To make a long pencil short

18th February 2009

The things that we usually miss are the things hidden in the plain sight, things that are very obvious. An example of this is the pencil sharpener. Manu calls it “Pencil chota karne wala” which when translated in English means the tool to make a pencil short. Before he started going to school and started using pencils, the only thing he used to do was take a pencil and a sharpener and make the pencil shorter.

We all have done and believed in stupid things as kids and I have my share of it. When I was about 8 years old, me and my classmates believed that you can make an eraser if you put the pencil shavings in sun. If you wanted to make a scented eraser, you should add some milk to it. Stupid as it may sound, I tried it and was very disappointed when it didn't work. Back then I thought I must have fucked up with the ingredients.

Taking it to another level, may be even now we do or believe in things that make perfect sense to us but will look utterly stupid when we look back at them later.
