A Letter to Vampire Santa

Vampire Owl: Good evening, my dear vampire apprentices. I know that this is Christmas, but this will be a very short class after which we can have the Christmas celebrations. Standing once again before you in this class, it is my honour and great privilege to read this letter which was written by the Vampire Bat to Vampire Santa when he was a little fang-less one, and it was sent only to be returned by the cruel postman. This comes as a part of the second semester Part IV paper twenty seven. There will be annotation questions coming from this one. So, please listen carefully.

Vampire Crocodile: Sir, we are going on a Christmas carol in two hours. The transportation is waiting outside.

Vampire Owl: Sure, you are allowed to go for that. Actually, this will be very short. I will just take a few minutes of your time. I am taking this class right now because you can actually keep talking about it when you go for the carol or arrange the crib and put the stars. This topic will suit the occasion, and it will make sure that you remember the whole thing in a better way, making things better for the examinations. Now, here is the letter. You can note down the points, and I shall provide you with a photostat copy of it later. Whatever you do, try your best to remember what comes next.

Dear Vampire Santa,

I know that you are very busy gifting those toothless little vampires with those special things. I have read a lot about the bloody cakes and those variety blood-wine which you provide them with. But I am asking you not to forget me. I had asked for something during the last year’s Christmas too? I think that you forgot that because it was blood-moon season at that time, and you were working only as a part-time Santa. It must have been difficult to work with those wolves instead of the reindeer, as you took over as the first Vampire Santa only last year.

I know your problems and limitations, but I also feel your abilities have improved this year, and you are no longer working as a part-time Vampire Santa. This year’s vampire programs are sponsored by the vampire elders, as I came to know from a letter sent to me as a reply from Uncle Dracula’s office. I have also understood that you are now paid in blood for your services, and that you are also training Easter Bunny for Easter, while developing a special relationship with Mahabali during your last visit to the underworld, which was clearly defined during the latter’s visit to Kerala during last Onam.

So, please try to bring these gifts for me. The first thing that I want is an autographed work from Uncle Dracula. I have heard that he is writing a new work on the truth behind the legend about him. I would like one of those very first fan editions from him. There has been some rumours that he will give these books only to the vampire elders and those who are part of his vampire guard of honour. Even if that is true, I know that you can get this because you are the Vampire Santa. There are not many things that you can’t do on a Christmas Day; this is December 25th – your own special day.

There is another present that I need you to provide. It is not for me, but for a few others. I am not sure if you provide presents to the older people, but this is a special scenario. I am asking you to provide some brain to my relatives who have always been so irritating. I want you provide them with the knowledge that money isn’t everything, and maybe you can implant this idea directly into their brains. Providing them with the ability to think will be easier, but they just don’t want to think at all, and it is depressing. You are the person with the skills, and so please do make the right decision about them here.

I also wish for our vampire world and the future New Vampire World which Uncle Dracula is working on, to be perfect. I hope that you provide enough strength and blessings to him and his minions. I have heard that your blessings have been touched by the Great Vampire Orb of Eternity, and I know that you are the one in command during this time of the year. There are things that you can do, which most people don’t know about yet. But I know, because I have always believed in magic, and I have chosen to keep my faith. You are my hope to seeing a better world order at least among the vampires.

We are all Special

We are all different individuals with a large variety of tastes. If we look closer, the similarities become a lot lesser in number and this lack of similarities will assure each one of us that we have our own personalities. There are lots of things that contribute to this individuality, but in my case, I am going to come up with some weird reasons. Different might be nice, but weird is better. It is also special! What is the fun in everyone being the same kind of person?

The first point here would be that I don’t comb my hair. Well, I can’t remember when was the last time I did that. Nowadays, I don’t even have hair style. All the style depends on how my hair manages to be. I have cared very less about how I look like; it has been one my least concerns. If you see me right out of the bed, my looks will be the exact same as how you see me on the road. The looks should beĀ one thing on which people are never toĀ be judged, and I hope I won’t be. Seventy rupees in every one and half months and the hair is done.

Then there is the point about tea. Most of you should already know it and this blog is also based on the same as you might have noticed the presence of tea already. My special skills include drinking a lot of tea; or rather it is my special need – I drink a lot of tea each and every day. It makes sure that I will write again and without tea, my life is empty. There might be other things among food and drinks, but nothing for me like a cup of tea. Even now, I had to find my tea for inspiration.

This is the kind of path which you follow. Also note my car for no reason :P

This isĀ where I would park my car. There is tea all around, and so inspiration.

