Soak No More??

No, soak no more…

in despair, oh young ladies of India,  because we have now real heros like Saina Nehwal who tell us that winning in Olympics despite of being a young ‘woman’ in India is indeed possible

in guilt, oh mothers of India, because we have Mary Kom to tell us, that its is possible to be mother of twins, and yet win a medal in the Olympics

in mundane work, oh enthused entrepreneurs of India, because now we have many role models who inspire us that its possible to start off on your own despite the initial struggles and yet be successful in life

in happiness, oh rude people against female infanticide, because India may be slowly fighting back despite of it being in small pockets and may be in small numbers, but we all live in hope that we will fight that across

in gratitude, oh people of India supporting Anna Hazare, because like everything in India, the attempt to get the Govt to act seemed to have failed 😦

in expectations, oh people of Mumbai, because the Metro is never going to get ready by September 2012

in depression, oh RM, because obviously, this too shall pass 🙂

in admiration, oh you people who admire the Ram Sena, because we will re-start the Pink Chaddi campaign, if you continue to trouble us like this

in excitement, oh foolish canine, because that model owner of yours in our building is never going to take you out by herself 😦 Whats the point of barking in excitement when you see her, she doesnt seem to notice you too much 😦

in evil, oh horrid Voldemort, because we have a Harry Potter, no make it, we have a Hermoine Granger to conquer your Horcruxes

in love, oh girl from a different community, because despite of what RM writes about people getting awakened against female infanticide, etc etc, there will be 100s who will try to scare you from the relationship 😦 Why am I so negative about it…

in greediness, oh consumer in India, because for every 10 things you waste, imagine the 100 families you could help

in technology, oh RD, because RM will eventually manage to make you feel that you married a technologically challenged person

in goodness, oh Kadipatta plant, because you dont seem to be surviving the ministering of RM

in greenery, oh marshlands of Bombay, because the builders of Bombay seem to be getting and destroying you by hook or by crook 😦

in heat, oh land, because its just going to get worse with the global warming

in logic, oh teachers who refuse to believe in the rich imagination of children, because whatever you do, the kids are going to imagine beyond your adult imagination, and many times, such imagination is the key to new success

in philosophy, oh RM, because at the end of the day, we all have to live in reality

in religiousness, oh mami from the other land, because whatever you say, my religion is what I want to practice, dont expect me to follow yours

in dirtiness, oh clothes of R, because Surf Excel promises that daag aache hai eh?

and of course, RD, soak no more, the clothes in the machine for 1/2 hour (Even if they are R’s), because apparently, Surf Excel Hai na?
