Recently we dropped in on Vinu and Sindhu. After the inevitable rounds about family, friends and REC, the talk drifted to movies and movie stars. Sindhu asked me who my fav Tamil actor is and I said ‘Kamalahasan’.

Sindhu: I should have known. You look a bit like him…

Flashback. 1992. I shaved off my mush, and my friend Shobhana was like, “Mallu, you look like Guna”. Wow! Shaving-off-my-mush…and waiting for some guy to go, “You know, you look a bit like Kamal” became an annual ritual for me.

Then one day, mush-less, I entered the office, and the gang went…“Tada Tada Tada Tada…Avvai Shanmukhi…”

(Avvai Shanmukhi = Chachi 420, hence this post qualifies for the ‘Series 42’ stamp given to posts about my fav stuff – thought you would like to know)


Looks like 42 is the new 23.
I suddenly discovered a lot of happy associations with 42…

Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything, John Irving, Casablanca, Summer of 42, 1942 A Love Story, Roger Ebert, Paul McCartney, Guadalcanal, Alleppey Express 6042 and 42″Ball.

Thanks to Hari, Pradeep and Kumaran. The cake and the snap inspired this post.
