Golu #Episode 4 : Badi Talab Lagi Hai, Muskurane Ki…

Don’t forget to revisit first three episodes to get what’s going on, especially the third:

Episode 1: Golu and First Day at IISc

Episode 2: Golu and his heroic love!

Episode 3: Who is Zafar?


Its been quite a while since Dabangu left. One year passed like a breeze and Golu was still trying to get hold of the IISc life. Few ‘not so important’ things happened in between. Golu lost the final cricket match for CSA by bowling 4 consecutive wide balls in the last over, almost got slapped for trying on random crushes out of desperation, faked the results to get good grades and what not.

You can’t forget the reactions of the trio when they first saw her..’, Golu was slowly being drawn to the limbo of mixed realities. Well, this often happens when our Hero tries to study with full josh. Back to limbo, Golu remembered the suggestion given by Chinna, ‘Abe meri sunn aur swimming join kar le. Girls like her like the toned body and stamina that swimmers have. Ammmmm..!!’. The very next day hero joined swimming without any trainer because of Chinna’s overconfident support ‘Mai hoon na!
