september's ending....

September was once my favourite month. Not 'once' as you mean when you say, "Dinosaurs 'once' roamed the earth" or even, "Once, Dollar was over a 45 rupees!" In fact, I liked it till last month, before the university decided that the exams would start the next day of my birthday, and I had to leave home the day before my big day...

Well, that's a thing of the past. Got over it yesterday. Calicut University is as usual, making it hellish for students, and we are onto them, coz we also have learnt to take it in its stride. that ws already written once abt, so no more talk abt that.

so i'll write abt the silly exam that i wrote today. abt economics n principles of management. and one question was, what are the reasons for performance of the Public Sector? performance? Public sector? cud b corruption, mismanagement, red tapism... er no! tht was a question from the university. so the answer has to be, 'five year plans, experienced management, resources, good planning...' eh???? n hw to improve the situation? (don't use ur idea... wrt wat's written in books that were last updated before liberalisation, when India was not importing any food grain, fish and other stuff that it cud produce and when middle class was exotic!) so jus skipped the question and answered the optional question: role of agriculture in Indian economy and its contribution to the economy. just changed a few values of %s that i remembered from the text and wrote.

and the one about foreign exchange. what determines the rate? if export is greater than import, value of currency increases. does India then export more to the US than what they import FROM the US? else why does the dollar price decline???? don't ask such questions, they are out-of-syllabus, n learn wat's written in the text. is it becoz v r engineerin students tht we r supposed to study economics like this, or is it the same way for everyone? GOD HELP US ALL!!!!

so u c, it's not silly because of the subject... of course, i'll be the last man on earth to say that economics is a silly subject.... management studies is also not... it's just the objective for which university put exams for these...

oops!! got to learn a 100 status words by heart for my microprocessor exam on monday!!! (don't think i'm goin to start studyin rt now... that'll be later this evening... now gonna chumma take a cat-nap...)
