College is fun, good, bad, terrible...everything you can make of it. In such a place, all of us must have come across these 5 types of professors.
College is fun, good, bad, terrible…everything you can make of it. In such a place, all of us must have come across these 5 types of professors.
Three years of college teaches us more about life than a decade and a half of schooling. Unforgettable laughter, unattended lectures, unrequited love sums up college life for most of us. But, this does not mean we will forget our ‘beloved’ professors.
From the ones who did not allow us to enter the class even if we are late by just five minutes to the ones who cancelled our attendance for ‘disturbing’ the class; how can we forget them? Here’s to the ones who also made the classroom memorable in their own way.
The professor who’s speed of dictating notes could give the Rajdhani Express a run for its money.
That one professor who scolds in the most sarcastic and subtle way.
The professor who in order to make things easy ends up making the course complex.
Who can forget the professor whose laugh is funnier than the joke?
The one professor whose real name everyone has forgotten as his nickname is more popularly known…
These are just a few of my favourites! I hope you could at least relate to one of the above…feel free to share yours!

Freelance or full-time, which is a better mode of work for you? Here are the pros and cons, from someone who has been-there-done-that.
For women who are restarting their careers after marriage, motherhood, or any other personal reasons, freelance work is an excellent avenue to consider. I think I’m qualified to make this statement because I’ve been there, done that.
When we had to shift from Chennai to Bangalore because of my personal situation, I was both excited and anxious; excited about the new pastures I was going to explore, and anxious that it should all work out well for us; for me, my husband, and our daughter (5 years old then).
Bangalore welcomed us with open arms and there has been no looking back since. I had just completed a corporate training course a month before moving to Bangalore, and was looking at new opportunities.
Most of us dislike being called aunty because of the problematic meanings attached to it. But isn't it time we accept growing old with grace?
Recently, during one of those deep, thoughtful conversations with my 3 y.o, I ended a sentence with “…like those aunty types.” I quickly clicked my tongue. I changed the topic and did everything in my hands to make her forget those last few words.
I sat down with a cup of coffee and drilled myself about how the phrase ‘aunty-type’ entered my lingo. I have been hearing this word ‘aunty’ a lot these days, because people are addressing me so.
Almost a year ago, I was traveling in a heavily-crowded bus and a college girl asked me “Aunty, can you please hold my bag?” It was the first time and I was first shocked and later offended. Then I thought about why I felt so.
