Uncle: What's on your mind?
Uncle: That's alright. Let it out. You can whine .
Me: He's not the right guy for her.
Uncle: How do you know?
Me: We share the same blood. Who knows her better? It's a mismatch. She'll regret later.
Uncle: Don't assume.
Me: My gut feeling....
Uncle: Hmm stop feeling. Everything will be okay.
Me: Trust me. He's not the right guy for her.
Uncle: How do you know, I asked?
Uncle: Hmm because?
Me: I've spoken to him a couple of times.
Uncle: And you jumped to the conclusion that he's not the right one for her?
Uncle: Then? What is it?
Me: You don't even have the patience to listen to me.
Uncle: Look. Whatever be it....
Me: I was thinking.....
Uncle: Started thinking early in the morning?
Me: I was thinking....
Me: I should be going on a pilgrimage again. Like I went last time.
Uncle: Last time you drove me crazy by going alone. I was worried till you returned home. Please drop the idea.
Me: Even this time I will return safe. God will protect me.
Uncle: My ass! Don't aggravate me now. If I had not put you in the right train and asked my nephew to pick you up from the railway station and take care of your accommodation there, you would never return home safe.
Me: You mean I would have got lost if you hadn't helped.
Me: Don't treat me like a kid. I don't lik...
Uncle: In my younger days........
Me: I don't really want to know what happened in your younger days. Pause.. pause.. pause.
Uncle: Listen to me.
Me: Want me to go on strike again? I don't wish to violate the terms of our ceasefire agreement.
Uncle: Okay. I won't tell you what happened then?
Me: I heard you had quite a lot of girl friends in your younger days. True?
Uncle: Did I hear you say you're not interested in knowing what happened in my younger days?
Uncle: You seem to be really happy today. That's wonderful. It's going to rain!
Me: That's because.. I managed to escape from trouble, for once.
Uncle: You invite trouble always. Must never trouble trouble until trouble ...
Friend: Our plight is pathetic, Ann. We are helpless. I feel sorry for you. This is not what you deserve.
Me: You don't deserve this as well.
Friend: Forget about me. I don't have the eligibility to teach. I just hold a degree and nothing more.
Me: But you're communication skills are definitely far better than most others. So you don't have to worry about not being eligible. People can buy certificates nowadays. Not a great deal. You have the skill. That's what matters. Be glad!
Friend: You have the ability and eligibility. You definitely don't deserve to be here. Why don't you move abroad? There's no future for people like you here. I feel very sorry for you.
Me: Thanks for the concern....
Me: Good morning.
Uncle: Good morning. You're up this early? Maybe because you went to bed early.
Me: I think so.
Uncle: I repeat what I said last evening. You should learn to control your temper. You'll step into deep shit if you use such words at workplace. Just ignore those who trouble you.
Me: In that case I have to ignore almost everyone. I only like my students.
Uncle: Please do that. You just do your work. Just think that others don't exist to you.
Me: How will I coordinate activities if I think nobody exists to me?
Uncle: Speak when required. I'm not asking you to keep your mouth shut throughout the day.
Me: What do you think I do? I speak only ...
Uncle: Everything okay?
Me: Looks like it.
Uncle: I fear your .imagination fever.
Me: Lol. Why?
Uncle: All of a sudden you'll start imagining things and drive me crazy.
Me: Lol. I won't be imagining anything for the next few days. Not to worry.
Uncle: Never went to the graveyard to pray for your dad's soul?
Me: You know it. If I do that, you'll have to face the music. Are you ready?
Uncle: Oh please. You better not go. After you return from the graveyard, you'll start narrating stories of death and resurrection .
Me: Lol. I'll go to church in the evening.
Uncle: That will be good.
Me: Do you think all the dead will resurrect some day and God will bring them to justice?
Uncle: Who ...
Uncle: Are you fine?
Me: If I say "I'm not", can you do anything about it?
Uncle: There's no cure to your sickness. You suffer from imagination.
Me: That's what you think.
Uncle: So you're not going back to college?
Uncle: You think someone will harm you if you go back? Nobody will dare to do anything to you as long as I'm alive.
Me: I know it. I'm not talking about physical harm.
Uncle: You started your shit talk again.
Me: Maybe it will all make sense someday when you see me in the mental hospital. I'm not talking shit.
Uncle: I never knew you're such a coward. I thought you were brave.
Me: Even I thought I were brave. That's why I kept fighting battles I knew I couldn't...
There's a thin line between getting opportunity of having sex (on will) and slut shaming.
Then we talk about modesty.
Aahh! How Ironic.🌼🌈
Uncle: Are you going to eat or not? Don't brood. Your drama will not work with me.
Me: You're heartless!
Me: No. I won't eat.
Uncle: Then go home and weep. I am not going to wipe your tears anyway.
Me: I hate you.
Me: Don't talk to me.
Uncle: Okay .
