My Report Card 2008


2008 has been the most memorable year for me till date,as it was the most eventful one,professionally and personally….
Started off by feeling responsible,after i got into Keane…Irrespective of what the company was,what my job profile was,i felt really happy,the way i hadn’t felt till then….A new kind of experience of having tryst with the corporates…
Just after that,I was sucked into Team STUDSAT,a student team building a pico satellite….A whole new set of people,events,tasks,working style…I liked it…I bet they liked me too…
Then came my first Quiz Mastering-“Test Your Common Science”,which happened suddenly…A friend of mine was the catalyst who hosted it with me,we together put up a good show….The response was overwhelming,i was flattered, i realised a new dimension of my personality….
The second quarter gave me another surprise…This time the college fest…I was made the Head of the Tech committee…I didn’t realise the amount of responsibilities i’d have to carry out…But, i realised them soon and delivered what was expected of me…I also hosted a Tech Quiz-The Opera of Grey Matter and the Tech Paper Presentation as a part of the fest…
Simultaneously,there was another “first time for me” happening…I was rehearsing for my first ever dance show…Few of my classmates who were just acquaintances became friends…I danced….Yes,but not actually dance,atleast a try…
Then,i got into SASKEN,one of the companies i really wanted to get into due to few reasons….First,its an Indian Company,second its a good place to work…
Finally,my 6th semester ended…I was conscious that i had drifted away from my academics…I didn’t want people to point at me and tell that i had switched modes…So,i put in a bit more efforts towards the end and i had a jump of about 5% from my 5th semester marks….The best part was,i got the results on my birthday…
Till then, work had been very tight and demanding with extra working hours,less no.of lectures,more of gypsying(if u wanna call it so)…But then, i made two new friends…I hope they’re gonna come a long way with me in my life…Had real good times and times i wanna forget with them…..
The third quarter ended with the Best Team Award for team STUDSAT(satellite team) in The International Astronautical conference,Scotland….I’m one of the team members….While this was going on i was hosting An interesting competition called THINK TANK in college…
Then,i got into a new stream of thinking by indulging myself into Open Source Software and the Free Software Movement…Its Still going on…It is something which i’m really proud to be a part of…Cos,it works on principles and how you live wth those …
This was followed by Our Paper,which i presented at an International conference organised by ISRO in Chennai,which won the Best Paper award…And subsequently i was awarded the Best Student Award from ISTE(not related to STUDSAT)….
Now, i’m ending my year with my 7th semester exams…I’ve given a decent and steady performance in these exams also….
I had loads of fun by the way…Another pleasant surprise of 2008 was 7 new albums from ARR and one from Bryan Adams…..It was like icing on choco cake to me….I Hope that 2009 is much better…
And i wish you all a happy and gratifying 2009…
