Tell us about your voyage after MACE
I have heard that you also found a family in between these expedition. Can you throw some light on that too
Yes. Met a pretty young Rajasthani girl in HZL colony and fell for her. Eloped and got married in Gandhinagar. We are happily (well, most of the times) married for the last 20 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son both in early teens.
Being a typical female, I’m anxious about some funny incidents in MH. Would you please throwback to some MH stories.
Shhh… You won’t want to hear about the things that I did :-[
You were always at the warfront of college politics, could you please recollect some instances?
I used to be at the front of good things and bad things, excelled at both 🙂 Probably was good at organizing things and instigating people.
Heard that a prominent sakhavu used to spy for you and sometime saved you from attacks from enemies (now your best buddies) of opposite political background. Is it correct?
No, no one ever spied for me or on me. Never heard about that. All of my political opponents are still my good friends. One has to confirm whether he thwarted any attempts to physically harm me. Someone would certainly have had a hand as I was on the receiving end of physical violence only once in MACE even though there were ample reasons for me getting my back kicked.
Some of our comrades say, that you protect others and acted as a tough warrior with a good heart hidden in you? What do you think?
That is what I also think. I have a skill for attracting controversies and to get blamed for things I never did. Most of the times I had to be silent to protect my friends and my silence was misinterpreted as confirmation. People who start the issues fade away soon and I get highlighted as the main protagonist.
Saw the photos of a Bale in your FB. Please tell us about your social life.
Every year, HZL used to have dance competitions across its units. I had a part as Shiva in a dance drama / ballet where the Rajasthani girl I mentioned earlier was Parvathi. After a lot of rehearsals of Shiva marrying Parvathi, we realized that our frequencies matched and tied the knot for real. BTW, i login to facebook once in an year normally.
What will you advise to the young MACEians?
They are doing good. Just stay away from “bad influences”, but be bold and adventurous 🙂
How you feel about our Techie Bash “ Throwback 92’
Looking forward to meet fellow MACEians and relive the good old days.
You did have a nickname. Want to share that? And the story behind it?
Originally I was called “Bhayankara Bhaskaran” by some one in Pooyamkutty Lodge (was that George?) for my bhayankaram activities, but quite easy to be called Pakkaran later by all others.
