This post is dedicated to all those people who have nothing better to do than keep uploading the most ridiculously irritating WhatsApp and facebook jokes, cracking their nutty heads on how heads of states or industries are what they are, despite all their hatred for them. It is dedicated to all those mindless maniacs who keep racking their own aimless brains and wrecking the busier brains of those forced with forwards, regardless of the realization as to how senseless, useless and worthless each such a forward is. I wish, all the time and energy they spend on such forwards, they would rather spend on either burning their calories or earning their tax (which they are supposed to pay but probably don’t, and that is why they are so unbelievably free! :O )
I firmly believe that these idiots are none other than those who cut a joke on themselves the first time when they went and told their parents proudly, how they were ‘outstanding’ (and not how ‘outstanding’ they were, as per the correct grammar but of course, something their broad-chested parents would fail to notice) when actually the teacher had made them stand outside the class. 😐
You cannot deny the fact that Modi, Sonia, Priyanka or Ramdev are, ultimately, to your satisfaction or dissatisfaction (they care a damn, if you’d mind knowing 😛 ) and to the envy of your frustrated jealous mind, extremely successful people. People who rose from being ordinary to becoming more than extraordinary. Will as you may, you still cannot deny that.
Yet, there is no dearth of people who will always be on the lookout for shaming tactics, be it calling Modi a chaiwala, Sonia, a bar attendant or Ramdev, a haajme wala. There are people who are loving to dig out the forgotten, dumped in the cartons of history kind of once in an exasperated wild blue moon maybe or maybe not kind of a suicidal thought by some now-famous actress (tweets by Jajoo about Priyanka Chopra are merely a disgusting example) just because it feels so good to want to depress now happily successful people because once they were so low, they had to look up to everyone.
Yet, these shamers forget that these very people rose from their supposedly menial conditions, situations, statuses and became what they are today ~ successful icons in the world. And who are these shamers? Aren’t they the barking dogs that whine and throw a barking tantrum out of paranoia when they chance upon a huge elephant going its way?
