Text Messaging - SMSes (The New Mantra) Part II

As promised, I am back with the second part of the “Text Messaging - SMSes (The New Mantra) Part I”. I have received messaged and comments on the post, so thank you all for making me write one real soon for you. Without much of delay, I would like to come straight to the point and present you with more justifiable full forms of the acronym “SMS”.

Sufi Must Sigh
Religion is something that, in today’s life, we don’t follow at all but we love to preach. Similarly, there is a new Sufi weapon that is accelerating in youth and even elders i.e. sending religious text messages to friends and family members. Not only that, at the end of the messages they (the senders) want you to forward the message to a particular number of people else you will be thrown out of your religion. Why, just because you haven’t shared the “Good message” with your friends and family? Strange! yet practiced.

Sleep Massacre Syndrome
Can you recall the times when you have had a longest day of your life and all you yearn is a sound sleep with your office suit and shoes on? Beep Beep, and again a beep… that’s a forward SMS distracting you from your soundest sleep. You check the message and notice that it’s nothing important. Within a few minutes you receive another message and you check it thinking it must be your boss wanting to discuss something about next day’s meeting but all you find is a forwarded text message. This keeps on playing with you and finally you can’t get what you desired when you lounged on that bed of yours. A perfect night ruined by forwarded text messages. Sigh!

Sweet Messages Showered
It’s not been too late that I can’t exactly recall those sweet and soft messages of my cappuccino sending me texts full of emotions and “lovey dovey” emoticons.  But definitely receiving such messages every time is not appreciated as a person has to study, work in office, drive car or attend a meeting etc. In such conditions these sweet messages are kind of a nagging experience.

Do share your comments and experiences, if you also have some interesting full forms for the same acronym.

Keep reading. Thanks!

Generation – We Belong To

With the passage of time mankind has faced a lot of changes and this is the reason why we say that the only thing constant in life is “change”. Mankind has been divided into generations by philosophers. They named it Greatest Generation (those who were born before 1946) because no one wants to call themselves inferior – no matter what.

Those who were born from 1946 to 1964 are known as The Baby Boomers. Have you ever considered why? They used to boom and bang everything that used to come their way. Babies love to bang and that was the reason which made them bombastic.

There was another generation which was into “X” activities by default, may be because of the outburst of multi-faucet genes which they had. Obviously no other name could suit them other than Generation X (those who were born from 1965 to 1979). That was the same generation which gifted the concept of hippies – living like weirdos, eating like animals, drinking like as if there is not formation of urine and staying dirty like pipe holes. They used to have kids which never liked to call them dads / moms but bonkers.

This generation from 1980 – 2010 is known as “Generation Y”. God knows what would be the reason behind calling my generation “WHY”. May be its because of the fact that after experiencing with 3 generations and not getting it “WHY there is no improvement in mankind” they might have named it “Generation Y”.

There are some other grounds on which I can conclude that why this Generation is known as “Y”. Following are the observations:

This generation keeps on asking questions like:

  1. Why (Y) should I study?
  2. Why (Y) should I work, if my dad is already earning like anything and minting money by adopting corruption?
  3. Why (Y) should I get out of bed when I can have everything available on my bed, be it breakfast, play station, video game, cell phone, food, drinks and even a girl to get nasty with? Last but not least a bedpan too.
  4. Why (Y) should I buy food for myself when my parents are there to bear all my responsibilities?
  5. Why (Y) should I get married when I can date women and have whatever I desire?

Last but not the least, following is the perfect example to describe the concept behind calling this generation “Generation Y”
