So lets start again but first the same old statement: all characters in this story are completely fictional and resemblance with anyone should be considered a mere coincidence. After getting rid of all the formalities lets just look back of where we are, we just went through one day and three attempts made by Chi to talk to Cha. But first day was not the right day, having said that whats the sign of right day? Does it have anything special, does it differ from other days? I would like to hear your views on this. For now lets go back to day 1, Chi submitted the challan, and went to see in which section was Cha in, even though he didn’t know which section he was in? Such is the excitement of love, it changes life you don’t know what you are upto, but you always want to know what the other one is upto , close to notice board where the detail of section was posted, with his fingers crossed he looked for Cha and it didn’t took too long as she was in section B, however looking at entire section B he could not find his name, his heart sink and was not very happy, being in section E was a mere consolation for him. So next job for Chi was to find where Section B class room would be and can he find someone with whom he can be good friend.

So he comes back to hostel find few people who happen to be in Section B and few in E. New day in college time to make new friends, in the mean time Cha happens to get along well with Rita Gupta, who happens to be the heart throb of the batch and in a gender skewed engineering college she was the one who will get a lot of attention. She happens to be in Section A, it so happens that section A and B are next door to each other and other 4 section happens to be away. It’s important to know the location cause it will help you understand the situation better. After a long day and a good rest both Cha and Chi excited to attend the class and give there best shot in class. Butterfly in stomach and excitement in heart and determination do better are some of the trait that you start your engineering year with, it happens to disappear soon with guys and grows strongly in gals which you will see in story very soon.

Chi before going to his classroom deliberately with guys of section B to understand where there class room is and like a typical engineering student started the trend of arriving into classroom after the teacher arrives. On the other hand Cha was accompanying Rita as they have found a good chemistry together on Day one itself. First few lecture passed and with every minute close to launch the excitement in Chi was growing and now was his moment to talk which he wanted to do during last 3 attempt, nervousness crept but he was trying to calm himself down. The moment lecturer left the class he was out and away, not worried who was calling and where his company was heading. He knew where he was heading, but the moment he reached there room was empty the class left early and he was late. Just when he was disappointed and was leaving he saw her standing and waiting for someone around the corner. You and I know that she was waiting for section A to leave so that Rita and she can go together, Cha completely unaware thought that he was noted in his last 3 attempts and he had a ray of hope that now that she noted it would give him a confidence to talk to her. So not to make it too obvious for Cha, Chi went to Cha and asked if she saw which direction Abhishek left, obviously he did not want to make it too obvious that he wanted to talk to her.

Cha (nervous but looking straight into eyes of Chi): He is your friend you should know it, how will I know where he is? However the class ended early and everyone left 10 mins back.

Chi (taken aback by the response and a lot more nervous now): Oh ok. (Looking here there thinking of what now to do, how to start conversation, ideas dry quickly in such adverse conversation)

Cha was looking straight into the eyes which was making Chi nervous but she knew very well that its not Abhishek he is after, and her suspicion was that Chi was after Rita. She wanted to save her friend from strangers and wanted to avoid unnecessary trouble for Rita so decided to start the conversation and direct Chi away quickly. But there was something in Chi’s eyes that made Cha to know more about him. Was it the trigger that both of them were holding or was it something different.

Chi (stammering and mumbling): so, are you…

Cha (cutting the conversation short): I think you are talking about the tall Abhishek, right, I think he went that way.

Chi (utterly annoyed and disappointed, eyes trying to say more but the words not coming out and with the kind of response from Cha, he had no more scope of talking). Ya ok thanks for your help. If you need any help do let me know bye.

Such was nervousness within both end and yet both of them wanted to see each other atleast once more. Chi decided this was not the right time and he should fall back, he needs to be better prepared. As soon as Chi turned back and started walking away, section A dispersed and people were coming out. Cha wanted to ensure if Chi was after Rita or not. Chi decided to make sure what was Cha upto and what was she doing there so decided to stick there with some of the new made friends. Cha left with Rita and Chi clearly understood that if he has to be more confident and understand Cha better he better get some help from Rita. So with this clear plan he decided he will make a better come back where he is better prepared.

