I was wondering what to put up now as I haven’t able to write anything new from the last 3-4 days. So, when I looked back, I remembered the time when I had written testimonials, rather poetically, on few of my ORKUT friends!!. Though it’s a different issue that they aren’t in touch like before and I still don’t know what they felt after “accepting” it, atleast it gave me an opportunity to showcase my talent. Here I narrate the story behind the first such poetic testimonial I ever wrote on anyone!!
C-CHINMAYA ie ME
POP-PRINCESS OF PUNE!!
LOCATION: TBSL OFFICE, ANDHERI-EAST, MUMBAI..MID 2007
(It’s a lazy Saturday afternoon and there is no work post lunch around 3.30 PM.)
C-(to himself)…arre yaar, its still 3.30..i am through with my work and my reports are also done. Sanju and gang will meet me at 6 near station..till then, what to do?..none to chat as well!!and going back to Kinara is also no use..All these girls will head to either INFINITY or CINEMAX..haila!!..why not I bug my POP???

POP-since you love THE CITY and PEOPLE, I hate it…and no more talks about it..understand??
C-hmm..okies..anything for you, for today!..so,what are you (when he is cut short by POP)
POP-listen ‘C’, are you online?..check my ORKUT NAA!!

POP-arre dumbo..i check yours when I am online!!..and I messaged you my login and password..do tell me naa..please “C”
C-here goes..i don’t get anything in return for doing this though we have access in office..
(Checks her scrapbook and updates her…)
POP-thanks “C”!!..but none have written me a testimonial..so “C”, why don’t you write one for me?
C-hmmm..let me think “POP”..what will I get in return?
