Lose control! No more paathshala!!

Finally, it’s over. After three torrid weeks of studying for my board exams, I can finally start studying for TNPCEE. Will this never end? Looking on the positive side though, at least the big one is over. I found the board exams to be a very interesting experience. I learnt a lot about the stink of my sweat while writing the exams in the fan-less dungeon aka our examination centre. It was so hot and sultry and writing the exams was an even bigger pain than it usually is. Like so many other people, I too messed up my Physics objectives though I never got the chance to give my views to the newspapers that put up articles on the great Physics tragedy. I would have also complained that the answer sheet that I was given did not have margins in it.

I heard some girl had to be sent to a mental institution after she wrote the Physics exam. It's sad how people place so much importance on their exams. I mean, I would never become so weird after writing an exam that I would have to be admitted in a mental institution. There are better ways to go to Kilpauk. You could be admitted because you spend your free time talking about globalization to your cutlery. You could be admitted for thinking that Atul Wassan has nice hair. You could even be admitted for trying to kill the Defense minister when he is going for a walk outside his house on an empty road with no guards around him. But to go insane after a tough exam, I don't get it.

I saw Rang De Basanti yesterday and figured out that my Hindi knowledge hadn't improved much at all. So while the actors were saying their patriotic stuff, I had to look at the screen with a blank expression on my face while those around me were having tears in their eyes. Well, most of them anyway. My friend kept going Ting-a-ling-a-ling during the whole show and was praying for the day when we non-Hindi speakers would get the chance to see a Hindi movie with subheadings(he meant subtitles).

Bah, I knew that this would happen. It happened after my tenth standard board exams too. I wait for this day for so long and when it finally arrives, I have nothing to do. Yes, this is my greatest challenge now - how do I waste my time usefully. It’s a tough one. Maybe its time to take out that cutlery again.

Yes, bharat, the way in which suki was killed was damn funny. We should all kill corrupt politicians and talk about our wonderful acts on AIR. Let the youth awaken

Siddhu said...

Congrats on getting through ur crazy boards. Kept checking ur blog oh-so-often for a new post - I was bored as hell!

U writing TNPCEE? So uve not yet decided whether to come here or stay on in Bharat?

Siddhu said...

If u ask me, if u have the opportunity and the money, don't miss out studying here. An Indian engineerign education is useless, unless its from the IITs.

Antarius said...

about RDB.. did u know that the Defence Minister was bearing a strange resemblance to Jagmohan Dalmia? Coincidence or truth?

Neon said...

@Siddhu,
Its the money. If i get a scholarship then Im coming there.

@Antarius,
Mate, I have the gun.

Yeah, there's always one exam that everyone flops. For me that happened to be the all important maths paper as I got the stuuuupidly long set 3. Sadists, the paper-setters are.
Pull out your cutlery, alright. lets throw it at them. And if you shoot anybody, may it be Ashok Ganguly, the most honourable chairman of the CBSE who can't speak English to save his life.

Siddhu said...

Aww that sucks!!

I mean, man, imagine studying four years in a fuck-all place - wearing formals everyday, not talking to girls, nto using a mobile phone (new Anna U rules btw - I escaped) - for a degree which isn't worth its weight in paper. Tellin' ya, man! Try makin it somehow :)

Neon said...

Well hopefully edinburgh will give me one of the two scholarships that it offers to indian students. keeping my fingers crossed.

Antarius said...

Ashok Ganguly reminds me of a posh lhasa apso or poodle type thing.. something from a disney cartoon
