First Day at Amity

By Chowdapa

Just out of skool, i looked like the typical studious type of kid , yeah another word would be NERD, short hair , wearing specs , always ready with a smile, and having the ability to single handedly steer an interesting conversation into a boring intellectual one ..if anyone would tell me " check that girl out " , my response would be, "yeah, she makes very detailed notes in calculus class ", i entered college, geared up to face mean seniors, and Lo , no seniors , nothing ..well, thats coz i reached at around 8 in the morning, college starts at 9 30 ..

anyways, the freshers were directed to a classroom on the second floor..around 50 freshers were present in the class..i was sitting on the first row, just introducing myself and having general small talk wid d folks around, when i noticed the guy sitting behind me, was ridiculing a boy like crazy !! anything the "ridiculee" would say , the "riiculer" would come up with such a funny retort, people around just could'nt stop laughing!! the "ridiculer" was none other than the member of the gang , ravi kumar..he was my first friend in amity ..we instantly got along really well..

we were still seated in class , when a group of seniors, all built and rowdy looking ,entered the class, and shouted, directing their attention to a group of 3 girls " hey u three, follow us" ..there was such menace in their voice, half the class peed in their pants , the rest wanted to use the loo .. then another bunch of seniors came , and took away a group of juniors for ragging ..your mom must have told u stories about how the villagers used to make an offering to the monster, so it would not attack the village , blah blah ..well , we felt like we were being offered to the monster..but then, ravi had an idea..we both went to one corner and the wise ravi said " look , the seniors are on the first floor..they are coming to the second floor and ragging us ..lets do this ..lets go to the first floor , lets go to the floor of the seniors , and walk through , and act confident..if we act like a lion among lions , the lions would'nt notice " ..thats the first and last time i took his advice..we went to the first floor, and strode around , confidently , looking everyone in the eye ..some looked away, thinking we were THEIR seniors..but then, the problem was, we were'nt lions damn it , we were lambs ..and for how long could we keep the facade up was a gamble...either stay in class and get ragged for sure , or take a gamble and take ur chances at escape ..a guy came up to us and asked " which course .??" ..i did not say anything ..ravi said " MBA, 2nd year" .. buzzzz - wrongggg answer ..the guy said " come inside the class buddy .."
ravi retorted confidently " is that the way u talk to your senior??? dont u have any respect ?" ..the guy calmly looked back at us and said " there is no MBA course here ..come inside" he roared..shit ..we were supposed to be scared , but we actually couldnt stop smiling at our stupidity or bravado , watever u call it senior asked me , why the hell were we strolling around on their floor and i honestly told him the reason ....they all started laughing..the gabbar singh kinda laugh ...i said gabbar singh , coz i was made out to be "jai" , and ravi was basanti and we had to dance in front of the class, more seniors kept streaming in, cheering the performance ..i din't have the courage to tell basanti " inn kutton ke saamne mat nachna" , but i can live with that ..then, the song was changed to "babuji zara dheeere chalo " , the yana gupta wala item number , ravi and i had to alternate between singing the song , dancing like yana gupta and being the "bhains"(buffallo) in the song , moving our heads and using our hands as make believe horns ...the crowd was laughing so hard by now , some had tears in their eyes ..all said n done, it was fun... i bet sumthing like this MUST have happened when u were in college ..i would like to read about that and have a laugh at ur expense , just like u r laughing at mine ..
