Right. To fulfill her predilection towards prodding [yours truly] lazy arses, Extempore has tagged me. The rules go thusly

  1. Pick up the nearest book.
  2. Open to page 123.
  3. Find the fifth sentence.
  4. Post the next three sentences.
  5. Tag five people, and acknowledge the person who tagged you.

Am reading Mohammed Hanif’s excellent, excellent, a veritable pyrotechnic debut A Case of Exploding Mangoes, which everyone who knows what’s good for them should read. However, between having houseguests parked here for three months and misplacing the book twice, I cannot post the lines just yet.

Here are the lines from another inciendiary and marvellous book that I am reading, and likewise, anyone who wants to do his soul a good turn should / must / will read. This is Indra Sinha’s Animal’s People, and let me tell you – by the end of this book, you will not only know too much about Animal “I used to be human once” – but you’ll love him too. And screw page 123 – there’s jucier stuff just above it. 😛 

‘Don’t be disgusting,’ I say. ‘She’s like my sister.’

‘Some sister,’ says he. ‘Kuala Lumpur Police Department.’

‘Fuck off.’ Kuala Lumpur Police Departmentt, which in turn is a way to say Khade Lund Pe Dhoka, or the deception of the standing cock, c’est a dire, a pricktease.

 And I pass the buck on to
Amar Akbar and Anthony.

  1. In reply the Guru suggested the qazi should drag his feet round and leave them pointing in a direction where God and the Kabah were not. The qazi proceeded to do so, but when he moved the Guru’s legs the miharab moved with them. Confounded by this miracle the qazi fell at his feet.

  2. @ Inspector paa ji:

    Waheguruji ka khalsa
    Waheguruji ki fateh.

  3. Sounds interesting! I just put it on hold at the library. 🙂
