15 Things We Indians Can Be Thankful For This Thanksgiving

“Thank you” is something really unheard of, here in India. “‘All Indians are my brothers and sisters,’ and no one thanks family, dude!” With that being our ‘Constitutionalized’ attitude, I believe we certainly need at least one day to thank people! You know, like an annual ‘saree’ or ‘dhoti’ Diwali picture on Facebook? Yep, you can even thank those you push in the metro because you are always in a hurry but never on time! Thinking of such reasons and people? I will give you 15!

1. ‘Maa ke haath ka pyaar bhara khana’

Yes, she yells at you for being a ‘nalayak’ for a reason. Impress the filmy Maa on this day and you can sleep till 10 in the morning for a week!

2. Lift on the p*rn ban

Porn banned in India

857 sites listed

Ban lifted

Now you know 857 sites!

Well played, government. 😉

3. For the ‘sarkari naukri’


Image source: memegenerator

Well, some people went through all those 857 sites before banning them. And you thought government jobs are boring! *Face-palm*

4. For ‘Rahul, naam toh suna hi hoga!’

I grew up to believe he was the perfect guy, but, “Girls are stupid” “Sharaab ladkiyon ke liye nahi hai. Have a soft drink.” “Girls cannot play basketball!” Yeah, thank you for the ‘picture’-perfect guy. :/

5. For Rahul, who is a Gandhi

Coz he also visited the homes of the people distressed by the ban on porn. He watched porn with them in order to express solidarity and unity! 😉

6. And what about ‘Prem’ ‘jo wapas aa gaya’


Image source: mintified

Yes, I know ‘Prem Ratan tera 300 rupees khayo’ but c’mon it is bhaijaan!

7. For the ban on beef

Now beef at restaurants sounds yummier!  So don’t ‘beef’ about it!

8. Comedy Nights With Kapil


Image source: Facebook

Because you can sit in front of your TV screens and laugh out loud while watching a show whose funny elements are: A grandma who loves drinking, a girl who is fat, a wife who has ‘big’ lips, and a ‘bua’ who has not yet tied the knot. Funny indeed! ☺

9. For the black cats crossing the road coz they are going somewhere

Let this Thanksgiving be the beginning of using black cats instead of traffic lights on the Indian roads. Will be more effective, eh?!

10. For the ‘Award wapsi’


Image source: firstpost

So you at least know that these people got awards!

11. For Arnab Goswami

“Because India’s got a question?” though he is not going to let you answer. It’s all about ‘teen chize’: Entertainment, Entertainment, and Entertainment.

12. For Modi’s foreign visits


Image source: dailyo

“Acche din kiske aagaye bhaiya?” 😉 “Chaiwala, what a player!”

13. For Neil Nitin Mukesh not making it to GoT


Image source: halfticket

Yeah, George R.R. Martin killed him before casting him in the series, but why I am asking you to be thankful is because you have saved yourself from dialogues like, “White Walker, Neil Nitin Mukesh , the first, second and third of His name!”

14. For Bigg Boss


Image source: Facebook

For teaching us how to not just suck it up to the people living with us but also punch the living daylights out of them! God bless the Father of Mankind for a show like this. “Aaye! Baap pe mat jaa!” :X

15. Patriarchy

You really need to be thankful that women don’t have toilets to pee in and if they try to relieve themselves somewhere, they are sure to get raped, coz men are having chowmein! Be thankful for parents who will not let you speak to strangers, but ‘pay’ to make you sleep with one such ‘suitable boy!’

But, ‘above all this’ do thank ‘upar wala’ and I am not talking about Chaddha saab on the 2nd floor! Thank the 36,000 Gods, Allah, Jesus, Nanak, Buddha and the rest, for becoming the excuse you use to fight with one another. Jai Hind!

“If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn't brood. I'd type a little faster.” This Isaac Asimov line, embraces my love for writing in the finest and most desperate way that it is and should be! I was tormented by the earnestness of the written word not very early in my journey. But once smitten, it has helped me devour life twice over; savoring the moment and indulging in its memories. As a flâneuse, I wander to understand the intricacies of human relationships. Realizing that, they are just different manifestations of the same feeling of love, has been my greatest learning. I seek to share its opulence through the words I type.
