SARCASTIC RESPONSES TO UNSOLICITED ADVICE.

Hi Friends,

Everyday we come across people who dish out unsolicited advice, expecting us to follow them, when they have no idea on what we are going through. These are some sarcastic responses to unwanted lecture, available free of cost.

Scenario 1

Person A: “You know, you should really try this new diet I’m on. It’s amazing!”

You: “Oh, thank you for the unsolicited diet advice! Because clearly, you’re the epitome of perfect nutrition and have all the answers. I’ll make sure to drop everything and follow your miraculous diet plan. How could I have survived without your invaluable wisdom?”

Person B: “You should totally break up with your significant other. Trust me, I know what’s best for your relationship.”

You: “Oh, wow! I had no idea you were the official ambassador of relationship advice. How lucky am I to have stumbled upon your divine wisdom? Please, enlighten me with more profound insights about my personal life. I can’t wait to throw away my happiness based on your flawless expertise!”

Person C: “Why don’t you just quit your job and pursue your passion? Life’s too short to waste time!”

You: “Thank you, oh wise sage, for enlightening me with your profound knowledge of life’s purpose. I never realized that paying bills and eating were such trivial concerns. I’ll immediately quit my job, become a professional finger painter, and live off rainbows and unicorn hugs. Your advice is truly life-altering!”

Person D: “You should really dress differently. I mean, who wears those colors together?”

You: “Oh, fashion guru extraordinaire, thank you for gracing me with your impeccable taste. How could I have gone through life without your expert opinion on color coordination? I’ll be sure to hire a personal stylist to match my socks with my toothbrush from now on. Because clearly, that’s the key to happiness!”

Person E: “You’re doing it all wrong. Let me show you the proper way to do it.”

You: “Oh, thank you, oh master of all things right and proper! I didn’t realize that I’ve been fumbling through life like a clueless buffoon. Please, bestow upon me your infinite wisdom and reveal the secrets of the universe. I’m eagerly awaiting your divine guidance, O Enlightened One!”

Scenario 2

Person A: “You know, you should really start exercising more. It’s good for your health.”

You: “Oh, thank you, Captain Obvious! I had no idea that exercise is good for me. I’ve just been sitting around waiting for someone like you to enlighten me. Your superhero powers of stating the obvious are truly amazing!”

Person B : “Why don’t you just get over it and move on? Dwelling on the past won’t solve anything.”

You: “Thank you, Wise Guru of Life! Your profound wisdom has opened my eyes to the secret of solving all problems in an instant. I’ll just snap my fingers and magically erase all the pain and challenges from my life. If only I had known your advice earlier, I could have saved years of therapy!”

Person C : “You should stop being so negative all the time. Just think positive thoughts!”

You: “Wow, thank you, Professor of Positivity! I had no idea that the secret to eternal happiness lies in simply thinking positive thoughts. Silly me, wasting my time on personal growth, emotional well-being, and facing life’s challenges. From now on, I’ll just plaster a smile on my face and pretend everything is rainbows and butterflies. What a genius idea!”

Scenario 3

Person A: “You know, you should really try waking up at 5 am every day. It’s the key to success!”

Person B: “Oh, wow, thanks for enlightening me! I never realized the secret to success was simply sleep deprivation. I’ll make sure to set multiple alarms and curse your name every morning.”

Person A: “You should definitely go on a gluten-free diet. It will change your life!”

Person B: “Oh, thank you, oh wise nutrition guru! I had no idea that eliminating bread from my life would magically solve all my problems. I’ll just sit here, munching on my gluten-filled snack and cry, shall I?”

Person A: “You should smile more. It will make you happier.”

Person B: “Wow, you must be a mind reader! I had no idea that the key to eternal happiness lay in the upturned curvature of my lips. I’ll be sure to plaster a smile on my face 24/7, even during dental appointments and funerals.”

Person A: “You should try this new miracle product. It will solve all your problems!”

Person B: “Oh, how could I be so foolish? Of course, a bottle of magical elixir is the answer to all my prayers. I’ll buy ten, just to be safe. Maybe I can even bathe in it and achieve ultimate enlightenment.”

Person A: “You should totally try this new workout routine. It will give you the body of a Greek god!”

