Ahem..ahem...Um....yeah. SO it goes like this.When i thought i of writin another blog, it wasnt of the sort u hav in front of u right now. It was actually gonna be an excerpt from my diary which i wrote a few days bac. I was impressed with myself with the lines i wrote so i thought of sharing them wid u all. But, on the second thoughts i found those to be nothing but a bunch of depressing thoughts and upset words. Thus it was in all a bad idea to pen them down. OOPS!!! i mean type it for ya.

This morning i was in a fix wat shud i be writing on the blog then. But thank god he sent MEGHU to help me out.We mt on the dinning table during breakfast, he told me he was really waiting for my new blog, "U know golu m waiting for ur blog.I click it every day and i dont find it updated".This statement of his landed me(it was infact a bumpy landing) in a state of turmoil."OH! MAN wat the hell".But this statement of his pushed me towards writing the kinda blog i wrote last tym.So, thanx to meghu for helpin me out although he did it unintentionally, but I"ll love u for this.

Here it is,another blog to lighten ur stressed minds by some touchy moments with a tinge of humuor sprinkled over it.In the last blog on PAPEREX i didnt mention a word about the day 9th, December, 2007.Hey KARAN... u must hav thought i didn write anything abt ur bday or infact there might be no goddamn importance of it in my mind. hai na!!! So here i m with a whole blog dedicated to u and ur bday.

Let me get into the details now ANI, VIKS,MOLU(KARAN) and me were in Delhi for the PAPEREX. The day before his bday we planned to give a surprise to MOLS by ordering a cake on the morning of 8th. While KARAN(wont use molu that often or else he"ll get bugged ) was taking bath in the morning, VIKS told me to go downstairs and order a cake.I did so and came bac even before he came out of the bathroom. Actually KARAN generally takes a hell lot of a tym to bathe. First spreads hot water(infact wasting it) around the bathing area so tat he can feel the aroma of warmness and once he gets the feel starts with d process. We told the care taker of the place, we were staying at, to collect it at 8:00pm in the evening.

After enjoying the day we came back without showing any sign of giving him a surprise. We were quite late and it was almost 10:30P.M. . On our way bac home, KARANs sis charu called him up to wish and told him tat she had sent for him a cake. DAMN!!! Hell broke down on us. She ruined our surprise. VIKS was really annoyed by her act"Couldnt she wait for another hour. We wudnt hav eaten the cake by ourselves for sure!!!!" KARAN started to walk hom as quickly as possible as if brisk walkin for a few hundred metres wud make him slim n trim. The first thing he enquired his caretaker was "Did i get any parcel?" In reply he got two. He thought his sis had sent him two parcels, but it was Viks who told that" the other ones ours idiot don’t be senti for her, be senti for us idiot" .

KARAN became emotional, does the same thing most of the tym: He held his head in his hands and was like" Oh my god!!! oh my god!!!.Thanx yaar thanx.I cant believe it.Nobodys done it for me". We told him to stop the NAUTANKI for the tym being "Theek hai theek hai bahut ho gaya ab tera".VIKS and ANI were really angry and sad and obviously me too. Viks said in his angry tone which obviously he cant retain for a long tym"Abhi toh sirf hamara cake katega, U can eat the other one tom."After opening both the cakes we said ours is so marvellous and her cake was "YELLOW, YUCKO".We didnt wait for the clock to tick 12:00, infact after taking a glimpse of the cake our mouths started watering and we didnt want to wait for even a sec. Um... i feel like tat cake agn.I bet MOLU and VIKS’s belly wud soon start craving for a piece of cake as soon as they read the word cake here.These two are generally in search of food and are a complete gourmet.

The nxt day the three of us thought we shud do sthg else to give him a surprise after he had gone his cousins house in he afternoon. Actually after charu sent the cake we didn’t feel like we did sthg so it was it,the master plan came into action as soon as Karan went out. Although none of us had the slightest of the idea what we wanted to do. We just started our work and then things just kept on adding.Viks and I went to C.P. to buy a gift. Ani had his hand injured as usual he is never alright. Its one of the body part causing scourge to him.

