For me, it depends upon whom am I talking to!

1. Father: All the questions are answered as “Yes” and “Okay”. Even if the answers are negative, otherwise he will be worried.

2. Boyfriend: All the questions are answered as “Yes” and “Okay”. Even if the answers are negative, same reason as above.

3. Thesis Supervisor: “ I have finished the codes, it is just that the output is not proper”. Which in reality means, I have not even started writing the codes.

4. Collaborator : “Yes Sir, I know how to proceed further” . But the truth is, I don’t have 0.1 % idea about the terms he has used.

5. Male Friends: “We will hang out next time” and that next time never comes.

Lie- “You got into a relationship? I am so happy for you!”
Reality- I am reconsidering my entire life right now because if you got a girlfriend then there’s something terribly, terribly wrong with this world.

Lie- “I am a little busy right now, I will call you later”
Reality- If you are actually anticipating that call then you need to sort your life. For real.

Lie- “I like your friends!”
Reality- Their offhand sexist jokes are NOT funny and I have killed your best friend thrice in my head.

Lie- “I got no time to do my make up”
Reality- I spent 1 hour and 38 minutes trying to get this ‘natural look’.

Lie- “Oh, you went to Goa last year? Nice”
Reality- Of course I know that. I have Instagram stalked you so terribly, I even know which biscuit your dog likes the best.

Lie- “I don’t use slangs”
Reality- I call my best friend with such slangs that sometimes I forget what her name is.

Lie- “Sorry, that was a drunk text”
Reality- I was as sober as Virgin Mary when I called you sexy, can you please, for once, get the goddamn hint?
