Victim of Blackmail.. :-(

Emotional Blackmail  : When the people in your life use fear, obligation, and guilt to manipulate you. It is a very powerful form of manipulation in which the person directly or indirectly threatens to punish you if you don't compile with how they want you to behave.

Some examples of things Emotional Blackmailers say are: "If you really loved me..." "After all I've done for you..." "How can you be so selfish..."
An emotional blackmail artist will use your vulnerabilities and deepest secrets against you.

Wow..!!! That's what i found in Google. But my mum, who i think can teach a thing or two to the blackmail artists, has gone a step ahead of all the above mentioned. She has decided not to eat Jalebi 
( her favorite Indian sweet ) till i agree to get married. If you guys think this is typical Bollywood or Hindi serial type. You are absolutely right. I laughed so hard when she told me about this, it irritated her even more. Told her i was gonna write about this here and that didn't bother her at all. She made a sad face and said its been five months of not having Jalebi.

Feel so bad about this 'cos i know how she loves it. Her birthdays are incomplete without them. Last birthday, dad got hot jalebis for her and she ate it all by the end of the day. There were more than ten, so that kinda scared us. But this time she's been so stubborn, tried enough to change her mind but of no use.. :-( 

Will wait for her next birthday and ask dad to get more than ten jalebis. Lets see how that goes.:-)


  1. U don't need to wait for her birthday ... there is an easier way to break this blackmail :)

  2. U don't have to wait for her next birthday ... there is an easier way our ... read your post again :)
