Don't know why but suddenly felt that while writing on this blog earlier, i missed out mentioning one very important thing, my college. Yes my college IMS ,most of the ppl wudnt ve even heard its name, but for me it is a place where i met some great ppl, made some friends for lifetime and learnt a lot, in short had a blast.  So in my memory space, no doubt, IMS has a big chunk to its name, right from  appy,nids ,amu(ppl i cant imagine i cud survive without talkin to), canteen (the chai & manchurian which i must ve had  more than 10000 times), the chana chor wala bhaiya, the historical parking( testimonial to numerous luv stories & breakups as well), the library we went only to take snaps,the "sahchintan" where there was evrythin happening except fr chintan,and the variety of human species that i came across during those 2 years which added to my knowledge of OB( my HR friends would know this), these are some of the many things that i owe to IMS.

Never knew that once out of that campus i will be missing it so much, but now that i m no more able to even visit the campus when i want to, i realise that i ve started missing all those things about IMS i once used to hate. I remember cribbing all throughout, about how students in private colleges so easily get the priveliges that we needed to fight & struggle for. But realized that it made us stronger and more prepared for dealing with the outside world.

Enough of serious thoughts, coz in IMS there is one thing people dont know anything about ,"Being serious", you enjoy at any cost, if you have back to back papers, semester course getting winded up  just 2 months, 70% students getting debarred or learning 4 days in prior to the exam that the timetable has changed.We ve seen & experienced it all, still had that amazingly cool & serene smile i think is typically the characteristic of an IMSian (I think IMS should start courses like"How not to take tension, and be relaxed" )

Had just one thing to tell all the people across the globe, studying in a college:
“You have few years to be irresponsible here. Relax. Work is for people with jobs. You’ll never remember class time, but you’ll remember time you wasted hanging out with your friends. So, stay out late. Go out on a Tuesday with your friends when you have a paper due Wednesday. Spend money you don’t have. Drink ’til sunrise. The work never ends, but college does…"

Lazy lamhe

"Weekends are a bit like rainbows; they look good from a distance but disappear when you get up close to them.  ~John Shirley"
So true and apt, as i write this post on the end of one more week, i am surrounded by some feelings i am sure all of you can relate to, feeling of dullness, sadness and the emptiness that the Sunday eve brings with it.You plan the 2 days right from the monday eve, and end up doing just 20-30% of what you intended to, but nevertheless there's always one more weekend for the rest of the tasks.

I also had similar plannings in mind for this weekend, but ofcourse my plannings never include any sort of work, and much of it is covered under the head "sleeping". But as i said i was hardly able to do 20% of it. All i did was shopping like crazy, roaming on the commercial street with my roomie (  since we just got our salary recently & had few more days before we would start running short of money) , ate all time favorite street food(  Vada Pav, Panipuri, etc etc & some more etc.) and finally funniest of all spent the Sunday roaming around bangalore in buses and doing absolutely nothing,just pure chilling out it was. But loads & tonnes of pure platonic FUN.

And ofcourse as always there were plans for next weekend, next to next weekend and a bit about the one after that also.
Don't know what and how much of it is really going to take place but one thing is for sure, i really wish all my weekends be a ditto of this one. Simply Amazing !!!!!!!
