19th-22nd march 2007,AFSU hosted the sanskriti.....for those who don't know what sanskriti is,it is Jadavpur University,fest...and this being my first experience...it was one helluva rocking time...best part was..even my Italian class dint take place so it left us with more free time to enjoy..and boy!dint i have fun...
quizzing and antakshari was fun and so was second earth and they were good...it was great fun..specially the evening as we all chatted and lazed around
sweltering heat and parched throat..eastern rounds went well and the posters we designed looked great too...the drama "yeh" was wonderful and very inspiring...the "chou" dance too.was quite entertaining
day 3-BLOOD DONATIONS CAMP
FAS organized a blood donation camp for helping the injured people of nandigram...i wasn't sure of it because i had this nagging thought,that,the needles and the equipment were not hygienic and once i saw the sealed kit being used with everyone i was relieved..and since dad gave me the green signal..i went about with the process....after a lot of pricking and prodding...my vein was found and amidst pain and friends encouraging me i finally did it...despite fear and anxiousness killing me as the vampire[the Doctor] was sucking my blood into the pouch...but all for a good cause...liberated at last...free of the guilt that i could do nothing...i have done my bit to help people in distress...samik was pissed at all this but after a lot of bickering he came around..
day 4 sanskriti comes to an end
the evening was spent i basket ball court...lazing with friends and cracking stupid jokes and whiling time away...then saw SHELLAJIT perform...it was good...and then came LOKHICHARA...and for the first time i enjoyed watching a progressive rock Bengali band who specialized in death metal.it was just awesome...balmy evening..with cool breeze ruffling our hair...soon without notice it started to pour and we ran for cover....thank god khyati's car dropped me home...it was way past 10pm and with the rain it would have been difficult to come back home...
watching sanskriti for the first time...was really an experience of its kind...it was hot and sweaty but with friends around even that didn't matter...we just went with the flow and had a ball..maybe our fest was in the grand scale as the engineering faulty but i am a person satisfied with smallest of things...so the whole event was a memorable and a fun filled one...
yesterday at a friends place...we had a booze party..well actually the guys boozed as the girls contented themselves with just sprite,pakora and later on coffee,specially made by me...don't smirk!no one fell ill..no one said it was yucky! so that was a relief!we had the best adda session ever...what with almost 10 of us huddled in a small room...some sprawled on the bed,while others squeezing to fit and others making themselves comfortable on the floor..i even missed my Italian class to have fun...and my god!it was hilarious!
