The reunion of a school or college teaches us how people come with many layers and it sure teaches all of us why we should never judge a book by its cover. As we met our class a little poem came in some of our minds and it goes like this:
The heartthrob of our school,
Who every boy used to envy
Is a man grim and somber looking?
That lanky little girl,
Awkward and a weakling
Is now a weightlifter.
The topper of our class,
With big-rimmed spectacles
Is a happy homemaker.
The Back bencher of the lot,
Who never liked to study
Is an outstanding Entrepreneur
The flamboyant fashionista,
Who strutted with her high heals
Became a dreaded lawyer.
Often ignored average, Joe,
Who was hardly liked by anyone
Turned out to be a well-known writer.
The one who failed in math’s paper,
And could not understand his tables
Is a renowned fashion designer?
And one who often got to stand
Outside the class the whole day,
Is a respected Army Officer?
This is how life turns out for each and every one. We all had a good time and from that day onward, we all stopped judging our fellow-beings. Instead we learnt to enjoy life in all her beauty.
