One thing I still don't get used to hear from people is the word "Bro". Often, too often boys in Delhi call me bro. I always felt that I am not their bro. And I wanted to tell them if I get to know you a bit more and so I would like to become your friend then I don't mind to hear it from them. But it is not my choice. I still hear it all the time.
There was a young boy who used to called me "Hey Bro" all the time. He was nineteen that time. For him to call me Bro is very ridiculous. Cause I am almost his father's age and of course I didn't know him that much. I even asked him to not use the word and simply call my name. But it never happened. We are disconnected for almost more than two years now. I don't miss him calling me a bro. But I do wonder he either became a Bollywood actor or not(He said that was his dream).
To think of that kind of friendly word is not only that. There is a word "Man" and "Buddy". I do feel that even if you don't use that word, I get it you and I are men. I don't want to criticise it too much. It is just a friendly way of talking. But in some way, I do feel that it is over used and it supposed to make everyone close but not that close(at least for me, some what shallow felling, like a bro hug) and more of shallow relationships(I get to hear the words in my gym everyday.
Maybe I am too shy(not really) or too conservative on this matter. But when I look at my close friends, they never use that word "Bro". We don't need the word. We already know each other well and our name is good enough to call each other. Even we often say "Love" to each other from our true friendships.
I still don't know what made them to use the word so often and so easy. Probably I'd never know. Cause I will never use the word. But someday I might ask them. "Bro, Buddy, Man and Bhaiya", why? Also I might suggest them that they could use it after we get to know better for this uptight Korean guy. But how about we introduce ourselves and share names and call our proud names so that we don't need to label bro(god knows how many bros they have in every places) for each other. So please don't bro me.
