college life @ nitp

There are two facets of college life which i have experienced here at nitp. when i compare my college life wid my school life my memories go for a walk down the lane. Scrolling past my memory nostalgia sweeps me off the feet. School life and College life, the fun, the differences, the lessons learnt always has sparked off a debate as to which of them is the most influential.

My school life was fun. No REAL pressure to perform, no projects to do. The only place where you do nothing and be happy. Except for the occasional quarterly, half-yearly and annual exams, exams sound greek and latin to me! School was the place which taught me the value of friendship and to love friends.
But college life is the real catalyst to an unending world of fun, mis-understandings, sharing and true friends stick together, they get together. College life and hostel fun teaches you a world of good characters, to help, to adjust and to get to know many people truely. So School life is good. But College life is Better.

This is how i go about my college life at first thought. but when i had a deeper brood over it i realised i never had a college life. I have right now given my 6th sem exams and after a year i would complete my btech degree. But there is really nothing much which i can carry from this college apart from that btech degree. In name of college life we are living in a real hell surrounded with demons. Three fourth of college students don’t get hostels n those one fourth left are not fortunate either. In name of hostels its just a room made of bricks with hell lot of problems out there. The college ends before it starts. To be honest there is no such boundary where we could say that this belongs to nitp students. Its simply open to ALL!

The problem doesn’t end here only. In name of education we are cheated only. Cheated in names of exams viva labs project etc. Nothing is relevant in this college.everything is done for the sake of doing only. We even don’t have qualified teachers and those who are there are only for crushing students.

“ I bet this is the only college of india where a teacher sets record by spoiling the life of maximum number of students”. And they say this bravely and openly and nobody could challenge them. And i even advise you to never do so because you will be in a greater problem thereafter.

Corruption is so widespread that it takes a full year to complete a lawn tennis court. And to add to our woes its not even completed till date. Every year we get a whole lot of promises which i don’t think is going to be realised over. There is no scope for creativity in this college. If you are a mediocre then you are lucky else you will suffocate every tick of the second. Don’t think that i am exaggerating they are worse than my words.

But unfortunately we cant do anything and just say this is ours fate, destiny or whatever you may call. But in the meanwhile we lost our college life,ours share of fun and many things else.

Being an optimist i still feel that these doomsday would end some day and our coming generation would see the PHOENIX!!@@

  2. Dear Avinash,
    I am an alumni of nitp 2k3 batch i.e.2007 batch pass-out. We as individuals do undergo different sort of experiences in our lives. They leave a bad taste in our mouths. But may be down the years, your personal experiences could be such that you might remember these days as one of the, if not the best days of your lives. I underwent a similar transformation, I can say that by my personal experience. So, an individual like you, who writes so well, should use a forum like internet to bring a positive change in the institute rather than criticizing it as it won't do any good but can potentially cause a lot of harm to our Alma-mater. Please exercise some restraint. Good luck.

  4. I think sir is would be surprised to know I never had a real schooling in my 9th and 10th standards....these are our personal fates n infact an experience in themselves 4m which u can learn a lot..
    I jus want to say that we can be harbingers to positive changes in our college. And every transformation is sure not to be devoid of hardships n challenges!

  5. first of all thnx sir for giving ur valuable comment on my blog.i dint have any intentions to harm our alma-matter.actually i was in tht mind set at tht moment of time.but i agree wid u tht as days are passing my attachment wid this college is increasing manifold.i hope some day i could do something great for my alma-matter.

    once again thank you sir!

  6. Hi Avinash,

    I am Anurag, 2k4 Batch. To be frank, i can see frustration and anger in your words but we should understand that the world is not always a bed of roses. Yes, there are problems in our college, but that's not all. There are brighter sides also. Like you said, you will come out with a degree only, but dear, just get out of college premise, and observe yourself that how much benefecial the NIT tag is to your career.

    Also, you mentioned about professors, i believe, we have a very good core team which includes gem like Mr B.K. Sharma. So just be patient, and don't jump to conclusions and spoil the name of college.

  7. @anurag sir!
    sir i never wanna harm my alma matter but the situation has got very worse here....there is a strike going these days in our college because mr A.K. Das has failed 21 students of mech branch 2k7....still admin is dumb as usual...rather they are even threatening the students....there are many more grave problems that cant be shared over here....what those 21 guys would do with that damn degree when they dont get a placement from the college....they wont be getting placement because they wont be having that paper in 7th wait till 8th sem result would surely ruin their placement....for record some of them are even in top 20 students of their class....

    sir its not about anger bt its a fact that this college sucks!

  8. that seems truely wiered. The same situation occured for our batch(in 8th sem) also, when one of the professor from ECE dept. was about to fail almost whole batch. But we came out of the tricky situation by negotiations. I hope the present crises will also pass.

    Good luck!!

  9. no sir des days its not a admin of your time....they dont listen 2 students anymore....they say if u think u have a genuine issue then go to the court and get d disgusting it is...........
