First day at work.

So today was my first day at work. The beginning of a software engineer’s professional career. Introductions were made, plans were laid out and we broke bread together. A rather pleasant and enjoyable beginning even though repeated references were made to how difficult the next three months of our lives were going to be.

The ex-trainees were invited to the party too. They seemed satisfied, confident and determined so that’s a good sign. The teaching faculty was friendly and it seemed like they knew what they were talking about. It was made quite clear that nothing but your performance, hard work, and dedication would ensure that you were left standing at the end of the three months.

I’ll mostly be working with Microsoft CRM and C#.NET, which will be included in the three month training along with english, applied mathematics, flowcharting, C, HTML (Nope, it’s not over yet!), CSS, Javascript and ASP.NET.  You might be wondering, “Isn’t that a lot to cover in three months?”. That’s one of my concerns too, but we’ll see how this goes.

Eight hours of  classes, six days a week for three months. No holidays except for the Sundays.  Miss a day at work, or fail to finish your homework(which is expected to be handed out everyday) and you forfeit that day’s pay.

These three months are going to be hard…but you know what? I’m looking forward to it.

Air India distributes Chinese earphones.

I don’t know about you guys, but I find it ironic (not to mention a bit weird) that Air India distributes Chinese earphones. It’s not like there aren’t Indian companies making cheap earphones.

Maybe it’s just me.

Aizwal, Mizoram, India

I was at Aizwal for a couple of days from the 9th of April with my dad. Aizwal is the capital of the state of Mizoram, which is one of the seven sister states in India.

Since we were there only a couple of days, there was not a lot that we could see. The city itself is very beautiful and has a very unique layout. We were staying at the Assam Rifles officers mess which was right in the middle of the city. Standing on the balcony of our room we could see the whole city laid out around us. The city is laid out a lot similar to how a football field is. We were at the center, like a player surrounded by spectators, but slightly elevated. I think a diagram would describe the scene better.
