Bike Ride

Hiranandani. At night

3 people on a bike

Mohit Gidwani driving

No helmet

Driving rashly

No papers for the bike

No drivers license

It's like a sign that says, "Here cops! Here! Catch me! MEEee!".

Absurd, gratifying indulgence. Joy. Whoopee.

Will some1 give me a job?

No CPI. Some shady-ass department. No scolarship-giri. No behind-the-scenes poltu connections. Dept not open for half the jobs. Don't clear cutoff criteria for the other half. No extra projects done. No extra internships. No NCFM or NTSE or anything.

Will someone give me a fucking job?

Today I drove an autorickshaw.

Don't laugh. I did. I really did drive an autorickshaw! :D

Nidhi, Soumya and I were sitting at CCD and we're like "Lets do something crazy today." And driving autorickshaws seemed like just the perfect random crazy thing to do when you're mind-dead thanks to BTP, projects, bla bla bla.

Thus it was decided: We shall drive autorickshaws.

The minor problem was that we didn't know how to drive them damn things!

A short while later, after dropping Soumya back at home, we went autorickshaw-guy-who-will-let-us-drive hunting. The first few guys refused, but finally one nice chap agreed that for 50 bucks he would teach us and let us drive it :D

Then we drove. Round and around Hiranandani we went. It was entertaining. :)

So what's the craziest thing you've done today?
