Some CD Flak …

Have you ever wondered … why the Principal is the dumbest guy in the college ?
He never seems to make a right decision … atleast not from your POV …

In my entire life, I’ve had exactly 3 principals … 2 at school and 1 now …
The problem with Principals is that they are very, very old …

Talk about the generation gap !!!

I didn’t have much problem with my school principals … its the college one who is bothering me a bit … mostly on the CD issue …

Firstly, I was pretty much forced into making the CD Magazine … which I knew from day one … was going to be a pretty crappy job …

Then the changes … thousands of it …
Actually, it took more time implementing the changes than making the actual CD …

Throughout the entire process … I always updated a few fellow companions with the CD .. how much it was done … and they all gave me the ok tag … just to make sure that I wasn’t getting carried away …

And, when we give the Princi to see the CD … for one whole day … he doesn’t … and then last minute … more changes …
And very, very stupid ones at that …

And in my college … the second you have to do something for the college … you are completely screwed …
You go to play for the college, take part in a contest … even if you win … no attendance …
On top of that, they expect you to have completed all the assignments on time …

The biggest burn was when we organised an Inter Collegiate Event …
People who went to put up posters and announce the event in other colleges ( which is a necessity for any event ) were conveniently put up in the defaulters list …

Too much restriction and the staff want to get involved in everything that we do … even though it does not really concern them …

When recently, we were at MIT-WEC for a game development contest ( which we won … :) ) , the vice principal actually came, sat with the participants and asked us for suggestions as how the contest should have been and areas for improvement …
Now, thats how staff should be …

  1. Ya , seriously ….
    I remember the vice-princi during my brief stay at MIT-WEC .

    If not anything , he managed to say something in understandable english !!!
    He was a real cool person , imagine he almost had a friendly fight with me in his office , regarding whether i should change classrooms or not , since I was a new student!!!!

    And wtf is the “Published By… ” on the cd cover ???
    lol !!!

  2. Hehe …
    The principal wanted to put that thing inside the CD …
    But somehow, Patil ( thankfully ) talked him out of it …

    Actually that means that he is paying for the CD and is responsible for it being published …

    What it means to me is that he is responsible for any mistake that I made …
    For example … if I had by mistake put a full version of Norton AV on the CD … he would get screwed for it …
    and would actually end up buying 1000 licences :) …
