Hi Guys,

I've been writing 69-word, theme-based stories for the digital lifestyle magazine, The Brown Scooter, every month.

Read off and let me know what you think/feel :)

Random Rants... total raanti isstyle!

Water, water everywhere,
Not a place to pee....

Well, this rant has nothing to do with the above lines...

Can someone please give me ONE good reason - y do people bring their moms /gfs/ wives/ sisters/female relatives into the gents compartment during peak hours?

Is it their way of showing their 'LOVE' that they can't stay away from their partner even for half an hour?

Or is it more a case of "I-am-man-enough-to-take-care-of-my-female co-traveler-even-during-peak hour rush time" syndrome... Me thinks the latter one is more prevalent...

Assuming that the people I am referring to are NOT first-time travelers, any guy with a decent maturity level will tell you that it is not a good idea to take your female relatives with you during peak hours (say around 8-11 in the mornings and 7-10 in the evenings). Not only will these morons bring their wife but also their kiddos, moms and god knows who all! Then comes the
most frustrating part.. they will stand in the middle of the compartment and expect the office-goers not to touch his female companion...I mean..wot the fuck!? I understand that there would be an odd pervert who would want to make good use of the helpless situation but then again, if you are soooo very concerned bout men brushing against ur wife/mom, y the hell do u bring them into the gents compartment at a time when people are standing (sometimes not even that!) in Kamasutra positions!

I can probably understand bringing one child along (advisable in extreme conditions only..) or bringing ur parents along if they are old or handicapped (the handicapped section is also an alternative, atleast during peak hours) but puuhhhhlleeessss NO FEMALES!

I am absolutely fine with people bringing in their female companions during non-peak hours or when the train is fairly empty... but please don't be such an A**hole and carry them along in an overcrowded train and expect people not to brush against them... and more importantly, start a petty fight as soon as some poor guy does so unintentionally!



PS: Am starting an informal research service for all of ya - yes YOU!... am gonna put my research skills into some good use ;) ... if any of the readers of this blog need any kind of research and I mean ANY kinda data/statistics/information on any topic at all...put in a comment and I will try and help u out with the same (depending on time and amount of data required)... Am NOT an expert on anything , just a good researcher - IF the information u require is available on the internet, then I WILL find it for you...and its completely FREE - for now!!! ;) Lets just say its in the Najayaz BETA version for now!

hey nice post - esp lol @ Kamasutra positions! :D .... I have encountered similar 'cases' before .... one ended up in an altercation that concluded with a brawl (thankfully it remained confined within the local :P)

In one notable case, the guy was almost necking out with the gal & then he expects all of us to look the other way! obviously, everyone was ogling (nation's favourite past-time)

Yea & even I suspect its the latter .... its a case of the male wanting to prove his masculinity, rather than an overbearing sense of affection.

Anyways, nice read! keep blogging!

@ Rajiv - Thnx buddy... ohh so u were unfortunate enuff to get into a brawl...but good that it got over in the local itself, u can never trust those uncouth, uncivilized morons.. and yes i totally agree on the national pasttime one! keep checking back..

Neha said...

Hahahaha...nice wan.So how did the lady react to this?? Was she not amazed by her man's guts! Well i can actually not understand the situation, considering i hvnt been into a local train ever.. but still nice one. Dont get so angry.. Chill!!

CruciFire said...

@ Neha - which lady? i haven't made reference to any particular lady or incident in my post, have I? it was just a generalised comment and it is a little hard for u to understand as u haven't travelled in the mumbai trains a lot... so leave it..

Dhananjay Shettigar said...

Just curious, is it the gent's compartment or the general compartment? Though, discretion is the better part of valour...

kanchida said...

Kaunsa research free karoge...on y brc management is jerkish??

Ace of Spades said...

me thinks, the man may have his reasons - proving masculinity et all. But only a psycho, half-mad, nympho lady would actually come into the compartment (assuming of course its not a 1st timer). so blame the lady!!

CruciFire said...

@ Dhanu - Since I alrdy answered ur question...no need to repeat the same.. keep checking back! :)

@ Kanchida - Hahaha no re baba, no research needed for that, reasons alrdy known... will tell u bout the research thing later..

@ Savio - Hey, wot a pleasant surprise! Well i do agree that some part of the blame sure lies with the ladies but i dnt think many of them actually see it as being risky/bad... and me thinks it also gives them a heightened sense of security...ah wotever!

Surya Ragunaathan said...

hmm...true...all of it...nice :)
Though i found ur usual humour part missing.

Dhananjay Shettigar said...

Can you find me the relationship between the steep drop in Adnan Sami's waist size and the decline of forest cover over the past one year? :)

CruciFire said...

@ KK - Okay saar, i dont think it is easy to get that data for free but let me see....

@ Surya - thanks ma'am... and yeah i did try to incorporate some of my signature humour but i guess this would have diluted the raw nature ;) of the rant a bit..

@ Dhanu - saale kaminey, mazaak mat uda... ghar pe baithke kuch kaam nahi hai toh yeah sab sochta rehta hai kya!?
