Green grass,blue skies,yellow benches and red hearts. As I pass through Cubbon Park,I can’t help but notice a certain sense of love and melancholic vibe to this place. For me this place resonates a sense of achievement.
I remember coming here one fine day because there was a soirée of some sorts at home and I had the dreaded ” Constitution” paper the next day. I came silently with the hubs and sat down under that ” Poinciana tree”.. I felt quite miserable at missing out the fun but then remembered the Caustic and acrid taunts which people had generously bestowed upon me.
” Aaah!! She’s a newly married bride,do you think she’s gonna take the exam seriously??”
” I can bet my life on it,that she can’t do it. She won’t even pass a semester,let alone the whole course.”
“Have you seen her??? She’s a beauty freak,if she can get some spare time from staring at the mirror,maybe she’ll attend a class or two.”
“Does she think Law is a joke?? It needs like a lot of time and concentration. It’s not the same as opening a lippy and swiping it on.”
“Bwahahahahahaha.. Let’s see!!”
I really couldn’t prove all of them right,could I?? I had too much at stake. It seems like a day so far off in my memory,but really it was just 3 years ago.
Today when I walk into the same room as them, they don’t praise my hardwork or the uphill battle I fought. They are too stuck up to do something like that.
What they do is keep shut. That disbelief,that disparage,that obnoxious know it all attitude has met its match. They can try to not acknowledge my feat,but they certainly can’t ignore it. For me,their silence is the biggest achievement.
The most stupendous dose of adrenaline to ever course through my body was when I held my “Law Degree Certificate” in my grip.. I just broke down into tears,I remembered the pain I went thru,the nights I kept awake,the projects,the assignments,the painful thoughts of giving up..
To the ones who had no hopes in me and mocked at me.. Today’s Quote is for you.. Hope you guys love it xoxoxoxo 😈😈😈
And today… I don’t have any nominations.
Today’s post was a very personal one. It was so much like a burden off my heart. I really wanna thank ” SHWETA” for nominating me and in that process,letting me spill the beans.
I loved doing this challenge.. Super yes I did.. ❤️❤️❤️
