A.A.A.Aa

f all the A's in this world i know, these guys are the latest addition to the list.

One A in the title belongs to me.. the others are as follows:

Aditya

Akash

Aashish (the Double A belongs to this dude)

We are a bunch of people, really enthu about Unconferences (read Barcamp).
Met Akash at Barcamp Ahmedabad, Aditya at Barcamp Techfest and subsequent other events in IITB and havnt met Aashish yet, cus BarCamp B'lore keeps gettin postponed :-D

anyways, so one fine day, the prankster in me wakes up.. decides to play a prank on all of them....

started out by putting in a status message - OTSDDP...

which means "On The Spot Dhan Dhanadhan Popat", in short.. heard this last nite and laughed for almost an hour after the conversation....

for the uninitiated, it means giving undeniable proof that the person in question is a genuine in-duh-vidual and may, if s/he tries hard enough, reach the Darwin award nomination levels.
:-D

Anyways, going further, Aditya asks me what does this mean...
Prankster on the prowl, how can i let go off this question so easily... here's the conversation :

Aditi: ummm.. Ask Aashish. He'll know..
Aditya: Aashish... is not on my list...
Aditi: here is his id - aashish....@gmai.....
Aditya: ok cool...

in the meantime, I try and convince Aashish to direct him to me again for the meaning of that abbre.

Aashish: nahin yaar, woh bechara kaam kar raha hoga
Aditi: nahin re, he is chattin with me... please, be my prank buddy today, and direct him to me...
Aashish: nahin, mat pareshan kar bechare ko...

for the sweetheart he is, he was refusing to play along...
anyways, after a few moments...

Aditya: Tell na.. Aashish is not telling me...
Aditi: ok ask Akash.
Aditya: Akash is not on my list either...
Aditi: here you go... akash... @gmai.....
Aditya: wait something is happening... He is adding me...

at the back, this is what was happening...

Aditi: Hey akash, aditya will get in touch with u to know the meaning of some word. Just direct him to me.
Akash: wat ???

(he was kinda busy.. and i had bothered him. didnt understand what i said, so explained him the whole thing again.)

Akash: u know the meaning of the word...
Aditi: for all u know, he wont ask u, cus you are not there on his list.
Akash: gimme his id.
Aditi: aditya....@gmail.....

So yes, akash added him to actually direct aditya back to me for the meaning of the abbre.
And Aditya is wondering why would Akash add him !

Anyways...

this goes on for sometime...
Akash gets irritated and gives him the meaning to the abbre. after doing a google search.

i get gaalis... :-P

And i am the only one laughing... :-D, cus they actually didn't know tat i was playin a prank till late.

anyways, didn't pull off as well as the previous ones.
hopefully, i will be able to pull out a better one sooner.

looks more like .. mera OTSDDP hogaya ... :-P

Keep Prank-ing.
Want company, get in touch with me :-D

Aditya: OTSDDP, the new word for duh! :D

Akash: well, these lil incidents in life add spice to the life. And, i prefer enjoying LyF my way. :)
