Pinch Boxing

"Whatcha doing?" I asked her as she stood in a questionable position in the jogger's park, early morning.

How early? Even the slum dwellers had not come out on the streets for their morning potty.

'I am practising a new form of defence,' she replied peacefully.

'Defense, that is interesting. Some trouble?' I quizzed.

'I met my old friends today over lunch then we went shopping, and in the evening we took coffee at CCD,' she started.

'So we were discussing relationships, she was telling how she has screwed her life and how practical she has become after her first breakup I haven't told anyone about my boyfriend, but it made me think of how foolish and stupid I am...'

About time, don't you think?

'..and how I am not doing anything about it, also they told me that I have lost a lot of weight, which is sad because people keep asking if I am sick or something...'

Uh oh, is there an emergency exit around? The monster is out of control.

' hair and skin is a mess... '

She took a deep breath, '...and on top of that, the evil exam planners are showing results next week.'

'Oh dear, that's quite a lot of drama for a Rakhi Sawant too...' I exclaimed.

'...and I couldn't sleep for days, plus I feel depressed at home, I might as well end my life if it wasn't for my parents.' she concluded.

'You know your life is not exactly in a mess. You do know what you have to do.'

'I have thought a lot, and I know what the right thing to do is but the problem is, do I have the guts to do that? Do I have the courage to confront my boyfriend straight in his face? Can I think of losing him? After so many years.
I am hopeless and will be'

'Good, do you know, how many years it takes for an average human being to accept that he is hopeless?' I started, it was my turn to start, 'There are people at age 80, who find it hard to accept. You at age 21 have accepted it, I think its a good start.'

'Instead of worrying so much about your life, live it and let the universe take care of your problems.' I suggested the Universe works for me.

'Yeah, I am avoiding him for two weeks, and I am keeping self-control over me, so I don't think he will be such a problem. And my dad has been asking me to join him in yoga for many days for my health problem.'

'In just 15 secs of accepting you are hopeless, you have solved two major problems in your life.' I exclaimed.

'Naah, it is just that my leg hurts and I crib a lot na.' she smiled.

'Obviously you too...' I replied.

'How many other crybabies you know?' she.

'Well, only 400 million other people, at the last count.' me.

'Haha, glad I am normal.' she.

'Aren't we all?' I quipped.

'I thought I was in the sadist period,' she beamed.

'Planet Earth is in sadist period since the ice age,' I replied.

'So this new form of defence... what is it?' I asked, not sure what she was doing so far.

'It is called pinch boxing,' she replied, 'An ancient elite form of martial arts practised by woman all over the world since the Egyptians.'

'You mean punch boxing?' I confirmed.

'No I mean, pinch boxing... now go, or I will give you a demo...' she threatened.

'Hold on, you said its a new art form, but now you saying its old?' I asked, 'What are you doing....'

Ow. Ow. Ow.

The moaning of life #2 Childhood Trauma

The entire shark family is out for a hunt, and the little fish are running for their life. We get to cheer as the Baby Shark does Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo with his family, calling on the family - extended family and sometimes robots on the 'hunt' because your offspring decides that that is the one song they want you to play or a tantrum follows. Many of you will say it's not the content but the catchy tune that draws the babies towards the nonsequential song, but it's more than that. It's the sheer repeatedness that draws your angst towards the piece. And YouTube provides the music based on how much time you want your baby to be engaged to it. You have a 60+ minute version and a 120+ minute version. The same shark family going out on the same hunt. And it's not just the Shark family. Weirdly, baby JJ and his family sing random songs, go on a holiday and even increase the family. I am talking about Cocomelon, which has arrived in your child's life as he murmurs t

Short Story: Ginger Chai

This is my first attempt for writing a love story, which I am really bad at. Mani Padma (from Ginger Chai ) challenged me to write a love story a few days ago, it is not a real great read, but a little feeble attempt to take a taste in this genre. Please give your honest opinion… Cheers, Sid. *fingers crossed* Breathe in. Breathe out. Damm, this is so easy when you are not tensed. Why is this clerk talking so much time. ‘Will you hurry up?’ I asked the clerk. My finger nails were tapping the counter in excitement. My name is Shailaja, 30, single and employed, in short a perfect girl for the aunties, mammies to constantly remind me that my days are waning out, that I have to find someone before it is impossible for them to. It is not that I don’t want to get married, but I should get some proper match, isn’t it? All they show me is either short, tall, long nose, meaning some imperfection in some way or the other. I am not at all hopeless romantic and I am definitely not goin

We used to build civilizations. Now we build shopping malls.

The human evolution is a constant race against boredom, men have for generations tried to overcome boredom is many ways possible. In olden days, they got bored, they build civilizations, big massive civilizations. The ancient Egyptians had pyramids, the Babylon build the hanging garden for people to hang out. People from far and wide come to visit the Taj Mahal, praising its divine beauty, not knowing that it was build after the wife died, thus partly in guilt. Rome was not build in a day, indication they were super bored. Then came the great barbarian evolution and they started raiding cities. Don't forget Atila the Hun who constantly attacked cities whenever he got free time. Alexander was super bored and he decided to conquer the entire world, but while these men where attacking cities and building civilizations, the women where thrown into a abyss of impending boredom. What would Mrs. Atila do when her husband was busy attacking Rome? Or What would the wives of the
