213. Joseph Pius Alapatt

The series of posts on my friends starts from today

June 2nd 2004... I joined my MBA program and stepped inside my hostel room. I was waiting eagerly to see who my roomie would be.After three hours a car zoomed inside the hostel and a guy with a french beard stepped out of the car.

He walked into my room and extended his hand and said," Joseph Pius Alapatt" from Trissur.Nice to meet you. We exchanged pleasantries and thus began our friendship. The first month, he spoke very few words and I indeed thought he was a professional philosophical genius. But things broke loose and soon we figured out that there is a kid inside him. If the name AMBANI is famous in India, the name ALAPATT is equally famous in Kerala.

Joseph was the heart throb among the girls in college. But the shy devil in him never allowed him to get closer with the members of the fairer gender.When it comes to decision making, he is one amazing guy. He speaks in english with beggars.His initial philosophical one liners which caught our attention and made us all look at him with respect soon drained out and inturn became the butt of jokes in college.

He talks very less. All his answers are one liners.Because he actually doesn't know to talk much( We found it very late). But it sure makes us all laugh.Some of his one liners are given below.

ASS you like it

This snap was taken during his morning walk. When asked why he always jogs alone, his answer was," You got to run your own race"

When it comes to drinking, he is a camel. Alcohol should not be restricted within the walls of the container

His caption to the above snap is,"The book shelf is empty.. Why should I have books in the shelf when the BOOK himself is sitting infront of the bookshelf?"

"Preparing for the Journey.. Miles to go before I fly"

I indeed had a great college life and this guy was one of the major reasons for it. After spending a couple of years in the banking field, he is off to Bahrain for good. Will meet him when he ties the knot. BTW, This is his latest photo
