Before getting into the whole cliched and senti 'experiences' post , lets just take a break here. yesterday, I wrote about how I am a alak a3 guy first... ad finally and IITian. This branding got me thinking, as to what exactly is my identity.

Then it struck me. I( and i'm guessing most) view themselves as a part of subset and then the bigger set and so on. For eg,. I view myself as a Telangana guy, then a person from AP, then from South India and finally an Indian, necessarily in this order. But this alone will hardly complete my identity.

So what exactly makes up for identity? Googling a lil , i found this satisfactory asnwer for identity. Identity is 'what' or 'whom' you identify with. Wiki says "in lay mans terms, what ever makes a quanity same or different". Any1 sensing a problem with the definition? Infact there are some random meta physical and logics of indetity at wiki.

Yes, Yes.. I am writing all this because my project report is done, and have nothing better to do and so felt writing random blogs kills good time. Although I did seriously think about Identity, and I still am. So, care to leave your identity below and give new insights into your identity? I'll be glad.

Ok, end of break

End of days

Well, it's over. Or almost so. If I do a decent viva voce (is likely), and the good Rajendran doesn't pain with no dues ( heavily heavily unlikely) , I should be through with insti in at most a week. 've been itching to write about take aways, you know, final words. But there are too many aspects in insti life to cover.
I see myself as an Alak A3 guy first, a civil 05 batch guy , a finance core , a gult and an IIT Madras man , mostly in this order. Had quite a few interesting experiences being all these, independently and together. Will narrate each. Check out this blog for the Alak A3 guy first. Its about 12 now, Lan cut, so will update tomorrow.
