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 😀

Silly Billy!

Is it me or does someone  else actually make this face ” -_-” , ( yes, exactly like that ) when people ask you statements with a question mark at the end ??

Statements end with a full stop. Have i gone nuts?

No I haven’t . These other people have.

The people who ask you such obvious questions , that you don’t know, whether you are actually  supposed to answer it OR just ignore it OR do “Hain???” (O.o ? )

e76682c5f087b45ae9c5380f1f64e5bd
UMM…Is that a trick question ???  :O

So as i sit down and think of these SILLY BILLY QUESTIONS , I  came up with answers , not every one will be  HAPPY to hear :P.

239150296e22c2e757a8c4f760bfb2e7
But as far as i am concerned, it would at least give me Satisfaction 🙂

  • So you go to this restaurant with your family, all decked up , looking for a place to sit and there comes the waiter . ” Sir/Mam, DO YOU NEED A TABLE?”
    Well , no , obviously, I don’t . The flooring of the place is very intricately designed. Can we have a carpet for 4 please . Please . 🙂 🙂 🙂 :):)
  • You are somewhere. Could be anywhere. Along comes another human and mistakenly steps on your toe. *Ouch*. “I AM SORRY. DID THAT HURT?”
    Oh, no, it didn’t. If cotton balls fell on my feet, they would hurt. Your pencil heels/ sturdy shoes..NO , of course they didn’t  ^_^. It feels so soft actually.
  • You come back to home sweet home. The person who opens the door is smiling all the way “OH.HAVE YOU COME ?”.
    Have I ? I don’t think so , must be my spirit at work again ! i am still on my way home. Never listens to me. Running around always! -_-
  • And now that you are home , you take out food, sit down and just start devouring on the delicacies ” OH! ARE YOU EATING ? ”
    Puff.. NO! I don’t eat. I am practising magic .Its a trick . I can make food disappear. This is ain’t ‘eating’ . yeah!
  • You have a nice bath . All freshened up , you come out draped in your robe. “OH,HAVE YOU HAD A BATH?”
    Nooooo… Why would you think so ? Its the Hydrogen and Oxygen molecules reacting. 1:2 something . Me? I am just the catalyst  😉
  • Shopping in the mall , picking out clothes and there is always that one long lost friend who comes across “OMG. How long its been. SO WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?”
    Hi!..yeah its been some time. Well, nothing much, I come here to listen to the music .Not only does the FM has great signals here, the playlist of the store is awesome too. Although , I always notice , people shopping here , like always. Who does THAT in a shopping mall!!!! Right?? O.o
  • And this one is my all time favourite !!!!

To Deal with THE STUPID

Welcome back Dumasaphobics 😉 . 

If you don’t know/remember dumasaphobia, do check out this link first  – The FEAR of THE STUPID

As promised , here i am ,with tips to effectively deal with the stupid

And like every other thing there is a list  of the do’s and the don’ts .

Seeing and feeling ,  the intensity of the problem , I will not refrain you from taking actions in your defence. Therefore there is a very small list of the don’ts

  • Don’t kill them. 

That’s it.

If  you are any bit like me , then I understand that the very first instinct is to pick up the object nearest to you (from a flower vase or a knife to even a handbag ) and take away their right to life , which they have been clearly misusing. 

murder (1)

However all peace you attain would go in vain, since you will now have to go to jail.

So well ,it would be stupid (oops!) of you to take this step!.

While we are on the topic of killing things, I have read at a lot of places and been advised a lot to beat these people at their own game with their own rules .  This could mean killing the rude stupids with kindness and  killing the dumb acting stupids with higher levels of dumbness.

Although this does sound really fun and interesting and also satisfying at some levels , it can really backfire in case of ultra stupids on the other side! With quite an experience of dealing with them I  can say that after a while , they start to enjoy it and you are left with feeling of being used again and again.

Well then with the most easiest and satisfying option done away with , what are the possible DO’s that MUST be followed. 

