The previous days were pretty low, in terms of many things. Alhamdulillah, today proved amazing (again, in terms of many things).
The main thing? :)..
I stood second in my MS.. Allah ka laakhh shukkar! I cannot be grateful enough to Allah SWT for the achievement because since I had shifted departments, I was a complete loser in the beginning. Not quite knowing anything really, I had to bear quite a few embarrassments (say, "Who has never done Finite State Machines before?") :).
But now, I think the disappointments were worth it. Every hour spent studying up the stuff was worth it. Alhamdulillah multiplied by a gazillion.
PS: Insan kisi haal pe khush nahi .. :p. I do so wish the difference between the first and second position was not just 0.1 (GPA).. sigh. But *hurriedly*, I am grateful for the honor, anyway. :)
