THE MASTER GREATER THAN THE STUDENT


THE MASTER GREATER THAN THE STUDENT

The Master is always brilliant with his statements. “When a girl breaks your heart into a hundred pieces, it is not a setback, but an opportunity to lend one piece each to hundred others who are in need of it!” Such declarations are his USPs. I remember saying, “awesome!” when I heard it.




The Student thus has exclusive access to unprinted lessons about ‘undying charisma’. But he has a stubbornly reasoning mind which has stagnated field work. Whereas theoretical classes span hours of scintillating brain-storming about the Master’s theories and the Student’s equally quick-witted corollaries, practical application haven’t yet been kick-started to the best of my knowledge! However, I have developed a lurking suspicion over some time that the Student may have gone ‘under-cover’ with his operations. Success will thus be incognito. Frequent and unpredictable smiles and dreamy eyes signal a favourable outcome. The Master is surprisingly non-committal.
This narrative is nevertheless not so much about the Student as it is about the Master! He can sweep any lady off her feet. Such power in his muscle bulk has been tested with a 100 kg dummy and he can do better. But, he prefers two of half that weight at any time. Besides, it is not with brawn that his conquests are won but with his brain and slick tongue!  I was privy to one such breath-taking conversation-starter and in no time I lamented about seeing him leave in a pair while I remained a gazer! His words were, “You can do better than give me the pride to walk alongside you into Dublin to the eye-popping and jaw-dropping strangers when later you allow me to surprise you with your favourite dish!” I wondered how he knew her favourites but I also inferred that it little mattered!

The humour contained in these lines is awesome.
