Coming back the Bangalore Way!

After being away from the cyber world for more than a year, for various reasons :P , decided to write down again, in my as usual broken English and logic less thoughts.

This summer it was to be Bangalore, and so I thought why not just start with my experience here. The following is the essay, the company CEO, where I am currently an Intern, had asked us to submit this though we forgot to submit , I decided  to post it here;


Bangalore, a city for the youth, has given me a very good exposure both to my technical field and also to my travel experience. The culture of the city is totally youth centered, with the numerous fast food joints and the pubs to hang out in. The traditional culture is also not lost here, there are temples and many a traditional cuisine restaurants.

The fact that Bangalore is the cradle of careers in the IT sector is another advantage. To see so many companies in the IT sector and exponentially more working in those companies, was itself an enriching thought. Though the silicon valley of India, the exposure is just not only limited to the IT sector, but also to various heavy industries, aerospace industries, and of course entrepreneurship.  The most striking thing that I loved in Bangalore is the number new and upcoming companies. Many entrepreneurs come down to Bangalore to kick start their ideas. With so much of exposure this a great place to start one’s professional life.

On the threshold of career choices I think this internship will go a long way to develop a perspective on the kind of work I want to do. Moreover this provides exposure to the real world of application development. Till now, in the 3 weeks that just flew by, we have managed to learn quite a many things, starting from the idea of planning an application, to how understand what the user requires. From hearing about new technologies, to implementing those technologies. Apart from the technical stuff, also enjoying every moment in the office, working as a team, and eating away those chocolates in the fridge. And of course, the lunches with the CEO.

My experience in Bangalore, has been a variety of new adventures in only 3 weeks. Of the high end super powered cars and of the equally great motorcycles. Of the Comic Con India, and of the high end Malls. The fact that this city is in India, seems to be vague when you land up in the much hyped M.G. Road. With so many showrooms of various brands, and the never dying spirit of the crowd, the place has a buzz every time there. With malls dotting the skyline and pubs dotting the ground, the spirit of Bangalore can be seen there.

In the past 3 weeks of experience am loving Bangalore! The prospect of ending up here next year is starting to look good. All in all, a great new chapter in my life.

Well that was formal part of the story, in the 5 weeks that I have been here, the experiences have increased a lot, and so I guess now I get something to bore about in the blog. 

With many a formal and informal experiences, let's just I will be back to haunt everyone.

Bhai Dhuj

Asta va Lista!

Couple of months just flew by, it seems like I was in college, and had just got the news of my internship offer, was getting the famous GPLs, and now I am at 35,000 ft. in turbulence, on my return flight. We had worked around 50 working days and I still can’t understand where they went. All in all it was a very fun experience, with the very friendly colleagues at the office and the best CEO anyone can ever have.  The office experience was so great that it inspired me to dream of opening such an office with such a great atmosphere, and one day take interns the same way our CEO had.
Technically learnt a lot, especially how to design and estimate an application. Got my hands dirty with PHP and made a relationship of life with Javascript. From Fuelphp, to Jquery got to learn the importance of frameworks. Got to learn how the clients demand and how what might be simple to implement can get pretty tough in the end. The User Interface is so important that was a very great news for me, as I lo…

"Thiobacillus Ferrooxidans"

My whole gang had BioTech as the  open elective , so I aslo joined them despite the fact that I  loathed biology to the core of my heart as much as I hated Liverpool or Spain (The football team i.e.).

The Biotech experience started off with a couple of  ' GPLs ' ( at the hostel) from my IT mates....!!
The first day of the class itself  I was late and made to sit in the first row. And had a nice sleep.

In the week itself the IT dept made its mark by being called from the last row to the first row for shouting and disturbing in the class, alas  I missed out on that.
The first day of the class I heard something about "thiobacillus ferrooxidans" and till the end of the syllabus I just know one thing about mineral biotech that there is a bacteria namedthiobacillus ferrooxidans, and it is used for some mineral extraction. That was the last day that I had heard anything in class or remember anything about BT-430 syllabus.

We had some great experiences in the BT-30 class w…
