The great yellow day and how it all ended















A week back, we girls in the class decided to come to college dressed in yellow on friday, sept 15th, just for fun. We kept our words and yeah it was a sea of yellow or well a yellow river or any other waterbody for that matter, whats important here is to understand that it was raining yellow!...It started out fine, cheering as more girls turned up in "you know what colour", even a few guys [poor them] turned up in yellow not knowing our plan and hence were the joke of the class...we took out our camera and started clicking pictures, merrily posing in a straight line, then diagonally, with yellow flowers in our hand and all other possible gimmicks. what fun it was until it all stopped with a bang...when we were ordered into our class for making [ the traditional class room quote] - "a hell a lot of noise". I got a little infuriated by the turn of events and so spoke out against a certain action taken by the department. This, i guess didnt go well with them. Finally the arguments died down, things got back to normal but it was good enough to dampen our spirits. It wasnt how it was supposed to have ended, but it was one of those days when we plan something and fate decides otherwise. Anyway it wasnt a big loss, we can always plan out one more such day, and one of the biggest lesson, i learnt yesterday didnt have anything to not make noise but to take horoscopes more seriously and that it can occassionally be true...This is what it read like yesterday

September 15, 2006 -You may need to hold your tongue a bit today, archs. People's feelings are much more easily hurt a this time and the slightest criticism could be misinterpreted as the most terrible insult. When in doubt, keep your mouth tightly shut. Turn your attention inward today and focus on your own internal emotions. Try to keep your mental chatter to a minimum and concentrate more on how you feel rather than on what you think.

HaHa, wish i had read it earlier...

Sheeezzz....i have lost it or so i thought
There was a time...when i had an opinion about every sporting event happening in this world...be it cricket,tennis, football or formula 1, i had something to write about...my opinion, thoughts, ideas,strategies and more...but this has long since dwindled down just like the posts in my blog... My interest for the games remain the same, its just that perhaps, i have grown conscious of what i write and how i write it down...there is this mental rope which pulls me back...saying" what do you know about this game to give your comments"... but that rope seemed to untie a little today as i read through my earlier posts on just abt every other game, written in an innocent, free-flowing style...with an attitude of 'to heck with the world'...this is what i believe in...either read it and nod your head in agreement or just forget you read it...that confidence is lacking and the spirit is missing in me today to continue to do the same...but in my first earnest attempt in many months...i will try to write abt the sports as i see it...the sports that i have loved till date...the sports thats the reason for what i am today...

its time to vote
i managed to get a few minutes before i head on to cast my vote, to blog abt it... and being a first time voter, am quite excited about the prospect of having my say on who gets to occupy the big chair. off i go... to cast my vote...adding in a miniscule way to the percentage of voter turnout in the metro...and in a big way re-affirming the fact that we are a democratic country.

Travails of getting an internship

Every summer, ever since i joined college, it was not just the heat, the power cuts and the humidity that came to haunt me, along with it came the travails of getting an internship. Its not mandatory for me to take it up but being in the media stream, the real lessons are learnt in the field and not in the class room. So year after year, every may we take our bonafide certificate and try to get someone to accomodate us in for a month's intersnhip. Invariably we are told "sorry! its all filled, why dont you try the next year"... fortunately sometimes, my profs help us out through their contacts and put us on to some project or research work. This year around, the heat is boring down, power-cuts even more frquent, humididty taking all the freshness out of my soul and also back again - the travails of getting an internship... i have the same good old bonafide certificate, which says that i am"........" studying fourth year electronic media is a student of anna university, only that the year is now 2006...

fianlly...its over

the last day of my fourth year came to a close today... which signifies much more than hearlding summer hols...it means...that the project work which got the class working hard is done with...that am now moving onto my final year in college...that i have placement work this hols... that i should now sit up and decide on what am going to do the day after my final day at college. i know i can't escape the truth...that the day that i would be bidding adieu to my life at anna university is closer than ever before. i have mixed feelings about this... my interest to see the world, desire to experience new things has reached its crescendo...i really want to go out there...want to set out to achieve something big in life...and all this means leaving behind the college life and all the fun. More than my department, its little things like coming to coll in my activa, chit-chatting with friends, enjoying few lectures while despising the others and the best of it all, eating in canteen...oh these are so precious to me that i can't quite bring myself to beleive it could be all over very soon...and ofcourse my dear dear friends...how can i ever think of a life without them. i love them all so much...they mean the world to me...hmmm but as i well know, every stage in our life is a phase that you come to know of, expereince and move onto the next. its this process of moving on thats going to be the most difficult part. i have so much to write about... my campus, my friends, my miracle moments, my poiganant days...well here is my hols and all the time that i have been wanting for more than 4 months... so its going to be a blogathon through this summer...watch out this space...

A good end to the day
After a tough day at college and off it...i had a wonderful time at home in the evening. Thanks largely to a hot brewed coffee made specially for me by my mother and the thoughtful act by my dad when he bought home for me an elegant hair clip from an exhibition. These simple acts of love and care sure makes the life more worth living for...and i wanted to share that happiness to the world...so folks if you are reading this post then all i have to say is "celebrate life"... happy day.
