...In Between Dayyzzz...II

The best words seen or heard is one's own name.

“Who is the happiest of men? He who values the merits of others and in their pleasure takes joy, even as though they were his own – Johannn Walfgang.” You are the happiest person ever – don’t change – reads cedric’s message. And I exclaimed “All is well that ends well”. 

Memorable message
Scenario on 17th & 18th Aug'2011:
The story began quite some time back. It was “Samriddhi 2011 mania” at GIM. After a close to miss out for auditions of compering the national level B-school meet, I made it to the “Supporting team” of compering for Samriddhi 2011. I was little disappointed because support team has only support work. There were six other main com-parers for the event. Thoughts of going back home for four days hit my impulse. But I hanged on for all I knew was “something good would be in store – As I am “The child of Destiny”.  

Cedric the propagator of the team gave a warm welcome to the centre of “limelight” for the next three days. He made sure supporting team would give their best by saying” the demarcation is only for convenience and pure jargon”. The ray of hope raised as these words looked genuine.The next two days turned out to be the most memorable. 

Library became our 1st home. 8 heads split into pairs or threesomes were churning the creative cerebrum. We had speakers coming from different arenas of corporate world. Few had a remarkable personality and attractive career paths which made it possible to make their introduction catchy. The bigger task lay in introducing big personalities but not so limelight attractive work done. This is the major challenge, for anyone and everyone can introduce the known. The real work is the latter and they deserve it.

Sipping coffee outside Library - cafeteria in front

Sipping coffee outside library, watching rain and groaning at work in such captive weather, We came out with the best possible scripts for the introduction of event, personalities etc.  Each minute added to the joy and learning. Entire college was engaged in activity and the common goal of every work was Success of Samriddhi 2011. Mails floating, students carrying boxes, wires, teams meeting with various coordinators, helping each other grab a bite of food, decorating, making arrangements for the stay of speakers, escorting participants to the campus, it all looked like I am working in an event organisation firm. I felt proud to be an integral part of it.

Next we headed for the voice auditions. it was pretty easy going and I had decent reach and clarity. Past mid night we get the blast in the most wrapped cover. The pairs to be compeering the opening event were disclosed to ceric little time back.  He was or **** to be disheartened to disclose it earlier. We expected at least 3pairs would be considered. It was decided that 2pairs would be taking up first and later half of the day and who were the persons? Well it’s not appropriate to make judgemental reasons but to put it the choice was not justified. So this followed the night of “19-08-2011 – 2am” with things left just there.

Beautiful Amphi out there.....
P.S: Today the Mother Nature was at its best. After showering the best of rains incessantly for 2 days, I woke up in the evening and opened my window. As one of my friend’s status on FB best read “Is it a bale of cotton or a wooly arms of the cloud enveloping around”. I gaped and ran to the terrace. The entire college was a “picture perfect” moment. With winds brushing the clouds faster and faster across the campus, for the first time something blurred looked so pleasing to the eyes. I wanted to capture it, but I thought I would love to capture in my eyes and with surety there would be many doing so with virtual lenses. One of the best moments so far. In much deeper love with “Mother Nature” compensating the absence of “God made mother”.
