The week that was!

first aid

It started with my first sessionals(internal exams) of my MTech in MIT on 14 September. What an auspicious day as it was also my 22nd birthday! Three hectic days, five exams spoiled the whole idea of fun in the campus. On 16th, all of us were still not convinced that we were done with the exams and we are “supposed” to party and enjoy. Well I guess one of us did want to enjoy a lot as he(Vikram) was chasing another guy down the stairs and until he finally twisted his ankle! Ambulance was called and he was soon taken to the hospital!

While we were on our way for a cup of coffee the same night, Vikram returned back from hospital. We helped him to his room which delayed our coffee! As usual we took our coffee and were sitting on the footpath and having a chat when suddenly we saw something fall down from the top of girls hostel, adjacent to our hostel, which also made a noise like a water bottle or a heavy book falling on the ground! But, suddenly we saw something moving like a hand! All of us ran towards “it” to find a girl fallen flat on the ground!!!

I’m not going to disclose the identity of the super girl, don’t even ask! 😛 We called up the ambulance, again, and in the mean time we were asking her the reason for her intrepid, rather stupefied act. Let me tell you, only a bunch of us know the real story behind this! The version caretaker of the hostel and most of the hostel mates know is that her cell phone slipped from the window while she was talking and on her attempt to reach for it, even she slipped and landed on the ground from the second floor.

ya, I know its a dumb story to fool the caretaker! Here goes the real story.. The super girl returned from a party where she was drunk with his boyfriend who actually ditched her and told her not to contact him ever again. She wanted to meet him at that part of the night for which she had to come out of the hostel which she couldn’t from the main door and hence the shortcut. From the window to the sunshade and slowly sneak out using the pipes was the plan which eventually didn’t go well! She was boasting about her athleticism while crying in pain on the ground. All of us thought and even she was damn sure that her back is out of order for the rest of her life and in turn she will be of no use in the future! 😛 lol!

Meanwhile the ambulance arrived and guess what she got up slowly and I was sure she didn’t hurt her back. And steadily she stood on the ground which showed me that even her legs were also fine! The attender pulled out the stretcher only to find the girl open the front door to sit beside the driver! lol! My friends were so sure she hurt herself and it was the drinks that made her feel painless! I was right after the medical reports came out. She is all fine except for a sprain on her right hand. Miraculous escape indeed.

A quite party on Saturday night followed by a movie on Sunday. Nothing can overshadow the 16th night ‘cus when we were dull and were waiting for something to happen, it really did!

Party Time
Time to write something about my last weekend! We had a look at the pubs around MIT here in Manipal. There are few around like Dee Tee, Sky Lounge, Blue Waters, Down Town, etc. Well we had no clue about any of them to choose where we party. Just randomly we selected Down Town and what a great decision it turned out to be!

It was Saturday night and what a great time to party. Our internal exams actually got postponed which was scheduled to the coming Thursday so we thought to just go out and freak! We were six of us – all guys – ya I know stag entry, but it was fun nevertheless! We obviously got no table and well who wanted it! lol! We got place to sit, ordered our drinks and were listening to the rock music which was being played and the TV was showing some boring bolly song in channel V.

Everything was normal until they put on ‘System of a down – Toxicity’ song with its video in the TV. The whole place got alive. My friend finished his beer bottoms up! Later, ESPN was turned on and the match preview of Manchester United and Arsenal was underway. It couldn’t get better than this! All of us were cheering for Man U – “come on Man U” – except one guy who was unfortunately Arsenal fan. lol. He had his laugh when the score read 0-1 after the first half.

All of us were out of our mind by that time because of the drinks. We just kept ordering one after the other! We were literally drinking like a Fish! lol! We were dancing to the rock music. Though we didn’t know it, we were singing! And Manchester in the end won the game as it does always! The perfect end to a great weekend party night!

Sadly, All good things come to an end! But, an other weekend, an other place, you may never know! lol!
