tiger is free but is the dragon?

So much has been hyped about the India and China's race to the top. There are so many surveys and researches being done to find out that little difference which proves who is going to win. But tell me one thing is this economic growth the only factor we must compare the two countries to decide which is better?
As most of the researches have shown that, growing like as they are in present, china will overtake US to bag the first position and India the second. But hey!!
I don't bother about that. Tell me what is the sense of being rich and prosperous but still not having the freedom to express yourself?
No I’m not talking about Airtel! But what I’m pointing to is the difference in the governments. While India enjoys the democracy with complete freedom for all its citizens as long as they don't try to misuse it. Chinese are bound by their own government in the way that they can't even say anything against their government or wrong about their culture. The government has blocked websites (even Google search has a lot of restrictions); anything that is against government is immediately prohibited.
And come to India you say whatever; even if it’s against government you always enjoy the support of the opposition. It’s a pity that some political groups use this freedom in the worst way.
I'm proud of the freedom that I have over a Chinese who's richer than me, what’s life when you can't even say openly about your own country !
I just guess what would have happened to M.F. hussain if he was born in China ?!

guys...!! help me...

so many maals in NITT campus... omg..!! help me !!
i guess this is one thing which seriously made festember worth a FEST to remEMBER.. hehehe.. ;-)
its time when i've seen more gals than cows in our campus...
this edition of festember ... as expected, was truly remarkable. May it be Radio Jockeying or pottery or theatre workshop or the pronite by KK.. everything jus made it better. On the top of that all was food.. CCD stall in the our campus... though they dont have it in trichy, having it in festember I'm sure those CCD guys must have made big money out of it.
And yea how can i forget doing catwalk like a gal on the airtel informals stage. Its a different matter that the guy said that i turned it a lil vulgar... well now dont ask me what women ramp walk is all about... ! :-D
Informals kept janta busy throughout the day and now i guess no one is gonna yell out that festember's chaat. And those who went home thinking that have missed some great moments of their college life. Who's gonna have this all after college?
This is one of those times i feel like ... yea, there MANY other things apart from placements that make this college better than others.
But there's only one thing that i'm afraid about now, how many of these engineering students will actually take up engineering as their career?
I see more painters, dancers, musicians, actors and writers here than technologists!



September is here again and so is the annual cult fest of NIT trichy. Festember is one of the biggest cult fest of south India and this year its going to be just better. With a pronite by Kaykay and semi pro Rock contest the fest already seems attractive, but for all those who ever wished if they too could try their hands on RJ-ing.. the workshop on Radio Jockeying is like a dream come true. Apart from this there are workshops on origami, caricature, theatre etc. and loads of lits and cult events.
20-23 september is the time when its all gonna happen... So just be there and enjoy... read the offical blog and check the festember website for more details.
