So I am no different. Fights, misunderstandings, problems, work are part and parcel of college life. Not to miss the girls !!! (lol). Now, as this semester comes to an 'END', for people like me who opted for open elective, this will the end of college life. Lots of lament, mourning, wailing has been done in Facebook, Twitter but I wanted to make a long lasting impression and wanted everyone of my friends to know what I feel.
** I feel so happy for meeting R.Ashwath, L.Abhilash, Vignesh D, Adithya, Harish R, Kamal, Suresh, Sandhya, Shiru, Bhuvana and Viji. Without these people my life in college wouldn't have been fun
** Thanks to dramatics which united us. If not for that we may not have become what we are now !
** Chota canteen talks. Everyone used to remember a place where they had fun. For us, it is the mech canteen alias chota canteen.
** Though we have had lot of misunderstandings between us ( A LOT), nothing has affected our integrity yet. I feel proud for it.
** Sessions in Ashwath rooms will remian cherished in everyone of us for sure. All credits to Suresh and Abhilash for keeping all of us entertaining.
** Our exam time comedies [ cannot forget KD's laughing spree before networks exam]
** Our dinner outings !
** Last but not the least, 'THE JOINT TRIP TO VELANKANNI". I never expected it to happen but it did. Had the time of my life.
Guys, I am so damn happy to have been a part of all these and thank each and everyone who has left a memory in my mind of my college life for which I will be happy just thinking of it. Whether we will be in touch or not after college life, this post will remain here forever and will remind us of the fun we had.

<b>Facebook, Twitter, Orkut, MySpace</b> are some of the sites which are pretty famous among youngsters now. The concept of Social networking was born in 1990's to keep in touch with friends and family but it has evolved a lot. As of now, they are used as a source of advertisement ad money making venture by luring in people to use their features. It has changes the face of the internet ad Facebook has become one of the most popular sites in the internet. This advent of extensive social networking bought a lot of problems along with it.
· People become friends without knowing each others.
· People waste lots of time on non-productive activities such as games, quiz, and so on.
· Privacy problems.
· Addiction to social networking.
· Cut-off from the physical world.
There has been many problems and crimes reported because of Social networks. Kids are being blackmailed, bad company, money fraudulent cases, stress and strain and various other problems. To quote some:
1. A girl form Bangalore has been blackmailed by two of her Facebook friends for money and she has been stealing it from her mom regularly to give those guys. One day she was caught red handed and a police complaint was lodged on the two guys who were just of age 16 and 18.
2. A Mumbai girl sits in Facebook for almost 5 hours a day and had some 1500 friends in Facebook. She was under an emotional breakdown because her Facebook boy friend broke up with her and attempted for suicide.
I can just keep on giving even my personal experiences of waiting time in Facebook during exam, my friend wasting his whole time in his home playing a game in FB rather than spending time with friends and parents. The development of technology should be utilized for a productive work rather than this kind of time wasting entities. But I also don't tell that Social Networking concept is a goner. Everything has its own limits and we should use it in a correct manner. Last but not the least, to end this with a quote I choose a Tamil saying which says<b><i> "ALAVUKKU MERINAAL AMURTHAMUM NANJU"</i></b> (i.e.) Honey also turns into poison beyond a certain limit.
Post your comments.

Everyone would have tried to make plans and to follow them at some point of their life, but many would have failed miserably. Commitment is what a person needs in order to follow their plan. In the beginning, one or two plans may fail, but you should you be determined not to let your next one fail. It can be done in a pretty simple way.
1. Note down your goals. A written goal has more success rate based on psychological factors.
2. Prepare a to-do list and check it once you have do the job.
3. Fix a long term goal, write it in a big piece of paper and stick it in a prominent place in your living room so that it motivates you always.
4. Do not over-plan. Planning ahead of one week is not practical.
5. Dedicate yourself to the process.
6. Write a dairy to analyse yourself.
These simple steps can give a great boost to the quality of your life. You tend to become a tie conscious person and will make use of available time efficiently. Also, “A good plan today is better than a perfect plan tomorrow” - So ever delay your actions. Today is always better than tomorrow. So start planing and see the difference!

Today, I was seeing some TEDIndia2009 talk videos. One talk by Sunitha Krishnan deeply influenced me. Her topic was SEXPLOITATION IN INDIA. She is the founder of a social organization called Prajwala, which helps trafficked woman and girls. She was very bold and was straight forward in putting her facts to the audience irrespective of the sensitivity of the topic. After seeing that I got an urge to contribute something to her cause and I decided to write a post.
Sunitha started of by showing pictures of three children of ages four, five and seven respectively and later told that these three were sexually exploited and were infected with HIV virus. That startled me to a great extent and I am sure it will to you also. This shows the cruelty of Indian men. How sex craving men are? To what extent they can go? All these questions have really disturbing answers and something needs to be done for that. Sunitha then told that she has saved around 3000 exploited woman and most of them have been infected with HIV. She then told that mostly every sex worker has been tortured to a great extent and those people are affected badly by that and are not able to come out of trauma easily. Also, an important point which she mentioned was the role of society in rehabilitation of such woman. The basic barrier to these people is the civil society who talks about these issues but never actually accept them as fellow beings. She gave an example of her friends who were working along with her in helping out woman. One day her mother became ill and she wanted a lady to take care of her and she asked Sunitha to arrange a woman and also said " I don't want one of our girls and please find someone else". This portrays the selfishness of human beings at a great level. It is just weird to see people telling various things but changing their decisions when it comes to them. She has rehabilitated many of these women by training them in welding, masonry, carpentry and other works which are generally considered to be done by men because these women have more will power to fight in the male dominant society. These women are working in many big companies now and making a living out of it. Finally she pleaded everyone to break the barrier and see them as one among us and not to see them as a victim or as a different person and also asked to pass on the information so that it creates awareness among fellow human beings.
Here is a You-tube link of her speech and interested people can watch it here.
