February

A unique month, isnt it? A short month, flanked by two longer ones.. When I was in India, Feb was a month not-so-bad, bcos it would go away pretty fast before the next salary (scholarship) date arrives.. With the fortnightly check system over here, it is different.. one gets paid exactly for the number of workdays but gets charged similar to a typical 30 days-month for house rent, phone bills and others.

Moreover, it is as if one more month in your life went away pretty fast.. sad! :-( I dont know who that 'intelligent person' was to keep such kind of inequalities in the first 3 months of the year.. it could have easily been 30 days equal for all Jan-March, with Feb. getting 31 days during leap years.. I wish someone starts a worldwide movement to make it happen atleast now on.. Initially, it would be a bit messy to adjust, esp. with the computers and stuff, but hey, it would generate new jobs similar to the ones created for Y2K bug.

pl. let atleast a month to go faster than others.. when you think that this month is getting over sooner than the others, you can see lot of people smiling.. some people may not, like you... anyhow, I'm in the smiling category...

Nag, the job thing is just a corollary to the Feb issue.

Keshi, welcome here!!

Feb saw some coldest days of the season over here; another reason to hate it.. :-)

Karthik, a few years ago, in the cyberspace, there were a few people sympathizing for the alphabets 'W', asking why should it be pronounced as 'double u', and why it should be inferior to others. Their suggestion was it should be pronounced 'wee'.. just a single syllable. :-) I thought mine was not that crazy an idea.. ;)

Raju said...

Vanathi, to beat that, we can sleep less, work more and make it the most productive month of the year.. What say?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Ram, any special reason for the smile?

Y T, I did think about those poor souls before writing the post but somehow forgot to address their issue. Fly over kattanumna sila veedu/kalyana mandapam/kovil ellam idichuthaan aganum.. adhu pola indha vishayathukkum avanga vittu koduthudhaan aaganum.. (Thank god that I am not the dictator of India...) :-)

"With the fortnightly check system over here, it is different.. one gets paid exactly for the number of workdays but gets charged similar to a typical 30 days-month for house rent, phone bills and others." - interesting. never looked @ it that way :)

Raju said...

Priya, vacation in march? enge? ungalukkum spring break unda?
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Balaji, well.. the year is 365 days in 12 months, that is an average of 30.42 days per month. It makes sense to keep most months around the average to minimize the standard deviation, illaiya? One is paying more for Feb means he/she is paying less for the 31-month days.. so naan sonnathai serious-a eduthukkaadheenga.. but I would prefer 7 months of 30 days and 5 months of 31 days.