I have always loved the celebrities who were not crowd favourites. Even as a child, I tried to bring my own interests to light. Whether it was cricket, football or WWE, I used to come up with my own favourites who were not the biggest names at that time. I wanted my choices to be different and the kind of people whom everyone else loved. I guess that there was a certain amount of selfishness there as I also wanted to love these people without sharing with a huge crowd.

I try my best not to smile while taking a photo, or at times come up with half a smile. I have felt that there is no point in smiling in front of the camera when there is not much happiness in life and people hate other so much. As true happiness is rarely there and so difficult to find, I consider my smile to be fake and therefore will make an attempt to hide it whenever possible. True happiness is more of a fairy tale than true love, and I am not going to bring that one to light. If smiles are missing, I hope others smile for me too.

One thing different in my belief system is that I believe that we are all striving for one aim, which is death. I have good set of positive beliefs about death which I keep close to my heart. I used to have a few points printed about the same, but then decided not to keep that piece of paper because someone will think that I am suicidal. It is not like I am suicidal, but I wait for the moment of my end, and I started this waiting quite some time ago. Only death can bring the much needed equality.

So, let the dark clouds leave and get to the destination I am talking about.

So, let the dark clouds arrive and remind us about that dark end to our lives.

I am yet to really understand why I write blogs. I keep writing as if it is something which my life depends on. There has been no day without at least one blog post from last December onward. Sometimes I think that I know the reason, but most of the time, I feel that there was no real understanding about the same. Usually, people have an aim, they have ambitions and they know where they are going with their blogs. But with all my weirdness, I know nothing about it. Maybe I am a blog post robot who managed to gather a human soul.

What World Provides

It is a terrible world. We are judged by people for many reasons including our choices in what career we pursue, what we watch on the big screen, what we earn, what we browse on the internet, whom we worship, how much money we possess, where we live, what we eat, how we dress and similar things. No matter how much we try to be good, people will just judge us and try to put labels on us. Some of them use our personal opinions and interests against us to declare that we are bad or useless. It is a world which is not suitable for people with their own choices.

All the sadness in the world comes to us in huge baskets of disapproval. It only gets bigger as life goes on and on. We look for a smile and never find it, and then we look for a reason to smile and it is not there. Most of the people find faults and it is quite difficult for them to appreciate others; so it is not easy for us to trust them to bring the smiles. Even the relatives don’t really like us, and nobody tries to understand our situation. They never try to look at things from our perspective too.

It is a very difficult thing to bring smiles to our own face, as there is rarely anything positive that we find in the news that can do that. There is almost nothing that the people say to me that can make another happy. Nobody cares about the other, and the world is nothing but chaos or terror waiting to unleash. There is no freedom and there is no love. So, where can the smiles come from? How can we bring smiles to the face of others? Well, food can do that better than the others; it is a nice option.

smiles (2)

Well, taste has not always been a priority for me; neither has it been so with the choices. I still have my priorities about what I eat. There are two things that I love to have as part of my food, and they are paneer and potatoes. I am a big fan of Aloo Tikki and Vegetable Nuggets became my favourite due to the presence of potatoes. The smiles usually arrive when I see that the menu has somethiing like that includes a potato. This smile tries to come at all times, but it is not always there.

So, it is time to put a smile on the face of at least one person. In a world of hate, it is not something easily possible, unless it is about the artificial smiles. Thinking about the same, I had a look at this product called McCain Smiles. The mashed potatoes with happy faces make a nice effect, with smiles coming right from the plate. What we have to do after that is to eat the smiles with a smiles on the faces. With smile being reflected from the plate, the only thing that we can do is to smile back.

It is the smile that we forget and it is the smile that we find difficult to have. Remember those Milk Bikis Milk Cream Cookies which we used to have? Those were the biscuits which smiled at us. Then there were the Little Hearts biscuits which came up with the shape of a heart. They were consistent sources of relief to us at a time when people smiled and cared less. The same is with McCain smiles which brings the smiles on the packets as well as the products. There is a reflection of happiness right there.

McCain brings extension to the smiles with Aloo Tikki and Vegetable Nuggets. The Chilli Garlic Potato Bites brings more smiles to what already exists. When you look at the Super Wedges from McCain, there is another addition. Potato Cheese Shots takes the same further. With McCain Cheese and Jalapeno Nuggets, the smiles are taken to the next level. Still, there is no smile like what McCain Smiles brings for us.
