Funny life, Humour, India, Mumbai, Women

Going round and round

Woman 1 : I got a call for an interview. You think I should go?

W 2 : Why? Who will look after your son when you’ll be at work?

W 3 : I think you should take the job. 

W 4 : Seems like it will rain.

Visibly amused and unwilling to be dragged into this conversation, I move away from the group slightly.

Two days later..

Woman 2 : What happened with your interview?

W 1 : I didn’t take the job. The boss was a pervert.

W 3 : Working women have to go through so much I tell you! 

W 4 : You should’ve found out about the company first.

I stand there listening this time. 

“What exactly were these women trying to discuss on?” I wonder.

  1. seems they forgot to discuss abt weather šŸ˜‰

    1. Ha ha! I didn’t know why it began in the first place. Why ask anyone when you’re yourself undecided? As you noticed the reactions weren’t very helpful. ????

      1. just some casual talk.. could be..

        1. As far as I could make out it wasn’t casual. This lady had heated arguments about it even when she had no clue about the company she was interviewing for. Others simply talked and talked. In the end it was all for nothing! ????

          1. is it…

          2. Yes. She assumed the job was hers when all she got was a call. No one had to do anything with it. They talked and felt important. ????

    2. And forgot to take umbrella šŸ˜‰

      1. ????????????????

      2. hi.. re…

        1. You forgot “kha” šŸ˜›

          1. Hahaha…kha is assumed for us. That’s all we do. ????

          2. Yep, re kha or kha re, Tu missal pav kha re šŸ˜›

          3. I love missal pav!! Now I feel like eating. ???? Kha re…had breakfast?

          4. Nope, I am planning to have a brunch instead of breakfast. What about you?
            Hey Varsha, do you speak marathi at home?

          5. No. I mean I know Marathi very well but my mother tongue is Marwari. We speak Hindi at home. I had chapati but am still hungry.

          6. Oh.. My mother tongue is konkani, very similar to marathi. šŸ™‚

          7. Oh yes, but the accent is slightly difficult to pick up easily. I have konkani friends and its hard for me to make out what they say, unless it is slow for my sake. ā˜ŗ

          8. Depends on the dialects šŸ™‚ there are couple of dialects in konkani, some are easy to follow. Konkani people from kochi speak something that sounds more like Malayalam than konkani. So, it depends on area šŸ™‚

          9. Hmmm…I guess. Anyways every 100 kms the dialect changes. I kind of like it. Loads of jokes around about Nagpur Pune or even Satara Marathi dialects and speaking habits. ????

          10. True, same with kannada. I think it’s the same with all languages šŸ™‚

          11. Hmm true. Area does have some bearing on a language. Along state borders the languages are somehow gelled, then again due to immigration the original language faces local influence to a large extent.

          12. you dont like to be called with all the alphabets, right..?

          13. All alphabets as in a to z? šŸ˜›

          14. nope.. ahker

          15. Sounds better than rekha šŸ˜€
            So should I call you alihka šŸ˜›

          16. ha ha.. i too liked alihka…

          17. Wow…our creativity has no bounds! ????????

          18. yes…ahsrav????????

          19. Yes! ????????????

  2. I have seen ladies in my aerobics class discuss benefits of eating kollam rice. Instead of exercising these ladies sat on the floor and had a long discussion about food and it ended with “I ate biryani this Sunday”. šŸ˜›

    1. ????????????????
      In our power yoga session we discussed everything from Salman Khan to the aroma of missal being cooked downstairs to our trainer’s uncle and his fitness regime. Women can talk about anything. Period! ????

        1. But seriously, that is vain, I know. This discussion seemed forced and misplaced. Does anyone really care about what we should do? Even if they do should it matter to us? This is supposed to be talked about in our immediate family, I think.

          1. Yes. Nobody cares. Either way, people talk. But it’s funny how the discussion went from job to weather šŸ˜‰

          2. Yes! And she suggested she find out about the company when all was said and done. ????????

          3. Haha, looks like her rain predictions weren’t true so she changed topic šŸ˜›

          4. Hahaha. Yes probably. Its funny. It if rains…they complain it rained. If it doesn’t…they complain it didn’t. If nothing else there’s always some ‘did you hear about this…?’ line. ????????

          5. Khare in hindi means salty…and you are sweet to talk to…and have a spicy sense of humour. I’m rechristening you now. You are SAS…sugar and spice. ????????????????

          6. Sugar and spice makes everything nice šŸ˜›

          7. Oh yes, it does!! ????????????

          8. But if I am very sweet, people who talk to me are sure to get diabetes šŸ˜›

          9. Hahaha. In that case advise them to keep insulin shots handy. ????????????????

          10. Hahaha šŸ˜›

          11. ????????????

          12. Hey what’s your twitter handle? Want to share your Vijayanagar post.

          13. I am not on twitter šŸ˜›
            You can share it or reblog it, I don’t mind šŸ™‚

          14. Oh! Will reblog then. ????

  3. The weather was probably good the second day .. no one mentioned..

    1. Haha…yes probably. ????????

  4. Interesting to read šŸ™‚ One thing you notice people who are able to get involved in mumbo jumbo talks wold hardly suffer from anxiety/depression . Its a good outlet it seems so sometimes i too practice it !! šŸ™‚

    1. Haha. Mumbo jumbo talks. Nice way to put it. ????????
      In such talks I’m mostly the listener. Brings a smile on my face. Like this time. ????

      1. I am too mostly a lister…just to make sure i have this special skill i sometime make effort doing it šŸ™‚

        1. Haha. The best part is you need no skill. Not with women atleast. You just shoot a teer in the air and they will take it from there. ????

          1. And i love this multi topic conversation between us which is happening now at your different posts…like a gujarati thali šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚

          2. Haha. That’s the flavour of India too na….so we know how to enjoy it. :):)
            I love Gujrati thali. In fact I love Gujrati food, only apart from Kadi. I like the khatti kadi that we make. šŸ™‚

          3. This chhass (buttermilk) is a compulsory ingredient and kichdi is must part of dinner (unlike ours where we have khichdi alone when we have it) and khichdi is not considered an insipid food but a delicacy and prepared in such a tasty manner as well šŸ™‚

          4. Oh yes. And the way they make chaas is very different. It tastes very good.
            In our home we have kadi or dahi….achar and papad with khichdi.

          5. Marwari food is quite spicy , no?

          6. Sort of. Achar and papad are a must in a meal. Although I don’t eat papad and have achar sparingly.
            My mother tried her best to make me like typical Marwari dishes, but I became a khichdi lover of sorts. I love Dal Bati and Gatte ki sabzi though. ????

          7. Gatte (those besan cubes ) i could never bring myself to enjoy šŸ™‚

          8. I love them!! A loves them too. A Jr, no! ????
            Mom made them very tasty. She made them for me every time I went home. I try, but can’t make them taste that good.

          9. ????????

          10. Gujarati has preference for sweet things…even daal is a bit sweet..but gradually you will like it šŸ™‚

          11. I don’t like sweet much. Once in a blue moon I get the craving, but that’s it. I like khatti dal. ????
            One of my Gujju friends has invited us over to her place. I told her beforehand, Dhokla khilayegi to aaungi. ???????? She promised she will. ā˜ŗā˜ŗ

          12. But its much better than searching for topics to speak to as it happens when we are with somebody who answers in only hmm or huh..:)

          13. Ya. If I do that hmm thing people think I’m sick. ????

          14. hahaha

          15. ????????????????
