When some grown ups start behaving like babies, we without any hesitation can call them â€˜semi-civilizedâ€™. Every grown up university graduation student is expected to behave like an adult and to exhibit characteristics that presents his/her maturity and developed state of mind. But unfortunately, TIP crowd, in addition to their frustrated behavior in the university, is now being observed with a Lollypop in hand. Shame! It seems that either we did not enjoy our lollies during our childhood or perhaps we do not have any decent activity other than this childish engagement.
It all started at Fall semester 2007, when our administration succeeded in arranging a tuck shop in the sports room whereas sports room was shifted to the past apparel labs. Our tuck shop owner in addition of keeping valuable stationary items, start selling little food items like biscuits, chips, chocolates and so on. Now, as an experiment, he initiated offering Candyland lollies at the cost of Rs 5 for two pieces. It was an experiment though but you know what happened? Semi-civilized crowd start buying those lollies and in a very little time, all the stock vanished. Considering the interest, shopkeeper arranged a bunch of lollies and amazingly all of them sold in the wink of an eye. Students from all the years are now often found with a lollypop in hand in cafeteria, class rooms, during labs, in studios, computer lab and sometimes even in the library.
Ahh! I still remember that I left eating lollypops during my primary studies and for me eating a lollypop at this mature age is some thing quite abnormal. I have no problem with anyone for these lollies but unfortunately this lollypop culture gives birth to a word called Lollz! Though every one has the right to buy and eat any number of lollies and I have no right to point towards anyone for this but a bit of advice from me is that it is very immature, irrelevant, abnormal, childish and also a psychological problem. This semi civilized behavior is not only limited to these lollies but we have also noticed extreme hooting on various serious programs and debates; we have observed the rejection from students for such mature activities by calling these events a â€˜Sookhaâ€™.
University life is a time to enjoy and to do as many naughty things as you can, but it is also a time to inherit some civilized characteristics and to act mature enough to be a role model for your juniors as well. Obviously, we always have some visiting faculty, we do have frequent visitors, and we are also planning to invite other universities students in our programs. Therefore, without pointing or criticizing anyone, I request my fellow students to please start acting like grown ups and keep a big heart to accept serious singing performances, debates, dramas, quiz programs and to tolerate guest speakers. Plus, I would like to drift your attention again towards these lollypops-come on! Try to change yourself otherwise I am afraid that I will too start having these lollypops on a daily basis.
An anti Lolly Pop!
