Can't Say I'm Totally Ignorant!!!

What got me thinking about this particular topic is the fact that I’m not up to date with the recent trends in the music world, specially the world of English and international music. Hey you can’t call that a crime… I just don’t have the intense interest for it, that’s all.

There was a time when I used to listen to some of the English music and stuff, but as I progressed in my years, I just did not get the time for it and slowly lost interest. But I do have to say that I like most Malayalam melodies, especially some from the 80’s era. It stays on my mind a lot and mostly according to my mood I try and listen to it too as I love these. I guess I like these old melodious songs a lot as I used to sleep listening to these at a very young age.



Now a days when the older and younger generation speaks about certain English, international albums and songs, I just stare at them and try to openly tell that I do not have an idea or nod if do know something. People seeing this think that I must be crazy not to know such things…Hey these things depends and varies according to each individual’s mood and taste.

If you happen to have an interest and love for such things, you will take the effort to know about it. I don’t have that interest, so I do not take the extra effort. Another problem is that now days I just get time to go to work and then get back and relax, browse at home and stuff like that. Many have told me “how can you not know this, that etc”, well like I told earlier; it certainly is not such a great crime people. Do all of you know about everything in this world?



Well I know that we should all know certain basic things, but the rest is up to us and I hate people forcing things onto me. I guess because of this, the rebellious side of me acts up and I just end up being completely ignorant about certain facts. I know there is a bad side to this as I end up not knowing many things because of this.

For example some people create so much of hate in you that it affects your life so much. The best examples in my life are many of my teachers. Due to certain mathematics teachers of mine, I ended up hating math so much that I just couldn’t handle it at all. Due to this I had huge problems for my 10th and also for my pre-degree. For my first year of pre-degree I just totally left out almost 40 marks worth questions in my physics paper coz that whole section contained math problems. That’s the bad side to not knowing many things.

Well now that I am not in school or anything anymore, I guess I do have the liberty to know what I want to and not know about things which I do not have an interest in. After all it’s a free world right??? :)

So true, sometimes whether we like it or not we end up meeting some people whom we hoped we would never meet up in life. But the important thing is life teaches you interesting facts. It is all about how we end up reacting to it.

Eventually we decide what we want to be I think. But said and done I feel bad that those 'certain' few teachers left a bad impact and I can only say time is a healer. Karma would take care of the teachers dont worry :-]

technically it s a free world, coming from France it s a free world, not too sure we can apply to all countries but it s an other story ;)

Of course we don t know everything, and i had lots of 'what!!! u don t know that?' yeah well no I don t, but usually i don t really hang out with these kind of people who thinks they know everything or think what they know is the best!

u definitively have the right to no being interested by all the topics of the world!!!!! ;)

oww I hv heard that many a times from ppl in my life too. but I dun give a damn abt the Society. They r not feeding me, r they? they r not the shoulder that I cry on when Im all alone, are they? I depend on myself and yes I hv standards...they r MY standards, not Society's. I'll never be a Society's slave.

U gotta earn that self-confidence somehow...then nothing/nobody will get to ya Enigma. HUGS!
