Blind by Choice
Subba Rao
"Sir, are you visually impaired?"
"Then why you were wearing a blind fold?"
"Just to feel safe."
"I don't want my fellow travelers in the plane threatened by my looks and type of my clothing."
"How the blind fold helps?"
"Well, people feel safe around blind men and pregnant women."
"I see your point but we cannot allow blind folded people into the plane."
"Blind fold also keeps my own irrational thoughts under check."
"What you mean?"
"I feel overwhelmed around African American people."
"They are too emotional."
"I see, how about around whites?"
"They are very sensitive people and that makes me nervous."
"How about Orientals?"
"They look too smart and I feel stupid around them."
"OK, how about people from Middle East?"
"I feel envious of their oil wealth and I feel poor around them."
"How about Hispanics?"
"They all appear good natured and I feel bad for myself."
"Umm, how about people of your own kind?"
"You mean South Asians."
"Well, whatever."
"What you mean?"
"Well, I don't know where South Asia is."
"I don't feel comfortable around them too."
"How come?"
"They are always patronizing and philosophical."
"Well, I suggest you consider driving than flying since we don't allow blind folded passengers without a certificate of legal blindness or some sort of health condition that requires blind fold in the plane."
"I thought by wearing blind fold in the plane I can create a controversy and a big pay offer from my publishers."
"Sir, it is a free country but still you can't get on board with a blind fold just to look blind and stir up controversy."
"Damm, everytime I come out with a bright plan to advance myself somebody will throw a wet blanket on it, why?" pondered Juggernaut.
