    Lucknow! You Don’t Follow Traffic Rules: Wake Up Now Or You’d Never.

    Lucknow has since forever been the land of nawabs, doing what one wishes to and not being under anyone’s supervision is exactly how the little nawabs are brought up here. With all its glory and reputation it’s something really hard for the so-called nawabs to swallow the bitter truth that, they are way oblivious to the term called ‘civic sense’. (I hope you know what civic sense is! You do, right?) Well, to be frank, it’s tried and tested getting things inside the boneheads of Lucknowites is one Herculean task. It’s great to see the city developing but, I feel sorry for the city, as it’s not gonna be of any use. With such level of ignorance on the roads, no metro or bullet train would be able to solve the problem. It’s high time for the people of Lucknow to jiggle their common sense and bring out their civic sense to use (i.e if they have any) because it matters.

    You won’t be rewarded for your lack of civic sense, try being sensible and follow the basic untold norms of the society. ‘Kar ke dekho achha lagta hai!’. This rant is solely dedicated to the audience of Lucknow for, they need special mention to get things through their thick brains. To say it in the desi language, “Bhai gaadi hai hawaa jahaaz nahi, to driver raho pilot na bano…Kya samjhe!!”

    1. FYI Lucknow, cars come with a safety device called ‘seatbelts’. They are there to save much more than just “CHAALAANS”.

    Ever paid attention to the straps next to the seats in your car? Well, unlike you, they are there for a reason. Well if you pull them across your chest and clip it in the hook on the other side of the seat, behind the handbrakes the setup becomes a life guard! (Just in case you did not know) See the thing is, they are there for your protection and not for decoration, better push off your laziness and use it or abandon your car and walk your way because knowing your awesome driving skills it’s a surety you might need it soon enough.

    2. Oh yes! good that you know about, the low and high beams feature of your vehicle. Try learning when to use them too.

    Using high beams inside the city! Like seriously. Well, you might not get the intensity of it but let me assure you, the fellow drivers do feel the intensity, to the limit of stopping their vehicle in the middle of the road and smashing that headlight of yours into your face. Maybe then, you would get how difficult it gets for other drivers to concentrate on the road with your headlight shining at them.

    3. Ever wondered why indicators were not made automatic? Well, because it needs a brain to indicate before turning.

    Like really!! What’s the use of you driving when you don’t even know when to indicate your turn. Indicating just before you turn..’Itna ehsaan bhi kyu kiya janab!’. Either learn how to drive on the roads without risking other people’s lives or, just give up the idea of driving completely, ‘Kyuki Tumse na ho payega!!’

    4. You know what, take a little longer U-turn than going the wrong side. Your bike won’t die of the excessive workout.

    You know what, driving on the wrong side to avoid taking the U-turn which is a bit ahead, is not at all sensible. Whats the use risking others’ lives while trying to save a bit of your petrol or time. Your life might not be of much importance to you but others’ have a life worth living. So, instead of trying to save your money try using your brain and take the proper U-turn.

    5. The Roads don’t need your ‘paan’ art. Try your artistic skill at your home instead, you might get your ‘Bharat Ratna’.

    We agree that Lucknow is full of talented people but show-casing the talent on the road is something disrespectful for your talent. So, try your paan-art at your home because, to be frank, no one is a fan of your art. Keep your shit in your house, the roads and the people don’t need to see how you are killing yourself.

    6. See at times, you need to recall the number system you studied in preschool, One-way means ONE-way, not TWO!!

    ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR… that’s how the number goes, do I need to remind you what it means because seeing the way you take the one-way signs on the roads, seems like you need to go to the preschool all over again. No? but you don’t know when the sign says one way it means the vehicles have to move in just one direction and not two.

    7. Lucknow has a lot of parking spaces. Try giving your vehicle a cozy place instead of those lavish roadsides where you love to park.

    Parking in the middle of the road!! have you ever wondered when you are busy enjoying your time in those shops people on the road are hurling all the possible abuses at you and waiting to beat the shit out of you once you are back!. If you don’t want to be seriously hurt someday try avoiding parking your vehicle in the middle of the road and make use of the parking lots.

    8. Your relatives may be very dear to you but unfortunately, not everyone’s interested in knowing that. Greet them once you’re off the road.

    This is something that irritates me to the last nerve, it’s the patience and upbringing that has stopped people from lodging in front of your vehicle and shout it out at your face, ‘Ghar nahi hai kya tere pass? vha kr lena mel milap! ye road hai bhai!!’. We are well aware that you have a lot of relatives whom you keep bumping in the middle of the road. Greet them, meet them, take them to your home only after you steer clear of the road.

