gotta study but.................

Well the one thing that I found out during my blogging experience (yeah I can see your grins), is that it is dominated by guys from the IIM’s . Well gotta do a thing or two about it. And to top it all IIT does come into the picture, but somehow IIM guys pull us don’t represent its true picture. Well some defending on the home front is not inevitable but also necessary. But that requires time (costly but not as costly as in IIMs????), and I have a quiz tomorrow. Well the really good thing about quizzes is that all boils down to what you do in that one hour (er 50 min.). You may study well, have all the answers on your sleeve, but the Profs will still have a trick or two to deceive you. Well yes I am studying and so is everybody else, but final outcome will belong to those having not only the grey cells and skill to burn midnight (or shall I say entire night) oil, but to those who keep their cool and try to score as much as possible knowing fully well that nobody in general is going for full marks. Everybody is just trying to ensure that he/she (for all practical purposes I can safely neglect “she”, cause a good engineer (hey not me) knows how to approximate best), just stays above the class average.

I have read a few blogs but missed out on IIT ian stuff. I will be happy to get a few links. Hopefully we will be able to present s true picture of IIT’s to the blogging junta. Catch you soon.

I will give it a shot

Well I am one of the new comers to the well-entrenched blogging community. So I guess, I am not experienced enough to write decent and that too daily mundane stuff that people will read. First of all people will read me, nice try! But then it’s me dear for who I am writing all this, just maybe my memoirs. So right now I am supposed to mug for my quizzes coming up on Monday. Well that’s THREE days away. So it’s too too early.

You know what amazes me is that really how drastically and dramatically a person can change in just a relatively short span of two years. two years ago , I would make a big fuss of my exams months away, prepare hard (I see your raised eyebrows ,but believe me its truth) and score good marks( please you got to believe me here too ). Oh my god what days of heavenly pleasure. But then not every day is Sunday.

As it turned out I met my waterloo just two years ago. I joined the IITM. The initial euphoria was music to the ears, but I soon realized that I had exhausted all my supply of “Sundays”. Yeah sad but true. I started with the initial hiccups that every pampered and protected mom’s kid faces. But I faced things pretty nicely (at least I think so).i was able to maintain my fort but only for the storm to blow it to shreds literally. So while other future engineers started to focus more and more on engineering, I started to lose focus of my primary and for that sake my only objective (no prizes for guessing it dudes). So things started to get troublesome. Well actually it were my good performances that propelled my ship, for they were the sole fuel. Once I faced a tough nut and that was it. I failed to crack it. That broke me and I got a string of results that were not music to ears. That’s when I lost my confidence (perhaps the mistake I will remember for the rest of my life). Since then it has been the same ride. Actually I could never get along in my insti. Bad results lead to worse, and finally doomed me. There was no reason to scale down my aspirations (second mistake). And take satisfaction in mediocre grades. But then that’s life you have got to square up to the challenges, rather than turn your back on them. I learnt the lesson in life the hard way, probably the hardest way .but no regrets, I learnt the lesson. And to look at it in an ironical way, tell me how many people have failed in life? (I mean officially).hope those with an iota of grey cells will catch me!!

So that’s it and by the way I also learnt about disaster management, crisis control and related things that too with a very practical case study at hand. Now that’s not bad at all (hope you will agree, at least some dear ones will).so that means I am preparing a base for my future options……..well keep guessing, for I am not going to reveal my cards so early dear. And last but certainly not the least you can pass all sorts of comments towards me at . I will appreciate all comments from wise bloggers and especially some blogging fundaes will be welcome. Till then have a nice and great time. Catch you soon.

down n out n impish?????

Well, let me take this opportunity to say that i am a
new member of the blogging community. I used to read
them but being the inherently lazy fellow that I am, I
never wrote one. So please bear with me and we will
see how it turns out to be.
As a matter of fact, the last two years have
been the most painful years in my life. I did not do a
single thing right, and am still reaping the
(undesirable) fruits of the seeds, I had sown. I came
two years ago to this institute called the IITM. Ya,
it was a dream to go to IIT, but then I never expected
life to change so dramatically and drastically. I
thought I had it in me to be a good engineer, perhaps
an obvious over-estimation of my capabilities.
Well what I want from the well entrenched blogging
community is to give me a few words of advice on this
entire concept. I hope people will respond. Goodbye
and have a great time.
