Not just another 55-er !!!

November 21, 2011

This should the be first Malayalam 55-er !! No???  But, I am atleast sure that this the first Malayalam 55-er written in English ! 😛 😛

Jeevida Bhaaram

Njan : Owwwwwchhhh
Amma : Endhu patttee?
Njan : Kaii onnu …aaaahhhh …ulukki…deivameyyy !
Amma : Nalla vedana undennu thonnu; idu enganey sambhavichu?
Njan (sahadharminiye nokkiyum kondu) : Endu chayyaanaa, ‘chumalil jeevida bhaaram’, ennalley? Aaaahhh… Appo kaiyum naduvumokke idakku idupole ulukkiyennu varum !! oowwww !


Below is the literal translation of the above 55-er; the whole ‘burden’ part is part of a popular Malayalam song and so the translation isn’t going to make as much sense as the original. But, for the benefit of my readers, here it is : (Oh, btw, the translation is also in 55 words  )

Burden* of life

Me : Owwwwwchhhh
Mom : Oh, what happened?
Me : My hand…..aaahhhh…its sprained…oh godd !
Mom : It’s paining badly, I guess; how did this happen?
Me (looking at the Missus) : What to do! They say, ‘The burden* of life is often taken on the shoulders’, right? Aaahhh..So,  at times, the hand and back would sprain;  just like this! Owwwww !


*Burden here refers to responsibilities only and so, please don’t come up with your own interpretations 😛 😛 😛

    • November 21, 2011 9:12 pm

    😯 😯 😯 I am not going to exercise my Freedom of Fingers at this moment on this post; coz my brain is deducing too many possibilities for such an accident to happen 😳

    • November 21, 2011 4:21 pm

      Yeah I hope the ‘shop’ owners are also providing him with health insurance :mrgreen:

    • November 21, 2011 9:14 pm

      LOL, its time somebody gave me a bravery award here in the blogworld ! 😀 😀

      do they consider these posts for Param Veer ?? 😉

      • November 22, 2011 11:29 pm

        You need all the award man for tolerating some of our nasty comments 😥 I am planning to write an Open Letter to the Award Committee describing your patience and River sized Heart. sniff …sniff

        Ps: I think I ate something really bad for my breakfast 🙄
        Vim : Is that why you are sniffing? garlic??? 🙄

    • November 21, 2011 11:22 pm

      😯 😳

      Sakshi partner… you forgot to close my eyes and ears….

      • November 22, 2011 7:47 am

        She was busy closing her own, crafty kutty !!!

      • November 22, 2011 11:24 pm

        Sigh!! now only if I could get hold of you……..coz you seem to appear and disappear like SRK’s movies these days 😛

        Vim : Like !

        • November 22, 2011 11:29 pm

          Wht ever happend to RUM DIARY i wonder 😀 😀

          Vim : Double Like !

          • November 22, 2011 11:35 pm

            at the moment the bottle Deppu Deva sipped from and his sexy Boxer shorts are being auctioned off in Christy’s 🙂

            Ps: i heard the G.One costume is the new trend in Scarecrow Designs? 👿

            Vim : Sooper Like !

            • November 22, 2011 11:41 pm

              ..and the nasty chemical extracted from jack sparrow’s dirty costume is now used by the kerala police to stop mobs instead of tear gas!!

    Hahaaaaa…am coming here after a while, glad to see the sense of humour prevails!:)

    • November 21, 2011 9:19 pm

      🙂 🙂 🙂 keep coming, I am just not posting that many these days anyway ! 😀

  5. November 21, 2011 12:20 pm

    Congratulations for taking the time and effort to make sure that the recount in both languages have only 55 words…sheer genius!! 😛 😛

    BTW, the recount in English does have more than 55 words (counting all the words, not just the dialogues of course). I HAD to make sure… can never be sure with you!! :mrgreen:

    You are so out of inspiration that you are falling back on the same wife-woes to create posts?? Sigh… 🙄

    • November 21, 2011 2:24 pm

      Ashwathy you have got so much time that you actually cross checked the word count? *amazed* and i somehow feel these stories still bring a chuckle and we know he is alive & kicking. In fact we should thank god that he isn’t onto posting pictures 😀

