Days In Heaven: New phase of life!



After two weeks of holidays, our second year classes started on August 1,2007. Still I can't explain the type of emotion i had in my mind. I was kinda tensed or worried and was really excited too. Except one or two, all others in my gang belonged to other branches, especially mechanical. I should admit that i was little scared about the computer science department after getting horrible descriptions from our seniors. During holidays i even planned to give a request to principal for branch exchange. But it didn't happen and i was forced to join my new class. 

It was almost like a first year class. Almost 60% of the faces were new to me. As usual, i sat at the back bench. Slowly we all started to introduce each other and first day went like that. The classes were really boring and staff advisor Vineetha miss warned us in the class itself that she wants absolute discipline from us. Soon i was able to find a gang in back bench and i got more involved in party activities. Even though classes were boring, we made the maximum noise and distracted everyone. Soon we were termed as the 'worst batch' of computer science:)..Our back bench gang consisted of Anooj, Melvin, Aswin, Nirmal, Anoop, JP, Manu, Subin, Ibu and many. We loved to sit in Sivakumar Sir's class. Even though sir gives us full mark for attendance and assignments we never used to bunk his classes. Mostly we wanted to hear the excellent Malayalam words that flowed from his mouth, and there is no single student who hasn't heard those. Sir liked me a lot and whenever he came to our class he called me 'mone'.. in front of that there will be some super words that Malayalam dictionary has ever defined:)..I hated Sathi Devi's maths class like anything. She thinks she is so intelligent,funny,the best teacher and all..But truly saying, she is a fat lady with a very poor humor sense and great stupidity. We had maximum fun in every class and labs. Still one incident makes me laugh a lot. Manu and Ibu were considered as one of the best couples in our class(377 wasn't legal then). Once during Discrete structure class, teacher made Manu sit in the front bench. As we were confused with her action she gave this explanation.."it's better you sit in the front bench. else you will feel like kissing the guys sitting next to you"! Once our staff advisor even cried due to the never ending complaints about us, but that never made us good students:)..One of the most exciting thing happened in our 3rd semester was the arrival of new batch. Our party welcomed the freshers with a super and spirited campaigning. But unfortunately for me, we got into a verbal spat with Sathi Devi and she reported to my staff advisor that I was the main person behind that. Soon she had a feeling that i was behind all the violent activities taking place in college and asked me to stop it immediately. But i wasn't ready to leave the party. Soon my mom,Anitha Miss and all came to know about my party activities and i had to put a control over that. Anitha Miss happened to be my Maths tuition teacher till S5 and still remains very close to my mom. In almost every class she used make fun of me in the name of party, but was very caring and loving towards everyone. I can proudly say that she is the only teacher i still respect in college.

Our college saw the best Diwali celebration during our 3rd semester. An excellent celebration which gifted us a mass suspension and notice against 23 students for almost setting the college in fire9out of which 4 were from my class):)..Just before the lunch, principal issued not to use any crackers inside the campus. This really inspired us to use the crackers inside our class. Still i remember a terrific rocket launch which narrowly missed  Baby Sir's head:).. At last police had to enter our campus for bringing the situation under control. Unluckily my name was included in this too and mom had to meet the teachers. But HOD said i wasn't involved in any of these, but my gang happened to be notorious. Another great event was Holi. Unlike first year, the celebration was limited to senior block only. SFI strictly told that no seniors should enter the first year block because of the unholy attack by our seniors on 1st year girls. Soon came pooja holidays. As i didn't keep my pooja that year, i decided to celebrate it at MC hostel(just above Pappanamcode Beverages). So we all kept beer for our pooja:)..I was drinking it after 2 long years. Within one week we had our tour. It still remains as one of the unforgettable days of my life, due to pleasant and unpleasant incidents. The unpleasant incident was the fight with mechanical branches. Many idiots made a lot of misunderstandings between us and it ended in a fight. The fight began at Hogenakkal and ended the day we reached back. It remains as one the darkest days in my college life. But we really had an excellent tour. The first day of tour gifted me the taste of Smirnoff. Second day i got promoted to 8pm whisky and third day back to Romanov Vodka. My graph was on a high..From beer to whisky in one week, i was on the way to become a professional drinker:)..I still remember how Faiz scared Neema with his 'Jabe se tere naina' act(believe me, he was in a white towel):)..We had all the fun in bus by singing,dancing,proposals:)..It was too boring to get back to classes. The issues with mechanical branches were soon solved. For that everyone has to thank a guy called Vishnu(Soap). One of my best friend ever, and unarguably the best student of 2006-2010 batch. He was truly an inspiring figure for all of us and was always in front to lead us. We became friends while working for party. And he was a passionate party worker, can say a true communist:)..The last days of 3rd semester ended in theatres. There was a huge clash between Om Shanti Om and Saawariya, but finally SRK fans emerged victorious. I still regret watching Saawariya the first day, first show:(..Soon our 1st year results came. It was only the beginning, i lost almost a good number of papers. To add to this disaster, our 3rd semester exams were conducted before the actual date. I was almost sure of a wash out after attending that. Before the exams ended, my supplementary exams started. Still i don't know why i wrote those, because still i am writing that:)..And the labs turned out to be another nightmare.Forgetting all those horrible days, we all entered into a new semester.

