It’s been some time since our Blog has been up, but we are still running a non-profit organization. Well, mostly. So we decided that to improve business, we needed to consult “someone”.
With that noble cause in mind, it was one fine morning, that I found myself waiting in the queue to meet **** Baba (name beeped on purpose. We were refused ‘adequate’ sponsorship for product placement)
And after a few hours I was ushered into the ‘consulting room’……
“So son, what brings you to my humble premises ?
“You call this humble ?
“Modesty forbids son.
“Ah! Ok. So Baba….
“Baba ? What’s Baba ? Have not you read outside, that the medium of communication is strictly English ? Bias on linguistic grounds is forbidden here.
“Ok, Father…. I was saying…
“Father ? Son, I am strictly Secular, with an E. please do not unnecessarily colour me. Call me, Pops.
“Pops ?! What the….i mean er…. I thought…..
“What did you think ?
“No nothing, just had some other kind of image in my head…
“You would do better by formatting all images from your mind, when you enter my chamber. I cannot fill a cup which is already filled with unnecessary things.
“Format ?! What’s this ? Some kind of software download center ?
“LOLZ. Human mind also needs formatting from time to time. Too much trash in our recycle bins.
“What Perpespective ! I am in the right place.
“Right place for what ?
“I was here to seek your valuable advice to make our venture slightly profitable.
“What kind of venture ?
“Blog ? Those things pay ?
“No they don’t, and that’s why I am here.
“Sorry son. I cannot give you my interview, to increase traffic. You need prior appointment for that. Your’s only mentions consultation.
“No actually, I wanted to know if we could do something like change our name a bit ….i mean the name of the Blog ? Would that help ?
“What are you presently called ?
“Is being pressed for words a good thing for a Blog ? That’s total negative Vastu son. Who came up with that ?
“Well, actually the “Wordpress” part was mandatory …..we had no choice.
“Of course you had a choice. Everyone has a choice. It’s just that we don’t exercise it often. Drop that immediately.
“Ok Ba- ….er I mean Pops.
“By the way, you are not from the press I presume ?
“No, of course not. What makes you think that ?
“Well, if you are trying to run some kind of sting here, you are in the wrong place. We only deal with exercise and liberation of the mental kind.
“You mean Ram-
“Hush son. I told you this is a secular organization. No R words out here.
“No I meant…
“Enough son. Your ten minutes are up. I have my next client to attend to.
And, I am literally thrown out. But we do follow the advice. After all, we paid a king’s ransom for it.
