And that gave a thrilling turn to the whole series of events unfolding the next month. Everything took shape in a few days..First,the auditions for the models...Second thinking the themes for the rounds..Third ,deciding of funds ...Fourth..We found a designer in a design college in Bhopal who was really good at his job..All seemed perfectly on time..perfectly in shape..Suddenly our college goes on strike...We get holidays for 15 days..And exams get postponed..Everything ruined..Exams were scheduled till the 22nd and moodi to be started from the 20th....Everything was in a perfect mess..Most of the models backed out..No idea of where funds were going to be collected..No boutique agreed to sponsor our show. And we had exams at the same time..So the few people still trying to hold the plank had also studies to finish...Now the phrase "Being in a pickle " perfectly fits.. And then suddenly..one day the organizer of moodi calls and says we are in the top 8 teams of the show.I didnt know whether to laugh or cry, mourn or make merry..There was a time when i was practically approaching every female in my hostel ,asking her whether she was interested to come to Mumbai..I detested the feeling of feeling like a saleswoman. We were everything...Perfect multi tasking..Right from salesmen and saleswomen,technicians,designers,magazine buyers and borrowers..thermocol beggars in the girls hostel at 12 at night,porters to lift garments...to models ourselves even without the god gift of height...Just to fill up the gap that no one wanted to.. It was really weird considering that people were actually kicking the opportunity that came till their doorstep..Or more...begged them to be grabbed...After many days of constant pressure..both from exams side as well as the fact that after getting selected we couldnt back out..things started finally taking shape..We made the count till 10 models and work began.. Then after constant pressure from the designers and managers of the show..We finally ended up going to moodi with complete dress..But zero choreography..Things finally took shape in mumbai as all we did for the first two days was to teach all the models to walk the ramp right.See i know im a last-minute person....But this was like the last second before you were going to fall off a cliff..
So finally the D day came...We started getting dressed...The music piece was getting prepared right then..Ya i know ..i told you right..Last second preparations. Anwyay we were dressed to see that other colleges were much more prepared than us..They had a lot of things...Greater investments...Better models....Greater preparations...We still were soo confident.........no one was disheartened yet...The round 1 started and was not bad....Round 2 was a little disaster as the music piece got over before the entire walk was over........Overall the whole thing was not bad...Maybe if the whole exam postponing thing hadnt happened........We were sure to rock the stage..Few things I learnt..
a)Make music first...Only then focus on the garments.
b)More is less....Even the tackiest of make up doesnt show enough on stage.
c)Concentrate on choreography first and not garment detailing.
d)Accessories are the highlight of any garment..Not the garment itself..
e)In a team..One person should never be responsible for garment construction and choreography..It creates a pickle..
But entirely the experience was worth it..You know when i walked the ramp in the first round..And the bright lights and camera clicks on my face......And about 8000 to 10000 people sitting right in front of me...looking at me closely, and focussing on every detail.I just felt that the entire experience was more than worth it>.And i just felt soo proud when i walked it up.......It was a performance of a lifetime..Who knows..whether we will even try for Adaa ever again.Or will we ever even get selected again...MOODI wil come only once more in my college life.All i know was...that I FELT PROUD!!!

Whenever a friend is in trouble, the first name that comes to mind is 'Priya". She will go to any length to solve it. She often keeps her mom busy too. The in Bhopal know they have a savior in her. She picks up the sick ones and sneaks them into her hostel, without the warden's knowledge. With her care, and help from friends, the sick animal recovers, and is placed back from where it came. She has asked me to use the KV....MAA forum to request the Mighties to adopt a sick animal each and give them a home. She is a Maa herself to these mute and cute beings.
Leadership is something that comes naturally to her. She is always in command of any situation and is called a 'Lovable Leader'
Priya is an epitome of elegance and grace,confidence and talent, innocence and cheer. She dances like a swan. If you happen to be anywhere near her college and hear the sound of several footsteps, you can be sure the lil girl is making a large group of students, double her size, dance to her (tune) every move and step. She has succeeded in converting the most shy and awkward friend into a reasonably good dancer. Every choreography of hers is a masterpiece in itself. At the age of three, she once tried to convince a dance instructor that she was seven, when the lady told us that that was the qualifying age to start dance lessons.
The enthu of people around her is to be seen to be believed. At home whenever there is a crisis, I don't know how she manages to turn up on time. The moment the crisis is over, she too is gone...........to her celebration................of life.
This lil nurturer is filled with supreme confidence in herself and confidence in others. She is able to see the best in people. She has proved the saying 'great things come in small packages'.
Priya is a bundle of joy, energy and talent. You can write a never-ending book on her. She is food for thought, a balm to your soul and a smile for your lips. She reminds you of Lisa of the Simpson's fame and Sania Mirza of the Tennis fame. Keats rightly said, 'a thing of beauty, a joy forever' !!
"This is the ideal place where this should be...I love you mom..More than anything else in this whole wide world..Thanks for this beautiful gift..."

