Chindi and Kitabo

The black days of this semester are approaching with the speed no less than that of light towards me …or rather toward all of them who are like me .It makes me feel like a black hole with super gravitational pull attracting all sorts of problem towards itself.
Gone are the days when i used to bunk lectures to catch a nap in the most cozy bed of this world!!!, i am not arrogant but its the sheer love of mine for my bed which makes me write so .The most speedy fan ever invented blowing the most powerful gust of wind on my face…adding to theses factors is the biggest factor “the mess ka chawal ” how come i can forget to mention it .I bet none in this world could have resisted the blessing of god/goddess (its up to u to decide ) of sleep to go into deep sound sleep…in such conditions .
But its a story of past .what lies ahead is future …the most feared days of my life …(or of all the engineering students if I am not wrong ).
I have all ready started running in search of respite ,searching for books(mind you i do read books ) all sorts of help one can bestow upon himself from his/her professors/lecturers .When i approched my professors for some guide lines to how to get through this semester they gave me the names of books with all those name of foreigners(the foreign writers).
Damn it !!!come on !!! its so difficult to spell those names of theirs !!!!!!how come my professors could expect me to read and understand what they have written inside ?seeing that its not the way I will be able to get through I started my search for nirvana …the ultimate truth the “NOTES”.
Yes the notes the ” CHINDI ” notes the ” BRAHMASTRA” of all weapons ….which my local xerox waala provides me at super duper discount rate without any international pressure,for he understands the real pain and trauma of mine,and why not so ?after all its his ansestoral business (sorry if I am exaggerating ).But never the less he is the best possible person providing me with the best possible solution of the worst possible problem I could have got for myself .
Now starts the editing part …lemme have a look of the “CHINDI” notes hmm …haam isn’t it too big ? I think most its parts are useless …I can easily skip its 1st 10 pages and the same is true for its last 8 ones …so nearly 45 pages to study ..oh !!!!!to muggggggggg …But still its too difficult for someone like me ,ok lemme mark those questions which have appeared in the papers for time and again .yes thats it thats my ultimate aim lemme prepare it .
After making sure what I don’t need to study I started my studying …(preparation…in total for it includes all other means of passing the exams ).MUGGING thats the best thing I have learnt in the past 4 semesters of my engineering carrier …no matter what it is engineers are the best muggers to mug it down .If i don’t get what I am reading ..it means that I am on the right path ,the moment I feel that I have started understanding the subject ….beware !!!!!!!! something is wrong somewhere !!!!!! I am on the wrong path .
The phase has started and most of the time I have to spend with my girl friend “KITABO DEVI “lest she gets angry …and her curse darkens my future …hope she will make be feel better in her company and help me get through this 5th semester as she has been doing for the past 4 semester

Thank God!!!!! October is over

Thank God !! October is over. The October heat has gone into my head this time around. In odd semesters of Engineering October is one month which gives tensions and more tensions.

Studying baby
Reason —- With the term end approaching one need to complete all pending assignments, journals, presentations, projects and mandatory attendance in lectures.
All the “good” engineering students never complete their work on time. I am proud to be a “good” one. The months started and the hunt for journals and assignments was on. By that time only few were available in the “market” and remaining were about to hit “market” in few days. Anyways by fitting 15 page matter in 5, i was able to finish my journals and assignments by the time Eid-ul-Fitr was celebrated all over. Before Dusshehra i was supposed to make 3 presentations in the class. I rushed to department notice board to recall the topics of presentations which i submitted some 60 days back at starting of the semester.
I searched for the three presentations on internet. Google solved my 66.67% of the problem. I found the two ready made presentations but was unable to “trace” the third one. This was the first time that I was “guilty” of preparing a presentation on my own. My friends “ridiculed” me for submitting an “original” work in Engineering. Some how presentations were over by third week and i scored good grades as well – ‘B’. The next big tension was attendance.
As I was begging for attendance to my professors, a notice was circulated by college management which read like ” a student will have to write extra assignment for each attendance they are falling short by compulsory 75% required to appear in exams.” I was short of 10 lectures which meant 10 extra assignments. All hell broke loose and i hurled abuse to all those who sat for the lecture but didn’t signed for me and the college management for such a weird and stupid decision at the end. As a part of “exclusive ragging” program in hostel i handed over assignments to my juniors. The term has ended and so has the tensions.
The theory and oral exams are starting next week but that is not a big deal if you “run in the race for forty marks.” You can get these marks by looking “here and there.”
Hopefully i will pass the exams with “flying colours.”
