Brief:

Let me share with you a heart-wrenching tale about my friend Rajesh from school. He was in 9th grade and had an unrequited love for his classmate who was admired by many for her stunning beauty. The incident I am about to narrate took place during the morning prayer assembly, where Rajesh was wrongly accused and punished brutally in front of the entire school by the principal, resulting in a life-altering impact on his mental state and personality.

In 1976, I was a ninth-grade student at Jagriti-Niketan School in Jammu, where I witnessed a heart-wrenching incident that left a lasting impact on my friend Rajesh. Rajesh had an infatuation with a popular classmate known for her beauty, which ultimately led to him being beaten by the principal with a hockey stick in front of outsiders.

As a daily routine, the whole school would assemble in the morning just at the beginning of the school activities and the prayers started with the assembly. After the prayers, some students would come one by one and read out the news of the day. If some important message or notification would be there-that was read out by the school headteacher to the assembled students.

The Morning Assembly Incident

It all happened during the school’s daily morning assembly, where we would pray, and students would read out the news of the day. After the assembly, the principal called three students from our class and took them to his room. Later, we found out that the principal had beaten Rajesh with a hockey stick in front of outsiders, leaving us all worried about his well-being.

Rajesh’s Infatuation with a Classmate

We learned that Rajesh had developed an attachment to his classmate and expressed his feelings to us. Unfortunately, her father saw an enlarged picture of his daughter on the main street wall, which caused him great disturbance. He complained to the school principal and named Rajesh as the culprit, resulting in Rajesh being beaten by the principal.

The Severe Impact on Rajesh’s Psyche

 The incident had a severe impact on Rajesh’s psyche, and he became a different person altogether. When Rajesh returned to the class, we could tell that something had happened as he had tears in his eyes. It was only later when the teacher left the class that we went to Rajesh to ask him about the matter.

Lessons Learned from the One-Sided Crush

This incident teaches us the importance of thinking before we act and considering the consequences of our actions. It also highlights the adverse effects of bullying and how it can change a person’s personality. We should always be mindful of the impact our words and actions can have on others and strive to create a positive environment around us.

Rajesh’s story is a poignant reminder of the emotional toll of unrequited love. It’s a common experience that most of us go through at some point in our lives. However, it’s crucial to learn from these experiences and grow from them. Here are some lessons that we can learn from Rajesh’s one-sided crush:
It’s okay to express your feelings: It’s natural to feel scared or nervous when expressing your feelings to someone you have a crush on. However, it’s important to take a chance and let the other person know how you feel. You never know, they might feel the same way.

This punishment to Rajesh was a very cruel one that affected his psyche to a greater extent. He was a very sensible and intelligent fellow who was called by his friends as ‘Scientist’. He later did his research in chemistry and got a doctorate in the same from Chandigarh Punjab University. But alas, he did not live any longer and died at a very young age and the reason for his death is still not exactly known.

Rejection is not a reflection of your worth:

It’s easy to feel rejected and hurt when someone you have feelings for doesn’t reciprocate them. However, it’s important to remember that their rejection is not a reflection of your worth or value as a person.

Self-care is essential:

 When going through a difficult emotional experience like unrequited love, it’s essential to prioritize self-care.

In conclusion, Rajesh’s story serves as a reminder that our actions can have a significant impact on others, and we should always strive to be kind and empathetic towards one another. The incident also sheds light on the negative effects of bullying, and how it can lead to lifelong trauma.
