Doctor of philosophy handling Admin jobs

[LOTD* ]: The plus in having a professor to do an administrative job is that you are questioned less... He is always too busy to do that. :P

Today I was at the training and placement section of the insti. I found out today at the (at least (12-1)th) hour that my name is incorrectly printed and I cannot change it , unless academic section had made the updates. The staff handling registration for tnp was so thrilled at me (or us in general , the 11th hour-specialists ) for being so late. They at least Pointed me towards the information cell where the tnp incharge was sitting . This guy was as cool (and as silent :P) as ice.

I told him my situation .... that was 15 seconds.
He was listening while doing some work and kept mum for a while .... that was around 10 seconds.
At last he asked "Roll Number kya hai ?" ... yes right 2 seconds hardly
I answered ....
Next question, "Naam?" .... 1.5 second would be an exagggeration :P
Last.... "OK"

I thanked him on my way out. But I dont think he would remember me next time cause he never looked at my face. Throughout the scene, I was just a record in the database for which he only had the authentication. :D


P.S. LOTD* means Lesson Of The Day.

When earth played with the moon ...

August 16th - 17th I witnessed a Lunar eclipse for the first time [Thanks Nilesh]:

11.30pm: Started with the full moon and no stars in the sky...
12.30am: But the Earth took over its pride ...
2.30am: Stars felt so bright as it was in the happening...
2.40am: Stars realised their delight was momentary as the earth started turning away...
3.00 am: Don't know what every one in the sky felt now as I slept with while thinking in my bed. :P

Freedom, as in free speech not as in free beer.

Let's Pledge today that ...

one day I will melt the ice in those frozen eyes, and let the dreams be free ...

And all my life, "spread as I grow" like a tree...
