Schadenfreude

November 07, 2008

I just learned that my room mate in the first year of engineering has become a samiyaar (ascetic/monk/whatever). Last i heard he was in the US of A doing some sort of PhD.

This is the guy who wouldnt pay his share of the newspaper bill (he always claimed he didnt read it) and would then try to claim his share when i sold the old newspapers to pazhaya paper guys!!!. They (there was a whole gang like him) had their own reality - they had a whole racket going on - every day they would borrow " just 10 rupees" for lunch from every tom,dick and harry in the hostel and then disappear for days to their local relatives' places. I would be left to answer the constant stream of creditors turning up at the room trying to get their 10 rs back. And he is now a monk!!. Life... man.. just when you think you have heard it all...
