Wake up Shanu!!


I have been reporting to work late for the last 2 days. My sleep-deprived eyes are swollen and I keep dozing off at my desk. I have become the butt of jokes ranging from subtle hinting ones to plain crass ones. This is the 3rd night in a row and it doesn’t look like it gonna be any different. Because, Kallu jisne mere raaton ki neend udha li hai is still around.


My nights are spent playing ‘Who blinks first’ with Kallu and days are spent trying to dress while averting his constant gaze. He seems to be smitten by me because he is near the computer when I am chatting and as soon as I get ready for bed...there he is waiting for me.

I still remember the day when I first saw him. My heart skipped a beat and tried not to gasp. He held my gaze without batting an eyelid. I tried sleeping but couldn’t get his image out of my head. Every time I closed my eyes I could see his face.

When I didn’t see him around last night, my eyes kept searching for him. Although I couldn’t see him, I knew he was somewhere, looking at me. I assumed he must have gone for a midnight snack and I was right. He was back in no time smacking his lips and staring at me with those beady eyes.

I disliked creepy crawlies before Kallu came into my life but he has made me change my point of view. Now, I hate them.

Usually my father does the honors of driving the unwanted elements away. But he is away on a business trip. And as my brother derives sadistic pleasure from watching my ever-growing dark circles, I have no other alternative but to pray that Kallu – the lizard finds a better home….soon!

Psst: Kallu is reading over my shoulder as I write this. He is a huge black lizard who has currently made the wall near my bed his abode. He (don’t ask me how I know it’s a he…I just do) is the biggest, fattest, blackest lizard I have ever laid my eyes on.

Psst psst: I guess he took offence because I called him fat. I haven’t seen him for the last 2 hours. Believe it or not I actually miss him. I better rush off to bed before I start looking for him. I can’t survive another day on just 4 hours of sleep.


Psst psst psst: I know that the title has no connection to the post. But I couldnt come up with anything else :(

wishes galore said...

if you ever get to know any full-proof method to kep them away from your walls, send it to me asap as walls of my house randomly see different sizes and shades of Kallu..!!:/

Archana said...

Aaaaaaaah lizards! They scare meee. The way you describe Kallu, I'd faint if he was in my room, lol. When I was in New York, we have this pesky little mouse that kept sneaking in to our perfectly clean apartment, and my sister wanted to name him..and I was like don't do it, because the minute you name him he becomes a pet. And a pet translates into liking something, and therefore if & when he gets caught by a mouse trap you'll feel bad, lol.

I'm silly, I know. :P

Btw, u hv got an Award. Chk my blog for more details! ;)

eye-in-sty-in said...

oye!... 2 days of being sleep deprived? Are u sure u r looking @ a lizard on the wall or is it ur reflection in a mirror :P

Btw, my grandma used to make us take a shower if we touched a lizard.... poisonous n all...

take care, ok? did you say kallu was black? isnt a dark snake more poisonous? (scratches his head as he leaves....)

PS: do remind me when u reply...

Shanu said...

@ Kaddu

I need u in my room...Now!

Ohh an award**dances arnd**Will drop by now :)

Shanu said...

@ Spikey

I dont look like a lizrd...I mite resemble a cockroach on my best days..but try as I may..i cant reach the crawly beauty of a lizard!

Kallu isnt poisonous...he is cute..thatz wat he is!

Spike said...

if u wanna look like a lizard, u shd hire SRK's trainer... the latter made SRK look like a lizard in OSO! :P

Apparently he was still liked by many ppl after acquiring his reptilian looks ;-)

Shanu said...

@ Spikey

How did u manage to read my mind? I have decided to join power yoga classes so tat i can get to a size zero and look like kareena who looks like a pretty white lizard herself!

And most guys (mayb even u)loved her in her skinny avataar!

Man, lizrds are attractive arnt they?

Spike said...

well, never a die hard fan of Kareena, but yeah, she does manage to look like a stick... perhaps she and SRK share the same trainer, eh?

Shanu said...

@ Spike

yeah..now SRK, Kareena and me will have the same trainers..hw cool :)

numerounity said...

This is an ideal tale about all the kallus and yallus of the "wall world".

Gosh i have been a victim too of his breed's dirty lusty looks and loyalty.

First i thought it is the rahul "the wall" dravid poster on my bathroom that makes him a sticky to walls...but futile...some ppl just do not given up...kallu bhi waisa hi hai.

If you find a cure for kallu, mujhe bhi batana- full on!

ani_aset said...

hopped over from choco's blog here ...why dont you try hanging a cotton ball near the wall :)
I wrote a post sometime back on lizards here http://silentlyexpress.wordpress.com/2009/07/27/nablopomopost-2755-words-or-less-creeper/

Harini said...
