THE NIT SAGA!! part-1 exam

This is a true story and the characters involved in it are two of my best friends.. Since one of them wont ever write this ( well he is prolific writer) and other dont have the habit of blogging , am taking the right of posting this one.... For the ease of narrating am taking up one of the character...

It was during the seventh semester... This was the sem. which most of us waited eagerly from the very first day when we set our foot in this college..semester of placements as some may say.... Any ways after 3 years of college life ( wit a GPA which was falling to an all time low ) I had dropped the idea of getting placed in campus placements... Anyways thanxs to recession I got a perfect excuse of not getting placed , dunno wat shud be my excuse if ther wasnt any recession....Well as always (or I say thanxs to God's grace ) I wasnt alone, like true friends who stand with us during the time of despair ther were a few freinds wit me who also got screwed up.. One among them was the second character in this story..Lets name him "SNC".. Unlike me he was a person of positive attitude.. dunno whether the obama fever has affected him too, now a days he uses the words lik "hope" ,"change" more than often....Well cause of his constant pressure me too decide to do something rather than waiting for the heaven to drop something in front of me....Well after four years of engg. GATE was a straight no... the next option was CAT.. but i haven't started preparing for the CAT-08, Here also he came to my aid-- "we can write the cat-08 just for practise and we shall prepare for the next one" ..even though I was reluctant at this idea he finally convinced me.. Such a caring nice friend., I must be really lucky to hav sumone lik him with me .....

Like the past 3 years days passed even before i realized they were even there...God must have pushed the fast forward switch a bit too often.. As i was quiet busy in watching movies and all ..I haven't realized the day for CAT exam was fast approaching.. One day as usual i was sitting lazily in front of my system listening to some music., he came to my room and asked -"dude wat abt CAT" .. Well for a few seconds i was totally blank.. It took me a minute or so to remember tat i hav applied for CAT and the Hall ticket were somewhere between those DVD's which decorated my table .. Well again the demon inside me was the one who answered his questions... I put forward all the reason's which I could figure out , to convince him ther was no point in writing the xam- it was waste of money,time etc.......and above all we havnt reserved any tickets , so travelling would be like hell... But he wasnt sumone who wud give up so quickly..and when he saw his good words arent making any changes , he put forth his trump card.. The vast number of gals who wud turn up for t xam.. well it made a slight change in my attitude ,but not significant though...then came his second offer.- he had 4-5 gals in NIT LH who he hav met through orkut and he would like to introduce them to me and can hav a short trip to hostel...He then elaborated about his friends how friendly they were..and we all can go for some outing in the evening.... Now this bait was too large for me to avoid..I have already heard some stories about them, eventhough all of them may not be true there must some truth in it. This idea made me excited .Even if I couldnt make all of them friends I could make a few of them (and may be I can make friends of their friends and get some phone numbers..).. and can have a trip to hostel.....Well it seems to be a nice idea rather than sitting infront of my system for the whole day....Hmmmm he is again proving to be a nice friend..I again thanked God for providing me wit such a nice caring friend... ...


As I expected journey was like hell....The general compartment was jam packed and the fact that it was a weekend made things more difficult.. We could barely sleep during that long journey, but the sweet memories of " NIT LH" freshened me up.. Even during the journey he talked about his gal friends there.. And we had a little discussion how to spend the evening with them........ We reached the station at morning , after some refreshments we went straight to the exam hall...... the exam halls wasn't as we expected , it seems boys were more interested in tackling the CAT .. and even few gals present were buried in some CAT texts.. Any way inside the hall it seems all familiar -- like last 3 years I found myself staring at a question paper which I couldnt understand at all...It took even few minutes for me to decide whether to go for a blind marking or to try out some of them...and finally i decided to try out those questions..Well it didnt took me long to realise tat the name CAT was such an absurd name it shud be rather "PULLI" or something like that.. Anyway the unseen terrains of NIT which we were soon to explored soon, kept me awake......


to be continued..............

  4. Nice. Well written. Loved it.
    Now, let me announce one thing. The cunning and manipulative villain that you would come across in this heart breaking story is none other than me.
    Exaggeration is good. I do exaggerate things. But, this story has been exaggerated up to an extent that there is hardly any amount of truth remaining in it.
    A few poeple have been teasing me for some days narrating this story again and again. I desperately wanted to explain my part, but no one gave me a chance.

    1) I never asked anyone to come to calicut with me. The whole idea of writing cat was my friend's. It was him who persuaded me even to apply for the exam.


    2) We had reserved tickets to go to calicut but not for return.


    3) I've rarely seen my friend watching movies at hostel. He spends most of his time for some other activities.

    4) We had plenty of things to talk about on the way. But NIT LH never turned up as a topic. Was that was the funniest thing you could think of to make this story more interesting?


    5) I've never ever told anyone that I had 4-5 friends in NIT LH. I told that I had a close friend in NIT MH and I could arrange our accomadation there. Nice bit of imagination, pal. May be the whole outing crap is a hidden dream deep inside your heart which got out even without your knowledge. May god bless you to fulfill all your dreams.


    5) The only truth in this story is that both of us messed up the exam, but it was pretty much expected. Still, we are quite satisfied with our percentiles.

    Am eagerly waiting for the next post.

  5. hehe....as i said tis isnt my story am writing wat ever my friend ( the other one ) told me....

    ther can be two sides for the same story....and yeah for making it more interesting ,I hav done some exaggeration ( a small bit ) ..well isn't tat an author's privilege... :P
    and dude isnt cool to have 4-5 gal friends in NIT (and am pretty sure it was more than one) ...and dont be soo generous I wont mind publishing other stories also (sms ones ) :) .......

    and i have a given a chance for u too explain ur part also.... so no worries on tat.....
