He is guy who is more interested in opening up a start-up than anything else. GSN has come a long way from being the ‘BITS360 guy’ to the ‘start-up guy’ and now is moving into a new domain of ‘writer guy’ or the ‘film-maker guy’. But this ‘guy’ is the one guy I will not forget, whichever ‘guy’ he chooses to play. Ganess as we called him (I still do), is a kid at heart, who gets super-excited at smallest of things. Always ready to do something ‘whacky’ and goes on giving ‘respects’ to people randomly (though he claims not to). A guy with whom I have shared so many things, someone I could go to anytime of the day and blabber bullshit to. A great friend and hope he turns out a better romantic than he was at college will do him great good in life. Could not find a more apt ending – The Man, the machine, the legend, the one man army – GSN.

Ganaesss!! AH7-149 is probably the second common-room of the hostel. Every guy who passes by, HAS to knock on his door, and chat with him for two minutes. This probably shows the humility and the open-heartedness of GSN. The guy who is always thrilled to gain new experiences and learn new stuff. Extremely sporty, and cool. He has a lot of habits which are so inspiring! The Idea book. That was something new for me, and I liked the concept a lot. Sometimes his behaviour goes a little haywire, like when he is wiggling his fingers, and running around in the corridor, but that’s okay. The poker tourneys, and saath mein Gujju ki gaand maarna .. are unforgettable. The poker was the most happening part of my day, and your “reverse psychology”, made it more interesting. You have been a great friend yaar. The best part was when me, kabzi & shah could just barge into your room after dinner/class and chill. The “Kshitij moments” have been epic. We could count on you to join us for some random Bog outing, and you would happily join (unlike Buddha, Gujju & Kabzi). And the night when you TALKED SO MUCH! (at Bog, kuccch yaaad hai? :P). The never ending discussion about the President of India. All the other time-paaas conversations with you, Chammaiyya & Ronit da. People just talked about Entrepreneurship & MBA, in the air. But YOU … you are someone jo is field mein dhooom macha dega. The DIVERSE range of business ideas that you had, and the fact that you phodofied the TIME mock tests, that reinstated the belief “is bandey mein toh kucch baat hai.” This air that you have, for being the right guy to get into Management, makes me so jealous of you, man. There are two things which really defined my perspective of you: Our first interaction was related to your DoSM induction. The answers you had written, and the responses you gave in your interview … were SOOO out of the box … I was like “fuck! This is some creative piece of ass. Thank God, I’ve come to the right place!” Then, there was the POE episode. During the first couple of weeks of the semester, you entered the class a little late. Gabru saw you, his jaw dropped, eyes popped out and he remarked “crap ! GSN is ALSO in this course ?! Damn!” What an Aura man ! A guy was actually scared because you were in the same course! 😛 . Best of luck for the future, bro. Gannu baba ki jay!

I remember meeting Gsn in the first week on campus and marvelling at his quintessential south indian actor mustache. That and his bits360 profile made him basically the most famous guy on campus. As the years passed by, Gsn left behind his “cool” mustache and took on some of the epithets of “economics pro” and “online treasure hunt god”. One of the few guys in EEE who I know well enough to call a friend, I don’t think anyone in the world will forget him in a hurry. Good luck dude. And keep writing those poems. Have it from a source that chicks do actually love them.

What’s the difference between a guy with a pulled down jeans; a baggy tee; yellow-framed specs and GSN? It’s the ‘cool’ factor and I’m obviously not referring to the former. With a common man gait and a down-to-earth personality, he is perhaps the coolest guy I have met on campus. A die hard romantic at core, he is also a brilliant writer whose blogs satiates the brain’s thirst for creative refreshers. I’ll definitely miss his ‘Wohoos!’ and ‘random’-ness and I wish him well for the days to come. Keep on rolling!

