Yesterday I visited my sister and Bro-In Law, it was quite natural to get a bit of privileged care and attention over their kids. My BIL works in a Government Organization and they are put-up in a residential house provided by the Organization. Its has basic accommodation with 2 BHK, one of the bed room were shared by my nephew’s Keerthan and Goutham. But the main problem was my sleeping accommodation, with me being 6 feet and all of them being dwarfs of 5.5 feet and lower, it was decided that I would get the entire hall for my self. It was quiet good for me, as I am a late sleeper (Got habituated due to my work timings – supporting US markets), I wouldn’t disturb my nephews who have to wake up early in the morning for their schools.
A bed was arranged, a fresh set of bed sheet, pillow, etc were placed. Me and my BIL started to do a bit of chit chat and were watching highlights of India Vs Australia T20.
BIL: These guys have lost the match once again. Don’t understand why they loose overseas or don’t know why the captains are so terrified to be aggressive. (I have heard this question numerous times in last one week or so, they know its useless to ask this question, still they can’t resist)
Me: In think they lack motivation.
BIL: WTF, what kind of motivation they want, someone to promise to strip naked, like that Poonam Pandey, promise a lot and deliver nothing.
Me: I think they are disappointed that she didn’t do what she promised
BIL: What’s there to see, a bone stick and a bit of meat at right places and an ugly face, you would see a much better looking lady on the street.
Me: She did it only for publicity, in reality she wouldn’t dare to strip.
While we were discussing this, on TV we saw a guy holding a board “If India wins today, I will dance Naked”
BIL: Hmm, see now Media won’t do anything or conduct an interview of this guy or publicize this guy, why why? Because First he is not famous or a celebrity and second, but the most important factor is that he is “he” and not “she”.
Me: Agree, they wouldn’t get any masala to print on their Page 3 section.
BIL: Its not about that the morality of media is in gutters these days and they are quiet happy about it. They don’t care what is right or wrong, all they want to show is the things that give highest TRP. In a few years they will show Porn movies on TV’s and shows and they will justify it as normal human nature to have sex, so we are showing it. They wouldn’t mind to announce that National Geographic, Discovery shows animals doing it, why can’t us, we are also animals.
Me: Take a chill pill BIL, Govt. would do something.
BIL: Govt. my foot, they even didn’t know who sunny leone was were promising that they would take action if any thing illegal takes place now. What about the free publicity she has gained, will the Govt. be acting in same way for a woman who is from “Red Light” area in Mumbai or from Kolkata, no they wouldn’t.
Me: Leave that all aside, I have to wake up early tomorrow and catch the bus to home.
BIL: Ok, here is your pillow, catch.
BIL threw the pillow towards me, we said good night to one another and he left for his room. He had disappeared into his room and I was just about to sleep, when he came out the room:
BIL: Don’t face your head towards the north direction.
BIL: Its believed that, while sleeping if head faces north direction than that persons head would be used to replace the head of Lord Ganesh.
Me: Oye!, its good than, I will be lord Ganesh or leastwise my head will be.
Both of us had good laugh and BIL understood that its useless to argue on this point.
Actually a scientific reason is behind this belief, but what we are thought or made understand or told is “it is what it is, don’t ask questions”
here is the reason:
We all know that our planet has a magnetic pole stretched from north to south with the positive pole at the north and the negative pole at the south. Now, health scientists tell us that we too have a similar magnetic stretch with the positive pole at the head and the negative one at the feet.
It is common knowledge that like poles repel and unlike poles attract not only scientific but also in social spheres. When we lay our heads on the north side, the two positive sides repel each other and there is a struggle between the two.
Since the earth has a greater magnetic force, we are always the losers, and rise in the morning with headache or heaviness.
I decided to sleep with my head facing north direction, on experimental basis but alas nobody replaced my Lord Ganesha’s head with mine. Only thing I got was horror dream of me watching Poonam pandey strip. Yak, what a disgusting dream.