Semester 4


Even semesters were always exciting. The reason was simple..Less working days and more college fests. As usual classes started and we started bunking. Very soon valentine's day came, eventually it was Kishor's birthday. Later, Kishor turned out to be my best friend in college. So we gathered at a hostel and started our usual procedures. For the 1st time i had brandy in my life, and i almost decided to give up drinking. After coming back one of my friend wanted to enter 1st year block. Somehow we stopped him form that, but soon demanded another thing. We had a CPP teacher who was one of the sexiest in our college. But unluckily she was a guest lecturer and soon left. We got the chance to attend some of her classes and believe me, the class attendance was full that time. My friend wanted to propose her, or at least touch her. Somehow we took him to class and the 4th hour started. It was Preeja Miss's hour. It was so difficult to sit in class after getting drunk, but since teacher came we couldn't escape. when alcohol goes in everyone will start exhibiting their original nature. Soon teacher asked me,Kishor and others to come in front bench, and we were left with no choice. It was disgusting to sit there with mouth closed and responding to teacher in sign language:(..After that i didn't drink for more than one year:)..We had the habit of hearing songs in our mobile during class times. Me and Faiz always used to hear 'kabhi kabhi mere dil mein'. Once while we were enjoying this song, suddenly our CPP teacher came in. Incidentally the song portion she heard was "suhaag raat hain ghoongat utha raha hon main":)..Nothing interesting really happened in class during this semester, other than the usual bunking,party activities,rebellion against teachers etc.

The main time pass of that semester was definitely the college fests. That year Nirvaan turned out to be the best. They had a wonderful choreo-nite and a star nite by Motherjane. Nirvaan also witnessed the debut of Anand Kumar(Machan), who later turned out to be one of the best dancers our college has ever seen. That year too Aufait kept its standard. I still remember two best things happened that year. One was the 'Kallorisaale' dance performance by our college team. Prince really set the stage on fire with his unforgettable performance. The second was the debut performance of Year Outz! Lead by Anand, they impressed  the complete audience with their 'Ponmagal' performance. The team members were Anoop(my very best friend and a stylish dancer), Sabarish, Aswin, Unnikrishnan, Archit etc. I loved their performance like anything, and Anand being my junior from school, i joined with the team. I was termed as the 'manager' of yearoutz, or rather i chose that position. But we were like best friends from the beginning and still i am with the team. Those guys are my best friends forever. Another great team which emerged that year was Purple Blood. Soon our college team left to Calicut for participating in NIT Ragam. We had a team of almost 150 members. It was one of the best days of my life. On the 2nd day of the event, me and my batch mates went to toddy shop. After having a nice amount of toddy and food, we entered for Karthik's concert. Believe me, concerts are the best when we have alcohol inside:)..Our college finished 2nd for the event. I stayed back with my classmates even after the college team left. We had a terrific outing at Calicut, and got drowned in special biriyani's. When we got back, our classes were about to end. Me and my friends wanted to have a taste of condonation that time. So we completely bunked the last week classes. We used to come to college at 9, enter the Information Centre(IC) and play cards all the time. We even had chess,caroms,football etc inside IC. The leader of this club was our dearest 'Sekharan'. And by the end we got back in good terms with mechanical branches, actually most of my friends were there. Soon attendance list was published and unfortunately for all of us. we had no condonation that semester. Surprisingly i got 80% attendance:(

Soon our 3rd semester results were out. Luckily i didn't get a wash out. But i lost a good amount of paper this time too. We were expecting our next exams soon, but finally we had to wait 3-4 months for writing it. University has a procedure of giving semester breaks for 4th and 6th semester(for 1 month), but due to some issues there we got a summer vacation:)..In between supplementary exams were held. In between that our batch got shocked by the death of our dear friend Joji(Mechanical Production). It was really unbelievable for us. He was a friendly,lovable guy. Joji, as i write this, i like to tell you that our batch really missed you..whenever i visited your class, i always saw your face first..still you are in our thoughts..May your soul rest in peace! Our exams were conducted after 3 months. The exams were far far better than the last two. We just got 4-5 days of holiday after the exams. We were getting ready for our Industrial Visit, projects..To become the real seniors!!!
