The EXAM Mania

DAY 05

Yet another exam. ๐Ÿ˜“
We have all wondered at some point in our life. What is the purpose of these exams ? To test us? And how exactly do they test us by asking us to learn and produce the same information in the same words?
I am sure the person who first thought of this system of exams would have wondered too. But then he would have thought “C’mmon Every one checks knowledge. Let’s test their memory” And see he was so right.
Yes . I can explain. What is the one thing all of us buy today? Mobiles. And what is the first thing that we see in a mobile. It’s speed and it’s memory. Right?

So? Do you realise? How far sighted our forefathers were! They made us give the same test of speed and memory.
Ouch
I am sorry dear phone. For having judged you so much. And i am sorry other phones for not having bought you.โ˜น
Thank you exam setters . Thank you. ๐Ÿ˜ญ
And yes one more thing. Screw you.๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜‘

Let me remind you ,if it was not already crystal clear that We are Not machines. ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿป
Each of us has a different capability in our own unique way.

But anyways. I am not the bashing kind. So you are forgiven. As it is , given the type you are , you are probably not reading it ๐Ÿ˜›

So lets forget the exam setters and other people. Let’s talk about ourselves.
Yeah. I am selfish. So lets talk about ourselves from my point of view ๐Ÿ˜‚ ( do share yours too, please ๐Ÿ˜€)
ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย A day in the exam hall

So the instant I walk into the Hall , I remember all my Gods. Not because I want an easy paper. Or strength to write down the exams. Because I want the most lenient and lazy invigilator. ๐Ÿ˜‚.
After I have found the invigilator and judged him based on his past experiences , I take my seat.
A look is exchanged among all the near and dear neighbours. Time for true brotherhood man ! ๐Ÿ–๐ŸปHigh five.
Trust me , if the government departments would have even half the cooperation and understanding like friends in an exam hall..each country would be a better place to live ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜„

Fine. Bring it on . Bring on the question paper.
The first instruction. Not all questions are compulsory.
Wow. Some blessed souls we are. ๐Ÿ˜
And then I look at the questions.
Oh. Not all questions are compulsory , because I won’t be able to attempt the remaining 5 too.
So you need not answer all the questions. You can just laugh and laugh again at the little game played by the teacher. Laugh till you cry. Because eventually you will.
๐Ÿ˜
Now there I am with the question paper. As I start attempting I hear someone call me. My friends need me . I must go . I check out the angle of the face of the invigilator and turn to my friend. You have to be real quick at this. Q4 he asks. Back to paper. Oh yes i know it. I turn back my face to help the needy.
Now I don’t know if you have faced the same situation too , but every time I am about to open my mouth to either tell the answer or ask a question the billion dollar question hits me bang on. ” Should i shout? Or should I whisper? Will my voice echo??๐Ÿ˜ณ”.

It’s a life saving decision you need to take in a matter of seconds. Hopefully it’s the right choice you make so that you don’t have to repeat yourself.

And so an hour passes. I look around. Every one is busy . Some are racing with their pens. Others with their mind.
Ahh this cruel mind.๐Ÿ˜
It makes sure it doesn’t drop a chance to not wander. Thoughts. All kind of them pop up in my mind. Doing exactly what I don’t want them to. So sometimes I will be humming a song I last heard. Or checking out guys and the dresses of girls. Man! Some girls do maintain their fashion sense even during exams๐Ÿ˜‚
65d5b19a53961995067a096136e34e99
It’s the voice of some one that startles me and brings me back to reality. Mostly the squeal of the invigilator.
I rush back to the next question.
And I don’t know how weird or normal it is. But I completely forget the answer once I start writing it. It comes back in phases ๐Ÿ˜‚
Then comes the most certain question. Obviously from the portion of syllabus you left. ๐Ÿ˜’
I look at the question. I knew it. I wouldn’t know the answer. But a guess sometimes works ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜›

