Golu Episode #5 : You had me at hello

You might wanna refresh the series once again. And don’t forget where it all started!! The first episode 😋

Episode 1: Golu and First Day at IISc

Episode 2: Golu and his heroic love!

Episode 3: Who is Zafar?

Episode 4: Muskurane Ki Talab

~~~

“Here is your lighter, thanks”, the short-haired girl said in a soft-voice.

“Have it”, Golu took the last puff off his cigarette and walked towards the darkness near Material Science department.

Neha was surprised, but didn’t say anything. She just sat down on prakruthi’s elevated porch watching Golu walk away. She took out her phone and started typing something.

Half an hour passed. Neha took her attention out of the phone and looked towards Materials department. The poor guy was still sitting there. Not smoking anymore.

Only a single street light was glowing at the end on that dark walk-way of IISc. Golu was sitting at the dark corner where a beam from the street was passing just infront of him, without touching him, respecting the contrast of emotions in his heart. She walked to Golu, slowly.

“Here, have it”, She offered her last cigarette to Golu.

Golu simply took it, without even looking at her. And waved his hand asking her for the lighter. She put the lighter on his palm. Golu was about to lit that up.

“That’s my last cigarette btw. I wanted to have it”, Neha said in angst as she was expecting a bit of gratitude.

List of GATE Toppers’ blogs

 

People often say motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing!

 

While I was preparing for Gate, like everyone else, to be efficient I needed to keep my endorphins high. And the quick and easy answer to that is to read the blogs and interviews written by toppers. But, I always found it hard to search for different blogs on google (they might not be better SEOed). So, I thought of compiling it in one post. Aspirants can bookmark this listing if they want. Kindly note that, whatever may be your stream of UG, you can follow some or the other guidance by these people listed here. Inspirational bloods don’t have a caste, age or a branch 😛

Gate – My life changing Experience

Let me get it clear prior starting this. The so called ‘Life-Change’ doesn’t mean that I have passed one of the premier exam and my life has been changed thereafter because it have opened up ample of opportunities and other things. No, its not that! It never was! It is all about the path and not the destination, though it is as important as path is. Okay, well now I can start…

I am Tushar Shinde, an ordinary guy from Aurangabad. Aurangabad is a well known historical place in Maharahstra. I have secured AIR-37 in Gate-2016 exam from the Computer Science stream. As I promised to many, in this post I am going to share my experiences and other stuffs while preparing for it. You see, for any kind of preparation, one needs to be highly motivated. And it should be consistent as well. For me, I used to read blogs of various toppers, quotes, etc in the mean time.  So, don’t be afraid that you will get an overdose by reading so much of inspirational stuff. As one needs a daily bath, one also needs a daily dose of tinch of motivation. And as the saying goes, surround yourself with the people who want you to succeed.

I will broadly classify this post into following categories:

  1. My Background
  2. The Beginning
  3. The learning
  4. A life-changer game
  5. Last Two Months
  6. Judgement Day
  7. Result and Aftermaths
