Early morning hours just before the class begins
It’s Monday morning and the class is scheduled from 10 30 am onwards. 2 boys fast asleep in room no 521. The alarm rings at 7 am with the best of its capabilities trying to pierce down through the ear drums of the 2 future managers who have slept just a couple of hours back(anytime between 3 to 5 am). An automatic mechanism makes the taller one react in a particular way such that the hands fall right on the alarm button and switching it off (not even snooze). The moving body then gets back to sleep without ever realizing what happened. Exactly after 2hrs 25 min the other one jumps out of bed and looks at the watch wondering why didn’t the alarm ring !!!
SR: (looking horrified at the watch) oh shit!!! Dude wake up…. Its time….
RDA: (disturbed) why so early man… what time is it???
SR: 10:26 am
RDA: when do we have our class and who's lecture is it now…
SR&RDA: (simultaneously) Oh f**k…… not again…….
They think for a moment and both of them rush to lie their hands on whatever is fit enough to wear and run to the academic building praying that the gate doesn’t close. And as usual they often succeed in their endeavor without fail.
Well inspite of all this they are never the last ones to enter…a few more always beat them in this regard… m sure names are not important “quote unquote” to add to it one can always find a couple of troubled hearts desperately trying to prove themselves as SIMSRites when the gatekeeper stops them at 10 29 am for not carring that stupid hanging I card.
While the 2 poor souls disturbed from their sleep were running for their life there were people from all regions of India sitting in the mess table gobbling the mess food seriously discussing who had the maximum no of head shots last night. Without any doubt the CS domain is a kind of oligopoly with a few leading market players who can turn the events anytime in their favor. (Apologies for the eco effect)
While the professor desperately attempts to start the class people keep pouring in at continuous intervals. Few of them have a bread loaf in their hands instead of a register and a few reluctantly sit in the first bench when they find all the back (coveted) seats already occupied.
And then finally at around 10 50 the class finally takes off to meet yet another set of events…..
To be continued…
