now we're getting somewhere

It looks as though I've gotten myself a column in an new monthly Indian magazine based out of Chicago. It's generally aimed at people in the 20-35 year old demographic. The magazine comes out in June/July and it leaves me with two pressing issues which you the reader at home can help me figure out:
  1. What do I call my column?
  2. What should I write about in the first issue?
Hopefully if all goes well the comments of 2 people will determine my journalistic future...

"shake it"
and
write about how desi music should not include rapping

two ideas... you could deal with the societal pressure and cultural morays of a youth brought up in an environment based on indin values from 2-3 decades ago which doesn't exist except for a pipe dream reality of expats...

or maybe something about the fact that meat filled samosas are the best.

shits, i actually like shake-it...but i think it may be....drum roll..."Sandas Musings"...but that's just the lead candidate right now. then i can dig into those important meat filled samosas issues

shits! quite enthu you are vivek. yes you very much are the namer of it...the real question is, what is the right anglo-spelling of sundas?

it is:
-sundas
-sundaas?
-sandas?
-sandaas?

Rush said...

It's totally sandaas...so that when non-desis read it, it gets pronounced "sand-ass".

Looking forward to reading it!
Keep up the ridiculous humour.

i dont get it.
what are sandas ?

Shakes said...

"sandas" (or however the right anglo-spelling is) is like hindi slang for toilet. i guess it's sorta like saying "the shitter". so literally "sundas musings" would be like my thoughts to read about while sitting on the shitter
