The 200th post finally And…….That forgotten pledge!!!

And finally the 200th post comes along. 😀 Truthfully speaking never did I think I would write so much when I got started with this blog. And this post, I go with a humor post as requested by Minniedi. And Didi this 200th post is Dedicated to you. Itni himmat jo aapka hokum taal du!!! Hahaha. Jokes apart – I am yet to – not to – listen to your requests.

Some stats – The max hits that the article got in this blog, is the one posted on 5th Dec 2008 on Minniedi’s birthday. The longest comment of the blog is the one posted by Amby giving me a long lecture. Total all time views 38,298 and total comments 1,717 leaving aside the spam/trashed one.

Hope this article can make you all laugh. Also let me thank each and everyone who have motivated me always through out this journey. Thanks for the comments, thanks for the inspiration and thanks for reading through them.

When it comes to my family, one big question many a times I face is regarding my work – What exactly I do! Different people have different ideas on my profession and still it is one of the biggest mysteries in our family.

One gentleman once asked – So what do you do these days. “We develop software”. And what does that mean?? And without even waiting for me to reply “Oh, I got it, you know, the 4th son of my sister-in-law’s daughter-in-law’s uncle is also in the same profession. He does this accounting work for various shopkeepers. You do the same thing na…” With a broad smile – You got it Uncle!!!

But height was when one gentleman on my reply “We Develop Software” asked “Matlab you make them. “Ummm yes sort of”. “Oh great, but beta from where do you get the raw material?” I was left behind tearing my hair……….

But before I got this job, there was a time when I was in school and used to make lot of blunders. This incident happened when, one fine morning, I was given opportunity to deliver the school pledge in front of say around 3500 students.

My name was called and I, well prepared, went to the stage confidently, adjusted the mike (the over-action that I have seen everyone does) and started.

Me: India is my country.
Everyone: India is my country.
Me: All Indians are my brothers and sisters.
Everyone: All Indians are my brothers and sisters.

And then suddenly


I forgot – I forgot EVERYTHING!!!!

Zero all around, I panicked and I panicked to that extreme that, forget the pledge, if someone would have asked who I am, I would have surely asked for the KBC’s lifelines even for that.

Meanwhile, there was a gap of 7-8 seconds of pin drop silence of 3500 plus 1 student inside the school campus. Everyone was staring at me, eyes fixed and I stood there dumb. Fortunately, the choir behind me came to the rescue.

Someone from back: I love my country
Me: I love my country
Everyone: I love my country

And again, in this way, I started, trying hard to regain the lost momentum, however soon I crashed. Her voice was so low that I was not able to interpret what she is saying. So, in order to listen what she is murmuring, I (literally) turned back and just whispered,



This second bold, red colored, 16 font size, highlighted WHATTT (with a sound intensity of 140 decibels) was not from me but from the bunch of LKG/UKG/Class 1 students who constituted the first two rows of the morning assembly and were imitating blindly to everything what I was saying. AND did I mention the chortling laugh of 3500 students that followed by, YES, truly motivating it was!!

All I can say is “Thanks” to the ISO CERTIFIED SANYO Mike that ensured everyone, in every nook and cranny of the campus, to hear that “WHATTTT””.

  8. heheheheheheeee!!! First congratulations!! 200 posts…amazing!

    This was a very funny one 🙂 You are the best when it comes to writing humour!

    You know, you remind me of th dance reharsals we do we these little kids. After teaching them, we still have to mime the actions at times. Recently, one of the steps was to lie down on their tummies and then swing the legs….so at first we laid down and swung our legs. Later we tried to wave at them to lay down…and of course they waved right back without moving any leg muscle. We gave up.


    • Thanks, well this ones for you. Warna I had other plans for the 200th post. You requested humor so went with this one.
