Remarkable voyage

Image
last tuesday at about 5:35pm i left hall-4 to leave for RLy station and from there to western India, chasing my dream. though the journey is a bit tough starting from north central railway to western central railway through northern railway I enjoyed most part of it with the two perry mason novels I carried. then i reached Ahmedabad at 19:30hrs on 20th Dec. As usual I went to the wrong address(donno wn i go to exact address :( ) called the organizers, troubled them a lot and even lent Rs 10/- from one of the organizers. they were so cardial and helpful. after that I've been allotted a Dorm along with some ppl from Tamilnadu. they were so verbose in tamil that there hardly any English word in their chat. then I understood why my non AP frens scold me a lot when i talk with my co andhra frens in Telugu. but never mind its my right to talk in the language which i like. though i was with them chattin about their university, their studies etc my mind was filled with the presentation w…

the placements

it was at 12:31pm on the day of world's human rights i got a call which is much awaited. it was from an unknown number and made me take it easy. a call from adhiraj of stats dept who is coordinating our interviews in symphony. the conversation lasted for only 23seconds still that remains as one of the crucial conversations i ever made. he jus said "U made it" i checked once again whether i'm listenin or not! yes it was true he said dt. and by that my job search ended with an entry in to the symphony solutions, bgl. In fact it was a much awaited one because of the three consecutive setbacks i faced. HSBC was a narrow chance and i still couldnt account for my rejection in the interview stage. Genapct was a bolt from the blue. I'm jus out of it in the written itself. to be frank I'm damn shocked. at this point of time I dare to say that the SPO has failed in that regard. Had it been scheduled after the GE there might be more chance for me. and Market Rx was the…

Avimuktam, AnandaKaranam..

Exactly one week ago by this time I'm in Kanpur Central Rly station to take a train for my dream trip. I'm going to a place potrayed as Avimuktam, AnandaKaranam.. that is what the ancient saints praised that place. A place of real pious atmosphere and the presence of divinity can be experienced in every corner of the place. Hindus dream of visiting the place atleast once, a dream heaven of Bharatharatna Bismilla Khan. Yes, I'm referring to the holiest place on the earth. you may call it "KASI", "BENARAS", "VARANASI" or anything else. According to a story, the place is called the second wife of Lord Siva. I feel very fortunate to be there. our journey took off with a late arrival of mine and missing the IITK bus to rly station.(got enough scoldings for dt). later everything went like a dream. We could do the Rudrabhishekam in the holy Bramha Muhurtam. Later went on to see the Golden idol of sree Annapurna Devi apart from the sacred Visalaxi tem…

stupidity at its best!!!

ever since the attack on the Indian parliament all the political parties condemned the attack and appealed to deal the terrorism with iron hand. but when it comes to reality what matters most for the political parties is their repective vote banks and their own personal interests. It is a matter of shame dt an Indian State has a person like Gulam Nabi Azad as its CM. being the chief minister of a state he is voicing against the ruling of the nation's apex court. this is happening only in India and this can happen only in India. as long as the Indian race sleep in the myth of peace, tolerance etc and forget things called self esteem no terrorist in the country can be properly convicted. I really nevr understand in which we are going. some ppl say we dont sing the national song, some ppl say release the culpricts, some say divide the land etc and we tolerate all these saying words like democracy, power of expression etc. everyone speaks about the fundamental rights of the ppl but c…

decision making

"To be or not to be dts the question" says a Shskespearean character in "As You Like It". after all our life is about making a right decision at right time. but dt 'll be the toughest part of one's life. a boy says to a gal "But for seeing you I might 've become a seer" dt throws the gal in to a hot situation. she neither knew dts 100% sycophancy nor the criticality of her decision. making a decision would change the face of her life. in the recent past I shud place myself in the position of the gal afore mentioned. and the position of the boy can be given to an Indian Auto Gaint and an American Univ. but fortunately I'm intelligent than the typical "gal"(no hard felings). so I was reluctant for both the offers . but dts no easy going for me. I had valuble suggestions from my buddies, family and my beloved mentor(VIMP Sir). now by virtue of those decisions i've to work more for my placements which r going to be held in decme…

what a hectic week

every human being has to face some crests and troughs in the journey called life. I understood this fact very well in the last two months. experienced some joyful moments and faced some humiliations. but that was all personal for me. last time when i updated my blog i was thinking to write about friendship and its implications but ended up in writing about prabha. In fact that always happens with me. I starts with somethin in mind but end up with something else. even my deeds in this week are going similarly. I was thinking to do some research but never did it all through this week. I met my guide, a sweet and cardial person one can ever find seeking his guidance. he said that my work till then was admirable. may be thats why i didnt do any work till now and another meet with the guide is in store coming monday. another big issue with me is my sleep. ppl tracking my blog would know better what kind of a worst sleep i get. believe for the past 15days i never went to bed before 2am. whe…

