WHY EXAMS?

Exams are one of those time when you realise and experience that no one can help you other than yourself. I always asked the question of – why the exam? what sense does it make? and this is the best answer I could come up with – this essential lesson ingrained in us since childhood so we tend to accept it.

What do you think? Let me know in the comment section.

SUNDAY – MONDAY SCENARIO

Sunday. Wow…that very word is enough to bring smiles among millions. while monday, I don’t have to say.

This nuances of sunday – monday scenario is a simple and effective way of training the young about the practicality of life. “Never be too overjoyed or too depressed” coz that absolutely has no affect over the situation. no matter how much we despair it, we need to attend our monday classes.

Part of growing up is to get used to things we hate and to give upon things which we have no say on.

Homeworks, records, assignments, projects, graphs and what not…we do it. we do things as we HAVE to do it, without knowing or asking why.

Initially the urge would have been higher but slowly it fades away , ‘as we have to do what is told’, for reasons as simple as grades.

Honestly, how ┬ámany of us remember the grades we got in elementary. nobody cares to remember as they aren’t important. What’s important is the knowledge that we gain. only when we look back, we know why we did, what we did. but if we were smart enough to know it prior we would have done a whole lot better.

However, though our elders tell us over and over about the importance of education, we neglect it, we think it as a joke and go on in our our own merry way.

Overall, there is lack on both sides or on one side, either way you are going to fall off the cliff. In the latter there is a possibility of you not falling down, provided we do our assigned roles such that we don’t have any regrets in the future.

CHOOSE HAPPINESS

Change is the only permanent thing in life

But many a times we fail to realise

This simple truth.

Expectations are sort of a greed

We set for ourselves.

 

Life is like a breeze

Flowing along with this breeze

As life takes us by,

Moulding and modifying ourselves

According to the circumstances

And yet never forgetting to create happy memories.

 

Happiness is more like a choice than a destination.

It is not something you attain

But something which you experience

At every path of our life.

 

EXAM DREAD

That dreadly minutes

When we receive our exampaper

We feel every inch of our body

Trying to keep us composed, to keep us alive.

Sometimes I wonder,

Why haven’t I passed out

With heart attack.

I hoped I never would

Wonder about these lingering thoughts

Over me passing out

Once I entered college,

But sadly

Somethings never change.
