Front benchers or back benchers in school, but life gradually evens out bothRemember the school days when you were either a front bencher or a back bencher? As a front bencher you answered all the questions teacher asked, completed all assignments, scored in al tests and your name always figured in the top merit lists; the result day being your day.
If you were a backbencher, you enjoyed every moment in the class and school, never worried about tests, completed assignments within a jiffy i group at the back, knew to whistle perfectly, throw arrow right on target, rise into a loud laughter on any small reason, but always hid on result day and became hero on sports or arts day.
However once you are out in the open world and when you meet after a gap of years you find that life just evens out everything. Both would have become parents now, have a reasonable earning, a house a loving family and a position in the society around. It will be interesting that the back the old bencher among you would be regretting that he wasted his academic days, and the front bencher would be regretting how he did not enjoy school as the other .Both of you will go home and happily tell your family about the meeting and talk very high of the classmate.
If again you happen to meet after a few years both of you may be grandparents and your talking will be only about the grandchildren and the occasional ill health and inconvenience you face.
How life evens it out, whether you were a front bencher or backbencher in academic years !