You: “Oh, fitness guru, please grace me with your divine wisdom! I had no idea that my mortal exercises were insufficient in achieving the physique of a mythical deity. Thank you for enlightening me with your revolutionary workout routine. I can already envision myself bench-pressing Mount Olympus and doing squats with the weight of Zeus on my shoulders. What a life-changing experience!”

πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

You must be wondering why I am snapping at people these days. Probably, it’s due to stress factor and my heart broken into several pieces by my own family members whereas I got much needed support from great friends like you. Now, my mind is free from toxic thoughts as I am planning for my future.

MONDAY BLUES (53)

Money: The Almighty Deity of the 21st Century!

Photo by Franco on Pexels.com

In today’s modern world, we have discovered the greatest phenomenon known to mankind. It’s not alien life or teleportation devices; it’s something far more captivating and alluring. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the supreme deity that governs our lives, the one and only… money! Yes, that’s right, money has risen to godlike status, and we are all its devout disciples.

Gone are the days when we worshipped ancient gods and goddesses, seeking divine intervention. Who needs God when we have dollar bills and shiny gold coins? Money has become the holy grail, the ultimate purpose of our existence. It has the power to make or break dreams, relationships, and even nations. Move over, heavenly beings – the global economy is where the real action is!

From the moment we take our first breath, society drills into our heads the profound significance of this magical entity. We are told that money can buy happiness, success, and unlimited Wi-Fi data plans. Who needs love and emotional fulfillment when you can have a brand new Lamborghini parked in your driveway? Priorities, people!

In this relentless pursuit of financial bliss, we have created an entire ecosystem that revolves around the worship of money. We have economists who decipher the divine messages hidden within fluctuating stock prices. We have financial advisors who play the role of high priests, offering sacred rituals to appease the money gods. And let’s not forget about those famous billionaires who are elevated to the status of demigods, showered with adoration and media attention.

We have become slaves to the almighty dollar, forsaking our sanity in the process. We chase after promotions, higher salaries, and bigger bank accounts as if they were the keys to eternal salvation. We sacrifice our time, our health, and our relationships at the altar of wealth accumulation. It’s almost as if we believe that St. Peter at the pearly gates will only grant entry to those with a fat bank balance.

But let’s pause for a moment and reflect on the absurdity of it all. Imagine a world where trees magically sprout money instead of leaves, and children play in the streets, tossing bundles of cash instead of playing catch. It sounds like a dystopian comedy sketch, doesn’t it?

We have become so consumed by the pursuit of wealth that we have forgotten the true essence of life. We’ve turned into money-hungry zombies, mindlessly chasing after the next paycheck or investment opportunity. Our conversations revolve around the size of our portfolios, rather than the wonders of the universe or the joy of human connection.

Let’s reclaim our humanity, my fellow disciples of the almighty dollar! Let’s remember that money is just a means to an end, not the end itself. It’s time to put the absurdity in perspective and find a balance between financial stability and the things that truly matter – love, laughter, and the occasional Netflix binge.

Remember, my friends, life is too short to be spent counting pennies. And if you find yourself in need of a good chuckle, just remember that the best things in life are free – like oxygen, laughter, and the joy of reading satirical articles like this one. Stay sane, stay human, and keep those dollar bills in their proper place.

Remember that money is made for man and not vice-versa. You must be wondering why I have been writing about the love for money for two days in a row. Someone very close to me pointed out that I was completely useless because I failed to get a bank job and wasted my life on writing stories and blogs and not earning a single penny. He implied that I am a financial burden on my mother and brother. Even at his old age, he has been busy making money without wasting a single moment. According to him, people who are financial burden like me should not even exist. He didn’t say it explicitly but this is what I understood from his speech. It’s sad and pathetic that people bargain with vegetable vendors and street hawkers but open their wallets and gladly shell out bundles of notes to the poor waiters in five-star hotels and those working in shopping malls.

I am grateful to God for giving me wonderful human beings in the form of blogger friends who have always encouraged me with their kind, loving words. In my opinion, dear friends, you are my real wealth besides my mom, brother and daughter.

TO WRITE OR NOT TO WRITE.

MY THOUGHTS.

