Elections are big business. India is the biggest democracy although not the fairest one. They say “power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely” Our English lecturer mentioned this while explaining the poem in context. Sitting in class i get to see the great game being played together with pawns and all. The kings and queens attack. Chess turns into Checkers. People i trusted have lessened and i think before i speak nowadays. Its deadly. Being Neutral like me i cant align this way nor that. Thats one of the side effects to being to nice to everyone. in E&C elections are the most serious. No other branch is bothered too much about the student council posts but as it was last year even this time the EC one takes the cake. Aleast in my class, with 3 sections merged into 2, the groupism is rampant. Deals were made to win executive post elections, i heard. i also stood for the elections and lost by a small margin. but when there were 9 people vying for 3 measly posts i knew it would be some crazy farce anyway 😀 Okay now we have Raison up for the vice president post. Hopefully he wins. Our campaigning among the EC 2nd years looks good. Either ways he’s the superior choice to the other two guys.
I think im going back to being a loner. Wish like minded people would be placed in the same class. alas thats Utopia.
Look around tell me what you see
What’s happening to you and me
God grant me the serenity
To remember who I am.

i wish i could rewind back.
to the days of ignorance and bliss.
sometimes its better to sit in the dark.
