Indian thug life 👓

A Story by Rahul Bakolia

Dad : Hey Rahul, here, talk to this distant relative whom you've always hated in lifeHe wants to talk.

Passes over the phone.

Me : No, I don't want to.

Dad : When will you ever be mature? We need relatives on this planet. Who will be by your side?

Me : I'm sure whoever is on the phone won't.

Dad : Don't you dare talk to me like that. Here, speak to uncle.

Me : but…

Dad : Death stare.

Me : Gives up.


Uncle : Hai beta. How are you? What are you doing ? Studying still ? Working ? Where ? What's the salary ? When will you come here ? When will you jump jobs ? 500 questions follow.

Me : I'm fine uncle. How's your daughter?

Uncle : She's fine Rahul. What is your next life plan?

Me : When is she graduating?

Uncle : This year. She's planning to go for higher studies.

Me : Oh. When is she coming to Chennai?

Uncle : Umm.. I don't know. Why ?

Me : Nothing. I just wanted to hang out with her. It's been ages.

Uncle : I don't think I'll come.

Me : Not you uncle, just her.

Dad to Mom : What the hell is he talking ? Why is he bothered about her ?

Me : Hello ? Isn't it audible ? Uncle, I'll be waiting to....

*Phone snatched*

Dad : That's it young man. Better not talk like that.

Me : But dad, I'm concerned about her well-being.

Dad : You don't have to talk about anybody's well-being.

Me : but…we need relatives.

Dad : Shut up.

Me : Evil smile.

Dark BGM. Walks away.

I wonder why dad doesn't ask me to talk to his relatives these days. I'm a sweet person. Really.

*No prize for guessing who got thrashed next*

Ta da da da da....

I really liked the excellent comedic sense of this one. The uncle is the perfect picture of the nosy, overbearing relative who wants to know all of your business, especially your employment prospects. The interaction between him and the speaker was very amusing. Of course, I will be embarrassed if this one wasn't actually meant to be funny.

gotta keep with the thug life, otherwise you fall into the mug life, with the same days blending into the same nights.

Enjoyed this. This is, or could be, a radio play, and it reminds me how valuable dialogue can be, in a play for example. So have a look at this, you will enjoy this, with its subtle comedy, well done.

Even tho your ability to spot a funny clip of conversation is keen, there's something else more remarkable about this piece of writing. You use dialogue very well in a dynamic power struggle between the kid & the uncle over the phone. You are very good at showing the tug-of-war starting with uncle in the powerful position, but then the kid gets the upper hand. Nuances in conversation like this are a mark of excellent writing (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
