Many physicists today postulate the existence of multiple universes, even when sober. We used to live in a world of infinite possibilities. Now we live in an infinite number of worlds. India shines. Democracy thrives. The economy booms. A hundred flyovers bloom. This is not that India. If you see your picture here one day, don’t worry. That’s not you.



Dear Uncle,

Nobody in our office wants to bell the cat. What should we do?

Shekhar, Chennai


Dear Shekhar,

First, you need to creep up on the cat with chloroform. Reach out gently and cover its nose. Be careful of dosage. Remember, you have to bell the cat, not eliminate it. Once the cat is unconscious, fix the bell to its collar. Your promotion is practically guaranteed.

Regards, Uncle

    Very witty…. you’re a great writer, man. You have the true comedic spirit. Keep it up. On a similar note…this song comes to mind… about company get-togethers…

    Now that’s called moving with the time and knowing what, how and when to do things, I agree with the comment above, very witty indeed!

    Make the owner of the cat Schrodinger. Either it is belled or it is not. You can never really know. So it doesnt matter…

      Uncle accepts that this too is a valid solution. But he did not know how to spell Schrodinger.

      That’s a good idea. But I don’t know enough about physics. Or cats.

    LOL…I do not know much about Physics and Schrodinger’s cat. But, reality teaches us that a severely pissed off cat MIGHT react offensively…so a quantum state of probability remains…hahaha…
