Well! There are always things that happen in one’s life that seem to be of zilch value but the butterfly effect of them is catastrophic(oh no! why the f*** is this theory coming to my head so many times)
The Ramaiah and Megastudy circle connection :
There are these two big time IIT-entrance coaching institutes in Hyderabad which grind the students big time, sterilise them,de-corrupt them,solder them, push them, enlighten them, preach them , teach them et al and manage to get a lot of them into the IITs.
Okay so where do I come in ? I told my dad before the Ramaiah entrance (yeah!an entrance for that too) “If i dont get into this I will forget the IIT dream” Obviously I didnt get in 😦 Then dad said , “Hey!You might get into Megatudy circle!” I was quite optimistic about that one.Sure enough , get record-breaking , path-breaking , bheja-breaking scores in maths n chemistry but screwed up in physics and those authority guys had to put sectional cut-offs! Blast! So then , I land up in Gowtham college,S.R.Nagar in IIT coaching batch (dad persuading me, my interest in IIT then= -ve infinity)
The IIT to EAMCET to IIIT ian landing :
Note Point : The person I am talking about has been my mentor and guide who is directly & indirectly responsible for my decent ranks in EAMCET & AIEEE.The following incident is highlighted only in good jest. 😀
Five years ago , in my +1/Intermediate 1st year , there was this mathematics lecturer Mr.V.V.S.S.Srinivas (I think there’s one more S in the name,but I dont remember) who told me face-on ,
“Em panikosthavu ra nuvvu IIT ki , nee bonda paniki vasthaavu ra , ekku cheyyaku class lo , BURRA PAGILIPODDI ..” (Translation : You are not fit for IIT , dont do your monkey antics in IIT coaching class , otherwise your brain will break … ) So the next day, I shifted to EAMCET-coaching class citing the reason in rhyme-model
I am running away in pain
And with all possible disdain
Scared that he will break my brain
If he saw me again! 😦
So i prepared for EAMCET what with ceremonoiusly cramming all sorts of formulae,short-cut formulae corresponding to original formulae,short-cut methods to remember the short-cut formulae to the original formulae,short-cuts to remember the short-cuts to the …oh God! I hope you got it!?!?!? That actually proved very useful for the AIEEE paper in 2K3 where speed was an effective criterion. I didnt knowwhat IIIT was until 2 days before I decided to join it 🙂
Yeah! Btw I didnt even write IIT screening . At least saved myself the humiliation of putting a mongoose face before certain characters who think that writing IIT screening is a matter of prestige !
Network(s) Delay :
Dropped a flexi-core course called Communication Networks last year because I was scared of probability.So had to compulsarily do it this sem (being my final sem)Now I am facing the music,would surely have had a better grade had I not dropped it last year.If I get any grade better than B- in this course , Chandramouli and IV will give an on-stage classical dance performance !! 😛
According to the grape-vine ,the course was made “core ” from “flexi-core” because I was the only student who dared to do such a thing as drop it.So guess the management didn’t want gullible future generations of IIITian-ECE to follow the example of the pioneer !

“Burra pagilipoddi ….” (your brains’s gonna break)
“Nee bonda kooda paniki raadu ..” (even your hole won’t be any use )
“Bonda Sacchinoda … ” ( hole-dead fellow .. )
