Marvi Memon Vs Majorlyprofound : TwitterSaga

MemonVsMajor

Deciphering the mind of a Pakistani Politician, tweet by tweet…

  • Ms. Marvi Memon : A high profile, social-media savvy female politician from Pakistani, a rarity in our neighboring country Pakistan, embarked on her maiden visit to India. She is known to have a highly critical views about India, not such a rarity in our neighboring country. Her Twitter bio has this to share about her “Life dedicated to Bhittai-Marui‘s people all over Pakistan as a pmln shair:)”.
  • For the benefit of her followers at the Twitter, where she is very active 24×7, she decided to micro-blog everything that she observes in the alien/enemy country during her maiden visit to India. Her observations actually proved the country to be neither an alien nor aggressively carrying the enmity. Like every other country in this world, the common people of India & Pakistan are fighting their own demons in the day-to-day life and majority of the people do not even have time to think about their own country what to say about the land across the border.
  • @majorlyprofound : One highly popular twitterati of South East Asia whose Twitter bio informs us that he/she is “an award winning, highly ejjucated, critical thinker who is also a wimmens exbert and Strategic geopolitical analyst” We could never get to know the personality behind the Twitter handle @majorlyprofound. Few months after this interaction, @majorlyprodound disappeared and a similar sounding @majorlyp appeared few months later, but the wit and sarcasm of the tweets from @majorlyprofound is yet to be surpassed by anyone including @majorlyp.
  • @majorlyprofound was heart-broken when Ms.Memon blocked him/her. Unable to bear the pain of being denied such a wonderful learning experience, @MajorlyProfound decided to take an imaginary voyage to the hostile neighborhood himself/herself. Since he/she had so much affection & craving for knowledge, the Angles of 21st century (technology->internet->social media) granted him/her the amazing power to see, hear and feel all the things that the Lady Politician Ms Memon is experiencing (like Sanjay from the  Mahabharata)

The communication skills of the Ms. Menon are highly evolved, many common people sometime find it hard to comprehend the meaning of sophisticated twits or decipher the deep thought behind them. So the explanations from @majorlyprofound were truly profound and invaluable in comprehending the meaning of Ms Memon’s pearls of wisdom. Following is the TwitterCast from the first one & a half day of the visit to India…
