Dil Kya Chahta Hai??



The school life is something you really cant forget or let go, particularly the last year of school wen you get into the senior most class, masti-ing all the time, along with the pressure of scoring good..


Its been 7 yrs I've left school, but the moments that I really cherish, are kind of embedded on the screen of my mind as such, and every now n then, the play button is pressed..
as just reminded of one of those, so thought of jotting it down...

12th, the haunted course, (Board exams),
We used to have Eligibility tests in mid Augusts. As the name suggests, they were meant for checking the eligibility of the students, for the school can send the forms of the successful students to the board.. though schools send the appearing forms for every student, still for the purpose of making students study harder, they had this formality..

So coming back to the story,
We had our Eligibility test.. And it was Accounts exam the next day.. Also it was the day wen the movie was going to be released..

'Dil Chahta Hai'..

The most awaited movie of the year.. How could we miss the thrill of the "first day first show"..


Hard written practice n clarity of fundae, over confident me,
"yaar accounts ke exam ke liye bhi koi padta hai ek din pehle??"

And I dragged my Buddy Divya (she being the topper and I too not that bad) to the show along with a paltan of other "out of school" friends who dint have any exam,
while other aspirants were burning their calories with "Self Tutor" n "P.C. Tulsian"..

Enjoyed like anything......
Rolling like anything with Amir, Saif n Akshay....

Even after returning from the movie, literally "kasht nahi uthhya maine toh books kholne ka"..
Divya would have burnt her sleep of the night definitely..

The dawn broke..

Just turned the pages once (quick revision), n I were all set for the exam..
Attempted the paper n came out humming as always.. Another reason for humming was the "surroor" of the movie, plus the overwhelmed feeling of the exam going good without proper "last day" preps...

The doomsday arrived.. It was wen the answer sheets were given back to us after assessment..
As our beloved (sarcastic to the highest possible extent) "Teji sir" called my name, I ran to get my paper..
He had his usual shrewd grin on his face n told me "you got 78 on 100, but I gave you 48.. do you mind??"
I replied, in a tone as "not effected" as possible, "nuh-na" n came back to my seat..
(another story of the typical "khundak"- sum other time)

Then Divya's name was called..
She had scored 50..

With a clean record for past 15 yrs of no red lines on the report card, expected was shock on both our faces of failing the exam.. (we had to get 50% to pass the exams in our school)


Instead, imitating the astute smile of "Teji sir's", we looked at each other. I asked "Dil Kya Chahta Hai?"

Divya replied "another do (2) number"...

And we laughed out aloud......
