The season of colours and 'bhaang' is on and this is when all the newly grown-ups want to experiment with life. So here's a little something that I'd like to share from my personal experience.
2 years ago, I was such an inquisitive child who wanted to try everything new, well almost everything. So that's when I decided to have the infamous bhaang with my friends on Holi. Because that's how we defined our coolness! *Face palm*
The thought of it was quite enthralling. Almost everything that was ever portrayed in front of me compelled me to give those 'bhaang thandai shots' a chance like I was having Jagger bombs!
I had 5 back-to-back shots and it was nothing next to what those Bollywood movies had ever shown, that I had grown up watching!
Nonetheless, this was and is the reality, my friends.
Note: The girl shown in the cover photo is not the one this story is about.
I couldn't feel a thing for at least an hour. There was absolutely nothing that was happening to me and right in front of me was my best friend who was hyper and paranoid for no reason at all.
But what they say is true, you don't really know what's what until it happens to you!
(And that's when the good part ended for me)
'What just happened?" - My exact words when it hit me.
It was a high that I would never be able to forget in my entire existence. That was when everything around me turned slo-mo and I was pretty new to such sort of a high.
TBH, I almost pooped in my pants. No kidding.
She was a guide through and the only person I didn't want to let go off because she knew what's going to happen to me next.
Because experience matters.
And the only way that was happening was because of people talking to me or listening to some EDM otherwise I wouldn't have come back to reality!
...And that I took 2 long mins only to say "Hello"
Thinking about it now, it was really funny how things were making me paranoid. But back then, it scared the s#!t out of me!
My girlfriends were asking me if I'm okay, and there I was feeling molested by them. SMH.
The world had lost its colour and everything seemed like a B&W classic movie.
A movie about me having no clue about anything!
Every sip of water was evaporating at the speed of light and no, I'm not even kidding.
I didn't want to hog at all, but I definitely needed a nap for as long as I could.
Next thing I knew was that I only wanted to go to sleep instead of anything else in the world, I just wanted to escape from the reality that seemed merely unrealistic.
The struggle was real!
One thing I promised myself was that never will I ever do this to myself again.
I'd rather stick to alcohol or nothing at all! Rest everything else is absolute moh-maya.
I'm done experimenting extra-terrestrial highs!
