Right so another one in the sack. Just came back from the examination centre after writing, probably the most important of all the competitive exams(realistically speaking) The All India Engineering Entrance Exam, aka AIEEE. The exam was good. The AIEEE had taken a leaf out of the the IIT book, by changing the pattern, well it was sort of innovative. The paper was easy actually, though not really easy, but comparatively easier than last few years, another indication that this one could have high scorers. The examination centre was OK-ISH. I think the exam council, not only AIEEE, even IIT and probably also EAMCET, have this unique way of alloting centres. What they do is, they note down our address, and keep that as centre of a circle of radius 20-25 kilometres draw a circle on the map of our city. And almost as though it was an unwritten law, mark a point on the CIRCUMFERENCE of this circle, thus alloting to us, our test venue. So far all my centres have been a one and a half hour journey from my house. The roads are narrow, the heat is incredible and the traffic is mindblowing.
Coming back to this year's AIEEE. The paper was easy like I said, but then this wasnt really tricky, pretty straightforward, unlike its sibling, the biggie-JEE. This had pretty strightforward questions, once you attempted it and knew the concept and got an answer, you could be assured that it was the correct answer, without having to think twice. I have made it a habit to mess up maths in every exam I write, and AIEEE was no exception.I did P and C really well but didnt have enugh time to really nail Maths, something which every 2 outta 3 serious aspirant must've done today.
At this juncture I'd like to announce my feelings towards the usage of ball pens or any pens during an exam. I SAY ITS BOGUS. But then its prolly just me, because this tactic doesnt work in my favor, atleast it didnt to some extent toay. I lost 12 marks because of marking the wrong option and later realising it, but it was too late to change anything then. But i guess, its all in the package of the exam, no use complaining about it. Que sera sera, what will happen ,will happen.

I wanted to be a writer. Wanted to get into journalism, write a best seller, yeah all that. I was almost certain to go that way. I used to write articles, stories, take part in literary competitions and so on. It was all good. Untill the following summer. The IIT-JEE bug was fed into my head. It was stuffed deep into my head, and no body let me shit it out of my body.
Summer came and went. I decided I still want to write but will come to a halt for these 2 years. Prepare to get in IIT, then will get back to writing. How gullible was I?
Anyways, everyone were dissapointed, my teachers, my friends were shocked, "Abhe tu engineering karega bhe? You are better than that, go do your thing." "I'll do my thing after 2 years" I'd tell them. 2 years have changed me. My vocabulary has been screwd, I've stopped reading novels for almost a year now.(C'mon, One night at call centre isnt a novel now is it?).
I think it has something to do with the sort of company I was in. Uptill school, it was good. But in 11th and 12th, I was surrounded by these guys who had only IIT on their mind, and nothing else. Well when you stay with drug addicts, you become an addict you're self, similarly, staying with them, I started to talk like them, Hyderabadi hindi mixed with Telugu started to take over my English. My sentences would now comprise of 3 and a half languages. And the number of swear words in my lingo too increased at a rapid pace. The internet didnt help me much either. Blogging and chatting has increased my usage of SMS style language. The otherday, on ORKUT, I met this guy, and told him "btw", he asked me what had I just told him. I took it for granted that a 19 year old dude should know what BTW is. But then, it was just me. I realised, the fault was within me.
Rap music didnt help my english either. I mean how do you expect a person to speak and write better english when all they hear day and night is "They is treating us right, We was chilling and shit". All this began to take its toll on me, I would actually use words such as "ain't" or "wassup" in my english paper, and I began realising that no man, something has to be done.
I've decided, after the exams, I mean once all these competitives are over, amongst the long list of things I've to do, READING must take top priority along with losing weight. I'm going to sink myself into hard core literature by Ayn Rand, Salman Rushdie, Khalil Gibran and the likes. Though I will still listen to rap music.

She was every man's wildest fantasy. Hot, sorta dumb, young and rich. For a moment it looked like she had it all. Then some grave career mistakes, and well portraying her self as a hollywood ho, didnt help much to that either. She realised she had to act quick, so what does she do? She kisses Madonna. That puts her photos back on page 1. Then after a while, she has to do something radical again. Now what? Ofcourse. Getting married in a hotel lobby, in jeans and a cap, a marriage which could'nt last a week. Annulment. But she wants to get settled too, doesnt she? So she hooks up with Kevin Federline, who is incidentally commited, but what fool will say no to Britney Spears? So now what? They get married, and he knocks her up, and they have a beautiful baby. But maternity duties have taken their toll on britney. LOOK WHATS HAPPENED TO HER!!!!!She looks like his MOM!!!! Posted by Picasa

Last year, I had gone to B'lore to spend 2 weeks with my many cousins, uncles, aunties etc etc. One such uncle and aunt(masu and masi) had to attend a corporate party, and asked me to accompany them. I told them I'd feel bored and left out there. PLus corporate parties is just major ass-kissing playgrounds, what would i do there?
My uncle told me, this bloke is different, and he isnt you're average businessman.
"Who is he?"
"He is a brand maker/promoter"
"Oh you mean like Prahlad Kakkar"
"Not so much into Ads as Mr Kakkar"

I went along anyways.
It was like a rave party man. 16 year olds at these parties are like little puppy's with their tongues hanging.
And this guy is pretty cool. He's damn creative too. Apparently their board room, where they have their meetings is a huge open space in the building with few steps, you sit there and discuss.
I had to take a leak, I went to the toilets, though nothing was mentioned I clearly understood which door to take.
It was something like this...

