(Disclaimer: This article is not meant to hurt anyone’s sentiments. This is a sarcastic dig on the ongoing reservations to lighten the moment.)
We the general category people want reservations too. On one hand, where one section is holding protests for reservations in public services, we the general category people cringe at not getting reservations even in trains. This is unfair on our part, so we want that our demands should be fulfilled too. In other words we want reservation for the following things ASAP:
1. Restaurant Reservation
No, we won’t go to dhabas or McDonalds anymore. Hailing from general category, we want reservation in five star hotels so that we can impress our girlfriends while proposing her with a ring in the champagne glass and live life “happily ever after”. Hmph!
2. Train Ticket Reservation
Do you not realize what a pain it is to book a train ticket? We don’t even get a confirmed train ticket after paying shit loads of money. We want Prabhu Ji to promise us confirmed window seat, lower berth, 1st class tickets every time we want to live our Chennai Express moment. Hmph!
3. Flight Reservation
During the Jat protests, we saw news that Jet Airways started charging as high as Rs 55,000 for a Delhi to Chandigarh flight. We want them to make us fly for free at least once. If not, we should get the cheapest deal every time we want to book a flight to Goa for paartaaayyyy. Hmph!
4. Hotel Reservation
When we face a power cut, we would prefer to make reservations in Radisson Blu or Leela Kempinski to save ourselves from the upcoming summer heat and mosquitoes. A sternly humble request from general category, this is. Hmph!
