What is it that makes her break all her ties ? Walk into Tamanna’s shoes to experience her transformation to Black Coffee- Dark and Strong.

What is it about? 

Black Coffee is a story of a girl named Tamannah who has big dreams. Dreams such as marrying the love of her life, becoming a Chartered Accountant. But destiny has other plans for her and she gets married to Sarthak. Can first love be forgotten so easily? What happens when it appears again after few years, things are surely to be different then, especially if you are married. Join Tamannah in her journey of finding herself, and her ambitions. 

LazyScoop Review:

The book started of well with an interesting prologue where Tamannah is asking for a black coffee and explaining how her personality is changed over the years due to whatever she has gone through. How she has become strong and dark, thus building the reader’s expectation that the story which is going to unfold later is going to be moving, and totally inspiring. 


“Expectations are root cause of hurt.” they say, and that’s pretty much what happened when I read this book till the end. Maybe expected it to be really amazing, so I was disappointed. Though, the story isn’t bad. Actually story is average, short and simple. But it totally lacks depth, the writer says that the incidents happened, but actually doesn’t potray it. 

E.g – ‘We shared a different chemistry altogether, and with time, our friendship was also blossoming and flourishing’ is what is written about a character in the book. But, how that chemistry was different? How was their frienship blossoming isn’t potrayed in the book. Which makes the narrative shallow. 

If the story had been written with more depth and characterization, it would have really connected well with the reader. I wouldn’t have minded if the book was a thick one with profundity.

The initial story of how Raj and Tamannah meet for the first time is written well and was interesting to read. In the ending chapters, I felt Tamannah’s character untrustworthy. No matter how much love you’ve got for your first love, you can’t cheat your husband and claim to be strong. The writing loses it’s grip after few chapters. 

LazyScoop Verdict:

Black Coffee is a book which should be read with open mind and without expecting any motivational content, it’s a good one time read which is fast paced and can be a decent read while travelling.

Upcoming Book Review: White Smoke by Nikhil Mahajan. Stay Tuned! 

Turning 24!

Life is interesting, With each passing year it brings with it some wonderful experiences, some of which are experienced for the first time. And those experiences bring along with it some confusion as well as excitement! Here’s my friend Artee Malave, sharing in her own words, an incident which made a flood of questions and thoughts flow in her mind! Some questions every girl turning 24 has to face.

Yes, Turning 24 and preparing myself for the question “Beta, Shaadi kab kar rahi ho?”

Few days back I was having coffee while relaxing on my favourite  swing in the balcony & I heard my mom chatting with some random relative on phone. As soon as she hung up the phone, she ran to me and said “Guess what?” with a huge smile on her face. Seeing the blank expression on my face, she decided to finally tell me that “Mujhe(by that I mean me :D) rishta aaya hai.” For her it was moment of celebration & for me the coffee had suddenly started tasting more bitter! A little bit in trauma, those last words of mom kept repeating in my brain and that sudden realisation of growing up made me feel sick.

Mom later on was busy with her daily chores, I was still in the balcony trying to recover from the incident that has just happened. There were so many thoughts going on in my brain:

Oh my god! Marriage? What about my career!! I don’t even have my dream job yet…I will need few more years to settle down…I have never thought about the kind of guy I want to marry!

Deciding your life partner is a tough task. (I have been through some tough situations like deciding whether Oreo is better or Hide n Seek 😄 ). Lame jokes apart, being born and brought up with a family who gave me enough freedom, will I get the same freedom after marriage? Will I get to meet my friends after marriage too? Will he be okay with my male friends? Will he understand that my career is the most important thing in my life? Will he give me my space? Will he be able to handle my crazy mood swings? Will he understand that I can start dancing absolutely for no reason? ( this one was irrelevant, But I do start dancing when I am bored :D) And the questions poping up in my brain never stopped.

