    Working hard... PARTYING HARDER - PART 1

    For the last one month or so the amount of work that I’ve been doing would over weigh the cumulative effort of my 5 months before that easily, but 4m wat I’ve learnt in the last few months I’ve stopped complaining.
    My biggest blunder in these last few weeks was on the 21st of Nov. 2k5, it wasn’t as if I screwed up with work, but worst than that, I missed an "order wat u want free of cost" invitation to the Hyatt. That was one of two days in the next 20 odd days that I had left office on time, the sudden offer came after office hours on that day, but since then I’ve more than just made up for dat loss.
    It started on a mundane Tuesday ( 6th Dec), after slogging it out in the office till 7 30 (usual chutti time is 5 10) I came out and smsed one of my colleague (FOSLA case) abt his beloved standing rgt behind me in the bus queue. Fortunately he was @ Aura in Hiranandani with 2 other guys from my unit, and in a few minutes I was there too. We let the aura surround us completely (with after effects visible the following day as well). With a special Karaoke night dat day it was even more special than the usual two hot Romanian babes sizzling the stage and the extremly good crowd of THE Hiranandani. The best part of the show was the grls singing on our request a couple of hindi songs in their thick accented voice.
    After a days rest I was out again on Thursday, this time I was heading towards Colaba, the heart of the city, finally after catching up with the guys who were already waiting for me, we landed up in Café Mondegar, the place was infested with firangis, (the Indians there were even better) we somehow managed to get a small table for 4. It was a day of 1sts for me, 1st time in Café Mondegar, followed by 1st time in Bade miyans (the famous Kebab shop where u’ll may find a person coming out of a limousine and an autoriksha wala both enjoying themselves). This was followed by my 1st evening walk @ the famous marine drive and then the 1st time at the heppest Mochas of them all, the one near Churchgate station.
    Again after a days break Saturday saw me in MIG club (near Sachin’s place, where he still plays cricket sometimes, atleast that’s wat I’ve heard). This time the occasion was Pan IIT meet, I was fashionably late and thank god for that, for those who had come on time had to relieve the painful memories of the boring lectures for almost 2 hours. It was a cocktail and dinner party and a total paissa wasool (many times over, for me)
    A set pattern was emerging in my life, u must’ve guessed one day off and then Monday I was back to the partying ways, this time thou it was not someplace new, but the tried and trusted (over and over again) totos (ab to wahan ke waiters bhi mujhe pehchanne lage hain). It was the ususal there, gr8 music and gr8 babes.

    P.S - for the uninitiated, FOSLA is Frustrated one sided lovers associtation

    I had Chilli-Paneer for dinner at Dreamland.
    Then went up to T&P Placement and saw the list of OTHER people's names on the board.
    Then we bitched about architecture department.
    Those have been my identical days (last 5) and will probably be so for the next few months...

    wanna trade places :) ?

    dont worry iyer, just a few more days and u'll be out of there,
    but i'm telling u kitna bhi gali de do tum kgp ko, once u get out of there u really miss the place, haan ek xtra saal thoda bore hota hoga, but still
    BOL for placements, abhi to khel suru hi hua hai, peechle baar to apne haal ka suruat main kya ganda haal tha, but we did catch up... tera bhi acha hi hoga :-)
