Aloo.............



After a summer vacation of about 75 days i came back to roorkee...the train journey from hyderabad to delhi was good but from delhi to roorkee the train was crowded and no one cares to check the tickets and people sit where ever they want......and it was also kawad season....so it was even more crowded....after getting down quickly at the roorkee railway station (as the train halts for a couple of minutes only)and taking a rickshaw to rajendra bhawan...i was in deep thought thinking about what they were going to serve today in mess....thinking about the mess the first thing to strike my mind was...ALOO.....before coming to iit roorkee i never though that many varieties can be made out of aloo...whenever i go home my mom asks me what to cook i say "anything but aloo".....i used to like aloo a lot....it was one of my favourite...i used to like aloo fry a lot.....now i realise that i didnt ask my mom to make it that often coz it had aloo in it....the first day when i went to the mess to eat dinner i was hoping against hope that there would be no aloo....but to my utter disappointment there it was......huge aloo pieces in some orangish gravy(refer to pic above)
.....i had no other option but to put it in my plate along with 2 different varieties of dals and there was something special that day too a fried karela.....yes u read it right a fried karela.....
first they put some stuffing into it and then dipped it in some paste(mixture of water and some flour)and then deep fried in oil.....once i had visited the great kitchen of our mess......dat night i could not sleep....everything was so filthy and crude....dey did not hav the cutting edge technology in the messes atleast......they tell they have it in their departments don't know about that but definitely not in the messes....having eatin another meal of aloo n chapati i walk back to my room thinking what will be my situation at the end of four yrs of aloo diet.....???will i ever want to eat aloo again???if the messes in iit roorkee r supposed to be the best among all iits then what is the situation of people in other iits?????....and will i be able to sleep tonite with all these thoughts in my head.......?????T
his is my first blog s ppl plz giv me some advice and after reading it plzzzzz comment and tell me how i can make it better.........

The part where you said that you did not get sleep was entertaining. I dont have much to say, because your opinions coincide with mine on this matter.

@suren
i too got a similar feeling when i read it a couple of months after posting it...it was way back in august 2006 i had my first tryst with blogging.....i was inexperienced and wrote a blog..i was too curious to write one :D ....now i am kind of experienced after reading loads of blogs(thanks to the blogging phenomenon which has many of my friends blogging these days)...will surely incorporate your suggestion in my future posts :)

Hey its really a pitiable situation that u ppl got vexed with ur fav food after going to college...
and I think it's everywhere same like this.. making aloo the main ingredient for every recipe...even in our hostel also same situation previously and we've approached our incharge regarding this condition and bcz of our collective effort, now we have a new mess and food is nutritious compared to the previous so,..try it this way which we've done....and u shud eat healthy to think better naa???

@Lydia
we actually organised a mass bunk of the mess for a day to show our displeasure on the kind of food which they serve...(in our first year)...they promised to fulfill our demands but after a couple of days it was back to normal again :( ...so i guess students have stopped wining about it after getting accustomed to this diet like the standard of the professors here,academic system,etc..to name a few..and the nutritious food is generally taken from our canteens and/or hotels to make us think better ;) ...but i completely agree with you on the fact that they should provide better food!! :)
