Learning biology is fun. Mrs. Sayeeda introduced us to the subject. Though the introduction was very mundane. Mrs. Bhadran picked up, from the latter in Std 9.
I've had biology as my subject for more than six years or so. My perception of the subject has chaneged, but the affection remains the same. Botany was ever liked by me, i guess, but Zoology is interesting. More so, because it concerns you and me, alike. Laughing, talking, staring at Sabella, the staff downloading colour pictures, from the computer at the Department, attending Zoology classes, drawing histo diagrams during classes, discussing about the day's news....
One of the things that i've always enjoyed about Zoology, is the jokes, that we crack at it's expense.
Di- A Taxonomist.
Di, S, and me were walking to the bustop. We'd just finished an exam on Zoology, and Di was frustrated with it. We had Ecology as a paper, and Ecology can get on one's nerves. She was talking about her way of writing answers.
Di : 'If i were the mother of ecology, i'd put all the green plants under one family.
It's obviously scandalous to do so. I kept quiet.
Di continued, 'Animals with four legs will belong to one family, and those with two legs comprise another.'
S: Which are the animals which come the two-legged category.
Me: S, don't we walk on two legs???
Di and S, turn towards me, treating me with new-found realisation.
There. We laughed at Di's innovativeness, and conveniently switched to something else.
