My gang in Fun!!


Degree of mine was actually a roller-coaster ride. My College is one of the famous one in the state itself, St Aloysius College. College is known for its history of over 128 years, one of the most beautiful chapels, old classrooms and wide Kattes (platforms below the shades of trees) christened as Al-Kattes. All lecturers would agree we learn more here in Kattes than the classrooms.

Our gang was the masti loving, studious, prankster at the same time creative and adventurous one. Thanks to the samples in the group. Consisted of Ani, the creative head! Be it anything from dance to directing movies or plays, her right brains worked overtime. At the same time expert in falling sick and hurting herself… Anu.. Sha…(Eeehhhh) She does not like being called her full name so we do what she does not like. If you want a listening ear, here she is. Give her some responsibility and assure yourself, it is done. Her rough notes were so neat and comprehensive that all boys had a photocopy of that. Then comes Joe, the hunk and innocent guy of the group, Always there to help, Expert in PJ (poor joke) encouragement. Handler of video cameras and cameras (We are journalism students) and dozer of the class. During exam times he can never forget me or way to my home for notes, just one day before though. Maykha, prim-prom aunty (oops she is married so), talkative and always ready for adventures, very religious church-visitor, and the way she speaks you go on listening. She and Tutu belong to the BSW (Social Work Dept). Tutu another handsome dude in the group. Expert in Malayalam, Jai Kerala, Any thing you need in Mangalore, he will know though that was the frst time he actually came down to Mlore. He knows all the nursing students (????) even I don’t get the connection. The doctors and hospitals of Mlore have Karmic Connections with him. He was regular in hospital not visiting but us visiting him. Yeah malaria, viral fever etc etc…Nishanth Shetty is the Master-Blaster. Why??? Master because any doubts on GK, Politics, Journalism, Editing, Kannada in short anything under the sun than here is our answer. Journalism exam day He is the most sought after guy. Blaster because he starts blasting that’s it. Quite an independent and dependable person. He is the only one whom I call or he calls during important exams to wish that I fail in the Paper. Then only the paper goes excellently well.

Then comes me.. Most talkative, early home-goer and according to them a studious girl (my mom would not agree though), quite accident prone and gets angry when they are late and thus perfectionist by nature.
This is our gang. Mix and matched by the nature… More to come….
PS: Joe is missing in the snaps…
