RJ Sayema’s open letter to Social Media trolls : Do you have children at home?


Do you have children at home? If you do, think about changing your profession as soon as you can for they are learning their most important ‘lessons’ by watching you every day

Dear Trollers,
Hope you are at last doing good since goodness is beyond you these days. Hope you are taking sufficient doses of ‘hateful and venomous’ thoughts and words after your meals. This indispensable routine must not be disturbed as it is currently your source of daily bread and butter. BTW how much do you ‘earn’ per abuse? Ah, quite sure, it must be a good amount as you won’t sell your conscience for a penny, right? You must have ask for a raise every month from your ‘boss’ as it’s becoming increasingly challenging for your tribe to keep up the ‘good’ work.


I see people becoming immune to your abuses and hate campaigns with each passing day. They have stopped reacting to your attempted trolls. Idiots! They just don’t get furious and disturbed anymore. Such shameless souls, I say! But I understand your pressures and predicaments. This seems to be your only source of income these days. Economy is in shambles; jobs are frozen and monthly expenditures are only on the rise. What can you do? I understand, totally. I must say the way you hound people with your ‘shower of abuses’ and ‘lynching threats’ on Facebook and Twitter are quite impressive at times. Shows your dedication, hard work and immense ‘talent’.

Keep up the ‘good’ work. Don’t give up my friend. However, I hope, you don’t have kids at home. Do you? If you do, think about changing your profession as soon as you can for they are learning their most important ‘lessons’ by watching you every day. God forbid, if they start ‘abusing’ you the same way????? Na, let’s stay positive.
Cool then. I gotto go and do the boring task of ‘standing with the ‘right’ (Naa, not your right 😀).

Take ‘good’ care of yourself. Keep trolling. And yes, if EVER, you realise that conscience and peaceful existence supersede money, we would welcome you back. We don’t earn much my friend but we sleep peacefully. We promise we will never talk about your past. Never.

Your well-wisher

प्रिये Troller महाशय ,

उम्मीद है कि आप सुबह , दोपहर , रात हर खाने के बाद कड़वी सोच और जुबां कि ख़ुराक़ पाबंदी से ले रहे होंगे I ये ख़ुराक़ आज इसलिए भी ज़रूरी है कि इससे आपकी रोज़ी रोटी जो चलती है I एक गाली के कितने पैसे मिल जाते होंगे ? अच्छे ही मिलतें होंगे क्योंकि ईमान सस्ता तो नहीं ही बेचा होगा आपने , क्यों? मेरा सुझाव है कि हर माह अपने साहेब से पैसे बढ़वाने कि मांग अवशय रखें I काम मुश्किल ही होता जा रहा है I सुना है लोगों पे गालियों का असर कम पड़ने लगा है I बेहिस और बेशरम हो रहें हैं धीरे धीरे लोग I खाल मोटी होती जा रही है I अब आपकी परेशानी भी खूब समझती हूँ I रोज़ी रोटी के लिए क्या कुछ नहीं करना पड़ता I Twitter, facebook पे गालियां, धमकियाँ देने का जो हुनर है आपका उसे फीका मत पड़ने दीजियेगा …और हाँ …अगर आपके बच्चे हैं तो कोशिश कीजियेगा कि जल्द से जल्द कोई इज़्ज़त वाली नौकरी मिल जाए …वरना कहीं वो बड़े होकर आपको आप ही से सीखी गालियां …….जाने दीजिये बड़े कहते हैं बुरी बातें नहीं कहनी चाहिएँ …
चलिए , अपना ध्यान रखियेगा I जिस दिन जीवन में पैसे से बड़ा ईमान , इज़्ज़त और सुकून हो जाए , हमारे पास लौट आइएगा I हम वादा करते हैं आपके अतीत के बारे में कुछ नहीं कहेंगे I
