Mani

Now who the hell is mani u might ask.

Mani??? neha... u NEVER told us! but mani??? is that his name? my girl friends will definately ask. is he tall? is he nice looking? which brings me on to another topic. wud u ever go out with someone with a weird name? not that im sayng mani is weird, but something like....say...ragotamma?? he might be drop dead *gorgeous*, very sweet,thoughtfull, blah blah.. wud u go out with him??? just a thought :)

anyway, before u jump conclusions, Mani is the sweetest dog ever! he's adopted by the isthri kari(ironing lady) on my street and is pampered by everyone. mani is famous around here. all my friends and relatives never fail to yell at mani to get out of the way when he's happliy sleeping in the middle of the road. he practically owns the place. and the poor affected party in the car has to make these precarious turns around the dog and graze the walls to go through.and dear mani is still sleeping.

i dont know what prompted me to write this post. i just feel like it i guess, or maybe because i saw mani eating somethng downstairs! btw, his favourite food is curd rice. i was proudly given this piece of info by the aforementioned isthri kari when mani was walking me back from the college bus to home. this was a regular feature ever since mani came to live this side.Right through class 11,12 and college mani would walk me to the school van/college bus to and from home. i like to think of this as a nice peaceful walk and thinking time!

i know most of u must be thinking im nuts to be writing about mani. especially A. but there are somethings u cant explain!

so next time you're around here somethere, dont forget to give mani a shout!

this whole things reminds me of a song i learnt in school.


How much is that doggie in the window? (arf! arf!)
The one with the waggley tail
How much is that doggie in the window? (arf! arf!)
I do hope that doggie's for sale

I must take a trip to California
And leave my poor sweetheart alone
If he has a dog, he won't be lonesome
And the doggie will have a good home

How much is that doggie in the window? (arf! arf!)
The one with the waggley tail
How much is that doggie in the window? (arf! arf!)
I do hope that doggie's for sale

I read in the paper there are robbers (roof! roof!)
With flashlights that shine in the dark
My love needs a doggie to protect him
And scare them away with one bark
I don't want a bunny or a kitty
I don't want a parrot that talks
I don't want a bowl of little fishies
He can't take a goldfish for a walk

How much is that doggie in the window? (arf! arf!)
The one with the waggley tail
How much is that doggie in the window? (arf! arf!)I
do hope that doggie's for sale
I do hope that doggie's for sale


kind of has a melancholy ring to it doesnt it?
