‘Fuck’ing in Modern Times


No! No! No! It is not porn. Don’t get the wrong idea just because I used the word ‘fuck’ and because I didn’t take the trouble to substitute the middle letters with fancy characters. I was not expecting children for readers and I firmly believe all who came up here are mature enough to distinguish fuck from ‘fuck’. So anyhow if it’s getting too uncomfortable for anybody then I promise to consider their sentiment and keep it to the minimal. If anybody did drop by expecting sleazy stuff then I do request them kindly to go somewhere else, not because I don’t want them to read my article in fact I would like from you to read it all and leave a comment and have a nice time. But I do not want to disappoint anyone so I may as well give a heads-up.



It was just recently when I was travelling in train that it happened; I was just fooling around the corridor walking to and fro without thinking much about anything and I accidently bummed into somebody who was obviously doing the same. And guess he just walks up to me and calls me a ‘Fuck Face’. How come he can identify the face I put up when I actually do it? I left that at it with a rather odd expression on my face but it got me thinking. People have become so accustomed to using this word in their public and private life that they can’t just keep it out of their mouth anymore. I does bothers me that people are now swearing on the fly, I know to expect chivalry and Victorian mannerisms is not realistic but a bit of civility can’t hurt, would it?


The one thing about our fast paced life is that we don’t have time to bother, we don’t have time to bother about ourselves much less the time to actually bother about what kind of words come in our mouth from time to time. Is this abysmal sense of civility what we would like to pass on to our children? I think it’s obvious whom to blame when  a child shows up with words such as ‘fuck’, ‘bitch’ , ‘whore’ and I you know I am sticking to the civiler ones. Please don’t misunderstand me for an ambassador of the ‘acclaimed’ moral police force but the truth is that I do not find it appealing that people educated and otherwise using words that are derogatory and offensive as a viable and acceptable form of small talk.



Every person has the liberty to use the words he like and the liberty to choose how and when he uses it too. I do use all the words I mentioned and many dirtier ones in my life but I don’t start every one of my sentences with ‘fuck’ or ‘bitch’. It’s unacceptable enough that you start swearing people for every little thing out there, but squeezing things like these (no I am not going to teach you anything your mother is going to be angry at me for ) them into every one of your sentences that’s way over the top of my head.



Often it amazes me how people manage to come up with random propositions that go with these words and give it horrendous meanings. It would not be a random surprise if it happens that ‘fuck’ is a word that goes with the most propositions out there. Then again I can neither advocate the use nor the disownment of such words but all I would like to propose a sensible use of them in life. You do have to say ‘fuck off’ when what you mean is really ‘fuck off’ but should you really have it in every sentence you utter? I can tell you one thing with at-most surety it’s not cool and definitely not Gen-Y, you are only fooling yourself if you think so!

  3. According to Osho, 'fuck' is the most enriched word in English Language.
    Here is a transcript of one of his speeches, you will enjoy it:

    “F*** is one of the most beautiful words. English language should be proud of it….

    “I don’t think any other language has any such beautiful word.

    “One Tom from California has done great research on it. I think he must be the famous Tom. Of Tom, Dick, Harry fame…

    “He says one of the most interesting words in the English language today is the word F***. It is a magical word. Just by its sound it can describe pain, pleasure, hate and love.

    “In language, it falls into many grammatical categories. It can be used as a verb, both transitive—John f***ed Mary—and intransitive—Mary was f***ed by John. And as a noun: Mary is a fine f***!

    “It can be used as an adjective. Mary is f***ing beautiful. As you can see, there are not many words with the versatility of the word f***! Besides the sexual meaning, there are also the following uses.

    “Fraud: I got f***ed at the used car lot!

    “Ignorance: F*** if I knew!

    “Trouble: I guess I’m f***ed now!

    “Aggression: F*** you!

    “Displeasure: What the f*** is going on here!

    “Difficulty: I can’t understand this f***king job!

    “Incompetence: He is a f*** off!

    “Suspicion: What the f*** are you doing!

    “Enjoyment: I had a f***ing time!

    “Request: Get the f*** out of here!

    “Hostility: I’m going to knock your f***ing head off!

    “Greeting: How the f*** are you!

    “Apathy: Who gives a f***!

    “Innovation: Get a bigger f***ing hammer!

    “Surprise: F***, you scared the shit out of me!

    “Anxiety: Today is really f***ed!

    And it is very healthy too. If every morning you do it as a transcendental meditation… just when you get up… the first thing… repeat the mantra, f*** you, five times… it clears the throat… that’s how I keep my throat clear….enough for today!

  7. “How come he can identify the face I put up when I actually do it?” this line is very hillarious dude. ( people would, rather, say ” this line is fuckin hillarious dude” lol.)

    Don't you think this is largely influenced on us through western culture? Movies especially? Hardly there are any dialogues without swearing on the 'fuck' word.

    It also accompanies with a standing ovation of our middle finger.

  8. So…true, Mr Wind. Swearing is getting a little out of hand. I heard of a recent study that said swearing actually makes one feel better after something horrible has happened to them. (I'm not advocating it eh. I'm still against it. I hope my little one does not hear of the study when he begins to understand things. 😉 I'd better go out and find something to counter this arguement. )
    My gosh! Arnab seems to have done a little dissertation on the uses of the f-word. Good job, yeah! :D. I just realised that it can actually be substituted for a whole lot of adjectives. 🙂

  10. I guess it is just upto the person. It is not like saying 'God' ten times makes a person saintly. Personally, Just because someone uses it in every other sentence does not make him/her a 'bad' person and I would refrain from judging or slinging it back, since I cannot personally go and ask every stray braking dog to keep quiet! Haha! So let them go about shouting hoarse, and u keep writing 😀

    I suppose you are write, I cant do pretty much nothing but still as MK Gandhi rightfully pointed out,

    “Be the change you want to see in the world.”

    I can change and I can talk about it and may be just may be someone will follow suit. There is no point in letting the dog bark, you can always try to make it see the light. just may be just may be!

  12. I like your point. The point with this word is that it (to me) does not sound pleasant even when you are using it for its literal meaning. I remember a scene from the movie 'The Pursuit of Happiness', where the father is telling his child that the spelling of happiness written on the wall of his day care is wrong (It was written Happyness). The kid asks, 'Is Fuck spelled right?' This word was written along with happiness. 🙂
