Friend(s) Indeed.


Date – 5th May, 2017
Place – Room A103 A102, Hostel B, Thapar University, Patiala
Reason – Coursework. ’nuff said.

Do not mistake this for your usual CS-FIFA-DOTA session in progress. Some highly productive and fundamental things were cracked during the 15 minutes time frame on that hot and dry day. The residents of Hostel B will live long to tell the coming generations of their victory.

Edit – Apparently some of the residents who were so kind enough to visit my blog had misgivings about the veracity of the Room number. So my fellow reader, this event happened at Room A102 and not A103. The writer asks for forgiveness for leading you to the wrong path. *peace out*

Room A-103
Not a Game. Duh.

August 2016, Patiala – Coming to Thapar University for my undergraduate studies, I had decided that I would be involved into extra-curricular activities just like the school days. Continue reading Of Tata Crucibles and Mid Sessionals

Didn’t read any books any books in these 8 months.

Away from Home. The missing of homemade food threw my creative senses to a haywire.

Procrastination. ‘Ok tomorrow’ gave way to the day after tomorrow.

Thought maintaining a blog is a useless hobby. Who reads what I write? Who cares? Continue reading Back from Hibernation
