Grace #atozchallenge









College life has always been identity making or identity crises days. How one deals with it is a revolution in itself.

Few years back I went for a movie with friends and it was a houseful show. While we were waiting outside there was a bunch of young girls all giggly and silly...they must be 18 or 19 too excited for the movie.

I could see there was this other gang of boys but there was no fanfare among boys or girls on seeing the other group. They didn’t want to impress anyone, actually they were from the same college or maybe class. The body language was not of teens going mushy but the gossiping-types.

All the hell broke loose when suddenly one could hear abusive sloganeering
SARA IS A B****
SARA IS A B****
SARA IS A B****
SARA IS A B****

Those boys were yelling on top of their lungs. My Gosh! Sara was one of the girls from that group, I could see all girls sympathizing with her.

People don’t realise what they are doing and how mean their behaviour gets and can sabotage someone. But this coy looking girl was different.

She went up to them amidst everyone’s glare and very gracefully asked them to stop the ruckus.
She said “Even you are here for a movie and so are we, nobody needs to create a scene. If you guys want we can leave but stop belittling yourself.”
The boys shut up and both the groups went on to watch the movie. I don’t know whether Sara enjoyed the movie or not but she never let the grace leave her face. If she wanted she could have cried, or abused back with her friends but she did nothing so just went on with maybe even more grace than before.
