Alice in wonderland

I went to the Em Tech India 2010 held at Hotel ITC Royal Gardenia on Vittal Malya Road. I had no specific agenda. I went there because I held a complimentary pass and a very nice lady wrote me an email saying that she is pleased to have me as one of the "delegates" and had attached the program. The other time I was at such a conference I felt completely lost. Everyone around me was neck deep in technology space and most of them were innovators.

It was social studies that day and Chitti was scared. He learnt 20 questions by heart and went to school. The first question was about Himalayas. He had learnt that question better than the others. But suddenly his memory failed. He wrote the opening paragraph at the start of the page and the last point at the end. He sat there trying to recollect the rest of the nine points. He remembered none. He finished the rest of the questions, submitted and left. The week after, Gupta miss gave out papers. She had given him full five marks for the question. Chitti was bothered. He showed his paper to Gupta miss. She was about to cancel the marks but then said, “I will give you two marks. Thanks for being honest”. Chitti went home proud that day.
