It was really a bad ugly day in my life. It was recess time in the school and all the boys were jubilantly playing and running near the gate of the school. Suddenly the team of volleyball came from the nearby village; one of the players told us they had lost the match in District tournament. The news spread like a fire and all the boys started shouting and howling. The team along with sports teacher moved on but the boys were chanting nonstop.
When they entered the school suddenly gate closed so we left outside the school. Few minutes later gate reopened and we were asked to come in. I was the youngest in my class so I tried to hide behind the boys but it was vain. when I reached the gate I saw a horrible scene. All the teachers were standing in parallel rows with sticks in their hands. As I stepped in, the gallantry started wiping. My school cap slipped from my head and while picking it I received plenty of hits, so I became standstill and could not move pro and to. Then luckily a teacher kicked me with his long boot and I rushed towards the lawn. Then we ran towards the classroom but a teacher was galloping towards us. While I was checking my bruise teacher caught us and we were asked to assemble in the main lawn.
Principal emerged from his big office with a long cane. All the teachers also came nearby. The principal ordered us to duck on the ground. We sit on the ground like a frog and waited for another session of punishment. Luckily a student from grade 10th stood and refused to do so. All the teachers rushed towards him and forced him to follow the orders. He plainly refused and said he would bring his father and uncles. One teacher sensing the gravity of the situation asked the boy to pick his satchel and go out of the school. He ran away .classes time was now over and we were asked to go to the rooms and wait for the last bell. It was a sigh of relief. It was my first day at school as a 5th class student.
