I admit to anyone who mistakenly has had any mis-conceptions about me (usually people think I am a snob...so hardly anyone would have the misconception.)
It is a different thing that I like & try to be less judgmental about things, concepts, thoughts, & people. I actively try doing it...as a result, I realize...I am more accepting of things, concepts, thoughts, & people that are not the norm. I am good with accepting things which are 'usually' unaccepted to the social world of middle, upper class Educated India. I specify the subset only to be clear to me...you may choose your own. I am therefore unable to accept things which are the norm...this is where I find difficulties. I am not able to comprehend leave aside accept the routines people follow to live a hassle free, homo-phobic, chauvinist, insensitive lives & think all is well? I try to understand & live a life caring for all these & other such ideas & ways of life...& when I don't accept the urban, party going, loud, dressy lives...I am called a snob...when the whole of India has given themselves the permission to look & sneer at all things thats important to me...why I can't I judge them? Everytime a group of young people hear the word feminist from my mouth...they scatter away & whisper in corners & more so are scared of me...everytime I say no to going to a posh place for a drink stating my reason of feeling guilty for living so lavishly...I am looked upon as a looser...so why can't I smirk at their la-di-da lives??
I choose the fact that I can...& I choose to not feel bad about it.
Inspite of all this self-proclaimed theories about me...I continue to work for a multi-national company...& live an urban life...you sure can go ahead & judge me.
