The One and Only #WoWe Week 1

‘Chinki!’

‘Gurkha!’

‘Watchman!’

‘Made in China!’

‘Hakka Noodle!’

Ever since Tenzing had started college in a new city, post winning a full scholarship, in one of the most prestigious management institutions of India, these were the words he was welcomed with.

Being addressed as thus hurt, but what never failed to secretly amuse him was that his fellow students saw his typical features and assumed that he wasn’t even Indian. He resolved to make something of himself and bring recognition to his state in the North-East of India.

As if living away from family, and all alone, wasn’t bad enough, Tenzing was the student no one wanted to befriend.

With no friends to spend time with, Tenzing started spending after hours outside college. The ground behind his college reminded him of home, lush green and welcoming. Nature never judged him. Studies became his solace and he lost himself in his books. The first term results shocked everyone, including Tenzing. He had topped the class!

Sitting in his favourite place at the edge of the precipice, Tenzing smiled to himself, with a thought that he would no longer try to fit in, he would stand out and be proud of it!

  1. That sounds so relevant, M. Many
    Indians from the north-east face these barbs. I’m so glad Tensing decided to focus on the good in life and proved to himself and others too how he stood out!

  2. It is strange how we interpreted the prompt. I took the person in the prompt as a female and you took as a male. And that is what I so love about prompts. And I am glad that Tenzing realised his worth and decided to not mix in the crowd. It is not easy to stand out from the crowd, requires determination and will power. Loved your take. 🙂

  3. Reminded me of the book Wonder. That line – Why fit in when you’re born to stand out – that should be the tag line of everyone’s life. lt’s a wonderful take, positive and heartening.

  4. Reminded me of the advertisement “Janate to sub hai lekin manate kitane hai?” Unfortunately much needs to be done on changing the mindset of the main land Indians about our own clan from the North Eastern frontiers.
    As for the tale, the books and solace are the best companions when it comes to boosting the morale and building the confidence. Glad that the protagonist took the right path to reach the real highs of life.
    Thanks M for this wonderful opportunity to write the fictions based on prompts. Look forward to next week’s prompt and keep my fingers crossed (for me to be able to write on next prompt 🙂 )
