Even though it was test, I feel refreshing whenever our our exam or test ends. Its only a week more to be a July, a summer vacation and for us, an excursion. Exciting… isn it?.
Monday seems bright and cool with a fresh wind. Riya, Shruti and I are sitting outside on a bench.
” Riya ” Shruti said.
” Yeah ” . she replied.
Is Ronny good with excursion thing? . Shruti asked.
” Hmm, I don know and I don care . Riya shrugged her shoulder.
Shruti and I looked at each other and laughed.
” don tell me you broke up ”. I tease her.
Not yet, but I think ….I will . she urged with carefree attitude.
” O… you are heartless Shruti said jokingly.
Riya smirked and I laughed.
” what happened to sweet boy huh? ”. I mocked her because when she started dating him then she once told that he is sweet.
enough guys, he is too cheesy and I hate that . Riya conveyed.
” I thought you like cheesy line and cheesy people too I smile wickedly. Shruti laugh out loud.
” lol… to you two too . she said irritatingly and added, enjoy at my cause, one day Ill get chance too .
God, she never date a guy with true feelings. Thats why whenever we make fun of her relationship, it doesn vexed her mind.
School bell rang, 15 minutes of break was over. So we head back into the classroom, but when we are about to enter , we heard someone saying that parents meet will be on thrusday.
God, please save me on thrusday I mutter in my mouth. Biraj suddenly stand in front of the classroom and says.
” Hey guys ! listen up, due to monsoon season we are not allowed to go to sikkim by bus, So we will go by train from here to New jalpaiguri( West Bengal) and then , well take Tempo to Sikkim ”.
” Oi Biraj what if there will be a landslide ”. Pijush asked in a loud voice.
” Then we shall die dude ”. Biraj said sarcastically and went back to his seat.
I turned backside and said to Riya, ” I hope weather stays fine when we go there ”.
I hope too , otherwise well not see most of the places. Riya said ” and I want nice view in my photos ”.
I pulled Shruti shirt who was talking behind, ” oi …oi ”.
” what ? ”. Shruti asked.
”How many people does tempo fit in? ”. I asked her.
” I don know ”. she replied.
maybe 10, 15 or between . I said.
Shruti : ” shall I asked to our Captain? ”. I looked at her for a second. Then I realized, she is definitely teasing me. Riyas face show expressionless.
Shruti knows whatever intentions aunty Neelam has or had. One day, when Shruti visit my home, aunty Neelam came too. She came to call my mother for some kind of meeting regarding their Self-help group. So when she saw me coming out from bathroom, she said, How are you my future daughter-in- law? .
This reached into Shrutis ears who was sitting in my room. When I enter my room I saw her laughing without any sound.
I request her, ”Please don tell anyone ”.
” yeah yeah sure… she said still trying to contain herself .
” Shruti ”. I said.
Again she burst into laugh by holding her stomach and said , Does he knows too ? .
” Ofcoz , her son ? ”. she said
yeah . I tell her .
She clapped her hands and said , wah wah wah! you two will look great together .
As I was trying to comb my hair infront of the mirror , I looked at her in the mirror and said , thats never gonna happen .
After 5 minutes our classes resume back. Last two classes is the debate session. It happens only on the Monday of the last month. So, topics are notified to us a week before and todays topic is , ” Is online gaming distracting and destroying Youths? ”
As usual , debate happens only at the hall which is bigger than regular classroom. Basically it is made for music and dance practices.
When we enter the room, Sir martin was already present. He wait for everyone to arrive.
So , like everytime well have a two teams. Team , in favour of go left and team against the motion go right. okay? . Sir said
Students began to go left and right. Shruti, Riya and I went left. And I observed that , All the boys are on the right side , only few girls are with them.
huh! todays debate gonna be a boys vs girls, I guess. Sir said . ” then lets begin with term ” ladies first ”.
_Team in favour of
Nimrita, team leader stand up and begin,
We agree that, online game is distracting and destroying youths as well as students. Several news flashes on TV saying, One youth did suicide because their parents couldn afford a smartphone. And their parents will reveal that they were addicted to online gaming, who are basically belongs to the middle class and lower class family. They are destroying students, Children, youths and parents too .
