Ramesh Babu and the Curious Case of Sindoor – Part I
Ramesh Babu is just not getting the whole deal about this ‘Ek chutki sindoor’ business. His girlfriend has been bugging him about it for a while now.
Sindoor is red. Sindoor is powdery. Sindoor is trouble if it drops on his white kurta, he thinks.
No.No.Sindoor is God’s blessing. Sindoor is the crown on a wife’s head. Sindoor is each woman’s dream. Ek chutki Sindoooor , the girlfriend insists.
It is at this juncture of the story that we need to explain something to Ramesh Babu and help him out of his predicament.
Dear Ramesh Babu, you’re missing the point here. The girlfriend neither wants the sindoor nor its crowning glory. All she wants is your surname and a debit card to your savings account.

Happy weekend everybody!
