Chapter 2 SANCHITA’S RUINOUS ROSTRUM

  • Sanchita was
  • aghast at how many of her friends failed to answer what life is?
  • Finally when
  • the question came to her, she answered,
  • “It is still
  • an unsolved riddle waiting to be solved”.
  • The entire
  • class looked at her face with wide opening mouth and round eyes.
  • “Everybody,
  • give a clap for Sanchita”.
  • The
  • classroom vibrated with the claps at the command of the gorgeous lady.
  • “Hello
  • students, I am your new teacher and I will be teaching you Psychology. I am
  • Enaya, Enaya Zaman,
  • Psychology
  • comes from GREEK roots.....psyche- meaning soul, spirit or breath and logia-
  • meaning study”. The class continued but the sounds became fainter and fainter
  • and finally inaudible for Sanchita. A strange whizzing sound surrounded both
  • her ears. The strong vibrations of a train far away acted as a magnet and
  • without waiting for a second, Sanchita rushed out of the classroom.
  • All the
  • students stunned at Sanchita’s behaviour couldn’t make out what happened to
  • her. It was their first day, first class of the new session and Miss Enaya was
  • a new comer. For her, this was a normal case. She thought Sanchita bunked the
  • class as students of her age usually do when they don’t like the lectures in
  • the class. The class ended and Miss Enaya hunted for the student who escaped
  • from her class not silently but with a sudden outburst. It didn’t take a long
  • time for her to reach Sanchita. In fact Sanchita was sitting on the last bench
  • of the next class which was lying vacant.
  • Miss Enaya
  • had a deep look at Sanchita, a symbol, nodal point of generation next. A
  • jumper, cargo and converse shoes added to her ruffian looks.
  • “Hello, here
  • you are! Finally I found you. I think, my first class was very boring”.
  • Arranging
  • her top knot in a daring looks, Sanchita looked at the front door of the class. With eyes
  • focused at the stranger, Sanchita spoke out.
  • “Mam, I
  • forgot your name. In fact I was in a different realm when you entered the
  • class”.
  • “It’s Ok; I
  • think you have a free class now. If you don’t mind, can I sit with you in your
  • back bench?”
  • “It will be
  • my pleasure, Mam”, with these words, Sanchita stood up from her lethargic
  • creepy posture and gave a welcoming smile to Enaya.
  • “Mam, you
  • are new in our College, let me tell you something about the fight we had last
  • year”.
  • “Wow! What was the issue and what you felt, you won the fight or you lost it”.
  • “Mam, myself
  • is Sanchita, I will not tell you much about myself, and you will know it
  • yourself. My attitude, my thinking, my dreams made me all alone and I am left
  • with no friends. I don’t care, I don’t fear, I do whatever I like; is my
  • description in a nut shell. As Sanchita was speaking, a tattoo
  • GN
  • pierced on her left arm caught
  • Enaya’s attention. Enaya admitted, this tattoo added glamour to her damn care attitude.
  • “So, Sanchita, anything more, you want to say”.
  • “No Mam”.
  • “You told you had a fight last year, what it was”.
  • “The entire
  • college was sectioned into two. Some of the students demanded no uniforms and
  • some demanded it”.
  • “And I think
  • you were in the opposition and you won. Your dress code says everything. Am I
  • correct?” Spoke Enaya as if she were the greatest detective of her time.
  • “Mam, do you
  • remember, what I told you about myself. Once again I am repeating........
  • Myself is Sanchita, about myself, you will know it yourself. I just want to tell you that this is my 2nd last semester and I was suspended 3 times from the college.
  • The bell rang and the conversation was disturbed in between.
  • “OK, Mam, I
  • have my class, I will have to leave now”.
  • Sanchita left the classroom. The conversation Miss Enaya had with Sanchita, left her dumbstruck.
  • “What a girl! Oh my God, what a girl! I was mesmerized at her tomboy looks and her hypnotic communication was mind blowing. I will have to collect some information about this girl”. With these currents of thoughts, Miss Enaya headed towards the teachers common room.
  • Enaya walked briskly down the corridor to the staffroom and sat quietly on the corner of a desk. Her presence in the room didn’t seem to bother anybody. Some of the teachers gave a fake smile at looking her. Suddenly her eyes fell on different notice boards hanged at different places in the staffroom.

  • A silent voice vibrated in Miss Enaya’s ears..............................................
  • “I am Sanchita, I will not tell you much about myself, and you will know it yourself”.
  • Sanchita’s versatile nature left a lasting impression on Miss Enaya.
  • ********************
  • “It’s true
  • that she is the best student in the college but her introvert nature stands as
  • an obstacle in her career. It’s just because of her dynamic performance she is
  • still in the college. In the last two years, she was suspended three times.
  • Still I say Sanchita is the best student in the college”.
  • As the
  • Principal was speaking, Miss Enaya wondered why and how can a best student be
  • suspended, a bit dilemma.
  • “Thanks for the information, Sir”.
  • “Wait, this is half information you got from me. Since you asked it yourself, let me tell
  • something about Sanchita’s outlandish behaviour”.
  • “Sorry to interrupt in between, but Sir, it will be better if she choose me to share about herself”.
  • “As you wish; best of luck Miss Enaya. It needs lots of guts to cognize a ruffian Tomboy. Moreover if she is a brilliant student and best in everything, except her unconstrained wild short temper.
