Clichés have penetrated in our life and become indispensable
part of life and we are used to use it, it is submerged in our unconscious mind
and we use them in day to day language. Times changed, lifestyle changed but we
are still hanging with the clichés that our forefathers used, we haven’t missed
them. It is passing on from one generation to next just like it is the legacy
been carried away.

The WOW sequel “kill the clichés” empowered me with a vision to
part with these worn out clichés rather kill them seriously, it is no use, just
in a habit we are going with it whether it is in Bollywood films or inside our
houses or the society around.

Just count these cliches and reason it out, are they really
essential to stay with us or rather the time has arrive to kick them out of our
lives.

Been a woman, will start with the common ones that slips
from the tongue of feminine power out of habit….unconsciously.

  • HAMARE GHAR MEIN AISA NAHIN HOTA THA

She spends maximum springs of her life with
her husband and his family, still she is stuck with homesickness, height of
homesickness. The couple has celebrated their golden anniversary along with
grandchildren….hahahaha….drop it now…high time to carry.

  • HUM BACHCHE MEIN AISE NAHIN THE

 Common cliché used by mothers on their
growing kids…my great granny used, granny and mother used and fair enough, few
times, I used it too. There can’t be any vital truth in the statement nor it
make any sense. No two siblings are the same then how can you expect kids of
two generations be same and on top of that how can you prove that you were very
docile & disciplined. Further, the sentence is vague, what it implies, “HUM
BACHCHE MEIN AISE NAHIN THE”
tell them how were you but sense it out can you
accept your nonsensical acts that you did as a child in the face of your child
and even your mother won’t dare and the poor soul can’t question you and you
fare out safely stating out the sentence…Kill them in one shot…many have been
shot down by this dialogue better we invent something new.
Now, let us enter the Men sphere, it isn’t
the ladies alone famous for the clichés, Men too, do attack with old age
classic clichés affirming them masculine power.

  • MERI MAA BAHOOT SUNDAR THI. MERI MAA BAHOOT
    ACHCHA KHANA BANATI THI.

The most common version used by Men to show
off their mother’s skill to their wife and wife feels jealous. Two simple
reason to feel “J”, a woman cannot stand a praise of a woman and further, a
mother is adorable for all kids. Ask your kids, they too will have the same
story. A mother is beautiful to each and every child and her caring attitude is
adorable for all the kids. Poor men forget and use it simply without thinking
of the consequences falling off after their dialogue…common, shoot at site,
respect your mother but please don’t use these words to your better half and
belittle her efforts.

  • HEY BHAGWAN, KIS BAAT KI PUNISHMENT DE RAHO
    HO.

This one is the most widely used one, you
don’t act as you are required to and you fail in your effort and you hold God
responsible for it. If you succeed in your pursuits, you take self-credit and
when things go wrong, you blabber your frustration to God. Please Men…drop this
cliché…when things go right, start giving credit to the Supreme power and you
will enjoy the failures too. The beautiful rose too thrives among thorns and in
the same way life too has ups and downs…Enjoy the ride, killing this age old cliché.


  • A PERSON IS STANDING AT BUS STOP IN QUEUE,
    STILL HE IS ASKED, “ARE YOU WAITING FOR THE BUS-STOP”

Height of misled minds or how unmindful we are, this is the
most common phrase and it is in roaring practice, even I do the same…It is in
our habit and I would say, it has taken entry in our blood and we often throw
the question, without giving a thought. We see people doing the things, still
we prompt.
The common prompts shot down even after watching the person
is busy in his spree.





  • You are studying- asking with the person who is
    busy with books.



  • You are watching TV- even after seeing that the
    person is eagerly watching the match on TV.



  • You are eating- asking a person who has morsels
    in his hand, ready to take entry in his mouth.
Now, it’s high time that we come out of
these worn and torn out clichés…SHOOT AT SIGHT ORDER is need of the hour and if
you are really in love with the clichés, DISCOVER SOMETHING NEW IN SEQUENCE TO
THE TIME WE ARE IN.
Share in your views, what are your thoughts
about the clichés and how to handle them.
I have shared views of mine.
