Rasna Phenomenon



Not visiting a relative that stays in the same city as you is definitely a bad thing. Let me tell you why.

For starters, there's this phenomenon that occurs almost all the time when you visit them after a long time. Its called the Rasna Phenomenon and it fucking pisses me off.

First of all, I don't like visiting family. I mean its all good and all, but when you don't have time to run to the shop to pick up new jeans, how in this world would you expect me to find time to visit family. Anyways, I don't intend to either cause there's not much you can do once you go there.

Almost always, the minute you enter a relatives house, they'll serve you Rasna or any orange/lime flavored drink. Even before you sit down. So then, you take your glass and sit down on one of the vacant chairs and begin to sip on your drink, casually going about the formalities. While sipping your rasna, you tend to ask stupid questions and pretend to be interested in what they have to say back to you, all the while thinking about how quickly you can get out of there.

Being fake is just not my thing. I cant take those stupid questions that don't mean anything and that are asked just cause you end up being in the same room as them. Don't really know if any of this makes any sense, but that Rasna thing has got to die. We Indians need to find something better to do other than eat and drink when we visit our relatives.

The next time my folks ask me to join them, I am just going to pretend I am sick or something.. Bah!!

What's especially alarming, is the complete disregard with which they handle the water-concentrate proportions... yeesh!!

Heheh...My relatives in my native town always serve a bottomless extra-large glass of coffee with jaggery in it! Thats got to be the top-most reason families dont stick together too long these days!

i dont mind the relatives part since most of them drop into my place. i go occasionally and usually to the ones i know quite well. and if i need to eat or drink somethin, i help myself with their refrigerator (i tend to ask permission sometimes). i actually dont mind my visits cause i really dont get bugged with their blah blah thingees.
