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.
