three and half years in college..................

This is about my life in BE..........Some people call it Retrospecting
........
Ive tried to be witty in this blog, which was difficult considering the college i am studying in..............


I got about 87% in PCM in XIIth std........ which is by any standards is pretty less...... so that means i culdnt get into all those colleges with big names like DJ sanghvi, Sardar patel.... so i applied for AC patil in khoparkahirne, well it culd not be called an ideal coll becoz it had no facilities, was reaaaallly far away........ man i used to travel 1:30 hrs in bus changing two buses......and i used to do that everyday and used to come home like about at 8:00 pm.... that was some hectic life..... i made some frends , i remember a few names Amol, rudraksh....

Then after a month there was an ad in the newpaper about 60 additional seats in a coll acronymed KJSIEIT (KJ somaiay coll of engg and intfo technology). i jumped at the opportunity and got into that coll..... i got the admission... :D....... Now i travel half the distance than i used to , when i was in AC patil...... well this wasnt an ideal coll too , but the only plus point is that it was not that far away from my place.........

Sem 1:
Well i knew life in engineering culd be difficult and the profs here werent actually making it easy by scaring us to death by tellin how fatal mechanics culd be......... "Once u get a KT u are doomed" thats wat they used to tell us........ and guess wat i did get a KT in mechanics.........
There were 2 div A & B ..... I didnt know ne1 from A div till 3rd sem......and i was in B.
I made lots of frends here.... i was surprised at the number of gujarati people in this college... but still life in BE was in its nacent stage and had just started.......... well i got about 49% in sem 1 with 1 KT that too mech............. and did i mention the usual stuff like assignments, practs sittin all the lectures n stuff....

Sem 2:
Its after Sem 1 i understood the concept of KT....................
With 1 KT I was allowed to go to sem 2................. This is where i came to know most of the people in KJSIEIT.......... My gujarati group dipen, sagar abhishek, bhavesh, jugal........
and others like chinmay, and the gang of girls , shweta, trupti, aditi, medha,archana........
Ok ill start with my group..... dipen always teasing away people with his comments often vulgor....... abhishek named the "contri guy" (well this name came later on in 6th sem) but always gets nice marks ,a scholar and has good amount of knowlege about various things.... sagar got dropped after 2nd yr due to mech Kt (told ya mech is a devil in disguise)......
bhavesh ... well though i have mentioned him in my gujarati group and he is a gujarati, but strangely he talks in marathi in his home maybe the village effect because he lives in bhandup which we call a village.........
and jugal the PJ master a very good frend though got dropped after 3rd yr :(.......
chinmay... a scholar and topper has good knowlege about stuff except computers .....
and now the gang of girls ..... shweta , trupti, aditi , medha ,archana and the others..... always upto something and chatting away to glory........ god know how can they talk so much............ Here i attended many tech fests tho didnt win in any of em...... Here i cleared Mech Kt with barely passing marks (40) .... Yipppppeeeeee.

Sem 3:
With a blink of an eye Sem 3 came....... and with it the inflow of diploma guys (people entering into 2nd yr directly thru diploma)..... Well as usual most of em were gujaratis... i wondered whether this college culd handle ne more gujaratis .. (hehe i m a gujarati myself)....
I met many interesting people dhawal sanghvi, bhavin and others.......
sanghvi the story man thats wat we call him.... always has a story to tell, with his own brand of mirch masala ofcourse.... and bhavin yup has a gf and ull always find him talkin to her......
And ya the usual thing all the assignments and journals were a regular part of coll.... no one used to do it seriously though......

Sem 4:
Neways i got 68% in sem 3...... was shocked at it but it was in sem 3 that i got tagged as scholar though i dont know why...... it was time for reshuffling of classes ..... every time i get to know people better , the college management reshuffles the class (damn those losers).... now in A div... and that too roll no. 1 ....... here i met new kind of people.....amongst them were atri and siddesh...... I didnt know much about them untill sem 5.........
Time was running really fast and soon sem 4 exams were there...... prepared and got 68 again......

Sem 5:
Now it was time for me to shift my home from santacruz to tardeo.... now i used to travel by train..... my companions Atri n siddesh..... we talked about many things , teasing each other with various girls..... here i came to know both of em.... Atri was usefull in getting lectures cancelled and for notes... and siddesh (now has a gf) a pure techie guy used to explain me various concepts........ As the sem passed we met new breed of teachers , most comic of em all Ganesh.... i wonder whether he ever knew what ever he was teaching... atleast it was hard for me to understand with all that noise we were making....... I got 61% here..

Sem 6:
Well this sem was like ne other sem for me accept for the results ofcourse (ull see wat i mean by that). The sem passed with it our masti increased...
I attended my colls tech fest went dud as usual......... Now the exams came....... every paper went good..... but one went more than good , the subject AWP (hail vidylankar notes)....... and the results 70.5% and with AWP = 91 .............

Sem 7:
This is the sem where we had most fun with teachers. Here i met a new breed of teacher... He was only 1 named Vijay kamble..... The new rule was about to be made instead of weekly tests there were midterms....... And this prof had an idea of takin tests . well and we got it cancelled... This fueled a small war like situation ... At one side all the students of A div and at the other it was Kamble and was fast recruiting many other professors too.....
This is my fourth year and with it my proj in siemens with my group members Atri, Dhawal Metha , Me and Mugdha Karande.... All are very good frends of mine..... Plus we had to chose an elective subject..... I chose DCE and many of my frends did that too.... So again class was reshuffled , only this time for more proper reasons.... and i was back with my old mates from sem 1......

This was a sem where we had a particular image with the professors... (the most mischievious class image, as said by shweta) which was again to be ruined be reshuffling in sem 8.....
Vivas came with that Kambles viva , looks like he handpicked the devil who took our vivas.... just to make us suffer.... :(
And guess wat it was this prof who checked my paper and gave me 91 in AWP .
Yea but the main part i got a job in infosys.........

Sem 8:
Well i m in sem 8 now .... class reshuffled (yawn.......) lucky we dont have kamble... B div has him (god bless those poor souls) .......

This is my last sem in coll...... god knows wat the future holds for me.... maybe an MS..... Well i have high aspirations for myself and have set high standards.... which sometimes i wonder whether they are achievable...... but hey u shuld be positive.....
So now just 4 months to go and ive decided that these four months shuld be the best ive had in enggg.........
