Minors are over and India has won
I have been quite lazy in writing blog posts, but that is what this blog is all about : laziness. I have just finished my minors and all I wish to write is a review of the minors and little else, for minors seem to be the most important issue in an IITians life. On a side note, I am quite happy that India have beaten Australia and are now very much in the fray for the Cup. The news with devastated Ponting’s images have flooded my fb wall ever since. The newspapers too yell that out. The nation, it seems, is enjoying.
In the meanwhile, buried in a small corner of the newspaper, I read a report on a 5year old raped, news of Montek Singh telling Vidarbha to wait (how long? how many more lives?). I don’t care. I have my minors to worry about and the Wednesday Indo-Pak encounter to watch. I also see a report on how a farmer threw his daughter in the drains. I am too busy to comment, to feel sad, to lament the ethics of this nation.
Minors! Oh I forgot talking about them. This Friday, as I returned to my hostel room, after one of them, I saw a girl emptying one of the dustbins in campus littering the material all around. Such a nuisance! ah! Well she was looking for some plastic stuff perhaps. I should perhaps ask the guards to keep such kids out. It would be great citizenship. What if I had taught her once. What if we had been friends! What if one other of her age and neighborhood had lost an eye on Monday just because she wasn’t cared for when a needle(which she used for making bouquets (which we so lovingly gift to our loved ones)) accidentally pierced her eye! Why do I care?
I am still happy that the minors are over! The match… an interesting one is coming up… And yes, I have free evening after all. I can sleep for long hours and then stroll down for a coffee at Lipton. Or I can go for an outing with friends. That would be great too. I haven’t had such fun for long time. I totally deviated from the path, right! I wished to write a minor review.
I can see the nation burning, but I am too helpless to help or too busy to think or too lazy to act until the fire reaches my home. Laziness- a good excuse. Will I be strong enough to mitigate the fire when it reaches me? I am not sure and I am not ashamed of what is happening, I am proud- I had OK minors, I have a good CGPA and have got a pretty decent intern. I do not feel the pain… or is there no pain at all? I am confused.
Do you feel the pain or you too like many others like me are happy with the cricket team and the minors? I feel like shouting out loud… alas that doesn’t suit my personality.. another bound that the world has put on me……

Hi! I am a student IIT Delhi. I have been trying to study Computer Science and Engineering here for the last two years. I am a lazy guy, and have been blogging infrequently.
