Anger unveiled

It is 4:43 and my eyes are wide awake. The entire world would be sleeping at this moment. Well, atleast the people in those parts where it is the night time. Obviously, because isn't that what people are supposed to do at night? Well guess what people at my college in one of the South Indian states are doing.... Any guesses?? I am sure you can do better than that guys... Ok fine let me tell you...

They are picking Pepsi bottles and cigarette buds from the campus garden. Why? Because the entire college; and when I mean by entire I actually mean entire except for a very few countable handful ones (which thankfully or the other way round includes me as well) was drunk and high to the maximum level possible. It was a Saturday night so 'daru' (Indian local word used for the upper class Drinks) is  expected. Infact I did expect the college to be drinking and smoking the night, but not even in my wildest of dreams did I imagine that it would go up to this extend. It has been exactly a week since I have joined college, and me being the 'social animal' that I am, I didn't know three forth of the crowd's names, especially boys. Neither did they make any effort to raise a hand. But I remember nearly five guys coming up to me and asking me my name and place. In fact when I asked one of them his name and place in return, he was hesitant of whether he was from Bombay or some other place starting with a Bom! And another girl kept chanting 'I am not drunk, I am not drunk' while dancing when she was supposed to be walking. People were that high.

I do not have an issue with people drinking or smoking. What the hell re! It isn't like people are going to pay heeds to anything that I say against something they are most familiar with, let alone drinking and smoking. I might be from a small town in Kerala, but I too have people and friends who drink and smoke. But I don't understand why do they go to such a level that they lose complete consciousness of themselves or their whereabouts. I am just very irritated, angry, depressed and sober right now, and I had to vomit it out somewhere since all of my other friends were busying puking shit! And what better place than my very own private space where God knows who reads my blog!

P.S: I am in no mood to find a picture for the article. You definitely do not want to see the pictures from college. Spare yourself the horror!

I know it's sick really. So uncool! But sometimes getting sloshed clears your head temporarily of the crap you're going through!

Not that I've ever gotten sloshed, let alone boozed. But my friends who do, I've seen them. And I know somewhere they are right! :/

Confused Soul said...

Btw where have you been. Infrequent blogging? All good? :)

Hazel said...

Oh dear I would hate that! At least you were responsible enough to not lose control!

Mirage said...

Exactly!

Drinking makes us feel good and light. Self control is very important because people tend to drink more and more to enjoy that relaxed state of mind. And the next thing they face is the hangover. Some of my friends have told me how bad a hangover is.

But you should not worry about others. Worry about the worthy ones dear!:-)

@Shreya: Well as you said it is just the temporary relief that it provides you with. The tensions still prevail once you are back in your senses. Wouldn't it be better to just solve them like a man, and not run away from them by getting sloshed?!!?

I know..I have been so inactive.. I really have to get back to writing :(!!

@Hazel: I am glad too :D

@Mirage: Ahh yes only those are the ones worth your time and worry :)