Photo by Miguel u00c1. Padriu00f1u00e1n on Pexels

Hi Friends,

Have you read comic books in your childhood? I am sure most of us did. There would be bubbles to express the dialogues or thoughts of various characters. As a kid, I viewed the thought bubbles as farting by brain in the form of ridiculous ideas. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

I remember a dialogue from my favorite comedy sitcom ” Hum Paanch” in the 90s. A hilarious character called Sweety who’s considered as dumb ( foolish) seems to be lost in a thought when her elder sister, Meenakshi, asks her what she’s thinking about. Sweety replies, “I am thinking of what to think.” πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€.

I came to a realization after writing one of my earlier posts regarding artificial intelligence. Some individuals have also turned artificial, so artificiality isn’t limited to intelligence. They are manufactured in every way, including their character, feelings, smiles, and goals. Some people are willing to put up with your insults if you are wealthy and always invite you to every family occasion. However, if you come from a typical middle-class family or are relegated to living in poverty, they no longer acknowledge of your existence in their lives, out of fear that you could ask for financial aid.

As I played Candy Crush in my mom’s mobile, I had another thought. I feel that Life is like a game of Candy crush where you might achieve success or failure. If you succeed, you proceed to the next level but if you fail, you keep trying to overcome those obstacles and move on to the next level and when this happens, you would feel an euphoria that is completely different from the happiness you derive from your success in the first attempt itself.

I am reminded of a song here.

This song means :

What’s there to think about?

Let’s face the situation as it comes.

Don’t lose your present ( today) for the uncertain tomorrow.

You won’t get to relive this moment again tomorrow.

What’s there to think about?

Let’s face the situation as it comes.

Whatever is bound to happen will happen.

There’s no use of overthinking about it.

Today, We stay together with our family.

There’s no greater happiness than this.

Today, We stay together with our family.

No one knows when we might get separated.

What’s there to think about?

Let’s face the situation as it comes.

Don’t lose your present ( today) for the uncertain tomorrow.

You won’t get to relive this moment again tomorrow.

EMPLOYMENT FOR YOUTH.

MY VIEWS

Photo by Anna Shvets on Pexels.com

Introduction

Imagine you have just graduated from university, with your degree in hand and a heart full of hope and dreams for your future. You have spent the last few years preparing for this moment, studying hard and learning everything you can to prepare yourself for the workforce. But as you start to look for jobs, you quickly realize that most of the opportunities available require years of work experience. You feel discouraged and wonder what the future holds for you and other fresh graduates in a job market that seems to value experience over potential.

The Importance of Work Experience

It is no secret that work experience is highly valued in the job market. Employers are looking for candidates who have proven themselves in a professional setting, who know how to navigate the workplace and can hit the ground running. But this emphasis on work experience can be incredibly frustrating for fresh graduates who are just starting out.

One of the main reasons why employers prefer candidates with work experience is that it reduces the risk of hiring someone who may not be able to perform well in the role. Experienced candidates have a track record of success and can provide references to vouch for their skills and abilities. This can be reassuring for employers who want to minimize the risk of making a bad hire.

However, this focus on work experience can be short-sighted. It assumes that all candidates with experience are equally qualified, which is not always the case. Some candidates may have years of experience but lack the necessary skills or qualities to excel in a particular role. On the other hand, fresh graduates may have limited experience but possess a strong work ethic, a willingness to learn, and the potential to grow and succeed in the job.

The Impact of the Reservation System

In many countries, there is also the added challenge of the reservation system, which can make it even more difficult for deserving candidates to secure a job. The reservation system is designed to provide opportunities for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds, such as those from low-income families or marginalized communities.

While the reservation system is intended to be a positive step towards greater equity and social justice, it can also create a situation where candidates who are more qualified and experienced are overlooked in favor of those who meet the criteria for the reservation. This can be demoralizing for candidates who have worked hard to build their skills and experience, only to be passed over for someone who may not have the same level of qualifications but fits the criteria for the reservation system.

Of course, it is important to acknowledge that the reservation system has helped many individuals who would otherwise not have had access to the same opportunities. However, it is also important to consider the unintended consequences of the system and work towards finding a balance that ensures fairness for all candidates.

Conclusion

In conclusion, the focus on work experience in the job market can be a significant barrier for fresh graduates who are just starting out. While experience is important, it is not the only factor that should be considered when evaluating potential candidates. Employers should also look at a candidate’s potential, work ethic, and willingness to learn and grow.

