The days of pot culture

27 Mar

 We had to study applied sciences .For students of CBZ the only option then was soil sciences and crop practices.

We had two SUPERSTARS as our lecturers..

One was N whose English was a source of continuous entertainment.

Avara nudimuttugaLu were anarghya ratnagaLu.

We used to have his  classes in the somnolent afternoons ..zz ..zzz

His droning voice would make us doze off-as if it were a lullaby.

But tale- harteys like me would be busy writing down his notes seriously -as we would note it down in his  style-phonetically!!

The notes would provide comic relief when we would read them for tests and exams.

The other ratna was Mr.R who would come totally sozzled!!

To a middle -class ,sheltered girl it was scary initially to even look at him.Later we became so used to his inebriation that we would find it amusing to watch his eye-balls oscillating.

His lectures were totally a waste for us because his physical condition (or lack of it!!)was more arresting.;)

    Vani,this is a weekly serial..
    Why were you in awe ??
    This is news to me.
    Actually it is the other way round..
    You could speak so many languages fluently even as a tod.
    And you were SO independent!!
    I remember your mom (my chikki)
    saying,”koodalu haNe mele biLtaa ide,hinde maadkoLLe”
    And you would obey instantaneously 😉
    Instant obedience .

    I don’t know…generally speaking…..I felt that u were the trendsetter of fashion, for example I remember seeing you more often than not in Salwars those days, which was really rare…..and to study in a hostel by itself was a great thing in those days…..

    Obedience? Ask amma what she feels about me now ! 😉
