A Materialistic prayer


Some of the weird things I have prayed for…

Oh God,
Please make sure we get the movie tickets today
[I am very passionate about my movies]

Oh God,
Please let her not get more marks than me in kannada
[It was my weakest subject in middle school, and used to always loose top position because of this subject]

Oh God,
Please make me big enough, to fit into normal adult jeans
[I had a tough time moving up to waist 26, where all  pairs of standard jeans began]

Oh God,
Let me wake up one day, and power of my eye vanish
[Used to hate wearing specs as a kid, even now I do]

Oh God,
Let me not get any calls tonight,
[On days I am on call, I may have to wake up middle of night and work]

Oh God,
Please get me the joker, in the next time I pick a card.
[Card games can be fun, and am never less competitive]

Oh God,
Let India win today, don’t want them to loose this one..
[Cricket is an important part of most of us]

Oh God,
Please do make the Microprocessors paper go easy
[The only subject which I thought I would have tough time. Surprise surprise I got highest marks in that]

Oh God.
I want to ask something, but having nothing on mind now, so just surprise me this time
[he he believe me I did this once/twice]

And the list continues…

    The poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan – you can guess whose dad he was – once wrote that God is not his personal clerk to do his bidding. A sentiment I often repeat to my friends who “pray” not very differently from you. You have plenty of company I think. 🙂

    Shefaly..somehow I have never been shy of asking, be it my parents, friends or even god for that matter.
    oh I never meant to convey that I regret asking these..just sometimes makes me amazed what all I have asked for 🙂

  2. “Please let her not get more marks than me in kannada”..:)….we used to do the same thing in high school[kannada is really tough]!…..[nice blog:)]

    oh my mother tongue is kannada, but struggled initially to score 🙂

    one slight correct though ” so u were nerd kinds”.. nope not at all. I am still nerd kinds 🙂

  4. Rambler if you still worry about these things means that you got a pretty good life. Pray for that next time and say thanks
