Maadu - Hari Venky

Maadu - Hari Venky

The name implies everything. He is the Backbone of our class room and has a rare character to withstand anything including large number of insults that he faces in daily life. He is a sapaduholic( foodholic) and munches up everything that comes across him. He has a very rare physique , and incredibly his brain is very small and has much of it covered with food and the restwith a lot of affection for friends ;-) .

Now coming directly to the topic, he is very gooood in cricket and so gooood that he only umpires during the matches (actuallty we dont allow him to play, because if he gets out he does not give the bat back)so we always put him as the umpire by praising him saying that " mache, you only can solve any issues when both teams fight during a match, so please as yu are the best" and as i said he has less brainhe agrees immediately.

At this instance he was sooo excited and the first ball was bowled by Mr.S(http://ribtickle.blogspot.com/2009/04/1gal-ka3.html) . But it was just a sec after the ball was released from his hand and wud not even have reached the batsmanby which Mr.Venky had declared Six. check the Pic. so much for gooood umpiring ;-(

Unfortunately he was in the 4th floor of our hostel and i was right beneath his room, so am one of the victims of Maadu quakes! Whenever there was an announcement for phonecalls for him, the whole hostel used to brace themselves as he wud run(err rather thunder) away to the fone thereby his giant steps can be heard early mornings. Plus when some one brings food of course.

He is an excellent secret keeper and can keep anything within him for a DAY/NIGHT. He comes to me and tells me something and he wud have done the same to the rest of our group,but telling each one not to reveal it to anyone else . Once Karthi did inform Venky that he has been engaged and have not told anyone else and to keep it as a secret. But the next day he had told me and everyone else,the traditional line" dai, yarkitayum solatha, ana.....(please dont tell anyone that.....) . Eventually one of us had asked Karthi and he was aghast !! But some how everyone feels comfy and ends up telling most of thesecret stuff only to him.

    He is best known as Hari Venkatesh B.E , but if yu ask him the abbreviation of BE he will reply promptly as Bachelor Of Education!!!! thats wat he said once when applying for HSMP ;)

There was this gal by name Hema in our college..(Hema if you are reading this , i know yur married, but no harm done!). well, she was more of the cupid side of Venky, at least we used to tease as suchWell why we started teasin him with her is still a unsolved mystery though there are many theroies for that one of them being that both of them belonged to the same batch during practical sessions and it startedthere, but the widely known theory is the "Konjunduu Theory" (A little bit, theory).

Was another day when as usual Hema being a day scholar had bought home made food and Venky as usual was stealing food from lunch boxes, but he eats little from each box to avoid suspicion, he felt Hema's Biryani was soo good and during lunch time, she was eating and he went over to her and asked her some. She did give him,but then after some time as usual he felt so hungry and all she had was a Munch chocolate and so he started to plead to her," Hema Konjunduu hema, Konjunduu..." in a very very mushy and a romantic tone.. not sure if it was for the chocolate or her!! We bet its one stone and two mangoes. He is better known by this widely... ;-)

All these cartoons apart, he is such a caring person and wud risk anything for friends. He can laugh without even a joke and that wud make us double with laughter. He does have another name as "Baby", becauseof his so much of innocence and baby like character. I admire him as such a easy going guy and definitely i wud not lose him at any cost. I have my word on it.

There is however one good foto of me and jaanu(dats how i call him) , which i had to dig to find as there are hardly any decent fotos of us... ;)

There will be a part of this episode so keep watching this space closely for more cartoons ;-)

he he!
I have seen many friends like venky!
They start with "machi,yaartayum solidaatha" and tell the secret and then another such guy will come and open up the same secret!
But i really miss such innocent friends!
