'Hey, you', the teacher suddenly said in the middle of explaining some topic. The whole class of almost 80 students was under absolute silence for a few seconds. I looked up to see who it was the teacher called.
'Shit!', I muttered with gritted teeth, seeing the finger pointed at me. I got up. Teacher demanded,'What are you writing for so long? Bring the copy to me. I want to see it.' I was very nervous(not afraid though). I presented a thick file to the teacher. He was very furious. I was completing my workshop file in a Chemistry Class.
'What is your roll number?'
'Hmm(checking the attendance register)...Mr Kunal Kishore Malviya, get out my class'
I knew it was futile to make excuses. I accepted my mistake and took the punishment.
This incident, my friends, was the highlight of my 1st semseter engineering class. This incident made me a household name, for everybody who was present in that class. Though, I am not particularly happy at the incident taking place, but in hindsight, I can just laugh at it and be happy at the positive results, it yielded.
A few days later.
In the same class, the teacher was telling each one its attendance count. I knew, mine was well enough to clear the cut off required, I was a bit surprised, when it came out to be that I was leading the class by a margin of one. I just calculated that he had still given me attendance for 'that' day. Reading my face, he just said,' You can not get punished twice for the same offence, isnt it?'
I just admired him.
I learnt from the incident, though, that I will have to be little more careful with my instincts and which are the classes which are most suitable to complete workshop files.
