Forever black?


My Naani's place has a dog. His name is Blacky. He's definitely not the one in the pic but bears close resemblance. His predecessor was also named Blacky. His predecessor was Jacky. And I think his predecessor was Rocky. But let the ‘key’s be in the locks and the ‘ky’s’ be in the adjectively chosen name’s suffixes because I am digressing. 

So I was wondering as to why his hair doesn’t turn white even as he ages. I want that formula. He's always black. Jet black! And no one can do anything about it. That’s it.

On a different note, I am off the hook for a few days now. My Mathematics teacher used to tell us how he’d just shut out everything and would go away without phone or any intimation where he was. Let’s try that on a controlled and confined scale. Let’s be lost for a few days.
Vacations!

if you ever find out the formula...do let me know!
About the whole disappearing act, i am doing it too. Starting tomorrow for a week.

Saru Singhal said...

I guess that's a brilliant idea. You are in HP, so you don't need to go far away, go to a nearby place. BTW I am also from HP, born in Nalagarh and parental house in a village near Swarghat.
Enjoy your vacation!

Mystical Skeptical Me said...

Enjoy your break Blasphemous Asthete. :D We shall wait for you. :D :)

Oh, and I had a black dog too in my village called Sheru. He too was Jet Black! But since you are going to search for the formula, let us know :D :D

Blessed Be!

Ritika said...

I tried to disappear for long. It felt great. And irritating at the same time. And realize how much we are addicted to all this stuff, phone and internet etc.

Reicha Ahluwalia said...

Me too had a black dog from past 6 years but he ran away a couple of months back, named "jacky" and was a jet black lebra..i never chew over it as you did that why his hair doesn’t turn white even as he ages.. Its really thoughtful ;)
Nice !

SEPO said...

good luck with the vacation thing. should be enriching.

maithili said...

I m back after a busy busy time and all bloggers going on "disappearing act"

Well while you are disappearing try find out the formula :P

Prateek said...

You've been deceived by Blacky. His objective to make you realize, his hairs will always be black has now been accomplished. The secret is; Blacky secretly dyes his body. Hmm.

Mishi said...

hello...something is waiting for you on my page:-)

Soumya said...

Come back soon though :)

Nostalgic said...

ME WANTS THAT FORMULA TOOOOS.

Thakur sahab, ap bhi gayab? Oh why :( everyone is going on a vacation JUST NOT ME :( *sulks in a corner*

Khair, enjoy. And come back soon :)

Love xoxo

suruchi said...

let the fun times begin-it's best to go unconnected but definitely not un-intimated...arre bata dete to hum sab wahan thode na pahunch jaate*shucks, missed another chance to bump into you "accidently":-)*

Cloud Nine said...

Ouch...one more blogger goes into hiding. Whats happening folks? And do bring back the formula of black remaining black forever. Might need it soon enough:P

Felicity said...

LOL @ Prateek's comment. :P

Enjoy the vacation. :)

☆ Rià ღ said...

Shilpa Nair said...

Have u ever seen what Blacky does when all of u retire for the night? Empty one pouch of Black Rose kali Mehandi...Lol ;)

Purba said...

Someone said get lost and you took it seriously? Will miss your insightful comments.

Cindrella said...

Mahesh Kalaal said...

happy sabbatical buddy :)

Alka Gurha said...

Enjoy the solitute...and by the way is Blackie using LOreal because hes definitely worth it.

Ph_ said...

Being lost eh!! Don't be gone for too long =)
I do not think jet black is so much an issue since white and ash streaked hair are in fashion =p =D
Have fun!

Sonshu said...

Honestly my first thoughts were how random this post was. Talking about you know million things? Well, lucky thing. His signs of ageing aren't showing through his hair. :)

Oh and happy vacation. We all need vacations. Your posts shall be missedddddd.

Tweety said...

Aww I envy you....I want a holiday like that myself...When you become invisible for few days....Sigh... Relish the days....But come back soon :) :)

Cinderella said...