I just talked to Mohit Chauhan on the phoneee.....
Godd....It was unbelievable .Basically,our senior Ozzy and his band called Pintight was to perform in Indore today ,the 9th November along with Mohit Chauhan.And all these guys Ashir,varun and obviously the band is sitting in indore right now. And even ashir knows howw mad i am for mohit chauhan. So ashir asked mohit chauhan to give an autograph specially for me..Then ashir called me ..He said that he had been talking to mohit all day...AAH!!God how stupid was I not to go to Indore,,exams and all.GOD!!!Anyway he asked me whether he wanted me to talk to mohit or not......I was soo nervous at first.But till then ashir hung up saying the show is about to begin,so mohit wont be able to talk right now..So he will talk later..I was really disheartened.But he called again after a minute and asked me to run to a place of good connectivity,BECAUSE THE NEXT FEW MINUTES WERE GOING TO BE MY DREAM COME TRUE..I ran outside.......It was 9.41 pm sharp..And suddenly a familiar voice said something from the other side..He said "Hello Priya"......And my heart just new no bounds.. It was the same voice that i heard 24*7 ..Everytime i heard a song was mostly of mohit chauhan's. And the same voice was actually talking to me..I was just soooo nervous.....I mean.....It was MOHIT CHAUHAN i was talking to..>I started stammering and asked whether this is "MOHIT CHAUHAN".>ANd he said "Ya this is mohit speaking".....
Then he asked me "Ive heard you are studying for your exams .."
My heart fluttered even more "Ya.YOu have no idea what a big fan i am of your songs...right from dooba to kuch khaas,Ive never missed a single song of yours"
And he went "Really.....Oh thank you so much.Im glad you like my songs so much ."
ANd i just went on screaming without letting him talk.I mean..Normally when im really nervous and happy at the same time,i try to hide it by talking more and more.
Unfortunately he had his show starting and he had to leave .
So he said "Hey Priya,ill talk to you later.My show is about to begin,but anyway all the best for your exams"...
I seriously felt like telling him i love him.But i thought it would look like a total mad fan(which i didnt want myself to be potrayed as,but ended up doing the same).
I wished him good luck for the show,..And that was the end of this fabulous experience.
I was literally jumping in the courtyard for five minutes,not able to believe i talked to my favourite singer,someone whom i always said has something in his voice.....which i am truly in love with.
I wish i could have got to talk to him more...and listen to the same voice....That i hear all the time..

We had dinner at Hong Kong Chinese. Was laughing madly at Amar's jokes. And I seriously realised something.That people who you feel are the most bindaas and happy go lucky in general,are infact the most sentimental people around.The perfect example being Amar...
And I think emotions play the most vital part in a man's life.
So people should not play with them.