Me: * walking out slowly*
Three hours later....
Uncle: I called up to ask if you've eaten something or you want me to bring you food?
Me: I don't want.
Uncle: Are you sure?
Uncle: Okay. Good for me.
Me: I'm going out.
Me: I won't tell you where I'm going.
Uncle: I don't wish to know. Go wherever you want to.
Me: I said.. I'm going out.
Uncle: I'm not deaf. I heard. Please go.
I crave intimacy but I get confused and uncomfortable when I’m shown even slightest bit of attention or affection,
Little Zaid: You wanted to be a teacher? Was that your wish when you were a kid?
Me: No. I never wanted to be a teacher.
Little Zaid: Then why did you become one?
Me: I don't know. I think I was made to grow fond of teaching because my professors wished I become a teacher. They felt I was cut out for teaching.
Little Zaid: Oh that's so sad! Then what did you wish to become?
Me: I don't know that either. I was raised in poverty. All I wished was to grow up as fast as possible so that I earn some money and help my dad. Unfortunately he didn't live to see me bag medals and ranks or earn.
Little Zaid: No. You didn't understand my question. I want to become a mechanical engineer. I'm interes...
#make a difference
I tend to spend very little time with you,
There are somethings only you can help me do.
You have supported me in every endeavour,
You are my superhero, honest, powerful and clever.
Your love is not clearly visible, but I know its immense,
You provided me with everything, even when situations were tense.
You are my silent pillar of strength,
With you by my side, my happiness has no length.
You have always welcomed me with open arms,
Throughout my life, laden me with priceless charms.
Even though I care alot, but I've never really told you,
I get mad at you sometimes, but those situations are very few.
In the worst situations, you've silently held my hand and wa...
Sometimes we come into a person’s life not to make them love us but to let them feel that they’re so much worth loving for,
This Saturday it will be "Make a Difference' day. We dare you to make the difference for someone by writing them a letter. This can also be an open letter to everyone.
Tag your letter 'makeadifference'.
Make your mark!
It is hard to differentiate self respect from ego and harder to practise self-respect without ego.
I am sorry , It was done by mistake. -
- Was the mistake done intentionally?
(Say yes , the heart said
Heart repeated - say yes
Come on .. say yes )
" Once again Ego won"
Manuel: Did you give it a thought?
Manuel: Forgotten or pretending to have forgotten?
Me: I suffer from dementia.
Manuel: Be serious.
Me: Hmm hmm
Manuel: You're a hard nut to crack.
Me: Not really.
Manuel: So what have you decided?
Manuel: Nothing meaning.
Me: Meaning.. I don't want to think of tomorrow. I live for the day.
Manuel: As long as your uncle is there for you, you need not think of tomorrow. What if....
Me: I'm not a kid. I can live without him.
Manuel: There's no use of talking to you. You have an answer for every question.
Manuel: Eat well and go to bed. And remember, there are good people in this world. Don't be so distrustful.
Friend: How's that you're so cool all the time? Other than workplace issues, you don't complain about anything else. How?
Me: I complain of workplace issues. That's enough I guess. Do you have the patience to listen to many more issues?
Friend: I have the patience to listen. You know it.
Me: Do you have the etiquette to listen and keep it to yourself. Someday we might not remain friends. What if you spill the beans?
Friend: What do you mean? You don't trust me?
Me: Sorry. I don't trust anyone.
Friend: Then why do you talk to me?
Me: I find you far better than most others.
Friend: I didn't expect this of you. You're so mean. Don't talk to me.
Me: Maybe I am. How about you? Are you not...
Manuel: Hi. Your insta story shows you have gone out today. That's good! May I ask, where did you go?
Me: Does it concern you? Don't be so inquisitive.
Manuel: Hey. I'm just asking.
Me: Hmm I went to the adoration centre to pray for all the assholes.. sorry good souls and bad souls.
Manuel: Your tongue has no control. God alone knows how your husband will tolerate you after you're married.
Me: That's his problem. Not yours.
Manuel: What are you going to have for dinner?
Me: I'm going to have chicken sausages and bread.
Manuel: Shall I join you?
Me: No. I've only got little. Sufficient for just ONE. So I cannot share with you.
Manuel: Don't go out when it's raining. You'll fall sic...
Uncle: I've asked my maid to cook something for you in my absence. You may not like what she cooks. You'll have to manage till I return. Have I forgotten to make any other arrangement? Hmm what else..
Me: Hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm
Uncle: Oh yeah I have to get your two wheeler serviced before I go. You won't be able to get it done.
Me: Hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm
Uncle: What is this hmm hmm hmm hmm?
Me: It means.. Don't treat me like a kid.. you donkey!
Uncle: I'll give you one slap if you talk that way. I'm trying to make all arrangements so that you don't have to face any problem when I'm abroad and you're acting stupid.
Me: You are not confident that I can look after myself. That's what I don't ...
