Snippet 1:

Person 1: Duniya kutti hai yaar, a-holes don’t reciprocate my goodness. I am good to them but they are mean and bad to me.
Person 2: Just because you are a vegetarian doesn’t mean that a hungry lion won’t savor you.

person 1: isn’t that the reason that makes us humans and they are called animals?
person 2: well, we are called “social animals” for a reason.. the animal instinct in us kicks in from time to time, it is the social obligation that prevents us from doing so
person1: grrr, I feel like kicking you for this stupid explanation
person 2: that was’t you, that was the monkey in you that was talking, and please tell him “bad monkey, no bananas”

Snippet 2:

Japanese men sure have a tough time, consider the numerous instances when men (have to) say sorry to women. See the various types of saying sorry, the Japanese way, in this video.

As a kid, I didn’t believe when my grandpa told me about the last type he saw back in Osaka.

    Hey, isn’t doge-fuse what you guys do sashtang in the temple? So is that telling us something :- )

  2. some body Says:

    this ‘doge’ – is it pronounced the way i suspect it is? πŸ˜‰

    – s.b.

  3. Pavan Says:

    rads: yes, dig-fuse is similar to sashtang namaskaaram, which is an advance apology rendered for a possible mistake/felony πŸ™‚ and my inspiration is s.b., to create a parallel Universe (google) with an exhaustive online coverage..

    s.b.: I hope it is not, well, you always have the last kind of saying sorry if you did mean it that way πŸ˜‰

    Why was Snippet 3 censored after having been published…….. Did B’Geeta characters sue you for using their name without their permission ? πŸ™‚

    Oh, liked to see my name so much, I just wanted to put in a gibberish comment. πŸ˜‰
    The video is amazing. Is that what the Japs really do? By the way, I know a guy who works in my company that comes and does (almost) sashtang pranams to me or any other Indian people waiting at the bus stop. Always makes me embarrassed, as to what the gora-goris might think whenever he does that. Prob’ly thinking ‘ah, another (eyes rolling) Indian weirdo…
    (chuckles) πŸ™‚