Your EQ is 127
You usually have it going on emotionally, but roadblocks tend to land you on your butt.
On an average day, you're quite happy, together, and content. You live your life well.
Your emotions aren't always stable, but you can go along with the ups and downs pretty well.
You tend to be motivated, energetic, focused, and level headed.
You see the world pretty rationally, and you don't tend to over dramatize things. When things are bad, you know they eventually have to get better.
I know that day will come one day in my life..But when?
As known by all,Gujarat is making tremendous progress by leaps and bounds and heading towards one of the most develop countries by the year 2010.This holy year has been a deadlines for most states of India,or rather for the word.!!This blog of mine is prepared to give you a lot of useful information about my vibrant and culturally rich state Gujarat..Inspite of being able to withstand the scrutiny faced by our present chief minister Narendra Modi during elections,he and our administration has proudly succeeded in living upto the expectations of the state,or maybe more than that!!
Talking of safety,Gujarat is one place which is very safe for women.Women can roam around till 12 at night without worrying much. Education wise we have good number of institutes in Gandhinagar and Ahmedabad itself.Institutions such as DA-IICT,NIFT,NID, and upcoming IIT stand to the stature of the state. Not to forget a lot of other colleges such as MS university Baroda,Gujarat University Ahmedabad and NIT Surat ,which comes amongst the good NITs of our country.
Since 2002,Gujarat has seen an exponential progress in terms of administration, infrastructure, technology,education and welfare of the gujaratis.!!With the huge success of the Narmada project,Gujarat,inspite of not being blessed with too much rainfall,has never had problems where household water is concerned.Gandhinagar,the capital city of Gujarat sees its beautiful and lush green city with impeccable roads comparable to the roads of the most developed countries of India. Also,in 2007 ,Gujarat came up with a new concept of gas pipelines instead of hassle causing LPG cylinders.It was probably the first state in India to come up with a concept like that.It is also one of the few cities in India which receives the least power cut offs (maybe once in six months or something) unlike cities which have power failures most of the time.As it is ,gujarat is a perfect place to be ,especially for single working women where safety matters are concerned. With fun loving and warm hearted gujaratis in town,it becomes a large home for one to live in.
Recently Gujarat has come up with this new concept called Wi-Max.It is basically Wi-Fi,but in the entire city. Gandhinagar and Ahmedabad are two cities which have been proposed to be made Wi-Max by December 2008. That means instead of getting a broadband ,one could get the same speed(maybe more) through Wi-Max without the hassle of wires.Gujarat will be the first of this kind in India.
Also another revolution that will totally change the way of living for most people is 24*7 water supply. Normally people receive drinking water twice a day which they save up in tanks. This supply of waterwill put the tank manufacturing companies in Gujarat out of business. There would be absolutely no need of storing water anymore.
And finally,as everyone knows the Nano project happening in Gujarat.. There is no field which is left to be achieved by Gujarat.
Such is the revolution created by the administration of Gujarat.Probably in the next few years ,it will come upto the levels of USA!!Go Gujarat!!!!

1)You remember events of life,in the forms of happiness ,sadness and intellect longer. Try to remember,when you were small and used to getup for school everyday,dont you think that inspite of soo many years you still remember those moments more than the moment exactly a year before ,when you were in college,struggling hard to get up from bed?
2)It makes your day longer and makes you realise how special each moment is. You must have heard youself say this often:"I didnt realise where the day just passed". Time to take a review of your sleep habits.
3)Keeps brain more alert during the day. So lesser studying and more remembering of syllabus.
4)Keeps your metabolism high. Now one might ask how. See,only when you get up early will you succeed in having the most important meal of the day: The breakfast. And this meal helps to increase metabolism in the body. So you'll live longer,will stay fit,and not get fat and not know the reason.
Keep this points in mind and please dont forget to read this self help book, who knows your views about these books might just change.

Yesterday we found this absolutely cute kitten in our courtyard. It was black and patches of white.The best part was that it was not scared of anyone..It came near to my leg and started purring .I picked it up and brought it to my room,gave it milk made out of milk powder .After that it went off to sleep.Today morning,she randomly went to everyone's rooms looking for food.Shilpi took care for it the other half of the time when I wasn't.In the afternoon it jumped on my bed and slept for around three hours. I have a picture of her. I have named it 'Pamper'.

Mood-Indigo ,popularly known as Mood-I is the biggest cultural festival in Asia. It is conducted every year during the end of December by the Indian Institute of Technology,Bombay. This year it will be my second time to this festival. Last year was marvelous,gave me the best ideas as to what to do in our college. Mood-I had a lot of group events, especially of 10-12 people.Things like group dance,UV light dance,street play,situational acting etc was a big part of the festival. This year I decided that we could go as a college group and perform at various Mood-I events. Hope to see active participation of MANITians in the formation of group that would go to Mood-I 2008. The dates have been scheduled from 20-23rd December 2008..
Hoping for a trophy!!

