Staying away – my updates

It has  been more than 1.5 years that I wrote something here. Staying away what have I been doing? Putting down: short updates since I wrote last.

The last time I wrote was when I got my birth day celebration photos, that was in Cognizant. I quit cognizant in 5th May 2009 and joined Keane the very next day.  It has been 6 months I am working in Keane. Time passes so soon. I had given my XAT, SNAP last year. Had not the market condition- recession touched peak, I would be doing my MBA in some institute, would have finished one year by now!!  The reason same applies for quitting Cognizant. Few changes in the team made me think for other opportunities. Not that I did not like the new role I got just few months before I left, but it was just getting hectic. Change in role is always good if  you work in a pleasing time and not completely to the new required timings.  I did learn a lot after that transition. Well it was time to move on to new job and Keane gave me a chance. Now I am deprived of weekend holidays but do get in the middle of the week-the same complete two days.

Not to forget about the drafts which never got chance to get posted.  The trips to theppakadu with cognizant team;  Melkote, Shivgange with batchmates and bus mates. Vellore and Thiruvannamalai with family in our car. Confirmation and travelling woes  in cognizant,   also one more post about job switch all remains as draft and I would not think of completing them and posting as I think they are stale!!

Life @ Cognizant

After first day in C V Raman nagar we were told to report at Airport road office the next working day for training. The training lasted for more than two months. At the beginning of the training I had no clue it would have a beautiful ending. I always thought training would be very boring. The basic idea behind the training and the work after that had created few doubts in my mind. But whatever it was, at the end of two months it was like a time bound journey which will stay in the memory for years from now.

Initial days were spent thinking when the training gets over and we will start working. But as the days passed it was not the same. At times I have felt why don’t this continue for two more months. It was all fun to be in that training. I had a nice time listening to the trainer! Most of the times it was not true. Best part is the outlook chat! As there were no chat engines(web sense) outlook played a major role. Entire day the screen would not stay without outlook. Also the games we used to get from other batch mates. The days passed too fast than expected. I can not forget the days we played basket ball and cricket. My college was located in J C road, can imagine in that busy area there was no playground. It was like I had not played for years. To compensate that we almost played everyday unless we had a strict trainer who would not leave till the minute. Not to forget the tests. Fudge, share, copy everything was allowed till we were caught!!!

Life at academy had one more best part I can always remember. The bus journey. I can continue writing for pages about the bus journey. Dc being the best part.

1st Day @ Cognizant

I joined Cognizant on 17th August. The first day was very good. They made us feel very comfortable. The fear of being exposed to the corporate world did not prevail for long. We were made to play virtual volley ball after taking our signature on various documents. The basic idea of making us play virtual volley ball was to know each other in the batch. First we were divided into 6 groups consisting of 5 members in each team. My team reached till finals and we were runners up. But we were presented with the same prize as of the winners. That was a cap on which the company name was written on the sides. After lunch we were told to report at wockhardt hospital for medical check up. This is a group snap of my batch. There are 30 in my batch. One missing in the snap. cts2elt.

Post exam time!

Exams had their happy ending on 19th. Just hoping to get marks for what I have written I started spending time attending functions, watching movies and touring. Three days after the exam I went to a marriage and reception on same day followed by Satyanaryan pooje the next day. It had been months I went to a function where in I could get in touch with some of my relatives. I got DVDs from a friend. He gave about 7 DVDs of all time watchable movies like Oceans eleven, FD1,2, Stuart Little1,2 Enemy at the gates, Road to Perdition. Of which I have almost finished 5 in two days. Other than that movies featured in tv. Next comes touring. Of which upcoming is the trip with friends. The location decided till now is Ooty- Coonoor which may or may not change! Then I’m planning to go to my native place the very next day I come from Ooty. Will write about the trip after coming from native place.

Exam!!

I look up in my site calender to know- I am away from writing for about two months now. Damn! I am approaching towards the end of my graduation. The three years bringing revolutionary changes in me, is gonna end! Now that I should be studying seriously for the final semester exam I am finding out ways not to get bored, Of which the best thing is to update my site.
I was busy with the project to be submitted as a partial fulfillment of last semester. We made a software for automation of sales and billing of a car showroom using VB and SQL. It was fun as we finished it without any one’s help. We learned different ways to implement certain features and were successful too. I enjoyed teaching others too. Next is the record writing. Being in final semester I had not written anything from the starting. So the entire record had to be completed in very short duration. Next came preparatory exam. Though I had not prepared too well I managed to write well! I blame the busy project work for this. Finally I finished my practical exams this week. So its the time to sit and study well for the final exam. Its hard to believe that I will be going to college(officially) only for 6 times to write the exam. Exactly next month by this time I would have finished my exams. Will definitely miss the college!!
