Story

My first day at the campus

By manoj manduva

The Entry!

After being stuck in enormous traffic for hours, finally you manage to somehow find a blue colored board proclaiming 'IIT Bombay, Gyanaarth Praveshan, Sevarth Prasthanam' ... the non-existing main gate makes you question if this indeed is 'The Insti', but then, as the taxi enters the campus and a cool, not-so-humid hawa ka jhonka (breeze) goes past your head, you instantly realize that this place is the most beautiful place in the city!

The Hostel!

I used to have dreams about IITB hostels! They would be 7-8 storey buildings, which would be breathtakingly beautiful, posh and clean. The glasses would shine bright, the grass would be soft and green, the flood lights would make the hostel cricket ground glitter nice. But when the reality came before my shiny eyes, it was far far away from the dreams. The rooms were small. They looked like a Dharmshala( A place where pilgrims would stay) room, with bed bugs and mosquitoes everywhere. And you have a room-mate too. Shared bathrooms, 4 for a wing of 20. The badminton ground in front would be filled with mud, and would have no net. A big big disappointment it would be.

The People

While entering the insti, you would see students smoking cigarettes. Some would be having huge beards and clumsy hairs. People paying no attention to what they wear or how they look like. People swearing, a lot. Arrogant, aggressive, addicted-to-swear-every-two-seconds type, etc.There would be some other nerds who would barely notice you. Then you would find a senior whom they call your mentor. And you realize that there are good people around too! Your mom would wonder if you too would become the same in the coming years! :D

The profs! Some would start with congratulating you for clearing JEE, explaining the need for you to become good engineers, would advise you to avoid late night gaming and to attend classes... some others would ask your names, your aspirations and stuff. Then there would be some others who would simply start with their PPT's and would announce a tutorial quiz due tomorrow. A mixed bag.

The Mess!

You would have already heard so much about the mess food that your really would not expect anything. And the mess food won't taste too bad! In fact, your parents might like it very much, and would rejoice the fact that you can take unlimited amount of curd!

Overall, it would be a day filled with aspirations, fears, curiosity, disappointments, enthusiasm and all other mixed emotions!
