Food is being prepared…


Online food delivery has become part of life, particularly in urban areas and amongst youngsters. This post is about online food delivery wherein Mr X throws few interesting questions. 😊 😛 Let us see what Mr X wants to convey.

Mr X was to meet one of his relatives. He thought of taking some sweets as he was meeting them after one year due to lockdown. He ordered some sweets online. After placing the order, the status on app was showing “Your order has been received”. Mr X checked the status after few minutes, and it showed “Food is being prepared”.… Mr X thought for a while and he recalled what he ordered. He ordered Gulab Jamun, Kaju Katli, Moti Choor Laddoo, Rasmalai and Rasgullas. Mr X was wondering how is it possible to prepare all these sweets after placing the order? Also, the status on app was showing “Your order will be delivered tentatively in 30 minutes”. Mr X mind was full of few questions as below:

  • How come Gulab Jamun, Rasgullas, Kaju Katli, Moti Choor Laddoo and Rasmalai can be prepared after I placed the order?
  • Preparation of these sweets started after I placed the order?
  • It takes hours to prepare sweets and few sweets even take more than 24 hours to get into the final touch. Then how is it possible that these sweets are prepared in so less time?
  • “Food is being prepared” should not be the status as sweets are already prepared in advance and not after placing the order…

Logically, Mr X is right as sweets preparation takes time, in general. Try to answer the above questions raised by Mr X. 😊 😛 His logic seems to be correct. Share your thoughts on Mr X observations and thinking. Have you ever thought of such questions? 😛   

Stay happy. Stay safe… Keep smiling… 😊 😛 And yeah, don’t do overthinking after reading this post… 😛

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… 😛
