Supplement is Compliment

This semester started with the supplementary examination. I have got arrears in MODS (mechanics of deformable solid) and Fluid Mechanics in 5th semester. It was a fatal blow for me but time is great healer. I continued my routine work without any idea of preparation for supplementary exam in 6th semester. In the summers, I was hoping to get 1 more supplementary in DOMS but luck was on my side. I cleared 6th semester without any back paper ingenious way. Now after returning from Germany, fear and lack of preparation was on my side. I reached Varanasi on 7th night with a good feeling to meet other back loggers. I was welcomed by Hathi, arvind, naidu, srikant bhaiya, rajjo, tripathi and chandu in raghu room. It was like meeting of warriors before a long battle. No strategy of study was planned yet. Night was welcomed by watching "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End". Movie was nice and many of our fellow sleep in same room due to lack of rooms. In short hathi, rajjo, naidu, birla, tripathi & me were sleeping in same room.

It is truly said "Prosperity makes friends, adversity tries them. "

Next day,8th July: was Sunday and many of Friends were arriving with full enthusiasm. We were now in a slow process of changing hostel and allotting rooms. Whole of the day just passed by with taking energy from our body. Date of supplementary exams were still unknown.

Next day was 9th July: Rush to department had started as supplementary exams were held from 12th July. So less time,so much to do.Our struggle against the system had started for change in date of exams. But it appeared fruitless in the beginning to bargain with them. But if god & hod is in your side, who might be against you? Hence after much negotiations led by srikant bhaiya and hathi with our huge moral support, date of exams were shifted. Now they were starting from 17th July.

Hence when all of ITBHU was studying for their placement,we were studying for our careers and life. Tough days were they...

Mockery of luck was played on one of our colleague and he became failed in elective subject of energy management. He was none other than Guptajee. One more player into the ring had entered with courage to cherish this exam. Truly said by me only - Supplement is complement.

Take inspiration from famous Iqbal couplet: “Girte hain shahasavaar hii, maidaan-ee-jang men, voh tiphl kyaa gire, jo guthno ke bal chale”.