    9. The roundabout is not a hurdle, it’s the damn path, you won’t lose your precious race if you follow the path!

    Come again! What’s that race you have participated in? No race? It doesn’t seem so!! The all-time hurry you are in, skipping traffic signals, flying over speed breakers and cutting through the roundabouts what are you trying to prove? Because despite all your efforts you reach late at your destinations, better follow what path has been set for easy movement than risking people’s lives.

    10. Pedestrians, Not So Innocent! Are You?

    Dear pedestrians, using sidewalks for walking won’t bring disgrace to you. What on earth, makes you avoid using the safe path and take a senseless stroll on the main road. Having an idea of your road sense, it really isn’t surprising to see you struggle your way across the road despite your super power to stop the speeding vehicles with just a gesture of your hand (seems like your powers are of no use). Next time, walk in the right lane or carry your first-aid with you for, you might end up needing it.

    11. Did You Know? People have eyes too! So, try giving your melodious horns some rest in packed traffic jams in the future!

    Ughhh!! Please STOP doing that. Are you an ignorant troop of baboons? When it’s clearly visible that the road in front is completely packed and the person standing in front of you can not move a bit to let you pass, what makes you blow the horn so fucking loudly? Do you intend to deafen the people around you? Or do you think your horn will make the mountains move? If nothing of such sort is on your mind then DON’T BLOW YOUR HORN, until needed of course.

    Seems like you are close to getting what is so clearly said in this and if still, you did not get what all the fuss is about then please go wash your face, sit and read it all again for you need it the most. Don’t make us come to conclude that we were barking up the wrong tree the whole time. Don’t be offended it’s just our way of saying things and if you are offended well, it’s none of our business. (Boo-Hoo)

    18 Situations That Got Us Into Some Serious Trouble Back In School!!

    School days are the best days of one’s life. We have so many beautiful memories of our alma mater, some sweet some sour, but the blend of the two is actually the reason behind our smiles. Things that terrified the sh*t out of us then now make us laugh till we cry. We have collected some silly things that got us into some serious trouble then. Read along and share a laugh with us.

    1. Getting late for school (Bs Bhai Chauhan ma’am absent ho aaj)

    Be it winters or be it summers reaching school on time has always been a problem. Getting on our bicycles when we turned into mini-Usain Bolt and tried covering 2 km in 5 minutes, those were the days when we dreaded being late to school.

    2. Incomplete Notebooks (hain! copies kal hi check hongi?)

    Completing class notes to left out homework, it was something we gave the least importance to at times. But the real struggle began on the night before submission day, when we stayed up all night to complete the notebooks for nobody really liked holding arms over their heads in front of the whole class.

    3. Chaos in class (Bhai bahar dekhiyo Princie round pe to nahi hai!)

    The moment teacher left the class all kinds of chatter started. From pen fights to chalk fights the class turned into a war zone. Despite how much we enjoyed these fun breaks we all dreaded the thought of principal being on a round.

    4. Dirty uniform (Class se thodi chalk pakad le PT shoes chamkaane hain)

    Despite all the frail efforts of our mothers we never maintained our uniform clean, especially the P.T shoes. They always ended being dirty just before the P.T period and the inevitable wrath of the P.T teacher was all we could foresee.

    5. Not singing assembly hymns (6th se 10th mein agaye aaj tak yaad nahi hui)

    The fear of humiliation in front of the whole school made us sing the prayers in assembly. We never enjoyed singing all spiritual songs in groups so just to avoid being scolded all we did was lip-syncing the songs and not actually singing them.

    6. Un-informed leaves (Pet mein bohot tez headache tha ma’am)

    Taking days off of school was one thing we were all good at. Those sudden stomach aches and head aches were all just excuses for not going to school. But the real fear started when the next we had to appear before the principal and all we had for our protection was a fake leave application.

    7. Laughing when others were scolded (Inke sath yahi hona chahiye, Zyada hero bante hain!)

    The moment when you were not able to control your laughter while your friend was being scolded by the teacher and the terrible moment that followed when the teacher saw you laughing and you knew next was your turn.

    8. Chewing gum inside the classroom (Bol ab, who is the captain cool haan!)

    We all can still feel the fun we had when just to look cool in class we sat on the last bench and chewed gums in between the class. Though the best part was when the teacher asked us something and we couldn’t answer because obviously, we had gum in our mouths.

    9. Bringing ‘wo wali’ Magazines and CDs to exchange (because Dil Aashna hai! 😍 )

    The excitement of those teenage days when everything was so intresting… yarr share krna toh banta tha.. and the shame that followed when you were caught taking a peek at them sitting at the last bench. “ye toh hona hi tha” 😀

    10. For playing FLAMES on the back of every notebook (aree isse reasoning power badhti hai ma’am suniye toh!)

    Friends, Love, Affectionate, Marriage, Enemy or Sibling It was a forever fun game. Calculating who gets what and whose crush comes out to be their sibling was the funniest part. What followed all the giggling and pointing was the teacher checking the back of our copies and us standing outside of the class. But the happiness to have found you and your crush’s FLAMES calculator called for Love was ultimate.