  1. ACCEPT –
    The first step to solve any problem in life is acceptance. Accept that these people are stupid. That you can not do anything ,any damn thing about it . That God has been unfair to them  or to you , what ever is easier to accept!  Understand the situation in hand .
  2. SMILE .-
    Like literally, keep those lips curved right up , always. Onto their face.
    🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 :).
    Inside , you maybe tearing up like THE HULK , but outside you remain a sweetie pie, the harbinger of happiness.       🙂    🙂 .
    bitch
    People will call you fake , but remember it is for the society’s good . When their actions fail to have a reaction , gradually the actions will also fail .
  3. I.G.N.O.R.E
    The most golden words ever said on this planet are definitely “Ignorance is a bliss ” . Yes it is difficult but not impossible . Accept that the person is stupid , but refuse to acknowledge them.  Their could be a zillion other things to think about at that time like the colour of your nail paint ,  the weather conditions and how the Met Dept always gets its prediction wrong. You can talk to unicorns if you want.
    But just don’t pay attention to the stupid acts going around you .
    you don’t want to go crazy .
    Your life is precious after all.
  4.  IF YOU MUST , TALK FACTS –
    In case you do have to discuss and talk and adjust with the other side , then refrain yourself from discussing opinions .
    Because to them , not only do your opinions don’t matter but facts , figures and reality are also equally useless
    . -_- .
    Follow the principle to only talk facts and only listen to facts . To ensure no arguments further, keep Google available.jellyfish.jpg
  5. INTRODUCE TWO OF A KIND
    It is very rare that you find only one of their kind in any place. Go ahead .
    Be the matchmaker .
    Let the like repel like.
    Let there be decreased net stupidity.
  6. PLAY ALONG
    Now this is real fun. “Mirror , Mirror on the wall Who doesn’t want to be the mightiest of all ? ” No one.
    Well , then what better way to de throne the kings and queens and princes and princesses of Stupidity than being more stupid than them ?
    Come on , Play along a bit.
    Play stupid once and then back to normal and back to stupid again .
    Drive the stupids to a level of confusion ,they can’t attack from  😛

 

Well , this is all the gyaan i have to share.
Please feel free to give your opinions and advice for the sake of the DUMASAPHOBIC Society  😀 😀 !!

 

 

 

 

Peppy is the new me!

Well ,that’s one of the weird things about me. i am mentally unstable 😀

oops!

As in , I love changes. I am not the one for the same old boring monotonous stuff for ever and ever. 😉

Also , Dabbang is now relatively an old movie .

Here I am ,refreshing my blog  , to a more beautiful and lively version ,with more updates, more sarcasm and hopefully loads of more readers 😛

Get the Peppiness started ❤ ❤

So well , officially declaring here : Dabbang Notes is now Peppy Notes . :*

Live. Love . SPARKLE !

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? 🙂

c6fec55a184de1bbf0c513913601c218

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 😛 😛

 

What The !!!!!

So , who the hell does Shahrukh Khan think he is? or for that matter even Salman khan? Does Hrithik actually come as close to thinking  he looks like a Greek god???  Can you digest the fact that ladies go gaga over even Akshay Kumar and Arjun Rampal and Shahid Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor? And what about Ranveer Kap…no…Singh !!!!!!

Like why on the face of earth ! ?? And please , for the love of god! Don’t even get started on those firangs! Brad pitt , Tom cruise ..and yeah who is that latest one? Zayn Malik! 

BEFORE YOU SWITCH TABS OR SEND ME HATE MESSAGES, CONTINUE READING. Yeah , again for the love of God!

I thought all of this piece of crap ( yes, i accept it is crap 🙂 ) yesterday while going to my workplace . Even though  i hate as much as the thought of it , i have to take these  one of a kind , truly Indian ( 😀 ) shared autorickhshaws to office .

But mind it, you don’t sit in these . You fit in them .

So once i fit in one of them ,all i could do was stare outside on the road and absorb the breathtaking view of all kinds of road transport, twisting and turning and honking .

And then IT happened. Like it happens every time. Every day . With every one.

A not so young and still not so old  man on the road , on his ravishingly old bike , winked at me . And just to make sure , that i  do see him , he did it again . I had to continue seeing his stupid face and stupid eyes as i couldn’t turn my head around ( i told you, we are fitted and fixed in just one position).

Not that i was surprised by that man .

Nothing new. :/

Today its a wink . Tomorrow its a see-i -eat- pan -and -have -dirty- and-crooked- teeth smile . On other days , someone will try to feel you up . There are days when you will hear the eeriest of comments and yet on  others it will be some song ,that you wont be found even dead listening to.

