    Really well depicted and so true!!
    I oscillated between being the kewldude and the guruj in most cases, and surely takes me back to my engineering days.

    Great work, Pradyut!

      Thankesh! πŸ™‚

      But I must let you know, that you can never be a kewldude AND the Guruji at the same time. We know who you are πŸ˜›

    AWESOME read!
    slick screenplay and 100% true! πŸ˜›
    I was the cooldude! πŸ˜›

    Dude! Seriously, I can’t stop laughing! And the ‘anti-social elements’ part, it happens all the time. AWESOME!

    • February 6, 2011 1:23 pm

      Dude, trust me. I ruined many a vacations after getting to know that I screwed an exam AFTER getting out of the exam hall.

    Shaabash Pradyut! πŸ™‚ I enjoyed reading it. Identify completely with the characters. You’ve pwned the content and editing. [And there’s no such thing as too-much-blog-plug on twitter]

    • February 6, 2011 7:57 pm

      Thanks Pushkar! I was the ‘kewldude’ and the ‘rockdude’ while at college. Owe my Engineering degree to my ‘Guruji’. πŸ˜€

  9. February 6, 2011 7:41 pm

    It was “hey this is exactly what happens” and a feeling of “damn, we were so stupid” till I came to important tips #1. Epic ROFL there!

    • February 6, 2011 7:59 pm

      Thanks Manan!

      Trust me, it still works. There is no such thing as confusing the examiner with random fundaes πŸ˜€

      • February 6, 2011 8:21 pm

        have always avoided the anti-social elements. In fact treated them like one! And you brought some good memories of hot invigilator and hot classmate πŸ˜› Bang on target.

    • February 6, 2011 8:57 pm

      Haha. Me too πŸ˜‰
      Such distractions proved to be very costly in such tense situations. πŸ˜€

    Hilarious AND nostalgic! Could put names to every character!

    Next, something on cheating/excuses after getting caught or something like that maybe?

    Great work!

    • February 6, 2011 8:58 pm

      Thanks Shrey!

      Will try and dedicate another post to the ‘art of cheating/excuses’ in a future post! πŸ˜‰

    Great work, I say.

    • February 7, 2011 3:05 pm

      “Thankesh” Shagun πŸ˜›

      I realised that a bit later, should have titled it as ‘An Indian Student’s Approach’. What is there. Future posts with such themes shall be named thusly.

    Hahahaha. Hilarious! Leaving aside the “engineer” part, I can totally relate to it. I love the Gtalk chat windows.

    I am usually too nervous to spot hot guys in the hall. And discussing question papers is pointless. Idiots only.

    Superb stuff. Very creative. Keep it up πŸ™‚

    • February 7, 2011 3:35 pm

      Thanks Aishwarya! πŸ˜€

      As is the case with most topper types, I see why you find discussing the question paper pointless πŸ˜›

    I am not going to mix my words and will talk business straight away. this is not a blog,it is an exemplary piece of art, which is absolutely time far the king of your creations till date.
    I hope the creative spark in you, sparks up some more amazing work.

    you aced in capturing the mood,feel and have made me relive the exam fever in a very jolly brief you gave me a sugar coated time capsule.

    cheers pradyut!

    I’m glad I found your blog. Awesome Post! and looks like you have put in quite an effort too.

    PS: including a sexy pic of Cobie wouldn’t hurt :D.

    • February 11, 2011 2:55 am

      Haha, Thank you! πŸ™‚
      Will put up Cobie’s pictures in future posts to lure more people towards the blog πŸ˜‰

  27. February 10, 2011 10:17 pm

    Perfectly documented account of every engineering student in India, I can say from my own experience. You forgot to give credit to one most important element responsible for getting passing marks in exams- The Xerox/Photocopy Machine. Without it, what would we do!

    • February 11, 2011 2:58 am

      I know. Totally forgot about it. Maybe in a future post giving more elaborate tips :p

  28. February 17, 2011 10:59 am

    Hey, first time here πŸ™‚ Hilarious post!!

    #NowFollowing on Twitter πŸ˜›
    Also, pssstttt.. how did you come up with the brilliant visuals? Photoshopped?

    • February 17, 2011 12:22 pm

      Thank You! πŸ™‚

      Yes, Photoshop has been used. Followed the age-old mantra of using Style to camouflage the lack of Substance :p
