Fortress Eden(Day one)
There were lots of hustle and bustle in the Eden for the past few
weeks. The G-ians were all bubbling with anticipation for this very day. The
reasonto be the center of attraction among the hungry eyes.
Right after puja vacations the girls brought with themselves bags bigger than their
sizes stuffed with loads of clothes and shoes. Few days back they were again seen raiding
the boutiques in Naharlagun feasting their eyes on designer wear. Many came back
satisfied, happy with their purchases and eager to put on the newly acquired possession.
They were also the victims of the envious glances of the ones who will have to do with the
old ones. For those who did not get to buy anything new: CHEER UP GALS ITS ONLY NERIST
Deepawali night is not only a night of lights, sweets, crackers but also of accidents
as it happened here on the festive night. Girls were so excited throwing crackers on the
rowdy guys from the enemies camp, that they forgot the uneven grounds on the terrace
and fell down-THUMP!!! Many were injured with broken limbs, swollen eyes, muscle cramps
but thankfully nobody was burnt. Among the casualties were Mahriati, Saka, Naobi Sena. A
special thanks to the 2000 girls as for the first time fortress Eden was brightly
illuminated. Inspite of all, the atmosphere in the Eden was joyous and there was a feeling
of togetherness and love.
The organizer girls were full of promises and plans to cooperate with each other in the
beginning. Alas! Promises are made to be broken. Many went off in search of adventures and
meditation in the hills, the others simply backed off. Could be they find the heat of
RACAF too overbearing. WE wonder??? There are also girls who want to help everywhere but
not doing anything exactly. THANX anyway for just being there. Every night sharp at 9:00
PM (mind you- sharp at 9:00 PM), the Eden hall starts echoing with music of "Satyam
shivam sunderam" and "Sur"the girls dancing to its tune. On the other
hand, the galleries were filled up with girls walking down the tune of English numbers led
by Saka and Zesela in torn jeans and hot pants. The other boarders were busy practicing
for their respective block events. Nisha even set her alarm clock to 9:00 PM along with
Rachel(98)and Smriti to practice dance in the open air. Manideepa and Rachel(96) seems to
have attacks of dizziness and nausea every time there is a dance practice. We think they
dont eat the nutritious food from the mess. The result- many dance steps were
changed due their royal inconvenience. Behind all this is a group of girls also known as
bookworms. They dont seem to be interested in any activity. This is for
you-"ALL WORK AND NO PLAY MAKES JANE A DULL GIRL". Yesterday when most of the
boarders were busy practicing and working for RACAF, Chitralekha and Banani had their own
personal dress-rehearsal. Both of them had put on make-up and were trying dresses to be
worn during the college week. Just a few days back Chitralekha had vowed that she will not
join RACAF this year. Do we hear you correct?
The spirit of RACAF goes on and on.. and
it is indeed a pleasant feeling to be the fair one. Every one is so very excited and
enthusiastic. Girls are so conscious of their figure and beauty that they will go to any
extent to maintain their statistics. Every now and then we hear them complaining about
their extra flesh and bony structure. Recently the G-correspondents, were informed of the
newly formed organization called the PETLOO ASSOCIATION of NERIST( PAN) with its
head as Miss. Mallika Das, vice-president as Miss. Tribeni Das. It seems that the Das-ians
have voluntarily come forward to hold this esteem post. The members are as follows
Chandabani Dutta, Kasturika, Sharmita, Ketousie, Barnali Sharma, Bratati, Payal Sen,
Urvashi, Sanjukta Singh, Sukanya, Mahriati, Aparna etc. every month they have a
general body meeting where they discuss on various issues such as- improvement achieved
during the past months like weight loss and gain submitted in written. A precise
measurement of the waist is also given. Beauty tips are also discussed during the sitting.
Sometimes, specialists are invited to balance their psychological and emotional traumas.
The association also offers numerous facilities. It has provision for weighing and
measurements plus a designer is hired who does the monthly stitching and re-stitching. The
external affairs minister of the association is Miss Sylvia (ex-NERIST momo wrestler), who
is at present attending a summit in Indonesia. Inspired by PAN, another association came
up collaboration with the counterparts of PAN members. The organization is named ANOREXIA
NERVOSA ASSOCIATION of NERIST(ANAN) which is headed by Miss Jill Marak, with
vice-president as Miss. Tage Rita. The other members includes Supriya, Sandeepa, Zesela,
Tripti, Olivia, Sabita Sarkar, Connie, Ahruaii, Thartei, Kimboi etc. The motto of the
association is "health is wealth". The members even after devouring all possible
nutrients are yet to show any improvements. Recently, the Nirjuli market ran out of stock
of Ghee and butter. Thanx to the ANAN!! they have sittings where every member of the
association comes up with sumptuous food items. They strictly avoid dry-fish and chilies
as they have strong belief that these items cause loose-motion and may bring indignity to

Time and again our simple and innocent life is invaded. We are swept through emotional
waves every time a guy showers us with all the attention and care in the world. We fall in
an impasse to decide whether his feelings are genuine or not? Here, let us help you. Ten
very good reasons why you should not fall in love in NERIST:
Now what girls? There is a big life ahead of you. Life is like a
chocolate box, you must try all the chocolates in it. With determination and
self-confidence you can cross the biggest oceans on your own and best of all you will make
- love is one big illusion-specially here. It does not last long and at the end you will
be the loser.
