Me Thinks

Student

Why haven't I updated my blog in the last 2 weeks? I am a student now. Officially. Started classes and all. Business school would be fun for me, I was told. Soon I'll discover. Being a full-time student is so different from how I had imagined it. Almost all the Indians I've met in class have come here from India. I mean, there is no have-been-here-for-a-few-years types a la myself. Only when I talk to them I realize that I've acquired an accent by virtue of living in this country for so long. Oh no, not because they sound different. Sometimes I think I can sense the expression - "Oh, she has an accent". Or maybe its "Are you displaying your artifical accent to me?" Whatever it is, it'd be sometime before I'd be accepted in that group. And all of them are orkuters and hence know one another. One more reason why I am out of the loop, I don't orkut. More "namma ooru singari business school ponaalaam" experiences would find vent here in the coming days.

ROTFL Bubby. I am not active there. I just have a profile, you see.
Rajesh, ennamo po. Even I dont think I have an accent. But sometimes say 3-0h-9, instead of 3-zero-9 and such things...
Sudhakar, me thinks all the accents are all put-on (at least initially)
Ambi, welcome welcome.

old age schooling,

I went to Hindi class (prathmik or whatever) after college so that I could read the names in Bombay buses...my benchmate called me uncle!

orkut,

I stopped after a giggly girl called me and said "I have scrapped you & yet you have not replied" Its a land of confused, cute, children! :)

Chandru, mikka nandri for the suggestion.
Ajay, you went to business school too. I didn't know that. Tips most welcome Sir. Thank you.
Thanks Laksh, inspiration?! Hopefully this should be a success story.
BTW Oracle, what do you mean by oldage schooling? I am not a month older than 18.
I, enna solla vara?
Blogeswari, thank you nanbiye enadhu uyir nanbiye.....
LKS, unakku na naan konjam yosikkanum. Adhuvum nee ippo irukkara nelamai la, you wont concentrate much.;-)
Thanks Anu. Are we called ROB (rotten off the boat)?
SK, thank you very much. I am definitely not a Peter. At least not yet.
Sudhakar, feel free. Its a free world. Even if you call me names, there is nothing I can do legally I think.;-)
Thanks Inder.
JM, I am sure it would be. Hope I manage.:-)

deepa,

enga enga enga bijinez iskool?

all the best. 2 years before i joined like a blue eyed boy, crossed the kadal. i think u will find it fun and exciting. time will fly fast.

reg accent; be the person who has the switch. switch to desi accent among desis. i guess for boys its easier to do because we switch off from the 'kettai varthai' mode once we get home from college.
