A Memory that hurts my stomach! :)

Read the following in a Facebook post and nothing but one thought rushed to my mind when I read point seven - Sense of humor! And that thought, I shall never forget in my life!

* This is Student Life *
Definitions altered..:D
1- SPEED : Getting ready in 5 minutes
2- SHARING : Whole class copying one assignment but in totally different way
3- PRESENTATION SKILLS : Can present one answer in 5 different ways for 5 different questions :D
4- EDITING : Your report contains atleast 5 pages less than the person from whom you copied
5- MULTI TASKING: playing games on cell, sms to gf/bf, gossiping with seat mate, day dreaming, making teacher's sketch and still pretending that you are listening what teacher is saying.
6- ART : beautiful art on the last page of note book.
7- SENSE OF HUMOR : Provide best unintentional humour to teachers during Viva :D

8- CONSISTENCY : Once a Zero, always a Zero!
9- VOICE MODULATION : Attendence in 5 different voices.
10- STAMINA : Tolerating teacher for consecutive 1 hour :D
11- PERIPHERAL VISION: Staring at your crush, no matter where so ever he/she sits :D
12- HUMANITY : Failing and keeping the consistency of giving others a chance to top!:D
13- TALENT : Make whole class laugh no matter how tense is the situation.

Here it goes! Laugh till it hurts! :)

It was the first year at college. The nervousness of being a fresher, we all know it! Excitement mixed with expectations from the college, embarrassment from being ragged, anxiety in the labs, best of all - the one no one will ever forget is their first viva-voce!

Being computer science engineers, we had to take up practical examinations in electrical and electronics laboratory, the first semester along with some physics, chemistry and C programming.

It was D-day! The university exams were on! Day-1 - C Programming. Day - 2 Electronics/Electrical labs.

My dear mate as he had completed his implementation or rather wiring work at the electrical lab was summoned for viva voce!

After a couple of question on types of joints, the examiner tested my friend's knowledge at few of the basic laws.
Sadly, ( I feel sad for the examiner here...) his question was, "What's Ohm's law?"

Here's the conversation that followed! I am going to scribble it down in tamil just like how it happened, to give you the actual sense of it! :)

(E)xaminer: What's Ohm's law?
(S)tudent: V equals IR sir... ( with a sense of pride )

E: Adhu sari pa. Adhan enna? words'la sollu, I don't want just the formula.
S: Oh! OK sir! Voltage equals Current into Resistance.

E: Apdi illa pa. In proper scientific terms.
S: OK ok sir! It's Votage equals the product of Current and Resistance.

E: Haiyo apdi illa pa. I mean like.. 'Ohm's law states that... '
S: Sorry sir! Now I get it. Hmmm. 'Ohm's law states that, Voltage equals the product of Current and resistance'

The examiner... getting a little impatient..
E: Don't you get the point? Puriyudha illaya? Haven't you read the actual statement? How does it start? 'At constant temperature... '? School'a padikala?
S: Sorry sorry sir.. Now only I understand.. I'll tell it correctly this time. mmmm.. (And here he goes for the final time) 'Ohm's law statest that
E: Good!
S: Ohm's law states that, at constant temperature, voltage across a conductor equals the product of current and resistance'

(He he he!!! :D)

E: Thambi! Un peru enna? Endha dept?
S: (confused) CSE sir.

E: (In a pleading voice) Unaku idhu inimae theva illa dhan. Aana therinju vechiko.. Enna? ipdi'lam solla kudadhu!

(Confused. Honestly, not knowing why this was happening..! my mate comes out cool and narrates this to us and asks why the examier got confused!) :D :D
