Height of Stupidity

8.00 pm. Soft tinkling of a bell.

Again and again. Tinkling very near to me.

I get goosebumps. Then I decide that it must be a cat in my room. I start searching for it in my room and the adjoining one. I even meow to get a response.

The tinkling still going on. I stare around my room to see what could be tinkling without the ceiling fan on!!

Best Commentator and Best Post

Until now we all have been receiving awards for our blogging styles and blog posts. Now there is an award for commentators (Shouldn’t it be commenters?

“whether is a “phew!” or pointing out mistakes, she always comments”

Thanks dear Apar and Vishesh.shapeimage_5

Vishesh tagged me to talk with colors. 🙄 And he really wanted me to do the tag!! Though I am a Gemini, I don’t have such a wild imagination needed to do the tag. Anyway I have tried my best with VIBGYOR. Starting the tag from the last one and my favorite color :-

Red :- why do you love me so much when people associate me with danger or anger?

Viva-voce Experiences and Anecdotes

Viva-voce is an essential and integral part of any professional curriculum. Its supposed to be just as scary as a theory examination and sometimes even more as its an oral examination. Though I had given viva voce at school level I don’t remember anything about it.  You can read Ishmeet’s experience of a school viva here. In a field like Engineering or Medical, practical knowledge is much more important than theory. Viva-voce tests just that.

I don’t know about all but in many private engineering colleges viva-voce serves as a source of entertainment and frustration for the external and the internal examiners respectively rather than an ordeal for the students . The increasing disregard in students for studying before practical exams and the decreasing sincerity and quality of students in engineering can be attributed to cropping up of engineering colleges like mushrooms and the trend of not failing anyone in viva in private engineering colleges.
