Torture

Wanted to share with you all a little about this book that I’m reading. It has been ages since I started reading this book about a group of very courageous women. Let me outline it a bit, it’s about women in Iraq during Saddam’s rule. A group of them jailed for reasons they themselves have no clue about. Some of them are well educated, while others are housewives. They all share something in common, the prison cell. The book explains the extreme torture they face. The reason why it’s taking me ages is that once I get so hung over the book, and they torture these women like I hell, I tend to break down and cry :$ I know stupid, but I get emotional. And knowing all this is true. I get depressed. So I just keep the book down for a couple of days, before starting another chapter. What I really wanted to share with you is this poem; a woman had etched on a wall of one of the cells.


“They took me away from my home
They slapped me when I cried out for my children
They imprisoned me
They accused me of crimes I had never committed
They interrogated me with their harsh accusations
They tortured me with their cruel hands
They stubbed out cigarettes on my flesh
They cut out my tongue
They raped me
They cut off my breasts
I wept alone, in pain and in fear
They sentenced me to die
They staked me to the wall
I begged for mercy
They shot me between my eyes
They dumped my body in a shallow grave
They buried me without a shroud
After my death they discovered I was innocent.”

Gorgon Medusa

Another one of those mythical creatures again!

The Gorgon sisters were said to be three very pretty women who lived at the ends of the world beyond the oceans. Gorgon Medusa was a beautiful nymph, with rosy cheeks and lovely hair. She was wooed by many men and envied by many women, including some goddesses. The sea god Poseidon desired her so much it drove him into raping her in the Goddess Athena’s temple. Athena so upset to find this, she turned Gorgon Medusa into the monster she later was, as revenge.
Instead of hair on the head, she later had snakes and her pretty face look so awful that any man who looks at her is turned to stone.
She was turned into a monster because she was raped by the god Poseidon. Isn’t it unfair? And she was later killed by Perseus who was ordered to take back Medusa’s head in order to save his mother. She was beheaded with the help of goddess Athena.  At the time of her death, she was pregnant to Poseidon, and from the blood that spilt from her sprang her offspring, the flying horse known as Pegasus.

stupid me…

Guyz & gals…. wanna listen to something stupid that I did some time back?

I was at Odel with my sister, at the kids’ section, looking through the t-shirts, while bob was running around the kids games stuff and all. And there was this guy, I would call him a “zamaanee guy”. He looked like he’s in his early 20’s, with shoulder length highlighted hair, wearing a really short t-shirt, and his jeans material shorts were as low as like, lower than the upper half of his butt, and I was relieved to see he was decent enough to wear boxers. A nice one at that 😉

Anyway, this guy was bending to look at something on the lower shelves. I just could help but say to my sister, “I just wanna pull his shorts down, wanna bet?” and the dude turned around and lifted his shorts up a bit. Realizing he was Maldivian, we fled the place.

an (almost) unsolved mystery…

Here’s something I found so much humor in.

I was just sitting here minding my own business and my sister comes running to me. She was laughing so hard… she cud hardly breathe… her face all red. Wanna know the reason for all this havoc? She was investigating The Mystery of the Lost Toothbrush… yes… toothbrush. Our Dad and her Father-in-law (hereafter referred as FIL), in their 60’s, they’re both with us, visiting. They share a room while they are here. And guess what, today, after a week of shared accommodation, her FIL says he can’t find his toothbrush. FIL described his toothbrush as “ORAL B, blue in color” and our dad says his as “I can’t remember the brand, its got a white dhandi gandu” both are very forgetful. And my sister looks in the bathroom and everywhere else in the room. It’s nowhere. And then finally she gets our dad to check his toiletries bag, in which she finds a toothbrush. It was in white and blue color, ORAL B. after hours of investigation, it turns out both of them have been using the same brush for a week now… lol … YUCK, I know. One of them had forgotten to bring his own brush! We had a good laugh… *vetti ove henee

Sugar & Spice…
