My reflection…

August 7, 2008


Filed under: Uncategorized — Deepti @ 3:46 am

If wordpress suddenly decides to purge all those accounts which have been “quite” inactive, mine is sure gonna be on the top. Its been an year that I have blogged. Well, if you want to know the reason, its quite simple – I was lazy. This year (from Aug’07 to Aug’08) has been the best and most exciting and brought out a lot of changes in me. Some quick updates:

1) I decided NOT to write crappy posts full of phil as I stopped being phil-ical from the past one year except for one last thing – I became an atheist from an ardent worshipper of God. Reason: Tough to believe that there is a God when so many people are dying just like that right in front of your eyes.
2) From now on I would address my advisor as – ‘you-know-who’.
3) Was among the 40 finalists for Google Women in Engineering Award. Dint make it to the final 15 though.

4) Got a chance to work as an intern at Google Bangalore but you know about you-know-who right? Was sent to Philips, Bangalore by you-know-who where work was great n all but gosh!! Corporate life is soo damn boring. Did you know that you have to wake up by 7, get ready by 8 and be at office by 8:30 ??? 😦 I wonder how our parents have been working from the past 30 years.. Hats off to them.
5) Had to stay as a Paying Guest in Bangalore with a freak. Few excerpts of her Philosophy:
(a) We should get married soon as we are born, otherwise it is difficult to find a guy/gal.
(b) We should bark at anybody who asks us a question, because nobody should question us.
(c) We should sneak into our roommate’s closet and check all her clothes hoping to steal one or two.
(d) We should lose our interest in our lives and given some productive time, think and brood why we did that thing with that person some 123 years ago.
(e) We should keep blabbering even if our roommate tells you blatantly on your face to shut our mouth.

Well, as you can see, I had a great time with her. She spoke about marriage and only about marriage with a misogamist like me.Huh!! Inspite of all this, though Srp and Ajay backed out,Sashi wanted her number :P..Well hurry up Sashi, coz I remember her telling me that if she isnt gonna find a guy soon, she is gonna get converted into a jee–aa–yieee. Anyways,all in all it was a great experience.
6) Went to Skandagiri hills near Bangalore on a moonlit trek on a fullmoon night. Amazing experience!
7) Went to Raigad near Pune on a trekking camp. It was freaking awesome!
8)Been to Singapore as one of the 7 delegates who got selected from all over India to participate in the ASEAN youth festival. Singapore is good but the Raigad trip was better πŸ˜€
9) Watched some good movies like Taare Zameen Par and TDK n many more and few retarded movies like Saawariya and Aaja Nachle.

10) Began to hate if somebody around me is phil-ical. If somebody starts off a simple conversation saying “Yaar, Zindagi….”, I react saying “Jeeeezhus khiriiiiishhhht, spare me dude!”.
PS1:My bro is my wingman these days. πŸ˜‰
PS2:Thinking of starting a new blog as I HATE WRITING IN HERE.
PS3:Skp’s n ORB’s blogs are the coolest!

Recipe of Friendship

Filed under: general — Deepti @ 7:31 am

This is an extract from my personal collection of recipes πŸ™‚ .This is the recipe which I have been trying from the past..should say 10 years.Let me see if you like it or not..
Name of the dish: ‘FRIENDSHIP’.
2 table spoons of TRUST.The most essential ingredient without which the recipe is a complete failure.
1 full cup of SELFLESSNESS — The less this ingredient(which should be in liquid state) in your recipe,the more is the chance of spoiling it.
1 and a half table spoon each of CARE and AFFECTION.
1 table spoon each of SINCERITY and UNDERSTANDING both of which are very very important for the dish to be successful.

Take all the ingredients and pour the ingredient selflessness into it and mix it evenly and sprinkle the ingredient “I’LL BE THERE FOR YOU” all over the dish.

–Dont even get SPICES like arrogance,selfishness and possessiveness in the vicinity because they are prone to spoil the recipe forever!!

TaDaaaaaa!!!!!! There you go!!

