Arvind Chenji

Arvind ChenjiArvind Chenji. Warm hearted, humble and a great sense of humour to moot. Oh! And by the way he also happens to be the most famous, talked-about and happening photographer in town…if that's not known by all the fashion gurus and aficionados by now. Chenji also holds the credit for being one amongst the few photographers from India who worked for the much-acclaimed National Geographic Channel.

He is an Image Engineer who can not only create the right image mood and setting for any brand, but also visualize the impact and returns that an image will get for his clients, in the long term. And this comes from having been doing just this for over two decades with remarkable success

Truly and completely

So saying, and having eaten a tenth of all the food that they had ordered, they paid the bill and left the table.“Ridiculous”, snapped Yadav. “The government has fixed a price of fifty paise per kilo and these people are spoiling the whole show. Don’t look at it from the money angle alone. Remember, it is precious food that they are wasting.

”Narasimha Rao piped in, “But they claim to be supporting the farmers by buying tomatoes from them at five rupees a kg and two thousand kilos of them!”Goverdhan Yadav looked sad, “Yes Anjaliji, what is the present generation coming to? I understand that everyone has to pay a five-hundred rupee entrance fee to the festival.

The government will of course ban it.”Ranjit looked a little bored. He was wondering what would be the share these two sharks would ask for in exchange of the new contract for supplying sub-standard medicines to the government hospitals.

“In the meanwhile Goverdhanji, have you heard of the new money wasting idea our youngsters are coming up with? They want to have a festival where everyone pelts each other with tomatoes?,” said Anjali.The waiter, trained as he was to smile at all times, blanched. The sum total of the cost of the desserts was more than what he and his wife made in a month.“Since there are four of us, and all of us like good desserts, let’s have four large chocolate mousse helpings, topped with strawberry dressing and four of the largest ice creams you have.

And not to forget, a large bowl of the special khubaani ka meetha, topped with fresh cream,” Anjali ordered. She smiled and added, “I know that this hotel gets its apricots for the khubaani from the Indo-Pak border and they are really good.”Goverdhan Yadav bared his fangs. One would think he bared his fangs whenever he made an effort to smile. The paan-stained red teeth made it seem so. He was rumoured to eat at least two gold leaf paans every day, each costing a couple of thousand rupees.Together, they were the delight of most diabetologists and countless dress designers trying valiantly to clothe them to look svelte.Not only did Anjali know a lot about desserts, desserts also knew her very well.

They sat very comfortably on her mid-section, hind-section and actually all over rather comfortably. So also with her husband Ranjit. Narasimha Rao, the trade union leader who spouted ethics and equal opportunities at every given occasion, practiced everything otherwise. Wearing his trade mark, cheap white khadi shirt and trousers, crisply ironed, he looked like an aggrieved shark in general. One who has had a prime bite of a sailors shank taken away by a bigger shark. He smiled and nodded at Anjali. “Madam, you order,” he said, “You are the best person who knows desserts.” Goverdhan Yadav, a cabinet minister, also nodded.“Sweetheart, order the desserts,” said Ranjit, smiling at the other two guests at the table.

Anjali nodded absent-mindedly. Forty-something against her husband’s forty-six, she was usually absent-minded (except when it came to spending money), and Ranjit could easily afford it. The last week at the hotel in Goa was one of the frequent whims they had indulged in, ostensibly to celebrate their waking up together one evening! Ranjit after all made money by the bagfuls and had no qualms about spending it on himself. Ranjit Shah, hot shot business magnate, pushed away the half-eaten plate of mutton rogan josh at the five-star hotel. “This is nice,” he said to his wife Anjali, “but not as good as the one we had at the Goa last week.”The recently planned tomatina festival in Hyderabad brought to fore the underlying natures of Indians. Truly and completely.
