Ok. I'm already starting to behave like a bad blogger. I haven't come to the comp centre for nearly a week now and I seriously need to regularize this. Well, I met Gopal online today and he has reiterated that he is going to Harvard on a 125% scholarship to study "Economics and International Affairs" on an integrated doctoral programme with a non-degree granting programme in Energy at MIT (I might have jumbled the terminologies a little bit but you get the idea) without finishing his boards in India as a graduation is not a criterion for admission into Harvard. Oh, and he recently had a meeting with the director of IIT Delhi and his book on energy independence has just been listed on Amazon . I met Rutwik online too. Tarush, Rutwik and Karan are planning a day off from college. I hope they enjoy themselves and have some decent Indian food after the continental stuff they have been eating for the past month (They are only about an hour away from each other by train i
I'm sitting in Delhi right now after having an anticlimax saturday. I started out with high hopes of having a fun day but a series of bad timings robbed the day of its flavour. I woke up at 8 today and got ready after breakfast by 11 or so. I then hitched a ride with Nonika, my cousin, to Nehru Place where I did some shopping and then came back with 4 chicken rolls. I called up Aku didi, who'll be joining Google sometime next month in HR and obviously demanded a treat from her. She said she would be home in GK by 4 and she was there by 3:15! We thought that we had a good chance of watching a movie but we got delayed in our departure to Saket and we decided to wait a little longer and watch Bas Ek Pal in PVR Spice but we delayed too much and we lost our chance to get a ticket there too and we ended up playing pool at Tayaji's place. There the lights went off and we returned home by 8:30 :( Anyways, another 1/2 day is left and I feel like sleeping so that's it for today.
Well, I got into an accident just after I posted my last blog entry. A scooterist, tearing down the main thoroughfare failed to brake and banged into me. Although nothing happened by the grace of God, I did realize that my life was precious and could be snatched away from me by a small mistake. Well, enough of senti stuff... I had another chat about E-Biz with Ashutosh. This new fangled concept of network marketing does not appeal very much to me. Also, I'm worried about the legal ramifications. As of now, I don't think I will join. Soumya and me are currently playing a long distance chess match over e-mail. He's playing the "English Open" to confuse me as usual, but beware Soumya, I have played with plenty of good opponents here and I just might have improved a bit... Tutorials and Practicals just keep on coming throughout the week. I just finished 2 tutorial sheets for today last night by 1 am and I am on my way to the 3rd. Test papers for the mid sem exams
Ok. Now onto business. Sushreet is going to Sri Lanka for the international stage of a computer competition. Congrats to Loyola! Also, Loyola has won Abacus for the sixth year in a row. Well, there is some pride to be felt for training the juniors pretty well (although I won't take full credit ;) Today was an ok day in college with plenty of homework waiting for me. Results of mid semesters are coming out one by one. I got 17 + 4 = 21 in a maths test of 25 + 10 = 35 marks. See! I can add! Tutorials are left and Library books have to be returned (not that I read most of them anyways, but they were some source of help.) That reminds me - There are NO good fiction books in the library. What do these IIT R people think - engineers can't read fiction? Anyways, that's all for today. I'll try and update this tomorrow. Atleast I can make it a diary of my college life....
Ok people. I've finally chosen the template, twiddled with the font colours and uploaded the images and am ready to go! I welcome myself to the online publishing world! (I hope no one reading this blog will feel that I have lost my senses entirely, though I believe I might do so not too long in the future.) Hmmm, I think this is enough for the first post.
