My EQ experience..!

I really got bored and thought to write something. And i end up with this. k.. let me share my experience i had in the EQ audition session. I hope everyone would probably know what EQ is. For people who does'nt know, its a college cultural show in vijay tv. The program's last season got over and was a big hit among the other programs telecasted in vijay tv. Because of that, they planned to hit the screens again with EQ2.

We registered our names and we got the invitation no sooner. We were called for the first session auditions on 6th of this month. We started arranging the team for dance, light music and some variety skit. I know to play a bit of guitar so i put myself in the music session. I composed a song and that was what we were practicing. To say it all, we had a nice time bunking classes all day with this so-called 'practice'. The other section of this was 'dance'. The only thing that make dancers harder is that they practice burning calories, but for the music session, we burn thoughts, our feelings. But to heart, this own composition was different and it gives out immaculate harmony. I loved this song very much, not because i composed it, but was my very first composition and hopefully came out well. My team also gave me some ideas while composing, even their part were played in this. We bought new drums and pads and made a good touch with the song.

It was 9:00 am, 6th of oct. we were practicing hard. We had to be there at nungambakkam by 4:00 p.m. I felt really tired cuz i were on fast that day. It was like something unusual happening around me. I was not at all interested cuz i was'nt able to do anything. The team was in heavy practice while i was running in search of rest. We arranged a car to take the instruments as the place was too far from our college. We sent the car with all the instruments while we reached there in an autorickshaw.

We reached there by 4:00 sharp, enquired about our slot. We waited in the waiting room till we were called. It was a different atmosphere to be. I really was happy that day cuz i had all my friends around, sharing jokes, having fun. It was'nt really like we were there for the auditions. We broke the absolute silence, had an acquaintance with everyone around. Finally, It was our time to perform. We arranged the instruments perfectly. But the whole song would be empty without the guitar. I connected the guitar and I was getting some electric shock from the strings. It was because of the stranger, the stranger actually was for heavy instruments. It gave a high output and i started getting electric shock of around 10-12V. Damn.! that was the first time i experinced such a anomalous thing. The level of our contingence started getting high. We somehow managed with the other instruments without playing the guitar. But still, it came out well. We got selected. But that was the first time i experienced that kinda freaky thing.

We started from there by 6:00 p.m. I broke my fast by then. I got a very good friend called Naresh, who is my junior. From nungambakkam, we had to go to the railway station, which none of us know where it is. We walked 2-3 kms, but i could feel any pain cuz i was talking with this brotherly chap Naresh, who was that sweet who almost shared everything with me. It was 9 when i reached home. I could'nt able to move even a part of my body cuz i was that tired. I took bath and hit the bed early. The funny part was, i had model exam the next day. Even my models was fun, and it always be so. I stared this post cuz of some other reason and ended up sharing everything. I'll keep posting cuz we have lot more auditions to come and to hit the main program. I guess that it would obviously gives oodles of fun. More twaddles, in my next post.

Srirangam trip..!

It was tuesday, the fourth week of july, Ram, my very good friend came personally and invited me and my twin brother for his sister's marriage. I thought the marriage would be held somewhere in chennai, but it was'nt. It was in Srirangam. I have not been into outing much. This was the first time im going out of chennai with my friends [Sounds pathetic..?]. Ram also invited some of his friends who were also my good friends and with some i had acquaintanceship. We all planned to start on 17th of August as the marriage was on 19th. Ram already bought tickets for all of us. It was 7:00 p.m and we all were there at the Egmore Railway station waiting for the train. Unfortunately, the train was a bit off time. Ram's family, his relatives, my friends, and a few more of his friends were there at the station and it was all a bit messy. We caught the train at around 9:00 p.m and started off. We had a chat for an hour and then everybody went to bed as they all were really very tired. It was me, sayan [my brother], Kaushik, Bhimal, GG, Ram, Dinesh, GG's cousin [forgot his name], Ganesh who had a blast. Kaushik and I did'nt sleep as we took care of the luggages as there were many. 18th morning 6:00 a.m we reached Srirangam. I was half asleep cuz i did'nt had a nap for about 6 hrs. and so was Kaushik. The Mandapam was 3-4 kms from the station. We hired a van and reached the mandapam. The mandapam is so situated that the Kauvery river runs nearby. It was 7:oo a.m and the climate was too good.

Rooms were allotted for us in the second floor. We all took bath and everybody had a good sleep for 4 hrs. Ranganathan Kovil is 1 km from the mandapam, but we did'nt had time to see that renowned temple. The only pastime for us was music. Ram brought his laptop along with and that helped us to kill some time. We enjoyed the whole day scrabbling around, scoff snacks, hit jokes and doing some stupid stuffs. That night, it was about 11:30 p.m, i was listening to some soft rock, some were playing cards, and some went out in search of apparitions, but no one slept. It was 2:oo a.m when we started taking some wicked snaps. We thought of taking some extraordinary snaps by one lying on top of the other, the other on top of him and so on. Somewhat like a human pyramid. But that eventually ended up in breaking the cot. It was 3:00 a.m, we were trying to concoct a reason for the mishap. We somehow managed to put the cot in some other room blaming it on them.

It was 19th, the day ram's sister Ramyaa getting married. Suresh was the bridegroom. She is so lucky to get a spouse like him. They were made for each other. We all attended the marriage and it was so grand and so beautiful. That was the beautiful Brahmin marriage i've ever seen. They were in their traditional clad. After the nuptial knot, we all went to fill our bowel and the food was too good. Ram introduced some of his school friends and we had a chat. After all that, we came to our room and took a nap. We woke up at 5:00 p.m, formed a small orchestra in our room. We enjoyed singing till our throat get sore. It was fun. We did'nt feel the rush of time and it was time for us to leave. We reached the station by 8:30 p.m. as the train will leave by 9:00 p.m. The train was on time and we reached Chennai on 20th morning at 5:00 a.m. We waved goodbye to each other. Myself and my brother came home hiring an autorickshaw. It was hell lot of fun and those 2 days were something special to me. The togetherness was something which we shared a few moments of happiness. I am waiting for my next trip with my friends and if i get a chance, there is no way i would neglect.
