Chapter 5 ends

How many times things go just the way you want them to happen? and how many times you have jury exactly the way you want it to happen? JURY the big day where all your semesters work is analysed in few minutes and if you have impatient panel then you have to jump on the final concept without showing the process you focused on..

"I don't want to have a serious tension filled jury. i want it to be eased out with people all around and everyone laughing and enjoying" I told Mr. Bharuch before my jury. I had made my presentation in the same way that if anyone reads them they'll have a smile at least on one of the many slides. but what if external is a serious guy who does not believe in humor and will have some totally negative way of looking at me? it was a chance i had to take as it was this sem or never. I had immense fun in this semester working. i wanted it to reflect in my jury. but it was a risk.
I took that risk.
made the fun presentations and had everything planned and all set. Mr. Minda had his jury before mine and he so nicely forgot to explain our mechanisms contraption of breaking the egg. after reminding him we went and explained it to them. Our model which our dean asked not to show in jury was something they liked. i sighed and i had a hope that my jury might go how i planned.

It started with "hello sir, am Rohan Saraf". "sorry whats your first name?" "ROHAN". "aah Rohan". ":D". then i said lets start with composites? they didn't say no. and JURY started. went on. and on and on. by the end everyone in the room, jury panel, External faculty(with some awesome sense of humor), me, all audience at back, all of them were laughing and i was jumping around. This is exactly how i wanted it to be. Was i dreaming? NO i wasn't. it was just what i wanted. I didn't care about grade. they got all the enthusiasm and energy i put in my work. i had a big smile on face and I cant wait for the 6TH sem to start now. i want it to start and i want to start working again. so i am going to do things that will keep me on track till sem 6 starts..

j for jury part 2, j for joke part 1
that is me last year same time before jury. After a night's work on pepper grinder and constant criticism from the faculty. working day and night trying to finish off the courses somehow.
This is me this time one week before the jury, with almost everything done not once but bout twice, with some sketches apart from assignment work and also most of the faculty has already seen my work this time. The scene is totally different. no matter who takes the jury its going to be almost similar. What more has changed is i can help people with the courses i faced problems with, yes we learn from mistakes. Jury is something everyone is scared of. when it is one week away people work, when the dates and panels are put up people work more and some crib. When juries are over everyone is happy. No, not because they did good but its off your head, the pressure is gone and yes you are in next semester. 5th sem is over for me(almost). what if they don't send me to next sem and ask me to repeat this semester again? Well its just a possibility. but somehow the probability of that possibility coming true is really low. so i can be happy. techno aesthetic detailing submission which was supposed to happen last week has been postponed yet more by one day minimum. when was the last time you wanned to give presentation and no one is ready to take it? I don't wanna complain so never mind. Rest is the same. working level has gone down as there is not much to do. So i sketch to kill time. It's not quite me but its true. big boss wont be that disappointed with me this time.

For fellow learners ill say, best of luck for your juries? work hard and wonders might happen.
