Life at trichy>>

Hi everyone out there!! Its been really long since I posted my last article...well the reason for this delay is quiet obvious...guys i m back in college...back in trichy!!

Got a new hostel room, far better than the last one...name of my hostel is garnet (its a kind of precious gem...if I go for the literal meaning)...neways its the nomenclature they…the college administration use for the hostels here, probably cos’ the south indian people are too fond of gold jewelleries and stuffs related to it...ya ya including precious stones as well...Name of my last year hostel was jade(again a kind of gem) before that it was agate and coral....for girls its opal...It actually creates lot of confusion in my mind as well, am I studying in some technical college or some gem-jewellery designing school..





So I m back on grill, weather is too hot, with scorching sun right overhead almost throughout the year, just the inverse what I m used to at home. Yesterday met few of the fresh bloods...well I mean juniors and definitely will be meeting another bunch of them in coming days...College as such is still the same, still there are few exceptions which should be given due respect and must be mentioned, My architecture department got some fresh landscaping treatment in the courtyards as well as at the portico, new hospital is coming up almost 80% done, mostly they will be shutting down the old one. New central library cum media center is coming up and will be ready in another few months or so. Well there are always some bad news everytime I return back from my vacations, this time its even worse!! These webmasters(the internet server guys) blocked around 30000 websites and prohibited download feature on web..they made my life miserable...you know what does no-downloading mean - no music, no books, no softwares...they literally limited my resources by 1000%, and i m totally cut-off from the outside world, these guys don't understand a simple thing...WHERE THE HELL I'LL GET NEW HINDI AND ENGLISH MP3 HERE IN DOWN SOUTH CAMPUS?? Coming back to college it’s not that pleasant as it used to be earlier but if you talk about the living standards, definitely that department got a face-lift...garnet rulezzz big time!!

Chao!!

College life is always fun... The labs in our college were named after some big scientists like Bohr, Photo, Quantum... :P

"These webmasters(the internet server guys) blocked around 30000 websites and prohibited download feature on web..they made my life miserable..."

Well, it's not just in college, even in many of the IT companies it's the same. In fact, all mailing sites like Yahoo, Gmail and all blogs are blocked in Infy. :(

I like the picture that you have put on your post. If you have done it, great going.
I was a little nostalgic when I read this piece. But I cannot help it but say, that please dont use sms language when you are writing. It simply puts the reader off and in some way I feel it is distorting the language.
Cheers

poonam said...

hmm..naming convention..well, its pretty simple strategy followed in every campus, (college/company).. semi precious stones.. good way to uplift and identify it..
much to the livin sophistication.. and bannin.. well guess you must get used to it.. there'always more number of misusing folks then the one using it for good. they r just takin care of those...

anurag said...

hey..thnx alex...probably this the condition in almost all colleges....which r govt undertaking!!

manisha said...

ya true

manisha said...

true that these south indians ll never understand our (north indians') probs..
and ya bt this blocking websites..... true that its irritating but i feel its necessary esp in hostels where thre s no rok-tok frm parents, where ppl think they r very free n can do anything......
i would advise u to njoy ur coll life as mauch as poss since its a fact that nitt s far far better than many other good colleges in terms of not only studies for which to its already very famous but evn these facilities which u njoy there n take all 4 granted......
i realise all this now at my home
u know what here ppl hv a totally diff view abt nitt they think v r some fundoos.......... do keep maintain this thru ur works....
all d best..... :)
