96 students have the same best friend


2 - 3 people having the same best friend is acceptable. But 96 ? Seems next to impossible. But our new generation of students have proven that impossible is the new trend.


The Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB) has caught 96 copycats from an exam centre for mass copying in the English paper SSC exam held recently. Interestingly, it was their collective best friend 'Vikram' who spilled the beans as all 96 students had written a photocopy essay on 'My Best Friend' without changing the name and basic traits of their khaas dost.  


This same thing happened when I was in first year. Our class had just gone on a Industrial Visit and each of the 65 FY students were expected to submit a detailed report. Since I was incharge of collecting all 65 word docs, I told them to write their name and roll number as the heading of the document as well as the subject of the email. What I got was around 20 - 25 word docs with different subjects on the email but one common name and roll number in all word docs.




 Apparently just deleting 20 characters and writing your own name is a lot of work! If everyone helped each other so much all year round, we would all start getting O grades in our semester exams. Talk about yeh dosti hum nahi todenge!

Sab Ganda Hai, Par Sab Dhandha Hai - Maha Govt Plot Twist

Everyone looks forward to weekends for the simple reason that they get to relax, unwind and recharge themselves for another hectic workweek. But not the Maharashtra Govt. Atleast not this weekend. In between Friday night and Saturday early morning, our State Govt proved to us that if they put their minds to getting something done, they will; even if it involves staying up post their working hours. Hail Politics and Self - Interest!
I guess it's pretty apparent by now what this writeup is going to be about. But no. I won't bore you with that anymore. Instead, I'll include a few links to help you catch up:

I just came to know ALL these products belong to HUL (Hindustan Unilever) and I'm shook

Two years ago my teacher sent the entire class on an assignment as part of our Principles of Marketing subject in which we had to visit different retail outlets and check which company manufactured them. I remember going to one such place with 3 other class mates, with Note Pad open in our phones and discreetly clicking pictures of all HUL products. It sort of felt weird at first because we had never done the picture clicking part before, but slowly got used to it as soon as we realized that the line of HUL products was just never ending. We submitted the assignment the next day and that was the end of the story.


But just yesterday, I opened the HUL website again as part of my semester  VI Logistics subject assignment (yes I do get homework even in TY!). I was surprised by the products that I saw.
