Last 60 Days in Nirma – A Good Bye Note

3 and a half years.

So it’s really been that long since I wrote about my first 60 days in Nirma: First 60 Days of My Journey in Nirma

To think of it, reading that post again makes me wonder how true it is when we mock the theory of relativity saying that time flies when you’re enjoying.. It almost feels like yesterday when we had to come to Nirma on Saturdays for ‘Yoga’ classes and how we used to play basketball before Yoga.. When we made our very first ‘electronics’ project 😛 All those water level indicators and electronic dices 😉 When we used to buy our so called ‘tut-pages’ and yea those semi-log sheets… and how we then turned to not buying them and instead borrowing one from our friend who borrowed two from his friend who had three and God knows if anyone of us actually bought any tut-pages or graph papers anymore and maybe it was just a glitch in the law of conservation of material 😛 Of course, there’s this other glitch where even if nobody from your batch has their files complete, and even though nobody neither knows the answer to any of the lab questions nor does anyone have any source to find answers from… somehow every single student of your batch will still get their files complete and signed the same day 😉

It feels like yesterday.. (more…)

Silent Wishes

Today is about someone.

I didn’t say “Today, it’s about someone” you see.

I didn’t say I am gonna ‘write this story’ about someone you see. There’s a thin line of difference between writing a story about someone and writing about someone.. writing for someone…

And a person is only as good as you think they are :) So imagine the best you can… and this person would be better to me. Will I be exaggerating? Yes I will be. But let it be this way, won’t you? If I have to make a person, I might as well make the best living thing 😉 (more…)

Childhood-nostalgia

When We Were Young

♫ Happy birthday… to you!! ♪

♫ Happy birthday… to you!! ♪

♪ Happy.. birthday… to dear “so and so” 😛

♪ Happy birthday.. to.. you!! ♪

And then the smiling boy let out a large wholehearted “Thanks!” to his friends and classmates who stood up to sing the song for him on his day..

The little boy ran to his bench, searched his bag for a big pack of eclairs that his mother had kept near his new lunch box… a shiny yellow one with a ‘Winnie The Pooh’ sticker on it. He had been waiting to tear the packet of chocolates since weeks, his joy was the proof. (more…)

Hi.

So its been a busy week for me and in fact everyone at my college. Exams.

5 hours of sleep a day, no idea how many hours of study, an hour of day-dreaming, a ‘do I still have my i-card?’ moment, 3 hours of writing supplementary sheets and ‘one’ pen is what it takes to be me surviving exams. For others, probably the only difference is 0-2 hours of sleep a day and a ‘where IS my i-card!?!’ moment. Oh and sometimes zero pens.

And after 8 such 1.5x faster days including a Sunday break, here we are. 5/8 semesters far from the first day at college. 3/8 near to the last. I don’t know which one to celebrate though… Its more like a birthday you see. (more…)

Beatutiful Rains

Rains, Sisters, Mathematics

June, 16th.

Clear sky, hot summer, vacation time. I was working on a team project at my friend’s home. It wasn’t unusual for me this vacation to be busy, working. In the past 1 month I was busy (read enjoying) with my sister’s wedding. Today, I was busy on a project. Just as we were getting started with the project, my friend gets a call. It was regarding our semester 4 results. Yeah, you can check the date again, its June 16 I’m talking about!

So we packed the project work and ran straight for a cab to Nirma. After all it was the ‘suspense of the month’ moment. All those core subjects studied this semester, but my mind was on the one subject that we had all studied since we were born. A subject, the last version of which was taught to us this sem. Yes. Mathematics. Maybe I was more than curious to know how my last Mathematics exam would result.

AC cab, college visit after a month, what else do you need to forget the heat outside the cab huh? It felt like August. Cool, kind of rainy… or maybe it was just my imagination. (more…)

Friendship

Cake, Friendship, Birthday & Other Never Fading Memories

I would have not got the chance to write this if that one person hadn’t come just 5 minutes late on the 2nd day of our college orientation program. I can imagine a movie like scene where he would be hurrying from his hostel room to reach college on time only to be late… Little did I know or he knew that in that hurry, the seat he chose to sit was the one next to me in the 2nd row. It was the 2nd seat from left that he chose. I was in the 3rd one, if I remember it correctly. (more…)
