You can expect an on-demand off from the teacher if you are not ready to enjoy your class. Teachers do agree sometimes but only on one condition – Chatting without shouting. So, you can at least have a break inside the class and keep your gossips going! Remember one thing, during this time teacher will remain inside the class, so it’s better to be mindful with words!
Some of the teachers have their special way of scolding people and that become the trademark styles. Years after years students enjoyed the same words or actions with loads of laugh (of course after the class or outside the school). These teachers are famous among the students only for their activities!
Gokhale is a heaven for foodies and you just can’t resist the awesome ‘phuchkas.’ Like ‘old man and the sea’ students love the ‘old’ phuchkawala with his phuchkas (the irresistible mouth-watering tiny round fried ball filled mashed potato with tamarind water mixed with other spices). This, you cannot enjoy it alone and students follow this rule religiously as the flocked around the old man in groups. Remember, everybody has their own special demand for the filing so it takes longer than usual to complete one round. Usually, students take the note of number of phuchkas they are gorging in as old man finds it difficult to follow the count.
