Woh college ke din... a small incident to share...

Yesterday night, I was talking to my friend about our college life.... recollecting all those wonderful days at college... We started discussing about our labs and exams... and how we used to store all the programs for the lab in our login hidden.... and how some got caught.... all those stories... :)

During one such incident, my friend was in a big state of bother and how he came out using his so-called *other* skills (not the technical skill) is what I'd like to share here...

It was Java programming lab university exam and we were usually given only those programs which we do in our class. But, for that exam, a couple of extra programs were added.
My friend got one which we never did in the lab.. It was a little tough... he tried to do it as much as possible. But, as it was getting late.... he thought he needed to do something else. So, he opened the Java installation folder.. and usually there are some demo programs in Java for reference...
He was checking those and got one program which was almost similar to his... so, as the person incharge of this lab came to check the output, he showed the screen output for the demo program... The guy was really impressed with the output and asked for the code... and he showed the code he wrote for the program, not the original one... :) So, the output was of some other program and the code he showed was his....

During viva, the lab-incharge told the external staff about how well he had done the program... and all praises he got for that effort.. My friend was all in smiles.. when he came out of the lab..... We all had completed our programs earlier, so we gathered around him and asked about how he managed to do it.... He told us the story and we all broke into a big laughter.... this story spread throughout the hostel... and he became the talk of the hostel :)

There are many such incidents when we'd have to use our presence of mind and do things smartly so that we get the job done and also not get caught :)
Lots of such funny incidents happened in our college life... May be I'd share some of those later...
When we think of all those, we miss our college life very much.... :(
