Nostalgia Nugget: Making Faces

Artwork: By author

We used to have a common Freshie’s night in LT for all hostels, in which freshers exhibited various skills .

I was  asked to do a skit. I was scared of being booed out or being sprayed with paper arrows, which was a norm then.  When my turn came, I went on the stage and drew few female faces at lightening speed (needed only 30-40 seconds to do them) to not allow anyone to even aim an arrow at me!  I followed it with a short explanation which went like this: “Presenting you with something that is in great demand: “Female faces!” Incidentally, those were the days of severe drought of female faces on the campus!

To my pleasant surprise, I got a loud applause in lieu of boos and arrows.
