Hmm.....part of being in a vacation continues!!! yesterday I had to attend a fucntion meant for some old people.... I was forcefully taken inspite of many pleads and excuses i gave to my mom!!! And i got ripe there (pak gaya). however there was one moment things lightened up and i post it here.....
There was a anchor on stage whose duty was to announce the name of those people and they would come up on the stage.... he seemed to hav a list of adjectives viz; 'active' 'energetic' 'dynamic' 'athletic' 'dedicated' 'sincere' etc; etc; out of which he assigned nay two to a particular person.To one of them he assigned 'ACTIVE AND DYNAMIC'. You must have seen the expressiononthe face when someone in hte audience shouted 'ACTIVE AND DIABETIC'.
I have nothing against grandfathers but wuld like to mention them in this post !!! some common questions you got to face from them
Where are you studying?
This is a question you will be asked by the same grand uncle every time you approach him!!! thats how they start !!! I have answered this question about 52,134 times and 2,134 times to the same person!!!
How are studies there?
I want to tell them that they are spelled the same allover inida S-T-U-D-I-E-S..... but gotta answer everythin's well !!!
Which branch of engineering?
I answer mechanical engineering and here they give the expression that it is a untouchable branch..for them only ece and cse are the branches!! and the point i did gone so far to study is stressed more than that the college is an nit. true i couldnt get those branches but i dint even opt for electronics or electrical......I feel mechanical suits me.
Two more quetions yu got to face from them when you go to your frenz house !!!!!
Where is your home???
As soon as you answer this question you will be asked if that is your own home as if they are going to gift you one if it was rented !!!
Waht does your father do?
Huh?? Early morning yoga teacher!!! from 6 am to 9 am as neighbourhood doodhwala and paperwala then 9 am to 6 pm in a mnc and then from 6pm to 9pm as a rickshaw puller and then 9pm onwards night watchman!!!! Any problems????
Thats life in hols....with grand pa's.....They are mostly retired and spend hours wathcing and hearing news....To-be engineers will get a lot of suggestions and things like 'you should make the country proud'...there are a particular species who lecture on aim of havin a goal and the goal in having an aim and blah blah .... Duh!!! During cricket matches you will find critizisms showered upon....and if in a loosing match if a bowler earns a hard-earned wicket it is termed a 'fluke'
But belive me they got an immense experience.....and i mean the word immense!!!!
P.S : Love you frenz!!! i will be back to unlimitedness soon!!!