Additionally, the reservation system can also create challenges for deserving candidates who may be overlooked in favor of those who meet the criteria for the system. While it is important to provide opportunities for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds, it is also important to ensure that all candidates are evaluated fairly based on their qualifications and potential.

Ultimately, the job market should be a place where all candidates have an equal opportunity to succeed and pursue their dreams, regardless of their background or level of experience. By working towards greater equity and fairness in hiring practices, we can create a more just and inclusive job market for all.

MONDAY BLUES (50)

WHERE’S THE LOGIc

Hi Friends,

Due to personal reasons, I am unable to post blogs as often as I did. But today, I wish to share some funny quotes by my brother and my daughter.

Photo by emre keshavarz on Pexels.com

A Quote by my brother, Anant.

People claim to have 6th sense…
Fall in love with complete nonsense…
By strangling their common sense…
And making their stupidity very intense…

Anant.

Currently, we are enjoying our Vacation in Muscat. A couple of days ago, I went for an evening walk with my mother and daughter, when she ( my daughter) said, ” See, Mom! There are so many stray cats around here. That’s why this place is called Mus-cat.” πŸ˜œπŸ˜œπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

And now, here’s something on how logic died at the hands of the producers of TV serials and movies.

There’s a Daily Soap in Tamil which has been airing on a regional channel for more than two years. The story is about a man who’s forced to marry a dark complexioned girl but has an extramarital affair with another woman whom he marries. I don’t now how he achieved this feat without divorcing his first wife. Now, his second wife has been pregnant for more than a year and a half. Wow! The makers of this serial have brutally murdered science and logic.

I didn’t know that a woman could take 18 months to deliver a single baby. Now, in another TV series, the characters are confused whether they are good or bad. Occasionally, they are hatching conspiracies or playing a victim card. I kindly request the producers of these serials not to give us a migraine with their stupid shows that completely murder logic.

Similarly, a hero in a typical Tamil movie , would take on 15 goons and would send them flying all over with his single punch or kick. And as a meme says, can you imagine the hero of the movie hiding behind a bicycle to dodge a bullet? The villain would miss his target but the hero kills him with a single shot to his forehead.

Well, I can’t help but laugh as I thought of an imaginary obituary to the death of logic.

” I am deeply saddened to inform you that Logic, an important of our brain, passed away more than 15 years ago when TV shows made their first appearance. Common sense and thinking capacity also left for their heavenly abode to join logic. Hope that they have left their traces behind in people so that they are not completely extinct. Bereaved by a concerned citizen.”

LAUGHTER TUESDAYS (54)

MY QUIRKY THOUGHTS

Photo by Ksenia Chernaya on Pexels.com

Good evening friends,

I want to share some quirky thoughts of mine. You might find me crazy but it’s this craziness that helps me to survive a hostile atmosphere. Let’s begin.

Photo by Ihsan Adityawarman on Pexels.com

Hey Friends!

Is your footwear old and worn out? Are you trying to buy a new pair at a reasonable rate? Would you believe me if I tell you that there’s a footwear exchange offer going on ? And you don’t have to pay anything. Yes, you heard me right. You can get a new pair free of cost. I will tell you how to avail of this offer:

Visit any temple, or a place of worship. Leave your footwear and choose a pair that’s similar to your old one. Wear it and quietly leave. ( I am only joking). This is what’s happening in my locality. My husband lost a couple of shoes exactly in the same way. He visited Hanuman Temple and some lunatic specializing in footwear stealing, did a runner with a brand new pair of shoes. It’s disgusting. How can anyone stoop so low to steal footwear?

These days, I am really worried about thieving rascals in my locality because they don’t even spare a garbage bin. Given an opportunity, they might even steal your undergarments.

Now, let’s change the topic from footwear stealing to something else.

You might have heard about the famous saying, ” He who digs a pit for others, falls into it, himself.” This is usually true, except, when it’s done by the municipalities to provide for a new water or drainage connection or manholes. In this case, it’s the poor public falling into the hole, if the work is unsupervised and left unattended.

Let’s talk about my favorite topic, matrimonial sites. The potential brides and grooms are projected like human commodities with terms and conditions. I know someone was taken for a ride as he chose a witch who wore several layers of makeup to look beautiful. Turned out that she was older than him and had a list of endless demands. Today, he’s paying a heavy price to secure his freedom.

