In my class, there were students of all the zodiac signs. And they actually reacted differently to the same thing and same command of the HOD…here’s what our ex- HOD Mr. Sharma typically sounded like:
“Your minor project is complete crap, be ashamed of yourself and no second thoughts on a redo. And I know it’s copied. Hai naa? Are you getting my point???”
These were his fav lines. And that’s how my friends reacted…
- Aries: Really! Sir you are a genius!! BUT its NOT copied ok ( laughs out loud after coming out)
- Taurus: Sir it’s not copied and I spent 5 nights into making this draft, and you’ll have to read it at least once before saying all these words publicly.
- Gemini: What!! No sir it’s not a crap!! How can you say so, have you read it. It might look like one but sir I am...yups I am sure it’s not a crap sir... XYZ told me to do the formatting this way and ABC told me to do the margins this way, which means all of us have written crap... is it?? My god! Then I must tell the class hai na? No no…Lemme read it once again. No sir, have you read it. It’s definitely not copied, just the idea is ‘inspired’… and... and… (HOD faints)
- Cancer: Starts crying. Sir you are partial…
- Leo: What!! You moron, who has given you this post!
- Virgo: (almost crying) Where exactly is the mistake. I have actually worked tirelessly sir. Please consider.
- Libra: hmm… hmm (after much thinking)... Sir u say you mean it’s a crap because the idea is copied or because the content is bad. If the idea is copied then there is no point because there can be n number of researches on the same topic, and if the content is bad then we have taken what was given in the books.And if and if…but what is your point exactly? Is it…(HOD goes nuts)
- Scorpio: Ok, I’ll change it (heh heh! We all knew they’ll never do it!)
- Sagittarius: Hahahaah! So it’s a crap, hain! It’s not, oldie, and what makes you think I’ll change it! Yo baby!!
- Capricorn: Haww!! No sir, its not copied. Kindly spot the mistakes. I do not deserve a thoughtless redo, I know I do not.
- Aquarius: Haha! If you know the answer why asking the question. (Lol!)
- Pisces... They stay quiet and just nod. Come out, sip tea and say “Oye! Nayi movie kaunsi lagi hai??”
