When Angrez-log i.e., not the firang Angrez, but people who study the Angrez language, have crime fiction, they die. This death is called 'soocayde', as they told us in Sholay.

We did this to ourselves. We read books that are actually histories of the time-tables of trains in rural England. Thus the book is a red herring. It is not the real thing, Ms. Dorothy L. Sayers.

And the rest is silence.

P.S. If the Don doesn't offer History, Literature and Criticism then Nandita and I have planned to enact the famous scene on the ledge. We will call him Mausaji and shed gallons of genuine tears. His heart will melt and we will study Ideology. Life is such a bed of roses.

P.P.S. If the Don still doesn't agree, then I think it will be suicide. Not soocayde. And someone will have to do much chakki-peesing as divine retribution.

I'm with you on the persuade-Don-to-offer-course-with-tears-and-whatever-necessary bid. Even though I'm done with Cluster C. Apparently it's a course really, really worth taking. Or sitting in for, as the case may be.
Plus ami ektao SKC course korini. Time to remedy that!

Hahaha, I have my dream combination. One A, one B, one C. I'll be doing Detailed Study of a Shakespeare play, Fallen Women and Novel and Modernity. And plis. Whatever new courses you request for, don't change the ones already up there.

Ahona: Yes. Soocaaaide it is if Don does not offer course. We will also organize a screening of the tanki scene of Sholay in the AV Room before the ledge act for the benefit of those who have not seen Sholay (on second thoughts, we can jolly well push them off the ledge for not having seen the film).
Aar tui Mausaji bolish, ami shudhu flutter eyelids and blush korbo kintu, ok bon?

Prayag: Go fug yourself with the carrot or the turnip or whatever it is. grr. Dare not laugh at our predicament, I will make you cry tears of blood in 29!!!

Bleh. I have Detailed Study of a Shakespeare Play, Age of Enlightenment and Novel and Modernity.

Let me know if you're able to persuade him.
