The Legacy of Ex- Gentlemen and women

Another day in paradise, not quite. As usual, saturdays are meant for sleeping and lazing around, and watching movies and reading, but today was different. As i was the defending champion of a quiz, i had decided to bunk a cricket match, and instead go for the quiz. So i went, and as and so it happened, the quiz was done by some extraordinarily intelligent and astoundingly brainy CREATURE called arpita, and had questions ranging from medico trivia, to old calculus stuff from class 11 and 12. Sadly, they even managed to squeeze a couple of "wrong" questions in the elims. And yeah, did i forget to mention, the elims was MCQ's- multiple choice q's for the uninitiated. So if any of you grew up playing Samurai and atari video games, you would have gotten those 4 and 8 in 1 types, surely. Sadly, when these SAD elements of quizzing combine, you are the game who is played, and all of it is done without any rules.

Now, my disappointment is not with the quiz, believe me, in the era that i have quizzed, other people including myself have seen much much worse, something these people can't even fathom in their wildest dreams. But when i have a streak of 4 victories in LHMC, and winning whatever i have shown up for, i think i am entitled to a bit of chit-chat and banter. So the quiz starts and we are told that its a MCQ format, with +1,-1 scoring, sadly, i told my partner to hold back and not maaro tukkas. Not a prudent decision, i may add, but it would have been worse to qualify, then i wont have written all this.

I have nothing personal against LH, i have won some good quizzes, one was a real shady one, where i almost got a -15 for jumping up and down on stage, which was revoked, and we managed to win that joke of a quiz by 5. The other quizzes have been pretty good and better than many others i have been to,as far as the quality of content and presentation and were done by a very good friend and partner,neha. Sadly she is no more a student and as they say, quizzing has gone to the dogs. I had done a quiz for them last march which was well appreciated, had ok ok participation, but sadly the feminine jealousy and envy of some one 'else' coming over and doing a quiz there was not tolerable and the lit secy. was blasted within a couple of inches of her life, so much so that she had to cancel a few events.

Now i am not a world champion, i repeat, but i have beaten all my contemporaries and a few others, so i can run my (keyboard) mouth on MY blogspace. And this post comes against all doctor's orders, so i think i may get blasted by a few people later on, which i won't care, considering it would be peanuts whn compared to what i had to FACE in the morning. Not that i have won everything i ever took the elims for, the biggest learning curve was sitting as audience and being a scorer occasionally, ironically enough, sometimes i miss that too.

I wasn't always this spectacular and this good, i learnt as a understudy from my seniors, who literally taught me how to quiz, for some, that may be stretching it a bit, but i have no qualms about using these words. Yes, LHMC has been a subject of speculation before and much too much has been made of nothing. i dont want to start a world war again. They can atleast learn from neha, just a little bit, and be MORE sensible and open. Gloating on egos of self dependence and what nots won't serve anyone for the better, would it.Yes, all of us learn, but not when the reputation of the college is at stake, for a college is known by the quality of the events they put up at their fests, believe me, mine is a lot worse. I dont think the CREATURE mentioned above or any others apart from neha would come and read this, but i hope they do. SADLY, Hope is all i have....

