I dont go to the lectures the sole reason for this is i dont have any motivation to do so. Everybody needs some kinda motivation to do things and the same thing applies on these lectures. I see my front bencher regular and punctual friends and i admire their patience their perseverance . 4 years yes 4 years i tried hard in my first year, no use, second year, same story and then finally in my third year i gave up.
Well i have nailed down few reasons why a person shall go to the class or the motivation behind it .
-> You enjoy the subject and love learnin more abt it:- Yes this can be the most genuine reason to go to the class and i respect it fully, though i dont understand it. Who likes to sit in a lecture room learn abt some chemical plant or heat transfer rather than sleeping in his/her room. If i go to the lectures than also i sleep in the back benches, n when i do a job i do it the best way so i sleep properly in my room rather than on the uncomfortable 4X2 benches of my classroom.
-> U have got a new shirt - Yes this one can be useful for the hot wannabe. The "Yo Man" club . Flaunting ur new shirt in the public or the sheer sense of achievement that u were able to save enuff money to buy a shirt (from ur heavy expenses of petrol, mobile, beer, sutta) when the whole hostel is in cash dearth(since it is the final month)
-> The girls in the class or the prof wears a SKIRT. oh god!! i wud have done straight 5 hour lectures if this was true in my case . None of the girls wear skirt (forget mini or anything) and i dont have any intentions of seeing my OLD PROFs in skirts either so this option is also ruled out. And yes i kick myself for being in iit and not in xaviers.
-> There is a new female admission in the class- This can be a factor in other colleges not at this place. you are stuck with the same batch for four years. So many movies had this story and i always imagined true for me. A new girl will walk in I will play some prank we will fight we will hate each other more than Mayawati and Mulayam singh and then finally she will realize my greatness and the IKRAAR of PYAR. But here also the situation is a myth since no new admissions in the class are there.
-> Class room is Air conditioned - Yes this thing fascinated me in my freshie year now not anymore moreover 72.3% of the times the ACs are not switched on and even if they are it takes a good 15-20 mins to bring the temp down so here also 25% of the time is wasted
-> You've got nuthin to do at home:- This one can be a good enuff reason for many people.But not for me i can watch loads of movies listen to songs or just play cricket in my wing so actually i utilize my time more in the room than in the class room
-> Fear of XX -- This one is the most genuine, authentic and compulsive reason to be in the class room. When u have utilized ur options well in advance n the prof is threatening u with the dreadful XX grade( failed due to lack of attendance) . The moment ur name comes in the probable XX list u are a dif person all together. Stayin awake in the class doesnt seems to be a liability anymore and suddenly u become smart enuff to ask few doubts so tht the prof notices u.