      Vim : you should also thank god because I dont post a series of ‘mash-ed’ potatoes !! 😀 😀 😀 😀

      • November 21, 2011 4:19 pm

        If this is “UK” english then I may have to agree with Undakanni over here :mrgreen:

        • November 21, 2011 4:24 pm

          I suggest you try out yoga to release the pressure of ur burden. You can start off with ‘shavaasanam’. 😀

          • November 21, 2011 11:20 pm

            Bratie!!!! Before you go about telling Vimmuuu Saar about ur evil asanaas…. Come, let the voodoo dool introduce you to garlic-stench-asaanaa…. 😈

            It’s for deep breathing, now take that nose clip off…

    • November 21, 2011 9:30 pm

      @ Ash : Never knew the Aaah’s and Oooo’s in the post are considered as words !! 😀 😀 😀

      @ Brat : Yeah, man; probably UK education !!! what to do ! 😉

    • November 21, 2011 11:18 pm

      Kanni sis… better wife woes that all that singing he does!!! (sometimes in female voices and all 👿 )

      Can pull his legs on posts like this…. but if he sings….. I’m at a loss 🙄

      • November 22, 2011 7:49 am

        @ crafty : let me try being swarr here ….”awwwwwwwwww” !!! 😀 😀 😀

        • November 22, 2011 11:19 am

          First of all, be grateful. That one comment of mine increased so many comments….when Crafty Bratu and yourself replied…I increased the number of comments to ur depleting comments in the post 😛

          Vim : Ohhh Ashwathy !!! What do I do without you ?? You are and always were the sole reason for the number of comments in V-lokam !! People have always visited this space only to read your comment, so please leave atleast that one comment of yours!!! 😛 😛 Btw, if you didnt know it yet, these days I write only for myself and gone are the days when I used to worry about the number of comments my post receives. I have grown up as a blogger, so honestly, I dont care a damn! 😛 😛 😛

          And secondly, atleast my mish-mashes have some variety with different episodes and stories. All you do is blame your wife for all your troubles and how marriage has destroyed your life…..quite monotonous…you need to think of something new! 🙄

          Vim : LOL, considering the fact that my last anti marriage post was way back in Feb, I dont think this is an issue with the rest of my regulars! and never thought people are at gunpoint to read my posts or leave their comments or even count the number of words 😀 😀 😀 Again, I write for myself, so honestly, I dont care a damn ! 😛 😛 😛

          And don’t quote Swaram for saying an ‘awww’. Don’t be a chicken…own up to your own ‘aww” :mrgreen:

          Vim : dont quote, eh? Ok. from now on, I shall take permission from you to quote fellow bloggers, movie artists, my neighbor, my cousins fiance, etc. 😉 a mail or call, which do you prefer ? 😛 😛

          @Cunny sis: Sooper tight hugs!! Good to see you here 🙂

          Vim : Eyyy, I named her Cunny ! Dont be a goat…own up to your own nicknames :mrgreen:

          @Smita: Oh yea….if he started posting pics….all we’d see are narcissistic side profiles….god alone knows what he is staring at outside the frame of the picture 😉 😛

          Vim : Your god wouldnt care a damn, ‘cuz I am an atheist ! 😛
          @ smita : you know what, I always wondered what Sarcasm meant 😀 😀 😀 😀

          @Brat: Shavasana should be a good way to start yoga. BTW have you practised it a lot? You must be doing the voodoo drool (quoting Cunny sis here( more often rite?

          Vim : Ok, so you can quote! oh ya, I forgot, you dont have anything to do with ‘chicken’ na? you are a vegetarian ! 😀 😀 😀

          Vim : Btw, since this is turning out to be a rediff comment space, I rest my case and I am going to follow a saying which I heard recently from someone close “Ignorance is bliss” !! 😀 😀 😀

          • November 22, 2011 11:12 pm

            @vimmuuu sigh! I guess am bad at sarcasm or was my sarcasm not sarcastic enough? Bugger, blog more often so that i can try my sarcasm skills more (am sure there’ll be ample opportunities ;-)) often and learn to be effectively sarcastic.

