Cricket: Sreesanth Swinging His Bat..... Dhoom Machale?!

Cricket: This is the # 10 batsman Sreesanth, of India, responding to the South African Andre Nel's comment "Man, just don't swing your bat, have a heart to hit the ball", by hitting the very next ball for the maximum six runs and by showing his "heart" in front of Nel's face..... I hope this has made my clip more clear to the non-cricketing public!

Marks dont make a person-- Do they?

It is all over……exams that where haunting me is finally over… now I am a free bird for the next 6 months till the next set of exams that will haunt me……well let me make it clear…..not all exams haunt me… only these particular exams haunt me day and night…..they are my exams to CWA (cost and work accountants)….for the uninitiated (definitely many will be uninitiated ) it is this course which I study along with my bachelors course in commerce for becoming a cost auditor…..similar to an chartered account….the difference is we concentrate on the cost areas, while they concentrate on financial matters…..well all that is fine but the exams aren’t that fine and cool..

Okai, the process to become a cost auditor is that you have to pass one foundation course if you want to do along with your college graduation, and 4 stages with 2 for the intermediate and 2 for final…the course length is if u successfully clear everything is 3 and half years!!......I had very successfully passed my foundation with almost a rank (it was totally unexpected of me!!! )
And I had now appeared for my stage 1 of my intermediary stage…I had to write 4 papers.

The exam started on 26th December…at 9:30 am….my first paper was cost accountancy….it was a nice paper except for one stupid sum in labour , it was all well and good, the next day I had information technology, well it was ok not bad!.....and then I had law on 28th even that was king of good……now came the major one today……business taxation’….it was the worst ever paper in my life……… ..I have never in my life performed so badly, I am just every one that I pass with 40%, I am not asking for much……my goodness I never knew until now the importance of each and every mark in the paper…..I was literally scanning the paper to rite for sum 40 marks…..I wonder why I had not cried yet, coz I am a person who will cry if I get below 60%!!.....and now I am praying for a pass….what an irony….. still somehow I only felt sad for me and the examiner who is going to correct my paper…I have developed new provisions for taxation, if they ever put me in the tax department, the government will have to go for a run I guess!

Okai, everybody in my class has already decided to meet in June, that is the next time when you can write the exam again if you flunk in any paper… I got the paper, wrote whatever I knew and didn’t know….finished in 2 hours, the 3 hour paper….okai I did this for all the exams not new for tax alone…..I looked around the room and saw each and every student looking away from the paper every 10 minutes, not that I didn’t do it…..even I was a victim to it….and there was one guy who left in just 15 minutes after receiving the paper…finally I gave the paper came out, one by one all of my friends were like, 100% macha I wont pass….I am gonna rite again, now this discouraged me even more!!! I just came home before anybody can ask me anything! I was studying for these exams like a madwoman till 4 in the morning, then went to sleep at 4 get up at 7:30, get ready in an hour and reach the centre by 9:00…and for this the result I get is one worst paper….

Well I seriously demand people, marks does NOT make a person, it is what you have learnt makes up your personality….but is it true practically in this generation……doest marks count a lot more that what you learn…I tell you I have got an ok knowledge in taxation...but you see tax laws change every assesment year, so u got to be alert....(kill the person who found this system of tax..or better let me kill the person who included it in my cost accountancy course sylabus!!)…..but it did not fetch me marks… ..they say you must be alert to changes in society, bookish knowledge doesn’t help you…but in the end does any organization recruit a person just because he has knowledge….no they recruit because he has the required qualifications and certificates in the competitive world! what makes these certificates – marks ultimately right!!.....when will they change this system in this world….I would be the happiest person in this world….

