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!

I agreed.

“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. :)

its been a long while since you posted. Glad to hear you’re done with watever u were doing…even if you dont study ;) Waisay it is very true, everyone’s complaining abt studies yet there arent many who actually do it. I myself feel like I complain SOOO much more than i study. But if we dont complain, where’s the fun? :D

Do keep posting!


Aug 1, 2005 at 7:55 pm

ditto NJ.
as for studies, i cudnt agree anymore wid u & hassan!seriously!20 odd years,& still studying…when am i gonna impart the wisdom/experience of my wise years to the next generation???!!!


Aug 1, 2005 at 7:55 pm

know what, i agree with hassan. i would have agreed with you more but only to enjoy some mom made pizza.
For me, it’s a kind of role reversal. and things aren’t rosy at this end too.


Aug 1, 2005 at 7:57 pm

wow-me,Awk,& chij were commenting simultaneously!


Aug 1, 2005 at 8:38 pm

Glad you are back!
Only yesterday we were wishing for your return! (I along with two other bloggers) … now I wish I had wished for something else! LOL. Just kidding!
Lots of prayers your way!!

U know those 2 bloggers whom VL didnt mention were me n Umem…! i was tellin them i caught u alive in a chat window :D and that was equaly amazing for us :) .

Study means to learn how can anyone stop learning budhu…lol not me my mother uses to advice me. Ab nahi parho gi to kia budhi ho kar parho gi…aur pata nahi kia kia sunnay ko milta tha.

But this is dellima. Indeed

Prayers in ur way.

And By The Way!

Where is That Blurker? Mr Whats in a name?

Is he ur friend i guess? srry i m on mistake.


Aug 2, 2005 at 8:13 am

i meant in last line

srry if i m on mistake


Aug 3, 2005 at 2:13 am

NJ: Thanks :) And you see, I have no problem with short posts. Just that they are considered cheating by some people :P

A: And even a mom made pizza can’t do much to make things better. Sigh.

Chij: Absolutely! No complaining, no fun! And the interesting thing is that the ones who do study, never complain. :D

Saeed: My sympathies are with the next generation! LOL, kidding. But seriously, you ever thought of teaching in a classroom? I have, and would love to teach if given the opportunity.

VL: LOL, yeah, I do it all the time, if any of my wishes come true. Kuch aur hi maang leta! And thanks for the prayers! :)

Aapi: Ji haan! Itna saara pizza aur itni saari coke, all mine! *evil laugh*

Unaiza: Well, actually, me and Hassan only get to meet each other on each other’s birthdays or Eids. (The conversation in this post was on his birthday). And I have heard it many times now what you are saying, but still can’t believe it … maybe because I haven’t really entered the professional world.

Asma: Every student should hate the parrhai kar lo thing!

Gul: Mothers’ advice is always hilarious, I don’t know why. Most of the time I am trying to control my laughter when my Ammi ji is mad at me. And thanks for the prayers :) As for Mr. What’s-in-a-Name, I don’t know where he is … he might show up any day, though.

Dinky Mind: Wha? You think I am not tired of studying? I am sick of studying, little sis. As for aapi, yep she’s the same Fa aapi you’re talking about, and I guess she might have contacted you by now.

Saeed: LOL … oh, ok!

Aapi: Samajh mein nahin aya! *scratching his head*

WiAN: Yeah, really. As far as I know, you haven’t been blurking.
