B.U.F.Y. 3: Blue Pill - Red Pill

Baby, Uncle and the Fifth Year (B.U.F.Y.) Part 3: Blue Pill - Red Pill*
Link for Part 1, Part 2

Bike and Lamboo’s Curse: When Baby got bike, Uncle and I was sure that it is not like Baby got a bike but it more like 'Baby got a bike to maintain and Lamboo got the bike to ride'.

It was very much true until Lamboo got his own bike. So it was very surprising that whenever Lamboo asked for bike – no matter Baby gave him or not – something wrong had to happen with the bike.

If he would give the bike to Lamboo, Lamboo would accidentally accident it, and if he would not he would find a shock absorber malfunction, tire burst or a warning note by Prof. Sinha to take care of his bike.

We never knew whether these things were intentionally done by Lamboo or not but by seeing the pattern we called it ‘Lamboo’s Curse.’

Baby’s Gate Score: It was shiny golden star stamped beautifully printed on nice paper which was holding your photo saying this guy had cleared gate and was eligible for scholarship. A paper which you wouldn’t like fold (yep, it was better in quality and more authentic in appearance than fake looking original IIT Kgp’s Bachelor degree.).

We surrounded the postman when he came with gate score card, Baby was able to find his first. We started pressing him to show how it was. We never knew his folded psychology, seeing us wishing to see his card he folded it cruelly (the star must have wept!) forced push it inside the tight jeans pocket and ran to his room locked it from inside.

What was the thing he was trying so hard to hide!

Uncle’s Dilemma: Dilemma was to be happy because he was one of the only two students in whole Biotech department who were able to clear gate (Even Dilip Singh couldn’t) or to Requiem for being one of only two unfortunates (other one was Ravi Agarwal) of RK Hall who wouldn’t be getting scholarship even after clearing GATE until end of next two semesters. (That, too, was not clear whether they would get it.)

Uncle’s face expression was one of most watchable feature when someone asks regarding the fellowship. I can quote three-four varying answers (varying in sense) which uncle used to give depending on person and amount of knowledge that person had about Uncle’s case.

Throughout the year , this was a pain in Uncle’s ‘you know where.’
