Spring Fest 2007

January 29, 2007 at 3:25 pm (Uncategorized)

Since I don’t have the patience to compose a full-fledged blog entry about SF, I’ll just summarize the high points of the past few days in a bulleted list (won’t laziness ever even think about having a vacation. How it has survived in me for a decade and a half without getting bored is beyond me.) :

  • Watching the Band of Boys harmonize.
  • Listening to their clever composition that they called a nursery rhyme. Here’s an excerpt:

“He saw her there, sprawled on the grass
And when she rolled over, you could see her…

See her washing the clothes…”

And so on! Geez! Amazing stuff!

  • Singing Hindi songs that I had no idea I knew during the Shibani Kashyap performance.
  • Eating Dominos Pizza after what has seemed like a lifetime!
  • Answering ‘Periodic Table’ to a quiz prelims question that showed the last in a series of Comic Strips and asked what it was the last in the series of.
  • Letting my (long again) hair down in the open air disco.
  • Seeing the lights at the top of the Insti Tower through the thick fog.
  • Not being in the room between 8:00 and 0:00 hrs.
  • Finding out that there is a lot of land beyond the Computer Science and Engineering Department.
  • Listening to amazing college bands from across the country performing my favourite songs (including Satriani’s ‘Flying in a Blue Dream’).
  • Realising how hard JAM really is when my attempts at shouting ‘JAM’ were always cut short when someone else said it before me.
  • Headbanging to Prestorika when they performed ‘Enter Sandman’, ‘Fear of the Dark’, ‘The Wickerman’, ‘F^&* the Politics’ (a Prestorika original), and others.

What wasn’t so hot, however, was that we had classes the day after SF ended. No break! WAAAH! Anyway,

Happy new year, all!
S(qu)id(zoo).
