Initially when I began blogging, everyone used to tell me that you need to ensure you have more followers, more commenters, more readers, more RTs on Twitter, more likes and what not. Even these days there are many who keep writing blog posts just to make some easy money and improve the above mentioned statistics without worrying about content and quality. But today, as I write my 200th blog post, I believe that all these things are secondary.

6 years of college life – A life well lived!

Going for long walks with your girlfriend or best friends, going to movies after bunking classes, coming late to hostel, fighting with the warden, sleeping while the faculty is telling the most important of things, ogling at all the possible girls in your own as well as the junior batch, coming late to class so frequently that the day you come early, the faculty is shocked out of his / her daylights – College life is about all this and more.

A guest post by Yaamini Radhakrishnan for my blog: Movie Review – Inidhu Inidhu (Tamil version of Happy Days)

The Tamil remake of Happy Days, “Inidhu Inidhu” finally released on 20th August. Since not many of my friends know Tamil, I was in a huge dilemma on whom to watch the movie with. Finally to my luck, my childhood friend with whom I grew up in Tamil Nadu was in the city. So I watched this movie with this friend of mine. Watching this movie was a spontaneous decision. Both of us wanted to watch a Tamil movie and this seemed the perfect one .

The movie is set and extensively shot in the campus of Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT), Vellore. The choice of this college for the movie is simply superb as it has a wonderful campus. The movie begins with the introduction of the characters Sidhu, Tyson, Vimal, Shankar, Madhu, Jiya, Umar and Appu who are a bunch of freshers in a college. They get together and make a fine gang. Soon Sidhu and Madhu, Shankar and Sangeetha, Appu and Vimal fall in love in the second half of the movie. Meanwhile, Tyson ends up falling in love with a senior Shravanthi. The rest of the story of Inidhu Inidhu is how about they spend their four years of their education in the campus going through all the emotions of love, hate, jealousy everything.

The story goes with how these people with different backgrounds, join together and become friends. Their emotions and sentiments are wonderfully captured in the movie.

Inidhu Inidhu is a happy go lucky feel good movie that makes u laugh, enjoy and also brings you to tears. It is a culmination of comedy, college fun, family bonds, emotions, friendship, values, ego, jealousy, falling in love and heart breaks. There is not a single scene in the movie which u won’t connect to.

The movie doesn’t get too dramatic and is very simple and straight forward. The best part about this movie is that it is very close to reality as it shows the life of teenagers, their pressures in academics, troubles in friendship and also the values they learn in friendship and love.

Almost all college students will go through this phase of life. You will end up seeing yourself and associating yourself with at least one of the characters. The characters that really impress you in the movie are Siddhu (played by Adith), Madhu (played by Reshmi), and Tyson (played by Nararyan). They really stand out in the movie due to their realistic performances. There is a good feeling about the movie from the beginning till the end. You will just wish it never ends. This movie takes you back to your college days. It reminds you of all the fun happy and sad times you have had in college.

The music of Inidhu Inidhu composed by Micky.J.Meyer is simply superb and even outbeats his own composition in the original Happy Days. Few songs which were used in the original have been retained in Inidhu Inidhu and are sung by the singer Karthik himself, who sung the original. The songs Ammakale, Kalori Thayeh and Ennangal Vaannoki are new additions in this movie.

The movie begins with the song Ammakale which is a very peppy number and has a vibrant energetic feel to it. The song Inidhu Inidhu will definitely remind you of the person you love. The songs Kodi Kanavu Kanil and Kalori Thayeh remind you of the pleasant memories spent in college and are simply superb while the song Vazhkai Oru has a rock music start which is really different from the original “Oh my friend”. This song reminds you of the beautiful feelings of friendship and will definitely remind you of your best friend. Hats off to Micky.J.Meyer who has wonderfully modified his own composition of Happy Days.

