Party means ‘social gathering of people, usually along with eating, drinking and entertainment’, it seems. May be that is why everyone wants to be in a winning political party-because they want to keep enjoying. I don’t have a problem with partying, but partying means only drinking aa? Arre, you can enjoy without drinking also. You forgot pani puri eating competition we used to have when we were kids? At the end of the competition we always had a very happy and fully satisfied winner, the pani puri waala! My pani puri waala toh used to give so fast, that before I ate one, he will keep three in my plate, so fast that I forgot counting and he used to say 5. I had only 30 rupees so I used to lose.
What was I talking about? See like this only I used to forget! Haaa, partying! Starting starting, I used to see movies and think that Devdas only drank to forget his girlfriend. Then, movies also teached that posh people usually celebrated with holding drinks. So movies made me think ki if we drink, we will forget everything and we will feel rich. Cheaters! May be Vijay Mallya produced all Devdas movies secretly to become rich. Now honey singh also will start one liquor brand soon, you see, I am telling no, you see! Before, when my friends used to ask me to drink I used to get afraid, I thought ki I will lose control and tell off all my secrets, like, I saw that desibaba site when I was in 9th class only, that I liked this girl in office or I will dance like mad and do something which my friends will record and tease me later. So, I always said, I will drink, but not now, later. Because I wanted to know how it was, but was afraid. Afterwards, I drank beer with my close friends once, it was 70 rs!! And it tasted awk thu! But they said, arrey take one Manchuria.. then take sip, taste will go. It should be chilled and that dirty taste will be less. I thought why give so much money, why drink secretly, all for this dirty taste. Then next time my friends said ki taste different thing. That also was khhhrrwwaak thu, from the epiglottis!
Slowly slowly I drank with friends, but also it was always same. I didn’t like, but don’t know why my friends liked. May be their taste buds wiring is different to mine. But I started enjoying the conversation. Before smartphone came, we used to sit and talk, all friends and family, now all only sit and chat. But while drinking, friends tell their family that they are busy in meeting! They give so much importance to sitting and talking and enjoying and dancing. I like this. So now I also drink. I don’t like drinking, but what to do, if I don’t, they’ll think I am boring or not invite me for their parties. Now toh even if you want to enjoy a nice cricket match, people say, can we drink while watching? I say ki I have nice air filled ruffles lays packets, but they want kick it seems! Even if I ask for football match, they say they want kick, how much kicks is there in football, not enough for you aa? Mad fellows.
Some friends are not even happy if you drink only one glass, they should refill theirs only if I finish and refill mine it seems, they will wait. You like, you drink no, now if I eat one chapathi then you will also eat one only aa? Ek glass, I can’t drink like this, have one, I know you can take one more, don’t keep the glass down after cheers, drink it in one gulp. Arrey! drinking means becoming careless only no, then again rules for being careless also aa? They give like it is Popeye’s spinach tin and I will go hit Bluto after that.
One day I will mix donkeys dung in brown water and say this is Mallyas new start up. May be that will also become a famous drink, may be people will get kick out of it. I will sell bottles and bottles and bank people will say your dung is nice, take money from us and make more. May be Honey singh will sing, “chaar bottle dung ka, roj piyo dung ka” or, I will sing, “maine pee nayyii ye, meno pilaa di gayiie”
P.S: I know LocalTeaParty writes like this, but this language was common for me too, once upon a time!
