Ever endured pressure cooker situations?

gmail

A pressure cooker is defined as ‘an airtight utensil for quick cooking of food by using high-temperature steam under pressure’. But there is another definition of pressure cooker. ‘A situation or an environment that is fraught with emotional or social pressures’. Read on to learn about pressure cooker situations each one of us has endured.

1. Commute travails
Every Mumbai resident traveling in local trains experiences this daily – at least two times a day. It’s what makes an average Mumbaikar resilient. Packed coaches, stale air and mercury rising. Tempers are won’t to flare. It is like experiencing the gas chamber. The only difference – deliverance is some distance away. When you alight at your destination, it makes you smile. For you have some time before you have to go through it again. Thank god for small mercies.

2. Shopping stress
On a weekend, you are in a supermarket. It is practically empty – one of those rare days. It is just a dream. Weekends in a supermarket are a test of endurance. Teeming crowds make you feel claustrophobic and standing in the line can test your patience and will power. And if your visit coincides with discount sales, then not even God can save you!

3. Festival troubles
Music gigs guarantee nirvana or at least the musical equivalent of it. Right? Well, think again. If you can endure jostling, mindless people and the general cacophony, then fests are great. On top of it, the revelry leaves you drenched in sweat. Next time you plan to go for a gig, think again. Instead, catch all the live action on the Tata Sky app.

4. Exam anxiety
You are racing against time to cram as much as possible. Too little time and too much ground to cover. If only you hadn’t wasted time watching the new movies on Tata Sky. You beseech gods to intervene. Let the exams be postponed. As if the pressure of studies was not enough, you have to live up to expectations. Parents, peer and relatives – the list is long. Phew! If only life was as easy as channel surfing.
