Back at Allahabad

It feels so nice to be back in allahabad. This time for recruitment at my undergrad school - IIIT Allahabad. They (iiita)have been such wonderful hosts that one feels amased at contrasting this picture with the one we had as a student. Anyways its always good to be back. The convocation was the other important reason that i had to come back to allahabad. It was great - with all its fan-fare! Prof S.K. Tripathi, Provost and Executive VP of SUNY, Buffalo gave the convocation address. On the stage while receiving the degree from the hands of Mr. F. C. Kohli, founder and former chairman of TCS, he joked asking me whether I was the same person whose photo was on the degree! I said 'yes'! Of course it is me! Coz of the recruitment thing, I am not able to spend much time time with family. I also wished I could go to Chitrakoot like mummy, mama ji and maami, anyways duty calls and as i say - 'Any thing for the company'. Missing my delhi friend/s as well! But IIITA is great. Wished we had come here earlier. Anyways, may be next year Tekriti will. Wont be able to show these guys much of Allahabad.

All day people kept bugging me about the T-shirts I had promised them. Gave one to Praneep, he helped a lot. Anyways, should wrap up now. And I must say, Ashish's has not got a pretty steamy new blog at : http://opera.latestinindia.com

See you in Delhi guys!
