Ashok's Diary 2


It’s Round 2 of my Diary .

As much as I hate to publish this, it’s the only way to get everything right and True.

Today, I am taking a step further in fulfilling the main objective of this site – Putting down my Memories of B.Tech. What better way to put down memories, than read out my diary. Unlike last time where I scanned my diary and left it for you to read by yourself, I’ve typed the whole thing to make it easier.

I chose one of my MOST memorable moments of my B.Tech. I found this one while I was dusting my good old diary off the shelf.

This is from 2007 – My Second Year, Second Semister. After Four Months of Training with my batch-mates (ECE-II) with the sole purpose of defeating our Seniors (ECE-III). We even faced Nature (Literally, we played for over an hour in the rain many times). Our only motive was to defeat our seniors who in the previous year easily wiped us out. Our team consisted of

Ashok

Y.Karthik

Shashi Kanth

Anirudh

Shivakar

Pardhu

Ajay (Extra)

Asish used to taunt us, calling us “The Final Team” when we were practicing. We always divided ourselves into two teams. One – ‘the final team’ and another consisting the rest. The rule was the loser has to get out of the field and give their places to those who are waiting to play. The Other team always lost. We were constantly trying to improve ourselves, our team co-ordination, understanding our players weakness’ along with the Seniors’ too.

We don’t want to ruin the fun by telling everything, do we?

I’ll let the Diary speak for itself.


Wednesday, Jan-10, 2007

Don't remember the periods that happened today, bu the games/sports were commenced in the afternoon. The volleyball matches were to be conducted today. The timetable was

ECE-III Vs. IT-I

Winner-I

Winner-I Vs. Winner-III

Finals

CSE-II Vs. CSE-I

Winner-II

ECE-II Vs. ECE-I

Winner-III

Winner-II Vs. Winner IV

IT-II Vs. CSE-III

Winner-IV

I was shocked to see that we are going to compete with Anil’s(My elder brother) class

eventually, but was happy with the first round (happy, but cautious). We were sure that ECE-III(My Brothers Section) would easily reach the Semi-Finals. The first match results were expected. ECE-III won in two sets(out of three). CSE-II too won(These were in the finals last year). Our match(ECE-II) was difficult but we cleared it in the end. I made a mistake to go on to striking & to be at the center (Anil told me this). Tomorrow’s match is not going to be easy. Not easy at all.

Last year ECE-III defeated us very easily in the first round itself. 7Hills told us that if we win tomorrow's match against ECE-III, he would give a Bavarchi Biryani party to all players (Bajji said he would supply the water packets). I thought of replacing Kranthi with Y.Kartheek (Ajay was not an option cos our back end was strong enough). Went to the Java class (in the evening). Felt very sleepy.


Thursday, Jan 11, 2007

Was not sure about today’s periods(classes) but was very nervous about the match with ECE-III. Everyone in our class were telling me to win this one match only (They meant win this one and we need no other). Seeing the defeat we’ve taken last year in Volleyball against ECE-III, this match was showing to be more difficult than expected. Was pulled out of ET(Electrical Technology) lab for the match. The match was (for) 3 rounds. Everyone from our class was present (they bunked) & were cheering their hearts out.

Started the first round (lost the toss and found ourselves in a side with the sun facing us – big disadvantage). They were a bit negligent in the beginning (Anil was at the center). Scraped a good many points with our Under-arm Services ( I was doing one mistake – taking the centering and interrupting the cutter – Shashi (again) – but I rectified it before it was too late). We won the first round pretty easily. The cheers reached the skies. The second round was very difficult. They (Srikanth – ECE-III) targeted Y.Karthik who was not fast (active) enough to take the ball at the net. They won the second round.

The third round was very very difficult to clear. They took the lead at the beginning. I thought if we are losing the match then why not lose it with my Upper-arm Services. But the services, turned out to be a blessing. It gave us a good 7 or 8 points. We won the match with 13-15... (ECE Rocked Indeed) Everyone of our class guys ran in to hug & cheer us (They even carried some of us halfway to the canteen). After about twenty minutes the finaly Volleyball match with CSE-II.

I agreed for a 5-round match. They won the first, we won the second & they won the third. We were very tired by the end of 4rth round. What with ECE-III cheering CSE-III (that’s betrayal – cheering for other group), we were (very) discouraged. Anyways, lost the 4rth round. Disappointed we were, yes, but were satisfied with the defeat of ECE-III. Went to Java class. Very tired by evening.


This was the first day and the first time, where almost the whole college viewed an event with such involvement. Even our class girls cheered for us when we played the match against our Seniors. Pardhu, Shivakar gave their best from the backe end. As did Shashi, Anirudh and Y. Kartheek. Whatever the result was, we never got neither 7Hills' Biryani party nor Bajji's Water Packets.


Its a matter of perspective......

If you are searching for 'Secrets Unknown' in my diary, I'm afraid you won't find any :) . I told you already. Its all a matter of perspective :)
