Campus Platoon

Action packed, this gripping story is about a Second Year University Student who infiltrates a junior batch in the same faculty in order to understand unseen social issues among new arrivals.

However, Senior Student turned Insider, Chethi Senadheera bumps against something more serious than he originally expected within a junior batch — military intelligence.

Plot thickens as spy meets spy and Campus Platoon steps in.

2. Decision


His idea of smuggling a senior student into the junior batch was just plumb crazy. No senior student would volunteer for a stunt like that!

A senior student is someone who had already lived through the infernal vagabond life of a junior student for an entire semester!

He is someone who had borne all taunting and public torture bestowed upon him by the then senior batch above him.

He is someone who had silently mastered his hunger through whole lunch time while the merciless ‘interrogating’ hours had dragged by.

He is someone who had remained passively deaf to the torrents of blasphemy rained upon him by anyone from any faculty at his slightest mistake and — mistakes were frequent.


Imagining a senior student going through that all over again, this time being ragged by his own batch and superiors alike (even though everyone knows him), was sheer madness. It was better to throw yourself in to a lake.


But Neksha's idea sank deep into me. In the next batch meeting I volunteered to be an Insider.
