20th July 2009 , the day I entered IIT Kanpur is still fresh in my memory because it was the day when I first met this guy.
It was the day when the fate of 18 unknown people were to be sealed in a system which requires them to be together for their entire stay at IIT ... We call it a wing and the people bingies ...
These 18 people are further divided into 3 brotherhoods ....
We belonged to one .... So in IIT he's my bro ... and outside IIT no less ...

Day one :
Our first bulla (casual talk) session .. He was occupying a corner seat .. His hair was well combed .. Looked like a tiny creature just like a momma's boy ... He then introduced himself just like others ... It was then I first heard his name - "SOUMYAJIT
BOSE , M.Sc. PHYSICS" .... First thing which came in my mind after hearing "M.Sc. Phy." .. Yeh kaunsa branch hai ... I thought IIT was all about engineering ... hoga koi bechara .. rank kharaab aaya hoga is liye MSc Phy. le liya ...
But soon I realised I was wrong ... he got a very good JEE rank but instead of going by the general trend he chose where his interest lied ... PHYSICS ..

Soon time passed and I came to know more and more about him . He is a jovial person who truly studies for knowledge not grades. He prefers , spending time with friends to wasting time before a computer. A very good football player in whom you can see the reflection of
MESSI. An artist with a superb imagination. Sincere , dedicated not only to his work , but also to his friends .... comes to our rescue whenever mid sem and end sem xams approaches ...

He wants to become a professor in future . In a place like IIT you see people competing in a rat race to get the best jobs and high salaries ... but people like Bose are rare ... he wants to teach .. spread knowledge. We curse our profs , but no one wants to become one in order to rectify the system . And Bose is one such ray of light which chose reflection over refraction .... rather than passing the system with little deviation ... he wants to give something back to the society. Just like we adore H C Verma .... a time will come when students will see him with respect and love ... a time will come when he will become not just a teacher , but a MESSIAH ...

    SO TRUE, SO TRUE, i've known him for two years and you can't help but worship him. This dude is a saint, its been a year since i met him last but still tell my friends about. Truly humble, doesnt care about how he looks or how tall he is, he's going to find something big and be super rich and is gonna drive around in a maybach laughing at people who wasted their lives trying to get marks. I know that
    I used to call him Soumyajit "The Boss" Bose.
