ohammed Sajids Aqueeqa
on the Sunday, 26th
November at the lake side community hall. Almost the entire school
populace turned up to share this happy moment with the parents and family. Manager saa'b had
organised a wonderful daawat
. The biryani
was reported to be of exceptional taste and there
was some great halwa
too. Sajid was so cheerful all throughout. When amit
took him in his
arms he refused to leave! There was one feeling that came to all:
"tum jio hazaroo saal, saal ke din ho pachas hazaar!"
Things hot up as endsem begins
14 November, 2000
ndsemester examinations begin today
with the OOPS paper being held from 5:30 to 8 in the KReSIT class cum lab. This semester
has zoomed past at such a rapid pace! The populace is now busy with
reports, seminars, submissions, night outs and hitting the books for that last ditch
effort that makes all the difference. The absolute trauma of these days when you have
exams and projects and coding and reports is just what we would miss in the coming
days. Not that i am terribly unhappy ;-)
Dr. Suhas Patil visits the school
10 November, 2000
Dr. Suhas Patil, Chairman emeritus of
Cirrus Logic Inc. visited the school on Monday, 6 November. He met the startups in the business
incubator. He also surveyed the school facilities and has promised to be present at the inauguration
of the new school building on the 23rd of December! Earlier in the evening he gave a talk in the
Lecture Theatre about "Preparing to be an Entrepreneur." Words of wisdom flowed and he pointed
the importance of research/PhD programs as a preparation to becoming an entrepreneur! Something I
would carry on from that talk is the appropriateness test to taking decisions.
The Tech-Talk series continues with enthusiastic
participation of the 99 and 2k batches! Last 2 talks in the series were on COM. Speaker being
Srinath (svs[at]it). With an effortless and easy manner, supplementing his explanations with code snippets
Srinath made the topic clear to one and all! There were some rather stupid questions from the junta but
he answered all queries showing a lot of patience. We look forward to more talks from him.
It would be unfair if no mention is made of the
certain mails to mtech99 by the faculty. It reminds me of "Mulliners Buck-u-Uppo"*, and i am sure that
these concerns of the faculty embodied in SMTP would get similar desired effects.

spot! If you are reading this now then rest assured....they are over!

Malaysian warriors are back, no grub!
06 November, 2000
Pats and rvijay are back!
Living in a sea side resort for the days of the conference, it can be safely
stated that they had a great time. But alas no grub for us all! Not even a
morsel of a chocolate or some other exotic malaysian delicacy. We expected better.
There was little doubt ever about their presentation, and they assure this reporter
that it was a breeze.
lackness seems to have crept in the ranks at
SIT!! Even at the peak hours of 2AM now a days not a soul can be found in the labs. Perhaps
this is a new strain of the monday blues, lets call it diwali blues
;-) Things of course are
going to pick up once the populace sees the stormy clouds of endsems and submissions hovering above the not so
Pictures of the trip would be here soon.
Do check in again.
