Encounter with Tahir Shah!

The first encounter I had with him(it) was on this very space when a learned fellow blogger and a great friend – Geetashree passed on a popular Tahir Shah video link to me as a comment on one of my posts about my long hair and the perceptions people develop because of their length. And only recently I was being confirmed by  another close blogger friend Sfurti- The Haiku Princess that it was her who had shared the link and also the learned blogger friend Geetashree, in her comments, did mention she did not recall posting such video ( so nice of her ) but I thought she may have forgotten .. Poor me , I realize instead I am suffering from Short Term Memory Loss 😀

 

Happily I clicked the video to listen to the song – The track Being Eye to Eye – The music was catchy , the words were astonishing and senseless and the singer  with his appearance and on-screen gestures kept me stare at the video with a” question mark”  expression . The very first thought was – What is that ?? (No,not the song but the human like thing which was there in the video.) I was taken aback . Little did I know he is the ‘new kid on the celeb block’ from our loving neighborhood Pakistan. Although the music was catchy but the singer had scared me so much with his peculiarly awkward appearance , deadly dancing skills , meaningless lyrics , desi pronunciation of English words(mind it -its an English song from Tahir Shah)  that I preferred not to know him anymore.

Later , after few weeks , another co-blogger with inspiring wit – Purba Ray mentioned a name Tahir Shah in one of her humour-packed hilarious post and that compelled me to google the name… And guess what ? The peculiar thing reappeared. It was there in my subconscious mind , I suppose , in the list of lifetime shockers.  And then that was it. I heard that song yet again – Eye to Eye by Tahir Shah on YouTube and then saw many other videos on and about him(it) one of which included his interviews.

I was shocked to believe what I was listening to – Inzi Bhai ( cricketer Inzamam Ul Haq from Pakistan) could speak English lot better and could have been hired before the interview to allow the viewers make some sense. I felt inspired suddenly. This thing ( Tahir Shah and not his video 😀 ) it was speaking so confidently and only and precisely ‘his’ God knew and him what he was trying to convey. I learnt.Confidence sells. Thanks to that thing ( Tahir Shah and not his video-mind it) I have started believing myself  and my English with limited vocabulary.  🙂 This was just a tribute to the confidence that Tahir Shah boosted in me . Thank you Tahir !

Here I am sharing the links of the  interview of Tahir Shah which has boosted confidence in me . A must watch both( the video and the interview) , in case , you do not know what is Tahir Shah. If any of you understood what it (Tahir Shah) said in the interview , do leave me the meaning in the comment box.

Our neighbors may surely put him(it) on LoC if their army realizes the potential of it-(Tahir Shah and his English).

Monthly Drawings

This happened day before yesterday! I was cycling aside a Big Mall, nearby my house, when a Skoda Rapid bypassed me and after covering a distance of  about 100 metres , it stopped. And then a man in formals came out and turned back with his arms open and what I could understand he was continuously staring at me with a smiling face. And then .. Oh!! That was an ex-colleague in one of my previous offices.

It was great to see him and during the conversation he declared how he hopped jobs and how his life has changed for good. And it was my turn to give details of my financial state and overall success. While,even he was astonished to see me  looking like a sage with long hair and beard, riding a cycle and he knew I may have sad financial stories to narrate….Well..as I say anticipation is wrong .. most of the times .. here is what happened :

Type Of Co-Bloggers who seldom respond to your posts :)

Type Of IndiBloggers is a previous post of mine about how we bloggers respond to each other .  This post is an analysis of why some bloggers seldom respond to our posts no matter how much we appreciate their posts and express our liking  to actually make our presence felt. 😀  ( you know, the scratching each other’s back,game 😀 )

There are some ‘Attention Seeker Bloggers’ like myself  who get depressed and try to analyse what may be the reason of few co-bloggers never responding to our posts.Well,I’m not alone  😉 .The idea of the post came from a conversation with a co-blogger who raised the same issue. He wishes to remain anonymous on this post. 😀

*Disclaimer: this is purely for fun and making you all my dearest readers and  co-bloggers smile.Assuming yourself as any of the types is your personal choice. The author shall not be held responsible for your assumptions 😀

Sufferings of a long-haired Indian male

I don’t know that well about the West but I’m sure men with long hair is not that big an issue.In India it indeed is(unless you are in a saintly  group enchanting God’s name and in a Saffron or White attire 😉 ). Its about to be 2 years since I had my last hair-cut done. Ok ! Chill!!  🙂

I know its not normal, at least , for an Indian male.In fact, who better than me would know that. Breaking the shackles of Indian society ain’t easy- a dialogue people may love from an Indian female.Right ?

And if you think Indian male can do whatever they like,you are absolutely wrong. With my hair growing below shoulders,I drive unwanted attention everywhere , no matter, I go anywhere or anyone invades my dwelling.

I would love to show what you go through when you break Indian social norms as a male and would love your feedback.

In my next post , I will surely give my reasons of growing long hair and keeping a trim beard  even at the cost of all the pain, I go through,everyday. 🙂
