Hey guys!

As Charles Baudelaire said, “The world only goes round by misunderstanding.” He is cent percent correct in saying this. Wondering why I am quoting a French poet, that too for ‘misunderstanding’ and how come I know about him. Nothing to fear, when uncle Google is there. Right? Now, I’ll tell you why I started with misunderstanding.

Yesterday morning I entered office with ‘ebullience’ and high spirits and asked everyone in the room, “Guys, did you hear the news?” VJ said with completely opposite energy, “Yes! And that is the most preposterous thing I have ever heard.” I was puzzled at what she was saying. Preposterous? “And Sky, I always knew that you are somewhat stupid and dumb, but you are now turning out to be a total MCP.” She didn’t let me say anything. “Wait, what is MCP?” I asked. MCP is a male chauvinist pig. I was shocked and wondering what is wrong with her. I mean things are always wrong with her, but yesterday was beyond wronger.

“VJ, today your mind is out of ozone. Why would you call me an MCD or P or whatever it is?” I said. Then, as usual, our fight began. Then, Riya came in between, who has now become the referee of mine and VJ’s WWE matches. Poor her! “Guys, will you two shut up? Do the both of you drink petrol or kerosene in the morning? A little spark is more than enough to aflame you two,” Riya screamed at us like a mom screaming at her two always fighting kids.

Riya first asked me about the news I was excited. I told her I was jumping for Rohit Sharma’s historic record in the ODI cricket. That was so dope, man! Hats off to him. Right after hearing this, VJ said, “Oh, that news?! I thought you are talking about the AMU library issue. And you are happy that girls are being denied the access of Maulana Azad Library. Oops!” I asked if she wanted to say anything else, hinting at apology for calling me stupid, dumb and MCP. She apologized for MCP and said that she won’t apologise for something which is a fact, i.e., stupid and dumb. But I laughed it off.

But, we continued the discussion over Lt. Gen. Zameeruddin Shah saying that girls attract boys and if one girl goes to the library more boys will come. This will enhance the problem of space. If there is so much problem of space, why he can’t allot certain days to different courses. Is he forgetting that male population is much more than girls? With that logic boys should not be allowed in the library at all because the space problem will persist. 

“Please someone tell me who appoint such people for these posts. I think they should not be permitted to speak in public at all. Even if they are accidentally permitted to speak, then their speeches should be scripted. They should not be allowed to speak their absent minds,” I said. How do they even get such thoughts? Riya said, “Did you hear that Manjhi has yet again dared to open his mouth and said that upper caste people are foreigners. They do not belong to the country. In this library case, Shah Sahab doesn’t belong to this planet. In fact, every person who has made such outrageous comments are not ‘dhartiwasi’.”

Sorry Rohit Sharma, but Manjhi sir and Shah sir, have taken your moment of hats off. They deserve it more with some “slow claps and face palm”.

What do you people say?

Ciao!