PS0:This is purely my way of making the recipe,so please dont blame me if you dont like its taste πŸ™‚

PS1:I dont have a personal collection of recipes.I havent tried anything except making coffee and tea πŸ™‚ .

PS2:Dedicated to my most valuable friends..Needless to mention their names..Thanks for everything πŸ™‚

We will miss you,Mr.Kalam!

Filed under: general — Deepti @ 9:28 am

“I will leave the Rashtrapati bhavan with only two suitcases.”.These were the words of the retiring first person of India after his successful completion of his tenure serving India.Mr.Kalam is an embodiment of simplicity,modesty and honesty.Behind that simple person is an intellectual who dreamt what many of us dream–of making India a pioneer in the field of science.But what distinguishes him from most of us is that he nurtured his dream and made a very significant contribution to Indian Space Research.His contributions were well recognised all around the world and he was conferred by some of the most prestigious civilian honours like Padma Bhushan,PadhmaVibhushan and Bharat Ratna.

The first time I got to know about life of Mr.Kalam was by reading his book WINGS OF FIRE.My first impression on that book was it must be some really boring autobiography.But once started reading it,I finished reading it in four hours and was so immensely inspired by his book that I consider it the best of all the autobiographies I have read so far.In his book and in his real life,the only thing that he has stressed upon was to inspire millions of children to dream of making India a developed nation by 2020. Even with such a busy schedule,he always ensured that he found some time for children.

Although I am very much looking forward to see the first woman president for our country,I am little apprehensive about the two people who contested for the post–Pratibha Patil and Shekhawat.During the recent campaign,the way the two parties criticized each other was shocking.One person while campaigning was bringing into light the controversies about the other.Pratibha Patil was alleged to have used her influence for shielding her brother in a murder case.Her name is also associated with the Pratibha Women Cooperative bank which was alleged for financial irregularities and a handful of other scams.Can any of our future presidents match the perfect blend of mind and heart which Mr.Kalam had??Lets just wish Mr.Kalam a well deserved retired life and hope that our new president leads India towards progress.

Aladdin’s Genie!!

Filed under: Humourous — Deepti @ 2:16 pm

There is nothing like being at home.Eating your favorite delicacies,sleeping for more than 14 hours,watching movies and meeting school friends πŸ™‚ Well.. sleeping for more than half of the day is what I have been doing from the past two weeks.That is resulting in me getting outlandish dreams πŸ™‚ ..The other day I slept watching Aladdin on Cartoon Channel and I got the genie in my dream.I was frozen and reacted in the most obvious way..It was his turn to speak and in a typical filmy style he introduced himself and asked me to ask for any 5 wishes and he would grant them for me. I began thinking and framing my wishlist..After brain-churning,I disclosed my wishlist to him and his response was “HUKUM MERE AAKA “(I think I got the spelling right )..Here was my wishlist …
1)First and foremost,I asked genie to clear the entire stadium and the land after that and bring London adjacent to our college so that I can have my bro with me all the time πŸ™‚ …Bit senti but that was my first wish!!!

2)Then a castle made completely of choclate..walls,ceiling everything!!! A lake in front of the castle also of hot choclate…This is nothing but the after effect of watching hte movie CHARLIE AND THE CHOCLATE FACTORY

3)A completely different IIIT,no exams,no lectures,where in you get up,watch movies,freak out with friends but STUDYING IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED!!

4)A tour all over the world with all my friends,family for an infinite amount of time…Believe it or not I found myself having alladin’s carpet ride πŸ™‚

5)Shopping!!!unlimited shopping,I spent the rest of the dream shopping and more shopping all over the world πŸ˜€

The other day I was watching Winnie the Pooh(for people who dont know what that is,its another cartoon πŸ™‚ ),and the next day I got a tiger in my dream,siting next to me when I was having my lunch at home and eating away my gulabjamuns 😦 ..Guess that’s enough!!Watching too many movies and cartoons and sleeping for long hours are churning such kiddish dreams out of my idle mind!!Well I am not sure if anybody has penned their thoughts on a similar topic but I would like to know what the following people would ask for if they found themselves sitting next to Aladdin’s Genie πŸ™‚
1) Namrata — Another topic for you.Pandaga chesko πŸ™‚
2) Maruti — Write anything except getting admitted into JNTU or into a muslim college πŸ˜‰

3) Karan — Anything except some more hair on your head.. πŸ˜› Peace!!

