Boredom, Bunks and Business Plans…

Looks like this is going to turn into a fortnightly series…well better get started then.

As you might have guessed, the last two weeks were full of boredom and lots of bunks. Boredom, because I personally can’t handle a routine. I need to have a change every now and then else I just go crazy [You can ask any of the fellow writers here, they know it pretty well]. So, I went for the only known way of changing your life in college, bunks. Every day, our group of around 10-15 guys would skip the last class [which was just a TUT] and play cricket [not my game, but the only option available in MAIT], which is in fact time well spent. After a couple of days, we started playing with some first year students [who looked like super-seniors] from BBA [our college is actually a campus, comprising MAIT and Maharaja Agrasen Institute of Management Sciences] , who weren’t exactly good at it. But something made them believe that they are better than us and thus resulted in a bet. After losing two times in a row, the BBA-wale started acting up, and that was the end of our mini-series with them.

Now, playing cricket everyday too became a sort of routine, so, as though god had heard my plea, a workshop was organized by NEN (National Entrepreneurship Network) in MAIT. There, we were divided into groups and asked to develop and present a business-plan. We came up with a common but slightly innovative plan. Ours was a housing society [like the hundreds out there], but we had decided to give it a twist by adding the small feature of demolishing existing 1-2 storey structures and building an apartment complex in their place[with the tagline “NO SPACE FOR HORIZONTAL EXPANSION, SO GO VERTICAL]. But the judge thought that a mobile smoking vehicle [to replace the nukkar wala panwadi (those were his exact words)], was better and was awarded the first prize. There were a lot more weird ideas, but they don’t even deserve a mention.

On re-reading this post, it doesn’t seem that good to me, but that happens whenever I am listening to some real good music [read METALLICA], so next time I’ll make a point to write it in absolute silence…till then…see ya!!
