MONDAYS ARE NO LONGER MUNDANE
There is an air of excitement, the campus is full of energy, rivalries have been renewed, thanks to the Fachcha(i) sports meet. As a FB post correctly pointed out, IIM-A is back in “Sports Mode”. A hearty thanks to SportsComm for providing a great opportunity to shed those extra pounds people gained in the Summers break (or whatsoever that small break should be termed as).
George Orwell once said “Serious sport has nothing to do with fair play. It is bound up with hatred, jealousy, boastfulness, disregard of all rules and sadistic pleasure in witnessing violence. In other words, it is war minus the shooting.” Well, bandaged hands and limping ankles are proof enough for that.
A few observations from a keen Eloquencian:
Anyone trying to understand product lifecycle, would realise that a bandaged hand became from a mishap to a fashion to a fad within a week. (But really, get well soon guys and girls)
The girls were as good as the boys in every sport, even though they didn’t “seemingly” contribute as much, they certainly gave their teams a certain intangible advantage.
The cricket matches gave the case-muzzling Wimwians to unleash the Kohli in themselves. (Please note we refer to the Kohli-the player, not Kohli-the ‘inspirational’ speaker)
Lastly, the comment "More than winning or losing, it’s the amount of fun we had which really counts!" certainly can’t be true. If true, I would like to put that as a disclaimer on all my participation CV points.
So, dear Fachcha(i)s, give it all you have in these last few days and then get ready for the most awaited moment of December. The time when the campus get even more energetic, the time when our Tuccha(i)s come back from their leisure-trip with enriching experiences at foreign universities and loads of chocolates (hopefully). You will put on weight again……………..:)
