102nd Convocation ceremony

Yesterday I witnessed a convocation ceremony, which did not resemble one in the least. And to add to the misery, I was a part of the batch who had just passed out of PU after 4 years of toil to get an engineers degree. The least I expected was a decent convocation ceremony.
For starters, what does convocation mean (obviously in the context of graduation) - In many universities throughout the world convocation is the university graduation ceremony to award degrees to students and honorary graduands.
Does awarding degrees mean people sit at a counter, you stand in a line, await ur turn, when its ur turn show them ur number and they give you your certificate? In my opinion awarding a degree would be when your awarded your degree in front of quite a few people. Isn't it?
Anyway, as usual we always have fun...meeting old friends..just seeing familiar faces...seeing faces we dont really want to see at all...:)
We went to the univ at 10am...got our certificates, waited up for people we had planned to meet...and then since all of us had taken half day off at work..we planned to make full use of it..:) None of us wanted to go back before time...:D
So, had fun in the univ...roaming here and there...and all the usual stuff. Bumped into our principal. And the best part, he recognised me..?? why..?? Was it coz I was always in the forefront when he lectured us on bunking pracs and lecs :)
Then to get our pic...in the graduation gear...while waiting in a long line, we actually came up with a nice business plan. Next year we plan to provide that gear to people and we'll take nice pics of theirs in them. Facilities we wud provide, tats our business secret so not posting it here..;)

Some pics...





yaaaaayyy...!! :)