Hyderabad, is away from the sea. It has Hussain Sagar at its heart, which isnt exactly a water body. Hyderabad's weather has had a major change in the last 72 hours. Couple of days ago it was fine. Like, this sunday, I had my IITJEE, and it was scorching hot-41 degrees, 42 degrees, and climbing steeply, thats hyderabad in summers. Its hard to go out in the afternoon. However the last 2-3 days have been different. The days have been hot as usual, with me feeling like baked cake, thanks to this nest I have on my head, which also weighs a Ton. But, once the sun goes to slumber, the weather takes a major U-turn. Its as though the weather gods are having rave parties everyday. Thunderstorms for the last 3 nighs, and one going on as I type this entry. The thunder too is louder then most thunder's hyderabad has witnessed, and it actually feels that some gods are farting upon us, as though trying to tell me, "Listen Kid you already have enough on your mind, with all these exams, I'm sure a little thunder and lightning wont break your spirit."
Yes sir, thunder wont. However, power cuts will. Especially long power cuts in the afternoon, while the heat is burning my butt. The power cuts are like an added attraction this summer, as if summer wasnt bad enough. The power cuts last anything from a few milliseconds to few hours. Thankfully, we havnt had any of hose in the last 2 days. I hope some at the power department, whipped the asses of those dudes who were messing around with the power transmission to my area. Anyways, lets hope peace lasts.
As of now, the thunderstom is still going on, and its raining. I love standing outside in my balcony, with a cup of coffee at 2 AM while the rain drizzles onto my face. Posted by Picasa

OMG, I've got to tell this to someone. Thought might as well share it here in my space. Ok this came in the newspaper somedays back, The municipal corporation of Hyderabad (MCH) has enforced this law, that if it catches anyone urinating on public property such as walls, or roads, they will tranport the guy 5 kilometres from his current location at the time of downloading.
I found this rather amusing. It was funny because, Hyderabad authorities are trying to make the city something like Singapore, ok thats an unforgivable comparison, but what the heck.
The thing is this "punishment" can sometimes work out in the guilty's favor. But the probability of that happening is quite negligible.
Now to the more funny part. Imagine, the person who is urinating has parked his vehicle, say a scooter next to him, and this municipal van comes and takes the guy away. The guy says, Hey I have my scooter over here, how will I come back if you leave me 5 Kms from here. The MCH guys would say, We dont really give a crap. Then this guy would be like, ok why dont you give my scooter a lift too.
Now whats going to happen is that, such a rule being implemented in Hyderbad isnt all that smart. The reason being Hyderabad has 6 million people. That is on an average 3 million leaks (considering the women folk dont urinate in public, which is actually not entirely true), so the chances of catching more then one person urinating at a spot is likely. Now it'll be rather amusing for the people to see that 10 guys are being taken in an MCH van, and being dumped on a main road. And the 10 guys have no clue as to what jus happened.
Another funny incident that could take place is if the van that is on its way dropping people 5 Kms away from their "Crime Scene", gets stck in traffic. Thats gonna be wicked man. Just picture that these, all they did was take a leak, and now they have to spend half an hour in a van stuck in a traffic jam, and then gettin dropped 5 km away. Man thats just so funny. And just so that we're on the same wavelength, A mans gotta go when a man's gotta go. Though I agree that a women has also gotta go when she has gotta go too.

jee-2006. It was obvious that this year's JEE was different. For the ones interested in JEE and its related areas must've read the paper's on 10th April, and hence know about the new pattern.
The new format was like a tight slap on the faces of corporate institutions. NOT a single institute could predict the paper to be like this. While this turned out to be good for some, it proved to be fatal for some. Your's truly, like always is caught in the middle, neither having screwd it up , like many of his peers did, neither nailing the paper so as to be confident of clearing. He still has doubt in his mind , as to whether he will make it.
The thing was that, this time the questions werent tough, but were simple. Not even tricky, direct straight forward. I think except organic chemistry, rest of the paper could be answered by any hardowrking EAMCET-AIEEE preparing student. Solving books like IRODOV and D C PANDEY wont help you score in these exams, since I remember them asking a direct question from H C VERMA, in JEE 2006, a book that is looked down upon by many people on account of it being "simple".
I felt maths was tough. Many found it easy. I dont know, may be I messed it up somewhere, but then no one really knows, till the results come.

Hours after the JEE was over, students rushed to their institutes and vomited the questions onto their lecturer's head. By now all the major corporate institues have come up with their "ORIGINAL SOLUTION". Yeah they're original all right, some options which werent there in the JEE can be seen in their solutions, so that way yeah they have been quite original,
One more thing, one on close inspection will see that more than 50% of question's answers dont match. I have myself referred to FIITJEE, Resonance and BRILLIANT's solutions. All three have different solutions, contradicting each other. While one institute says that they are the "TRUE PLACE WITH ERROR FREE SOLUTIONS", another offers Analysis, and expects to tell you your rank by feeding in your score. I doubt you will get the proper response because after all, your expected rank will depend on how many other people have fed their results into the site, and my intuition tells me not more than 15% of the total students will give their data to one particular. No, thats not going to happen. I suggest all who are really confident of cracking JEE 2006, sit back and relax, and the rest who are unsure, prepare for the upcoming exams like AIEEE and BITS. Peace out.
