B. We love chick flicks
C. Anything is better than attending lectures.
D. It's written.
The 17th of February 2009 was an extremely funny day. Rohit and I didn't want to attend the 10am lecture. So the two of us went to the one place we never have enough of.... THE CANTEEN! We spent, I won't say wasted one hour in the canteen. Usually our topic of discussion ranges anywhere from Superstar Rajnikant to the pathetic state of the city roads. That day I guess we were talking about our most favourite song, "Mile sur mera tumhara..."
It was 10.30am and Rohit said, he did not want to attend the Illumination lecture, and I looked at Rohit and said," Dude, lets watch Stoneman murders. Its a tuesday as well. Nothing can be better than this. Its an omen." Rohit was delighted to hear that. And Deepak entered the canteen at the same time. As soon as Deepak came in, we said, "Deepu, chal." "Where?", he asked us with a weird expression on his face which meant he was extremely confused. "Let's watch a movie", we said. He shrugged and said,"Okay!" And I ran to the library to check the newspaper for the movie timings and there it was. I could see it at middle of the corridor. Everything got into slow motion like Max Payne as I was heading towards the paper. But before I could reach there, some cursed girl came and started reading it. And as I was trying to catch a glimpse of the movie section, she didn't give me a chance to have a look at what I wanted to see. So I called the one who transcends the bounds of time and space - Salil Sabade. I asked him to check the timings of Stoneman murders and let me know. But he called me back and told me that Stoneman murders was not running in Fame Adlabs. So I thought there was no point in going to some other place because only Fame's got one ticket pe one ticket free on tuesdays. So I asked him which other movie was running at Fame. "He's just not that into you", came the reply from the other end. I went running to Deepu and Rohit and told them that the movie was our only hope and the only path that bypasses boredom. But there was a tiny twist in the story. You don't get 50% off on the ticket, but a ticket free on purchase of a ticket on vodafone tuesdays at Fame Adlabs. We were 3 of us. Both Rohit and Deeps have vodafone sim cards. Which meant we would need one more person. And since Divyanshu was out of town, we didn't know whom to call. Amidst the dilemma, Snehali came like an angel sent by God and joined our quest. She also has a vodafone sim. But wait! There is another twist. Snehali did not want to be the only girl in the group. So she called Noopur and Taha. But Noopur said that only she could make it. Which means twist no.3. We were 5. Odd again! So instead of panicking, Rohit called Parinita. But Pari was busy and could not attend to the call. So Rohit and Deepak went in a rick to book the tickets as I waited for Noopur with Snehali. As I was waiting for Noopur, I got a call from Pari saying that even she was coming and she had already informed Rohit. I was glad that the tickets would get evenly distributed. So I let Snehali and Noopur go ahead and waited for Pari. Now comes twist no. 4. Rohit now calls me up and says that even Aditi is coming for the movie. Now we were 7 and 7 is an odd number. That was the first day I asked myself why odd numbers existed. Rohit asked me not to worry and things would be fine. So Pari and I took a rick and reached Fame. Deeps was in the line. And some kind lady with one offer coupon and no partner offered us the extra ticket, though Deepak wouldn't agree she was kind. Anyways, may God bless that lady and may she always help odd numbered groups by never having a partner in her entire life. We finally had 7 tickets and we were 7 people. Absolutely no na-insaafi. And after this we did what we had paid for. We watched the movie.
I must confess that I really liked the movie. It was better than most of the Mega flop Bollywood movies I have seen in 2009. And do you want to know what did we did after the movie? We went to the one place we never have enough of... THE CANTEEN!

I have put up a theory as to why she is so expressionless. I think she is the daughter of Gaia (the spirit of the earth). I think her feelings control the condition of nature. Maybe sun shines when she smiles, and it rains when tears flow out of her eyes. But I wonder what would happen if she laughed till tears flowed out of her eyes. I think now I know why Mumbai got flooded on 26th july. Maybe she doesn't emote herself to maintain the equilibrium in nature. So that humans, animals, plants and Salil live in harmony without hardships. I really hope this theory is true because I don't see any other reason as to why she feels nothing.
She is so boring that she can put any person to sleep in a jiffy. You don't believe me? Read the conversation below:
Sangeeta's daughter-Mom, mom, Do you know what a wonderful day I had at school today? I won the first prize in running race at school and I got first rank in the entire standard today. It was the best day of my life.
Sangeeta's daughter-Zzzzzz.... (snort).. zzz...

Look at the drawings here in this comic strip. They are so immature. Looks like a 5th or 6th standard artwork. But I like the way the story flows. So many things have been conveyed in such a small space. Just a few blocks of pictures have taken the story so much further. Don't forget to notice the expressions on the characters' faces. And can you believe this? Chacha Chaudhary had actually trained his horse to run to the police station when crackers were tied to its tail. Insane stuff man! I mean, I have heard of people having a hard time, training their kids and dogs. But this is a horse man! And how can Gabbar Singh be so stupid? He allows Chacha Chaudhary to tie crackers to the horse's tail just because he wants it to run. Chacha Chaudhary*; who is well known for his wit and presence of mind! For God's sake, its Gabbar Singh. The most feared villian in Indian film history. One single comic strip has stripped off Gabbar Singh of his fierce image. If you are a fan of Chacha Chaudhary, you might know that Gabbar Singh became Gobar Singh later. And why not? He deserves the name after what he allowed to happen to him in this comic strip. If you would ask any B.E. Electrical student, his/her view about Gabbar Singh after this comic strip, we would all unanimously say that Gabbar Singh haga!!! The funniest thing I noticed in this comic strip is the 5th block on the 3rd page. Here Chacha is asking the police to keep his 50 grand cheque ready. Do you realize, this is the amount that the government was rewarding to nab Gabbar Singh in Sholay? Remember Sambha saying "sardar, poore pachaas hazaar!"
*Chacha Chaudhary ka dimaag computer se bhi tez chalta hai.
