” Why the hell have i got myself into this shit !!! the place is a crap.I wonder what i would do among these bunch of morons for the next 4 years.” Well,these were the first thoughts that flashed my mind on the very first day of my college 4 years back .Studying in a college 2000 kms away was never an option for me even in my wildest dreams .Infact i had never even heard the name of the college before the fateful day when my parents chose this college for my UG degree (engineering).TIme sure flies fast , after 4 years now i feel that the first impression is not always the best impression.I was very wrong ,4 years of college have been wonderful and indeed it had been one of the most beautiful phases of my life.
Went to college 2 days back to get my final certificates ,certificates which officially declares me as an electronics and communication engineer 😛 . Dont ask me what i have learnt all these four years .Its quite embarrassing to say that inspite of scoring a good CGPA of 8.9 i know nothing in my field and that would justify my decision of joining an IT company 😛 .
As i was moving inside my college a strange feeling , an uneasiness gripped me. The feeling that this might be the last day inside the college campus (ofcourse there is convocation a year later) . 😦 From running away from seniors afraid of being ragged in first year to the arranging of a project in final year which almost ended in a jeopardy , everything during these 4 years has been fun .
Coming late to the class regularly , mass copying of a single assignment , passing comments on junior girls ,gossips during group studies, midnight show to a crappy movie ,silly fights with friends, making up with them later, proxies for friends ,copying lab readings ,sharing those terrible PJ’s, roaming around in bike at night 2 in search of a tea shop ,hours of talk in mobile with crush,sms’ing her in class even after sitting just behind her ,adjustments in the attendance,taking seminars ,snake game in between the classes ,last minute preparations for sem exams ,writing the most irrelevant answers,nightmares before results ,birthday parties , placement treats and lots more .These are some of the special things that i wouldn’t be able to relish anymore but yes,it would remain afresh ever in my mind.
With all the certificates in my hand ,standing near the exit gate ( supposed to entrance) i turned around and gave a final good bye .
End of happy days !!! 😦
HERE’s something u would surely enjoy reading…
1. Some Basic definitions..
Engineering College : Place where you’re punished for getting good HSC marks.

Fresher : Guy who has to ask where the canteen is…
Really Dumb Fresher : Guy who asks a senior where the canteen is.
Really Really Dumb fresher : Guy who follows the senior to the canteen.

Vernacular Prof : Unusual variant of previous individual who comes packaged with his own brand of English (“Now you check me our journal.” “You Out get from class.” “Are you Understand, Beta?” )
Practicals : 60 to 90 minutes in which we watch the girls do our experiment, and usually destroy a considerable array of lab equipment.
Hopeless Practical : The practical in which there are no girls in our group simply look blankly at each other, fiddle with the equipment, and finally copy the readings.(from the girls of course…).
2. The Truth about exams….
Irony : The guy who copied your entire paper passes and you flunk.
Critical Calculation : Summing up the marks you attempted worth in the exam…
Re-verification : A cruel joke. (results of which come after you give the KT exam).
