where do books that were forgotten in autos go?

1. last night i dreamt that the bhelpuri man outside college was using pages of my dolls house, neil gaiman to wrap Rs. 10 bhelpuri in. it was so scary, i woke up and drank a glass of water.

2. i imagined while doodling in class that the daughter of the auto uncle in whose auto i left my 3rd semester notebook in was studying from my extensive and brilliant political science notes, while admiring my highly creative geometric designs on the side of every page and laughing at the conversations i had in class. while doing so, she also stuck the spongebob squarepants card that said "you're a star!" in her dad's auto. and then, and then, i would see this card in an auto and exclaim that it's mine, and get that notebook back.

3. my sixth sem notebook is a sad story. there's nothing exciting in it, except, well, democratic socialism. which is really sad, because i don't get it from the text book i have. i feel like i've turned into some geek.

4. haroun and the sea of stories, flowing beautifully out of my hot water tap, with batcheat singing in her ugly voice like a siren in the night.

similarly, where do phones left in autos go?
i am now the proud owner of 5 (yes, FIVE) volumes of the sandman (4,6,8,9,10).
chances of you finding the note book are about 3 in 500,000

theres a new gaiman book out, called interworld. classic must read ( and the usual spiel)

you could buy it, it is the third best (IMO, 9 and 7 are better), and itll probably be worth something someday

you and leaving things in the auto..is it a hobby or a full time profession?

Sita said...

aus: currently only a hobby.. but you know, i was thinking, if i started an auto lost and found, i'd be my biggest customer.

Have you ever considered the possibility that your books/cellphones might have disintegrated/melted under the numerous farts of other auto passengers?

i used to doodle eyes in all my books so that if someone stole them, they would meet with dirty stares!!! serious!

stop travelling by autos. Take buses.

i like mediocrity. its a good state to be in: static, inertial and you never need to work hard to get there.
peace!
ps: why doesnt it allow me to post this comment below the mediocrity post?

Sita said...

sharan: because i disallowed comments for that post. :)

Sita said...

mahati: i don't think so.. but it has been two months since i've stayed in college long enough for lunch. cruel, it is, if it's true though.. that ragda samosa, i'm tellin' ya!
