Choose... really goes a long way in describing the kind of a life we squeeze into at NIT-K. It's a proportionate mix of agony and pleasure which goes on for a good 4 years, making us all the more prepared to endure anything severe. Dha's captured it well and dished out, in his own rollicking style...!
