Just a post...:D:D

Huhh…3 days passed by… Was least aware of it… The basic reason is I wasn’t even able to stand up after the compiler design test… It was neither an innocuous one nor pretty harmful.. I don’t know.. Seriously this is my current position after spending my most precious 3 years of life doing btech.. Was I not interested in doing it before getting into it ??? or was I interested?? Anyway ! right now I want to extricate… Extricate from this suffused Btech stuff… The question of interest is of least importance now…Well!!.. I still have got 3 more exams to go for completing the sixth semester, appended with the phrase “not placed or unemployed”… At times I just ask myselves what is “that thing” which is a “feel good factor” which has struck me over the past 3 years?? and the answer is pretty obvious.. It is nothing but “nil” .. All I can say is for the past 3 years I was not “me” and it continues to be like this until june 2010 when I pass out of the college with a btech degree in hand(hopefully).. On a serious note, I can say , I got to learn many things from college... Got to deal with variegated mindsets etc.. If I am asked whether I had my life at college?? Even then the answer would be the obvious one..(i.e), NO… But still I have got one more year to be spent at college. Maybe things can change… The interesting thing is within a couple of weeks, I am going to be the super-senior at college… It could be “we” rather than “I” , with a special mention to my friends at college as well.. I still remember when I was a new admission at college , the way I used to get “ragged” by the super-seniors. And in a couple of weeks time its my chance to rag all the juniors of mine.. Could have done it earlier but I dint do it.. There is no particular reason behind it…And now will I do it ?? I still think I would preferably spit out a “NO” again.. People say ragging is the best way to establish amicable relations which juniors.. But as far as I am concerned I would totally disagree with the aforementioned. Is ragging the only way to befriend juniors?? Well that requires a bit of thinking… Above everything all I know is “ I am going to be a 7th semester b tech student soon” and within a year I am going to bid adieu to my college and its surroundings… Am I happy about it or not?? Well I guess this is not the right time to answer the question as I already mentioned about the year ahead which I am going to spend at college as the senior most student. . Hope fully I will be able to pen in a new post titled “What b tech has left me with” within a span of an year…. A long wait till then…………………………….:)

hartal->black day......


Sunday,8/9/09…. Time- sometime around 7.30pm…. Flash news on air, “CPM has called for an hartal tomorrow in TVM city and cannanore”…. I was watching some old movie in kiran t.v when I got to hear my phone’s message tone… It contained a message from a friend of mine, it was “JAI KU… Our elective exam has been postponed”…. I dint understand anything as I wasn’t aware of the flash news…. I replied to the message asking for the reason.. Got a reply about the hartal .. Soon after that my mobile’s inbox started to flood with the flash news and about the postponement of exams. I was wondering! , why because the exams where scheduled only for Tuesday and hartal is on Monday… Anyways I was least bothered as I don’t have any exam on Tuesday.. I switched over the channel to “manorama news” where I got to know that this hartal was called as a consequence of governor sanctioning the CBI to prosecute a top CPM leader.. As I am not interested in politics that much, soon after getting to know the reason I switched back to the movie channel and continued watching the movie, though I lost many a portion of that movie due to the channel switch.. For some time after that I kept on watching the movie and no other thoughts crept into my mind... Then came an advertisement in T.V regarding some “Do’s and Don’ts while selecting a college to pursue higher studies”.. I started getting calls from some of my friends who were supposed to take their “software project management” exam on Tuesday, all of them were extremely happy that they got it postponed, and also for the fact that they get more time to study for the compiler design exam. Akhil told me the aforementioned reason and it was at that spur of the moment I realized that I haven’t bought the text book of compiler design and I cant buy it tomorrow if there is a hartal.. I started getting worried about it and at the same time cursing myselves for being a hardcore procrastinator. I planned to buy the book last Thursday and its next the Monday now , still no book in hand.. Just imagine what kindof a procrastinator I am.. I lost all my mood as I thought my plans to study atleast from tomorrow is going to be a failure... I went down to have my dinner and while I was having it, I got message from some other friend of mine which said” The hartal has been called off”… I dint believe it when I read through for the first time but later on I got to hear from dad that the hartal has been called off.. I was on seventh heaven.. I thanked god a lot as the shutters wont be closed tomorrow and I can buy the book… at the same time I was very eager to know the reactions of my friends who had exams on Tuesday. As the hartal has been called off its obvious that schools,colleges, exams etc will work as per schedule.. Though nobody were sure whether the exams have been postponed or not , I was kind of contented and satisfied that I could buy the book. I just thought to put the t.v again, but this time I wanted to know the reason behind the calling off.. Some news channel displayed “ HARTAL CHANGES TO BLACK DAY”… Black day???? What is that???? Well, whatever be it, there wasn’t any news regarding the rescheduling of exams.. It still displayed “ KU,MG, KANNUR university’s have postponed their exams to be conducted on Monday and Tuesday, and the new dates will be published later.”.. It was then I realized that one simple call for an hartal helped 1000’s who were to take exams on Monday and Tuesday and at the same time normal life of masses is not going to be affected as the hartal has been changed to black day(“kari dinam”)… All these makes one proud of the Kerala government, and as far as the student community is concerned , Govt. of Kerala rocks a big time…….

