The last week has been a fantastic vacation. For once, I have spent quality time during an academic semester enjoying myself rather than sitting in the last bench and complaining about the sheer monotony of life in an engineering college. You see, saarang is going on and the students of Indian Institute of Technology in Chennai sure know how to throw one hell of a party.

It doesn’t matter who you are, what you do or what you enjoy, if you are a college student in Chennai life just stops in the third week of January every year. Plans are worked around Saarang, deadlines are put off and thoughts of college work are banished.

There is something for every single person here regardless of what he/she likes be it dancing, singing, quizzing, writing, painting or public speaking (For ex: If you like writing you have four or five writing competitions lined up for you including 17th century Japanese poetry!) If you aren’t interested in any of the above you could still just head there for the spectacular sights!

As AC has mentioned here, it just irritates me that my college has to schedule the internal exams every year at the same time as this celebration. People talk about the college going autonomous, if that happens good luck to the future generations as I am sure that the college will raise the minimum attendance percentage to 85 and nothing but pure torture.
