Eco Class

How to I start? Okay, I'll intro Sir. Dhiraj..

Sir. Dhiraj is my economics professor at college.. He's a really really nice teacher! He's really good with students and he's great at teaching eco - that's IF you listen to what he says.. The only problem is, everyone takes advantage of his sweetness.

Sir. Dhiraj will give you attendance when you need it, he will cover for you or stand up for you, even if he gets blamed for everything, and he'll let you talk quietly or even use your cellphone when it's banned in college.

Today there was this big fight between Miss. Sumedha Kamat, the Konkani teacher and Sir. Dhiraj.. Actually the matter was - These too guys named Hassler and Abhishek were making so much noise in her class, she told them to shut up if they don't wanna pay attention, or get out of her class and that she'd give them attendence. So they did! And now she denies that she told them that she'd give them attendance! The witnesses? - whole class! So soem of the guys went and complained to Dhiraj, and he just asked her about the matter and she fired him off! :steaming: Well that's one time he got fired for no fault of his..

Another time, about a week back, Sir. Sanjay Naik, the Hindi teacher told Naela not to eat canteen food 'cause she'd get sick. Apparently Amogh went and told Dhiraj this, and instead of firing Amogh, Sanjay Naik went and fired Sir. Dhiraj!

There are many times where I have felt like kicking the guys sitting on the last bench of our class out. They have absolutely no respect for Sir. When everybody else wants to concentrate, these guys will be playing with their cells! :pissedoff: It's so PISSING OFF!!!! :pissedoff: And h can't do anything about this. Even if he wants to give a remark, he won't, coz he cosiders students to be his friends..

My question is, if you were in his place, would you prefer maintaining a good relationship with your students, or would you rather teach as a teacher only (not as a friend) and leave class? Either your students, or colleagues. What?


Love is always patient and kind.
It is never jealous.
Love is never boastful or conceited.
It is never rude or selfish.
It does not take offense.
It is not resentful.

My Mottos

If you want it done right, do it yourself.

Don't sweat the small stuff.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

There are no short cuts to any place worth going.

When it hurts to look back, and you're scared to look ahead, you can look beside you and your best friend will be there.

Men who don't understand women stand into 2 groups, bachelors and husbands.

Parents start you off on life, and friends get you through it.

Don't play stupid with me, I'm better at it!

I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

Some people are alive because its illegal to kill.

I'm confused. No wait... Maybe I'm not..

Smoking reduces weight.. (One lung at a time).

Make Poverty History.


Grumpy talks

What'd you do when you've taken time off with great difficulty, and squeezed in time for some friends, and all you have do for 2 hours, is listen to the music you hate the most and listen to talks of the music? AND then suddenly, people who you hardly know well turn up and you don't have anything to talk about n an uncomfortable feeling grabs you?!!


Honestly!!! You remove your cellphone and types conversations to yourself. That way you're a little more entertained, and feel like you're having a liiiiiiittle fun. :steaming:

Boredom sucks. But you gotta deal with it. :movingon:


In Bombay, you need to book an appointment 6 months in advance, so u need to guess when you'll be getting sick.. A sandwich in a mall costs you Rs.60, and a 2 bedroom flat could rip you at 20 crores. The city sleeps after 1 am, and awakes at 5, with fresh vegetables sold on the streets at dirt cheap prices, all from the efforts of the poor farmer, who is burdened with worries of debt. And in the city where the rich live alongside with the poor, their lazy kids gorge on every bit of expensive food that they can afford to buy, much obliged to their well-paid parents. And so in this city dwell all kinds of beings, of all classes and castes, and an unclear segregation between them.


Finally edited my description on facebook and orkut. Here's the intro to me to u deviant users! =P

Hello! =)
There's loads to say about me, but I'll start with this. I've got black hair, like any other indian. Light brown eyes. I have an extremely disgusting artificial voice, and loads of pimples popping up on my face all the time. I'm very straight forward. Stubborn.. =( I love food, photography, art and music. My backbone is freakishly superficial, you could count my vertebra if I bend. Yes, defective, you could call me. :sarcasm: I'm unusually annoying when in an argumentive mood. I'm an introvert and extrovert, an idealist and realist rolled into one. My boss, (if I had one) would call me lazy. I love sports, technology, books, and biology. I'm not creative, I lack ideas, but I'm kinda good at portraying them.. :blushes: I don't like doing nothing. Shopping is fun, if not done regularly. I'm very dreamy. I'm crazy about animals with fur :heart:...except rats! I hate insects and reptiles.. :puke: I'm revengeful, bit forgiving if you apologize. I love preserving moments and saving memories. I need my space, always. My friends rock. Too much to tell, but - it's not hard to figure me out. =P

Oh.. And I can't stand smokers, excessive drinkers and abusers.

Another Bush Classic!

President Bush is rehearsing his speech for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games...

He begins his remarks with "Ooo! Ooo! Ooo! Ooo! Ooo!"

Immediately his speech writer rushes over and whispers in the President's ear:

"Mr. President, those are the Olympic rings.Your speech is underneath........
