Why??

This post is not intended to hurt anyone's feelings. It's purely my mind's rambling; out of impulses born to an inquisitive brain.

Why do fat people always eat 'Lean Cuisine'?
(Don't they know fresh fruits are better than frozen stuff?)
Why do Indian men always want to save, save and nothing but save?
Why do kids always think moms are mean?
Why do DILs always bitch about their MILs and SILs?
Why does fat always settle in unwanted parts of the body?
(I have a huge obsession on staying lean)
Why do people shop things they really don't need?
Why am I sleepy on weekday mornings?
and wake up before sunrise on weekends?
(As if the house is on fire)
Why do people have fat free milk along with bars of paneer
and cans of Ice Cream in their shopping cart?
Why do smart guys always fall for dumb girls?
Why do smart girls fall for bad guys?
Why do people gamble when they know they will lose?
Why is doctors' handwriting never legible?
Why do people park bulldozer sized vehicles in compact parking spaces?
Why is gossip a woman's ornament while men wear it better?
Why does an Indian girl's name always end with an 'i' or 'a' ?
Why is a woman's age and man's pay not be asked?
Why is it fun to break the rules?
Now, why don't I stop ranting and mind my own business?

    1. Happy that you could agree to many, Renu..only few Indian men splurge..at least that's how it is in the US. DILs won't ever..Even if they say they don't, I really won't trust them.. :)

    1. That was a very retreating comment Panchali ji ..Thank you so much.. :)I have piled these up one by one over many months.

  7. That was a good one. If someone really wants to eat loads of panner, then why bother at the fat free milk. I could relate to a lot of things mentioned about, but the killer was the last line, Why bother about all that. Loved reading this. :-)

  9. Why is the grass on the other side always green?
    Why is it that we want to go on the other side of river?
    Why is it that immediately on reaching there we want to come back from where we started?
    Why is it that Latha managed to grab the eyeballs for full five minutes:) Nice ones!

  15. Lots of why’s!! Why? :P Just kidding. I know.. so many such questions keep coming to our mind time and again and the mystery of life is we never seem to get answers. ;) We only get more questions. I remember once.. we were in a restaurant and one of our friends ordered: “Dal Makhani without makhan”. :P

    Very nice list you have got here.Going by this, I might get delisted from Indian men. :P Btw.. really liked this one. “Why is gossip a woman's ornament while men wear it better?” Lovely post.
