Abuses break no bones

When I was in a hostel in Allahabad University in the early 1960s we used to have 'gaali' competitions late at night with boys in the neighbouring hostel. MC and BC were only the minor abuses.

After about an hour of hurling filthiest abuses a couple of boys from a third hostel adjudged the winner, and the losing team had to give a dinner next day to the winners.

I narrated this today to a Pakistani friend on whatsapp. He said he never abused anyone.

I replied that this is what is wrong with you Pakistanis. Instead of hurling abuses, which do not do any physical harm to anyone, you prefer to hurl bombs and shoot bullets at each other

Hari Om.
