And There Ends My Academic Career ...

Results have come. I passed this year also with usual mental peace. Finally, after almost twenty years of passages, I have no more usual academic class to go through. There will be no more class tests, no more subjects, no more college projects, no more round making across college campus and yes no more spicy stories. You will tell me, okay you can have PhD yaar, but then I will respond back -- "no more interest". My career was never rosy and also it was never pale, it never made me jump high, but it never made be feel remorsed, it was a typical career of an average Indian student.
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.

Jaane Woh Kaise Log The Jinke Pyaar Ko Pyaar Mila ?

We meet people, talk with them, (people analyze them also) and then we move on ... sometimes with "something" ... thoughts, feelings are the primary one. Amitabh Bachchan was questioned -" Do you need friends". Reply -- "We feel nice when friends are there. But I don't need them. I would not have felt bad if there were no friends with me."

Wake me up at 1:30 P.M.

I am editing this page on Compaq nc6230 Laptop. I basically save my blogs on my personal laptop, nx5100. The Desktop which I am using have RAM size of 256MB(is called small these days) and pumps so much radiation that ...well, I still have to use it, for many applications even if my eyes cry. Notebooks (yes those real pages) are used only in case of immense "research". E-books are getting very user friendly and there are folks who first publish their e-books and only after the book gets enough popularity, it reaches to publishers house. I think, in next 3-4 years (I will not say 10 years) school students will also get laptop for many of their tasks. Well this again seems to be stupid idea ... but ideas are never stupid, rather their implementation becomes stupid. The cost of computers is decreasing regularly and people are seriously involved in increasing the applicability and usability of computers. Time will tell us how IT has ushered in a new revolution in Human History, …