Prabha..my dearest

jus about 45min ago train no:2225 left kanpur station to Delhi. a mob of iitians were on the platform and only one lean person with a hair style of a rock star entered the train and the train went on its unending journey making way for a new turn in that person's life. No one in the train knew that this person's journey is not to Delhi but to Technical University of Munich, Germany. no one knew that this person is goin places in his career.
almost 13months ago i entered room no: C-211 of Hall4. in the first week of my stay i didnt met any one from the IME dept. then an andhra fren of mine showed a person leaner than me with spectacles in eyes named "prabhakar". this is the same person left iit a couple of hours ago.
first thing i recognised about him is his telugu accent which is very strange to me. and his feelings are also same regd my telugu. as we ppl hail from two extreme corners of AP we never came across one others' language. though he is a domicile of AP he…

Vandemataram!!!

Image
History has a place in its annals for many great people who influenced the masses around them. but its rare to find that one word motivated millions of people. It is the same word which created panic in the majestic empire of "the sun never set". It is the same word which provoked the sleeping patriotic zeal in the Indian SubContinent. Being an Indian I feel proude to yell "vandematarm" as a bow to my motherland, as a pledge to contribute towards my nation. the sacred ode manifested the elegance of Bankin Chandra Chatterjee in bringing the fire from deeper layers of human hearts. Because of this reason the word has become a synonym of Indian National movement. But unfortunate thing is that the present day politicians are resisting its patronization for the sake of vote bank politics. Much has happenend in the country because of the vote bank politics and this is one awkward face of it. the sole target of Mr Mulayam Singh Yadav is to potray hiself as the saviour and…

where r we goin???

i had a fren named Amritesh who is an active member of Bharath Uday Mission kanpur chapter. though i'm not a member of that chapter i 've the habit of discussing about our nation's future prospects with him. last night our discussion turned on to a concept called "nation's development through self development of individual" i strongly believe that this is the only way to develop our nation. people like motilal nehru, Hegdevar envisioned this long ago but the concept failed to reach the masses of the nation. In the present day i found only Vijay kumar sir of VIMP(my institute) is carrying the flag of self development. two incidents in the recent past provoked me to believe in this philosophy. they are:
Infamous Rakhi Sawant Case:
in this case rakhi sawant publicly admitted that she has kissed mika on his cheek and has no problem if he replied similarly. she attended the party with no cover on her back and a shot instead of trouser.(i feel ashamed to describe …

IIT is IIT

almost ten months back i am reading india today magazine and i found an article entitled "US at IITs mercy" this article quoted about the way American congress expressed its grattitude to IITs and also they mentioned a fact that about eight thousands IITians are working in silicon valley and attributed the growth of silicon valley to this fact. after going through this article i thought "how come this many people gets seat in IIT?" then i turned my face to find myself in an IIT. that was really a dream came true for me!!!
now i am doing my summer internship in maruti. on an official visit i went a company called "SONA Steering" there i observed clear difference in the way people treat me once i reveal that i am an IITian. that really astonished me. the facilities, the environment and everything here is fabulous. after going to delhi i found how good my IIT is.
on september 7th 2005, i said to my cousin that IIT is like heaven. now i feel that IITK has surp…

financial mgt..

by keeping this title i'm not referring to the financial issues a person involved but i 'm mentioning about the course which i did this semester. this was taught to us by Dr.phani covering a vast domian of syllabus. this was and this will be the toughest course for me in IITK. when course started which BEA i thought that it 'll be a cake walk to me as i've got exposure to those concepts in btech. as the time passed on the course turned to be more case oriented. as i'm pasionate about cases i enjoyed doing them. but the real problem was the first midsem. i thought that i did very well and expected good marks but in practical i managed very meagre marks. i found my mistakes and worked to overcome them. then a catastrophe came by name of bond evaluation. this has the base of time value of money. as i did time value of money i thought i can do better in the next mid. but i'm proved to be totally wrong. i onceagain ended with a score less than the average. this tim…

i dont really know how to start this post.. let me put it this way

IME rocks
yes this is what happened in the fourth floor of "celebrations" last friday evening. it was a great evening for all of us. as it is the last function with our beloved seniors we thought it should be memorable for all of us. and it turned to be so. we reserved the fourth floor of "celebrations" and we are supposed to reach there by 7pm. but my class mates are too punctual to do that. so we started at the hostel by 7pm and reached there by 7:45pm. then started the real event. we called each of our seniors on to the dais and interviewed, ragged, discussed with them. to be precise we had a great fun with them. the conversation from the hotseat went as follows:
mayank sir: the first to take the hot seat.
we people forced him to do tell the embarassing moments of his life and he explained his college ragging incident. though he told only one incident we made many inferences from th…

