What kind of idiot misses the rock concert of his first and last Rendezvous?
What kind of fsckwit, having actually obtained band passes, goes off to Patiala instead of headbanging at Blitzkrieg?
That would be me.
Sigh. Ishaan and Rishi, when they persuaded me to become sharif, did their job too well. I have become so sharif it’s not funny. I have gone past sharifapa and become an automaton capable of only giving Mock CATS, and who has completely abandoned adventure and excitement and really wild things.
On the other hand, I can still exaggerate.
I am quite disgusted with myself, though. I didn’t have to worry about classes or anything, as with at this years GIR. (In a cruel twist of fate, I missed the GIR and returned to Patiala to attend a class which was subsequently canceled.) It was the first, and probably only rock concert I could have attended this year. As a general philosophy in life, I try to live in the moment and do things for no good reason other than to see what will happen next. And then, like a complete arse, I let myself become so disheartened by losing in that day’s quiz prelims, that despite getting band passes- band passes!- I go and toodle off to Patiala.
This, when I am fully aware that very few things beat rock cocerts in the ‘things that happened next’. As Arnab pointed out, I could have been deflowered by bandaides. Heck, when it comes to being deflowered I’m not picky. If I continue to be sharif, though, I’ll probably end up a thirty-one year old virgin. Knowing my luck, I won’t even get Perizaad Zorabian at the end of it.
Aadisht Khanna- hypocrite and sellout. That’s me.
