In the memmory of that “Passing the secret”
When we were in 2nd year of our college, we have got this smart English sir, Mr. SS. SS is damp serious always. He has got an awesome talent to make us sleep with a five minute lecture (I’m not blaming him for that, syllabus was like that). But occasionally he used crack some standard jokes. He used to give lot of games and exercises in the class. My bench mates were my good friend and roomie MG (same smarty of my blood test case) and AT.MG was studied in one of the top school in Cochin and when I first met him, he was studious and literally a ‘broiler hen’ and I was the spoiled one. But by second year coz of his stay with me he becomes half spoiled and I become half decent.
But AT, he studied in a convent school from coimbatore and also he were the nanna munna pyari baby of his parents and sister. He used lead worships, prayer meetings, literally he was an angel. But unfortunately he ended up in our gang. When he joined us in second year, I and MG took oath to make him also spoiled. Initially our main hobby were breaking our head by thinking “evenu engane oru pani kotukam’ (How to fool him in front of everyone, coz of this MG lost his concentration in studies and he lost his class toper position in internals also).
Finally we have got our much awaited moment. Mr. SS were taking ‘Effective Communication class’, and as usual most of us fallen asleep (except MG,he were busy taking notes). Suddenly he asked us to join a game called passing the secret(game was like he will call a person and tells him a secret, and he has to pass the secret to next person and he to his next and it should go on until the last person got the message). And we have to check whether the message is same or not (It has to do something with listening skill and all).So finally the game started the MG passed the secret to me, it was something like “Technical communication is useful not necessary for the capability of team play”, something like that. Before MG passed it, I just turned back and found Mr bengu (most crooked guy of my class) is sitting next to (next bench) Ms.CP (I mistaken that she is a arrogant gal, But later I understood that she is a nice girl).Suddenly mera dimag ki bati jala(My wicked brain worked).I used the opportunity to play prank at both of them properly. Like I changed the sentence to “Technical communication is useful but still I love you” and passed to AT and waited for the fun .Without any doubts, innocent AT passed it and finally it reached bengu.Bengu shamelessly passed it to CP. At first CP got shocked, but she started laughing like anything and she passed the message it next one. Every one started looking each other puzzled; I and MG exchanged the wicked smile
Finally Sir called up the last gal (Ms Sweetie) and asked her what was the message. Without any hesitation she told him “Sir, I love U” (my genius friends manipulated it again). All the class burst into laughing .He become speechless and gave a blazing look at her (I still can’t forget the expression on his face).She cleared him like “this is the message I got”. Suddenly SS came back to action and started asking each and everyone, “what you hear “.My heart started pounding like Sivamony beating drums and I thought I’m finished, started looking for a paper and pen to write apology letter. Suddenly he asked me what you hear and I answered him. Then he asked to AT he told “…….still I love you”. Suddenly he got angry and started scolding and cursing poor AT like anything (I still don’t know what happened and how I become innocent and AT got caught, I guess he meant , what message you passed).He was telling like, it was a nice game ,it was going gud so far, until some cultureless, senseless, idiotic,#$$%%^@#$$ manipulated it. Why he is coming to college etc etc…….all students were laughing at poor AG like anything even though most of them understood I’m the master brain behind all these. Initially I was also laughing (coz of big relief). But suddenly I found tears in his eyes. I felt so bad and that time only I understood how much I hurt him. I and MG tried to talk to him after the class and asked him to take it easy, but he didn’t tell anything. He has to lead the prayer service that (evening).Unfortunately I didn’t have guts to go and confess everything to sir that time. After that incident I never played prank at anyone like this.
AT was a nice guy, he never complained about this thing to me, Even though I continued teasing him occasionally, he never spoke a word against me. By final year we become very close friends (probably my best) and we used stand for each other always.
And about spoiled, I failed miserably because he had the Almighty’s presence in him, that was sufficient to save him from wicked peoples like me and he honestly tried to make me an angel like him (I don’t know how much he succeed in that, But I guess I’m far better now, thanks to his honest attempts)
Okay, well today is my this good friend’s birthday(AT’s) .Dear, I’m honestly apologizing about what happened that day and friends like you are a real treasure. Many many happy returns of the day dear may god shower loadz of blessings in the New Year. Love ya loadz dear
