Okay I am feeling much better......and the 'he' in the previous post was NOT my boyfriend. To make things clear lemme add that I do not have a bf, have never had one and in all probablility shall never have one also!
Some things have been sorted out in the short span of time that ensued since I wrote the previous posts....
Hence and therefore this would have been an ideal time to remove the last two posts but..well..i guess I shall let them be and instead put up something non depressed ...
(3 posts in a day!!!!!!phew!!)
Well , for starters..my Mum caught my maid who has been with us for about 6 yrs now, stealing Rs 200.It was a rude shock for both me and Mum..
We treated her like family and she behaved like a servant..Sometime back she cried on my shoulder coz she had just discoverd that her daughter was having a rolicking affair with a cousin brother, and I know how heart broken I was to see her thus reduced to nuthing but loads of tears....
It sounds filmy to say this, but had she asked me for the money I would have given it to her...
Of late utensils had been vanishing, Mum's gold ring disappeared some time back and so on and so forth....
Mum used to say that it could be Meena's doing but I used to put my feet down.
And today I gaped foolishly as Mum confronted Meena.
Its silly..maybe servants are supposed to steal...maybe...
I now realise that I had put too much faith in her( as I know I put in most people I know)
So, thats a lesson learnt.
Apart from that, I had my Computer Graphics end sem today.It was a bit nightmarish..but then I guess sab chalta hai!
Now there is this book store nearby that is simply OSSUUUMMMM! But they have , I think banned me.I have read 5 different books sitting there and sadly I think they have gotten this now!
When I went there first, some seedy looking guy, pretending to be the biggest bibiliophile on this planet would come to me, and speak intelligently about the 'latest' book by Agatha Christie.
I would refuse to pretend as if I were interested and take out my ( or rather 'their' ) copy of Adrian Mole , turn to the page I had last left the book at and start reading...
The Intellectual Book Lover would hover around me, very suspicious.
Intermittently, he would come to me with the 'latest' book by Charles Dickens..but mostly he stared at me from a distance.
This continued for some time. When I had visited that place very very regularly for almost a week, continuously, and still not bought anything, Intellectual Book Lover thought it was time to do something.
So, he came to me, one fine day, with a intellectual'hey!!! look I just found the 'latest' book by Tulsi Das ' smile and said," Ma'am, you come each day, but...errr... you do not buy anything...errr...err....we are a book shop , Ma'am"
And I said ":O:O a buk shop???!!!!"
" yess, Ma'am"
"oh!! I am sorry!!!!" , I said and walked out.
And that was the last I went there.
Most of the time I have no money..i genuinely do not have money.I am therefore a mini bhikhari more often than not . ( 'mini' coz I am tiny! )There are two reasons for that---
1. I am too lazy to see if my wallet is well stocked or no. Infact most of the time when I have to return from college I end up borrowing money from people for the bus ride home.
The ticket costs me a grand total of Rs 3. And more often than not, I do not have that much money!
Thats so totally bhikharish! wow!!
So, I ask for money.
( Again , so totally bhikharish! double wow!)
Sometime back, I borrowed a grand total of Re. 1 from a friend while crossing the road.
I said," mujhe pls ek rupaya deh doh".
gosh! that sounds so much like a bhikharan!!!
allah ke naam parr ek rupaya deh doh babujee, tohar jodi bani rahe
jeez.....I can start a Bhikari Training Centre or what?
2. I do not have money! Simple.
My Mum says it is good to travel by bus. It increases resistance to bacteria.
Sometime back I had the pleasure of travelling with a bhikhari family.
There was Mr. Bhikari, unki Mishes, and 3 baby Bhikhariz.They were on their way to the Railway Station to beg.
The baby Bhikhari, feeling for my hungry looking eyes, kindly offered me one Eclairs.
No, don't even ask me that. I promise I refused. Tumhari kasam!
So for mini bhikhariz like me, book piracy is the greatest thing that has happened other than friends who do not mind lending me Re. 1.
Pirated books are terribly grand !!
Well...book piracy rocks!!! And for all those'i-am-so-dead-against-book-piracy' people here...
I am currently reading a totally pirated , cud not be more pirated version of Billy Boy's autobiography
Am also reading short stories by O.Henry and it's an awesome collection! Fantastic.10/10.
Aaah...full marks by a mini bhikhari.....wow! lucky Mishterr Henry!
