First of all many thanks to a friend who took the pains to mail me that she happened to read my blog and that I should keep writing. They say ‘a friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words’. Thanks to her that I finally felt like posting this one. So many things have happened in the past 2 months that I guess it took some time for me to come to terms with myself. Here’s a quick list:

  1. I finished my engineering studies with static colors :). So now I can claim that I am an Engineer. Shaizeen Aga, BTech IT (COEP) happens to be my new designation :).
  2. We, which means (Akki, Swati and me) won Imagine Cup Parallel Computing Award. I really want to thank some people without whom this achievement would not have been possible.-Niks: For suggesting to me that I participate ( I had better mention Shira’s name here for inviting us to her birthday party and coming late herself šŸ™‚ which gave Niks and me, the time to start chatting). He not only suggested that I participate but also wholeheartedly believed that I would win :). Niks, do let me know how you developed this foresight:).

    -Sudhir: For answering all my silly doubts with his immense patience and helping out.

    -Jinson and Kumbhar Sir: For helping us arrange a quad core machine for getting our test results.

    -And last but not the least Swati, for having a dual core machine, almost killing it for getting the results we got and for converting herself into a anthropomorphic debugger for almost over a month to make our code run with atmost precision and Akki for being at a ‘missed call’ distance from me for last four years andĀ  bearing up with PRETCT who almost used to throw up (or faint) when fed with our code and large datasets.

  3. I had my first press conference for winning the Imagine Cup which was arranged by our college. Here’s a short list of variousĀ  newspapers covering this:

    Times of India

  4. I moved out of Pune and I am back at home now. I definitely miss the city a lot… esp Smokin Joes, Corn Club, Horn Ok Please, Krishna Juice Center, ABC, J-Block and most of all C-O-E-P… The last four years have been some of the best years of my life and they wouldn’t have been so had it not been for all my beloved friends who made it so for me. I miss you all a lot… šŸ˜¦

Life at home is good.. Rain gods are pouring their hearts out and it rains cats and dogs out here… I have never been a devoutĀ  Sun FanĀ  nor a Rain Fan , but I surely amĀ  missingĀ  Sun a lot šŸ˜¦ . If any you guys happen to see him please let him know I am heart-broken and that he should try striking some sort of pact with Rain and show up atleast for a few hours everyday. I am waiting for the hegemony of Rain god to end and for my mornings to be welcomed by the dulcet sounds of birds instead of the constant clamor of incessant rains.
