Welcome to Vocab Dhaba – the craziest Dhaba on YouTube ( & Internet). At this Dhaba; we present ENGLISH with Desi Tadka in a crazy, funny & in a Bollywood way. Dhaba has been there on FB since 2011. But the idea of converting the crazy content into Videos happened in May 2020. The first couple of months of Corona Virus Lock-down were really stressful. We at home really wanted to divert our minds. So, we bought the equipment, shot the videos, edited them at our hometown (Dharamsala, H.P.) & uploaded the videos every 2-3 days. These were 30 days of not only sheer fun but pure focus as well.
I realize that normally when anyone is made to hear or bear a motivational speaker- it can run the risk of becoming too much of an unwanted ‘Gyaan’. The reason why I promise my people ‘No Gyaan, Zero Yawn ! Events’. Self- Help that actually works. Not just the ‘WHAT TO’ Dos of life. But the ‘HOW TOs’ as well.
Just a few years into my work as a Motivational Speaker; I clearly realized that ‘Being funny is a serious Business’. In the last 18 yrs- humor, sarcasm & story telling have helped me help my audience in more incisive ways than I had initially imagined. But it is much more than cracking stupid, cliched jokes. It requires fearlessness, spontaneity, crystal understanding of audience’s emotional competencies and much more. I am 18+ now in my work. So, censor issues (which I had initially) too have been taken care of 🙂
Diary of a Young Girl of Marriageable Age: Guest Post by Arunima Shah:
Before I rocket launch into my diary entry, there is one important question I have – what exactly is this “MARRIAGEABLE AGE”? And who decides when I become marriageable really? My parents, my biology, my economy or my cosmology / astrology or Society?
If someone has a good answer, please let me know! 🙂
My biggest learning about people is that ‘People are very different from each other and need to be handled differently & accordingly’. This statement is so simple and pure common sense but its low implementation is the only reason why so many of us have people issues with friends, relatives, colleagues, neighbors or even spouses.

What do you think a recently graduated, yet twice-sacked-from-job, unemployed fresher should do? I would say, keep going. That’s what I did. In 2001, I was fired from my second job in the garment industry. Reason – “demotivating colleagues” at workplace. And that demotivation would be – my fundas to my colleagues and seniors. My employers thought my “gyaan” would increase the attrition rate in their organizations 🙂 … I knew then, that I could become a motivational speaker.
“Cheap, Idiotic, Useless, Immature, Fake, Has no Content, Gas, Sentimental, Flirt, Talks a LOT” – Some of the adjectives that were used by people for me between my age 20 & 35. And by a total of some 200 people spread across those years. If I were to have let my FORCE die down because of those few hundred who had no idea why I did what I did; – I would not have MET the next lot of million people who have today made me who I am by believing in my ways of life! Handling criticism is a necessary skill – because you will find critics everywhere; home, office and even bedroom 😉
