Banda Jitnaa simple... simple utna intro.The first person I have seen at HCU who has unexpectedly become a major importance in my life.
I still remember when did I first see him. He was with a Mustache ON and it was in GB hall. First person in the list on the admission day.
At that moment I never knew that I am probably gonna stay with him in a same hostel, same wing and mostly the same room. He was simple and sober right from the initial days and he still is. That is the best part of Sinha (Sinha ji as venu calls him). I call it destiny and destiny is the only thing which lets you meet people who are away million miles and once you meet them it is worth million lives of bonding. I, rite through the inner layers of my heart cherish the relation with Sinha for the forthcoming lives together. He is too sweet a dude to hang along with.
Sinha and me along with Venu and Noops have spent days and months together on the roads roaming HCU through its Length and Breadth. In the initial days we were in same wing and right from seeing each others faces at the Loo till Good Night wala pissing we used to see each other quite often. Later right from the second semester our bonding grew stronger.I have some words for him which I could not actually speak out because We've never come across such an occasion. But thanks to Blogger; I am very strongly inspired by Sinha. It was not something that he has preached me or taught me but an undercurrent process that had a strong impact on me. If I have transformed myself into a more matured kind of human being 'Yes' Sinha is a part of the change. The way he lives and experiences practicality is the best feature of him. Its rare that you predict what happens exactly to you in the next coming months/years as a result of what are you doing 'NOW'. Sinha has got that 'Khoobiyat'. He usually is a very calm and understanding friend/Son/person who often compromises to make people around him happy. This is one of the lessons I have learnt from him. He always stands for truth and one needs lot of guts to do so. Accept the FACT is the word..... may be you are wrong at times, may be you are supporting the wrong mob -ACCEPT it. Whatever it is: Life, Friend, Grade whatever it is..........
Ok enough of formal positive qualities, let me recollect some lingering memories with him. Sinha initially had a cycle and I had a scooty. I was sick driving beside him on the uphill road so.. I used to hold his right hand with my left hand and ride my scooty thus.. both of us reach hostels at same time at same momentum. I now, wish someone had really taken a pic of such a moment. It looks so Bollywood but that was one of the best moments I have experienced. The very group titled 'Family' has bagged lot of memories just because of his presence. The optimal rectangle seating arrangement( Rajesh and Venu in the front row followed by Me and Noopur for copying in exams) was his architecture. He is the one who saved our asses being burnt many times by the Faculty. Sinha learns all week and explains rest in few hours that we can actually go face the Goddamn minors/Majors and assignments/projects at HCU which are sure nightmares for students. He is yet another Dennis Ritchie - a complete leader of C who has understood and corrected my project in hours of time. Thanks for the B in Programming Methodology dude. I just find a drape of tear in my eyes whenever I remember the day when we dragged a Huge Dried tree for over a kilometer for the mid night campfire at the Open Dais.
There is a very big list of memories we shared together:
- Chai Dukaan at F Hostel,
- Mess card hamesha open Phir bhi dinner at GOPS,
- Shaam ko Honeywell se jaldi aake Chemistry Dept ke paas waala Mirchi khaana,
- Raat ke 2 baje tak gappe maarke tab sar phir ke Helipad tak gaadiyon pe ghoomnaa,
- Poore Bheege Bheege barish main Football finals at Gachibowli Stadium,
- Sukoon ke 3 baje raat maastaan bhai's fuming coffee,
- Vasundhra (Yet another unfogettable buddy) ko platina chalaate video lenaa....(again at some 2 am),
- Aadhi raat tak Ladies Hostel yaa Gops ke paas baith ke gaadi pe sonaa
- Last minute rush for the Coke for Vasundhra at 12 mid night( After she accepted ki woh mere pair padhengi..).
- Pyaas lage toh gup chup Bhoookh lage toh ganne kaa ras,
- Holi ke din ka recharge card wala incident and and and...............
- thousands of memories more. I am sure I can write a book compiling all these memories.
I have some how used my brain(I am not sure whether I have one??) to be a little creative and present him it. It is a collage of lot of photographs of him which I made it into a poster and packed in 9 layers... which included a Pepe jeans cloth on the top most layer. I am glad that he still preserves it with lot of care in his home.
