Bang Bang

The chase for an absconding murderer ends right outside the gate of my alma mater, and the man is gunned down in an encounter.

This is not fair. Nothing exciting happened outside the campus gate when we were there. :(

Well, that's not true really. This guy who ran the UTI branch in our campus was held up at gunpoint and relieved of several doubloons. Since he was the typical babu who was rude to us, and took an hour off for lunch even when the timings for his branch were 11:30-1:30 and we had classes until 1. The news of his stick-up brought a lot of mirth to campus.

But nothing like a shootout after which a hindi channel's correspondent sticks a mic under your mouth and says "Aapke institute ke saamne ek khooni ko maar giraya gaya. Aapko kaisa lag raha hai?"
