Alternatives….

the choices we make now determines our future

“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.”

Robert Louis Stevenson

Fourty five year old Shelly while watching a television show went to deep thoughts within herself.

Oh God!! Why did I lose most of my loved ones? Shelly asks the question inside her head. All I tell is reality and people can’t digest,so they leave me right.

All of a sudden the volume of the TV gets increased and Shelly comes back out of her thoughts.

No!!! The says the child in the TV show was being bullied.

The channel switched to another. There the words of the protagonist were “Your reality may be correct according to you but my reality is correct according to me.”

The channel switched again where a teacher says to his student “But you insulted others just to prove yourself right.”

The transmitter changed its frequency again and the channel got changed where Shelly felt that the anchor was personally talking to her. The shows name was “Welcome to the Reality”.

Hi ! I am Tom. And here I am giving you the chance to change your past.

Shelly’s room changed into a restaurant where she sees her ex girlfriend Sofia in the same way they used to meet regularly. Shelly gets a call from her old fling again, she ignored Sofia again for her old fling and was about to leave. Shelly was about to betray Sofia again. This time Sofia says “I left you because you were not trust worthy. You got a chance to change yourself again but you opted what you opted before and I am sorry to say that loneliness is your destiny. Because you betrayed the people who trusted you and never felt guilty or repented for it.”

Before Shelly could think of anything she shifts another point of her life where she was a college student. And she was scolded by her for bunking more than 75 percent of her classes. Out of anger Shelly decides to defame the teacher by filing a fake molestation case. At the present moment also she was scolded by the teacher and thinks of doing the same again. The teacher says to her ” I scolded you because you were like a daughter to me. I scolded you because I wanted that all my students should have a bright career including you. But see what you did. What choice you made and the choice you made for your personal satisfaction ruined my entire life and family. I don’t think you deserve anyone to show you the right path because some people are full of filth inside and you are one of them”

The scenario changed again where she meets a friend with whom she was having argument regarding office related stuff. This time Shelly says to her friend you left me because we had an argument and you did not agree with me. No!! Her friend said. The argument was not even the issue at all. We all have people around us with whom our thinking do not match but we do adjust. I stopped being friends with you because you were disrespecting, dominating, arrogant, untrustworthy not only for me but for almost everyone around us. And you never realised or maybe you realized but never tried to change yourself. You always found the fault in others but never looked within yourself that how you were with others.

“Some people learn from their mistakes and some don’t. The first type of people are respected and the next type is discarded someday or the other.” Choose and act wisely what you want else it will become more hollow and meaningless. I am giving you one more chance. Now it’s your choice to rectify everything what was wrong that shouldn’t have happened. One more wrong choice and your life will be full of miseries.

Shelly gets expelled from the TV show. And again the anchor started his show “Hi ! I am Tom”. Shelly gets to see her ex again. And this time Sophia says her “People don’t change but let’s see what you intend to do”.

Conversation between two team members sitting besides each other. Let’s name them P1 and S1

P1 to S1: Idhar sun….tujhe ek important baat batani hai……..(in Hindi)

Hey!! Listen I need to tell you an important thing

S1 to P1: Ha suna kya hua!

I.e, Yes tell me what you want me to tell

P1 to S1: Kabhi kisi ko sacche Dil se baddua do toh lag jati hai…..kya Kabhi tune sache Dil se baddua di hai….bata na bata na…(in Hindi)

Which translates to “If you curse someone with all your heart it works…..Have you cursed someone from the core of your Heart??…. Tell me man….Tell me…

S1 thinking inside her head ” Baddua to di hai 2-3 ghatiya logo ko” but to P1 she tells “Kya bakwas Kare ja Raha hai….Kya hua bata?” I.e, ” I have cursed 2-3 rubbish people” but she tells him ” What bullshit you are speaking….Tell me what happened?”.

P1 to S1: “Insan chahe Kitna bhi bada ho Jaye , Kitna bhi successful ho Jaye ,jitna bhi kamai karle….agar uski fitrat and harkate giri hue and ****** hai to wo wahi rehta hai…

Which translates like that “No matter how greater or successful a person gets in his/her life,no matter how much bigger he becomes in terms of money and wealth…..if the mentality and behaviour of a person is sick and downtrodden then it will be always be like a heap of Garbage and low grade… “

S1 to P1: “Baat to bilkul Sahi Kar Raha hai, but batayega bhi ke kya hua kya?”

Which goes like “You are absolutely talking sense but what just happened would you bother to tell?”

P1 to S1: “Abe wo Ch*tiya Z5 us new lambi ladki pe line marne Ka socha raha tha. Marne k din a Gaye Uske but harqate to dekho. Usne K19 se sare details nikale. K19 ne mujhe bataya budhau k harqato ke bare me.

Translated as “That @s***#*e Z5 was planning to hit on that new tall girl. In few years he will be in his deathbed but look at his Didos. He took all the details from K19 . And K19 told me regarding that.”

Conversation getting more interesting

S1 to P1: “Ha Yaar usko to koi bhi Pasand Nahi karta. Sabko neecha dikhate rehta hai dhul Jaise wohi pura duniya Chala Raha ho!!

Translater again here we go “Yes Dude, nobody likes him. He treats everyone like PM2.5 (particulate matter 2.5) pollutant. As if he is ruining the entire country!!

P1 to S1: “Usne ‘P8’ ko bahut jada pareshan Kiya mentally and baat baat par galiya bhi sunai. Bechare se Der Der tak Kam karwaya. ‘N95’ ne usse thoda argument kya Kiya uske pure Saal Ka Kam Pani me fer Diya ‘Z5’ ne.

Translater as usual: “He harassed ‘P8’ mentally a lot. And said him things and scolded him again and again for little things. He made him work very late. ‘N95’ slightly argued with ‘Z5’ then Z5 ruined his entire year’s hardwork in just a sec.

P1 to S1: “Parso ‘P8’ drunk hoke bahut roya and ‘Z5’ ko galiya sunaye Ka Raha tha. Sale Ka accident ho Jaye keh Raha tha and pata to hoga he tujhe k aj Z5 ke upar madhumakkhio ne hamla Kar Diya aur wo do din office Nahi ayega.”

Again translated as “Day before Yesterday ‘P8’ got drunk and cursing ‘Z5’ a lot. Hope he undergoes any accident ‘SOB’ said ‘P8’. And you must be knowing that today ‘Z5’ was attacked by a swarm of Honey Bees and he won’t be coming for the next two days.”

Finally both of them laughing out loud. S1 said P1 , “ye to kafi Accha hua, ghatiya logo ke sath aisa he hona chaiye. Usse bhi bura“. Meaning “That’s very interesting l. I like it. People like that deserve worse”.
