Life learning lessons by Bollywood. 87

Acclaimed as one of the biggest film industry of the world, Bollywood is the best. Isn’t it??

We all have grown watching Bollywood films. From Unlucky lovers and angry parents, love triangles, family attachments, sacrifice, crooked politicians, kidnappers, devious villains, courtesans with golden hearts, long-lost relatives, theatrical reversals of destiny to siblings estranged by fate, Bollywood features one and all. Though with time movies have changed and got matured, it still sometimes gives you your life learning lessons!!(Now I am going sarcastic)

After watching Bollywood for so many years now, I have learnt few of ‘those’ kind of lessons 😉

  1. When it rains, it is very important for you to throw everything and dance(‘Nachoo main aaj cham cham’) to rejuvenate yourself and feel fresh. Although I suggest you at least keep your wallets and mobiles safe so that you can get back home, once the rain stops and you are totally drenched. He he!!
  2. It’s necessary to dance on top of trains, buses or any moving vehicles when you are in love. I suggest you better join some dancing classes early on and learn some balancing acts on your feet just to be safe. 😉
  3. When a mother gives birth to twins; one is an angel and the other has to go a wrong way in life OR one of the twin gets separated and lost. So watch out ladies, if you are going to deliver twins.
  4. Do not worry if you ever have to defuse a bomb. After some thinking about red or blue or yellow, whichever wire you cut, you will do it right. Trust me on this! ….wink wink!
  5. When you just wake up from a coma, you can just pull out the IV tubes, toss on the million dollar jacket and run wherever you left before. You will do fine.
  6. If you have a son, name him Raj, Prem or Rahul. Only these both are the smartest, richest, powerful and cutest who will always win in anything.( Bollywood Khans rocks!!)
  7. All a boring husband needs to do is change his hairstyle, throw those spectacles and buy a new set of jeans to become a different man. Wife just cannot find out and you will become perfect ‘Rab ne bana di jodi’ types.
  8. When someone is drowning all you need to do is simply jump to save the person, even when you do not know swimming. Because the people staring at the first person drowning are going to pull you both out.
  9. If you are planning to call for a police, time it out wisely because you know, the police always come in the last or in the end of any event.
  10. The woman with too much makeup, high heels, and dark lipstick is always a stepmother or a villain. Think twice next time you want to buy a darker shade lipstick.;)
  11. We women, can sleep with all makeup and jewellery on and don’t worry about that 10k banarasi saree, you will not find even a crease on it in the morning.
  12. When you spend the little money you were left with on a medicine which is going to save a life and you are running in the rain ( I don’t know why Bollywood is obsessed with rain) the bottle always slips and falls on the ground, breaking into pieces. So I suggest never run in the rain with medicine in the hand. Catch a rickshaw boss! You will reach faster too.
  13. Women will be easily going to fall in love with a man who has an expensive alcoholic bottle in hand, a 5’0 Clock Shadow beard, old ripped jeans, and a sad look in the eyes. Really??… I wonder sometimes 😉

See, the Bollywood is the most charming, masala, and interesting movies to watch that teach us so many things. I am not sure if you have learnt anything from it or not, I definitely have learned my lessons. Is there anything else you learned that is not mentioned in my list.

If you think, there are few more to the list. Please share and let’s spread the gyaan together.

WARNING: These are the lessons strictly to be tried at your own risk. 😉

How I was Duped? 180

This happened many years back, probably in 2011, early months of my marriage. Till date, I still feel ashamed of my naivety. However, I would like to share my story with you all, hoping to warn, if you find yourself in any such a situation. Although I doubt anyone can be as stupid as me, but opportunist and cheaters are found everywhere. So be warned and be careful.

