[This post should make our good old Notary and Anoop sit up and take notice. I miss our badminton days guys.]

Our campus is strategically located – in Andheri (West). There’s everything you might possibly require, close by. Malls, multiplexes, temples, restaurants, and bazaars, you name it and it’s there. There’s even the humongous Andheri Sports Complex right across the road. Unfortunately, we had not used this facility till yesterday, when Vinayak and I decided to play a game of Badminton. We ended up playing five games in fact. The compulsion behind this exercise was Vinayak, who was slowly but surely turning out into a 747 Megatop (you might have seen one of these with Singapore Airlines)! Now, we’re hooked. We’ve decided to play twice or thrice a week. There’s an incentive to play well – the loser needs to buy the winner that evening’s dinner.

Things really turned out worse for me. The 747 Megatop in the making beat me 3 games to 2! [Notary, I don't want to hear any nostalgic jokes from you.] Yesterday’s dinner was on me.

I think it should be the other way around. The winner should buy dinner for the loser to make him feel beter :)
