Blemished For Nothing

Once The Purple Frog met a very beautiful, successful Finance Girl who was scared as hell of her mum and dad to live a good personal life of her choice…Also, she constantly lived in the guilt of the reputation her marital status – single at 33 – brought them.

She tried to always justify all their complaints with a smile and hid all her desires by believing at least she gets food cooked by someone else and doesn’t have to enter the kitchen. Lol. She eventually earned a good reputation at large for being such an understanding child to her parents and an independent, single woman waiting for the right man to happen.

At the same place

There was another pretty girl, pretty angry too (stress-blemished), often mocked for her man-like demeanour and for not taking it easy on certain subjects. She had not given in. Denied the life she was offered and seemed to battle it out. Often by stating what was on her mind and trying to do what she deemed fit for herself.

The Finance Girl led a life of great reputation, doing a lot of things in the hiding but never tried to take a stand for what she desired. On the other hand, the other girl was labelled a rebel because she did what she wanted. As a result, her life wasn’t pretty anymore and she was losing the coyness and the sweetness of the girly kind with which she too started her life.

In fact, situations became extra-harsh for her on most occasions because she put up a bold stand in necessary situations and as a result, people expected boldness from her where it wasn’t even required to struggle.

Without realising, her life turned into this battle. From long hair to cropped hair, she was questioned for even simpler things and without even realising she was called a Fierce Feminist. The real joys no more remained and her life became harder.

However, eventually, when one looked around her,

She had paved way for many to feel the real joys. She opened the way. She filled the gaps that contradictory growth areas create. She brought the term modern to life in mindsets. Often people find it easy to live modernity through costly gold-rimmed phones and new cuisines and recipes.  She brought honesty to the fore.  All that was honestly normal for a human to do…

When someone criticised the Feminist Girl for her blemishes and manliness or nothing sexy / appealing about her to The Purple Frog, all it had to say was…she took the burns of the fire that caused the light in which you bask now…

However, The Purple Frog always feels claustrophobic (may be the reaction should be indifference or patience) in the presence of those who misguide the world. If they are doing it in the hiding, they almost cheat mankind by denying what’s natural to humans… which people you choose and live with is a choice you make. But underplaying or hiding it is encouraging other humans to live in denial and it doesn’t in any way, pave way for a candid co-existence.

A blanket in the making…The colours and size make it ideal to gift it to a couple expecting twins. But, your writer here is petty that way. The blanket is turning out so soft and cosy that for at least one winter, this blanket is not stepping out for circulation. One winter it shall warm the body here…

And if you’re thinking about the last piece that was in the making, it’s done and happily in use.

Pet Woes – Contd.

Well, the incidents of the previous post repeated exactly the same way, this time by the so-believed ‘superior gender’ and higher social rank holders with the claim to fame being talking about society welfare apart from ageing at the same residence and workstation for several years.  Obviously, not to forget the number of years spent on the planet – at least 20-30 more years. So the underlying intention…do as we say.

Now The Purple Frog thinks things have gotten personal here.

Exactly how it gets in situations where some egoist grown-ups expect just a simple bow-now or request-as-a-favor-what-we-know-is-your-basic-right.

Why The Purple Frog thinks so

A few minutes after the entire repeat episode – ‘Our-Shit-Doesn’t-Stink’, ‘Wild Scary Stray’s Shit Doesn’t Stink’, ‘Our Friend’s Pet’s Shit Doesn’t Stink’…But you who looks new and unruly through our perception lenses ‘Your pet’s shit stinks foul’ – the friend’s pet and wild strays were roaming about the places freely.

Sad Part

The Purple Frog doesn’t want to take this matter up anymore because six more ( 5strays + 1 pet ) will suffer if it picks up any further argument. It is evident that to these several years older ones, it doesn’t really matter what happens to the planet…but their egos must be fed.

Even Sadder Part

The Purple Frog will not ever explain these arguments to them in person because it is a super wastage of time, effort and dignity.

However, it knows that such people need just one shout-out from a person higher up than their social ranks and they will suddenly, understand it all or rather acknowledge in feeble voices that they were being jerks on purpose.

For now, The Purple Frog is going to wait for some compassionate, kind soul of able rank to read this and solve Pet Woes once and for all. The start could be at least one pet park among several of those for humans in an area…

But the mention of a pervasive Solution and not just Creation Of Problems…

Thing This Week

Nevermind the delay in the arrival of winters in the The Northern Hemisphere. The chilly mornings are assuredly signalling – ‘The Winter is Coming’…

So, working on a warm woollen for the little pet here that brings oodles of warmth to the heart here.

Pet Woes

Hey you…hey…excuse me…hello…helloooo….are you deaf…oh, God…are you new here….are you deaf…oh, you deaf one. Oh, you 20 years younger one…hey you…don’t walk your dog on the pavement. Do it on the grassy patch.

Hey you…child…don’t walk your dog in the park.

Hey you…don’t walk your dog in this enclosure of houses. Go outside the gated community.

Hey you…go inside your gated community…this is the main street.

Hey you…Is that a dog you are walking…

And many more (about 50+ in 3 days of moving into an old house) suggestions on where not to walk your dog…Maybe next, they will not be ashamed of suggesting where to bury him if he dies of not answering the nature’s calls.

The dirty park where children burn crackers (an activity as questionable as walking a dog in a city)…The dirty society where 5-6 strays roam around and shit all over the place…no one knows where to where from…

But, a nomadic-by-nature pet animal walking around in the most guarded way so as not to offend the passersby, gets commented by a lady dressed in the most non-stylish morning walk clothes. Well, if a dog can’t walk on concrete…then you can’t wear track pants with the traditional Indian Kurta and sloppy slippers and an unmatched Dupatta and scratch your unwashed head and tell this park is only for the beauties i.e. the humans.

Anyhow, the part above was only a defensive comeback roused by some of those who own the world more because they landed here some years before or at a better home. Name calling and similar ways of doing things was perhaps their style of doing things…People often forget, we are still a nation that has a slum next to every high-priced society and both live off each other all the time…

From people to strays to pets…the question is not who owns the planet more…the question is how you assert and impose your style of doing things and your values without thinking twice. Maybe, that’s the reason why some neighbourhoods, some colonies, some cities are called shanty and some posh…some properties hot and some not…

A little sensitivity along with a lot of thinking before uttering words of attack can go a long, long way for a candid co-existence…
