thanks to the drunkards.

Dear drunkards X and Y,

I am unsure whether you remember, but on the night of Jan 29, 2010 around 23:45 at tea-board, we were seated at adjacent tables. I realized your presence when I smelled something. I saw X smoking and asked you to go out of tea-board. X said nothing, but Y started arguing — in a ‘slow speed’. The speed made me realize that you both were drunk.

I had seen both of you around, hence I knew you were students. Incidentally, I was accompanied by a Students’ Council’s Steering Committee member who immediately gave a call to the SC Chairman, who suggested him to ask you to leave the place as an SC member.

Yours fortunately, you were accompanied by one of your friends Z who was not drunk and who understood the gravity of the situation and took you out of tea-board, since you were not even able to stand without support. The situation ended without much trouble.

In retrospective, I feel scared that the issue could have easily taken a serious turn at any point. I personally like drunkards — I feel they are the only people whose words could be trusted. Additionally, I feel compassionate towards them — because according to me, they drink for not being happy with themselves. However, had Z been not there with you, we would have called the SC Chairman and the event would have taken a formal turn. Had I been not accompanied by the SC Steering Committee member, I would have asked the security guards to remove you from tea-board and would have been forced to lodge a complaint. Worse, had I not remembered to call the security guards, I would have dialled 100 on my mobile. Having a criminal record is one of the worst things to happen in anybody’s life — unless you want to become a politician. The record follows you till your grave and life gets miserable at every step.

I myself would have felt bad for being responsible to affect your future. I am thankful to you and Z for not letting this sensitive matter go out of hands. Drinking and smoking are your private matters, and I don’t want to preach you to stop it. But I would like to suggest you to be a bit more careful in public places, because, if something happens, you will always find yourself in minority.

May God bless you.

    Hi rupesh

    I understand that whatever you write here is your opinion and you are entitled to it, here are some of mine (not meant to offend anyone)

    Seriously, do you think people drink because they are not happy with themselves? πŸ™‚

    Besides, I didn’t follow why you are thanking the drunkards? πŸ˜‰ you should be thanking the non-drunkard!

    Moreover, I totally agree that if people must drink they might as well confine themselves to their personal space, but you really think you would have been forced to dial 100 for THIS!!


    p.s. just for laughs: i am tickled by imagining this entire scene in tea board.. none-the-less i cant stop this song playing in the background of my mind… nasha sharab mein hota to naachti botle πŸ™‚

    Manjari, thanks for sharing your opinion.

    Sometimes, it is simply the proximity or easyness of a not-so-good solution that receives priority over better solutions. I think there was a non-zero probability of me dialing 100 had things gone beyond control. And with the sensitivity of the situation, I would not dismiss the possibility of a quarrel. Security guards were 200 meter away, and the number 100 was at a distance of six mobile button clicks (two to unlock, one to call). I generally follow common sense — but you never know. I should not believe a person who writes bhOndOO stories.

    πŸ™‚ mm i can see where technology might be driving us.. we are surely become lazy πŸ˜‰ and we might be giving up on common sense, dont you think, which is not so common anyway πŸ˜‰
    none-the-less I just wanted to urge you not to be so harsh to the poor drunkards.. most of them are happy people rupesh (ahmmm another song come to mind.. Jo na piye woh kya jaane peeten hain kyun hum diwaane yaar.. ) πŸ™‚

    p.s. bhOndOO is a star and slights against ‘it’ shall not be tolerated!
