I complete another batch! This was the third batch that I took for the CS Foundation students. Each time when the syllabus gets over, there is a relief as well as apprehension about how the students will do in the examination. In a way, that's not the matter of my concern directly, for I am neither the owner of the classes nor have I given a guarantee that they will clear the examination if they take coaching from this institution. But there is still an attachment with the students whom you have taught 4 different subjects.
All my students are in the first year of B. Com. It is fascinating to see them attend the lecture, talk about their ambitions, weekend plans, movie and music interests, parents, vacation, exams and various other things. The way they plead not to continue the lecture for longer than two hours as law is pretty boring for them.
And there have been many things that are making news. Suresh Kalmadi got arrested and Shiney Ahuja got bail. Universe knows how to maintain a balance. People are passing comments like - Tihar Jail is the new Parliament thanks to the number of ministers inside the lock up.
Amidst so many things, a few fans are enjoying cricket and football. Some are too busy with work that they don't even have time to talk to friends (read me), while others are so vella that they become an object of envy for unfortunate souls like me.
There are those who are making the phrase "begani shaadi mein abdulla deewana" come true. Thanks to the gimmicks, all of us know that Prince Williams is getting married on the 29th of April. I happened to see a report on the wedding just a while back where they were showing Princess Diana's wedding with Prince Charles. They were comparing Princess Diana and soon to be Princess Kate. Ah! our media!
Sometimes I feel that our life can be so much better without tv or even internet for that matter. We will have more time to be with ourselves. There will not be any excuse of "important meeting" or "ill health" at the time of world cup matches. We won't even know who the Prince is and how does his wedding affect our lives in any manner whatsoever (it doesn't, now too)!
But then, how would I have blogged and cribbed without internet?
We will discuss scams, crib about work, pray for a better tomorrow and life will go on with the hope that time will permit for more of "me" time!
