The IPL fever and our Conversations

TBH is a big sports fanatic, he used to follow every sport, every match, listen/read live commentary; modify his work schedules accordingly. He is kind of person who runs cricket contests on watsapp with friends and cousins with proper rules and all, going to the extent of keeping a score board. You get the drift right? And now post marriage his sports involvement has come down to only cricket, I don’t want to go into the whys and let you know how interfering a wife I am. But knowing his passion for the game, I have resolved not to interfere him with the current IPL season and let him do what he wants during the matches. So daily 4 to 12 in the night the TV remains tuned to only Set Max. As the IPL fever is on full swing, so is the launching of new ads. Even rarely when I see a match along with him, I concentrate more to the new ads. But I had no idea that he also gives some importance to the ads until our recent conversations proved me totally wrong.

Here are tits bits of our recent random conversations highly influenced by the ad world.


I recently got one of my old sleeveless top dye-ed, and it is looking refreshingly new though I am not a big fan of sleeveless but yesterday I wore that. And as soon as he saw me, he gave me a melting naughty smile and said ‘you are going sleeveless on me’ 🙂 🙂 🙂


We keep on picking new games on the Ipad and compete against each other. Our latest craze is bowling. And I went to him saying ‘ek game ho jaye ‘and with full volume and passion he said ‘Oh Yes Abhi’


His team was losing in one of the matches and I had a feeling it would and continuing on our some conversation I said ‘dekha’ and he again shocked me by saying ‘sirf dekhne ka nahi, jumping jhapak, jumping jhapak’


He is in other room watching match, I was in other room glued to the laptop, we pinged each other on gchat exchanging some messages and then he asked ‘kya kar rhi ho’. I said ‘was about to write something’. And he pinged back saying ‘likhne ke pehle kuch meetha ho jaye, shubh aarambh meethe se’ 🙂 🙂 🙂


We prefer different things with our morning tea, I mostly stick to one particular biscuits and when today morning I was having those, he started humming these lines, ‘morning evening kya kha rahe ho, kya kha rahe ho, biscuit ki shakal mein maida kha rhe ho, maida kha rhe ho 🙂 🙂


Late night conversation, me asking ‘will you have some milk’, he singing, ‘ha ha mai ready hu, ha ha mai ready hu’ J on the tunes of one of the popular ads jingles.


He has this insane ability to make me laugh in the most unexpected situations and I am yet to witness all the side effects of the matches, abhi toh bus shuruwat hai 🙂

I hope all of you know the ads mentioned in the above instances, if not let’s play a guessing game, guess the ad in each part and put your answers in the comment section.

    Love it. IPL fever runs in my house too, and I keep asking dumb questions

      Me too, but few single male friends (married friends couldn’t dare) posted examples of dumb questions girls ask during matches on fb, and that gave me a hint and stopped bothering TBH with silly questions 😛

    • OHW April 17, 2013 at 8:31 am Reply

      And I have come down to a neutral stage – not a big fan, but do not dislike either.

    I love cricket…and I love all these ads more. I love the way Sameer Kochhar dances to the jumping jhapak song. You have one witty husband, to match those ads with real life situations.. cute write up. 🙂
