Silly Tales

The ripper!

A week before graduating, my friends and I were sitting in the cafeteria talking about all our sweet and sour memories in school when an idea hit me. “Why not play our most enjoyed childhood game once again?"I asked. Since no one wanted to get drenched in sweat we all decided to play Y.O.U. At first it was only us girls who began playing because the guys thought they were too 'masculine' to get involved in such silly games but soon they too couldn't resist. However, they soon turned the simple and slow game into a “let's see who can jump further” game, leaping monstrously from one part of the field to another. One of the boys wanted to show off his leaping skills so much that he tried to cover almost two meters of the field in one leap! Did he succeed? Oh he succeeded in something alright! In ripping his pants! After a hilarious riot everyone in class thanked our immensely embarrassed friend for giving us all a taste of our sweet childhood again.

The actual 'Godfathers'

It was when the newly elected government had just taken power, our Bangla teacher asked us to elaborate the term 'Raater shob tara thake diner aalor ghobire (the stars at night disappear in the daylight). One of our joker friends, Hasib suddenly raised his hand and stood up. When he was taken to the podium, he explained "When the previous political government was in power, 'Godfathers' ruled everywhere but when caretaker government was at power, they disappeared. Now again,new political government has taken power, the Godfathers started to appear again." After he was done with his explaination, each and everyone in class started laughing and so did our teacher. It was a very rare occasion that we got to see her laugh, a memory that I shall cherish for a long time.

An unsuccessful attempt!

It was my second day at The Aga Khan School when this incident happened. It was our Physical Education (PE) class and we had to wear our sports uniform for the class. One of our classmates forgot about the class and the uniform as well. As it was the first PE class, our teacher forgave the students who didn't wear the sports uniform. Nevertheless, he was teaching how to do some stunts like somersault and cart-wheel, as far as I remember. Our classmate successfully did the somersault but when he went to give the cart-wheel, his pants ripped and it was so loud that every single person started to laugh, including our teacher himself!
