India has never been a polite country (well mostly), but some people have toiled on, trying to improve it one person, one behavior at a time. However, the next woman who waltzes by like some queen without saying “thank you” while I hold the door open for her will feel that door on her butt.



About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.

  1. Sarcasm and dark humour are not for common people. Common sense isn’t so common either. ☺☺

  4. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ then when she turns back, say you’re welcome. Or “not me, it was the door. It wants you to thank the person who held it open for you”

  5. Ugh a pet peeve of mine. I used to take the passive aggressive route and say ‘you’re welcome’ to the non existent ‘thanks’ but now I just remain my high horse and leave the rest to karma πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