It’s better if they also provide the expiry date for the marriage. ( Just Kidding 😜😜😜).

Marriages are certainly not made in heaven. If it was the case, then all the marriages would have lasted forever until the couples’ last breath. This kind of faulty product is only done on the earth.

Now, I would like to ask you a question.

What’s the best kind of business that can be done by everyone without any investment?

Hmm… Give up? The answer is minding one’s own business. Unfortunately, we don’t do it and expect it from the others. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ˜‰.

Last but not the least, a murder is perfectly legal and everyone is allowed to commit this type of murder. Believe me, if you do it, you will be rewarded with internal peace and eternal happiness. Do you think I have lost my mind? No, I am perfectly sane. The murder isn’t of any human or any living creature. I am talking about the murder of our inner vices like ego, pride, jealousy, lust, greed, anger, and hatred. If you kill these, there wouldn’t be any crime taking place anywhere in the world.

Hope you liked my crazy thoughts.

CUTE ANIMALS AND MY QUIRKY THOUGHTS.

Today, I am feeling a bit mischievous. I want to share some cute pics of animals courtesy Glance.com and my sudden quirky thoughts to question my sanity today.

Glance.com . A cute monkey enjoying his fruit. ‘ Hmm…Delicious.’
Eating nuts as the squirrel watches the snowfall and the world is going nuts.
Dear Santa, Give me plenty of bones with meat attached to it.
What a rare sight! Wait…don’t get any ideas…we are only taking the pics for Facebook and Instagram.

That was fun, wasn’t it? Now let me go ahead with my funny musings.

There are plenty of blogs that deal with how to do articles. I wonder how the blogs would be if there were how to do articles like:

  1. How to mind our own business? ( No takers for this niche because it’s Mission Impossible Forever) Thanks to the social media and news channels airing sensational news everyday, it’s impossible to ignore anything.
  2. How to influence people to part with their money? ( Advertising agencies are experts in this field plus convincing photos of celebrities doing charity on Facebook and Instagram will do wonders.)
  3. How to write a book on lame excuses that appear to be quite convincing? ( I am not going to spill the secret but one of the common excuse is killing your already dead relative or citing poor health.) ( Just joking)
  4. How to look gorgeous without applying makeup? ( No comments).
  5. How to pass your exams without studying? ( Only due to Covid-19 and rising cases of Omicron)

How about some funny questions and snarky answers?

Question 1. What is a man’s best friend?

Answer. Smartphone ( Instead of a book or a dog)

Question 2. Explain the role of inflation in a country’s development.

Answer: I don’t know because I never watched that movie but I can explain the role of Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator. ( Bound to get zero in exams)

Question 3: Why do people keep checking their phones quite frequently?

Answer: To see how many likes and followers they got on their social media posts. The very purpose of mobiles for mainly talking and texting is quietly fading away.

That’s all for now, dear friends. This post is meant purely for fun and not intended to hurt anyone. Hope you liked it. These thoughts have bugged me sometimes. So, I decided to share it with you.

Thank you so much for taking your precious time to visit my website. Hope you enjoyed reading my blogs. 😊😊

MY JOURNEY WITH BOOKS ( CONTINUEs FROM GROWING Up WITH FASCINATING BOOKS)

The Naughtiest Girl Is A Monitor has always been one of my favorites. The Protagonist, Elizabeth Allen, is very naughty and is sent to Whyteleafe Boarding School for rectifying her behavior. She has her share of adventures after being made a monitor. I found it very enthralling and enjoyable. The highlight of this book is how Elizabeth undergoes drastic transformation.

Enid Blyton still continues to rule the hearts of young readers all over the world. She has beautifully presented the concept of adventures in Boarding School for Children. Darrell Rivers is the heroine ( protagonist) who experiences thrilling adventures. The author got inspired by her daughter’s boarding school, Benenden School for this series.

I moved on to the Children’s classic literature with the following books.

An adorable classic

This book captivated my heart with its beautiful story and vivid imagination. It’s awesome and definitely every child should read it. It’s about a twelve-year-old girl, Katy Carr, who is a tomboy and loves to dominate her siblings. An unfortunate accident leaves her invalid and she goes through a myriad of emotions. Her character undergoes a complete transformation after seeing her cousin Helen. Amazing! ‘What Katy Did’ holds a special place in my heart. Do read this book to know what causes Katy to change her attitude.

