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 toothpaste that was dutifully advertised to him in the newspaper.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, pastries, porn and what not :D
After class, as they are taking a long walk in the campus, the guy suddenly sees a black cat 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 cat had 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”.
At night, the girl insists that the guy stay over, but the guy gives the usual excuses of "I have to work hard for my exams, I suggets you do the same" or some Bollywood-ish excuses like "Log Kya Sochenge". In the end, the guy wins and the dejected girl goees back to her hostel, thinking whether this is all worth it.
In the weekend, they go shopping as the guy insists. The fella buys all kinds of stuff for himself, like a new pair of Reeboks (Hey, guys will remain guys no matter what the universe may be like!) and Levi's. The poor girl worries on how she will pay for all this stuff.
Suddenly she sees a stall for something new – A new credit card by a leading bank, in association with Nike! Why the hell has that bank come up with such an crazy combo, she wonders. But then she remembers – her boyfriend is absolutely crazy about Nike. 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 Nike-branded credit-card and the guy went absolutely nuts about her! Then they shopped happily (or heavily, whichever way you look at it) ever after!
When you think of this very hypothetical situation, some of you may think "Impossible, Blasphemy, This is Madness!!". But when I think about it, all that comes in my mind is the question "What if this were true?" Who knows, in a land far far away, perhaps the guys have all the fun :)