Ripple is an annual event organized by Drishtant,the literary society in our college. And the reason why the event is so popular is not only because of the event itself,it is also because of what Drishtant is,and what it taught us in life. It taught us to work like a team,like a family ,and work together for a cause . And Ripple will help us come closer .
I have completed 50% of my undergrad education,and I would be gone from here in the next two years..or rather next one and a half years. And I would'nt be with the college anymore,busy in my job or further studies. But the things that will remain are the memories....
I read in one of th self help books that one should always learn to do that that they fear the most.
If one fears the heights,go bungee jumping.
If one fears the darkness,close yourself in a room for sometime.
If you fear the stage,promise yourself you will speak in public the next time an event in class or your college comes up.
If you fear relationships,get into one.
If you fear falling in love,fall into it and get up.
Fight your worst fears till you've fought and won.
Promise yourself that you would try this the next time you face challenges in your life.

I know this one is going to be skipped by most of you who laze in your chair surfing the net (reading blogs) ,but this one is for you guys the most. Today's world has totally forgotten the importance of staying fit and staying healthy. Year after year, more and more diseases have been coming up and inflicting people with its virus,most of which is because of obesity. One of the most dreadful disease that it is in itself, it is also the main cause of bringing other diseases along with it, major cause of which is reduction of immunity levels in the body. There is a reason why gyms and swimming pools are flooded (literally) with people .
There is a percent of people who understand the grave need of staying fit and not increasing the probability of hitting diseases at an earlier age, but good and bad always go hand in hand,because of which the number of ignorant souls have increased with the same leaps and bounds. I decided to write this blog to create awareness and tips of how you can make little changes in your daily life and stay fitter,stay healthy.
1)Remember,you are what your genetic make-up is made up of. So there may be a few things you might not be changed. But research shows that with regular exercise you can change upto 70% of the diseases that could otherwise have been passed on by your ancestors.
2)Weight of people with the same height can differ because of their difference in bone density.A better and much effective way to check whether your weight is under control or not is BMI (Body Mass Index).
Calculation of BMI is as follows:
Its formula is Weight/(Height in meters)^2 (In SI Units)
|Category||BMI range - kg/m2||BMI Prime||Mass of a 1.8 metres (5 ft 11 in) person with this BMI|
|Severely underweight||less than 16.5||less than 0.60||under 53.5 kilograms (8.42 st/118 lb)|
|Underweight||from 16.5 to 18.5||from 0.6 to 0.74||from 53.5 and 60 kilograms (8.42 and 9.45 st/118 and 132 lb)|
|Normal||from 18.5 to 25||from 0.74 to 1.0||from 60 and 81 kilograms (9.4 and 13 st/130 and 180 lb)|
|Overweight||from 25 to 30||from 1.0 to 1.2||from 81 and 97 kilograms (12.8 and 15.3 st/180 and 210 lb)|
|Obese Class I||from 30 to 35||from 1.2 to 1.4||from 97 and 113 kilograms (15.3 and 17.8 st/210 and 250 lb)|
|Obese Class II||from 35 to 40||from 1.4 to 1.6||from 113 and 130 kilograms (17.8 and 20.5 st/250 and 290 lb)|
|Obese Class III||above 40||above 1.6||above 130 kilograms (20 st/290 lb)|
3)Physical exercise is not done only for improving physical appearance ,but also for improving your stamina. Test for Stamina: CAN YOU CLIMB TEN FLOORS OF A BUILDING AND STILL NOT BE TIRED? If you can do that,then you are going the right way towards a fit life. But if not,then your lifestyle needs serious changes.
4)A lot of people (students specially) thinks its uncool to think of physical fitness and taking care of your health.
MYTH 1: College students are still young and have a high rate of metabolism.
FACT 1: College students are the ones who want to look the best.
Its time people to take a quick look at yourself and see whether you can be considered a fit person or not.
If you're among the 90% students of your college who do not care about physical fitness (In your language :I dont "wanna" care).. Take a good look at yourself and think.!!!
(Coming up with tips in my next blog)

PS-I might also come up with a few resolutions to fulfill by the end of the year (or life's resolutions)...(This is psychology that if you announce to the world,it becomes a matter of self esteem to fulfill it.)

