Abstract: The Inimitable Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse

The Inimitable Jeeves

P.G. Wodehouse has more than 100 books to his credit. The most loved characters of Wodehouse are of course Bertie Wooster and Jeeves.

Bertie belongs to the category of the ‘idle rich’and Jeeves is his highly sophisticated and proper butler. The novel ‘The Inimitable Jeeves’ explains in detail exactly why Jeeves is inimitable. Bertie is a character who is, well, a little dumb and who could be made to do anything with a little pursuing. Therefore he gets into tight spots too often. Another interesting character in the novel is Bingo, a close friend of Bertie (he reminds Bertie of this whenever he wants him to do something for him).

Bingo is a strong believer of love. The only problem is that he falls in love with every other girl who he gets acquainted with. As soon as the love bug infects him, he becomes her slave. But unfortunately every love affair meets with a tragedy. Now Bertie’s problem is that he is made to get involved in several of Bingo’s so called 'projects'. Usually it ends up in some sort of trouble or embarrassment for him which would naturally require the brains of Jeeves to find a solution.

Finally everything works out to be fine for everyone with the help of Jeeves of course (evidently a little bad name for Bertie could not be avoided). See why Jeeves is inimitable??


I have never read PGW. I want to now. :)

Moon goes super

Tonight was a big night what with the list of things happening to the moon. Blue moon, blood moon, super moon. Also it was the big night when people looked up from their smartphone to the skies just for a moment and took selfies with the 'superstar' of the night.

I was curious to know more about the event. So I opened the newspaper, which was an event in itself, and read about it. It seems the last time that these three events took place together was in 1866 March 31st.
And by the time it happens again, we will be in the netherworlds. The other facts I noted were these:

Blood moon- The moon takes on an orange tint due to earth's shadow during lunar eclipse.
Blue moon- The second full moon day in a month.
Super moon- The moon is closest to the earth.

At 6.30 we were gazing upwards with not a very clear idea of what was going to happen. But the moon did not appear. It seemed the moon was taking a long time to show its face. I thought lazily that there might be a hartal the …

Review of Malayalam Movie Nadodikkattu (1987)

Nadodikkattu is another one of my favourite Malayalam movie. This is indeed an all time classic comedy movie.

Movie: Nadodikkattu
Language: Malayalam
Genre: Comedy Written by: Srinivasan
Director: Sathyan Anthikadu
Cast: Mohanlal, Srinivasan, Shobana, Thilakan, Innocent
Sequels: Pattanapravesham, Akkare Akkare Akkare

Nadodikkattu is the story of Dasan and Vijayan, two simpletons who unknowingly (and knowingly) falls into one mess after another in their struggle to become something in their lives.

Vijayan: (Played by Srinivasan) He is a very funny guy and more idiotic than Dasan. Dasan takes advantage of him a lot- like making him cook, do household chores and constantly reminding him that he is not a g…
