funny, had a class test today and it felt like high school all over again. i was the last to arrive in class (everyone had punctually reached at 11 am ready and prepared for whatever question was about to be thrown at them and THERE i was... leisurely sipping a warm cup of tea outside of campus and thinking what important work might i do today... and then, i get a call, 'sange where r u?' 'um, i... am having TEA!' he he.. 'you'r having a test remember? come over at once' o boy, the head of department called so i guess i have to rush over, which i did feeling quiet embarassed and stupid)and what a sight! everyone bent down on their papers and studiously writing!! no way we ever do that normally. we usually groan and moan at the very mention of class test or a project work. aghhhh!!!! awwwwww!!! arrey nahi!!!! and all those noises showing immense inner displeasure. i mean those groans and moans really come out from deep within! and added to that one of our faculty has given us a very innovative/deep/intelluctual/etc question to write four lengthy pages on....
ARE YOU HAPPY?
AAAAAAAaaahhahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaAAAAAAAAAAAAAhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.............
HM..... on the other hand.... I GUESS maybe it's kinda valid question? i mean...i certainly don't have the answer. o boy o boy.... O BOY!!! how the hell am i suppose to give the answer to that in ffooouuurrrr lonnnngggg pages!!! it could have been so much simpler with options
option a) YES
option b) NO
guess i'll scratch my head over it for a few days....

(NOTE TO SELF : get album of JONOTHAN CLAY and MINDY McCREADY. Also look up other country/pop singers.)

hm... seem i wasnt here for the past three days. what on earth was i doing for the past three days? oh yeah, all those project work that our facultys been dumping on us since it's the last week of class for the year.

Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Steve Irwin.

why the hell didn't our institute invite Hrishikesh Mukherjee for workshops?
AARRGGGHHHH!!! such a HUUGEE lost for us. BIG BIG BIG TREMENDOUS lost!! yup, stupid us.
i would no more have the plesure of watching new adventures of the Crocodile Hunter! i saw a pic of Steve Irwin once somewhere with an accompanying article. a ballroom sort of place where everyone was regally dressed up in tux and suits. and here he was, Steve Irwin, in his classic KHAKIS and Boots. HE HE ... those tux guys must have felt REEALLY out of place!!
GOOD ON YOU STEVE!! REST IN PEACE.

yes. hrishikesh mukherjee and irwin were a loss. i also felt the same that day, seeing us all write. the element of good humour during the exams is gone now. it is as if we all are on to proving our seriousness. (i reached there late too :) sandeep reached right after me. you wasnt alone, sangeji. but a funny thing. we started with the exams on montage and i guess we are still there. eisenstein started on montage 60 years earlier and we are still there, arent we? when do we start discussing contemporary film makers...there are about 500 films being released each week. indian film school is waiting for those films to become classics and 40 years later our grandchildren will see the work of the millennium heroes of film making. man! i get angry.
