It’s been many years since I had decided that I will sleep early from the very next day. But even after so many years of countless resolutions and promises to myself, I am still typing this post at 2.39 am. I am feeling sleepy, tired and some backache because of this chair or because of long hours sitting on the computer. Today, I am awaked till this hour as I was doing some college project work because time is running fast and I have my internals from Monday. But nothing new in this we the college goers or may be just students of my college completes their files and all practical works only when few days are left for the exams.
A few days back our chief coordinator asked a boy in my class “How much work have you completed in your file?”
He said smilingly as everyone around him was also smiling “Ma’am, I haven’t started it yet.”
Then the teacher asked him very politely (she is one of the most polite teachers in our college but sometimes her mood changes with a blow).
“When will you start it, beta (son)?”
Very audaciously with a big smile, he said “Ma’am one day before exams our files are made always, so there is still time why worry?”, and a big laugh surrounds the whole class and our polite ma’am also started smiling. She continued again with her over politeness “why beta, complete your work as soon as possible why to delay it when you have time”.
But we never listened to their over polite blabbers and keep on doing all the things with ease in a slow process as slow as it can and always completed the work when the dates are near or when there is a stick on our head.
Though, I don’t think it is the habit of college or school students only, even our elders the most responsible ones also have this habit of delaying work. Mostly we Indians somehow inherit this habit from our ancestors. We Indians are the coolest and bindass people I guess, we can never be on time. Few minutes or hours late are a common thing in our culture or may be a habit of a large part of the Indian population. Okay, I am not cribbing about Indians. After all, I am also an Indian but still, we can’t deny this. :P
For us a clock in our life doesn’t mean anything, we hardly care about whether it is running or not. Although I won’t say that all people in India are like this, there might be many of you who are very punctual and particular about being on time and give utmost importance to the clicking of clocks. The people from Defense services are very punctual, they do all their work on time with a grace, I know this because I have been living in an area which is considered as the hub of defense people in Delhi, all from Army, Air Force, and Navy services can be seen here in the early morning heading to their offices or transit camps or whatever they call it. (Well this is not the real reason, there was a guy from Air Force who used to live in the house opposite mine and … anyway leave that, it’s a different story :P :D)
I really don’t know why I am typing all this and I advise you to read further only if you have nothing important to do because it is all crap. So I was talking about Indians being late, oh no no.. I was telling about my habit of being late. Yes, I am never on time and I think you got to be a risk taker and adventurous kind of a person to be late because you need to cross a lot of hurdles to reach the destination at the last minute. I had driven my scooty just like a bike racer in video games, to reach at the last minute in college for the practical-vivas, as my roll no. is 1 and yes, it is a curse being a roll no.1 in your class.
You have to reach the college first in practicals and go for the viva first in the class and then everyone come to you to ask what the examiner asked. And you feel like the most demanding person in the class, suddenly everyone wants to talk to you. You hear your name from every direction in class and everyone is standing around you to listen what you are saying. But still, you feel cheated (huh.. I have to tell them all the questions and they will have an idea what kind of questions he will ask). But anyway after my viva, I always feel extra happy and say “ah! Finally, it’s over”, no matter it was good or bad who gives a damn.
Okay, that’s enough of my blabbering for today.
PS:- Once in months I get out of my mind and starts typing anything silly or something not so important (you must be thinking when did I write something important, well I also doubt that .. Lol). If you have wasted your time in reading all this, then I am really thankful to you and I am overwhelmed with your idleness. Please, keep it up in future also you will make me happy. :D
Kindly, leave a comment below to let me know about all the good hearted people. After that, you can continue with your not so important work. :P
