The Funny leave letter template

Ajith and Dad partied on Saturday for apparently no reason, drank heavily, puked all night and the following day, consequently giving himself and me a headache. Today being Monday, he is off the hangover and still not ready for work. While contemplating on a reason to take off , as *hangover* doesn’t sound decent in a time of recession and lay-off, he tells me about the standard leave letter template that he and his friends used during their school days and THE CLASSIC LEAVE LETTER that one of his friend wrote due to poor English writing skills. It goes like this

Respected Sir,
As I am suffering from ---------, I am unable to attend school for ----- days. Please grant me leave for the same.

Yours faithfully

Respected Sir,
As I am suffering from MY SISTER”S MARRIAGE, I am unable to attend school for 3 days. Please grant me leave for the same.

Yours faithfully

Trip to Gurukul in Adi’s words

On 5th Feb I went to gurukul. I went by bus and it was a long journey to gurukul. In the bus I was sharing food like biscuits , popcorn, chips and many more. As soon as we got down from the bus,we were shocked to see 12 huts , two of which were huge. We even saw 1000‘s of plants and trees. Then we went for breakfast .They served dosa with carrot slices on top. Next, some actors came to teach us how to act. They introduced themselves and we introduced ourselves. Then our main actor teacher separated the groups. I was in group A. We played lot of games and they were very good and interesting for us. After that we had lunch. For lunch we ate papad ,rice chapathi , chana, and curd. After that we painted. Our group was told a story. According to that we had to make a portrait. of the story. Our story was the clever jackal or the foolish lion. The teacher said that mine was the best painting but I did not do it fast, I was only second. Then we played games again and started learning how to act. Just then the other group came to see our act. The lead teacher said that, both the teams won. We were very happy. Then they showed their act . Their act was about the two swans and turtle. It was very nice. Next we played a little more games. Then we had our snacks. I had two cups of coffee. Then we took some plants like kacha mango, Actually I only took kacha mango. Then we went back to our school by bus. But when we were returning, it was not good because I hit my forehead and teeth on the bus handle. Then we settled in our school waiting for our parents. As my father came, we had greater fun in the car because I had my friends with me and we got our own bingo chips. I went back home and had a nice hot bath. Then I slept. I had my dinner and that was the time when my mother typed this for me.

P.S : New Horizon Gurukul,is a nature campus meant to provide a whole new learning experience for children. Classrooms without blackboards. Teachers without textbooks. Students without uniforms. And no ding-dong to remind them of break time.

Did you hear about it…

After all that scandal of beating up women in the pub, Shri Ram Sena is upto something interesting .They’re going to drag around priests, and forcibly marry off couples found ‘dating, expressing their love or cozying up to each other’.
Check that link

Wow! What a blessing for couples who are in love against parent’s wishes. They just need to show up hand in hand in a pub in Mangalore or Banaglore on Valentine’s day and our angel Muthalik will get them married. I guess this man is a blessing in disguise for love birds struggling to get married.
When I first heard about a pub in Mangalore being attacked and women beaten up and pushed out , I was angry , shocked, shaken ….It is sad when a lady can’t sit down for a drink with her friends (be it another man or women) just because we are women. I don’t know where to start opposing. Some junkies in the name of moral policing is out there pulling hair and dragging women. I call this molestation by some weird men who are plain jealous that no ladies would like to have a drink with hooligans like them.
I wonder if Shri Ram would approve of such behavior and I pray they go to hell.
