Program Nilam. Anybody remember it from school? It’s part of the curriculum in primary schools (did we have one in secondary school?) designed to encourage students to read as many books as they can and the students with the the highest number of books read in a year gets a prize.
I’m an avid reader. I love to read. Call me a nerd. Call me a kiasu. An outcast. Burn me at the stakes with books. I dont care! I was over the moon when the Nilam programme was implemented. I figured I could try and win that prize. After all, I read very quick. Well, I thought I did.
When it was time to announce the winner, I discovered that my best wasn’t good enough. I didnt win anything. Not even 3rd place but hey, you’ve got to be kidding me.. more than a few hundred books in a year? All of them are books? Properly reviewed and given ratings? Complete with comments that are well-constructed? No cheating? Seriously?
Ok Ok OK.. I accept defeat. ha ha ha.
