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. But Golu was sad for few weeks when Dabangu left. Not because he lost a good friend but because Dabangu was the only one who had the ability to consistently score lower than Golu in every damn exam. Now in Dabangu’s absence, Golu was the only underdog whom other two can hop on!

That day, at around 9. Golu was just lying down on his bed. It was freshers’ eve for their juniors. Party was already over and everybody came back to their hostels, half drunk and half-hearted because 99% of the crowd still failed to find and approach his or her partners. Golu chuckled, thinking he was not the only one to whom universe was unfair with. Lying down, Golu’s thoughts were all jumbled. ‘It’s been months since I have sat down properly for studies. Hmm!’, Golu thought to himself.

Golu sat on the table and pulled out a research paper titled ‘On the importance of initialization and momentum in deep learning’ by someone with insignificant name. He read the introduction really carefully with his half closed eyes. He started the second paragraph. ‘Deep and recurrent neural networks are powerful models that achieve high performance on difficult pattern recognition problems. There are many difficult problems in life. Like the last time when you came across that girl who was your crush for like a week. 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! Mai sab sikha dunga’. Golu entered the pool at 4.45 pm by himself, came out at 4.48 with the help of two others, fainted.

Golu #Episode 3 : Who is Zafar?

Don’t forget to read first two episodes to get what’s going on:

Episode 1: Golu and First Day at IISc

Episode 2: Golu and his heroic love!

~~~

“You know guys, we are born in a very special time in human history. We have everything. Literally everything. We have a song for every possible mood like a speaking shadow of our soul. We have every damn vehicle to get anywhere we want in a matter of few hours. We have each and every kind of food to satisfy our taste buds. We have N sources for entertainment for our lazy cortex. Damn, we have 32 dating apps on play store even to meet the opposite sex. I think we are blessed. All this wasn’t there just few decades back. What if we had born few years before. We should thank Almighty because he showered his boons on….”

“Sutta bacha hai kya?”, Einstein interrupted Golu.

Einstein heard no response from other two. So he asked again about the availability of cigarettes.

There was still no response. He looked at them. They were staring at Golu.

“Either he is too smart or I am too high”, said Chinna. It was for Golu.

Master Golu : The one with our Hero’s love!

I know, I am quite late to post this second episode of our Master Golu series and no excuses, I apologize for that. Getting acquainted with IISc is not as easy as it is with IITB (and well, that answers typical ‘IISc or IITB?’ question).

I promise to post atleast one episode per month for those who like Golu and for those who don’t, I can’t force you not to be serious for few moments in IISc (pretty much similar to saying I don’t care :p )

Hope you like it ūüôā

“Well, life is not about what you plan and not about what you don’t plan either”, Golu read the¬†last¬†sentence and kept that book back on the shelf in same place and started the recently played song for the 46th time straight. Headphones plugged,¬†he leaned back in his chair and slowly¬†closed his eyes…

“Pehla nasha.. pehla khumar.. Naya pyaar hai.. Naya intejaar……..”

Our Golu was on cloud 9 since the day he got to know that she was in Civil, the department right infront of his CSA. One of his special sources and former intern at 221 B street, Chinna had everything for Golu. On the very next day when he first saw her, Chinna was ready with the report.

“Name? Tanya Mittal”

“Age? 22”

“Branch? Civil”

“B.Tech.? BITS, Pilani”

“Class timings? Mon-Wed: 8am and Thu-Fri: 2pm”

“Relationship Status? Complicated”

“Instagram followers? 504”

“Favourite Food? Panipuri”

“Favourite Actor? Rajesh Khanna”

“Favourite Sport? Gossiping”

“Proposals till date? 16 wait No.. 17”

“Ohh…”, this was Golu. “Well, ammm.. I don’t know”, his heart took a steepest descent transition from 9th to 2nd cloud on the last piece of info.

“Saala naam se hi lag raha hai ki bhai ke aukad ke bahar hai”, someone murmured.

“Is this a room?”

“What shit!!”

Golu’s room heard the the voice of its near future owner for the very first time. He was very excited to check out his new allotted after a lucky draw. Golu had sky-high expectations about how his room and other amenities should be, because he was told that by the universe that he was going to study at Indian Institute of Science… Science.. Country’s premium iinstitution!!

“Meh… Premium..” one among the four said.

It was the series of disappointments since Golu entered in the iisc from that library gates. First of all, he went late to the admissions final procedure. After a long waiting, he was done with documents verifications and then he got know that there is again similar waiting list for getting yourself photographed and taking your CSA department ID card.

‘Can’t they just do it across a single queue’, Golu thought.’Afterall this is the place where we are going to work on some optimization problems for making systems efficient’.

And then finally this hostel thingy happened. He got the worst hostel and the room without the company of any of his batchmates.

“Kharab rooms de hi rahe ho to kamse kam batchmates ko to saath me rakho”, the annoyed other among those 4 said.

Its been 2 days since Golu was the center of attraction of the colony. He had secured one of the top ranks in premium exam of the country. Everyone was having very high hopes for Golu’s bright future. The kind of 3-starrer hostel rooms he’s going to live in.. The 40L+ salary package.. Every father will run behind Golu as a perfect groom for tbeir daughters… his gali friends were envying him
