Finally, our results were declared yesterday. I stood first in class! And I am so happy. By standing first, I have got all the things that I had wanted. Firstly, I could make my parents and other close family members happy. Then, I got a CD of Harry Potter-1 from Mammam, an audio-cassette of the hindi film “Fanaa” from Bonu, while Baba’s gift is still pending( which will most probably be a book). Thirdly, by standing first two times in a row (last year, in the annual examination, I stood first), certain people of my school will, hopefully, think of me as a more able student. My toughest competitor, Krishanu, has been standing first in all the examinations, whether terminal, unit or final, since class three. I was second most of the times. But last year, I finally broke his record and stood first. Firstly, people thought that there had been a mistake. How can Krishanu stand second? It has to be the eighth wonder of the world. Slowly, of course, they accepted the fact that Krishanu had stood second. But they still believed that Krishanu, and only Krishanu, had the ability to stand first and no one else. Before that, whenever I had stood second, it had been for the difference of a few marks. These people, whom I do not wish to name, never thought much of me. I did not want them to think either. But I felt very bad when they refused that I had stood first on the basis of pure merit. I, in fact, had an open quarrel with one of them on this subject. So, I had to prove myself this time. And since, I have been successful, let’s hope they’ll acknowledge my abilities also. I personally feel that Krishanu has every ability to stand first. He is one of the best students of our batch. But sometimes, I feel sad when some people don’t think highly of me also.
