Mood Indigo 2011

What is IIT Bombay’s Mood Indigo? Is it really as big as all the hype surrounding it? I decided to find out along with some buddies from college. This is an account of my first visit to a college fest outside my college. I feel that experiences should be big – so I decided to make it no less than the biggest college cultural fest of Asia (at that time). I had a rather interesting train journey from Bangalore to Mumbai but I guess I’ll leave out that story for another time.

It was a 24 hour journey. So I pick up my Nokia 2700 and start writing. A lot of thoughts rush into my head looking at the landscape rushing by.

Hanumangundi falls, Karnataka

The first really exciting thing to happen in the fourth semester of engineering was the trip to Hanumangundi Falls. It was only the first weekend back from home and I was expecting a quiet one. However it wasn’t to be.
