Ahem.......

Okay…. Before beginning let’s make this clear that I love my university. Especially my department…… right from the ahem… ‘interesting’ and ‘colourful’ professors to the equally ‘interesting’ and ‘colourful’ students……from the DL ( well….I don’t really know if I have the right to comment about the DL because of the simple fact that it is probably my least visited place in the department)….to the AV room ( why the V part is included I don’t know…because the projector is almost always upto no good….) …to the rather dirty and cobwebby classrooms…. But well…..there is always a limit to everything… and people have to draw the line somewhere. And I draw the line as far as loving the loo is concerned. I mean…. I don’t know about the men’s toilet there….but has anyone ever been to the girl’s loo in our department??? I went some days back…( I had been there quite a few times before…but this was the limit)….and I nearly fainted at the ahem…’scenes’ which awaited me…..I mean what’s with people??? Why don’t they umm…’excrete’ at places meant for that purpose??? There is a perfectly visible commode for God’s sake….. And I am really puzzled about the people who dirty the loo….because no one…but no one in our department seems to be of the sort who would …ahem…do it on the floor….I mean can you believe it??? THE FLOOR!!! So who exactly uses the loo except for us??? I think the UG 2 people had a signature campaign or something complaining about the state of the girl’s loo…but I don’t think anything concrete has come off it….( except perhaps for a handwritten/printed sheet proclaiming the rules about using the loo which I doubt if anyone follows)

p.s. And to top it all, today I discovered that the lock to the loo was broken….

p.p.s. On a totally different note thank u once again to ragz and anc for the lovely presents they gave me. My friends do love me, don't they??

Ohmigod, lock to the loo is broken?
Ki sob cholche ladies loo'er bhitore? UG Arts bldg. er bhitore lots of kutta. I know, my sis went there for 4 years. lol..

erebus said...

no no... I love kolkata... but there are things about it that are dreadfully ironic... like taking a piss on street.... or a cop taking 2 rupee bribes from truck drivers in the middle of the day... and how it takes a week for a piece of paper to move from one government institution to another one 4 km away.

We've begged and pleaded and protested about the state of the loos endlessly but nothing ever comes out of it. Do you know how many random outsiders use the loo? I mean people just walk into the department to use the loo, mothers dropping off kids at the school next door, ten thousand and one non-university people passing through the campus, it's terrible really. And every time there's been a student teacher meeting this is brought up by the class reps but it's just an impossible situation. sigh.

erebus said...

Maybe you guys hsould consider a lock and key... works well...

"sen"sational said...

ARAGORN - yeah...lol

EREBUS - yeah...but that's the beauty of it...inspite of so many drawbacks..we still manage to get things done.

BABELFISH - yes. and once again...sigh.

EREBUS - yes...though not all the time..

scorpionragz said...

Glad you liked it!!!And ur most welcome.

Diviani said...

use the anita bannerji loo or the one opp the dsa on the top floor to avoid meeting with such unsavoury sights.

onnesha said...

warped spiral...do you realise that the "clean ones"that you just recommended are not going to remain clean any longer now that you have mentioned them publicly through a blog???

'Interesting' has quite a few shades of meaning, from cough-cough-interesting to... surprise... INTERESTING. Is sincerity so terribly out of fashion? But you probably didn't mean it that way. *shrugs*

As for the D.L. - the man is perfectly decent to people, the woman likes to surf cricket sites on her computer (the only one in the DL with internet, argh) and basically be mean to people whenever she likes.

And hey, we do get 'visuals' sometimes - the last time as far as I know was during the Sandman class, which I wish we had more of because yay pretty pictures and ok I'm shutting up now.
