My IPL Story !

IPL 5,

Eden Gardens.

What started as another season most anticipated matches, the many nervous moments, 100% support to my city and the team , the nervous checks on the score during the exam nights ! The Dada or KKR battle! Couldn't have ended any better than what on 27th May 2012 ( am not just talking of the victory , but more, will there lets first enjoy to that build up)

IPL-5 for me was one hell of journey as was for KKR ! The team rose to greater heights, stood through thick and thin like the Bengal Tigers should ! I on the other visited Eden for the first time ! Had an great night there with friends ! Gave my 1000% for KKR even as we lost that match we didnt lose our spirit ! Our support only grew more !



The match was against Delhi ! And we shouted our hearts out for Kolkata. We may have lost that game, but joy of supporting Kolkata at Eden was much for me ! I put on the golden colors and prepared for the batlled ahead of us !

Also experienced the infamous Mexican Wave of Eden !


With each four and six of KKR we shouted Dilhi Dilhi Bheegi Billi ! and this got even more intense with fall of Delhi wickets !
but soon the situation turned around !
The Eden had gone silent !  Well that's a big issue ! But we ( viz. Me, Bitto and Swami) didn't lose our hopes till the ball was hit !
We just shouted for Kolkata, it seemed that tomorrow we wont be there ! and we were finishing our quota of the IPL that night only !


Praying for the rains to stop !



And the fun part was when the cheerleaders for the DD came ! Swami just started
"Ganpati Bappa Moriya Dilhi Ki Choriya"
as in we were not having enough fun already !








With the first game down the KKR took off  light the rockets !
Slowly and steadily KKR held their nerves !


One great controversial came for me when DADA came to play in Eden ! I was stuck between Kolkata and the man behind my early interest into the sport.
That i was like KKR shuld win but DADA should be MoM !! :P

With all these behind ! The D-day 27th May came !
And what a better way to celebrate the IPL final than being with the full family ! The full family supporting KKR and rooting for it ! cheering for Kolkata  !!

The house wore a gloomy look when the situation was tight ! But as the match neared the end the tension rose too ! and when it comes to cricket i get a lot superstitious ! ( During WC wore the same clothes throughout ) After all that's the religion i believe somewhat ! :P

Someone just hit a six ! 













Tension !









The atmosphere at the house was thrilling ! Everyone was at the edges of their seat !
I forbid anyone leaving their positions (said na i was too superstitious ) when the match was nearing it's end ! But the end came ! And it came estyle :P




With KKR winning all the happiness was restored  !! All went happily to their homes ! and Kolkata got the Cup !




KKR \m/



At the end of the day #ahappyKKRfan :P

Blitz !!

Life is so fast that it's getting tough to even pause and complete my blog post !

Seems like it was only a couple of days back that the vacations had started. But it's almost a month now and what  I can remember of this month is only a number of TV series and a few movies.  A week long family trip and a couple of get together.

Wanting to write a lot about that family trip; and about the new thoughts and ideas creeping inside my head ! The whole month I spent thinking a lot about myself, about the world, about the ideas I had in my head ! About how the ideas that were trying to crawl their way out of my head.
Finally I think that it's a great idea to start writing rather than just thinking to ! I waste a lot of my time thinking of doing things , rather should concentrate on doing them too.

Wasted a month on thinking now, lets see how I waste the other month of my hols and my life !

I suppose it's time that I came back to the blogging world and try to put some order to the thoughts in my head ! And jot down a couple of them in the cyber world.

A signal to my prof!!

A signal to my prof!!

                          -A  Fucked Up IT 2nd Yr.



Sir, 

Communications IT 402... some say it is the toughest paper of this semester...but for me it's like life or death at this moment.... 


Staring at the notes I feel completely blanked out !! And seem to have forgotten it all... And also lost all my hope
 ( so am watching the Republic Day Parade, it's splendid ryt?... yea aur kuch nahi mila)


My whole mind seems to be wired up and signals are interfering. There is too much noise and attenuation. The distortion and disturbance in the signals is beyond the capacity of my brain.


The mind is telling me to transmit the notes in FM to my brain (less noise better quality signal)  but the heart only is able to transmit in AM ( easier to transmit and receive, greater area of coverage). While the eyes is stuck with DSB-SC signals( requires less power to transmit, so is less tiring for my eyes). 


After all this transmitting and receiving , I have to analyze these damn signals and demodulate them to make something understandable out of the signals I just modulated. 


Analyzing the signals, and the great Fourier uncle with Mathematics Sir ji , come into the whole picture and create a havoc inside me... With all those transformations and properties my mind just 
scrambles all these together to make what I prefer to call "Anda Bhurji" inside my head.




