Entry: Of the week gone by Friday, May 07, 2004

Hi! How are you people doing? I am so sorry for my absence from my blog for quite sometime. Read on and you will understand the reason for my absence (however useless and senseless excuse it may appear to be :P)

Monday, 3rd May 2004

I had to get some documents attested by our not-so-dear headbitch of our school. I reached Birla High School at around 11.30 am. Now the whole street is generally crowded with cars and ‘young late morning walkers’. But today the street wore a deserted look. I wondered why? When I walked up to the gate of my school, the durwan (guard) sitting there lazily asked me:

D:“Kya hua?”
*What happened?*

Me: “Principal aayi hain kya?”
*Has the headbitch arrived yet?*

D: “Arre nahi. Aaj toh school bandh hain.”
*Today school is closed*

I am completely shocked. My sub-conscious mind takes me back to last evening’s (Sunday) conversation with dad. He told me that there was some kinda muslim holiday. Sheesh how could I forget that. I wasted 45 mins to travel the whole distance which meant I had deprived myself of 45 mins of the 24 hrs, which I could have utilised in sleeping or blog-hopping. Boo hoo. NO more time to waste.

“Driver warp me back to my place.”

And driver warps me back to home at a so called ‘fast’ speed of 35 km/h when the whole road was empty and bare. DUMB!!

Guide to key-terms:
Head Bitch- Principal.

Tuesday, 4th May 2004

Once again the ordeal continued. I went back to school to get my documents attested. I asked the jerk to pass the documents on to the principals.

J: “Hum nahi denge. Abhi mere jo jhar para hain. “
*No, I cant give the documents to her. I just got scolded by her.*

Me:” Tumhara kaam hi toh jhar khana. Tumhe aur kis baat ki paisa deta hain school wale*evil grin*
*That’s your work, to get scolded. What else do you think you get paid for*[*evil grin*]*

Jerk is still adamant. I give up finally as arguing with him wont help my cause. Neither would Taporigiri or Mamugiri. I submitted the documents with him and came back home.

“Driver warp me back to my place.”

This time I was lucky as he drove at a speed of 50km/h.DUMB!!

Guide to key terms:
Jerk- Peon out side principal’s office.

Wednesday, 5th May
The ordeal still continued. I went back to school to collect my documents. Principal was sitting in the auditorium and staring at some students performing on the stage. I think she was trying to understand what the students were doing; neither could I understand why the students were jumping on the stage wearing multi-coloured clothes and fake moustaches. So, the idea of an Annual Day function of a particular school is to make some students jump on the stage like primitive monkeys and force the other non-participating students to tolerate and cheer the performing students? While the prefects and monitors try to hush up the booing crowd?
Anyways, I got my documents finally attested. The jerk asked for some money. I gave him 10 bucks and came back to my car.

“Driver warp me back to my place”
I AM TOTALLY IRRITATED WITH MY DRIVER. HE DROVE THE CAR AT A WHOPPING, EYE POPPING, MIND BOGGLING, NERVE WRECKING, HEAD TOSSING speed of…..hold your breath, 25km/hr, even though I asked him twice to punch the accelerator which resulted in an increase of 15km/hr for about 120 seconds. DUMB!!!!!!!

And above all, my tuition sir came an hour early than his scheduled time.

Sir: Besi tara tari chole aasheni toh?
*Hope I didn’t arrive too early*

Me: Na na...%&*$&%&*$(*($&#$#&$&#^$&*^#$&
*No at all..... %&*$&%&*$(*($&#$#&$&#^$&*^#$&*

Thursday, 07 May 2004

Today I was supposed to submit the form along with the attested copies. Thus began my search for Alipur campus of Calcutta University. I searched high and low, Right and Left, Diagonally and parallel, in all directions, but in vain. Then a white donkey, sipping tea from an earthen pot, came to my rescue sporting black goggles, carrying a revolver. Yes, you are correct, a traffic sergeant.

So I arrived at my destined building. That building gave me a brief idea about the caves and destroyed buildings of the medieval age. It was a perfect archaeological site. It could develop a crack by a cat’s meow or a dog’s bark could bring it down. I took my each step cautiously as I advanced towards the room, on which was written..
“Submit forms here. Time ^^.30 am to 4.00pm”
*^^ wasn’t clear to me*

As soon as I entered the room, an air of laziness enveloped me. I had already started to feel that I needed to be among these lazy bums. I really want to be in here:P.
Cutting the crap out, as the post is getting out of hand and terribly boring to read as it is LONG.
The guy said that I needed my 12th admit card’s attested copy. *What the “4lettered word”*. I told him that it wasn’t mentioned anywhere in the brochure we had to submit that.
“No, it was here (there???). You go and see popaly” (*I think he missed the R’s, or the R’s were muted by the pan he was chewing)*
“Ok sir, I will get back the docs attested by Monday.”
To irritate him further I asked him about the last dates of submission and the room I am supposed to come again. Exam details and blah blah. I could hear he was irritated as he was shouting at the peon who brought him a non-working pen

Today is my mom’s birthday. I hoped that I could have a better son to her. I hope she always smiles and stop whining about my manners and other 100 things. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!!!!

And I dint make it to the IIT screening. I had no hope for it since I dint prepare for it like some other people mite have done( 2yrs of slogging) Best of luck to those who cleared it.

May 10, 2004   11:29 AM PDT

Here is the website of an Bengali daily http://www.anandabazar.com(its in bengali..so wont be of much help i guess)

They even have their branches in Mumbai,New delhi, chennai,bangalore,hyderabad,ahmedabad. If you are in anyone of the above cities..let me know so that I can look up for their contact numbers. I dont know how much helpful will this be, but this is the least thing i could do, as I dont have any contacts:(
Hope u will understand

May 10, 2004   11:12 AM PDT
Thanks anyway, CC. I'm afraid I don't know anyone in the Bengali dailies and don't even know enough Bengali to read their addresses/phone numbers if the same are mentioned on a website. Do you know anyone there?

Oh, the Anand Margi Sect recently lost a case in the Supremem Court and are no longer allowed to whirl swords and human skulls in their public processions....
May 10, 2004   10:52 AM PDT
Umm sorry ritu, but cant help u on this topic as I have no idea about the people you have mentioned over here. Sorry , really really sorry. But i will leave u a mail incase I find someone who can help you out. If you have any contacts over in here in local bengali dailies, they mite be able to help you out, or speaking to someone over there, might be of some use.
Sorry again :(

I need some help and information and was wondering if you could help me, or direct me to someone who might be able to help me. There is a news company interested in doing a few news bits in West Bengal. Two of these are in Clacutta itself: A man called Tapan Dey who can write/do calligraphy with both his hands and his feet.
The other is the girl in the Hoogly district who was married to a dog last year, to stave of bad luck.

And just out of curiousity, would we need to travel to Purulia to meet the Anand Margi sect people or could they be found in Kolkata too?

I am really hoping that you'd be able to help me out. Or at least direct me to someone who might be able to help me out.

This is my email: ritu@brightentheworld.org

Please let me know if you can think of something, or mail me if you want more information about the company/me.

May 9, 2004   07:26 PM PDT
Tan, let CC object if he wants to. Are you the spokes-person for this blog too?

Hey cc, am here from Meera's blog.
Don't let the IIT result stop you. There would be far more oppurtunities and instances in the years to come where you can prove yourself. Have faith , work hard and remain focussed.
My God, i sould like an uncle here,
whatever,.....its the truth.
Cheers buddy.
