Please Do Not Read This

A Story by Pranav Malhotra

Its funny that even after reading the title you decided to read further. But, I urge you to stop reading this article any further. Seriously, there is nothing interesting in this passage. There is no tell tale, no romance, no gossip, no diet meal plans, no blonde jokes, no celebrity wardrobe malfunction, no political mockery, no hidden sarcasm, and definitely no naughty bedroom secrets. There is practically no reason for you to go on any further, so Please stop reading NOW.


By now I presume that you are definitely not in a mood to listen. I wonder why you are reading this even after being obstructed repetitively. They say that the greatest need of the 21st century man is the need to be entertained, engaged and involved. People watch TV, wait in day long queues to buy a new mobile phone, flirt in clubs eyeing for a date, numb their senses over a cold beer in a sweaty concert, travel miles to visit an amusement park.  You should stop reading this right away. Look away ! The only thing that catches my attention is that you could be doing anything else in the world right now, yet you chose to read something that you were specifically asked not to. 




Among the sacrifices made to obey instructions there is not one that equals the pleasure obtained in outraging them.

LOL This reminds me of the movie Inception..."When I say don't think of elephants, what do you think about?" "Elephants" "Exactly".

i love that movie...one of my all time favourites, kept me guessing.
Well, I read it. What else did you expect? I mean, you requested for me to. But I can proudly say that I did not think about the elephant! I stopped myself, so ha!

That is pretty clever. Good job engaging your reader with one simple instruction. :)

I thought of the elephant riding the bicycle and it made me laugh. lol When we are asked to not read or do something, it's our natural instinct to do it because we want to know why we can't and we want to know what will happen if we do do it. It's like telling a little kid not to press the red button; they will do it anyways.

well thank you. :)
I am thinking of The Secret Series written by Pseudonymous Bosch and this captures the essence of his first book wherein he asked his reader not to read it but since we are all desperate to learn what he had written we still read along
