Reverse Sarcasm

Days, times and situations may be categorized into good, bad and ugly. From this onset, this was a routine day, a testing time and an un-managed situation for one of our (unlike) immediate seniors who was otherwise a wise, composed and polite person. He just made a tactical mistake of pointing out most witty of our course-mates, Qasim.

It was tea-break time at CAE. Some ten of us were sitting in classroom, preparing for a test. As the very senior entered, we sat to attention, with a loud “class!”. He walked around, observed everyone, and finally locked on Qasim’s uniform shirt which was not pressed (at all). Being very tasteful, graceful and mindful, our senior intended to demonstrate the anomaly to all of us in a way different than normal, giving it a touch of irony as well as spotlight.

The dialogue which was subsequently held between them is reproduced below:-

Senior (smiling, and talking very meaningfully): “Qasim! aapki shirt istree hui hui nahin lag rahee…!”
Qasim responded instantly: “Bilkul Sir! ye waqai istree hui hui nahin hai…..”

This was followed by a short silence. The short silence was succeeded by (our) big laughter. Our big laughter was noticed by our senior. And, like all such events in history, Qasim’s reverse sarcasm came back hard on us – in another form.
