Entry: Ah of 10th class!!! Monday, April 26, 2004



Duh!!! What a break I had of 48 hrs(approx). Well, nothing much happened except for the West Bengal JEE. It passed off kinda ok. But the most pathetic part of the tale was that my center was in some Govt sponsered school. Jodhpur Park Boys High School. Well the Jodhpur Park area is itself a pretty good place, but the school was a complete yuck, specially the chairs. Damn those chairs without any backrest. It was a bench minus the back rest and HAD to sit there for 1080 seconds( in minutes and hours it seems to be a pretty small number;)) And as it was a cloudy day so it kinda dark, and they had ONLY 2 tubelights. CPM has crippled the state. Ok ok wont go into politics as I think you are already suffering the election thing.(Atleast I am)

Over the past 2 months  I have been in regular touch with RG, my class 10 buddy. But in 11th our section got split, so we dint keep in touch other than some occasional hi's and hello's. So had a long chat with him about the present, careers, future plans and ofcourse 'guy' talk;) He just said that class 10 was his most memorable year in the whole of 12 yrs spent in Birla High School, and I couldnt help agreeing to him. So if you have time read on , or you can go on blog -hopping(nice hobby !!:P) This post is about my friends in 10th and the various things we did 2 academic years back.

Keeping in mind the traditions, I begin with cursing the teacher. I know its not good, but I am helpless. I GOTTA CURSE this teacher. His name was Mr A.K. Singh. We never bothered to ask his name as we had nicks for him( we had nicks for everyone) We had named him Aks after the fim Aks, but the bestest was Aastin ka saap:P. Like most teachers he used to follow the points mentioned below while taking our Physics classes.

1.Enter the classroom
2.Choose any student from left or right row.
3.Go upto the teachers desk.
4.Start reading.

Thats it!! Chapter done. He dint even bother to ask us that was there any sort of difficulty or whether we couldnt get any particular part of the chapter. Yes he showed his real teaching skills once in a blue moon( where blue moon should be interpreted as Principal on round). Alas we did enjoy his classes.

Now for some reason our class had a nick of CD den. Now we were a group of 8 guys who regularly used to bring CD's to school. We had mp3's, english film cd's and lots of game cd's on any given schoolday. It had become a norm that if our bags were searched then it was bound to get a minimum of 8 cd's. But our bags were searched by our montiors and prefects who were in our gang. So we never got caught, untill some senior students of 12th came searching. We had 7 sections of class 10 and I was in 'E' and we had given specific tips to our friends in other classes specially in 'A' or 'F'( as the seniors used to begin their search from these sections) to inform us immediately whenever there was a 'raid'. Initially for the first time M( who is now my friend and is in my class) came and informed us about the raids, so we were well prepared that day, and had hidden those cd's in appropriate places. But the second we werent lucky as one of the Seniors caught a fella red handed. His name was taken, some warnings were given but then nothing happened. As usual we were again in full bloom, bringing CD's, exchanging CD's and continuing the 'racket'. But luck wasnt with us this time as we 3 of our guys were caught with cd's( I was lucky each and everytime). So we had to think of some robust plan, so that we could protect our CD's and our a** and I came up with a plan which ensured that we were NEVER caught for the rest of the remaining academic year.

My trick was simple. I knew how to cover our copies without using gum or paste(thanks to my dad) and taught it to my friends as well. So the basic idea was to keep the CD in the last page of HARDBOUND copies only. Take the last three pages of the copy and then put up the cover so that the CD couldnt be felt due to the cardboard. Well what do ya say?? Or dint u get the process??

Well I think the post is lengthy now, and I HAVE to mention another incident which took place in the next post.. wont it be too much for all you ppl to bear???
