Nostalgia #2

Alert: Esoteric post coming up!

For the first time in 4 years I'm going to miss,

The Good,
1. The fight over whether we're "my young soldeirs of MIT" or that "soldiers follow orders blindly you should not just be soldiers"!
2. Shailar mama. And his speeches (which were apparently the same since times immortal) which I never understood.
3. Prof. Rane's: "aaj mee marathith bolnar nahi, aaj mein marathi mein nahi bolunga (he does like tautology... lol) kyon ki mein jaanta hoon ki humare bahut se vidyarthi desh ke alag alag kono se aaye hain .... etc etc"! Does that remind anyone of Chupke Chupke and "hum hindi bolte vaqt angrezi shabdon ka prayog uchit nahi samajhte".
4. And the "yaad karo woh sarhad pe khade sipahi jo barish ki parwah nahi karte, dhoop ki parwah nahi karte, thand mein humari raksha karte hain, jinki vajah se aaj hum yeh din mana rahe hain".
Danny, Agent R and others please feel free to add any other Raneisms you can remember.

The Weird,
1. This lady from the MIT school who would speak hindi with an accent. The Angrez-chale-gaye-mujhe-chod-gaye types!
2. The *cultural* program but the kids that I have not yet been successful in seeing!
3. MIT school choir... Gawd if my school's choir trainer was to come across this, he'd suicide!

And the chaos in the parking lot-cribbing about either the rain or the sun (depending on whether its Aug 15th or Jan 26th)- Asking our HOD for a treat as Aug 15th is his birthday-the socialising in front of the E&TC porch and the list goes on!

And dear people, to keep up the spirit of the day, here's wishing you all a very happy Independence Day and the extended weekend!

P.S: For those of you wondering, I graduated/waiting for my results for officially graduating from a college called MIT Women Engineering College located in Kothrud, Pune.

    Well I can imagine our dearest school choir teacher Professor Antea hanging from a noose but Mrs.Pereira would probably have come to his gracious rescue. Pouting lips et all. What a difference in the two. Wonder how they managed to get along. Well Happy independence day to you too my very own story waali and keep writing those stories with the non fictional touch.
    Don't tell me you haven't guessed already
