An Encounter

I had a kinda wierd experience while coming to office a couple of months ago in the morning. Now that i think of it, feel like rolling on the ground with laughter.. Anywayz here's wt hpnd ---

I ws on my way to office on my faithful activa.... was about 300 metres from office, when i saw this string on the vehicle left handle(near the brake).... it looked like a shoe lace... I ws like, “how the hell did a shoe lace come there”... I then observed that the “shoe lace” tapered towards the end... now that’s kinda weird.... all this was while I ws still driving... I then observed that the string started to move and ws quite sure that it was not because of the wind.... Well.. the string turned out to be........ “A Rat’s Tail”, Yikeeeeeeeeeessss!!!!! God knows how it got into my vehicle... I then had to drive for another 300 metres with the tail hanging from the handle( the rat ws inside the handle).... parked my vehicle in the parking lot, rushed to the loo n washed my hands thoroughly with soap n water.. phew!!!!.... In a way I am glad that I did not notice the tail earlier.. U ask why ? cause, in case I did, I would have to drive all the way to office with the rat in my vehicle n it tail hanging or I would have to stop the vehicle, pull the rat out with its tail (wooaaak!!! >:p)

The Dumb Thigs that I Do

A couple of days ago I was watching a movie on my PC. I did not realise it immediately. Instead of watching and enjoying the movie, I was more concerned that the display was not alright, there were lost of disturbances, block noises and glitches. This is what happens when u take your work too seriously. FYI, my work involves audio and video encoders and decoders and multimedia players. I guess I definitely need a break!!!!

One more dumb thing that I did today morning. I was at my desk in office. I generally keep my cell phone on the desk in front of me. One of my friends called up on my cell and we were yakking around. All of a sudden I observed that my cell phone is not on the desk and started frantically searching for it!!! I mentioned it to my friend when she reminded me that I am talking on the cell. :D This is me!! I desperately need a break. I actually cant believe that I was dumb enough to do such a thing. Thank god that the people arond did not realise it. Else I would been the laughing stock of the day!!

One more Dumb thing. This actually happened around six years ago. I was with my friend Anthil. We were driving (Anthil was driving and I was the pillion)on airport road on my Hero Puch and there is this stretch from where you could see the runway (this was six years ago). We were quite a distance from this place when I saw a plane approach for landing. I wanted to a see the plane land from a more nearby place, so I actually encouraged my friend to accelerate the hero puch!!! And my friend actually did it!! So, here we were two dudes on Hero Puch trying to race a Jumbo Jet!!! =)) Man, I have a huge smile on my face thinking about it. And of course I have to run now as Anthil will be after me for putting this stuff on the internet.

The four years I have spent during engineering at college have been awesome. Did total masti, met lots of people, made some very good friends, freaked out and studied a bit too.

In the first semester, we did not have a gang. It was just me and one more friend of mine with whom I used to hang around in college. Only in second semester did we form a huge gang (about 10 of us). It was great fun then onwards.

Once we shifted to our department from third semester onwards, we kind of got to know the lecturers also quite well apart from my other classmates. One special reference to one lecturer. Lets call her Ms A. What was funny about her was that she used to append the word "tum" to almost any noun she pronounced. So, a capacitor became capacitum, a voltmeter became voltmetum, motor became motum, generator became generatum and so on.... We could not even laugh out in front of her (it was tough to maintain proper composure after hearing these words). Luckily she did not do that to our names.

Most of the masti was from the second to fifth semesters. From the sixth semester, all of us became quite serious about about respective projects and placements. So, the masti was quite limited.

We are having a class reunion on the coming weekend. Will be meeting many of my friends and classmates whom I have not met in quite some time. Looking forward to meet them all.

Me toh full nostalgic right now.

OMG !!!!!

During our regular after-lunch walk today afternoon, one of our colleagues was telling us about the "conditions" the schools impose before they admit students. I was shocked on hearing some these "rules" and also on the amount charged for admission.

Sample this rule : "Both the parents are supposed to speak fluent english and they are supposed to have a minimum of one car". These rules just dont make any sense. I can relate to rules which say that the parents should have atleast completed their matriculation or should have minimum education. But these rules, its pure nonsense. Schools are supposed to teach students to stop discrimination. Instead, they themselves discriminate among prospective students on the basis of financial and social status. They are being such hypocrites.

Where is all this heading to ?
