They say, ‘Don’t take life too seriously, nobody got out of it alive!!’ Check out the following observations, which ring true :  Anonymous author, but Kudos for your viewpoint.

  • Life is just a phase you’re going through. You’ll get over it.

To be remembered for all the auntyjies, who nudge you at the weddings whispering ‘Your next.’

  • Mantra of the PR person of a cookie brand, A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand.
  • Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.

The FIFA referees will agree.

  • Experience is a wonderful thing. It enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.

Are the referees reading this?

  • To all the DINK’s who love adventure –  Discover Wildlife! Have Kids!
  • Can you answer this – Who tastes dog food when it says ‘new & improved’ flavor on the label?
  • When your mom says, You better pray that will come out of the carpet – Is she preaching Religion?
  • Is Einstein responsible for the traffic moving faster in the other lane, always?
  • The Electric company’s complain no. 1 – Bills travel through the mail at twice the speed of checks

And remember, Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves for they shall never cease to be amused.

It is the end of June and school has started. Shiny black boots with smartly ironed trousers make a beeline to reach the class. The teacher enters and everyone introduces themselves. And, the last to speak is the new boy.

Shy, apprehensive with eyes longing to be accepted. He stammers out of fright, the class laughs. The knot in his stomach tightens further, till the teacher tells him to take his seat.

The lecture starts and all eyes are on the new boy. His set of finely sharpened pencils, a ruler, a never-before used eraser classify him as a nerd. His hand shoots up to answer the question. The teacher nods her approval.

Alone in this fight of first day – new school, he holds on his own. The bell rings and a few boys take a look out of the classroom. Their friendly noises make him wish for life to take a step back. He yearns to go back to his familiar ways at the old school. He wants to race the corridors to the place, he belonged. But, as if his feet were made of iron – they just wouldn’t move.

The lecturer has not come today and the substitute teacher is a sports lover. So, off they march to the ground. The ritual starts with the coin flip and two teams with their captains are chosen. The new boy is selected – last. The teacher declares a game of basketball and the boys get fidgety.

And, its a Basket!!

You will make it, New Boy!!

In a cricket-crazed nation, basketball is the stuff to be admired only in movies. The new boy loosens his tie and dares to make the first move. Everyone scrambles for the ball, but his bounces can’t be tackled.

Two minutes in the game and he scores the first ‘basket.’ His team goes woo-hoooo. Lots of hi-fives and smiles welcome him. The game goes on as each tries to learn to master the ball. But, the new boy seems to have a way with it. His shots are simply put, superb.

The bell rings and the teacher shuffles his feet and whistles, to go back to class. The famous boys make way for the new boy, hugging him close like old school pals. They talk as if he was there, eons ago.

The new boy is amazed, his words in his throat – he just nods at their chatter. The teacher hands him the ball to be kept back in the games room. He looks at the ball and thanks it in his heart, for being the ice-breaker.

On his way, he meets the class teacher. She smiles and says, “So the shiny boots have finally, found their way in the mud. Welcome to the world of possibilities.”
