some things never change..

Standard

Age: 5. Parent-Teacher meeting.
“Satish is a good kid, his letters and numbers are coming along well. At this rate, he’ll be ahead pretty soon. Initially, he was facing some issues settling down, but he’s coming along well now. All he has to have is to be buckled down.”
[Dad/Mom]”Completely agree. We have seen the change.”

Age: 25. Parent-Advisor meeting.
“Satish is good, his research papers are coming along well. At this rate, he’ll be ahead pretty soon. Initially, he was facing some issues focusing, but he’s gained in intensity and research now. All he has to have is to be buckled down and pushed forward.”
[Dad/Mom]”Completely agree. We are still seeing the change.”

Me: whether age 5 or age 25, I stand in the background, shifting foot to foot, with a smile plastered on my face, and nodding along.

Sigh..

  1. Your Age: 50. Doctor-Prasanna meeting.
    “Satish is good, his brain is recovering very well. At this rate, he’ll be normal pretty soon. Initially, he was facing some issues completing the thesis for his seventh Doctorate Degree, but he’s gained in intensity and research now. All he has to do now is get his ninth Masters Degree and his seventh Higher Secondary Certificate, to go with his 11 Secondary School Certificates, and then he should be normal.”
    [Prasanna]“Wanna bet he tries for more?”

    Get the message?

    Brilliant extrapolation UberT, there are some theories that the advanced life form brain we know who occupies Satish’s human form has actually been planted on the planet to study just about everything – and he will be studying forever!
