Like every average student I cud confidently say
MATHS stood for Mentally Affected Teachers Harrasing Students
The subject was all about the crossing the line – the line between Pass and Fail!
The subject was a natural bore or the teachers made it so
The befitting maloo geniuses always ruled the crucial physics n math classes
While the students rocked their chairs and composed everlasting jokes,
Husband: Ayyo Mary which colour sari ure wearing?
Mary: Ello ..
Husband: ello ello…(disconnects the phone)
Mary to a tall girl in class: U need to imbrove your attitude…
another girl: mam she only improves by altitude
In Geometry I struggled with the ruler n compass
It encompassed my natural fear for the subject
And I welcomed some furious comments by loony teachers like
‘Even a blind person will tell u this is not a quadrilateral…’
Yes it was not quadrilateral it was a triangle.. but I had tried!
Another time..This is not an arc, u fibber! And she scribbled a remark in my notebook
No one before had knighted me as a ‘bluffmaster’..
At home my folks raised their eyebrows in doubt
In the end I did cross the line, With a flying seventy-two,
thanks to a certain looney teacher, who thought I was a fool but not a dumb ass
I said thank you for the consolation and passed!