Slowly we move on to the last phase of our exams. The “last 30 minutes remaining”phase.
You know there are times when you exactly know what you are doing? ๐Ÿ˜Š
Yes. This is definitely not one of those. ๐Ÿ˜‚
I have no idea how many more questions remaining. Or what I thought i would frame their answers like.
The last 30 minutes bro!๐Ÿ––๐Ÿป
You don’t think. You just vomit albeit with a pen, on the paper, trying your best to make it a legible and recognisable collection of words.
Often I think, it’s not being the most studious that helps you in an exam.( You are the most disturbed and disturbing fellow present though ๐Ÿ˜‚). It helps if you are ambidextrous. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป
My knuckles are literally crying after today’s exam ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜‚

Finally the 30 minutes over.
But actually no exam is over until there is that one guy or girl in the hall who goes “Mam please one minute more. Sir just last line.”.
And the others staring at them like “Was there so much to write? “๐Ÿ˜›

Then you come out of the examination Hall. You face a different kind of exam here. The reality. Because how hard you try not to , people will discuss. And they will make you realise that your answers are wrong. And that you screwed up๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Sigh!
Oh wait. How I did forget to mention that one cool guy๐Ÿ˜Ž who walks out of the examination Hall an hour before.
It sometimes hurts to see how lucky the people are who have given up on these worldly possessions ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Well this is how my experience is about… on a typical exam day in a typical Indian college or school.
I am sure your experiences would differ. Do share your opinions.There is no right or wrong here after all ๐Ÿ˜€

To Deal with THE STUPID

Welcome back Dumasaphobics ๐Ÿ˜‰ .ย 

If you don’t know/remember dumasaphobia, do check out this link first ย –ย The FEAR of THE STUPID

As promised , here i am ,with tips to effectively deal with the stupid

And like every other thing there is a list ย of the do’s and the don’ts .

Seeing and feeling , ย the intensity of the problem , I will not refrain you from taking actions in your defence. Therefore there is a very small list of the don’ts

  • Don’t kill them.ย 

That’s it.

If ย you are any bit like me , then I understand that the very first instinct is to pick up the object nearest to you (from a flower vase or a knife to even a handbag ) and take away their right to life , which they have been clearly misusing.ย 

murder (1)

However all peace you attain would go in vain, since you will now have to go to jail.

So well ,it would be stupid (oops!) of you to take this step!.

While we are on the topic of killing things, I have read at a lot of places and been advised a lot to beat these people at their own game with their own rules . ย This could mean killing the rude stupids with kindness and ย killing the dumb acting stupids with higher levels of dumbness.

Although this does sound really fun and interesting and also satisfying at some levels , it can really backfire in case of ultra stupids on the other side! With quite an experience of dealing with them I ย can say that after a while , they start to enjoy it and you are left with feeling of being used again and again.

Well then with the most easiest and satisfying option done away with , what are the possible DO’s that MUST be followed.ย 

  1. ACCEPT –
    The first step to solve any problem in life is acceptance. Accept that these people are stupid. That you can not do anything ,any damn thing about it . That God has been unfair to them ย or to you , what ever is easier to accept! ย Understand the situation in hand .
  2. SMILE .-
    Like literally, keep those lips curved right up , always. Onto their face.
    ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ :).
    Inside , you maybe tearing up like THE HULK , but outside you remain a sweetie pie, the harbinger of happiness. ย  ย  ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ ย  ย ๐Ÿ™‚ .
    bitch
    People will call you fake , but remember it is for the society’s good . When their actions fail to have a reaction , gradually the actions will also fail .
  3. I.G.N.O.R.E
    The most golden words ever said on this planet are definitely “Ignorance is a bliss ” . Yes it is difficult but not impossible . Accept that the person is stupid , but refuse to acknowledge them. ย Their could be a zillion other things to think about at that time like the colour of your nail paint , ย the weather conditions and how the Met Dept always gets its prediction wrong. You can talk to unicorns if you want.
    But just don’t pay attention to the stupid acts going around you .
    you don’t want to go crazy .
    Your life is precious after all.
  4. ย IF YOU MUST , TALK FACTS –
    In case you do have to discuss and talk and adjust with the other side , then refrain yourself from discussing opinions .
    Because to them , not only do your opinions don’t matter but facts , figures and reality are also equally useless
    . -_- .
    Follow the principle to only talk facts and only listen to facts . To ensure no arguments further, keep Google available.jellyfish.jpg
  5. INTRODUCE TWO OF A KIND
    It is very rare that you find only one of their kind in any place. Go ahead .
    Be the matchmaker .
    Let the like repel like.
    Let there be decreased net stupidity.
  6. PLAY ALONG
    Now this is real fun. “Mirror , Mirror on the wall Who doesn’t want to be the mightiest of all ? ” No one.
    Well , then what better way to de throne the kings and queens and princes and princesses of Stupidity than being more stupid than them ?
    Come on , Play along a bit.
    Play stupid once and then back to normal and back to stupid again .
    Drive the stupids to a level of confusion ,they can’t attack from ย ๐Ÿ˜›

