“If I need a cause for celebration
Or a comfort I can use to ease my mind
I rely on my imagination
And I dream of an imaginary time.”
That imaginary time has become real …
When everything's been said and done....
When words run out ... and so does your ability to invent new ones to suit the moment
To honor it ... to savor it
What do you say ... it’s not the first time that I have been in this situation
That night u guys asked for one line ... well keeda never speaks a single line ... and again well as i said I just write my blog
So, what do I say about such an astonishing fest and such a great group of people ... well for one ... it was more than about just a fest ... more than about 546 teams and 1500 participants ....more than about 2 odd lakhs spent on it ... more than 4 dog tiring days and nights ... much much more than that.
It was about self belief ... it was about a dream ... a dream come true in much bigger proportions ... it was about the look ... look on the faces and the look in the yes ... look on the faces , the first two days ... the look of feeling and triumph on a HUGGGGE turnout ... juxtaposed with a feeling of eeriness questioning if we are prepared for it ... and then the look on the faces giving way to the look in the eyes on the last 2 days because the face is too tired to emote ... eyes filled with hunger and sleeplessness , and enjoying every moment of it ... it was about everything and nothing at the same time.
For some it was their first taste of ROBOTIX, and I am absolutely sure their palates would be itching for more. Fore some, sadly, it was their last. When all numbers and figures and statistics have faded away, our success can only be measured by their happiness. I wish, we have given them a reason to smile.
We are all enjoying the state of languor in which we find ourselves now. But this hangover has to be broken. To strive for more, to strive for even larger success ... Not just in numbers, but in a pursuit towards the shimmering deceiving land called perfection. We have to raise ourselves higher for a brighter tomorrow. A tomorrow of which we as a team will be proud of – a tomorrow of which people like Reddy, Golu and Choubey will be proud of. This is our moment in the sun. Here's wishing that this sun will shine much brighter for years to come. Cheers to us.

creeping within, the throb of excitement still persisting , thanx to the blog!!!
It was my first, but i crave for much
more larger than life & more ecstatic than reality!!! YO ROBOTIX!!

I m proud to say tht Robotix is from my insti.
Sneha told me about the post and inspite of having a test five hours later i decided to read it, not once but several times; each time feeling a new aura gathering around me....a new emotion creeping within...a longing to walk back in time and relive those moments treasuring them for ever....and i think all was worth it!! Cheers to the whole team!!!
Great post, Ritwik!!
And to apurva, isn't it true you did feel sleepy a lot more than everyone else..[:)]??
Well i must say ... this was one of the best dayz i had ... thanx a lot team for putting in efforts ... but hats off to Golu, TD, PB and Hema ... jinke bina i would have collapsed ... they were the pillars of support ... Also round of applause for KT nd Sarkar for easing away with MM codes without any probs ... PB nd Akash for jigsaw ... Aamir for his grids ... waise i was really happy that there was a winner ... i always wondered whether there would be any robot which will satisfy aamir ... but then we had three ... Kudos to Prerit and Hugs for Anshu and Deeps for putting so much pain and hard work in putiing one of the most acurate tracks ever cut by anyone ... Thnx a lot Apurv, Bhaddu and Guru for looking after my events and completing the rounds within specified time without much chaos ... gr8 job done ...ReplyDelete

If it was Reddy who was responsible for the initial breakthrough 2 years back, you guys are the ones who've not only lived up to the expectations, but done infinitely more than what could've been humanly thought.. Cheers to all of the guys!ReplyDelete
I must say - after 3 years with Robotix (plus last yr that I missed the final event, while I was away to a conference), I was a tad selfish to enjoy Kshitij for once.. The passion that the present team shares is unmatched.. I'm 100% certain that Robotix is in not just safe, but wonderful hands! :-)
i dont think thr was any bttr way of expressing how we felt abt these 4 days and all the work tht has gone behind it. is blog ke liye tere keede ka size reset hota hai :). on a more serious note, reading dis blog just made me feel as i felt just after the quarter finals...i just cant describe it....i can just say.....WE DID IT!!!! I have no more words....just...YO ROBOTIX!!!
Well ... honestly i didnt expect that this piece would be received so warmly ... well i started writing on monday and had to stop in the middle due to some reason ... when i completed it ... well i hardly knew what i had written ... things just flowed ... I mean i cant put my finger on the reason but this year was special ...ReplyDelete
Thanks to each and everyone for you wonderful comments. It has mad me feel on the TOP OF THE WORLD ...
on a different note ... i had almost lost this flair for writing anyting ... maybe this will make me start all over again
abt ur sleep ... it just goes to shoe ur great time management ... all the time utilized ... and i saw the SC Videos today .. u DID rock
well you should have a blog of your own ... thanks for the wonderful words .. and surely ur craving for more will be fulfilled
you hit the nail rite on the head .. this is what the blog was supposed to do ... bring a smile on people's faces ... glad to have done that
Your comment is a special one man .. the first and the only non member till now ... plus u seem to read all my blogs ... i mean esp for you THNAKS is too small a word .. wait till i invent a new one
You and me are only justa aprt ... i write blogs 5 hour before the test ... you read them ... and YES we wil take a much grander walk next time around
man what a comment ... the longest yet totally sincere ... seriosly we had some team this time ... and you saved up an extra special for me in the end ... always great working with you
Well mentioning us in the same sentence as Reddy ... I personally cudnt have asked for more ... Thaks a lot
Well ... we are Yo _pUnTers_ yaar ...btw mera resret ho ke kitna hua?? Next year ... man ... next year
You of corse understand and appreciate friend that i ve exactly as much to do with the Robotix stuff as much an infant has to do with booze or a 40-year old with cerelac.....but the avid-follower-of-ur-blog that I am, must say its wonderful. u make it look very realistic which is pretty difficult at times........Mango Rox!!!!ReplyDelete
good 1...and as for ur flair of writing...dont worry; as long as i am around to coach you, that will never be a problem :DReplyDelete
