300 – Random Write Up from Good Old Days!

The storm was coming, but no one cared about it. The path was left unwalked for years by then, but they did not even think before stepping on it.

And then started the quake…

Spartans, who had never given up in their lives, who were taught to fight and stay on their feet in the wildest and eeriest situations since childhood, who were ready to bleed the last drop of their blood in the name of their land, didn’t think twice before standing in the way of King Xerxes, the self-claimed God who had long forgotten the limits of a normal human being and proven to be as ruthless as the Devil himself.

  1. I remember writing this.. It was a class on Algorithms Design in my engineering days and my professor was lecturing us about NP Complete problems. My seat was in second row from the front. I had watched 300, the movie, a night before and was way sleepy to grasp the lecture.. So just started writing this..

    I remember narrating it in Morgan Freeman voice in the back of my head, while I wrote in micro tiny letters..

    I could have got caught writing this up.. No I was never a good student, not even a good human I believe in that sense…. But I cherish these annoying things I did..
