a pseudo-photoblog

Questions better not asked..

To a Computer Engineer by qualification :

Qn : “You type so fast. . Did you attend typing classes?”

How I wish I could say : Yes.. I did not waste the months I spent inside my mom’s womb.

Qn : “Come on. . You are doing a Ph.D in Computer Science. . What good are you if you can’t repair my laptop’s broken ethernet port?”

How I wish I could say : You are right. I am never going to graduate this way. I am a useless arse. Let me go hang myself.

To a (sadly) not-so-stereotypical south indian in north india :

Qn : “You are south-indian. . Why are you eating rotis instead of rice?”

How I wish I could say : Genetic Mutation. But I’m sorry. . IΒ  never knew that south-indians are not allowed to eat rotis for lunch. When did they make that amendment to the Indian constitution?

Continued Qn : “You don’t eat idlis also. . How come?”

How I wish I could say : Unfortunately, I don’t eat weapons of mass destruction.

Qn : “You are south-indian. . How come you don’t speak the “Ek Chatur Naar” way – Mehmood-style?”

How I wish I could say : Gosh Ayyo Ayyo. . That hindi teacher be damned .. She never told me that I have to develop an exaggerated stupid accent to prove my linguistic identity.

To a bibliophile..

Qn : “How do you read so many books without falling asleep?”

How I wish I could say : Sigh.. What to do? Insomnia.

Qn : “You even eat with a book in hand and headphones on. . You don’t talk much right?”

How I wish I could say : Kudos to your powers of observation. Yes. I try as much as possible to avoid being asked/hearing/answering such questions. . Today is one of my bad days.

ToΒ  an amateur photographer :

Qn : “You clicked that photograph?…….. I mean, YOU clicked that photograph?”

How I wish I could say : Well.. I know it is difficult to believe.. I may LOOK mentally & visually challenged. . But the situation is not too bad you know..

Qn : “Did you click that photo using a mobile phone camera?”

How I wish I could say : God, take me NOW! I can’t stand such cruelty.

BEWARE : If the mildest side-effect of being asked such questions is such a blog post, how tragic and frightening more serious side-effects could be? For your own good, please think before asking such questions!
