The biggest regret i have regarding the batch trip is not that i was a part of it, but the things it made me miss out upon. I was ready to sacrifice my weekly dose of “News on the loose” but i was surely not ready to miss out upon two back to back man of the match performances by AB de Villiers. But as it turned out, de Villiers not only delivered perfect play on the pitch but also managed to send me a feeling of regret via post (why post?, there was no cellular network in the distant hills) .
I btw brought up AB only because i was afraid you would die under the load of the statistical debris of what is called Sachin without even knowing the name of this exciting talent.
Moving on, it’s been quite long since the new sem has begun and it has taken me all this while to select a proper elective for myself. I have so far actively participated in all the three (or two, depends on the way you look) add/drop online routines. What this active participation meant that i have had the opportunity to jump courses at will after a test period of one week (much like Barney’s lemon law). Anyway these are the courses which i tried as an elective (read alternative).
1) Molecular Architecture:- After reading the generously prolonged over view, i decided to opt for this course even though there were only 5 precedents. But after turning up for the lecture, i was pleasantly distraught to see that there were only 3 of us. The next time around there were only 2 of us and i decided to give the course a cold finger* myself.
2) Religion and culture and ………(i don’t know):- There were 120 of us and i somehow managed to miss both of the classes held during our week long association.
3) Read on a bit more
In came a mail, preceding the D-day saying that only 75 members could be enrolled for the afore mentioned course and also that Molecular Architecture had passed away with 10 members on board. Having seen the growth control program, i decided to jump the religion plank as i had already run out of half the ammunition*. So i opted for English Literature which at present stands afloat with a bench strength of 19.
I am yet to attend a class of this course, so we will have to wait and see how it goes.
A guide to the above post:-
Cold finger-> a pun on cold shoulder subject to the meaning of pun as i am myself not sure what a pun means.
Ammunition-> We have only 4 reprievals per sem and i had already utilized 2 in the first week itself.
The turn out for the previous post was far more than it actually deserved. It was kind of a ‘masala’ post but this one here is certainly better than the previous one. So i shall wait and watch out for this one’s reception at the blog-office.
I can’t even begin to comprehend how i got mixed up with “the week that wasn’t” and “news on the loose”. Cyrus doesn’t even have a chance against Vir Das.
