RESULTS...

I believe...
Exams are devised not to evaluate but to eliminate !!

One of the worst things about engineering is that we have 2 major exams in a year...S effectively we are all the time either..
preparing for exams..
giving exams..
or waiting for the results...
and awaiting results is a trying time for everyone...without exception....
Ok...so in my college...the results are put up in lists on this one particular wall..so it has obviously been dubbed the "Result Wall"....
and every time any old results and notices are cleared...
the uncertainty..the sos' and the prayers start pouring out!!
>Is it our result being put up??
>I hope i've cleared xyz paper/s!!!
>God please help!!
there is this knot that ties itself up in everyone's stomach....and the usual symptoms of fear..
some start shuddering with tremors as though they are reaching hyperpyrexia....
some behave as tho rigor mortis has miraculously set in while they are still alive...
some remain cool most of it..but 5 mis prior jump like cats on a hot tin roof..

So while waiting for my results...(which haven't yet come..it was a false alarm..)
I scribbled a few lines to relieve the tension...which a few found quite funny so here goes....


Tension palpable in the air,
Someones fallen off their chair;

Someones biting off their nails,
Somewhere emenate scared wails;

Watch the scene, look one and all,
Results are being put up on the 'WALL';

Shitting bricks, goosebumps prick,
Oops! Someones off being sick;

Lets check quick,PASS or FAIL,
Before we suffer a heart fail.

Shitting Bricks?? LOL!!! guess the asthetic value of your poem just went down a couple of notches. But i totally envy you, for me writing a poem is a long and laborious journey.

hey, u remind me of college now. well, i was a miserable student. so lousy, i wudn't even bother to check my results. it just didn't matter - looking back, i'm quite chocked myself. it was so bad, my friends used to take the trouble of telling me if i was through or not - for thats all that mattered - pass hua ki nahin, bus :)

one thing though, u'r making sound engineering a lot more stressful/serious/difficult than it was for me.

vitruvian said...

@dharma: engineering...well its a matter of perception...isint it??
some ppl take it really really seriously...and another thisng is v get used to it...so it doesnt seem like much...

dharmabum said...

agreed. in fact, we ought to take education seriously - engineering or not. somwhow i was driven to do otherwise. or i'm just one of those ppl blaming the system.

thank you :)
