Psycho….. A word with such negative contations; yet who hasn’t seen themselves in that mirror before? Anyone who would say otherwise is just blind to their own possible reflections!
Now let me see who proclaims to be dwelling outside the Realm of Psychos! Thanks Rene.
I for one thought that I had been cured with so much concern about my mental well being but seems like “Psycho” has Black hole traits. Unescapable, I move on from one psycho act to another. For instance writing in Nepali. Hehehe. Btw let me reveal the great secret, I don’t know Nepali typing :). But its not like I first wrote it in English and then someone else translated it into Nepali like some of my friends thought. Hehe.. I can write in Nepali though I lack practice and still find lot of words like “Ghumlunga pareko sweater” strange and laugh when people ask me “Kahan cheu”.Nevertheless I have a Private Nepali vocabulary which includes words like “Gappe”! It means…..serious….hahaha. Like your passport size photo. 🙂
Hmm but writing the article below was fun! Hope none of my relatives ever utter that “Only Daughters” dialogue ever Again!! It just reached the climax when an oldie told my Mom “You should have a son” A few weeks ago in a Bratabanda ceremony! Malai ta Budi Ko bangara jhardina man lagirathyo but ya pretended not to have heard it! No use reacting either “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks”. Anyways I plan to have a Football Team of Daughters if this high tech sexism of Sex Selective Abortion Continues! Wish Me Luck!! HAHAHA
The responses were cooler. I had only opened my eyes in the morning when I received an sms reading:
“Waw! Gagan Thapa ko article tala arko netri ko artical raicha!”
I replied ” You sure are very fast”.
N I couldn’t have expected an answer smarter than this:
” Ma sikshit chu, jaagir khanchu, ghar samhalchu..ani fast ta hunnai paryo ni! Hehehe ”
Another friend called me and her last words were ” Ani ma chahin pakka dadu punyeu ko kura gardina” She is a Mindblowing Cook!
I just checked my mailbox and man I JUST LOVED the responses I received. Some five or six of them and that Feels Sooooo Good judging by the fact that I am just a nobody from nowhere and yet they mailed me!! I will reply back to all of em’, increase my gmail real ID circle or rathertell them to visit my blog! Hey that’s easier then we could all discuss it here 🙂 .. I just know how it feels to be sending emails and later regret doing it because you don’t even receive a smiley for an answer…THat’s Rude. N blog readers sorry for not responding thy cool comments will do that after this..
For now let me continue with the responses:
One girl two years my senior writes:
“You had written BESHYA BRITI IS ALSO SHAMmaNIT PESA. SAMAJ TYAHA PUGI SHAKYO. OHO DEAR FRIEND u don’t have right to randomly to do analist of society ko k. u can do like that service, u have think deeply, ra kohi sex worker lai shodha , is she really can do pride from her work.If they can hatmukh jodna aru kam garera kohipani mahila tyasto kam garna chahadainan, u have todo reserch k sister. “
“I really liked your all explanations about women characteristics of NEPAL and couraging them to change on their think. I think you must differ from all of this characteristics according to your statements and we(Nepalese) need such types of people to revolute all women’s charactoristics and their think and thinking style. But one thing the most important is do as you say for ‘think revolution’ which results the actual change.”
I differ ya for sure…I will Never Ever Be A Scared Cook in the Kitchen. For starters I rather scare people with my culinary skills than be scared myself. And for me Men who can’t cook aren’t “Men” at all!!
As Kamala Bhasin puts it : “IF A WOMAN CAN COOK, SO CAN A MAN, BECAUSE A WOMAN DOESN’T COOK WITH HER WOMB!”
Talkin of equality in my house ,Dad cooks just Babbal and he isn’t only the “Dad Dish” maker as most are but a everyday cook. Both mom and dad in the kitchen, that makes for up for taste bud xploding meals( N both work). So we sisters are strictly Spoon Users just to avoid swallowing our fingers 😉
Anyways getting back to the comments this one takes away all the prizes:
“Namaste, Firstly I would like to say u congrats for writing a good article on kantipur.I like kantipur n article too, published on ktp. I like ur frankness.
For eg: I am 21 yrs old, I ve not married…..
MUJHESE DOSTI KAROG??????????????????????????????????????????????
It had me rolling with laughter. Actually mentioning my age and single status was someone else’s idea. I had vehemently disagreed to it reasoning ” Why should I mention my age, sex, height, weight and I’m unmarried as though I were desperately searching for a husband?” But then the sb convinced me saying it went well with the article gave the personal touch. It seems to have paid 😉
My reply will surely Be WeLCOme To My Life! 🙂
