Common Habits of MANITians and reasons behind them

This is one of the articles I wrote for the college newsletter this year. :)

1. Waking up Late

i. Late night chat with GF/BF till 4 am. Rather Early Morning Chat.

ii. No water in the toilets to brush the teeth even. Water is highly scarce in Bhopal these days.

iii. Late night party. Reasons are varied from year to year and hostel to hostel.

2. Reaching class very early

i. To catch a seat in the last benches.

ii. Exam day – To write down few answers on the bench.

iii. Nothing edible to eat at breakfast.

3. Sitting in the last bench

i. Free message pack. And a ‘friend’ in another class with the same.

ii. In anticipation of a surprise test.

iii. College time is Novel reading time.

4. Sitting in the first bench

i. Late to class. Last benches already taken up.

ii. The teachers always concentrate on the last benches. Easy to sleep/ copy/ message from the front benches.

iii. I want to be a 9 pointer.

5. Busy in Lunch

i. Trying for 2nd half GT.

ii. Member of one of the student societies of the college.

iii. Submission Deadline. These are pretty flexible though.

6. Window Seat

i. For Air. Half the fans in college don’t work properly.

ii. Airtel Connection – For Network purposes.

iii. Bird Watching. No, not the ones in the air or on the trees. ;-).

7. Carrying more than 3 notebooks to class

i. Loyal Friend who submits friends’ work as well.

ii. Submission in the afternoon and can’t afford to miss classes for attendance purposes.

iii. Way too sincere. These though are a rarity. More common among the fairer sex but can’t be witnessed due to fancy bags and other “eye-catching” stuff than notebooks.

8. Uncombed Hair

i. Woke up too late. No comb.

ii. Roommate with the comb locked up the cupboard before I could wake up.

iii. New Style Dude. Just out of the bed look !

iii. Fresh air.

iv. Has a BF or GF. Or has split with BF or GF.

10. Roaming around here and there looking at the mobile

iii. SMS Addicts. Mobile Gamers.

11. Totally Broke

i. Smells Bad. No money for washing clothes or buying a Deodorant.