infamous cycle chain

five years back late in the evening i was coming from the world famous eamcet coaching center from kadapa coined as Chandra coaching center, buddies like balu, raja sekhar etc were there along with me. as i crossed the RTC bus-stand i found my college girls staring at each other. basically they used 2 leave well ahead of us so as to reach the home as early as possible. coz of our pricipal's "effect" we nevr used 2 talk with the girls so we were abt to cross them. one girl who is the sisiter of my fren asked me to place the "cycle chain" properly. i thought it was her cycle that troubled so i got down. later i found that it is one of the uncorrectable mistake of mine in that year. as i reached them she showed a cycle and i tried to replace the chain properly. but destiny has something else for me so i failed to replace the chain. shameful fact here is that i am riding bycycle from my 6th standard.i tried to do it again. none of our batch mates turned to me. at t…

balu..ABCDEF

almost seven years back i was as usual playing cricket in the street(by bunking the school). the captain of the other team said that "i'll take balu" referring 2 a kid of 4th class. my team captain responded with a similar dialogue "i'll take this balu" showing a guy looking a bit fat with sharp eyes and serious face. i never knew that this guy is going to be come my pal soon. the same guy roamed with me for next six years and presently doing Mtech(VLSI design) at NIT Trichy. the only thing most of the time we did was talking 2 each other till we completed Btech. i never thought that he 'll do engg along with me coz he had better chances and i was sure that both of us can do Mtech at same place. but none of them happnd. we did engg together and moved away for Mtech. thats life!!! whenever i think of balu i recall the many evenings which we used to stay with each other. we used laugh like anything making fun of all the things around us. one incident whic…

cricket zindabad

amazing, unbelievable, incredible all these words carry a lot of weight with them. but none of them can explain the match which i have just seen.
date:12/03/06
venue: vandarers, SA.
teams: SA & Aus
two giants of the present day cricket manifested the reason they r called the spearheads of today's cricket. firstly its Aussies who made a herculian total of 434/4 in 50 overs. thanx to do the unbelieveble performance from the skipper ponting and whirlwind episodes from Gilchrist and Hussey. can anyone ever dreamt of this total? none!! but the nightmare came true! thats wat the Aussies are capable of! they carry their nation's pride with their baggy green cap and the hunger to win in their belly. they had the heritage of Sir Don, gile of Steve Waugh and will of Border. with all these abilities they paid their tribute to the game of cricket. after seeing the score of 434 i thought South Africa will be good side if they managed to make the defeat margin less than 100. but South Afric…

you complain because roses have thorns but you can rejoice saying thorns have roses says a charecter in a comic strip. thats wat i mean to say yeah, optimism.. this is one thing which we require the most to survive in this world. all our deeds are based on the only assumption arising from a concept called optimism. if you google the world "optimism" you will end up in getting 3 crores of results in .21seconds. this number explains you the value world is offering to this word. five years back from now one of my fren gave me quote " meeting and parting is the way of life, parting and meeting is the hope of life" all the so coined winners of life had it in tons and all the mediocres lack in their thinking. now the question is wat is this so called optimism? its not a complex concept like the blackhole theory or stock market analysis. its jus feeling good about yourself, your family, your frens and the society which you live. dont think that your fren dont help you whe…

tuesday turmoil

well, ladies and gentlemen now the time is 6:35am IST. jus now i had my bath and my neighbour was amazed to see me coming out of bathroom at this early hour. In fact I did a lot more works till now. I had read the eenadu paper, meditated and now updating my blog. I believe those who read my earlier posts will be feeling happy for all these works of mine. In fact I was very busy in talking to my fren thru skype at 8pmGMT and then i watched my best movie "tholiprema". Inspite of doing all these things I am able to bath at 6am. dont you smell something strange?? yes, there is no relation b/n wt i said till now and the title of the post. there is no turmoil in reading the paper or talking with frens etc. waking up this early is also not an issue. my neghbour also meant the same by giving the quote "you can wake"(as shiv khera says "you can win"). but the main issue is who is going to wake up? obvious answer is those who slept. that is the tiny thing which i …

an exam can change ur life

last night as usual i tried hard to sleep but failed to sleep by 1am. this is the nth time i am failing in the last couple of weeks. i went thru all my soal mates like Sherlock Holmes, Swami and tintin but failed to sleep. then i went to the most common IITian option, watching a movie. i am happy to find "chukkallo Chandrudu"(thanx to DC++) and watched that movie till 3:30am and slept at 4:30am. all thru that time i laughed with my frens, making fun with the dialogues and enjoyed well.

