The student and the parliamentarian The elections are over and the result is out. It's time for the new session, new lessons and of course a new class teacher. It's somewhat like the atmosphere in a school where the students are excited after being promoted to a new class. They will have new friends in the form of new MPs elected this time inside the house as if new students are admitted in a class. Lessons will be absolutely new because they have to start afresh and a new class teacher is the speaker of the house. Here the role of the class teacher is limited and the students make the most out of the sessions. They shout, taunt each other and quarrel. There are specific seats for each of them and I remember, during our school days, most of us used to sit at the same place inside the classroom. Occasionally friends changed their seats based on their alignment with others because during childhood making and breaking a friendship was a regular affair. In parliament or assembly also we witness few politicians change their allegiance and sit with the other groups. One stark similarity between students and many politicians is they behave in an immature way on many occasions and faces all-round criticism. Members, how do you find this comparison? If you think it's acceptable then you can add more to the list.