    11. Eating lunch while class is going on! (aaloo ke paranthe the yarr! bachte hi nhi!)

    Umm still not guilty for this after all aaloo ke paranthe the vo!! We all know the feeling of little grumble in our stomachs in between the class when you did not have breakfast because of being late and your friend told you in the morning he has aaloo ke paranthe for lunch. not guilty even if caught!

    12. Writing stupid things on desks (sher apni territory mark karte hain)

    Writing down names inside hearts shapes engraved on the desks making good use of the compass. Secret initials of A+R in the sides. Despite all the strict orders from the teachers we still loved doing this. Afterall doodling was our favorite pass time.

    13. Using ball pen instead of ink pen (shirt ki jeb rang jaati hai yaar!)

    Ink pens are messy, Ink pens are smudgy, Ink pens are not waterproof and ink pens are not ball pens 🙂 We loved writing with ball pens despite the fact that our handwriting was spoilt because of them.

    14. Long nails, long hairs, and Low waist trousers such big problems (because fashion dude, KG me thode hain ab hm log)

    Well! this was the only way we could show some fashion in that boring uniform of ours plus it looked cool, though none of us enjoyed the sudden beatings we received by our teachers on Monday mornings especially after assembly.

    15. Sneaking mercury and magnets from the science labs (kyoki chori mein fun hai, adventure hai)

    Despite the fact that mercury is a very harmful element, playing with it was always fun and, the best part was stealing. Though being caught led directly to principal’s office.

    16. Trying to access “Special Websites” in the computer lab (because…you know why 😛 )

    Well, we are not to be blamed, having a personal laptop or cell phone wasn’t that common. Plus what else could we have done with our forever curious minds 😛

    17. When we used to roam in the whole school in the name of bringing chalks (are Tripatthi sir ne bheja hai chalk lene k liye, apne mann se thodi aaye hain)

    The one time when we all were too ready to do what the teacher asked was when we were asked to bring chalk from the staff room. Because that was when we got the real freedom of roaming around the school that too with the trump card that we were out for the class purpose.

    18. Skipping Saturday for Shaktimaan (because SHAKTIMAAN dude!)

    Oh! come on it was Shaktimaan plus we have forever supported the fact that Saturdays should be off. So we did it our way ignoring the but obvious scolding we had to receive on Monday.

     

    Every one of us has a notorious side and that’s what made our school life worth remembering. Akhir hum apni nadaniyo se hi toh famous the!! 😉

    Lucknow Teacher Slaps A Kid 40 Times For Not Saying “Present, Ma’am”.

    In a pathetic video, that recently went viral on social networking sites, a female teacher is brutally beating up a child of class 3rd. Incident was from St. John Vianney High School, Lucknow where reportedly the child was bashed for he wasn’t paying attention at the time of attendance. The incident was recorded on the CCTV. It clearly shows how the teacher is hitting the child continuously in front of other students. Corporal punishment has been banned in India for some time now and such behavior is highly condemned.

    ‘Spare the rod and spoil the child’ a very old saying which doesn’t rely on logic. Making children learn things by putting them under the fear of punishments is not something that moulds them. Corporal punishment induces fear and suppressed anger where the child is unable to express himself and as a result, stress becomes a part of the child’s personality. Corporal punishment has been banned in India for some time now and such behavior is highly condemned. Picking up a rod to train your kid is surely not the right way to make him learn. Beating, abusing, punishments in absurd uncomfortable positions is surely not going to make your kid learn what you want to.

    Some support such actions saying this is necessary for training the kids and getting them disciplined. Well, to people who still keep such thinking, beating a kid of such small age, just for the sake of them following some strict rules, can not only have the complete opposite impact on them but it can hamper their confidence forever. Corporal Punishment is surely not something that should be continued.

    The government of India has banned Corporal punishment and any such action by the teachers in the name of disciplinary action can lead to imprisonment. The students are free to report any such actions. It’s high time such disgusting people get punished for their inhumane behavior.

    Lucknow Metro To Kick Start on 5th September. Are You Ready!!

    Rejoice Lucknow! The dream of travelling in Lucknow’s own metro is about to come true. On 5th September, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh along with the U.P Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, is going to inaugurate the Lucknow metro for the public marking a historical day. The Metro would run from Charbagh Railway Station to Transport Nagar covering a distance of 8.5 km.

    The Lucknow Metro Railway Corporation (LMRC) has announced the fairs for the metro ahead of its launch for the 23 km north-south corridor. For now a small part of the metro is into running from September 6th and the whole corridor once set up will run from Chaudhary Charan Singh (Amausi) Airport to Munshipulia covering a distance of 23 kms and crossing 7 stations. The fares given by the LMRC for this route is minimum 10 and maximum 60 rupees. The fares have been decided keeping the fares of other metros over the country in mind, along with the fares of other competitor transport options.

