Mother and Blogging

Dainik Bhaskar, a national Hindi newspaper, carried an article on Blogging. A Bengali Mother who has a daughter of marriageable age read it.

She was intrigued by this blogging business.She asked her daughter about it.

Mother : Do you know what is this thing called blog?

Daughter explained eagerly: Its a place in internet where one writes his/her views on various topics. Somewhat like articles in newspaper. But its interactive.

Mother: Okkk….Hmmm..

Daughter: You know I too have a blog.

Mother: What do you write?

Daughter: Oh, on various topics, like my views on something. And I have many readers too, who like what I write and appreciate my blog.

Mother ponders over this.

Mother: So is there any Bengali guy among your readers?

  2. So, did you tell your mum if there were any?! πŸ™‚ πŸ˜‰

    Reema: Well as far as the readers I know, there isn’t any Bengali guy among them. Anyway I was too busy laughing!!

  3. ROFLMAO!!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Come one, come all!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Reemawati’s gonna get married!!!

    Reema: I am not getting married. I just wrote my mom’s reaction to the fact that I blog πŸ™‚

  4. Ok, so when is the marriage? Or rather do you have any bengali guy of marriageable age here…:):) *winks winks*

    Reema: I m not getting married. I just wrote my mom’s reaction to the enlightenment I gave her about blogging. Well as far as the readers I know, there isn’t any Bengali guy among them.

  5. I am not a Bengali.. I dont mind becoming one πŸ™‚

    Reema: Welcome to my blog! Errr no thanks!! πŸ™‚ My blog is secular towards its readers. Keep visiting!

  6. Iam now forwarding your blog url to some of my Bengali friends. πŸ˜‰

    Reema: Thanks!! But only to be my readers ok πŸ™‚

  7. haha not at all suprised, considering I am a mom myself. πŸ˜€ But seriously, I think a blog is a great way to get to know the thoughts of people, even from comments you can tell a lot. πŸ˜€ Btw, there is one Bengali guy around, but well, he isn’t blogging much lately. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
    So keep your mind and heart open Reema…hehehe!

    Reema: Nitaaaa!! No thanks πŸ˜‰

    I cud understand…

    thats soemhow is the mentality of people…who are just comfortable and have never seen community or groups beyond there own caste πŸ™‚

    good one πŸ˜€

    Reema: Thanks!! But I didnt quite get ur comment. My mom was thinking of eligible grooms when she asked that. I don’t think it has anything to with mentality or casteism!!

  9. i couldn’t stop laughing after reading this…. my mum is capable of asking me this question as well….

    Reema: Yes!! Beware!!

  10. All moms are the same. 😐
    We were a group of 7 friends in Chennai and each and everyone’s mom have asked if he/she wanted to marry someone from the group(ofcourse to the correct gender πŸ˜‰ ).

    Now my mom is after the girls in my office!

    Reema: Hahaha so is there any eligible girl? πŸ˜‰

  11. Hahaha LOL, after reading the comments, I realised that after all it was your Mom…!

    Just give a shout, I don’t mind spanning the entire blogosphere to find a bengali guy and also hold him on a gun point to ensure that he becomes your reader??? You just need to say it babe! πŸ˜› LOL

    Reema: Thanks!! But only to become reader ok? πŸ˜‰

  12. why???…u r asking me why???….of all the people, u r asking me why????

    Reema: One has to keep up pretenses πŸ˜‰

  13. wow….the mother sounds deeply interested in this blogging thing…. πŸ˜†

    Reema: Not quite. She is interested if there any “eligible” readers πŸ™‚

  14. LOL !! So typical of your mom !! I have a sister of “marriageable age” so I know how things happen !! My mom will drive everyone bonkers !! πŸ˜€

    Reema: Hehehe!

  15. Reema,

    Whatever the responses you have received till time … it is OK! But if you ask me … it is really a best and comprehensive platform to share you heart to someone else …. what you say?

    Reema: Welcome to my blog. yes blog is a very good platform for sharing of thoughts between like minded people. Keep visiting!

  16. Hehehehhe!! Seriously moms would go to any lenghts to find eligible men for their daughters. One of my friend’s moms actually invited home one of those guys in banks who attend to people, thinking he wud be good for her daughter!! Poor my friend!! She freaked out nonetheless πŸ˜›

    Reema: Oh my god! Thank god Mom hasn’t done anything like that..yet
