playing tic tac toe


Last week in college, Monday to be exact , a guy , 3rd year mech. student met with an accident … it was really bad.. Our Bus passed it but i was on the other side and couldnt see him bleeding.. by the time he was taken to the Manipal hospital( nearest hospital to deal with such accidents??? well it was their ambulance which took him), he died . we came to know that by the 2 nd hr .. by which the rest of the classes for the day had anyway been cancelled.. well soon the rest of the college had the day off.. there was a condolence service and everything.. but the Mech students werent happy with the way the college had handed the entire affair..so by that night smses were flying  to everyone to protest tomorrow. so there was a protest not that well organised but it did keep us away from classes. the seniors wore black( we people are still in uniforms!!! 😦 ) they had a list of demands like, free education for the dead guy’s sister , an emergency trauma centre at college , better equipped ambulance and changing the college bus drivers for not stopping to help the guy. at the end of the day the college okayed their demands and we could finally go home. the press covered this , both newspaper and tv. me got a few pics myself.. that was history .. feels good to be a part of it 🙂

ok so now from 31st my internals start and end on the 3rd. Incidently Mangalore’s first Battle of the bands starts at 4:30 onwards at nearby St. Josephs engineering college. so that means if we have to make it there we gotta rush home from college. then hurry of the Josephs which is situated slightly on the outskirts of the city. not sure about anything right now since our exams end at 2 and its a 1.5 hr journey home from college.

ok so since my friends bands are gonna play i was asking about it with them.. seems every band gets about 30 minutes to perform .. so my friend Claud is busy practising with his band even though they got their semester exams going on now. they seem to be practising 8 songs ( if time permits) thing is with sound check and all the list is bound to shorten to about 4. last time at KREC ‘s Incident , i waited more than 1 hr for the soundcheck to get over.. i had to return home at about 9 so didnt get to hear any good stuff because of that 😦
