yeah its a countdown.
actually i loved the ones successfully completed by my e-friends, M, Hira and Leena…so i thought why not launch one myself?..though admittedly there was a slight problem;shortage (in fact extinction) of a mandatory dulha..err are you picturing me in red & gold, looking at the deserted road,,whisperig guests in the background?? hehe,picture away but this countdown is about the shot-in-the-foot exam i decided to take without anyone egging me on..since i heard from someone (on the inside) that record 12,000 (TWELVE FREAKING THOUSAND) candidates applied this year for vacancies that are mostly around 200, i am exhibiting pre-traumatic stress disorders symptoms…for instance my sleeping hours have stretched to 12 , from 12 am to 12pm while rest of them are probably cramming up to their noses…i do weird calculations on calculator every 3 minutes, err i assume my marks for ever paper n add them up to see if they cross 700…if they dont i keep on adding 5 and 6s here n there, until they finally do..then hugely satisfied with my estimated performance, i take some time off to watch HBO movie..when credits roll, i run back to my room to study some more..but hard work tends to wear off my delicate body, i end up curling up beneath the blankets..oh dont you just love winter?..then i get up after a while,freaked out by some nightmare featuring my failure.. to ward off the evil feeling, i seek reassurance in my———books? Nah..Calculations!!! i do them all over again..after scoring 700, i open a book or two and study upto 3 hours…3/12 hours is better average than say, 3/24..dont you think?
and to jazz things up a bit more, my immediate family has left no stone unturned in letting the distant family n friends know about my upcoming appearance in the said exam,,,, to gather maximum prayers ofcourse…
i think i wanted to point out the similarities between a wedding and this exam in this post..but somehow they have slipped out of my mind…care to help me in recalling them?
ps: i am not that good with counting…but since its a countdown, i’ll appreciate if anyone can confirm that from today to 6th march, there is a gap of 44 days.
