its been a while since i wanted to make this post but i just never got around to it, john has already partly said what i have meant to say for a long time. FIRSTLY i disagree that the problem is only in the back row. .
ever notice that the class is always noisy? especially when thr is no lecturer. remember that time back in primary school, no teacher in the classroom, everyone is yapping away, then someone yells that the guru disiplin is walking down the aisle, its magic how all the havoc disappears and evryone is seated and quiet in a second. BUT if it is just a kind substitute teacher then there is a possibility everyone is stil noisy and the teachers presence makes no difference.
this seems to be the situation right now, not every class fo course but more than once in a while. i dont want to say if i am talking about guys or girls because Dr. Ni Ni already said it in lecture yesterday. if dr Ni Ni or MMC are in the class, so many are stil talking and it is so noisy, not only in the back, all over. but if Dr Imad(microb) or Prof Naznin is lecturing, everyone shuts their yap. what is that about? is it respect or fear? so what i want to say is just this, if you do make it to class (i admit sometimes i dont) and you are stil awake. it doesnt matter where you are sitting, respect the professor and respect the lecture and do everyone a favour by being quiet.
SECONDLY and perhaps much more important is something i should have made a point months ago. this is regarding our visit to the hospital last block for a class with Dr Kyaw and he asked us to visit the ward. on the way to the lift lobby, we were marching like an angry mob with all the noise we were making even while waiting for the lift then we got news that we had to turn back and everyone jz had to make their own sounds of disappointment. all the 'oooooohhh's and the 'alaaaaaaaaaaa's the whole group was so noisy all the way in and all the way out and i want to emphasize that it was especially noisy in the lift lobby.
for God's sake please understand what is a hospital. did anybody other than me realize the looks on the patients and their family walking around and waiting for the lift? can you imagine what they may be waiting for? i did realize some were happy, maybe welcoming a nephew into this world, some were neutral, perhaps thr for a blood test or something, and some had a genuine look of concern on their faces, who knows what news they were dreading to hear. but the whole lot of them were staring at our batch, frankly i am surprised they didnt throw anything at us, thinking we were at disneyland. again i wont say guys or girls cuz you should know, the whole friggin hospital heard you.
arent you ashamed of yourselves?
please take some time to think deeply about this
