Week 32

The week started with the talks of review to be conducted on Monday but unavailability of panel members made way for another postponement. Its on next Monday. 

The college is now caught in the Mitafest fever. Mitafest is the colorful event that the college organizes during the even semesters where students from MIT and other colleges take part. There will be many events ranging from essay writing to cultural programs. The campus is filled with students participating in different events from Thursday evening. It will go on till Sunday night when the Mitafest will come to an end. Though this is my second year at this college I missed all the functions so far due to lack of interest. This is first time I am watching some of the programs of Mitafest. It doesn't matter whether or not the program is good but the audience have a nice time dancing to the tunes of the songs. The college has invited some celebrities from Kollywood and everyday we have some chief guests for the cultural program. Especially the events that are scheduled for the nights are very good. I should thank my classmates for this chance because we were planning for a trip during these holidays. Since I dint get cooperation from all my classmates I had to drop the plan. In fact I had some misunderstandings and patch ups with some of my classmates in this tour planning. Even now I don't talk to some of them and I don't think I would patch up with them before I complete the course. Some of my classmates are really friendly and I don't mean that all are bad. Its because of one or two in the class the whole trip got collapsed and there wont be any  good memories to cherish upon after we go out of this college. I too left it thinking these people want to be just classmates and not friends. I think I am going too emotional now so it would be good to stop here. 

Really nothing interesting in personal life as well as college life except this week's Mitafest. I wish all the reader friends a happy weekend as usual and sign off for the week. Take care.

Week 31

Yet another normal week in my life. I was not well in the beginning of the week due to viral fever and recovered in couple of days. Since we had local government holiday on Wednesday the week dint seem too hectic though we were supposed to have had review. The review got postponed to next Monday as of now and I don't know atleast it would be the final postponement. I took leave on Tuesday to recover from the illness, so I had only 4 working days in the week. All these days we (M.Tech classmates) are much worried about publishing our project work in some conference and completing the implementation of our project. We have very little time to do all these and write the thesis of the project work before we complete the degree. There are not much days left in the countdown timer above. Among all these work I found some time to watch some of the warm up matches that India played and right now I am watching the first ODI of the ongoing ICC world cup. India is the favorites to win the match though the home team is fighting it hard out there. Lets all cheer for team India in the ongoing series. Jai ho. 

Well thats it for the week. I wish all the reader friends a happy weekend.

Vinoth and Sharmila Birthday Celebration and Photos

8th of February was a memorable day because two of my classmates(Vinoth and Sharmila) celebrated their birthdays. We all were present except one(Priya). As planned we celebrated their birthdays by cutting a cake during lunch hour. We went to a class in the lecture hall complex and spent sometime there cutting the cake and clicking some photos. After that we all had our regular work to do till 4.30 pm. In the evening boys alone in the class went out to have dinner in a hotel (Al Karishma) near Kumaran Kundram temple in Chrompet. It was a treat by Vinoth. We all had biryani in the hotel and then we identified an ice cream stall near by where we had ice creams. 

One more day that will stay in the memory for long. To view the photos CLICK HERE.

Treat At Nallas

We, M.Tech 2nd year, went out to have lunch at Nallas in Chrompet. It was a treat by the students who got placed in companies to the entire class. We had a good time in Nallas that day. 7 of us had got placed in three different companies. 5 got placed in TCS, 1 in Wipro and myself in  Capgemini. Recently, after the treat, Mohana has got placed in CA Technologies. Actually only one more has to get placed and others have preferred teaching after M.Tech. All 14 of us were present for the treat and we had good fun at the hotel. I thought of uploading some of the photos that we took on that day but the photos that I have uploaded so far in this blog are not showing up in the posts. So, I thought of putting them on picasa and then giving a link here. Henceforth I will be giving only the links here since I face this problem. To view the photos of this post please CLICK HERE.

Week 30

It was a week with lots of quarrels and patch ups. Got angry on some of my classmates for not co-operating for the trip that I was planning. It was a normal week otherwise but after a long time I was called into HOD's room and was scolded. This time I was scolded for something for which I was not responsible but still I had the company of 3 other classmates. The second review has started and its going on. The pressure is already on me since I dint do well in the project in the past. One more student from my class got placed and its now 8 out of 14 who have got placed in companies. 5 are not interested in going to software companies and as of now only one is trying for IT companies in the class. Feeling that the pressure is easing off from me since the course is nearing its completion. I have just started to prepare the paper that I have to publish to get the degree. Actually I am planning to publish two papers before I complete the degree. Let's see whats going to happen. Well, thats it for the week. I wish all the reader friends a happy weekend.

Week 29

It was a memorable week. We (my classmates) went out to have lunch at Nallas (a hotel near our college) on Friday and had some good moments there. It was a treat by the students who got placed in the class to the entire class. Other days were very normal and boring as usual in the college. A little bit of progress in the project and thats it about it. Since we have got college on Saturdays also its really hectic and boring throughout the week. I really don't know why we people come to college though we don't do a great deal of work in the college. Since there was no talk about the review for the project work there were less problems for us. From the next week onwards the tension of project review will start. Again its the same kind of pressure we face here. Its not how well we study here but its how well we obey the staff here thats really matters the most. In fact the students who don't do well would score more than the students who really did well. Thats the fate of the students who study in autonomous institutions. Anyway I have to follow the rules and regulations of the college for the next three months to go. Until then I think the same routine would continue for the rest of the degree. 

I wish all the reader friends a happy weekend ahead.