            Vim : LOL !! We should write another post together on “how to be effectively sarcastic” 😀 😀 😀 !!! sigh! those were the days! 😛

            • November 23, 2011 11:29 am

              For last 2 days I attended a training prg called “7 Habit of Effective People” I am sure I can design a trg program on same lines called

              “7 ways & Mor to be Effectively Sarcastic” 😉

              Gamr for a Joint Post?

          • November 22, 2011 11:47 pm

            sniff…sniff…@Ash you killed two bloggers with that one stone of a comment!! I thought monster commenters like some of us were solely responsible for increasing comments in this highly addictive bathroom? 😥

            @Vimmuuu (see I even wrote all the alphabets correctly) potte da magane 🙄 …..being grateful is anyway not going to help you with all of us already married Bloggers na? 😉
            Vim : LOL, you winked at me !! and your hubby isnt aware of it, rt? So, theres still chance, na? 😉 to you too ! 😀

            • November 22, 2011 11:55 pm

              im also joining u yakhshi… how could he say something like tht to us..thts it im packing my bags and moving over to a new blog…Hmmpphh… nanmi venam..nannii!!

              :Rage: grrr!!

              Vim : adu evidey kittum ??? ee nanni ennu parayunna saadanam !! 😛

        • November 22, 2011 9:16 pm

          @vimmuu Awwww is so old fashion now..nowadays its “Swaram likes this!!”

          • November 22, 2011 9:32 pm

    • November 21, 2011 11:12 pm


      Tanishka… that sprain might just be from Vimmuuu Saar’s school bag & water bottle!

      *has taken chappals in hand, and is running, fast receding into a dot*

      • November 22, 2011 7:57 am

        @ Tan : yeah yeah ! I cant tell you will face the same situation, but atleast your future hubby will !!! 😛 😛

    Me: I read this post and laughed, and then cried because I miss you!
    Vimmuuu: Oh no! This is bad…Your nose is running….
    Me: Yes, as usual… it happens. Now lend me your sleeve…

    vim : I am all sleeveless now crafty kutty ! yeah, ‘cuz of you ! 😀 😀 😀

    This is sooper! Marriage = Newly found blogging fodder! *taking notes*

    Vim : HE is gonna come to blogging ?? 😀 😀 😀

    That’s it, Mr. Birdie better deliver on this front! (chey Vimmuuu saar, stap thinking what you’re thinking!)

    Vim : Chey, I almost thought 😛 😛 😛

    I am not checking if my comment is a 55-er, Kanni sis will do it! :mrgreen: 😆

    Vim : Again, pun unintended !!! But I checked, its only 45 words ! Qualified ! 😀 Missed your comments !!!! Miss those days !!! I so want a time machine now !!!!

    • November 22, 2011 11:21 am

      Yes 😥 somebody turn the clock back. Bring back those days when Cunny sis comes dancing into a post with a song, claiming first and hitchy fighting for second and a host of others following…. sigh

    • November 22, 2011 9:35 pm

        • November 23, 2011 7:02 am

  8. November 22, 2011 9:21 am

    You know what, after just one attempt, I realized that they only “look” light. 😉

    • November 22, 2011 7:15 pm

  9. November 22, 2011 3:24 pm

    Calling out to “Lakshmi….!!!!!!!!!! “

    • November 22, 2011 7:15 pm

      Who’s that ? I mean, seriously ! who is lakshmi ?

      • November 22, 2011 10:12 pm

        It is the name i’ve given ur wife!

        • November 23, 2011 6:57 am

          So, you all have given her names also ? I will tell her that you are calling her names 😛 😛 😛

  10. November 22, 2011 11:06 pm

    Ahem! That comment has taken quite a trail nd tail. As far as the 55er is considered, well! well! i’m sure Laxmi must have tried to feed you well but you would have for sure refused the delicacies on the pretext of either dieting or saying she doesn’t cook well resulting in weakness & eventually the sprain. But the bugger that you are, you’ve put the burden of your follies on wifey. Laxmi, jamaalghota in his meal next time. lets see how many times can he carry his own weight inside his favorite place in the world 😀

    • November 23, 2011 6:57 am

      Yeah, tell me about it ! So, you sprain your muscles because of dieting or refusing food ??? I should meet your biology teacher ! 😀 😀 😀 😀 How come I never experienced any sprain during my bachelorhood days when I always in dieting..huh? bolo bolo !!!

