I decided that there are certain happenings(read periods) in one’s life which lack specificity, yet need to be captured. I just can’t put today into any one category, but it was a great day just for the heck of it.
Had a chat with Karan and Daddu @ the coffee shop. I was actually a li’l bit peaved at the recent spate of ‘politics’ that’s being played in our batch over the’coveted’ post of felicity (Joint) co-ordinator(s).(Yeah, it wasn’t exactly very smart of Chand to use that word for the post in his mail). I was wondering with with this this kind of solidarity in the batch, whether or not we’ll be able to meet the sky-high standards for Felicity that our seniors have set.
But after spending some time with Maroo and Daddu at the dabba, I was really relaxed. They’re really committed towards making our Felicity a grand success, and I know(in fact we all do) from experience that if these two guys get together with a whole year in front of them, then nothing can stop our batch from coming together, and if that happens, then even sky is just the beginning. We can look at a bigger budget, greater celebrations, better participation, higher ethics and most important of all, greater enjoyment for one and all; we only need to come together.
It’s not very important, but I had some ideas, very novel ones, and I discussed them over with the two guys. They were very excited with the ideas, and the results we can possibly generate from them. Naturally, I’m happy that my ideas have found resonance with others and this’ll push me to think and act further. I guess everybody has ideas of their own, so there won’t be any dearth of ideas; we only need to implement them.
Meanwhile, Atul got an electric guitar. He’d been saving up for it for a whole year now. And the support he had from our friends was awesome. Vatasal has almost given up his acoustic guitar to Atul. Harsh and Scientist chipped in with money for the guitar. Prabudh went with Atul to buy the guitar, and also lent him some. Not worth mentioning, but even a pauper like me has some of his money in that guitar. We had a pretty good time later in the night, with KT showing us its features, and also playing some of our favourites on it. The guys’s a great guitarist, has excellent sense of rock music, and is a good teacher as well. He’s promised us the use of his guiatr processor and and amplifier whenever they’re free. Needless to say, We’re overwhelmed at this support our friends have given to us. I know everybody wants us to rock, and we promise we’ll play the guitars till our fingers bleed, and try our best to put up a good show every time we get to perform. And we will, for the whole college is with us.
As I write these posts, I’m being introduced, thanks to Soni, to the Indian rock bands, Zero and Parikrama. They’re completely awesome. I really did not know our countrymen played rock so well. Parikrama is kinda fusion, but Zero is to-the-bone rock, and that, too awesome rock. I think I’m in for some great time with these bands. Hope to find some more Indian rock. I even listened to the Insomnia songs. I think given some better recording facilities, they will sound great on their records, too.
I sign off here after a gr8 day, at 4:AM in the night. I dunno whether I’ll be able to wake up for tomorrow’s 8:30 class, but honestly, I don’t care. When minds are free, everybody comes together with great ideas, and life starts rocking. I hope the faculty gets to understand that some day.
PS1: Happy B’day to Khatri :).
PS2: ‘Wings of Fire’ is an awesome book, but I’m kinda bored of (auto)biographies now. Can somebody get me ‘Hobbit’ issued from the lib? I lost two of it’s books already, they won’t give me any now:(
ps3: Sashi, plz have a shave. Saket, plz plz take a bath!
