Tambrahmo Sapien Punjabeii

Bee has a description of the Tambrahmo Sapien on his occasional journal.

"When 2 Tam Brahms meet, they discuss a third, when 3 meet they discuss other species' members, when more than 3 meet, they discuss topics like 'Comparative growth rates in standards of living of China and India' or 'Changes in socio-cultural patterns of urban India fuelling prosperity in rural India' or 'the inherent fallacies in the parliamentary democracy system' with their collective decibel levels of discussion varying in direct proportion to the proximity of non-tam Brahms, especially those possessing XY chromosome. A lone tambrahm has this brooding intellectual look about him giving an impression that he is trying to mentally divide 233 by 17 while he is actually benchmarking himself vis-à-vis other tambrahms and later on with other homo sapiens as well. This is a favorite pastime of the Tam Brahms."

I found out that the one redeeming quality of this species is that they are "consciously self-effacing and painfully modest".

However, this quality is painfully open to induced mutation, which can create monsters out of the modest fellows. Biggest cause of such induced mutation is exposure to the Punjabee sun, which has a dangerously high quotient of boasts. This excites the mild Tambrahmo DNA and makes them painfully immodest about their achievements (which are many). This mutation is restricted to males of the species.

These mutants (called Tambrahmo Sapien Punjabeii) can cause immense harm within a radius of 10 metres, and are especially dangerous to ear-drums. Also, they mysteriously turn into babe-magnets and their sacred thread would have many notches detailing their conquests. A particularly dangerous mutant was caught hitting on forty-three women within an hour, while propounding on the rising Sensex. Often these men are found in Ivy League Business Schools or senior and middle management positions in MNCs in India.

They are generally difficult to tell from ordinary Tambrahmos though they sometimes give themselves away with flashy branded clothes and accessories (dark glasses, french beards, newest Nokia cellphone).

P.S.: I hear that Bee's blog is blocked/ unaccessible in certain places. Some offices believe that his harmless journal (mostly harmless) is a porn site. Hopefully, the problem will go away. Otherwise, I will, with his permission, post the entire tract.

Strange, it's working for me. I suspect Tambrahm's biggest enemy - TDC, at work.

Comic, I wish it was that easy. Sometimes they lurk under ambiguous TS Anand (Can be Thiruvenkata Swaminathan Anand or can be Tejbir Singh Anand) and the like.

Sometimes, they don't even change their names.
