oh........... i am feeling so sad that rain decided to show it's power and might in the ICC trophy finals last night and prevented India from winning it . never mind i guess India has a another shot at it today at the lankans .MODERN RAMAYANA-if i could put it that way , with lankan's up against ram's(saurav ganguly) vanara(sehwag looks like one! !) . army. and it was due to holy intervention that INDIA gave lanka the ultimatum 'live to fight another day' coz the rain god's can only rain there , they cant dare think of comin to chennai . i challenge the rain gods there in lanka to show their might against the city of chennai( and i woyld wish them best of luck in that coz chennai is tooooooooooo hot and warm).

that means 8 hours of my server(cranium) will be idle in executing the process of watching the ICC trophy final rather than glancing at the CODES for tommorow's lab exam. what do do ? cricket is like a NASHA OR OPIUM for me .

EK CHOTI SI LOVE STORY

Well , now I know what it is to fall in Love ……………………
I met ‘her ‘ on the 27th of august 2001 when she
came to my house to stay here . when I saw her I was
absolutely stunned by her looks . I pinched my self
twice to see whether this was reality or not . yes
indeed , it was and more so because we shared the same
bed ! soon as time went by ‘she ‘ became very close
to me . I always enjoyed ‘ her ‘ prescence in my
college bus .

Well I think I have given enough clues to generate a
heart attack . ‘she’ is none other than my SONY
walkman . ( really !!!!). My walkman has given my
company where ever I go and it though being a
lifeless mute companion has injected life in to me
many times ( with it’s home theatre like sound
effects) .’she’ has inspired my so many times , as I
regularly keep feeding her with her quality foods(
DURACELL PLUS) .


It just happened that I was so attached to ‘her’ and
loved ‘her’ company around . one fine day I decide to
go for a conference titled CONNECT 2002 from college
. I hand over my bag (containing the walkman) and my
coat to a 1st year guy called Vishwanathan and ask him
to wait outside the gate as I had to rush into
college to say something to my friend . well by the
time I came back the first bus had gone and so had
vishwanath . I hopped in to the second bus and
boarded it to reach the place in a few minutes. As I
got down I spotted Vishwanath and asked him for my
bag and coat . He gave me back a reply “ I HAVE LEFT
IT BEHIND IN THE BUS, BECAUSE I THOUHT U WOULDN’T NEED
IT”. I was shell shocked because I had earlier thought
that during lunch time , since the place was a quiet
place I could listen to my walkman ( with the new
earphone) and enjoy the sound effects as it could not
be felt clearly in a train or in a bus because of the
noise outside and inside . I got very angry could
hardly fathom the reason that “ I wouldn’t need it”.
Well for the first hour or so I was all alone and
fuming within myself . but soon I regained my normal
self and was listening to the conference , but again
the thought of some one eloping with my SONY was
hard to digest .

Soon I went to the PCO booth and after repeated tries
to my college for about 1 hr , I got the pleasing
confirmation that my bag and coat had been spotted and
kept in the transport office. H.mmmmmmmmmmm I was
feeling easy , but still …………….
I came to college (after the seminar was over ) on
the 21st sep morning at 8 30 and asked the guy in the
transport department my bag . I first felt for my
walkman in my bag as an precautionary measure and to
my shock it was not there in the pouch . I reported
this to the officer and he in a very nonchalant tone
told me that he is not responsible. Having been
robbed of my walkman , he further rubbed salt in my
wounds by talking in a rude tone and was indicating
that I might be bluffing.







I was flabbergasted and in a few seconds from now I
had to give my VLSI model exam . so I without any
choice went to the hall. I was so disappointed that I
never even looked at the question paper and spent (
belive it or not) 75 minutes on thinking who could
have probably took my walkman . I was wondering why
most of the romantic fairytales don’t last the
distance . then I thought of people who had lost
their near and dear ones in any mishap and for once I
steeped in their shoes to feel the disappointment and
couldn’t accept the loss. I was thinking , why should
fate spill it’s fatal drink on my SONY . now I
really felt alone and lonely and wondered whether the
fire of my soul had been extinguished and I kind of
wanted to go to a suicide point and jump of from there
.
My mind was like DEVDAS at that time singing within
myself “ SONY oh SONY meri tammana , merah pyaar ,
dewaane se ho gayi galti , jaane doh yaar , I love u “
( as from the movie YAADON KI BAARAT).

