The Year End Review

Well due to 'circumstances and situations'( a carefully thought lazy excuse ;-))  i have not been able to update my blog for the past several weeks , but I'm just in time for the year end review.

Now strangely enough, whenever main stream media does this they always seem to highlight the negative events more than the good one's and often conclude by saying it was a 'bad' year or if i remember correctly, when i read the year end review of India Today for the year 2001,  It carried a picture of the twin towers burning and the headline read 'lets hope we never see a year like this again'.  Now i understand that the 9/11 attacks were really disastrous but to label an entire year 'bad', irrespective of how many negative things happened  i think is totally WRONG. For every such event there are a hundred stories of hope, courage and chivalry that exist. It is like saying the glass is half empty.

I cant understand why the press look only at this side of the coin, I'm not blaming any particular magazine or TV Channel as such, i just took the above as an example,  rather i think that a year ,being a pretty long period of time, cannot be analysed in the one line question was it good or bad?

Now on a more personal front this was the first year which i fully spent being a college goer and  in which i went from junior to senior. The transition journey in the first half of the year was a real roller coaster ride with so many ups and downs i can't even begin to recollect, being on both sides of the ragging fiasco, an unforgettable fresher's night, the passing away of my dog Chintu, the spectacular 360 thereafter and bidding farewell to our senior batch. It was a humdinger of a ride.

More surprises en sewed in the second half with new found liberty and the the acquisition of a second hand Honda Activa. I finally purchased the scooter after long drawn and laborious process of finding, rejecting, searching negotiating and finally clinching the deal!! The biggest surprise though was the arrival of the juniors. With the new AIEEE admission rules we were expecting around 1 junior from TN but were surprised to see around 7 of them. To say that these were the quirkiest batch of guys and gals i had ever seen would be an understatement. Then came the ever postponed exams and frequent trips back and forth, from and two Bhopal. Finally the sem ended and i was able to spend Christmas with my mom and bro.

Oh my Gosh!! How could i forget this , In September this year i started my blog . I thank all my readers because of whom my blog has recorded 128 unique hits so far( Yippee!! ). Looking forward to writing more and once again thanking all you guys and gals for your support.

Last but definitely not the least I made a lot of new friends this year and had a lot of good times with all the guys both in the Bhopal and Chennai chapters looking forward to more such crazy times in the upcoming year.

It all sems that there's been 1 second injury time this year. For more details see>.  :-) 

Well here's wishing one and all a
