Frog Tales

This blog is created today… this moment. A report for the 1st yr PhD viva is due tomorrow, and procrastination has reached its highest peak. Surfing internet, listening to music, reading some “aga saga”, or breaking into a song with a croaky voice … all tried, tested and over used formulae to keep mind away from work have turned stale. The new trick was making a few call across the Atlantic, but friends did not budge much to my atrocities (how condescending… so what if it is their working hour???).

A quick chat with Manas confirmed the next plan. We both agreed on a single point (needless to say we generally agree at all points). Writing blogs are the new trend and sound quite savvy. Most people flash one… so high time I should have one myself. Also, HE won’t be able to say “tumhe padhai karne ka thoda bhi man nahi hai”.

Problem was getting an appropriate name for the blogspot. Surely, I do not have much to say in my blogs, other than my rattle tattles… nonsense ramblings… surreal ideas. But I do have some loyal, faithful listeners. The first blog-name that struck the mind was frog tales… like the Frog-grandma in Froggy tales, I tell my (non-sense) tales to my frog-grandchildren, and hope that some day some big frog will also come and listen to it. On the other side, just like the proverbial frog from the small pond who tells tales about the sea, I too am confined in my own pond and believe the pond to be the sea. Well, friends, those who know me, know that this is me… and that did not stop you having me as a friend. NA?

So, Frog Tale name was appropriate, I guess. There was some initial hitch……non-availability of an URL in the same name. Manas again came in handy and added “COCKTAIL” in front of FROG TALES (nothing more was expected of him at 2 am in the morning and with a blood-alcohol level beyond normal range).

So friends, this is the saga of cocktail of frog-tales. Before I get lost in Froggy world, let me go back to my long-pending work and finish the report for tomorrow. But with a promise to come back with more Froggy Tales.

Till then...

Croak Croak.
