Eye Candy

So what better than for it being a Chaand Raat and a New Year’s eve for people to go out and buy stuff. Well for most of us (men) the opportunity of doing much more than that at a bazaar is at hand.

What’s behind the idea of buying things so late in the month is something I can’t ever comprehend. But then again, the positive on that day was it wasn’t an Eid ul Fitr ‘Chaand Raat’. Otherwise, the crowds would have been much larger.

Anyways, it was not after sunset that I was out buying things for the expected barrage of guests on the first day of Eid. I was only doing what I was asked to do, willingly, as the next day was to be a ‘me’ day for me. A day when I can, on my own free will, meet and not meet guests that come and drop by the meat they wish to distribute. Thanks for the meat though, people. So at that time of the evening, people or to be more precise, the awam where not out in full force yet.

I did not expect to see a pair of those so early in the day! Their beauty is kinda indescribable, and putting them in words would only end up in doing them injustice! I was also kinda astonished at their ‘out-thereness’, considering it was so cold a weather. They were natural, not even the most qualified doctors can do such jobs. Yes, I am not talking about goats here. I cannot really remember the face that they carried, but heck!

These things can put a smile on any man’s face… and to be really honest, some women might even blush, too! I am a humble, smile, shareef little kid, I smiled and turned my head, amd moved on. Not a smirk, but a smile to help others realize I was only admiring; otherwise considered rude. The smile died out as quickly as it came. Nothing of significance to me – but the loiterers hanging out here and there in small couples could only point and stare. Most of them just useless youth. Nothing better in life than picking/selecting/shortlisting vantage points in a bazaar to carry out their so called surveys! This is one thing that puts me off so bad.

From shop to shop, to stall to stall, they were moving as if they were looking for attention. And attention they did get. Negative mostly, positive only from the shop keepers and salesmen. But then again, thats our society, and we need to change. Only the most educated can understand and realize their place in a society, but still there are exceptions.

One could not save from a second look. Resistance was futile. They are what we call head-turners. I was only glad to know that God made me a man! They were in a class of their own. As I said earlier, they were natural, or congenital if you will. Funny and clumsy, their strut only added to the spectacle that they were.

It might have been a long boring article for many and provocative for some, all I want to say in the end is that usually when a person is out to buy things at the local grocers, the purpose is not to survey, yet things like these do grab your attention and kind of ‘make your day’, even if you are not in search for some Eye Candy. Eye candy for me cause it puts a comical twist to the way I find to appreciate them. It wouldnt take a genious to figure out that I was talking about a pair of ‘hijras‘.

    Recently i watched a drama in which a guy of almost 28 -29 years had some changes in him ,diagnosed later ,the changes in his sex.He was being transformend in to a She .Later at the end of teh drama when he opted to be transformed in to she beacuse of no other than teh choiceof living teh life in between “he and she”, his own family damned him ,scolded him ,for bringing the shame to their family .The end was he shot her self……
    beacsue of non- acceptance of his being by teh society.Although i don’t know about the Probability of any such cases.
    But for sure this made me realise only one thing … How much thankful a normal human being should be …Countless times. for as many times as he breaths at least.

    Anyways Apart from that i liked your writing style.

    Thanks Nosh! :) Also, for sharing that story. I agree, there is very little ‘tolerance’ in our society for naturally occuring defects in a human being. But modern medicine allows man to alter himself in many ways, and that one way is quite out of this world. I cant answer that how and why, but what I can speculate is that the person loses their psychological will or understanding of why he wants to be the other sex and not enjoy their originality.

    Same is the case with Nawazish Ali, which is, as I think, and I am no expert on this issue, a case psychological retardation that has made Mr. Ali express himself in a more outward manner and make money off it. Heck! He has how own late night show!

    What bad would a government censorship do, when the thoughts and speech of a nation are censored by themselves -_-
