Boyz Night Out

Standard

Our college’s annual inter-college technical fest Jagriti ended yesterday . The three days of Jagriti were really awesome and we enjoyed it to the brim ( Afterall a break from studies is always welcomed by us ) . Now what ? Back to studies ? Obviously , semesters are approaching . But before going back to the same old routine , we decided to celebrate the last study-free days in our own way . Someone coined an idea of invading the roads of Delhi right through the night , until Sun appears to end the party . Everyone agreed and slowly but surely , after a few arrangements , we had nine bikes and twenty engineers ready to take off .

Warden allowed us to leave the campus on the condition that we won’t return until the broad daylight . We were not in much of a hurry anyway . First thing first , it was made sure that petrol tank of all the bikes were more than filled with the fuel . But the things didn’t went exactly as planned . A puncture in the back tyre of one of the bikes ( and that too , twice 😦 ) delayed our caravan by one hour . As a result , we wereIndia Gate not able to enter New Delhi until 1’0 clock . But as they say , better late than never . Once in the capital , we were flying towards our first and foremost destination . No points for guessing . India Gate .

No doubt India Gate is a wonderful piece of architecture . Its beautiful . You could actually look at it continously for a day or two and still want to have a better look at the masterpiece . While we were parking our bikes , we were surprised to see a noticeable number of people gathered near India Gate , this late at night ( or should I say , early in the morning) . Guess what !!! On our way towards India Gate , we heard someone shout “Lights…Camera…Action” . There was a shooting in progress . It was Pankaj Kapoor shooting for his upcoming movie “Office Office” . Never ever a trip to India Gate was so exciting . A salute for India gateSoon enough , after the pack up , it was time for us to click a pose . Snaps for every possible angle were captured and after admiring India Gate for some time , we were back to the roads of the capital .

Our next spot was the famous Gurudwara at Bangla Sahib . After washing my hands and feet , when I entered the place , I was spellbound to see how beautiful the Gurudwaara looked amidst the lake . I have never been to a Gurudwara before . So obviously , it was a moment to remember for me . We stayed there for about an hour . It was so relaxing and a lovely feeling staying there . All the headache which was caused by the numerous mishappenings caused at the Sky Fest had gone by now .

On the roads again . We took care to avoid any police car patrolling the roads . Many of the guys didn’t had the license + many bikes had papers missing + few bikes without the rear view mirror + three bikes were enjoying tripling + few of us were without helmet as well . Enough reasons for the cops to gift us fine . But lucky we were , as we did not experience any such misfortune . Making our way from the Red Fort to Rajghaat , Feroz Shah Kotla to Cannaught Palace , finally we were back in hostel at around 6 A.M.

Last night was one to remember . Riding on the empty roads of Delhi , with the peers , all night long was an experience of lifetime .

  8. “Many of the guys didn’t had the license + many bikes had papers missing + few bikes without the rear view mirror + three bikes were enjoying tripling + few of us were without helmet as well .”
