The Mahan Things I have done

The Ladies and Zentlemen,

I want you to read the last line very carefully, varna mera mara hua muh dekhoge(literally).
This is a post , at the end of which you will probably cry or bless me from the core of your very heart.
Yes Of course, is story ki heroine main hu (na :D).Beware, this is the vain-est post you will see from me(I know you might be thinking.. huh! to ye to har post me hi karti hai), but still since I feel very good this morning, here I am on a very self-congratulatory note rather than a self-deprecatory note (which for some reasons is the more applauded one hmph!)

Anyway, here goes a list of the mahan things yours truly has done (they include standing up against injustice,corruption,helping people,being dayavaan and the works) :-

1.A strong believer in equality, and latho ke boot baaton se nai mante.. I promptly threw my pencil-box at my teacher.
She had given my class II ka paper to solve when I was in class I.

2. Once my friend Rupangi fell in a shitload of cow dung and started crying.I thought she was overdoing it, isliye main bhi usi me kood gayi. :P Also she stopped crying and started laughing.

3.My rule of life :- "Call friends when you want to .. irrespective of the fact whether it was you only who had called them the last 100 times" . agar main ye rule follow nahi karti to shayad aaj mere koi dost bachte hi nai :)

4.I have gifted mera bhai a Sony Camera, haven't yet bought one for me.

5.I once went and donated food and clothes to the beggars, without telling anyone at home about it.My mom still wonders where that potli went.

6.I have almost zero savings.I spend all of it on my family. I hate buying shoes for myself, my mom does that for me :)

7.I never forget people, or what they say to me.I can remember all of the stuff they have said to me.However, their memory isn't as good as mine.

8.I have always been fairly good in studies (Not the topper types but still good).I helped my brother who barely passed in Maths in class 11, he scored 79% in class 12. One of my happiest moments.

9. Also, I know that I'm beautiful and that's why I wear glasses, to give others the benefit of doubt.(What shit! glasses suck!They make my nose look chapta and I have to choose my earrings very carefully huh! My tryst with contact lenses is another story though..)

10.I refused to pay the TT bribe , just because I was traveling alone.I said 'aap asli wala fine lijiye , receipt ke sath'. He vanished.

There are thousands of things which I liked doing and made me feel good.

Now I want you to write something in this reply/comment which made you feel good about yourself. Chahe jo bhi ho, kuch bhi ho.I do not want any answers like "yaar tere jaisa to kuch bhi nai"


Happy Holidays :)

Haha....I remember laughing so heard when you hald narrated the 1) story !!
2) is like daag achhe hai :)
3) true true...btw on the first read I thought bachte hi nai hai as mar hi jaate :P Like "passed away" :P

7) I imagined u r like those Naag movies....where the Naag never forgets who killed his naagin, takes a photo in his memory n goes n bites the person in some other place!!

On the glasses, I remember Hrithik saying to a kid in a show-Tell the world I love my glasses becoz it makes the world beautiful for me :)


Niceeee post :))

@Mads :
Dekhaa I knew it! I love the free-notebooks donation. coz if u donate just money they will spend it on other things :)

@Saheli:
Hmm I'v watched that episode too.. and at most times believe that too.. except the times when I have to buy earrings.

Since you did'nt .. I will