After searching for Archie’s for over an hour and roaming about the whole inner circle we were thankful to god we finally found it. We found the best we could in our little pittle budget and came bac hom. But we were still not satisfied. We thought of giving him a surprise at Hotel SHANGRI-la. We thought of meeting there at tea in full delegatory style, which reminds me of Viks doing his "yeah…yeah oh!!! yeah" in his metro guy style. But we wanted to make it special for him more than that too. We were stuck at the idea of a terris garden dinner due to MOLUs love for peace and harmony. We searched on the net but we found none.We did the arrangement on our own terris.There is nothing like ur own hom.

Well my mood got spoilt jus now so don’t feel like writing anymore but will hav to complete it anyways.The spoilt mood is gonna pay in the left over blog,though. We thought of doing it on our terries. We took the chairs and table on d terris. I went down and bought a few candles and a bottle of COKE. We lit the candles and started to wait for him as he was at his cousins house. We were enjoying the view from the terries with the flames of candles fighting against the wind. Well it was our friendship which kept them alive.

When Molu came I waited at the terries while ani and viks brought him up on the terries by saying "lets go upstairs and enjoy the weather, after all its ur bday today". As they went downstairs I did a little jig and got down to work. I placed he cake yeah the yellow yucko one at the centre of the table and candles surrounding. As they came up i switched the cruel intentions instrumental, his fav.

As he saw the arrangement he started on with his senti dialogues. Absolutely the same ones I explained before. Kabhi toh change kiya ker yaar we r bored with it now. As he started with it we were like OH!!!MAN not agn. Gave him the present and sat down there doing chit-chat, the thing we r best at, until the candles dosed off.
Those 4 days at delhi were great fun and i would rememer for ever.There is another chance of conference at delhi after this weekend but i dont know if i wud be able to make it to that one.

PAPEREX' 07-8th Paper International Conference

It took me some tym to think,rethink and realise what my nxt blog wud be and here i m with a blog to live up to the expectations of a paper technocrat(in the makin of course!!) .The blog expatiates the highlights of Paper Internstional Conference held in DELHI from 7-9th, December, 2007. It was the first International Conference tat i attended and infact my first conference ever.Thanks to my peers ANI(anish),KARAN(molu,although he used to be quite frustrated by that nickname before,but, we love it) & VIKS(vikanshu) of course who took me with them for it and the HOD of our dptt. who made it possible for us to get free entry there.The conference was accompanied by an exhibition by various paper industries for all 3 days.

The conference has given me some charismatic memories tat i will cherish for a long tym.But the question is tat why m i writin this on my blog???The reason is simple and tat is tat i found a bag full of new and incredible things about the field of Pulp & Paper technology which would excite to know more and more about this field.Its not tat i m publicising Pulp and Paper on my blog(waise bhi my blog isn't so famous tat i can publicise smthg on it :) ) but i want everyone related to this field shud know the depth of this branch so that u can try becoming a paper technocrat.rite???

Wrong..its all crap m not the writer of the millenium tat i can create a picturesque view of the whole conference in ur mind.So jus read and have fun reading u like it, comment on it, u dont like comment (criticize it) on it.

DAY 1- 7th December,2007:

With Sun held high and spirits in us high we reached the venue for inaugeration late as usual maintaining our dignity of not reachin on tym.Reaching the wrong gate and getting ourselves registered for the wrong exhibition got us even more late, though we didnt miss much.The most important part beingthe speech of John P. Harrison who left us all scratchin our heads with his keynote which was that the Paper industry has lead to so much of the defforestation that there are forest denuding to a large extent and there wud be no means to make paper.The other chief guests were Chairman Taffco, Vice president TAPPI and a few more imp. names that i seem to hav forgotten.Then we moved towards the Conference Hall we seated ourselves in one of the last few rows[the same way we sit in our classroom ;) ].

