2nd year..." m sorry STUDIES" and ohh yes - "ol hail the ENJOYMENT"

After a long vacation of two months  our university reopend and I was in the 2nd year with a pile of backlogs crowning my head. 

There was a drastic change in everybody around me. Every one was worried about their looks, and the reason being fresh admission of the JUNIORS.  Some were looking to approach them with a smile first and some were eagerly waiting to propose them in the first meet instead. And one of them was Mr. Chao. He was in love. His Dream Lady was our junior. I somehow never understood why I always got reminded of kangaroos when she walked. I still wonder why.
         ‘ In mechanics of motion, we have grasshopper, robert & straight line motion,’ our Kinematics sir was busy explaining the unit to the first 3 benches. Some were busy texting to their girl friends...wooops some boys had boy friends too. They were so experts that they don’t even bother to look at the keypad while typing. Had itbeen that LPU introduced a new way of answering the exams by texting, then they would have all finish the semester end ETE exams in just an hour with the highly perfected texting speed of theirs.

  We occupied our last bench and were laughing our asses off. The reason was Chao. He proposed his "so called" Dream Lady and the junior girl disposed. We laughed even harder when Chao made faces. That kangaroo had kicked my friend on his heart. His face showd the sign of rejection. Poor fellow. He tried his best to hide this matter but in college you cant hide anything. 

            I always tried to find an answer why girls answer ‘NO’ (Spontaneously) when a guy approaches her. Why don’t they think for a minute. Does ‘I love you’ sound like ‘ Can I have your both kidneys’ for girls or the answer ‘NO’ is their birthright ? Some boys in my class dared to propose my class girls. Some boys were lucky, they got the answer ‘no’. And some unlucky boys got answer ‘yes’. May their soul rest in peace.

   This reminded me of my love. I got betrayed by my  first girlfriend. Since then I kept myself away from girls. hmm… past is past. Time has passed now. We finished our mid exams, our lab internals. And our main exams schedule and all in one released at same time.
          By the end of 2nd year I have learned,
i)                   I learnt to say three very imp words for life:-
* Yes sir.
* Ok sir.
* I'll Just Do That sir.
ii)                Voice modulation during attendance time.
iii)              I learnt to:-
* Face Mondays.
* Fight For 5 Days.
* Wait For the Weekend.
iv)              I Never Believed In Luck But Engineering made me to believe when i saw my marks.

Wt if I'll miss HER or I olready missed her for 132 hours.

I placed my shoes in the shoe stand outside and entered my home. My roomie looked at me with a disbelief. I left in the morning to the temple with a friend. He made me visit each and every temple located around 8 kilometer radius. My forehead was covered by various types of vermilions. My legs were paining after making hundreds of rounds around the idols. I needed to be dead asleep till; i find my self totally recharged. My roomie started laughing looking at my attire. Am a atheist with vermilion on my forehead. I dumped 8 half broken coconuts on the table and left to my room. i slept for 14 hours.

I woke up  next day and attended my class. This time I was given the drawing of crankshaft, cam shaft. Am sure in next few days, I will be asked to draw total parts of car. I came back home after my class.

Anshul (roomie) was busy with his eyes stuck on The Hindu . I was in the kitchen. And Anshul  went in his room with a heap of books. His exams were nearing. I changed myself and came out for a casual chat. After you finish your studies, no you cant have a casual chat with your parents (they called me up).

‘ There are internship openings in B*EL. Have you applied for it.’

‘No, I will do it. I need to get the form,’ I said surfing tv channels.

‘I brought a form, fill it and submit it online tomorrow. Check your email, I've emailed you the required documents.

I hanged the cell pfone in order to avoid further discussion about my job. I logged into gmail. Ninja's status was “ in meeting leave a msg at my desk”. I flipped the form, I filled it and kept aside. For the next few hours, I kept busy drawing random engine parts. After that watched a movie to kill time. Just before the climax, a msg popped up.

‘ hey hi, just came from meeting. The clients are horrible. Need to spoon feed them everything.

‘hmm.. that’s what your are paid for,’ I said to irritate her more.

‘apart from pay, I manage to get some awards for my work as well'-said she. 'Today I got Associate Of The Month award, Bubu'-added she.

‘wow congrats,’

‘not only award, appraisal is also on the way,’ she said with a pose,’

‘woww congrats, so you owe me 2 treats,’

‘wait, I have another last one for you… u knw frm today i erased my past pics and memories cmpltly frm my lappy,’ she said in conclusive tone.

‘this is a great news. So total 3 treats’ I said in delight.

‘This is just because of you. I owe u a lottt. Every one is happy now. Even my parents are glad to see me happy. This is just because of you.,’

‘Hey, don’t be so emotional. I just stood beside you. Its you who gave your best in everything.’

‘ You are so down to earth. This Is what I love in you,’

‘you are welcome,’

my friends has planned a trip to Dalhousie. I want you to join us. The trip is for 5 days and it would be fun if u too join us,’

‘no I said instantly,’ a trip with her friends that too with girls. No way. I would prefer going to Mars than going out with girls.

‘ yeah I expected this answer. I know you are scared of girls but I will be with you so no need to panic. She said trying to convince me. but I was adamant.

The next day she left for her trip. I bid her bye. I left for my class. Engineering subjects can give you best ever hangover when compared to alcohol.  In addition to it, my dad satsang on my career gave me mental trauma. Days were too boring. No Ninja no chat. No power during day time. ( in Punjab we celebrate “Earth hour” for every 4 hours a day). 



After 132 hours, she was back online.

“hi how are you. I missed you a lot” these were her first words after 132 hours. Atlast I have a girl who misses my company.

“I too missed u a lot. It was like survival in desert with out having a talk with you.,’ I opened up.

Bubu no need to worry now am back,”

“ so how was your trip”

“ was good. the climate was too good. we enjoyed a lot”

“ so what else”

“ I got a call from a company. I got short listed for a job”

“ oh that’s great so when is the interview”

“ I have a final telephonic round. And job posting is in Pune”

Her last word took away my smile. Soon she's  gonna leave.

“ oh ya congrats. And all the best ok I have some work you carry on,’ I lied to her.

I took off my headset and started thinking why am I feeling that I will be missing something. Wait am I over reacting? What If she gets a job. If she makes it, that means no mid night chats, no more fun to be precise. In that godly hour I was fighting with my conscience when the whole world slept. In heart I was praying that she should get job. The next moment I prayed she should fail in the last round.
