But there is no stopping her, is there? I read her last post, apparently the last ever (too bad she messed up within the first 10 posts and will not stick around long enough to realize that blogging could actually help her cure that misplaced angst that I understand so well :P). I left a comment, but I have this weird feeling that it will never see the light of day. Even if it does, I will put it down here for posterity because this she will not be able to delete, and she can come back a few years down the line and read it and realize that youth can be tricky.
For someone who describes her name with so much aplomb (sample this: ..unlike your ‘Neha, Priya’ type generic names, I have a beautiful, well thought of name which the folks chose in the hope that I will live up to my rich musical lineage. The name is Shahana, also the name of an Indian Classical music Raga, was composed by the noted scholar Amir Khusrau..), she sure has the audacity to call others arty farty. Shahana is only a name, Delhi is just a city, and South India is just a region. The woman needs a stiff drink and better things to do when she is drunk. I signed off as Bihari. Just so that it is easier for her to label me because clearly, that is her thing.
On a (hardly) different note, is it just me or are young people suddenly becoming more arrogant (not proud) about their lineage/ daddy’s business/ caste/ religion, like it is the 18th century all over again?
Also, how old is Shahana? I hope she is 24 or less, I am more comfortable with people making complete asses of themselves only if they are younger than me. And I am 27, in case you were wondering.