Ganesh!! I know you since 6th or 7th std when you had newly joined our school. In those days you were a bit geekish and a studious guy! Anyways later on you changed a lot and began your transformation from an introvert to an extrovert right in school. Remember those walks from school to our homes?? We used to have so much fun on the way back……I really remember those days…! BTW your new nickname GSN is really cool man…….In school we used to make so much fun with your surname!! Anyways, keep in touch man….and hopefully this Sunday we will meet! Keep chilling and enjoying life……..Cheers!!

GSN..my all time neighbor. However stupid, the fact remains we are actually sitting 10 feet across each other and writing our respective testimonials 😛 I was going to say “As a person Ganesh has always continued to mesmerize me” but GSN “tch tch tch”ed me out of it. On a serious note Ganesh was one of the first people I spoke to in BITS (thanks to his BITS360 fame). The amazing time that me, you and Kachhy had during the day b4 our xams still bring tears of laughter in my eyes. Over the years as my neighbor I have seen this guy evolving and encouraging new ideas. The best thing about Ganesh is he is always open to something new. And as multitalented as he is: be it entrepreneurship, coding, designing, story writing, poetry or being a lady’s man he has always down to earth and true to his work. The founder of BITSmart, and an entrepreneur at heart I know for sure that once you and me strike up the “you know what” we were talking about we will be THE next big thing. Apart from that one of the few people on campus who is always always chilled out and optimistic about everything in life. I know i dont need to say this to you but what more dramatic than “Find what you love and let it kill you” Hah! Ok enough drama now lets be losers again and start the war with our next door wala buddha.. Chao 😀

Ganesh nagarsekar a.k.a gsn, ganu happy go lucky most jolly person, I ever met. He always remains cheerful no matter what’s the situation. Kick ass writer, pure at heart and ready to help whenever asked for. I am sure one day he is going to be leading entrepreneurs of world. I would always remember room number 147(BITSMART) whenever feel bored just barge into the room and have random talks with this guy sometimes also try to depress him on some issues:P.I wish him all luck in his life and hope too keep in touch with him always
~Kshitij Jain (Batchmate- BITS Goa)
When it comes to amazing poetry or writing, I remember Ganesh bhai. This guy is super cool when you want a company to trouble innocent profs. I remember when we used to make fun of emech and opti classes. I wish u all the very best for ur future prospects make a good engineer and keep writing.
~Kushagra Nigam (Batchmate-BITS Goa)
GSN: GSN! I came to know this guy from bits360, where he was one of the most active users that I knew. And when we came to campus, it turned out that he lived pretty near my room. A good poet, as well as an aspiring entrepreneur(BITSMart, man, that was a big help), and now a writer too, this guys is bound to go places. Cheers, and yes, may the Force be with all of us! 😀
~Chaitanya Bhatt (Batchmate – BITS Goa)
GSN is one of the most diverse guy you will ever meet.Whenever i have contacted him he was engaged in some thing or other — from PSOC , to coding to writing ( He is a truly gifted writer!) Though initially he is little reserved , all those people who are lucky enough to be close to him ,cherish him. All the best for future bro :* stay in touch
~Shruti (Batchmate- BITS Goa )
I met Ganesh when he joined MATRIX in second year and later we became classmates in TSSN course. His blog is one of the best BITS will ever have. Sometimes his posts make me realize that he has written just what i wanted to read! besides the amazing writing skills, he is also a great designer and i still remember the amazing design of Touchstone, the not-so-popular MATRIX magazine! I never got to know him well, but his blog bridged that gap. He always has that friendly smile stretched across his face that saves the ice-breaking time! I wish you all the best for all your endeavors! keep smiling! 🙂
~Aishwarya Tiwari (Batchmate- BITS Goa)
We have known each other for quite a long time now, and I can say that u r certainly the most humble, helpful and talented person I have ever met 🙂 I have always been the greatest admirer of ur writing skills which are simply out of the world! I still remember when we were doing the mup project together and had to sit for hours in front of the library, thinking ways to write some random code so that it made sense 😛 I realised in those few days u r the kind of person one can totally rely upon. Thanks for helping me out in every way possible ( those stupid analog assignments 😉 ) U r a great friend and an amazing human being. Just keep smiling the way u do…all the best for everything in future… will definitely miss u!
