“Yaar meri samajh mein nahin aata, when the hell will our studies end?”
I was there at Hassan’s place, enjoying the tasty pizza his mother had cooked, when he suddenly blurted the above sentence. I simply stared at him, and tried to laugh and swallow the pizza-bite at the same time. As a result, I choked.
“No, seriously. We have been studying for ages now.” He added. I took a sip of the cold drink.
“When we were in school,” he continued, “we had to study because we had to move to the higher class. Fine. That we did. And that we did for 8 years.
“Then came the matriculation exam. And thus started all those warnings: This is going to be the base of your academic career! Ab nahin parrho ge tou kab parrho ge!?” Hassan stopped for a moment. I nodded and took another bite of the pizza.
“After matric, we hadn’t even straightened our backs when everybody in the world started yelling: My God! How can you be so careless when your are in FSc! This is the gateway to your professional education! Parrh liya karo kabhi!”
“All those charms of college life were poof and there we were, going to college in the morning, and then to academy in the evening, since this was yet another base we had to build.” Hassan snorted. I refilled my glass with cold drink.
“And after all those pains and sleepless nights, we finally managed to get into university. Ah, how we had thought of being free and independent, but damn!
“This is your professional education! Ab nahin parrho ge tou sari zindagi sar pakarr kar rotay raho ge!” Hassan made a clumsy face. “I didn’t know I was sent to earth for doing nothing but studying.”
No matter how much I agree with Hassan, here’s this one thing that I know: we still don’t study.
The final project, alhamdulillah, is over. (Thanks a million for all those prayers!) The details of everything which we faced and went through are very boring, so it’s better for me not to discuss them. What’s important is, that we are done with everything academic (except submitting the reports and project CD and blah blah blah), and now waiting for the results. And as before, we’ll need your prayers and wishes, as this is our belief that the prayer factor is the one which helped us to survive. Otherwise, as I just said, we don’t study.
I have missed a lot of Blogistan happenings in the past two months. Blurking around, I can see new bloggers, catchy new templates, impressive posts, and a lot of halla gulla. Which reminds me, that I have been tagged by Saeed and Bhaijan, and if I am not wrong, I might break Bhaijan’s record of responding late to a tag. *rolls his eyes*
Time to resume bloghopping.
