The first day.....

finally.......... there is one "first day" in my life worth mentionin......well dont ever mistake it with the topic we used to get in college for essays like "my first visit to the ZOO".........
naa...this was a gr8t day....my first (baby) step towards something new and exiting.......The MMB.......if u r wondering if i hav gone out of my mind then to increase a bit of ur knowledge MMB is Max Muller Bhavan......
yes it was the 27th of March 06' ......i was awake by 7:15 (pretty early 4 me durin holidays also otherwise:)......yeh and abha sure must hav cursed me then when she saw me goin past her house on the same day at around 8:15 cos the day before that i was toooo lazy to play some badminton with her in the mornin and now i was all geared up for MMB.........
......as usual i bored a jam packed Pawarnagar Bus(mind u i even waited long for it to come)......which made me way to late to catch a train and thus i landed in the 9:29 thane local not to mention it was not hell but if there is a word in the dictionary then "heller" in the train........
i am sure u'll get pretty bored with just the travellin to MMB but guyz cant help it Lokpuram to CST itself takes 2 loong hours........
......so then where was i ....oh ya the train journey.....many of u must hav guessed it rite that i slept thru the later half (may be more) of the train joueney......10:29 i reach CST and 10:30 my classes begin......now wat do i do? couldnt find any taxi nor bus. so i pretty much walked down the place for 5 mins and caught a taxi (that to on the wrong side).so ther u go i had extened my wait to MMB by a few more mintes now....well finally i got there.............
Abt MMB: its a very well airconditioned buildin of 2 floors(these days the r tryin to save electricity by not switchin on the ACs in the corridors). the learnin centre being on the 2ed floor and resourse center on the first floor.The classrooms in MMB r named after states(land ;))in germany..humburg,funkfurt,munchen,berlin.......
i am asked to enter berlin and for the rest of 7 weeks its my second home{literally i eat ther drink there and at times even take a small nap durin som borin talks;) }
there......the class is full of girls and i am tryin hard to spot some guyz ;) and ya finally i see some 2 or 3 guyz in a class of 26(just kiddin but there r only those many guyz).......oh g8t.......i grab the closet seat (mind u not beside a guy)...........
and ther u go............... abhas one online lecture of how to say good mornin in german comes to aid. Guten Morgen thats how u say it......Mrs.Radhika Nataragan the german mam comes directly to me and blabers somethin in german......the only thing i grasped was "GUTEN MORGAN"and i repy her back.............but wat next? i realise i made a fool out of myself....how?...ok here it is. she said:guten morgen, mine name ist radhika nataragan.......before bein asked the question i staterd off "my naam isst Anandita.".............but well it wasnt that bad ofcourse cos we were all sailin on the same boat so their laughters didnt embarss me a lot.............
ok and then on for the next 1 hour i was..........yeh hav to confess dumbstruck..........she went on blaberin in german and i strained myself to understand it.........that 15 mins break after 1:30 hours was the greatst relief........i the so called stavin "bhukad" of all times(as called by my friends) rushed straight to the canteen and ordered for a sandwich......and now after 15 mins i was full and it was 12:30 so was just tryin to keep my eyelids open........ and did i mention Mrs Radhika's policy is not to talk englich at all in class..all i could say was god help me or rather my col friends who had taken up german help me.............the class ended to be pretty much fun...we were pronouncin the words which we lernt over and over again and never got it rite............finally it was 2.....every one said Tschus n left for the day...........
to my surprise quite a few gals were from thane and even from farther away places so we grabbed a taxi and headed to wards CST.......and ya do u waana again hear the same old story of wat hapnd in the next 2 hrs? and as it goes rest was history...................
all in all a perfect time to shree ganesh some thing new............

Auf Wiedersehen

btw... i can now saw it rite"Mine Name ist Anandita.Ich komme aus Maharastra und ich wohne in Thane." ;)
