We dont need no education!

As the gods said – “we dont need no education…i am a believer in god…and i dont need no education and that’s why i haven’t learnt one thing since i passed out from B-school 6 years ago…I wonder if i actually learnt there too.

I was am one of those “smart ones”…i didn’t do medicine, CA, engineering (one more year then doing commerce/arts)…coz of the number of years/time involved in studying…i went straight from college to B-school and signed a declaration of ‘The nut does not study no more” at the ripe old age of 22.

and suddenly comes the atheist Celestial Rays who insists that we need to learn more…

So while i tremble that the gods might strike me down…

Disclaimer Real education God…Saraswati maa…pls dont make my already deteriorating brain vanish from this earth…i need it to remember my way back home from this hell called work…which btw happened because of education which happened cause i prayed to u..just saying that’s all

Anyway so while i tremble that i might be upsetting too many gods with my motor mouth..this is what i would like to learn

1. Be a connoisseur of food…i regularly watch masterchef australia, hell’s kitchen and all the food shows and i would love to dole out those beauties. I would also love to be able to taste a cheese and identify it and know the names of all those herbs and generally have the Tall one wondering what he did right to have such a well satisfied tummy

2. I would love to conquer my fear of heights. I love to trek/hike but i am scared to because while i can find my way up the hill…it’s coming down the hill which becomes an issue and i stand on top of a hill until someone offers to ring a helicopter to air lift me.

3. Learn to put on make up – yes comfy i am cheating…isn’t cheating a part of education? no?? But yes it would be nice to know before hand that my eyeliner will follow the shape of my eyes and not resemble the Himalayas with sudden peaks, that my kajal will not make me look like i am regularly beaten up and given a black eye…and yes it would be nice to know what make up involves beyond lipsticks, eyeliner and kajal

4. Be an expert at some kind of sport – i have “played” a lot of sports…but my general laziness and inherent desire not to excel…has ensured i never became an expert…

5. Yoga….i am a new convert …i never believed in yoga and thought people just exaggerated it’s benefits…but i have been doing some amount of yoga in the last six months and i have to say…it feels good. At my abysmal levels of around 45 mins of yoga a week…i have felt a reduction in my sinus attacks, my lower back which used to feel stiff has now stopped declaring its existence.

6. Party organizer…I would love to throw interesting thematic parties and be the bestest hostest in this part of the Suez and that too…u know the ones with the right napkins and food and decor to suit the mood types.

Wow 3 out of the 6 are related to fitness…Yay me,but i guess it point 1 is what will eventually do me in


Thanks CR…this was fun…i might actually decide to let my brain stop gathering moss

And you have not been tagged – do feel free to take it up

    I am totally with you on the fear of heights too – I climb up like a mountain goat and descend like a snail, a terrified one at that 😦
    And make up too – its my goal for next year especially when my little one thinks she wants to be just like Mommy – gulp – I do need to try to look presentable before her Mommy bhakti phase fades away πŸ™‚

    Copy-cat 😯 issok..I will forgive you..since makeup is going on everyones list.. πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

    Your learning curve is all around food and fitness..which seems to go perfectly together..so I bet no Gods can bring you down on them πŸ˜€

    Hahahah..LOved the intro. I was thinking you were writing about something serious, then I read what the atheist has done to you.

    All you ideas seem interesting. Yes time for us to start working on them..:) or may be not..

    thanks for taking it up NuNa πŸ™‚

    PS: party organizing takes the cake πŸ˜€

    You certainly have a very interesting set of wishes! Coming down the hills sounds just like my phobia too! I am terrified of slipping on the odd rock and come careening down. Keep at the yoga workouts. They are a fab method of toning the body and the mind. All the best!

  7. chinkurli

    er…I’m with you on the not-ccoming-down thing. I don’t mind climbing anything – I’ve even gone up Vagator’s non-easy trail with back and leg aches…but coming down? I think I’ll end up like those people they supposedly pushed down Tipu Drop πŸ˜›
