Later at hostel of Punjab Agricultural University where the food provided in the hostel was generally vegetarian, with an exception of eggs. So, whenever I used to get an opportunity to cook Maggi every vegetable which was available that evening in the hostel kitchen would get into this soupy Maggi and then served with chopped boiled eggs (for those who love eggs more than anything else, like me). We would even sometimes use the Table Tennis table as a dining table.
