In the library...
There is only an hour left for the exam to start and I still got two chapters to study. Suma is going to top the class once again. What happens to my resolution of topping the class this semester? I am a loser after all. A loser who doesn't study until her ass is on fire. How can I ever beat Suma if I haven't even studied enough to pass the exam.
Mom was right. She should have got me married instead of letting me study. I don't deserve this chance, the chance that would make me independent, the chance that would make my dreams come true.
I wonder how it would have been if I had opted for medicine. I'm sure I would google about the cases and the treatments whenever a patient came to me. That is what I do whenever I'm working on any project. Everyone does it, its not only me. Even Suma does. She just starts studying from the beginning of the semester and that is how she scores more than me. That doesn't make me any less intelligent than her. I'm just lazy. So lazy and ignorant that instead of studying I'm thinking all these silly things that wouldn't help me pass the exam.
Good I didn't take medicine, my mind wanders so much that I wouldn't be able to concentrate on the patients. I better study now. I can bisect anyone and everyone once I'm done with the exam. I'm sure I wouldn't sit there for three hours. I got to say, exams suck. Why do they have to keep exams? I would have learnt more if there were no exams. I'm sure I would have.
Forget about topping the class, I'm not even going to pass this semester if I don't study now. God! Don't let me fail. If I fail then its your mistake. I'm lazy and ignorant because you made me so. Alright! I know you will say that you gave me an hour to make up for one entire semester and I still sat blaming you instead of studying.
"Hey Gita, I'm gonna flunk if you don't help me".
She asked, "What do you want? Don't tell me that you haven't studied again? You had promised last semester that you would study beforehand."
I begged, "Please, Gita! Help me!"
She said, "Alright. Study the 6th chapter. Its very easy".
"I'm not getting it. I didn't attend the class when sir thought that chapter".
She shouted, "Well! Then go to hell and let me study".
"Alright, I will try studying".
She said, "You will be doing me a favor if you do".
In the exam hall...
Everyone looks so confident. I guess even I shouldn't worry too much. After all, I did study the 6th chapter. That should be more than enough to pass the exam.
These invigilators should have been anchors of some reality shows. They don't do anything in hurry. They eat up good ten minutes of the valuable three hours we get. Poor us! Of course, except me.
Wow! The paper is quite easy. I guess I wasted my time reading the 6th chapter. Well! Now I should more than pass.
Ah! I'm done and others are still writing. I wonder what they write. Even if I had attempted for 100 marks, I would have finished it by now and here, these people are writing and still writing.
Even Gita is writing, but if I sit here for another minute, my bums will start aching. I don't know how do they stick their bums at one place for so long. Three hours is just too much.
I know if I walk out now, everyone will pity me. They will suppose I haven't written anything. They would be really wasting their time if they sit here bothering about me.
After three hours...
"How was your paper?" asked Gita.
I just smiled, so she said, "I recognize that smile".
I told her, "Call it luck".
She complained. "Your papers always goes well no matter how much you study".
I again said, "I told you, call it luck"
She argued, "Nope. Its not luck. Its because I study for hours and just study, but you understand whatever you read".
"Well! I would still say, call it my luck".
