Eats, shoots & leaves

I may not spell one word same twice but I’m certainly a grammar-nazi; I comma check all the writings. I was working on the proof of one of my poems all the morning, and took out a comma. In the afternoon I put it back again. To tell you the truth, I have a literature degree but hey, does it really matter?

Okay, coming to the topic this title is based on a punctuation mistake in wildlife manual in which a panda is defined as a ‘large black-and-white bear-like mammal, native to China. Eats, shoots & leaves.’ While this might not be politically funny to many but Lynne Truss has written a complete book on the subject with her zero tolerance approach to puntuation. So, while my puntuation might be politically correct, in one sense or other, but my talk is not!

Nah, I’m not talking politics (I’ll address my political agenda some other time). Not even Grammar and Punctuation. It is about a photography trip we people are arranging this sunday. We gather on this sunday morning for a lahori-sunday-special-nashta (a few jarks in our own camp argue ‘how a sunday nashta is different from monday or tuesday’? answer please, with two examples), shoot around people (with our cameras off course!) and leave. That’s it! So if you’re a panda with a camera and love to eat, shoot and leave (the place in a jiffy), you are cordially invited to join us!
