hey all..
the POND club is not about a club or an association... its being in a family away from family.. the P.O.N.D is a home away from home.. its serene, beautiful, a way to pass our time when we dont have anything to do @NITIE or a way to pass our time when we have lots and lots to do @ NITIE.. excuse me.. m talking about studies..
every evening ... even at afternoons.. we go to POND .. its a place where we can discuss ghost stories, we can fight over things like shahrukh and salman, we can discuss the handsome RAM and SITA of ramayan, we ignore, we mingle, we laugh our hearts out and we cut cakes too...
not only this, some of us even jog around it in the hope of loosing weight.. some jog around in the hope that they can enjoy the company of some of their likes.. lazy people like me just like to sit and watch the water and sky... while some just enjoy talking on their mobile phones... secretive talks ..hmmmm....
we all have different reasons to go there... but there is one common thread that joins us.. the POND.. dont know agar pond nahi hota to kya hota.. lets all pay a salute to the pond for giving us all that it has...

ofcourse the POND club would still have existed.... irrespective of the POND exists or not.. becoz we are frnds.. and its our hearts that join us not the POND obviously..
we all are doing our internships at different places and really really miss not only the POND but our POND club too... hope to meet u all soon...

Beware of Corporate Cowism

Disclaimer - This post is copied from the internet somewhere, not my original thought

There are emerging Cowisms in the corporate world today... Have a look....

You have a 1000 poor cows. You put them on a nice campus, & send them one at a time to the US for milking.

You have 10 cows. You make them work so that they give milk of 100 cows.

GE has a cow. You take 49% of the milk.

Intel has a Goat. Samsung has a Camel. Buy milk from both & sell it as Cow's milk.

You have old stubborn cows. You sell them as pet dogs to innocent small businessmen.

You have a cow. Force the world to buy milk from you. Spend a million dollars to feed poorer cows.

You have a bull. It doesn't give milk. You hate Microsoft.

You have a cow. You don't know which side to milk, so you sell tools to help milk cows.

You don't have a cow You sell milking solutions for cows implemented by milking consultants.

You have a cow. You sell iMilk.

You have a cow. You spend $50 mn to develop the world's thinnest milk.

Welcome to Citibank. If you have a cow, press 1. If you have a bull, press 2...stay on line if you'd like our customer care to milk it for you.

You don't know if what you have is a cow. You sell complete milking solutions through authorised resellers only.

You don't yet have a cow. You sell empty cans to people for Rs. 501, because Dhirubhai wanted everyone to have milk.

Are guys from Delhi better than those from Mumbai??

This post might interest girls more... as its a comparison about "guys".. Delhi Vs Mumbai to bahut suna hoga but Delhi ke munde Vs Mumbai ke chore unique hai ji..
For analysis, NITIE has sufficient amount of guys from Mumbai and Delhi and somehow they posess distict charecterics and hence it inspired me to write this comparison...** these are general chars .. exceptions are always there!!!
1. Guys from Delhi are street smart.. they know how to bribe the traffic police when caught.. they know how to make excuses to their boss, they know how to calculatively bunk classes..
WHile Mumbai guys are executively smart.. they know how to blabber something in english and get away from trouble.. they actually know how to play with words.. they think themselves to be KOOL while the delhi people think themselves to be HOT...
2. A delhi guy will always talk about chandni chowk, chole tikki and the metro rails..
While a mumbai guy will talk about the local train, the paav-bhaji and the beaches..
Whenver Delhi and Mumbai meet.. they cannot resist this argument.. "Tumhara Delhi accha hai ya Aamchi Mumbai.. Delhi ki metro mumbai ki local se jyada acchi hai.. arre.. mumbai jitna traffic nahi jhel paayegi tumhari metro.. Mumbai me jyada pubs hai.. are nahi nahi.. delhi jyada happening hai.. and it goes on and on...."
3. Normally, as i have seen... Mumbai people prefer to take a bus or train as their commute.. while those from delhi like to go by Auto.. Moreover, Delhi guys talk more about bikes, cars etc while this conversation never interests a Mumbaiits..infact many of the mumbai guys dont know how to drive.. but still they will reach the destination..
4. Ahh... about their attitude towards girls... A Delhi guy is more shy as compared to a Mumbaiya... jitne time me Mumbaiya ladki ko pata k juhu beach ghuma layega.. utne time me Delhi guy baat kaise start karni hai vo plan kar raha not commenting on the strategy... both strategies could b good if used in proper sense..but a Mumbaiya is a bit more open and communicative as compared to a Delhi one..
Common Guys... Both cities are equally good.. Dont Argue everytime...
These were just my observations.. i dont mean any offence to anybody..exceptions to these rules exist everywhere.. Any more comparisons... feel free to comment!!!

Does PINK make you weak??