Exactly six days back in the same room at the same time i was feeling very disturbed coz of my insomnia. At 2am i tried to sleep but failed. i tried to read something for the exam next day. but i felt very drowzy and my eyes started paining. At last i meditated for half an hour(thanx to VIMP) and slept.

in both the cases mentioned above, the test sample is myself and the working conditions are same except an exam, but results are in contradiction to each other. the simple reason for this happen…

I like the following ode so much that i view it thrice a day. so i felt it deserve a place in my blog.
khubsoorat hain wo lub jo pyari batein kertey hain ..
khubsoorat hai wo muskurahat jo dosaroon ke chehroon per bhi muskan saja de ..
khubsoorat hai wo dil jo kisi ke dard ko samjhey jo kisi ke dard mein tarpey ..
khubsoorat hain wo jazbat jo kisi ka ehsaas karein ..
khubsoorat hai wo ehsaas jo kisi ke dard ki dawa baney ...
khubsoorat hain wo batein jo kisi ka dil na dukhaein ...
khubsoorat hain wo ankhein jin mein pakezgi ho sharm o haya ho ...
khubsoorat hain wo ansoo jo kisi ke dard ko mehsoos kerke beh jaein ..
khubsoorat hain wo Hath jo kisi ko mushkil waqat mein tham lein ...
khubsoorat hain wo qadam jo kisi ki madad ke liye aagey berhein !!!!!
khubsoorat hai wo sooch jo kisi ke liye acha soochey ...
khubsoorat hai wo insan jis ko KHUDA ne ye khubsoorati ata ki...

Yesterday I asked my fren "'ve u been to the class?" he replied "It was very early in the morning at 11am. so I couldnt turn up". Yes for the ones who go to bed at 5am, 11am is very early. We wake at the noon attend a class or two work for a couple of hours to complete an assignment, watch a movie or two and go to bed again. These are the major events of a typical iitian day. It starts with the lunch, followed by a class or a movie. Dont believe if i say movie every day!! but we have more than thousand films in our LAN and almost all the rooms had a place for the idiot box. while buying people say "My course curriculum consists of more projects" but later they switch on to 'another' projects by an utilization factor of more than one. Till evening 12Oclock(sorry its midnight for others) we go for parties, chit chat in the canteens, play shuttle, billiards and then we feel "its the time for movie" and reach the idiot boxes where ever a…

pillars of my life

As another year passed I felt that this is the time to re-investigate the factors of my growth and so I am publishing this as a "namaskaram" to all of them. I hail from Kadapa in Andhra Pradesh. I completed my engineering in KSRM college of Engg, Kadapa. Regarding my habits I do meditate dialy and like to listen melodious songs. Now-a-days I am listening songs from Linkin Park and other Rocks as my close friend is a diehard fan of Rock. My favourite sites are eenadu.net, ndtv.com, wikipedia.org. Right from my childhood I motivated myself by observing the exceptional skills of people surrounding me. On 7/5/2K3 I joined a gifted institute called VijayKumar Institute of MegaMemory and Personality development(VIMP) in Kadapa. I always consider that as the turning point of my life. After joining the institute I found what I am capable of and started moving in that direction. I am always thankful to Mr G.J.Raju who is one of my role models for his priceless advice. There are som…

hi

This is karthikeya from IIT Kanpur. This is my first message and so I want to give my introduction. I hail from Kadapa in Andhra Pradesh. I completed my engineering in KSRM college of Engg, Kadapa.

my almamater

These words of mine are neither from joy nor from ecstasy but from bitter agony which I experienced after getting cognizance about the present situation of the IPE dept in KSRMCE. Its very unfortunate to hear about the termination of the branch in the next couple of years. It is this branch which created many titans who are pioneering in academic as well as industrial arena. Few epitomes of excellence like are Sheshank(IBM), Pramod(HAL), Ashok(Zuari), Harish(Karvy) etc are only a few to quote. It is by virtue of this branch March 15th of every year is turning in to red letter day in the annals of the college. In fact the best gate rank ever is from IPE itself (Sheshank AIR 10). Even in gate-2005 the students of the department made merry. It is this branch which experienced the managing expertise of legendary C.S.Rao. With my experience of four years in the college I coin IPE, ME, CE as the best departments of the college. I feel that the IPE dept had surpassed the latter in some aspec…
