Mahendra´s wet dream

During my time over the seas there have been many people, places, and weather patterns that I´ve missed. One of these is the indomitable Mr Raghunath. Why, oh why, can´t I watch the SABC3 News over the Internet?

As I was walking back to the train station in Brighton, I had a particularly sharp pang of Mahendra nostalgia when I passed GBties.com. At first I thought it would be Mahendra´s wet dream, but realised most of the ties were too garish even for the Raghunath´s tastes. Unfortunately, I couldn´t go inside, as it was closed, but had some fun window shopping - with Mahendra in mind. I think he might have liked the purple tie (second row, fourth from the right). Which one do you think would have taken the Raghunath´s fancy? (Btw, you can click on the pic for a close-up view).

I actually met Mahendra at the SABC a few years ago.

He only dresses formal and wears those ties on screen. Otherwise its just tracksuits. He usually has tracksuit bottoms on during the news.

Lucky you! Have checked out http://mahendras-ties.blogspot.com? And did you see the Top Billing episode?

Mahendra looks like he's put on a bit of weight recently. He's definitely sporting a bit of a double chin these days.

Thanks for the info. I can´t wait to see him when I get back to SA on Thursday! Btw, have enjoyed reading your blog via Bec ;)

As I have enjoyed reading yours! And since I discovered Mahendra's Ties, I find I understand the Raghunath more completely than I ever dreamt possible, and for that I thank you.
