I don't want to drink on new year's. Feel like going on a trip somewhere. The idea of new year here is to drink till the morning next day, play loud music and dance. Give vent to all the feelings you hide when you are sober. I did all that last year. In a year i have gotten so used to this routine that i find it unimaginably boring. I am thinking of going to Santiniketan tonight. Don't know anyone there and don't have money to spend on lodging either. So it could be an adventure of sorts. The idea is to travel on local trains as much as possible. S Choudhary has threatened us with a class tomorrow but i don't think that will happen because in all probability he will be drinking at the party too. Tried to make a new year sketch yesterday. Ink spilled on the paper and i ended up with this.
This is from when we went location scouting for the Demo Film project that just got over. Princep Ghat.
This is from one of the locations in Sobhabazar. I loved that place and felt like settling there after my course. The houses there had something like a നടുമുറ്റം. Where the skylight falls in. The house where the shoot took place had sealed it because of privacy issues. People upstairs would be able to see what happened downstairs. This is the stairs of the building which had letter boxes for all the inmates.
I hope the local train plan works out. Want to stay away from campus as much as possible. A dead place, this.
