Past imperfect .. Future tense..

The World Cup is on .. And surprisingly I havent put any of my views on it till now.( Compiled a couple for a mag .. But the dumb ***** REJECTED MY ARTICLES !! )

About to embark on a World Cup of my own .. 13 days that promise to turn my life upside down.
In another 12 hours from now Id be making my way towards the SSB interviews in Mysore. SSB = Services Selection Board exams .. For the Air Force Academy.

Yes. .. This aspiring sportsman turned below par Biomed engineer turned banker (he's been a loser throughout all those ' turneds ' ) plans to be a part of the defense forces , as a fighter pilot. ( Stop giggling you ... Warna tere ghar pe hi missile drop kardoonga ).
The pilot aptitude battery test would be followed by the physical tests and the military planning and the group discussions and the personal interviews and the psychometric analysis and the ...... Aagay jo daalna hai daal do , sab kuch honewala hai. Preparations ?? They've been on a war footing .. After 6 months of absolute lethargy and considerable weight gain , I can still manage to run a whopping 15 minutes at a stretch.. (had told u so .. Have always been a sportsman ). My push-ups count has finally reached the hallowed double figures , and I resemble Aamir Khan in 'Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander' while doing those stomach crunches. Bas Pooja Bedi aur Ayesha Jhulka dilado koi !!
So why do you wanna join the Air Force would go the first question ? Still trying to come up with an ingenius answer for that .. If any of my devout readers can think of a 'phekable' answer , then ek ring maar dena.


After I am done showing off my wares at the SSB , the jamboree would move northwards. To the 'Jat' land .. Gurgaon , Haryana. ( I said JAT .. the JAT YAMLA PAGLA wala JAT .. not anything else .. U ghaati PERVERTS ) Haan Bhai .. CAT bhi toh diya tha.. Call aagaya MBA institute se toh meri kya galti hai. Interview , Group Discussion attend toh karni padegi naa ? Afterall everyone wants to have a piece of me. Thanks to all the preparation for the GD-PI session , I finally know what Capital Account Convertability is .. I know that Thrilla In Manila hadn't taken place n Manila , but the neighbouring Quezon city. Inflation is something more than what parents do to the birthday balloons .. Reading the entire budget newspaper takes 7 whole hours .. and at the end you are still left wondering what MAT is ? Minimum Applicable / Appropriate Tax .. Jo bhi ho .. Doesn't spell too well for the IT industries.


" Terese zyada badtameez aur koi nahi ho sakta hai .. Itni baar bolneke baad bhi kapday pack nahi karega ... " But I did try Mummy ... All I could find were the torn socks .. The 'istriwalla' still hasn't got the clothes pressed. And I can't zero in on a tie that would match the shirt I'd be wearing during the interviews.
So what if I'll miss watching Namibia and Scotland and Canada and Bermuda in action due to these impending exams .. I'll atleast be jumping over pits , climbing ropes , passing through tyres , monkey crawling and running 2 miles in 15 minutes.


" Samay Samaapti Ki Aghoshna Hogayi Hai " Dads just yelled after seeing the bags still unpacked. Do get back to the blog to know whether I could match up to those studs from the Sainik schools.


PS : Please let Steve Tikolo and his men reach the Super Eight stages. I love the Kenyan cricket team.

swaaari boss..i couldnt reply earlier.

Your article brought out all your emotions.. very well written and extremely touching.

I hope you pass both the hurdles and are stuck in a good dilemma where you have to choose between the air force and an mba!

Always been the one to venture new paths..takes balls to do that..Keep updating us regular folks..i am sure you are gonna crack both things.
