Vinod’s Class on …. Opening Post !!

This is the start of a year long rant on various stuff from my perspective. Mind you, there would be serious discussions on everything under the sun…wait….everything including the sun and how we can avoid getting into such situations. If you want to gain extensive knowledge on stuff which “really matters” I would suggest you start subscribing for my blog right now because this is like a lifetime opportunity.

I am surprised you haven’t cursed yourself for spending so much time on my blog and still reading this post. Well see, that’s like your first lesson. Patience is Virtue.  I don’t expect fee for what I teach or appreciation letters (drop in a comment to get my email address in case you need it). Seriously ! you are still reading it. Wow !! Alright Alright, let me start with today’s class.

What Do I do when there is a Petrol/Oil Strike happening in my city ?

That’s a good question. Like today, I saw this long queue of cars near my place, traffic jams everywhere, auto drivers charging more than their normal rate and things like that.  Lets face it class, we are dependent on Petrol. Unless you are like the follower of Gandhi and still walking to work and stuff you are seriously in trouble if this strike continues for another day or two.  So how would one get to work ? or to a party ? or for a movie ? or just for a party or a movie and really not bothered about reaching work ?

Suggestion #1

Walk. I remember writing  a similar post sometime back when the auto drivers went on strike. But that was for a limited audience of people who take the auto everywhere like I do. But this time, god punished the others as well(take that you car owning people !). Now the audience is broader. Anyway getting back to walking, yes walk to wherever you want to go because it’s healthy.

Let’s say you are going to a party, try going to some place near by so that you don’t have to walk more. There is an advantage of walking to a party, you have little chance of getting caught for drinking and driving. You could like carry your drink on your way back home.

Suggestion #2

Go in groups. I have a new name for this Walk pool. Start like a walking community with your flatmates. This is fun, you won’t feel the pain of walking long distance because even if you fall after long hours of walking, someone will be there to carry you .

Suggestion #3

Have more of house parties. Yes, the audience would be less but you can like tune in to your favorites and dance alone. Yes, your morale would come down, other than that you will be fine.

Suggestion #4

If you are married, this is god given time to impress your spouse. Stuff like, “See I am spending more time with you”, “Who would wanna watch the match when you are there?” should help you not do those boring house chores.

Suggestion #5

This is a long shot. It involves using your brain and lot of studying , but I think its a really good alternative. If you are a non science student, go back to your basics. Study science like chemistry and biology and come up with an alternative energy method thingy(or whatever that name is). If you are a science student and consider yourself good with chemistry and stuff. SHAME ON YOU !!

Well. That’s it for today. I hope you learnt something from this session. I would strongly suggest you take a print out of it and keep a personal copy of your own, because I am sure the wordpress guys won’t allow me to be on their server with the way things are going. Till my next class….
