College - Part 1

Friday, June 25, 2010 Posted by Bikramjit Singh Mann

I was reading a article by one of my blogger friends, reading her article made me think of my times ..

College .. The word itself is so nostalgic.. we have so many memories attached with it .. I sometimes think of the time and seem to get lost in the huge ocean of memories , makes we want to go back in time to those days, Its been ages since I have left college but the stuff we did , the memories, the history we made .. each time I remember one such episode it lightens me up.. I have that twinkle in the eye, that energy , rush of blood which goes missing otherwise in the normal day to day routine that we call LIFE.

We have left college in search of new adventures, new roads, new ambitions.. but i for one still remember those days.. the 5 year of my life that I spent in college. The friends I made , the way we became friends , the silly things we did , the attitude, The no nonsense way , giving two hoots to life as if we were unbeatable.. nothing could touch us .. Not even KARNAIL SINGH the SHO of sector 11 police station.. :)
Or the taunts and abusive language of RAJ KUMAR the new SHO of sector 11 police station.. Going back the very next day to college and almost beating up the same guy because of whom we were taken to police station, Onkar singh a friend shouting Abuse to Karnail singh and then dashing into the college lecture theaters , so as he is not found..

Parents almost going nuts coming to know.. My dad almost threw me out of the house, when he found we had been rounded up and locked up, My grandfather I admire him so much, he stood by me and gave my bail.

The last night looking at the books for next days exams, having your friends stand outside the window to help you with answers and Ravjote singh my Friend standing in the exam hall asking the teacher to Allow me to Cheat.. :)

Not attending any classes then having to run after teachers to get the lectures sorted.. MR AGGARWAL my physics teacher swearing No matter what he will not sort them.. then the scheming of stopping the postman on way to college to get the roll numbers .. trying to Patao the clerk to get the roll number.

Come diwali the burning of crackers in Mr GAUBA's class.. Attaching it to a slow burning thing and 15-20 minutes into the lecture DHAAAAAAMMMMMM and Mr GAUBA (my chemistry professor) .. God bless him.. trying to be phylosophical about it trying psychology on us, saying its the bad spirits or demons who are doing this.. and we students are so good ..

Sitting for hours in canteen, asking the guy to get tea and if ask for money throw a cup , and his saying ok ok leave it give it next month , then when he came next month , taking his book of accounts , slashing the days which had most money "IS DIN TO HUM COLLEGE AYE HI NAHIN"... (we did not come to college this day) a bill of 200 Rs slashed to 100 then give him rs 50 "BAAKI AGLE MAHINE MAIN ADJUST" (rest adjust next month)... and when it came to get NO dues signed he trying to be funny, cause it was his time then..

Petrol in bikes gets finished , going to teachers car park with a pipe and polythene bag, sucking the petrol out .. filling our bikes .. the uphill trips we made ...

Standing at the gates, any girl passing she is mine.. blah blah trying to find ways to impress girls.. sometimes end up picking a fight.. beating up a guy thinking it would impress girls .. NO LUCK.. :(

Sitting in canteen and someone coming running "PANGA HO GAYA".. without asking what , just running for it, shouting "BABBAR" , "CHERRY" ,  "RAVI",  "BEDI", "HANDLE"  come on and they in turn coming folding there shirt arms up to elbows..

I am going to write about stuff in parts, those were the good old days , beautiful days..

    Dedicating this song to your post:

    Enjoy! BTW very nice post...made me nostalgic :)

  19. Bikram Says:

    @insignia :- Thanks for the comment, Why wait for next one .. let me come over he heh he :) Yes I did have a exciting college life cause my School life sucked big time with the bullying and all.. so all that anger and stuff that was inside came out in college.. which is not good cause a lot of people got hurt in the way right or wrong i dont know about it ... but If I had not had the school life then probably i would not have been the way i was in College. Though I must say I never did anything wrong to anyone deliberately.. we had fun but Boy fun the usual... End of the day I was always afraid of the slap from my father and grandfather, so i did have some values then also...
    Thank you

  20. Bikram Says:

    Thank you so much. Glad to see there are so many people who think the same way ...

  21. Thought for the day Says:

    Ha Ha those memories bring a smile on my face too brother. We were surely 10 feet tall and bullet proof those days with the antiques we did - to think about it now about those times and thought less actions we used to do - MAAAANNNNNN those were some crazy times or we were crazy - but only in a good way i would defend all our actions - and for a moment dare to be self absorbed in how cool we were - yes we did the guys stuff for sure - however we were on a remote level righteous dudes too, so no worries - life was well lived and i hope every guy gets to go through that phase for a fulfilled life and above it to have friends like you to truly engage in the simulating journey we shared.

    Good times - Amen
