In the classroom. A teacher with a little problem with his eyes (squint) and the kids with every sorts of problems with their eyes (to see things that do not exist)
Professor- There are two ways to look at a thing.
Once in a blue moon Student- (lets out a laugh) There certainly is.
Professor- for example it is cold today.
Why am I a student? Student- that is news, I though my teeth were clattering because of the arid classrooms
Professor- I am wearing a vest below my shirt
Why am I a student? Student- So?
Professor- So, you can look at it from two different perspectives
Geeky Student- why would we do that anyway?
Professor- One is the fact that my body from the inside is responding to the cold outside.
Sincere Student- Hmm so what happens on the inside shows on the outside
Professor- now the second way of looking at is what lies below the vest
Geek Student - West? Bay of Bengal
Cool Student- shut up dumbo
Curious Student- what is he upto
Intellectual Student- eeeew.. grose
Ohh I am so cool! Student- like excuse me?
Once in a bluemoon Student- now you are talking
Professor (looks confused at the weird faces but continues)-- so below the vest is the feeling, the heart that makes it do things that it does. Or is the vest an expression of my being. A point I am trying to make
Why am I a student? student- oohhhk.. so what else does your heart make you do?
Sincere Student- deliver senseless lectures with bizarre examples.
Professor- what are you whispering?
Once in a bluemoon Student- sir, just that what are you wearing the vest for, because it is cold or does your heart says that it is time?
Professor- what rubbish is this, you are in MA? Stop making your own questions.
Stupid Students- giggle.
Professor- getting back to my earlier point...
XYZ Student- ....the vest
Professor- (sits up and stares)
Why am I a student? Student- Sir, If looking at the thing makes me feel that the thing is just done to please others or to hide certain parts and not really feels it . Is it possible to feel this way? Is it then the false expression of your being?
Professor- Hmm yes it is quite possible.
Entire class laughs... as the teacher walks out of the class.
Of course the meaning was clear just replace things with 'vest'.
Sir, If looking at a vest makes me feel that the vest is just done/worn to please others or to hide certain parts and not really feels it . Is it possible to feel this way? Is it then the false expression of the being?
What do you think? :)
Moral of the story- All teachers are smart. All students are stupid :)
