Had our 2nd series exam for Crypto. A small exam , 50 marks and 1&1/2 hr. It was relatively easy for me considering only 3 chapters. Got up early morning at 4:30, had tea from the Depot. Came back and sat till 6, or was it slept till 6 , I don't exactly remember. Anyways, got ready by 9:15, went to breakfast with Jazz. Then straight to Arathy Teacher. She was in canteen discussing with the rest of the gang.Sat with them till 10 and gained a few titbits of info, more than enough by my standard. Frankly speaking, that got me through today.

Sat for the exam with my batch, 2nd half of the class. Wrote damn fast as possible, I hate exam halls more than anything else. Came out and straight to canteen. There was Binu sitting , having breakfast. There was a junoir from S6 mec too. The rest of his class had gone tour. Speaking of tour, half the college is on IV. The juniors are having a tough time in making HOD relent for their tour. The guy's playing double games, saying yes yes to the guys and no no in front of Princi.

Anyways, the result was out by the evening. I had got 37.5 out of 100 in the 1st series. This time, it was reduced to 36. Out of 50. Got an FSF seminar going on at Amritha School of engg. I may go with Jazz, Sanoop and Ajay. So Adios for now.

Before I sign off, today was Laxmi's birthday. Got a lot chocolates from her.



Vagueness surrounds me,
An empty soul stirs within,
Clouds of despair flow beside,
No shelter from streams of misery.

Time seems to stop for now,
No hope shows it's presence,
Held aloft in hands of pain,
My heart tears apart in vain.

Mind remains unsteady,
Calmness so fleeting,
Nothing stirs from within,
Yet hope remains for now.

Bonds form before me,
Some old, some new,
Fresh vigour into the minds,
Brimming with youth for all.

Lighten thy soul from misery,
Let the joy of others radiate on thine,
For life isn't about you,
Rather feeling the love that surrounds us all...

A small poem that formed itself out of the despair that I gathered today. As for me, my mood changes faster than the english weather. From desp to bright in a few lines of rhyme.



Nothing much for now...

Today's news isn't much.. Got a "Nice Boy" tag from one of my friend's family. Pretty soothing to hear that after what I have been upto in class time. BTW, we guys had been roaming around trivandrum for the last few weeks. It's nearing the end of tenure here. So for making up the lost time, we started home tours. Unannounced visits. Last Friday or was it the one before, I don't remember, u c Sugar patient, too sweet. Anyways, the guys, three bikes two on each, made their way to Spoon's and bhavya's homes. There was an intermediate stop at Suni's, Teachers', house. Suprise reactions from most places. These are from descriptions that I recieved not mine. During return, Jazz's bike got a puncture. So Thomachan had to leave it near thirumala, was it, and come by bus.

Next day, he went with Jose, classmate, to the place, got the puncture fixed and bought the bike back. I was busy with Most Wanted that whole day. How I remember that, because I finished the game for the "I Don't know how many" time. Anyways, there was a plan for the next trip that evening. There were only 2 bikes that day. Six of us, 3 from kani and 3 from NUS, got on the bikes and made our way to Kowdiar and Nathencode region. We went 1st to Remya's house, Ajith's cousin. What a welcoming committee. Hats off. There we met Suma, another classmate, apparently there for studying purpose. She was dying to go back b4 we reached there. After a few hours, she left for the hostel. Remya and her father dropped Suma to her hostel. We waited for them to return so that we could say good bye and move to the next house. In between, we came to know that Remya was a classical dancer, a fact unknown to many. There were a few other facets of remya that came to light that day. After she came back, we goodbyed and left for the next destination.
Ancy Mariam Joshep. The one girl who isn't known to talk much, the serious type. When we reached there, she was busy studying. We had our Series the next week and we were roaming around. She came down late due a calling bell confusion. Anyways, we all chatted with her parents and herself too. She had a younger bro, allen I think, who was outside. He had gone to be with friends, the evening Adda Baazi, for the uninitiated it's like Kathi at evening time. We waited for him to come back. It was late when he finally showed up. We came to know he was into Fashion stuff and had recently won prize at PAACET's fest. After some chat, we made our way to the final destination of our tour.
Asha Paul. The bhujji of our class, the one with brain and a tongue to go with it. We reached there late. Asha's father hadn't returned from work. So we spent time chatting with her mom, sis and Grandma. In between, there was piano in the room. She and her sis used to learn playing. Not now. One by one the guys started to play on it. Surprise for all. Thomichan knew how to play the board. He played a small note from a song we all knew. That was the end of piano lessons for us. We joked about wine to Asha and she bought us some homemade wine. It was nice to taste and we had just enough. After that, she showed us her family album. There were a few "VEG" comments from my side and also from the rest. She looks the same as in her 12th except for maybe a few gray ones here and there. That's from where I got the "NICE GUY" label.