 

Well , this is all the gyaan i have to share.
Please feel free to give your opinions and advice for the sake of the DUMASAPHOBIC Society ย ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ !!

 

 

 

 

Manners cost nothing. Try them maybe?

Have you ever felt the need to literally bang your head on the wall , so hard that each nerve of your brain smashes and blood oozes out and the muscles cant go back to their regular contraction and relaxation ,because they become so rigid?

No?

Me neither.

But what i am feeling is the need to bang my head slightly till it hurts a bit and then kick myself in the face. Actually just pretend to .

(Now who would want to hurt such a pretty face ? ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) ย This I am sure , you have too.

Had it not been the land of Mahatma , the pioneer of non violence, I would have done this to others , though.

Because its so frustrating to literally experience the lack of basic etiquettes from human beings around you.

And lo! i am not even asking for them to you know , ย RSVP me about the dinner party ย I invited them too ! Because, its too much too ask from people who give a ” miss call” ( a ย single ring and then they disconnect) ,cos they missed my call earlier. -_-

So dear, if you are one these , then take this post as a final chance , an ultimatum to rectify your ways of dealing with me and other normal people ,before we take the first few lines literally , except just use your head instead! ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜›

Yes i know its difficult for you suddenly change and become a better manner-full person in just a few days. You haven’t been able to do that in at least two decades of your existence, so i understand the difficulty. Lets just try baby steps this time.

Try ,try and try harder till you don’t succeed in not doing the following. Okay ? ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Borrowing things and having a memory lossย : ย In case you weren’t aware of the beautiful word “Return” ,let me teach it you . One of the many meanings of the words is to Give BACK , hand BACK , send BACK , anything you take. So whether its money,clothes,books or even a pen , for the love of God, “return”it back to its owner, before you loose the memory of having borrowed anything at all. If you want to keep it , Steal it . Do not Borrow it and keep it . Okay ? ๐Ÿ™‚

 

  • Awakening the DJ spirit at odd hours and places : Yeah , I know you love music . Music is love for eternity. Its calm and soothing. And its the soul of every party :D. But, start playing those party numbers at 3 in the night or in the library or in the train , trust me , i will make you eternal . Okay ? ๐Ÿ™‚ .Yes. Those earphones canย save you , obviously !

 

  • Being the loud speaker : You love to talk? That’s good. Talking helps share our feelings with friends. But if you talk in those decibels , your friends will go deaf. And your secrets will be out in the open if there are people around you, not your friends. we don’t want to know what your boyfriend asked you to wear.Neither are we interested to laugh on the joke you thought was funny ย . ย So well, just Ssshhhhh…Okay? ๐Ÿ™‚

 

  • So are you the Rude Dude ? : Do you have that inner god/goddess of yours tell you that you are the master of the world ?ย And that the other earthly beings are just some support staff? Heart breaking as it may be, its not true darling . Speak only what you can listen. Okay ? ๐Ÿ™‚

 

  • The Damsel in Distress. Forever.! : You are my favourite kind. I am in awe of your sheer ability to play this card every time you are asked to do some work. You are always sick . You are always unaware. And oh You are also always the victim. Fellow , these things work once and twice. Other times , the people around you are just being generous and ignorant. Get a grip of yourself and stop trying to find ways to excuse yourself. Do some work. Contribute to this world, you otherwise little piece of waste. Okay?