The examiner had a glance at me and was wondering what
I was doing as I was totally in a different world with
a forlorn look. Only then did I realize half the time
is gone and quickly looked at the question paper .
some how I managed to answer 7 2-marks questions
and 4 12 mark questions and I guess that last ditch
effort would have somehow taken me past the corridor
of uncertainty ( 40 marks/ 80 ) ! ! ! ! .

I left the hall and didn’t want to sit near any of my
classmates as I felt no one would realize the extent
of my sadness . so I moved in to a secluded spot and
spotted on of the zips in my bag torn . generally I
knew that zip had a problem , so I never meddled with
it. So as I went to straighten it some thing shone
inside . YIPEE !!! it was my walkman , which some
rascal after taking out of my pouch( in the bag) not
knowing where toplace it had kept in this zip. My joy
knew no bounds after seeing it and I let out a war cry
(after waging a battle with Satan in my mind during
the exam). A few people after hearing it were looking
at me strangely , but I didn’t care .
This was like triumph of spirit for me resembling the
SATYAVAN SAVITRI story !

Only in someone’s absence does one realize the
affection one has for him/her and this mini trailer
in my life couldn’t be a better elucidating point .
well if this trailer had so much to offer I guess what
the “ whole movie “ will offer in time to come ! ! !

THE STORY OF THE HUNTER GETTING HUNTED
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
well as my previous blog talks about me being a quizmaster , all those grandiose plans had been shattered as the MECH guys wanted a fully mechanical related quiz and with my knowledge in mechanical being next to nothing , i rejected the offer.

but that proved to be a blessing in disguise as today as i just enquired abt the event a first yr guy came up to me and said that people from our college can participate , so i was there at the ED hall in a jiffy , bunking the last workin day( officially though). what followed afterwards was quiz prelims paper with 15 questions covering some stupid questionns - but some how I along with my friend prassana(E& I)managed to top the prelims and had an easy way to the final and the final was like batting on a bouncy jamaica wicket with questions in mechanical and thermal , fluid mechanics fired at us . but some how due to the grace of god i got some easy direct's and a couple of passes to win the quiz and i won 1000 rs cash.
well that makes the prize money won by me this semester to rs 5000. looks like the guys are all waiting behind my back to give them a treat and i guess this saturday a treat will be on the cards ! ! !

9/13/2002

quizzing-- well this term seems as if it has no ending this semester for me coz the Mechanical department of our college has personally invited to be the quiz host !!! . well since we may have a shortage of participants from other colleges due to the late time of conducting this symposium ,all of vel tech can participate in the quiz. so hope to have a nice time quizzing my fellow vel-technicians and hoping to spot any quizzical genius among the first years so that i can proudly leave behind a heir to " my throne of quizzing".
some of the guys among my gang who are coming are ganesh, sudhir , >, achut , vinu , lakshmi narayanan and other fellas of the gang . No comments: Links to this post

well i am on cloud nine after being rewarded for my quizzical efforts in the past 2 days. thursday 5th sept i had been to JERUSELAM college of engg and won 1000 rs in web designing along with a guy called vishwanathan and finished 3rd in the quiz finals after doing so well in the prelims. more on their symposium later ..... and the biggest story on the 6th of sept where till 11 30 i was in JERUSALEM coll , i just happened to see a poster of RAJARAJESHWARI college of engg EEE dept and CSE dept having general quizzes , and i was elated seeing that , so what i did was that i scooted imideatly in my kinetic honda along with a guy called kishore of my class ( 45 odd kilometres) to this college just in time for CSE dept quiz where i just was unlucky not to qualify , but that was made up by my victory in EEE department so 1000 bucks to boot again .

life's really cool at this moment , with me becoming richer !!!!!!! more on how the whole issue folded at these 2 symps

MOMENT OF FAME :-) well my picture has been put up in all the department notice boards in appreciation of my quizzical conquests in SVCET -tiruvellore along with my partner achut(www.achut.blogspot.com). so that makes way 4 some nice feelings today. my voice is down today after a bout of MINTOSIS -- that is what i call a overdose of mint . i kept on hogging them until i suddenly noticed that my throat had become hoarse amd sore. well it has gone from bad to worse amd what's more is that i have to give a seminar in mathematics tommorow on recursive theory and grammar-(DISCRETE MATHEMATICS).hmmmmm............ seems a tall order .
