MY BitsGian Life...Reflections

“We all have our time machines. Some take us back, they're called memories. Some take us forward, they're called dreams.”

3years is a long time anywhere except here in college...a wide known fact anyone have to accept...i proudly say today m a bitsgian but still there are moments (ya, not one) when i felt i've done the biggest mistake of my life coming here (though the moments were short lived and out of frustration on other things, rather than on the college..but still i felt)...

the night (1st night in campus :P) still remains fresh in my memory wen i felt so insecure and tensed (coming out of home for the 1st time) 1st day in the campus...standing in the long queue for the registration having absolutely no idea who'll be joining me through my journey

i somehow prefer calling my period in BITS -a journey rather than a high voltage entertainment package...a journey dat has endured all the hurdles, from teenage bumps to youth jumps and helped me realize life's not gonna give u everything u expected...and more importantly told me that you are NOT the King..( i m aint telling the sad hard part of the story but you ask truely yourself, and u'l know wat m saying)

high hopes-of making it big in the college, 10 cg-who else cud get it other than me, gre-bang n chalo US..(for i thought its the way only way out from the ever boring job life...but today it still remains my dream...but with a small seems to be my only way out in this recession ;))

i've done some of the things i've never done before (talking with gals..i mean the amout of time spent, eating food worth a penny...yea it will, and this can b continued on and on)...and i've never done a few things which i used to do before so much(playing games...donno wat happened but suddenly a big full stop to it during 1st sem)..

attended all classes on the 1st day...infact was at my class by 7:40 while the tutorial was at 8am...went straight to library after the 1st class..opened all the reference books & tried to analize which one' s better...i still laugh my stomach out wenever i think of it...for it lasted all no more than 4 days by which the air in the campus got inside me...

still cant remember exactly how i passed my time in the 1st year widout a comp...just the worst of worst things that cud happen to me rite now is me losing my lap...but then i still advice any new entrants to not to bring their laps in the very 1st yr...'cos the relations made in the 1st yr widout a lap, the fun of going to people's rooms, the long walks & the silly talks will all be diminished if not extinct...

so, the relations made in the 1st year were the best relations made and will remain so for me...and i guess it will be the case for any of you...
people meet, people talk, people forget, & people meet again (new ones)...but after 3 years, you are left with people whom you wish u never have talked at all...whom u wish u shud hav talked a bit before, whom u wish to continue having them along through yur life, wish u change a few things back; of course the present lies there before us & standing tall, telling us to take how it came & part ways for the future unknown ones to take over the places in our lives

as naming all wud simply make me sleep on this chair instead of naming, i'll rather take the easier way out here
i.AH5 \m/- made it the next best thing to be frm home...
ii.AH8 kasi dogs-u ppl made my 3rd yr -the yr to look out for (in fact the reason behind me attending classes)
iii.Ch4 junta-u ppl made me change me u knew it

things that were hard to bear are sweet to holds true for most of the instances here for me in bits....