A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett moved me to tears. I loved it so much that I must have re-read it numerous times. What a brilliant story! It has a universal appeal even now. The story is about Sara Crewe who joins the boarding school headed by Ms.Minchin. Her father dies tragically after his business failure. She is reduced to poverty and ill treated by Ms.Minchin. She accepts her fate and starts living in a world of imagination thinking that she is still a princess. Little does she know, what fate has in store for her. The story goes through dramatic turns to keep the readers engrossed. A must read book for children.

It’s a highly emotional, inspirational, and a thrilling story about three children, Roberta aka Bobby, Phyllis and Peter who are forced to leave their magnificent house in London and move on to live a life of poverty with their mother in a small cottage in the countryside after their father gets arrested on espionage charges. They make it a point to visit the railway station daily and befriend a gentleman who regularly commutes by 9.15 train. Their fortune is going to change for sure. The story becomes more interesting with plenty of surprises. I would give it a 10/10 perfect score.

My teenage drew me closer to the following books.

I madly fell in love with the American teenage sleuth Nancy Drew, her friends, Bess and George, Nancy’s father Carson Drew, her housekeeper Hannah Gruen, and boyfriend Ned Nickerson. Wow! I enjoyed reading every adventure. I would forget myself and imagine that I was in River Heights, solving cases with her.

I was crazy about The Hardy Boys adventures. I loved Frank and Joe Hardy. Their friend, Chet Morton, was so cute. I have finished reading all the books in this series.

The adolescent stage found me turning pages of some of the wonderful works of English Literature by none other than the greatest poet and playwright of his time, William Shakespeare.

An unforgettable, outstanding classic.

I was very much impressed with this book. It’s characters were so realistic that I couldn’t help but admire the great legend’s penmanship. Antonio helps his friend Bassonio to seek Portia’s hand in marriage by getting loan from Shylock, the bride’s father, who demands a pound of flesh from Antonio in case of delay in repayment. Would Antonio be saved or perished? A must read for the lovers of English literature.

I liked the story because I could relate the events to the practical life. Iago, a soldier, is furious about being overlooked for promotion by Othello, The General and The Moor of Venice. He plots Othello’s downfall by poisoning his mind about his wife Desdemona’s infidelity. Othello kills her and regrets his hasty action. The play ends with Othello’s suicide.

I started Sidney Sheldon and Robin Cook’s books while I was in college. I found Sidney Sheldon’s books very exciting as it is overloaded with super suspense and plenty of twists and thrills with unexpected climaxes. There are erotic scenes to add to the romance.

This book is about Tracy Whitney’s tryst with law after losing her mother Doris to a fraud committed by Joe Romano. She is falsely accused of a crime that she never committed. How will she prove her innocence and seek revenge? Too good to be missed.

A hot favorite of all

I got introduced to the Magical world of Hogwarts featuring Harry Potter, his friends, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, and Professors Snape, McGonagall, Dumbledore and his main nemesis Lord Voldemort, followed by Draco Malfoy and his cronies, Crabbe and Goyle. I have read each book at least twice. I adore Harry Potter series and I am an ardent fan of Ms. J.K. Rowling.

That’s all for now, folks. I will continue about my book reading trend in my upcoming blogs

Laughing at women.

Photo by Andrea Piacquadio on Pexels.com

I get irked up when I read jokes or watch serials which portrays women as wily creatures or incarnation of the devil. I hate to admit that housewives themselves enjoy watching these serials.

I have stopped watching TV serials ages ago. I enjoy reading books or fiddling with my mobile. Most of the husband-wife jokes, especially, in Hindi feature husband as the hero and wife as a villain getting insulted by ‘hero’. A big ha-ha.

I wish the script writers of TV serials could come up with novel ideas of their own and come up with serials that are worth watching. I have also observed that if a daily soap manages to get a high TRP, dozens of serials with a similar theme follow suit. I find it quite irritating.

I just want to say that no one is perfect in this world. It’s wrong to paint an evil picture of one gender in favor of the other. All of us have good qualities with certain flaws. We should learn to appreciate each other’s virtues and not dwell upon criticizing others or finding fault with each other.
