5 months on……….ths same old story

Filed under: Uncategorized — Abhinav Sahai @ 1:49 am

Five months back I wrote something against UPTU which read like ” Asia’s largest technical University ……” and then followed up within a couple of days seeing the PPL exam question paper that read something like, ” Did the VC ….. “. In the latter topic I had mentioned I was impressed with the standards of the question paper and if this was to be maintained then I will have to study throughout the sem in order to secure some good marks. When a friend read that post, he said, ” Are you serious about studying throughout? ” At that time I said I was very serious…..
Its been five months since that day….the next semester exams has come, due for a finish in a week and I find myself in the same situation again….not studied again and now I recall that posting of mine. HUH ! Haven’t studied again and again impressed with the UPTU standards after the computer networks exam paper.
If I don’t pass then that is solely my responsibilty as I didn’t study but what made me more dejected that I didn’t know the practical questions which I expect myself to be knowing. Really sad on my part. I was really happy to see practical questions and even more happy when a couple of friends told me that these things were not there in book, don’t know but that makes me really happy. What to say now…… I am really heading downwards with no study and no knowledge….too bad on ly part.Hope I recover soon or I should say ” Get well soon Abhinav”.

Oops I did it again !

Why me only?? Thats was the question I asked dada yesterday even before I had been through my scrapbook. While I was figuring out with dada what I should do to prove that I was not the culprit, I thought of showing him what Ms.P had to say regarding the poll. The speed of net had as usual been the speed of light and so before I could see my scrapbook my new Motorola W220 rang, the second only call on my phone, had Piyush telling me that something’s gone wrong. I thought there must have been wild reactions regarding the poll only. I had not sensed danger by then but when I saw my scrapbook I knew I was screwed, that too unneccessarily. EIGHT new scraps! At first instance I did not understand anything. All I saw was Ms.A(1), Ms.B(2), Ms.C(5) having threatened me. (The number in brackets denote the number of scraps they made) The next step was to find out who this Ms.B was (as it was the first time I had any scrap from her), Ms.A being already known to me and Ms.C having given quite a detalied introduction of her apart from her dad’s intro too.
I closed my eyes and lied down as I knew something was coming to me and I had no clue as to how I was going to face this. At first I thought to delete the community straighaway and then my profile too. But was I acting intelligently?? No, as I feel now. Well, by now I had changed my mind and asking for pardon had been out from the brain. My new mobile had been ringing by now every second, though for the wrong reasons only. I lied to someone whom I didnt’t want to, regarding the incident and being unknown of everything. Took those steps without thinking anything and for the sole purpose of buying TIME. That act of mine saved me from blushes atleast at that moment.
Later after thinking of something so that I could defy everything the next day, we took some technically sound steps, though that was very dangerous, but to keep options open I had to do that and play safe. Anyways after all this I returned to my hostel and was given the same welcome which I got when I came back from IPEC after getting through the iGate process. I was surrounded by all hostelers and a flurry of questions were fired on me. Best thing was that I wasn’t serious, atleast pretending not to be. I spent some time with everybody and then came back to my room. Had a chat with the guy to whom I had lied before. Then things cooled down for me as he assured me that I was safe and that people had understood the technical details. I don’t know whether they understood whether I wasn’t the culprit but all I knew was that my name would not be there at the notice board, for the first time for wrong reasons and for which I heaved a HUUUGE sigh of relief.
A mehfil in my room after that till around 3 a.m. after which we went to our best place to remove stress i.e. our dhabas, sapna this time as upadhyay ji has put his shutter down since a past few days. Came back and slept at around 5.30 in the morning, ending quite an eventful day of my life.

A poll, NOT created by me. An act in which every hosteler was an active participant, 150 guyz logged on to the community at the same time for the first time, 7 new requests for the community in a single day (the highest ever), community being active for every second till the poll was removed. Between all this, I buy a new mobile, have some chinese stuff, enjoy with friends, and before I have the last piece of the lemonade the party ends for me with a message. End results are only to say that I am no more. No support for me in future, friends lost in the process, I am the most hated guy in the girls hostel, be it batchmates, seniors or juniors and all I can say is that. ” ???? ???? ??? ??? , ????? ????? ?? ???? “.

Did I deserve to be where I am today? Thinking about everything all the time, people having friends in the GH, some of whom voted too, looking in my eyes with revenge. Mocking me around and pointing out fingers on me. The new bad guy of college. Creating waves around like anything.

I don’t rue that I was the part of it, I don’t rue that people call me bad guy, I don’t rue that they hate me but all I rue is that people along with FRIENDS never had faith in me. Atleast those who are friends,infact I should use the word “WERE” now, didn’t even bother to ask me once that what was the truth. They believed what others said and what they saw without even applying their brains. They would have first taken care of the technicalities what they were talking of, forget the belief they had in me, if they ever had.

Much more to say but not to explain, I think this topic can make me write some more pages if I don’t stop now. All I get to learn from this episode is the answer to “why it happens with me only”. I have to build more faith among my (so called) friends towards me by doing a lot unneccessary talking, which since I think is against my nature being a techie and being a guy who has lot to learn and see much more in life and face even greater difficult circumstances…

At the end of the episode, though it still HAUNTS me each and every second, all I can say is : “May life be fair to me next time”.

We always have a choice !

Filed under: Uncategorized — Abhinav Sahai @ 10:15 am

Yesterday we went to watch Spiderman-3, the most awaited movie of this year I guess, atleast for me if not for others. After a great Spidey2 experience I just couldn’t wait for the next in the series. A year and a half ago I guess was when the prequel was released.
Last time the special effects had been colossal and this time they were expected to be much better. This thought was more than enough that propelled my thought of watching it first day on the really big screen….at the IMAX theatre. Though we had to shell out a few extra bucks than we usually do but the money was worth the experience.
The fights were much more larger than life, specially the first one between Goblin and Spidey….boy it was terrific I should say. Then the next best scene in my view was when Sandman rose for the first time, the way the sand moved was I should say the best ever animation I have ever seen. It looked umimaginely realistic. Infact the most of the scenes invoving sandman were far too good. It must have taken a hell lot of time for producing such sequences…..like the transformation from sandman to a human and vice versa. Terrific I can say.
Well that was all the techie stuff I saw in the movie, what the movie had more was the EQ. A guess it was too much as far as an action-superhero kinda movie is concerned. Even King Kong had an emotional ending and now this one. Definitely the episodes containng the appreciation of spiderman as the hero of the town had generated feelings from within but the romantic sequences hardly stretched a muscle in your body. Yeah a few comedy shots were put in to move your cheek bones but a couple of them even had been a disaster in terms of timing.
All in all a good movie to watch, thugh one might not enjoy it on the small screen and definitely not if you watch the hindi dubbed version, people who’ve made that mistake already, I really feel sorry for them. I’ve even heard this part had a much higher budget than the prequels but this looses out in terms of movie experience. No doubt spidey2 was much better. It seems that its only the second part that gains the best success, be it Matrix, MI:2, or this movie.
One last thing that I would like to share is that I’ve always felt every movie teaches you a lesson and thats what even this movie did. Yes somehow I managed to find that too. I won’t describe that how when and what about that, but leave it for you to explore, htink and most importantly impement in your own lives. It says in one line of Peter Parker… ” WE ALWAYS HAVE A CHOICE “.
