Lessons Learnt in MCE,Hassan

Tears, idle tears, I know not what they mean,
Tears from the depth of some divine despair,
Rise in the heart, and gather to the eyes,
In looking on the happy Autumn-fields,
And thinking of the days that are no more. {Alfred Lord Tennyson}
I have finally completed my 4 years of engineering at MCE, Hassan. Here is a list of few of many things learnt in MCE & Hassan. You can call it funny, satirical, ’overacting’,unnecessary…. but it is my way of looking at things.

You will be nearer to heaven through football than through the study of Gita. {Football at 4.30 with chandu, Kishan, KP, KC, Jagga, Deepak, SK}

*Taking advantage of junior lecturers is not a crime. It’s just a way of helping them to become the best of all teachers. {3rd Semester}

*Any movie can be fun watching with friends. The language, genre, theater and place doesn't matter.{Movies at my room, Chandu’s room & various theaters in Hassan }

*The most important book and the one which is read maximum number of times in any semester is the ‘Syllabus copy’.

*The so called ‘Bike Trips’ are nothing but virtual photo shoots. {Munjrabad, Sakleshpur,Ramdevrakatte trips}

*Playing games in bare foot can be seriously dangerous,especially football. {Incident at MCF grounds which led to 7stitches…Thanks for all the care taken-Chandu, KP}

*In an Autonomous system, the difficulty of a subject depends on the teacher who handles it.

*The most enjoyable part of any trip is its travel. {Madikere and Kerala trips}

*Laptops and Desktop computers are strictly meant to play games, watch movies and listen to songs.

*Hassan is not a city…it’s just a big village. {Courtesy: KC}

*Nothing is permanent. {Love for the gadgets, celebrity, song, movie….Transition from orkut to Facebook and…}

*Women are unfit to rule because leadership doesn’t always rely only on Honesty. {Elaboration is unnecessary. And sorry for the generalisation}

*You feel the warmth of your juniors and seniors for 2 days in a year.{Fresher’s party and farewell}

*Even kannada language can be offensive, vulgar and cheap. {Slangs used in Hassan. Beep…beep…beep}

*We are all sore losers- cannot handle few losses.{BR elections}

*For every summit you scale another one is waiting.{ A never ending series of internals, quizzes, assignments, externals..}

*No one is in charge of you happiness, except you and your batch mates.{Mass bunks, proxies, trips can be seriously fun. Arranging them is all left to you}

*When you don’t know anything about a tree, tie a cow and explain about the cow. But make sure that you write correctly about the cow. {Attempting unknown questions}

*The ultimate ingredient of a student’s life is his/her ‘Attendance’.{Marks and Zerox shops are also important}

*Theory of relativity. Time flies faster than light when you are with your friends. {Parking lot, my room, Chandu’s room, ground, evening walks….}

*Never leave any stone unturned.{ Grace marks can be awarded at any point of time for the out-of-syllabus questions. SEE-DSP,DSPA  CIE-Maths}

*Speed thrills, but kills.{Sept. 1st at M.G.Road with KP}

*Anybody can be an engineering lecturer. The only requirement is a degree/s. {Names not required}

*At times the most useless, hopeless things can come handy. {Smart cards-Reduction of entry fee at Wonderla}

*You will never enjoy a party (to its core) if you are hosting it. But the satisfaction of organizing is something else. {Fresher’s & Farewell parties}

*The only thing learnt in engineering is what you do in labs. {But the scariest exams are lab exams.  @ Deepak,Chethu}

*Parties can be organized with any budget. But the real enjoyment depends on the people involved in it. {Street side chats, Gokul, Pavithra, Arun, Sahana ,Suvarna Gate, Southern star,Meridian,RIP,Cake cafe…}

*Other’s Parents are always nicer than ours and our Grandparents are always nicer than other’s.{Too many instances to quote}

*No matter how much we criticize clubs we all envy the club members at some point. {Club events, Jamboree, Impulse, Break time..}

*Believe in miracles. {Examination Results, my selection at Onmobile Global Ltd.}

*Engineering is the easiest degree to acquire. A few hours of preparation before an exam can make you clear it in a clean fashion. {In comparison to medical students}

*You can actually use ‘AN’ & ‘ITSELF’ any number of times. {Names not needed}

*The city is not defined by the busy roads, number of malls, Cafeterias, Restaurants etc {Hassan is uniquely special }

*Solitude creates heaven and sometimes hell also. {My lonely stay as a PG}

*You will pass by atleast 1 MCEian in a theatre, restaurant or a busy street in Hassan. {If you don’t agree with me, probably you are not in Hassan}

*Grades doesn’t define a person, Attitude does.

*No matter how early you start, you can’t avoid minute mistakes and last minute preparations. {Prashanth, Jayesh, Tep- Final year Project}

*Even holidays can be boring. {2.5 months vacation after even semesters}

*You can actually love gadgets, computer games, literature,celebrities, movies, songs, automobiles more than your life. {Few things are missing in the list}

*No matter what all disparities we have regarding EC1 & EC2, Hostelites & Localites we are all ECians at the end of the day.

*Life without friends is Nothing. { Jayesh, Anup,Chandu,Kishan,KP,KC,Jagga,Tep,Praphul,Pradeeps,Bhuti,Mayur,Nonda,Akram,Gwata,Boyy,SK,Prashu,Kushal,Patil,Manu,Prathap,MJ,Chethu,Pampu,Faruk,Jeer,Raza,Chandru,Rajpal, and few more as well}

*The Only Paradise is ‘Paradise Lost’. {It’s almost the end of 4 years and I have started loving the city, MCE, Friends and the college life…}
