BTW, I am also a former busboy, grocery stock clerk, gas pumper, landscaper, house painter, mail clerk, newspaper delivery boy, copy editor, clinical drug trial monitor oh and a job that certainly your people can relate to (at least here in America), convenience store manager.
You don't need to tell me about you jobs, since, even without you informing me about your former jobs, the stamp of a menial worker is on you.

Anyway, best of luck.

I truly wish you very well.

Yeah, I know that you're sexually attracted to handsome young guys and to male animals.

BTW, are you turned on by young boys age 12?

Hi Old Man,

You've got about 10 more years (till age 65) to make a little more money than what you're making and after that you may be bed ridden or too weak to walk about without a walking stick.

BTW, if your partner kicks the bucket before you then being a childless widower who'll keep an eye on you in your old age when you may turn into an invalid or when you get seriously ill?

HUGH,

How often in a week do you make out with that thick-lipped frump who you call your wife?

Any preferred position?

How often in a week do you jerk off?

How often in a week do you enjoy a roll in bed with your boy friend?

You're the one who sounds ill.

I'm doing just fine, but thanks for caring.

Who will take care of you?

TO JOEL
The NYTIMES' article that speaks about Ambani, at one point spend a few words about you or the character you portray yourself, here.
I'll report what it says:
"For generations, Altamount was a favored address for India’s Anglicized elite, a group British imperialists groomed in their own image. To a 19th-century British official, Thomas Babington Macaulay, they were “interpreters between us and the millions whom we govern; a class of persons, Indian in blood and color, but English in taste, in opinions, in morals and in intellect.”
As time went on, the elites were steeped in British culture, spoke with Oxbridge accents, pooh-poohed Bollywood films and danced only to British and American music. They dismissed those who spoke Indian languages at home as “vernies,” short for “vernaculars.”

Then, in the 1990s, Bombay changed its name to Mumbai, and Altamount was renamed S. K. Barodawalla Marg. Neither name has stuck with everyone, but the changes were part of an emerging movement to purge India of its colonial legacy.
Such changes accompanied the rise to power of a new class of Indians who want to live and work and raise their children in India, who are tethered to Indian values, food and popular culture and who are unapologetic about their indigenous tastes. The Ambanis are this class’s first family.
So our Yoda Apu is stuck in the 80s.

Not very swanky, is he?

CBS announces Stephen Colbert as the next host of 'The Late Show,' succeeding David Letterman.

__________

Wow. Kind of shocked. Though I admit a bit of a man crush on Colbert.
Love that guy.

Thought Ferguson had a shot. Wouldn't be surprised if it came out they offered it to Stewart first.

Stewart says Colbert is a better fit. He's probably right.

SOUTH MUMBAI IS EVEN MORE WESTERNIZED THESE DAYS

The elite localities of South Mumbai are way too wealthy, way too westernized, way too classy and way too filled with great intellectual talent that even the vast majority of westerners would feel out of place in these swank South Mumbai areas like Altamount Road, Carmichael Road, Cuffe Parade, Malabar Hill, Ridge Road, Walkeshwar, Breach Candy, Pedder Road, Kemps Corner and others.

SOUTH MUMBAI SNOBBERY

No one speaks Indian languages in the elite areas of South Mumbai at home, among friends or on the streets and funnily many of the educated middle classes who reside in the poorer areas of Mumbai have recently begun imitating the westernized trend initiated in the swank areas of South Mumbai more than a century ago and these middle classes insist on speaking English most of the times at home or elsewhere.

When we run into them, we laugh at their attempts to speak English since in most cases their accent/diction is way below the acceptable standards.

They also attempt to dress in high fashion and end up buying the cheap imitations and lack the poise to carry off the clothes and at times when we see them in the stylish restaurants of the Taj celebrating special occasions like a marriage anniversary we are amused to see them ordering the least expensive dishes on the menu and pathetic lack of table manners and knowledge of global foods.

LOL.

People living in the posh areas of South Mumbai have money to burn and spend the money like water. Though I am used to this atmosphere since birth yet at times I feel bad that when most people in India lack the basic necessities the wealthy back here have not a care in the world and lack concern for the needy. The poor/middle classes are treated like shit in India. These thoughts sober me and make me somewhat restrained in everything that I do.

UNCLE FORMER,

Have I told you that I have very strong memories of certain aspects of my past incarnations with the accompanying sounds, smells, personalities and sights coming at times into my consciousness?

I have been getting mystical experiences of various kinds while in the waking consciousness since age 4 or so.

Often I get a vision of a future event of myself or of someone close to me and after sometime the vision fulfills itself in exact detail.

I had a detailed vision of the death of my Dad 2 years before he died and in it I saw all the minute details including the cause of his death, the hospital he'd be admitted to, the behavior I would display, the reaction of my mom and sister and so on.

And, interestingly, 24 hours before he could die, I saw a force formation of death hovering over him and so I told him that he would die tomorrow.

He died within 18 hours of my warning and in the same manner that I had seen in the vision 2 years prior to his demise.

Well, anyway.

I can come out of my body at will. The yogic experiences come on me spontaneously these days without me making any effort to get into an inner state and so on.

OBE & DEATH

OBE and death follow the same pattern - a sudden rush of energy in the upward direction to the top of the head, a fuzzy consciousness during the ascent, a friction felt when the energy exits the body from the top of the head region, a sudden clarity of consciousness in the discarnate state and a relaxation of the tension of the energy field once it gets outside the body.

To overcome the fear of death, master the OBE process if one has the inner capacity to execute a willed OBE with practice and so when death comes the process of coming out of the body will be familiar, free of fear and tension-free.