4) Himank — Not another post named WHY GENIE WHY ?? πŸ˜› Kidding buddy!!
5)Anupama – Wake up and start blogging ma’am πŸ™‚
6)Shrikant –You have a blog do u remember???
6) Prateek — Let your imagination go wild!!
7)Rakhi–Dont put up the entire Aladdin video on your blog now πŸ˜›

Phew!!What a sem !!!

Filed under: IIIT and me — Deepti @ 8:39 pm

Its been around 2 months that I totally forgot that a thing called BLOGGING existed…Got busy wid exams and the things which came along in the past 2 months that pulled me away from the very thing which I love doing…. Blogging…So here Iam burning my brain cells thinking of what to write about…Would start my journey narrating my experiences of this semester…
This semester has been really big for me..It all started with a BIG BANG on the very beginning day of my semester,I met with an accident and had a fracture in my leg…After being at home for about three weeks,I came back to campus with a walking stick πŸ™‚ ..I missed many things this semester,be it the sports event or the dances..Academically this sem is the worst of all the semesters…Though I enjoyed working on graphics assignments or the DB project,I literally got single digit scores in many subjects and my second midsems were a total disaster πŸ™‚ Not one not two but all the four subjects I was one of the least scorers of the class.. Being a fairly good student,I should say that getting such disgusting marks have opened my eyes and prevented me in losing myself and made me to think about my academics..Worked for the end semesters but screwed up four out of five exams 😦

Personally,phew!!What a sem!! I had my sweetest brother leave for abroad making me feel sad and completely down for few months and then making me self dependent now..I made many new friends and lost some good old ones..My facade worked wonderfully well this sem even for people whom I thought would understand,who actually thought I am damn fine and need no care to be taken….I learned few hard things which were very hard to accept but there is no other option..huhhhh!! A complete disaster when it comes to my relations and the situation became worser as I dint have my sweet brother with me who would have supported me all way through…
After our exams ,was this dilemma of whether to take honors or not and if yes then which stream..After a lot of thought and consultation,I opted for CVIT..(For all those who are not IIITians,CVIT is Center for Visual Info Tech )..I enjoyed the classes which we had for around ten days..I watched around 15 movies in these ten days,slept in the mornings at 7 and woke up in the afternoons for the classes,did some crazy things like having breakfast on some road side shop near my college two three times and guies let me tell you,..I loved the food there!! I also tried footboarding early in the morning and it totally rocks!! I swear I would do this quite often from now on…
Phew!! Finally a post .from my side .. πŸ™‚
PS 1: I luv u bro and I really wish you were here..
PS2: Going home tomorrow and in no mood to sleep tonight..

