Post the innovation gym we had in our office, had decided that I would do something to increase the sort of activity. Remembered that I had done a few rebus puzzles when I was in HO and thought would send the same to the guys in FBD and start a quiz. The initial response for the quiz was not even Lukewarm. But then tried my luck on the whatsapp group and the response was amazing.
Thought of posting all the rebuses I have created here. Do leave your answers in the comment section:
Will add more as when I create them. Cheers.

So I'm back here after ages. Not sure for how much longer this will last, but better make the full of whatever we have!
I'm back here for 2 reasons. One is to tell that the stupid workshops which the company conducts do have some impact. Will try and put in words what exactly I'm referring to, later. Two is to just put down all the lexophilia sentences my friends and I came up with.
Not too sure whether lexophilia is the right term for this, but since I don't have another name for it, I'll just stick to it till someone gives it a better name. The whole point is to frame intelligent sentences. Sounds a bit egoistic, I know! But still, it is fun once you look beyond the fact that we are trying to show off. Rather than explaining it further, I'll just get to the examples:
1. He wore a vampire costume on Halloween. It sucked!
2. Have you seen this movie Drug Addiction? I hear it has got some rave reviews.
3. My son said that he wanted a pony for his birthday. Later I realised he was just horsing around.
4. Mom sent me to buy some bread, but I just ended up loafing
5. The equation was fairly simple, but I made it complex
6. In the murder trial of Megatron, Optimus was the Prime suspect
7. Ashwini Ravi: He put Beatles music in his son's crib. It rocked
8. Ashwini Ravi: The Pope got directed to a cooking site while finding pastors online. It was a cross reference
9. Jitu: I took an apple to the wwe..it was raw.
10. Hey. Did you see the documentary on Pygmies? It's a short one.
11. Is it just a coincidence that Iron Maiden is a metal band?
12. Have you heard about this restaurant called Time Travel? I keep going back for seconds.
13. The guy who came second in the curds drinking contest was sure a sour loser.
The idea is to keep updating this as when something new comes up. Let's see. Do let me know if you guys liked anything.

अगला स्टेशन: मैदान
পরবর্তী স্তাতীয়ন: ময়দান (Parabarti Station: Moidaan) [Though I always thought the announcement was boroboti!!]
Well... Yes... they actually announce this in the metro after the "Robindro Shodan" Station. The pronunciation of the word "Maidan" is different. But that's got to do with the Bengali language. And just as differently they call the place, they see the place differently too. Maidan is one huge playground for us, but a completely different planet for Calcuttans (I hear they like being called that... over Kolkatans!!)
A Calcuttan's view of Maidan:
I guess, when a Calcuttan goes on a Sunday to Maidan to play, regardless of the time or sport.. this is what he/she sees:
When you enter the expanse of Maidan, all you can see is - PEOPLE.. People running... people running behind balls... people running behind small balls, big balls, white balls, red balls, chequered balls, colored balls, leather balls, tennis balls, soccer balls, volleyballs..
You will even see dogs, birds and horses running!! When a fast bowler is running at you, what you need to be scared of is not his short pitched delivery which might hit your head or the yorker which might smack on your toe. What you really need to be scared is a free kick taken by the "Man Utd" shirts team v/s "Arsenal" shirts team!!
I heard Ganguly grew up in stature in these grounds. No wonder he was such a good "fielder". There is always someone 2 feet from you ball, wherever you hit it. What's the need to field it huh??
And why is he regarded as one of the best captains for India? If you can manage to make your team play cricket in Maidan without getting distracted, you can def lead a country!!!
But Calcuttan or non-Calcuttan, if you are in Calcutta, you must play cricket in Maidan.. regardless of the commotion, cacophony and confusion, it is still one of the best places in Calcutta. Get a decent group, get a few stumps, a ball and a bat and you are good to go. Don't worry about rules, the more you play, the more of MCG (Maidan Cricket Ground) rules you make up..
And if you are in Calcutta and are looking for a Sunday morning cricket, do give me a buzz.. Will let you know!!
And yeah.. finally I have managed to explain no.7!!
Came across an interesting bit of "Maidan Belief" a few days ago while playing a match. The belief is that, the cricket bat should always be kept the blade facing up and never let the bat flat on the ground as..... wait for it....... "the runs will flow away from the bat to the ground!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
So next time you're playing cricket remember this:

Yes.. I am not sleepy.. and some MFs are drilling away to glory on the main road.. I doubt I will get sleep either.. So here goes the first story:
Everyone knows about High Five's where it looks something like this:
The description is wrong, because in our case, we know that we are going for a high five and a fist!! So... Flump off..
How it actually looks like is this: (Me - Fedex, Varun - Sampras.. [ePIC!!])
So now for the Etymology of High Paanch:
Five in Hindi is Paanch and Punch in Bengali is "Paanch" ;)
So there you go.. It's not a Flump, you idiots.. Its a HIGH PAANCH!!
