All about my great college AMC Engineering College, Bangalore.
Weeeelll Today was something…
Had a test for which, as usual I had not studied. Tried to study in the morning an hour before the test but was not in the mood to. Almost ditched it but wrote it just for the heck of having gone all the way till college. Well it turned out to be better than I expected. Could answer the required 5 questions and managed to get the marks I wanted( which is max ;-) )
After that had a birthday party. A friend of Mine.. Happy B’day Ash :-)
Had gone to Pizza hut. Lots of fun, food and jokes. Good time. Only thing is that it prolly was the last time that we would be going out as a group as all of us will soon be graduating and going our own ways.
Oh.. well lets see what happens in the future.
Well today was the 1st anniversary of the company where I am doing my project – UGSI. There was celebrations and cultural programs(Dancing and singing), dart, face painting, caricature making … The usual routine. It was also the launch of the e-zine of the company’s software development group which was developed by us. And I must admit, it was no small task getting it completed with all the various inputs and objections. But we did it. Finally!
And today was the launch. It was the first event. Then there was a video presentation of the launching of UGSI and how it came to be what it is now. Then there was a few dance programs by kids of the various staff there.
There was also a music performance by the inhouse band who call themselves the “96 hours”. The name cos the band was formed 3 days back(96 hrs) and so on..
We also had a surprise waiting for us in the function in the form of a gift voucher from Landmark for our effort put in the e-zine. It was totally unexpected but then real nice as well. I did not stay long in the function as Dad was alone and so left early.
Nice day on the whole though :-)
The day started off brilliantly.. Stubbed my third toe against the bed head-board. Though did not pay much attention to it, it was hurting badly enough to make me limp.
I get to class and attend the class of the most hated lecturer of our department. Bah..
Luckily for us there was to be an announcement regarding the seminars we are supposed to give as a part of our semester evaluation.. Lucky me ;-)
Anyways the HOD came in and started lecturing us to attend class regularly before handing off the stage to the concerned lec. He is another unsupportive lecturer. Just keeps getting better.
He then proceeded to outline the guidelines regarding the presentation and the seminar. Interpreted the rules as strictly as possible and has left no space in trying to screw us out. I had multiple arguments and once to the point of almost walking out of the class.
He finally called the HOD in to deal with is (Me ;-) ) who came and stated that whatever the lec says is final. I had an argument with him too but to no avail Talking to them is like talking in space.. Cannot even hear oneself. Seeing it futile, I finally shut my mouth and tuned them out leaving the others in the class to deal with them.
Finally they left the class by which time the actual lecture was almost over. I wanted to leave immediately but had to wait for the rest of my group to leave.
Then they make a plan to go out for lunch. It was a nice lunch. Chinese.. Yum :-)
Then left to get my PC’s motherboard repaired.. Its burnt a capacitor or has a short.. Dunno which but has already fried my SMPS. Had to wait there for almost 3 hours. (Keeps getting even better doesn’t it) Finally the guy goes through it and says need to get it checked in the company service outlet.Grr.. Then why make ME wait..
Finally returned home after SUCH a productive day with my tow having turned blue from the morning stub…
Lets see how much more this weekend improves…
We finally spent an entire day in the company. But the systems are not set up completely :-(
Well we tried learning up some stuff related to the project. Learned quite a bit and wasted quite a bit of time chatting with each other ;-)
To top the day, our project guide announced he will not be coming tomorrow so another day of doing nothing. Hmm… I wonder how people get work done here. We have seen ppl chatting on Y! here quite a bit.
Most of the office is empty as the indian operations is understaffed. They are looking to hire a lot of recruits. Future possibilities :-)
Gotta go now…. Will post more updates soon
I write this from the company ;-)
We finally started the project. I have stolen the comp from my partner who is currently abusing me for keeping him unocupied :-)
More to come later…
Finally we obtained more information on the project that we are supposed to be doing. Till today, all the project manager(PM) would tell us was in very vague and broad terms as if he loved to obfuscate on his language!
With the approval on our side we scheduled a meeting with him to obtain the specifics of the projects. We went armed with a list of questions with which to assault him and get him to detail more about the project!
He was quite pleased with our effort and answered all the questions. At last we had something more concrete to go on in regard to the project. But we still do not know when we start. The system required by us have still not been sanctioned… Bureocracy.. Humph!
However, we should get a confirmation on our starting date by tomorrow!
As a part of the 8 semester of my engineering course I am supposed to do a mini internship possibly in a company. Basically I need to develop a project for a demo in front of the university examiner…
Through an uncle who works there, I finally got a project in a company called Unisys Global Services – India. Initially they suggested a project which was quite interesting and we were ready todo it. But unfortunately our hod rejected it cos it was not good enough for some reason.
Well we were back to square one.We went back to the company and explained our situation. fortunately for us the PM there understood our problem and helpfully suggested that he would ask other PMs and get back to us with another topic.
Finally after more that 4 meeting with them, we got another project which, wonder of wonders was suitable to the college lecturers. Then another problem arose. There was a delay in seeking the company management approval. That was two days back.
But now finally our guide said he has received the approval and that we should be able to start on tuesday. We meet him again on monday to discuss some issues abt the project.
But all in all some good news about the project at last :-)
