Yearender With A.....Drag?

Three days back at around 8pm we finished our evening tea and were standing outside our office gate as my colleague was finishing his fag. I saw one elderly couple crossing the road from opposite to us. As they crossed they kept on looking at us. I thoutht they might ask us something. They crossed and passed us still looking at us and stopped at little distance away. From the back of my eye I saw them talking intensely. Then the husband came up and addressed my colleague, 'Hello, can I have a drag please?' 'What! A drink?' 'No, no. I want only a drag. I didn't take one since yesterday!' My bewildered friend offered him the remaining part, 'Ok. Have it all'. And we started moving towards the gate. With the wife watching the man took one drag and shouted behind us, 'Hello, I want only a drag. Please take it back!' We waved at him and went back to work laughing all the way. Can you analyze this true bizzarre incident?

Binding Terror

First the public anger pouring into the streets of Mumbai. This kind of anger was first seen in Guwahati after the Assam blasts on Octover 30, with crowds marching on to attack the capital complex. The anger enveloping the whole of India now. Cascading into political resignations, falls of ministries and so on. Politics attacked finally not only by the elites who never bothered even to vote earlier, but also by the masses. And today, the 11th of December, in the Indian Parliament all political parties joined together to fight terror. Let the fallout of terror last forever, not terror.
