IDeas’05 memories

I m just going to spk of the good things that i noticed ( its not tat i dnt kne wat went wrong, everyone wud hav his own opinion bt i will leave it for the comming convention team for next year ) …..and sorry if I miss to mention some of the good things.

Let me start by saying that it was the most enjoyable experience on the whole. As all were leaving Kornark(hpe i get the speelings right:-) i had a lump in the throat lik the one i had while seeing Black. Probably I had the feeling of missing all of U …….. and more so I was waiting there and was seeing others leave one by one.

I must say we worked hard ……..ya really hard in our own sense. I m sure everyone of us have sacrificed a lot to be here and also shuffled our priorities. I missd many of the meetings for the convention which were held at the chpt office and also the sandwhiches (or biscuits watever tat was served). But now I feel I should have attended some more because I missd the opportunity of being with U all.

Let me try and desc the committies in one liners and their keywords (consider it as my personal opinion and not of everyones if u find it offensive :-) :

Technical:

“truly Online exisistence”

What I feel is that since we were in the technical team we had to be techno and this was our way of being techno. Also one more thing that I would like to point out is that according to me we ( 4 of us [+1 (bcoz i wud consider patrick to also be one of us)]) worked very well together unknowingly dividing our work equally. Also Nikita’s sincerity surprised me bcoz before i was not sure wat a gal wud do in a technical team ( and i m sorry for my foolishnes ) since she proved me wrong.

Sponsorship:

“Website par Hiranandani upar hona chaiye that aur Microsoft neeche”

Sponsorhip team had all the BigTime members. Do I need to list them? The only drawbak of me doing the spons. brochure was that bcoz of me our accnt went into negative even before sposorship money strtd comming in. I also remember Pinto sir telling me that “if we are expecting 5 lacs then never mind if the brochure printing cost is more . go ahead”

Publicity and Registration:

“everything of theirs depended on other committes and thus they had to postpone most of their plans”

It had the max no of members. One standout pt abt the reg team was that during the first day we had all of the SFITians ( which had 100+ registrations) comming up early,then registering for GNU/Linux wrkshop which had a max of 60 seats……… thnks for this to Prajakta,Patrick,Siddesh & Tarun and others fron their college. It was sad that only SFIT was attendin the GNU/Linux wrkshop. ……..bt guys I dnt have any grudge against anyone watsoever bcoz after the 61 entries

( ….. 61 bcoz after 59, 2 ppl had registerd simultaneosuly …. fuuny na bt this is a fact ) i managed to get in 4 DBITians ( 100% of the DBITians who had come on the first day) in somehow with the help of Tech Team batch and Tarun who was at the door.

Magazine:

“hardwork”

feels great to knw that they had pulld up this mag in just 5 days without much help frm others who cud have submitted articles. I must say even the ISRO dir. was impressed after looking at it though he didnt say anything.

IC&OC:

“ICOC is everywhere”

They were the ppl who performed well finally. I was esp impressed by the hardwrk put in by each one of them. They were the ones who won the hearts of everyone. 3 cheers for them

Program:

“They got it all together”

A lot of work was put in by the PC team. I fell He-manshu lead them well. Though many felt that he was doing a lot of ‘natak and chilamchalli’ bt on the convention days I m sure he was the one on whom the spotlight was. They didnt let us down. I also felt they were most well orgnized.

Few one-liners for U all ….if u missd them:

“You should get in Mahesh Murthy …….. “ — Patrick (lontime bak ……..and everyone likd it again)

“I will need 50k for robotics” — Anurag ( robotics event head ) as tld to Bhavik ……. at chpt office

“SNDT is a university ….and umIT is our college name……… “ –UMITian

“Your team cant be contacted ……. we sud gift Akshay a mobile” — Nirupama */*/05 ( she tld this to niki . i feel it was such a noble thought)

“Haan ….haan main aa raha hoon abhi thodi der main pahunchta hoon…” — Digant 3/3/05

“i hope something magical happens” — Manisha 3/3/05 (comenting on the low regis frm TSEC)

“Ravish Singh ………. ( and something more without sayin sir or anythig else with it ) …………………… “ — Pradnya 3/3/05 (for which she had to hear some firing frm him)

“Aunty …………. !” — Vicky throughout the conv ( i m sure u knw who he was adressing)

“Hey tu free hai kya ………. okie yeh kaam kar …….. “ — Bhavik/Pratik ( frm wat I hav come to kne…frm others… though I must say both of them are sporting enf. … i appreciate tat)

“Padtalidictory …… ( ceremony in which Bhavik and Pratik got targeted…)” — Aseem,Praful,Vicky 3/3/05

