I look myself in the mirror (very rarely) and invariably say “Why do I look this way? Why shouldn’t people take me for granted if I look this way?” May be it’s not because the way I look but the things I do that things do not fall in place. It could a combination of both too. And the worse part in all of this is that as the time goes by people start saying “Ye toh aisa hee hain” (He’s like that only)... Ha! Believe it or not I visited my junior coll recently and the prof said the same thing when he saw me after a long time the only difference being he said it in marathi. “Haa Assachs hain”. May be one could argue that he meant that I looked the same since he saw me last. But hey he had a perception about me and guess that stays on forever.. Is it too late to change thyself? To change people’s perception? Or Should I join the orkut community “Be Yourself” and give a damn to their perception? I know you would say the latter but it ain’t easy and I will tell you why :P
We celebrated Traditional day in college this Friday and we also had something called as “the matka awards” given away in our class. Well it deals with your fellow classmates nominating and giving away awards in various categories and one gets a matka i.e. a tea cup kinda thingy and hence the name. And so everybody voted and I did manage to win thanxs to majority of the girls who voted for me :P
What did I get?
Ha! Well not that I don't want to be decent but I am sure you get the drift :P
