I was reading newspaper which had this article about exams and its tensions. It really angered me so much about the way our eductaion system works.How can it judge that one student is good and the other is not?

The educations system is so detrimental that parents start pressurizing their children to keep doing better, pushing themselves till they create zombies outta them.

Does this mean that a child who is probably interested in creative arts, or geography, or history is no good? Why is it that the teachers dont look beyond these marks which at best bring out the mugging capacity of children?

No wonder so many suicides amongst teenagers and school goers.... When there is so much pressure to achieve..the extent to which parents go is so bloody infuriating....
They cut of the tv access, no talking to friends....STUDYING STUDYING AND MORE STUDYING......

The number of parents who are getting councelled because of their childrens' exams are on the rise too.... A mother hanged herself as her son did not get the required percentage.... So many teenagers develop haedaches, forgetfulness before exams..... This tension gets added on especially if there is another achiever in the family. Such is the case in mine too.

There is a cousin who has proved her worth and in the same age group comes my sister and another cousin.... I see the grilling session they are in for every time there are exams around the corner.... I dont understand why compare when each person is unique... Why are studies the bar of success.....

This argument can go on and on...until our education system does not improve there' s no hope for probable future painters, historians etc... as they will be stuck in the so called rote system

Hello LIFE

The last week was eventful.... I realised that i needed to put back the zing in my life.... realised that happiness cant be attained from outside but from within... I let go of my inhibitions and thought about just being happy and being free

It was one rejuvenating experience.....everything seemed beautiful and nice. I realised what i had lost all these days brooding unnecessarily....

I let my closest friend have some space on his own...and its truefamiliarity breeds contempt and i experienced it...was painful to let go but my heart felt amazingly light...

I also met my sweetest friend Prabhash whom i call as baby bear who had a near death accident when we studying our final year of graduation. Its a wonder he is alive. I like him a lot for the simple fact he does not pretend to me unike others. I met him one morning... actually very early as i had no other time during the day... From 7 to 8 i spoke to him. The positive outlook i had since four days was visible immediately to him and he was happy for me too....

Well i beleive that life is a train journey where u meet lots of people. Not all might be travelling to the same destination but they accompany u a short while and leave a lasting impression in the short time and they leave making us a better person.

Mixed Up Day

Hello everyone.....

Today was a mixed and the usual day for me. We had a practical exam on Visual Basic.

Since it is the end of the week every teacher took it in turns to torture us to the core.... My Saturday was not spared... Oh i didnt tell u people what happened last saturday

It was a riot. Suddenly there came a rule into existence(which atleast my whole class had never heard of???)that jeans were not allowed on Saturday, the one day that my great college had allowed us.

What followed next was the humorous(satiric)part... All four main professors of our college were standing out... waiting like hawks swooping on unsuspecting preys and they were not disappointed.... they had quite a healthy fare that day.....

Some people like my friend Jude smiled at one of the dean and the dean smiled back(rather smirked) as he was wearing a tight and slightly short pant.... And the smiling session might have continued if not my friend realised that he had an exam to write. He was then allowed to enter.

The other scape goats like me were not so lucky...I went wearing jeans and all he said was "This is not acceptable young lady" i argued sayin it was a saturday and that the rule never came into existence till today.... He asked me to go home and then come back after having changed.

I thought to myself that i myst be one lunatic if I went back home all 17 kms in the bus and sweltering heat to come back again and attend the 1 hour class that could have been over :)

So i said ok sir and walked out of college...... Since a lot of my classmates were ship wrecked like me(I took it as a blessing in disguise to curl up at home or go out with friends and make even more of it than I would have in those classes)...... ha ha ha

Well I call him Baldy(one of the deans) who unfortunately shares the same zodiac sign as me andI hope to strangle him before anyone forms their opinion on me based on that....

That was easier said than done.... What about all the others who were moaning about their day having gone waste.... well I said stop crying over spilt milk and either go home and keep talking about it or enjoy the way u like.

Well I decided to grab a burger at Mc Donalds and I put on some sinful calories that day but it was worth it....

And tomorrow is Saturday....According to the heads of this institution we are supposed to be in smart casual...What the hell is smart casual ? I thought to myself.... I looked really smart in the jeans and it was casual wear then what in the world went wrong??? Ha ha ha ha ha ha

Well I am tired after that recount and would like to wish u all a great weekend ;-)

Me and My virus

Hi everyone

Its that time of the year---changing seasons--- and new afflictions

Well I succumbed to the cold virus .....It started off with this curious ticklish feeling in the back of my throat... I took medications immediately.... (I know its all in the head, but I believe unless I have paid my doctor or chemist their fees the virus seems to cling on.....)

The sore throat diappeared as promised in 3 days. Its side effects were bad breath(what else after swallowing one pill after another) and so I managed to keep away all other viruses at bay :)

Then after three days what happens??? I get the most disgusting sounding and irritating cough that tends to literally mangle my intestines... woof... But this time I wanted to beat the virus at its own game so I refused to make anyone richer..... waited to see what its course of action would be....

That bloody thing seems to be infatuated with me ..... not leaving me one minute.... :-(

And to bring in the cherry topping on cake... On the fifth day my nose seems to be getting sadistic instincts drawn from the virus.... what I had always taken for granted... breathing.... got laboured.... that wretched virus seems to be enjoying all the attention it is getting for itself...

So I decided to ignore it.... whoa.... its effect seems to be receeding slowly... and yes it has grown weaker.... ha ha ha

Its sign that it still loves my voice which has gone from Kajol's to Rani Mukherjee's voice....

ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
