3 IDIOTS - A Must Watch

Finally after many weeks of long wait, i watched 3 idiots the day after our results are out.I should thank my best buddy vikas for taking the tickets and inviting me for the movie.I almost rushed from home when he said that he had 2 tickets with him.And yeah, eventually i came to know the
reason why the tag line "ALL IZZ WELL" had become so popular. No doubt the movie was amazing. This enlightens me the reason why Aamir takes time while he chooses the script for his
        There is one point which is worth mentioning in the movie. The movie is all about a sound principle which is followed by Rancho alias Aamir "Try to excel in that field for which you have a passion,and one day u will succeed." I liked the "DEMO" strategy Rancho used to help people understand things.Chatur's character was hilarious.He is known for by hearting the lessons.Where as Rancho was known for his conceptual understanding.He was awesome and looked so young.All i can say is this is one movie which is a must watch for all the young engineers.Go along the path where your dreams take you.Another movie which is worth mentioning when you speak about following your dreams is Wake up sid. It had a similar theme casted in a differnt way.

      You will feel good once you come out. You will feel great if you just flunked your exams. For now

My first failure in Engineering..

Every time when my semester results are out, i was one among all those distinction holders. I named it the D club where D stands for distinction.Recently i had written my 3-1 exams and yeah i worked like i never did before for these exams. Before 3-1, my preparation methodology was entirely different. I used to study each and every day , but the day before the exam im glued to my TV watching cricket matches.

However i took an oath not to watch cricket before exams and started reading well. It was the same priciple applied to perfection while i was taking my 3-1 exams.Everything went on well.For the first time when i finished my exams i was very confident and felt good about myself. I didnt feel like praying to GOD any more because i took it for granted that my result would be fair enough.

I was very cool and acted as if i screwed my exams and the same was displayed as a caption in various social networking sites and as a news feed on FB and Twitter.

Finally on 7th January,results were out and im shocked that i missed distinction by 4 marks,while one of my friends made it there.So there goes my percentage -- 69.5. How do u feel when u get so close and miss hitting the target? Unfortunately many of my class mates who were known for their academic excellence couldnt make it there as well. So i said to my self a very famous line "AALL IZZ WELL" and there goes my caption.

Important thing is that my marks were sound in all the subjects where my performance was not to the best of my abilities. But two subject score's were dissappointing. Yeah man this is what happens with JNTU.I finally felt that i should go for revaluation kind of thing. And i told the same to all my friends.

But when i downloaded a pdf from the net about the revaluation details,i felt that the following details were worth noting. Here they go:

Item Fee per subject Applicable to

Recounting - Rs.100/- All courses

Revaluation - Rs.500/- All UG courses except B.Tech.

Challenge valuation- Rs.10,000/- Only for B.Tech.

10000 bucks for challenge valuation?? I dont know whos proposal this is, but i felt this is really ridiculous.Definitely it brings a lot of profit for the university.All my dreams were shattered after looking at this. 10000 bucks for a paper is really insane. So i finally decided to go for recounting which seemed to be economical for me(lol).At the end of the day i felt like making a statement saying -- JNTU and its script valuation SUCKS big time.