Well since this post is dedicated to my college n mentions me a couple of times, i guess i should comment.
Though i don't think I am qualified enough sitting 250km away from the scene of the crime and having absolutely no idea as to what went on. of course the picture u present i gory enough n i would take ur opinion of a quiz above any other even if they are my own juniors or collegemates though sadly in this case, it happens to concur as the one msg i got from back 'home' read..
"what a bakwaas quiz di..mcqs 4 prelims! :0 n that too with +1 n -1!!".
the fact that this sms was sent by the -15 culprit just goes on to show how bad things must have been.
So all i can say is sorry for the trouble buddy..as contrary to what u say I am still a part of that college though phyisically not there anymore.n perhaps what angers u saddens me coz i remember i did one of the best quizzes of my life last year at the same time...
I have no misconceptions about the std of quizzing in my college and i wont blame the ppl concerned simply for the reason that its tough to keep up with ECAs in a med college.having handled most of it for the past 5 yrs , i can just say that arpita(somebody about whose identity i have no idea) was just a 'somebody'..who never quizzed, will never quiz n will never hold the quiz again..she did it for the sake of duty..of getting another event done n not for the love n joy of it.So again i would just say that keeping in mind the past experiences u have had , just dont generalise it to "LHMC"..i am sure there will be better things in future..or yeah..there may be worse!
as for the self-dependence part...yes i believe as long as u have ppl competent enough to do the job..i am all for it. infact if some outsider were to do the quiz in my college if i were present , i would take it as an insult (unless of course if that person was the very best, which i assure u my college cant afford). but i also belive that its better to take help then make a fool of urself...the only reason i recommended u to my lit secy last time around as i was not there n believe the reaction of some of the so-called quizzers of my college left me totally exasperated n my poor lit secy in tears.No , i dont grudge them their self dependence for surprisingly quiz is a very small part of what the hardinge girls manage totally on their own..(n believe me u , i surprised myself doing that as the cult secy) n manage it pretty well too.So its natural to have this feeling that 'they can do it' for a quiz too (which sadly is considered a tuch event if i am not there).
so i believe the solution to that is probabaly not getting outseiders to do it n end up paying for it too but get together , take advise n i think docs have nuff brains to pull things thru.
well, all i can say is thanks for all the nice things u said about me and as u said nobody apart from me will probably read it n i knew it already , so i dont expect things to get out of hand. i'll just consider it a vent to ur rightful indigination in ur own space.
n the 2 quizzes i happen to be the defending champion of in my coll got cancelled ..so i m happy ;).
well a few points on ur 'highlights':
1. i am sure she was brainy n inteligent though i have no idea about the extraordinary n astounding part, else she wdnt have been in a med coll.
2.ur dissapointment should have been with the quiz.i dont see anything else to be dissapointed with.
3.quizzing went to the 'dog' this time around. rem u did the last quiz :P future of course is another story!
4. well the jealousy was not the feminine jealousy (that if i am not wrong shd be for a girl not a guy)..it was more of a particual individual's ego not being nursed..n u know the story..
5. n yes, most imp. no THEYS..its SHE..plz dont drag the innocent bystanders into this. quizzes are organised by individuals ..they shd get the boquets n brickbats.
6. u think ppl come to hardinge for QUIZZES? being in DCE u shd know better :P..
chal..chill..i m sure theres a lot fo better stuff to be won n hopefully i might do the quiz in march..:)

e -15 culprit has a few justifications, as u mention, im sorry, i dont generalise, but in the end, we all do. For eg, janki devi will be the college where the teachers end up doing a quiz. and quite reasonable stds. Hindu wud b a college where people chuck u out for spell errors

sadly, good or bad is defined on the basis of subjective judgement of one or two or a handful of events, luckily enouh, my college has had a tradition, sdaly that looks to be going in the next 2 years with no hope left.

So in case they are so inept with hadnling quizzes, fuck it, dont do it, i m sorry but no other words would talk sense into their pig head brains, brainy, any person with a IQ of 20 wud b brainy, she's worse than all of them, sorry for being so judgemental, but before i ever did a quiz, i sat thru a few, so i was ok, not GOD, but not DOG either.

Scrap the quiz rather than do it like this, people have to get up on mornings to go, u knw, yeah well, we have the choice, but we all make bad choices, dont v?:)

1. judgement left to the speaker, first hand exp advised
2YES, HELL yes, u r right
3. the dog is a singular of the DOGS to come, i hope for ur sake and the legacy that u have, it works out other wise, I HOPE.

4.so the individual has actually burned the standards, and u watched, sadly, i dont think u cud have done any more, so forget this

5.i wont knw of a brickbat, but i hope she gets worse

6, thats for a college called UCMS, not DCE, hope u knw, u have been there bfore :)

ab yaar main kya kahu..u know better..if u want to generalise lh with a non-entity like arpita i'll just shut up :).
wo dog tumhare liye nahi tha, woh ek pj tha.
1,2,3- we agree i guess
4- naah ..she didnt burn any standards..nor did i stand n watch..wasnt there else wd have given her a chapaat...:)
5-knowing my coll, sadly she wont get anything.
6- now THIS becomes the big debate...barring the quizzers, UC DCE bhai bhai..believe me ..i have been there before :)
n yes dont use such terms like 'legacy' for me..i m hardly that n also this blog is read occasionaly by gods who think i m just another girl who can't think logically :P..unki feelings hurt ho jayengi.. hehe..
