Happy Diwali folks. I know it is too late, and inspite of all the promises during the launch, I have not updated for sometime now. Well, I was on a holiday, and I strongly have a clear work life balance. Phew!
Also have been travelling, across south india of late. Nothing close to the travel that I did during induction into my job, but more or less there. In the last one month I have been to Chennai, Cochin, back to Bangalore and then to Hubli. Then again to Bangalore, to vizag and then back to Bangalore. A recent trip to a sea, and back again to Hubli. Well, I don’t think I should b counting Bangalore to Hubli trip as travelling. It is more like a weekly thing of late.
Cleanliness is next to godliness and no doubt in that. But well, while travelling randomly at places, you do tend to compromise on one thing – BATHING. There are times when you don’t be able to find a proper place to take a shower for the day. There are other days when you just don’t have the required change of clean clothes, so why bath at all. Well, most of the times plain simple you just don’t feel like bathing.
Well, anyone who has been in a B-School campus for two years, and especially if your campus was located in the northern part of the country, has sure gone through days of this ordeal. No bath. It is plain simple damn so cold. And well, “I have come to the B-School to get a fat package, not to take a bath in the well maintained bathrooms“.
A typical morning in a B-School.
7:45AM: Neighbour ( if you are in good terms with him/her) wakes you up for the class at 8. You mentally calculate, and say to yourself,” chuck the bath!”, and sleep again. See the bath is the first thing to be foregone!!!
After chucking the other important ablutions too, you finally wake up at 7:57AM for the class at 8. Pop in a ciggie into the mouth, and jog to the class. The ciggie acts like a mouth freshener early in the morning, and a good recharge too. Well, the tobacco smells better than the early morning mouth odour.
Well, that takes care of oral odour, what about the body odour? Deodarants. AXE in fact even had an event once in campus, distributing free samples to everyone. Rightly targeted audience I would say.
Now, I have been using these smart phones too much of late, and wondered how would it be having an IPhone app to help the same. Well, there is an app even to calculate the tip to be given after a meal in a restaurant. So, “Should you Shower?” app would be very popular am sure. What exactly would it look like?
