Impressive personality, long white beard,unpredictable nature & dare to take any body on task.
I still remember, when he enters from main gate of school, You will not find a single student roaming or chatting within 50m radius.
Physics class room in XIScA was on first floor & i used to sit near window facing playground.
It was papa's standing instruction that, if you are late for the class then you don't need permission to enter, simply & quietly enter & take your seat.
One fine morning, i was late for class & decided to skip papa's period.
Was returning to canteen & saw NS coming from gafoor basti side.
She stopped & request me to go along because she, like every one is afraid of Papa.
I thought for a while & voluntarily to impress her rather to help, accompanied to the class room.
Unaware of a real BAD MORNING.
We enter the class & started to move quietly to the seat but papa halted me in the middle.
"Abe sooowar, kya company baagh meiN tehalne aaya hai?
KahaN tha ab tak?"
By the time i try to open my mouth, papa caught me.
It was papa, who asked a question & i was knowing that, if i reply he will beat me badly & if i don't reply he will beat me.
He removed his wrist watch,
I saw him doing that & prepared myself for the assault.
In the middle of decorating me with slaps & punches, he asked about my father.
I told him the name & speed of assault increased because he knew my father.
- According to many, you are more prone to problems if any body knows your parents because you must pay the price of being hailed from good family.
After class i was figuring out my fault.
I complied by his instruction & he beats me, why?
Then my fellow told me that he has asked in the beginning of class that where is hero who used to sit next to window & always looks out side as if to see Mujra.
Every body agreed that it was a real bad day.
Now, NS, she approached me, i didn't spoke to her.
Evening she came to my house with one of her friend & apologised for the incidence.
She felt sorry because i returned to class room on her request.
Next day, we had a nice treat on her account in canteen.
While attending the class, papa was hilarious as usual & i also forget the past because after all he used to love all of us very much.
I wrote this because today morning while talking to one of my school friend who reminded me the incident.
Thank you AI for reminding me.
I will try to key down more of papa here, Inshah Allah.
