Me : Please I'm begging you please don't take me with you, I'm just a 22 years kid, I haven't seen the world yet, pleaseeee.

Yumraj : What are you talking about? You have lived for 22 long years, in a house equipped with every luxury and fun; and you haven't seen the world??? What a joke? You are the number one prank master in school college as well as at home. You are the one who can easily get his hands off from the task you are not interested in, no matter after that how much more your mother have to work to finish your task.

Me : Umm..Umm..

Yumraj : I'm not over yet, so shut your mouth. Apart from all this, you are living a double life on facebook also.

Me : Double life???

Yumraj : Yes double life. Are you the same person that you have created on facebook?

Me : Umm..Umm...

Yumraj : Don't Umm...You say you are a friendly person and talk to everyone who is online whether you know them or not, but do you ever call your old friends, and ask how they are doing? You say you are caring and care hell a-lot when a girl posts a sad status, but did you ever call your old granny to ask how she is? You say you are helpful and help your friends to find a hot girl with even hotter profile picture but did you ever ask your mom and dad, do they need any help or not?

Me : Hmm...I never thought of it in this way.

Yumraj : (With a soft tone this time) Dear facebook is a medium through which you can stay in contact with all the people you care and love, this is not a part of your life which you tends to live everyday. The real world is out here, where we meet people, go out with them, talk to them face to face, drink coffee together.

Me : Hmm..I think I have lost the chance to live an actual life with my real friends. Can I make a last wish of my life sir before you take me with you?

Yumraj : Sure kid.

Me : (with my hands folded and eyes closed) O God, please make everyone realize the fact that I came to know today, please let them live an actual life.

Yumraj : (With a smile on his face) Amen.

Mom : Rishabh get up beta, its already 9 AM. Its sunday, what do you want to eat?

Me : Phew..That was a dream. Mom I'm coming, I will have egg sandwich, Ooh wait mom, we will make it together, don't start without me.

Be kind to others, it will pay off...

Might be 65 or 70, she was carrying no bag and was wrapped in a ‘dhooti’. She already had asked for the metro token from two others standing ahead of me in the queue. I had no idea why they refused. But when she approached me, and said she needed a token for tilaknagar (where she lives), I found no reason to say NO. ‘She is not asking for money, she wants to go home and it’s getting late’, I thoughtWhen it was my turn, I first asked for her token. I gave it to her and was about to turn back, when she put her hand over my head. “Bhagwaan kare tumhe kabhi kisi ki jarurat na pade. (May you never have to ask for help)” Her words and relief in voice almost brought tears in my eyes. I was so captivated in the moment that I forgot about the trailing queue. Then a voice disturbed my inner peace and ordered me to either to buy my ticket or move out of line. Later inside metro, her words struck me. ‘May you never have to ask for help’. Was this a blessing or her pain? Is this even possible? I…

Ever since I woke up, I have been judged...

Ever since I woke up, I have been judged...

For the wake up timing, for the mumbled whining...
For the pimple on nose, for buying my own rose...
For taking shower late, for smiling at person on gate...
For the compliment I received, for the cleavage that peeped...

For the bonus I bagged, for the joke I cracked...
For partying with friends, for wearing the trends...
For being good in shape, for sexy saari I drape...
For saying no to liquor, for leaving party quicker...

For driving my car, for the one damn dent so far...
For balanced equation, for sweet sophistication...
For burping after meal, for 5 inch heel...
For making first move, for saying I disapprove...

For travelling in night, for loving twilight...
For watching game of throne, for paying my loan...
For jeans and short skirt, for reciprocating the flirt...
Phew...NO it's not gonna stop...

Ever since I woke up, I have been judged...

But neither you know me, nor do I thee...
You don't know my present or my history...

Protest Against Unclean Stubble #10

After having been written 9 posts uninterrupted on the same topic, I could not resist myself noticing faces. When I look at people, the only question which pops up in my brain is, 'Why or why not you keep stubble?'. So far I had interrogated almost everyone. From grandfathers to grandsons and form my paper-man to night duty watchman.

Last morning when I woke up at the doorbell. I took the vessel, rubbed my eyes and opened the door for my dudhwala bhaiya (milkman). As I saw his face, my eyes sparkled and I was all set to ask the same question for may be 68th time. But I hold my horses and asked something new.

"Bhaiya Ji, from how many days, you didn't shower?"

"Didi Ji I shower everyday."

"But you don't look like.I'm sure bhabhi ji is not happy with you these days?"

"How do you know Didi Ji? Are you a fortune teller? Can you tell me anything else?"

"Yes I can. You will face itching problem on your face in the coming days…
