Symptoms of Graduation

You know you have graduated from BPGC when:

– 10:30 pm is just another passing hour.
– You have smelt fresh outside air beyond 11:30 pm.
– You manage to speak complete sentences without using even one swear word.
– Monginis and Nescafe do not form a part of your daily diet.
– Maggi or paneer puffs are not the only other dinner alternatives.
– Choices go beyond old monk and IB.
– You actually contemplate going to bed by 11:00pm.
– Group discussions are more than CS Strategies.
– You have stopped having dreams about snipers, guns, maps, clans and tourneys.
– You own more footwear than that rugged floater and the all-purpose bathroom slippers.
– You finally have clean and ironed trousers and shirts in your wardrobe.
– Good internet speeds have finally become normal and not a cause for celebration.
– You logged into your orkut account after 2 years.
– You have begun responding to your real name again.
– You don’t complain of lack of ‘birds’ to ‘watch’.
– (For girls only) You finally meet guys who have real conversations with you.
– (For both girls and boys) Your prospective of getting a ‘real’ date has improved.
– You bathe regularly.
– You dont need to eat Chole Bhature every sunday morning.
– You actually find cheaper modes of transport and dont have to shell out 600 bucks for a single outing.
– Good food is no longer a rarity.
– You actually use your cell phone economically and have balance in it most of the time.
– You can finally search for ‘ANALog devices’, get songs of the band called ‘ORGY’ and even see pictures of ‘MiddleSEX county’ on google.
– Every website can be opened.
– AVK and notices are not a reality, only a faint hilarious memory.

Welcome to life beyond BPGC.

    I am happy to be out (Sad part is u just can’t have that much fun n u miss frends, but than u can manage the later by being in touch)

    But when u have spent so much time at some place, obviously ul feel nostalgic abt it.

  5. Fckin, I read d post later & commented before it. 😦

    I still do a lot of the things mentioned in the list 😦

    You manage to speak complete sentences without using even one swear word. (Cant do dat)
    – Monginis and Nescafe do not form a part of your daily diet. (Dominos & Mcdnls Do)
    – Maggi or paneer puffs are not the only other dinner alternatives.
    (Maggi is good, i still eat)
    – Choices go beyond old monk and IB. (Now its Fosters or Kingfisher)
    You own more footwear than that rugged floater and the all-purpose bathroom slippers. (Fckin still wearin that same old since an year)
    – You finally have clean and ironed trousers and shirts in your wardrobe.( Nahh, no ironing still πŸ™‚ )
    Your prospective of getting a β€˜real’ date has improved.
    (Thats LOL, BITSians cant improve at that)
    You bathe regularly. (Hehehe πŸ™‚ )
    You actually use your cell phone economically and have balance in it most of the time. (If u hv a gf, shes jus like a termite on ur balance)

    @nita nice post

  8. @boon: Lets hope that non-existent becomes existent in the near future.
    @Prachi:Yoyo,I’m sure you social life will be back on track in a few weeks time after the initial storm.

    @ Apoorv: Senti senti senti.

    @ Oink: \m/

    @ Mandar:Thank you πŸ™‚

    @Choos: Of course you can still do all what you said, but it won’t be the same.And your girl-friend comment is highly dangerous (for you ofcourse -esp the termite thing) And speaking of which leeches were a better metaphor! πŸ˜€

    @Ved: Thank you! Enjoy Bangalore! Its fun.

    @Gill: Yoyoyo! TY!

  9. Hey.. I recently visited Goa and saw BITS…and you were the only person whom I could relate it with or rather the Blog πŸ™‚ … I did read some posts on your Blog about the Campus and it did look beautiful from outside… I wondered how you guys managed to Study there???

    Anyways, Have a fun-filled ‘Graduated’ life… Ciao

  10. Its a kindda syndrome.. everyone seems to be blogging abt bpgc.
    Freedom part not true for me man.. Home = Rules aaargh !!!
    neway awesome post FOL . (not real name πŸ˜› ) Fly away to GAtech now πŸ™‚
    I still cant get used to not having wide open spaces around me. I feel like im sitting in a deadly maze of cubicles
    Dilbert makes a lot more sense when you start working , esp as a consultant

  11. Dilbert always made sense. Lol, I can imagine you being in the same physical situation also. The transition takes a while getting used to, especially the sitting in one place part. But anyway BPGC \m/ and dilbert \m/

  12. Eh!

    Okay, I read this long time after it was posted, and well, I have reason to be sorta nostalgic (PS2, with most of my friends on campus this sem :|)

    And I’m to read up lotsa long and technical and basically boring papers, so here I am, opining upon your post (:P)

    “- You don’t complain of lack of β€˜birds’ to β€˜watch’.” So totally true.

    “- Monginis and Nescafe do not form a part of your daily diet.” *sneef* 😦

    “- You actually use your cell phone economically and have balance in it most of the time.” nope, STD calls *kill* ur balance 😐

    Plus, no DC++!!!!!!! No more blink-and-you-miss-it download process. No adminchat, no kickin-powers. *sneef* 😦 (I once kicked Adil Mistry sir, no wait I kicked him like thrice, the day they were planning his farewell.)

    Bah. Got all senti and weird when people put up status messages like “xx hours to go back to campus” and then “registration finally done” etc etc etc. *Weird*

    Anyway, hope you have a whale of time in the US of A. Hope to see more stuff here! πŸ˜€
