Seriously, what’s really wrong with this world? Yesterday I asked a friend if he have watched the last episode of season 3 of ‘sherlock’. Now that was the most hot talk going around the world at that time. (because ‘sherlock’ series left us for an year, last night). And I was of the impression that everyone watches it. But what was the reply I got?
“sherlock? who’s sherlock?”
I thought he was joking, but replied anyway (smiling) : “Sherlock… Sherlock Holmes”
“Oh that one, the one english teacher was talking about…. seriously what is it?”
I was speechless. I wanted to run away to Mars and never come back. I only told him that sherlock is not an “it” but a “he” , a person. And “the adventures of sherlock holmes” is a novel maam was talking about”. I deemed it better not to explain much and silenced.
Its not the first time it have happen to me. Every time I ask someone about: “hay! did you watched that …” or “did you read that…?” or “do you know about ….” or anything else, I get the same ‘reply’ over and over again “what’s that?” And now I am used to it.
Now one can easily find game of thrones or bollywood fans, but finding one with same taste as mine is very very difficult. But I don’t care, its a lone world for me. But alas those poor souls; deep down there I will always be wishing things to get better for them.