“Hey! yeh toh English paper hai …” — Akshay (to nikita when she was piking up times of india at TIFR since we had to pass sometime)

“I m frm SNDT college .. UMIT “ — Nikita 5/3/05 (believe me guys she said it to that ISRO Dr. ….. i hrd it clearly and she said this in hurry bt she may not acept it bcoz she may be court martialed or sued ……….lol quite a possibility [bt this is my side of the story])

“I m the only one frm the tech team …. akshay has only come for his events (webD and programming)” — Nikita 5/3/05 (couldnt hlp it ……. it was the reason i was in the tech team . cudnt have ignored participating in the events)

“Akshay ….akshay ………. “ — Vicky 5/3/05 (when DBIT won the Best participating college award … was a good gesture )

“Bosco Bosco Bosco Don Bosco ……….. ” – DBIT studs ( and some others 2 i guess ) [the trophy is imp for us only for the reason that we can show this to our princi and somhow make sure that we get attendance for all these days …..and also attendance for the next convention beforehand]

” ……… Red Bull …….. “ — Priya/Barkha 5/3/05 ( still dnt kne wat it was bt ..ya it continued for a long time )

” John the baptist ………. “ — Ravi Miranda 5/3/05 ( plz save us frm these PJs ……..)

“He is a dudu boy “ — Priya 5/3/05 (whn i said i drink jst milk)

“Ismain cheez kam hai ………. vapis lake do ! ” – Barkha 5/3/05 ( on having less chese on the top of pav bhaaji)

“Yeh hamare Mahila Morcha ka adyhakash hai” — Voiced by Varsha and seconded by Jalpa,Barkha and Priya finally accepted unanimously.

“Ismain kanda nahin hai ..Jain hai kya” — Barkha 5/3/05 (after having one spoon of pav bhaji.. lol) …….. “chal vapis karte hain … ” — Priya (continud barkhas discovery) ”

“M^1n 13 ba6ky m^^` b&ew^^L! h00n” — Varsha 5/3/05 ( I am sure no one missed this frm Varsha [i m sure the pitch was so high that no one wud have even if he had coverd his ears]……. I didnt write this bcoz I fear for my life……….and wud surely not dare to include this on the website . ;-).

“Yeh sunne ke pehle mere kaan kyun nahin phat gaye” — Akshay 5/3/05 ( on hearing Varsha’s cry)

“Dont do it .. not on the website ……… I will kill you “ — Varsha 5/3/05 ( i wont …and i havent … and will never think of doing it . kyunki mujhe meri jaan pyaari hai)

In all it was a memorable Xp and thnks to Ravi sir for the dinner at the end of the convention which was much needed. Hope to find some more by comming to a post-convention meet whereever it is. Looking foward to see U all there and treasuring all the hectic, stressful, busy, funny, touching, stupid moment with U all.

Final Countdown:
The final sountdown has already started …. the last week or so. Hope things fit in the right place by the end.

rest is fine

Rumble in the Bronx

Today was Jackie Chan’s First Strike ………..(morning show 9-12).It was house full . ya . sold out ! … everyone had come.
There was enough xctiement around to say the least. But an announcement at thelast moment left everyone in frenzy for wuite sometime.
Ya ppl having less than 70% attendance were not allowed for the submissionsuntill they write 2 papers …. lol .. . ( and as the legendsaid “This is one kind of study ….. ” relly its of no use bcozwhoever it is . hes going to copy tat 2 . so make no sense.
Thakur savd my a$$ today .. with his help i touched the magicalfigure of 68.5% after which I got thru after a gruelling VIVA .gurelling not for me bt for Chan himself…. rd thru how … >>He strtd with all the basic questions . like ASK , PSK and FSK .whn he was approaching the tougher ones …. which I havent even hrdof, an Angel interrupted directly after recovering from maleria . nono after some liver or kidney infection ……. heheh . ya she wasMachali . ( Sneha ) . Ya machli interrupted the VIVAS and spok abtMaleria ..then some kidney or liver infections and then also someKetones . i dnt knw wat it is bt I m sure she was bluffing ( XCEPTFOR mAleriA). She even had Elza to support her frm behind.
Even I joned in later . heheh …..Once her nakhras were over and Chan had passd thru all the emoionalTrauma he concluded the VIVAS with some quests on those waveforms.Everything ended fine .. bt I had stil some role to play.I askd him some quest on the sylabus and the weightage etc. JLT.
Before my VIVAS Chan had Ravi at his table. Though I could only see Ravi’s back .. I am sure he was almost crying . ya . he wasnt feelingwell today . and he trid to make Chan full senti .. bt Chan wasdetermined not to falter with all these claims.
All in all he wasted our day for sure.
Rest is fine.

