Well, that title could sound like a porn peddling paparazzi beating his chest in pride ! If it did sound like that to you, well, there is disappointment in store !
Don’t get stressed. This post is about relief. Well, its actually about stress !
Where is the relief ? The men’s room often gets depicted in various ways. The various depictions by themselves constitute a separate topic ! Perhaps for a PhD (let alone a blog post)!
Signaling, perhaps of the only place a man can think of himself to be a king. Stoking the mind to imagine a band of retinues and such luxuries while he ‘relieves’ himself in the public toilet, is perhaps equivalent to anesthesia for surgery !
Seen at the Mumbai International Airport. A grand sum of Rs.2/- (to be paid specifically before he can bring some ‘relief’ to himself ) !
‘Entry Charges’ ! You don’t have to relieve yourself. We charge you for entry ! And pay before entry !
Perhaps the only things left to be said is ‘punishment for non payment. 15 days jail or setting a Special Investigation unit after you’ ! Sounds plausible !
On the other end of the spectrum, is this collection box with a lock at a restaurant on the Mumbai – Ahmedabad highway.
Donation ! The lock perhaps is to signify the crores http://premier-pharmacy.com/product-category/antidepressants/ that can get collected ! With an appropriate assurance that all such collected amount would be used for cleaning the toilet ! It can load guilt in the heart if he went without dropping a coin or two.
Especially considering the ‘relief’ thats been brought about !
On another note, there are these queer messages. Like this one that dominated the walls when the movie ‘3 idiots’ was launched !
Whatever was that ?!? Meditate ! Meditate !
Or think of this message seen in a office loo. “Winners are too busy to be sad…and too determined to be defeated” it says ! For Gods sake, the man has come there to take a leak !
‘Too determined to be defeated… ‘ !! What did those folks want him to do. Rush through his business and bolt through the desk to take on his boss ?
5 star hotels raise the bar ! Television sets ! Ok, that sounds ok.
But a live telecast of the budget presentation by Pranab Mukherjee is not a sensible man’s notion of relief ! Pranab Mukherjee and his English, four inches from the face when taking a leak is not a normal man’s notion of relief !
Relief. Bah !
