PS :- I have observed that survey guys do lots of mistakes, like in Outlook they considered IIIT-H a government institute. And here in Dataquest survey they considered IIIT as part of IITs while ranking the non-IIT institutes.

PS:– Ironically NSIT stood 23 in the survey.

PS:— For the same academic year IIT-kanpur stood 1st and last among the IITs. What would u call that?

PS:—- For more details read the latest issue of Dataquest. It not up on net till now.

PS:—– Back to me.

PS:—— Lost a bet to Akash, will write about it in detail in the next post.

PS:——- song of the day Bol na halke halke – jhoom barabar jhoom

PS:——– finished 3 novels in 2 days. Isn’t a world record?

PS:——— end of post.
