"I lost my dream!"
"Ah.. I've got other work to do! You getting up or what? I lost yesterday's sleep already. Now don't make me mad."
"But it was some nice dream.."
I didn't make much progress even after 5 minutes.
"It's 6.00". The voice again. It's mom.
My eyes opened wide as if I got a shock. '6.00' was the word. My body got up. It is so. Very automated. I don't even have to think; you give the command, and it works like a pre-programmed robot. My legs walked to the table. My hands grabbed the toothbrush. My mouth worked in co ordination. Everything happened in darkness.
After a while, visuals slowly loaded into my eyes. Brain has booted up. I scanned around. Oh! I've been sitting on this chair. I loaded the last day's log files..
12.30 Went to bed - nah!
12.00 Chat with choco - nah!
11.30 Finished watching Death Race - nah!
12.29 Started some download - datzit!
I rushed to the computer. Download 10%(for the whole night!) :( I felt like crap.
7.00 am .. or exactly 6.57.15 am
I have some 3 minutes to get out and get to the bus stop. Or I miss the bus. And I never wanted to miss the bus.
I took a picture of my watch.
I grabbed the coins left on the dining table. I managed to get the bag in the run.
I jumped out of my home. And it was all wind. I flew to the bus stop! The houses, trees, cats everything in my neighborhood flew back from my eyes. I was in a swift. I wondered how I am running this fast! I felt like some character in an English movie, being portrayed as a busy one, running around from the start of their day(Of course you can see a movie beginning like that once in a while. I love 'em for the reason they're really energetic and motivates me to do things in a quick manner). And in the mean time this thought passed my mind.."I'll blog about this day!":).
I reached the bus stop. At the very moment the bus came in. I dashed across the road(dodging two speeding cars!). I got in before I couldn't even think(Again! The wonders of biological automation of daily actions. The human body is amazing. You're awesome, mother nature!).
A college life
I reached the next stop. Now the next bus was starting up. I continued the run(this time I dodged some 3 buses eager to run over me!). Finally I was inside. A long journey follows. I felt sleepy thinking of the long ol' routes to be traveled.
I opened a notebook(getting studious? me? can I get a mirror?!). The bus stopped at a closed railway crossing. The song being played in the bus reached its high. Oh! Old hindi classics.. "Cheese bhadi hai mast mast hai..". I counted the train's compartments. There were 19 of them including the engine!^_^
There goes.. I reached stop no:3. Here our college bus comes in and pick up all the students to the final destination. Getting inside the college bus is an adventure! It's an engineering college. There are students from 1st years to the final years. People over 18. Executive and neat. If you are thinking so you are totally wrong! Watch for the college bus. As it slows down people rush over to the only two doors available. It's wild. People who are placed in Infosys and all hang by the door and pulls down the 1st years. Many of the times, it happens that everyone get some seat. Still we love the adventure :D. Sometimes it can be dangerous as well. Me, being one of the (proud)members who gets in during the 1st 15 seconds, has got injuries from cuts to hurt bones to nearly knocked off tooth. If someone falls down, he's dead. Same for any pedestrian who innocently walks into the scene when the college bus is coming! And the drivers provide even more entertainment. They occasionally stop much backward, or much forward and at times, get much to the roadsides so that we have to jump away to save our lives!. Things get all juicy during rain when there forms a large mud pool, and the bus always stops in front of it. Imagine!:D
And now to the college. It's a boring place after all. Not really.. the campus is great, the people are wonderful. But I hate politics and daily journeys. There's always an inner call from home once you get there!
In the first 3 hours I switched between 3 places in the classroom. A secret information regarding the celebration of cleaning-day in the afternoon session got leaked. I jumped out of college. That's it! :)
Free as in free beer
We have student concession in bus fair. It costs Rs.1.50, Rs.2, 50ps respectively for my three stage trip back home. And what I've been talking about is that today I did this trip completely free!!.
Okey, here's what happened.
I got in the first bus. Dissolved in some music of Delhi-6. I went all the way and after getting out I checked my pocket to see the 2 rupee coin smiling at me! :) Now to the second bus.. and amazingly it happened all the same(why nobody asks me for ticket?!). Pardon me; I wasn't even thinking about the money during the journey. And now the last bus. Okey, now I was fully conscious of the 50ps. Then I got evil. The little red devil whispered in my ears.."This will be fun! You are on a record!". I moved to the backside crowd in the bus. A 10 minutes.. there's my initial stop.. and I'm outta here! And it went all fine. I did a free trip!. You'll tell it's 1.5 + 2 + .5 = 4.. but remember it's a 30+ km distance!
In the evening I watched Troy. I had this screenshot from Death Race..
And how do they know that?!
And now I am sleepy. Let me sleep.
Thanks for wasting your time on this! The purpose is fulfilled!! :D
