Had the female participation in treks gone down lately?
That was the question a moron had put up for discussion in Chennai Trekking Club's Facebook page. A set of equally moronic creatures then divulged into discussing various reasons for the drop in numbers among other things, such as whether actually there is a drop, what data is there to support the claim, should such private matters be discussed in public, why such moronic questions be answered at first place, and so on. Many core trekkers were trying to write off this serious issue simply saying that it doesn't matter and that their objective is to trek and that they are indifferent to the sex of participants. Ridiculous! It seemed to me that these individuals were hell bent on corrupting the young minds and turning them gay! The very reason I joined treks was to befriend pretty ladies, mingle with them, and well, get one girlfriend for myself. Which fool wants to walk tens of kilometers just to see some trees and drainage system of the mountains. Yes, we do wish to appreciate beauty of nature, but not the beauty contained in those fat old trees! If I wish to see trees or streams, I would rather visit Lalbagh or stand on the bank of Cooum. The organizers don't understand this fact. Sala, the very objective of trekking is being jeopardized now.
After joining few treks, I realized that just being on treks doesn’t guarantee attention from the ladies. The kind of attitude they carry along, ooph! Initiating a warm discussion itself was impossible, forget about igniting the fire of love. I thought it was my thirteen-rupee-haircut or the sixty-five-rupee t-shirt that was to blame, but then I realized that its modern times. The ladies today aren't behind the riches, very unlike 70s when the fat-ass ladies, in tight kurti and an overdose of mascara, would ditch their poet lover to marry a middle-aged seth with a pot belly. Today, cash is passé. What woman want is "character", that is the presentability of a man. Of what use is a diamond necklace in a party if all you got is an outfashioned drum to point at when asked for the source of the necklace? Probably, it was my wheatish complexion that was to blame. Strange it would sounds, but even the ragi-complexioned girls have desire for lighter shade than wheatish! So, what was it that was stopping me from becoming a “handsome man” **?

No reply from girls to this one yet :PReplyDelete
Aha! It seems "Going nowhere" didn't take you anywhere in your trekking career!! Hope you finally reach somewhere..ReplyDelete
Strangely, the only comment from girl was kept hidden by goggle as it detected it to be spam! Ridiculous!Delete
hee hee hee... rotfl bro... for ur wheatish complexion itself u r explaining these many experiences... Think abt people like me with our raagi-ish complexion, trying our luck and better luck next times in almost all trek spots of ctc... Dont make us write our big time tragedy stories here ;)ReplyDelete
Nachu, you won't regret your complexion once you reach the concluding part ;-)ReplyDelete
u said correctly that for enjoying nature we can go to lalbagh or in our own garden also.... but...at the same time why to come to a trek with a single goal of "befrending pretty ladies..." (gain here i am surprised to note that u want to befriend only pretty ladies... why not generally any lady).... join some dance class, gym, music class... u will get lot of chances there.... in treks people walk tens of km to enjoy the nature, the adventure and toughness involved in it, the new things that we learn, the new friends that we get etc. etc..... some friendship lasts for life and some at nathan's cafe... if u get a girl friend in a trek as u wished then u r lucky... and absolutely nothing wrongin it also...if u don't get a girl friend then just chill, enjoy and if u r not able to enjoy the trek then better drop it... best option is to try at some other place as mentioned above for fulfilling ur wish...ReplyDelete
Thanks a lot for your detailed input. Here is the second part. I would appreciate your further inputs.
Ok! So, are you somewhere implying that - Women come to treks, to show their pretty faces and flaunt their beauty - Well, I thought that's what they kinda do at the parties or at other "networking events" What about women who come to treks, to feed their dose of adventure and to admire nature? And are we commoditizing women during treks, too?ReplyDelete
No, no! You got it wrong. Even I thought so initially, but it was discovery of women for me. Please check the other parts for actually what i'm implying.Delete