Can pink make strong men weak? Do pink jail cells create a calming effect? Is it true that football locker rooms (the ones for the visiting/opposing teams) are painted a certain shade of pink to weaken the players?
One of the most interesting examples of color effects is Baker-Miller Pink - a color that's close to the bubble gum pink . Also known as :drunk tank pink," this color is used to calm violent prisoners in jails. Dr. Alexander Schauss, Ph.D., director of the American Institute for Biosocial Research in Tacoma Washington, was the first to report the suppression of angry, antagonistic, and anxiety ridden behavior among prisoners: "Even if a person tries to be angry or aggressive in the presence of pink, he can't. The heart muscles can’t race fast enough. It’s a tranquilizing color that saps your energy. Even the color-blind are tranquilized by pink rooms." (1) In spite of these powerful effects, there is substantial evidence that these reactions are short term. Once the body returns to a state of equilibrium, a prisoner may regress to an even more agitated state. (Link:
this is just one perception of pink.. there are many others:

Meaning of pink:
While red stirs up passion and action, studies have shown that large amounts of pink can create physical weakness in people. Perhaps there is a tie-in between this physical reaction and the color's association with the so-called weaker sex.Both red and pink denote love but while red is hot passion, pink is romantic and charming. Use pink to convey playfulness (hot pink flamingoes) and tenderness (pastel pinks).
Language of Pink:
The use of pink in familiar phrases can help a designer see how their color of choice might be perceived by others — both the positive and negative aspects.
Good pinkIn the pink - healthy
Tickled pink - happy, content
Pink collar - female office worker (sometimes used in a derogatory manner)
Bad or neutral pink
Pink collar - female office worker (sometimes used in a derogatory manner to imply low person on the office totem pole)
Pink - cut, notch, or make a zigzag
So.. is pink ur favourite color??

Are we living with Despo's

Despo kahika... is he a despo? really!!! lagta to decent hai...
these are some of the statement which most of the women make.. among themselves...
infact.. such men are not even aware that this is the word used for them at their back.. in gang of girls...
so.. what is a despo exactly? literally speaking, this is a slang evolved from the word 'desperate', which is generally used for men who tend to be too fast in starting a relationship or say.. who are after women who really dont like them..or who try to come too close to women (could b unintentional)
so why is it that most of the proffessional women has used this word for someone atleast once in her lifetime?? do we really have too many despo's around us? or women are trying to exaggerate?
The reasons are many.
1.women to men ratio is still very poor in proffessional arena (around 1:10), and believe it or not.. everyone needs a partner with opposite sex. Lack of options and choice makes guys too obsessive.. and too much attention makes girls too much protective about themselves..
2. Too much exposure to internet, and TV shows like MTV spitsvilla etc gives them new ways to impress a girl which may not be very suitable to a lady with typical indian mentality.
3. Guys with modern education think that its cool to ask a girl 'Are u single?' on the first meeting itself.. this may not be liked by a girl who doesnt have this kind of exposure, or could not be tolerable to many of them.
These were the reasons... and the consequences with guys who are too fast or despo's could be in 2 dimentions: either u end up making a girlfriend very fast and being recognised in ur college as kool
or u never know u are named as a despo behind ur back and u may loose out on the girl u seriously love...
so.. if u r a guy and u seriously like a girl.. do not pounce on her as if she is ur property...
do not ask questions which are too personal like "Are u single" or "wud u like to cum for coffee".. this is a complete No-No for the first urself.. do not try to pretend as if u r too kool or broadminded, this could backfire..
even a decent and sober guy can come in the category of a despo.. u never know...
All the best :)

Love is Dillema!!

This is not aimed at anyone.. someone wrote it.. i just liked it thats y it got a place on my blog :)
Love is Dilemma She said to me - “Love is Exception Making.” Well, I will have to agree to that partially… But for me, U r falling in Love when u face lots of dilemmas… Whenever I feel very strong and confident and if at that moment, I hear her voice or see her or just have a glimpse of her inside me – I suddenly become weak. She is like a switch turning me on and off at ‘her’ will. No!!! Should I say at ‘my’ will??? I am in a dilemma. Well this dilemma is love. Whenever I am at my deepest pits and I feel that I cannot even blow a candle out on my own and I need someone’s assistance to finish this job and if at that moment, I hear her voice or see her or just run a slideshow of her in my projector with the inner side of my closed eyes as the screen – I suddenly become stronger than Super Man. She is like a switch turning me on whenever she feels like. And she is the same switch who turns me off to… Well this is the same person, I am talking abt. How could the same person do exactly opposite things to you? I am in another dilemma. Well, this dilemma is love. I can hate her to the fullest without any regrets. I can love her to the fullest without any limits. I will hurt her and the wounds in her heart due to me will be the most painful. I will show joy to her and with my smiles in her treasure she will be the richest. I will make her work a lot without giving any returns. I will work for her a lot denying all returns. I will slap her ‘willingly’. She will slap me back just to make a point. She will yell at me when I am angry at her. She will also yell at me when I am not angry at her. I will be ready to take a day off to help her when she only needs a tip. Sometimes, I will also not help her whenever she is really desperate and at those times, she will understand me beyond me. Dilemmas keep chasing u in love…. Previously, there wouldn’t have been any face to your dream girl. But now her face is sweeter than what your dream girl’s would have been. You know that she may not fulfill all that you expected from your dream girl. You would have always thought you were very deterministic and focused. But now there is a dilemma. She is there waiting at the gates for you to come out of your boundaries. You just start walking towards her, blinded. Blinded because of two reasons – you are not sure why you are leaving all of you for her so suddenly? Blinded of another reason, you are not even sure whether she is waiting for “you”. Dilemmas again… Undeclared results for an unwritten exam. You will love her when she hates you. You will love her more when she loves to talk abt her love to you. You will fall more in love with her, the more she tries to prove that she does not match you. Then you will suddenly doubt yourself, Am I in love? Bcos, I am supposed to be angry with what she is doing to me. But this very dilemma is Love. Because if you are not in love, you will not be asking this question to yourself.
