumble and Seymor Skinner. Apu took the stage name, ‘Apu de Beau Marche’. He and his family are devotees of the Hindu gods Shiva and Ganesh. During Apu’s wedding, Homer attempted to play on their fear of the gods, and impersonated Ganesh. However, the impersonation was seen through by one of Apu’s relatives and failed miserably.

Sanjay Nahasapeemapetilon is Apu’s brother who helps him run the Kwik-E-Mart. Sanjay’s daughter (and Apu’s niece) is Pahusacheta Nahasapeemapetilon. Sanjay’s son is Jamshed Nahasapeemapetilon (which belies realistic inconsistency; Apu’s family is Hindu, though Jamshed is a Muslim name).

When Springfield became over-patriotic and took the name “Liberty-Ville”, Apu quickly caught on. He renamed his kids Lincoln, Freedom, Condoleezza, Coke, Pepsi, Manifest Destiny, Apple Pie, and Superman.

I think I will have to move my account to ICICI.
