Side effects of being ME of IndiaStudyChannel.comThis is to be taken with a pinch of salt, penned only for the next honourable ME, rendered with dead-pan humour, with no offence to anyone, least of all to the current ME or members.
If you are brave enough to become the Managing Editor of ISC,
Beware of the side effects which come with all that lies in its inherent beauty!
You've got to face tons of flak without hitting back,
Have the knack to deal with it with lot of finesse & tact.
You'll be labelled partial by one and all,
No matter that you scold, reprimand, admonish in the forum or via email calls;
No matter that you try to be humble and are caring equally of all;
No matter that you are tenacious, won't give up to try maintaining peace between age-old rivals;
You're going to have to be prepared for some really serious knocks & survive to mentor new arrivals.
You're likely going to become hot & bothered, frail & thin
So to prevent these and other side-effects,
Here's some very sane advice:
Apply good 'ol Navratan hair oil to cool your head;
And drink cups of soothing Tulsi-ginger tea to calm your frayed nerves;
Take a daily dose of Vitamins from fruits & healthy foods
- These will help you to energy build and conserve.
It's not a bad idea also to start attending coaching classes to train
To become a boxing referee and learn the art of fencing, too, to continue in your rein.
The side effects will not then have any effects adverse,
You'll be able to stand tall in your role which is oh, so very complex & diverse.
Pay heed to this sane advice, future ME,
And you'll be safe from side effects of types all & enjoy your responsibilities with sparkling zeal!
