A different kinda foe-cuss

What makes you feel worse - when someone you're nice to is nasty to you, or when someone you're nasty to is nice to you?

Moral of the story -- be nice to your enemies.

Make them feel like crap.

:D

Inder said...

why unnecessary complications??? life will be a lot simpler if things are kept straight.

dosthon se dosthi and dushmanon se dushmani.

my enemy expects and deserves my enmity. he would feel disappointed if i be nice with him. and i shouldn't let him be disappointed.

Janefield said...

LOL @ Inder's comment :D

haan fultu gandhigiri ka asar abhi tak chal raha hai :)) you just summarised lage raho's script in 3 lines....LOL...

#Oxymoron,
Baap re... you dunno the rules? Only one medal per person :P

//anywayz, its the second one which kills!

I think so too. :)

#Fafridi,
Wah wah! Nobel peace prize? Wah wah! Waise yeh cash prize hai na? ;)

#Ipanema Gal,
Either ways :P

#Ruchi,

#Inder,
//life will be a lot simpler if things are kept straight.

Well, I believe this is an even simpler option - you treat everyone the same. Kya bolta? :D

//and i shouldn't let him be disappointed.

Arre wohi toh! If you disappoint him instead of living up to his expectations, he will be confused and disoriented... and you will win muahahaha! :D

#Janefield,
Areee kya bol rahi ho??? :O I'm a BEEEEG fan of Abbas Tyrewala! Uski insult na karo behen! :P

Iday said...

Boy - u really get stuck with something dont u :)
there were a series of nostalgic, moody posts sometime back.
And now, there are a series of "Good Will" posts, after u saw Lage Raho

okie - i know u'd be curious!
I havent seen the movie still...

The answer to the question is the former, atleast for me.
If someone i'm nasty to is nice to me, i can apologize easily and move on :)
But if someone i'm nice to is nasty to me, it affects me badly :(

Sakshi said...

OH........pura Gandhigiri advice de rahi hai Bhai..
I like it.
I am going to be extra nice to ppl I don't like.. before I fell them with a devastating blow :)
And sometime ppl are in a bad mood and say nasty stuff.. Dil pe kyon lene ka?

Inder said...

hahah... isn't being nice to the enemy and winning over him a shortcut to victory?

jeena hai shaan se, marna hai shaan se. and 'shaan' is in fighting it out till the end, like the gladiators :P

dosthi ho tho, use dil se nibayenge
dushmani ho tho, use bhi dil se nibayenge :)

okay. jokes apart, it is really great to be nice to the enemies. we gain nothing by being hostile towards others. may be a touch of cruel satisfaction. but nothing worthwhile.

cardamom said...

dharmu said...

are bhai, aise tho enemyji ka waat lagega na???

apun bhi try karega, par enemyji kahan milega???? yahaan tho log hi nahi milte.**sigh**

Harshi said...

Hm..... *bubbling thoughts in my mind*. Nice, thought provoking post :-).

I think holding negative thoughts bring more harm to us (it gives me ulcers yaar lol)..so better to let it go, somehow. Maybe put a positive twist to why the person behaved that way or said a certain thing. And if you can't let it go, talk to them and clear things up further.

If someone I have negative feelings towards, is NICE to me, (genuinely nice, not sarcastically and diplomatically nice...:-), main toh pighal hee jaaoongi :-)).

We shd be nice to everyone. If not for them, but for us. For our own peace of mind, and for our own clear conscience. I think tit for tat only brings momemtary relief. But in the end, we might end up hating ourselves more.

I think negative thoughts and feelings are a sign that something needs attention. So it's a good thing that such situations give us a chance to grow and understand things and people better. Ooh, so easy to say this now. It takes a lot of courage and wisdom to follow it.

Rohit Talwar said...

Enemies? Tapakwana hai kisi ko?

