Thiagarajar College of Arts - Memories Back !

Way, way, way back :) in 1999, I stepped into college - Thiagarajar College of Arts, Madurai, where I did my Bachelors in Computer Science. As my elder brother KB too had done his graduation there I had no worries of ragging. I was introduced to my seniors through KB, from there I had good comfort feel that I can approach them for any problem.


Here goes all my memories which I still remember and cherish!


  • The tricks and moves we did to postpone a Math test

  • 2000 New Year celebration with small cake cutting ceremony

  • The day we were caught up by HOD for playing a game in class room.

  • The day when I was appreciated by a professor for my logical thinking in programming

  • The day when I was very late to enter the class (bcoz of rain, nambungaa…) and HOD was saying “ivlo nearm kalichu edhukku college ku varanum”

  • The day we went for a one day tour to Kodaikannal

  • Welcome Party celebration when we had been to watch a film and walked off in the mid due to problems with guys in theatre

  • The three days tour to Bangalore & Mysore - sariyana Galatta tour adhu. People next to our room complained to our professor for all the noise we made in nights :)..

  • Pongal celebration - college-ae kala kattum appo… guys will be in their Dhotties and gals in Sarees.. so colourful..

Extra bites:

->All the plans made to go to theatre - the instant calls made to parents to inform them on our film plans..


->same-same-sweet games.. - getting sweets from gals/guys if he/she wears same color dress as of mine, I treasure those chocolate wrappers still :)


->Getting a single set of parotta in canteen - keeping it in middle of the table for all the gals to put their hands..


->Theppakkulam Bus stop marathadi arattai..

:)


All I can say is we enjoyed the college life to the fullest!

Hi all...
I 2 studied in the same thiagarjar arts and science college during 2005-08 in B.Sc., industrial microbiology...
A lot of very funny and sad days in our college life..
One of my class mates played a game by naming some of our seniors in code words secretly and finally get caught in the hands of seniors and warned by them..
Welcome party...really superb as all of our class mates remained united 1ly in tat party...i was ragged 2 do 3 activities at d same time..
As already mentioned pongal celebration is 1 of d best celebration in our col. days...d col. itself looks like a mini village on tat day...we can roam anywhere...D staffs of tat Dept., will do pongal on tat day along with d students and they'll start supplying sugar canes to all d students..ouch..missing a lot those days..
same same pinch game if v wear same color dresses...
d tree where d friendship formed, bloomed....where we shared our sadness and joy...where v kid others especially those who r all speaking with their lovable ones without respecting us who'll be sitting nearby them..d steps where v ragged our juniors..d UV lab where v use 2 blackmail our friends by placing our hands in UV light switch when she is sincerely doing her projects ignoring us..taking as a challenge 2 escape from a particular sir/mam class...cheating attenders 4 breaking d glassware..nicely enjoying Tamil mams class by having a GD on the latest cine film...col. sports day-where we wont participate in any activities but will be present b there 2 get d snacks supplied by our management..following d way of escapism 2 escape from our guest lectures but v'll be d one who'll be coming first 2 hear tat lecture bcoz of our staffs....chatting with our friends in tepakulam in the late hours of col. by telling as special classes...and finally d sorrowful farewell party...
I'd mentioned 1ly those enjoyable days...Besides these there r also some moments which each and everyone of our classmates cant forget....
Really very nice days...joyful days gave us pleasure and surely d painful days gave us d experience 2 all of our friends..
Really missing my close friends a lot...I miss u my dear friends..
