The first time I saw him, all I wished for was that he shouldn’t be my room-mate! And bingo, I find him in my room a few days later. Mahesh and me were already there and had taken the side beds. However, things changed dramatically over the next few months and we became much closer, quite literally and publicly as well! Hahaha! I remember getting phone calls about heavy-weight championships in my common room between Mahesh and Pavan (and I would be called to mediate) and that kept a lot of fun in our listless lives. Pavan was also the only official DJ for the now defunct 'Mess Parties' from our batch. BIG PD junta used to be always there for his protection from the unruly crowd (oh maybe not the right subject to broach upon over here). Pavan is one tough looking guy, with a very soft heart. He is one person who would really go out of his way to help you out!
Where do I start with Kiran? We were always cordial to each other, but never really great friends especially in the first semester. He was also quite busy with some interesting women at that point of time. I guess his hospitalization during DCC bought a lot of us together, especially Sanjeev, Divya and me. There is a lot about him that I don’t know, and can’t think of asking as well (some rumours, some facts and some outright lies). Kiran also became an active class photographer once he got his camera (the one seen in his hands) along with Bhavin, by then I had almost stopped using my camera completely. Anyway, by the time we finished our final semester on campus, he had become one of my best friends, if not the closest. He gives a lot to a relationship and that puts him par with a lot of people. I can easily depend on him and ask him for favours (something I hate to do otherwise).
