– Sashant Pradhan
Although my vision had already started to blur during high school, I always avoided wearing glasses. I felt they were geeky and they made me look like sh*t. When I enrolled into a college, I had no options then to wear them since I could hardly see what the teachers were writing in the whiteboard, and since being a back bencher didn’t really help my cause.
So moving on, wearing glasses is a struggle, you need to hear unnecessary mockery from a lot of people on a regular basis for a piece of great invention that makes me see the world better and witness the beautiful things in life with clarity. Cheers to glasses and everyone wearing them. The coolest of cool people have worn and are wearing glasses – Gandhi! Lennon! And yeah, ME!
Here are some which I face on a more regular basis:
‘Oi, yo kati euta aula ho?’
As soon as I remove my glass for few seconds/minutes, my friends starts showing fingers and constantly ask me how many fingers are they showing, and the worst thing is that they shove their hands just a feet away from my face. So, all I calmly do is return the favor with a single finger: the middle one!
‘Ta 3D film kasari herchas? Chasma mathi chasma? HAHAHA!’
Yes, Einstein. That is how it works! And even if I wear a 100 glasses, I don’t see how it concerns you, mate?
‘Oho Babu le ta chasma po lagauna thalecha ta, sano ma dherai veeedeeo games khelera hola ni!’
Uncle, firstly no one uses the word ‘video games’ anymore, and secondly even if I did play a lot of video games, it had nothing to do my bespectacled image.
‘Oi khaii tero chasma?’
Jaile chasma nai lagauna pardaina, contacts bhanne pani kehi chij cha hola ni, hoina ta?
‘Budo dekhna thalechas hai!’
No, it doesn’t, it maketh the wearer seem more intelligent, studious, and smart.
‘Teit! Chasmis haru sanga hinna paryo.’
When one of my friends is hanging out with two bespectacled people, they never fail to say this. ‘Lala ta nai hero, maaf pau!’
‘Talai ta chasma bina hero dekhda raicha ni!’
Tyo ta tha bhayekai kura ho ;). Ani chasma lagauda chai dekhdaina bhanna khojeko? Chor?
‘Ah tyo keti talai thik huncha hola, kina bhane tesle pani chasma lagaucha!’
If that were the case, you should marry a monkey.
‘Chaar euta akha bhayera pani dekhanas, thukka!’
It’s amusing that people still find this comment “clever.” It’s filled to the brim with logic, isn’t it?
‘Oi ta tyo Lil Wayne ra Chris Brown jasto chasma bana na.’
No f**king thanks bro!
