one of the most argued question. do be or not to be…???? honest that is… i am usually the one for honesty .. except when its me in trouble 😀 My friends know know this and kidd me enough.
ok now this is what happened:
we’ve been having these rumours going around of an inevitable Cell raid after somewhat 10 days ago a circular was read aloud in class stating the obvious: “Raids will be conducted by a special squad of staff ” along with another one dictating that one is to stick to the mandatory dress code. ‘no t-shirts please’ and a host of other things… wish the college would provide the cash for expanding our wardrobe if they are so much worried about morality and other shit.
The notice made most of us wary. and after 2 drills in class participated by me and Ananth only. i decided its too much to give my heart an adrenaline push so often. i did have the option of keeping the cell in my friends PG, but why bother?? laziness rules!! yay! for this week for example i just got it on tuesday since the main reason we need a cell is to locate people. its too tough keeping tabs on where people are or are going.
Today morning i had an intution or something ( claims it rubbed off ) to not take the cell to college, even though i had to pass on a parcel to my neighbour. and Ta Dah! there was a raid at 10 in the morning. The HOD gave a very inspiring speech about honesty and the 3 levels of punishment. so inspiring that the other section “honestly” gave up around 16 cells. next was our turn. i was chill. didnt have anything to worry about. people who did , managed. “Honesty” had 2.5 victims. one was sure to get it back soon by ‘influence’-very indian na? and other was Aks ‘s iPod ( college slang for mp3 player, not to be mistaken for only the Apple variety) . so Technically only one cell was seized.. to be apparently given back after april 14th. Many literally “walked out” with their cells unnoticed. Thus they didnt get anything much from our class. From what i observed, the check was very minimal. i personally opened my bag and just showed them what i wanted them to see. i didnt expect senior lecturers to bend down and check my shoes.
this spoiled many people’s days ( is that grammatically correct???)
My Questions :
- Do you think Cells are required ?? especially when our college is around 62 kms away from home sweet home.
- Why are Lecturers allowed to get them then???
- This experience showed that Honesty doesnt pay… so what should we do ???
Last of all : Kudos to the Guy* who walked out with a cell in each leg.
