The DW-16 as we were called had 44 trekkers. Most of them had come in a group so it was always groupism in the trek as birds of a feather decided to stick together.
We had a group from Delhi IIT too. On the last day, one of them celebrated his birthday. They brought cake from the markets of Chamba and decided to celebrate in the base camp. As we watched, he cut the cake and then in that cold night cake was smeared on his face. He was held by 2-3 of his friends and then he got kicked so hard that his ass might have stopped responding to any pain after some time. All in the name of birthday bumps. Half of the cake was used to smear on his face and the other half was distributed among trekkers
The way his face was smeared with cake, I can only imagine how hard it must have been to remove the mess with little water and how is ass must have pained after the beating.
With friends like these, who needs enemies