    The Lucknow metro will be available for the public use from 6th September. Unlike the common procedure of basing tickets for kids on the age factor, Lucknow Metros’s tickets will be given on the basis of height. The rule set up for this is that a kid who is below the height of 90 cm (2.9 feet) will be granted free ticket. The scale for height measurement will be present on the ticket counters to avoid any kind of confusion or inconvenience.

    The Lucknow metro has the provision of smart cards which would help the local commuters as well as tourists. Special full day cards for tourists are also availed for taking tour round the city. Get ready to take your first ever ride in the Metro of Nawabs. Go grab your ticket, be the first to go round in the city’s own metro.

    12 General Perceptions About Lucknow and Lucknowites. How True They Are?

    Its human tendency to form`a perception upon seeing someone or something. We judge the person on our personal scales based on our likes and dislikes and rate them. Many times our this habit/tendency puts us at loss, for while judging others we fail to actually see who the person really is. Same is the condition with associating certain beliefs with cultures and areas in turn making the general misinterpreted perception of the place and its people.

    We bring to you certain false perceptions people have about Lucknowites. They are just not fair guys!!

    #1. Everyone has a political background.

     

    FALSE: Really!! despite how much we would love to claim power, this perception is totally against reality. The famous ‘Chacha Vidhayak Hain Hamare’ concept is funny yet not fully true. Well to be frank, we just enjoy boasting.

    2. You will find them always clad in traditional Kurta Pajama or suits.

    FALSE: Well so not true! Yes staying connected to the roots of our culture is something we love but adapting to the modern culture is something we are good at too. Rather some of the famous fashion designers have their roots in Lucknow.

    3. People of Lucknow are offended by the ‘tu’ dialect.

     

    TRUE: Bull’s eye guys. That is a 100% true fact. The ‘tu’ dialect is regarded as disrespectful and too harsh! The people of Lucknow have grown in this soft culture where respecting others is thought to be of utmost importance, and using ‘tu’, ‘tera’ doesn’t really suffice.

    4. Kebab is the definition of food for them.

    FALSE: Ahaa!! Yes, we are proud of our Awadhi cuisine and having the tasty kebabs such misconception can be expected but, we have the best vegetarian food too! try chole kulche… most of the Lucknow drools over them. So relax guys there is a lot of food for veggie lovers.

    5. They are these sweet bunch of people who almost always welcome you clad in all the ‘Lucknowi tehzeeb’.

    FALSE: Ahmm. You have got that totally wrong. ‘Tehzeeb’ is a very close part of this land but, sorry to say you really won’t enjoy meeting the Lucknowi people in person if you keep that ideology. A general hello with a side hug/ warm handshake is what you would really get. *cough*

    6. Lucknow is the home to the age old Royal Literature.

    TRUE: Lucknow being a home to the awadhi culture has since forever been a literary center. The Literature is celebrated here. The Lucknow Literature carnival is a great example for the love of Lucknow for its literature.

    7. The day begins and ends with adaab and salaam.

    FALSE: Misconceptions! Misconceptions! We are the same like any other folk! So a regular hello is what you would get to hear instead of the Adaab that you are expecting.

    8. Lucknow is the only developed city of UP.

    FALSE: Wrong here. Lucknow being the capital city shines out bright but don’t forget about Kanpur-commercial capital of UP, Allahabad-judicial capital of UP, Varanasi-Religious capital Of UP, Agra-Recreational capital and of course Noida-IT capital of the state.

    9. Paan is treated as a delicacy in Lucknow.

    TRUE: Well this is so true! Paan comes in so many different varieties and is actually treated as a delicacy in Lucknow. Be it chocolate paan or banarsi paan trying out every type is more like our responsiblity, after all we are the Nawabi descendants.

    10. Urdu is the only language entertained by people here.

    FALSE: NO! its a secular city people. People from all faiths live here together and that too peacefully. Urdu, however being a beautiful language and having a great past in this awadhi land is not lost completely but its not the only language flowing in Lucknow.

    11. Gazal is the only form of music we get.

    FALSE: Gazals are one of the most soothing forms of music and we completely adore it but its not that people in Lucknow don’t understand music apart from gazals. Coming to the taste of music you would come to meet people with such varied interests that might leave you bewildered.

    12. Almost every Lucknowite fancies a hookah at his place.

    TRUE: Not so wrong i would say. Hookah is one thing that links us to our nawabi culture and its true that every Lucknowite has surely at some time fancied a personal hookah. Because of the developing club culture of Lucknow most of the Cafes have a special place for hookah lovers.
