The Great Indian Pressure Cycle

Written in


Give birth to a boy. Give birth to a boy. Give birth to a boy.
Eat. Eat. Eat.
Don’t touch that. Don’t do this.
Study well. Don’t play.
Study Engineering or Medicine
Go abroad. Go abroad.
Don’t get distracted by foreign girls.
Marry this girl. Marry this girl.
Make her pregnant. Make her pregnant.
Give birth to a boy. Give birth to a boy. Give birth to a boy.

repeat ad infinitum.

In India, home of the species, Homo Unsapiens Indica, the girl carries the Y chromosome. The boy carries nothing. He gets the girl to do most of the carrying.

    mamee: are you married?
    mamee asks 10yrs later: anychildren?
    mamee asks 20 yrs later: Are your children married?
    mamee asks 30 yrs later: Do your children have any children?
    mamee asks 40 years later (assuming mamee is fit and fine minus Alzhemiers)……Are your children’s children maried…….. is a vicious cycle…..neverending vicious cycle…..
