(Raj and Ravi, both Class X students in conversation.)
Raj : Hi Ravi, how are you?
Ravi : I am fine. So good to meet you here.
Raj : Well, I haven’t completed my project yet. So I thought I would get some picture post cards at this shop.
Ravi : All seven days of the week are hectic. I don’t remember when I relaxed last.
Raj : It is so stressful to attend school, complete the homework, go for tuitions for all the subjects, complete the homework given there too and now these regular projects.
Ravi : I am losing interest in most of the subjects as I don’t feel physically fit to cope up with everything.
Raj : The other day I went to the doctor as I had a daily headache which didn’t allow me to study at all. The doctor asked me to relax.
Ravi : Wish he knew what we are going through!
Raj : My parents feel sorry for me at times but they can’t help it. Everyone is going through the grind. There is stiff competition all around.
Ravi : You are correct. There is no time to feel sorry for ourselves, too. Anyway, go and buy these pictures before the shop closes.
Raj : O.K. bye. Take care.
