intended to write one last night but couldnt.. saw Arundhati-a Telugu horror movie.. good one actually, nothing dhinchak like the normal ones.. the actress looked graceful in the saree, and equally bad in modern clothes (double role).. sonu sood (the ghost-cum-villain) was good too.. altho i thought the editing was only so-so.. but overall, a worth watch movie, even for a non-Telugu-ite..
also, the night before, when we went to meet gagan, didnt write much cuz i had no words to describe how it felt.. it was awesome! exactly like campus, back then-- sitting some place by the road, chatting, laughing (hysterically, in my case!) like no one's around (had to refrain from it later on, cuz ppl might've gotten scared, or worse, angry!), the never-ending PJs and theories (i'm Vandith's apprentice here.. he is God!), and gagan calling me "mote".. lolz! i guess she's the ONLY one in the world who calls me mote.. btw.. even tonight, i still dont have any words, these are just the incidents that i'm mentioning.. :-)
tomorrow, its the BITSAA Hyderabad Chapter meet.. hoping for it to be awesome! :)
btw.. what got me into writing this post is, Rage. u know, the animal inside of me (well, most ppl @ BITS are unaware of this fact.. plays to my advantage innit?! just FYI, if u see my ears really red, assume that i'm super-uber-mad.. cos i know for a fact that they get red, plus i even feel the heat in my ears!!!) what happened was (has happened earlier too.. but i lost my patience this time!), we were returning from work, in an auto rickshaw, a shared one.. the rickshaw walla takes 3 ppl at the back, and 2/3/4 ppl beside him (avg = 3, excluding him of course)... and whenever some female comes, he asks one of the passengers who're seated behind to come join him at the front.. what i fucking don't understand is.. where the fuck is all the "equality" that females keep talking about?! they go bonkers about sexism, that people are biased against the fairer sex etc etc... if u want equality, then be prepared for everything!! they want equality in education, in politics, in every bit of life as they can imagine, but what about the auto incident!!!
never have i seen a female tell the auto walla confidently, that No Bhaiyya, i'm prepared to seat beside u.. these girls roam about in expensive, even revealing jeans-tops sometimes, and arent prepared to sit in a clumsy place?! i mean, okay, i can understand that there are some people who are arseholes, who try to get physical with women, more so with the modern girls who like to leave so little for imagination.. but i strongly oppose Mrs. Shobhaa De's thoughts here.. she's one person, who says that ALL men, no one excluded are Pigs, who just want to jump on to women all the time, like a hunter on to the prey.. she, and her daughters faced situations it seems.. but, while reading an article of hers in The Indian Express (or The Week) some years ago, (it inevitably was against Men!), she mentioned about some incident-it goes as follows---
her daughters it seems went out, to a mall or something.. with friends of course.. and they had to face an incident, some men (as far as i remember, some daily wages workers, doing some repair work @ the mall) passed lewd comments or something, dont remember exactly.. and it seems they were drooling over the (poor!) girls.. and FYI, she clearly mentioned that the girls had gone out in "quite" modern clothes..
one more indicent--she said, some guy in a nearby building used to use his binoculars to get a "clearer" view of the girls, as in of their rooms..
now, just like we cant blame ALL Muslims for terrorism, we simply CANNOT assume that all men are pigs, who like to prey on the poor li'l women's souls! why cant Mrs. De digest this simple fact! and i fail to understand how the Mr. De lives with such idiotic, psychotic women in the house! i'd rather do something, drastic for that matter!!
this brings me back to the more day-to-day scenario.. these days, when there's women pilots in india, women bus-conductors, women auto drivers, women police, hell women who're practically running the show (i.e. Mrs. Sonia Gandhi, Mrs. Sheila Dixit, et al), why is there the need to take resort to the "traditional" i'm a butterfly, dont hurt me view as and when needed? where is all the equality gone now, huh?!!
