We are so strangely Wired !

We forget that losing is just as much a part of life. Perhaps not the most fun part of life, but part of it nonetheless. We forget that we have all seen the bumper sticker that reads “Shit Happens” and laughed thinking “well ain’t that the truth”. EVERYONE fails at something, at some time. Quite aware of the feelings & pains of disappointment, we never arm ourselves with tissues and bandages. What’s it inside in all of us that makes us think “Yes, I can do this” even in the most ridiculous situations. Where do this feeling of hope stays !

We are so strange !

We forget the simplest things. We forget that the easiest way to un-complicate life is to un-complicate wants. As long as we expect the least out of everyone and the most out of ourself, things work out smoothly. We don’t have to hold anyone else accountable then. It’s THAT simple.So, what makes us burden others with our own expectations? What makes us unload our wants on someone else? What makes us believe that things that others think we don’t deserve from them will fall in our laps?

Oh Yes! We are oh so strange.

The Sacred Funda of PJs

Disclaimer – A lot of PJs mentioned in this post do not belong to me but have been shamelessly plagiarized without giving credits so that people can appreciate the “Science” behind PJs through the usual (and probably seen) examples. See I am THAT amazing a teacher. I think I may cry over this. WAIT, what !!! Don’t be a sissy, of course I’m not gonna cry. <note to self> Focus Focus

All right, so I am gonna be really really REALLY modest here and confess that I crack really cool PJs, at least sometimes. In my school years and 1st year of college, people started trying to make me realize that its not really that cool to be the “PJ guy”. One of the principal reason being the disgust with which people look at you when they realize what a fool they made out of themselves (be a man and admit it that’s the exact effect of a cool PJ – if you are a girl and reading this post please don’t be a man, we already have approx 900 girls per 1000 men in India and sex change operations cost a lot. Not that I would know how much they cost. Hey, stop making that judgmental face). <note to self again> Focus Focus

As a very wise man have said once – “You cannot really hide talent or keep it to yourself” (I’m not sure who said that but I’m pretty sure that this wise man writes this blog). Anyway, it’s been some time now since I realized that I should not keep my PJs to myself. Who knows some time later this can be my thing, like you know “hey, know that guy. He cracks disgusting PJs”  or “hey know that guy, his PJs can make you wanna kill yourself, or him” or “hey know that guy, he is still alive because last time I checked, it was still illegal to kill people”. I mean you get the point right ? you know – people (*sigh*).

So, coming back I always thought that someday I would share my “deadly” PJ skills with one and all. Its not gonna be a single post (may be) because I might add a few stuff as they come to my mind. And besides, I also have been trying to hone my skills, so who knows when later I come with some other techniques, I would share with you all.

For now, hold your breath, coz here we go –

1. Words have meaning “in and out of context” – Here’s a good example to prove it. (You can release your breath, Jeez !!)

A sardarji went to a STD/ISD shop and slapped the operator twice.
Guess why ?
Because there it was written “Number dial karne se pehele do lagae”

Now, what does the above example tells you ? Words can have “deadly” meaning if you take them out of context. Not very surprisingly, English language have loads of them.

In an IPL party Dhoni passes a beer to Raina who gives it to Sehwag to open it. Why? coz Sehwag is an Opener

2. This happens to be my favorite way of making PJs. Take any word and beat the living crap out of it. This is not easy (showing off here) and need widespread knowledge of a lot of names/fields. Also, you must be willing to cross the barriers of language and to be honest, the barriers of prevalent sanity.

Here’s lots of  examples –

What do you call a lioness sitting on a rock ? – SherOn Stone

Who is the leader of Ducks ?  – Frog .. becoz he is the Mainduck

What is the color of frequency? – Purple. Confused ? Here’s the explanation – Unit of frequency – Hertz. You can write it as – 1/sec i.e. per second. In Hindi, second is also called ‘pal’
therefore: Perpal

What does a cat do if she finds a Bournvita ? – She buries it. Becoz the name is “Cat-Buries” (Cadbury’s) Bournvita

On Visiting which part of India you expect your mouth to freeze Completely ? – Its Jammu (Jam-Mu)

Okay, I am getting senti here. Lets continue.

3. Song Based PJs – The most random class of PJs. You are listening to a song and suddenly some words remind you of something else entirely. Here, let me explain –

Kangna Ranawat’s laugh is different from Amitabh Bacchan. Why ? –  Coz the song from the movie Gangster says, “तेरी हँसी तेरी अदा , Auro से है बिलकुल जुदा” . Auro = Amitabh Bacchan (from Paa).

See, told ya – Random !!!! A few more examples that are mostly a blend of method 2 and 3.

What song does a kid sings when he enters Class 1 ? – K.G kiya re … K.G kiya re !

A boy was sad coz a girl rejected his proposal. So he goes in a park to play and take his mind off things. He starts with the See-Saw but it breaks. Guess the song he starts singing ? – “See-Saw हो या दिल हो, टूट जाता है”

As I said – Random !!!

4. CID PJs – Enough Said

P.S. – This post was in my draft for a week now. Sometime you wonder what working on a Saturday can do to you. And besides, I’m lazy 🙂

P.P.S. – I tried a new style of writing a post which is more of a conversation style post. Hope y’all like it.

P.P.P.S. – In spite of being an irregular blogger, I got over 1,200 hits. Seriously, people have lots of free time now-a-days 😛

P.P.P.P.S – You can celebrate. I will write a follow-up post for sure on this topic 😀

Till Next Post 🙂

Modern Day Story of Rabbit & Tortoise

Tortoise and Rabbit were good friends and used to work together every day. One of the days, the topic of the famous race between their ancestors came up. A discussion ensued and they argued whether “Slow and steady win the race” is still relevant. The rabbit was far too proud to assume that any tortoise can defeat him. The fight grew more and more till they decided that the only way to settle it is a race between them. It was also decided to invite as many audiences as possible to witness the race.

The race started on a circular race track. It was decided that there will be 5 laps. The audience preferred to sit near the finish point. The race started and as expected, the rabbit took a substantial lead of more than a lap at the beginning itself. He thought he should take a nap as he could defeat the tortoise whenever he wants to. He could not find any green grass so he started thinking. Just then he saw the tortoise walking slowly but steadily. An idea came to him and he climbed on top of the tortoise’s hard back. The tortoise, a diligent fellow, wasn’t even bothered with the additional weight, for he was already used to carrying so much load. At the last lap near the finish point, the audiences were cheering loudly. This broke the rabbit’s nap and he climbed down and finished the race way ahead of the tortoise.

After the award ceremony, he was asked by another rabbit, how he managed to do what his generations were never able to do. He replied as a matter of factly “I rode on someone else’s back”.

P.S. – Blog updated after a long time. I blame Twitter. Micro-blogging have spoiled my mind against Macro-Blogging 😀

P.P.S. – The credit to the plot of this story goes to a newspaper article pointing that in today’s world a rabbit win all the races.

Till Next Post 🙂
