Acronym for physical training and somewhat an Indian equivalent of ‘gym class’. PT, depending on one’s school, can include exercises that resemble a traffic policeman’s drill, march past and running several rounds of the school playground after the school assembly. It may also be a separate class where the students do all of the above and mercifully, play some sports.
