[Memoirs from the Past]

Just got a pretty forward mail from one of my good friends.

Too very true…


Have you ever watched kids
On a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rain
Slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight?
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last.

Do you run through each day
On the fly?
When you ask "How are you?"
Do you hear the reply?
When the day is done
Do you lie in your bed
With the next hundred chores
Running through your head?

You’d better slow down
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last.

Ever told your child,
We’ll do it tomorrow?
And in your haste,
Not see his sorrow?
Ever lost touch,
Let a good friendship die
Cause you never had time
To call and say "Hi"?

You’d better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last.

When you run so fast to get somewhere
You miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift…. Thrown away.

Life is not a race.
Do take it slower
Hear the music
Before the song is over.

Written by a terminally ill young girl in a New York Hospital.

[Memoirs from the Past]


Yet again came the wrath of the Cycle Tests at our department and we stay here to bear the burnt. Exams all went worse from the status of bad in the last cycle. Grades, don’t know, where would they land by the sem end.

Whatever I still remember the "One Exam A Year" schedule of my Under Graduate college. How nicer were those days, just one exam for a full academic year. And the course so designed that we can finish it off in one month flat prior to the examinations.

But alas those days can never return, and we can’t take a U-turn.

Just keeping my fingers crossed and hoping to pass out with a Grade.

I am 22

[Memoirs from the Past]

So here am i announcing, with the success of the Infotrek just a few hours ago, that I am turning 22 this year’s birthday. 🙂

Birthdays are always great, and one like this is bound to be exciting and fun. Everything was just turning out fabulous. I got the new cell from Mom and Dad, then just yesterday’s great victories and the loving friends. Its all too great. I love it.

Had the traditional party at twelve at the night and had my share of all phone calls and all. Then the day was great, went out for lunch with my friend and then dinner in the evening with the GANG. 😀

Had loads of sweets all around.
It was all bright and beautiful.

So here wishing myself
A Very Happy and Prosperous Birthday.

[Memoirs from the Past]

"So came the contest again,
With the mightiest of its wrath,
And honoured the ones who achieved,
All laurels in their path."

As one of my very good friends, says "Adding feathers to your cap", yet again the caps of many people became heavier, by the newly added feathers, and thankfully a few them landed onto mine too.

This time around the competition was cool, with lots of team coming from the BEs along with the teams from our department. And we at MCAs did excellently well and won many prizes.

Three of them landed on our teams’ lap. Marketing, Surprise and Dumb C.
Dumb C was a great achievement, for the first time on our group was able to pull it off, and we won the second prize.

Surprise Event came as a surprise to us, since we were fifth in the prelims and coincidently the fourth team didn’t turn up giving us the opportunity and we came second.

The biggest win was the Marketing. We topped the prelims and the finals too. 🙂 We got the product "Gunda School" to market to the general public. We were kinda busy with the other things going on and so didn’t prepare overnight. The event was at 2 o’clock and we started preparing at one thirty. Initially we thought of backing out but then it would have been bad. So decided to give it a go, with the only rehearsal done outside the hall just ten minutes before, we went on stage. By the time we left, we were on top, with no doubts cast anywhere. The audience in applauses and laughs. And the result was no surprise.

Then I was short listed for the System Analyst too and did a great performance. But for the fourth time in a row, I was not able to get the prize for it. 😦
But anyways the judge gave a noteworthy mention though.

And yes the glorious moment for me was during the end of the function before the awards ceremony. The judge Mr. N Sekar, announced me the best performer during the event and awarded me with a memento. It was jubilation at its peak, the audience just bursted in applause. It is least to say that I was flattered. It was great, just great. On of the memorable moments in my life. 🙂

That was it. This time around the event was organized in a more efficient manner than the previous year. And the stage coordination was meticulous. Kudos to the juniors’ batch, who have a great coordination and organizing sense.

[For the uninitiated ones, Infotrek is the annual intra-college symposium conducted by the Students’ Chapter of ACM at NIT Trichy. The hosts are the students of Masters of Computer Application, of the Department of Computer Applications, NIT Trichy.]
