Have you read that “History Repeats Itself” ?????
The 80’s :
Exams are coming. Its time to revise and learn the lessons. The portions are vast – What vast ??? The whole book. And nobody questioned the school authorities on that. Neither did the students struggle with competition. (I think that’s topic for another post, which is getting ready. 😉 )
She is busy reading for her exams, when suddenly she realises its 9pm in the night. And being an Night Owl, she feels that she’s become more alert at this time. She learns her lessons more quickly and never does fatigue attack her at this time.
But her younger sister is already on Cloud 1 dreaming away to glory, at 9pm. Her eyes just can’t remain open after that cut-off time. So, how does she manage to revise ???? She gets up, when Japan wakes up….Oh No, joking…..she’s up as early as 4am and starts studying, which the elder one can’t even think of. 4am is like mid-night for the elder one.
The mother goes mad in-between these two girls, who keep the light ON – one keeps it ON late into the night and the other starts very early in the morning.
Sr is following the Elder one (who is none other than her own mother…..thats me…. 😉 ). She is happily studying and revising through the night.
Sh is following the Younger Sister, by hitting the bed when the clock hits 9’o clock, in the night. Its slumber time for Sh. 🙂
The mother keeps company for Sr, till late night, making her some warm lemon tea, to keep her going.
As per instructions by Sh, the mother wakes her up at morning 5am and keeps her company too….
All is fine…the girls are studying….but does the mother gets a proper sleep ????
History is repeating and the mother is mad at losing sleep….. 😉
