Main Aisa Kyun Hoon?


After studying so ‘hard’ and giving my H.S.C. exams I finally thought that I was a free bird. But what I did not know was that there were some devilish plans in store for me. The results were out soon and then we friends decided to take a plunge in the dangerous ocean called Engineering. You know what inspired us to do that. Bollywood movies!!!! Yup it's true… I can vividly remember each typical Hindi blockbuster where every Hero's mother says “Mera Beta Bada Hoke Engineer Banega! That was it ...We thought that if an Engineer is so much in demand then we should grab this opportunity with both our hands.

But then I had heard that passing Engineering exams was no easy task. Scoring 40 out of 100 is considered like taming a wild horse. I thought that if I could score 85+ in H.S.C …. Scoring 40 was no big deal. Poor ME!!! I was hallucinating.

So here I was standing in the long serpentine queues at the V.J.T.I campus. I was not the only fool. There were many. After submitting various forms… waiting for 3 long months… finally I got a seat in a college in Dombivli. Don’t bother to ask me the name of the college. You must have not heard it coz even I was hearing it for the first time.

I was elated after getting a seat in this college… Anyone will be happy to get a seat when 50% seats are reserved for OBC quota, 30% Girls quota and the remaining 5% for the NRI’s. So what if the college was located in the most inaccessible place of a village...

Going to college each day was like a tough Military Exercise. I had to cover an hour journey by bus, then 15 mins journey by train, then another 10 mins auto rickshaw ride and there it was….No not the college… It was still another 10 min walk away... I used all the modes of transport to get to the college... If my college had a Helipad I would have used the Air transport too....

The 10 min walk was the toughest part of the journey during the monsoons… We had to battle our way through muddy rivers… the dirt splashing bikes… the human waste… Puddle
And if you finally managed to make it… people would ask you, “Yeh Naya Rang Kaunsa Hai??”… So finally you could see all the students wearing brown. It was either Natural brown or Kichad brown…

And that is not all... After the Dandi March... we would be subjected to ultimate torture... ... We had to sit through the lectures of some of the most amazing professors in the college... This caused hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in mental power...

Issi Liye Main Aisa Hoon!!! ...
