Tamaso Ma Jyotir Gamaya

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh made this classic boast, a favorite of parents everywhere. So here are some boasts to motivate your pathetic, illiterate, unread, uncouth, unkempt, Xboxed Pokemaniac:

The Evergreen boast: We studied under a street-light (variations: We studied under a broken street-light. We studied under a broken street-light with a raging bull and a serial killer on the loose)

The Patently Absurd boast: We studied under a glowworm's ass!

The Tragic boast: We studied in the glow of grandfather's hookah/pipe/cheroot/bidi. He had to smoke an entire crop of tobacco for me to finish my bachelor's degree!

The Patherpanchaliesque boast: We studied in the light produced by the sparks on the rails by a passing steam engine that went through our village only twice a month. Every 3 months. Every leap year. In every alternate millenium.

One excerpt:

Right. I had to get up in the morning at ten o'clock at night, half an hour before I went to bed, (pause for laughter), eat a lump of cold poison, work twenty-nine hours a day down mill, and pay mill owner for permission to come to work, and when we got home, our Dad would kill us, and dance about on our graves singing "Hallelujah."

Bluenibble, thanks...for stopping by to comment.

Suresh, there is *nothing* the Pythons haven't already said better. Still, we must fart in everyone's general direction. Did I say fart? I meant, blog.
