200 bUckS fOr A mISsINg TeEtH...


Our training was running behind schedule.Nine months training was going to take thirteen months. This made us very impatient and intolerable. There were frequent fights in the barrack on silly issues. Ninetyfive percent of the cadets became alcoholics. At night the barrack turned into a zoo. It was impossible for a normal person to stay in barrack at night. There were two prominent alcoholics. One was Debashish and the other was priyabrata. They used to drink together every night and at the end Priyabrata used to kick Debashish. This was a regular scene at night. Every night was a nightmare for the non drinkers. There was one guy called Rajiv who was a non drinker. He was tall around 6.3'' in height. His bed timing was 9.30PM. This was the time when the drinkers party starts. Rajiv used to sleep with his full body covered by a light blanket. On one such night , time was around 1230 at night..Party was at its peak..I pushed the earphones deep into my ears and raised the volume of my walkman. Still the partying noises and screams made its way into my eardrums. I turned and saw priyabrata dancing on Rajivs bed. With his head covered Rajiv was pretending to be asleep. I was thinking when this training will end. Rajiv might have thought the same.. Atlast Praiyabrata was tired and sat on his bed with a cigarette in his hand. He was now teasing Rajiv and passing dirty comments about his family. I turned and tried to sleep as someone switched of the lights. Suddenly there was chaos in the room. Priyabrata was screaming. The lights were switched on and we were all shocked . Rajiv was sitting on top of Priyabrata's chest and he was hitting Priyabrata very hard. Take this @#*@#@ you were asking for it were'nt you Rajiv said. Some of Rajiv's bed mate intervened and separated the two. The next morning Priyabrata found one of his teeth missing. He complained to Rajiv that he hit him so hard that he lost one teeth. Rajiv searched his poket and handed him RS 200 and said "Go to a Dentist and fix it up".

People at Barracks are not serious souls as they are thought to be. How they spend their nights and their partying are very interesting.

What a massive blow that was!But the very next day both were seen together at Abhijit Bar.And a source said that it was Rajib who paid the bill because Priyobrato threatened him to report the matter to his parents otherwise,and as all we know how obident Rajib was towards his parents:-)
