Raita…


Let us be chill and laugh. This post is a try to make you smile and laugh by using the famous phrases, Raitan failana and Raita sametna.

Raita is an Indian dish made of curd together with raw or cooked vegetables. The other form of Raita is boondi raita. It is also served with Biryani and sometimes consumed after lunch or dinner. Hold on, this post is not about preparation of raita but about when we use raita in our conversation. The popular Hindi saying, “Rait failana (Spreading raita)” and “Raita sametna (wind up raita)” are often used in the conversation. Those who aren’t aware of these phrases, let me give a small description.

Boondi Raita , PC: Google

Raita Failana: Raita failana is used when there is a mess created. This phrase is used to crate a mess in situations where things were going well.

Raita Sametna: This phrase is used to get back to the normal after raita is spread. This means when someone had created a mess (raita failana), the same is used to clean up the mess.

Let us look at the below incidents…

Raita Failana

Mr X was invited by his friend, Mr Y, for dinner. Mr X and was welcomed by his friend. He had dinner and Mr Y asked him to taste Raita as well. Mr X was shocked, and he asked, you want me to eat Raita? Mr Y responded, Yes. Mr X reiterated his question and Mr Y gave the same answer. The moment was becoming little but serious as Mr X tone was not normal. After some time, Mr X said, Maine to suna hai ki Raita failaya jata hai aur tum mujhe Raita khane ko bol rahe ho (I have heard that Raita is spread, and you are asking me to eat). Everyone present was laughing after Mr X responded. Mr Y gave a look to his friend and said, Maine to tumhe Raita khane ko bola tha aur tumen Raita faila diya (I offered you to eat Raita and you ended up spreading the same). Everyone was laughing with their conversation of Raita… 😊 😛

Raita Sametna

Mr X and Mr Y were colleagues and good friends. Both were working in the same company and in the same project. Mr Y was given a task which he didn’t liked as it was not the kind of work, he considered he should be doing. Hence, he was not serious about it. He was working but not with his interest and potential. The deadline was near, and his manager called for a review meeting to discuss the status. Mr Y was unable to give justification of the work which he had done so far, and his manager understood that he had created a mess. The manager called Mr X and asked him to take over that work from Mr Y and complete the same in stipulated timeframe. Mr X agreed and started working on it and he understood that a mess has been created and he must be very cautious. It will be a time-consuming task, but he was confident to do the same. He was working late in the office and used to come early. One evening, Mr Y asked him, how is the work going on. Mr X said, he had to do a lot as the work Mr Y did was a mess. Mr Y was smiling and asked him this is the reason he is working late. Mr X said, han tumne Raita failaya hai main ab use samet raha hun (Yes, you spread the Riata and now I am winding up the same). 😊 Mr Y laughed and so do Mr X and other colleagues sit nearby.

This is Raita which is consumed as a dish and used in several conversations. Often parents also use this raita failana when their child creates a mess in house. The above incidents are relatable, and one may have experienced or observed the same.

After reading the post, try to laugh or smile and recall those incidents wherein you spread the raita or you have to wind up the raita spread by others… 😊 Stay safe, stay healthy and stay happy.

Try to Laugh – 1


Laughing is a good exercise and it is always recommended to laugh to release stress. In fact, some people laugh without any reason. Life is too busy these days and there are many browsing internet in search of jokes to laugh. I am a silent person most of the time but when I am in mood, I leave no chance to make myself laugh and others as well. So, in this post, I thought of sharing a joke which is as follows:

Some of my friends kept on asking me, whether I have been to any Cruise? One day, I thought to answer this question.

Friend: Hey, have you been to any Cruise? It’s awesome yar.

Me: Of course, Yes!

Friend: Waw… I have been to Cruise 3-4 times.

Me: Oh… Only 3-4 times. And I go to Cruise more often.

Friend: Waw… You are so lucky and rich.

Me: How?

Friend: You have been to Cruise several times.

Me: Yeah, I have… In fact, I have been to Cruise hundreds of hundreds time.

Friend: Looking at me surprisingly! OMG…

Me: Looking at his face for some time and asked, what happened buddy? You are shocked?

Friend: No no…But I was thinking…

Me: What you are thinking?

Friend: Nothing… You are very rich.

Me: See, I have been to “Santacruz” several times in Mumbai… 😊  Whenever I go to office by train/road, Santacruz comes in between. 😊 😛 

Friend: Scratching his head…. 😊

Well, I think most of you have understood, particularly Mumbaikars. Santacruz is a place in Mumbai. This is the response I gave once. You may consider this a PJ i.e Pakau Joke. But think the other way around, PJ can be Perfect Joke as well. 😊  😛 Hahaha… Just try to laugh if you can. You might be wondering who created this above PJ and the answer is me… Lol 😊 I will be sharing some more jokes… Don’t think much by reading this post and just keep your mind aside and yeah, try to laugh… 😊

Send me the link :-)


Remembering the initial days of blogging, I remember one of the most common excuses given by most of my friends was , “Send me the link of your blog post I will see it… ” However, this has not yet changed and remains intact meaning that if I ask them to look in to my blog post, the same excuse comes. 🙂 For more than six years I came across this excuse. If you will ask whether they really read your post, the answer will most of the time, “Arey, I forgot. Please send me the link again.”  Have you been through such response? 😛

