THINGS I HATE ABOUT MY COLLEGE
Monday, March 26, 2007
Each time I get a tag, I keep saying to myself "No more tags". But since famous bloggers like Mathematician come up with interesting topics for tags, I'm tempted to take it.

This time it's "Ten things I hate about my college". Here goes:

1) The ban on cellphones which we proudly violate (at our own risk). I hate it more when I hear reports about how five boys were caught by the VC at the gate, carrying cellphones, at 11:30 in the night.

2) The grey TATA Safari and a Rewa patrol vehicle that do "rounds" inside the campus. Worst is when some arbitrary students are caught and questioned for possessing cellphone.

3) The unergonomic timetable which has been designed in such a way all subjects are handled in two-hour sessions.I call it unergonomic as it puts students to sleep within 10 mins of start of the class

4) The professors who epitomise punctuality by being just in time for their respective classes thereby ensuring that two-hour classes last exactly or greater than 120 minutes.

5) The rules, one of which says "Two wheelers are not allowed inside the campus". It's not the rule that irks me but the dumb estate officer who has made it a point to seal all prospective entry points and paths (even shrubbed pathways) with thorny branches.

6) The disadvantage back-benchers are always at-- giving in to the professors' lullabies no matter how hard they try to stay awake by just scribbling something in their notepads.

7) The associate warden of the hostels who repeatedly issues warnings, after some trivial incident that involves the theft of "vital" items like ball point pens, to day scholars about entering hostel blocks. And we flout them at our own risk

8) The ground whose cricket pitches are never empty thanks to TNCA league matches

9) The staff parking lot which is meant for parking of staff members' vehicles.Unfortunately it remains mostly empty since most staff members come to college by bus.

10) The canteen--it's not the food that I hate but the queues at the cash counter.

I tag everyone who reads this post (except Mathematician and Chaos Master who've already taken it)

    ramya,
    You're right,we may be on the same plane but the intensity with which we're affected varies.

    fun2fun,
    ask me,will tell you more.

    ram,
    The rounds happen mostly in the evenings after 4:30.And the Tata Safari is the VC's car.

    And you're totally mistaken about the sincere part.What makes you say(or rather who told you)I'm a sincere fellow?