I thought ,
ice start my girl. After all shes always been smarter among all the girls. Though Shadna holds the second rank , Nimrita is always been smarter than her.
_Team Against the motion
As expected, Biraj is the team leader.
” I can understand your concerned Ms. Nimrita, but blaming it all on the online game is completely unreasonable and naive. Many online gamers have succeed in life, infact they have earned too. And in case of suicide, it relates with the mental health, I mean we too demand , but we never thought of suicide mission whenever our demands got rejected. So its base on persons mindset not the online gaming ”.
I stood up . Biraj turned and looked at me.
I said : ” okay, why about those multi billionaires who makes money by luring the youth through online game app ?. Literally they are distracting and destroying the Youths. They are tainting the youths mind . Indeed, their physical health are deteriorating too. They spend hours sitting infront of a monitor, a smartphones or a tablets. Instead of using their precious time on some valuable stuffs ”.
Biraj looked stern.
Pijush said, ” For your kind information, Multi- billionaire game developer job is also about marketing.
They will do any advertisement, to boost their economic growth. But that doesn mean they luring the youth. We too, play online games but we knows how to manage our time. Ill give you some relevant example , Many beauty brands do several advertisement , but you choose them according to your satisfaction, right?. So same way, we choose our time, game and sometimes to win a competition too . Your allegations are more like of personal trait rather than social trait ”.
Sir martin is overwhelmed by the heated debate argument . He said , come guys …go on…
Shruti said , But don you think that, all these things which have occurred are problematic. They should banned the online game app. So that.. none of these problem would surface again. Destroying the originator is best option ”.
Pijush asked , ” you mean the companies ? ”. As if he was shocked by Shrutis remarked.
Shruti replied irritatingly , ” I mean the online game app ”.
One guy defend again,
” Yeah ….and then what, unemployment rate will be higher, and do you think, Our country wants that . Many employees work in Game developer company and there is also a sole online gaming company. So If these department or companies got banned then there will be chaos in those peoples economic life.
Plus, there are also youth who have earned through the online gaming and have lived there life comfortably ”.
I hovered back again,
” Unemployment will not gonna sour up suddenly. They can choose other apps like communication, or any other based app rather than online games. And you believe that spoiling youth with online game is not social concerned. Everybody can afford to be conscious enough to decide that whats wrong and whats right . Even later on if they do , its already too late. Parents are struggling to raise their children nowadays economically and socially. In todays technology world, it had become more difficult and these distracting stuffs are even putting more difficulties in their road. Both parents of some youth works too. Everybody do not have their parents 24/7 hours a day ”.
Biraj said suddenly , ” Are you implying that we have that excess. There… ”.
Bell rang , and Biraj looks at me annoying and I just lay eyes on him without any expression.
Sir said , ” alright alright.. students, this is impressive both the arguments were justifiable. I really enjoyed it ”.
When we are about to leave, Sir called me, Lily .
I said , yes sir . and went to him.
you were good today . Sir said. I thanked him.
” I guess , you did prepared on this ”. sir added.
yes sir , I did . I replied nodding my head.
” good, keep it up ”. sir said to me. I nodded.
I did prepared ,he was right. It can be seen on my argument. Unlike previous debate sessions , I am not so curious to prepared as much as this debate session because I felt relatable to our village conditions, many village children and youths are getting addicted to online gaming.
After 5 minutes all the students were gone.
When we are about to depart , Riya said to me , ” Is there something going on between you and Biraj ? ”.
I sighed confusingly, ” what ? ”.
Riya replied back , ” No, I just felt like he is angry with you ”.
” And how do you observed that? ”. I asked
” I mean, in the last argument, he seems angry ”. Riya bluffed.
” he is always like that, we have no personal issue ”. I defend . In my mind I doubt it too.
I am on my bed, a thought , rattling around my mind , ” Is he mad at me for not talking the other day, or he is angry because of my debate remarked ”.
After struggling to find answers , for the whole evening , I remind me, for whatever he is angry I don care . Then I closed my eyes.
