What’s done is done …

Can’t take it back … What’s done is done …If only one could follow this advice … Life is nothing less than an adventurous holiday … But its very hard … next to impossible …

Chalo enough of philosophy … The thing that is worrying me right now is the fact that I am unable to book a ticket to get back home these holidays … The rush for the tickets at this point of time is as high as it could get  … The ticket vendors are charging over three time the actual cost ( 1 ka 3 … 1 ka 3 … The thing called “Black” is done in a more sophisticated way nowadays … In the AC offices , to be precise ) ..

So now there are only three options left in the equation … Get one in the tatqaal quota , which is next to impossible ( courtesy to massive load in irctc server following the vendors’ evil plan to mass book the tickets to loot the ones in desperate need …. The other option being the Gomti Express ( a train which I would board only if its a matter of life and death … Really Horrible … Pathetic is the word that could perfectly describe Gomti Express …. The worst Railway could get ) ….. And the last option … which for the time being appears to be the most probable one … Spend some 8 odd hours in the coach with a ticket marked “WL” (Waiting List ) …..

And as soon as I will reach home … I will have the departure date to worry about … Have to report back within 4 days as there is a exam waiting in the wings on 8th … And from there will start the avalanche of exams … Practically 2 months of non stop exams and torture … Both academic and entrance exams combined … This is a handicap match I am contesting right now … And I am pretty positive that I will emerge a winner ….

Anyways … Wish you all a very Happy Diwali … Enjoy the holidays …And do play safe … 😛

Hope all of you get a ticket to get back home ( not the one marked WL .. ofcourse 😛 😛 ) … Sayonara ..!!! 😉

A bunch of Hypocrites …!!!

There is no point reminding everyone about the state of education system in our country , right now . The education system which is more concentrated around the marks one obtains rather than the knowledge he gains ( Of course except a few premier institutes …. Mark the word “few” …. ) ….

The fuss that they make about attendance is something which baffles me every now and then . What is the purpose of attending classes ??? … To learn something … ( Pardon .. Pardon .. To learn various tricks to score good marks .. Is it ??? ) …. So that being the purpose of attending the classes …. What if I decide to skip the classes for doing something more constructive ( which , obviously , doesn’t include sleeping ) …. Where lies the point ??? … On one hand they say to few guys that the attendance wouldn’t have mattered had they performed well in academics …. On the other they blame few to be egoistic , self centered and arrogant enough to skip the classes , only because they score well … Seriously …!!!!

Four years have passes by … And I am saying this as loud as possible … I can not recall even a single productive stuff I learnt in those good for nothing classes …. And whatever little I know …. I am courteous to all the classes I have bunked in the meantime ( which gave me ample time to realize that there is a lot more I can make up from this ) …. My attendance is at all time lowest …. but still I can score more than a guy with a cent percent attendance … any bloody given day … !!!!

I am not saying that abandon these classes … I am not saying that the guys who are regular are wasting their precious time ( neither am I denying the same ) … The thing I want to say to these “dealers of education” is that stop making this “attendance thing” a compulsion …. Stop adding more and more bottlenecks to this process … What importance the process holds when the end product is same as you expected … or even better …. Stop sending letters to our home … Stop texting and calling our parents ( they have a life of their own … the thing which you are desperately lacking right now ) … Stop sending warden to our rooms …. and for God sake … stop crying like a little baby ….!!!! x-(  x-(   x-(

Your Way … Your Destiny ..!!!

Behind the fountain lies the treasure everyone desires so much ….
The fountain is very much promising …. and the path appears difficult at times ….
The luckier ones are motivated enough to cross the obstacle ….
And the unluckier ones are complacent enough to get lost in the labyrinth the materialistic world conjures around them …!!!!

Choose your thing … Choose your way … Choose your destiny …

A “discriminating” policy

This goes to prove that even IIMs are not perfect . Even they do err … and in this case they surely did ..!!!

This is so called “IIMs new admission policy for higher class diversity” … Damn it .. Just awarding 2.5 marks if you are from a non-engineering background can not be justified … Not by far … This is a clear cut case of discrimination and I believe this is a way of IIM-L people saying that “We don’t want engineers … We don’t want all the perfect students … We need a diversity … So this time around we are giving preference to a bunch of less deserving students to make our environment a bit more of fun … ” …

I mean how could you just give such an unfair advantage to someone from a particular background . If they think that CAT gives an unfair advantage to engineers .. then damn it … change the bloody question pattern … change the entire take in process … instead of devising worthless tools like this …

If you want people from different backgrounds … then reserve seats for them … at least make the picture clear … at let us know that “Look … these are the number of seats we have reserved for you “engineers” … go fight for these to grab a place along with other guys who are enjoying a “much deserved” relaxation in marks ” … I can sense hypocrisy sprayed all over the controversial issue …!!! … May be IIM-L was bored of the normal routine intake and decided to play a game of dies for fun …!!!

A valid bias can never be considered a valid criterion … Just depriving engineers from those 2.5 marks just because they have been performing well in CAT .. year after year … can not by justified even if they put forward some divine reason to defend their cause ….

Thumbs Down ..!!!
