Weird Fear and a Humble Request

One admission. I have this weird fear of entering a ladies washroom accidentally. And then getting a sound thrashing from all the ladies, fultoo Hindi film ishtyle. And with the advancement in ladies footwear, i dont want to imagine the blows. So, before entering any washroom I check the door at least a couple of times to verify. But, it was all right with the older ones displaying 'GENTS' and 'LADIES' in full glory. It used to make my work and life easier.

But, that fear has increased leaps and bounds due to my inability to understand the symbols placed on the swanky washrooms that adorn the various new-age buildings. No, seriously I am never able to make head or tail of the men/women symbols or the biological symbols placed at the more scientific ones. Why cant we have those innocent 'LADIES' and 'GENTS' or 'Sirf Purushon Ke Liye' back? What is the need for all the geometrical symbols and all?

Ok, I suggest a compromise. You keep those weird symbols but at least get back the 'GENTS' and 'Purushon Ke Liye' tags back!

Plllleeeeeeeaaaaaaaaasssssssssssssssseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!

Cheers,
HP

he he he....good one. It certainly scares me too, the thinking that by mistake I might land in the wrong room and ya the way they put signs it becomes diffcult to understand at times.

We can involve TV(Tamasha Vaale) today news network people, I mean Aaj Tak and India TV(Tamasha Vaale) for our help, imagine Aaj tak news reader blabbering,

"Bhartiya purshon ki trasdi ka ant hona hi chahiye, bechare maasoon gam ke maare purush itni mehnat karne ke baad unhe yeh bhi dhyan rakhna hota hai ki kahin woh galat shauchalya mein to nahin pravesh kar rahe hain"

Waise I am thinking of writing on the news people on the lines of "My new business plan" mocking at the prince story, inputs invited.

Tamashe Vaale is the correct moniker for these news channels..And Pray, why are you ignoring Undie TV and IBN. They too have lost it.Seriously.

About your new business plan, you keep having these plans. Well, when is one going to fructify :-)
