Last April I was at my native place Alipurduar (gateways to the heavenly hilly abode in North Bengal) after almost two years. Given the fact that our house is in the midst of a barren land which over the years has turned into a mini forest makes one of the most picturesque place on earth the most ‘mosquitosque’ place on earth at night !
The first night all I had with me was a box of mosquito repellent coil, which hardly had any effect on the blood sucking creatures. I even took the coil in my hand and ran after the mosquitos (seriously). Finally I took my phone and did what comes naturally to me when I am in despair. I Googled…’ how to prevent mosquitos’ . There were those golden suggestions to save my soul and body that night. I mixed some camphor in a cup of water and kept it aside. The torture had reduced to some extent but now I was in a revengeful mood so I googled more for home remedies and there it was written ‘ sprinkle Listerine on your bed’and luckily I had a bottle of Listerine which I almost emptied on my bed and went off to a peaceful sleep.
After a grand party at my place, next day I found an extra bottle of beer, with overdose of beer, the previous night I hardly I any appetite for it so I decided to make better use of it- wash my hair with beer. So I entered the bathroom with a bottle of beer in my hand but with my wet hair I started to think how to apply this? Should I have applied the beer on my dry hair? Should I wash my hair with shampoo first and then with beer or beer first and then shampoo. Or should I or not rinse my hair with water after applying beer. So I came out of the bathroom and ran to my laptop and yes I Googled ‘ How to apply beer on hair‘ and there was the answer: Shampoo – Beer – Rinse…
Third and numerous incidents
Once Kamal was telling us about the extraordinary parrot, a female one which his mama possessed and all of a sudden the discussion shifted from that talented parrot to Kamal’s knowledge of biology and Shanket questioned him how did he know that the parrot was female? There was an hour’s heated discussion and it finally ended in a Google Search ‘ How to identify a female parrot! ‘