Well .. After a vexatious day, I am again here in front of my laptop for the sole reason….. u know what?? Hmm I will tell u.. Just to post in about something that made my day a vexatious one…. As it was mentioned I retired to bed around 9.30 yesterday as usual making my plans for the next day(i.e today). U could just imagine what plans a person or a boy of 20 would make if he’s currently traversing through an exam season. Hmm.. that’s quite obvious again.. Have got an exam this Thursday and the weirdest part of it is I haven’t bought the text book. Its been a usual routine in my house that folks wont allow me to sleep after 6.00am on sundays(how cruel is it right???)L, I know, but I don’t have any other go other than to wake up. If I don’t get up by myselves or soon after the first call from either dad or mom then the day would start with me listening to the biggest thing I hate in my life, u know what?? Its listening to their advices.(some people precisely call it “chori” in mallu). And you want to know what my folks spit out as part of the above mentioned “chori”? hmm.. here it goes,
Mom-(from downstairs)- “Suraj(scream)…. Get up its getting late..”
Me- “Mom I want to sleep for 30 more minutes please, I was studying all the night.”(anyways that’s the usual excuse I give and mind in return I am given some time extension but not more than 15 minutes:( )
(after some time, a screeching noise from downstairs again, its dads turn now)
Dad- “Dai…. Get up…. Enough of sleeping.. get up and do something useful like studying or some exercise..”.(I don’t know why dad always wants me to do yoga in the early morning.. I have heard that its very good for your all round development if you practise yoga daily.. Due to his blatant request I once joined a yoga coaching centre near my house and for my dismay I was tortured like anything there.. a thin man of average height would come and start standing on his head, shoulders etc.. I wonder why these people do like this, and moreover they make us do too. That’s ridiculous.. Unlike him or all the other people who came there to practise yoga I wasn’t able to stand on my head and all. And moreover slumber is something I cant despise too. So I left the place after giving the first instalment of fees :-D.
Me- “Appa i was studying all the night and I need some more sleep”
Dad-(to mom)- “ Look at your son, this guy wouldn’t even get up early atleast during exams.. and I don’t understand why he is not scoring at all inspite of studying all the night?? Simply trying to prevaricate by saying that he was studying all the night.. I wont believe it at any cost.”
(I was half asleep and I could hear all these and moreover I heard the sound of some footsteps climbing the stairs, I knew it could be either dad or mom)
Suddenly I jumped off from the bed and went inside the bathroom. After taking sometime to get over from the slumber I opened the door of the bathroom and saw mom waiting there. I knew she was about to start reprimanding for something because her face expression is usually very obvious. I thought it is for not studying the whole of yesterday + sleeping for long hours.. But I was wrong.. the reason was different today and it was the silliest reason ever.
Mom- “ Your room looks nightmarishngly untidy. You do whatever you want but I want it cleaned by noon otherwise no lunch today”
(The above mentioned were the only words from her mouth)
This is the smallest and lightest ever scolding that I have ever got from her. I meant it in terms of its duration and intensity respectively. I decided to clean it up. ( I forgot about compiler design :( ) .
To be frank, I occupy the whole of first floor of my house, except for one room which is dads, but he never gets into it. So literally the whole of it is used by me. So its always my responsibility to keep it clean. I dint have the mood of cleaning the whole thing up in the early morning but I had no other go. I started of with the drawing room and moved on towards the bedrooms and dining room. Initially it was just lifting up the papers lying on floor and basketting(my usage:-D) it into the waste basket kept at a distance. ( Basket ball has been my passion since 4th standard, so I have the habit of throwing things like the players thrown ball into the basketJ). It took me around ½ an hour to do so. And the next was destroying the cobwebs and removing the twigs off from the air hole which was occupied by a group of pigeons. I never wanted to “shoo” them off but it was dads order to clean that too. After all these heck stuffs one thing I got to know that is I wasn’t the only habitant of the top floor but also some rats and cats. Careful observation made me find all their homes and yeah I did destroy all of them too.

