Game theory of semester exams

Just gave my Computational Mathematics paper couple of days back. Still in the mood for some game theory. So why not the game theory of semester exams !!
The students (we) have developed some great strategies and practices after a lot of research (which I assume if was spent studying would helped a lot).Some of the things that I have experienced, I would like to share with all.

1. The plan always is to reduce the time spent on Facebook, movies and etc and give more time to the notes. But as technology is developing notes are all soft copy now. So as we sit to study, we start the laptop, and first head to Facebook, then to a episode of our favorite series and then to study for a few moments then head back to fb.

2. The most noticeable thing that happens during exam time, the student who never used to get up before 10 in the morning would be the first one to wake up in the morning as seen in the corridor reciting the notes as if it were some kind of mantra.

3.  There is a pin drop silence in the hostel at one point of time, then out of nowhere the whole hall comes out shouting that "kal paper cancelled" or exams are postponed. Everyone shouts and celebrates and then we come to know it was a prank by a few boys. So we sit study again :( 

4.  One most common sight is full on time wasting which we call "bakchhodi" (sorry for using this term). Most of the time wasting is done during the exam time. 

5. The strategy of giving exam is we say "hey god let this paper  go by nicely will study hard for the next one and then before the nxt paper we just Ctrl +V this whole statement :P" 
sounds better in hindi
"Bhagvan, iss bar bachalo agli bar se zaroor padne baithunga, agli semester ke starting se paddna start karunga"
But all these are in an infinite loop which we always forget to mention when we make the deal.

6. Visiting bhagvan ji's ghar is a must before the exams. You don't need to go there everyday but ya before the exams its a must.

7. Then as always you remember GOD and promise you'll leave all your bad habits ( smoking, NSP, and etc) if the exams go well, but then again as soon as soon as the exam finishes you'll be seen with a ciggi in your hand.
like the most famous of them being 
"Bhagvan main XYZ (don't want any controversy so no names) ko apni behen ke nazar se dekhunga bass mera maths paper bacha lena"

8. Oh almost forgot, the essence of giving exams, cheating , this technique is mastered after a lot of practice. Many strategies are drawn up before the exams. Most of these depend on the searing arrangement. This strategy has to be very carefully implemented , many lives are dependent on this. Many of us write a lot many things on the desk, many carry chit papers, and the most common is to ask around for the answer.

This article was also an example of point no. 4. All the bakchhodi is done during exam time only. Please do mention any of your strategy or practice that I might have forgotten about.
Would love to improve upon this so your feedback is most appreciated :P

I hope this does not offend anyone here all was in good spirit.
 And thanks for bearing with my poor language skills.

Bhai Dhuj

The festival of Bhau-beej or Bhai Dooj or Bhai Phota is celebrated by Hindus on the on the last day of the five-day-long Diwali festival. This is the second day of the bright fortnight or Shukla Paksha of the Hindu month of Kartika. On this day, sisters pray for their brothers to have long and happy lives by performing the Teeka ceremony, and brothers make gifts to their sisters. [Wikipedia].

Bhaier kapale dilam phonta,
Jamer Duare porlo kanta,
Jamuna Daye Jomke phonta,
Ami di amar bhaike phonta,

Amar Bhaiyo temni amaar.

Asta va Lista!

Couple of months just flew by, it seems like I was in college, and had just got the news of my internship offer, was getting the famous GPLs, and now I am at 35,000 ft. in turbulence, on my return flight. We had worked around 50 working days and I still can’t understand where they went. All in all it was a very fun experience, with the very friendly colleagues at the office and the best CEO anyone can ever have.  The office experience was so great that it inspired me to dream of opening such an office with such a great atmosphere, and one day take interns the same way our CEO had.
Technically learnt a lot, especially how to design and estimate an application. Got my hands dirty with PHP and made a relationship of life with Javascript. From Fuelphp, to Jquery got to learn the importance of frameworks. Got to learn how the clients demand and how what might be simple to implement can get pretty tough in the end. The User Interface is so important that was a very great news for me, as I lo…

The night before

She is awesome, cunning, and teasing me more than ever. She is supposedly a match made in heaven for me. Every one, even my family and friends think that we are great together. It's like we compliment each other. Yeah, I agree we have had our times, some great ones i must say, but please don't except anything more from the both of me. 

Recently things have been very complicated, it's all long gone beyond the 
small sweet and simple story of us.

She was so easy to understand, so fun, so understandable. I used to love to play along with her, longed for the puzzles she gave to solve and the best part was that there was a reward too :P . 
Those were some great days, school days, long gone days.

Then came the college days and we sort of parted ways, I started to ignore her, well college brings freedom. Ignorance is bliss they say. I liked that funda, but now I think I am paying for that only. 

It's been almost two years now since we had a great time together, and this time is als…
