       It has been a long time since I penned an article as this semester (3-2) being very hectic with many things to do. Although hectic, it is good to be busy. New things are getting added to my hectic schedule. ICC 2012 is one among them.

       For the benefit of readers I would like to explain what an ICC 2012 is. ICC 2012 is Inter Collegiate Conference which was held in CBIT from April 5th to 7th.  It was a model united nations where each delegate was given one country to represent.

       Well, even I was unaware of this kind of an event until a few days back when my friend Sahil Kaul has first told me about it. Later Manish also explained me a little about it. The moment they told me about it, I had decided to attend it. I got to represent the country Ecuador in that event which was my first mun and I received the call of allotment two days before the event. Soon I came to know about my country (Ecuador here: P) which is a very peaceful country. It has nothing related to the agenda of the council and so, I did not understand what to research. At last, I went to the mun with hardly any research.

      The day came and the moment I reached the registration desk I could see a few students holding laptops and discussing some articles no’s which was all Greek to me. I thought to myself that, “fuck! I didn’t prepare anything”. I consoled myself that they must be experienced munners. Soon the inauguration started. CBIT principal and faculty addressed the gathering. I can see the college management support to their students in encouraging innovative ideas and I was green with envy. :(

       The morning session started with chair enquiring about the first timers of mun. I could see considerable no of hands raised which made me feel better. I was nervous that I will be forced to speak and later I understood that no one will even give a damn about the country Ecuador. The actual villains Israel, Iran, Syria, Pakistan, DPRK were the most concerned countries to every one as they had to speak more because of their extraordinary activities. I observed the morning session carefully and decided to speak in the afternoon session. But given the no of delegates in the council and the burning issues that were being discussed I got a chance to speak at last. I gave a typical Gandhi kind of speech which received an unexpected reaction with every one supporting my views by hitting the wooden handle of chair. The speech I made for the first time in the council has raised my confidence level.

     My performance improved day by day. The second day had a surprise crisis. The sessions became so interested that I voted against for the motion to adjourn the session to go for the lunch although I was hungry. On day three we had to pass a resolution which was passed with Russian federation delegate Manish being so pissed off with the clause 3 of the resolution (I am talking about DISEC).

     Over all the MUN was fabulous with lights of elegant speakers like Zahaan Khan (DISEC) and Varun Munjuluri (CTC) which was like a double bonanza obtained for all of us when both DISEC and CTC were clubbed. Particularly the way Zahaan spoke, presented the Pakistan was a feast to watch and it is inexplicable.  I was very inspired and he made me understand the level to which we can gain general knowledge. ICC 2012 was a conference of brain storming, high class debating and proper organizing team.

    Finally, I would like to conclude this article by thanking CBIT organizing team for conducting this and introducing MUN culture to Hyderabad, every delegate who has attended. I would specially like to thank Sahil and Manish with out whom I would not have known about this event. Love you guys.

  Life is a lonely journey a person is ought to do but with an unknown destination which has to be explored and reached. The roads of life are rather smooth some times and rough in the tough times. Every thing happens in a jiffy in life. You never know what happens in the mere future. Life takes sudden turns at times.
     The year 2011 was one of its kind and it turned out to be one of the most fascinating and unforgettable years of my life. That was the year where my priorities have changed a lot causing a lot of transformations, many eye-opening incidents took place which strengthened my attitude, explored some hidden qualities of mine, unlearned quite a few things, got answers to a few questions which I always wondered, new things added to my list of hobbies, converted into a non-vegetarian which is an acquired taste and so on. 
     With my experience I figured out that life is a very bad master which teaches us a lesson out of pain. So, I decided not to give life many chances to teach and to avoid the pain started learning the lessons from others' lives and there by reviving my zeal to learn things which I lost after entering into B. Tech life. Sounds funny but it works. Subtle change in the thinking has created a huge difference there by reducing pain regarding certain aspects.
     There are a few things in which I lost interest like bursting the crackers and chatting in mobile phone which obviously made me stay away from them. The life without mobile is also better. It saves a lot of time :). Well, I am not going to die of radiation for sure: D. I was like a perfect Hyderabadi few months back who do not have the habit of getting up early in the morning, who don’t give a damn about what is going around the world, reading meant only the academic books before, articles meant only the ones of the grammar but now things have changed and I have turned over a new leaf. I got used to getting up early now because of my cat classes which was a nightmare before. I am elated at my adaptability. Novel reading, blogging aroused a new interest in me and they have become my new hobbies. I am having loads of fun reading novels and doing thought-provoking things like writing. In fact, reading and writing have improved my thought process to a greater extent, broadened the mindset like a horn antenna. I feel that reading and writing should be encouraged at school level which is missing in most of the schools.

         All in all, 2011 has brought many positive changes and made me wreath with smiles and creating even more excitement about 2012. There is a rumour that 2012 is going be the end of the world and there is a movie on that as well but I believe that it is just the new beginning. After all, life is all about living with a hope of having a better life in the future. Thanks to all my friends, family and every one who were part of my life in 2011 for making it a spectacular year with loads of memories to cherish.
