He’s The Unbelievable Human-Butterfly Of The 21st Century

I have known Surya Gauda from school days. We were both in one class; sometime. I still remember his ankle length red-gumboots. No one in the school—other than him—had the f***ing guts to wear such footwear in the school.

He was a notorious backbench-er type of student. Although, I was myself a second last bench-er but I wasn’t even close to him in the madness. I don’t think there was any teacher who wasn’t his prey.

He made sure that he had his claws of madness on all the teachers; and classmates.


After school, I never met him, until few months back when we made a WhatsApp group of school alumni. We got connected after 22 years or so. I was just casually checking his Facebook profile one day and I was shocked to see the transformation. I saw his photographs doing different social activities.


Surya—now—is a journalist, a social activist and trustee of a school—a beautiful transformation. I never thought he would transform into what he’s today. Although, he must have been a beautiful person inside right in the school days but I failed to see the depth.

The most troublesome school boy is a noble man, the most notorious student is a compassionate teacher and the one who was most reported is a reporter now.

I have seen many transformation in life, including mine, but this one is a real vibrant and radical one.

Thank you very much!
