Well, of course the targeted group I am gonna relay a message here won’t read this, being too stubborn and with the attitude, “My life, my rulez” and “Only Goat Can Jadge Meyh.” But I’ll write this message anyway because I want to.
First of all do you girls know how lucky are to be able to go to school and college and even own a Facebook account for the matter? You have no idea how blessed you are to be able to go to school and access Facebook without any precarious circumstances, intimidation and threat.
Girls your age elsewhere in the world risk losing their lives every day just go to school. In case you haven’t heard of Malala Yousafzai (of course you wouldn’t have because you are too busy taking duckface photos of yourself and upload them on Facebook to get likes rather than gain extramural knowledge besides what’s hip in Kollywood), she was shot in the head by a Taliban fundamentalist just for being vociferous about girls’ education in Swat Valley, Pakistan, under Taliban separatist rule. She battled for her life and survived her grievous injuries. And, Malala went on to speak in the United Nations on how schooling is important for girls and got a standing ovation. Queen Elizabeth and the Obama couple met her and praised her advocacy and she is only 16. She speaks better English than me and became the youngest person ever to be nominated for Nobel prize while you girls ‘be like Swag’ and work at ‘Loading Swag… 100%’ Unggeleh yellam Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq leh vitturunum. Oru porul illena than anthe porul odeh arumai teriyum. Girls in the aforementioned countries fight everyday just to attend school; they are so hungry for education and many girls have lost their lives simply because they went to school. But, what you girls do? Fight with fellow Indian girls while still in school uniform, film the fights and upload them in YouTube. Yenemo periya saathanai maari, yaaru mechikke? If break up with boyfriend or want to kasi sound another girl, you girls update profane statuses on Facebook.. Athu yenna vaaiya illeh septic tank ah? Both are fetid for that matter.
Okay, so you, schooling girls, barely 14 and 15 exchange rings with your boyfriends, have them tie the thali around your neck and upload photos of yours doing such stunts on Facebook for all and sundry to see. I have news for you girls. Girls from rural India, Bangladesh and Pakistan would love to switch places with you. You can be sold as child brides, be married off to men old enough to be your grandfather when your poor parents can’t pay the debt they took from them in order to feed you and your siblings, get beaten and raped by your husband and in laws everyday for not bringing enough dowry, have one kid in your arms and another in your stomach and toil all day and night doing household chores, get abused for failing to give birth to a male child and have your daughters killed just because they are girls as well as suffer from complications of giving birth at 14 and 15 like, eclampsia, pelvic disproportion, malnutrition, maternal mortality, obstetric fistula, where the mother becomes incontinent and unable to push the baby out eventually leading to infant mortality while the girls who swapped places with you go to school and go on to become like Marie Curie, Amelia Earheart, Ambiga Sreenivasan, Hillary Clinton, Kalpana Chawla, Jane Goodall, Margaret Tatcher, Julia Gillard and many more women who changed the course of world history and made a difference and breakthroughs. Seems legit, ok va girls? Ithu amma appa vilayatu illeh, nijam. Mudinja Google pannungge, learn about all these.
Your parents pamper you, bending to your every whim and fancy, get you smartphones, provide whatever you need and more only to see you behave like a bunch of trigger happy morons and lecherous, rouge apes. In Africa girls walk for miles, facing dangers in the form of wild animals and rapists lurking in the bushes just to go to school and your parents send you girls to school and tuition in plush cars appeyum padikke kasakuthu. I have never heard a SwaqTamilachiPonnu or AmishaPurpleCadburyLover or ImmaOreoVanillaPinkyGirl coming tops in exams for obvious reasons.
Get your priorities right girls – giving duckface poses, having hundreds of likes on your photos, your ability to spell English wrongly, having random boyfriends, your prowess in profanity and having many ‘owning’ you and you being many boys’ ‘property’ are not considered as outstanding skills in your resume. Believe me, such behaviorism is the last thing you ever will want in your life. Athu oru paisaku pirojinom illeh. Vekke kedu.
You are extremely fortunate girls; there are many girls out there willing to die to have what you have got. Yesh, we all YOLO and that’s why it is even more important for you girls to mend your ways and concentrate on what matters in the long run. It is not wrong to have a Facebook account but don’t misuse the social network because one day, you will pay heavily for it.
