Q and A

A conversation between ‘Quixotic’ and ‘Abstemious’

Q: Why don’t you add an extra alphabet to your name? Make it Suchiitra or Suchitraa. That will add up to a number 9 and you may go to heaven. Not literally ofcourse (hee hee)), but materially and spiritually
(har har har! yuk yuk yuk! A la Phantom Mandrake Archie et all)

A: Because I don’t believe in all this.

Q: You don’t have to believe my dear . Look at Kavita-she became Kaveataaaa and Kiran became Kirrrooon on the recommendation of their numerologist/astrologer/palmist/psychic tarot card reader and it has really helped them. You don’t have to believe it-you just have to do it. I’m telling you it works. You will be rich beyond your imagination. See, Suchitra adds up to a number 8, which is Shani or Saturn. Your birth number is 9-incomaptible with 8 or Jupiter. So currently there are bound to be obstacles in your way of acquiring wealth and riches.

A: I’m not sure rich is what I want.

Q: Then what do you want?

A: I want to be happy

Q: But the only path to happiness is through wealth. Don’t you see? Wealth creates mental and spiritual health. Everything else be damned
(he he he, har har har, yuk yuk yuk-a la Phantom/ Mandrake/Archie et all)

A: No I don’t. See…because… not to pooh pooh what your saying or anything, but the only two times I tried it, the effects were disastrous. The first time-I added a K and made my name Suchitra. K for my music album Zindagi, it was a mega, thunderous, resounding flop. The biggest and only flop of my musical career. I still haven’t recovered from it. Inspite of the title track being composed by the word renowned international composer Lord Andrew Llyod Webber

Q: Maybe that was the problem. It wasn’t Indian enough and therefore spiritually lacking. You don’t need to go international-but tap into your own essence which is very Indian.

A: Hmnnn….the second time I changed my name configuration I added a Kapur to my passport. My personal life went up in flames within 3 months of that and I relocated from England to India. It was a really bad time.

Q: No No, that must have been something to do with the position of the planets at that time. You were actually ahead of your time .And besides the time to go international is now! Havent you heard how everybody is talking these days. Film Directors are wanting to go international, Corporate’s are going spiritual, and all the Indians are getting really rich. I’m telling you it’s a good time NOW. Add an extra I to your name….or…okay if you don’t want to do that at least paint your entrance green or blue. It will attract good fortune

A: I don’t much care for the colour green. And my entrance is already blue.

Q: Then paint your south west corner red and orange

A: My southwest corner is already red and orange. I painted it that colour myself a few months ago. How does that help?

Q: If your southwest corner is red and orange you will attract love and get a boyfriend. Don’t tell me you haven’t acquired a boyfriend? He should have come into your life within six weeks of painting your south west corner red and orange

A: I painted it red and orange because I had an idea in my head that those colours matched.

Q: No-I am sure you subconsciously did it to attract a boyfriend…Don’t tell me it’s not true. Why are you hiding things from me? I thought I was your friend!

A: Ofcourse you are my friend. But do you think there is no other ‘kaam dhanda’ in life other than attaching oneself to a man? I have better things to do with my time.

Q: Okay don’t get uptight. Relax. Do a havan. I know this pujari who is a kind of ghost buster. He removes all evil forces from your environment. It’s possible that your progress is being hampered by some lurking spirits who have an agenda different from yours. You need to eliminate them.

A: huh?

Q: Okay okay…I know you don’t believe in all this but I’m only trying to help. This ghostbuster by the way will also remove the dark circles around your eyes which is nothing but a dark energy in your life

A: My dark circles are inherited. My mother has them, and I quite like them actually. Makes me feel intense and intelligent

Q: That means a dark energy surrounds your mother too.

A: My grandmother had it too. It’s a family characteristic…I have no problems with it

Q: You may not have a problem with it but it’ obvious that it’s a negative energy surrounding your life. I suggest you get a fish task. That’s very good fengshui/vastu.
Atleast try it…

A: But I feel depressed when the fish die. I can’t deal with all that.Besides I’m vegetarian-dead fish are of no use to me.

Q: Okay forget that. But do one thing. Please promise me you wont say no. I recommend to you the kerela ayurvedic massage. It’s administered very close to your house too. I promise you it will open your third eye and your life will change. I’m going to give my friend a call just now and fix an appointment for you

A: But I don’t want my life to change…I’m quite allright as I …

Q: Oh just do it for a friend! You do consider me your friend don’t you? AND don’t forget to give me your feedback. And please don’t forget to blog about it. I want my name to come up everytime anyone types in ‘indian massage’ on the internet

You see I’m flying off to America next week to try and get a patent on it .

A: Huh?

Q: It’ called the “Third eye- opening ayurvedic massage-direct from India” I have a really good feeling about this…after all if they can patent haldi/turmeric and forms of yoga…at last this is more innovative…

A: Are you serious? But this massage is a centuries old tradition…

Q: Ofcourse I am serious. And just to be sure nothing hampers my progress I am adding the @ sign to my patent

“Third eye opening Ayurvedic Massage –direct from @ India”
Cool na?

A: But why the @?????

Q: Arrey-havent you heard about the Chinese baby they named @? He grabbed world headlines for weeks. You may say what’s in a name …because your abstemious…temperate and self denying…but I believe a name is everything. EVERYTHING! Do you understand? And I want to grab the bull by its horns. So I’m adding the @. After all we Indians are a more spiritual nation than the Chinese… so why should they be the ones getting rich…

(Hee Hee hee, har har har, yuk yuk yuk- a la Phantom/Mandrake/Archie et all)

A: Oh!…. I see… All right…WHATEVER….!!!!!

