7th September, 2013, The results of Phase Test - III (an exam conducted by FIITJEE- my preferred choice of coaching institute for IIT) were out. I, Anindya and Piyush were almost flying down the stairs to see our results when some familiar voice called out"Deep"(my nickname - courtesy to Dilshad sir). we three turned immediately to find Prodipto, Standing behind us with a wicked smile as if he has topped the center-which no way is possible !
"I came 3rd, in our batch 11th in the center", he gave a wicked smile which clearly proved he got way more than he deserved.
You cheater ! That's why you insisted on sitting beside me in exam huh?
"Anindya, you got 284-1st in batch and 5th in center, Piyush you got 187-2nd in batch and 7th in center, and Deep-"
my throat choked.
"You have scored a TRIPLE DUCK".
What? Are you fucking kidding me?
My jaw dropped open.
"Yup. Three 0s - 0 in physics, 0 in maths and 0 in chemistry".

Prodipto added,"you must have marked the OMR sheet with pencil or have written your enrollment number wrong, you should consult the office - fast, before they cancel your scholarship".
Akash-"Yah, you always stood 2nd in the center, you can't just score a duck. That also triple?"
He couldn't hold more and burst into laughter. rest two joined.
Yes yes, laugh you bastards.
Piyush mocked,"Wonder what Trisha will think."
Trisha? Oh fuck!
Trisha- the hottie of our school, she studies in this same coaching center with me. recently we have became very good friends-well close friends, and there she is ! Standing like an Angel amidst the crowd, searching for her name in the list of results hanging. She finds it and gives a puppy eyes. .
She mouth,"167"and gives me a apologetic smile.
Holy cow! my heart skips a beat.She thinks i will be angry with her low score. Oh I am so dead !
She resumes searching-for what? another name? whose-mine? Shit !!
There she finally finds my triple duck at the bottom of fifth sheet. she stares at me, her expression unreadable.
My heart succumbs to my stomach.
Akash adds,"What will you say to Dilshad sir? He will kill you you know"
Dilshad Sir? Our chemistry teacher,the extraordinary genius who scored AIR Rank 22 in IIT and also incidentally is the most teasing person on planet? Holy double fuck!!
"Bro your face looks sick pale! You Okay? ", Prodipto asks concerned.
Am I okay? No I am fucking not Okay!
"Yes I am okay. I think I'll -" I am interrupted by the buzzing of my phone- it's dad.
Crap!! Triple duck just made my day triple fuck !!
" Okay am not okay........ I need to go to..................................... bathroom"
