When people mocked my efforts to give a good G.S. speach :P

Posted: December 13, 2011 by Tushar Singh in Tushar

There have been many few instances for me to experience that what exactly happens in our G.S. class as I remained quite occupied with our house-boardwork in the initial classes.

The incident which I’m writing of is about one of these instances. We were given the topic “Education is what remains after one has forgotten what he learnt at school” to speak upon. This topic was quite vague to hear at first but after sometime it was easy to relate. Since it was my first class of G.S., I knew it by intuition that ma’am would call me to speak upon this topic for sure. Though children were being called according to their roll numbers, I somehow felt that ma’am would jump over to the second last roll number and call me. So I was all prepared to deliver an extempore speech.

Oh btw I forgot to mention that G.S. is our last period on Monday and that day I didn’t have anything to eat in the break due to which I was famished throughout the day. After 2 consecutive periods of maths I was in a state of euphoria and had a famished soul. The situation may sound antithetical but it was certainly like this only.

Well getting back to where I left. I was completely ready to give an extempore speech so it turned me quite inquisitive about what other people were writing. And when it came to speaking upon the topic, no one was able to speak fluently for more than 1 minute. But this didn’t perturb me in the least. I guess euphoria was the reason, but guys euphoria can sometimes lead to overconfidence. And what happened next is an epitome of it. I was called to speak upon this topic, and I stepped up with an incentive to deliver a rousing and flamboyant speech. After speaking for about 1 minute on this topic, I was left with nothing to speak about. Then ma’am asked me to speak upon how can one relate it to LIFE. Nothing clicked me for a few seconds and then suddenly out of nowhere I remembered a dialogue from the movie ‘Rocky Balboa’. There was  a little hindrance at first when I thought of speaking it, but then I turned audacious to make inhibitions stand alone and spoke the dialogue.

I said that “the world aint all sunshine and rainbows, its a very mean and a nasty place and it wont care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. Nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it aint about how hard you can hit. Its about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward how much you can take and keep moving forward.”

Suddenly ma’am stopped me and asked that from where did I copy it 😀 Matlab mu pe katta kar diya maam ne. HAHA! 😀

And out of nowhere Sougata uttered something and I understood that he must be knowing the dialogues which once I made him hear. So before he could speak out, I said that it was copied from Rocky 😀 The whole class bursted out laughing along with ma’am, including the fake laughter by some students just to embarrass me 😛 But I was hardly embarrassed. I enjoyed it too 😀

Then I started continuing from there on and the whole class started laughing again. I had to shout it out that “GUYS! This part isn’t copied” 😛 I dint realize the fact that saying it would result in a much more fierce laugh 😀

After a while, ma’am asked me to continue and I had to reply that “Ma’am! I feel mocked :D”. She started laughing and told me to get back to my seat. On my way back she said “Tushar! Next time please be original :P” HAHAHAHA! That was hilarious. And so was that G.S. class. In the end I forgot that how famished I was throughout the day and it unravelled the frivolous part of me,  ma’am and the the whole class 😀

Rocky

Rocky is a 1976 American sports drama film directed by John G. Avildsen, and written by and starring Sylvester Stallone. It tells the rags to riches American Dream story of Rocky Balboa, an uneducated but kind-hearted debt collector for a loan shark in the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Rocky starts out as a club fighter who then gets a shot at the world heavyweight championship. The film also stars Talia Shire as Adrian, Burt Young as Adrian’s brother Paulie, Burgess Meredith as Rocky’s trainer Mickey Goldmill, and Carl Weathers as the champion, Apollo Creed.

The film, made on a budget of less than $1 million and shot in 28 days, was a sleeper hit; it made over $225 million the highest grossing film of 1976, and won three Oscars, including Best Picture. The film received many positive reviews and turned Stallone into a major star. It spawned five sequels: Rocky II, III, IV, V and Rocky Balboa.

FUN-FACT:

Stallone was inspired to create the film by Rocky Marciano and the famous fight between Muhammad Ali and Chuck Wepner in 1975. Wepner had been TKO’d in the 15th round by Ali, but nobody ever expected him to last as long as he did. Wepner recalls in a January 2000 interview, “Sly (Stallone) called me about two weeks after the Ali fight and told me he was gonna make the movie.”


Its a must watch guys. You’d really like it 🙂

Lost or Found!?

Posted: November 5, 2011 by Tushar Singh in Tushar

I knew a person who played a significant role in my formative years. She was my cousin who used to live along with us when we had a joint family. I felt like a bread crumb by looking at her stature, which used to be gigantic for me when I was in the second standard. When I told her about this feeling of mine, she used to laugh like a retard. It was wierd but still I loved it for some unknown reason.

She used to drop me and my sister to school and also turn up to recieve us, that was the time when we got an oppurtunity to make her perturbed. Both of us hid behind the slides and waited for her to find us. She had some sixth sense by which she always found us in the most undiscoverable spaces we hid in.

One day when she and I were going to school and my sister was not along with us, she discovered that I had a fear of stray dogs. When they barked at me, I held her hand tightly in fear. She told me that barking of the dogs is a way of saying hello, and who so ever does not reply is considered rude. She asked me to bark back. And like an epitome of an idiot, I did that. Somehow I was able to overcome my fearand both of us (my cousin and I) went on the streets barking at every dog we came across. Next day my sister and I barked at a dog and started giggling, she enquired that what was it regarding, we replied that it was an inside joke. We continued doing that until one day on which my grandmother discovered us on our way. barking at the top of our voices at every random dog. On my denial, my cousin told me that we should always respect what our elders say to us and accept it as an obligation as it will benefit us in the future. She had a tone which made me accept anything which my elders failed to.

Years passed, we grew up and grew closer. But one obnoxious day I came to know that she had met with a brutal accident. People who tried to save her were redundant. That news kept on stiffling me for years and still does. That event left an indelible impression on my mind. Her presence was the reason for my childhood vitality. That day I lost a vital part of my life.

She was a person who made inhibitions stand alone. She had a confident approach for everything. She was a bright student and was equally good in sports. She had an eye of a leopard, which once sets its target and runs till it has chased it. These were the reasons I tried to emulate her but always failed.

At one point of time I had a plethora of her company. Antithetically, now I dont get to experience even a fraction of it. But this is what life is all about. Experiences and mistakes are your best teachers. If one takes life with a positive attitude and tries to learn from every obnoxious incedent, he can surely turn into a calm and humane human being. Her presence is what I lost, her sole is what I found.

This is what happens to people when they listen to Daler Mehndi :O :D
