HOTC Ch 3: A Cultural Awakening

A new semester and a new classroom. We finally had a place in the electronics department. Though our class had a feeling of being out of place in the silent electronics dept, the new classroom's strategic position allayed our fears. The classroom had windows opening to the archi dept and the paths to Civil and Electrical depts. As you can imagine, there was continuous entertainment around ;-). Above all that, we found a new goddess - 'Sou' as we called her. No other senior have got so many dedicated fans in a single class she does. Her legend lives on in our mobile phone themes.

S3 was a semester of cultural and other events. The first in line was the sophomores' day, codenamed Miraglo. Though many connotations grew out of the name, the event was a success. Gokul, being the convener propelled our class into active participation in Miraglo. Mime, dance, rock show, Pulikali, Compering- you name it- we had applied colour in every event and organising committee. That was also proof that we were indeed a cultural force in college. The other major cultural event in the semester was Dhwani. It still remains the best Dhwani I've seen and the only one. Rivers of colourful birds didn't deter us from the job at hand. Once again we played our hand in organising the mega event.

One of the most memorable event that sem was our class tour. It's undoubtedly the best tour I went on. For once, we set apart the groupisms and celebrated it. Campfires and the bus turned into disco floors were not a single soul dared to sit. Wild adventures into mountain terrain, mischievous antics and interesting controversies - the tour had it all.

It was also the semester when we chartered unknown territories in the field of tech - Robotics. Thanks to Baachi, we were inspired into a field that both interested us all and gave us an 'academic cover'. Our first attempt, the soccer bots Innak and Aruk gave us third place in the competition held at TKM - Bhavah.

One of other things that comes to my mind is the Chicken pox epidemic, that engulfed our class. There were many more events I've missed mentioning. S3 was one of the longest semesters we had with University exams split up before an after Christmas (damn KU). With lots of fun and still lots of free time, it surely is among the top in my semester rating.

HOTC Ch 2: 'Dare' Remo Jayan

That Christmas was the season of dares and crushes. Every other boy had at least a small crush on someone. As the 9 gals in our class wouldn't suffice, there were even crushes in other classes. Though I'm not much informed about the gals' crushes, some of the names have surfaced.

I don't remember who introduced the dare idea, but it must've originated in the LH. Anyway each person had to dare another to perform something in class. That's whe Jayan got a dare from someone (Later revealed as Sreekesh). He was to propose to V, Remo style. His friends added an additional dare to do it in front of Jaseela Ma'am (a guest teacher ;-).

Jayan, who already had a crush on V couldn't resist the offer. He came in the period after lunch. Jaseela Ma'am was standing in front of the class, about to start teaching. Jayan said " I love you, V" and gave her a 'Remo' kiss in front of the whole class with teacher watching.

We hadn't realised then, the importance of that moment in the HOTC. V was shocked and reacted with an outburst. Jayan was both furious and heartbroken. Our group united for a common cause for the first time - to support Jayan (avane thekkan :-). AS, Varun, Hari etc. moved to our side to join in the fun and thus the incident brought our gang together. Jayan on the other hand found a partner in crime by accusing (not completely falsely) me of having a crush on V. In the following months, U and V became close friends and what we call a 'pair'.

To summarise other relationships, Jisha broke with Jaleel and became friends with Gokul. Nothing came out of Gokul's crush on Remya. LnT-Gemo melodrama continued in the background with most of the class (excluding me and some others) unaware.

The college sprang alive with events like genesis, techfest (Dyuthi), our first class tour, Ragam '06 and the election. Those were the times when we played dumbcharades and cricket in class. Cricket ended in Principal's room below us and the dumbcharades made Suraj Baachi. The election revealed for the first time a rift in our class. Two sections in our class were in cold war with each other due to political and other reasons. Thankfully not enough reasons surfaced for a physical fight in our class, but the college was thrown into turmoil. Thus ended S1S2 with university exams approaching.

