Special Thanks to Er. Dipu Singh who is currently in his 4th year of engineering at NIT, Calicut.
Here’s are his sweet and bitter experiences @NIT Calicut.
Reputation and prestige creates the aura of awe and adventure at NIT CALICUT, which is also a life dreamt by millions. I was one of the few whose dream became a reality. I was assisted by many “sleepless nights” with whom I spent a lot of my time. The sole motivation in my case was a life full of fun and you know the obvious thing every guy craves for (a girlfriend of course :p). I was disappointed by the latter as it wasn’t in my hands but quite successful with the former.
# First Year
The first year of my engg. saw me in a serious struggle with studies and somehow I loved it in a way. The books never found me peeping into them. Result? I was in equilibrium with the forces ‘pass’ and ‘fail’ with former applying a little larger force than the latter.
# Second Year
Then began my second year.
There were many failed love stories which I don’t want to elaborate in depth :p .
Second year made me think about a lot of things. There were some big questions about life which were burning vociferously inside me and I started reading about a bunch of things. I also started travelling intensely, many a times alone; for which my friends started calling me mad. I became totally uninterested in taking classes which led to lots of bunking. The attendance restrictions were severe and I suffered attendance shortage in one of the subjects owing to which college administration did not allow me to take the exam. I had a backlog consequently. But that did not stop me from travelling. So, my second year passed mostly amidst travelling and exploring the diverse India.
# Third Year
In the beginning of third year I registered for the course (subject) I had a backlog in. I was running low in confidence this year. This was the poem I wrote in one of the classes of the repeating subject:
A intelligent being,
A thinking giant,
A pleasant smile,
Didn’t go the expected mile,
I went on sail,
Just to discover a stressful mail,
Why did I fail,
In this engineering scale,
Words will only mystify,
This mental tale,
Without the legs of “HAIL” !
This was my mental situation. I started working hard and scored well as compared to the previous years. Now I am in my fourth year of engineering and hoping for something good to happen.

With Great Love,

Life is easy…☺
