I have some more H. gossip Ladies and Gentlemen.
Unfortunately none of it is current. He doesn’t seem to do much now a days. Sigh. My blog is doomed.
I’d give you my own personal gossip but I’m tragically dull.
Oh yes about H., when we were in school now, H. actually managed to ask my friend Shweta out on a date. This was very scandalous back then, but H. was always progressive.
This girl accepted his offer and they went out for a movie. I really admire H. for this. I’ve gone to a Hindi movie with this girl and she cried through most of it. She didn’t want to sit next to me because I kept laughing.
What do you expect? Aishwariya Rai running around with her stick-in-the-mud pondhu arranged marriage hubby (they always are aren’t they?), who , like a great big dolt has offered to take her all over Europe to look for her lover boy boy-friend so that they can ‘be together’. Of course, Aishu decides she wants to stick around with the pondhu because its her ‘duty’ just as she finds her loverboy.
What a fucking surprise. Anyway Shweta cried, sniffed and sobbed all through the film.
Good fucking luck H.
Before I get carried away with my rant… half way through their movie date H. gently edges his hand along the arm rest. An agonizing 5 minutes later he edges closer, and closer, and closer, until finally…….he holds her hand (Oh my!).
Shweta inclines her head, and turns it slowly towards him, and whispers softly in his ear…..
“I feel uncomfortable……can you please let go…..”
They never went out on another date. Five or six years later they met at a New Years eve party and finally broke up.
