Don't ask me what the title is supposed to mean, I have no clue. Now that we've got that sorted out with, we shall continue with the programme, which is, the month long update of my life that no one really asked for.

I have been busy. Very bery busy. Work killing me would be an understatement, but it wouldn't be true either, cause I'm actually alive. So much for exaggeration. But the past month saw plenty of goof ups, the kind which were so abysmal that they could only be categorized as "long term learning experiences". I only wish I wasn't made to learn so much at such a short span of time.

Speaking of learning, the father decided that the consequence of the Costing/Financial Management fiasco would be me re-attending the class, except I go to a different teacher now, SP.
SP is everything that Pattu Sir wasn't, and probably never will be. He encourages mugging, doesn't believe in extra information/general knowledge and calls concepts 'buck-buck'.
To cut a long story short, he's my new God (He's an all India FIRST ranker, so shush!).

Class (we have 4 hour sessions in the evenings and 2 hour sessions in the mornings) and work took up all my time last month, so much so that I didn't even have the time to for what is definitely one of my favourite festivals, Navrathri. This year, I couldn't visit even one house for Golu. I actually missed the Oh-do-you-sing-hehe-no-I-don't-sing-oh-try-singing-hehe-no-if-I-sing-all-the-golu-dolls-will-run-away-ho-ho-ho-what-a-funny-girl ritual at every house I would frequent. But judging from the number of plastic assortments (mostly useless) that have invaded our kitchen almirah this month, I could say with confidence that it went well.

Upon other inconsequential news, I am on study leave now. Which means I should be studying. But I'm not, and it really makes me so mad. And when I'm mad, I can get pretty violent and who knows, I might end up doing something drastic, like exercise.

Impossible happenings apart, today is Bapu's birthday. Plenty of 8th standard English Essay Competition (500 words) have wondered about the state of India had Bapu-ji managed to stay alive and had a look at India today. All I can say is, we should be thankful that he isn't, cause the situation is such that it would make a man like Gandhi become a fake Armani T-shirt wearing terrorist.

What can I say, except Non-Violence? Its gone, di.

  2. Well, on the positive note u did not have to forcefully gush down 38.9 kilo's of sundal that would have lead to the generation of gaseous material that could be otherwise termed as weapons of mass destruction. Saddam would have kidnapped u if he'd be alive. Thankfully neither us Bapu-ji to see the sad state of things or rather funny state of things :-P

  3. Did you study on the Saraswati puja thingy day? You are not supposed to study on that day. Maybe that's why you failed your exams.

    Amazing stuff. I believe golus are means by which maamis with unmarried sons scout for daughters-in-law.

  7. 1.) What's Golu?
    2.) You cannot diss 8th standard English Essay Competitions (500 words). They used to be a way to show off our.. ahem... intellectual side.
    3.) Is the exercise bit related to the Octopus title? You know... flexibility et al? Ok, I think I should stop exerting my brains.

  16. Okay so I came her via Lemon's blog(so I could kill time) and noticed your reference to Pattu Sir. I love Pattu, I attended his inter and final classes and I am so in love with him (not in that way but I did have an almost crush on the accounts teacher, I forget his name). Who is SP? What on earth does he mean by buck buck? hopefully your exams went well. Mine never did :(

  17. Thank you so much for stopping by Indian Princess :) it is I who is honored by your visit . Keep in mind that although great design does play a pivotal role within the vestiges of cyberspace - nothing , not even a well designed site can take the place nor ever be a substitute for great literary content ( such as yours ! ) . Now the truth is : I believe that both ( design & content ) can be integrated and combined tastefully , and I would def love to design a beautiful site where you can feature all your awesome writing - you def deserve to have a visually captivating site to go along with your great content . Let me know if you would like to create a nice professional looking blog site to accompany your literary genius @ prose ! :D - because , thats what I love to do : put together great looking sites for great people like you ! :D & umm..no, I dont charge ok ? Im just a DezignDiva geek :D Hope to hear from ya soon & I wish you a great 2010 - may it fulfill all of your dreams & aspirations ! Hugs across the miles : Mia 

  20. I stumbled onto your blog from Bosey. I love it, and was surprised that you're a CA student. (yeah, blame the stereotypes).

    How do you not get scared looking at Padhuka Books? It's one thing that scares me, but not as much as today's result.

    All the best for yours.
