YENNA RASCALLA!

Yes, you who revel in South Indian stereotypes. You who believe that we ‘Madrasis’ actually say ‘Yenna Rascalla’ out loud.

Read, and learn.

1. Geography: ‘South’ is a direction; Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala and Tamil Nadu are states. Hubli is in Karnataka, Hooghly in Paschimbanga. Tirupati, Tirunelveli and Thiruvananthapuram are not baaju baaju mein. And Sri Lanka is more than a paddle-boat ride away.

2. Languages: ‘Andu-Gundu-Naaru-Gundu’ may have profound meaning in modern Haryanvi, but is gibberish in Kannada, Telugu, Malayalam, Tamil and Tulu. ‘South Indian’ is not a language – Tamilians will comprehend Telugu the day Mamtadidi spouts Gujarati.

Know that even with this distance, your presence in my life and within me, is an anchor.

When I am with you, even when it’s only by telephone, there is an emotional flex. I feel vulnerable but not defensive. My shoulders relax, my breathing quietens and I feel tiredness creep over my muscles. My body tells me it’s all right to rest now. It’s time to let…

1. Do not fall in love with people whose bodies are littered with land mines that bloody your hands each time you touch them.

2. Do not fall in love with people whose “I love yous” mean “I love fucking you”.
It’s not their fault. They tend not to know the difference.

3. Do not fall in love with people whose gaze pierces your chest with lightning.
It will blind your heart and you will leak out of yourself.

4. Do not fall in love with people who belong to other people.
Fall in love with people who have never known belonging. Show them.

5. Do not fall in love with people who want to make you theirs.
Fall in love with people who let themselves be yours.

6. Do not fall in love with people who feed you with their fingers.
