A eunuch made my day

I was a little low on energy after:

  • a vampire movie (Twilight part 2: slow, but interesting...little too mushy..Ashley Greene should have smiled more often..everytime she was with Robert Pattinson, she looked like she was suppressing a terrible headache inside :-) LOL) last night
  • day-long laptop radiation
  • excessive cell phone usage @ night
  • barely any sleep
  • Bangalore morning traffic and its stressed out, spaced out commuters throwing oodles of stress energy all around
...@ Sony World traffic signal, lights went red, my auto driver (some Mr Khan) and I were cajoled by a eunuch (a daily routine for eunuchs), and routine-wise the auto driver handed her a few coins

...for those who don't know, in India, eunuchs donot have any rights, and hence they have formed a closed community which goes around asking for money...though most of them are happy souls, there are some aggressive souls too...thanks to these aggressive souls, most people do not get into an argument (God forbid!) and dole out some cash...

well, she blessed the auto driver, and next was my turn, I smiled, mentally blessed her, and handed her some cash too...she went all out pulling @ my cheeks (real hard..ouch!) and mouthed in heavy-accentuated Tamil...
"bless you...be happy...well, why dont you grow a moustache..you'll look handsome" ...this went hand in hand with the sign language she used to describe moustache (BIIIIG moustache), and moved on.

Microsoft Paint zindabaad! :-)

Understanding the fact that sporting a big burly moustache makes you a much-sought after guy in south India, I only smiled imagining how I'd look in moustaches. (considering that I am allergic to sporting moustaches)

Of course after she left I wondered at the irony. In a country like India, where communism has spread like a plague in over 400 territories out of 600...will even a single fanatic communist even bother to cry his/her voice hoarse for the right of eunuchs. I am sure, they wont. After all, their warm-blooded agenda's are selective and motivated by thirst for power. Of course they are blind to their own history when communism failed in the Soviet Union, and left so many crores of people dead, and many more in worst living conditions.

I no longer feel anger at our short-sighted FMCG-mentality politicians, and the communists who are misleading simple-hearted gullible youths in naxalism...I only feel compassion.