PS3:Guess this is the worst post I have ever written πŸ™‚

Filed under: Philosophy and me — Deepti @ 10:32 pm

Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β  Big question..Finally found an answer to it πŸ™‚ Getting into the scenario,I was a typical Hem and Haw(the characters of the book WHO MOVED MY CHEESE who were reluctant to mould themselves according to the situations around them). I enjoyed being where I was,reluctant to look at the changes happening around me.Then one fine day,I realised that I have lost my cheese.The cheese station is completely empty.. I wasnt ready for it…All the time,I thought I dont deserve this as there is no mistake of mine(atleast that is what I thought to be).I wasnt ready to change..I wanted someone around me to put MY cheese in its rightful place i.e, for me…Extremely disappointed ,frustated,I lamented on the world.Some times,I saw and felt the mirage of getting my cheese all for me.In the next second,it completely shattered into pieces and so did I …My best friends wanted me to become like ‘Sniff and Scurry'(the names of the mice who moved on the instant they saw that there is no cheese for them).I told them Iam trying but inherently I never wanted to and that is why I was stuck at the same cheese station waiting and waiting for someone to put my cheese back.
Then,the Haw part of me awoke and told me probably its me who has to change and move on and there is no fool in this world who would sacrifice their cheese for you so that you would be happy.This sounded practical to me..I tried my hand at this new concept of moving on..You feel good in a way when you see you are progressing and not losing yourself when you lost the cheese.But its not that easy afterall because that cheese was something very much dear to you..I moved on and on..
Offlate I realise that there isn’t anybody who has actually moved my cheese.I dint have it in my control and failed to see when it was slipping off my hands.I was wrong when I blamed people for not putting my cheese back..With this realisation,you feel good as you have realised your mistake and you wont dare to repeat such a gruesome mistake again.
Being a trekker towards finding my new cheese,I feel strong.I am completely independent now,think and follow my heart.But now and then I get the mirage of getting my favorite cheese back,sometimes it stays too long giving me a feel that probably it is not a mirage but a reality.I try to touch it with my hand and there it goes ..there goes the bubble splitting into minutest particles, waking me from my dream . I open my eyes,see the tears at the corner of my eyes and then a cold soft breeze blows on my face,blowing my tears along with it.I want to have more of this refreshing air,so gear up putting my jogging shoes on and continue my trekking..Great journey.You have peace,silence and more of silence..
Now and then,when I think as to why I remained silent until I lost my cheese completely,I feel the strong liking towards my cheese has blinded me and failed to accept the changes that happened around me.The small amount of selfishness in me which wanted to have more and more of this cheese was surpassed by this liking. Every expectation of mine that somebody would put my cheese back or thinking of getting back to the old cheese station so that I get my cheese back was another mistake I commited .BEING SELFLESS WHEN IT COMES TO STEPPING AWAY SO THAT YOUR FRIEND FINDS HAPPINESS AND BEING SELFISH ABOUT ALL THE BLUES THEREAFTER ….

All I am looking at presently is at my new expeditions with the thing broad clear in my mind that I have lost my old favourite cheese completely and there is no way to get it back and move on with new and refreshing company,wearing a bigg smile on my face πŸ™‚
Wish me happy journey πŸ™‚

Sorry guies if I disappoint you.But I am here to jot down about a simple principle which I follow— the KISS principle—-“Keep It Simple and Straight” principle πŸ™‚ I have learnt this principle from my brother and this principle totally rocks…

Let me start by narrating an incident..It was my birthday the next day and my brother was busy as he was engaged in arranging and attending his best friend’s wedding and I was here in the campus.I called him that afternoon and told him openly that I want to see him at 12:00 that night and want to celebrate my birthday at 12:00 with the person whom I love the most..It was impossible for him to drive almost around 20 or even more kilometers just to come here to wish me happy birthday,especially because he hasn’t slept from the past 5 days.He said he would try his level best but cannot promise.I was happy that I atleast told him what was I EXPECTING(the root cause of all the problems πŸ™‚ ) out of him.If I wouldnt have told him that night what I wanted,I would have felt very bad….

I wonder at the way I have evolved in the recent past.I never used to tell what I expect out of people.I would just wait for them to live upto my expectations.And if that did not happen,I used to feel bad.Now,I think,atleast make that person aware of your expectations before you get hurt..And for all those who think they are not goodΒ  atΒ  tellingΒ  their most loved ones their true feelings,all I can say is to be ready to face the consequences and I think they dont have any right to blame others for not living upto their expectations..Ofcourse there would have been a completely different charm if my brother would have come to meet me without me asking him to come..but the final purpose is met and that is what is important to me πŸ™‚

Things which are not in our hands,cant be changed.But things which are totally in our hands like our relationships with people,shoudn’t be made a mess,not atleast from your side right?? Life is too short to complicate things and brood over the things and mistakes which we have committed.Learn from your mistakes and move on..

My favourite line THERE ARE TOO MANY THINGS AROUND US AND VERY LITTLE TIME..BEFORE YOU REALISE THAT THERE IS HARDLY ANYTHING BOTHERING YOU,IT WOUD BE TOO LATE…SIMPLIFY THINGS!!! This is one line which I love using it and I earnestly try putting everyword mentioned into action..I used this line before around eight of my closest buddies including my dad in one day when everybody was unhappy about some of their relationships!!Everytime I feel Iam getting whiffed by the things around me,I get these lines in my mind and things are back into my hands..

