TecUthsav '09 with seniors

Yet another rememberable day ! TecUthsav’ 09 (a national level symposium) of IT department of our college (TCE) conducted on 17/02/2009

i m happy that i too was one among the panellist worked for ITunleashed event. Though I know few seniors I don’t have any kind of interaction like this before this was good. It was a very good experience working with our senior especially naga akka , head for ITunleashed event. She was very polite and very inspiring with the way she talked with contestants and with way she managed to conduct the whole event. With a smile too. :) Wonderful character! I learned a lot from her traits. Thanks to that akka (Nagalakshmi). And few other coordinator seniors like alagapan , murali, sai and many. Good cooperation given by all my friends’ ramkumar, sathes, senthil, venky, anish, dinesh & some 2year junior friends.

I thought of narrating it all the incidents but I make it short. I reached college soon went to hostel after having breakfast at canteen. Took some snaps & then with red tied ramkumar started to the department. But went to k S auditorium as sunder anna called there. The inauguration function supposed to start. After some time it started Hod , Abhai kumar sir also talked about the recession.Our chief guest was Dr.Kumar Padmanab senior research assistant of Infosys. He gave speech on his areas of wireless sensors. we ( ram & myself ) went to our dept lab in the middle for that event.

Viduran(viduka) was there and 4 contestants were there writing there round-1 (i don’t know how luckily they missed the inaugural fn) then we joined ITunleashed crew. Inauguration was too long....When the function was completed with the entire contestant our web development lab overflowed. I m sure that only our dept had most of participants (than other) nearly 100 members turn up! I helped filling some registration works and gave some instructions to the participants.

Fun starts from here on. Some participants had no pens to write the answers ....we are pulled in to situation where we have to sacrifice all our pens... Somehow managed with the spares one we have got. Of which most of them were naga akka's ! lol ! Even ram missed his sister gifted pen. At a point of time viduka too was searching his favourite pen. Thank god i didn’t miss my red tinted Reynolds Jetter pen presented by dad. That not just a pen full of ink but it was full of love and affection!

Then I helped in sending sms to selected list of candidates and preparing rank list for next round somehow prelims concluded but beyond scheduled. Our friends along with me prepared the systems for round 2. Meanwhile we (ram & me ) sneaked through to get our lunch..Ah we were lucky enough to have lunch as it was about to close. Even naga akka was come for lunch only when we were eating. I was very hungry as I missed morning refreshments’ too. Then went back to lab, meanwhile we also went to take groups photo (most of the boys were there). I don’t know what’s wrong with girls as they were not present. Left there & then joined back. Surprise final was a surprise for us as none know about that round whether offstage or onstage. It was supposed to be conducted in K.S.Auditorium but all of a sudden change in decision from onstage to off stage. It was conducted at one of the A halls and I was doing some writing work there. Then I joined to see the cultural programs as the well final round was done. As it was getting late I left in the middle.

We are planning to conduct all the competitions in cleaner manner next year with all well equipped to face any situation as everything will be computerized!!
Yet another joyful day!!