All in all this is a movie one must watch atleast once. I can assure you that this is a movie that surely won’t disappoint you and it keeps you hooked on till the end. I thoroughly enjoyed myself through the movie. It is a different thing that this movie holds a very special place in my heart so I was badly waiting for this movie to release but I strongly recommend all college students to watch this movie at least once in the theatre irrespective of whether you understand the language or not . As one says language should not be a barrier. It’s all about how the movie connects to your heart.

An awesome treat to all college students who are still in college and also those who have passed out. Have fun guys!!!

My rating for this movie—4.5/5

VIT does it once again – becomes the 1st Private University in India to get ABET accreditation


VIT – the beginning

Ok, guys here is the first chapter of the most beautiful days of my life at my lovely “VIT University”. So here it goes…. 5th July 2005 was the day I began a completely new chapter in my life. Ok for the people who dont know, that was the day we started our lives at Vellore Institute of Technology (I seriously make sure that I tell everyone the full form here especially in Pune because they tend to confuse it with other VIT’s like Vishwakarma Institute of Technology).

Ok, first I should start off from how I landed up at VIT. Till Jan 2005, I was all like “I want to do ECE” (obviously even I dont know why I wanted to do it :P). Then all of a sudden I got interested into Biotech (ok now what was that?.. obviously I didnt have a clue abt it again :P). For some reason I have had a thing to go with the bandwagon many times even though I may not know whats the whole thing about. Mom and Dad obviously were confused and wondering “Oh god! What does our son really want to do”. So they asked many of our family friends to give me a counselling session  about all “GOOD” courses ranging from B.Pharm to BBA. Obviously I was all the more confused after this.

Then all of sudden one fine day on March 21st 2005, one of my dad’s friends told him about VIT. My dad’s instant reaction was like “VIT!!! Where’s that??? Is it a part of CMC?”. Obviously I as usual had no idea. But my dad was finally happy that I had a chance to do Biotech Engg and not I dont say that its bad). But the best part was the way the things worked out. My dad called up VIT on 21st March and asked all the info regarding the course, fees, facilities blah blah!! He sent the documents on 22nd March and I was of to India on 23rd. So basically the next four years of my life were decided in just a matter of 3 days flat!!

I landed on 2nd July 2005 at the Anna International Airport (Meenambakkam). It was my first time in South India. After taking a taxi directly to Vellore, I started experiencing the heat, humidity and air of Chennai. Watching  the ladies with Mallipus, the guys in lungis and also hearing them talking Tamil, it was all a new experience. We reached in about 2.5 hours. The Chennai – Bengaluru highway is one of the most amazing highways in the country. After reaching, we all had to run around for the amazing no of formalities ranging from giving the certificates, getting the hostel, getting the reciepts etc.

In the time Mom and Dad stayed there we went to the Jalakanteshwara Temple (the next time I went after the first day in Vellore was probably in second year ;)). The next day I couldnt go to Tirupati with them because of formalities at college. All these days even though they stayed at the Guest House, they made sure I slept in my room (obviously because I had to get used to the days ahead). It was a really new experience to stay in a hostel for the first time – Ramanujam F-Block (Room No – 535). It was a cozy little single room (with AC – yeah guys I am a spoilt little brat). They left on 5th July. I met them near the Food Court, touched their feet, bid them goodbye and walked back alone to the hostel with tears in my eyes as they walked towards the Guest House.

But in the next couple of days, weeks, months and years I made many friends (some good, some bad, some amazing, some stupid) with whom I lived a life. Arun, Girish, Mohsin, Ranju, Anish, Padhee, Basu, Ahalya, Sruthi, Riya, Atulya, Juvin…(I know I am missing many many names here ) – but all you guys made my four years memorable, beautiful and amazing. I have tons to talk about all of you.  The experiences between me, Arun, Giri and MBL, the fun with anish, padhee and ranju, the emotional talks with ahalya, the business plans, mba and ims experiences with sruthi, the ever  smiling  “riya”,  my dear brother “anish” and above all mine and Ranjus friendship. Then there are also other things to talk about like the experiences of working for Riviera, E-Cell, SEDS and what not. So stay tuned and keep reading to know more!