      Heyy, I know what you meant by my fav place ! dont bring poor bathroom into this ! only place that gives me a peace of mind 😛 😛 😛

      • November 23, 2011 11:26 am

        Trust you to not understand…let me explain


        See, no biology here!!!!

        And you must have experienced sparin during your bachelor days as well but since you had nobody but youself to blamed for it you never blogged about it. But now you have a scapegoat 😛

        Vim : Weakness and sprain are biology ! they are not chemistry or geography, na ??? Oh ya, bachelor days, I did have sprain; thats when I wrote all those anti-women posts 😀 😀 😀 😀

        • November 23, 2011 2:35 pm

          how u doin Smita? Long time no fight? 😛

          • November 24, 2011 11:03 am

            Hi Brat!!!!

            Ya, I have become a verrrry peacefulperson these days you see 😛

            Vim : Peace and you??? you meant peas, rt !!! 😛

  11. November 24, 2011 10:25 pm

    so ok a lot of days have gone .. so tell us what actually happened 🙂

    and listen you do know what they say the WIfe is always right 🙂

    • December 6, 2011 8:16 am

      I thought it was “Customer is always right ” 😀 😀 😀

  12. November 25, 2011 2:56 pm

    And dialogues like this is exactly what’ll get you more sprained necks and arms in future too! 😀

    • December 6, 2011 8:15 am

      Welcome to Vlokam !!!

      Ok, is that a curse or a warning 😛 😛

  13. November 26, 2011 3:06 am

    Wow.. great to see you again bro and the comment section too.. total fun 🙂

    LOL!!!! 😆 Tell that to your wife.. you will get more sprains 🙂 🙂

    So When r u coming to Chennai???????????????? 🙄

    • November 26, 2011 3:06 am

      Forgot to tell you.. even Rain arrived in Chennai.. 😀 😀

  14. November 28, 2011 2:25 pm

    theres a better explanation for that sprain
    – oru penmani ithile nadannu poyal – ida kazhuthin pidi vaadham – vaadham

    Husband Comes home from “ART OF LIVING” SATSANG. He greets his Wife & lifts her up,Then carries her around the house with a SMILE. Wife is so surprised & she asks:”Did ravi shankar preach something about being Romantic today? He said: “No. Swamy told us that We must carry our burdens & sorrows with a SMILE..:p;)……….

    • December 6, 2011 8:14 am

      Is this really your comment ? I dont think so !! Eby hacked all your accounts, alle ??? Or is it that you finally realised how cruel you wife’s are ! 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀

  15. November 29, 2011 12:38 am

    hahahaha! Malayalam 55-er in English aadyaayittanu ariyunnathum vaayikkunathum!! Super! 😆

    So if you got an ‘ulukkal’ because of the ‘burden of life’ on your shoulders, I dread to even imagine the plight Laxmi must be going through for having the added burden of mending a twisted person like you.. 😈 👿 😛 😀

    • December 6, 2011 8:13 am

      Oyyy, you all temme something…you are my friend or hers !!! :mrgreen:

  16. December 6, 2011 6:59 am

    😀 😀 😀 😀
    paavam wifey of yours !!!

    • December 6, 2011 8:12 am

      I got sprained and she gets all the sympathy ! Hmmpphh !!

  17. December 8, 2011 7:02 am

    LoL! LONG TIME since I’ve visited the blog world. It’s nice to know you’re still around. 🙂

    Now regards to your post. ((((((((Hugs!)))))))) You’re responsibilities have increased soo much that you ended up spraining your back and hand. 😐

  18. December 29, 2011 5:14 pm

    The sprain and pains seem to be because of something else 😛
