Wanna Whack?

To err is human; but to whack the one who committed that error is in our hands!

- Me.

Was it too strong for a statement? Well, that’s my problem! I speak my mind aloud all the time that most of you don’t do.

It happens with so many of us. There are certain incidences when we feel like punching someone hard and break his/her nose! But fortunately for them; we do not do so. Many reasons – no guts, no strength, numb mind and what not. I have had quite the few encounters whereby I wanted to smack someone hard; but stopped at a push; that too only once!

During summer vacation in school, I had gone to Pune, my grandmother’s place for a stay. There I used to play with our servant’s daughters. The eldest one was 16 at that time. Through her sisters, I got to know that she had a boyfriend and they met every evening near a park. One such evening, this girl did not return from her date. Everyone tried to look for her, but in vain. Her mother spent fifteen days crying and looking for her. Somehow they got hold of the guy who was her boyfriend. The police interrogated him and he told them that he had mixed sedatives in her drink and sold her to a pimp. She was now in Mumbai in a brothel. I was too young to understand head or tail of it. All I knew was that this guy had hidden my friend somewhere and not getting her back. I felt like giving him a tight slap. Why slap? If you remember, our hindi movie actresses used to slap guys who did anything wrong! For me, that was the ultimate punishment then!

The girl was rescued; and now she is happily married with a kid. Of course her husband does not know anything about her past

******

One of the worst encounters that I have had was in my early college days. I was returning from my college to hostel in a BEST bus. Next to me was a dark guy in his early thirties. I was busy reading a newspaper when I felt his hand touching my knee. I thought it would be by mistake; but the same happened again in two minutes. I looked at him and his “hawas bhari nigaahe” stared me back. The slim me couldn’t whack him obviously; but I complained to the conductor about this. The conductor asked him to get up and sit somewhere else. While getting up, this despo told me, “you get down, and then let me see who saves you!” Oh my, that was scary. My stop was coming near and his eyes were fixed on me. But thanks to my stars of that day; some fight erupted outside and that despo out of curiosity looked out. Our bus halted at the signal near my stop and I got down and ran for my life

******

In school, my classmate left a love letter in my book. The whole class saw the letter. I went to that guy and pushed him to the wall and ran out of the classroom crying. I didn’t look left or right; just rushed to home and did not come out for five hours! Silly I was.

******

I loved playing cricket. Since I was a girl, I was never given batting or bowling ever. I was always made the fielder. The reason was not that I was a girl; but our team caption didn’t like me a bit! I so wanted to smack his face red-black-blue; but restrained as he was 6’1”. Sigh!

******

The tomboy me once went out with a very good friend. We were chitchatting when he gave me a compliment, “Neha, you are so elegant and feminine”. Do I need to say how I felt at that time?

The guy was very lucky as Murder was (and still is) illegal in our country! I would still have punched him; if he would not have been a body builder!

  9. The one who was giving you a compliment may have been justified.Please,all those who compliment a lady are not flirts---not, necessarily.
    In all other cases you have mentioned--yes, action was justified.

  13. Ha ha, what a list of whacky events. I think even without reading the other entries, u deserve to win ;-) The first two incidents however were really scary. How many girls are foolish enough to fall for men who are untrustworthy. I know its not fair, but I think many a time, you do get a gut-feel or negative vibes from crooks. Don't u?

  14. Lawyers speaking up their mind..c'mon get real..they only speak when it matters of fees....

    I would put your sentence in this way

    "To err is human, to forgive, canine"

    ReplyDelete
  25. A whacky post indeed.
    You inspired me, Neha. Now I so wanna go and whack many people. Yayy! I have a new found energy bubbling up inside me. :D

  26. A real wacky post. Enjoyed reading them and it made me recall a similar experience i had in the bus.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Excellent post. This shows the true situation of the gender difference in India. Most men still dont respect women or consider them as their equal. Many believe women should not be given opportunities at par with men. A conspicuous scenario is in the corporate world, where very few women are allowed to reach the top of the ladder. The situation is worse in India.

    P.S.- Thanks for putting up a Rock Lee pic at the end. He is a true fighter.. :D

  28. Hi! Neha,

    Was just wondering if u could remember all these incidents so well, then the impact it would have created if u ever had a chance to whack them on the spot(provided ur sure they wont react)such was ur fire within you right ?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Nice reading your pretty comprehensive list of 'smack someone hard'....I thought it over hard- i dont know why, i never ever felt so much hatred towards anyone that i 'smack someone hard'...never felt like hitting or doing anything physical to anyone. I feel i am a big defective piece....But i am sure if the things u mentioned were to happen to me i would have 'smack someone hard'.....Nice post. TC:)

  30. All the best for the contest .

    The first two incidents that you shared here are very scary.I can understand how you must have felt.

    Love letters are a shock if written by a friend....but five hrs ???? heeee.

    Girls are always given the task of fielding(yes,even i have been through this--my dad and uncles always made me n my sister believe that the fielding was the most zimmedare ka kaam)...but i am very proud of my daughter--she was being treated like that ,i saw her snatch the bat from this guy telling him ki ye sab nahin chalega,ab meri baari hai ,bat yahan de..and the guy chupchap gave the bat to her.

    Ye body builder bhi ...how could he be so rude to you...feminine and elegant...tchhhh tccchh Neha,tumhe kitna dukh hua hoga.heeeeee,haaaaaaa !!!

    Have a super duper weekend and yes all the best for BPL...really looking forward .

  31. Neha, there are quite a few people I know who could use a whack!!

    It is scary how young innocent girls get fooled by crooks.

    ReplyDelete
  32. That was a whacky post really Neha :) The first person must really be slapped, kicked, put behind the bars. I had heard such things happen in movies, but to happen in real life is soo scary. The second person in bus, I have had similar incidents. Such sick people around seriously. All the best for the contest!! :)

  38. Lot of times I have felt slapping, hitting and what not. I have done many of these things more from 'principles point of view' and out of the impulse at the moment.

  44. Hi Neha....

    whacky compilation.
    When i was reading, i presumed that you will slap at least one guy...And in cricket, it is really sad that your gender made the difference :( ..
    Our cricket team had girls too

    all the best :)
