Adjust please

Sunday, May 02, 2010 Posted by Bikram
Phrase common to India and has become a part of Indian psyche is ‘ADJUST....

Chandigarh to Muktsar Bus .. Three seater, four are sitting already, Mr. Conductor blows the whistle, last minute entry, pats you on your shoulder "Thoda Side Mariyo", "Shift Please" --- ADJUST

Girls walking home alone, guys whistling , Not to worry, change your route or come with a male member of your family or if you are lucky with your boy friend or better still start to travel by car.. ADJUST

In a Wedding Party hall. you are sitting perfectly fine in your chairs, round the table.. When Uncle Ji or Aunty ji will come , Pull a chair from the other table, and Make sure to push it between your table circle.. ADJUST

Indian Hockey team being selected, A guy is not selected, the Local MP calls up, cause he wants his , sisters - Sister-in-laws Son to be Adjusted in the Team- ADJUST

A Team selected to Go abroad for some seminar, The principles Wife not in the team, The team needs to be adjusted.. ADJUST

A Group of artists, (punjabi singer) coming to UK for a show.. 2 -3 people Adjusted as TABLa players, or side-kicks to make a quick buck by getting them the visa.. Adjustment -- ADJUST

Too many cars on the street? No problem, there will be space for one more. Mine. You better ADJUST!

Men want to pee on the roadside? Madam, ADJUST.

The water heater broke down? Boil water on the gas until the electrician is called and he fixes the problem in.. like a decade. What do you do? ADJUST.

You don’t get your broadband signal in your home. You can’t surf the Internet properly. You call up the service provider. If you manage to get through, that is. Meanwhile, you just ADJUST.

This post is sounding like a rant, dear readers, kindly ADJUST.
