Change the Name... Mumbai to Dumbbai

The next time I hear a Mumbaikar complain.... I will hit the looser... all of us from Mumbai are loosers... we are back at being the city that "bounces back from the depths of despair"... some spin doctor coined that... and coined that to eclipse that distasteful fact that what we really are is "apathetic"... Worst of all... we fucking believe the spin doctors... we believe that we are indomitable... bring it on... natural disasters, terrorists... we the brave Mumbaikars will prevail... bull shit... the only thing that gets us cowards out of our houses is the stomachs that we have to feed.

Were was the other 60% of "brave" Mumbai when they were needed to make one little contribution that could potentially drive major change. When all one had to do was stand in line and vote. Hello...Where did everyone vanish... the lot of them...

Brave Indeed! the fuck worths could not even brave the sun!!

But wait... for the fuck worths... there is still hope... the spin doctors are at it again... look at the excuses...

1) It was too hot (its fucking Mumbai... its hot and humid all through the fucking year)

2) Summer Holidays - the north Indians went back home (who the fuck thought this up???... the chap is a talent... find him... honor him... kill him!!!)

3) Extended weekend - everyone is out of town (Ya... the streets of Mumbai were empty indeed... who thought of this one???)

4) All politicians are corrupt (and if you don't vote.. you fucking looser... you bet the most corrupt is also the most likely to win... and you share responsibility... fuck worth)


I am ashamed of being a Mumbaikar... I am ashamed of being a part of an indifferent dumb people... I am ashamed of being a Dumbbaikar.. I hate me...

ya...maybe we just think candle light marches are cooler. disgusting. i had friends from all over calling up and saying wat's with you mumbaikars. short term memory loss. woh tab hua, ab bhool jao. chalta hai yaar. time kiske paas hai. apun ko kya and so and and so forth. we really are a sad lot.
that apart...thank you as the mind meanders. while you were reading my blog last night, i was going through yours. and high praise coming from someone who writes so well, and so funny...means a lot. so thank you.