The first day, full of excitement we intended to attend all the three sessions the first one being the one with Pradeep Dobale, CEO, ITC Ltd. as the Chairperson.The most prominent of the speakers was Sunil Sood,April Marketting(V.P.).His Presentation was based on the scarcity of pulp if the recession of trees continues which would lead to high cost pulp and then high cost paper and thus encouragiong electronic media.The presentation given by him was really touchy.He was very polite in his speech and he was so ingenuous that u could see how sentimental he was as if he was making a call an urge to the people to wake up .He said lots of things about tree scarcity in the future.All four of us were really impressed by him and were dying to meet him.(Karan toh as usual becomes a fan of anyone in a flash kabhi DEAN toh kabhi JASMEAN) the end he said in a way as if makin a point to the CEO,ITC saying "i can do it pradeep,i dont know how"(i don't remember it completely) showing how sentimentally attatched he is to the feild and showing the professionalism Mr. Dobale and his emotional attatchment to it.

After a mindboggling session of 2 hrs we had Tea with virtuosi in the field of Pulp and Paper from all over the world.The Tea tym was used by us to do some social networking with them.Who so ever we met were more than glad to find students from IIT Roorkee, Department of Paper Technology.They would all greet us with a jubiliant smile and would start on the conversation with great verboseness .We were surprised and happy to get this kind of a response from almost all of them.We wre flying high even without a peg of booze to get such respect that u go in any part of the world be it ASIA,UK or the US.The day ended leaving us all strianed but filled in us a feeling that the ady was really worth it.

Day 2- 8th, December,2007:

We reached the venue next morning, we could feel the tireness of last night in our bodyAll of us(except karan of course) were not willing much to attend the conference today and wanted to enjoy it.I was very excited to enter into Fespa exhibition(electronic gadgets) so the three of us(viks,ani and i) went there and karan went to Paperex.We were enjoying ourselves(actually jus me and not the other two) at fespa and were stunned to see the various new gadgets for printing and all. A while later Karan called up and said he was gettin bored and so viks and ani were elated to leave Fespa.However, i enjoyed the paperx exhibition as well which we attended later.There we saw various techniques of packaging,drying,then beating,et.The most facsinating of all was the hand made paper.The process is simple the beater used is a simple one and then they would make various patterns on the surface which can be used for packing and also for decoration purposes.Although i cant create the same picture in ur head but can tell you tat there were stalls of all the famous paper mills be it BILT, ITC or TRIDENT showcasing there different techniques and new technologies which fascinated all 4 of us.

The next thing we did was forex into the WINE Exhibition.We were so excited to visit the wine exh. tat we gor ourselves registered as fast as we could and made our way into it.It was a paradise for wine lovers be it KOREAN,FRENCH,UK or AUSTRALIAN.Some of us tasted wines(obviously Karan was leading the way to Viks and Ani) i refused to taste it but the tragedy was tat i tasted a mocktail containing RUM(which i didn know for sure) , Ugh... it was really bitter tat i threw it away at jus licking it.Damn i m not a teetotaller any more.Hope my parents dont come across this blog of mine else... OH MY GOD!!!!!i'll be dead man walking.

Day 3- 9th, December,2007:

Ahh alas!!The most awaited day had arrived the last day of the conference and also the day on which Our HOD was to chair the first session.It was our chance to get high in Hods eyes by reching on tym.We were trying really hard pushing each to get up from the bed as early as possible, bathed with ice cold water(light was out), missed our breakfast, took an auto to reach the venue.It was it, LATE again by half an hour(nobody can help us i guess).The session was related to Research and Development (Water and Ozone).The session had main aims to make a call for using agro based paper and low consumption, possiblity of producing zero effluent method with the help of the kidney technology.

The session ended with the speech of The Chairperson(our HOD) which impressed all the ppl present in the hall that tym and we were stunned the way he conveyed his message in such voluble way.Encouraging the speakers in his session who were young scientist so made a cal for an applause for the young leaders.

We then left the venue and went into the WINE Exhibition coz ani wanted to get a pic with the wines so we went especially there for his pic.Those three days were quite hot and happening for me when i enjoyed myself with my friends allot.In french we say we had a high" JOIE DE VIVRE" in those days.

The conference has helped me in two ways first it gave some really memorable moments of a lifetym with my freinds.Second it has increased my propensity towards the Paper technology and i feel i can perseu a career in this particular field as a no. of finnish paper industries are trying to foray into india so there is a large scope in this field.
