Peg’s Law

* . Jokes(?) apart, it has been two years and surely I qualify to be called a veteran blogger. Coincidentally, it is my fiftieth post too. Do check out two of my favorite posts in last year (here and here). People loved this post as well.For a light post after a long time, I present some of the quotable quotes by me in the last year.

Quotable Quotes
:

Pride:
(On being asked about certain position of responsibility in my hostel)
“I am in fourth year, I dont have to work”
(I wasn’t that lucky)

Envy:
(No reference to context required)
“Even he gets chicks!”
(No comments)

Gluttony:
(Chat transcript that repeated over 30 times in the 7th Semester)
Maro: Ascendas
Shankar: How can I say no to that?
Maro: Peace, leaving in 5 mins
(Ascendas is a food court that is open (used to) 24 hours…. my visit is usually between 1 am and 2 am)

Sloth:
(On being a Quality Management System Co-ordinator (QMS Coord) in Saarang without having to do any work)
“In 4th year, all I care is Grub (food) coupons and free entry into pro. shows (professional shows)”
(I was successful πŸ™‚ )

Lust:
(Near Monkey Falls…. looking at all dressed up women)
“What is it with Indian women, its like …. they are born with cloths”
(I know thats sexist and cruel, but one is surely gonna a laugh at it. I am not really that bad a person. trust me!)

“Three most wanted Ws – wine, weed and women….hmmm…. wine and weed can be brought with money. Women …… that too!”
(Really, it’s just a joke)

Averice:
(On being asked to share food coupons I got from being a QMS Coord)
“I don’t want to part with my hard-earned money”
(Eventually, I had to πŸ™ )

Wrath:
(on being ridiculed for celebrating blog birthday last year)
“Get lost!!! People do celebrate blog birthdays. ”
(I may have used more provocative phrase other than ‘get lost’)

It has been two years since I started the blog. It’s been great. Over the last year I have been less geekier then the year before, wasted a little less time, a bit more studious, a lot more serious owing to app, have had funnier status messages, blogged on both serious and fun issues and also, unfortunatly, chickless.

Past few months have been excellent. Been to Hampi, Goa, Coimbatore, Pondycherry and Delhi already. And I am looking forward eagerly to Tokyo in Mid-March. Hoping for a fun filled semester ahead. This blog will keep you informed.

In case you were still wondering, Peg’s Law is a mnemonic for the seven deadly sins.

*Update:
I respect Sri Sri Ravi Shankar as a person who has influenced many lives in a positive way. The status message did not intend to offend anyone and should be taken in jest. No offense meant.

Hampi, Jog, Goa, Coimbatore

Here are a few pics from places i have visited in last two months which are Hampi, Jog, Goa and Coimbatore. Most pics are here courtesy my brother, Srikanth. Hampi is a world heritage site declared by UNO. One look at the ruins scattered all over the place (350 sq kms) , you will know that it will take days just to see all the ruins present in there.
