|A student over enthusiastic in speaking only in English started using bizarre vocab.|
Bizarre Vocab Subba Rao “You are so smart Juggernaut, you answer every question in chemistry class, can we form a study group with you as the group leader to help me and few others to understand chemistry and other subjects?” asked Mallikarjun. Mallikarjun recently joined the school in 12th grade; he was tall with a well trimmed fine mustache, looked older than most students in the class though with ready smile looked too innocent for his age. His cheeks were rough with mild bloody eruptions as if rubbed against coarse sandpaper on a regular basis. Juggernaut was pleasantly surprised to hear that somebody called him smart. Nobody either at his home or school called him smart. At home he was infamous for making mischief and was called a “Skylark” for playful behavior. After the school, he never opened the school bag at home, he thought that the bag was intended to store and carry books to school; event at school he opened the bag only if teachers insist. The only subject he paid some attention was chemistry and sometimes physics; and scored well in the tests with no effort. Since the new student Mallikarjun asked him to start a study group, Juggernaut took the responsibility of study group leader very seriously; to avoid embarrassment of failing to answer questions from the study group members, Juggernaut started reading all the subjects seriously before the beginning of each study group session. To his own surprise, Juggernaut was getting good grades in other subjects as well besides chemistry. Unexpectedly, Mallikarjun became a catalyst in Juggernaut's education endeavor. English as a subject was taught from early age in India. Most Indian students were well versed in English not only as subject but as a language of learning other subjects in physical and social sciences. Mallikarjun though started poorly in all the subjects, he improved considerably along with other members of the study group and they all attributed their success to Juggernaut's leadership in the study group. Mallikarjun started communicating only in English at the study group sessions to further improve his vocabulary in English. This annoyed some of the study group members since they preferred to speak in the native language. Nevertheless, Mallikarjun continued his practice of speaking only in English using big words, sometimes he made up new words and expressions in English that sounded bizarre and weird.
