Fauji upbhokta

You know how a song, a phrase, a dialogue often reminds you of your fauji, and whenever you hear it, his image comes to your mind?

For me, that dialogue is “Jiss upabhogta se aap sampark karna chahte hain, wo abhi coverage shetra se bahar hai.” 😈😈

J&K, Andamans…. been there, done that!

Happy Army Day everyone!

I hope more young men and women realise what a challenging and noble profession this is, and join the Indian Armed Forces.

Let us take a moment to salute our men in olive greens who don’t always get the luxury of sitting in an AC room, or having ghar ki roti, or attending their kids’ PTA, or going to a movie, or staying with their families…

But hey! It’s Army Day today. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a fultoo-serious affair. So, here’s my small attempt to bring a smile on your faces, appreciating the brighter side of life!

Two places a fauji always visits(1)

8 questions your relatives ask when they visit your fauji ghar!

Questions relatives ask when they visit your fauji ghar!

1. Ye furniture army ne diya hai?
Our answer: Han ji, see the point is that it is difficult to travel with a lot of stuff every one or two years na. So Army generously provides the basic furniture to everyone.

2. Ye bhi? Wo bhi? (pointing at every possible piece of furniture).
Our answer: No, this lampshade, this painting, this “welcome” sign, all this is a part of our personal purchases!

3. Army fridge aur TV bhi deti hai kya?
Our answer: Nai mummy ji, wo aapke damaad ne khareeda hai, khud ke paseene ki kamai se.

4. Ye naukar toh army hi provide karti hai na! (Pointing towards husband’s sahayak)
Our answer: Shhhh chacha ji, wo naukar nai hai. Wo jawan hai jo husband ki help karta hai uniform set karne mein aur official work mein bhi.

5. Ye maali and maid toh free mein milte honge na tumhe!
Our answer: Err, nai. Dono ko hum mahine ke end mein salary dete hain. Duniya mein kahin koi ghar ka kaam free mein nai karta, Army mein bhi nai.

6. Wow! You get free ka ration!
Our answer: Nai baba, ye husband ke salary ka ek part hai jo ration ke roop mein ata hai. Free toh bilkul bhi nai hai!

7. Army log toh party karte rehete hain all the time!
Our answer: Jab tak sab saath hain, tab tak party kyun na karein. Kal kisne dekha hai! (Super senti, I know!)

8. Arre tum toh harr cheez canteen se discount pe lete ho na?
Our answer: Han. (We know you want to buy stuff from there. Just be upfront na!)
