Finally!! I’m now a Rank holder!!


Way back in school, I remember how ‘holding a Rank’ was SUCH a big deal!! In the convent that I attended for my primary, there were teachers who looked only at the rank holders in class and treated the rest of us like furniture.

But the rebel that I am, I never really cared. I always believed that holding a rank was synonymous to being a snobbish book-worm who had no practical skills and barely enjoyed the finer things in life and didn’t have the guts to run risks. In a nut shell, I HATED ranks and rank holders.

Retrospectively, I think I hated all the rank and marks funda for the simple reason that I hated the thing that we were being graded on; how much we could mug up and puke out onto our exam papers. If, back then I was given a rank, say, for trekking or singing or any of the many things I liked doing, I’d have put my life and soul into getting the highest rank.

But Fate is a leveler, you see. So I was destined to get ranked for something that I love doing. My all time love has been writing (and in effect, blogging) and so, when  IndiBlogger gave me an  IndiRank of 75/100, for the first time in my life, I was proud of being a Rank holder.

I love my blog and I love it when I know that people like what I put up. So the more the comments and ‘likes’ and ratings, the more I feel like posting stuff. So essentially, major credit for this ranking goes to all those people who read my blog and comment. A Big Thank You to all of you for helping me to the Only worthwhile rank of my life!

  1. Hey! Congrats lady! That’s quite an achievement! 🙂

    Keep them coming!

    I’m also against the ranking system that is followed in our education system where more important is given to bookish knowledge than the real world knowledge. Lets hope someday the education system changes. It would also reduce the suicide cases and stress students go through….

    • I know…. I wish to help out in the field of correcting our education system. Actually, I want to help out in correcting a lot of flaws… hopefully will manage at least a few before my time is gone… 🙂
