Bidding adieu to my alma mater !!!

” 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.

Senior : Guy who got ragged as junior and wanna get some payback…

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.

Ragging : The unfortunate fate of the previous idiot.

Evasive action : Watch the juniors when any seniors come nearby. (No one runs faster than a fresher. NO ONE.)

Lectures : Waste of time. Physical presence is a must…only meant for sleeping, completing assignments & general TP

Tuitions : What you take when you don’t waste enough time….

Professor : Person paid to put students to sleep.

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).

3. An engineer’s 10 engineering commandments of Life
1. Thou shalt study only during the preparatory leave.
2. Thou shalt never write thy assignments thyself.
3. Thou shalt begin writing thy journals only on the morning of submission.
4. Thou shalt treat all marks above 40 as bonus.
5. Thou shalt have at least 70 per cent attendance in the canteen.
6. Thou shalt pass GRACEfully.

9. If thou can’t convince them , confuse them.
10. Thou shalt start every sentence with a four-lettered word.

5. Feeling after Completing Engineering:
Survived Engineering !!!!!!!!!!!


This week has been quite exciting for me  , so obviously i have lots to share with you but i had been lazy to write a post on all that separately 😛 . My regular readers might know very well that i don’t like to discuss much of my personal life here.But i had to post something and i was out of any commercial topics which would give me some hits 🙂 .The India Australia series is almost inert and sluggish , No new movies to review , no tech innovations like tata nano and besides that i aint interested in writing off a topic whether french president sarkozy is accompanied by here girl friend bruni 😛 or not .So it was indeed a necessity for me to write a post like this :d .


Starting with the most important news my results were out day before yesterday after almost 2 months . My exams had got over by 4 December , and they have taken a helluva time in releasing the results . I sometimes wonder what these  people in COE section do sitting in their haunches all day.Its really queer that being an autonomous organization they take this much time to evaluate our papers. I mean we students dont write that much 😛 . I have almost forgot how i have written my exams 🙂 . The daily rumors of result being declared next was a real pain in the ass . Now that the result is out this would be the end of all the rumors.By the way i forgot to mention that i have successfully cleared my seventh sem too .My grades would be out on Tuesday an i hope to get a GPA of 8.5 at least (pray that i should get as i need to maintain a proper CGPA 😛 )


Then ,We , the students of ECE dept conducted a national level technical symposium called APOGEE on 24th and 25th of this month and from what it appeared it was a grand success. Couldn’t attend the first day as i had a pre training program from hexaware(which i would discuss in the later part of the post 😛 ) .AS a matter of fact this was the first time in three years that i have attended my dept. symposium 😀 . Worse , i Missed the culturals 😦  ,the best part of any symposium . My friends added insult to the injury by saying that i missed a dance by first year girls (supposedly hot chicks) 😦 . i dont want to go into the technical details of the symposium as more paper presentation never interest me,ironically i was one of the technical heads ,but some unlike me there are many sincere workers   who took care of everything 😀 ,GOD BLESS THOSE GOOD SOULS . Also missed a photo session with my crush , which i repent the most , i guess photoshop comes to play here 😀 .


NOW , the worst thing  happened was the news that hexaware people gave on 24th during ROAD SHOW / CAMPUS HEXERT . It was a kind of early intervention program where they gave us brief review about our training. Gave us a real blow to all my plans when they told that my training starts right now from feb 1st unlike after joining the company.We would be having training through e-learning ,in other words Virtual classrooms .Had lots of plans of enjoying two months of project time lazing around in home but now i guess have to study online 😦 . There’s no way out i have to clear the tests for joining the organization.Only solace during the session was that   a hot chick was sitting just in front of me  but failed to ask even her name  😦 anyway next time i wont miss it 😀 .They have provided some CD which i haven’t even opened.good thing is that this e-learning gives me the chance to change my internet plan from home-250 to home-500 which means 2.5 gb of free usage and night 2-8 unlimited download 😀 .


Celebrated republic day yesterday by going to chennai’s city center  a millionth time and returned empty handed once again without shopping anything.Just saw the girls there and came back.

Ok,i guess thats it for now . i dont know you were intrested reading this post of not, certainly i was not interested writing this post 😛 . would come back with some interesting post .just keep visiting 🙂
