July 20, 2009

When I was in my tenth standard, my family and teachers kept telling me that I needed to study hard for a year for my board exams and then my life would be set. If I scored good marks, then I could choose the stream I wanted to enter.

When I was in my twelve standard, the same thing happened. People all around kept telling me to give my best efforts for a year for the boards and then my life would be set when I entered the college of my dreams!

Finally, after finishing twelve, the same thing happened in college as well when people told me to perform well, so that I would be set in life and get a good job.

Once I started working, nobody told me anything, but I find that I need to excel in what I do and more importantly, prove my intelligence or more often, the lack of it.

And that is exactly what I am doing right now……………

Hence, if you don’t see a blog post for a while, maybe a week, kindly excuse………….

Yeah, the addict that I am, I had to write about it.

PS: Dhirubhai, I am still in planning phase on the other post. I will get it out as soon as humanely possible.
I leave you guys with this brilliant fusion song of an old carnatic score:

    It’s always the same chant isn’t it?
    Study well now and play later, work hard now and play later.
    Once you have studied hard, you need to study harder to keep the scores, once you have established yourself at the work place, you need to work harder to remain there and maintain visibility…

    so, when do we get to play?
    OG: hopefully, I get to play in a week!

    OG: I need to meet your husband and learn form him
    So busy time at work?1 week sabbatical? oh no! You busy, Hitchy busy – who’s going to entertain all of us? Maybe, I should take a break too and do some useful work for a change …

    How strange! The same thing happened to me too!

    My mentor, one of my uncles, told me that we have to invest in the first 25 years of life to live comfortably in the next 75 years. That means work hard for 1/4 of your life and relax for 3/4th… Well, thats what I understood.
    OG: hehehehehehehehehe, endhu cheyaana mashe 😛
    Tell you what, I’m 28 running now and finished the first quarter. so just as I was supposed to relax I had a daughter and all of a sudden the real investment starts… for the comfortable life of my little one.. Now each penny counts and you’re already worried about her well-being and financial security for her studies, marriage and so on… There goes the 3/4 relaxing up in smoke..heheheeee 🙂

    See, how well we are fooled!

    Life is a bitch man, and then you die…
    OG: I agree!!!!!!! with responsibilities also come stress!!!!

    Truth OG, the real truth! Study well, work well, get married, have kids, get kids to study, get kids married, get grandkids.

    People are jobless. So they keep goading on others who have better things to do in life. Like ‘Stand and stare’.

    So the whole world is spinning – meaningless and with no end in sight.
    OG: OMG, you have gone senti here 😛 LOL

    I was told the exact same things . In my case , it started from 8th standard . Bihari’s take their education very seriously you see . 😀 For most of us , IITJEE , PMT , CAT and UPSC/BPSC are our favourite past times .

    And this was a joke , so please don’t mind , my fellow Biharis . 🙂
    OG: joke it is, but true as well 😛

    And thats why I am in hibernation from the online scene. Sometimes it is important to realise that there are heck a lot of pressing things at the back of your mind. To pack them off and be at peace is what I am trying to do. Your situation may not be as grave as mine, but what the heck, Its LIFE!:)

    Good luck:)
    OG: thanks 😛
