It has been 5 days since the new mess complex, 'HIMALAYA' at IIT Madras started to function.

And since then, I have had 5 meals there. All of them lacking in something or the other in specific, beyond the over all lack of some things.

As a friend had listed somewhere, You loose a lot of time going all the way to the place and also standing in long queues. You miss the good old mess atmosphere and the food and the friends with whom you eat and all that. Even if one could wish off all such "mundane" issues, the food you get there is rather nothing different from what u used to get in the mess. For an extra basic of 13 rupees, you see visibly the only difference being the place where you eat and nothing more.

what is the blank truth is that, this has come to stay. In the name of Christ, i am not pessimistic or i am somebody who resists new things, but i wish to be true and frank about anything that leads to problems. As in the case of anything else, poor planning is there. It was initially proposed to have two exits and one entry. Now, the exits are closed for it is feared that people who dont belong to that mess, would enter thro' the exits and eat from that particular mess. This is one glaring example one finds and there are much more, if one looks in detail.

Last but not the least, the names given leave a nice smile on my face atleast.

This is move delibrately one, the reason partly being breaking hostel spirit which sometimes creates "problems" at schroetor and lit-soc.

Each of these moves makes IITM a sadder place to live. One just wishes to pass out sooner than later

One just wishes to pass out sooner than later..that to me was the most important line in the whole past...;)
i mean post, not past :D
...and I thought this was only an attempt on the part of the dean, with his tenure ending, to misuse that last shred of power remaining.

btw, the stairs have the pseud, slippery tiles, and the interiors have coarse ones. Let's wait for a rainy day and see what happens ;)
