Ek abla naari ki kahani, usi ki zabani.............

So another week draws to a close now...... And what a week it has been......and now i begin to pen down (or rather type down ) the saga that these past few days have been...
I like to begin from the beginning....so...towards the end of the previous week we had a HUGE viva followed by another HUGE viva followed by another HUGE viva....and yours truly studied very very assiduously for each and every one of them. Then came the week end but i was pretty tired and evrything so i did not study...and voila! before i know it the mid sems are sir par! Well one day before the midsems began my friend in college gave me a belated friendship Day gift...a pathetic pathetic viral infection ( we share a lot of things at time including viral infections)!!!!!
So there i was when evryone one was like studying real hard i was down with 102-103 body temperature .Any one who has done or is doing engg knows that Btech mein padhai haapens just a day before midsems so like i had to study...And it was pathetic.
I cant study on the table...my bed is where i sprawl and study.. there i was so totally wanting to just close my eyes and go off to sleep..but naah....that was not to be....
Second day of the midsems was real bad.Okay as you all know i am not Madhuri Dixit neither am i Urmilla Matondkar..as a matter of fact i am not Prerna( of kasauti ...fame) nor am i Parvati bhabhi( of some other fame).See the common thing between these respectable ladies is that even when they wake up in the middle of the night ( obviously coz of some 'darawna' nightmare )their hair is parfectly combed and their lipstick is a shade that can only be achieved if you blend the right amounts of matte with shine...but alas as i said i'm not Madhuri/Urmila/prerna/Parvati bhabhi....... So like when i wake up... i'm more like some girl going for a fancy-dress party as the Wicked Witch of the East. So picture me that way.. so early in the morning that its still dark outside ..pretending to be a human island amidst a sea of books spread all over the bed ,rocking back and forth trying to mug up 10 chapters in Software engg....That was bad coz like i started feeling very very weak....very suddenly actually....and my temperature soared...(myb coz of studying like crazy when i should have legally rested for 34 hours per day).For some time i really felt i would not be able to go for my midsems that day.
You know , sometimes i get this funny feeling that i can make my body listen to my brain...its like i can fool my brain into believing that i am absolutely okay when i am absolutely not....
So there was yours truly, looking like the WWE , on the verge of fainting , muttering furiously to herself: i am okay..i am going to be okay...i am okay..im okay.!!!!
Believe me i can be very very stupid at times!
But my mum and Dad have more sense....they made me gobble up two HUGE chocolate pastries(they were yummmmmm..btw) +one HUGE parantha+one HUGE glass of milk .All this at 5 in the morning!!!
Well i did give all the minors...gave them the best i could....and moreover and imporatanly i do not think that i did any worse than i would have done sans fever....
But yes , i do feel that at times, it might have been nice if i werent so ultra responsible and sincere,
Yes , it does sound very cool to say" arrey yaar...meine toh kutch padha hi nahi" .
But as cool or as nice as it maybe it is not me.
Its not like i'm crazy about marks or anything but then i am not doing anything else at home..so i have no reason why i should not do the one thing that i am doin , properly,(atleast properly by my standards). I am very okay with not getting success , God knows i have dealt with it..but i am not okay with not working hard enough .

Okay the medicines+ exams have affected my brain , infact damaged my brain...and i am writin i dont know what!!!!
The next post shall hopefully be more sane.

thanks..iam much better now.

aastha----yeah..it was a nice piece !!!!

Pradyot said...

On the very outset, I don't think females in India are "abla" anymore. And when talking about studies... it is guys who need all the help!
Just out of curiosity... do you use lipgloss/lipstick (excuse moi bad knowledge) on day-to-day basis when going to college?

Get sane soon. :)

ranjan said...

Since I dunno which city u are from either, so no comments :)..

Are u by any chance inspired in ur pink-o-mania by Reese Witherspoon's "Legally Blonde" :P..juss curious, u know :)

Raam Pyari said...

pradyot-----
hehehe...after 3 days of bad cold and fever any woman (wedr from india or from Mars ) wud be feeling like an 'abla naari' only :P
lipgloss/lipstik..hehehe..naah..!!! i find it a pain to use it even when i am goin out or something!
but yeah when ever i buy lipgloss i buy strawberry flavour coz in any case i end up eating most of it!!!hehehe


ranjan-----hehehe..naah!!! its a passing phase ..infact i am now heading towards green+yellow-phillia.
I proudly state that i have read each and every post that u have put on ur blog!!!! In case you organise a quiz on ur blog..plz inform me!

ranjan said...

Either it is me, or I am missing something here...am sure I don't write that well, dat u would sift through 35 of my posts !!

Anyways thanx, am honored :P

Why dont u put on a shoutbox or come shout in the one on my webpage..saves the trouble of entering this "spam-check" everytime :)

Nikhil said...

darawna nightmare?! and i thought we all had pleasant nightmares!

Shreyansh said...

"Abla nari" ---- and I thought I was going to read about Zahira Sheikh's story on your blog.

And lo , what we have is the "not so abla nari" fighting against viruses and exam questions.

Hope u r fine now and come back stronger and (in ur words) saner .
But u sounded quite sane when u said , u r okay with not getting success but not with not working hard.Great attitude.

latika said...

yohoooooo........
comment no. 16.....way to go lady ! way to go!!!
finally after a long long (fit in a nice word that means 'gap n intezar ' put together)the ultimate procrastinator leaves a comment.....
by the way.... other engg students might study one day before the exam...but 'U'....PaLLLease!
u put medical students to shame !!(hint hint )
neway i don't think i shud put in nething about ur writing skills (my eyes which have been swollen as a result of crying for the past 2 hrs ( because of another bad haircut ) have been assuming a slight shade of green!!!!!) i guess that is explanatory!!
ok then ....
proceeding to the other articles now....

latika said...
