Now that the ragging hype’s over what are we bubbly ‘children’ supposed to do sitting miles away from population. Hmmm, ‘eureka’ since there aren’t many people you can actually ‘check out’ over here, what other option do we have than to ‘contemplate’ (Hint hint: ‘Meditate, cerebrate, cogitate, ruminate) over our teachers. (With all due respect to them all)
So what makes the teachers of TIP ‘oh so different’. Names aside where else do teachers make ‘pairs of three’ (for correct pronunciation ask any guy from first year). I’m sure Mr. B.D.Saleem would get a heartache if he found out that a particular teacher of ours was busy undoing all the good Sir B.D’s done for us through Eng101.
Forget not being able to understand why the chicken crossed, if you don’t get why data ‘are’ collected and not ‘is’ collected, don’t bother asking because quote unquote, ‘There is no WHY in English.’
Next in line is, ‘aap batein kar rahein hein!..Â aap class sey bahir nikal jaein!’. ‘Aap so rahein hein, ro rahein hein…. (keep guessing) ‘Aap class sey bahir nikal jaein!!’
And I’d personally not want to include this one since I really don’t want to torture anyone’s taste buds in the midst of Ramadan but, ‘What’s your (Microsoft windows) flavour?’ It doesn’t get freakier than this does it?!
One would love to disagree with the fact that first impressions don’t last, but one doesn’t seem to have much of a choice here. Once you’re a C-grade student, forget endeavouring hard and getting a better grade, forget the fact that it’s never too late to mend. Whether you think you’re going to get a B, or whether everyone knows you should get an A, don’t burden your fastly fading grey cells because you KNOW you’ll get a C.
In conclusion all I’d like to say is, ‘Nike just do it’ and ‘TIP just IS-screw it.’
