Load shedding :)

T’was the summer of nineteen ninety aight
A guy was planning to study all night
But soon he had to put aside his book
He wondered how his mother could cook
With the help of a single candlelight…

Yes friends, it was the season of load-shedding
And the boy found himself heading
To a friend whose father ran a lodge,
So that the darkness he could dodge
And sure enough, that place was lit up like a wedding

Some dark days, he racked his brain
Till he saw the famous Blue Mountain train
A brainwave struck, and so the studious bookworm
Joined a few friends on the well lit Railway Platform
Man, studying for the Board exams was a real pain…

Thankfully, his results were fairly good
Since he had tried as hard as he could
His parents asked him, “wanna go to Bombay?”
“Don’t bother about what people might say
No one can dictate what you shouldn’t or should”…

And thus, the nerd landed up in this big bad city
He wanted no sympathy, no "baccha hai" pity
He had many a point to prove
And had to work hard to find his groove
Some days he did, others days he felt shitty…

He studied a lot, M.Com, ICWA and then an MBA
Landed a job with a nice company and a decent pay
But deep inside, what made him really, really happy
Was the hope that someday, somewhere, a little chappie
Can study whenever he wants, and not just during the day…

From the land of the "load shedding" to a hope of a "Power for all" India...
Project Finance - Energy, here I come!!!

  2. @ zzz:
    weight loss? wot's tht?

  3. in order to give the privilege of power to the underprivileged kids of mettupalayam and other places where the railway stations currently dont have a problem, we hereby remove you from the project and assign someone else to it...

    and in turn we assign u to a project in which we propose to increase the real estate prices by at least 20-30% in places like bangalore where people like me are hoping that someday they would be able to buy a house...
