My God! The pronunciations ….!

Those days if you opened the news paper
There were stories of rape cases everywhere
Everyone concerned wanted it to happen nowhere
I was at a friend’s stationery shop wanting a stapler
Smart lass walked into the shop from somewhere
And inquired very stylishly such that all could hear
“I want some very good quality raping paper
I am searching but finding raping paper nowhere.”
I was shocked at her uttering such word without fear
And also at my friends’ coolness to tell her, he has raping paper.
He produced to her a bundle of wrapping paper
Which she bought and went away as if nothing mattered …..

I felt reminded of my steno, typing Rapeways
As subject of the circular I was sending on Ropeways
To acquaint this new product as a welcome addition
To the product range of our division, to improve contribution.
“Rape ways to improve contribution”, detecting mistake was jubilation.

Then here was a bridegroom telling his friend
Father got him engaged but getting married is postponed
His father is unable to find a suitable hole unfortunately
For all good holes in Mumbai are booked already
So he is deciding to book a hole in Ahmedabad shortly
Hall & hole is pronounced same, takes time to understand……
And even after you understand it is a job to comprehend…
