If you were to come back to insti after some 20 years and take a walk starting from stadium all the way around insti through CCD, Tiff, OAT, cauvery hostel, gurunath, CCW, swimming pool and finally back to stadium.
Quietly listening to the questions that every part of insti puts to you...

CLT : Have told u 'n' times that you are the elitist of students, you could give back so much to the society & the future is in your hands! Oops! I got it, Your pay slip is still not enough. seems like the society hasn't given enough to u in 20 years :(
