The LAB song

Looney had all the loot,
But he had a bruised foot.

Stars in the sky are so lame,
They play this pretence game;
Trying to achieve that cheap fame.

This is a world of tit for tat,
Rat is now not afraid of cat.
This world is no longer dull,
All agreements are void and null!

Something is buzzing over me,
Its my head and its demanding a fee.
One day for all locks there'll be only one key,
You'll all wear slaves ,its my curse -Master I have to be.

Yesterday I was reading a book,
She gave me this sexual look;
I said - you are not real, thats your plight,
She said- for my rights I shall fight.

Alcohol asked me how do you do?
I am fine sir, THANK you.

I am so tired of sleeping, now I'll sleep,
When I am famous, you'll say my lyrics are so deep.

Bring it on!!

If anybody's seen Full Metal Jacket they'll understand what getting hardened is..only difference is that they got devoid of all the compassion and pity and we(student of iit kharagpur electrical department) got devoid of all the fear and shame.

At the risk of being stripped of my BTech Degree (yes they can actually do that till 5 years of my passing!!!!) here I present the tales from the most horrifying department of kgp.

These are actual conversations that took place( some of them with me also):
But I am writing all in first person because its easier to do so.

Just the 2nd day after my joining (I am a cute ,innocent guy who is very excited at being in a good engineering college).Gone are those kiddish school days when you had to think a lot about the aesthetics of your lab files...The intelligent Prof. here must be paying attention on the funda and not all the embellishments. So I draw the first circuit diagram without a scale and with a pen..but it looked pretty neat.Yup it did.

Me(brimming with confidence): Sir, here is my circuit diagram
Prof: What were you thinking when you drew this thing. You are no more in a school where you could get away with whatever you wanted.I won't read this nonsense.
.....He throws my report as far as he can and says " follow the trajectory."

Just the 4th day after my joining. I am still a cute and innocent guy.There is a routine viva after the experiment.

Prof: some question
Me: Wrong answer
Prof:Tell me one thing. Do you own any farm in your village?
Me: No sir.
Prof: Oh no, then what will you do when we throw you out of this institute!!

Still a cute and innocent guy.

Prof: Who was sitting infront of you in JEE( joint entrance examination).You are such an idiot.There is no way you could get here without cheating. Even a 9th class student would have a better IQ than yours.

Now this one is a classic. And mind you I am NOT making anything up.
A group( 5 guys and a girl) couldn't complete their experiment in the stipulated time.

Prof.: What were you doing for the last 3 hours??? Scratching your balls?..( after a brief pause)..or whatever the case maybe!!!!!

Prof.: I see a very bleak future for you. Lets suppose that you do complete your degree in 4 years. With your kind of CGPA you wont get any job, ditto for schols in any US univ. On the basis of my experience with you i can surely say that you won't be able to clear CAT or UPSC or any other exam.So what will you do??

There are innumerable other incidents...there have been cases when my viva-partner has chewed the pen in nervousness( which he borrowed from the prof. taking our viva)...or even reached the threshold of tears ( in case of girls threshold was quite often crossed)..

But all this was in 1st year and probably 2nd year. After that we were a complete new breed of "hardened" men.

So, bring it on!

Shine on, you crazy diamond

Come on you raver, you seer of visions, come on you painter,
you piper, you prisoner, and shine!

Bow down infront of the Gods!

What a final...if not in terms of quality, definitely in terms of drama.
And yes Italy deserved it.
First let me tell you one thing if any player other than Cannavaro wins Golden Ball it would be absolutely shocking and insane.
Probably Pirlo and Buffon would come close. Zidane blew his chances ( I really feel sorry for him .He definitely was one of the best players ever. When he was in his prime form no other player could match even half of his class).
Ok, Italy weren't as positive as they were in previous matches but still they were gritty and resolute.
In 2nd half Italians totally lost their concentration .They were giving wrong passes all over the pitch and lost possession very easily.But one thing which was brilliant as always was defence. The only player who could have stopped Zidane and Henry was Cannavaro.France looked pretty good in latter half of the game and made some good moves but all that translated into only one descent shot on goal...Zidane's fiery header which was brillianlty saved by the best goalkeeper in the world.Now if you look at Italy , Toni hit the post with his header on an awesome corner kick from Pirlo( what a player he is!). And then the goal which was disallowed due to an offside decision( how close was it! especially when Toni himself didn't look offside).
Although Toni was involved in both the goal scoring opportunities I would have loved Gilardino coming on later for him.
What makes this victory special for Italy is that half of their players are uncertain of their future.Guess the crisis and controversies brings out the best in Italians( same happened in 1982!).And wow!Italy won on penalties ...Finally.
And all this while Italy was playing without Alessandro Nesta( He was out of knockout stage due to injury).He is one of my favourite players and is largely considered to be the best defender in the world!!. Italy without Nesta is like France without Henry.And could you believe it even without Nesta Italian defense was so damn scary. Materazzi did play his part quite well.
Lippi was as tactical and as intelligent as any coach can get.
And finally i would say it again ...where is Totti...my fav. midfield player??? Hopefully he'll come back when he is fully fit.

world cup so far

that Spain is still a much much better team than France and Argentina is still a much much better team than Germany and that everyone cheats and everyone dives so no need to be a bloody hypocrite Henry and that you might have forgotten what you said at the end of Champions league final but I haven't and that England is damn lucky to have played Ecuador and playing depleted Portugal and I hope England loses for the betterment of football coz Eriksson your strategy sucks and that Ivory Coast was very unlucky to have gone out in first round and that Netherlands was always overrated and that Pekerman just why did you become defensive and that you can seriously enjoy watching Italy's awesome defense and that I miss amazing Totti which he was before injury and that so many yellow cards are ruining the world cup and that Spain's 4th goal against Ukraine and Argentina's second goal against S & M were stunning and that the funniest sight was Portugal and Netherland players sitting together and chatting after being red carded and that Brazil don't look unbeatable and that I have lost all bets and World cup is over for me and I don't care who wins but I'll be an inch happier if Italy it is.
