Exams, interesting or not ?

Maybe its illogical, but in India each of us are primarily judged on the basis that, how much we have scored in previous exams. Grades scored in exam is considered proportional to our intelligence and knowledge. Thus, it compels the students to perform better and better with each passing exam and to be recognized as the best. This societal pressure often makes them( the exams, weekly tests and all) really hectic and boresome. The season of exams brings with it an unrestful mixture of stress, peer pressure and late night studies. Somewhere and at some time, I have been also a victim to it…

Although it brings the best out of us, but how its results are scanned causes some sort of annoyance. Also, the surroundings where we write the exams are never compelling or appealing . And it inspired me to pen down this short blog, that exams can be made so enthralling. In India as a victim ( or examinee), what are the facilities that we get? A room having basic needs such as fans, lighting, tables, benches and to the utmost level, an air conditioner accompanied by a bottle of water. But, what if I state that in Saudi Arabia each and every examinee has access to water, chocolate, ice cream, sandwich, napkins and tea during the exam hours. You may be surprised to know that each desk has all these items along with the question sets. I think, its a significant step that can be followed in our country to engross the students for the exams organically. What do you think?? Comment me below…

Tales of my childhood…

This is what I looked like in my childhood…

1. I got 70/100 in my favourite subject…

Although now I am not interested in even giving a look at the latest computer, mobile games, but there was a period in my life( class 4) when I was very fascinated about that, especially IGI and COUNTER STRIKE …

I used to play them for hours and hours on a daily basis. And it resulted in, me getting very miserable marks in maths. I tried not to disclose my marks before my parents for few days, but someday or the other I had to face that bitter truth, i.e the PTM. In the night before the day of PTM, I, literally with a trembling voice and teary eyes told my parents that I scored this much…..and all.

You won’t believe, to my very surprise they were not that much reactiveπŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜……

2. I used to pee standing on the window sill…

In my earlier days( say when I was 6-7 years old), I generally followed a very satisfactory routine (of course according to me only). Soon after returning from my school, I preferred to roam here and there without any dress.  And that was often followed by me standing on the window sill of my house and peeing into the garden outside. Sounds really stupid, but that’s absolutely trueπŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰…

3. I was very much addicted towards kite flying…

In winters, my mind and soul was only curious about one thing, kites, kites and kites. And it most often resulted in my parents increasing concern and anger. But, I not caring to anyone’s words dealed in flying kites for long- long sessions. Here, I have one instance to share…

Once I was trying to fly kite on a non- windy( almost no breeze at all) day. So I started to ran errands with the string and kite in my hand to give it a fly. And it accidentally consequenced in, me stepping on a stray dog and her biting me on my ankle( lots of pain and injections)😭😭😭…

Hope you enjoyed it… Au revoir( good bye)

Peculiar content waiting…

A new practice of scrolling the smart screens offers us a whole new bunch of facts and figures, while we are at the college, or having our meals, or chit-chatting with our friends, or attending a seminar, even playing field games. But, I guess(not 100% sure) through scrolling process itself, you might not have encountered these mindboggling facts. So, without wasting any time and effort, let’s get started…

1. Volkswagen group owns these companies-

Audi, Skoda, Lamborghini, Buggati, Porsche, Ducati, Bentley, Seat, Scania ,Man…

2. Women spend almost a year of their life in resolving the dilemma-“what to wear”???

3. India is world’s second largest English speaking country…

4. Lemons contain more sugar than strawberries ( but, we are not able to feel it, because of the higher concentration of citric acid)…

5. Three dogs survived the Titanic sinking( two Pomeranians and a Pekingese)…

6. Einstein loved to smoke… (he believed that smoking πŸ’€ contributes to a somewhat calm and objective judgement in all human affairs)…

Especially, as Indians we demand something more in each and every aspect, so there’s a bonus for all of you…

7. To impress an Indian, talk in Hindi if you are a foreigner and talk in English if you are an Indian ( opposites attract)…

Hahahaha(β—”β€Ώβ—”)

Addio(good bye)….

A step ahead of cruelty…

Why do they call a dog – man’s best friend? Answering to this, we are no different in tagging dogs as our close relative, most loyal and the best companion to have. Then probably in some scenarios we are not justifying it when it comes to our part in the relationship. Are you confused? Ok, let me just quickly resolve your confusion…

Talking about the Yulin dog meat festival in China, Guangxi, it started 10 years back in 2009 and that was basically what we can say a step ahead of cruelty…

A week before the ten day so called festival starts, thousands of dogs, homeless stray dogs, farmed and even 1/3rd of them are domesticated pet( judged from the collars they wear) are shipped from nearby places to Yulin in clingy metal cages, closely packed in unhygienic conditions, with factured elbows, having scars and cuts unrecovered, without proper fooding…

On the following festive days, man’s most loyal friend is subjected to an unimaginable pain by man itself. They are washed and then boiled alive for the sake of Chinese cultural cuisine to be consumed by festival goers. They are slaughtered before their own masters to whom they desired to serve until their last beat. Even what seems more tragedic is that some of the dog owners kill their domesticated dogs well before they are boiled, they say, they can’t witness the unbearable scene of their pet dog screaming till death. What a non-sense they are thinking of…

Although, through the years the number of dog deaths has fallen considerably from 12-15 thousands to some hundreds due to the constant efforts of the animal activists , but still it has its existence in the grass root level. This portrays that how humans act blindfolded when it comes to their greed. And a creature that deserves the same love, loyalty and companionship as it offers, gets a tragic end…

What she did…πŸ₯ΊπŸ₯ΊπŸ₯Ί

In the four day gap between my papers, I was cross questioned by my mind that – whether I would be able to attend the upcoming last paper or not. With each passing second, minute and hour, I was feeling puzzled and restless…

Dated two years back ( 3rd April,2017) during my boards, with all the exams going pretty well, I was cheerful and feeling boosted and was waiting for my last paper (8th April,2017). But,but,but luck does not favour us each time. And now I was that unlucky one. On 4th April, when I woke up, I was feeling some signs of weakness. On looking into the mirror I discovered red- red spots everywhere on my body. In that horrible situation, my parents advised me to consult a doctor. And on doctor’s verification it came out to be measles…

It shook my positive mentality which I was carrying due to the ongoing good papers. As noon approached, my weakness reached a level that required complete bed rest, but my mind was defiant to do so. This damn bad thing absorbed my first two and a half days. And then I was only having a precious day and a half before my social science paper ,which needed a lot of mugging up and memorisation. I was really worried. Then I started my revision with her stimulating words – “be relaxed, have patience and give your best out of these one and a half day. She was constantly supporting me , giving me delicious cuisines in short intervals, advising me to take breaks in between. This continued upto the evening before the exam day. And I was left with seven more chapters. It was a humongous task that demanded a lot of time and effort. But,she accompanied me over the whole night without even blinking her eyes and served me tea at regular intervals. Under the calming hands of hers, to my surprise and to everyone’s surprise somehow I was able to revise the whole text. Then, with half an hour of sleep ( though it sounds ridiculous) I went for the exam, gave my paper and at last overcoming all such difficulties , passed it with flying colors.

She was none other than my first teacher, nurtuter for lifetime, my sweet mother…

Love you Mama…
