These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

(Yes, yes,this is nowhere near the poetry of the original. But to be really honest, raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens are not my favourite things, though, potentially I suppose there is no reason to dislike them. The actual lyrics can be found here.)

The youtube video of the original song.

Feluda’s exploits and Bertie’s adventures,

Old rock music and classic war movies,

Smell of newspapers fresh in the morning,

These are a few of my favourite things

Sandwich from Cool Joint and breakfast at Woody’s,

Spicy hot gravies and white sevai* noodles,

Open Butter- Masal-Dosa from Adiga’s,

These are a few of my favourite things

Lazing on Elliot’s beach and dinner at Pupil,

Lots of cold beer on a hot afternoon,

Side dishes served in the bars of Chennai,

These are a few of my favourite things

IPL cheerleaders and CSK victories,

Ample Mallu girls in off-white dresses,

Robin Scherbatsky in any episode,

These are a few of my favourite things

When an exam cups, When the beer is flat,

When I lose money on F&O Nifty,

I simply remember my favorite things,

And then I don’t feel so baaaaad.

(P to the S:

1. Sevai refers to a noodle like dish made in Tamil Nadu. I am not going into those restaurant type descriptions - "a scrumptuous lentil based blah blah". I have never benefited from those descriptions. Has anyone ever?

2. Cool Joint is in Jayanagar 4th Block and Woody's is in JP Nagar. Funnily, I went to Woody's only once while at IIM. But I went there almost every time I went to Bangalore before that.

3. The Adiga's I am referring to is in Bannarghatta Road, near IIM. There is supposed to be different Adiga'ses (?) run by different brothers, but I have never noticed what this one is. (!)

4. Pupil is near the Besant Nagar Beach. You will find it, IF you don't know of it.

5. There is a really cool bar near Pavithra's in Jayanagar 4th Block. It is called B-15. Slightly hard to find. There is a staircase near Pavithra's which looks slisha shady, but it leads to B-15 on the 2nd floor. Fantastic music systems but the music gets kind of loud and is not a place to go to if you want to talk.

5. Almost every bar in Chennai serves free side dishes. This is for the gloating Bangaloreans who are like "Oh, Oh, Bangalore is the pub city." Yes, you may have pseud non-TASMAC-like shops where one can go buy alcohol without feeling pained at the dirty surroundings, maybe you can get all new beers and Smirnoff with ease. But we have free and unlimited side dishes in our bars. Yes, free and unlimited. So ha and haha :P

Sounds better if you try to sing it like Julie Andrews !

Gloating Bangloreans ?? - LOL
You know, it was only when I went out of Bangalore(after 18 yrs) that I came to know that B'lore is a "pub city" !