My best friend Charan always tells one line–Life is not meant to be brooding about the past.Live this day.Enjoy to the maximun this day..What is going to happen tomorrow,well… we would think about it tomorrow..

Offlate I have realised that things and life is very simple.Its our actions,our complicated analyses that make it complicated..But why do we always try to complicate??Cant you say to the person whom you like the most what you expect
out of that person??Do we really have to make things so tough around us??No right…

I have seen a parent who had ego-clashes with her daughter and the consequence was that they stopped communicating with each other..Then oneday,that parent came to know that her daugher has met with an accident and is dead..God!! The regret which the parent had was something I cannot put in words..The only thing that she had in her mind..If only I get another chance,I would love to hug her and tell her how much I love her…This incident has hit me hard..I wondered..Why complicate things getting your ego between and now repenting all through your life that you shouldn’t have done it !! Why wait for a second chance when you were given a first???

I love these lines of the song RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW from the movie BLUFF MASTER.. The lines are KAL AGAR NA MIL PAAYE,REH NA JAYE BAAT BAAKI. Lead every day as it is your last day..And take it from me,you would never ever dare to mess up any of your most important relations.

If you love a person,tell that person how much you love him/her everyday.If you feel a person is important to you,tell him everyday how much he/she is to you..If you are angry with a person,for heaven’s sake tell that person what has annoyed you ..Dont keep the other person guessing 101 things which might have changed your attitude towards him/her.And dont delay clearing off any misconceptions you have. Be the first person to help your friend when (s)he is in trouble. Mind you,Iam talking about your MOST important relationships.You obviously cant be candid with everybody around
you.What if there is no tomorrow…You shouldnt have any regret right??
Following the KISS principle is not that easy..Its not that tough either..So folks KISS your life.. πŸ™‚

PS1: Phew!! Philosophy and me πŸ™‚ By the way, my bro did turn up that night at 12:00 and nothing else would make my birthday more special than this!!
PS2: Missing my bro terribly 😦 I wish I could fly and reach him whenever I want to 😦
PS3: Listening to the song Bin Tere from GURU from the past 5 days for more than 200
times..Awesome song!! Would love to dedicate few lines to my bro πŸ˜‰
tere binaa chaand kaa sonaa khotaa re
peeli peeli dhool undaawe jhootaa re
tere binaa sonaa peetal
tere sang keekar peepal

Luv u bro !!

Tag Post !! Here it comes!!

Filed under: IIIT and me — Deepti @ 3:48 am

Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β  Well-o-well thanks to Maruti and Namrata for giving me another addition in my posts’ list… Let me see how well can I answer the questions…Here I go….

1.A living person whom I wouldlike to meetΒ  : Well it would be John F Nash,the subject of the movie A BEAUTIFUL of the best movies I have ever seen and which has inspired me the most.. A brilliant Mathematician,John Nash suffered from Schizophrenia,got admitted to a mental asylum and his entire career came to a pause for more than a decade.He then decided to fight against HIS OWN THOUGHTS and move towards his goal which was receiving a Nobel Prize for his work and finally made his dream come true..An awe inspiring character!!!Live illustration of the fact that ‘Nothing is Impossible’ .

2A dead person whom I would like to meet :Bhagat Singh

3.An event in Indian History which I would like to change:Well it would definitely be the partition of India and Pakistan and all those events which has raised such feelings among Muslims at that time.We were together all through the struggle for independence and should have been together till now..If this incident wouldn’t have happened,there would have been no killings,sufferings,religious fightsΒ  and wars between India and Pakistan and India would have been a far better place to live in.

4 .A movie which I would like to witness in real life: It would be any of the awe inspiring movies like Rang De Basanti or Nayak or many of the Telugu movies directed by Shankar like Aparichitudu or Bharatiyudu which deal with the same concept of making India a better place by punishing the bad..