to be continued...
keep waiting for more

ASCII trip \m/ bow down for the best

i donno wat's the timing wid my starting of my blog but m just getting more n more things to write about...donno if its der everyday...or m just able to identify 'em now
now coming to the point of the topic, its ASCII trip (cse group: bits-pilani, goa to Arambol....its rather a cdc trip wid all people doing cdc subjects can come ...meaning the people we've been through out the year....we've been discussing about the trip from around 2weeks & kudos to Sailesh (clockwork) for delivering wat he's promised...unlike the t-shirt :(
the trip was scheduled on 7th april, being a holiday for mahavir jayanti...we were supposed to be ready at the gate by 8:30am & so i was waked up by 8am...i was there at the gate by 8:45 completing my breakfast...many were present even as i went but the time all of us came (54 ppl) it became 9:15 and we started smoothly
initially everything was calm & going on till this speakers of the bus went haywire & everyone had to shout literally to make it shut...the shouts dat started then had to be stopped only wen the bus halted in was all fun with the ppl dividing themselves into two teams...north & south...for the was violent, loud, filled with extreme was the first time i saw ost of the people in the bus in that kind of emotion...
we got there by around 11:15am and headed straight into the beach, we got our shorts & stuff..we were in the beach for around 2hrs with the footbal & tennis bal we got, after which we divided ourselves into 2 grps-one playing football & the one playing cricket; The one most important thing i liked about the trip was the fact that the entire lot have never divided itself into groups based on language or interests for most of the time...gals joined as we started cricket and it bought more fun (yoyo we won the match)...
its time for mess....sorry for lunch in the shack (the order which was given an hr before) at around 2pm
the lunch, have to accept it, it was very much satisfying & a bit unexpected though-deviating frm the normal tradition of taking the lunch along with you, when u go for trips like these with so many ppl as it gets; btu we had a pretty much normal resto kinda lunch surprisingly;
there were both non veg & veg menus & u gotta choose one of 'em...(me non-veg ob)...everything was orderd per table of 4 & there were 7 tables of non veg & 5 tables of veg
non veg menu (per table): 1 chicken masala, 1 butter chicken, 1 egg & chicken mix curry, 8 butter naan, & 1 chicken lasganiya something(cheese with chicken)
veg menu(per table):paneer kolhapuri, malai kofta , 8 butter naan& something i dint know
we had drinks (soft, of course- there are gals ppl)) for which we paid ourselves...& me & praj ordered have even ordered a tomoto omletter int he was 3 & most of 'wem had already left for the lake which was on the other side of the mountain...we(around 10guys) relaxed for abt 20mins in the shack and then set out for the lake.....
as we slowly crawled to the lake watching the beauty of the nature through the mountain side, we reached our final destination-the lake; it was my first time & it was really gud, something i immediately remembered seeing it was the godavari snanam i recently had wen v ( colony aur buj ke saath) went to papikondalu people divided into lots of groups-namely the swimming camp, the trekking camp, the watching group, & the playing grp (beat it hard)....i took my time in all the groups xcept the trekking one which i dint knew abt....the time was at its best...mass floating by around 6 six of us...catching ones hand another together was the best time adn also the duck float, forward float, back float, holding breath to name name a few...we spent arnd 2 & half hrs body cramped a bit near the left biceps but i was fine & eager for more.,.never did i thought the pros (kasi gods) to njoi the way they was memorable...
next scene, the cake scene-we were almost the last ones to return to our shack frm the lake & ppl were ready wid the cake waiting to be cut...yummy chocolate yummy.....
time for group pic,,,& then we had to go bak to the bus kept somewer out...* m absolutely tired looking for someone who can pull me to the bus atleast if not carry me....i had already drank 3-4 water bottles by then & still felt thirsty....
so i just got into the bus & grabed a seat for myself in the last row & was about to sleep for comfortable 2hrs.....just then i got a kurkure i think(jus dint have the time to see wat it is),,,waah wat a timing...we even got soft drinks of all brands...i sipped one after another all..adn they were in excess...i wasnt expect dat in for the money & it sprang me bak into life...ppl were singing songs all around & melodious ones this time (it was all mass & fast beat ones the morning session in bus)...i joined and there was no look ended as we came to our home...the campus
we had one more foto session for the combined grp, boys & gals....there were bumps too for *a lucky few* :P
people interested to take cues out of our trip to organize theirs are welcome and can take it for free (hmm..ya i was asked by my friend the details to have their trip...and i asked him to wait & read my blog...and i'm pretty confident there wud be many more)
i could easily rate it among the top ones i had in campus, & the most memorable one of the lot i had in a long time...thanks to everyone who came & made the trip a success & sympathize those who missed out... y0y0 ASCII \m/

"Ugadi 09" @ Bits-Pilani,Goa Campus \m/

i wasn't actually sure about the way how it would go this time as it clashed rite into the heart of our test 2 dates & also i was uncertain b'cos of the given fact that the main organizer for the last 2 yrs..harsha konduri was missing dis time around
The celebrations dis time have to be pushed back a little for the tests to take their toll first and surprisingly the customary 3 parts of celebrations (special andhra thali
(lunch) ; screening telugu movie and; the culturals) have got a new friend dis time in the form of tollywood quiz dis time \m/ the former two were done on the day before (3rd april) & yeah, when better than on the auspicious occasion of ram navami to set off the celebrations ( yuppy its a holiday too...but got myself an extra class of 2 hrs :( )



Part1: The Special Lunch

hmm so rite after the classes at 12pm (i dint attend the ram navami pooja bcos of the goddamn clas... & got my fair amount of dosage from my mom for it),v went directly to the mess(me tarun & prajeeth...later joined by kartheek & pa
ddu (senior ;)) to be the first to grab my fifty rupees lunch( yes v andhrites paid for it, else where do u thing the whole college including the faculty get the lunch free from)..
.the lunch menu : mirchi bajji, papad, dabulka meeta (sweet....jus asked my friend the name of it), endi mirapakay, tamarind rice, puri, cauliflower pakoda, gongura pachadi, avakai pachadi, potato kurma, dadhojanam, mango dal, sambar & panakam
well all the items were good & expected a better curry ( brinjal would have made it yummy)... i wasn't all that hungry & should have actually taken it an hr later...but managed to taste all the items & was vvery much satisfied with the food & the gals who make it look rich with their langa vonis, & sarees ( v actually had to go to the other mess C( for which the faculty came) to find them wer they were in good numbers) so dats it with the mess or lunch or spl lunch rather... & had to go to room & hav a good nap for my food to digest

