The Great Escape…

I know, I know! I’ve been missing for too long from this space. Well, if I hadn’t gone away, would you have missed me? Obviously not. (I’m making the gargantuan assumption that you did miss your favourite blogger*, so just play along puh-lease, ok?)

 

*This is another assumption, within an assumption. So, I presume that my programmer friends will call this a nested assumption. :D

 

On Roshmi’s demand, I’m posting a picture of the escaped convict look that I mentioned in an earlier post. I’m nowhere close to my handsomest best**, I guess, but presentable enough, right?

 

**Now now! You’re pushing things a bit too far. That is certainly not an assumption, for God’s sake!

 

The Dark Lord

 

I shall expect you to be ‘hearty in your approbation and lavish in your praise’. If not, then I shall rightfully presume that you’re still from the Jurassic era and have not had the chance to thumb through Dale Carnegie’s ‘How to win friends and influence people’.

 

P.S. This post is called ‘The Great Escape’ for two reasons:

a) The pic should give you some idea of what an escaped convict ought to look like. (Believe me, the chocolatey folks you see in Prison Break are not real. The ruggedness of the pic above has to be seen to be believed.)

b) I managed to escape the drudgery of daily chores to make this post. Yay!

one, the expression could have been more khoonkhaar,u lukin like the salman khan v2.0 of tere naam...

two, a better title could hv been "how to lose friends and alienate people"...

Sumit said...

Tch tch... that's what watching those T-Bag types on PB does to oneself.

But yeah, the title sounds fantabulous... :)

Nikita said...

oh god. My sympathies ;)

Roshmi Sinha said...

You must have jumped out of your skin... the first time you saw your new 'avatar' in the mirror... right ?!!


P.S. Are you identification papers viz., DL, ID card, etc... still working... ???

Me said...

Sumi..Jumaanji is the word..
wow..i Wish u were the resident of my campus...Junglu bacha..
HR guys itnne overworked hote hai na aajkal :D

Sumit said...

@Nikita... thanks! :D

@Roshmi... actually, I clicked that pic using my webcam and well, I was suitably startled. (No wonder, people had been staring at me earlier as I walked across campus.)

@Dee... lol! I seriously feel like a Jungli. And btw, yeh schedule stems from being a part of PlaceComm.

Ha! Ha!

P.S. You have been tagged again! Check out my latest post...

Kaddu said...

Ouch! You look scary for sure!
Btw, thanks for posting some prose again! :p I was wondering when u'll get over this sudden spell of poetry!

Scriber's Web said...

You look just fine. Just like someone who has been working away. Oh my favorite office quote, "this is an assumption of an assumption".

numerounity said...

Ha ha..That's a nested picture!

Sumit said...

@Kaddu... I shall be suitably prosaic for some time now. Hopefully. :P

@Scriber... thanks! You're always so reassuring.

@Numeronity... :D

Roshmi Sinha said...

You have been tagged again! This time with the 'ABC tag'...

Saurabh said...

ok, when i have kids, and they don't listen to me, i know whose picture i have to show them to scare them off !

Sumit said...

Saurabh...ROTFL! I think I can actually use this business model. I'll sell scary pics of myself to parents who need to rein in their kids.

(I'll give you 10% of the royalties for coming up with the idea.)

What say?

Choco said...

Hahahaaa...I did not see this post umm snap!!! Hard to believe!!!
I want to see right and left profile aka mug shots too...:)

& are you the guy who was in the Kolkata telegraph last week??? the one that escaped from prison while on a check up trip to the hospital??? You know...the one that got his GF to drug the 2 policemen accompanying him with drug laced sweets...

Jokes apart...I am not scared....Just confused..You had mentioned that you were rotund....Can't see any roundness in this ruggedness :|

Sumit said...

@Choco... It's tough enough to click pics of me as it is, mug shots would take ages more.

And naah, I don't feature in such local newspapers. I'm more of the London Times kinds... high-fliers, you know!

And if you can't see any rotundness, AWESOME! :D You're my friend for life, then. :)

Saurabh said...

Ha ha, so I am getting royalties for that, wonderful !

But, believe me, when I am at my natural best, you can't come anywhere near to me as regards the "sacriness" factor. So, I guess our business must keep 2 plans for customers- an inexpensive one featuring your pic, and a more costly one featuring mine. And maybe we could offer a deluxe pack with both, at discounted price.

Sumit said...

Perfect! It's a deal then. :D
