Went to the pantry to grab my coffee. (Aah the coffee break on a Monday morning..) And came across 2 of my colleagues arguing.
C1 : "But what about the past? He has done so much. One cant dump him, just because he isnt useful now"
C2 : "Its not dumping. Its just relocating."
C1 : "This is just not Indian culture"
C2 : "Define Indian Culture. And even if its Indian culture, who says everyone should follow it"
C1 : "And what about his hurt. So callous. Its just politics when someone new enters"
C2 : "This has nothing to do with it. Its just a coincidence thats all"
Unable to restrain myself, say, "You know whats amazing C2 you are from Bengal and C1 you from Maharashtra and still you say these things about Saurav.
C1 and C2 stare at me and C1 says coldly "We werent talking about Saurav Ganguly. This is about my father and his new Home."
AAAargh so some people dont talk about Saurav!!
Couldnt resist adding "Indian culture is about taking care of the boy's parents only?"
Now C1 is angry with me for making him feel, he should think about his wife's parents too. And C2 is angry with me for questioning Indian Culture.
Wish people would just talk about Saurav Ganguly. Life would be lot easier for me.
PS : Oh for the folks who are wondering about the title, well if I wrote what I felt about Female Foeticide and what about wives who dont take care of their parents, or asked if the wife is a homemaker, would the husband think its his duty to take care of the wives parents emotionally and financially, would anyone read? Its safer to write about Saurav, if one wants people to read their blogs.
After all Baghban wouldnt have been a hit, if Amitabh had 4 daughters instead of 4 sons.