Part2: The Movie
movie: Ready

people pondered about the movie for over a month-over the possible choices & wich one would make a good one to view it all together...and in the end, had to say it bcame quite an easy option to select...with no other good movie in the race...& Ready being the latest dvd rip out in dc so there's no kind of voting dis time for the movie...( wich certainly creates much unwanted commotion) & everyone's happy with the pick
movie time night 7:45pm...& the venue's been outdoor lawns instead of the auditorium, as people liked it the previous time....english subtitles too were kept for the movie on the demand of non-telugu people (with the last time super success of happy days \m/)...i was there at the lawns by 8pm and the most comedy show of the week ka Paul interview was shown after which the long awaited trailers of heroes, heroines & comedians started later (with everyone shouting for their own stars...literarally converting it into win ur star with your shout contest) & in an alphabetical order dis time to show no hierarchy...
movie started around 9pm and i went for my dinner & then rushed bak for the movie in 20min....the movie as i already saw it rocked & finished at11:30pm...(jus the time when we should supposedly be in our hostels....) & everyone rushed back to
their respective hostels



Part 3: Tollywood Quiz
this one is completely new & was being conducted first time int he campus as per my knowledge...i found it exciting enough and thus made a grp wid tarun & prajeeth...& rushed to lt4 at 5:30pm....i tried my level best to remeber a telugu face who doesnt see movies & found none :(...
so der at the venue.....dozens of groups were found waiting to unveil their special knowledge....
the event started around 6pm...wid preliminary round of about 40 questions...on paper...and we got 33 correct & guess wat....we didn't advance to the next the average was 34 ...hell is the second round was a typical quizzing round wid questions of various marks & Animuthyalu \m/...the questions were easy -difficult-very difficult...thus giving way to the lucky few anyway i felt lucky enough to be on the audience side for allowing to get ourselves a few bar one chocolates( for audiences questions...and we got 'em till they ran out of stock) it was cool, fun, & above all an enjoyable experience we left it at 9pm feeling ouselves tired(no ac :( ), & hungry...the next rounds were awesome as told by friends with videos & stuff...but i just cudn't hang on there for details..................



Part 4: Culturals
the most awaited part of ugadi celebrations were kept for sunday evenin dhamaka....the event was attended by Goa Andhra Association honestly speaking, i didnt have any high expectations & was justing hoping to have some good time pass...but from the time of its prayer song to the ending thanking note....which was surprisingly small this time :D everything fell just in the rite place
the show supposedly to be started at 5:30pm..with all the time at its feet 7 making mokery of the very few who attended on started at 6:45pm
culturals: prayer song, kuchipudi dance, duet, group dance, unconventional music, ka lol interview, bits tv9 news, concept dance, gals two to dance, boys two to dance, imitating dance, mimickry, tollywood fashion show ( a never before show....obviously the pick of the lot)
i could easily say this was the one show in which no single event of which has made me feel to leave the auditorium....
i thank the andhra samithi for their efforts & making this a grand success this time \m/
final ga cheppochedi enti anaga ugadi kummindi ee sari ani...adhi vishayam

The start up ( first one!!!)

Atlast, almost nearing the 1st anniversary of my account in blogger i've finally decided to start write blogs myself for the sake of my account & also to get myself good practice ahead of my gre exam ( oh yes its on 2nd july...wish me luck ppl) :P
well as m famously known for my laziness & indolence, it showed even into dis i only felt writing blogs as of wasting my energy, time & intellect equally alike and even thought of it as something dats done only by a few net freaks and lonely dumbos who are dying to get themselves acknowledged
obviously gre wasnt my sole reason to start writing blogs now ( aint a reason at's just a reason to tel ppl to prove myself a pro fro or watever u call it), i was actually in hell boredom at 2:00am in the morning waiting to see the hour hand move 5 more degrees to go watch the cricket match in the c'mon rum wid india placed at 375/9 overnite(ind-nz 3rd test end of 1st day)
after all dumb chats wid everyone possible, i was looking for these fwded mails in my inbox which usually it'll be flooded with & i found a mail frm my frnd asking to visit his blog, which made me remember of my site(dis site) & here i'm writing all dis crap for u to read
i actually had to search for my site...'cos i actually registered in a couple (or triple) of 'em & my memory's gud enough to get me bak to my site within three searches :P
after all dis..the feeling's been gud & i might b tempted myself writing another one tomorow itself( well not bcos der's match tomorrow too and i assure it wud b something more meaningful ;) )
well bfore u lock ur rooms to cum kick my ass (if in campus) or search my name across the gtalk to lambast i wud rather safely end dis one wid a 100 million smiles to you :)
keep waiting for more !!!