The girl who has been single for 23 years is always a bit confused about the kind of life partner she want, Whether she wants to be with a guy who is introvert or she wants to be with a guy who is extrovert, Whether a guy who stays calm in every situation or is super excited all the time. And, deciding this while offering a plate of samosa is the most difficult thing of all ( i.e Arrange marriage). Arrange marriage has always managed to scare the shit out of me. Everytime the people I know have got married, I always ask them how did they decide that this guy is the one, eveytime I got answers like “it just clicks” ( I wonder whether she married a human or a computer mouse) or “you just have this feeling that he is the one” (still searching …what exactly she meant.)

For me it was scary because I don’t understand how do people get married to the guy who they are not in love with!! Elder’s always say “U will eventually fall in love.” & I always argue “what if we don’t eventually fall in love?”, “what if we start hating each other?”, “what if he is not as interesting as I thought?” I never really got the answer for this questions. May be that’s why the divorce rate is increasing at such high pace. Back to the question, Meeting someone once (or may be twice or thrice) is not sufficient to decide whether you are going to spend rest of the life with this guy!! I know there are various articles on such topics “if guy has this 10 qualities marry him” but does this all really help? not to me atleast. This articles are based on generalisations but every person is different from other. And, my question remains still unanswered.

Evertime you come up with questions relating to Arrange marriage, people out there always suggest you to marry a guy who is rich or has his own flat. Really is having enough money sufficient to decide if He is the one? I always thought it in a different way, I think you should look for things that are going to stay permanent like his behaviour, the way he treats you, the sets of discipline he follows in his life because money is a temporary factor, its very important to know what kind of human being he is!!

Finally I would like to say Marry a guy Who learns with you, trusts you, encourages you and Respects you!!

P.S: –

Please don’t ask me where and how to find such a guy because I am still searching…

Keep Searching,

Artee Malave

New Book launch Alert: One Indian Girl By Chetan Bhagat! 

Chetan Bhagat has made so many people like me passionate about reading. His first book I read was 2 States, though I am not saying he writes something super great stuff, but you can’t deny the fact that pre-chetan Bhagat books, indian book sales were facing a down trend. You can give the credit to his marketing strategy, his writing skills, his imagination, or whataver, but its a fact that he is one of the top most writers in India and his books always reach the best seller benchmarks. Doesn’t matter how much scoopwhoop and other people criticize him, you can’t avoid reading his books, and even if you do, you’ll be watching a movie based on the book after a period of time.

Copyright- Chetan Bhagat

So, Chetan Bhagat, has written yet another book called – One Indian Girl, as we all know. As the title suggests, the book is written from a girl’s perspective. It’s the first time that Chetan Bhagat has written the story with female first person, it would be super interesting how he would’ve done that. It would be a successful attempt by him if the female readers identify themselves with the character. 

Here is the official teaser of the book-

Here is the summary: 

Hi, I’m Radhika Mehta and I’m getting married this week.

I work at Goldman Sachs, an investment bank. Thank you for reading my story. However, let me warn you. You may not like much.

One, I make a lot of money.

Two, I have an opinion on everything.

Three, I have had a boyfriend before. OK, maybe two.

Now if I were a guy, you’d be cool with it. Since I am a girl, these things don’t make me likeable, do they?

Seems like the book is aimed at changing the way society looks at women.

WhatsApp Fools.



It was 2009 when I passed my SSC, few weeks later I got a cool new feature phone. It was obviously not android. (Because it wasn’t launched in India by then, duh!) But it had all the features of a high end device like Bluetooth, camera, etc. But the only fascinating one was SMS- Not a whole new feature I know. But it was amazing. I used it to chat all day long with my friends, even crushes. (Plural? Hmm.) Jokes, Shayris, Quotes, simple morning to good night wishes. I remember recharging with a special sms pack which allowed to send 100 free SMS’s per day, and trust me, even that felt few at that time. I maintained a dairy to write all the SMS’s which I think are worth treasuring. I was stupid enough to not know that one day SMS is gonna die.

