The tale of the missing Book.

Here i am back with a yet another Mad-ras University leelai as promised earlier. MU had taken madness and monopoly too new level altogether. This post of mine is a testimony to that. If there are things in this world which are hard to come by , this one will top the list. No the book is not a best seller novel not even sold in fact. It's my first year English poetry book. You get to ask every day and get a same reply " It's on its way will be back in a week".

One day me and my friend embarked on this journey to solve this mystery.  Finding this book is like finding dead sea scrolls.it is like running treadmill you can run for hours and still be in the same place. We chose not to go that far but to search in our locality.

Time: 1st year of my college life 2007.
Place: Ranganathan street, Chennai.

Me: Dei i want buy the symphony book can you accompany me?

Frnd: Ok i want to buy it myself lets go.

Me: I don't think we will get this book here.

Frnd: Lets put the weight on GOD and ask.

Me: Sir do you have symphony book?

Shop keeper 1: ( after searching and showing off) No, its not supplied yet.

Me: When can we expect the book?

Shopkeeper 1:  In a week we will have the stock.


   You know what shopkeepers follow the saying " never say never" a little too seriously. It can be detrimental if you are searching for a book like this. They also never will say can we bill it of course they don't bill. They always ask " what do you want next",  want you to buy more from them.

Frnd: Sir do you have symphony book?

Shopkeeper 2:  No sir it will take about a month. ( now a week has turned into a month, which effectively means no.)

Frnd: Sir you have symphony?

Shopkeeper 3: what symphony this is not music shop.

Me: Hopeless, God save these people!

Frnd: dei we are really doomed.

Me: Sir you don't have symphony book, right.

Shopkeeper 'n': Yes how do you know that?

Me : the stock will be available in a week, right.

Shopkeeper 'n':  Then why did u ask.

Me: Simply testing.

Frnd: Now what we have searched 'n' number of shops still no sign of it.

Me:  I have an idea, search that 'n+1' shop

Frnd: dei i will kill you !!!

Me: Hey don't jump into any conclusion. We go into that 'n+1' shop ask for guide who needs that stupid book.

Frnd: ya right.

Me: we can piss these guys often asking for the book and dont buy that.

Frnd: I am with you in this hahahahaha.....................

   We later learned that the book was not sold elsewhere except for the Madras University near the Beach and a few others places out of our reach. We regularly piss off the shopkeepers now and then, still no change in the reply same standard eternal " will be here soon ".


Time : 3rd year of my college life 2009.
Place: Station road, Mambalam, Chennai.

Me: Sir do u have Symphony Book.

Shopkeeper X ( sorry lost count): ( searching for it as though it always existed) Sir i think the stock is over.

Me: (whispering to frnd) dei this time new reply, he thinks we are fools. the stock is over. where was the stock in the first place.

Frnd:  heheheheheh.......

Shopkeeper X : what sir?

Me: Nothing when will it come.

Shopkeeper: In about a week.

Me: hahahaha...... ok  sir.

 We started this when we got into college, we will be out of it in a year now. Still we haven't seen any change except for the reply, this time they say they have stock but got sold out and expects us to believe it. Who cares if you have guide books flooding the market. May be MU has struck some deal to increase their sales. You will never no what happens next with MU. So guys i tee off and  will be back with some other leelai next time.

42 blesses 'n' curses:

It is a shame that the once illustrious Madras University has been reduced to such a model of corruption and incompetence. They focus on unnecessary details like telling students what to wear to college instead of focusing on academics. Really pathetic.

Venky,

You can give the advice to your mates and juniors... they'll also make the enquiry and have a good pastime (but perhaps you should tell 'em the book is not avbl so they realise it is just pastime. lol).

Your similes are quite different and your sense of humour is warm too with a dash of localism which is always entertaining.

Thanks for pointing out the typo in my blog. Cheers! Good eve :)
