Abhi to Main Jawaan Hoon

with 34 comments

 
I feel soooooooo old. Its  a bad bad thing when your the eldest among all cousins and the rest are all just about starting college and most are still in school. I feel soooo old when my 7 year old cousin asked me if I was born when ‘Yeh kaali kaali aankhen’ was around and when I replied in the affirmative, he looked so shocked.
 
 
 Another little kiddo is soon going to hostel and he tells me they have washing machines and tea/coffee vending machines in their hostel so he does not need to learn how to wash clothes or make chai/coffee/maggi and then tells me ‘Didi, aajkal hostels are also well-equipped, not pre-hisoric like when you stayed that you had no washing machine.
 
Prehistoric? And I was in hostel in 2001.
 
Another of my friends got asked by her 10 year old brother to help him with his school project and proceeded to instuct her on this wonderful site called ‘Wikipedia’. Simply type in what you want and you get everything. No need to look through 20 books to make a ten page project.
 
 
We still have a few years to go before we see the big ‘Three-Oh’.

  4. Yes. Sigh. I know exactly what you mean. My 12 year old cousin was so impressed to hear I know of Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus. My 18 year old sister could'nt believe her eyes when she found old pictures of me sporting black nailpolish 😦

  10. Haven't quite experienced this YET, but I'm sure pretty soon I will.

    I think its because sometimes my brother acts more matured than me at times..so its pretty difficult to tell who's the older one and who's the younger one! 😛

    You know when my mom told me some stories from her college days, I could hardly beleive it, but now I know how she fel when I tell my younger cousins this same thing. They refuse to belive that I could have ever got on a table top at a pub with my other girl friends and danced on 'Girls just wanna have fun' 😛

  22. @ Ria

    Yeah I know…college life was like a paid vacation I think. We did our amout of work but we also had our fair share of fun.

    But as I recall the college admission was not such a big deal as it is made out today

  23. @ Keshi

    Yup the kids these days all get i served to them on a platter.

    I see that even more now. I passed out of college in 2006. In 3 years, I see a vast difference in the research skills of students today cuz they all open up ten site son the net and look it up while we still prefer to check the books first and then the net.

    As for over-crowding on FB, luckily my younger'uns haven't censored stuff from me yet and neither have we hidden anything from them, so its good when I need to give them some tips on how to handle booze and guys and stuff
