A fabulous trip

Posted in personal on June 12, 2007 by balajisrinivas

I went to chennai on may 6th to attend a marriage. Usually we have our lab exams immediately after the theory exams. So I planned to depart on may 5th. Unfortunately this time we had it after 10 days. I cancelled the ticket and decided to go by vaigai express ,the next day. I reserved, but mine was in waiting list. “My goodness”, I had no exams on on may 6th which would have spoiled my journey. Fortunately, I was allotted a seat.On may 7th, After the marriage was over, I went to meet Fairly in his room in Egmore. We decided to go to spencer. Lato, Banrap and Feby also joined us. The shopping mal was splendid. All sorts of things were available and the cost was not affordable. Spending an hour and a half, we went to “dollars and pounds”, a readymade showroom. It was rich and Fairly bought himself a T-shirt for Rs.800. Then I returned back my relative’s house in the evening. Then I returned by vaigai express, the next day. My results were already announced on that day. My friends told that my absence on the previous day would be a big issue and sir told that the students getting absent will be prevented from attending the first 3 companies. Fortunately, I was not questioned.

Chariot festival

Posted in personal on June 12, 2007 by balajisrinivas

It was on April 30th, I went to pull the chariot(ther in tamil) of Meenakshi Sundareswarar. Temple cars are chariots used to carry the idols of Hindu gods. Anbarasan and his friends joined me. It started to move at 6.00 am sharply. I started at 5.00 from my home. I heard that it weighed more than 4 tons(1 ton=1000kg). It is very hard to imagine. Around 700 people participated in it. It was a wonderful experience. We dragged with our full effort. We were able to pull only for about 1.5km till the end of south masi street. The actual distance is 5km. Then we strolled here and there getting some scoldings from the police. The people sprayed lot of water on us.We drank plenty of juices, buttermilk etc. Then we helped the people who made the chariot to move. Finally it reached the destination at 11.30am. My legs were severely aching. I had a nice sleep at home. If possible i like to participate next time.

Hats off to Aussies

   Unbeatable Aussies have again won the world cup for the third consecutive time. The team full of talented batsmans and bowlers deserve it.  The skipper, Ricky ponting,a conspicuous personality should be appreciated for his excellent leadership skills. The world cup series was of no interest, since the Indians didn’t get qualified even for the quarter finals. It is incredible and all the fans are greatly annoyed. “It is a collective failure” says Rahul Dravid. Better luck next time in home.

Third year ends

Posted in personal on June 12, 2007 by balajisrinivas

Finally my sixth semester theory exams are over in april end. This semester we had our 3rd internals on alternative days. It was witty . But I failed to prepare for the exams. We had only few days for studying after that. The exams were moderate. Particularly our batch didn’t enjoy holidays after entering the college. We had 4days in first semester,10 in second,15 in third,10 in fourth,15 in fifth and this time a month and a half. But this time we have our placement training. I had to do a lot of preparation for my placements. I have not even started. Anyhow sixth semester was a successful semester.
