The past one week could well be termed as the most chilled out here in helL.. had exams!! heh! yeah, no assignments, projects, deadlines.. what else does one care for?
Saw the maximum number of movies, this week!.. boozed at a high frequency... n did all kinds of bhagchodi possible. No! if you are thinking that i could sleep long?? NO!! that is one thing we can never get!just slept around 30 hrs the whole week. not that i am complaining.
now some details about the exam!
We out here have six subjects in the premid term with four of them carrying on to the post mid, and two subjects being added.
the rules out here are simple and rigid. Grading system is followed. A+ to F.. staring from 10 to 0 in that order. the rule reads - 2 fakkas( lingo for an F) or 4 dakkas( for D).. or 1 fakka and 2 dakkas.. n you are out of the campus asked to come back next year to repeat the course. So it does get on you. and dries you. After all who would like to leave hell??

More on life out here..
have tasks going on to get into the various committees. This is one thing unique that i found here. First thing, the whole process to get into a committee is so transparent, and clear and ensures that only the right person gets into the right committee according to his abilities. The process runs across 3 weeks - interview, mid term review of task.. final review.. n then a presentation. Secondly the rush to get into a committee. back in engg. we literally had to pul people to participate. Yeah, many do t primarily for the CV point!! lets see whats in store for me..
the guest lectures out here are simply mind blowing. have such top notch people comin on the campus that you just can't help but feel honoured to be here. We had a chief judge, the founder of subex-azure, etc.. Now a Mc Donald guy!!
and the number of events that one can participate is great. Me and my friend Amirinder took the initiative of enrolling in a market research project. got shortlisted and also had an interview with the guy in charge.it was a good experience.. interview on gtalk. Was quite funny.
We were informed that it is better to mute the talk, when the other person is talking as it would echo. now it goes like we are speaking to literally no one.. n one gets the feel that the person on the other side is actually doing something lot more important than listen to out blabber. then my friend, who always carries disaster in his pocket, actually cut the call by mistake. What can get more funny. We trying to call the person - supposedly a big shot alumni of IIML, and he trying to do the same. and he actually goes to the extent of typing - "R U thr?" No prizes on guessing.. we did not get the project!
one more funny, actually not that funny, incident took place last week. me, abhinav an KK had some tiff, and i literally dragged them out of my room, in the right spirit of course. now would they keep quiet? No ways. They lock me from outside with a huge 10 lever lock( KK probably has gold in his room), and they even get logs and all shit possible to seal my balcony. So, literally no way for me to come out of the room on my own.
Even my neighbour who tried freeing me was threatened - " agla tu hoga..". now after that who would come forward. these sadist idiots.. D F's.. were deriving pleasure by smoking on my face through the window.
But ya, one mistake they committed. Let the phone be with me. the constraint on me was 2 re. balance. So a max of 2 calls. had to make the right call. Prakash Babu comes to my rescue and am free. i go to their room, give this dirt smile and blow smoke on their face in a sense of triumph!! he he.. innovative game it was.!!
Just now back from a pcom batch meet. Ahh!! not worth writing it out here. now, at 5 PM, it is official sleep time out here at IIML!!