The last thing that I should be thinking actually at this moment , only 10hours before the paper is about all the shit i just wrote... and still am writing. 


Well when a brain is fucked up so much that everything seems fair!! 

Like they say in the marines... It's SNAFU !!

Situation Normal: All Fucked Up.




All I hope that my Communications prof ( who is my HOD also, shit!!) is able to receive all the "DON'T FAIL" signals that I will be transmitting in all the type of modulations tomorrow..!! 


Respected Communications, please don't let that signal die..!


Over and "OUT!! "
by-
A Fucked Up IT 2nd Yr.

It's FUBAR, SNAFU, TARFU all in one go! 

And I am like, BOHICA.

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 also not going to be that great either. She already in my nightmares. I thought we would have been past each other by my first year, but fate had something other in store. So we are back again I guess for the full and final time. But it's all so complicated now.





I feel like twitter is also mocking me "What's happening" and  facebook is  teasing me with "what's on your mind"





I mean curse these social sites for wasting so much time. Rather I should have utilized this time with her, also instead of writing all this rubbish I wish read my mathematics book , it would have helped me a lot and would not have found her so complicated and wouldn't have also been writing this blog. All this time i just ignored Maths, supposedly an engineer's best friend, and now such is my condition that I just ruined such a long relation between the two of us, that now "It's complicated". 


So after all this, I think just study rather than think so much :) 


Hmmmm..... !!!


"All this is in my mind, Mr. Facebook", the night before the exam, this "what's happening Twitter sir".


It's Maths that's been screwing me since child......
Y U NO AS SIMPLE AS U WERE BAK IN SCHOOL DAYS... 










This all the shit that's in my head the day before the exam,
 and hell, I am supposed to pass this paper.

Every time, the night before Exam is everything apart from study  ...  :( while it should have been the vice-versa.





But the night before is like:
( enlarge to see )

and thus i guess i need to study :(

One Single Hour of Hope | @Earth Hour

The Earth Hour Banner!!

Well call it  luck or not but mother nature does reward to good deeds.  Just as we were all prepping up for the Earth Hour, mother earth blessed us with the much longed for "Rain". Its a great feeling after days of scorching heat and makes you remind of how beautiful the nature is.

It was a great feeling to put off the lights in my room and make other do it in our hostel. Just for one hour putting your light off and coming closer to the nature, is a very much refreshing feeling. 



A slurry effect because of the low shutter speed 


A few lanterns from the
lantern making competitiom


The college nature club "Prakriti" organised a candle march for the students and also a lantern making competition for this event.  Just as usual, I was there, with my camera and guess what had a great time!! And got an idea to do my bit in the earth hour, for our nature :  taking pictures and also made video.

I guess every help counts :)



Each candle seemed to me as a ray of hope, a prayer, a gift to the mother, a token of love towards her. Each candle represented us and at that time I got some hope that we were still thinking about our nature, still had some sense to SAVE EARTH.

I plead those people who didn't come that day, or didn't bother to put off the lights, to just think about it, and please see this


That night the hope, a light from within me rose , made me think about our surroundings, our mother Earth. Well I at least started to think, did you?








If just the thought of an Earth Hour, a single hour, on a day, once in a year can help me so much, why can't we have one each month at least ..? Once a month for our mother nature, our precious Earth?

Please spare some moments of your life to just think about your mother Earth too.


I will try my best but please also help me....

"Thiobacillus Ferrooxidans"

My whole gang had BioTech as the  open elective , so I aslo joined them despite the fact that I  loathed biology to the core of my heart as much as I hated Liverpool or Spain (The football team i.e.).

The Biotech experience started off with a couple of  ' GPLs '  ( at the hostel) from my IT mates....!!
The first day of the class itself  I was late and made to sit in the first row. And had a nice sleep.

In the week itself the IT dept made its mark by being called from the last row to the first row for shouting and disturbing in the class, alas  I missed out on that.
The first day of the class I heard something about "thiobacillus ferrooxidans"  and till the end of the syllabus I just know one thing about mineral biotech that there is a bacteria named thiobacillus ferrooxidans, and it is used for some mineral extraction. That was the last day that I had heard anything in class or remember anything about BT-430 syllabus.

We had some great experiences in the BT-30 class which took place in a small classroom a bit
outside the main building.

We had to profs who took the classes. The first one was  Dr. A "ummmm!! " D. sir ( i forgot his full name) and the other was Dr. K. "sir, sir, sir" Aikat. There is some reason to why i gave them such nicknames.

Dr. A "ummmm!! " D. sir,   seemed to me to be as if  in a transfixed position, and say "ummm!!" a lot , while giving notes. The fun part about this prof was he would repeat the line around 4-5 times each time. And as I didn't pay attention I used to write some lines twice also.
I still doubt whether he used to say "ummmm!" OR "yuummm!".


