Ragging: Govt Colleges vs Private Colleges

I was shifting from the School level to a collegiate one... my brother graduated from the most talked about college of this country and the college who owns the Star Performer of all the companies who hires engineer, that is Indian Institute of Technology, so disbelieving him was as stupid an idea as me myself.

In IITs, ragging is as hazardous as malaria, once you messed it, you will be in deep shit for a long long time, my brother narrated me a dozen stories about ragging in IIT and I used to have the fear of ragging since school.
Keeping that in mind, I played it very safe since my first day, and as a result of that, i became a dumb, speechless, tongue-tied, incoherent junior who only looked down due to fear of seniors, but I forgot that its no IIT, it is just a mediocre engineering college and your seniors are no star performers or entrance crackers, they are seniors only because they have born a year before than you did, 
I obeyed all the shittiest rule made by my seniors, only after watching the patterns for 6 months in this college, I find out that how exactly I should frame myself in this institutions, actually saying frame is inappropriate, in private college, one should be natural and fearless, seniors hardly have guts or authority to create problems for you neither they are going to help you with your degree. 

Our juniors learned it very earlier and the super juniors came with that natural and fearless essence.

we were the last Ragged batch of my college, I guess I believe.

The Alchemist

Unlike Many starters, I dint go for a Chetan Bhagat book to start my novel reading. Instead my brother handed over to me this book called The Alchemist, and he gave me 10 days to finish it. I was in my IXth standard, and the funny thing about my reading of that book is that I read it twice and I could not understand the story of the book, well it was like I was not used to reading a story which carried more than 200 pages, I read it again and this time around, I was able to fetch the essence of the beautifully written book by Paulo Coelho, and the best thing of the book is its relativity, the story never went on to a different track and stayed on the parallel track that everything related with everyone and the projectile reached perfectly with the last paragraph of the book connected it with the first paragraph, where santiago sleeps in an abandoned church, and the guy in that last stanza tells about his dream which was about that abandoned church, thats the beauty of writing a novel.

The FACEBOOK movie...

Wait for "The Social Network"..... A movie based on the life of Mark Zuckerberg... now do you know who Mark Zuckerberg is... if not I tell you first, Mark Zuckerberg is the 26 year old man who is primarily responsible for the creation of FACEBOOK... A movie which already have released in USA and will release soon in India, is being rated 9.1 on IMDB [Internet Movie Data Base].

The Social Network was released on October 1, 2010, and stars Jesse Eisenberg as Zuckerberg. After Zuckerberg was told about the film, he responded, "I just wished that nobody made a movie of me while I was still alive." Also, after the film's script was leaked on the Internet and it was apparent that the film would not portray Zuckerberg in a wholly positive light, he stated that he wanted to establish himself as a "good guy".

Waiting for its release in India.... 1st day 1st show I promise....

"Dont miss the tagline...."

"You do not get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies...."
