One good thing about taking admission in an engineering college and staying at hostels, is that guys get enough opportunity to enjoy and worship the heavenly fluids. We had the opportunity to worship a wide range of holy spirits with different types of smell and colors. Even though guys passed out from different other colleges would equally claim their devotion and intimacy with the holy spirits, but the engineers usually use to worship a little more seriously. True devotees normally don’t wait for special occasions and they regularly continue their devoutness and spirituality with extreme passion and sincerity.
During my hostel days I witnessed worshiping of the heavenly fluids in one room or the other, almost every evening and on some auspicious days (which usually used to come quite frequently), the rituals used to last till early morning. But even in such kind of a sacred environment where spirituality flowed freely all around, there were some ignorant and unfortunate guys who were totally unaware about the blessings of the heavenly spirits. I had no idea what prevented them to join the club, but I heartily appreciated their willpower.
How could I ever forget those fried potatoes served really hot directly from the hostel kitchen and wow! those hot and crispy big pieces of fried brinjal, stuffed with Besan was so tempting.
On one normal evening, Jishu Da heard those intriguing gossips and laughter from a nearby room. Even though he was from the minority community, but he couldn’t stop him to be part of the gathering and entered the room. Everyone inside was very excited to see Jishu Da and heartily welcomed him. What the hell was that? It was quite an unusual kind of ritual going on that particular room and instead of colorful fluids, guys were enjoying some colorless stuffs. The room immediately busted with Jishu Da’s typical blistering laughter and he commented "Hehe Haha.. what’s wrong with U guys? Why everyone enjoying vodka tonight?"
The room was occupied with some of our seniors and even our great Kaustav Da and Thapa Da were also present that time. Jishu Da already started to consume the mixtures and Kaustav Da offered him a drink, which Jishu Da gently denied. Kaustav Da tried to convince him and said "It’s just vodka and it’s consider to be a ladies drink. Also I’ve given only a small quantity and diluted it with almost the entire glass of water. Just have few sips and if you don’t like the taste then no need to have it"
Jishu Da consciously had a couple of sips and it seemed he wasn't very embarrassed with the taste. He commented that it’s kind of tasteless and Kaustav Da clarified him that vodka’s taste just like that. So Jishu Da also joined the party and tried to consume his peg quite slowly, sip by sip. As soon as he finished half of it, his behavior changed a bit and he started to talk more frequently and much louder. Jishu Da loved to crunch those mixtures after his every possible sip. By the time he finished his entire peg, his eyes were slightly red and then Kaustav Da offered him yet another drink. Initially Jishu Da hesitated, but it seemed even he also pretty much enjoyed the heavenly blessings and couldn’t resist the temptation for long. He enjoyed his second peg for almost half an hour and behaved quite normally according to the DRINK theory, which would be very well applicable to every degree hostel. Well, the principle is based on 5 large pegs. After first peg (D), guys usually behave as if they are very decent. After second peg(R), everyone becomes little bit romantic. After third peg (I), guys suddenly claim themselves to be very intelligent. After the fourth peg(N), guys start to get little naughty and ultimately after the fifth large peg(K), it’s actually knockout time.
Jishu Da was quite punctual with his timings and immediately after his second peg he politely asked everyone inside the room to just excuse him. He wished goodnight to everyone and returned to his room. He had a very sound and deep sleep that night, but the fact of the matter is, Jishu Da never consumed even a single drop of vodka that night, all he drank was just pure plain water.