Many things have been happening that made me believe in the fact that things can be going well for a lot of people without even realizing.
a)I ruined my digital camera completely,scratches all over and the lens went out of focus.I really surrendered thinking Ill have to buy a new camera. And just look at my luck .I ended up getting an absolutely new camera for free.Apparently the camera was under warranty and repairing it would have been costlier than getting a new one.I couldn't have been happier.Seriously.
b)Me and my roomies got an AIRTEL internet connection and a 5 port switch. Now it seems we bought a very low quality switch which people said works like a hub (god knows how such a thing is possible however cheap a switch is..). We did every possible thing to get three laptops connected to one airtel connection....Considering we are not such experts in connection ,we called upon a technician to help us.And turns out we knew more than him.Then one night me and Urvi (the cutest roomie anyone could ever have..) sat and started experimenting with the settings .We were determined to start the connection that day itself. And Lo!!! Persistence paid.. Oh by the way,which is another philosophy I truly believe in. Everything started working that day. You might not realized the extent of my happiness ,but live in a room for two years with a laptop but no connection and you'll realize. Except for cut wires and LAN clips scattered in my room ,my happiness knew no bounds.
c)Me and my batch decided to go for a trip to Sanchi and Raisen fort in Bhopal,India (Hello.. which again was decided after we thought of big plans which got canceled ). Now one day before the trip date was decided ,I and Indu (another cutie pie of my batch) drove my twelve year old kinetic till old Bhopal (which is one of the toughest bumper car races one can have) and finally reached the travel agent.Talking to him we got the bad news that the RTO office was closed that day and the buses needed a permit to go to any of these tourist destinations. I was really really disappointed considering that I had made up my mind to mange this trip well and make it a success. Now here the convincing part played an important role. We asked the agent to do anything he could to get us the bus for the next day .After like millions of years of convincing he finally said he was prepared to take the risk . And Lo .!! again our work was done. Now the next task was to contact resort to get buffet system ready for the girls. Wait the job is not done yet !! No one in my college seemed to be having the phone number of the resort where we needed food from. Now technology swooped its way into its importance this time. Unexpectedly the phone number of that resort was available on the internet (don't raise eyebrows because it wasn't such a famous resort )..Talks were done and everything was perfectly planned . And for the record,the trip was fabulous..It couldn't have been better. Oh ya not to forget mentioning, there were a few stalkers in Raisen fort who got a really good verbal thrashing from us thirty six girls...It was like a nice release of emotions.Felt really good btw.. (ya ya I know that you must be thinking what a feminist I am..Well I'm proud of it).
d)We played housie (or tambola as some call it) during the trip.. Now my luck in games is like a donkey's luck in singing . And I won two prizes during the game.Me ,Indu and Nupur were in one team. It was so good.Seriously.
e)My mobile phone got soaked in a polythene bag where I had kept it from protection incase it rained .What I didn't see was whether the polythene was dry or not .And to my luck it wasn't .(Lol ..look at the irony)..My phone was soaked in about 50 ml of water for four hours and I had no clue about it.And after I came home and saw a thick layer of moisture on my screen ..I knew it was time to buy a new cellphone)..I dried the phone besides my laptop exhaust hoping that it might just start, and fate startled me by getting the phone started..Good news ,I don't have to buy a new phone now. Bad news ,Oh yes I don't have a camera mobile,my cellphone costs Rs.2800 and I'm really proud of it.I don't plan to change it till it cracks into two pieces or water succeeds in making its way again and choking it!!!
And now I suddenly realized that there were so many things that made me happy, and most of it might be insignificant to you . But these little things made me realize that luck can favor us in small ways without making us realize. And trust me,if you start keeping count of how many things made you happy in a day (with a positive mind, of course) you'll realize you are the luckiest person in the whole world!!!!

