Yes I am elated.Its like when kids compete on Orkut as to who has more scraps.Or friends.Or testimonials.Did I mention applications on facebook?They are up on orkut too now.So much for artificial applause!!Everyone likes a story.Heres one.
Brother was here for his admissions.Still is. Managed to scrape up an almost 85percent.Fantabulously Brilliant by my standards.Applied for an English Bachelor's in almost all colleges(except Rev. Stephens!!).Poor kid almost had a heart attack when he heard there are almost over 23000 applicants for the course in Hindu and KMC!!
"Tried" auditioning for theatre at certain colleges, but missed em cuz the dates happened to be displayed on a "later" day randomly on the college notice board.Missed checking them out because he dint trip to North Campus on a "particular" day.The first cut-off list comes out on the 26th, exactly days after admissions in Kolkata, Pune and Mumbai are done with. Oh and btw, classes for the new session seem to have already begun in a few cities as well!!
This kid has a good percentage.Has a State Player Cert for U-17 Cricket(considering Nationals...no luck there!!)an international cert in Dramatics and is almost melting away with worries everyday about his admissions.Oh and did I mention getting tricked by Delhi Autos twice in a week??
You might consider this post as ventings of a troubled elder brother. Look closer. Its actually whats become of education.
"We dont need no education..."
Well said Floyd.
Its not sympathy I seek.Its reason.
