Thanks to the face book that we have again become one family with all the ex- Hindu College Delhi University friends from 1992-95 batch . Or we could have perhaps never meet each others : only some could have meet after day of the judgment may be . The batch prior to invention of face book are real unlucky ; as they will perhaps never know were their majority friends are now; as we are also having problem for total recall so please my class mates B.A ( pass ) Course 1992 batch are requested to contact me with group photo if any . I only remember Ajay Jadeja who was a real Cricket hitter .Also best was my Hindu College Football team , last time when I went to Hindu feeling of nostalgia swept me and Madonna’s song this was the ground I played seemed to have sound in my ears . Only with Sudesh my football friend I have managed to contact in face book . Surprisingly I met Mahaseth in a Metro station .
The day I joined Hindu was a particular anxious days like other student friends ; this was the year 1991; For me luckily through sports quota I got admission in 11th hour in Hindu : actually recommendation of my senior Sri Kanki Darangji presently ADC Govt. of Arunachal Pradesh mattered a lot , as Dutta sir the Football coach was under his spell in play ground . Latter we found that the Sports quota was the worst thing for us , As we only used to envy others spending their time lazily while we were slogging in the ground . Datta Sir seems to have personal Vendetta against the Jakhir Hussain College whom he wanted to beat black and blue always . The football match for the College was really boring as very few audience came and we felt more like joining a sports school as Datta sir was determined to get the best out of us as such their was no time for even romance for the footballers . But it was fun and fare playing for my Arunachal team in NESFED
The day I show the rock show the Hindi saying applied - Paw tale Jamin Kisak Gaya , another interesting thing for us was watching movie in Priya Dolbi sound was very rare than . As I come from remote part of Arunachal pradesh that too from boarding school RKM were we never witnessed this sort of things ; it was really nerve breaking experience . Thus my heart never belonged to Delhi as few of us from A.P were first generation educating family and were just giving brave front in Delhi like our Bihar friends who cling to us for learning English . Though Delhites were treating us like our advanced cousins from Nagaland , Mizoram and Meghalaya we were not happy inside as they expected us to be class apart like knowing all the English movies and songs and taking Pency-Drill an intoxicating medicine used commonly at that time . But for others who were from aristocrat families they adjusted soon .
Sonam bhai thank u for giving cine star Arjun Rampal and me temporary shelter though it was acute discomfort to you as Bade Bhai Kanki Darrang was already piling on with you . Later on I shifted to a rent house giving much relief to Sonam Bhai and Arjun as Sonam bhai always used to get pissed up by mysterious disappearance of his favorite Chinese Shoe which Arjun seems to be wearing in numerous parties . As money was scare thus we used to be kick out by Panch a short of poor mans drink, a short of admix of all the fruits hard drink and Pencydril .
In Delhi the money mostly used to be spend for quenching our thirst by Pepsi and eating Ice Cream in summer and munching Band Mackan in Hindurao and sometimes after winning football having party in Majnu Ka Tila e,i- Chang Town . The familiar faces their seems to have attracted us and most of the buildings to this day must have some contribution from senior students in the form of purchasing a peg bears and rums . In Hostel the Biharis had tremendous working relationships with Arunachalees my cousin Sri Komkar Riba managed to win the College Councilors post by their support . As we could also speak Bihari they were fond of us ; we use to imitate their funny pronunciation like Burger which they used to say baargaar they didn’t mind . Akhileswa Hamni Jhoot Nahinu na Bole and this used to balance the jaat increasing power , to this day most of the face book friends are Biharis .
Me and Arjun become very good friends my sister now Lecturer Law Fac. Delhi University remembers that she used to get angry seeing Arjun wearing my jeans pant again and again , those days we were living so much like brothers today thanks he has become a super star and at least replied in face book . Arjun Tujsi Great Ho I remember your confidence when you told me that one day you will be a film star . The readers can also read other article – My friend Arjun Rampal I wrote long time back. Today it is doubtful that Arjun will remember those days or not but common friends tells that he is still very down to earth and are still visiting other friends in Delhi . But surprisingly during those time I was the star . I was really appreciated by friends than because once to prove a point to a Noida girl I sang one hindi song in Mecca fest. It was the most interesting occasion in College . The popular song those days was – Pahla Nasha pahla Kuma , Hotel California and Kenny Roggers – Cowboy in the Country . Those were days of high spirit And I become a rage in college . But that was the time when all were after third girls while first and second where after him .
Now when I look back it seems Dhondi , Arjun Rampal and Komakar Riba and others were making good fools of me to use my bike as like other emotional friends who were in badly crash with Delhi kuddis our - Mungheri Lal Ke Hasin Sapney stage seems to have been made good use of by them . The romance doesn’t happens always with tough Guys we the footballers were taken numerous advantage by friends to organize numerous dance party in fake birthday name mostly ours as we were very popular than . I being President Arunachal Student Union 1993 than has to mostly bear the expenses and tensions once party was over . And need not to say Guys were after me to go to party but personally I failed to reap the harvest as Dutta sirs strict schedule didn’t permitted the football players . But Arjun was a real Hunk girls were fighting for her and they never seems to have mind .
In NESFED festival e,i- North East Sports Federation meet were all the sister States of the North east meet Our Arunachal team have become real winner we defeated the Naga team three times in a row . The wonder boy Abu Tayeng now P.D Govt. of A.P come up from no were and become the leading striker . He seems to have even practiced in night to be selected in the team as it was difficult to breach Arunachal Football team unity mostly filled with RKM Players unless exceptionally talented he managed . The prominent players were kanki Darang , Kaling jerrang , my good friend Mikar Gamlin , Maryom karlo , Jarsa Gamlin , Tasi Tsring , Ajin Apang , Lituang Lowang , Oni Apum etc. but The handsome friends watching the games rather used to walk away with the beautiful Girls and to this days are jokingly noted as official Arunachal Bulls and are nagged by us . It will be too much to name them . And we the sluggers dumb headed used to be content with cheap rum and pork in the Gupta colony or Autrum lane mostly cooked by a good expert whom I don’t dare to name . probably this habit of us carrying pork in polythin may have prompted Syam Thapa a young journalist to write a article – Jag Surraiya in Times of India which was tooth and nail opposed by all the Chinks as the North Eastern Stundents where called than .
The day we leave Hindu was the most painful day I still regret not saying goodbye to my friend Arjun Rampal and Sarina Anand God knows were they are now . And will I be able to contact with my football mates in Hindu and my class mates ; sometimes feels like tears coming down my leaps looking back memory lane 17 years back . So many things to say to them . Please pray for me that one day they meet me passed through situation kind of watching – Kuch kuch hota hain . After the Delhi which I left with so much pain . I geared up and after prolong illness , sychological depression and seeking the truth in swami Vivekananda way I finally geared up myself and find absolute happiness in Lord and savior Jesus Christ . Thank to God that I manage to complete my LLB . Other friends also faced problems like me as the Arunachal society was least ready to open up for ultra modern People like us it was like the character in the Hollywood movie – New World . Adjusting in Delhi was difficult more was coming back to the roots .And worst was working for it but some has to work for the grass roots also .
