A comic take on the counselling

"u ppl lack discipline, and bcos of u ppl even iam becomin indisciplined"

"huh... whats this guy's problem", i mumbled in semi conciousness..twas another one of Reddanna's(thats wat i call this guy) boring classes. This guy manages to lull me into sleep no matter what..frm the moment he walks in to the moment he walks out i either concentrate on the T.I.M.E(pun intended[;)]) or manage to doze off. so ye ppl mus be thinkin wats new this time..i was thinkin the same when this thought struck me.

The counselling for the new batch concluded a few days ago and i was breathin a sigh of relief..i mean wat wid all the parents mobbin u at first sight..i had to remain confined in my room for 2 days for fear of bein accosted and asked stupid questions like "what are ur grades?".."what is the expected rank to get admission?".."why didnt u score 4/4"..dude even my parents don ask that question.

The counselling day was even worse, i almost fainted seein the explosion of humanity at the cafeteria, the only consolation that day was seein some really hot lasses whom i sincerely hope will join the college. ahem....so gettin bak to the thought that set my imagination runnin wild was this piece frm the movie Matrix...so here goes my take

the scene opens at the Lecture theater wid da director addressin the hapless students hu look like guinea pigs goin for the slaughter..

"hello students.As u no doubt hav guessed iam the director of this institute. I imagine u're feelin a bit like Alice, tumbling down the rabbit hole"

"yes" the students mumble

"i can see it in ur eyes, u have the look of fellas who accept what they have been given because they have no other option. Ironically this is not far frm the truth.so let me tell why u are here.u're here bcos u know somethin.what u know u cant explain but u feel it.u felt it the moment u stepped into this college, that there's somethin worldclass about this place. u dont know wat it is, but its there like a hope to ur downtrodden soul. it is this feeling that has brought u to me.do u know wat iam talkin about?"

"ICT" the students say in unison

"do u want to know wat it is?"
Enchanted,the students nod like zombies.

"ICT is everywhere,it is all around us. even now in this very room, u can see it when u take a look at the big screen or when u see tht public address system. u can feel it when u chat on ur mobile,play games on ur computer,listen to the radio. it is the field that is going to take the world by storm and prove a point"

"what point?"

"that there is no distinction between IT and CT. u never know where IT ends and CT begins"

*pause* (where both the parties are in deep thought)


"unfortunately no one can be told wat ICT is. u have to study it for urself. this is ur last chance after this there is no turning bak"

"u leave here without paying the fees, the story ends, u go bak home and later repent havin missed the oppurtunity of a lifetime. u pay ur fees and secure ur seat, u stay in DA-IICT, and i show u how worldclass ICT is. rmember iam only offerin a course nothin more."

i mean wid a speech like this the guy is sure to floor the clueless kids and eventually the seats do get filled up

* * *

A year later when their seniors(us) are goin to graduate they realize this institute aint Recognized nywhere or by nybody. outraged, they mob the directors office demandin an explanation

"what about the recognition?" they huff

The director maintainin the same serene face replies
"what is recognition?. if its about placements, being able to write GRE or CAT, then wat r u guys complainin abt? "

"But our institute is not recognized by the AICTE"

"if recognition is about getting affiliated to a body that has no powers and isnt sure of itself, then we dont need it" saying this he hops into his car and hurries off.

Speechless the poor creatures turn to their seniors, the seniors are more mature and resigned to their fate

"i know wat u're thinkin cos right now iam thinkin the same thing. infact i've been thinkin abt it since the recognition thing blew over. why 'o why dint i buzz off home when i had the chance? so he said he's gonna make u a 'generalist specialist' eh.. "

the kid nods in dismay

"JESUS!!! he didnt even change the damn dialogue. hey! a little piece of advice, next time u hear the director speakin, u do wat we do. "NOD" jus Nod ur head off, but don take wat he says seriously"

Suggest this one to your director:
"What are the things that we see, feel, hear (about Accredition)? They are nothing more than a set of electrical signal (read green signals) supplied to the students by the ICT". I am sure he will be gald to have read your post. Good read, buddy!
