My Life at IITB

I was one of the more fortunate freshmen of my batch, not being put into Hostels 2-8.

Thanks to my good luck, I really enjoyed my stay in IIT, in Hostel 9 ( Pluto ) with some of the best friends I'll ever have, the Batch of '94.

Academic life was also cool, as I had taken the precaution of not doing too well in JEE, and so I ended up in the Metallurgical Engineering department( Now known as Met. Engg. & Materials Science ), and got by with a little help from my friends, the taporis ( IITB slang ) of the Class of '94.
