The new word of the town *OFFENDED*

Offended? Really that’s all you got ? May be you could have tried “Bored ” Or  “Tired” Or even  the F word! But , why offended darling ?

Well , this is  in reference to the latest Tanmay Bhatt CONTROVERSY. For the uninformed, this guy is a stand up comedian , who made a FUN Video about two Indian celebrities and posted it on social media. The fans of these celebrities got ” offended ” by it and want it removed. 

I really don’t know whether its real public who express their anger on such “Issues” or are they the ” Robots” we always have to prove we aren’t by entering those captchas ?? 

Because this fact is quite disturbing. No , not the existence of robots on Facebook.

But the fact that even in this age and time people got so much free time and emotions that their sentiments get hurt on  each and every joke that is ever made?

Do they Google the most silly thing present today, watch it and then get offended? 

Because ,lets make things clear first. I personally did not find the video even funny. Neither did my friends ( I made them watch it 😛 )  There was no joke .   😦
 And may be that’s the only thing i was hurt about. My expectations not being fulfilled. 

This has become a trend, specially in India. Not only in regard to this video, its just a needle in the haystack! People are using their “Right to speech” to take away other’s right to speech . 

Oh , you say it’s not Good for the society ?

Well yes. There are many things not good for the society. Unlike them , this has a solution. Don’t like it? DONT WATCH IT . Simple 🙂

Because if you were really worried about the society , you would have long gone ,thanks the heart attacks and nervous breakdowns you would have suffered.

Because you would have been hurt ,each time a girl was raped.Whether she was wearing a skirt or whether she was a 2 year old kid !

There would have been a threat to your religious sentiments, each time an innocent animal was sacrificed in the name of faith! And not when a person poked fun at some Godman.

 It would have pained you to see dirty naked little tiny kids beg on the streets in the scorching summer. And then get elated even on receiving a single rupee.

Your anger would have lost its limits when you would have come across the crores of taxpayer’s money being used by corrupt politicians for their Birthday celebrations. Not when a Bollywood movie was made .

You would have been offended when a young Indian sport-star was unable to represent his country , not for the lack of talent , but for the lack of proper infrastructure . And not when someone wore a skirt to her tennis match ..

Trust me , you would have been offended by humanity , every time you read that another bomb was dropped off in Syria or Pakistan or Palestine or  some other place. (Only that would have happened , in case you were actually aware that the world does not revolve around you  🙂 )

And since you are alive and kicking, I am sure none of this happened. There was never an outrage over any of these. Do not mention the various Tweets or Re-tweets or Facebook posts you have shared for the cause. The truth is , they DON’T MATTER . ( Heart breaking , is it ? ) 

 This only  proves you don’t bat an eye lid for the cause of the society.
You are one bored human , who wants cheap publicity by misusing other people’s names.

Calling me selfish , are you ? Well, I will take that as a compliment.  It’s better than being a dual faced hypocrite . Any day!. Try it out  🙂 


P.S
 This does not mean I support non sense humour. I just don’t violently oppose it. These people work for trps.  Dont trend them on media , they will understand and give you better jokes next time 😀

DAY 1 : Things that make me Happy .

I have a new name for myself.

 Ms Lazybones.

 I am so lousy , so lazy and yet so pretty ^-^ . ( lame as well ? 😛 )

This blog has been around , waiting for me to update it and I  am all like, No, Not today. For days and weeks.
So  for the sake of you, My Peppynoytes, I take up a challenge.

The 30 Day writing challenge.  b1

I am going to blog.
Random things.
About me.
About life.
About us 🙂

And today its going to be the 10 THINGS THAT MAKE ME REALLY HAPPY.

This looks so easy ans simple to list. But do you realise the amount of pain I had to go through when I was striking off some points “ that could not make it to the list”??? Oh boy! Do you ?

So well with a hand on my heart and a billion dollar smile on my face , lets get started

1. Home made food.  b3
To understand why this is on number 1 , you would have to be either a hosteller or a corporate victim , who survives on McD and Dominos for 4 out of 7 days a week . 😦
My plate may not be served with all those luxurious and impossible- to- pronounce dishes.Just  Plain, pure, boring food made by my mom . Dal Chawal , if you must.
I will relish that  to the last bite. OM NOM NOM all the way!

2.Talking.b4
Anytime. Anywhere. Anyone .( Okay, not every one actually :P) . Anything. I love to chatter away all the time. Never too lazy for that . 😀
You will listen me blabber about my life. Your crush. SRK’s movies .The new restaurant.Lilly singh. Pretty much anything.

