I’ve this bad habit. Habit or no I don’t know but I have this thing in me which sometimes irritates me to no limits. The ‘hyped’ syndrome is what I think it should be called.Any way!
Something which is too much liked by people overall, certainly doesn’t make way to my ‘likes’ list. Like if majority of the people will tell me that so and so movie is a block buster and the sorts I’ll either not watch it or even if I do I’ll not like it that much.Crazy, isn’t it?
Something plays with my psyche, I guess, with so many reviews already in place before I can taste the food or read the book or watch the movie or visit the place.
But, this does not mean that this is the only reason why I don’t like certain things that I don’t like. I’ve my genuine reasons behind not liking or discarding things that others might find oh-so-wonderful.
Recently, I wrote on my FB wall that I want to read a book and asked people to help me chose one from the four options that I had listed from my library and ‘Palace of illusions’ was one of them. You won’t believe all the people to comment on that wall post recommended POI. I was amazed to see that everyone around has read that book and secondly that everyone gave a green signal to it.
Oh the result? I picked up entirely different book but not POI. And to add to that I’ve bought that book almost 6 months back now and haven’t made up my mind yet, to lay my hands on it, can you beat that?
Another example: Aishwarya Rai. I’ve seen people go crazy after her. But I seriously don’t understand what’s there in her which is so outstanding and gives her an edge over other wonderful actresses around? At least I can’t find any such distinguishing factor, sigh! Not that I don’t find her beautiful. She is she is. But what I disagree is people praise her like she is the only beautiful lady spotted on earth!!!
Told you it irritates me sometimes. And it leaves me wondering that why can’t I bring myself to like things that generally everyone around likes? May be I take this thought pretty seriously 😉
Does anything like this happen with you too? Or do you have any such habit or tendency which you think is weird at times or bothers you?