HOTC Ch1: A Class Apart

I shifted from mech to applied the next day. College classes hadn't been what I expected. After the immeasurable freedom we had in Loyola, college felt like captivity. The mech class whom I expected to be the most alambu were a disciplined lot then. You can undestand my apprehension in moving to AE&I who are expected to be the second most padippist class in CET. But an hour among them/us changed my views.

The first thing I noticed about the classroom was it's size. High ceiling and large spacious walking and playing area at the back and sides gave it the feel of a small hall rather than a huge classroom. The benches were arranged in 3 columns. Two wide-bench columns to the right and small-bench column at the left. My friend Gokul guided me to one of the small-benches and he sat in the row behind me. My benchmates were Krishnakumar 'KK' Ajithkumar (ya that's one name) and Umesh Malayath. KK was busy taking notes the whole period and Umesh wasn't far behind. "OMG", thought I, but as I turned around realisation came over that the rest of the class was a different picture. The students were having fun - talking, playing etc and if noise level went above limits, the blame went to the adjacent S8 Comsci class. Thus began my life among the applied kidillams.

I migrated between the small benches and the last rows of middle benches in those days. Other than my schoolmates Gokul and Sureannan (then known as Vishnu), I sat alongside and became good friends with Gautham (now Gemo), Mahesh, Baachi (formerly Suraj), Jayasankar 'Jayan', Maadan a.k.a Akhil, KK and Mosqui (what was his name again?). Emmaus boys, Rep Rahul and some others sat in front of us in middle. Most of the right benchers remained unknown to me, though AS (Vishnu AS) was a familiar face from some tuition centre. AS, Varun, Hari super-knae, Ajeesh, Jaleel etc sat in the first two right benches with 'sweet talkin' Ajesh most often occupying leftmost position (for obvious reasons). Sadly, many of those old right benchers still remain unknown to me as friends and I know nothing of their stories.The gals occupied the first row of middle and left benches and still reserves the first row to date.

Our group was in it's formative state then. Spending more time together made us know each other pretty well. In other news, Lakshmi N, Jisha, Ajesh and Jaleel were friends then. Lakshmi Thulasidas (LnT) was one of the few gals who talked with us. Vimina was already crowned the online beauty (better of the lot) of the class, but she gathered only few fans 'coz of her reserved and apparently conservative demeanor. Noone knew how Remya or Simi sounded like (few still know). About academics, KK held the reins over assignments, and thankfully still does. Other than being a constant entertainment in Krishnakutty's class I didn't have much academic achievements then. This fun loving class was completely unaware of the interesting times awaiting them in near future.

History Of The Class- through the eyes of a student


Let me warn you that what is said this is purely not a work of fiction and are true incidents in the past three years of our class. Names have not been changed due to lack of imagination to create so many. Apologies for any mistake in the timeline 'coz I've focused more on the relationship dynamics than getting the time factually correct.

Some free time at my native place gave me the inspiration to write about the joyous years in college. It's fun reliving those moments and memories before they fade away and only the feelings remain.


It all began one fine afternoon in the |Autumn (October I think) of 2005. I was standing in front of the college office to complete the formalities concerning higher option. A girl stood beside me looking at forms similar to those held by me. I asked her name. 'Jisha', she answered. 'That's four', I counted in my mind the number of of people I knew as I entered the AE&I class of 2005, CET.

Has any of you ever written a love letter?

Yeah! You guessed it this post is on a love letter, in fact this is the first and the last love letter i ever wrote. It was written in my mother tongue so hope everyone how to read malayalam!(esp the one we get here,whatta script!) ;) (If you find any trouble in reading the article dont start crying like a baby, better consult an ophthalmologist)

Since there was no specific format for writing a love letter i thought of taking the skeleton from the format for a formal letter. I deleted the date,from,to,subject and all the crap and replaced the salutation with a catchy expression!

Here we go,

എന് പ്രിയസഖിക്ക്,

ഒരായിരം പ്രണയ പുഷ്പങ്ങള് നിനക്കായ്!

