Pappu I know you Pappa

I wanted to post this on my own blog sometime back but didn't since the topic is very inherently Bong by nature and only a Calcuttan will understand who/what I'm talking abt. The topic being - para kakus.

How many of you have interesting para kakus (PKs)? They are always there - discussing everything from the local municipal elections to Sachin's tennis elbow and how "he should concentrate more on cricket and not tennis coz Sania is much better at that" :) I love the way they stop every person walking by and ask them the exact same question - "ki bhalo to"? But lest you think they don't care for you, they add in their own personal touch to the situation as well - "tumi ki porcho jeno? bah, bah, khub bhalo!"

What amazes me most abt all the PKs of my locality is that they all bring out references to my dad. Now I know my dad and I know that he wasn't much of a para person. But that doesn't stop all these kakus from referring to him - "bujhle to (followed by some deep introspection) ... tumi tokhon onek choto. tomar baba aar ami khela dekhtey gechi ... jiggesh koro" OR "seta 1970s er kotha hobey ... tomar babar money thakbey" OR "arre Mukut (my dad) key to amiyi bollam engineering portey ... o to bhabchilo pure science niye porbey". Surprisingly my dad claims complete ignorance to most of these references. Also I have noticed that nobody makes any references to Mom - not in our para, nor in her own childhood para.

All very amusing.

yes, certainly. para kakus discuss women only in context of a wedding (or a scandal, but we'll be very brit and pretend they don't exist), and even then, it's more like "omukbabur meyer biye". it's this inherent stagism thing, y'know?

and all clap for sagnik--the only person actually writing stuff for this blog. yay!

I think this para kaku thing is a very Bong male syndrome. Even in Delhi the husbands of my mother's friends would behave like your para kakus, holding forth on everything under the sun. "Omuker chhele porashunote golla", "Aamader rajneta-ra shobai chor", etc.,etc.

I dunno cz my dads not from our para :) i mean he is from ranchi and he doesnt live there except for holidays - so theres no talking abt baba business. ulte, mom was more the daanpite gunda of the para kind - infact one of her pet names was gunda - so i hear more of "ei tutu'r boro meye na" ... and usually "tapash kirokum? bhalo" bas ... beshi khejur hoye. Maybe its dying out? The parar morer adda thing? I remember chhotobela te there was this regular gang of men near south-ave mehta house mor ... aaj kaal kauke dekhi na :(

you hit the nail with this one sagnik! the all concerned PK's of my para did nothing but rock e boshe adda mara aar shondhe bela morey dariye carrom khela and take pride in being the first ones to know kon barir chhele porikhay fail korlo and kar meye kon parate giye chok korlo.

Actually, PK's beshi taash khaley...
I guess, since carrom involves standing our PK's being our PK's and we being Bongs, it's too much of an exercise. So carrom toh beshi para-r bekar chana-pona-rai khaley.
And of course, how can forget the PA's - para-r aunty's. Uff...shey ki goppu..."jaano toh..."

What about the unending queue in front of the local moder dokan, every friday night??? Since you have mentioned the kakus are the mamus on their way.
peace out..:)
