Greetings Sajha and this is the weekend edition of Rants and
Don’t you just hate when people write ambiguous status
updates on Facebook so that others would write comments on their wall? “Rajiv
thinks enough is enough”, Neha is going for a big one. “Jason is on a
rollercoaster ride.” Who the fu<k cares? So if you are one of those
attention-seeking wh0res dying for sympathy comments through ambiguous status
updates or profile picture updates of your hideous face rotated at various acute
angles, here is a gift for you.-->(Gift Link)
There was shocking news from the Cat Valley. After 50 years,
government has finally adopted plan B to clean up Bagmati and other holy
rivers. Plan A was crossing fingers and hoping eventually that the
temple Gods would be sick of human garbage and spread a leprosy outbreak over
Kathmandu, killing all those whose crap landed in Bagmati. Now what the
government is planning to do may be great news to some of you folks but I am
appalled. See when we dumped our garbage we were not defiling our holy rivers.
Instead, we were sanctifying our shit with holy water. Now our crap is no
different from crap all over the world. If the government is planning to take
our shit to a landfill, either they get a priest to pray over our sacred shit
or we call for a Nepal Bandh.
No Junk in da Trunk:
Just as Microsoft decided to show its new OS, Windows 7,
Apple released a new iMac with a strange
mouse this week. It’s called the magic mouse and it has no buttons or a
scroll wheel, or wires. Multi-touch functionality may be one thing but that
mouse is ugly. You can’t have a sexy mouse without a
decent hump to back it up. What guy wants to hold a flat mouse that won’t
properly support his palm? Sorry Apple, that flat ass ain’t gonna cut it.
In Sajha, the most exciting thread was why
women in villages don’t wear panties. I observed the post from the beginning
and after Kuhirey posted it, it took 11 replies before someone actually
attempted to answer the question. The rest of you were outright offended by
such a question and had to show your typical mob behavior. You would probably
be offended if Kuhirey asked why nepali people eat with their hands, or why
they dump their sh*t in the holy rivers (which I hope I have made clear). The
thread has got more than 6800 views and I am surprised no one fu*king googled
First, women in the villages do wear underwear. They are
called petticoats. They don’t wear panties. This is the history of underwear:
To understand why they don’t wear panties, first look at
what they are really wearing. Women in villages were saris (fariya/dhotis). In
order to wear a sari, you need a petticoat to hold the sari in place. Now
if you wear panties underneath, it’s like you are wearing an underwear on top
of another. Only city women and marvel superheroes have the money and the balls
to pull that off.
Another reason why women might prefer petticoats to panties:
Ff nice read keep em coming. Thanks for touching upon the underwear thread which gained a lot of unnecessary dirt along the way but I can't think of anything that won't. Even an honest question about which college to choose gets turned into a battlefield. Which leads me to formulate more generic questions about the nepali psyche but I will withold those from this thread.
I do have gripes about the ambiguous status in facebook as well. Either have courtesy to share what the hell you're talking about or don't bother us wit your semi encoded status.
Thanks to those who commented. Yellow, sorry I do not have a blog. I don't intend to have one soon either. I thought about starting a blog sometime back, but really, notwithstanding the fact I will have a limited audience, I am too lazy to keep it going. In the meantime, I will stick with Sajha. FF
I logged into sajha after a long time, and it was good to see you writing again ff...
However, on the facebook status thing, do you really think people update their statuses just to seek attention? How about a post in sajha then? Wouldn't that be seeking attention? Where do we draw the line? At least status updates is targetted at friends. Here in sajha, a blogger is basically saying, OK World!!Listen to what i have to say. I am sure, your intention is not to seek attention from sajha users but to express your thoughts, or even feelings(if i may). And, I think, facebook users you described above probably don't think about such things too when they update their status or profile pictures. I don't think its a good idea to simply analyze people's mind based on what we think. People may think differently, probably less cynical. Just my thought...
About ambiguity of the statuses, many a times, people post statuses targetting a specific group of their friends to whom the status is not as ambiguous, may be even an inside joke. Unfortunately, facebook doesn't have a way ( at least to my knowledge ) to only have certain group of people view certain statuses.
I, too, am not keen in seeing status updates of all the people in my facebook. Facebook, therefore, has a hide button. One click of it, and you will forever, be free of the status updates :)
It was good to see you come back and write again though. Keep writing.
