Idiot, by choice

Yesterday, i was attending an event supposed to discuss a book, "The Kite Runner." Among the very few audience present, there was a guy, Anand, who came to me and asked for 10 minutes of time at podium. He informed me that he had made a proper research on Afghanistan regarding its history, misfortunes Afghanis are facing and world's view regarding it. I advised him to ask the compare for permission.

5 minutes later, he got permission. At first he apologized for his broken English and then seek permission to speak in Hindi. He started with the map of Afghanistan, and explained why the country is always drawn in war. He then explained tactics involved by Russia to promote its vested interest there. He continued with his speech until he was intervened to stop due to lack of time. Later at night,i went to his room and listened to what he couldn't say there.

Till now, so common. Now i want to draw your attention regarding some facts in connection to this event. Anand h…

Jadu Teri Nazar

Last few days were amazing. Our college has Council of Student Affairs whose members are chosen democratically (Other then popular factors which affect elections, in general like regionalism, we have one more hostel-ism).One of my friend contested for the post of General Secretary of the Council of Students Affair(CSA). All these days, i got to know many things, like how to convince others, how to keep your patience, and so on. Leave this, i would like to share some light moments. Probably these moments will be with me through out my life and will make me smile anywhere, anytime.

First, i will tell you about my friend who is contesting for election, he is super cool, lite but sincere. He doesn't take unwanted tension and there are many things in him which makes me jealous of him like he never waste food, he never imposes himself and the list continues. He is known for his numerous 10 minute sleep, one day he told me," harsh, call Pazi and Yash. I am coming back in 10 minutes…

Wrong Number

In vacation, like everyone, i was also busy with Facebook. But misfortunes followed me there also. There is a separate section on facebook home page called "people you may know", many of my friends have sent friend requests to girls of our campus, and many of them accepted too, so facebook was suggesting them to me as friend. Yesterday,one of my friends Raavan said in very depressive manner,"ladkiyan facebook pe to acche se chat karti thi, yahan pehchane se bhi inkaar kar rahi hai."

There is a girl, we call her hooke's law, facebook was suggesting her as my friend. I dont want to add anyone who dont know me. (of course, we guys know every girl) So, first day, as USUAL, i took a look on her profile and logged off. Second day, again she was suggested as friend, it took my mental power equivalent to attending morning 8 class for stopping myself from adding her as friend. Third day, again her name was there, i thought,"ok..enough is enough." And i sent …

To IIT....

A poor boy, does hard labour, studies in lantern without a fan at 40 °C , without any qualified teacher around the loud noise of machines and gets into top engineering college of India...looks so filmy, unreal. But there is a place, where such guys live, fighting with all diversities called Patwa toli, in gaya, bihar. I have high respect for them, because they demand nothing from government and silently they go on to make their life. They have made adversities their stair to success.

more about them from some media report...
The pattern of success

A weavers' village in Bihar has
100 graduates from IITs and RECs

By Kanhaiah Bhelari/Patwa Toli

Kajal Se Kala Cheej Kalank Hai
Suraj Se Chamkila Cheej IIT Hai
(Ignominy is blacker than black
IIT is brighter than the sun)

This rather odd-sounding couplet is pasted on the walls of many
houses of Patwa Toli village in Gaya district of Bihar. The village
literally takes it to heart. In the last 10 years, 25 students from
the nondescript hamlet have got…

DIVIDE and RULE

I am going to tell you the story of two of my friends Anshu and Akash. After class 10, due to the lack of good teachers in my hometown, students go to some other place to study; usually kota or Delhi or Bokaro. We three also went. I and Anshu did our coaching at FIITJEE Bokaro, Akash went to Delhi and joined Narayna. They both were unsuccessful in their first attempt and they decided to give an another shot. Anshu went to Bansal, kota and Akash clinged to FIITJEE. This year they both CRACKED IIT-JEE.(i haven't yet figured out yet why JEE is cracked and other exams are passed, i guess it is something like Trains are late and Flights are delayed :) Anshu with AIR 8219 and Akash with 8533. After counselling, i came to know that Akash has been alloted Civil at BHU whereas Anshu got nothing. Then i was informed that Akash is from OBC category and Anshu is General.

Well ok. In this summer vacation, i taught Physics and Maths to 3 guys [no gals :( ]. One of them was particularly sharp m…