3.New clothes.
Crisp. Clean. Pretty clothes. Its like I don’t even need any accessories the first time I wear a new dress. I have  a 100 watt smile pasted across my face. 😀

4. Reading. Old books.b5
Like the really old –rusty –brown paged books.  I  am not a kindle person  by choice.  The feeling when you hold a book and curl up in your bed , its beyond my capability to describe in words. And their smell? Oh My God!  It drives me crazy. I feel like it even turns me on! 😉

5. Helping Friends.
I feel so satisfied when I am of use to my friends. Whether its giving advices, listening to their troubles or even giving my notes.
Yeah I also feel happy when I help them pass a test, but can’t say it in public with so many judge-y eyes looking at me “ That’s not what a friend would do!”. Yes. But exam time  is not the time to  preach. Just tell the answers . 😛 😛 .

6.Writing . b8
Of course. This HAD to be on the list. Framing sentences with just the right choice of words to describe exactly what you are feeling. That’s an achievement. And the pleasure is all mine *-*.
But i don’t like typing . So you see, that’s how it all gets delayed 😀
Give me a pen and paper. All my notebooks have my many  masterpieces jotted down in them . 😛

7.Afternoon naps.C__Data_Users_DefApps_AppData_INTERNETEXPLORER_Temp_Saved Images_32027e2f714e06ff5ff305ec7a34db38
When the sun is displaying all its might and you shut the drapes, drink a glass of cool water , close your eyes and just get lost in the magical word of “Sleep”. Nothing calms me down more than this. I don’t even realise what day or century it is sometimes when I wake up . Oh yes.  I  am back to reality again .    -_-

8.The October weather.
The clear bright sky. Cool breezes. The nature at its best , if you ask me. Its not biting cold. Its not burning hot. Neither is it still and dull.  Its just perfect. I am at my peppiest and happiest best in Octobers.

“Outside, a gusty October breeze was combing leaves from the trees and sending them across her backyard in colorful skitters.”

Stephen King, Full Dark, No Stars

9. My BIRTHDAYS.
With the entire world wishing me to be happy on that day , can I help not being THE HAPPIEST this day?  Oh I love the attention , the wishes  and of course the gifts that I receive .  I am on top of the world on the 6th of july . ( You see what I did there ? ;). Yes wish me this year 😛 ).
And I feel like I must mention here , that it’s the entire concept of birthdays that make me happy.  Who was the great person  to have thought of it!  I feel like it would be a woman. Am I too sexist ? 😛 . But guys  are just so normal even on birthdays! :P.
Everything looks so beautiful and decorated. then there is that delicious fancy cake 😀

10. The WEIRD STUFF.
okay . I may come across as insane, but there is this one thing that literally makes me so happy , I feel like blessing anyone who comes across.
 You see, with the sweet blood I have, a lot and believe me A LOT of mosquitoes bite me. Specially on my feet.  NO! THIS DOESN’T MAKE ME HAPPY!!.
But when I pour ice cold , chilly water on these bites, it’s a heavenly feeling altogether. And no, don’t put your feet under the tap. Don’t ruin it. Slowly  and slowly. Drop by drop . Treasure the pleasure ,mate!

There I did it.  10 things 😀
Lets see what tomorrow brings . ❤

Manners cost nothing. Try them maybe?

Have you ever felt the need to literally bang your head on the wall , so hard that each nerve of your brain smashes and blood oozes out and the muscles cant go back to their regular contraction and relaxation ,because they become so rigid?

No?

Me neither.

But what i am feeling is the need to bang my head slightly till it hurts a bit and then kick myself in the face. Actually just pretend to .

(Now who would want to hurt such a pretty face ? 😉 )  This I am sure , you have too.

Had it not been the land of Mahatma , the pioneer of non violence, I would have done this to others , though.

Because its so frustrating to literally experience the lack of basic etiquettes from human beings around you.

And lo! i am not even asking for them to you know ,  RSVP me about the dinner party  I invited them too ! Because, its too much too ask from people who give a ” miss call” ( a  single ring and then they disconnect) ,cos they missed my call earlier. -_-

So dear, if you are one these , then take this post as a final chance , an ultimatum to rectify your ways of dealing with me and other normal people ,before we take the first few lines literally , except just use your head instead! 😛 😛

Yes i know its difficult for you suddenly change and become a better manner-full person in just a few days. You haven’t been able to do that in at least two decades of your existence, so i understand the difficulty. Lets just try baby steps this time.

