After months of research and time spent in search of a coaching institute which can provide me the guidance to start with my optional subject, here I was at Vajiram and Ravi.
The First Day
I was right on time but to my dismal all the seats were pre occupied and the remaining ones were out of my reach. Thanks to the congested crowd of around 200-250 future IAS aspirants. But after a look at my neighbor, I finally found a seat. It took me around 2 minutes to occupy it after disturbing the neighbors, requesting them to please move their seats a bit so that I can reach my destination.
After a wait of around 10 minutes, Dr. Subhash Mahapatra Sir entered in the class. His mike fitted in his shirt wearing a cap which he specifically mentioned is of ‘Nike’ when the conversation about ‘India is now becoming brand cautious’ was going on. A happy, down to earth, and somewhat humorous are some of his qualities that I observed. He made the environment very warm with his motivational oration, assured all the aspirants that this is best optional they have chose because of uniformity in the marks that sociology is getting from the time it has been introduced. And we must have chosen this optional without any love but he will make us love the subject till the time these four months will come to an end.
Along with all this, his one-liners are just made for his voice. Some of his favorites –
”are bolo toh sahi”,
“kuch samajh m aa raha h ya nahi!!”,
“gaya sab sir k upar se?”
So in all the first day was amazing and lets all the days goes like this. J
