Freedel ‘06 was awesome…

Filed under: Uncategorized — Abhinav Sahai @ 2:24 pm

It was events time at the ILUG-D. It was my first event with the group and the experience was just awesome. A lot to learn and a lot to explore. It seems whenever I get a feeling that I know something and I stand somewhere in the student community, something good takes place and the feeling vanishes and the feeling ” I should know more and I am nowhere” just takes over. I guess anyone can get that feeling if he sees equal aged people giving presentations and talking like they are equal to people of double their age. It was embarassing when I met two third year CS students giving presentations like anything, and that too on topics which I had never heard of. It just dissapoints me. And then it gives me inspiration. So thats what keeps me going.
As far as the event is concerned, it was seminars, talks, workshops, fun,T-Shirts, beer, chicken and a hell lot of other things. We, the RKGIT Team, were volunteers and so could not attend many seminars but it was always whenever we could scratch out time we just scraped to attend anything interesting. There are a couple of things to be shared. First is that the ILUG-D is filled of people who are bachelors though not by age but by the way they work. Everything is left for the last minute. and then too they are late. Its almost like we work. It gives us a friendly atmosphere for working and we never get the feeling like we are working with people who are actually quite older than us. Thats what makes the working even more pleasant. And after all working with professionals is altogether a great feeling.
Some time ago I spoke of working hard and partying harder. And last two days have been an amazing example of that. The entire saturday all of us worked like anything and in the night it was an entirely a dfferent scenario. Beer pouring everywhere, accompanied with all sorts of dishes – veg or non veg. Me a definite non veg lover so didn’t even have a look at the veg stuff. We partied till midnight and then had to move to Gora sir’s place to have some rest. And I must mention I saw just another example of Gora sir’s flexibility. Try to get a feeling of this. Morning he comes at 9. Helps around with everything. Then takes a 3 hour hectic workshop. Followed by the usual works and attending talks with equivalent interest. He never looked tired, I dunno how. And then at night he looked the perfect party animal. I heard that he had 6-8 bottles of beer. Had all sorts of food and then was perfectly fine as he wrote his address for the cab driver. For only one instance we saw that his legs faulted. When Dhiraj offered to hold his laptop, his reply just stunned me. He said ” I can do this till I have teeth left in my mouth “. Its all about determination I guess. He made us perfectly comfortable at his home and next morning we all left early. So I think I do not need to say anything about him. I am speechless.Well that does not mean I am taking away credit away from anybody else. Each of them was equally determined for their works.
The other thing I would share is that fo the first time I saw real an actual geeks. They knew just everything and anything. Ranging from computers to geography to science to any other field I should say. It just thrilled me. They even won a bet from Raj sir and that too about networking. Huh!!
I think I will keep on saying till anyone stops me. So rest is left foir next time when I have the fotos. So keep checking.
