Sunday Fun – B11 Gettogether

B11 refers to my TCS ILP(Initial Learning Programme)(Training Phase) batch in Bhubaneswar. This batch had a diverse population with people from Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Mumbai, Indore, Delhi, Bangalore, Kerala and Gujarat. It was ultimate fun with B11. ๐Ÿ™‚ We joined TCS on 27th of june 2007. It was the end of 2 years and the end of the bond on 27-jun-2009.ย Kavi, Dinesh and Iย had planned for a gettogether for the B11 guys who were in chennai in the blue lagoon resort, ECR. Kavi and I fixed up the itinerary and we had lots of imaginations running in our mind before that day. We had planned to assemble there at 9am and soย we bothย came to the resort at 8.30am to make things ready before people arrive. Sharp at 9, another guy arrived. Another guy came at 9.15. Games were planned from 9.45 till 11.30 and then we thought of getting into the swimming pool. But the irony is that the rest of the guys came to the resort at around 11.15 ๐Ÿ™‚ All plans were shattered. But still we didn’t miss out on the fun. We started playing the fun games at 11.45. Balloon fighting is a game where balloon will be tied at the back of each person’s leg and then people willย have to start running around trying to break the other person’s balloon with their legs. If a balloon tied to a person’s leg bursts, he is out of the game.ย The video below showsย the final phase of the game. ๐Ÿ™‚

Then we played ‘egg placement game’ in which 2 guys have to stand back to back and an egg has to be placed inbetween their backs. They have to bring the egg down without it breaking. Just imagine this. Those two guys will be in a kind of mess, if the egg breaks ๐Ÿ™‚ Then we guys went for swimming and came out with great deal of hunger to the restaurant in the resort. Lunch was yummy. We had plans of going to the beach after lunch but it started raining heavily. But none of us were bothered and we challenged the nature by playing in the heavy rains in the beach with the ball. After sometime, nature won the gameย and it told us to get out of that place. ๐Ÿ™‚ Kavi and I had a surprise for everyone that evening. Here it is!!!! Yummmy cake.

Half of this cake was on our faces at the end. We just ate little ๐Ÿ™‚ Now it is time to depart!! And the gettogether ends with great deal of happiness on everyone’s face ๐Ÿ™‚


Sunday Fun – My Best class ever

Fun Part:

My Best class ever was 10th Standard.. It was total fun. I knew nothing other than fun. I knew nothing other than talking in the class and getting caught. The first time I wore stylish spectacles and got teased for that. The first time wrestling happened inside the class and stone cold steve austin will be fighting against rikishi & shawn michaels most of the time where stone cold is none other than me ๐Ÿ˜‰ This class was a mix of everything. Highly humorous , highly studious, highly arrogant, highly playful, too calm, highly helpful etc. are the factors that describe various students in this class. Everything was extreme and hence the term ‘highly’ ๐Ÿ™‚ Diverse nature of people made the class lively and we did adjust with each one of them. There were PT(Playinfg time) hours where we travelled to other school campus and played cricket. The day we had PT, we used to form cricket teams in the periods before it without listening to the classes. We would act as if we were touring pakistan for a cricket match ๐Ÿ™‚ PT hours would arrive. We would start off with our bats, ball, stumps and start playing. We would be cautious in the way we play as girls would be playing throwball near us. Everybody wanted to prove a point saying hey ‘tina’, hey ‘seema’, hey ‘x’, hey ‘y’, i am the best here ๐Ÿ˜‰

Coming to the class hours.. OMG!!!! did we ever listen to one of the classes? The way we made fun of our our ‘Botany teacher’ who would dress like a model at the age of 55 ๐Ÿ™‚ and our history teacher was nothing more than a ARTS College student would do. There is some kinda bonding bet me and my history mam. Nearly 75% of her classes i have stood outside ๐Ÿ™‚ Someone would make some noise and keep quiet and I will be the person laughing nonstop like madhan bob(Actor) and will get caught. She would stare at me even now if I go to school. Awesome bonding between us. Also the sound that comes from my maths mam to indicate silence. ‘Ssssssss’ – sound of a snake. The whole class will repeat the sound after she does it..:)

Did I do something useful?

Ofcourse yes. There was this RSP(Road Safety Patrol) club where our class members were most active and we are still remembered for that. The time when we used to stand in front of our congested school roads and regulate the traffic was awesome and it is unforgettable. We felt the pains of the traffic police. We had some kind of satisfaction doing that. We were asked to continue that for the next 2 years by the staffs on their seeing our dedication. Also, I used to score low in tamil always and my mom was afraid that I would do badly in 10th xams. My tamil mam conducted high achievers class for a selected few who were performers in that subject. I, without any hesitation, went to her and said ‘I also would like to be part of this class as I wish to improve in tamil’ and she agreed with a smile and appreciated me for my interest to improve. My score started to shoot up everytime after that. ๐Ÿ™‚

Things that i couldnt understand:

There was a guy who scored 97 without writing 2 essay questions ๐Ÿ™‚ Reason being that mam likes that guy very much. He got badly teased for that. ๐Ÿ™‚

The same guy who told that my friends had copied in the test, showed his answer paper the next time to the girl sitting next to him and told us that “I didn’t know what to do when she asked me” ๐Ÿ™‚

The days when I went to the front of the class as a representative and wrote the names of my classmates who were talking and put an ‘X’ mark in the side of the names if they spoke twice. ๐Ÿ™‚

Kid : Didn’t it pain for you when he cut your stomach and put me inside?

Mom : Had little pain.. But when he put a healing medecine for my pain and worries inside my stomach(which is you), all pain went off.. ๐Ÿ™‚

Kid : God is very nice ma.. He doesn’t trouble ppl. And when he troubles them, he gives them a solution.