It was one of those busy and hot summer days and I was totally engrossed in my work at home when suddenly the door bell rang. I’ am always careful not opening the door to strangers and so opened the window to check who it was. There was a salesman who wanted to do a survey on a new toothbrush that was introduced into the market. He said he will give me three brand new toothbrush for free and he will be back after a week. I am supposed to use the brush and answer few questions for his survey. Along with that, he will also give me a ticket with a number which has a lucky draw. There were different prizes and if my ticket wins he will get the prizes along with him the next week. All in all, I thought there is no harm in taking those sealed brushes with the ticket. I took them and kept it aside and forgot all about it.

After a week, the same man appeared in front of my door again. I remembered him very well. He said I have won some gifts worth 800/- Rs items and he showed them all to me. He asked me for the ticket. I searched all around the house but in vain and told him that I have lost the lucky draw slip. He told me that there is another customer who have won a refrigerator and those people have shifted their house. He can give that lucky draw slip to me along with the other gifts that I have won and all I need to do is pay him 600/- Rs and I will be getting the refrigerator too. He said he will also give me his phone number and his office number if I need to check. For a moment I could not believe my luck and got carried away. For more than a year I was talking to my husband about buying a new refrigerator as ours was an old model and desperately wanted one.

Now, this man tells me that I would be getting a refrigerator of a lucky draw, was like a God sent a gift and I did not think further. Though I was doubtful, the man convinced me that I need to pay first as he needs to report about the changes in his office to send the refrigerator to my address. Finally, I gave in and paid him 600 Rs and took the other gifts. He said he will be back within an hour. Once he left, I had to finish some work. Later when I got free, I checked the other free items that he gave me and found them all used items and some of them broken though the packs were new. Then is when I realized of foul play and called the phone numbers he gave me. One of the numbers went to a gold shop and the other to a placement consultancy. I realized that I was duped by the salesman and there is no refrigerator on its way reaching our home.

I consoled myself thinking that I was lucky enough that the man did not hit me on my head and steal the house. I learned my lesson and since then I am always careful with people around who wants to sell something to us.

The True Face of a Resume!! 309

I am not sure how many of you believe in a resume but I for one, have never believed in one. It may sure tell us the educational details or some other information which a person can directly tell while in an interview. Sure it saves a lot of time, yet I wonder why an interviewer asks them again though. Such are the times our minds keep screaming “It’s already written in my CV, can’t you see it, sir/madam?” Oh! Well, our face might be deceptive at that time. A resume can never tell you so many things and a lot many times talented people may lose a chance of meeting their destiny or companies may not be able to hire good and talented people just because their resumes did not fancy the interviewer’s requirement. Given the chance to write one cool resume, what would you write? Here is mine.

Objective

To find a job that actually pays without asking me to work more than my limits, giving plenty of free time to relax and have a word with family and friends while I catch up with some of the work.

Personal Skills

a) I might be the first – in walking out of the office doors at the evening

b) The best talking and chatting companion you can ever find

c) cat-like reflexes- The moment you see me and decide there is something wrong in my work and needs discussion, Meow… I am not there.

d) I can sleep well any time of the day and anywhere.

e) I have good communication skills. By phone, by SMS, by group chats, by emails, and also through other Internet facilities that you provide.

f) I know my way around MS Word.

Experience

I am well experienced in any kind of arguments and can fairly win. I have a good experience in eating all kind of tasty vegetarian foods. I have good experience in trying to control gaining weight. I can tell you well as how to write a CV, just like this one. I am a good listener you see because I usually don’t try too hard to listen to what other person is talking. I am extremely good at researching on Google for information. Am a good dreamer, as I have spent most of my time in day-dreaming.

Education

I can read and write. I am educated enough to understand the basic languages ( ie., Hindi, English, Kannada and so on).

I have fairly got through a degree without trying too hard to pay off my pockets. Half way through various other certificate programs. We shall discuss that when we meet.

Reference

Me- Because who else can tell you better about me than I?

There, now you know everything about me, lets meet and talk about some important things that I might have missed mentioning here and you can give me the joining papers. You can also share what would be my salary on joining without feeling much shy. I am quite friendly and adaptable person.

See Ya soon,

XYZ