Next day was Pongala. We made our way to Nimya's house. There were Sauwmya(Spoon), her sis and Devika. They had come over for the festival. The festival, as some of you know, is for the Attukal Devi. Womenfolk make pongala, payasam usually, offerings to Her. So Me, thomichan and Binu reached there by 9. The festival was to begin by 10. We had breakfast from there. IDLIS, after a very long time, with ma fav sambhar. Sreejith reached there soon. Others were to follow but since they were late, they couldn't turn up. We roamed around after the initial phase of cooking was over. Had free food from many places. Drank a lot of drinks and ate watermelon throughout our incursions. After that, we had Sadya from Nimya's house, took a bit of rest and started to make our way back home. We had Devika come with us till Vanchiyoor after which she took an auto home. From there, we were supposed to meet Jose for the next round of visitations. After teaming up with Jose, we were initially planning to goto Sangeeta ma'm house. But she was out of station. So we called up Shamna Ma'm who directed us to Manju Ma'm's house. We reached there after a fair bit of walking. Ma'm was dead tired when we reached there as she also had gone for Pongala. Even then she served us drinks and biscuits. We had a bit of chat in which she advised us to look at other options, ie. PSC, Banks etc. Good advice considering that only one in our group of 5 had been placed. After saying good bye, we came back to Kani while Jose and Sree made their way to NUS.

About today, full time net access. So chat , to say the least, was to happen. Chatted mostly with my classmates, old and new, and my niece. Had a Seminar, boring, on CISCO stuff. Went for WAD lab, enjoyed it as well as studied a bit....

Yesterday, Chinju had landed in trivandrum. So there was his treat at ZamZam. Had parathas and chicken. Icecream for dessert. Had CT,Criti, Prasanth(junior) and Vineet, chinju's bro and junior, for company. That was mainly with yesterday..


Long Time

It has quite a long time since I last entered a blog entry. Yesterday it was time for the Holi celebrations in our class. The series had just got over last Friday. I'm totally in the dumps this season. Don't whether I would get above 40 in any paper this time. That's the state with me. Anyways, got up early as usual but college's gotta wait till atleast 10. The Idduki guys have come over, only a few this time, for the wrapping up of their projects. They reached late night, around 2 in the night, and some today morning.

Moving on to me.... Had breakfast, before bath, with Ash and Hisham, Ash's friend. Jazz turned up after us at the canteen. After finishing, he left for college while we came back home. I got ready and Binu was there for company. Took an extra t-shirt for the occasion. My SCHOOL T-SHIRT. Best beginning for the day. Got my E-Sec papers 1st thing as I enter the class. Great marks considering that I didn't look at the book properly. Had the usual round of Kathi with the guys. Made fun of the girls and trips to the canteen.

Soon it was time for lunch. Me, Jazz and Sheik went to our usual spot , Marakada. Had lunch but just one serving of rice. The excitement had killed my appetite for the moment. By the time we reached class, the celebrations had started. The guys were all multicolored in no time. I changed my T-Shirt and got into the festivities. Had my face and clothes colored in no time. Special treatment for the late-comers. Anyhow after rubbing colors on most of each others' faces, we went for a round of the college. Show of strength/ stuff. March through the main thoroughfare with "slogans and kuvals". Made our way through the entire college and back to the class. The Mech crackers were cracking crackers for some match they won. Mostly our paths intertwined leading to extended bouts of "kuvals" and crackers.

Seriously, I never had so much fun in holi. Ya, there used to be the usual color throwing and balloon bursting back at home but not with this much fevour. After the celebrations were over , around 2:00 pm, we washed ourselves off. Then for another dose of Crypto and EN, bored to the skin in 2 hrs. Anyhow, we managed to sit thru and then made our way to canteen for the customary tea and snacks. Had the break in between the two classes, so it was a quick one. After Crypto was over, we sat on the corridor. Mostly the Kani and NUS guys. You see bird watching is a major hobby for us all. Saw most junior girls pass and then made our way back to Kani.

Surprise was awaiting us in the evening. We had dinner, for change, from the Hotel Mass. Chicken curry and parathas... Stomach filled and purses a bit too light. In between Thampi called to know whether any "drinks" were needed. We didn't have the slightest inclination why thampi was doing so. We had dinner, came back and were waiting for the bottles to land. There were bottles for everyone, "Bar-ley" water, Slice and Coke. I had Slice and some Coke. Ash, Binu and Thampi had the rest of the stuff. Sanoop, S8 Mec, was with us for the evening. After sometime, I left with Shakav for KP's office. Unlimited browsing attracts me like none other. Came over here after visiting Sheik's lodge, another development. Sheik had moved out of Kani to improve his marks. Pressure from home. Anyways, reached hear by 10-30 and browsing till now. Thought of writing an entry and so this happened.

Adios for now. The snaps for the day will be shortly uploaded to my Orkut account.
