Exciting Plans

With about a week-and-a-half left for their tests to finish, and a month-long holiday after that, the students are making extensive plans for their vacation.

It’s been a hard semester for most — especially the final year students— and they say they can’t wait to finish off with their papers and have a good time.

Metrolife caught up with  a few to find out what plans they had for their time
off. Harishankar, a final year student, says that he’s dying for the exams to get over. But he also wants to score well in them.

“If my exams go well, I will be free of pressure and a big load will be off my shoulders. Exams will be over by December 22, and then all of us will be free till February,” he says.

With less than two weeks to go, he’s already started making plans for the vacation.
“Actually, I’ve always wanted to learn the guitar. Now that I have time, that’s one of my plans. I might take a trip as well; there’s a carnival going on in Kochi, and I’d like to go for that. I’ll probably be there for the New Year,” he explains.

Varun Soman, also a final year student, will be doubly pleased when his tests get over — since he’s had backlog this time around, he’s been putting in a lot of time to get all of his work done.

“I’m going to be really relieved when this is done — anyone would be,” he says, adding, “I have another five exams to finish. After they get over, I’ll be staying back in Bangalore for a week and then heading to Kerala, where I’m from, for a family function.”

He’s also planned out quite an innovative way to celebrate New Year. “One of my friends runs an NGO in a village in Kerala, and they have an event going on there. My friends and I will be spending New Year’s over there — it’ll be the first time any of us is celebrating it in a rural environment, so we’re looking forward to it,” he says.

Other students are planning on utilising their time off to get some constructive work done. Nikhil, another student of HKBK College of Engineering, says, “I’m really waiting for the exams to get over. I’ll be going to Kerala during my vacation and joining a course over there that will help me in my studies.”

However, that doesn’t mean he has no time for fun. “I’ll be heading to Goa for New Year, along with my friends. I also expect to spend about 10 days in the UAE, where my parents are based. That’s all I have planned,” he concludes.
