This place amazes me everyday…u probably are thinking that what kind of starter is that. But that’s TRUE. As crazy as the following may sound…all the facts are true and accurate. This is a day from the life of a placed, fourth year, CSe guy who has never had a relationship\date\fling yet. So the topsy-turning turmoil enters his life on a dazzling Sunday night…not at DT, OB, or Big Boss but at his room where he was just back from a friends birthday party (one of the very few he attended in past four years) and just like every other MITian he was frustrated with ION but he was fortunate that night. So he was chatting on WhatsApp with this girl he had met a few weeks back through a common friend. Eventually, both tired of chatting, the guy called her up at around midnight and was ok uptill 2am until his roommate got disturbed and “the guy” had to move out to the corridors and met a cat with its dinner(mouse) in its mouth. They kept talking random stuff like relatives, accidents, transfers etc. and they were on til one of their mobile got discharged. Then he went back to the room and they chatted on Facebook till 5. In the meanwhile the girl asked if he liked him and as always happens he said yes (with #RightNow) and the whole situation got awkward but the boy did pretty good and the girl supported him perfectly to get the conversation back online. Then a call was made and guess what…he asked her out to end point at that instant and even after persuasion she refused. But this guy is pretty serious about what he says and sometimes takes mad decisions. So he went ahead with the plan of going to End Point and he made it in time for the sunrise which never really happened that day. 🙂
On the way it was completely dark and he even got an auto whose driver lectured him on how changed the life of a few students by telling them to study in the morning. Lol
As he reached the end, the daylight started slowly breezing out with an ooze. The aura now consists of peace, duck-quacks, the soft chimes of devotional music coming from a distant temple, the tip-tip sound of falling droplets, the coo-coo of the birds and the clouds encapsulating his silent chamber. As he types this letter he keeps a track of time to make it to class in time along with the various worries including seminar (ppt + report), industrial training report, etc. Also he introspects himself and the clouds in his life seems dissolving just like the place starts settling its dew. He also wanders about what he had done in past four years and is enjoying his life(And the thought of that girl keeps peeping in). Afraid of a distant dense cloud and the white clouds slowly moving toward him which has already engulfed the complete valley, he plans to make a move, out of End Point and attend his classes but he needs to have breakfast first.
And the whole purpose of this article was to explain that Manipal has plains, plateau,valley, river, lake, delta, beach, shawrma, temples, pubs, discs, library, lecture halls and specially the category which include students from engg. medical, jwellery\hotel management just like the feelings one have and you can always find peace in this crowded city of Manipal to blow off your steam. 🙂
