Dont look Back in Anger

A lot , and a hell of a lot has happened since i posted last. Ok, musharraf and Manu Paaji still rule, but things are different. Almost a month and a half of vacations has meant more chilling and more doing nothing. Now that my only interview is out of the way, back to some serious blogging. Aint that something in itself?

Okay, so some of the followers ( i know its hard) of this space, have come to know through people that we happened to win the IMS quiz delhi round, and on a bit of stupid judgement, ended up second best in the national finals, which has led yours truly to believe that i am always destined to be the eternal runner up, those magic 10 points, alas.

This however, takes none of the credibility off from our worthy competitors in the delhi round, and the national finals too. We were pushed to the limits and beyond in the delhi round and a bit of good luck and inspired buzzing helped us scrape through with the skin of our teeth, and literally that only. As we had told by none other than Mr Handa, that we dont have a chance if IIT D shows up. Well, we did beat them and admittedly, we needed a bit of luck to do that.

And we did qualify as the highest scorers in the elims, not scraping thrrough as some of the other zonal winners did. The finals were a case of hard luck and bad choices, still we managed to push IIT M to the last question, a feeling unknown to most zonal winners. Bofi was his effervescent best as usual, during the quiz, and afterwards as well, during the cocktail & dinner party, where us, IIT M and a dear friend who had allegedly 'tipped' us as favorites, sat and savored the great evening.Bofi's partner in crime, Rohit, also had a thing or two to say which people usually do after three screwdrivers down and he also liked the way yours truly tells stories. Will tell more in future, i say. It would have been nicer to have other teams and come share some thoughts and have a drink with us, but they were getting a masterclass in gyaan, or so it seemed. As some of the teams i had met before, all those i had the pleasure of meeting that day, cheers to you all.

Thanx a lot to neha, my team and the pople who supported us throughout the delhi round, even when we were second last, after half the quiz had been done and dusted. Beatzo, the great, had his words of encouragement and well, being the champion that he is, means a lot to me.