As is always said " There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.".
Do you ever look at puppies and get emotional to the core?Does your maternal (and paternal) instincts awaken looking at these adorable cuddly babies?Do you ever look at these cute little toy-like creatures and wonder why God didn't give them the love they actually deserve?Did you ever look into their innocent eyes and get pinched thinking of the fact that a lot of these puppies do no have a proper home to live, or proper food to eat??
Everyone loves human babies. And everyone dreams of holding their own baby in their hands some day. Similarly,a lot of people are animal lovers and love them like their babies ,and to be specific,DOG LOVERS. Dogs are miracles with paws. But unfortunately not many are able to do anything for them.
Is it because of lack of initiative,or because of apprehension or just the thought of taking up so much hassle?
I was just going through a community on Orkut about animal lovers in my city.To my utter surprise I saw a lot of people having found stray homeless puppies.They had kept it in their houses and asking people who wished to adopt them.And it was shocking to see that it had been more than three months to the post submitted and not one person contacted to offer adopting the puppy. Is it that people don't login through Orkut (the most popular social networking site in India) often enough to see the post submitted by those people,or is it their lethargy that stops their stiff fingers to type into the post,or is it that they just don't care about pets??If it is the first two ,it is not their fault.But if it is the latter,then the matter needs looking into.
A few months ago I saw this video of puppies in IIM Ahmedabad. The students out there were posting to all different pet forums as possible ,and asking people to adopt pets .They even went to the extreme of vaccinating each one of them and deworming them as well.
In spite of so many people willing to do something for the puppies,Why are so many puppies still homeless?
There can be countless number of reasons but that does not count.What counts is the end ,where
dogs need to be happy. Remember, when aspiring students like you all take a job and are responsible enough for another living being, please take initiative and do something for the pets. Even if due to circumstances you cannot keep pets in your home,at least try in some way or the other to help them.They need our support and they have equal right to live in this world as much as we do.Im truly inspired by the students of IIM Ahmedabad who took care of the puppies and now they have happy homes to live in.
And for the citizens who can afford to keep pets in your house,...Next time you see a stray puppy or a post in your forum ,please take a step from your life and adopt a puppy. I bet no animal owner would have ever regretted keeping a pet at home. They never talk about themselves but listen to you while you talk about yourself, and keep up an appearance of being interested in the conversation.
Have a pet at home and you'll always be happy.Because they always give you unconditional love.And also because you know that the pet is someone who will never leave you till the end.

A positive opinion would be that they want women to be protected and well taken care of.But seriously,any woman,let it be your wife or girlfriend,mother or sister or your best friend,ask anyone and they will tell you that for them begin treated as equal and a "TOUGHIE" gives them greater happiness than being treated like a delicate princess. Although even the treatment of "Delicate Princess" is rarely observed (pun intended).I,being a woman myself have seen a lot of things that happen when Male chauvinists are around us. They can never sit behind a woman on a two-wheeler.. Let me ask you, HOW MANY OF YOU DON'T MIND SITTING BEHIND A WOMAN ON A TWO WHEELER?
They hate women who are more powerful than them.And seriously,they hate them with a vengeance.. Every time the woman does something,the male ego bursts like a balloon.Gritting their teeth hard,they always need a reason to get back at the women who succeed in being more powerful than them..I agree women cant pick up hockey sticks and start physically bashing up people, or they cant even be very tough at fighting, but why pick up fights with them just for one's personal grudges of power-play?
I don't say all men are chauvinists,but the ones who are ,are very staunch about it.And thats makes things difficult for people around.Personally,Ive been around a lot of good men and I really find them fun-loving and fun to talk to. I just wish all of them could get this chauvinistic attitude and male ego out of their minds,that would make it a better place for them to live as well.
Men who know they are chauvinists must remember that a woman cant do the things mentioned above, but that doesn't make a woman any weaker. And this world would be a better place for both sexes to live in peacefully if chauvinism from both sides (read:men) ends..I don't think people like me would ever post blogs like this then...

This is the first time Im blogging.Hope this goes well.Basically this was my brother's idea to begin a blog after i told him this funny story that happened in my college NIT Bhopal.
This incident happened during my DBMS minor project when i was in the 4th semester IT. As DBMS was my subject and Oracle 9i a compulsory tool to use for database(I still don't know why it was) ,we were asked to create an innovative project (not using C or C++,another head scratcher). So our team decided to use a back end server of ASP combined with SQL. Now we had five teams in my class,and everyone had pretty much geared up for it ,except for our team. Now finally after the laid back attitude of one and a half months ,the professor finally gave us the final date of project submission. Suddenly waking up from our siesta we pulled our heads together for the completion(read:beginning) of the project...Our project was basically one of having a database of movies where people connected through the LAN could insert their IP address corresponding to a particular movie and thus they could share movies within a hostel. Now i was mainly in charge of the database part . I started feeding in data at full pace..Now the problem that arose was that I didn't know how to save the insertion after I closed the program(Eyebrow raiser..I know). But to my surprise,no one in my class knew hoe to save the SQL insertion commands.. I didn't know then(now I do) that this was one of the most basic commands any SQL users should know.Luckily I met one of my seniors who happened to tell me that the command was "COMMIT;"..My brother had a hearty laughter when he heard this..And because of this and a lot of other reasons,he pities the scenario at NIT Bhopal.
