Name Calling -- The Abuse

First of all let me be clear what I mean by 'Abuse' here. I only mean "gaali dena"/ "Name-calling". now since subject line is clear, lets come to its body.

Ever wonder what is so special about abuse? hmm.. ask a girl's opinion about it and she would say "ohh god! it shows poor upbringing of the abuser." And ask a guy, he would be either indifferent or would show respect to abuse.

There is always two sides of a coin. One which we can see, which is upfront and other which we can not see..which we can only take for sure, that it exists and obviously, it is not viewable. Same case stands for abuse too. Its easy to say that calling names shows your poor mentality but it is tough to accept that it requires lots of creativity too.

Name-calling expels your anger, shows your love, shun your hypocrisies and gives you power. Momentarily but definitely. Name-Calling helps in conveying your lengthy frustration in a single word; What else could do this so effectively!

Sexual-name-calling is as efficient in breaking relations as in bonding them; And here creativity matters most. The more creative it is, the more you would laugh.. the abuser as well as the one who got abused.

So people shun away that bad tag regarding Name-calling. Its not bad, its just one way you think about it.

    Don't see any harm in abusing unless the other person doesn't take Delhi abuses are a part of lanugage, more Punjabi culture kind of thing....nehw in college we rarely used to call each other by names....M, B, C...was the suffixes.

    well, name-calling is fun. m frm dilli, d capital of abusers. bt i thnk there's one thng that a person must remember, dun use those maa-bahen wali gaalis, coz then, u r refering to that person's family. rest, u can scratch ur head and really come out wid creative names...and its fun too.

    :)) Name calling is creative... :))it definitely is! And, I've recently started with namecalling, and I think its really efficient.. to convey wot u feel like in jus one or two words. I never abused. But now when I get angry with some dumb-head, I jus cruse him - coz I know thats what he needs... remember laato ke bhoot... And being a "girl", I respect namecalling. Unless it is just on your tongue 24 7, I dont think it shows your poor upbringing.... :D I hope you;ve recognized me.... - "girl"