End of Season

I guess this season has come to an end. Ya u right I mean the techfests have come to an end.

ISAAC
Was under a little preseure while going for ISAAC because this was probably the last festival and that I wanted to continue my winning streak.
Whatever doubts I had about the competition were cleared when the organisers announced the names of the runners up as Vinod and Shiva… bcoz I was almost sure that one of us would win. Even though I liked their design very much . They were not destined to win.
The competition was tough though and also judges were professionals in their fields. We had Bhooshan again as the judge and two others. Bhooshan recognised me while giving the prize and I reminded him that I was one of the 384 strong Surfunion community that he had referred to in the introductory speech.
I also met Amrita again. She recognised me and was as always very friendly and cool.
Also, Akshat met me at ISAAC.
In all it was a nice experience to end the season on a winning note. Also got a Wireless KBD and optical mouse set. Overall was gr8.

Will study a little of DCOM today.

Performance this sem:

6 colleges

6 wins in Web Ds
1 win in Tech Debate
1 win in S/W Presentation
1 win in Robotics
Many times in Finals especially in C Programing

Plans for next Season:
Paper Presentation
S/W Presentation
Programming
Web Ds
Autonomus

Bye

After 2 days

I am back to blogging.

Mosiac’04
Yep ! I won againg but this time I was second. I was second to the people who I had defeated in Tusnami’04. I don’t mind because their design is better. They have stuck to this design now for the last 4-5 competitions that I have been to and I am sure they will continue with the same design at ISAAC too.
One good thing is that i also won second in the Open s/w competition. I am sure my presentation did the trick. It’s not that CRMProbe my fianl year diploma project isn’t good enough but my presentation was the deciding factor is what I feel.

PC Upgrade
Was planning to upgrade the PC and finaly did it. Upgraded the HDD to 80GB and RAM to 128 MB. So, finally I have 100GB HDD space and 256MB RAM. . good na.
Well one of the reasons to get a second HDD is that I am planning to stop using Windows and only stick to LINUX. I will install Fedora Core2 on the 20GB HDD. Looking forward for it!

Anant Chaturthi
It is the 10 day of Ganeshotsav. Planning to go to Juhu Beach for Visarjan like the last two years. The atmosphere there is great. Also I have heard that if you make a wish in ‘Ganapatis right ear then it is fulfilled. I have started believing this !

CN Test
Tommorrow we have CN test. Will try and study.

Exams
Will have to get a lil serious about studies now ! One thing good is that I am at par with everyone w.r.t the journal work.

Tsunami 04

Today I had been to Tsunami 04 . Met Grezzel and Princvel on the way to Thakur college.
I must say that Thakur college is good infrawise. I liked it. But I always fell that my college is good.
Also, met Pradnya in the college.
Web D:
Well the web D event was quite well organised. We were provided with loads of images.
I must say that I din’t like the whole thing because it was not the same felling when I participate with Ravi. i dnt know but something was missing. There wasn’t any team work . nothing. We kept on arguing for quite sometime.
Things like marque, frames . and his color combos … suk. Especially I don’t like when he just says things without thinking. But thats Ravi. I am thinking of participating in some web D competitions alone.
Well I must also say that we finally came back to our senses and made it !
Ya the site turned out to be gr8! Everyone liked it ….. everyone !
After:
Came home directly after the competition.
May be I screwed up with the money Manav gave me. Lets see tommorrow will go to college mostly and settle the whole CSI account.
Tried to study but wasnt in full form.
Tommorrow:
Well theres the traditional day in college and the notice brd says ” You can celebrate the traditional day after college”
Rest is fine.
Hope we continue the winning streak of this sem. …………… !

CSI Meeting

I had completed my DCOM journal and was already to submit and get it all corrected. But then I had called the CSI meeting that disrupted all my plans.
First of all ….. the council members suk. They have to be pleaded to attend the meeting.
Now about the meeting:
There were around 15 people who were attending the meeting. I started pretty well but may be I continued the opening speech too long …
The meeting was called for the Nation Convention … I conveyed all points very clearly to the best of my knowledge.
New college website:
Checked the new look of the college website .. its still in the approval stage. Just a passing thought that I could have made a better website than the present one.
Thought about tommorrow:
Tommorow I’m planning to attend the Tsunami … TCET Techfest. Lets see how things work out.
Planning to study now .. its already 11:25

Akshay 24×7
