This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 39; the thirty-ninth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. The theme for the month is "Break"
As the teacher enters the class, we all become silent, not out of fear but out of expectation of another time for entertainment.
“Let us discuss the word BREAK today,” she announces.
We know the game. We have to use the word in as many ways as possible.
“I want to break the silence”, Rashmi says cleverly and everybody laughs.
“Our car break is not working, so the silence is already broken” Aditya adds.
“So, did you break traffic rules?” Mohit asks.
“No, the traffic police had a break then,” Sudha adds with smile.
“Turn the break ...” someone says and we are puzzled, is this term right? Can we turn the break?
“My elder brother joined another company. He has a good break, he says,” Sumit adds.
“Is he the one who is good in code-break?” asks Hema.
“Oh! He is the record breaker of our school, remember?” Maya added.
“Hmm, how clever you all are! I have to break my head to use the word,” Deepankar says and again everybody laughs.
“Better break a glass than a break down,” Nandita. Her mother is psychiatrist
After few minutes the fun is over. Everyone is thinking hard to find uses of the word ‘break’
“Give us a break,” I say loudly and laughter breaks around.
This teacher has taken a break from tradition, but how effectively can she break the age long habit of other teachers?
So, her session is a good break for us – nothing more than that!
