Cafe N v 17

Welcome to the 17th thread of the series.

About Us

Who we are
We are a group of fun-loving people interested in having unbridled fun and talking about the lighter side of life on Sajha.

We are unapologetic about what we say because we don't put too much thought into our words. We have come to learn after all these episodes that when your goal is unrestrained and harmless fun, you can only be so careful or thoughtful about what you say. We mean no harm towards anyone and welcome everyone to join the fun.

The Cafe series, as it has evolved over the weeks and months, is an effort to create a community of like minded people who want to have fun - or as SNDY likes to says - "be good and have fun". That is the only clause in our one-line constitution.

What do we do in the Cafe?
Meeting, greeting and sharing is what we do a lot of. As well as singing, dancing, needling (one another of course), opining, joking and anything else to kill time. Not to forget serving and partaking virtual lattes, biscottis, tea, coffee, samosas, jalebis and other tasty baked goods that we take out of the Google Images oven. We've also posted videos, dedicated songs, confessed our crushes, talked about weather, food, work, sports - anything that is fun.

History

History is never uncontroversial and ours too might not be free from it.This is version is subject to revision as members deem fit.

This whole thing was started by Hi Nanu and instigated by SNDY. Back in those days, SNDY had so many people to say hi to that she would go on each thread where her friends had posted, and say hi, regardless of what the topic was. It had a positive impact on the site, IMO, because it made conversations lighter and soon others started following that trend and we had several threads where the topic might have been something like the "Collapse of the European Monetary Union" but other than the first few posts, the conversation turned out to be about anything but that.

So one day Hi Dai opened a thread called "Thread for greeting each other". Little did he realize what he had created. That thread filled a vacuum in Sajha, as we saw it, for friendly conversation between people that was free of name calling, personal attacks and caste/creed/school/language prejudices. This was back in the dark days of the caste wars and turf struggles. That thread quickly filled up and reach it's maximum posts in a matter of days and another one was started. And then another and another ...

At that time someone jokingly (perhaps contemptuously) referred to us as the "Nautanki" group. We took on that joke and called our self the Nuatanki Briagade and fulfilled SNDY's long running desire to become a Brigadier. So there were several threads (or episodes as we called them) under the Nautanki banner. We got to a point where we ran the joke to the ground and thought it might be time for a name change. We figured a word like Nautanki can wear out after a while and we suspect it might have deterred some people, who would otherwise have posted, from posting on the thread .

We held a poll on whether or not we should change our name. We decided, by an overwhelming majority, to change the name. It was Juggy who came up with the name "Cafe N". The rest, as they say, is history.

Geography
As of last count, in alphabetical order of countries and US states: Alabama, Australia, Belgium, California, Canada, Connecticut, Denmark, Florida, Illinois, India, Iraq, Italy, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nepal, Netherlands, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, New Zealand, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, UK, Washington,Washington DC. Some of us haven't disclosed our locations and I might have missed some so the list is probably longer.



Languages
Languages heard in the Cafe: English, Nepali, Punjabi, Hindi, Newari, Sanskrit, French, German, Gujrati, Spanish, Esperanto and mixtures and derivatives thereof. The list is bound to grow as we plan to expand to all the corners of the world - although we haven't quite figured how.

Politics
Constitutional Assembly elections are slated for a some time the future, around NPL2US's recently announced wedding date. The Fun party and the Sun party are running neck to neck so we've figured we are in for some fun and sun regardless of the outcome.

But seriously we tend to leave our politics, class, caste, creed, schooling, religion, Indian idol preferences and anything that could affect the fun on the other side of our keyboards or for other threads. Thapap and Loote may battle it out like there is no tomorrow on other threads, but they've been good buddies here.

How do I join ?
Post something, anything, in the "be good and have fun" spirit and you are guaranteed to receive a warm welcome

Cappie, though it seems you are discouraging people to post here.. and start posting on the still non- existant new thread.... I will still post here. :D Mav phuchhe... Of course I can read devnagari !! I am a Nepali and Indian in devnagari too (where I did a lot of my schooling). But I dont read it because I am not a good reader of the .. and after a few lines it hurts my head... Specially when the font size is soo small!! The irony is I read hindi faster then I read Nepali, dont ask me what the difference is. I havebt studied Nepali since I was in my 2nd grade!! Ugh. Why did you ask? Mummy ji, Sat Sri Akal. Ki gal hai mummy ji no hi no hello for me? Hello to Nepal ko chora, sursum, Sirish and everyone else

I think, every episode of cafe has to have a "theme" and make it more specific and make it interesting. Just thinking aloud !!
