There are things in this world, you simply don’t like. One is being blackmailed emotionally. Especially, when they play on your miseries mischeviously. I was at liberty last night to shop for some food after a hectic day’s work and chill out with friends. Just as I was about to get back to the car, a woman came rushing toward me and begged in a babbling sort of way. Okay, I gave her some coins I had. At the places like liberty people are not much considerate of your actions, so they start honking to make our car move. Okay okay, going. There came another begger with a baby, who was watching all this until now, just as to catch me as I was escaping. I tried to tell her that I’ve no coins or change. She started babbling in freaky tone. I tried to hide myself behind the glass. “Allah tere karobar mein barkat..” UP. FASTER. “Allah teriyaan muradaan pori karay” FASTER! She was really irritating and adding to my miserable state of mind was the fact that my mother’s ill for so many days and I’d not been able to visit her. If I thought I can’t be pissed off that easily with what people say, I was wrong. When she saw nothing was working, “Allah teri Ma Baap nu lambi umar de!”, she shot at last. “God damn it!” A ten rupees note flew out of my wallet and she clucthed it hurriedly as a prize money. GO AWAY, I HATE YOU.

Why people are so cruel to take advantage of others’ miseries and grieves?

    You know what, I have a very striaght policy for such people; whatsoever they keep on muttering, I “have” to give them anything in my pocket if they say exactly the same phrase that melted your heart…

    There’s no gift better than our parents so why take chances even fron these black-mailers. Baaaki, Allah humari Nia’at ko dekhta hai…

    heh.. i know the feeling.. in extreme situations they threat you of giving bad-dua’s (cursing?).. which is really last thing you want!

    a friend of mine says this ‘adaab aarz hai’ in a very very serious tone whenever any such beggar approaches him..they dont understand for a min what he said (shocked i think) n then for some odd reason go away.. strange but effective :D

    i would arther not be blackmailed emotionally by a stranger that easily! sometimes although i do feel bad wen i cant buy stuff off a child or an adult selling sumthing at the crossroads..they deserve more even wen sumtimes they r selling old papers coz they atleast are asking u to buy sumthing but ofcourse since i am usually lacking cash or want to buy toffees for myself that idea goes to waste…heheheh i blatantly express my not-so- heartfelt feeling because this is what the majority of people do to who’re probably less sensitive to such issues and thats how it has always been with people who have no time for worries like these in this mad mad world!

    You mean to say you actually listen to what these people mutter?

    I just put on my best ignore face and refuse to pay defiantly. They always give up.
