1. Doctors. This ‘noble’ profession stayed noble for me only as far as the parents of my best friend. Every medicine man & woman after that, has looked at me and my family and seen only a big, fat wallet. Scum.

2. Pedigreed puppies. It’s bad enough that this country values degrees & diplomas over knowledge & understanding. Then there is the fact that most of these branded institutions serve as nothing more than factories churning out certifications by crateful. Add to that the lack of age/experience stipulation which means the average age of the products from one of these institutions is 23 (and the associated immaturity & brashness). And finally there is the idolization that the entire country heaps on them, treating them like God’s gift to this universe, the workforce, the dating scene and the marriage market.Their attitude, their work ethic and the people they are (if there is anything human beyond the degree/diploma) leave so much to be desired. So very much.

3. Male chauvinists, mama’s boys & the typical Indian hypocritical males. Need I say more? I don’t think they deserve more than these words.

4. Workaholics, especially if they are senior to you in an organization. If you need me to explain this, chances are that you’re one yourself and then, I have nothing to say to you except: GET A LIFE!! (and stop torturing other people for your lack thereof!)

5. Delhi men: Male chauvinists. Hypocrites. Overprivileged brats. Boors. Road rage drivers. Presumptous, pompous p*!@&s.Β  And on occasion, rapists. What, really I need to say more? You’re from that bloody city, aren’t you?

To this distinguished list, I now add – House Brokers: The pimps of real estate, the scavengers of the worst of this city – space. I loathe you, I despise you, I think you have to be the most horrible creatures if, of all the things you can do, you choose to do this.

That’s a lot of people to wish were extinct, isn’t it? Well, it’s a shitty world.

  1. heh I enjoyed reading this. Thumbs up for your take on brokers & some of the men from North India (wouldn’t really generalise but have had experiences!)

    1. @Anu: Our experiences define our opinions and eventually, our prejudices, don’t they? I don’t have any good associations with Delhi men and hence my image of them. But the boy is a North Indian as is my best friend and a number of other wonderful people in my life so I don’t feel that way about them.

  2. pedigreed puppies :O lmao ! but really.. massive stereotyping .. you seem to have had real lousy experiences with them.. :s fun read..

    1. @Sanjita Bhargavi: This post was a rant, based solely on personal experiences. So yes, politicians are on the broader hate-list but these are people I’m having to rub shoulders with every damn day. I’d love to believe that not all docs are like but unfortunately my overwhelmingly large number of bad experiences have put me off most people in the medical fraternity permanently!

    1. @komal yadav: Haven’t been in the Island City in years so I didn’t know about them. But the auto & taxi drivers in Mumbai should be on this list too. Delhi men are just universally hated by women, aren’t they?
