Devil De-viled

There are always people in this world who actually have the nicest heart, the softest personality, the calmest disposition, but attempt to portray themselves in a different manner. They find this need to call themselves something demonic, and trust me when I say this: they wouldn’t be able to say ‘boo’ to a goose! It’s just not in their mental makeup to be mean, bad, evil, etc…but they find it necessary to force them as such.

And one such person celebrates his 26th birthday today – The Good Boy who likes to call himself Devil.

There are few first impressions as impacting as one where you see a person on the stage doing his best to be a Drew Carrey. But that is exactly how I met him. Though he officially made his entry into my life as the magnanimous plutocrat providing succor to us famished souls (Rajjo, Kiddo and myself), the “Whose Line is it Anyway” act is something that I would like to associate him with, and he doesn’t. :)

After having “pillioned” his Kinetic Pride, Honda a million times & then “shotgunned” his Zen, Esteem, Lancer, City a gazillion times, I can say that he is one of the best drivers, if he chooses to be. But the problem is that in an effort to show his non-existent mean streak, he pulls off some driving antics – a charade pretty convincing to the unsuspecting eye, but not to anyone in our gang.

He will always be the soul of our gang – a fact pronounced by the fact that we had the least fun when he was away in London/ Hyd/ Chennai, and the most when in Bangalore. Give him five minutes, and he will concoct some sort of a get-together that would take us ages to plan. All this easily makes us ignore his idiosyncratic affinity towards TGIF, stupid car movies, bland European cuisine and innocent gaffes.

Despite his “cool devil” impersonation, he still wishes for the fervent birthday wishes, Murugesh’s Arab mails and maybe even a few flowers from the ladies. (So anyone who is in a position to render any of the following services, please free to do so)

A Happy Birthday to Kaushik aka The Devil aka Kojan aka XS aka Kaausheee!!!

I have called upon Murugesh himself to deliver his personal wishes. At the moment he is working on an elaborate animated arab birthday greeting card. The occassion demands it.

Happy Birthday to the blogless one.
