No this is not a rant. This is a solid, logical, scientific explanation. Heck, this should probably be better than that meagre, measly attempt I made at writing a scientfic research paper.
I can’t study. I’m not sure whether doctors have found a technical name for it or whether it’s a disease – but I’m sure a lot of people are afflicted by this. So, one day I sat down and thought about this affliction of mine and how to overcome it. And then it struck me …
I cannot overcome this. This was how I was meant to be.
No, not exactly
The key lies in Evolution. Evolution is the process of change in all forms of life over generations. Human beings are supposedly evolved from Chimpanzees.
In every engineering classroom, there are some doctors, some engineers, some animators, some sportsmen, some filmmakers, even some tattoists, but there are always some folks who-don’t-know-what-they’re-doing-there ( like me ). And for every such person in the class, there is always a single, super puli kutti.
- He is that rare species – who possesses that one extra gene – which can make him sit through any class without blinking a single eyelid once. [ However strong the sleep-inducing power of the person handling the class maybe ]
- He is that rare species – who writes notes covering every possible thing that our professor tells and writes things which even the professor forgot.

What with all the exams flying around the heat is simply accumulating in my mind. During those long hours spent upon figuring out the answer in the exam hall … my mind frantically worked out the following wyas 2 wirte a eaxm
- Bring the large, cumbersome, ugly idol that Mom worships often. Put it right next to you. Pray to it often. And also consider a small sacrifice like your neighbours eraser.
- Answer the really long questions like “Explain how a network is created and established” with a short story about your childhood, or an experience that you once had. And finally end the story with “I just thought I should tell you this so that you can evaluate me better”.

As much as I enjoyed their work culture and coffee, my one-week training at Motorola was as much a much-needed sabbatical as an refreshing and rejuvenating experience. Initially though I was a little bit worried not knowing what to expect from a ‘international student exchange program‘ which would ‘give you an exposure to the culture of Motorola in product development and technology innovation‘, I ended up loving every bit of the program .
The participants from our college i was me from our department (ECE) and Parameshwaran from the Comp Sci Dept. I was expecting around 30-50 students with lots of international students. So, after the initial hustle and bustle for finding our room – which was really luxurious ( Though, later I got to know that hadn’t it been for the recession it would have been a Taj ).
I wrote this poem when I was doing my tenth standard (Ah … those wonderful days ) I came across it today and decided to rewrite it. Here’s the result …
Never did an hour pass, so boring
Than the class in which I was sitting.
the birds teasing, so free and happy,
And here I was lulling like a puppy.
They were discussing about probability
My mind protested in a silent fury;
Who cares why null hypothesis was rejected,
All I saw was the single hand ticking away.
Oh ! How I would love to fly from this mess,
Join the birds up above with heavenly grace,
Along with monkeys and dogs in blissful silence;
Pity! For then I would never then pass
On September 23, 2009 we had a nobel laureate visit our college campus. It was the Honeywell Nobel Initiative to put students like us in touch with eminent nobel laureates. It was perhaps once in a lifetime opportunity ( at least as far as my life has been so far ). I actually had a chance to meet one nobel laureate.
In my case, it was Prof.Eric.A. Cornell ( Professor for no apparent reason other than he was so much of what I dreamed professors would be like He is in fact a Research scientist at NIST ).
