Time: 1:30 PM
Place: A small shaded patch under a tree, in front of GH.
(Me and sashidhar are five minutes into a conversation)
Me: So Sashidhar, where are you going right now? Lab, I suppose?
Sashi (with complete sincerity): Man, I was going to the lab, but as I started talking to y0u, I no longer feel like going to the lab and working again. I just want to go to the hostel and relaaaaxx. Chal let’s walk to the OBH, na…
Me: (Needless to say, speechless. With a five inches wider chest.)
Wow! The aura of vellapanti around me is so strong that its five minutes’ rub-off is enough to put even CVITians off their work. And I have to live with it, 24/7. I just hope someone up there is looking after me…
