thus occured the rebirth of Sherlock Holmes…

I guess A.C. Doyle knew there would, one day, take birth in the world of wordpress, the biggest mystery ever…and that a bunch of detectives would set out to solve it–>and hence the plural “Holmes” as opposed to “Holme” πŸ˜‰ . But the author also knew none would be as sharp as him or his creation Sherlock–>hence the “lock” in the name (so no one would use the name freely πŸ˜€ ).

In case you are all wondering (I’m assuming I have new readers everyday) which this mystery is that is being discussed, its none other than the Mystery of the Mirrorcracked Vagaries of Love“. The story in brief:

The protagonist is a very popular citizen of WordPress, the most literate country in the World Wide Web. An author by profession, he is a self-proclaimed “decent guy, who deserves the good things in life…”. Well, apparently, one day he realises that grave injustice has been inflicted on him…he has been caught in the web of love–>only, the spider was already ‘taken’! The spider has spun the web, made a cocoon and captivated him within–>all his friends and well-wishers could see it; but the spider itself is invisible: making it a tough job for his friends, readers, admirers and the rest of WordPress to find the spider. They say necessity is the mother of invention…and this being an obvious and highly critical time of need, these people re-invent themselves…and become re-incarnations of none other than Sherlock Holmes!

Well, as an admirer of A.C. Doyle, I must say I’m deeply surprised by the ‘abilities’ of these detectives…they put 2 and 2 together and came up with 5! Hehe…just imagine Sherlock HolmesΒ  following a case closely for a week and finally saying the culprit is Nancy Drew! LOL…i couldn’t believe it when i read through various people’s ‘clues’ and ‘hints’ and “i’ve got it!”s…and the most shocking was RJ’s question…hehe…anyway, let the game go on…!

Well, to any new visitior to my blog, this would be a mystery even to this alphabet…but to existing readers and occasional visitors from a certain friend’s blog, this would make perfect sense…dear detectives, Nancy Drew is just another amatuer detective–>she is nowhere close to Mr Holmes, of course…and she definitely is not a criminal by herself ;).

P.S: Mr Especiality, thanks for letting me know “the suspect” and grrrr…for not letting me know “how you solved the (still-unsolved) case”. And yea…here is the credit I said i’d give to the protagonist…

P.S of P.S: Mr Protagonist, thanks for the free publicity–>i already feel like a celebrity (your readers and many more would know why I’m feeling the way I do πŸ˜€ ). But I hope your readers know the difference between a Nancy Drew and a Phoolan Devi πŸ˜€ . I don’t mind being either, tho…both were celebs in their own ways πŸ˜‰ !

P.S of P.S of P.S: Everyone, no matter how indifferernt you are to the world around you, a person’s love-life will always be of top-interest…and of contagious interest–>or so i’ve realised lately πŸ˜€ ! And now, i go off to bed, a much-enlightened celebrity! πŸ™‚

  1. Sherlock Holmes is long gone, but his spirit lives on! πŸ˜€
    If only the protagonist knew how to woo the spider… The protagonist is a very nice guy, and the spider should not treat him like this… The spider has to have a heart and give the protagonist a chance to prove his love for the spider… After all, the protagonist willingly entered the spider’s web and not the other way around… The spider should show some consideration at least… Once the spider gets to know the protagonist well, she can decide whether to continue with the protagonist or not… πŸ™‚
    Or maybe, just maybe, the spider is hesitating to give the protagonist a chance because its afraid … Is the spider afraid that it might just get entrapped in the protagonist’s web? πŸ™‚

  5. @Anu – LOL! You are too cute πŸ˜€

    @Spider/Ms Charming – Where ever you are, MR.PROTAGONIST is trying real hard for love and I think he should be given his chance. You never know!! πŸ˜›

    @MR.PROTAGONIST – I am not interfering in your love matters here, but your proposal is very sweet and if I were a girl I would be floored by those words and my alphabets would have been different πŸ˜€ πŸ˜›

    @All – Love the person who loves you rather than the person whom you love πŸ˜€ Also, I just made this one up!!! πŸ˜€

    @Scorpria – Nice post πŸ˜€

    @Nik – πŸ™‚ How was the dinner? Ms. Charming would not reveal anything πŸ™‚


  6. @Anu
    Am not a spider…if yu need to connect me to any insect at all, it’d be a scorpio πŸ˜€ otherwise, am very human! Totally πŸ™‚


    πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    “Love the person who loves you rather than the person whom you love” is the exact dialogue you should be telling NIKHIL, not me! πŸ™‚ (And i dont think yu made it up…unless yu’ve already told it to a dozen malayalam script-writers πŸ˜€ )

    i’m sure you are enjoying the attention πŸ˜€ The spider apparently is illiterate and doesnt know this discussion is going on!

    I think its about time i quit wordpress πŸ˜€ People have no faith! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€

    @Scorpria (again) – All the best! πŸ˜€

    Mr.Protagonist – What do you think about the movie? πŸ˜€


  9. Found in this in sunday TOI ..couldnt resist posting it

    Black widow spiders spin a deadlier web when they are hungry, and a fortress to have a better protection from predators when they are sated with food. Research conducted by Jacquelyn Zevenbergen and Todd Blackledge at the University of Akron in Ohio, the study showed that the spiders fed daily with crickets spun tangled masses of non-sticky silk. The researchers also found that similar-size spiders, when starved for a week, tended to spin sheets of silk connected to the ground by taut, sticky strands.
