You-Rekha!

Have accidentally hit upon an amazing diet plan, which involves only one visit to a dentist! Just go and get a wisdom tooth pulled out!

Before:

  1. See something tasty and fattening
  2. Eat it
  3. Become fatter

After:

  1. See something tasty and fattening
  2. Eat it
  3. It will taste nice for a few seconds
  4. A bit of it will lodge itself in the gap at the back of your mouth
  5. Your tongue will get sprained trying to maneuver it out
  6. You will spend ten minutes rinsing
  7. You will spend five minutes brushing
  8. At night, the tiny food bit will start hurting your gum
  9. Bleary eyed, sleep deprived and half-day-pay-lossed from office, you'll visit the dentist the next morning
  10. You will have to watch a Tamil movie on a mute TV screen in the dentist's waiting room for 45 minutes
  11. The dentist will spray foul chemicals in your mouth
  12. Your tastebuds will take two hours to recover from the spray
  13. You will go back in time and NOT eat the tasty and fattening thing
  14. You will not grow fatter (unless you have a metabolism like mine)

The bone apparently does not grow back for three months after tooth removal, so you can lose a LOT of weight. Repeat cycle for every wisdom tooth, and you never have to exercise again.

OK, not about dentist, this time - i just want to thank you again for the lyrics and translation to Jai Ho.

Because I danced to it at Holi, and I fell into the song's vibrancy and joy, so I'm determined to learn how to sing it in Hindi, with the Spanish and the Urdu. By having your lyrics up while I play it on YouTube, it helps me begin.

So I've got the first two lines today, and I'm out walking with my dog, and begin singing it, to practice - Aaja, aaja... and as I finish the second line, it strikes me. Thanks to your translation, I know what it means, and *I'm doing what I'm singing!* Because I *am* out, under all that beautiful blue sky. And that was so cool!

So thank you for a lovely learning experience -
your generosity in sharing those lyrics made it possible.

All the Best, Peg
