Dilemma : distractions vs examinations!


 Before typing anything else- this is my 35th post! The no. is significant for me as  I have those many classmates in my current section - 10 B .I would like to dedicate this to each one of them - although 9th was way better - they became too nerdy for my liking this year - still I will really miss them and dedicate this for them! :)







So now the Examinations are gonna start in 3 days and I have had 14 days of study holidays which I have used up - idk if wisely or foolishly and have completed some important lessons. However I do not feel very happy about the way I have studied in the given gracious amount of time! WHY? coz of Distractions - human made and nature made! =D


  • TV :                                                                                                                                                            The great idiot box will easily feature in anyone's distraction list! That too with the coming of Dexter , world cup and millions of mind blowing movies it sure did distract , I didn't watch it THAT much , but I remember once  when I started watching 2 and 1/2 men and ended up watching Detroit 187 ,Simpsons and friends without a break. If I had studied as sincerely as I watched TV I would have got a century in all subjects from 1st - 10th std ( cricket influences speech too)

  • Blog!:                                                                                                                                                         I cannot bring myself to call it a distraction - but that is the truth. However it is the most useful , productive and important distraction I had during this time. I posted only 1 post in this time - love story part 2 . However my increasing reading list ( and interesting) has left me many hours behind my exam schedule. Also , I used up so much time thinking about 1 particular blog topic - which is yet to be published , although I used to think only when while I was bathing , eating , sleeping and watching tv ( which is just about what I actually did =P ) 
  • working?! :                                                                                                                                                            However extra ordinary it sounds I did help my grand mother with some household work! Well...not voluntarily ......she screamed at me a million times and I would have looked very offensive if I did not - what did I exactly do? - when the maid bunked ( which is almost everyday) - I mopped the house thank god no one broke anything ( it was that wet!) , hung the clothes in the sun ( which is unpleasant in this hot summer , my legs burnt ) , went to the shop ( which is actually fun! You can usurp some money =P ) and had to switch all the lights off ( which is not as easy as it sounds , because my father , grand father , mother ,brother heck! everyone leaves it ON!!) These were the times that I actually felt that I was wasting my time and constantly warning my grand mother that if I fail in the exams it is her fault =P

  • Books:                                                                                                                                                                                                             I read the following books during the study hols : hotel (master piece), girls in tears ( my first ever pinky book . which was pretty lame ) , a wonderful new book called Mayil will not be quiet!!! I really love that book!!! and now I am in the process of reading ' all creatures big and small' by James Herriot which is so from the heart that I want to read continuously but sadly the exams are restricting me from that! This is reason enough why i am lagging behind my schedule! If  I start a book I can't concentrate in studies until I finish the book. eg. I couldn't stop myself from reading a book called ' a place called freedom' 1 day before the math revision exam! ( that's called guts!) 

  • Texting:                                                                                                                                              Well , this is not exactly the perfect time to steal you mother's phone and make it your number. I dont know why but I did it!! So when I am in the act of studying my annoying message alert screams! Tada I have to reply! Actually I do enjoy doing this.......but wrong timing right?

  • Talking:                                                                                                                                               If texting is a sin , I am committing a  murder by speaking on the phone! I don't know why , what and how but I somehow manage to never stop speaking on the phone till it becomes too late for me to study. The worst part is I have to feel guilty for having fun! Shivani - I think I spoke with her for atleast 20 hrs this 14 days , Poori - all I can say is more than that =P 



  • World Cup :                                                                                                                                               This is what I call tragedy! God has manufactured this distraction so that I would fail in the exams! Woah! Surely I am not missing the world cup for this STUPID exams! I watch all the matches I can =P , play the fantasy league thing on cricinfo , discuss about the matches India played ( last one is too much! Ind vs SA )                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     

    Even writing about distraction is a distraction nowadays! After proof reading this I feel guiltier than ever!! A good therapy for wasting time! From now on exam mode turned - ON ! Bye!

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 :

Happy sunday!

So Sundays are the best  since it gives us the much needed time to be our lazy potato-selves. And on what other day can I throw my random-est thoughts at you guys without shaping them professionally? What I am going to do is casually throw some ideas at y’all and if it is worthy of discussion we can make a full fledged post.
1)
    Surveillance is BAD. Then why track our Swiggy* guys?  All of us hate it when our school installed surveillance cameras in the corridors or when they were introduced them in our workplaces. It is not a good feeling to have the Big Brother watching you , even if it is just a fat security guard bhaiya** who is never going to look at you. I’m sure you will have the same reaction if your employer attaches a GPS tracker on you.  While it certainly gives a sense of comfort to know where your food parcel is every minute of the day , isn’t it invading the delivery guy’s workplace privacy to track him every second? If they give a timeframe of 30 minutes and deliver i…

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.

She…