The other prof, who took "3/4" of the classes, was Dr. K. "sir, sir, sir" Aikat.  His nickname came because we just to "sir, sir, sir" him every time as way to convince him, to not to take our classes or to leave us early. Also one particular thing about him, was he remembered most of by name, and his favorite student was S. Chandrasekhar Iyer or our Swami,  the devil's reincarnation (according to Aikat sir, which was quite an accurate observation).


The class timings also were awesome, they started 15 min late and the attendance would take another 10 min. So, in  the end we would start off around 5pm and then by 5:25 all of us would keep shout "Sir, sir, sir" so as to he would leave us early. :)


One of the best memories would have to be Aikat sir, taking attendance and calling Chandrasekhar to which, Swami's reply was:
  "Chandrasekhar is my dad, I am Swaminathan"
to which even the prof couldn't control his smile.  Also there were en number of times, when Aikat sir, caught either one of from our gang for talking in the class.

There was once a case when the prof had finished of dictating notes, but still Prasoon ( Nagraj) was scribbling on his notebook, for quite some time Sir looked at him, but in the end could not understand what the nag was up to.

During the end of the class days, we would all unite in some massti in the class esp, me, the devil , Bittoo, Nagraj and Pali. It was one of the best classes I had ever gone too, full of massti and coupled with full on boring lecture, the last thing we knew was leaching leaching leaching

I myself had some great time with my seat reserved beside the window and the cool breeze with an excellent view to pass off my time...

One day we had our test for this subject, which we all gave with some great team work. I didn't have any freaking idea about the things they asked in the test and my only way to get something was Nagraj, we had great time at the test and thnx to my frndz got out of it quite well. And also thanks to the
Wikipedia team for some great answers..!!!

At the end of the syllabus the whole elective batch had a great reputation in the front of
Dr. A "ummmm!! " D. sir, to this fact we all still how?

But to the other teacher, we were as if
"Good riddance to Bad rubbish". 
I still guess he was only joking about this because we had a time in his classes.


The Lazing March Weather...!!

The March weather is so Lazing .... that i had though of this blog around mid march one afternoon sitting in the boring  BT-430; my mineral biotech elective... well the extent to which i was bored also reflected on my notes and chain of thought. The weather outside was just perfect. It was dusk and the sunset was just romantic. The cool breeze from the window striking me was heavenly. The cool breeze and the topic of bio leaching was just perfect enough to extract every ounce of sleep that I had within me that evening. Just as to divert all my sleep I started thinking, I don't remember what but random thoughts...(may be Bird Watching..   :P )


And just like I wandered off into my world of thought until I heard the class breaking off

Absconding!!

Well you might be wondering where the hell did I run off too. Yeah its been a while since my last blog. Well lets say was a bit busy with work and some introspection (would try to share some of it later) . Had a lot many things going around my small head to handle. But being busy also taught me many lessons and lol sure did it help me lose some weight. The past couple of months just flew by my life and am still trying catch on with it. Feels like I am in a void. 

The experiences i had (will share them later) sure did help to get to know myself better.And also helped me make a few close friends. Worked  for two fests consecutively and photographed another (to be in further blogs).  Just as the fests were over...the massti got converted to chaap as we have our midsems now. And this is the period (during my exam time) during which I pen down most of my blogs.....dunno wat it is that all the random things are to be done during this period of time...

Oh and did i forget to mention that during this time, I also worked on a movie project  "The Classified"  as the cameraman.....though was part of it for only a few days...didnt see the start of it...but didn't miss the closing scenes of it tooo... had some great time and a heck of a experience behind the camera...!

But the most important things that happened and the most masaledaar experiences that happened with me would be a bit tough to share though...also made some life changing decisions of which some are for my best and some not.....

Besides all these had some greats moments and also some lows during this time.....

Just after having a great vacation in North Bengal with my family ( another blog due!! phew a hefty backlog)...and celebrating new year's our new semester started....came back to DGP, and we were assigned our works for the fest.....and hence starts the 60days of  dunno wat,  which was rather fun though....and now miss those days....feel bored .....so...

After a lot of my faltu ka talk will be finally able to blog now. Finally have some time to me... but that too i guess i'll find some work or another. Till then a few more blogs have to be penned down now. ( The list has grown exponentially thanks to this  post.)

[TED Air] I liked this TED talk. Luis von Ahn: Massive-scale online collaboration http://www.ted.com/talks/luis_von_ahn_massive_scale_online_collaboration.html TED Air (http://goo.gl/2Aftm)

A very noble idea for mass education. And very simple way to learn something new and take the population to our advantage!!!
