I swear there must be a dead lizard in this.I just got this tropicana orange juice from the office cafeteria n it tastes like some lizard committed suicide in the bowl this juice was prepared in.even the pack says " this is the closest you can get to what nature provides " .Looks like they did not rule out wildlife.im gonna tear it open , preserve the dead lizard in a can of formaldehyde , sue the tropicana guys and end up being a millionaire.
Anyways , the reason I am sitting here on a saturday , sipping orange juice (with the lizard not to be forgotten) is that we have got this IIM Calcutta freshers party just a couple of streets away this evening. And yesterday as I was lounging at home , I had this fabulous brainwave of coming a few hours early , grabbing some extra work at office ,before going over fr the party in the evening.
So I got to this place at 10 in the morning and have been whiling away time here since then. There was no other trainee save the IIM Kozhikode girl. Not that it helped.She anyways hates the sight of me and tries her best to avoid me.wat me worry.
The reason for our amazing chemistry :
IIM K girl : "Hmm..I have to go see my doctor this evening "
Me (with heartfelt concern): " Oh ,your daughter doesnt stay with you?".
IIM K girl : "Hmmph....I said DOCTOR."
Me (with heartfelt guilt): "Oh..im sorry..i heard daughter."
IIM K girl : " n you thought its possible ..".
Me (with heartfelt curiousity): " So it is .Isnt it ?".
IIm K girl : "Loser....Were you born that way ?"
Me : " Nah ! I actually was almost normal fr the first three years of my life but then a flowerpot fell right on my head n I have been this way since then."
Ok , I know i bungled up here.was too irritating for her.Im sorry.Infact , I dont wanna hurt or irritate anybody intentionally but then I dont like the way the world runs , too serious. My dad is another person who thinks I am way too useless , lazy and stupid for my age and education.
Dad : " Munnu ,u should behave in a refined and more formal manner , after all you are going to be a manager in some time."
Me (with a solemn nod): " Yea .I realise I have to be a little more formal.I am gonna take my bath in a neck-tie from now on."
Anyways , its 4 n the freshers party kicks off from 5. Cant believe its almost one year since I attended my freshers at the same venue.I guess I would just sit around today with some other IIM C guys , give some fundas about IIM Calcutta and its subjects , curriculum , lakes ,the ducks in the lakes, profs and other useless things fr a couple of hours , grab a bite and hop onto a bus to gurgaon at the end of it all.
Some questions which still stick in my mind from my freshers last year :
" Are the toilets indian or english at IIM Calcutta ?" ( It doesnt matter son , the world is a family , nationality doesnt matter).
" How do I get a room at the girl's hostel ?"(This was asked by me)
"How long are the beds over there ?" ( Helloooo....are you a basketball player?).
"Can we buy booze on campus ?" ( HIc..HIc..naughty boy).
"Do we have washer women in the hostels?" ( god , are you that desperate and frustrated ?!").
Looks like I am in for some fun this evening.
