Web Club Recruitments, 2008-09 @NITK

With Odd Sem comes the recruitment season- Recruitment for Final year- Placements and Club Recruitment for the Second years. For Final years it much more important and significant but thats the not the case with second years. Coming to the Club recruitment in our college- People have mixed response for these recruitment. Some say its all fixed and not fair, where as some (Very, Very few) say its fair and transparent. I will not waste my time writing about the other clubs. I will be writing about Web Enthusiast’s Club- The club where i got into after getting rejected πŸ™ from all the clubs last year πŸ˜‰

Coming to this year’s Web Club recruitments- I couldn’t attend the first round interviews as i had to attend the Sun CA Induction programme in Bangalore. I was eagerly waiting for the Recruitment to begin- This would give us a chance to know about the second years. We had the first round b4 any other club had organised- This got us a good response. People were shortlisted based on the enthu, technical knowledge and other abilities. Some 40 odd were shortlisted for second round interviews, which were scheduled after a week from first round.

A post after a long time- Back to College!!

Its been almost a week i posted something up on my blog. I haven’t yet got an internet connection at my room in college πŸ™ hope the LAN in my block is restored at the earliest. I will now have to depend on college LAN which was not the case few days back. Yeah i am back to college for my 5th sem. Feels some what great to tell that one is in 3rd Year πŸ™‚ I will, in a nutshell, write about a week at hostel after 3 months of comfortable stay at home. Starting from the day i left for college which was 11th July night- Had a tough time reaching the bus stand carrying loads of luggage. By the time i reached bus stand my arms had become “Rock Hard” and were “Shivering” – Thanks to the tonne heavy Suitcase which i carried all the way from main Road into the Bus station. I was drenched in sweat as if i had a bath and came out running directly to the bus stand. Fortunately i met my friend at the stop, asked him to look after my luggage and went to see if my bus had come and to my bad luck it was delayed by Half an hour. The bus left at 10:30 PM which was scheduled to leave at 10:00 PM. Traveling in Airavatha is a “bliss” πŸ™‚

Children- How important are they for the World?

One hundred years from now,
It will not matter,
What kind of car I drove,

What kind of house I lived in,
How much I had in my bank,
Nor what my clothes looked like.

One hundred years from now,
It will not matter,
What kind of school I attended,
What kind of typewriter I used,
How large or small my church.

But the world may be. . .
A little better because. . .
I was important in the life of a child.

Please Help!!! Pass me in the exam :(

After the announcement of SSLC (Class 10 in Karnataka Board of Education) and PU (Class 12 in Karnataka Board of Education) examinations, students have become frenetic after seeing their marks. There have been lots of applications requesting photocopies of answer sheets and for revaluations. Many have complained that evaluators are negligent while evaluating the answer scripts. There have been cases where the evaluators haven’t totaled correctly or the marks are entered incorrectly in the Marks list or some answers haven’t been checked. Amidst these confusions, there are many many students who have secured high marks after the revaluation.

I read in Bangalore Mirror dated 5th July that there are certain instances where students have applied for revaluation in spite of literally not writing anything. Imagine the plight of the evaluators. The report has quoted three incidents out of the many which have come into light after the revaluation results were announced.
