THE TRUTH BEHIND THE TEACHER'S DAY PROGRAMME IN MY SCHOOL

i am in college now.. and with the teacher's day near the practice and all have started.... this reminded me of my school dayss......




I have spent around 8 years in rose bud school, and the best time of the year for all THE STUDENTZZ used to be the teacher's day...... no actually the preparation of teacher's day.... THE MOST DRAMATIC PERIOD OF THE YEAR... EMOTIONS,FRIENDSHIP,TEARS,DRAMA,DANCE MUSIC,ROMANCE(if u get lucky)FUN,TEAMWORK,CREATIVITY....CAT-FIGHTS.. BREAKING UP, MAKING UP... u name it and it was there......


Actually it was the only activity which the student did without the supervision.. or any knowledge of the teachers,... it was "ASSUMED" to be a surprise god knows if we did surprise them......


Those 5 days had every bit of a a thing which was never ever experienced through-out the year....


The thinking and the planning  already starts from the last year teacher's day...but the actual discussions among the students would happen from the third week of august. there were mostly two kinds of programmes that happened.. each class had to perform..1 DANCE AND 1 SKIT:


FOR DANCE


1.Dance was usually done by the girls... only a few boys were interested in it..but the girls never took those boys...LOL so if they had a majority, they made their own other group, but many were not as lucky(like the guys in my class)


2.the first BATTLE....song selection.. ..a big DEBATE would take place.. but at the end the majority would win.. and the minority...accepted it!!!.... because they knew the song will be changed at a minimum of 3 times.. it was a rule.... any group sticking to one song throughout the programme is pulling of a miracle.


3. now there is supposed to be one SO-CALLED LEADER.. who would teach every one the DANCE... some times the teachers appointed them... otherwise there were also some self- proclaimed appointments ....Here came the politics.. mostly the popular one got to be the LEADER... uhh.. it was a great honour...!!!!


4.there were always be some kids with TWO LEFT FEET but they were  taken.....why???... "UHH..she's my friend and she is v.emotional" and the ones who are not the friends will be shown the door...


5. The competition...... "oh, i saw the A SECTION kids my goodness.. we have to show themm!!!"


6.if you are lucky to have a pink dress with white polkadots then well and good and if not... beg each and every person you know for it of your own size else leave the show(this is where the crying took place)...thus later we tried to end the rigidity of the dress codes...


7. at last the programme hmm.... all performed.. if its all done properly thenn... yeah its a WIN-WIN else.. the one who forgot the steps.. would be seen with daggers on for the entire school year.......!!!!!!!


SKIT...


1.Almost every one is invited to perform....no gender partiality happened there.. BECAUSE ANYONE was hardly interested in skits..


2.it was not very often..(but it happened in my case) clashes of the skit..2 skits but only one will be performed.... n well mine was performed.!!!!... and the skit has to be a comedy.. no serious issues will be tolerated...!!!!


3.the characters ... the director would have to convince the kids to do the part for which they'll fit... after a lot of persuasion and black-mailing....... every one is ready.....!!


4. changes in the skit ....sometimes the skit will only change


5. costumes and props...are to be arranged... the director has to talk to every single child in the class for this and make sure they brings it...


6.besides the competition one has to also be careful....hmm.. that the others are not copying them..


7.the performance happens...... if all laugh.. at your jokes then nice else be ready to be laughed at for the entire school year




amongst all this preparations the people who didn't participate in anything had the best time... just coming to school no studies watching the DRAMA... have a nice laugh and go home....




i don't know how much did the teachers enjoyed the show.... but we did while putting it up for them.......:)


 in college now...  i am hardly interested in participating.. in any activity...because i don't get the same DRAMA which i got in my school... and that was the real fun..!!!

It certainly sounds like fun. Perhaps a good start in life.