Interestingly, one person told me to send link to all my blog posts. I responded in saying that I will send you my blog link where you can read all the posts (obviously my blog will contain all the posts… 😛 ). But he kept on insisting to send all the links separately so that he will read when he is free and is in relaxed mood. I was wondering what to respond.  I thought there are more than 100 posts, meaning I need to send 100 links to him. LOl… 😛  Obviously these memories make me laugh and I really enjoy facing them. 😛 What about you all? Did you come across such incidents? Do share your experience which will make me and others to laugh more. Hahaha… 😛

Sudden call…


 

I would like to share an excerpt from Radio Mirchi where you get some silly incidents which make you laugh. I was laughing so much which I can’t express. Just read and enjoy…

A person called a girl to inform about that he had liked her profile picture on facebook. The girl showed gratitude by saying thanks to the person and was impressed to know the same. After receiving thanks, the person told her that by mistake he liked her profile picture which he is going to dislike now. The girl asked the reason to dislike. The man said, “What is there to like in your picture? People like the picture when there is something to like. People press the like button if the picture is pretty enough, if it is attractive, beautiful etc.” Annoyed by this the girl says, “Since you have already liked the picture, let it be.” The person was not convinced with the girl’s argument. Read the following conversation.

Man: I pressed the like button by mistake so I will dislike it now.

Girl: Don’t dislike it. You have pressed the like button let it be as it is.

Man: No no, I will dislike. There is nothing to like.

Girl: Hey please don’t dislike.

Man: I will dislike. I just called you to inform that I am going to dislike your pic.

Girl: What do you think if you will dislike something will happen to me. I am getting 100 likes to my pictures.

Man: That’s good. Please enjoy today by 99 likes as I am going to dislike.

Girl: What the hell?

Man: It’s not hell. It was my mistake so I will rectify that.

Girl: Are you mad?

Man: I like only those pictures which are beautiful and attractive.

Girl: I am also beautiful and attractive.

Man: You? Not at all.

Girl: Just put the phone down.

Man: I am willing to but you are only increasing the conversation which is decreasing my balance.

Girl: Han to… Cancel the call.

Man: Ok… Just one minute. I want to say something.

Girl: What?

Man: You are not at all attractive so I will dislike your profile picture.

Girl: OMG…. Huh….

Really the above incident is funny. What do you say? Have you come across such unexpected calls… If yes how you responded that moment or share any such moment which you have observed… Just for fun 🙂 . .. Hope you have enjoyed reading… 😛

Concluding without Analysis


There are different circumstances in life where we always come to conclusion after analysing the facts and figures, situations etc. In fact life is always full of incidents. Every moment we are facing an incident or better to say some happenings which are always a part of life. Each and every scenario has its own aspects. Life is never the same. Every time we take some decision based on some facts or scenario and come to a conclusion. But do we really always  come to a conclusion by thorough analysis of all the aspects and facts?   If you want to know the answer then you have to analyse first and then come to a conclusion.

Yes what I am pointing here is one of the general and most neglected behaviour and that is “Concluding without analysis”. There are many circumstances where we bluntly come to a conclusion without analysing anything. There are times where we generally come to conclusion without knowing the reality which should be avoided.  No one is perfect in this world. Everyone is having some faults and this is the law of nature and we cannot change it.

analysis

In this hectic and busy life, we meet and interact several person in our surrounding or in office. Its not always easy to feel comfortable with everyone because everyone is having his own comfort zone.  Everyone is having his own way of thinking and that may be good or bad. Many people have the tendency to taunt always and hurt others without any reason and enjoy that situation and laugh uselessly. There are many things which we cannot control but there are few things which we can control and behaviour is one among them. Our behaviour is that part which can make or break the life and coming to a conclusion without analysis is also a part of our behaviour.We should not posses the tendency to judge others regarding their work, talent etc. At the same time we should not predict what he/she will do or become in future  because remember Dr A.P.J. Kalam was an orphan and he used to sell newspaper in his childhood and he became the “missile man  and President of India”. Narendra Modi was a tea-seller in his childhood but he is the current Prime Minister of India. There are many other examples too.

The tendency to arrive at a conclusion is good only when we have analysed the facts or otherwise conclusion without analysis will happen which will in turn can be dangerous too. Concluding without analysis can happen for sure by mistake or in hurry but that doesn’t mean we should make this a habit. There are circumstances when such kind of attitude is not good to the person bearing it. It depends on us how we proceed on such situation. A simple example is if you are not well and decides to go to a doctor for check up. The doctor first collects the information from you like your name, age etc. and then checks your body temperature, blood pressure etc. and asks from you regarding your symptoms or if necessary he may opt for some blood tests. Based on these information he comes to a conclusion that your are suffering from this disease  and prescribes the medicine for same. Does he prescribes the medicine as soon as you reach without knowing your situation? The answer is no.  In the same way we should also avoid coming to a conclusion without knowing the reality.  Concluding without analysis can give you fun for a short term but for the long term , it is a disaster.