The best thing about the SMSing was the suspense! (Suspense?) Ya! Coz there wasn’t any last seen, or seen ticks. There was this curiosity as to whether the recipient (Crush/ Girlfriend, whoever it was!) has really read our texts or not? And if yes, “why is she not replying? Has she read my texts? I got the delivery report though! I shouldn’t have sent her that compliment about how beautiful she was looking today, she must be thinking I am trying to flirt with her or something, shits!!” These were some of the common thoughts every sms using teenager went through. And after few minutes of glancing at the phone screen, nail biting, praying etc. when all of a sudden our phone beeped with a new message, it made our heart have that one loud beat of excitement and happiness!!

But achanak, one day, android was launched and it became a household name, easy and snappy interface, speed computing and unlimited apps to download made it a must have feature in a smartphone. And thus after a year or so, whatsapp came into this world, the option of sending music, videos, pictures and texts all for free without having any MMS mess was awesome! Now we use it so regularly that this feature seems normal, But initially the idea was superb and impressive!!But, Whatsapp even brought many problems with it, such as the root cause of many breakups i.e Last Seen at _ and even if you hide it, people suspect your loyalty wondering why we had the need to hide our last seen. Thus gradually, SMS was sent in a state of comma, where people now use it only to receive the network offers. Now a person can live without drinking water for a day, but not without whatsapp.



And now with whatsapp comes some funny yet irritating text messages. I am sure even you all might’ve received some of them. Read below!!


“Om Sai Ram, Jai Sai Ram.” This message is sent directly from Shirdi, please don’t break the chain, Forward it to 10 contacts and within next 10 minutes your wish would be granted. If you ignore, you’ll die tomorrow.”
Initially I used to reply with Fuck off to the sender, but later on I just thought of ignoring.


“Whatsapp is now charging money, If you want free whatsapp, then please pass on this messages to 10 people and your whatsapp logo will turn red and it will be free for you for the lifetime.”

I had tried this when I was new on whatsapp, not because I cared for it to be free, but because I liked the idea of cool red logo instead of green. Later nor did the logo color changed and nor was I ever charged!


There are special health related messages too which I receive these days:
‘Do NOT eat Kurkure, as it contains plastic. If you don’t believe, burn it and see, it will burn with smoke and melt like plastic. Also don’t eat Mentos after drinking coke or Thumbs up, the carbon di oxide in this drink combines with the preservatives in Mentos and converts into cyanide, a deadly chemical which will kill you in few seconds. Kindly share and save your friends.’
Immediately next day, I drank thumps up and ate Mentos, trust me, I am still alive! By the way, Do they have any shortage of ingredients or herbs that they’ll also add up plastic to their recipe? We idiots are so scared, that we actually tend to believe in this rubbish. Apply some common sense, If Kurkure really has plastic in it, wouldn’t the government take any measures just like they took for Maggi? Every public food, whether it be Jams, Wafers, every eatable goes under testing by the authorized food departments, before entering the market for sale. And it’s also proven by many Food specialists that the smoke coming out of a burnt kurkure stick is because of the preservatives and starch, not the plastic!




‘Worker with AIDS from the company has contaminated’ Dumbass!! You mean, Frooti such a big company, hires workers to crush mangoes and flush its juice in the bottle? So you think they don’t use technology, machines to make the juice and put it in bottle? Standing ovation of my tallest finger to your intelligence.




I received this message long back, I called the number to confirm if it’s true. The receiver shouted at me saying, ‘Hazaar baar bola idhar call mat karo, samajhta nai hai kya!! Beep. Beep.’ And he hung up. I called him up again to return his beeps. You can try it too. And tell me one thing, if the guy is really blind, how the fuck did he manage to type this message?


Honey? So all the pharmaceutical companies are just wasting their money in finding cure for Ebola. This text composer must be Bsc. Failed scientist.


Even google, NASA and other organizations will say, ‘What the fuck?’ after reading these texts. Height of bullshit.


Special Modi government appreciating fake messages:-




No offence to Modi government but these messages are as fake as Anushka sharma’s duck-lips in PK.




There’s no such slogan made by Modi, and for your all kind information, Telegram is not an Indian company, it’s a German company. If you are such a patriotic person, you can use Hike.




This message is specially posted by guys in whatsapp groups, so that they can impress other girls by showing that they really care about women safety. By the way, this law has not been passed on by Modi government, it’s already been there from many years. You can google it to know.


