Lucky Draw at TIP


I had not walked a significant distance from the campus when almost all my friends came running towards me with a list of students in their hands. It wasn’t just any list like the list of students scoring high GPA or anything, it was a list of the students who had gotten suspended. It really struck me as a surprise because school had just started for me and I really did not want to miss the first days of my seniority. It isn’t like anybody cares or they did back then, everybody came up to me and regarded me as one of the luckiest people who had gotten suspended…suspended for Ragging juniors. Those holidays did not have any effect on my classes or whatso-ever but all I’ve been wanting to know since then is the reliability of their sources for suspending the students that they did. Seems more like they had a lucky draw and the luckiest pupils of TIP were to be given the honours of suspension for a week or so.

I am not posting this article to prove my innocence or whatever but I just want to let everybody know that I did not sit back home because I was guilty of my acts or something but it was only because I respected THEIR decision. Some of my friends whos names were there in the so-called ‘List of Lucky Students’ had not even done anything… and when you have not really interacted properly with any freshmen then how is it that your name is being highlighted amongst more than 400 students in the university to fall into the list of ‘What has already been mentioned above’? Had there been any veracity in the decision that was taken, then I believe 16 was not the right number for that list. I completely fail to understand how it was that they reached that decision. But as they say in urdu “khair hai… sab chalta hai”, I`m going to go on with this as well.

Who am I to question the Big Boss’s decisions when everybody else failed to do that? Oh, and the funniest part of this whole incident was the name of one of my friends was handwritten on a digitally printed list.
