Plan A always works!!

The last few days of hostel life seem to be so short yet so long!!! As friends leave one by one, the expectation of seeing them within 2 or 3 days as we usually do, crops up and then I tell myself that it’s not the case this time. However, no use spilling tears over it, because life gets its way always.

I have enjoyed these last few days @ hostel to the maximum extent possible, with my friends. The highlight of our mischiefs is that the hostel rule of being inside within 7:00 P.M. does not hold true for us. The reason is that we are intern students!!!! (Though some of us have finished the internships and some are gonna continue it, the hostel authorities do not know that) 😉 With this advantage, for the past 1 month I have been entering and leaving hostel whenever I want. Every time anyone asks me anything, the reply will invariably be ” I am an intern student. I have vacated the hostel and come for review or report submission or….” 🙂

I shared this technique with my other friends too, who got excited (though scared) and the outings increased as the period of our hostel life shortened.We always have 3 plans:

Plan A- Do not make eye contact with anyone @ the security cabin. Just go out and come in!!!!

Plan B- If they ask  you, tell “?????????? ???? ??????? ?????, I am an intern student”

Plan C- Still problems? Tell “??????? ??? ???????? ???????. ???????? ?????????” (This plan is mute because we wont have any travelling bags)

However, Plan A always works!!! Still, I have used Plan B on a voluntary basis, just to please the security.That too,when  I really come from my home .So why worry about Plan C being mute??? 😉 😛

As a final feat, we brought a day scholar friend into the hostel with us under the pretense of the same internship. Actually, this is quite an achievement given the fact that it’s difficult to bring day scholars inside the hostel( We have tried that once in 1st year and were caught red handed and had a difficult time in escaping). ???????? 1st year? ?????? final year? ?????????????? 😛 . Being vetti, taking so many photos trying to preserve our best moments together, chatting about all the stuff we have done, should have done, have not done, should not have done in the past 4 years, reading the slam books and having surprising revelations are too good to stop doing it.

For me, these few days are gonna end tomorrow, as I am vacating (???!!! I vacated hostel long back, when I went for internship ;)) the hostel tomorrow. So much fun… No reason to stay @ hostel, no reason to leave it either!!! ( last line is a stolen status msg 😛 😉 )

Until later 🙂

Adieu PSG Tech!!!!

Hi people 🙂

It has happened. The last few days @ college are almost over. A mix of emotions is filling me. The farewell party fell short of my expectations. I had so much excitement and expectations in my mind, since I enjoyed the farewell we kept for our seniors. Considering the fact that juniors had exams till the previous day, I tried hard not to be disappointed. But, then the photos and videos, which were supposed to instill happy feelings did not serve their purpose because it was too obvious that there were no photos of G1. There may be no separate entities like G1 and G2 for some people, but you can’t hide the obvious fact. I accept that ours was not as interactive a class to expect too much of fun and frolic. Still, the last day was not as much as fun as it could have been.

Apart from this, a sense of solitude overcomes me, which I am desperately trying to avoid. The real farewell is with the role of a student, unless you are gonna pursue higher studies. With no more classes to attend, no more tests to be thrilled 😉 , and no more hostel life to be vetti, it is gonna be a hard time for all of us. All the incidents at college, good or bad have had a positive influence on me, giving me reasons to smile and lessons to follow, in the future.

This college, which I entered with many dreams (illusions too 🙂 ) has fulfilled many and taught me how to work for achieving the rest, will hold a special place in my heart. Thanks to all my friends, who walked  by me and will continue to do so. Though we might part ways, we will meet again along the lane of  life. Good luck people 🙂

Take care 🙂

Until later 🙂

My e-thingy!!!

Hi all, 🙂

This post is not for the “sincere” students. Such people will do better if they skip this post. 🙂

I have been tempted for long, to write about my e-experiences at college. I even put up a post once, but removed it soon, on a second thought. However, enough is enough. I can’t resist the temptation anymore and so here I am to share my e-experiences of my college life 😉

When I entered college, I did not know how to handle a mobile. I had never typed a sms (Really!!!). Thanks to my dad, he refused to buy me a mobile in the 1st year (The reason was that my bro managed his college life without a mobile.Argh!!! I don’t see the purpose of his college life :P). However, I am not a person who will give up so soon. I took up the necessary training in mobile usage with my friend’s mobile in the 1st semester. But then, I needed my own mobile for the fun and feel of it, along with some personal reasons. So, with all my savings (Thanks to my saving habit at school), I bought a second-hand mobile, in my 2nd semester with my friend’s help. Then began the journey……

Within a month, I became the fastest sms-sender among my friends and slowly I got so addicted to it that I can’t be without messaging. All my friends started making plans to deprive me of my mobile for 1 whole day, but thanks to them, they never got so serious to implement it. Whatever be the time, place… I don’t care. I can do the texting without any difficulty (Note: My ability is limited to Nokia mobiles). All this texting experience started to turn into real use in my 6th semester(I have wasted so much time :P) It all started with the so-famous “EVS” examination (Actually, the e-thingy had been already implemented for class tests,but what’s the big deal??? When you can text during classes, then you can text during class tests!!!) I never expected that this would become such a sought-after technique in our class and then obviously, I joined the so-called network framed and nurtured by our ex-class representative 😉 However, unlike him, I am not an expert in all kinds of tools,but only with the e-things.