That’s a futuristic technology I must say!


Free talktimes, and gift vouchers:




Some people are really so generous to share this free recharge messages.



And Amazon gift voucers? Amazon completed 10 years? Lol, its there for 20 years, not 10.
Its human tendency, we believe in what we read more easily then what we hear or see. So, whenever we receive such messages, we tend to believe them. But we are only being fooled by someone who has no other work to do than compose them. Ignore these texts, stop spreading fake information about health, knowledge or companies. It takes lot of efforts from employees, workers and everyone to build a trust for a brand, by forwarding it, we are only degrading a company’s goodwill. Definitely, forward the messages if you’ve experienced it by yourself, but don’t be a fool to forward it blindly without confirming the news and source of it. Save yourself, from being a Whatsapp fool. 😉
Hey, by the way, this below message is quite true.


Just kidding.

The Shitiness Rises!

Get Sponsored by Big Brands


Helloz Fellas!! I know you’re been missing me for long for not writing any article. ( I mean, I am assuming so.) I am humbly not sorry about it. Dudes, I’ve got a life too, I can’t keep writing all the time. And honestly accepting, I had a writer’s block since long. The sleepy cells in my brain were wondering about different topics I should write upon, and ultimately, the laziest of them all shouted- ‘fuck it man, just don’t write for some time’, I listened to that cell.

But the writer keeda in me never dies. Whether I am travelling or whether I am watching funny videos on YouTube or when I am in a hypnotised state of mind staring at my crush or whether I am scratching my arm after a mosquito bite at night, every bloody thing reminds me of writing! Though one thing is weird, in my class’ tests, when I am about to write, Some unusual activity in my brain stops me from writing the answers, that lazy cell shouts-‘Kuch padke aaya hota toh likh paata kamine.’

Well, writing reminds me of the movie Happy Ending. I saw it the other day for saif and illeana. Being a Saif Ali Khan fan, I can even watch Agent Vinod with astonishing enthusiasm. It’s a good movie, and I got quite related to the main character Yudi, because of the same writers block thing. It might not have boomed high at the box office, but it surely brings a smile at its climax. (I am talking about Happy Ending, not AgentVinod) (Clarifying for Alia Bhatt, in case she reads my article) So if you got nothing to do this weekend, except watching comedy nights with kapil and getting over the smelly shit of Ek Ghante ka Maha episodes of daily soaps, you can watch this movie. By the way don’t download it from Torrents, buy original DVDs. (Just Kidding!)

Wese, what an amazing was the last weekend, wasn’t it? The grand Finale of Bigg Boss 8, and what anamazingly amazing season it was,Thoroughly entertaining with four Namunas- Gautam, Upen, Ali,Rahul, and the rest of the crazy girls in the house! (All girls in the world are crazy.) (No offense.)

alia 1

By the way for Alia-

Namuna- A hindi word used by me in this article just to kill the lack of funny sounding words. (noun) (Verb) (Adjective) (Use it as whatever the hell you want to)

The season was quite predictable too, for even an infant person who might have come on earth hours back might have predicted Gautam to be the winner. He was such an exceptional personality, the song itself was a rage, ‘we love, we love Gauti!’


I just wish he doesn’t give half of the prize money to that baldy…that taklu…what’s his name? Starts with P…shit I forgot!

Anyways, another new angle to the show was UPMA, I loved watching Upen flirting with Karishma, it was no less than a movie scene. Farah khan, hosted the show quite well, to be honest, I think it was better than Salman.(To which I know many Salman khan fans among you may disagree insanely)

Insanity reminds me of the talk of the town, I mean the talk of the web – The AIB knockout Roast. Well, no matter in how bold letters they disclaimed that the language used in it is filthy, and only 18+ people should watch it, even a 15 year dude must have watched it. I watched it out of pure curiosity, It was good, not a complete laugh riot, but kinda funny. Some jokes on Alia Bhatt and Karan Johar were really funny. Even the roasting of Ashish shakya and Raghu Ram were cool. And to the people who haven’t watched it, ‘ It was just a show, where legs were pulled of Ranveer and Arjun in filthy language in a humorous way.’

