Cupid strikes

Suresh was a handsome and good student given to studious habits.He was in the second year of his graduation course.He was considered a well behaved and decent chap till a girl student of another discipline lodged a complaint with the Principal that he winked at her while passing by.She ignored initially but found him always winking at her.He was summoned to the Principal’s room and questioned.He flatly denied that he ever did such a thing and that he did not remember having noticed her.Considering his past good behaviour, he was let off with a warning that he should be careful.

Within three days two other girls came and complained that Suresh made passes at them by winking.They knew about the earlier complaint and made sure that he did wink at them before coming to Principal.When the young lad again denied any mischief, the prinicipal was not amused and suspended him for a week from college.The poor chap pleaded that he never winked and that he was actually scared of girls and gave wide berth to them when they came before him.But the earlier incident having attained wide publicity , all the girl students whenever they passed by him watched to see whether he winked at them.But he invariably turned his face away from them and hurried past his way.

Everything seemed alright after the punishment of a week’s suspension till one day an aged lady professor nearing 55 took exception to the young scamp winking at her while she was hurrying to the library.This was height of misdemeanour and the Principal decided to dismiss him.The boy again pleaded no knowledge.The fact that the lady professor was monstrous in size with ugly face that always wore a scowl and a slouching mouth made the Principal ponder whether any boy of 18 years would ever look let alone wink at such a person.The boys professors had all good word about him The pricipal decided to probe further.

He was sent to an ophthalmologist who had Suresh examined thoroughly.There was no complaint and was found in perfect condition.But the eye doctor was a bit of psychologist.He went out for a minute and sent a young nurse inside to put some drop in Suresh’s eyes.As expected the nurse reported that he did wink at her..He sent another nurse in the room to fetch something.She also reported that he winked at her.The doctor was now convinced that it was a case of neve twitching whenever he was under stress.The initail embarrassment of being pulled up before Principal and the warning admonished had actually aggravated the problem.His nerves in the eye region twitched involuntarily whenever he saw ladies giving an impression of winking.With proper counselling he got over the problem.

When this was reported to the Principal and everyone who had complained were informed, this amusing episode should have ordinarily ended.But the girl who had initially complained against him felt much remorse and went to him to say sorry and tender her apologies.It was then Cupid chose to strike and the young things fell in great love.

  5. Oh this is so cute...!!! Loved it! I remember an old hindi film where the comedian had a squint and was therefore accused by many women of ogling at them. "kahin pe nigahen kahin pe nishana.."!!
