Drugs, Disgust, Thirst

*A short write up i did for an Anti-Drug Campaign*

The intention of two boys entering the same toilet in a sleeper class compartment was definitely not to take a leak. The train had been stopped for over an hour in the middle of a village area. Looking out the train i see a village boy with hardly any clothes on walking towards the public tap. Just then I hear a thud and the two boys were coming out of the toilet, one of them wiping away the traces of cocaine they had just snorted up their noses. Over the high of the cocaine, one of them opened a bottle of cold Aquafina and started pouring it down his own head and throwing away half of the bottle out the train. Out of disgust I slowly get out of the train, and there I see that the village boy is in a sitting position under the public water tap waiting and hoping for water to at least drip down the tap.

Qualifying Bus Drivers

I am going to tell you people a story. A story that happened in an engineering college
in kerala.
*all events and characters used in this story are totally fictitious. Any
resemblance to persons living, dead or better dead than alive is purely
unintentional. For entertainment use only*

Lets call this engineering college "FISh thAT"College of Engineering and Technology.
Unlike all the other engineering colleges in kerala FISh thAT makes sure its bus
drivers are well qualified rather than just a drivers licence and good at abusing
people who overtake them.

A certain department in this college was very different from the rest of the
departments in the college.
The HOD was bald because he used that hair to make a goatee(why should students
have all the fun?).
The teachers are 3 times attepted and failed "are you smarter than a fifth grader?"
contestants.(indian version-Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain?) One such teacher
was a pass out of the same college...thinking why would someone do such a thing?
please dont. There are some questions that even google cannot answer. She was
assigned the group advisor(class teacher) of a certain class. OK...lets leave her alone
for now.

There was another group advisor for the same class who has majority of her classes
during the first hour of the day. On one such day, a group of students came to the
class late(very natural). As usual their bus was late and the teacher had finished with
the attendance. At the end of the hour on this particular day she refused to give
them attendance.
This came to the notice of the HOD(same as described before) and the new rule was
passed on to the class through the teacher(the pass-out).

RULE:In case you be late to class during the first hour and you miss your attendance
because your bus was running late, you shall get the attendance but you will have to
get a letter signed by the driver.

Thats about it guys.
Who knows how many of these drivers even know how to place signs. Then what are
the students supposed to carry with them? Stamp Pads?
