Bas ek baar Google mein job lag jaye
The Higher studies guy
This guy had planned about his higher studies even before his admission in Engineering itself. How to spot an MBA, M.E. or M.S. aspirant ? He stays cool whenever the teacher uses the ‘P’ word to raise concern among students. He may sit for the Placements but only for the offer letter and not the job.
Main nahi aa sakta yaar , CAT/GRE ka class hai mera

Your bestie, partner in crime and saviour a.k.a your bhai . He has a significant role in the completion of lot of your assignments (don’t ask me how) . Hard topics become easy to understand if bhai is explaining them. Pens, assignment sheets , stapler and pins , those extra marks in tests,proxies etc. are just few of the numerous things you owe him.
Bhai is love , bhai is life.
Tension mat le … bhai hai na tera
One or two weeks in college and you have made a good number of friends and acquaintances. But wait , this one guy managed to make like hundreds of them ! Reason – He is a hostelite .Living among the fellow hostelite juniors and seniors, the hostel waala is always updated about the happening s of the college. You expect him to go rampant as he is not under parental supervision . But soon you realize that there is a social construct and code of conduct among the hostelites .Legend says the digestive system of the hostel waala can adapt itself to eating instant noodles 7 days a week ,but he will never miss opportunity to eat ‘Ghar ka khaana’. Psst …Your tiffin is being watched.
Aaj tiffin mein kya laya ?

Second-hand books chahiye?
The Blue moon
This one guy in your class is rarely seen in the college . You think his life is a terrible mess but you can’t understand how this guy can still play it cool . The only memories you have of him are when he tried to attend a lecture and teacher scolded him, when he was asked to go to the Principal’s office and the day when his parents were called.
Bhai mera proxy lagayega?
This guy probably has more technical knowledge than the best teacher in college, he is perhaps the best coder out there , he is what the whole class calls pure Genius. The most shocking thing is none of it is in concord with the marks he gets in the exams.
For him the basic 9 to 5 job is a curse , he would rather like to do 24hrs of what he loves. He is well aware of the terms of the startup- world. He must have made a Steve jobs, Bil Gates , Rahul Yadav etc. reference on facebook at least once.
This syllabus is obsolete man !
