The convocation ceremony for the Batch of 2007 was held yesterday in our college. I am close with a lot of seniors and it was sort of small reunion yesterday. It was really nice to see Alagu, Manas , Paari , Vishal and many others back in college . I missed them all during this first month of college 😦 as much as they missed the college.
I mostly spent time with Alagu after a small time with Manas in the morning. Alagu has become romba mokka, but to be with him is lots of fun. Imagine how would a guy placed in yahoo would come for a convo ceremony like this!! Alagu came in exact reverse. Infact he even had a senti haricut in our NITT saloon ! ( Usually we dont go to that saloon even in normal days 😛 ). He talked a lot about many things and half the time it was like he will be asking me something – “hey do u know .. ” and my standard answer would be a no , he will then start explaining it. You talk to alagu for few hours , and you will come to know a lot of things. We had a lot of fun in canteen the exact nature of which cannot be disclosed here for obvious reasons :P.Alagu also gave me a few tips on involving myself with a open source project which I was already thinking upon. If only Hari could have been in college it would have more fun , (bless his SOC)
We also had his excellecy former president Dr.Abdul Kalam in our college who was the chief guest for the ceremony.He formally inaugurated the Central Lecture Complex which had been in use for an year now 😛 and surprisingly one should note that the college has changed a lots in the last one week just for Kalam sir.. We have got a new ATM all of a sudden out of nowhere. The CLC which was just a building had become some park with properly laid out lawn , with elephant , duck, penguin statues and the whole place has been properly painted , well lit and looked like a perfect place for hanging out if added with a food stall :). I never thought such things can happen so fast !! But it was sad that he did not hand over the Degree to everyone. He gave them away only for P.Hd’s and the gold medalists.
On the whole it was a good day with full of fun. But then good time is always followed by bad time. Facing Cycle tests next weeks and I dunno even whats happening in my class. Will have to start the night outs once again . sigh !
