Mixed bag !!!

I feel sorry towards my blog. I have neglected it for more than 15 days. So many things have happened in between. Things that made me happy. Things that left me sad. Things that i would have blogged upon. Groan !!! And to tell the truth I wasnt so busy that I couldnt spare 1 minute to write a few lines but I wanted to write a lot on it. I think I should cover up all of them.



Placements : Infosys is the key word.(Dont ask me a treat) 31st March was the date. I am happy with it for now. But it has left me in a kind of dilemma. The dilemma of choosing my second job. The company played a big role in brushing up my mathematics gray cells that were dormant for near 3 years of my engineering life. I think i will dedicate a whole post on tips for an effective interview. But for now my interview went pretty cool.

One key is to bring the topic on what you can speak upon the best. When he asked me one thing that I could do best I turned the topic towards blogging and then when he asked Was this the only thing that I could do best I turned the topic towards Maths N Tech club, and the most part of interview went upon it. He asked of why they made me the presidnet of the club, what ws my contribution, how much was my contribution to the club, how much i loved it, what do you plan for the club in the coming year, etc; etc;.... For all these questions i did given him very convincing answers and the interview was a cake walk. Nothing technical was asked through out and Yo !!! I got selected.




Elections : Our college's elections for GS, AGS, President, Vice President, AGS Sports. An active part this time in elections campaigning for one of my very good friends in the college. Every year it was like 'Koi bhi jeete mujhe kya farak padta hai' But this time 'Farak HAI'. A mixed result came out - A bit happy a bit sad !!!



Recstacy : To all those alien to this word it is our college's official Cultural festival. I am pretty sure that in the next edition of the colleges official magazine 'Deja vu' this recstacy will be termed as 'A great success' , 'Biggest ever', 'Enthralling performances from the performers', 'Nerve stunning program' Etc; Etc; But I disagree. I dont say it sucked. But it was surely worser than the previous years. It left the majority of the community disappointed.



Grand viva : This is actually meant to be a viva of everything that you learn in the past 6 semesters. And believe me it looked a lot cooler to me than a subject specific one. But among the panel was one prof who is pretty much bent that i should not pass this semester. Had a hard time with him. Hic !!!



Entertainment : No TV or any movie or song updates for quite a while. Still the latest hit on the list is Jashne bahaara barring the exception 'Pehli nazar mein' of RACE !!! There were a lot of treats and parties though in this period. 2 Major farewells and 2 job treats for and from final years repectively and a lot of mini ones !!!



P.S : And finally Sunny days are here to stay. That doesnt mean that good times have come (My exams start in 5 days Growl !!!) It means that its started behaving like peak summer now. People please send me a watermelon each in memory of the good times we'd spent on the blogger. Err.....