I read a news headline saying, Head of the MNS party’s film wing, (don’t remember what his name was!) said that if karan Johar, Arjun and Ranveer singh don’t apologise for the knockout, their movies would be banned from release in India. And why? Because they used foul language in the show. But hey hello!!!!!! I’ve seen many politicians (Whose name I can’t say), (No it’s not voldemort.) give filthiest possible bad words in their bhaashans. Now how come these politicians aren’t banned yet?


This only shows how hypocrite our society is. It’s like an already fat girl telling other fat girls to be slim or a murderer educating other people about anger management techniques. Gross!! Seriously!

Speaking of hypocrisy- If Alia Bhatt by unknown circumstances, unknown algorithms and web shits, stumbles upon my blog-‘Hey, Hypocrisy isn’t related to Hippopotamus and Chris Gayle.Hypocrisy is a completely different term. Just clarifying, you’re welcome.’


These days when I come home tired after long hours of lectures or some other activities, I tune into music channels on TV with a cup of coffee to refresh myself, but then unfortunately Mallika sherawat’s upcoming movie’s songs starts playing, where she dances singing – ‘Mere ghaagre ke liye,ghamasaan machi hai.’ And then I feel like banging that cup of coffee on the screen! Seriously mallika? What’s so special about your ghagra? Ghamaasan machi hai? I just hope malllika is not under the impression that Obama visited India to discuss about her Ghagra. Who the fuck other than KRK cares about your ghagra or whatever!

Oh yeah! Yaad aaya, Its Puneet Issar I was talking about!!

By the way, Valentine’s day is the highlight of many people this month, and for Single people, it’s just another day to curse for being single or some single even celebrate it for the freedom they enjoy. A friend of mine had a recent break up. I can’t stop wondering how his valentine’s day is gonna end up this year. Ya, quite mean I am.


On a serious note, keep up the spirit for blogikpratik and thanks for all the visits by known and unknown readers, you all mean much more to me than numbers. I was thinking of changing the blog theme, should I? If you have any suggestions, mail me or write at And even if you don’t have any suggestions, you can still pour your appreciations in the comments, I am greedy for it. In the meantime, wish you all a very Happy Valentine’s day!! Even good wishes for the other chocolate, teddy,propose, etc days which come as a complimentary package with it!

Stay happy! Stay Cool!! Stay tuned!!! 😉


P.S – 1. Yes, the title of this article was inspired from The Dark Knight Rises. No similarities, just something is rising in both the cases.

True Liars.

Get Sponsored by Big Brands


Kalyuga, an era of the liars! I don’t know how much you all are in mythological creeds but Indian mythology is extremely fascinating, if one develops interest to know about it. According to Wikipedia, Kali Yuga (Age of the Demon/Kali) is the last of the four stages the world goes through as a part of the cycle of Yugas. Kali here means the apocalyptic demon kali and not the goddess Kali, The other ages are Satya Yuga, Treta Yuga and Dvapara Yuga.

According to the records of Surya Siddhanta, Kali Yuga began at midnight ( 00:00 ) on 14th of January 3102 BC in the proleptic Gregorian calendar. This date is also considered the date when Lord Krishna left Earth to return to his Abode.


So, Welcome to our Era, the era of Liars, where even the liars lie that they aren’t liars!

“ Never lie, it’s too bad. God punishes all the liars and lying makes you an abominate person. ’’ Haven’t our respective mothers have taught this to us when we were kids. And we actually believed it. And because of this, we used to honestly raise our hands in school when teacher used to ask, ‘Who haven’t done the homework?’, We used to raise our hand because we wanted to avoid God’ s punishment, but unfortunately, we used to end up getting punished by the teacher!

It’s then, as we grew up, we got to know, Lying may or may not be good morally, that’s another issue, but being too honest is like inviting the Bull to hit our ass!

Even I am a liar according to me, because I sometimes lie when I feel I need to (Not often, sometimes!). And I am honest enough to accept it. Even you are a liar, If anyone in this beautiful spiritual world says that he never lies, trust me, he is the biggest liar ever!


