Dylan Thomas
I fell in love – that is the only expression I can think of – at once, and am still at the mercy of words, though sometimes now, knowing a little of their behavior very well, I think I can influence them slightly and have even learned to beat them now and then, which they appear to enjoy.
Eddie Cantor
It takes twenty years to become an overnight success.
Edward Abbey
May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.
e e cummings
To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best night and day to make you like everybody else means to fight the hardest battle any human being can fight and never stop fighting.
Eyler Coates
We've all heard that a million monkeys banging on a million typewriters will eventually produce a masterpiece. Now, thanks to the Internet, we know this is not true.

Without music, life would be a mistake.

I never dreamed of being Shakespeare or Goethe, and I never expected to hold the great mirror of truth up before the world; I dreamed only of being a little pocket mirror, the sort that a woman can carry in her purse; one that reflects small blemishes, and some great beauties, when held close enough to the heart.
Robert Frost

Exam Blues!!!

So many things to write... I must do more than put in a comma in the morning and take it out in the evening.

Exams are less than a week away. And I'm left fumbling with pages and words and numbers making noise inside my empty head. I hope I make it through without much damage to the few creative neurons that I still have.

I feel sorry for turning down a friend's request to attend a talk at IITB. Especially when I haven't used the time well myself. I should have gone anyway. Sorry, Adi.

Nirmaan came out sometime back. People say its good but I haven't seen a copy yet. Dhruv did a good job of the cover page but I liked the one without the collage in the cubes better. I wish we had had a bit more of coordination as editors in helping shaping up the annual college mag. I also wish we get around to starting an unofficial college blog.

I don't know why I haven't been able to forget this incident. Mani and I had gone along to this Technical Paper Presentation at RGIT. They had invited a Canadian to judge the event. The bastard was so nonchalant and creepy! He probably didn't know a thing about Computer Science and just kept staring at girl's bare bellies much to their chagrin. In the end, the prize went to a presentation on anti-ageing that looked much more of an advertisement and we walked out feeling totally unrepentant.

Bye to blogs until after examtime.

    The IIT thing never happened. Got canceled since they didn't get enough teams to participate. Ours' was the 11th.

    Keep posting mate!

    Oops... Don't know why I was agonizing over it so much. Got to know of The Unofficial VJTI Blog and got accepted as an author! Let's see it take off after the exams!!!
