Been a long time since I updated my blog… Was thinking of starting another blogspot account.. Lets see.. Btw.. I forgot to publish this entry in September.. So thought of adding some more stuff before publishing it…
I slept, without even caring to be excited about the next day. My internship was gonna start later that day.. I had to be at ‘Leela Scottish Lace’ by 10:30am, and if I wanted to do that, then I would have to wake up at atleast 7:30 or 8:00.. I didn’t have my clothes ready, and I hadn’t figured out what I was gonna wear! Figuring out clothes is a pretty tough task especially on such an auspicious day!! I had to pick up something that didn’t have any disastrous events in its records! And only a fully awake me can perform intricate tasks like these.. Damn! Its almost 9 ‘o clock.. Why am I still asleep?!? And why’s no-one waking me up? Shucks I’m gonna be late.. Luckily wake-up call came in the form of my bro’s annoying voice… He was shouting at someone.. or something? I was not completely awake, so I couldn’t figure out whether it was at me, my mom or the dog.. I jumped out from the bed soon after I saw the time! And rushed to subject myself to sophistication processes.. Anyways.. by 9:45, I was presentable before people, Shalin had come, and we took around 15 mins to reach the company.. The others[Anju and Lekshmi] joined us a little later.. And we were on our way to the office..
The security guys told us that GM had not reached the office yet.. And they were not quite sure whether he’ll be coming that day either.. We were standing there, wondering what to do.. After a lot of waiting, a woman ushered us into the factory and introduced us to the Industrial Engineer, who seemed to have handled trainees [switched to that word since nobody knew what interns did] before, and was appointed to be in-charge of us.. He was a young guy who seemed like a jolly good fellow in the beginning, with his charming looks and casual way of dressing.. But that was just a facade to the evil lurking within! It was the same for all those who were workin there.. Everybody seemed to have some kind of an attitude problem.. Everybody except for the receptionist chechi and the security chettans who helped us be on time!! ;-) There were three buildings and six interns.. So they split us into three groups of two students each and gave us nine days in each building..
Day 1 was unbearable for us; Anju and I hid behind the huge stack of fabrics inorder to avoid the hundreds of pairs of eyes, which scrutinized us all day.. It was the same for the others in the next two buildings.. Day 2 was better.. A girl named Asha, studying fashion designing in Bangalore, joined us in the first building. The only reason she picked this company was to stay at home for a few weeks during the internship! She was our same kind, and it did not take a long time for us to get aquainted.. well.. more than aquainted!! The five of us went out together on weekends, we shared all our good and bad memories with each other, we even shared our secrets with each other! She’s a good friend even now.. :-) Anyways, though eventful, the months of June and July and even August went just like that, which finally resulted in the re-opening of college on the 4th of September…
Since then, I’ve been pretty busy.. Work has increased, and this subject called ‘Textile Designing’ is driving me crazy!! I’ve never painted so much ever before!! I could have painted an average sized compound wall with that much time.. both front and back!!! Its been a long time since I kept that paint-brush down.. Its been a long time since I went out on weekends.. Hell! Its been a long time since I’ve even seen the city that I love! It has been only the road from Railway station to my home for almost a month… It will be the same throughout the year.. Lots n lots of work only, and no time for anything else :-( Btw.. Sports Day was on 15th.. None of us even cared to go downstairs to the ground to see what was happening!! It took Supriya Miss to give a round of cheethaparachil inorder to send all of us down! :D But once we got there, some of us got motivated enough to decide to participate! Unfortunately, we came to know that the contestants had to register a week ago… How come we didn’t know about it? :-( Anyways, we went back near the ‘Assumption Lake View’(some unclean water flowing through a channel, which thankfully didn’t smell or look bad! :D) where we could get the best view of the running race, sack race and all the other events! To me, the most impressive event was the walking race conducted for teachers. Wow, I donno how they managed to not fall walkin so fast! Anyways, there was still an event that we could register for, on the spot.. It was tug-of-war.. Desperately, I gave my name too!
There were 10 girls in a team.. That was the first time I was seeing the thick rope they use for this game so near! Whats the severity! Just pull the rope as hard as I can.. Very simple.. There will be three trials against a team. The one who gets two wins will be the winner. And there won’t be a third pull if a team gets two consecutive wins.. of course, very obviously.. Why waste all that energy? We pulled the Zoology dept. and we won.. In the quarter-finals, we pulled the Home Science dept, and we won… In the semi-finals, we pulled the Physics dept, and we won again.. Its time for the finals.. But they conducted the ‘shuttle-relay’ finals at that time.. And the winners were BFT!!! It was the first points that we were getting.. 10 marks scored till now! And now, time for the tug-of-war finals! We were pullin the Maths dept now.. They were last year’s winners.. But we pulled… with all our stamina… but couldn’t hold.. and we gave in… not once, but two times… :-( And we scored 6 marks for the event.. After the prize distribution (oh yeah.. they gave pink colored bed-spreads for each team-member!), they announced the over-all marks.. Chemistry dept was holding the third place.. And Fashion Technology dept was in the 2nd place with 16 marks!!! :P There was shouting, screaming, cheering…. I’d give anything to turn back time and be there once again!!! Takin part in just two events, and comin to the 2nd place!!! Wow, my college suxx!! ;))
Anyways… hmm.. no.. next post… :P
