A few direct quotes of my Head of Department... pertaining only to me after i became the president of my college's current affairs club... oh man... i don't think i've ever regretted anything more that this!!! And soon u'll know why
On why i am the reason nobody in the class knew what was happening in pondicherry assembly
"Fortunately or unfortunately you are the president of current affairs club... and you do not know current affairs ma... how are you going to rectify this situation?"
On her secular, democratic, socialistic nature
"Anusha Parthasarathy, please stand up. What is your opinion on this issshooeee ma?"
"Ma, the light is glaring. I am not able to see you properly. Please come to the front and explain ma"
On my completely irrelevant answers to all her Koshtins *this is my escape tactic btw*
"Have i not made myself clear ma?"
*Claps hands* "Ok ma, i will explain" *brain switches off*
On her ever annoying class reviews
"Ok ma someone please review whatever i just taught you. Anusha Parthasarathy (zzZZZ *slap* WHAT?!?!?). Yes ma, tell me. Recap whatever i just spoke in class"
On my IRRRRRRRResponsible nature
"You have ashamed me ma. How can you be so irreeesssponsible? I never expected this from you ma. I am very UPPPPPPPPSET with you ma."
HOD: How can you just leave everything and go for shooting ma? Didn't i tell you to give me all the details? How can you be so irrresssponsible (Repeat)? You said you'll give and you went for shooting.
(I spiral into a flash back by 1 hr)
HOD: Anusha... unless you go for shooting everything is cancelled. You have to be responsible enough to handle both ma. You cannot say you won't go. It is your duty as the President of currreent affairs club.
(back to present)
Me: Ma'am, but you said...
HOD: You are very IRRESSSPONSSIBBLEE ma
Me: I cannot be in two places at the same time
HOD: Oh... so, what are you trying to communicate ma?
On her creativity:
"After 35 years of experience in marketing, advertising, journalism, public relations and corporate communication i can tell you ma this poster is not attractive. A poster should attract the eye ma, here i cannot even see anything! You should have white background with black letters in BOLD. And important dates should be in RED. That only will attract ma."
Me: Ma'am, i think we don't need a poster. We'll just take printouts in A4 sheets n send.
On why sponsors names shouldn't come on the certificates
"Ma he is very clever ma. A certificate is something to cherish. Don't you hold is close to your heart when you have won something? It should come from the college ma. Just because he gives you money you cannot become his slaves" "He is exploiting you ma. Even now, only i am standing on your side"
On my President-ship
"As the president shouldn't you be a role model ma? When your club inaugurated, i aksed you to make sure Hindu publishes it since you work there. But they didn't ma. Why? (But ma'am, Hindu has alot of other important things to do than lousy college club activites). I don't want excuses ma. You should have come up wit strategies to make sure they publish the article"
And there it is... My 10 mark detail answer :) with subheadings et all ... *wink*
