One Sure Way


…to ruin a breezy sun-kissed spring morning is to open the local section of your morning paper, and come upon a report about a man who killed his two daughters, hacked their bodies into small pieces, and went on to stew them. This is when suspicious neighbours set the police on him, thus preventing him from proceeding with what I assume was his dinner.
Sheeesh! I can’t believe I pay to read this stuff!

On a happier note, after spending the first half of my birthday in a nervous fever, I finally got my result (ICSI final), and boy did I kick SOME BUTT!!! At last I am a Company Secretary.
Such glad tidings, however, have completely miffed my boss, the Monster, who seems to have been waiting to gloat at my failure, and to affirm his conviction that of course girls have less brains than his pet dog. Having been robbed of this opportunity, he wears a face as black and as sour as jamun, and tells anyone who would listen- “The exams were really much tougher in my time, only the very best got through. These days anybody can make it through CS. Anybody.”
Yeah, well, you can’t have everything…

Well done you!

Quaint Murmur said...

Congratulations!!

Definitely a case of sour grapes there. Never mind him.

And this followers thing is a bit dodgy- in the sense that I can't seem to make out what to do. Am I a follower on your list? I can't figure it out :S

Sorry about the tangential subject on the comment form.

Congratulations by the way!!!

Shubhajit said...

Belated happy birthday, & congrats!!! Well, since my knowledge about ICSI is limited to its expansion, so I hope you wouldn't mind my asking a dumb question - how would qualifying the exam benefit you?

By the way, I was just wondering, are you a staunch feminist? I hope you didn't take offence to the question... :)

A Brilliant post Amrita..me too added a new post..a story ..just let me know you like it or not..how are you?

Jennifer said...

Congratulations! I had a partner in a law firm who thought women shouldn't be allowed to practice law (he was OLD) and, really, all you can do with such people is succeed, succeed, succeed. Like you just did. :)

On a writing note, this phrase is exquisite: "he wears a face as black and as sour as jamun..."

Pradiptaa said...

I also don't know why men really get this kind of feelings when a woman gets a successful day! Anyways, on a belated birthday wish, I wish you kick his butt this time! ( Well, he deserves it! )

And for the child stew, people are going crazy these days! And hence I've stopped reading newpapers ... I ask my mom, if something's worth reading, she hopefully scans these news... & hands me a bunch... No wonder I missed this awfull news!

And won't congratulate you till now, for getting a job under that git, when you kick his butt, let me know, I'd cordially congratulate you!
