Yes, it's been a long long time. Sadly,the University has no interest in the creative lives of it's students. It's more busy testing our survival instincts. But no more explanations.
So we joined M.A. Cool. What we didn't know was that M.A, in the University's definition meant Mental Asylum (as B-30, with an admirable show of astute thought,inscribed on their door). When it's not dogs taking up residence in your bathrooms or -worse still- in your rooms, then it's Bais who mop the entire corridor with the same unwashed mop with which they mopped up the doggie pee (eeeewwww!!). I shall restrain myself to the point format to curtail ranting. So here goes:
You know you're firmly entrenched in M.A at the University when:
1)You start assaulting your poor defenseless floor-mate while she sleeps, just for the heck of it.In fact,you measure the days worth by the number of times you make her scream.
2)People stop jumping and running to the aid of the aforementioned floor-mate,when the former point is played out since, "it's so common now"
3)One actually practices the axiom 'early to bed and early to rise': only in our case it's early in the morning and early in the afternoon respectively.
4)Ones metabolism resembles an alien life form's: resulting in loud singing (at the least)in early hours, when normal people indulge in lala-land fantasies.
5)Your search for healthy food leads you to the nearest Subway, almost everyday.
6)You become adept at pushing 200 words to 500 words just by force of will.
7) You check for doggie pee before you put your foot down on the corridor floor.
8)Pepsi is your life-line.
9)You haven't read fiction in...hell you can't remember since when!
10)Second Hand smoke is the air you breathe.
11)We wash clothes at 2 am.
12)Songs are written in praise of the praise-worthy campus shop and it's owner.
13) You spend hours plotting the demise of the internet guy: who's services are @#%&*
14) You can't even plan your escape 'cause you don't know when the holidays are.
This perhaps throws some light on the life and times of the hostelite/student at the University. We welcome new comers with open arms: especially if they bear food, which will be handy when the hunger pangs hit. Sometime before sunrise :D
A New Logo for Doordarshan - Doordarshan. A name that evokes imagery of stately and erudite news readers and mind numbing footage of Giani Zail Singh cutting ribbons at state functions...
