Welcome to the World of "????Namis" . .

Welcome to the World of "??Namis"

I couldnt help but, let loose these, relatives of "Tsunami" in our daily lives, some of them are a common place with not so much reality damage as the now famous "Tsunami" . . read on for a light hearted moment with a civic message in it.

Below is the extract :

The Geographical Meteorological and Metaphysical Association has released a compendium of disaster definitions. If you study them with a keen eye you may find that some disasters happen with sudden and devastating impact while others are happening and we don’t even realise it. Now, which of these applies to Delhi...

Tsunami: This disaster is caused by an earthquake in the ocean. This results in the shifting of tectonic plates and displaces a large amount of water. Travelling at great speed towards the shore, as it passes the speed decreases but the size of the wave increases. Finally when it hits shore it can be a wave 50 foot in height causing havoc.

Manmani: This refers to the condition where everyone does exactly what they please with complete disregard to how it may affect another person. It begins with small acts like going the wrong way on the road, triple parking, illegally building and eating up the pavement but the ultimate result is large scale havoc as the fabric or urban order begins to break down.

Badnami: Can be broken down into two words Bad and Nami (names). Caused by the condition where upon the slightest provocation a mouth begins running in free flow with a string of abuses. B$&*—%, can’t you see you’ve grazed my car by 1mm, you P*—#@! The way you drive I can make out your father is a G—#@+, and your family is S*—%$#. Pretty soon this whole thing is flowing through the city making it seem like a verbal gutter.

Susupani: A geographical disaster where every available stretch of wall is converted into a urinal. Very good for any plants that are growing there but very bad for the nose. Benami: Refers to the presence of black money in huge waves. Very dangerous for any city state as people use a city without paying their dues.

Salaami: Indicates the presence of too much fawning and yes sir attitude. Salaami or repeated Salaaming is typical in any city where all that is worshiped is power.

Anjaani: The situation where even people who live in close proximity insist on behaving like total strangers. Yes sir, these tectonic plates never shift.

Notfani: Once again can be broken into two words Not (not ) and Fani (funny). Sums up a city where there is a great lack of humour and joviality, and harsh words as well as blows are used too readily.