Try ,try and try harder till you don’t succeed in not doing the following. Okay ? 🙂

  • Borrowing things and having a memory loss :  In case you weren’t aware of the beautiful word “Return” ,let me teach it you . One of the many meanings of the words is to Give BACK , hand BACK , send BACK , anything you take. So whether its money,clothes,books or even a pen , for the love of God, “return”it back to its owner, before you loose the memory of having borrowed anything at all. If you want to keep it , Steal it . Do not Borrow it and keep it . Okay ? 🙂

 

  • Awakening the DJ spirit at odd hours and places : Yeah , I know you love music . Music is love for eternity. Its calm and soothing. And its the soul of every party :D. But, start playing those party numbers at 3 in the night or in the library or in the train , trust me , i will make you eternal . Okay ? 🙂 .Yes. Those earphones can save you , obviously !

 

  • Being the loud speaker : You love to talk? That’s good. Talking helps share our feelings with friends. But if you talk in those decibels , your friends will go deaf. And your secrets will be out in the open if there are people around you, not your friends. we don’t want to know what your boyfriend asked you to wear.Neither are we interested to laugh on the joke you thought was funny  .  So well, just Ssshhhhh…Okay? 🙂

 

  • So are you the Rude Dude ? : Do you have that inner god/goddess of yours tell you that you are the master of the world ? And that the other earthly beings are just some support staff? Heart breaking as it may be, its not true darling . Speak only what you can listen. Okay ? 🙂

 

  • The Damsel in Distress. Forever.! : You are my favourite kind. I am in awe of your sheer ability to play this card every time you are asked to do some work. You are always sick . You are always unaware. And oh You are also always the victim. Fellow , these things work once and twice. Other times , the people around you are just being generous and ignorant. Get a grip of yourself and stop trying to find ways to excuse yourself. Do some work. Contribute to this world, you otherwise little piece of waste. Okay?

 

  • The private users of public property : Its called Public for a reason, mate!. Its OURS. Not MINE. Stop scribbling on the tables, stop tearing the seat covers , you get it . As one friend points out ” Leave your toilet and Newspaper just the way you want it”. Okay? 🙂

Hoping for the best as always  😛 😛 .

Ahhh..finally! Writing down all of it  has so eased down my frustration . Its time I welcome my cheery self back again  :*  ❤

P.S : Do share your views of other such dramatic kinds of people to be wary of. It may help them 😛 😛

 

The Fear of The Stupid .

Well it exists . It is called ” Dumasaphobia ” or The fear of stupid people .

And i just dont have a fear , I am dead scared!!! And that’s partly because, i dont know what reaction their actions can cause in me!  I am scared for them actually. 😉

SO , do you suffer from any such ” phobia” ?? . you may not know it as of now , but it is indispensable to have a reality check .

We will start with WHO ?

Who  are these people?

Do they look different from us ? maybe four legs , two above and two below??

No. It doesn’t matter how much i wish they start growing legs on their heads ,the fact is they look normal.

like you and me .

They  could be anyone , your classmates, your co workers , your neighbour ,just any one . They can be found in groups and could also be a one man army . but here’s the catch  – do not underestimate the loner!

Next comes the most important question : HOW TO IDENTIFY ONE?

Now this can be really tough to begin with , because out there , stupids can be seasoned ones or  novices .

The seasoned ones bring out this voice from within you , every damn time you see them , hear them or even think of them  – ” Slap. The . Idiot. Slap. Now. Slap. Slap. ”

oh! this is so me !! 😛
This is because you have tried and tested all other basic prevention tips like ignoring , giving them more chances, sympathising with them and worse of all even “participating with them”

Gee+_75886241c374564959d3eeed60f21abe

( God knows what all i have gone through in this last stage 😛 )

The beginners are  the ones you still use the above techniques with 🙂

The last part is about HOW MANY ? If  you feel that there are just a handful of stupids , you can calm down and relax. ( You could be one of these though 😛 ).

But if you are anything like me , you should be worried!! Because every third person i meet turns out to be stupid. (At least since the last three years i have joined college 🙂 .)

Any SYMPTOMS you may ask ? Well i can only  share my experiences with you

I feel my veins will pop out of my head. Once the ” actions” start i just stare into blank space and count my heartbeats rising.

My voice becomes inaudible because i am actually shrieking in the ultrasonic frequency range . 🙂  They think they are being cute and funny and cute again , but to me, they are just being irritating and cranky fools. It becomes impossible for me to even sit straight faced . My head aches. And then , in the end i only think how unfair God has been to them :(.

Now that you have read about it all , i welcome you to my world . But lets not be sad about it . We the ” dumasaphobics ” will not let the power of stupid boggle us down . WE WILL FIGHT . 😛  😛  😛 . Lets say our prayers together

Amen .
Amen .

I  am still working on the tips to fight for our rights, on ways to tackle the attack of the stupid. Will post them soon. If you have any suggestions do share 🙂 .

P.S-  I learnt  the word DUMASOPHOBIA ,when i tumbled across this site
