Guruji Speaks - Emotional leakage

Ladies, Gentlemen and building contractors,

Guruji has arrived in the prayer hall and has placed his holy bottom on the dias, you may now get started with your queries and concerns.

[Q] Kumar asks -  Guruji, I’m about to get married and I am worried that the woman I’m planning to marry is wiser than I am and in future she will dominate me with her smartness. What should I do? Call off the wedding or go ahead and marry her?

[A] Guruji - Son, Guruji advises you to go ahead and marry without any worries because of two reasons. Firstly,  wise husbands, mermaids, tooth fairies are all fantasy figures existing only in folklore and you aiming to become one will be a futile exercise. Secondly, there is no danger in marrying a smarter woman because, in the history of humankind no wise woman had ever used her wisdom against her husband, except to convince him pay her apparel bills. You, your future spouse and the textile shop owners have Guruji’s blessings.

[Q] Brinda asks - Guruji, have we evolved from other creatures or are we created by god?

[A] Guruji - Dear Brinda, Guruji had answered this question on many occasions earlier too, we are not toilet-rolls  or political scams  to be "created" by somebody, we have evolved from lesser complicated life forms gradually.

[Q] Brinda asks -  ..but Guruji, what is the proof that we evolved from lesser intelligent life forms?

[A] Guruji - Don’t you watch Big Boss?

[Q] Mohan asks - Guruji, has social media really changed anything about our lives ? if so what is that change?

[A] Guruji  - Son, social media has contributed to humanity in many different ways. It is hard to point out any particular aspect that influenced us more than others. However, helping us make informed decisions is one of the biggest changes social media has brought in. Imagine your spouse of 20th century coming to know that you “LIKE”ed Mallika Sherawat ’s “TWEETS” or Pooja Bedi’s “BLOGS” last night. Had we not have social networking,  the above information would have caused her applying a pressure of 10 Chapati Rollers on your head instantly.

[Guruji’s Blog Editor] - We would like to clarify here that the “spouse of 20th century” mentioned by Guruji here is different from “20th Century Spouse”, a TV serial made by an Indian woman producer to prove the theory of evolution.  

[Q] Mr.A asks - Your Holiness, in my job I come across many irate customers and colleagues who I cannot shout back at. Now problem is I ended up yelling at my spouse or kids that evening to get myself some consolation. Am I right in doing so? If not what should I do?

[A] Guruji - Son, your condition is what behavioural scientists call “emotional leakage”. It is absolutely wrong to take your anger on your spouse or children as they are not responsible for your said condition. The best remedial measure for this is to go to a wide, open space such as a hilltop and yelp in all random directions for half an hour, you will feel alright after that. Now if the hilltop is not a possible option, your next best bet solution is to join national television as a prime-time news anchor.

Ok dear children, time for Guruji to say goodbye to you all, may his blessings be with you. We shall meet at the same place, same time next week unless an ongoing epidemic like dengue fever or football world cup force him to be bedridden by then.


  1. Hahahaha! Your Gururji is a genius. Please send my best wishes to his holy bottom.

  2. [Guruji’s Blog Editor] :- Purba, Guruji is honored and would like to thank you for this wishes
