Essay: Our College Canteen
Title: Our College Canteen
All the corridors of the college should lead to canteen but unfortunately. It is in one corner of the college. It has a small window through which the contractor supplies us everything. For the last some days, our principal has allowed a stall of Polka ice-cream. There are two other counters for books and stationery and beverages. It is only the parents who visit the stationery counter. The students go there only under compulsion. Their most favourite haunt is the ice-cream vendor. The students flock round it and buy it in different colours and sizes. Their mouth waters and they want to break the queue to have it first. The second favourite counter is that of beverages. They wash down their lunch with some cola or a cup of tea. They sip it slowly so that it Fist for the whole period. As the bottle starts showing its bottom, their speed also decreases. They suck the last drop with a heavy heart as if it is the end of their friendship with the bottle.
The third counter to attract a small crowd is the place where they get snacks. Toffees and chocolates are in great demand. Some students, who miss their lunch box at home, take bread–pakoras or slices and cakes. Some teachers also make a bee line for this counter. Every one is in a hurry. There is a rule of come first, get first but the students do not follow it. They always hand over money to the students who are just near the counter and ask them to purchase the snacks for them. As the recess period is over, they leave their disney-land with a heavy heart. The students go their way to the class-rooms. One can see gloom written large on their face. They get themselves ready to attend the last period willy-nilly.