Remember our instantly made up reasons when our classes or college’s attendance dept. called us to know the reason of our absenteeism, while we were on a mini vacation in the middle of the term. And honestly we never gave our parent’s phone no. while fulfilling the admission form, so that they would be unable to contact our parents. (But God knows, how they used to get our parents number!) It happened so many times that we’ve given the most lunatic reasons in the most subtle way, that they believed it. Even in college, while submitting the assignments, the professors used to get the most creatively made reasons for not attending their lectures. Sometimes I wonder, maybe they also know that all these people are just lying but it’s just that they do their duty of asking.

Let’s recall some of the most used reasons by us in the past:

  1. ‘ I was not well, I had malaria/ Typhoid(For a 3 to 4 days’ vacation but involved risk as they may have asked for medical certificate)/ Chicken Pox(For a 15 days’ vacation)/ Diarrhea(for holiday of one or two days)
  2. ‘Had gone for my aunt/ Uncle’s wedding.’ this reason had always worked for me. They never really asked, ‘how many Uncles/ Aunts do you have in total?’
  3. ‘Guests had come’, some silly people gave this reason, This is the most stupid reason ever, I think. What the hell you had to do if guests had come?

There were some guys in my college who were professionals in lying, they used to come up with reasons even more convincing and unique than Rakhi Sawant’s face.


If you scrutinize properly, every person on this earth is a liar. Our era has been rightfully named as Kalyaga: The era of liars. From Kids to parents, from police to Politicians, from teachers to students, From film makers to actors, From employers to employees, simply everyone!

But you know what the irony is, in this era of liars, the honest people who never cover up their lies suffer the most. The liars point out them as a liar. Yes, this happened with me once, and so I know it. Anyways, that’s not to be discussed now.

Look at all the brands and all the ads.

Thumbs Up: Drink it and you only get a nasal burp, if that’s what they call toofani, then God, they need to know what storm actually means. The tagline itself is a lie, ‘aaj kuch toofani karte hai’, they should change it to ‘aaj kuch too funny karte hai.’

Tata Sky: ‘Isko laga daala toh life Jhingalala.’ There’s nothing Jhingalala about it, it’s the same set top box with some overrated features which they claim can make your life jhingalala. By the way, What does exactly Jhingalala mean?

Set Max: ‘Deewana bana de.’ I don’t know if I should count it as lie or not. Because Deewana means Crazy and Set max definitely makes me crazy with it playing all the bullshit flop south Indian movies dubbed in Hindi. The worst part of such movies are the songs, which are also dubbed in Hindi and with lyrics so quirky and cheap that sometimes you feel like banging your head on the wall. And yup, how can we forget the most played movie on Set Max, ‘Sooryavansham.’

Internet Husband

Reliance 3G: ‘Lightening fast’, and here I am fed up with its turtle speed. They should really get to know the actual speed of lightening.

Dominos: ‘Khushiyon ki Home Delivery’ Arre Asli khushi toh tab hogi when they deliver it after 30 minutes and give it us for free. ( Lol, ye kuch zyaada ho gaya, na? )

Not just Brands, but even Actors are step ahead in lying. :-

Tushaar Kapoor: When his movie Chaar din ki chaandni was to release a year ago, he said in an interview that this movie has the same entertainment, entertainment and entertainment which The Dirty Picture had and it’s definitely going to be one of the biggest hit I ever had in my career. The movie released and was declared a super flop. (Many of you might not even know that a movie like this exists, and I don’t blame you.), (And hey, some of you may wonder, why was I watching Tusshar Kapoor’s interview, honesty, I stumbled upon it while changing the channels.)


Salman Khan: ‘I am a virgin.’ Do I really need to explain now that in what terms it’s a lie?


Mallika Sherawat: ‘I am not at all obsessed with Hollywood.’ She has thrown in this dialogue in almost every interview, and yet she keeps on trying her luck with Hollywood movies, which fail miserably.

