Beautiful Girls Can Get Away With Murder!

Well, this post is about nothing so extreme. The spectacular title is just to catch your attention! This is just about two friends and their, umm.. shall we say... traits? (No, I am not giving out any names. So, don't bother.)

Ok, first one. There is this friend who sounds perpetually sleepy. You call her up and you get a sleepy drone, "Haaaiiii Swaaameeee. Haaoowww aaare youuuu?" And its the middle of the day. She's not sleepy. You can tell if you are with her that she's not sleepy. That's just how she talks sometimes. But.. she's beautiful. So, who am I to complain?

Then there is this friend who loves to revel in melancholy. Sad movies are her favorites. And she firmly believes in "हैं सब से मधुर वो गीत जिन्हें हम दर्द के सुर में गाते हैं" (for all you devanagari challanged people: Hain sab se madhur woh geet jinhe hum dard ke sur mein gaate hain). And she loves the melancholic poetry of Bahadur Shah Zafar. So, naturally she was devastated to find out that "लगता नहीं है दिल मेरा उजड़े दयार में" (Lagta nahin hai dil mera ujade dayaar mein), and "न किसी की आँख का नूर हूँ"(Na kisi ki aankh ka noor hoon) were not written, as popularly believed, by Bahadur Shah Zafar.

You ask, "Why should she be upset about that?" Well, because her melancholic hero is suddenly not so melancholic any more!

You also ask, "Is she beautiful?" Well, she claims to be a man. So, she can't be labeled as beautiful or not beautiful. Unless she wants to be called a "pretty boy".

Baat karni mujhe mushkil kabhi aisi toh na thi..
My sympathies to your melancholic lad/lassie..
The poor wretch exists in a humorless state,
she dwells in the gloom of exiled poets out of date.
Ask her to watch the marx brothers for a change,
or bheja-fry, pushpak, billy crystal..give her a range.
She can plant trees,do some charity work for the homeless,
or collect shells on the beach or study nature i guess..
she could learn classical music with some friends for fun..
Or just go apple picking in the autumn sun.
Star gazing on a clear night is cool, so is racing a kid in the pool.
Skipping rocks can be an acquired skill,
she can read genetics or Asterix if she has time to kill.
Ms. melancholia has some serious issues to resolve,
which i am sure some group tickling will solve.
Heck, its not nice to advise..
If one does not lead by example,
but these are what i do if i have grief to trample.

P.S.
I am sorry you had to suffer,
my first line by that loser bloke Zafar.

Beauty has its price and also its advantages! For some reason I feel that I know this second melancholic person! Am not sure whether my guess is right! But you are damn right! So what, they are beautiful:)
