Frequently asked questions in my life

Diary Entry 3

These are some of the questions people keep asking me time and again. Everybody new person I meet, asks me at least one of these questions.IT IS VERY ANNOYING.

Frequently asked questions

1. Are you a muslim?

Ans. Jeese. Just cuz there is a shake in my name doesn mean I am a muslim. This is the most
bizzare question of all. No I am not muslim. I cant believe some people have never heard my name and here I was complaining for being stuck with a very common name. 

2. Are you a mallu? Where u from?

Ans. Yes. Mom from pallakad, dad from cochin. (Pallakad is not in Tamil Nadu for christsake)

3. Can you teach me Malayalam?

Ans. Some people are really persistent and annoying with this one. I can tell you the translation of words
in Malayalam but dont expect me to give you classes.

4. What the hell!!! You are not vegetarian?

Ans. Not a single cell in my body is vegetarian bro. Worst part is, every time I tell a vegetarian that I am not a vegetarian, they put their tongue out as if they are going to puke. *Sigh* Some people just cant imagine me eating chicken I guess. 

5. You a brahmin rite?

Ans. This is the second most frequently asked question. No I am not. Not even remotely close to being one. Some times it is worse. They assume I am one and ask me stuff about what sect I belong to.

6. How are you so fair man?

Ans. Too bad god made me that way. Sometimes they make me regret it.

7. Are you fair because your mom is a dermatologist?

Ans. Oh come on. If my mom could make people fair at will then you would be reading her name in the papers. I will make sure I tell you once my mom finds out how to turn dark people fair.

8. Hey ask your mom for a "cream to grow fair/cure for pimples etc".

Ans. My mom will only ask you to get a life.

Now for the most frequently asked question

9. Oh my god i thought you were so innocent?!?!

Ans. hmmm.

I put the last one here even though its only just a statement made with shock. That is because people say it as if they expect an explanation from me.
