Unrelated relatives

Relatives. Highly useless species. I mean not dormant like stuff. They have to do things. And always in the negative!


My mom is the one who picks up the call as always.

And from then begins a spate of words each more spiteful than the other. Its about my blog. My mom's reaction goes from bewilderment to shock.

I have written about an army cousin! Really? I never once thought he was worth writing about!

I have put up pictures of them! *Shudder*

The family name and honor is at stake! I never knew we had one!

The accusations have been many.

15 seconds of fame. Everyone seeks.

I would like to say some things to all my so called 'relatives' reading my blog. In defense or not.

• My writing is my own and if any resemblance to any person living or dead is but natural. Live with it. At least let me.

• There is a word called verisimilitude. Look it up.

• If you have anything to say, say it to me. There is an email id on my profile page and I truly respond to any emails that come my way.

• And please, if you can...spare me the joy of being read! I really don't like any of you and I know that the feeling is mutual. So why?!

• And on a parting note. Be more courageous. My mother is not the one writing. I am. All answers, if any required, come from me.

To the rest, and I mean the nice people who read me and are not related to me, I will be back with a post and soon. After all there are stories to tell….

Outright courageous!........gud job.
It is better to shut 'em up rather than pacifying.
Nothing servers like a tight slap on the face & it's worth its effort.
I'm new around..........I like your tone......

hi poornima,

logged in pretty late. from the milan pickle to have a rod in the pickle was pretty interesting. couldn't stop my smile. "certain relatives" wow....they 'always' remain ubiquitious. the vitriol or expletives they deserve hardly makes a mark on the certain.... , but anyway you must be finding some relief in venting. nice to keep reading. looking forward to the posts.

Good work Poornima - echoed some of my sentiments towards some....

hey but the guy did get some relatively temporary mindspace. i would have just ignored him - as in cant be bothered.

but then you wont be you if you do that, would you?
