Ladkiyan na jaane kyun…

You’d think I would have discovered this in school. Our quiz club had one girl. Me. This didn’t really affect any of us, since we were used to each other. Except in the inter-school quizzes when people would discover that our team had (gasp!) a girl. An intelligent human being with, like, legs! In a skirt! My own teammates found ...

SPACE 2005

‘Aquatica’ was the theme at Space this year. And the vibe at the fest vaguely reminded me of Shark Tale.

Most of the engineering students also have their semester exams in May-June, hence until last year a lot of students could not appear for CET. But their happiness was short lived.
