did i ever tell u people that my favourite season is summer??if i have, i'm withdrawing it NOW. uff man!!!!it's only late march, and Kolkata is becoming a hot air oven...

the bad thing about this summer is that we r not sweating anymore, but it seems that all the water from our body are evaporating...and our body fluids too.after getting down from the bus, i need to walk only for 5 minutes to get inside the baker laboratories building(our dept is in this very building!!!), but nowadays, the interior of my nostrills get so dried just by the time i crossed this path that i've to wash my face with water to regain some of the moisture...

and due to this scorching heat, I'm not going out of the building as long as i can..that day i went out for a courtesy visit to the canteen(our schedules doesn't allow us anything more) and i returned with a mild semi-flu. so I'm not going out to have my lunch, living only on the lunchboxes of my classmates and on some special days on mine too(don't know why, but mom makes lunch rarely these days)....imagine!!!!!!!!i'm almost fasting!!!!

and I dread to think what will happen in may and june(our exams are also scheduled then)!!!!!!!hey, got a nice excuse for the bad marks that i'm gonna get in the exam...

p.s.- somedays ago, i made some chicken kababs by roasting them in the flame. and now i'm feeling like a chicken being roasted everyday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The (un)Smart Card

I've always been a great fan of the metro railway, Kolkata. and so I was highly delighted at the news of metro launching the new smart card. it was suppossed to be launched at october,2005 and it finally launched on 25th January,2006.
I bought mine on 1st february.I picked one with 60 days validity with a balance of 253 rs for which I have to pay the authority 200 rs apart from the refundable 100 rs for a new card.

the whole month i used it and was very happy to do so.
then on march 6th or 7th, while coming back from college, I tried to use it but it was rejected. the authority said thaT THE VALIDITY HAS EXPIRED. IMAGINE!!! I HAD 6O DAYS VALIDITY AND THE VALIDITY HAS EXPIRED AFTER 30 DAYS!!!
I showed them some evidences proving that this can't happen as I have bought a card with 60 days validity...they seem to be understood and advised me to contact the station I bought it from..

so I went to Central metro station the next day. someone in the station master's room asked me to come the next day by 10 am and he said that the makers of smart card would be there and they would solve it in minutes.

so on 9th march I went there at morning and visit the station master;s room and meet the station masters. he asked me to submit an application writing about all these to the authority. and he said that I'd get the card after 7 days... so I did that and submitted my card with a balance of Rs. 125.

after 7days I contct them. they said it's not been fixed yet and asked me to come another day....and afer some more frustrating visit to the station and some equally frustrating phone calls today I got to know that it has finally narrived there.
I went there and collected it(not to mention that they were giving it away to someone else without checking his smart card no). and they recharged it and I saw that mine has a balance of Rs.120.(coz the new recharge has 120rs balance with 30 days validity and costs 100Rs. thank god, they didnt ask me to pay)

I asked them about the thing ...they said, they can't help it but they would ask the authority to do something....I told them some things( coldnot create a tantrum as they were already apologizing)...
so...the equation of my loss wold be"
5 rs balance+5 rs fr phone call in 2 days+1.25Rs for xerox(not to add the harrassment )=11.25Rs+the loyality and faith

I have only one more thing to say:

Fu*k bureaucracy!!!!

Holi Hain!!!

wishing u all a colourfull Holi, the festival of colours.
but for me, holi comes a day before the actual date. coz we play holi (or dol in bengali) in college on that day, and yesterday was not an exception...

(well, people, I think a little confession is necessary. in my 3 yrs of college, I played holi only nin the 1st yr. and then too, we got our half yearly exam papers!!the whole college was playing holi and was enjoying while we were being scolded by our HOD for our poor marks!!nevertheless, this year I enjoyed holi totally)
we had classes through out the day. and after the 1st class I went to canteen to have a look...and, i came back and with some of my classmates we went to the proff's room and request him to call off our remaining classes. and such a sweetheart he is, he actually did it.
and we started.

from class we wqent to canteen. started with abir, and soon started using water colours. and after that plan water. bucket and bottles full of water . everybody was splashing everyone. we were playing with people we even dnt know. but we know enogh of them.. they are presidencian. that bridges all the gap.

and someone told me ,'go, have the bhang!!' i went and have a sip after fighting with others to grab the bottle. and i thought what will happen with only a sip.
and after washing we were chatting in the canteen. suddenly, almost after 1 hour, I got the kick. and it seems that as if I was sleeping ...i was feeling drowsy and euphoriac. i was feeling like laughing, but I controled and started smiling...
my friends saw me and I told them that it's affecting...
and they were asking me to laugh. and me:'hahaha, dnt do this, hahahaha....plz stop...ho ho hahaha....I'll see u people..hahaha"
it was finally over when i woke up today morning...

anyway, with such a wonderful holi I atleast have a day in presi on which I enjoyed more in my MSc class than in my BSc class...
happy holi....
