Given that I come from this college which boasts of perhaps the most uninteresting set of women ever(the men were even more uninteresting, but I was never interested in their being interesting), it is surprising that I still retained the ability to find women interesting after I graduated.

Now, don't get me wrong. I am as rabidly anti-sexist as they come. But when the most interesting conversation that you can have with anyone stops with asking where they come from, and when the women insist on addressing you with honorifics(neenga, vaanga or aap) and they be addressed without honorifics, I guess I didn't have much choice.

Anyways, what is surprising is the sheer impact that various women had on my life in the last eight years.