5.A literary characterΒ  I would like to meet :It would undoubtedly beΒ  Sherlock Holmes.If there is a second choice,I would even love to meet a comic book character ‘Tintin’.Β  πŸ™‚

6An incident in the history which I would like to witness:It would be going along with all the astronomers who have been till date to space and witness the greatest secrets of the galaxyΒ  πŸ™‚

Valentine’s Day without my Valentine

Filed under: Personal — Deepti @ 1:17 am

It feels ecstatic when you realise the fact that somebody loves you so much that they are ready to give up any thing and everything for you…Wow!!! I swear I would give my life for such people.. Folks,Iam talking about the unbounded and unconditional love of our parents…
Well I have three Valentines every year !!My mom,my dad and my bro πŸ™‚ .Lucky me!!I always get three big gifts from them πŸ™‚ But this Valentines Day had something different in store for me..I was away from my best Valentine for the first time in my life..My bro…Career demands so much from us 😦

Let me tell you guies about my best Valentine.I am the first person whom he tells all his achivements.I have some of the best moments of the life with my Valentine …Lemme rephrase it,all the moments i was with my Valentine are the best.Those loooooong fast bike rides at 12 in the night without of a sweater hugging him tightly,eating an icecream sitting on the bike by the side of the road when it is raining heavily,going out for shopping for 5-6 hours and coming back home buying …. nothing,going for a 2nd show movie and by the time we reached home,the doors of the apartment were locked so we climbed the wall JUMPED off a wall.The list seems endless.

When I am very happy,he is the first person with whom I share my happiness.There have been instances when I was really feeling low,I just gave a call even at 11 or 12 in the night to my brother to came down to my college to meet me…One Sunday,very recently,I was down with fever and came home from college and I loonged to have an ice-cream(well..lemme confess.I long for an icecream almost 3 times a day..I love it till death πŸ™‚ ) I asked my bro (who was working in his office even on Sunday )to fetch me an icecream when he is back home and he agreed.He dint turnup till 11:30 that night and I slept after waiting for him soo long..Finally he turned up at around 12:30 with a BIGGGGGGGGG Ice cream(By big i mean really BIG πŸ™‚ )..He woke me up and put a spoon of ice cream into my mouth..I asked him what made him come so late..Then he reminded me the fact that it was 12:30 in the night and that he had to search for an icecream parlour for nearly an hour to find an ice cream of my favourite flavour.!!! I was speechless on looking at his the unparalleled unconditional love

I remember those times when I teased him with his female colleagues and friends and the way he gets mad over such issues ..Almost every possesion of mine right from my cellphone to most of my accessories are my brother’s gifts..I remember how my friends used to say–“I wish I had a brother like yours …You are soo lucky.He loves you soo much…” I remembered the way we fight and stop talking to each other for few hours just because he snatched away my pencil or my pen’s cap..Lol!!! Cant help smiling at all those…I remember all those times in the past 1 year the incredible support I got from my brother..He made me realise some of the most important things in life–Not to give importance more than a certain extent to anybody,people are not like the way you want them to be and most importantly nothing is impossible–These are some of the many things which he taught me…Though there is a gap of 5 years between us that never affected our relationship.We are always more like friends rather than a brother and a sister..He is very very protective about me and I just love that……
If there is any person in this world about whom Iam very very possesive then that is my brother.I really get furious when I am with him and any of his friends call him and he starts chatting with them.
I am now somehow getting a feeling that do we really have to lose something to gain something?Wont we be happy if we are settled in a small house with a small job and living with our family.What is life without our parents??Do we really have to be away from them just to gain material pleasures??Does our career demands weigh more than the love for our parents???But then I know that things cant be that way.

