The first forgettable Diwali !

Its that time of the year again. Sounds of crackers, colors everywhere, sweets, and fun. Well diwali is back with a bang. Only this one is different for me. This diwali would begin with me waking up sleepily in a stuffy little room, feeling irritated. Then it would involve a run to the bathroom and then to the mess hoping to grab a bite before the 8.30 class. Yes! Class! On Diwali. Well i wouldnt have believed that any sane institution would have classes on diwali a year ago. But enter IIMB. Sanity redefined. Well the worst part is, this is the first diwali where i dont feel the excitement and anticipation. The first diwali where i am not spending the night before at my uncle's place having a good dinner and bursting crackers. The first diwali where i dont get to taste that wierd cocoction that my mum makes. The first diwali i wished i wasnt there where i was! Well i am writing this the night before. Thinking of back home and fun. In a typical IIMBian style people are trying to push fun at you. There is some block decorating contest. WTF! And then Dandya. Who cares! Diwali to me is defined by being on the road at 5 am trying to light a lar. Diwali to me is being among the friends and relatives. This is a diwali where i am writing company forms, attending pre placement talks and attending classes. Above all this diwali, i am at IIMB. Ya ya sure...IIMB rocks!

Dude,
Get a life. Whats keeping you from taking off. The Tyaga I knew had no remorse in bunking classes. Don't become a slave to the institution. And WTF are you talking about bursting crackers. If memory serves me right, its been a long time since you burst crackers. Everyone grows up from the crackers stage and we have come to accept that. So stop whining about things you wouldn't do even otherwise. Nice blog you have running here. I see a lot of F1 stuff thrown around. I'd appreciate it if you give the F1 bit a little less attention and work on variety. Well thats just my 2 Cents. Listening to other people's advice on how to run blogs defeats the whole concept. Anyways, here is a quick tip on attracting people's attention, put some naked pictures (of celebreties... not of you... even the thought of it makes me wanna retch...just kidding). Like the good folks of rock 'n roll yore had put it, "Stick it to the man" Get into the spirit of the celebration and use the dandya sticks to break some knees and poke eyes. double points if it is a professor you hate, triple if it is a professor you like.
Happy Diwali.
