Dear three ladies in the office – Everyone has cough..its in the air..Mumbai is cold and I sit right under the AC duct..which means I freeze for 8.5 hours a day…so if I run to the washroom which is a mile away from my desk, coughing , holding a tissue in my hand covering my mouth, it doesnt mean I have ‘good news’ to share..so next time ask me if I have cold before you wink at me and ask me ‘kuch good news hai kya’ okie?
Dear lady who is pregnant and doesnt want anyone to know – Seriously, I am being honest to you saying that ‘you walk pregnant‘ your tummy is not showing now as its only 3 months, but eventually it will…why do you think people wont understand..so whats the point of getting angry at the other lady who told the entire office about your pregnancy…I agree she was wrong, I would be bugged too, but now why do you want to break your head on it…you are pregnant babes, celebrate instead of sulking..the kid inside you will be happier eh?
Dear bus driver of the BEST bus #xyz – you are awesome boss! you actually WAIT for R to get off the bus on her own and dont crib about waiting too long…you encourage her to take one step at a time and say ‘acha kiya acha kiya’ AND wave good bye to her…I think you are definitely a child’s indulgent grandfather 🙂
Dear Man at the bus stop, smoking is bad for your health and please dont try and kill my daughter and me with it as well….we have ‘miles to go before we sleep and miles to go before we sleep’
Dear R, crying AFTER you made a mistake that too AFTER I scold you is really not the solution darling..because at the end of the day, I just get more bugged and scold you more and then you cry even more..whats the point…if you make a mistake, say sorry okie?
Dear Cake in the shop, no, no matter how seductively you look at me, I am not going to buy you and gain calories….and no matter how much you tempt my daughter with your brown smooth covering with a bright white design topped with cherry, I am not buying you for her as well…you are becoming a bad habit Gah!
Dear RM, I know you are bugged at that uncle for printing your name on the card and more so as Smt RD….its bugging and irritating as if you dont have an identity of your own…but remember that love is the bottom line…he loves you equally, but is just following the norm which he has grown up with…no use feeling bad about such things..it just shows you over react to things which dont need a second thought!
