Domestic life is ruined by a great show off
(I got the idea of writing this after I read a tamil post by SP Ramanathan. My thanks to him)
I am great genius of sorts ,
Who is capable of writing a Wikipedia,
On any subject on earth whatsoever ,
But my wife finds it hard to understand anything.
So right from the time the sun rises in the east,
I would be showing off to her all that I know,
To my poor dear wife , who finds it difficult ,
To understand , even simple things in life.
Our domestic life was indeed miserable ,
For my wife felt that I was torturing her ,
Using my genius and tried always,
To avoid me and rarely talked to me.
One day when it was a holiday ,
And my wife getting bored of hearing,
Incessant outpouring of my lectures,
Had gone to visit her parents who were nearby.
And I feeling the need of some audience ,
Decided to visit a friend of mine , who not only,
Knew everything on earth but also could do,
Any work given to him in a jiffy with great efficiency.
My friend and his wife welcomed me with great warmth ,
And I with great curiosity asked both of them,
About their day to day life and the wife,
With a great smile started narrating with glee.
“Your dear friend does not know even simple little things,
And it is me who is compelled to get all his work done for him,
And he even does not know how to see the time from the clock,
And date from the Calendar and I have to see it and tell him about it.”
And my friend said to me , “Yes my friend ,
If she is not there even for some time ,
I find it difficult to do anything at all.”
And his wife looked at him with great love.
Next day I met my friend in his great office ,
And asked him , “What happened to you?”
And he said, “True I know everything ,
And I also know lot about her ,.”
“She is an extremely efficient manager of the home,
And would be able to give a great life to me with even less finance,
But all her life no one in her home felt the need,
To say even one word of appreciation to her.”
When she got married to me , she knew I was a genius,
And I thought that she would suffer a lot ,
Due to her the inferiority complex and,
Then I decided not to show off myself to her at any time.
Due to that we both lead any extremely,
Satisfactory married life and she never ever,
Leaves me alone and goes anywhere,
And I would even refuse to go to heaven if it is offered to me.
