There are times when you sit and think of the times that have been and the dreams you want to createand specially when you live in a house and with friends who have all left their jobs and aspire to….ummm…to use Steve Jobs cliched phrase “create a dent in the universe!”. You are bound to find pressure erupting from all sides of the universe trying to stop you from creating that dent and one big effort for saving the universe is made by who else but our families. They will constantly tell you how you were “On the right path!”…engineering kar hi liya tha…MBA karne wale the…lekin ye फितूर aa gaya! “27 SAAL KE HO GAYE HO…TAKE YOUR LIFE SERIOUSLY!”

It is then that we are reminded of how that one cousin/one neighbour's son (to keep the account real and reality is our group never actually had girls & we….only traces..so would stick to the male gender) whose name we never cared to ask is now a millionaire. It is only guys like us, who know ‘Chikki’ never meant anything to us or will ever mean anything but ‘Chikki’ is that albatross around our neck who will always keep hanging.
It was in this endeavour when we were sitting trying to dream a world which JOHN LENON had thought of….that a friend who no more belongs to the league of Out-Standing men & is pursuing a career which actually pays….got confused over this ‘Chikki’ business. It was understandable that the comforts of corporate life had clogged his perceptions. It is then that we decided to define Chikki for him and so many others like him who tried to be like that one ‘Chikki’- CHIKKI SARKAR.

PS: we call him Chikki because नाम में लोग मज़हब देख लेते हैं!
