It’s been ages(again!) since I blogged…seems like I’m just not able to manage it.
As I’m blogging it’s precisely 1:09 AM on my watch…well past mid-night. I’m sitting on my favorite bean-bag in my room with a couple of books cluttered on my bed nearby, some club music on the radio running in the background, a couple of powerpoint presentations finished, and a distinct silence around…
Just before I got to blog, I walk out of my room onto the terrace of our home just for a breather. On one far side I could see the lights of Sasken Technologies(even though it’s about 2 kms away, it’s clearly visible since there’s no object disruption in it’s direction), telecom firm on the opposite side a few apartments, there’re lights on in a few rooms(bet they aren’t blogging like me!! he he), then the empty street.
I had a fairly good day today(I seem to be this forever optimist and I generally say that even on a bad day :))…it was a holiday….and there’s another one folllowing tomorrow…
But for another reason , my parents have got a wind of the fact that I’m into a lot more things than my studies….they discovered one of the checks given to me by an MNC in one of my shirt pockets(I happen to have forgotten it). Ofcourse, they asked me what it was and how I got it and such stuff….they soon pull me up me to my study room on the upper floor of our home….by the look of it they could realise that not much of studying was going on. They basically found everything except books!
From business magazines/journals, to printed emails from clients to a few CD’s with loaded software, my laptop running a keynote by Philip Kotler, to just about anything that you would not expect in an 18 year old’s room! yeah, the conventional stuff were there too….a few MP3’s, blah blah!
But to my surprise, my parents looked quite amazed(they don’t know a thing about the fact that it’s been ages since I’ve seen my Acad books), they realize that there’s no point in buying me out of this….(I also looked kinda wierd then, a sleevless tee with a 3/4th on) so, they tell me to focus on my Academics and “set my prioritites straight”, they think that acads is everything…so want me to slog out . But before leaving , my father(who until now was rather quite and observant) finishes off by saying(warning rather!) that if ,and I mean “IF”, my marks take a lower decline, so will my business interests and ventures……”so you better study”…. I close the door and with great difficulty open my Math text work out a few problems……to avoid some future threats and problems….
