'Food Fighters'

No, I’m not gonna ramble about the poverty and disaster striken people fighting over food.

It’s not about the children in village schools who have to fight for their mid day meals.

It’s not about the ngos fighting for providing food to the incapacitated or the others that are fighting against genetic modification of food items!

and I'm not gonna brood that mess mein khaana fight hai!

I suddenly realize that food has always been a matter of fights!

Somehow, our English teacher missed a preposition which can be placed between fight and food!

I know you can’t guess it. It’s so innovative after all!

Fight ‘with’ food !

How about I splash your face with a katori of dal and you revert back with twice the quantity of Rajma and in the process we intentionally attack some uninitiated bystanders.. who, wallowing in this new found amusement.. escalate it to a full fledged food fight, much as we originally desired!

Doesn’t that sound like great fun? I can already imagine the picture.. loads of rice, rajma, and whatever be the menu, splattered all over the mess and all over people as well.

Done.. tonight at dinner table.

But _______________________

Don’t you remind me of the ‘sanskruti’ that we should respect food and all that!

And the stories of the children dying of hunger in some sick village in UP? It’s all crap!

Come on yaar.. how can you be such a spoilsport?

Ok the first person narrative ends here!

Sould I expect a better response while trying to deter the protagonists of this war from their devious ideas of fun?

Should we enact POTA in the hostel?

In times as these.. is this thought criminal enough?

Should I give the deterrence a thought?

Can I?

I don’t know! I don’t know anything. Am not sure if it’s gonna amuse me. I don’t think I’d like to be an eyewitness either!

Comfortably numb ?

Not yet :-(

Main Nahin Bhool Sakta.......

sharing someone's thoughts! I seem to be having a dearth of my own these days!

"main nahi bhool sakta un baccho ki baate jo bheek maang
rahe the station par or vo jo balloons bech raha tha, vo bacche jo
trains main apni shirts khol kar safai karte hai, jo polythines
uthate hai, vo kumhar jo ab bina rojgaar ke hai vo masoom lekin
samajhdaar or Layak bacche, vo sookeh aasu liye kumhar, vo ghar ki neev
khodne vale majdoor. soch kar dil ko dukh hota hai ki kyo ye
difference hai ek 9 saal ka ladka jo poore ghar ko sambhal raha hai
or ek 21 saal ka ladka jo ye soch raha hai ki papa paisa nahi denge
to kaam kaise chalega, us ke mobile ka bill kaun bharega, us ki party
ke liye paisa kaha se aayega."


Comfortably Numb??

New age mantras

Was listening to radio after ages..

The RJ announced in between two songs..

'To agar aapne ghar se bhaag ke shaadi ki hai, ya phir chori chhupe shaadi ki hai.. to just give me a call and I will give you a gift hamper'

and they say zamaana mohabbat ka dushman hai!!

Cheers! to Mohabbat and to this zamaana!

Some parents might like to sue this VJ for teaching their all so innocent sons and daughters this perverted New Age Mantra!!
