"Ik nuqte ne mehrm se mujrum bna dya/ hum dua likhte rahe voh dagha parrhte rahe"
Applying this verse to the above example, we can dare translate: ‘One C that I didn’t see effed up the compliment / I wrote cool, but they got fool’. Beware of the autocorrect tool and careless digiting.
The purpose of this piece is to caution you, my dears. In older times, to caution you from inadvertent errors and mistakes, they would say: ‘Mind your Ps and Qs’. But since P & Q are literally poles-apart on the cell phones’ keyboard, it’s time to mind other letters.
Now that FIA, IB, ISI, MI, CID, and rest of the sensitive agencies are all set to perform the insensitive job of snooping at Facebook, Viber, WhatsApp and whatnot, we must mind our Is & Us, in particular.
Allegations of compromising national security and committing blasphemy aside, speed typing and wrong lettering can cause social anarchy in our intimate relations and marital harmony too.
I, therefore, would like to give some tips. First, turn off the autocorrect function. With that, at least one demon would be put to rest. Two, either type slowly or read a message before sending. Particularly, if you are a man with even vague and meek propensity of harassment - re-reading is better than recalling.
For instance, in ‘open the gate’, h is highly likely to replace g in the last word, and you will get instant hate because you asked for it. Similarly, be extra careful while cursing your ‘fate’, and don’t type ‘date’.
A friend once almost fatally wrote to his wife, ‘she is in my lust’ as he fumbled on u in place of i. If you nitpick here and like to invoke ‘Freudian Slip’, I wouldn’t mind much but it may be a harsher judgment.
Similarly, while telling your beau that you’re watching a live show, make sure she doesn’t get ‘love show’, and while sharing a planning type text about your son, don’t end up confessing ‘Our Sin’.
After all, premonition is the first step towards prevention.
