No time to breath...............!

I start by saying that I do NOT have breathing problem. :P AND I know yoga very well and I am too fit and healthy.However,all these seemed to be threatened by the single introduction of C.C.E. I do accept that childhood is for studying but not for SLOGGING. The following post goes on with the same views and its just a PERCEPTION.Hope you understand English.

How does a class 10 average  student's life go about? Wake up , do the assignments with your maximum dexterity (pending ones obviously)  ,  rush to have a bath before your stupid brother/sister (younger ones mostly) who don't understand your urgency and fight for the bathroom. While having the bath revise your trigonometric identities or chemical identities , go to your bedroom to fit into your uniform , find that it is missing / torn /  your senseless friend's handwriting on it / not ironed , getting panicked screaming at your mom and getting  some back and finally put it on......By the time you would have forgotten what you had studied for the test. So, eat and read at the same time , grab your lunch bag and jump into the car / rush in your cycle / run for your van.
Reach school , write the still pending notes till the assembly bell rings , bear the assembly and the heat , the boring partner jabbering away next to you. Then , go back to class where you got to listen to the teacher's physics lecture and  at the same time finish your chemistry classwork underneath the desk and chat with your friend :P
Test period!! where you gotta remind yourself of the various things you studied , sincerely and co operatively at the same time! Stop yourself from distractions like the teacher sudden talkative mood (only during a test! :O) , your partner poking you constantly for "you know what" and the Noise pollution from the P.T ground and your neighboring classes (who love taking revenge ;) )
Next period itself ,you lose the purpose of coming to school and start sleeping with the great help of your teacher's droning voice! the Period after that will surely be the one where you would have to submit your assignment. You will surely have forgotten about it and curse yourself for sleeping the previous period............ then beg your teacher for extra time, alas! you will have another assignment sheet for completion and "some in text questions" to complete.
Before you have the time to memorize this,ANOTHER teacher walks in apologetically and gives you a "creative" assignment , such as debate/ skit / speech and whatever els that would require preparation....the group activities are the WORST , you gotta make everyone ASSEMBLE , then patiently take their views , form a plan , execute it and revise it! It almost takes 1- 1.5 hr which is impossible to allocate with all the tuition classes, extra classes to complete portions , dramatic workshops and SPOKEN Sanskrit classes!
It's not over yet my friend! The all important test notes arrive!!! You go though the difficulty of opening it without anyone watching, either jump. shout . brag the mark you got!, Or go to your place hide your face and force yourself to feel depressed or WORSE goto your crying friend and console her.
After all this over deal , go home sit on Facebook share your mood , call and torture a friend about the various to Do's for the week.....most likely the next day. Sometimes you even bug them by for a xerox or even beg them for them to do your confusing math lab activity!
You are almost brain dead when you start studying for the next day's test , somehow you study , doze off ,wake up again and CONCENTRATE. You finally goto sleep after catching a glimpse off the last minute of master chef when you remember that you forgot to BRUSH your  teeth! Unhappily you close your eyelids....
Again you wake up and do your ever pending assignments with maximum dexterity....................PHEW!

Mahanati Hangover

There is something about this movie. It has invigorated the romantic in me and stirred me so much that I have no option but pen my thoughts on it. It is not that the film is without flaws – the ‘innocent’ phase of savitri tests our patience , the film maybe guilty of being too in love with its protagonist and background score was sometimes just TOO loud and it ( perhaps understandably) hesitates to go too deep into the character’s psyche or action. However , the film soars above because of only one reason – Keerthy Suresh.
Right before I had the lucky opportunity to watch this movie (twice) , Keerthy Suresh was my least favourite actress. Maybe because she acted in Bhairavaa , Remo and Thodari – the three worst films inflicted on mankind. Maybe because she was more Loosu than ponnu in her loosu ponnu roles. She isn’t typically glamorous or stylish ( not that I particularly care) nor did she show any acting skill which would warrant her inclusion in all the latest films. Until now.


ek gaon mein ek kisan raghu thatha! :P

It's been a week in Pune already!! :O
and believe it or not  - I have fallen in love with this city! <3
or maybe it is just another one of my defense mechanisms , protecting me from shocks. Whatever this is , it has aroused me enough, to write a post! So let me finish this before reality sinks in .
( Side note :

  Defense mechanisms are pretty intriguing . Do you know that I haven't cried a single tear drop yet? My friends think it is some kind of sacrilegious blasphemy from my  part. But hey! If pessimists argue that I have effectively ended one life , I argue back that I have just started a new one :) I do miss chennai . However , I am not going to go gaga over it. Okay I just did . )
I haven't had much chance to discover the city in its entirety yet. But , from whatever I have seen - it is fresh , green , pleasant and mindnumbingly beautiful :')

So here it is . The elusive list of things I have noticed about Pune and my new life in general :

1) I was never a nat…

Pitch dark

A shadow has crept over my soul Inching through my defences Making me darkness herself I wallow in grief over things lost In the invisible bonfire And try to survive on the warmth of embraces Of kindred spirits Only that it feels like a stranglehold And I push them away with a Weaponized tongue and my newfound strangeness Friends and foes are all the same Only difference is the name. I burn through whatever light I get Worried I might never see again In haste I commit little crimes
And wallow once more again.
