my dear students (nov 27th '11 to apr 21st '12 semester),
why write to you all today? well honestly speaking i have started missing you all. i have that feeling of emptiness in my heart. i feel guilty of leaving you midway for my selfish reasons. my reasons being that i want to do m.arch. in construction management & technology. so i want to reduce travel time to your college which is 2 hours one way from my home. at one point i was ready to rent a studio apartment near your institute. but my family put condition. first approach all institutes in western suburbs. so when i approached them in may and got positive response (which i was not expecting), whereby all my five days got booked end to end in various institutes. i was hoping to keep at least one slot for you. (i feel strongly about this even now. preferably Vth year id students' for WD). alas it is not happening. today i am sad. very sad. but please understand this. in larger interest of bigger student community, i want to up grade my knowledge. so doing m.arch. is very important for me. i did get invitation from your vice-principal to join as visiting faculty. and i always had invitation from you all. but sorry students, i could not make it. i am really, really sorry. please forgive me.
really i am very sad today. because in spite of my going around in many institutes and giving my best to new students, i am not able to get an emotional connect with them. its all very straight faced study most of the time and fun missing completely. some occasional smiles here and there. some of these institutes are reputed. so i am sure their principals would be horrified at my approach in our class-interaction whereby half the class was always in splits. so with new assignments i take extra care to be well prepared. and students are receiving my classes well. (i hope so). but i still miss you. some how you made me feel special. you almost pampered me. so i really really miss you all.
i miss varsha, divya, prasad, gautam, ashish, shreya and many more from 4th years id. i miss prachi, subhrata, yogita, trisha (trishaji - aapne coffee pee li?), rakesh, rahul, harsh, priyanka, ashwini, and many more from 3rd years id, i miss mota, gauri, duhita, sanchita, fernandes (the bright one) and many more from 2nd years id, and i miss all the students from 1st year b.arch section 'a' (particularly trupti and sayali) and clairian and sanket from section 'b'. you all were very dear to me.
but i promise you all for sure. in case you have any doubt in any subject or you need any help from me, just message me. i will address it in my blog. also if we can meet sometime out side institute, please let me know. if you are in town side after 4.0 pm for any site visit, just let me know i will join you. also i need a small favor from you. particularly, i will ask varsha to upload viva voce marks for 4th yr id, for ABCM and 3rd yr id for AD. varsha for 3rd yr id AD marks, you can ask anil to coordinate. why i need to know this marks now? i assume, this will help me to improve by understanding the complete procedure. if any body has failed in viva voce and being aware of that student's strengths, i would know how to guide my current students. please do this for me, without fail. and let me know when your results will come out.
thanking you all for making my stay with you so pleasant and memorable.
thanks once again.
thanks once again.
prof. atule kedia.
p.s. my wife sometimes over estimate my teaching capabilities. she is telling me that i have already prepared you for the rest of your b.arch. course. some people can be so naive.... (don't worry, i am safe, my wife does not know about this blog)
