She entered the Principal’s office after seeking his permission......”so you are the topper of batch-B?” An innocent nod replied unaware of the journey beginning ahead.

She smiled getting appreciated for the first time in recent years.

“So what is your percentage this year?” “89 sir.” “Hmm do you know the performance of batch-A toppers?” “Yes sir! 96%, 95% and 95% respectively.” She said feeling shy of the difference he had highlighted. “So can you beat the boys?”

(Batch-A was of boys and batch-B of girls) She looked into his eyes and tried to understand the meaning of that sentence since after doing her primary education from a village, 89% were unbelievable for her and beating the boys meant getting “serious” about studies. “I’ll try my best sir” she said with a half-smile.

(During this whole conversation, the Director sat quietly noticing the girl, since his image was quite rude among the students, he didn’t want to make any student feel uncomfortable.)

While closing the door on her way out, she once again peeked inside to make sure that she was elegant and sincere enough while talking. Both the hands of the school were busy doing their work. She couldn’t sleep that night because she not only couldn’t figure out how to react, she didn’t even know how to get serious about studies (as per her interpretations, you can only do it the hard way). Finally she figured it out. (Start studying hard, you have to impress both of them...you have made a promise today). She looked at the mark sheet for the last time (it showed 3 big shining stars and a huge EXCELLENT written with a red glitter pen).she felt proud once again and slept to be a part of one more dream.

From that day onwards, 80% of her night dreams jiggled around the school .This incident was of her 7th standard result day and after that, it became a tradition to go in the office for appreciations after every results. However she could never “beat the boys”. Next 4 years went with the speed of light and she was still a 7th standard student. Innocent, childish, just like a blank paper. Though she got a direction to his dreams and career there, once gain she couldn’t find out what exactly she wanted from her life. She dreamt of becoming an IAS officer, having a huge bungalow, security guards and a respectful life.

“Do you know how is it to dream someone’s dream!!!” asked the mind. “It’s amazing to see the world with someone’s eyes.You never know to where they can actually lead”

When she entered the college all the lime light suddenly whirled away. She needed that pampering and confidence there also. All of a sudden that familiar school campus got replaced by a large college campus (which seemed like a jungle so often because of the instructions given to be beware of snakes and all..seems weird but is was so) and she had to find new friends, new rank in the class, new personality (you have to look charming in colleges), new way of studying (in school, she got marks for her handwriting also), and a new way of looking at life (you need to be mature there). Once again, she had no clue about how to handle it.
