FIND LOG....


Once upon a time, in a land not so different from ours, lived a beautiful princess. A beautiful brown princess. The princess was loved by her king father and her queen mother. She was allowed to draw on the walls, walk around with a huge towel on her hair pretending to be Rapunzel and they even let her hang upside down on the mango tree right outside their castle. Basically the princess was brought up in the most awesome way ever!

And then the little princess grew up. The na├»ve princess used to still hang upside down on the tree, much to the private entertainment of the village goons. She wore things that were not princess like but was rated top by Elle magazine and began to attend late night princess parties. She occasionally even smoked on some grass. But she did all of this knowing that her Daddy King and Mommy queen will love her through all her wishes. And then one day when the princess fell in love with a local boy from the flea market, her king dad and queen mother summoned her to their chamber and uttered the three words of doom………….. ‘LOG KYA KAHENGE’

So, the princess took off her princess crown and set out on a long journey in search of these ‘LOG’, in order to find out what they had to say about her princessy affairs.

Castle walls were jumped, the perimeters of the kingdom were traversed, mountains were climbed and rivers were crossed in search of these mystical creatures called ‘LOG’. And just when her princess feet were about to give up, she saw shadows beyond a thick glass of fog. She dragged herself across till she finally saw a huge crowd of ‘LOG’ who were saying too much to decipher. Like a swarm of bees.

The princess concentrated on this particular lady from the gang of LOG, so that she could finally hear what the LOG said. “Pata Hai,Ramu ki beti ka selection IIT mein nahi hua” said one member of the LOG clan to another, to which the other replied “Aur kya tumhe pata hai, Sushma ka beta Videshi Bahu ghar laya hai. Bechari Sushma.”. The princess overheard someone else saying “Are Maloom hai, Suraj ji ki beti ne lou marriage kar li. Ab kaise mooh dikhayenge Suraj ji.” And then came another one “Prakash ka ek beta hua hai aaj. Log keh rahe hain ki wo baccha prakash ki tarah nahi dikhta.” The buzzing went on and on, till the princess fainted because of the headache.

On opening her eyes, she again concentrated to hear more from the LOG. She wanted to hear more about the guy who brought a Videshi bahu home, or about the Ramu ki beti who couldn’t get through IIT. But she couldn’t hear even a faint whisper about them, for they were now replaced by new stories ranging from “Asha ki tummy tuck operation” to “Ranjit ki beti ka short skirt”. There were new stories and the old ones died a happy death.

It is then that it dawned upon the little princess that these news including her princess affairs are like Bread. No one relishes on a stale bread. Once the bread gets stale, a new packet of MODERN SWEET BREAD is bought from Kake ki Dukaan. The circle continues. The LOG needed fresh dough every day.

So the princess returned to her princess castle and declared to her Daddy King and Mommy queen “The LOG  may have too much to say, but whatever they say has a validity period which is very restricted. I think I can survive that.”

And so, the pretty brown princess married the local boy from the flea market and lived happily ever after. Killing fleas.

THE END.

P.S- If I tell such stories to my kids, they might just crawl away and never return.
P.P.S- I lost a tooth yesterday. Long story.

  5. “The LOG may have too much to say, but whatever they say has a validity period which is very restricted. I think I can survive that.” .... That's the perfect answer.... and the one I keep saying to people... and I ended up getting the tag of "Stubborn Girl", which I'm so proud of ;)

  10. Well people do need something to gossip about in their free time don't they ;) and if ramu ki beti, sushma ki bahu and prakash ka beta can give them their share of entertainment, they should be happy about it and just leave it at that. Hell they are the center of attention/attraction ;)

  13. Very amusing story about the abstract and amorphous thing called 'they' that keeps changing its interest every minute.The foolish princess who often hung upside down was surprisingly wise to understand it and marry the flea market boy..

  14. Oh I so loved this. Believe me, I'm gonna read this to my kids one day, so that they do what they want to do without worrying about the LOG. Crazy bunch of people these LOG are I tell you.

    The LOG are already telling my MIL, "Aapki bahu ko bachche nahi horaha kya?" or "Aapki bahu itna tight jeans kyu pehenti hai?" etc etc. Screw them I tell you!

    Poor Prakash though :P

    Lost a tooth? How how how? Take care and eat some ice cream :)

  16. People gain wisdom when their wisdom teeth make formal appearances in their mouth cavity. Here, I see an exceptional case where wisdom struck when tooth was struck down. Pray, did these Log take away your tooth? :P

  25. Red darling,

    After I read this post of yours I was compelled to log in on my computer and leave a comment. Such a beautifully written post.

    Now as to why I did not follow up with my questions on IPC. I am very lost with my other 18 subjects. I will email you when I read forensic again. Please do not take this act as being irresponsible and unappreciative of your help. I am really just extremely lost.

    Best,

    This is the only difference between gossip and facebook. People make fun of others' non-faults while gossiping, and they glamorize their own non-good things on facebook.

  46. If we look a little deep, all our problems stems from the fact "what will people say"
    Now lets hear that long / short story of the lost tooth.

    ReplyDelete
  47. i always want to be the first one to read each one of your blogs. but that never happens :/
    such a wonderful tale this molay. i want to tell such a tale to my kids. to not think of any of the of the society goddam irritating bloody godforsaken piece of waste of thu human society-the LOG which comprises pretty much rest of it leaving your parents and a few here and there. we live in such a hypocritic world. parents bring us up saying you should do what your heart says, but then when it comes to taking any sort of decisions they are like ohhh..no no no..think what the vermas or the sharmas or the menons or the bla bla bla will think. areyyyyy..bhad mae jaaye verma and company.who are they to me that i should do stuff to please them. you know i call myself very modern and on my own and all that..but i still can't get to admit to amma appa that i drink. my hubby has no issues whatsover of me making a total drama queen of myself after a drunken binge. but i dont think i will ever have the guts to say that to my parents. but i dont want to have this equation with my kids. i want to have a drink or two with them when they are of legal age and still make a drama queen of myself after a binge. sigh...hopefully this new generation of parents(us) will be different...in a good way.
    you are awesoem and the header of your blog is super awesome molay.
    Cheers only.
