Ceg manatha vaanga poringu!

Yup! That was how our mu p ( microprocessor ) madam summarized her opinion of my batch. In her opinion, we are the worst batch ever to hit the CSE Dept in recent years and, according to her, we`ll create so bad an effect on the CEG name, that the top rankers will choose SSN over us! I was wondering whether we really were so bad and i dont think we are, whatever field you choose! A look at some of the “gethu” people of my batch whom i know:

  • Thanumalayan – Head tech guy in our year CS. Java Guru. Any technical doubts you have, go to him. Excellent programmer. My class topper last sem too.
  • Vinod – Excellent researcher. Foremost in enthu in learning new stuff. This guy just goes out there, thinks up a project, simply learns whatever he needs to do it, and finishes the project. There is nothing he cannot find on the web, no e-book he cannot get for you!
  • Jegan – Stays up-to-date on all the new technologies that come up. Among the very few people in AB Batch with a technical orientation of mind. Very good programmer.
  • Prashanth – Math genius. First class performer on the mridungam. Does three concerts per day in the music season!
  • Sivaguru – Excellent problem solver. Among the top 100 ACM ranked programmers in India. Need i say more? Also one of the best Sport quizzers in Chennai.
  • Nitin – Among the best Sport Quizzers in India! Finalist in ESPN College Quiz Champions of the World.
  • Narayanan – Nitin`s teammate in the finals of ESPN College Quiz Champions of the World. AB Batcher 😛
  • Srikant – Excellent public speaker. One of the best i`ve ever seen. Guy can talk his way out of anything and everything!
  • Pradep -Superb graphics designer. Every poster in CSAU and CSE is designed by him. If you saw his posters you wouldn`t believe he`s a second year! Great programmer too – his team was ranked 23rd in Shaastra`s OPC last year.
  • Rahul – State Under-19 Cricket Captain. Played for India in under-15 category : Went to Lords and played against England Junior team.
  • Srivatsan – Walking talking Math. Winner of countless Math and Geography olympiads. One of the top 200 programmers in India ( going by ACM Ranking )

And i could go on and on.. To boost us up , we got a rare compliment from Lenin anna – he said we`re the most brilliant ( in terms of enthu ) batch he`s seen.. Lets see in two years time whether we bring CEG laurels or shame – but i hope it`ll be the former!

  3. Every year, every batch this comment comes up from those “specific teachers”. I dont know what they gain out of telling such generalised statement.
    Anyway, just ignore them and dont bother about them. Keep working as you people do.
