Freshers' Day

So finally that day was arriving....the freshers' day...which each fresher looks forward to. I don't have any memory of my UG ( I guess I bunked the class that day :D). But then I remember my UG days only for the friends I got, nothing else. But in IIT, I had come with the determination that these 2 (hopefully!!!!!!) years I am going to make it my best. So I decided chalo y not do a skit that connects with all the students ( The thing is I used to wet my pants when I see a stage during my school days. So really had no idea how this is going to be :D). This way an idea came to my mind to do a comical skit based on the some of my friends in my class. So I called up Aadi and told him whether he is fine and can do a part. He said fine. So got 1 guy. Have to get one more. People may think what's the problem of getting a guy from a batch of 90+. Dude....this is mtech 08 batch. Finally Vishal also agreed for doing a part. I also somehow managed to get an "actress", Jayalakshmi, also to play the female characters.

Thus the "team" was formed. We just had one hour or so to practise as we had extra classes ( I will kill the guy who introduced this concept of extra classes) today, which was also a saturday (supposedly a holiday ). But after practising for some time, the others started losing interest
. They were not sure people will feel anything comical about this. After sometime, we decided to drop the idea. So for the freshers party, from Mtech1 , we had 2 songs by girls ( Shubangi aggarwal and Riturekha Sen (they were such sweet songs, though don't ask me what songs they were...I was hearing it for the first time ), Poems by anup Kulkarni (he wrote them :) and they were awesome) and then a mixture of new and old songs by our 3 dudes Ajitav, Prasanth Borole and Saurabh Sohoney ( they had a great mixture of old,new,romantic,fast numbers)).

So the program finally started. according to the schedule, 1st Btechs show their programs, followed by the Mtechs. The Btech guys had a variety of programs in their kitty...2 good skits, 2 dances, variety of songs, good poems, a comical adaptation of ramayana...So when compared to all these, I thought mtech guys paled a bit in comparision, though whatever we performed were awesome. But I thought we should contribute more. So when the program was going to end, I informed my CR that I want to do the skit myself. i don't know how I became so thick skinned at that moment, but something told me to go and just do it. And then my show began. I have given below what I presented, but the actual fun was in actually enacting it out than just reading it. Still I am producing below what I did.

The scene was one person each from our batch will enter a room to talk with a guy sitting inside the room. We will consider the guy to be the registrar. We will address him as Reg.

Aaditya Joshi : Walk in

Reg : Hey why are you crying, what happened, don't worry we are all here to help you na. i know you will be missing your parents and others, but still..it will be fine. don't worry.

Aadi : Abee who's crying.

Reg : ( Looking closely onto his face) acha shakal hi aisa hei kya

Chandan Iyer walks in

Chandan : Sir, I have a doubt to ask. How many courses are there for Mtech.

Reg : Don't worry my boy..u have lots of courses to choose from...around 30 (looking very proud as if he teaches all the courses )

Chandan : (Looks disappointed) Oyee sirf 30??? Btech ke liye around 60 hei,phir bhi Mtech ke liye 30????(After thinking for sometime...)Lagtha hei PhD courses bhi lena padega mere ko

Reg : ( a fly goes into his mouth which was wide opened with shock)

Next Neha Jain walks in

Neha : Hey hi, good day eh?

Reg : Yeah sure

Neha : I am from Indore..Where are you from

Reg : O great, I am from Nagpur

Neha : What..You are from nagpur..U r not from indore?How can anyone be not from indore...I am a die hard Indorian..and u r from Nagpur...What bigger crime can happen..tumhei tho goli se udana chahiye

Reg : Watches her walk off and then checks his entire body to make sure she hasn't cut of any of his body parts for the great crime of not being from Indore.Whew lucky escape.

Next Rishi Chander walks in

Rishi (talking to his friend as he walks in ) : Machine vision (name of a Computer science course) is the future. If you don't know machine vision, then you have no vision. I have seen machine vision labs in IIT delhi and IIT kharagpur and by induction theory I proved that IIT bombay should also have one. (then Rishi sees the Reg). He raises his hand..."Sir I have a doubt"

Reg : Yeah tell me...

Rishi : Where is the bathroom...

Next Devshree Sane walks in

Dev : Sir, is there any boat clubs in IITB

Reg : No

Dev : (Looking shocked and covering her mouth)..Oh...OOOOhhhhh....OOOOOOOOhhhhhhhhhh

Reg : Is something wrong?

Dev : A senior told me that 50 years ago there was a boat club in here.

Reg : O sorry I don't know...U see, I was not born then.

Next Jayalakshmi walks in

Jaya : Sir, i want to tell a PJ (Poor Joke)

Reg : (shocked) wat???

Jaya : sir plz plz plzz i want to tell a PJ.

Reg : (Sensing no escape).. Ok fine go ahead

Jaya : if PJ is poor joke, what is P+iJ (mathematical notation for complex numbers)

Reg : (After thinking hard and scratching his head and plucking out some hair ) sorry I give up..what is it

Jaya : A complex PJ..muhahaha..hehehhe...hohohoho...(rolling on the ground and laughing)..suddenly she looks up and see our Reg loking blank..."Y r u not laughing"

Reg : err sorry throat pain...

Our last man Debojyothi walks in

He walks in playing cricket shots...

Reg : what is ur name...

Deb : Debojyothi....dada rocks...

Reg : Kiska dada

Deb : Aree saurav ganguly re...

Reg : Acha..tho tum west bengal se ho

Deb : Yeah..Dada rocks

Deb : So how many courses are there in Mtech..Dada rocks

Reg : ( Thinking...lagtha hei bechare ne aaj subah bathroom nehi gaya ) around 30

Deb : o good...but dada really rocks na...

During the entire skit, the audience were laughing and clapping was like anything and after the skit got over, there was a great round of applause. It was a great feeling to have done something good, and that too something which was not at all planned. At the time of leaving, many guys (known and unknown) came over to me and complimented me for the good showing. It felt too good...just out of the world
