So, recently, I finished my mid-terms and I remembered the joy I used to feel when Lockdown wasn’t there. Hearing the bell that indicates that the last exam is over, was like music to any students’ ears. The feeling of joy, relief and freedom during that time was felt by each student in their own way.
Although I don’t mind online classes that much, I still missed hearing the sound of those joyous screams from mine as well as other classes that came just as soon as the bell rang. And even though some of our invigilators would give us half-hour lectures about the consequences of our screaming, there was nothing that could stop us. Seeing the happiness on our faces, I think the teachers also let us be a bit wildly happy for one day.
I remember, after the last exam was over, the corridors outside our classrooms would be no less than a railway station platform packed with students. And at the canteen, the situation would be even worse. The canteen was flooded with children as if that place was the only one that could provide them food. And for me, at home, it would be heaven. I would watch watch my favorite shows and eat my favorite foods half the day and spend time with my friends in the other half.
All of this sounds like once upon a time….. Ah! Those were the days..
