Actually me and two others volunteered to be ragged in the first day of college. A fourth guy came very unwillingly. Anyways, I pretty much complied with everything they told me to do, which included:
1. Pretending to shoot every passenger in the train compartment with my mini-drafter.
2. Straightening and counting all the hand grips in the compartment.
3. Saluting a tree and then yelling & swearing at it.
4. Proposing to a ceiling fan
5. Walking on train tracks for a certain distance (my rollerskating skills helped here, cuz I was the only one who didn't fall off!)
6. Pretending to be combat troops ambushing a train. Two of us manned the mini-drafter (allegedly light machine guns) post and the other two were behind the other side of the platform lobbing fruit (allegedly grenades)
7. Whole bunch of other crap.... too much to mention here, but it all took around 3-4 hours before they were done with us

I guess we made a good impression (at least the 3 of us who volunteered did) and in the end, we gained the respect of the seniors. They even bought me a drink and bananas after it was all done.

A couple of days later, a group of seniors nabbed a bunch of us freshies in the railway station again. So they lined us up and then suddenly one of them said, "Hey, didn't we rag you two a couple of days ago." So they asked us to step out of line and we did so, fearing the worst (cuz a few guys got beat up the previous day). The next thing the seniors said was, "You guys are really cool. Wish the rest of the crowd was that way. Now you can help us rag the rest of your batchmates!"

When I got to my second year, I didn't really feel like ragging any freshers, but I finally did fall with tradition one day. Nothing exciting really -- there was this young lecturer who taught Engineering Drawing (ED) for first years (he'd actually just graduated from the same college when I joined, so he wasn't that much older than us). Anyways I coached two freshies to walk up to him, bow to him solemly and then say with their best pseudo-chinese dubbed kung-fu movie accents, "Master, master, teach me ED". Then they were to unfold their mini-drafters (a.k.a nunchakus) and perform a kung-fu kata with them (with appropriate Chinese kung-fu sounds) . The poor freshies thought he was another student and so they did exactly what I showed them (and startled the lecturer in the process as well. He was rolling with laughter later ). Imagine their surprise when he showed up next day to teach them their first lesson in ED!

Darn desibaba and netra.. I would headless and ballless if I had ragged you.

I loved the ragging days. We usually had funny yet harmless ragging. No beating etc. Once we mistook our new physics professor as a freshie and took a full ragging of him. Later during physics period he came in to teach us.. we could find no place to hide.. it was hillarious. Needless to say he became one of our best friends.

Without ragging (not the beating/harmful ones) with simple comic stuff.. college would be no fun..

This was one of them..

Bol kahan se paida hua..

The guys refuse to answer
Then we will take away his books.

Now bol kidhar se paida hua

Stammering..

mmma ki chu*D se.

Now we will correct him..

Aise nahi bolte beta.. aise bol

Aadarniyaa maata ke pujaniyaa chu*d se..

Man those days were just fultu tapori fun..

i feel if ragging is done responsibely it could be fun and help u to socialise. It helped to me to get to know a lot of people and that helped me to become cul sec in 3rd year, which by the way was first time when a 3rd year guy could held a cul sec post.

We had students who controlled some extream form of ragging. When i was in 4th year we did not hesitate to rag 2 year students, if they crossed the limits while ragging first year students.


By the way ragging is a non-bailable offence in Bangalore. I guess we had involed in some anti-social activity. but then i was just a youth.. but thinking of all the fun i had ragging people, brings me a smile on my face.. so i guess i did not hurt anyone in the process.

we used to takeover full class room during the lunch break. and have a ball with all the freshies.

once we had Who's line is it anyway, and made students do some real darn things. once we had a rock show in the class room, selecting few gals and guys as rock start and the rest has rock fans. and all the fans had to do the head banging...

DesiDude and Netraji please relax. I think Ragging has become a bad word.

I did get ragged and did rag others too, but it was all done responsibly and in good spirits so that people on both the sides had fun and also got to know each other better.

In the first week our seniors taught us how to stay awake late. Lots of us came from living at homes and many used to go to sleep by 11 / 11.30
Sharp at mid-night seniors would barge in and wake everyone up and keep us awake till 3 sometimes 4 am. we were told that nights arent for sleeping. Classes are for sleeping

In those sessions we used to be asked to perform skits. When the girls were around the skits used to be vegetarian, but when the girls left, then hehehehe ....

A case in point... we performed a skit on the Mahabharat scene of the movie 'Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro' aur hamaare version mien obviously sab log cheerharan karna chahte the aur uske upraant aur bhi bahut kuch.
Limericks bhi sunaane ko bola gaya tha and our batch had great people in that department too. In fact after a while our seniors also joined in and every limerick from us was replied to by them with another.
hehehe Ab mai aur kuch kya bolu, hamaare seniors hamaare fans ho gaye the after that. And I can proudly say that none of my dumb juniors were brilliant enough to come anywhere near us.

I guess creative gaaliyaan session to sabke saath hua hoga. Phantom bhi sab log banaye gaye honge. Once at 2am we made two junior guys run around the girls hostel shouting out 'Fire Fire, run run' hoping to get the girls out in their various states... but
unfortunately none of the girls fell for it.

Girls hostel mein ek event hota tha jo ki strictly out of bounds for guys tha and that was a party in 'Bare Essentials' for them.
Bahut koshish kee but usko dekh nahi paaya and I dont think that koi bhi ladka wo dekh paya.

So Desi and Netraji I dont think that ragging should b considered a bad thing after all. Like everything, it also has some bad people spoiling it, but in itself its not bad.

One of the rather harmless ones was this..

We used to catch a freshie take him to a room. Then we would wait outside and order him to undress and hand us all his cloths thru the door. Well he was alone in the room and no one watching him. We promised to return the cloths to him after claiming to have successfully undress him. But little did that dude know we will take his cloths and keep it at a distance he cannot reach without coming out of that room. He was then required to ask only the female members passing by the corridors to give him his cloths. The females would not give it.. that guy would stay in that room the whole day or as long as a professor does not pass by (saale professors always handed back his cloths).. man that was hillarious.

We made it a point to never rag a girl freshie.. afterall she was a potential "maal" right? We would go out of our way to patofy them .. not with a great success though.

Pelupai sorry to hear that you were partial.

Wohi to mauka tha saari fachchiyon ko achchee tarah se jaanne ka. And then wo aasaani se haath bhi to aa jaati hain tab. Ek baar fresher's party ho gayee uske baad to normal ladkiyon kee tarah bhaav dikhaatee hain.