- time is at stake. You will have to spend your precious time and energy roaming around
with him and it does hamper your studies which is your first priority.
- you lose the image of being independent and free. Depending on a guy is the last thing
on your mind.
- you become prone to opinionated talks and gossips
- guys out here are very narrow-minded, snobbish, egotistical, pompous and braggart,
getting involved with one will lead to many social bindings and limited friends.
- you will have to cook delicacies on almost every occasion amidst all discomfort and
inconvenience and of course wash his dirty stinky clothes.
- you become a possession, you will be talked of now and then as a thing bought after a
heavy blow to the so called male EGO.
- it is very easy to get carried away with all those mushy-mushy dialogues (naturally from
the movies) but when the realization strikes you, it will be too late to change things
without damaging your reputation and self-respect.
- guys out here are not at all trustworthy, to realize that his love is just an ephemeral
after all is said and done can be so hurtful that you just stop believing in love.
- you are gonna miss the life that your single friends enjoy-freaking out and doing your
FORTRESS EDEN (Day
Today we bring you the report as given by our faithful spies
spread all over the Eden, Auditorium and the surroundings. Although many inside news were
dig out, many are yet to be uncovered. Among the hottest and spicy ones are the girls
hostels over heard.
- Padmaja on seeing Devika and Neetu groomed in saree while they were going to watch
Mr. NERIST said :"when guys are in chaddi, you people want to go in saree
- during the puja vacation. Manideepa to Chitralikha: "How should I become
Chitralikha: "Cut your hair and stitch new clothes".
The advice was sincerely followed as you can see a new Manideepa
turned into a beautiful SWAN from a ugly duckling. The outcome was frequent phone calls
and dates, no wonder she is known as the queen of Mechanical 96.
Kasturika to Mallika : "final year main sabka affair ho
Mallika (with a sad look): "haan main hi bachi hoon, dua karo
final year mein meri kismat khul jaye".
- Chandabani and Nivedita composed a sher which is based on their Love life
tu nahi to koi aur sahi,
koi aur nahi to koi aur sahi
..to koi aur sahi
- Niharika has finally fall in love. Thanks to Sonaquips ten reasons to fall
in love in NERIST. Yesterday after seeing the message for G-ians her response was :
" kal to Naku ke naam pe message de hi denge".
- early in the morning, Padmaja "main patli ho gayee mera naam PAN main nahi
aaya". According to her three puris is enough to stay fit.
- Sushmita Das has gone into hibernation. She hardly comes out of her Den and has
been real quiet. Hey Sush! What happened ? We really miss your beautiful smile.
- talk of the first years
Well they are THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL. They like to
dress up, make up and freak out. For instance not a single of them missed the Mr. NERIST
contest. They were all so very very dressed up in saree. Actually our spies informed us
that they wanted to see Mac in his underwear. It was Unfortunate for them that he did not
turn up on the stage but it was fortunate for Mac. Our spies also could find out that the
first years are very stingy. They carry only Rs.5 along with them for the function just to
buy a copy of Sonaquips. We are flattered. And they are all head over heels with Mr.
Bhaskar 98 beside other guys. Biraja is the local goonda of the hostel. She is
popularly known as Biru Dada by her chamchas. She also happen to resemble heartthrob
Abhishek Bacchan. NaobiSana is the funniest among their batchmates. Also called Govinda by
her friends, she has loads of amusing stories and jokes. She has the talent to imitate
voices. Chandabani, the chubbiest of them all in not only heavy but also a good dancer,
writer, poet and a clown. Rinki is the most talkative that sometimes when others get fed
up, she even blabbers to herself. Santa is very impressed with Sonaquips. According to
her, if her name does not get publish in this prestigious issue, it will be very shameful.
Well!well Chitralekha has finally broken her vow, yesterday she
was seen in a bridal attire all set to see her BEEEEEST friend Surajit singing on the
stage. Only to be faced by Purbashas open challenge who was seen with Surajits
brother i.e her devar. Anyway, we wish them all the best.
