GPSM: Nostalgia

Anniversary week special guest post by Smita Mishra

It’s the time of the year again. Examinations, end of another semester, project vivas, report submissions. In short, it can be described as the most chaotic and hectic time of the year for any engineering student. And so it has been for me. But, amidst all this rush and bedlam, there is also a lingering thought on the back of my mind that this is it; the last semester of my engineering career. There won’t be any more rushing to early morning classes (which is 10 AM in my case :D), no more arguing with the mess staff about the rotten quality of food, no more active discussions with the management about conducting Fests in the college, no more running around to clear attendance shortage dues. This is it; the end of 4 years; the end of an era. Continue reading

It seems a philosophical though but read on you may find it interesting as well.
As per me there are three kinds of people in the world.

  1. Dreamers

GPSD: Some Thing from the School Days!

Anniversary week special guest post by Shilpa Deshpande

This is something that happened when I was in the 8th grade. I prided myself on being a very strong, fearless and forthright. I also liked to think of myself as a no-nonsense person.

Mine was a co-ed school and most my classmates were at the age where the opposite sex was a subject of supreme interest. Everyone had flings or were rumored to have flings with someone or the other in school. The normal ones were supposed ‘chakkars’ between peers. 8th graders with 8th graders. The really A-list ones were where girls from my class had boyfriends from higher classes. One such ‘chakkar’ was between this really pretty girl in my class(lets call her M) and this good looking, albeit on the rough side, 11th class boy(P). Continue reading

GPPW: I do

Anniversary week special love story (guest post) by Pallavi Walia

I do! Do I? I do! Do I? I do! Do I? I do! Do I? I do! Do I? I do! Do I? …..Maya was typing away these words. After a point she realized the exercise was futile and just pulled her head down and hid it behind her hands.

“I love you hands Maya, they are the softest I have ever touched and kissed them lightly.” These words from Karthik were buzzing in her head when someone tapped on her shoulder. It was her colleague Neha who laughed looking at the computer screen and said, “Is this a new innovative method to sort out confusion in the head; punch in rather pluck petals”. Ignoring the question, an exasperated Maya just kicked aimlessly in the air and cried out why it is so difficult for me to utter the word Yes? Continue reading

GPGB: Friendship

Anniversary Special guest post by Gaurav Bhorkar.

There are some people who don’t forget to talk to you, who are always behind you, encouraging you, stand by you in difficult times. I think they are your true friends, than someone who gives you study notes, pay for hotel bills, etc. I am very fortunate to have such good friends. And there comes the vacation time, when you miss your lovely friends who are away in their village enjoying, but you feel good when you talk to them on phone. Your ears soothe when you hear their voice, talk good things with then, and enjoy the conversation. And you smile when you hang up. Continue reading

GPPV: A Max Toast

Anniversary week special guest post by Prateek Varma!

So it has been 2 years since Mayur shifted to WordPress. He started his innings in the blogging world on Blogspot in 2007, but didn’t take it seriously, until the creative bug bit him hard at WordPress and he has been at it since then. I was going through his earlier posts and I saw that no one has ever reviewed his blog. I know it will be puny of me to try and review a blog that has been around for quite a while and that gets as many hits a minute as the number of times I think about starting my studies in a day (I think about it a lot, so don’t scorn or sneer). Continue reading

Anniversary Week Prologue

On coming Friday, 28th May, my existence in the blogging world will complete 3 years. I had started with blogspot. But after dabbling with it occasionally for a year, I shifted to wordpress. Things have been great since then. Last year, I celebrated my first anniversary on wordpress by writing a candid introduction of myself in ‘Hindi’. This was followed by guest posts from Kidakaka, Prateek and Pallavi.

The readership has increased manifolds since then. In fact I’m looking at 98k+ hits on my blog already. This alsomeans that number of volunteers for guest posts has also increased. This year we will start with a review of ‘Maxmayur’s Blog’ written by Prateek and will be followed by guest posts from Pallavi, Gaurav, Sandeep, Shilpa, Durga, Sapna and one more post from Prateek. Besides this, I’ll write a very special love story and publish it on 28th, the anniversary day.

So watch out for some very interesting and cool stuff coming up. Look forward to participation from all of you. I also hope my readers help me to push the number of hits to 100,000 during the anniversary week itself.   🙂

Foot Note: Anniversary special guest posts will be tagged as GP(initials). For example, Prateek’s post will be tagged as GPPV: (post name) or Gaurav’s post will be tagged as GPGB: (post name). As a foot note I’ll add how I know them. Readers, if they wish, can introduce themselves in the comments section.
