Why is #narendramodi  silent on scams?  Is it confidence, consternation or confusion? http://j.mp/mad150701

A neighbor who is also an old codger - a 'dusht' (a 'Grimm'- for non-Indians) lamented that his window A/C 1 (of his 3 A/Cs) needs 'service', and no A/C servicemen were willing right now (today).  Problem was his American (naturalized) Son and family are arriving today.
Asked me to take a look (why ppl assume that a 'shippie' and 'ITknowlegeable' person can solve any problems).
Anyway I took a look for #IndoUS  relations and this is what I found.  A toothbrush and 1/2 hour made the A/C alright.

+ted kelly :lol: I love 'Old Codgers' - they are actually a font of wisdom and insights - most of my knowledge is from listening to them!
But this particular one is a 'Grimm'.  
For e.g.,
he chases neighbourhood kids with a stick when they scamp around the apartment complex - saying they 'disturb' him and his old woman.

he continues to bad mouth me even after when it was I who rushed the auntie (his old codgie?) to hospital when she broke her hip (in 2013 when my mom also had a dislocated shoulder) at 1300 hrs and he informed me at only 1700 hrs; And used my influence in the local hospital (meanwhile) to retain one of Chennai's topmost Orthopedic Surgeons (since I know him personally) to diagnose her on admission (BTW both his sons are naturalized Americans - no blame to them).

he has the gall to shove an invitation for his Grandson's 'thread' ceremony (sort of baptism) to me on the roadside for 8th July 2015.  To add insult to injury, he even tells me that I'm not expected to partake the lunch, but to just show my 'face', for his sake.

he tries (this should shock YOU) to feed a neighbours pet dog (a lab) with the 'hugs&kisses' chocklates which his American son brings him in good faith - only after I warned him that I'll report him to local SPCA stopped him (I think) - Not many in Chennai/India know that chocolates are harmful to dogs.

Please don't start me on this particular old codger.

#BobbyJindalIsSoWhite‪   trending on Twitter. Here are my favs on #BobbyJindal  bid for POTUS.
He couldn't win a spelling bee if he tried.
He has never been randomly selected at the airport.
He feels Ketchup is too 'spicy'.
The Indian equivalent to "Uncle Tom" will now be "Uncle Bobby".
He asks his own parents to clarify Dot or Feather.
He is not a naturalized citizen but a pasteurized one.
He mispronounces his own name.
He says 'skedule' instead of 'shedule' for schedule.

Yes indeed, very many. The highest office held would be VP or US Senate (depending on how you view the VP job)

I think we should rename it 'Trick or Treat' theory; a treat for wealthy people and a trick for poor people :^/
