Here's the thing. •Why are auto-biographies so popular? It's because we get a chance to look into what someone else's life is like and if they're facing problems like us. I re-read 'Wings of Fire' this week.
°'To succeed in life and achieve results, you must understand and master three mighty forces— desire, belief, and expectation'. -A.P.J Abdul Kalam
•I, then only thought of a hypothetical situation where everyone wrote their own auto-biographies, exchanged it and read it to themselves. Don't you think there could be a possibility that we'd reduce the amount of mistakes we make everyday? For example, our parents are our very own 'customized' narrating autobiographies. 'Jab mein tumhare jitna tha..mein roz subhey uthkar 3km school walk karta tha'. •Based on that, I'd like to do a segment of some things I've learnt after 17 years of glooming.
1. Don't irritate your mother in the evening.
2. If you can't initiate a conversation, ask the other person random questions about themselves and the environment.
3. It's not always 'convince mom, she convinces dad'. The other way is more hazardous.
4. Be 15 minutes early to any location you're supposed to be at and save yourself the trouble of being eyed upon when you walk in a class full of people.
5. Check your shoes before wearing them, there's a chance of a scorpion waiting to sting you twice.
6. Learn to blow your nose, otherwise you'll have a perforated ear drum.
7. Don't remove malai from chai if you have long nails.
8. Cation is +ve and anion is -ve. It's the opposite for cathode and anode.
9. Scream if you think it's wrong.
10. It's okay to not cry, it's okay to cry. It's not okay to accumulate.
11. Don't judge any cover or any book. Half of the people I thought I wouldn't get along with, I have.
12. Always praise your mother, always.
13. Braces and extraction of a tooth (not wisdom) do not hurt. It's just pressure, not blood squirting and oozing everywhere.
14. Brinjal on a pizza=Wrong.
15. The average rate of compressions while performing a CPR is 100 comp/min.
16. Deadlines initiate work.
17. Break down complex things, integrate simple things to achieve a complex goal.
18. Don't be an idiot.
