He considered Lord Krishna to be a Dude. As in he thought Lord Krishna was the dude who defined what many years later people would term as dude-ism. Think about it. He had a happily married life, plotted better than most war game strategists and before doing that was the apple of the eye of an entire legion of women from one region alone. Imagine if Politics had not taken up his time, he would have been Love’s one and only Flag bearer for the entire world.
Typically we admire people for traits we do not have. He therefore was the typical Indian male brought up on the steady diet of statutory warnings “dating is bad for health” Too much time spent with friends made him a complete ignoramus on other type of relationships. So all through college he survived on the steady dope of tea at night with friends and home cooked food by mom.
As luck would have it, he had to go and take up a job. (It should be noted that Lord Krishna did not have to apply for a job). Our hero was pretty happy with the way things were going till one day his boss caught him at 5:30 on a Thursday evening.
“So what are your plans for the weekend?”
“hmmm.. errr… let’s see.. maybe a play.. or a movie. To be frank, I don’t know.”
“Are you serous?”
So in all his magnanimity the Big Boss decides that our hero needs a life. Promptly he decides to call up the dating agency and says, “I need 24 dates for my kid tomorrow. He needs to know more about women.”
And so it happened. He went to his 24 dates. And life changed for him. He realized that Lord Krishna was not just a dude. He was a cool dude. To be able to handle so many women is not a child’s play. By the time the dates ended, he was perspiring, frightened to death and almost ready to run a marathon if only to escape.
Women… they are scary.
