Guest Post - Chaddi: A Case Study, for Purba Ray


As if you don't know already who Purba Ray is!

If you are reading something A-Musing like nothing else for miles around, you know it is written by her. Satirical without being condescending and creating humour sans mockery, Purba Ray writes about our life and our times - to shock, surprise, tickle, tease, and basically make us have a good laugh, post-after-post. Rumour has it that because the velvet darts are thrown with such skill and style, many would pay to just get featured on her blog, even as a butt of her jokes (and end up falling in love with the very same jokes of which they form the butt. She is that good!).

I did not pay. But I did offer thanks to the powers above, for a most fortunate day in my blogging life had dawned. Purba had asked me to write a guest post for her space. I have never understood what 'you have arrived!' means, but I think I felt that on the left side of my chest, first, when she asked me to guest blog and then, when she loved the post I sent.

It is called 'Chaddi: A Case Study' and really, you should not judge a post by its title. Or its picture...


After you have picked your favourite one from my collection above, read the post at Purba's blog. And listen, spare me half the laughter you gift her, and I tell you I will taste Nirvana.

  1. Geez! I had to double check if it was me you were talking about. This lady you're talking about doesn't sound like me at all.

    Thank you, darling. I'm in love with your short-stories. You have a gift and I'm sure your readers who flock to your blog already know it.

    1. It is you indeed, and certainly how I see her. Not a false word up there, I promise!

      Thank you for liking my short stories. Doodling in different genres, for now. I hope I do justice to this gift you talk about. For today, gloriously basking on your blog. It means a lot to me!

      Thank you so much!
