Handbook for Surviving Geography, Maths, History, Physics, Chemistry, English, Tamil, Biology, Accountancy, Economics and all that we dont like in School


Honestly…I wouldn’t have survived school (and most kids in the world too) if weren’t those games invented. Girls definitely top the list of life savers from the marana mokkai lectures in alluvial soil or medulla oblongata. However, these games occasionally take over the menfolk by storm so much so that no one takes a day off even when there is an India vs. Australia Cricket match. literally life saving during the boring lectures of , these games had seasons of their own. Usually a season for a game lasts for about 3 weeks.

The decision to end the season for a particular game and start a new game season is decided by one kid, usually the one that tops everyother stuff excepting academics.

Following is the ranking of the games based on their popularity and their life..

3. Hot Cross Buns

Objective: To put an ‘X’ mark with white chalk in the chair of the kid who stands up to answer a question by the teacher so that when he sits, his butt looks like “hot cross buns”.

Requirements: Stealth and Swiftness

2. Pen Game

Objective: To knockout the opposition’s pens from the table using one’s own pen

Requirements: Heavyweight pen, Accuracy

At one point in time during the late 90’s and early 2000’s  Stic pens were really popular. But they never stood a chance in the war table against the good old fountain pens. My guess is the pen game single handedly brought down the market for Stic pens.

1. Book Cricket

Objective: Score more runs than the opposition using a book with the last digit of the right side page of a book being the score. A page number with the last digit ‘0’ meant the  batsman is out.

Requirements: A heavy book and lots of luck.

Book cricket was the mother of all in-class games. During the peak season, there will be more than 20 teams vying to win the championship while the teacher is busy explaining the big bang theory, integral calculus or the chemical composition of …well whatever. Usually the last few pages of the rough notebook is where all the scores will be recorded. And surprisingly, player with the name Sachin Tendulkar usually tops in book cricket too.
