Chaar log dekhnge to kya kahenge


We must have heard these words from our parents and relatives at least a million times while growing up.

“Chaar log dekhnge to kya kahenge".

These four people changed our whole society. The way we think,the way we grow or the way we should not grow.

These four people are responsible for our evolution, what we want or what we should want.

Now lets quickly capitulate what these four people are looking for:

1)      You cannot sleep till 10:00 AM because “Chaar log dekhnge to kya kahenge.
2)      You cannot dress as you want because “Chaar log dekhnge to kya kahenge.
3)      You should take bath everyday because “Chaar log dekhnge to kya kahenge. I really don’t know why somebody will want to see me while I am in shower.
4)      You cannot remain bachelor for long time or say till you turn 26 and onwards because “Chaar log dekhnge to kya kahenge.
5)      You should only become a Dr. or Engineer otherwise “Chaar log dekhnge to kya kahenge.
6)      You cannot go for an inter caste marriage because “Chaar log dekhnge to kya kahenge.
7)      You should try to be look more fair otherwise “Chaar log dekhnge to kya kahenge.
8)      You should come in top 3 in your school or “Chaar log dekhnge to kya kahenge.

Even after marriage these four people didn’t leave you.

First three points are common as above. There is not much of a difference when it comes to mother and wife.

Rest other points are

1)      We cannot travel on bikes otherwise “Chaar log dekhnge to kya kahenge”.
2)      We should travel at least twice every year or “Chaar log dekhnge to kya kahenge”.
3)      We need to always look our happy best or “Chaar log dekhnge to kya kahenge”.
4)      We need to remain within a certain waist diameter or “Chaar log dekhnge to kya kahenge”.


These four people are responsible for what I am today. I never saw these 4 people in my life, who are they where did they come from and where did they go. These questions troubled my mind from childhood.

After all the troubles I went through as a kid to search for these four people really made my life hell. Scarred me forever. I still search for these “Chaar log” even on facebook.

They are like my pseudo parents as they have always been silently telling me what I should do what I should have become what I want.

 And for long I suffered, but like all Hindi movie hero I started my quest. The quest of finding his lost parents, kumbh mein bichde bhai..... (background music please.) 

Yes I am a big fan of all kind of Hindi movies (Any certificate and grade) ask my wife.

After two decades of searching I finally could not find these four guys. I used all my engineering, analytical and managerial skills in my pursuit.

Keeping in mind their ever elusive nature and their secrecy they can be considered be spies, special agents or much better secret service (my personal favourite KGB).
