No Achcham…No fear! Those days in my College

Human and other species generally born with fear (Achcham - in Tamil) as one of the instinct among many characteristic or the behavior. Different fears may comes across in different occasions or situations other than fun filled one or sad one or general one. But, which fear makes you more thrill, suspense, new, no idea for solution and many risk filled in including do or die situation alone? How to rise above fear in such circumstances? How to take risk in life to succeed and how to overcome from fear then claim victory which can be of turning point in your life. Read this article for more detail on No fear or No Achcham in our life.

Advice or suggestion can get easily in this world but how about practical risk taking alone without anyone’s support or an idea which involves life or death to reach some target, success and achievement. Only few people will face fear situation and take risky action to get succeed in their lifetime. There is saying that the one who afraid God will not afraid anyone since death is certain which needless to fear for it but live happily and take some steps boldly ‘for the right one or valid one’.

As one of the dialogue from Gabbar Singh, Jo dargaya so margaya! (Dead who feared for, even though he/she live).

I can give many examples on this topic but it is not an easy to write all in one post. Here I will write only one situation for it which I faced in College days.

There was College election campaign going on within College where some spark happened among two different student / pupil parties where the clashes between them finally about to an end in Principles office. It was unfortunate for the College Principle, well wishers and decent studying student that Principle got head injured due to hitting stone directly on his head which done by one of the student on that group upon Principal compromising between these two parties. That’s it, other surrounded Professors and HoD called the Police department (though their vehicles always used to stand near our college for the sake of college students’ act) and they arrived with little gap as usual. Meanwhile, the clash becomes even more serious before entering by Police group in the premises. I and my friend have to run to the third floor of the college class to hide on this situation where there were thousands of college students who runs on the same time as human tide upon Police entry.

Indian Police control the situation as usual with lathi charge and tear gas for a while. Pin drop silent in the college premises, hard to see bird flying over there. I was thinking of some serious situation since it was my first year study in college where I saw the live situation as such than movie. The area was like a desert for couple of hours. I suddenly thought of my College exam’s fee and its last day. I had to take Demand Draft for it or else I would be disqualified for the upcoming exam, oh God. I discussed with my college class mates and they shouted on me, they said, why you made delay on this since anything at anytime could happen in our college or even sometime in our country like strike, death and so on. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

My heart says go and get it done or else you will be in trouble and my mind says be careful. Only one thing I can do is to face do or die situation on that moment, I have to exit from the college and get the DD then enter the college till College Admin for submitting the DD with ID copy. How, possible for lathi charge to me or tear gas or even possible for sever action from Police that can be of shooting order on the move too. I have to and I have to – my heart says. I remembered God then slowly walked away from friends and passing through open ground and exit way of the college. Many (including Police) were seeing me like a deer walking alone in 200 meters path that is about face any situation right now. Eyes on me, eyes on me and eyes on me by all, including God. Thank God, nothing happened and exits safely and reached the Bank which is very near to my college.

I got a DD within half an hour and enquired the college situation by Bank authorities then I explained them accordingly. Ok, now the situation is again to enter the college with same dangerous atmosphere. Again remembering God and moving slowly from the entry Gate of the College (where Police enquired about me) and explained them softly about last day and DD (shown) to submit. They agreed to enter and slowly moving toward Admin with thrilled situation again, many again looking on me and this time got little confidence since Police conversation taken place just. Yeah, reached 100 meters path so far, still panicked in this pin drop silent atmosphere. Anything could happen.

A group of Police were moving to a different direction of the College which panicked me for a while then still moved on till Admin which came closely. Yeah, I made it, I made it and I reached the Admin and submitted the DD and ID copy to the concern authority. In reply, authority looking on me with angry as I am the only guy who gave him works on this situation. For a safety reason, I stayed few hours nearby College Admin area only till the situation come little calm, yes, they announced “indefinite college strike” which is really bad for the one whom studying well or who doesn’t involve in unnecessary act etc.

However, I won the day – did my work, no fear and no tear. No Achcham, Achchai meeri Uchchai Thodu...yeah.

Remembering those days in college

Those days like a dream to reach the College due to various reasons, one of them is study, though the main aim will be studying further once we passed out either in 10th class or 12th class to reach college. But, we have again different reasons to reach the college beside study, it is just like an entertainment, new place after a long gap from same school study, show the world that you become youth by entering college and possible to get revenue in future from business or work once college study over in very near future, dreaming world and so on.

However, we need to think on this topic about two different views, one is college perspective and the other one is student perspective. I have stated here both. Some state’s education pattern says that the College entry is once we passed out 10th class to reach the Junior College like Pre-University Course (PUC – 10+2) and some state’s education pattern says that the College entry would be once we passed out 12th class to reach the College for Bachelor’s Degree by choosing related subject.

However, as per recalling, I would like to state something about the college days when I passed out in 12th standard with first class marks / percentage (fortunately) to enter the Bachelor’s degree. In general, student has to face lot of new challenges beside dream, dream and dream upon entering the college. This includes day dream, night dream and the future dream in unknown atmosphere. Other than this, student will be on teenage with glamour, realizing reality or truth compare to childhood or early days where everyone or everything was good, old school mates separated, future or scope thoughts, new atmosphere, new faces as college mates, lack of understanding, solo on ground, ragging by seniors, disappointment on course selection, disappointment on instructor or professor or even Principal sometime, hatred on class projects, possible for new and useless love, roaming with friends, tour and travel, student election campaign, delay for class, nothing to worry on exam despite not studied, love with arrears, love to pass the time including in cafeteria and so on. We just happy to pass 3 to 4 years in the college whether we achieved our main aim or not but we were ready to achieve rest of the things.

I was afraid to enter the college due to ragging than any others; I tried to avoid going to college for first few days after Admission. Later, I had been to college regularly though I got struck with minor ragging which I could lose nothing but Rs 20 and some question from senior to answer where HoD (Head of the Department) entered upon. He, hee, heeee. My college was famous in two things, one is ragging, and the other one is the college surrounded with reputed girls’ colleges and girls’ secondary and higher secondary schools which helped our collegians as an entertainment, fun and even sometime love source for few (I will tell you later about me). Now, you have to identify my college or its name where I would have studied or passed the time – he hee heee. You have to understand that study is different in such atmosphere, so, if you are solo and interested in study then doesn't matter, you can study and pass out – it is just like it is in your own hand to pass or fail to get Degree, as usual. At the same time, we used to see the release of the movie related to college during entering or joining the college, as same as, for e.g. Jo Jeetha Wohi Sikander movie and eager to watch it despite getting from black ticket.

During college days, we sometime used to think that we are broadminded or well matured compare to our parents or elders or seniors around, sometime we used to even think that we are master in teaching than the college instructor or principal though not studied as we supposed to be. Sometime it became true in few cases but not for all.

Now education, our country education system is little different and late updates on eco-system or international educational eco-system. How? When I was in abroad a decade ago, I heard about B.Sc Accounts subject (remember - BSc Accounts) degree in their colleges from well known countries, I surprised on Degree title and realized that this will not come to India unless we spend few decades and education pattern changes here slowly by Ministry level which they will know it first before me. Also, our citizen will laugh and surprise when we talk early about BSc Accounts. Why BSc Accounts? It is not related to Bachelor of Science? Finally, after a decade it came to India following western education pattern by Indian Govt, which our current student follows too for various other degrees and education level.
