Our future...

Do you remember how we were in class 8 (those who did class 8) the way we were to read for excess hours in order to get marks that would take us to “the high school”?
Well, if we thought we read a lot its nothing compared to what today’s kids go through.
I have a kid bro who’s doing the big exam. This is his program
Monday to Friday

7:00am to 5:00pm: school
5:00pm: go home
5:30pm to 10:00pm: homework/tuition

Saturday
7:00am to 2:00pm: School
2:00 to 4:00pm homework

When will he relax? Play? Socialise? Grow?
I’m worried!!
I hope I’m not alone.

The Hunter

The spotter: The initial sighting. The prey is in plenty. It has come in droves and the hunter mingles in the crowd, gauging, measuring, weighing. Slowly the hunter eliminates his prey until finally one candidate is selected.

Prep: The hunter retreats to the corner of the room and gathers his thoughts, a strategy is quickly formulated, taking into account any and all contingencies that may need to be taken up if things don’t go according to plan.

Approach: Once all plans a re ready its time for action. An assessment of the prey’s movements is done. The hunter is patient and is willing to wait this out all night if he has to, waiting, waiting for the right moment to move in. Then, there it is the moment he’s been waiting for. He moves in quickly lest another undetected hunter is in the environs after his prey.

Contact: He quickly makes himself acquainted to his prey through some form of “verbal prowess” common lines are: Hi how do you know the host? That’s a nice (piece of clothing, etc)! Or more tired things like that.

Compe: “Hi sweetie!” just before you say “hey…slow down we just met” you notice a taller/richer/smoother/better looking dude (Her man!) And yet the question in your mind goes, “what’s he got that I don’t have?”

Retreat: Ahh! You desperately look around the room should to find an escape route. You don’t see it but still murmur an “I’ll see you later” while backing up.

Briefing: Mission was a total disaster “I’ll be back!!!”
