The odds of getting into a good college seem dicey... CATE had better go well

I hate TV! I hate almost every programme on TV and the handful of good ones can be downloaded from the internet. One saving grace for television is the IPL. Indeed, it’s commercial but it’s just what you need to stray your admission tension. Eco honors cut-offs too high? No problem, neither is Punjab’s score! Hate yourself for not scoring well enough? Now hate Balaji for giving KKR away! Confused about the new procedure? Ogle at Bangalore’s cheerleaders, they are far better looking than some DU counsellors and twice as helpful — well in a way!

Besides KKR’s knockout, I have to say the week’s been quite eventful; board results and the beginning of the DU admission grind. I made my way to North Campus this week for the Stephen’s and CATE forms. I have to mention how much I hate DD’s (demand drafts). God knows what people have against cash!

With this, I’ve taken my first step on the dark highway of opportunity called the University of Delhi. There aren’t enough bantawalas around and my odds of getting into a good college seem dicey. Fingers crossed, my CATE better go well!
