Dining @ Old Ahmedabad

Amazing place I discovered yesterday. Always heard stories about the wonderful food present in the by-lanes of Old Ahmedabad. But experienced it first hand yesterday.
Treat given by Basu da, our group mate! A line of non-veg street side eateries adorned that narrow lane. We went to ZK Fry Centre. And what a pleasure it was to witness the chicken being "tandoored" right beside you!!!

If 1 tandoori chicken was not enough, I had 2 more followed by chicken fry, prawn fry and chicken biriyani. The icing on the cake (chicken?) was well halwa!!!

1 more year left at Ahmedabad and I need to explore all the eateries at Old Ahmedabad. Starting to love the city. Its got a life of its own. Right from the Navratri celebrations to the Kite flying festival in January. From Rambhai outside campus to the friendly auto rickshaw drivers (Yes, I call them friendly since they go by the meter which is a non-existent phenomena back in Chennai). Its a place waiting to be explored. Away from the monotony of the Red Brick Walls.

End of the 1st Term @ WIMWI

Never felt as relaxed before as now. What a roller coaster ride I had in these 3 months at IIMA. Quizzes,assignments,WAC,T-Nite,parties and not to mention the dreaded slot exams. Back to the same routine again on Tuesday and its only gonna get harder from now on.

It was just like yesterday when I entered this campus and felt overawed by its magnificent architecture and now its become more like a routine walking through the LKP with the tall buildings still staring at me and mocking at our plight (1st years do have a hard time out here!!!).

Disappointed by Parker

A so called US based company Parker had come for the campus placements.Highly disappointed with their process...
Making us wait till 2 pm for the written test with their flights reachin late(so much for punctuality)
Worse still was the way the interviews were conducted...I was the last person to be interviewed and had to wait till 4pm for that.

The people from the other department had been interviewed on an average of 30 mins...It does feel bad when you are not given a chance to showcase yourself.Mine lasted just around 15 mins...Without any technical questions,all this didn't make any sense...The HR's didn't ask many questions.Rather I was asked to tell the questions the other people who went before me were asked.

Still I feel I need to develop the ability to impress the interviewers in the limited time I get be it 10 mins or 30 mins...Looking forward to doing my best in the next interview.

Cognizant calling

Got the first placement this season: Cognizant.

Had a great day today.Interview went superb.Was asked general stuff and some basic questions in mechanical.

Useful advise for people appearing in interviews will be to be confident throughout the interview and never show that you get tensed or nervous.Frankness and honesty are the key.Guess work will not be serving any purpose.

Looking forward to getting some core offer also!!!

CSK wins IPL 4

The Super Kings have done it finally...They've lifted the coveted IPL trophy.It has been an all round team effort.But feel sorry for the Mumbai Indians who've played great cricket throughout the tournament.Next year Sachin won't be taking it easy...He'll lift the world cup for us and the IPL trophy for his Mumbai Indians!!!

Happy new year!!!

Happy Tamil and Bengali new year to everyone...

But this day is significant for me in more ways than one...Its precisely on this day last year that something shocking happened.So shocking that it will knock the winds out of anyone who encounter such a situation... A person doesn't call you for a year....A person doesn't respond to you...A person whom you' thought your friend betrays you...What can be more shocking than that...

The word "friendship" is getting diluted these days...Something important I've learnt in the last one year...This blog is not meant to be a place to garner sympathy from others.So I won't be going into any more details...