That evening Chi decided to go to library, to his luck he saw Rita there. He thanked god and his luck that its not all that bad, luck is favouring him. So he bravely went and saw Rita, compared to Cha the conversation was way too smooth and confident. However he was not aware that his conversations were monitored by 2 people one Cha who was watching Rita and Cha from one corner and Virus aka (Viramani U S). Virus was head of the department once and while he was the head, one of the student committed suicide because she was harassed verbally by a guy with whom she broke up sometime back. Virus being Head had to resign and give up his post, however he made a pledge that he would ensure no such mistake happens ever again. His method to ensure that it never happened was to catch guys and girls talking together and take a picture of them and put them on notice board. For him he was naming and shaming them in public, but for students it was a warning and if he finds it out again he may go to Deans and request action against you. Having said that prior batches have found a method to escape this punishment by either meeting girls at temple or outside college campus. With just second day in college a lot was to be learned about the system and its work around.

Chi calmly talking with Rita, without knowing the dangers, surrounding him. He started with intro, place , department, section and exam ranks, just when he thought it was the right time to ask about Rita’s friend, in comes Virus, yelling Hey you 2 boy and girl, (a very loud voice in not so loud library corridor took both by surprise) Chi looked around and to his surprise he could not find any other boy and girl standing together and he soon realised that call was for him. Before he could react and say anything Virus was over his head, grabbing him by the shoulder. I am talking to you, did you not hear me. Chi nervous no sir, I did not see you.

Virus (crooked smile): Do you know who I am?

Both (nervous): No sir

Virus (sealing the authority) I am Viramani, professor of ECE department, and do you know why I stopped you?

Both (even more nervous) : No sir

Virus (taking out his camera): Stand there I will tell you why.

Both (completely clueless of whats happening stood where they were asked to without knowing what will happen next and why is he taking out camera) Yes sir.

Click from a camera and photo of 2 were taken, both taken aback not knowing what is going around, even more nervous.

Virus: Next time I see you both of you together other than anything to do than studies, I may take action against both and you too need to provide justification of what you were doing in library corridor and is this the place to talk with girls?

Chi: No sir we just met and we were from nearby place to just introducing each other.

Virus (not expecting a response and thought the threat was enough was surprised): Are you from same place? Are you in same department?

Chi : No sir

Virus: Did you introduced yourself to everyone that you met, do you know every guy in your year?

Chi (soon realising that he is making a mistake extending the conversation and fear of getting any action on Day 2 decided to retreat) No sir, sorry sir, wont happen again.

Rita quietly watching everything and almost in tears, for her it was a moment of shame. Cha watching everything quietly from the corner, thought her suspicion was true, Chi is after Rita and she needs to protect Rita from any more misery in coming days. The moment Virus turned back and Chi ensuring he is gone, Rita was pulled away and taken outside by Cha without a word being exchanged. By the time Chi turned his back, Rita was gone ,he looked around and could not find anyone.

So attempt by Chi to get in touch with Rita to find about Cha went to vain, both Rita and Chi photo was on notice board and the news of both of them together caught by Virus spread in entire campus like a wild fire. Cha even more confident that Chi was after Rita and in coming days would try to get in touch with Rita or her soon. Seniors who didn’t even met there juniors were appalled to see that such incident has taken place and were not even more curious to meet both Chi and Rita.

With so much happening and in 2 days 5 attempts to talk to Cha failing miserably and no concrete communication established it was clear its going to be rough ride for Chi in coming days and getting in touch with Cha would require some special effort, some magic. On the other hand Cha was convinced that she needs to be around Rita to avoid any more trouble coming on her. I am sure this story has taken enough twist and turns and is way different from what movies show college life to be. But my next question how will this confusion go away. Will they get to know each other in next episode. Please do keep reading and do live a comment and let me know if you liked it or not. Till then enjoy this song and