Janefield said...

harshi makes good sense only :) we should be nice to others but it should come from the heart. putting on a sweet smile and delivering killer blows is anything but genuine! its deceitful even :(

and sash...i also like that tyrewala dude and appreciate his talent...script i wrote kya? mishtake became! i meant story...tune toh poori picharr ki angle teen line mein likhi, maine kuch nahin kya :P story of munnabhai bringing builder to book and to his knees!!

HOTWINTER said...

I was/am always nice to people who treated me nastily from the time I was born.

shekhar said...

Baat to bilkul ek laakh ki hai....lekin....


TUSSI HAMAARE BLOG VICH AATE HI NAHI HOOOOOOOOOOOOOO !!!!!!!!

sneha said...

'meethi churi' always works!!

mysorean said...

That's like an sms I received sometime back.

What's more painful? A person you trusted, hurting you? Or a person you hurted, loving you?
[Well, I have retained the sms as it is so that the message is not lost out!]

Like a good MBA, let me say It depends... you know! ;)

qsg said...

Touche! :)

Sudipta Chatterjee said...

Oh yeah? Next time I'll be here as a MAC, and will see what you post :D

You know, it makes sense to follow your policy only when you know that the enemy has a 'head' and a 'heart'. You can touch them by these methods. Otherwise, I believe in crap for crap :D

The Inquisitive Akka said...

I am still thinking abt it. Can't seem to be able to make up my mind :)

The Lonely Traveller said...

Sayesha beti...
Munnabhai ha bahut asar hua hai tumpar... ;-)
Mogambo khush hua.......Muahahahahahahaa!!!

Ab everyone will be nice to me ;-)

Restless Rain said...

//Be nice to your enemies

Not easy at all! Takes alot of logical thinking, and I think wisdom too.....

I dunno tho, both situations make me feel bad. I guess I'll have to choose when someone I'm nice to is nasty to me.

Sayesha said...

#Iday,
Hmmm... interesting... for me, it's the reverse... if someone I'm nice to is nasty to me, I can dismiss the person and move on, but if someone I'm nasty to is nice to me, I become the 'bad person' to myself and it's difficult to dismiss yourself and move on, isn't it? :)

#Sakshi,
Sahi bola boss! :)

#Inder,
Yep yep... :)

#Cardamom,
Arre bhai ke dimaag mein chemical locha ho rela hai re :P

#Satish,
Except me! :|

#Nirwa,
:D

#Sudeep,
Haan haan tu hi mera sabse bada dushman jo thehra... tabhi I'm so nice to you :P

#Dharmu,
Hahahaah! Good luck with the enemy-hunt! :P

#Harshi,
//If someone I have negative feelings towards, is NICE to me, (genuinely nice, not sarcastically and diplomatically nice...:-), main toh pighal hee jaaoongi :-))

Hehehehe... me too! :P

//We shd be nice to everyone. If not for them, but for us. For our own peace of mind, and for our own clear conscience. I think tit for tat only brings momemtary relief. But in the end, we might end up hating ourselves more.

Amazing words, Hashi babe! One more time - please start a blog? :)

#Rohit,
Hehehehe :P

#Janefield,
Haan Harshi ne dumdaar baat boli na? :) And totally agree that it should be from the heart :)

#Hotwinter,
Errr.... ok :|

#Shekhar,
Arre tusi bulaate hi nahin ho! :P

#Sneha,
Hahaha! Meethi chhuri? Nahin yaar, there's no chhuri here, only mithai... your enemies will feel like crap and then eventually be nice to you too... this is a strategy with a heart :)

#Adi,
Hahaha! Yeah! :)

#QSG,
:)

#Sudipta,
Oye! I've never been mean to a MAC, kya? It's always them who're mean to me :)

#Akka,

#Lonely Traveller,
Hahaha! Piyela hai kya tu? :D

#Restless Rain,
//Not easy at all! Takes alot of logical thinking, and I think wisdom too.....

Totally agree. But I really wanna strive for it. For my own peace of mind :)