Terribly missing my Valentine 😦 Lifez soo unpredictible 😦

Filed under: IIIT and me — Deepti @ 11:48 am

Suprised that it has been more than one and a half years that I’ve been in IIIT,but still the caption says ONE year in IIIT..Well I strongly feel that its just one year for me in IIIT.Let me tell you why…

Thanks to my eccentric professors at my college in my Intermediate who were always after me to study because they felt,if I would put a little effort(which I never did when I was in my Intermediate,I swear!!!),I can really perform well..Well there was a healthy competition and that brought the best out of me and I secured fairly good rank in AIEEE,good enough to get into IIIT.
My first sem..Well-o-well.. I continued to be the same as i was in my Intermediate..I was confined to my own world,went home after every two days..I spoke very less and never got involved into any serious relationship with friends.I was very candid.I still remember the first FSIS(Faculty and Student Meeting ) we had on the first week.Professor Sangal asked all of us if we had any problems regarding the HEALTHY INTERACTION.I immediately got up and told him that I am liking this place and the HI but the timings seem to be very odd.Being a “Early to bed and early to rise ” kind of person,staying awake till three in the night and then getting back to PT at 6:30 seemed tough for me and to infact to every body in the hostel .I never knew what was awaiting me.I received a good deal of chidings from my seniors.This seemed confusing to me first.I did not understand why I was being scolded for telling the truth.Well that episode left me with getting one thing into my mind and that is “you cannot be candid before every person..”Except for this episode,there hasn’t been anything interesting and thats the reason I dont feel like including those 6 months into the time I’ve spent in IIIT..
At the end of my first semester,I became close to few of the girls and loved making friends and freaking out with them and enjoying with them watching movies,going out for shopping etc..All these were completely new to me and turned me on.I started loving the place..The habit of running home after every two days vanished and I started going home only once in a week….Then my friends circle started expanding and I fell in love with the company instantly..I never luked at life seriously..They made me do so..I shared a great rapport with all my frineds I was proud of my new friends and was happy to find such a great company soo soon.. As I became closer to my friends,I was introduced with the problems which exist between relationships..For the first time,I saw friends getting apart because of ego problems or what they called then PRIORITY PROBLEMS..I was new to every word to which I was introduced..Priority???Do you rank your friends in an order of priority????I never knew that…I have some of the best friends of my life whom I know since my schooling and everyone was and is equally important to me..I never ranked them in any order nor did they…We don’t at all have this CONCEPT of PRIORITY among us..Those were the best times I’ve ever had.Iam in touch with everyone of them and we are the same even now,though we meet less frequently but we DO meet…I treasure every moment i’ve spent with them..

As I got more and more into these cob-web of relationships,many things dawned to me.For the first time,I have seen people getting possessive and selfish about their relationships,which according to me is quite wrong.I know every single soul here would differ with me in this aspect,but what I feel is if you truly trust a person,you would never get possessive.People need their space no matter how much ever close they are.For the first time,I have seen people slipping quitely from the situations arose because of their mistakes,people who boasted that they would always be supporting others,maintaining silence when relationships were tearing apart in front of their very eyes…Every thing hit me hard and brought me out of my aptly termed FANTASY WORLD–a world where every thing happens as you want them to happen,a world where your friends are like angels,a world where there is no place for selfishness and possessiveness…I couldn’t believe people can be they way they were.It was the time when I had this feeling that every single person at this place is an opportunist,they say they are possesive but are infact selfish to the core and dont bother even if they world gets destroyed because of them.
Of-late I have realised with the help of some of my best friends the fact that everybody here is not bad.They are very good people.Its just that there is an element of selfishness which is in their heart which restrains them from doing what is right.Thanks to this early realisation and I started making many friends and I changed myself from an introvert to an extrovert.Though the bitter fact always remains that I have lost few of my friends,there is another brighter fact that I gained more than two dozen friends(Not a bad bargain what say!!! πŸ˜€ ).This is a great place to live in and guies I swear it would change every person who would enter this place..
I want to thank all my friends for introducing me to real life and helping me coming out of my FANTASY WORLD,though I was made to realise this fact in a very harsh manner…No regrets ofcourse….Now I’ve become very independent and I realise my strong and weak points This might sound really philosophical to you,but everybody down their heart would love to do this..Its been a roller-coaster ride for me.

My one year at IIIT has been very dramatic .Let me see what more is in store for me in the coming two and a half years..