Well they aren’t gonna change it in my era….so the only thing I can do is pray, pray and pray that I pass in this TAX paper and the least you people can do is pray along with me…as now I cant change anything in the way I wrote the paper now…

Okai people, I can’t go on and on about my worst paper in life…..but what I am scared is I have never ever flunked in anything in my life, now I am dead scared that there are chances of it happening….and I can’t bear it if it happens!!...but still I may be a person writing a blog on ‘first flunk good flunk’!!.. but the damage would have already been made isn’t it…..

So now that the exam I dread is over, you can see Zanychild more active over here in this space …..Till then…..let me sign of for the period…

Santa clause sings for you

Santa Claus singing Jingle Bells.
so there u go.....sing along....jingle bells jingle bells jingle all the way!! and a MERRY CHRISTMAS!! from me

Dashing through the snow
On a one-horse open sleigh,
Over the fields we go,
Laughing all the way;
Bells on bob-tail ring,
making spirits bright,
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh

A day or two ago,
I thought I'd take a ride,
And soon Miss Fanny Bright
Was seated by my side;
The horse was lean and lank;
Misfortune seemed his lot;
He got into a drifted bank,
And we, we got up sot.

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
Jingle all the way!
What fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

A day or two ago,
the story I must tell
I went out on the snow
And on my back I fell;
A gent was riding by
In a one-horse open sleigh,
He laughed as there
I sprawling lie,
But quickly drove away.

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
Jingle all the way!
What fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

Now the ground is white
Go it while you're young,
Take the girls tonight
And sing this sleighing song;
Just get a bob-tailed bay
two-forty as his speed
Hitch him to an open sleigh
And crack! you'll take the lead.

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
Jingle all the way!
What fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

Gifted & Talented

Individuals in this world are talented in one way or the other. It is up to the parents to find the talents of their child….my mom did the same thing, she tried pretty hard to find my talents, and let’s take a ride down my memory lane to find how much she had succeeded.

In my kinder garden classes we used to have ‘CUB’ classes for creative work, me and my cousin were in the same we used to smear paint on each other…this gave the wrong idea to my mom that I love to paint apparently. So there started my drawing and painting classes, and well I have done fairly well in it, that I do oils….but you know I dont really have a passion for it….but I just do it.

Then in one of our annual days my teacher made me appear as a swimming champ, this gave the next idea to my mom…so here I go to a row of swimming classes….but swimming never comes easily to me…..I ended up only to the extent of walking in water!!....maybe I will swim one day when I am strangled in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, it will come just like that to me..

Then was my brush with music. My mom wanted me to be a carnatic singer (thank god I did not become one!!) but I said ‘’….I cant do all that ‘aa….aa…aaah..’, so she enrolled me in keyboard classes. First was with western music…but that wasn’t my cup of tea…I learnt it from two teachers..the first one couldn’t bear with me and taught me only nursery rhymes….the second teacher lost hope in me that I could never get the ‘c’s and g’s right!! then I went into classical music in keyboard…

This was even funny than western music…..because I learnt this classical music from 4 teachers…people I tell you teachers, and at all 4 places…I started right from the scratch…that is the basics and did till the lesson that I left with my first classical teacher…that is I never proceed beyond 2 stages of the classical music in all 4 places…..when I go to the next teacher, they ask me to play what I mind goes blank, and they tell me that we will start from the first!!...whew….so that is how my keyboard lessons went, which were saturated after a point.
So what can I say my talent as….I never did anything can I say I am very talented at trying my hand at everything but never fully completing it or learning it…now that is definitely a great talent people…I can call myself….an amateur jack or should I say Jill in all trades!!.....

Weirdo land is my country.
All weirdos are my brothers and sisters.
I love my country and I am proud of its weird and crazy people.
I promise to make my country crazy with my crazy and zany ideas and strive to drive all people in it insane.
I vow that I will abide by the crazy and zany laws.
And not in one moment will I try to be normal in my life.
Abnormality will be my last breath.
I pray that people around me turn crazy and weird and hail in the light of zaniness.
I vow that I will be a patriotic citizen of this land and never in my life will enter the sane world.