Q: And trust me…just add another I or A to your name… Look at all those fellas…Nigam became Niiigaaaam and that Shobha became Shoobbhhaaaa….and see how their fortunes changed. I’m telling you it’s not superstition. Its science! Pure and Simple. The science of the divine cosmos! Just a matter of time before we Indians prove it, and it moves from the realm of metaphysics to physics!!

A: Yeah… sure thing Quixotic…. Wwwhhhaateeevvvveeerrrrr!

(Phhhewwww!!!   Yaaaawwwn!…. Zzzzzzttttttt…)

  1. The article makes interesting reading.This numerology stunt
    has worked in several cases and has flopped in many other
    ones.If the person concerned has no faith in it it is bound
    to fail as his or her hormones resist and the person gets
    rigid and inflexible and all actions take effect from
    that intransigence.The expected good may not turn out
    but no harm can arise from the change.All such harm are
    due to your own actions.
    with this assurance you can try suchitrakrishnamurti and
    see what happens.nothing bad will happen at all.If it
    turns fortiunate retain the change.Otherwise revert to
    the original after a trial period!

  2. Though these things are very popular india i think its the crutch that insecure people use to deal with bad times. How can an A or an I change a persons fortune?
    and all these tarot readers and numerologists are the ones getting rich-rather than the people they are feeding this rubbish to

  3. suchitra
    does it bother you that inspite of your writings your poetry music and art all guys like nikhil want is to see hot pictures of you?

  4. Suchitra,

    I think you dont have many tasks to do these day. Since last few days, your blogs are of worth useless kinda. There is nothing like a class act in al these. I think either you dont have any tasks to do these days or in deep dielemma.

    The man who was suggesting looks greedy. Anyone can say like such proofless talk to anyone.The thing is that he is suggesting SUCHITRA. I heard people change the fate through the effort but Bollywood people want to change the fate by name.

    It’ll be good if you write something special on your blogs. If you keep on publshing such things..I would say..days are not far when followers will stop visting the Blogs.

    Keep smiling


  5. Abhay’s views are totally wrong.Suchitra writes articles on lot of issues.She picks simple occasions of life to highlight the issues.It is a blog and not a newspaper article.Blogs should be like this only.



  7. hahah…too gud article suchithra[:D…cudn’t help laughing!!I was laughing so loud forgetting the fact that I was actually on my work and my supervisor was standing just behind me…

  8. Hi,
    What someone means by class? Is it not a classic peace of stire ? Fudel fundamentasit brains try to ignore daily life incidents and people . It shows your total awareness as an writer .
    Enjoy and share all your experiences.



  9. Dear Vishal,

    It’ll be good if you read and understand the concept of BLOGs rather than to advice other. The BLOGS are the place where any individual connects to the world by sharing his/her views. Anyone can reply to the writer against the Blog. But, its not a good practice the repliers/posters start discussing among themself on any reply. This is BLOG not a DISCUSSION Forum. The reply against me or to anyone is expected from Author only.

    And , Its not good to say only good words.Try to accept the hard truth man..

    Learn the basic difference between BLOG/DISCSSION FORUM.

    AS I dont have ur personal ID, i am posting 1st and last time on the BLOG.Please use ur email ID for such discussions.

  10. Hi Abhay

    who cares whether this is your first or last time on this blog-we are regulars here and open to expressing our views without unwarranted critcism of each other-especially the author

    As it is obvious from your two comments-you obviously have no better tasks to do which is why you keep coming back here either to criticize others or defend youself. You otherwise have no valuable individual viewpoint

    show some class man-get lost and go to some place where your stupid views are welcome

  11. To All,
    After reading above comments,i would like to clarify without taking anyone’s name.
    A blog is a place where an individual can interact with himself or with others and the world can also see it. So things that cant be written in a newspaper or said on TV can be found on a blog.Amitabh Bacchan uses this medium very effectively.It is alltogether a different journey,a different place.It is very important to understand the condition of heart of the writer when he/she writes a blog.It must be genuine.Whether proper Grammar is used or not is immaterial.The state of the heart should be understood by the reader.The reader should feel connected to the writer.That is the beauty of a blog.Suchitra is one of a kind.Normally,she writes with her heart.She used a life situation in this particular blog to take us to a different world.It is also important to note that she has posted this under category:Timepass.So,it was meant for fun.
    So,i hope readers will not fight and enjoy reading her blog.


  12. Ha ha ha …
    Atleast I am not in the race. I said some hard liners which were taken very seriously by few…In fact, I created a so called Controversy..which was never meant for.

    I am enjoying.

  13. After reading the above conversation I want to tell you something. Everybody wants to be happy. For that you are doing the things well. But if you do better than ‘well’ you’ll get happy and ther by you’re internal energy increases and ain turn it brings all satisfaction, wealth…etc. But it brings the most greatest thing that is “Brahmanandam”

  14. Well that was absolutely howlarious!

    Suchitra, it was creative and much diff than usual stuff…Keep it up.

    BTW do u actually read all feedbacks on ur blogsite?

  15. I plan to go home early today and paint my entrance green or blue as I want wealth :-)))))..Did your friend mention what shade of blue or a mix of both or any exact shade of green?

  16. Hey,

    I’m spending my time here for the children of Haiti.

    I’m doing this for a non-profit organization that is devoted to giving time to
    creating oppurtunities for the kids in haiti. If anyone wants to give money then do so here:

    [url=http://universallearningcentre.org]Donate to Haiti[/url] or Help Haiti

    They give kids in Haiti a learning environment.

    Please check them out, they’re real.

    Anything would be appreciated
