True facts of all engineering colleges...

Jus came across a list of interesting things which are common to all engineering colleges.... thought I'd compare it with mine :)

The 4-year holiday called engineering....

-> The lecturers don't teach or even if they start, students won't allow :)
The students dont study. The only guy who benefits is the one who owns the dhaba or small petty shops next to the college.
I can't forget the days when we used to go to the shops near our college and have hot bajjis... :)

-> Rules are made to be broken.
I remember the times we went for enquiries, after getting caught doing some mischievous things and breaking the college rules.. :(

-> Promises are made to be broken.
Oh.... no need to explain this, right? :)

-> Deadlines are made to be extended...ALWAYS!
Especially for the assignments... :D

-> Guys always think the chics in the college next lane are more beautiful.
How true!!! no explanations necessary :))

-> The lab assistants are the most respected people.
Especially during the lab exams.... maska laganeka hai, har waqt.. kaam ki baat haina.... ;)

-> The watchmen are the people most bribed.
Oh, most of the nights when we return late to the hostels, we used to beg our watchman to open the gates... and atlast we befriended him by doing some favors... :)

-> The HOD is the person most respected(heights of sycophancy here).
I don't want to talk abt my HOD... not interested... :(

-> The principal is the person most abused and insulted (behind the back).

-> Dropping subjects is 'cool'.
arre yaar.. drop the idea of dropping subjects plz....

-> There is always a lecturer in the college who cant speak proper 'english'.
yesssss...

-> Night-out is the second most important tool to ace the exams. (u might ask whats the first one???)
Oh yaaa, we used to sit and study only during the univ exams... the whole night...

-> The most important tool... the bhramastra.. is the 'chit' in which the
words can be understood only by the person who wrote them (in most of the
cases) heheeeeeeee.......

-> The hostelers always raid the tiffin boxes of the days scholars and everything will be over before the lunch break...
Ahmm.... being a days scholar for the first three years and a hosteler for the last year, I've been in both the taking and receiving ends.... :D

-> The freshers are the most sought after... be it in the canteen, the 'free' periods or for completing the records, assignments.
Being a days scholar for the first 3 yrs, I escaped most of this... cos only in hostels, these things can be seen extensively... :))
But, my friends used to narrate me all those that they had to go thro' in the hostels...

-> The second-years are the ones with the 'I am the don-of-the-college' feeling.
Hmm, right said... and the ones involved in targetting the freshers, mostly to pay back all those they had to go thro' as a fresher.

-> The third years are the ones with the 'so-many-backlogs' feeling and the poor souls get down to studying after bossing around in the college for so
long.... but the fun still continues....

-> The fourth years have no connection with the college whatsoever... with no interest in ragging, pulling each other`s legs, the bday parties, the bday bums et al which they enjoyed so much till now. All they want is a good placement and a '1st-class' tag attached to their memo.
I don't remember even a single day in my final year where I attended one full day of classes... we used to come late to the class, go to the canteen, raid our staffs tiffin boxes, go out in the pretext of doing projects... and ofcourse, preparation of aptitudes and all those Shakuntala Devi puzzles... for the placements...
My god, can't foget all those.. :(

-> The first three years are spent in cursing the college, the people there, the system et al. But towards the end of the fourth year, people tend to feel nostalgic
abt the pure unadulterated fun they have had for 4 years. Now the very
system they disliked, the very canteen they cursed, the time that they spent
there, the bday bums they suffered..all these seem like heaven to them....
Oh, this is absolutely true.... We felt all these when we conducted our National level symposium during our final year... After we completed that successfully, we had the whole night dancing in the auditorium... and that was the time we started feeling that nostalgiaaaa...

Our farewell was sooo good and we didn't feel like leaving the college even after late night.... we jus kept on talking... talking... all the time as if we didn't get any time to talk till now..
Oh.. I miss my college life very much... :((

Any other things u can think of???
