Few thoughts before starting:

Yesterday i read an interesting status message on facebook. It said:
"Two most talked about topics these days are Sachin's 100th century and Aishwariya's baby, but none of them are delivering!!" I couldn't stop laughing after reading this. India is going mad over an unborn child just because he'll be born with a "Bachchan" surname. Isn't it so ridiculously funny. Just think about that little soul who hasn't even entered the world. For him circus is already on and that too at full pace. So much of unnecessary media speculation about when the child will be born is getting inadmissible now. I wonder what will happen when "finally" the child will be born. Then, people will start talking about his name, his horoscope, his expected career(on the basis of horoscope only!!), whether he'll live upto the Bachchan surname or not, etc. I mean please spare the little kid guys. Let him lead a normal childhood!!

It's november and hence it brings back the memories of end semester exams. I'll write a separate post about end sems later on. An interesting part of our end sems was "Previous semester results". Confused??? Well, admin people had this strange habit of declaring semester results in between the end-semester exams of the next semester!! My friends from other colleges always found this weird. In their colleges, results were usually declared within 15-20 days of their semester's completion. But... DCE was different!! There was never an official mention of a date for declaration of results. I remember during end sems, rumours regarding results would start floating in the air and generally results would be out within few days of beginning of these rumours. Because of the prolonged duration of time between our semester's completion and result-declaration, we would vaguely remember the subjects of that particular semester, forget about how the exams went on!! You people might have seen movies like 3 idiots and wake up sid. Both of these movies had quite apt result declaration scenes. The scene in DCE was no different. The entire result used to be displayed on a notice board and within minutes(maybe i should say seconds!!) the place would get overly crowded. Being girls, me and some of my friends had to rely on our male friends who would somehow make way through the crowd and note down our marks. With our heart beats at peak, we would take a look at our marks, take out our calcs, and calculate the percentage. And then, we would run around to ask each and every "accessible" person about his or her marks. On hearing someone's marks less than ours, we would be elated at our hearts and sympathetic by our faces whereas in the opposite scenario, we would be jealous at hearts and appreciative by our faces!! Toppers were addressed as "ghissus". Sometimes, our marks would deviate too much(most of the times negative deviation and sometimes even positive deviation!!) from expected. At such times we would doubt the checking capabilities of our faculty members. However, our toppers were beyond such deviations. I always wondered how come they managed highest marks each time even when there used to be wide variations in the marks of other students. They were truly champs i must say!! I fondly remember all those hysterical moments....

Breaking news: Aishwariya Rai has given birth to a baby girl in the middle of my post!!! May god shower all his blessings on the little one. Finally, indians can stop thinking about when will Aishwariya deliver and start thinking about other things. Something like do we have another Miss World??? :P


  1. Well,I have never been to a blog like this before but now I think that its really an interesting thing to write it up for others..Nice initiation by you & I really appreaciate your efforts..
    So do keep writing..!!

  2. Hey... thnx a lot!! n keep reading.. :)

  3. Wow... wonderful description...!!
    And one thing that you missed is Dayskies, someone will call them that result has been declared, and then they'll start calling every second friend to know their marks, and the first thing next morning, they can be found glued to the notice boards... :D
    Unfortunately I barely had any surprises of getting unexpected marks... :( they were almost the same +- 4%

  4. @akshay sir: i didn't mention dayskies because most of the times we used to be in the college as usually results used to be declared on some examination day... Thanks for appreciating!! :)
