Indian Relative(s)…

Relatives!

In India if you ask anyone what these relatives are, you will get some grim faces in front of your eyes. Well all over the world there are relatives. Whether that is in US or UK or other part of the World. But those relatives will not be so intimidating or irritating as compared to Indian counterparts. Well you will ask me why Indian relatives are so? I mean you will be thinking why I am calling Indian relatives so irritating? But don’t worry, I am explaining the issue a bit.

 

In US and UK relatives (so called) because in US, UK and Other World excluding Asian countries there are no relatives as such. Because relatives in rest of the world they don’t poke their noses in your personal matters. But that is not so with Indian Relatives. Indian relatives will try as much to poke their noses in your matters as they can. And will make your life miserable. Now consider following examples and you will get a clear idea of what I am saying.

 

Consider a guy who has got selected in a MNC after he passed his MBA degree. But the order for joining is not coming since some months now, almost 4 months. Considering the market situation he knows that there are no finance profiles available and there are other factors also for not going for some other job for the time being. The guy is well versed with the conditions and that’s why he is sitting idle since 3 months. Now 3 months of idleness is not much if you ask me. But these relatives will irritate you by asking you when is the joining (almost) daily.

                                       Now the other part of asking such questions is giving you some dose about what to do and what not to do. But that’s the thing I am talking about. They will not just make you drink their doses but will irritate you in some other ways too. They will at first ask you to join some other job for time being. Now if you go for the job and the offer you had already gets out of your hand, they will say,“why the hell did you leave the job which was so better than this job?”. On the other hand if you don’t go for the job they will say,“why the hell are you not trying for something else? For how much time you are going to sit idle?” as if the guy’s age gonna bar.

 

This relative is so shitty business in India. That’s why I follow a simple rule by Swami Vivekananda that “If you know by your inner mind and being true to your own that what you are doing is right and will bring some good to you, then hell with what others think about your doings. You follow your own inner voice.” The benefit of following your own inner voice is that you alone are responsible for what consequences you face. And nobody can say anything or you can not blame anybody else. And a drawback in following other’s advice is, if you loose something you can’t blame those people for they will say who asked you to follow our advice. So you better listen to your own inner voices.

 

Relatives are called relatives because their opinions are “relative” to the situations and generally exactly opposite to what you do or think. And I guess all people in India will agree to what I am saying.

Judas Insects…

One of the most Judas insects is a Housefly. Really, I have experienced their betraying nature very closely.

 

We always provide them, the houseflies; with a beautiful playing ground by dumping kitchen waste just in front of the gate or somewhere in the corner of a compound wall. Moreover we keep the manholes open, nullahs uncovered and sewage lines flowing like rivers, just for the sake of these insects. There are various other avenues too where these insects can play but still they poke their nose and legs in our food. We have been so friendly with them but to no use.

 

Well mosquitoes at least get “Moksha” by getting themselves killed. Thus they pay the price for their wrong doings. Mosquitoes try to escape but their slow pace as compared to human hands make them fall for death God. But this is not the case with houseflies. They almost every time defy the human speed and capacities. Just try to give them “Moksha”, try to make them free and they escape away from it. Such a blasphemous nature is really not pardonable. But that’s not it, they (houseflies) will time and again irritate you by sitting on your face or body part and food. I guess they want to prove to humans that they can eat your food, but you can not.

 

We do various better things for them, but they won’ restrain from annoying us and making us sick with some disease. So I insist all the humans, specially those who are under the increasing influence of houseflies; that don’t prepare any playground for them. Don’t keep the nullahs, manholes and sewage open. Use any good phenyl or disinfectant and get your house cleaned. We have been friendly with these insects for enough time now, its time to rebel against them and be Judas to them only.
