Getting up late and then rushing yourself into a uniform is simply not a great idea to start your day as an Amcolian. You can miss out very insignificant but really important details of your prestigious uniform. You pick up your navy blue shade bag and rush into your car as you are already running late. You swarm through the jam packed roads to the college while getting a major headache till you reach its main gate. You enter the college just seconds to spare while thanking that you are not the one who the Staff stopped for getting late……
But you hear an admonishing voice ….. “Sahaaab”. You keep running pretending that it’s not you who the Staff’s is calling out for…. You reach the class and by pass your teacher and sit at the nearest possible vacant space…. Panting and telling others how you got stuck in a jam…. And then the lecturer says Shhh and goes on narrating the so actions, uses and side effects of so and so drugs you will never be prescribing to any patient as it has gone obsolete nowadays due to its severe toxic affects….You trying to match up with the pace of the lecturer and keep writing down every word which is immensely important to be learnt by heart in the end…..
So the time ticks off and your 2 hours goes away and your stomach decides to rumble, reminding you that you missed your breakfast today……. Oh I have an ABC lecture, let me just rush to the cafeteria and get a bite to oppress the hunger pangs…. While running to eat something, the Staff finds you from nowhere and claims that you are carrying a wrong bag which is not at all Black…. You try to convince him that is gives the shade of Black….. Even your black shoes have an extra buckle on it ……He doesn’t agree to any less than your roll number …. You are so tired of arguing that you say NC – Xyz….. Staff cross checks the number with your ID card and asks you to go to your lecture hall right now….
You buy yourself a sandwich and your cell phone beeps “Come quick; very strict teacher here and taking attendance before starting”.
You again run a marathon of 5m back to lecture hall to get it all locked up. The 1st thought flashing in your mind to hide somewhere before your Term Commander sees you… You go in library and pray that the time passes fast. Finally your day comes to a tiring end…..
Next Day outside the lecture hall, list of fines is pasted….
NC- Xyz….. Fine 100rs for the bag, 100 rs for wrong shoes, 200 rs for bunking Abc lecture…..
Lesson learnt: You attend all lectures nothing happens…. But one sunny day you miss a lecture, the same day the lecturer decides to complain for absentees….
What a price to pay for trivial things you never cared for before …..
