My days in College ....

It has now been over 3 year that I have been studying in college and the time calls for me to sit back reflect on the past year.I came here with dreams of a college of the movies and was immediately both elated and disappointed. Entrance did look like from an alien place bustling with activity and students in those characteristic vibrant colors and then stepping in from the main gate as i reached towards the heart of the college.. the portico you expect to be deserted palce with one recptionist and no student but to my surprize what i found was student everywhere moving around like crazy and seniors watching from the gallery above.


Well, I realised then what we see in movies is but a minuscule part of college. Nevertheless, the lecture rooms in large building are served with the best of facilities- AC standard features although which were merely a show till the 3rd yr of our college life .Campus is lush green with shrubs, bushes and flowers and snakes too... almost making you believe you are in one of those Yash raj pictures but never till my 3rd i saw the scenes of American pie enacted in reality.... but thn i tooo .


Personally, I have grown to understand the nuances of programming languages,computer organisation, networks, databases, compliers, operating sys learning software engg, management, computer organisation, organisation behaviour , HRM at no ends. Developed a keen sense of web designing . To say that I was taken aback by the class atmosphere is an understatement. Here I am dressed in a formal wear
assuming professional college to be a place where professors would want you to be in the your best presentable form, and I see people coming in to classes in tshirts,capris and .......!!!


The first day or rather 1st sem noone dare opened his/ her mouth. But then from 2nd yr in the middle of a class, they wud rip open the chips packet ,toffees,chocolates....open lunch or just much away biting into apples creating quite a ripple in the class, but strangely nobody used to care. Then calling the professor by his nickname or even stopping the professor in the middle of the class and asking him stupid question, to which he replies promptly, and still we trying to indulge him into stupid question behaving innocently ... and lo the lecture is over ... Another thing was the proxy and many times answering rollcalls and then wud quitely slip out of the class...well i have done it too..

Strange thing that is characteristic of the education is that books are more or less not wanted- as by the end of 1yr everyone was aware of the magic of KPH (kaise pass ho) and sample papers and it worked ...have to sit up one night before the exam getting it in head. Another strange thing that is characteristic of the education here is ASSIGNMENTS...i dont remember a single day when we are not copying it down ..trying to make a 10 sheet one minimised version of 3-4 ...i dont remember a single day being a computer science engg student while I sat in front of computer to do our assignments .. or even typed it ... even our practicals files are hand wrritten .Can I ever disregard the "Cheat sheet", our network connection ... no preparation for practicals exams as will get anything from there ... just a little effort and practicals are done.

The Rules and regulations are another part that needs a mention, I had read about it in books about england where people carry an umbrela everytime and the saying, " If you dont like the weather, wait for an hour and it will change" . I dont know about England in reality but it is certainly true for this place. I have considered the rules to be like weather...it changes drastically making our college life worst than our school life...we come to know about it when we are imposed by fine on voilating the rules.. ohh how can i forgot the most important thing yes the FINE and APPLICATIONS!!!!!! ... till now i have written applications on almost all the subjects possible and i am sure no one can compete us in application writing and we would get first class job if there would have been any application test in aptitude test or interview or even if there is any scope of application to be added in resume...

That is it for now, I have much more to say- but that is for later.