 

  • The private users of public property : Its called Public for a reason, mate!. Its OURS. Not MINE. Stop scribbling on the tables, stop tearing the seat covers , you get it . As one friend points out ” Leave your toilet and Newspaper just the way you want it”. Okay? ๐Ÿ™‚

c6fec55a184de1bbf0c513913601c218

Hoping for the best as always ย ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› .

Ahhh..finally! Writing down all of it ย has so eased down my frustration . Its time Iย welcome my cheery self back again ย :* ย โค

P.S : Do share your views of other such dramatic kinds of people to be wary of. It may help them ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜›

 

What The !!!!!

So , who the hell does Shahrukh Khan think he is? or for that matter even Salman khan? Does Hrithik actually come as close to thinking ย he looks like a Greek god??? ย Can you digest the fact that ladies go gaga over even Akshay Kumar and Arjun Rampal and Shahid Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor? And what about Ranveer Kap…no…Singh !!!!!!

Like why on the face of earth ! ?? And please , for the love of god! Don’t even get started on those firangs! Brad pitt , Tom cruise ..and yeah who is that latest one? Zayn Malik!ย 

BEFORE YOU SWITCH TABS OR SEND ME HATE MESSAGES, CONTINUE READING. Yeah , again for the love of God!

I thought all of this piece of crap ( yes, i accept it is crap ๐Ÿ™‚ ) yesterday while going to my workplace . Even though ย i hate as much as the thought of it , i have to take these ย one of a kind , truly Indian ( ๐Ÿ˜€ ) shared autorickhshaws to office .

But mind it, you don’t sit in these . You fit in them .

So once i fit in one of them ,all i could do was stare outside on the road and absorb the breathtaking view of all kinds of road transport, twisting and turning and honking .

And then IT happened. Like it happens every time. Every day . With every one.

A not so young and still not so old ย man on the road , on his ravishingly old bike , winked at me . And just to make sure , that i ย do see him , he did it again . I had to continue seeing his stupid face and stupid eyes as i couldn’t turn my head aroundย ( i told you, we are fitted and fixed in just one position).

Not that i was surprised by that man .

Nothing new. :/

Today its a wink . Tomorrow its a see-i -eat- pan -and -have -dirty- and-crooked- teeth smile . On other days , someone will try to feel you up . There are days when you will hear the eeriest of comments and yet on ย others it will be some song ,that you wont be found even dead listening to.

So yes it was nothing new. i followed the mantra “ignorance is a bliss”, rolled my eyes and closed them . ย -_-

Once i closed them , i steered right into the minds of such men and tried to think , what goes on in their mind ???

yeah , that’s when i came out with that crap i wrote before. This is exactly what must be going on their minds!!!!right?

these perverts actually deserve to be the stars.

look at their confidence people!.

All he needs is a wink ๐Ÿ˜‰ , like this to swoon me away on his two wheeler to land of fantasies!!! . They are the Christian Greys of their worlds. My inner goddess should awaken and fast. His songs and comments should fill me with the desires of lust ! Ahh, he is right ! Who the hell these if-looks-could-kill-good-looking-celebs think they are .

Its these roadside romeos we should drool for !

(Trust me , the disgust you felt while just reading this above statement, is nothing when compared to the nauseating disgust i felt while typing it . )

And then , my office came. I OPENED MY EYES. THESE PEOPLE ARE SICK. AND THEY NEED HELP.ย 

Your help. My help. Our help. Any kind of help. All kind of helps.

You could be the philanthropist reformer of the society and conduct workshops and awareness camps.

OR

The next you come across such a sick person , You could just thrash the living hell out of his system. ( I prefer this ,seriously)

The choice is YOURS. But the need is OURS.

 

Here is a you tube link , ย to one of the just rightly made video on ย the issue.

Still Staring ?

Do check it out

BeSafe ๐Ÿ™‚

P.S : SRK , I still love you โค

P.P.S Try and get the Sarcasm right or else you will ruin this ย ๐Ÿ˜€
