I live in a country, which is culturally very diverse. There are over 17 major languages in India.Different dialects , in India number over several hundreds and the number of actual spoken languages reach over 2500.
Like the language, the taste of food also changes every 10 kms or so. To bring an order to this awesome diversity, major corporates are opening coffee shops and tea shops every 10 Kms.Good! . Thanks for them everything everywhere taste like water these days.(I rest my case of Flu, Not the swine one.)
OKay, Lets talk more sense, than this Free Geography lessons.
Me, my cousin and some of my friends, were having a heated debate. Since we are not allowed to debate inside the home, we chose the terrace.
We were discussing about balls, Football, that is. Chelsea vs Assanals.(Excuse me, I dont know the spelling of any teams other than Chelsea).
I was amazed by the way, they were debating by telling the statistics of the game, ironically most of them don't even remember the title name of the first chapter in their text books.
The intellectual brainstorming was proceeding at full swing, when one of my friend, Ullekh got a call on his mobile phone.
The discussion came to halt like, how you want to sneeze and it wont happen thingy.
His face lit up like that of a rat who had found cheese. It was his girl friend who was calling him, disturbing him, when we were, busy discussing about foot ball.Kishore, who was high on debate, snatched the phone from the hands of Ullekh and cancelled the call.
His phone had a horrible ringtone.Don't know if he had kept that exclusively for that girl.
This, started a fresh round of debates.Now, I say,this is becoming more interesting.
According to an unwritten rule, when two friends in our friend's circle pickup a verbal fight or argument, nobody should take sides. Let those contenders, fight it off or argue it off, till the adrenaline subsides.The remaining people should remain like, whut...ever.
Actually, this is a good time to listen and learn a lot of things.
1) New swear words.Swear words differ from place to place, even though in same state or county or what ever.
2) The way they position themsleves in arguement and the points in arguments.
3) For awesome intellectual outbreaks like , Go F[beep] with your tentacles.[ I googled and learnt that Octopus does that and it was a mystery for many years.]
For you to understand the argument between my friends, I am giving it below as a conversation.
Ullekh :F[beep] you.
Kishore: F[beep ] you too..
Ullekh: Why the hell did you cut the call.
Kishore: Why the hell you didn't pick the call. You have a horrible ringtone.
Ullekh :F[beep] you Idiot.
Kishore: F[beep ] your [beep]..
My Conscious: Whose gonna have their first cigar now?
They changed their oral sex to more comfortable language: Amchi Local Mallu[ Malayalam] swear words. Their awesome vocabulary in English was limited to a very few words for intimate actions and body parts. Kindergarten Kids!
Kishore:Stop it there.WHAT?..What was that you called me?
My Conscious:uh oh!!! Houston...we have a problem.
Ullekh:BEEP [ He repeated the same word again]
Kishore:WHAT was that again?
Kishore: Wow!!Whats the meaning of that? My bro calls me that always when he gets angry at me. What does that mean?Tell me.
My Conscious: Hmm...somebody is getting benefited from this argument. Poor Kishore, how much he must be suffering, mentally without knowing the meaning of what his elder bro called him, unable to clear it with his elder bro, cuz they are allowed to call but not explain.
Now, Ullekh looks very much surprised and Kishore looked like a desciple, surrendering himself in front of the awesome knowledge of Ullekh- The guru.
We all had a good laugh over it. I think that was the word for the day.
Some people asked me after reading this blog,(privately of course), What was the word?I appreciate their thirst for knowledge. The word was simple, but the way its pronounced was funny.
**The word meant the his/her becoming an autoexec.bat.(Go figure!)
