Today morning I was looking at the newspaper and felt something familiar with this date Sept 5th .
And then it struck me "Ahh..Teachers day"- a special wonderful day in schools. One day that every teacher enjoys. The day when the students rush for bouquets or small gifts to please their favorite miss!
Hmm miss those days.
Now I remember an incident that happened in my college hostel. NO connection to the post title though.
My great methodological college had something called as study hour, 8-10pm every day during which you are supposed to study(Yes, no kidding).
During one such hour I was in a room which wasn’t my own. This was my pseudo room or rather my room was my pseudo room (confusing huh??)
Whatever but my roommate was using my cot to dump her things, so now you know which was what.
We were around five of us all buried in deep conversation regarding the internal tests.
That was a joke. So jokes apart, what we were we discussing then..??
May be about this senior, whom we thought looked like actor Madhavan & later realized he looked more like a Gorilla & pitied Maddy. Or about this hot pair that was famous or rather infamous for their open fights. Or was it about the professor who used to stand in an odd posture while writing on the board. Or was it simply about the so-called dinner that we had that night.
But the fact was suddenly we felt like super heroines and lifted a cot that was not empty. Actually it had a poor girl sleeping in there & she woke up with a fright. She was not supposed to sleep in the study hour right ?
After doing a good job I said, "Ok girls I'm off to my room" & turned only to be stopped by a huge lady standing with hands on her hips. It was our very own hostel warden blocking the door & she had a wicked smile on her face. She was our physical training instructer as well, so I used all my wits & managed to tell,
"Ma'am we are practicing for the upcoming weightlifting competition..dont we rock?”
Alas, I really wish I had told that for I don’t remember what I really blurted out then.
