Compering and Me

I was always interested in compering. I don't exactly remember as to when i became so crazy about it, but yea,there are certain things you just don't seem to notice when its growing, you notice is only when it blooms to the maximum extent and appears in front of you. And my college has indeed given me a good foundation to develop something which i never thought i could do.

1)The first time I compered. Guest lecture-1st year.
I was in my first year. Just one month in coll and we were having a free hour. A staff from our department, Shanmugathai Mam, came to our class and announced that there was going to be a guest lecture the next day and asked for volunteers for compering. I wanted to give my name but there was some inhibition and I succumbed to it. My then class coordinator, Satish sir coaxed me into giving my name and finally I gave my name. The reason I was not very much for it was because it had been hardly a month at coll, all of us were new and we were just getting used to each other and the college and staff and I dint want to experiment on something new right on the first month, not that I had stage fear! So I gave my name and all I mam handed me a paper and all I asked her was, 

After a break of 6 months!

oh my!

Its been almost 6 months since i got to update my blog. And yea, I've not become lazy, just that I had my priorities on many other things.

some things worth mentioning during this 6 month break from blogging.

* college started and I'm in my 3rd year now. felt really good. Just dont know how the two years passed by and I really mean it, I enjoyed life at Sairam, despite what many say!

* I was given a splendid opportunity for compering ,again! I was called to compeer for the Induction day in college( and yea I plan to come up with a post regarding the compering!)

Why Hue and cry about Capitation fees?

The complaint:
For the past few days, the engineering and medical colleges of Tamil Nadu have come under the scanner for collecting exorbitant capitation fees. Parents of the so-called “Aspiring” students have put forward a word of complaint and The Government has created a board to keep a check on all colleges to see to that the fee structure of the colleges is in accordance to the norms established by the government.

Why capitation fees?
When the issue of collecting capitation fees was raised, I was told that according to the Government norms, for students who enter a college through counseling, a maximum of only Rs 40,000 could be paid as tuition fees and another Rs30,000 for transport and other fees. Practically, none of the colleges can sustain with a mere 40000. Every college needs to have a good infrastructure, the most important criteria when it comes to choosing a college. They need to have sufficient classrooms, adequate lab facilities equipped with the latest technology. They need to have enough teaching and non teaching staff, of good caliber and intellect and they have to pay them well. Since most of the colleges are situated away from the city, they need to have buses running all over the city. They have to provide good buses; you need drivers and assistants for that. And then there are lots more, its not a simple task to run an institution. So apart from tuition fees they collect money for transport and development and many other criteria. This is what I was told.

Being yourself!

People laugh at me. Coz I’m different!
And I laugh at them, coz they are all the same.
That’s the power of attitude!

Everyone yearns to be successful in life. People reach the top rungs of the ladder of success through hard work or even sheer luck. But there are people who almost change themselves entirely to taste success. Of course, human beings have to be flexible and we have to be on par with changing times. We have the power to think, to distinguish the right from wrong, good from bad, and we need to change for the better, the way we think and the way we see things from our perspective, for our well being and emotional satisfaction and not just for materialistic pleasures.

Happy birthday! Happy birthday!

Yea…that’s for me.

I bet no one in this world was as ecstatic as I was on my birthday eve. The reason? I was supposed to have college, but because of the LTTE problem, the government declared holiday for ONE WHOLE WEEK! Isn’t that a lovely way to start off my birthday?
I was elated way above everything. My Birthday, My special day, was going to be all the more special. From almost 9pm, on my birthday eve, I started receiving calls from my friends who felt they wouldn’t be able to stay up till 12 and speak to me then. For the first time in life, I told mom that I was exhausted, talking on and on for hours together, something which took her by surprise as I always keep chatting about something or the other. And finally after a good round of calls from my friends, thanks to them, I slept by almost 5 minutes to 1am.

Kya Jodi rab ne bana di yaar!

After SRK’s latest movie was released….I was fortunate to get tickets for the movie within the first week of its release…and arrey yaaar…..kya story….kya movie….kya acting thi SRK ki
After reading the reviews about the movie in many leading newspapers…I was actually disappointed….coz people kept saying there was a flaw in the storyline and it was not one of Aaditya Chopra’s best…but seriously…why on earth do we go for movies? We want some entertainment…some time away from the strenuous and monotonous routine of our lives…some time to relax; with a pop corn and French fries…or rather…I watch a movie only for the mentioned reason
