Foot prints in the sands of time #4

By: Sradha Suman Mahapatra
After four whole years, they have now readied themselves up for a world new,
away from here. And when they walked down the memory lane with us, they shared the many bitter-sweet experiences they have had here. The memories, 'still afresh', they said, will always find a place in their hearts. Before we bid adieu, let's look at what they have to say !


  MAHESH PRASAD, Final year, CSE. Apart from being an ardent quizzer and a talented orator, he also is a lovely person.

SRADHAWhat is your best moment/ experience at CET ?
MAHESH: When I got the opportunity to host "Etcetra" for the first time. Plaban and I were awake till 3 am, preparing questions. It was a lot of fun. And the participation of people was overwhelming. There were 250 odd participants there. That was the most memorable day in CET. 

SRADHA: What is the worst/most embarrassing experience at CET ?   

MAHESH: The very first day in CET! I was shouting at someone in the hostel corridor and suddenly bumped against Biswajit Sir. He just told that I was the worst boy he had seen in his 8 years of career in CET.

SRADHA: Plans after CET ?

MAHESH:  MBA.. Actually, I haven't got anything planned yet. :P

SRADHA: Message for your juniors ?

MAHESH: CET is a good place for developing yourself. You will also get a lot of time to prepare for competitives. Enjoy your days in CET. 



SUSANTH PANDA, Final year, EE. He is an extremely friendly senior, the one you can always resort to for help.

SRADHAWhat is your best moment/ experience at CET ?

SUSANTH: Starting from first-year-ragging. It was an entirely new experience for me. We had to put on formals late at night, after midnight mostly and were made to stand in front of the hostel gate facing the seniors. Our legs shook with fear and anxiety, but seriously we have learnt a lot from those awkward encounters. Those things helped me a lot in becoming a more matured person.Our seniors and our batch share a very strong bond because of that and my roomies - Amrit( Mota ), Richesh( Nona ), Susanth Rath, Sandeep( Phulei ), Padma, Palo - sabu 4th year hau hau bhuligale; But first year baht masti karichi semananka sangare. Unique personalities! 

Tapare 2nd yr! Sabu gote gote mundi thilu ! Everyone had only one notion in their mind,"Ragging khaichu mane ragging karibu". And in the process, I had encountered a DC, which was only one such experience. 3rd yr hau hau sabu super seniors! New friends, new experiences! we used 2 visit kailash regularly through waterways nd airways. Ragging didn't interest anymore. I had a group of friends especially Biswa, P.B.R, Sanjit( Don ) who used to pull my legs infront of one girl. Baht khichai karichanti mora. We used to troll and tease each other. Each and every friend I made during this time is special to me; I have many memories to carry with me. Then came the final year! The most special moment was when I got placed. The joy I experienced can't be explained. You will understand when u go through the same phase. I am enjoying my last moments at C.E.T with my friends - [ Lord ] Sidharth Pal, Ronak [ Baba ] and my juniors.


SRADHAWhat is the worst/most embarrassing experience at CET ? 
SUSANTH: Formally, the most embrassing moment I experienced at C.E.T was during the Disciplinary Commitee. But informally, there wer many embrassing moments in the hostel. One was when I had to sleep with a dog. Thank to Biswa who carried me back to my room. And then there is one more, which all the juniors are aware of and for that, I was awarded Mr.Broad Award !

Will miss you all.


SACHIN KHANDELWAL, Final year, Civil. An extremely vibrant person. He recently pleased us all with his performance in NUKKAD NATAK, this XTASY-2K14, where he was one of the script writers too. Among his many talents, singing is one and he has also successfully tried his hands at composing.

SRADHA: What is your best moment/ experience at CET ?
SACHIN: My best experience was, when I performed ‘NUKKAD NATAK’ in CET for the first time with my friends. Now we have a well-known DRAMATICS society “AMUZA”. I hope events like NUKKAD NATAK, REFLEX, and STAGE PLAYS thrive in the coming years.

SRADHA: What is the worst/most embarrassing experience at CET ?
SACHIN: I am glad that there is no such experience which can be said as the worst one. Ups and downs are always there in life.  Moreover whatever bad things happened to me at CET, I took it as a learning step and that experience helped me to proceed in life.

SRADHA: Plans after CET ?
SACHIN: To prepare for government services along with the job I am placed in.

SRADHA: Message for your juniors ?
SACHIN: Just go and be free to excel yourself in whichever field you like. It is very important to be yourself. So wherever you go, whatever you do, just be dedicated to that work completely. Always try to rectify and improve yourselves from your mistakes. Most important thing is keep enjoying in your life whichever phase you go through.

SRADHA: What is the worst/most embarrassing experience at CET ?

SRADHA: What are your plans after CET ?
AMRIT: Life after CET is unpredictable. I will miss each and every moment that I have spent with my friends and juniors. After the life at CET Hostel, one can manage everything when he moves to new places.

SRADHA: Message for your juniors ?
AMRIT: Speak from your heart to achieve your goals. If you demand something from CET, don't ask for it; just choose the right person who can do it for you.

For Pre-Final year students, each and every one should contribute something for CET, you will feel really great when you all will make your way into 2015. Your achievements will count and will make CET proud. And finally, I thank all the secretaries, core members, X-Swats and my lovely juniors for their support during XTASY 2k14. One more thing ! I love you all.