എങ്ങിനെ തുടങ്ങണം എന്നെനിക്കറിയില്ല . ഞാന് ഒരുപാടു ആലോചിച്ചു,എനിട്ടും, ചെയ് ! No solution! :( അത് കൊണ്ടാണ് ഞാന് ഇങ്ങനെ ഒരു സഹാസടിത്നു മുതിരുന്നടു. നേരിട്ടു കാണുമ്പൊള് എന്റെ ഉള്ളില് എനെത്ന്നരിയട്ട ഒരു വീര്പ്പുമുട്ടല് നിജിനകട്ടിരുനരോ പറയുന്നത് പോലെ ,"That's your gal! " ഇപ്പോള് ഞാനും വിശ്വസിക്കുന്നു ,"You are the one!"

ശെരിക്കും, ഇത് വല്ലടൊരു അനുഭവ തന്നെ. ആദ്യം കണ്ടപ്പോള് തന്നെ എന്റെ മനസില് നിന്നെ എനിക്ക് വേണ്ടി സൃഷ്ടിച്ചടനെന്നു എനിക്ക് മനസിലാരുന്നു. ഇതിനെവും "Love at first sight" എന്നൊക്കെ പറയ്യാ അല്ലെ? പണ്ടൊക്കെ ഞാന് വിചാരിക്കുംയിരുന്നു, loveഒക്കെ സിനിമയില് മാത്രം കാണാന് കിട്ടുന്ന സടനമാനെന്നു. പക്ഷെ നിന്നെ കണ്ടപോല്ല് തന്നെ എനിക്ക് മനസിലായി പ്രേനയം ഒരു അനുഭൂതിയാണ് അത് വാക്കുകളാല് അറിയിക്കേണ്ട കാര്യമല്ല, പ്രേനയിച്ചു തന്നെ അറിയണം !

രാത്രികളില് എനിക്കുറക്കം ഇല്ല, എവിടെ നോക്കിയാലും നി മാത്രം. എവിടെയും നി ടൂനിലും ടരുംബിലും, കട്ടിലും കനവിലും, ചായയിലും കപ്പിയിലും, എവിടെയു നി മാത്രം! എന്റെയുള്ളില് അനുരാഗ പൂമൊട്ടുകള് വിരിയിച്ച നിന്നെ ഞാന് Cleopatra എന്നോ? അതോ ഐശ്വര്യാ രി എന് വിളിക്കണോ?

നിന് നയനങ്ങള് താമരപൂവിതല് പോലെ,
നിന് ചുണ്ടുകള് എന്നെ കൂരിതരിപിക്കുന്നു,
നിന് പാല് പുഞ്ചിരി എന്റെ ഹൃദയത്തിനു കുളിരെകുന്നു,
നിന് മധുര സ്വരം എന്റെ കര്നങ്ങള്ക്ക് അമ്രുതായി ഒഴുകുന്നു...

നമ്മുടെ പ്രേനയം ഇതിഹാസങ്ങള് മട്ടിയെഴുടും, രോമെപോ-ജുലിഎട്, ലൈല-മജ്നു എന്നിവരുടെ കൂടെ നമ്മുടെ പേരും വഴ്തപെടും. നമ്മുടെ പ്രേനയം എക്കലറെയും നോ. ആയിരിക്കും!

In my dreams i see you i feel you,
I think of those wonderful and sweet days that 's beckoning us.

When i see you i feel an eternal bliss,
No drop of rain,no glowing flame has ever been so pure,
If being in love can feel like this then i'm in love for sure!

Waiting for ya ma love!

നിന്റെ സ്വന്ടം ഹരിഎട്ടന്!

As part of a ragging drill this kinda letter was more than enough.You know what, a guy actually forged the letter and proposed posing he wrote it. Whatta mook! Apparently the girl never had a second thought. They are a happily married couple now(god knows for how long)!