Been there. Done that. You will see how liberating it turns out to be.

Enjoy!

eNiGmA said...

Amber Light said...

Surprisingly, the comments section does not give references to Dabur Amla Kesh Tail (no pun intended, but do take it if you want)
and Godrej hair dye (remember the infinite echoes of "Aunty" ad?)

So I did my civic duty of adding them in.

TheGirlAtFirstAvenue said...

Enjoy your break! :)

Tanvi said...

I got it when i spoke to you today :) :)

And about the jet black dog...lol.. I used to wonder about the same thing when i was small :) :P heehee :D and then i used to see some dogs half white and half black and used to think, he is old :P heehee :D

Anyways pumpkin, do have fun :) :) Cheers,

:-Dee said...

Enjoy your time out - that must be the formula!!! ;)

Priyanka said...

Lost is exactly how one should be during vacation. Good luck with that.

Do the 'ky' series of canines have any offspring that I can adopt? :)

Punam said...

Happy Vacationing!!

Samadrita said...

Wow I come to read your blog after God knows how long, and you're disappearing. Great luck I got. Get back soon btw. :)

Tanishka said...

Few days equals to how many days????

Anyways for that formula thing why don't you try applying asian paint :P

Rek said...

I think grey suits our wrinkling dulled skins better....
Enjoy your vacations.

Kiran Ashraf said...

Latha vijayakumar said...

Nice blog post. But you are something different.

Ms.R. said...

Give me the formula if you discover it hehe

Hey happy vacationing!!!

Lilangel said...

Enjoy your time off :) I just got back from one :)

Nehha N Josshi said...

"Happy Break"ing...;)

Blasphemous Aesthete said...

Okay, so now that I am almost back, I am wondering if I would reply to all of you in one go?

Umm, I did not quite subject blacky to third degree to make him blurt out the recipe for eternally black hair, but I did try to cajole him. But all the while I was trying to do that, he was aiming to have a whiff of my face. He looked at me inquiringly for a moment and the next moment his nose and tongue were shot at my face like a dart.

So, I gave up on the plans to get the secret out of him.

And, I was wondering why no one suggested cherry blossom? It is known to give jet black, and shiny black too? And is endorsed by Charlie Chaplin too :P

Thank You all, specially the two ladies who have conferred upon me lovely awards. I am really honored and I think overwhelmed would be an appropriate word here seeing the best wishes :)

Regards,
Blasphemous Aesthete

Raam Pyari said...

share the formula pls :D

Shumaila said...

That's definitely something to think about and you would think with all the research someone would have got a black dog's DNA and made a tonic for us humans!
Great idea about hooking off. I am really tempted to go for the Vipasana thingy. One of my friends did it and she can't stop raving about it. Maybe you should try it too!
On a separate note, thanks for the comment on RP's blog smilethesmile. :)

Shumaila said...

Ok after I posted my previous comment, it struck me why Blacky's hair stays black. I don't know if there was a philosophical bent to the question (being a Sardarni things like that don't quite register), so I am taking it literally, and answering it as such. Aren't dogs life span just 20 years max? I am sure if they lived more, the worries of the world would make their hair turn grey. (Did I just show how dumb I am by not understanding the double meaning of the whole Blacky situation or did I just show that Sardars too can think great things?)

sm said...

enjoy have a good time

Noor-ul-ain Hanif said...

cute blacky!!!

the feeling lioness said...

the greatest thing is that your hair are turning white...yeah i would say you are 'brilliant'...keep sharing such stuff..it makes their day(haw haw)

Blasphemous Aesthete said...

@Raam Pyari
Would I? :P

@Shumaila
Even if they were to live for twenty years, still they go through the phases of life like youth, adult and old age. So their hair should also come full circle. :)
And welcome here. You made a valid point.

@the feeling lioness
Okay.

I do this often. I call it going underground. Cut off from the world, phones, and internet. It's pretty therapeutic for otherwise internet addicts like me :D
