And for those who are still unable to grasp the significance of this word called ‘junta’, beyond the displayed meaning, this is the most common lingo almost across all the IIT’s. Every student but yourself who is in campus constitutes junta.
And then there of course are words like: Chem-junta, Civil-junta, Footer-junta, baski-junta, give-up junta, stud junta, Ap junta and on and on.
Junta, miss you all! Waitin for the next sem to happen!
On a Monday evening I suddenly realized that the coming Wednesday was so near! Nothing unusual to speak of but then I had an end semester exam on Wednesday and I needed to devote all the energy I had towards mugging for it. ‘All the energy’- this phrase kept reverberating for some time and I decided that I shouldn’t go online till the exam was over.
Today is that Wednesday. Well, finally the exam is over! I answered everything in the three hours test. (I have already scored 35/40 in the quizzes and if I am lucky I should get an ‘A’ 🙂
So when I finally went online today, breaking my two day fast, it was a good feeling. The first thing that I could do was to login to my gmail account. And as you can see here, so many mails! Yeah, makes me feel good of course. And there’s one more thing that’s making me feel better and that is that I proved to myself that I do have some will power. It’s just so irresistable not to let your fingers reach out for the keyboard. Hurray, I beat all temptations! Feel like a winner!!
I am not sure if I replied back verbally but I definitely waved a good bye. And she was gone along with two more classmates of mine. Though she had said (and I had believed) that she felt good, I didn’t really feel the same for myself. I was sad. But then, I had never thought about how ‘I’ was going to feel anyways or else I would never had decided to go to the Airport at the first place! It was all about making her feel good and that I had done. At least this gave a sense of joy. A total expenditure of hundred and seventy five ruppees (add ninety ruppees auto fare and twenty five ruppees for a filter coffee to the ’60’ that you can see in the pic, which is nothing but the entry ticket to the airport) for the couple of minutes goodbye session was worth the smile. Meet you after two months! Have a nice time in Spain…
Another close friend of mine who reached Kolkata today called me few minutes back. He is accompanied by yet another close friend and the two of these guys will be staying in Siliguri in the summers. They should reach Siliguri early morning tomorrow. Meet you guys after two months too!
Life without friends around you is just so different and so annoying. Today I know all these people, with whom I love to be with, are going to return after their interns are over. But soon, we all shall be leaving IIT once and for all. The mere thought of it is so damn cruel and depressing!
Don’t get confused by the title! It’s Narmad+mango=Narmango!
This mango which you see in the pic, was made to fall from the tree by Senti (he used football for the purpose) yesterday. The fruits haven’t ripened yet, but then I love the taste of raw mango!
Have written a small post on the Civil Speak blog…
Well I’m almost decided with my internship now. Today I met this guy in mash’s office, who is likely to offer me an intern starting this June, in his Chennai based company. There’s a construction project that has just begun. It’s near Mahabs and that means, it’s going to be an almost one hour journey daily to the site. Yeah, it’s an on field work and I am pretty much excited about it.
This building that’s coming up is an industrial building that aims to get LEED (leader in energy and environmental design) certification with a Platinum rating from USGBC. Well, to put it in a sentence, this rating would mean that the building is energy efficient and environment conscious (if you can interpret this at least).
I dressed in formals after a long time today (shoes and all..you can imagine)
Well, Chennai is still hot, but somehow getting used to the temperature. Catch ya..
