    I have lived in hostels for major part of my life. It was amazing. We used to have photo sessions on Friday nights till wee hours. We used to get into the best attires and have loads of fun. There are innumerable stories that leave us in splits even today. I learned a great deal staying in hostel. I started eating everything without cribbing cz even bad food in hostel was luxury in itself. I also learnt to cook while in hostel.

    Wow, what a way to kick off hostel life - by setting the room on fire, literally!! Now that is a story for the ages! 😉

    I’m glad you got rid of the ‘fire starter’ room mate!;-D
    I’ve never lived away from home, but moved to Bangalore , from Bombay, 3 years ago and I imagine I am experiencing hostel life:))

    Not beem a hostelite, but, like you, have heard about tales like this. 🙂 That sounds like a scary start to life in a hostel, but hope you are in a room with proper curtains now. Very careless of the hostel authorities to neglect that.

    I haven’t lived in a hostel, but I have lived on my own which was somewhat a similar experience. The fire in your room must have really been a nightmare of an experience. Nevertheless, hostel life and living on your own seems worth all the efforts. You make some awesome memories in the process. 🙂

    A similar thing happened to me as well. I was lying in bed reading a book and my roommate had put the iron rod heater for hot water. Don’t know how but it caught fire and the entire switchboard was on fire. Now I couldn’t throw water also on it since it was electricity (thankfully, I had that much sense) and I was the only person inside the room. All the girls were screaming in unison but weren’t ready to do anything (not even call the guard). I somehow came out of the room (the switchboard was near the door) and switched off the mains. That did the trick. However, this incident had shut off the entire building’s electricity and I thought I will be thrown off of the hostel 😛
    Hostel life is fun but can be daunting as well. This post reminded me of so many such incidents. Awesome post, Swathi 🙂

    You girls set your hostel room on fire! That is so filmy! Hahahaha!
    I’ve never lived in a hostel but have stayed in Girls’ PG couple of times. It was fun. Have also shared a rented flat with other girls. That was even more fun.. but yes, it taught us responsibility too.
    Happy AtoZing!

    The fire incident is some experience!! I have lived in a hostel during MBA days. It was fun time and every day was a party. Made some friends for life out there!

    When my aunt used to complain that her kids don’t eat at home, I used to tell her to put them in a hostel 😛
    I’ve been in hostels since I was 16, and I loved that life. It teaches you so much which a sheltered life just doesn’t. And while I never learnt to put out fires, I did learn how to do several things independently. 😀

    I lived in a working women’s hostel for a few weeks and that ended my craze for wanting to live in a hostel. I had loved living as a guest in our ladies hostel during exams in our Engineering college though. It was always fun.
    Loved reading your post, Swathi!

    Never lived in a hostel but I have lived on campus here in Aus for 3 years. It was quite independent in many ways but I shared with three other people. We still cooked our own meals, did our own thing. Having housemates is pretty cool if you get the right one. Otherwise, the psychos are still interesting! 😛

    Your posts take me back in time and give some serious throwbacks! I’m glad you’re safe and things went perfectly fine later. See… everything happens for a reason, right? If the room wouldn’t have caught fire, you wouldn’t have a new roomie.!!

    I was very nervous going into a hostel for the first time when I joined mbbs. But in hindsight, it had some of the best memories of my life. Just as you mentioned, lots of wacky stuff besides the late night chats, maggi dinners, studying rarely, dancing et al.
    PG was in a mixed hostel so that turned out to be an even more unique experience though to be honest, it never really got awkward ever. We got so used to each others presence and sitting up late (or early) and studying

    I have also yearned as a child to go to a hostel and experience the life but that never happened till I moved into a PG when I started working but it wasnt the same for me.

    Glad you fulfilled your dream.
