I still remember how much it was tough to study Geography in school days and how many times my Father used to mention me exam schedules. I always disliked going to class and I will wonder if my average attendance through out my career will be more than 60%. Well, the white shirt and navy blue short was always boring to wear. I remember the first day when I cheated from my friend the definition of leap year. It was class 4th and still after cheating, I solved the problem in wrong way. I never had luck on my side but then whenever I laboured I got some thing. I think after that cheating incident I once cheated in GK examination in class 8th and then did forgery with Chemistry class test in class 9th. I think after that, I never cheated in my whole career. For a student like me this is enough to get proud of. And I know, nothing else but the frustration on my Father's face when I revealed to him that I cheated in GK examination, prompted me to never cheat. I don't know whether father/mother of new generation children do get angry over their child on these matters or not, but I have found in my own big family that people have started thinking that "money" matters most, "success" matters most. By the way cheating means cheating, please don't make your own personal comfortable definition.
Classes were never interesting. Geometry classes were irrelevant, whole six year period of engineering (undergrad + grad) was suffocating, even the Mathematics class was quite a bit boring, still life went on eating lot of Samosas and gossips. I always thought whether I am correct or the professor is correct. Whether my query is relevant or is it just another question coming from mental pool. I never got any answer. Yeah, now I can firmly say that I could not get any enlightening teacher in my whole career. May be because of my own attitude!!! In the whole engineering career the best enligtening tool that I found is "Computer" and ofcourse a dearsome language called "C" running it. I use to love Mathematics and Physics but I love to talk in C. You will tell me that this sounds quite techie, I will tell you - "No, its poetic."
RBC - rumor broadcasting corporation. I have been an active member of RBC. We used to launch stories across college campus. I was never part of any game, but I always loved people being part of game. Like almost all colleges, we used to launch "Aashiques" , a perfect "bakra" and one of my friend used to tell us -- "Its not like that guys do have crush for girls (to that greater extent), rather friends create a vivid picture that this guy have crush over that girl." And then their comes 14th Feb -
"Don't tell any one, am going to gift Laila."
For last three months, I am partially in job. The kind of work I am involved in, has set some limitations over me to meet friends and family members. I still gossip, I still launch stories, but then the joy is somewhat less intense. Result has come and relation with college is only ceremonial.
I am remembering words from Swami Vivekananda - "Utho, jaago aur aage badho. (Wake, Rise and Go Ahead!!!) ... Work, work and Work