So yes it was nothing new. i followed the mantra “ignorance is a bliss”, rolled my eyes and closed them .  -_-

Once i closed them , i steered right into the minds of such men and tried to think , what goes on in their mind ???

yeah , that’s when i came out with that crap i wrote before. This is exactly what must be going on their minds!!!!right?

these perverts actually deserve to be the stars.

look at their confidence people!.

All he needs is a wink 😉 , like this to swoon me away on his two wheeler to land of fantasies!!! . They are the Christian Greys of their worlds. My inner goddess should awaken and fast. His songs and comments should fill me with the desires of lust ! Ahh, he is right ! Who the hell these if-looks-could-kill-good-looking-celebs think they are .

Its these roadside romeos we should drool for !

(Trust me , the disgust you felt while just reading this above statement, is nothing when compared to the nauseating disgust i felt while typing it . )

And then , my office came. I OPENED MY EYES. THESE PEOPLE ARE SICK. AND THEY NEED HELP. 

Your help. My help. Our help. Any kind of help. All kind of helps.

You could be the philanthropist reformer of the society and conduct workshops and awareness camps.

OR

The next you come across such a sick person , You could just thrash the living hell out of his system. ( I prefer this ,seriously)

The choice is YOURS. But the need is OURS.

 

Here is a you tube link ,  to one of the just rightly made video on  the issue.

Still Staring ?

Do check it out

BeSafe 🙂

P.S : SRK , I still love you ❤

P.P.S Try and get the Sarcasm right or else you will ruin this  😀

 

 

 

 

Each one teach one _/\_

To all the fellows who believe that only the people with a “doctorate”  or “teachers” degree ( whatever that is called in your country ) are worth of teaching something , i have a question for you below.

stupid
YES. THIS.EXACTLY

Why would you even think like that? Unless of course you can’t . Think. that is.

our teachers may teach us a great deal . but that is not exclusive for them .

Remember how these teachers told us the story of  Robert the  Bruce ? How his victory is still traced back to a spider ?  A teeny tiny eight legged creature who didn’t even know A-B-C ? ( Even though i  am one arachnophobic , every time i do find a spider , somewhere deep at the back of my mind , my hands mentally join in a  “NAMASTE  _/_” to it !)

Coming back , lets just concentrate our focus to the homo sapiens as of now.

A person may be going around , doing his routine life errands, not knowing that you and i are learning our life lessons from him. i am sure the lab boy (15 years old) at my office didn’t know it. He was telling me about his native place while finding the chemicals that needed to be weighed.

learn

Lets name him P. P belonged to villages of Jharkhand ,  a place more than 1000 km away from Delhi , where he was working.  He was still in school , but instead was working here. He would go back in November and give his exams in January though. So why did you come here? Money. For the family. Don’t have a lot of land you see…

At the end he passed it off as a joke “ Isi bahane dilli ghum liya ” ( At least this way i was able to see Delhi ). But i couldn’t . I didn’t see the joke . Here i was sitting in the comfort of my home , forget working for family  , i wouldn’t even  throw garbage until i am scolded. Would i be able to go so far from home if necessity arises? Am i too pampered?

Well , thanks to P , if not anything more i started taking my “luxuries” seriously. No more taking things for granted. No more ordering the house maid around. And yes, throwing the garbage out . Daily .( Although my mom has become really suspicious of it 😛 ) .

Guys, keep your eyes and ears open.  You don’t know what or who may teach you THAT ONE LIFE CHANGING LESSON . Your parents ,your friends, your pet,  your neighbor, your watchman. Anyone.Anytime .

Wishing you luck ,

Mitali 🙂

P.S – As i write this , a notification about my classmates changed profile pic crops up. At other times , i would have literally died from the after effects of hysterically laughing while banging my head on the wall. But today i am doing a _/_ ( namaste ) 😛 .

Smiles_bitch_santana
My reaction. 😉

I really wish i could share her picture with you , ‘cos unlike P she taught me two things –

  1.  Self Love and Self confidence are not related to the number of likes. 🙂

 

  1.  However guilty or angry you feel with yourself , NEVER do this with    you.  Never post a photo like that 😛 😛 😉
