People, life’s full of shit. We all know that, don’t we?
But the jugaaru and street-smart people that we are, we manage it all and play that ‘rokh sob milai asu card’. But sometimes we have to let go off the steam, you know? We have to let the pressure out. And being an Assamese oh, what relief it is, oh to utter that one single k-word. So here’s to all the times we have let it go and moved on, saying ‘Baad de, kela’ and was totally justified.
1. When you go to college just to know it was a day off:
Let me get this straight, for lazy people like me, getting out of bed in the morning and doing all that is to be done and reaching class on time is a herculean task. And if you manage to do so, reaching class on time just to hear that there is actually no class, there is just, just one thing that comes out of our tired mouths.
*KELA, ANEI AHILU*
2. When you are on the road and the fuel tank empties:
Okay, you’ve got your biker-dude-rocking-that-leather-jacket-look mode on and suddenly in the middle of nowhere your bike stops. You look at the fuel tank just to find it empty and you are left with no other choice but to drag the bike to the next gas station.
*KELA TEL TU SAI LOBO LAGISIL*
3. When you have a packet full of cigarettes but no matchbox:
There’s nothing sadder than having a cigarette but no lighter/matchstick to light it. Damn, poor us.
*KELA MATCH ETA NAI*
4. When a bird poops on your best outfit:
Imagine you are on a date, waiting for her, when suddenly you feel something sticky on your shoulder.
*KELA KIHE HAGILE*
Ok. Stop imagining, it’s too dangerous.
5. When someone sticks chewing gum on your hair:
And I won’t even tell you to try imagining this. Its a terrible nightmare. Only the ones who have experienced it will know the feeling.
*KELA ATIA SULI KHINI KATIBO LAGIBO*
6. When you just reach the station and the train leaves in front of your eyes:
*KELA TRAIN KHON MISS HOI GOL*
But I know we are sure to promise ourselves to be punctual from the next time, which by the way, never happens.
7. When you get the news of a concert happening, after it has already happened:
*KELA PAPON DA’R SHOW TU MISS HOI GOL*
8. When download fails at 99%:
*KELAAAAA* because only we know how it feels like.
