Us vs. Them



Positions I feel an outsider of, inspite of ostensibly being in one (or both) of the categories:
'MBA' vs. Intellectual
All Men vs. Feminists
Introvert vs. Extrovert
Delhi vs. Mumbai
Porn vs. Erotic Art
Market vs. Welfare State
Engineers vs. Liberal Arts
Unlimited Freedom vs. Constraints to Uphold That
Yuppie vs. Mass-Comm types
Fashionable vs. Bookish
Competitive vs. Helpful
'MBA' vs. Poet

Mowgli, is that for you on for me? If for me, then I am clear about secular and INFP...

If for you, then are you really confused about materialism vs idealism?

I am definitely an insider - caught in the crossfire between...

Certain Vs. Confused
Fat Vs. Fit
Right Brained Vs. Left Brained
Free Vs. Constrained
Ambitious Vs. Laid Back
Federer Vs. Sampras
Yuvraj Vs. Laxman
Gults Vs. RoW

Rishabh: Indian vs. NRI is similar, I guess.

Ravikiran: Couldn't agree with you more on Federer vs. Sampras, but, Gults vs. ROW! :-)

No, it's not.

not when you have to BUY water in restaurants, and that too only the 'sparkling' type, aka soda.

and definitely not when you have to shell out 200 czech crowns for an aloo paratha

Blogger dhoomketu said...

Rishabh, That's 360 bucks for an aloo paratha... You are cooking yourself, I hope.

Btw, my point was that NRI vs. Indian is similar to the categories that I had posted.

You poor tortured soul you. My picks, for what they're worth:

Analytical vs Poetic (aka Thinking vs Feeling)
Academia vs Practitioners
Wagner vs. Verdi
Blondes vs. Redheads
To be vs. Not to be.

Oh, and that most fundamental of all divisions:

Espresso vs. Cappuccino

I am on permanent Exile anyway. :) The poles are so far apart I can't even see them. :))

Falstaff: Blondes vs. Redheads? Somebody's having too much choice these days, I guess. And yes, espresso vs. capuccino is for coffee drinkers (which I am not). For me, single malt vs. weizenbeer

Maksood: Work vs. Fun and Process vs. Content seem like senior leadership. Good, good

Dbo: Salsa vs. Gym can replace fat vs. fit, I guess. :-)

Neha: Permanent exile vs. Temporary clarity??
