I ask my friend that I am tired of Facebook, getting all the fatuous posts, having no meaning just like Sho Sho Honey Singh’s aalap. Well! If you are unaware of the lyrics of a song, and you are quite bad at guessing a singer by his/her voice, Sho Sho Honey Singh provides you the opportunity to introduce himself in each of his songs by barking his name in each alternative line of his song’s lyrics.( teri Principal bhi baby Sho Sho ki fan hai..). His mixture of Punjabi and English always has been a question mark on his identity : Whether is he a Punjabi Pop singer or an English rapper. He starts off his songs well in English verse – Blue eyes hypnotise… a non-Punjabi fan thinks.."Oh here comes our English rapper!" and finishes off his verse with : choti dress main, bomb lagdi mennu , rejuvenating Punjabi fans “Munda to apna Punjab da putar hai”.
Shit! I deviated from my topic under discussion. Let him be whoever he is. Definitely my these good words might have raised eyebrows of many of his die-hard fans. Okay.. No more praiseworthy words for our Punglish(Punjabi + English) singer. Meanwhile, my friend replies to my dilemma :
-Yeah ! you are right. Even I am bored of Facebook (but still I find him online each time I go on the line ).
-Lets switch to another social networking site. I advice him : As if, there are plenty of option available!! Facebook has rich number of users in India. And if you are willing to switch to another social site, you will find yourself alone in Sahara Desert.
-All social sites are same. I don’t find anyone interesting, anymore.
-Lets create a new one!! I reply with tongue out of mouth smiley.
-Yes! that’s an excellent idea.Lets open our own company. Lets kick off our work. You become CTO and I’ll happy to be CEO.
-Yeah! Firstly we have to hire 4/5 addicted software (so called system’s) engineers. And we’ll name it *******.com. Fix a meeting tomorrow at 5 , in the morning at Taj hotel. I’ll be there.
-No! tomorrow I’ll be in Paris . If you manage to come over there, we can discuss with bed tea.
-No ! No!.. I’ll be managing a Swedish client at bed time..
-Then get the **** off.
-Ok, Lets lets drop this idea till further discussion. I hope you will manage.
-Great… as you wish !!
And that’s how our future-popular company remained only a plan unexecuted, breaking the heart of all future fans and users. And in agony of unwanted, uninteresting and insipid posts I ramped down my Facebook friends list from 350 to 87, deleting all alien faces. All the reason I can provide for this objectionable behaviour is : I like friends but i don’t like friend of friends much !! However, you can definitely come to me at any point of time and ask “Do I give a shit of what you like ! ” and all I could reply is : Hallelujah !!
Let me move your attention to another trending topic and of-course a favourite time pass for people like us . Movies!!
“Haven’t you seen Andaaj apna apna !” One of the movie names people query about me with their disdainful eyes looking directly at me. “Can you believe it !! You know what, this fellow hasn’t seen Koi..mil gya !!” with eyes getting broader and broader getting my negative response. Friends also have started complaining that most of the times they find me napping in theatres, and at the end of the movie, asking them question about how the story ended!
Well ! there is no explanations I can provide about my untimed naps in theatres. But, about the Bollywood movies: I find their stories predictable, repeating the basic theme (so called love themes) in nearly most of the movies. Most movies start with a solid action and powerful dialogues. Then,the hero makes a dashing entry; meets the actress and love happens in air, and as usual always the third wheel, the villain comes into action. Whether you start watching a Hindi movies from the beginning or in between the middle, you can always guess the past as well the upcoming plot of the story. …Emotional Atyachar is going on… all of a sudden an item song comes from no where…song ends, the Atyachar continues… At last the villain gets beaten and the love couples enjoys a happy ending. In all these unfavourable conditions how can you expect me watching movies uninterruptedly and attentively !!
PS : No offense intended to die-hard fans of, Sho Sho Honey Singh or Bollywood movies …
