OD, Jam and Kurukshetra…

OD is a really awesome thing ūüôā and all I wanted to do was not goto college for a couple of days (getting really tired of that place) and just relax a lot at home but instead ended up having a lotta fun and an even more hectic time than normal college days…

I’ve always loved JAM and I participated for the first time, thanks to Van. I came in 4th, it was only Meenakshi Engineering College but for a first timer, I did pretty well. I was 2nd for a while, then 3rd till the end, but just missed the third place when the event went on for another supposed Bonus round which only made me lose the 750 bucks that Would have got if I had finished 3rd. Anyway JAM’s so hard, My objections were pretty good but the TOPICS I kept forgetting. I concentrated so much on the other ppl and objections that when it was my turn to talk I drew a blank. But on the whole it was an Awesome experience :)…

Next, Anna’s tech fest Kurukshetra and I really really wanted to participate in Google Xpress, an event based on using Google and Windows in expert ways and tweaking them and Iknew i would do well so roped in MK (Jeez) and ended up in the 2nd place. The prelims were one comedy, cheated ūüėÄ and got through to the finals. Messaged all the questions to MA and he promplty replied to all of ’em and got us thru to the finals :). Very lucky that he had bunked that day.

Anyway the finals was pretty awesome, the questions there were really good and innovative and we were the best team out of the four that were selected but we lost the 1st place at the end and ended up 2nd thanks to a Stupid game, Minesweeper!!! We didn’t complete that game and another team had done it and they won because of that, What Luck man, so close but yet so far. Anyway 2nd place is not tat bad ūüôā just waiting to get the certs and the cash prize :)…

Not going to college is a lotta Fun and I’m going to try extra hard this sem to enjoy as much as i can and attend all possible
events :)…free…

Nostalgia

Time flies… It really does… Met a lotta friends whom i had not been in contact with after a long time and it was awesome…

I know with time a lotta ppl will move away from my life but when you think how close you were
with¬†ppl¬†some¬†years¬†ago¬†and¬†where¬†you¬†are¬†now¬†¬†and how different a person you are, how differently you view your life, it really is astounding…

Hanging¬†out¬†with¬†friends¬†is¬†alwasys¬†a¬†lotta¬†fun and I¬†had¬†the¬†pleasure¬†of¬†catching¬†up¬†with¬†some¬†of¬†the¬†JV guys¬†at Bessie. Memories are forever and its so awesome tat u tend to hold on to the good times with all the ppl who arent as close as before. I don’t even recall one single bad event when it comes to old times :)…That’s y they call it good old times i guess…

Quit Chennai…

What’s up with the Quit Chennai Hoardings all over the place? Any idea guys?

Why¬†would¬†anyone¬†wanna¬†quit¬†Chennai…

Busy…

My college has reopened finally, and right now I don’t find time for anything. After being really really vetti for days you sorta tend to get used to not doing anything. No time for blogging, Man i dont even have time to play or do stuff with my comp properly…

Anyway,stumbled¬†upon¬†this¬†video¬†now¬†and¬†it’s¬†pretty¬†cool.
Watch¬†it,¬†I’m¬†sure¬†you’ll¬†feel¬†happier¬†after¬†seeing¬†it.

Asteroid Won’t Hit Mars :((

NASA’s Near Earth Object (NEO) Program office has effectively ruled out the possibility of Asteroid 2007 WD5 impacting Mars. The probability of such an event has dropped dramatically, to approximately 0.01% or 1 in 10,000 odds of an impact.

Heaven Of Freedom…

Used to recite this in school a few years ago and i’ve always loved this one…Peoms rock, Tagore was a genius…

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where the mind is led forward by thee
Into ever-widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.
РRabindranath Tagore , Gitanjali (1912)
