There has to be some kind of conspiracy theory to explain why the two of us (Anurag Sinha and I) end up living at stone throw distances every time we move to a new place,not to mention the conspiracy theory has to first explain why do we land up in the same village,town or city with a sub theory for the stone throw distance factor.The grand theory for obvious reasons will be called The Dulla Theory. This distance has always been greater a certain positive constant(hopefully the dual theory will estimate a value) which time and again reminds me of the saying 'Good fences make good neighbors' .I must add that you have to be real good stone thrower like Ankur Abhishek(will get back to you in another post) for your stone to land at Nilgiri Hostel from Satpura Hostel.
Oh, in case you are thinking this blog is about the 'sentiyaap of dosti' then refer to rules mentioned below:
- This blog concerns only with food and the drama around it .
- If at any point you realize the writer of the blog has nothing other than gulping food at several places during his last three years at IIT-D then you should refer to rule 1 even though realization is probably true.
- I neither drink(alcohol) nor do I smoke.For those of you who just murmured 'what a loser!!',the feeling is mutual.
- Rules are meant to be broken.
The not so million dollar question: If its all about food,why are people being mentioned?
The million dollar answer : The funny thing is there some weird connection between food and all my close friends.In blunt words if you and I have never dined together we are not close friends,not to mention dining together at any of the IIT's hostel mess does not count.So this blog would be about my friends and tales of our gluttonic sins over the years.
for example : Going to Pizza Hut with Anurag for the first time and ended up paying a bill of 1200 bucks or choosing to sit at far away seats to watch 'Ajab Prem ki Gazab Kahaani' rather than not watching the movie as if we already knew this would help us win the the lucky draw during the interval leading to free lunch at KFC!!.Yeah go ahead and judge me but in my defense during my first year I had nothing better to do then go and watch Katrina Kaif .
The reason I consider myself lucky to be in IIT-D is because of the 'D'.Hopefully there will be few food tales from Patna and Kota in future but if I were in Kgp or Kanpur this blog would have never come to existence mainly because of the people you will meet in the coming posts(mainly the A's,the S's ,theV's and a few more ) and the other reason is that zomato does not have a Kharagpur or Kanpur chapter yet and I guess you all know the reason as to why it is so.
One of the main reason of writing this blog is that I am bored and got no other work(third summer @IITD only Amit Agarwal can understand!!) and the other reason being Shadman and his stories of cheap and awesome tandoori chicken and biryani at Hyderabad.So I thought I would write my own stories here in Delhi and make myself feel better.
Over the coming weeks you all will get to know about the various food adventures especially in the past three years,yes I said 'adventures',you will be surprised to know what it takes to find a new place to eat and reach there and preparations you have to do before-hand,the division of bill and the fuzzy set rules of tipping to be followed and this rule is not the same as the pre-defined one in MATAB(yes there is a fuzzy logic example about tipping in MATLAB!!).
Well writing is one of my worst skill sets and I have written like 650 words in less than an hour.This is surely way beyond my daily word quota so until the next post, Bon appetit my freinds.
You are certainly welcomed to throw in your suggestion ,just dont be a grammar nazi.
