Crajee IDJee..

Hello ppl..

Many of u have been behind me for this post, especially Biju ;) there u go.. :)

I started to write out the entire events related to freshers party in one post but the invitation for the party was a big event in itself.. so a special post for the same :)

Disclaimer: All the crazy characters mentioned in this blog are real, and any resemblance to you is purely intentional :P

As the tradition goes, we planned to throw the name tags into the design circle for the party entry.. but we had a problem at hand.. :(
For those who haven't had a look at the new circle, here you go...

No doubt it looks world class, but.. how to do it now..Nothing's more fun than playing in mud :)

We brainstormed and debated a lot over this.. there were all kinds of problems.. what if somebody fell on the floor.. how do we stop water from flowing out of the circle.. we went to the extent of scrapping the whole thing.. luckily sense prevailed and we overcame the obstacles :P
Added to this, our new HOD (Head of the Departed :P) doesn't share our taste when it comes to fun.. which meant that we would have to carry out the entire operation in his absence.. :P and what about the IIT 'Gestapo'.. wtf.. jo hoga dekha jaayega!

The result was one of the biggest undercover operations we managed to execute successfully during our time :D

So once our HOD left his office we got onto business.. we didn't have much time on hand.. things started falling in place once we started.. we got hold of some old panels of (super)^n seniors.. (all black n white photos :P) that perfectly fitted into the gap in the circle.. one of us got a sack of POP..then we put the POP around it to hold it in place.. what a novel idea! :)

We managed to seal all the gaps within an hour..

Now the dirty business.. keechad ke bina kya mazaa aayega.. he ha ha..

Meet the partners in crime.. fab ke fab kaminey faale ;)

Now our entire 'mehnat' was about to be tested.. would the POP n the sheets hold water? lets c..

mission accomplished!! of sustainability..bah! anyway we swore to compensate for the wastage by not taking bath for a month.. :P

We couldn't get the name tags etched from our laser machine due to some technical problems.. but that didn't deter us.. we got it done from outside.. didn't come for free ofcourse.. but no worries.. maal time pe pahuch gaya..

It turned out that the the etching wasn't so good.. so it would be difficult for our juniors to figure them out in the dark.. idea! we filled the engraving with permanent markers and cleaned the outside with thinner :)

In the meanwhile our missiles get ready.. :)

Meet our freshies! Most of them have no clue what all this is about except that they have to collect their tags.. the suspense is about to end..

Welcome to our koova(well).. have a taste of our nutritious home made keechad.. yuck.. :P

Saare log attension mein khade ho jao..

Rules are pretty simble.. Collect your name tags and don't come out till you find it.. mind it! Watch out for the balloons.. So the fun begins..

Reminded me of our own time :) nice shot surve..

The show goes on..

till the gestapo comes :( remember what I was talking about.. look at the agents merrily clicking the show.. won't go into details about the entire thing.. but it was enough for us to have DOSA for tiffin the next day.. :P

Hmm.. didn't end as we thought.. anyway.. ppl had fun n all were happy :)to bacchoon.. show khatam.. paisa hajam.. time to go home.. :)

Now we had to clear up all the mess we had made of the circle..hmm..but not before we had our share of fun.. getting dirty had never been so much fun.. nobody was spared.. :)

We did it! mission successful.. :P neat job guys..time for a break..

he he he..

so.. that was all about it.. next day we have the fresher's party... ;)

Loggin off for now..

Awesome Mausam!

This is 'wone' trip worth tripping on! :) I'm sad for all the ppl who succumbed to the flu.. but as they say.. one man's meat is other man's poison.. :-|
It all started when the institute declared holidays on thu n fri on account of the swine flu.. we thought that this time must be used effectively :).. we got together and narrowed down on places where we could have fun over the weekend.. we would have gone to Bhandardhara but thanks to Rahul and Sagar we changed our plans and decided to go to this place called Dugarwadi near Nashik.. and what to say.. it was worth it!

So we booked a mini bus and decided to leave early morning.. ppl somehow dragged themselves up and reached at the gate.. some just wouldn't get up..we literally had to break open their rooms and pull them up ;) sleepy sleepy.. zzz..

But once inside the bus all were ecstasic and full on enthu for the trip.. this was our bus..

We stopped over for breakfast at a very sad place.. all just wanted to scoot out of that place.. We drove some distance and we realized that in our hurry we had left baby Vineetha behind! Aiyyoo! :D We then turned back and picked her up.. whoops! :)

Though many pics were taken inside the bus most turned out bad due to the shake.. some of the better pics that captured the mood..

And yes.. how can we forget about the jodi No.1 of IDC ;) IDC ne bana di jodeeeeee....he he..

Then we stopped over briefly at some arbit spot on the way.. Nashik.. here we come!

Then we stopped over for lunch.. Managed to capture some beautiful landscape behind the hotel..

hmm.. time for a group foto.. ishmyle pleej..

After the lunch we proceeded for the falls.. we got off from the bus at a point where we realized the road wouldn't take us further..

Welcome to Dugarwadi.. moooo!

The landscape on the way was simbly amazing! The weather was an icing on the cake! thats why I call this post 'Awesome Mausam'! Have a look at the pics we clicked on the way..

I feel relieved that there are still some places that are not commercialized.. and their natural beauty is still intact..but thumbs down to the poverty that surrounded this place.. :(

It was a long walk towards the falls.. Was almost about to drop till i saw our junta crowding around at this point..

I went ahead to see what the fuss was about.. whoa! this was one of the most beautiful sight.. suddenly all the tiredness and fatigue vanished in thin air!

'Tipsy' decided to get recharged here.. :P

After spending some time here we decided to trek downhill towards the fall.. It was a long way down and monsoon had made the walk more treacherous.. most of us didn't know about the trekking part.. ppl turned up in their bathroom slippers, heels n stuff like that... miraculously nothing untoward happened.. unfortunately Hrishi had a bad fall on the way down..ended up with a ligament tear :( apart from this things were fine..

Felt so happy when we the gushing sound of the stream became higher n higher.. Ah! water at last..

The place was unknown to us.. we had to take every step with caution..the current was quick enough to pull anyone into it.. we had to form human chains to take each of us to the other side.. :)

Time for a commercial break.. then we start again..

This was a really wonderful sight! The fall was so massive that we couldn't capture a complete picture of it..

Once we reached the bottom of the fall we forgot everything and became children again.. :)Watch as we get ready to take the holy dip..

Guess what we are trying to do here.. ;)

A big thanx to u guys once again!

All good things come to an end soon :( we reluctantly pulled up from the waters and trudged back to the place where we had started from..
Trivia time.. what do u call Ruchika posing at a spot like this?.. 'Ruchky On The Rocks!' :P

The climb up was tedious but the fact that we would be stopping over at Sula Wines next acted as a booster.. so we raced our way up to ensure we don't miss out on Sula!
Nice shots Sanket..

Some nautanki before we move out :)

And that's our gang...

Then we leave for Sula..we call it the Sula Temple ;)
The pics taken at Sula haven't come out that good.. call it the 'Wine Flu' effect :P.. nevertheless I'm posting them.. :)

Once thru with the wine party we proceeded for dinner..Sanket arranged for dinner at a place called Baba's Kinara or something(just in case any of u happen 2 go down to Nashik sometime) we had a sumptuous meal here.. hmm..
Then what.. We got back into the bus and started off for IDCeee... we were exhausted by the end of it.. but everyone was happy... reached by 4:30 a.m... crashed off then.. zzzz...

That was some day! Hope such trips keep happening often.. :)
