The Twists and Turns

The very same time of year it is … Suddenly you feel like doing anything and everything … Suddenly you have got so many plans which need to be executed right there and right now … Suddenly you start praying for the days to pass by as quickly as they can … And suddenly you start enjoying everything apart from studies …

I have moved for Ghaziabad to Mumbai … from B.Tech to an MBA … from Quantum to MS Powerpoint … But the feeling is still the very same as it was four years ago … The feeling that you get when you have got an exam (or may be two, if you are lucky enough) dancing right in front of you with open arms, ready to embrace you, ready to push you down to the era of uncertainties … a place from where you can’t see anything but the date when they are supposed to get over …

Few things might have changed but a majority of them still remain the very same …

>> 11th hour preparation …

>> Calculating the time which is required to cover the syllabus and then starting right at the deadline … And end up going to the exam hall with hardly half the syllabus covered …

>> You develop an intense liking towards world wide web (especially Facebook :P)

>> Suddenly developing an addiction to movies …

>> Insomnia, which troubles you all the year around, suddenly decides to leave you and let you fall in the never ending world of dreams …

>> Life suddenly becomes super hectic and you can’t help hoping to buy some time to kill …

>> And last, but not the least, in the middle of the night, you completely turn philosophical and start analyzing everything, right from the movement of lizard crawling nearby to your Karma and ultimate purpose of your life …

Amazing thing this is .. Exams .. And with my student life moving towards its completion, I have started loving them for no reason 😛 😉

Two days hence the exams will end, and so will be my first year … So many things happened in this year that I could hardly recollect them … I will soon be moving towards my first step in the professional life with my summer internship with DBS, starting from this Monday. Wish me luck guys (not for the exams 😛 ) …

Just one more year to go as a student … And a lifetime to follow as a man … B)

The return of the Demon

You know what was the worst thing that happened with my room neighbor last fortnight ???

He studied days and nights for the sessionals , slept late , woke up early and gave up on all the possible means of entertainment . To sum it up , he was no sports for those three days and was no better than a living dead . And just the night before the sessional , this news came . We could see it coming for past one week and knew it would happen sooner or later , only that we were not certain about the exact date . The college was closed for the next one week and the hostels were supposed to be shut down within one day , courtesy to “Swine Flu” .

The things built up very nicely that night . As usual , Mr. Nerd was having his private meeting with the books and I was preparing for the next day , when I was supposed to start the preparation for exams  😛   . Right then , a news was spreading very rapidly all over the hostel . A final year guy was tested positive for H1N1 and was sent for a re-test .

We were speculating a reaction from somewhere when a messenger junior came to my room and asked to make my way to the ground . Apparently someone organized a gathering in the ground and within minutes the mass started moving towards the warden’s room . I doubt if warden didn’t considered it a nightmare when he saw around 300 students gathered outside his room at 2 in the night . Immediately chairman was informed and a notice was circulated everywhere . College was closed and sessionals were postponed .

I am still not sure whether it was a fear of H1N1 or the exams that initiated this movement . I guess it was more out of exams than H1N1 . Going by the students’ psychology , they would choose H1N1 over exams anyday . Next day , everyone was home and that too , with an official reason .

“Mom !!! I prepared so hard for the exams and never wanted them to be postponed . But the management didn’t left us with a choice . They all are such bullies  🙁  “

Rain O Rain

NCR has been burning since last couple of weeks . With mercury reaching as high as mid 43 degree celsius , it took some real emergency to force someone out of the room during the daytime . The Sun was blazing hot and the scorching heat was unbearable . All everyone was praying for was RAIN . 

And did God paid an attention to all the prayers ? Yes he did . The morning of Monday brought with it an array of clouds and by the evening it was raining heavens . The lovely rain drops , supplemented by the cool breeze was nothing less than a gift from Nature , a very valuable gift indeed . Its been overcast the whole day . And contrary to the last few days , I spent a hell lot of time under the sky , enjoying the brighter side of Mother Nature to the fullest .

Rain O Rain … Don’t Go Away !!!
Rain O Rain … Please Stay !!!
