February started with a trip to Pune to celebrate my first wedding anniversary with D. Had thought of posting on that day i.e. 4th Feb but was too busy spending time in the real world :) I made a video on our first wedding anniversary celebration for my readers :) Didn’t have time to associate an audio with it.
I, my head of department and my colleagues S and M were sitting at HoD’s room having a general chat when the topic diverted to marriage and wives.
HoD :- That day I was having some problem with my mobile. My wife solved the problem whereas I could not!! I didn’t think she can even use a mobile. You know one is lucky to have a simple wife.
M :- Oh yes sir! And in this matter I can say I am a very lucky man.
HoD :- What about you, S? When are you getting married?
S :- Parents are searching for a girl, sir.
Incident 1. Location : College
Male Colleague : I have to go home but I haven’t brought my vehicle today. Can you take me with you as your home is on that route?
Me: Sure. Come.
Male Colleague : I will drive. You sit behind.
Me : *gets off the vehicle*
Actually this is a part of my Summer Vacation series but as it needed a special mention I didn’t title the post as Part 2.
7th June 2009 :- Arrived in Pune and after a lot of hotel search, checked into one. It had wonderful surroundings..peaceful and green. And the hotel rooms were good too.
A professor in my college had been in a terrible car accident last year and his wife had died on the spot. He has a 10 year old son and a 14 year old daughter. Few days back I came to know that he had remarried after six months. I exclaimed “In just six months??” My colleague who gave the news justified that sir by saying “He has two small kids,madam”. I thought to myself “then he should have got a nanny, not a wife!!”
Being the faculty in charge of EETA, I’d organised Jhoom – 2008 along with students. Then the students wanted to conduct the yearly branch function of Electrical and Electronics department before the half year session ended. Last year I’d suggested the name Spark 2007 for the function. This year the students came up with Resonanzzz 2008. So I along with my colleagues and students organized the function on 4th Oct 2008. The function consisted of songs, dances (solo and group), drama, some interactive games, dandiya in open space and dinner for around 400 people. Our Head of Department had insisted on having some programs from the faculty side. So for the first time in history of our college, faculty participated in a branch function and showed their talents.
