Are they fucking nuts?

My niece in Bombay begins a new chapter in her life. She was recently admitted to an engineering college.

There was the minor problem of 944 mm of rain last Tuesday, and life in general achieved haywireosity pretty quick. As luck would have it, the deadlines for paying up the fees for these colleges was today (i.e., July 31.) So my niece and her mother braved the elements to reach the engineering college so as not to miss the deadline. Thankfully, they made it to the college and back safely.

But seriously, have the folks on the admission panel in these institutes gone completely cuckoo? There is water-logging on the streets, floating animal carcasses, grounded traffic and other hazards. Can't they postpone the admissions process by a few more weeks?

(If they have already moved the deadlines, I do take my words back.)

I agree!
My kid sister's classmate in Pune was chucked out of the hostel for flunking her year.. Which is fine if the damn college has vague rules. But they're insisting it has to be NOW. In the middle of monsoon mayhem. Blithering Idiots.

Your site km, I found to be very interesting. When I was searching for 18990 yours was the most eyecatching. While working on my site 18990 I have been seeking ways to make it better and found yours to be helpful. Thanks!
