Fresh off the press.
Yours truly has managed to graduate from the London School of Economics, with an MSc in Local Economic Development, with an overall Merit grade.
Which I think isn’t too bad. At all. No? Yes, yes, I could have done better, and got an overall distinction. But if I start overachieving, where will I get angst from? And if no angst, what is the bloody point of blogging at all? Do you really want me to stop blogging?
But yes, it’s Merit. Given that I once did flunk my exams in school and sat for retests, I think I have improved vastly. (Yes, I am one of those Iyers who never topped the school. Not even from the bottom!)
I think it’s high time I demanded gifts from my readers.
