Romance

Once, a mouse fell in love with a Lioness. It was obviously not easy wooing the lady. Look at what all he did.

One day, he met her on the way in the Indian ishtyle. And as becomes a hero of Indian films, he eve-teased her to proclaim his love. Said, “ I love you Sh-Sh-Sh-Sherni.”
She said, “Abey, Apna size toe dekh. Jaan Pyari hai ke nahi?”
The mouse said, “Tujh mein rab dikhta hai, Yaara main kya karoon.”

…and ran away.
But he could not forget her. One day he deliberately landed in her path and said, "I love you, Sh-Sh-Sherni.”
Sherni was angry, “ Abey, apni aukaat bhool gaya kya?”
The mouse smiled and said, “ Aree pagli, aukaat pey mat jaa, confidence dekh confidence.”

… and ran away.

…and has been running since.

The Lioness wants to catch him.
Nah, she is not offended. She has never had such an expressive lover ever.
But the mouse doesn’t know that.
He has been running for his life ever since.

Himalayan adventurer said...

This story has been told in many ways, printable and non-printable, but the punch in your post lies in its disclaimer. Won't ask you why you chose to post this story.

churningthewordmill said...

lol@"Aree pagli, aukaat pey mat jaa, confidence dekh confidence.” good one hai ji. :d

Sidhusaaheb said...

I've been wondering which of the super-star's (whom the 'mouse' appears to have been based upon) movies had a leading lady so much bigger than him.

:D

Mai said...

OK, dear Bhenji, you have teased those of us not fluent in Punjabi long enough!

Please, please, please, what did Mouse and Lioness actually say to each other?

(Being a lioness of sorts myself, I can imagine what I would say if a mouse came courting me.)

Mai said...

Come to think of it, I call the squirrelly guy who lives upstairs from us "Mouse," as in "Are you a man or a mouse?"

Spare me!

Sal said...

Probably the mouse is running scared of the 'lions' around.
Btw, was it Mickey Mouse?!
Cheers,
Sal

Manish Raj said...

I know the moral of story.

Even a mouse can win a (micro-soft) lioness heart; Mouse manages to open several 'Windows'.

Right Lioness ?

Solilo said...

Ha! Ha! Tujhme Rab dikhte hai. I am laughing like crazy.

Poor mouse he doesn't know that Sherni wants to tell him " Kuch Kuch hota hai choohe..tum nahin samjhoge".

Balvinder Singh said...

Oh there it has appeared, so invited twice. But where are you ??

chandni said...

LOL!

Devika said...

Its a fable. Its not a fable. Its a fable. Its not a fable. Its a fable. Its not a fable. Its a fable. Its not a fable. Its a fable. Its not a fable. Its a fable. Its not a fable. Its a fable. Its no.... still trying to decide. And like Dhindsa wondering whether I saw the two in action or not?

nidhi said...

hahaha....tusi great ho :)

Mampi said...

LifeBegins-What secret ji?? Hehe.

Jasdeep-Passed ur request to the mouse.

HitchWriter-Yeah, dont wonder, just have fun.

Gazal-Theek theek laga ley yaar. aisa nahi hai.

Mama-Mouse is having fun.

Sukumbho-U knew this too??

Usha-Thanks. I thought it was too stupid to post, but given the response, I am glad I did.

Anonymous-Bhai saab, ina biased kahnu hona. Agley da mann keeta hindi bol lee, main ta nahi bolee.

Z-Now you know...

Mithe-Hidden meanings, Bah!

Oreen-Lioness can tell better.

D-Thank you, and LOL.

Mampi said...

Mahesh-Thank God, I remembered in time. Lukky mouse.

Monika-Thanks my dear.

Himalayan Adventurer-You are a true friend in not trying to find meanings.

Roop-Your laughter is so important.

Guri-Btw, who said Sherni went to Mouse because Sher budha ho gaya? Sherni is sherni cos she is sherni, not cos she is sher di sherni. Have read Jasdeep's poem before you did. Stop looking for meanings.

MIP-Thank you.

Ritu-His jaikaar and wishes conveyed to Mouse.

Sucharita-Well said my dear.

Veena-Am sure Gazal wouldnt have thought it would let her secret out.

Balli-Thank you. It didnt appear promptly cos I was in Dalhousie and posted it from there. Your award means a lot to me. Thanks again.

Usha-Will go to pick it up.

IHM- Glad you liked it.

Mampi said...

Mandy - :)

SS-No meaning, interpretations please. :)

Mai-Will email you the meanings. I emailed Z also. And this mouse is a real mouse, not the man-mouse.

Sal-No, its a regular mouse, no mickey, no ticky.

Manish-This was a sweet interpretation. Mahesh loved it.

Solilo-This was a befitting reply to the mouse's songs. Hahaha.

Chandu-Me or the mouse?

Devika-My loud laughter is also fire-brigade inviting kinds.

Quirky Indian-Hehehe, no meaning, no relevance. Just have fun with the story.

Pinku-Stop wondering. Sir Chakraa jayega.

Nidhi- :)
