dilli ka traffic....ekdam jhakas

i woke up this morning singing "happy days are here again"....i mean what could go wrong with the world....the beginning of 4 day weekend...no coll to attend...but i found out that this happiness to ephemeral...and soon vanished when i took a dust bath en route to ansal plaza where i was to meet a frnd...

einstein said that human stupidity is infinite and i found myself echoing the same thoughts when the "uncleji of the year" award recipient crossed the road looking in the direction opposite to that of the vehicles...wht made him do that we cannot ascertain...but it surely made me use my disc brakes to the fullest...i had barely put the incident behind my back when i was behind a bus,another bus was coming from the other direction...and the drivers must be buddies is my surmise since both stopped for chit chat not giving a damn about other ppl on the road...patience and me share the same relation as the japanese and spicy food...so impatiently i waited

after their conversation i took my bike to the left side of the bus and i had hardly finished patting myself on the back tht wht i wonderful rider i was ,i saw a rickshaw coming wrong side was coming towards me...god bless india i thought and i waited for him to pass...

to consummate the ordeal,after a kilometre or two,we cannot be sure since the author was busy cursing the dilli traffic,overtaking a car,the driver of which decided suddenly that he liked to be on the right side of the road..needless to say without looking in the rear view mirror...and not a mild turn,a steep one at tht...as if he were to meet aishwarya rai if reached the rightmost side asap...

enough railing abt the traffic,went to M block market today in GK...made me realise tht delhi is d best place if u r looking for natural pulchritude...i languished at d fact tht NSIT is not near any such place

gtg now

hostel life rocks

one of the many advantages of blogging is that it keeps u updated with the fact that you are not doing anything constructive in ur life...speaking of which the NSIT hostel is the best place for....we have an almost 4 day weekend in the 8th sem...and the time is wasted away doing nothing at all...very soon i'll be awarded my Phd in zilchology and i'll become a consultant on how to idle away time...

played cards till 6 in the morn yest...and had beer...watched a couple of movies...played virtual tennis on the LAN...thts how a typical day goes here...n the best part is u dont feel any regrets...

sorry for not writing for such a long time...the fu**ing PC has some prob...and it seems that it'll take an eternity to get repaired...

gtg now...will chip in with more in the days to come...

cheers

To B.E. or not to B.E.

Since time immemorial,we have been befooled by the parents and the society alike,that once you get into engineering or medical,you wont have to work hard...After you overcome obstacles and beat thousands and thousands of people to get into a decent engineering college,they say all the slogging will be over after the 4 years of engineering,work hard and get a good job.Then you to beat another 1.5 lakh odd people to get into a top notch Bschool.You work your ass off and get into a IIM.If you thought that the hard part was over you are mistaken ,my friend...in a bskool you'd get hardly 5 hrs of sleep.and then the job which wont even give you the time to pause and think where you are going.All this rat race for whom......whts the point anyway.....

Why is the concept of education so twisted and skewed up...ask any bschool aspirant and ask him why do u want to do an MBA anyway...and he'll come up with all sorts of incoherent answers...how many people want to take up engineering coz they really really wanted to do so...hell we dont even decide our branch,our rank does...

many people take up career options because it is the logical thing to do...or the peers are doing it...or theres loadsa money involved...why dont people do something which comes from within...wht abt passion and doing what you really like...how many of us have the balls to stand for what we really believe in...Do we actually believe in anything...why are we involved in this futile and maddening rat race which has no finish line.....

i'll put an end to these musings lest you think that i've lost it completely

saw BLACK today....touching movie...i'd be decieving my blog readers if i said tht i was crying uncontrollably but i'll confess my eyes got moist couple of times during the movie....

my troubles seem so miniscule as compared to physically handicapped people...i mean here am i cribbing and whining about the fact that i didnt get any calls from IIMs...n there are ppl who dont get to see,hear or speak....imagine whts its like for them...someone has rightly said...I cried for I had no shoes untill I saw the man who had no feet.

we all should be thankful that we are really fortunate...n we should make a consentious (i'm pretty sure tht i've got the spelling wrong) effort to help the underprivileged....

with tht i'll sign off...

Ah..the incessant holidays are finally over

the wait is finally over....after two months of prolix and drawn out holidays...i look forward to joining coll from monday...not that coll would be any fun...but still atleast it would be different...i was starting to get bored of the same routine...friends on star world at 7 then on zee english at 10,will and grace at 10:30, caroline in the city at 11 and then read a PG wodehouse till sleep...

two books i tried reading in the holidays were mein kamph and my experiments with truth(autoB of gandhi)...both are magnum opuses in their own right in terms to capablity to put u to death...the former due to its enormity and monotony and the latter due to gandhi's incompetence....the only thing that can beat these two books would be a lecture by DKU...for the uninformed non NSITian...DKU is our microwave teacher and take my word....hes ennui personified...and the best part is he'll teach us this semester...

as an engineer u learn to put up with lots of things and lack of pretty faces in the campus is one of them...and i know this is the proximity to valentine's day and the fact that i havnt been with anyone for the past one year talking...but thts the way it really goes...the only .001 % pretty girls are colder than a penguin's bum...i've never touched it of course...but i'm assuming it must be pretty cold...


thts that for today...will chip in with more as the college starts.

adios

First Post

Hi,

i'm rajesh hemnani,in my final year of engineering at NSIT,Delhi(dont blame u if u havnt heard the name of coll...i hadnt heard it till i joined it)...it is generally said that blogging has been the prerogative of the sucessful...people who know me would vouch for the fact that i dont qualify in that category

for the uninitated who are wondering as to why i do not classify myself as successful....i have been vegetating for the past 3 and half years in engineering and have a couple of software jobs...i dont knw if you are aware but engineers with software jobs are as common as ice in antartica...so i dont take pride in them...

cudnt make it thru CAT ..98.33 %ile ....no IIM calls....tighter than a foto finish dont u think...so there are times when i consider myself as useful as a one legged man in an ass kicking competition...still i havnt given up hope...

this blog would be about my random musings...the way i see things...so read on...

ciao

P.S.- if you are wondering as to why i chose espieglerie as the URL of my blog,it is my favorite word after nincompoop...the latter not being used for obvious reasons...espieglerie means a frolicsome state...as to why Mudane Reality as the title...you'll get to know that in my further posts.