Actors also lie in interviews that they don’t care about winning an Oscar. Every actor does. It’s obvious, I may be wrong with this one, but still it seems that way.

Remember Govinda’s movie, Kyunki main Jhoot Nahi Bolta? In the second half of the movie, Govinda’s Son prays to the falling star that his father should only utter truth, even while attempting to lie, And that’s what happens, he keeps on uttering the truth even when he wants to lie.

Just Imagine, If this magic takes place in lives of some of the famous people of the country, then what truths they’ll utter?

Akshay Kumar– ‘Yes I Have a Secret Crush on sonakshi Sinha, I feel like I should’ve waited for some years and married her rather.’

Rahul Gandhi– ‘Congress is very corrupt, And I love watching Chhota Bheem, That bheem looks shoooo cute.’


Salman Khan– ‘I find it funny how people go for my scriptless movies. I’ll continue fooling them and make records of 300 crores and above. And each of my movie will have a song on ‘Naina’- Maast Masst do Nain, Dagabaaz Naina, Kaatilana Naina, Assh*le Naina, Fu*king Naina, Shit Naina, Fart Naina, Kutti Naina, harami Naina, etc.'(Again, kuch zyaadaho gaya na? I don’t care.)

Himesh Reshammiya– ‘I know I cannot act well.’

Kareena Kapoor– ‘Sometimes I feel like Tiger shroff is my sibling.’

And last but not the least,

Aishwarya Rai– ‘I should’ve married Salman rather than this Papa’s boy.’

Jokes Apart,

Here are some unknown facts about lying! (Ghor kalyug)

  1. Lying makes you smarter: Scientists say that liars have more brain matter in their prefrontal cortex! The reason is, they can link thoughts and ideas which haven’t actually happened in reality. Honest people have a straight functioning brain which is not much capable of making up stories which aren’t true, but liars can make stories by keeping all the details and facts straight! Isn’t that fascinating?
  2. Everyone is a liar out there! : According to recent studies, every person on an average lies at least once a day.
  3. Hurry makes you tell a lie: Most lies aren’t premeditated. They usually slip out when people don’t have much time to think about the consequences.
  4. People first learn to lie at the age two: Well, every small kid lies when they are asked have they eaten all the chocolates you gave them like 10 minutes ago?

But sometimes, lying becomes nasty when your true best friend, GF/BF, or any other close person does so, doesn’t it?

Here is a way you can get to know if someone is lying to you.

Liars avoid eye contacts while lying? Well, Not really, nowadays liars are too good in making the eye contact while lying so that other person doesn’t guess.

  1. If they shift their eyes at your left for few seconds before saying: They are visualizing something, they are imagining something. And lying is a process similar to imagining.
  2. If they shift their eyes at your right for few seconds before saying: They are remembering the facts. They are remembering the things which happened, so probably the person is telling the truth.


For example: If you ask someone, Did you have the Tender coconut ice cream at the Naturals yesterday?

If his eyes move towards your left: And he says- “Ummm, Yes, it was good.” – He was imagining how it would be in his imagination, He is lying.

If his eyes move towards your right: And he says- “Ya! It was amazing.” – He was remembering how he ate it yesterday and is telling the truth.

This isn’t a 100% proven method, but I just read it somewhere that this technique is used by American Police officer’s to detect a lie.

But hey! You know what? Be Honest, Don’t Lie! :

No matter lying may be fun, but it can never gain someone’s trust. Saying a lie sometimes for someone’s benefit is good, but making it a habit is worse than any disease. Be truthful; be honest with people who trust you. Because, trust is like mirror, once broken, can never be mended back. Even if you mend it, the lines will always be there.


“If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything!’’ – Mark Twain

According to me, People who accept what they are socially and personally, find it much easier to be themselves in any situation. And the biggest step towards accepting as you are is to be honest. Honest people don’t have to be fake; they find success more easily because people trust them easily for their cordial and trustworthy morale image.

So, the ultimate message behind this article is – Don’t be too honest, as honest people are taken for granted these days, nor be a liar! Be balanced! And no matter what the circumstances, be honest with yourself!