I never thought that my ability in this, would have become so known, until I got my slam book filled by my class guys. There was not a single entry without mentioning about this. 😉 Anyhow, I never faced any difficulty, because we girls always have our pencil pouches and other accessories to get away with it. The only difficulty is that my stupid mobile can’t tolerate my torture and will get stuck or switched off, if I type too fast(that too, this will happen after I finish typing up a long stuff).  I had an active co-member  and an inactive receiver from the girls’ side. That’s all for the girls strength 🙁

During the soft computing internals that was a fiasco for many, the first amateur who got caught unfortunately, was sitting behind me and  the exam was too easy to use the e-thingy. So, it was no big deal coming out,unscathed. Also, it was fun doing the non-elective helping. I won’t even know if what am transmitting is right or not, but still, there are people awaiting this greek and latin answers.Apart from theory papers, my other areas of expertise have been lab examinations. The only difference will be the tool used ;)Not a single lab examination passed with my code, except for the DCS lab examination (Maybe C and C++ labs, I don’t remember).

Irrespective of the circumstances and consequences, I should say, I had quite a good time with this. I am missing it already this semester,not to say, I will miss these mischievous moments of my college life forever. I think I have lost touch during this last semester, but like you never forget cycling and swimming, once you learn them, I believe that I can gain my speed if I want to. 🙂

 This post may be irritating to the “sincere” college students, but it’s all your fault that you ignored my warning at the beginning of this post.

P.S: This post may seem more of boasting. Sorry guys, the longing for putting up a post on this topic has been in my mind for a long while. So, please excuse,if my pride is above the limit.

At the end of 4 years!

Hi people,

The inspiration for this post lies in the e-mail that I received from a friend. The mail was actually authored by an alumnus of MIT who had listed 50 cool facts,addressing freshers who enter college with great hopes. The mail was too good,covering all the stuff that students tend to miss out,considering them to be insignificant. So, here are some of the things that I like to share at the end of these precious 4 years….

1. Having friends is great,but never get over-indulged. This is because when they change,you will be struck by an over-powering helplessness and loneliness. If your friends change, let them and if you want to change for the better,feel free to do so.

2.Enjoy the subtle happenings in college,because one day,those trivia might look so precious,but long gone.

3.Do not worry too much about being sincere. Enjoy small mischievous moments with your friends. Take things sportively-I mean moments like being scolded for late submission of assignments or an incomplete record or a difficult experiment for your lab test 😉

4.Do not strive too much for marks. It is better to strive for knowlegde. Marks and knowledge are totally unrelated.

5.Record your precious moments in the form of videos,photographs etc. because some day,they will give you reasons to smile with tears in your eyes. 🙂

6. Preserve favourite songs of your college life as they might turn out to your ever-green songs reminding the shared moments of happiness.

7.Let go of certain things if needed,though you may think that they are the essence of your life. It’s time to learn to move on.

8.Learn to accept things as they come since nothing is  gonna get better by worrying.

9.Try some risks in life just for the fun of it,but don’t get caught 😉 (I think I have tried quite a few to have a good laugh,anytime I re-live them).

10.Never try too much to please someone. It results in more hurt than it is worth for. 🙂

There are lots more,but these are the top priorities. All of us might have experienced the truth of such ideas at some point of our college life(If not till now,we will certainly do so in this final phase of 1 month). So share these lovely moments with your friends and enjoy these once-in-a-lifetime experiences before it is too late. 🙂

Until later. 🙂

Looking back…

People often look back at their lives once they have travelled a bit, either to find themselves longing for previous moments or happy to have come across troubles or a combination of both. As for me,it’s a combination of both, that too swinging from one extreme to another so fast. The best part of my life according to me, as of now, is my school life till 10th std. I never seemed to have real troubles other than arguing with my dad to make things happen my way. However, at that age, those trivial problems seemed so troublesome and now I can do with a laugh at myself for being so silly. For example,the most interesting part of my farewell day is the story of my tears. I was crying uncontrollably, actually everyone was,but for emotional reasons of parting friends.However my tears were due to the fact that I had done something to my camera which seemed to have lost consciousness. I had fought with my dad that I was capable of handling the camera.:( So finally, the headmistress herself sent her secretary to a photo studio to set my camera right(Actually I had pressed the rewind button, which caused some problem. Cha, it would have been better if it was a digital camera. All the trouble for nothing).The school was our kingdom and we,the 10th students,were our own rulers. I don’t even remember studying too much,yet got interestingly good marks.

After 10th std, there was some change in my attitude or environment or whatever,I still don’t know.I did not like my higher secondary school,not even to the tiniest bit (Mainly because of the uniform,the mentality of staff and co-students,pressure on mugging up crap and the list goes on).So I did not bother to mingle with the new environment which earned me a title-“Arrogant”.I still did not bother and I crossed the higher secondary life without having a real stand, i.e., I just got used to the life and lived it.However, getting used to is not what I enjoy,though it’s the safest way in many situations.The way people create certain illusions about the studies and about getting into “a good college” is really absurd.Now I seriously regret that I was in a situation to be led by those pre-determined opinions.Moreover,I seemed to have developed a tendency to be confused about every single decision that I had to take during this period of time.I would decide upon something,then regret it,then correct it and so on.I would even fear to try out new things,being so confused and on a negative confidence level.Thinking of all these now,I can just let out a huge sigh and wish that I had done better in many aspects.Really,the quote- “Don’t fear failure so much that you refuse to try new things. The saddest summary of a life contains three descriptions: could have, might have, and should have” is 100% true(Courtesy: Friend’s facebook profile).

P.S: The story of my nostalgia and regrets in college life deserves a separate story that will be quite lengthy. I will try to blog it out when I can.