The time was around 2.00pm (remember I haven’t had my breakfast). Well once I finished the cleaning works (they are carried out once an year or twice, but not more than that) I called up the judge mom(:-D) to put marks(hehe). She came , saw the whole place neat and tidy and was happy. But she wasn’t sad that her son didn’t have his breakfastL.. poor me, got too strict parents.

After that I had a bath, and ran to dining room for lunch. I had a sumptuous lunch( my mom cooks really well). Meanwhile a thought of compiler design exam passed by my mind. I was feeling too tired after the cleaning works but still I thought after lunch I should study something.

Followed by the lunch I quickly skimmed through newspaper and came up planning what and to study for the day. It was around 3.45 when I came up.

I searched for the syllabus and luckily I found it out. But.. it was then only I realised that I dont have the compiler design text book with me.(haven’t bought it yet)… I wanted to buy it yesterday but dint go out due to laziness. And no book shops today. So I had nothing to do other than sleep or switch on my lappy. I was not in a mood to get another round of reprimanding for the day for sleeping again. So I just switched the lapp ON and decided to post.

Well one thing is most obvious about me I think is “I am a procrastinator”. I didn’t postpone the cleaning works because I am fed up of getting scolding from folks, they do treat me as if I am a small kid aged not more than 10. That’s ridiculous. Anyways I cant start studying today too as I don’t have the book. Better get a new one tomorrow and start afresh.:). I hope atleast from tomorrow onwards I will start studying. And luckily if that happens I am sorry to let you know that I will be away from this place until 9/june/2009 else this will be continued without a break….. :)

Ohhh Boy!!! After a very long time… I guess I had to wait for this day to restart my diary… But this time I thought y not try out a blog… Apart from the usual cut-paste topics it would be more realistic too… After a very stressful week writing my computer graphics and advanced microprocessor exam in the worst ever manner possible I just thought to switch ON my lappy which was lying unused or precisely in a “sparingly used” state.. I just realize these days that when I had that old Pentium IV, desktop of mine, I used to perpetually online, chatting, playing, blogging cut paste stuffs.. hehe. (by the way the links to those are attached, just take a look if possible.. dnt know u might get some useful redundant info(:-D)(:-P)), Too much of multitasking made that old desktop go bonkers…sorry!!! it made me go nutz all the time... All those made me force folks to buy a new lappy so that I can use it without much of a stress(luckily I got the “yes” node from dad when I asked about it for the first time) heh.. Well I guess I m running away from the topic... hmm.. after a hectic week of 2 nerve-racking xams we got 6 days holidays for preparing for our next exam (i.e) compiler design, at the same time some of my classmates are getting just a day for preparing CD(compiler design).. I bet those people will score more than what a person would score if he’s given a week’s hols… And if it is me…huhh…. m blogging now… heh.. Hope it is being not viewed by my teacher a.k.a keerthy miss and I m sure that she would thrash me If she gets to know that I was blogging during the study hols and that too before her subject’s…hehe… Well, I was clinging on to my mobile for some time in the after noon, before taking a nap (looong one which lasted around 4-6 hours) i made a stern decision that I would start studying in the evening(evening means around 7.30-8.00(:-D)) and as always I dint feel like touching the books but for the first time I felt like touching my lappy and that too for penning a blog… Aint me a hardcore procrastinator(or not??)..???? I think I am..(heads up with lot of courage and enthusiasm)…. I was thinking of studying some academic stuffs since the day amp(advanced microprocessor) xam got over.. and I knew that I wont be touching the books until it is the eve of the next xam.. And gulping up some academic stuffs on the eve of the xams wont fetch you anything I guess.. (aint me right????).. But still I stand wonderstruck when I see many guys doing it on the eve of the xams and scoring helluva scores… And I got to see this from the semester 1 university xams of mine(our’s) in college… I basically feel that u don’t even get time to go through the portions the day before the xam and its great(n sarcastic too .. that I cant do it) to see that many jus open the buks the day before and score high…. Is that a special gift or do these people study without anybody’s knowledge??? I don’t know and I m still on the process of finding out the secret behind it… Anybody frank enough to let it out???? This space welcomes you then…hehe.. Oops I its around 8.00 in the evening(night… to be specific(:-D))… n yeah another day without touching the books… It might sound as if the day is over..heh.. yeah its just like that for me because I get busy after dinner strait jacketing my selves to slumber mode…. Hoping that I take out the books and read something atleast tomorrow(the next day)… And that’s my plan at the spur of the moment and I think I just post this blog and move on with my usual routine…… Good night… n sweet dreams… for all and myselves…(:))
