If only...

Hi

There was some weird contest in my college by some junior batch team, where we were supposed to concoct a wacky and weird story using the following 5 words:

"Billi" "Ladki" "Mandir" "Toothpaste" "MTV Citibank card"


So I made this story just for kicks and guess what - I won! So here goes that story and tell me what do you feel about this one:


If Only...


Usually, it’s always the male half of the human species which has to do all the chasing and flirting and “first-moving”. Just, for once, let’s speculate a parallel universe, where the situation is exactly the opposite. Let us consider the life of a MBA student in such a world.


The guy wakes up early in the morning and dutifully brushes his teeth using the new “Colgate Toothpaste”. Then he gets ready for his classes and reaches his classes on time and ready to listen to his teacher and dutifully take down all the notes for his “ladki” (read as LADY) friend, who just gazes at him admiring his clean-shaven face. But hey, this boy is not an ordinary “bali ka bakra” here, he demands more. So the poor girl has to make sure that she keeps him well fed with a regular dose of chocolates and pastries.


After class, as they are taking a long walk in the campus, the guy suddenly sees a black billi cross his path. He is instantly frightened and catches hold of the girl’s hand and begs her to take him ASAP to the mandir, because he has to do darshan immediately to avoid the spell that the billi has cast on both of them. The girl reluctantly takes him to the mandir. There she prays for the same thing as always – “Hey bhagwaan, is weekend pe is naalayak ke haaton mera purse khaali mat karwana”.


In the weekend, they go shopping as the guy insists. The fella buys all kind of stuff for himself, like a new pair of Reeboks (Hey, guys will remain guys no matter what the universe may be like!) and Levis. The poor girl worries on how she will pay for all this stuff.


Suddenly she sees a stall for something new – A MTV CitiBank card. Why the hell has CitiBank come up with such an crazy combo, she wonders. But then she remembers – her BF is absolutely crazy about MTV. And CitiBank is the leader in Credit card services. She tries out the system and bingo! The card is too good to be true! Interest-free for one whole year! She applies for one card immediately and is given the card in 30 min flat (It’s a fast world!). When the dreaded time for the bill payment came, she proudly flashed her MTV card and the guy went absolutely nuts about her! Then they shopped happily ever after!


Lousy story eh? Well, the universe is a huge place. Who knows what it has in store for all of us… If only this were really true, if only…


----The End----


Well, waiting for your comments on this one...

THE BEST SENTENCE IN THE WHOLE STORY WAS THE LAST ONE " THEN THEY SHOPPED HAPPILY EVER AFTER!" AMAZING MAKE UP DUDE...ABOVE ALL, LIKED AND AM WONDERING HOW YOU GOT THE CONCEPT OF PARALLEL WORLD..ALSO, IT WUD BE HUMOROUS IF YOU HAD INCLUDED HEAVILY AFTER HAPPILY IN THE ABOVE SENTENCE WHICH WAS LIKED BY ME...ANYWAYS, IN THE END, IT IS WORTH FOR THE FIRST PLACE....TRUE GENIUS...

Thanks man!

Well that last sentence was a impromptu one - never really thought about it before.

How I got the idea of a parallel universe will be the subject of my next post.