the reason i'm writing this is, i was asked to move from the back seat, when there WAS one place for the lady concerned, but seems her husband was with her (some guy it was).. i told the auto walla, bhaiyya ek jagah hai, lady wahan baith jayegi.. again he says with frustration lady seat hai aage aa jao.. i mean.. bullshit! what'd've happened if the lady'd've sat beside me and the husband in the front? i for one wud surely not have eaten her up! plus, my complaint is, i cant FIT into the front part, with such less legspace... my head bumps into the roof for every little stone the auto crushes, and also my knees bump into the auto-part-which-i-cant-describe-in-words.. and it bloody HURTS! (not to mention, the smoke/dust worsens clothes faster when seated in the front!)
so now.. the conclusion i've drawn is...
wait for it... :P
"women themselves are the most sexist beings"
don't u agree? i mean, i respect women a lot, have respected women a lot since birth (leave aside a few who dont deserve respect!), but this is the fact.. they themselves are sexists, and i for one, hate (irrational) feminists more than anything.. its okay if one saves a female who's being tortured by her dumbass husband, or any such oppressions-physical of psychological.. but to demand equal jobs, to demand equal pay scales, to demand reservations, hell, to demand "fighting @ a war front, mano-a-mano", but yet, be so unequal at will.. awesome, isn't it? well done!!
btw.. what i really wanted to say to the husband in the auto was, itni sone jaisi biwi hai to ghar mein rakha kar.. but no, we HAVE to be decent at all times, even when there's all kinds of random people around! well.. yeah.. THAT my dears, is life!
now u tell me.. who's sexist here?! me, or the 10s of different women i've travelled with, who want all equal rights, but wont sit in front!
maybe its just a trivial non-significant issue, but as they say, charity begins at home...
P.S.-- just remembered.. there's also a ladies' reservation in the bus.. so, when there's a seat vacant, some men obviously grab the opportunity and occupy the reserved seats.. now when a female boards the bus, she's like.. "whats the sonofabitch doing in a ladies' seat"?!! it CLEARLY says on their facial expressions, trust me.. and yet, there's the odd female who's seated somewhere at the back, NOT ON A LADIES' RESERVED SEAT.. who's to tell her to get the hell off the seat! if someone says so.. the expression goes "where does this guy come from? doesn't he have the slightest decency/courtesy! for God's sakes, i'm a woman, in a bus full of males (read pigs) all around!"... trust me!
all i'd like to say to all Feminists (in particular, illogical ones and Mrs. De in particular) to shove it up theirs! and SHUT THE FUCK UP! :-/
btw,, yesterday just happened to be my father's birthday, and one of the more memorable ones lately.. apart from the aforementioned fact, some good news (is it newses?!! lolz!) of the day--
well.. its confidential.. so chuck.. haven't asked the concerned people whether to publicize it just yet!! (God forbid should they sue me, i'll lose all my (hopeful) future earnings!)
some funny incidents--
for dinner, me and vandith decided to go out.. went to a place, "Veg Buffet @ Rs. 75/-" it turned out to be real ordinary, not worth 25 bucks if u ask me.. then checked some local dhaba, te ambience was real bad there.. then went to a hotel "veg thali @ Rs. 50/-" which was only for lunch they said.. still, we decided to try the place out (had to avoid the Pizza Hut and Domino's etc, too much spending >.< ).. so we have a table, but surprisingly there's NO one but 3-4 waiters there.. so we decided, since the place is not so well to do, maybe we shouldn't try it.. plus, who knows when they'd've bought the vegetables etc with so less customers! so we were in a fix-whether to leave directly, after having gulped down a glass of water each, or just give one waiter a 10 rupee note and leave, or order something light and leave.. we decided to order Aalu paranthas.. two.. got em packed, and 40 bucks it was! left much to the astonishment of the waiters! lolz.. then, there was a place we went past, kinda not so good, but earlier we'd pondered going inside.. the second time.. when we were passing by, i say to vandith "vandith, jab din mein ek baar kat chuka hota hai na... tab risk nahi lete.. we gotta play safe" thus we went to a hotel, had a magnificent dinner, returned home.. and after a while, tasted the packed parantha.. it was REAL bad man.. maaaaan... waise Hyderabad mein aa kar itni baar kat chuka hai.. this was one of the least in its extent!!
anyways.. adios.. gotta sleep..
