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!

My first post from Manipal. I reached here on August 2 and things are going pretty good down here. Classes are going on great, busy with labs. Schedule is pretty hectic here. We got 6-day week with working hours from 8AM to 5PM for three days and till 12:30PM the remaining days.

The food in the Food Court is awesome but now kind of getting bored of the same old awesome food, lol! I joined the gym and am working out daily evening, just to keep myself in shape! I’m staying in the 3rd floor of 8th block in the MIT hostels and there is no lift. I am probably in the best floor you would want to be in this building because TV room is in the 5th floor which is closer than other floors below and we have TT table in this same floor, so no need to walk at all! I play till late night!

Weekends have been cool. I went to the End point. Its a valley view and was really great with the clouds in the same altitude to where we were standing. Another weekend for some shopping and a movie “kaminey” didn’t like it though.

Lately it has been raining here. From the last weekend its pouring for almost six days continuously until yesterday when finally the sun came out from under the clouds. Thank god ‘cus I even lost my umbrella. I hope the rainy season is done for this year and I needn’t have to buy another umbrella!

I will come up with some campus pics. Its 23:26hrs and I’m signing off. Gudnite!
