Making studying fun...

So I'm studying for the SAP Certified Application Associate Exams... The pattern changed today i.e. May 1st and I really wanna be one of the first in the team to give the exam. But as I try desperately to study and my hands keep wandering to Mozilla Firefox and the Facebook tab, I have to think about the time I had really enjoyed studying...

There were my classes in 10th at Rajesh Study Centre (RSC) when we used to sit at the class all day and study. While one sir kept the doors unlocked for us, the other gave us treats of Samosas (in my case kachori) and soft drinks. Aditi, Sonal and I had a ball studying and chatting.

Then there were the engineering days, be it practicing graphics together or studying for IP, we have gathered at my house and studied... but not before 'Pet Pooja'... Pehle watermelon and then studies...

Then came the MCSE classes (I still can't believe I never gave the final qualifying exam to become MCSE certified... I stopped at 6 exams... can you believe it???)... Staying back after class, playing with the VMWare, making all those images, testing all kinds of crazy scenarios that took our whim...

But, in all honesty, this post is not about all those times... as we went out to Mezza9 to celebrate 3 years of the Campus 1 batch at KPIT(though our batch completes 3 years on 7th May), I got talking to Uday, our trainer, about all the fun we trainees had had. When I had first seen Uday, during the walk-in at Tejas Office, I had thought he was one of the engineers, a young guy like him definitely wasn't a recruiter. I am embarrassed to admit, that I had actually borrowed a pen from him since I had nervously left my pen case (yeah I used to carry one... Manish has even teased me about it being evidence that I was Uday's trainee) in my sack (yeah, I still prefer it to hauling around a purse). Imagine my shock when I walk in with 4 other people and see the same guy talking to a room of almost 50 people. It was later that I knew that he was, indeed, the trainer. 7 days of intense training both technical and V&A and I was a nervous wreck about the first exams. The exams left just about 15 of us with some shifted to the dev training and just a handful in Architecture (that was what BIP was called back then). Then around 6 more joined us for the product training and we were on our way. To cut a long story short our training started on 7th May 2007 and ended on 7th July 2007 (get it.. 7-7-07?) That's just the short of it, but what made it enjoyable was this...

We celebrated everyone's birthday with songs from Yogesh (if you look back through my posts... just search for the name Yogesh and you'll know... he is one incredible singer) and for some reason from me as well... Mimicry(I wonder if anyone remembers the Hyderabadi stand-up)... e-mails on our KPIT group (all sorts of non-sense including a chain mail.. again something you'll find somewhere in the posts)... the servers and workflows lessons with chocolates (needless to say all said chocolates were provided by Parag as it was a rule that whoever called Uday 'Sir' was to get everyone chocolates the next day. Parag had a ready stash of chocolates), the last day i.e. red day and cake cutting, the presentation 4 of us had given as a possible Sales team marketing Business Objects (I remember Manish saying, 'You said you get stage fright? I don't think so') and most importantly, the BOCD presentation that Parag, Sumeet and I had given. That gave us a lesson in presentation, addressing the public at large and in my case an idea of how to keep your mouth moving, making words come out of it and sound sensible even though your knees are shaking and you are on the brink of a panic attack.

The singing, writing on the glass partitions (drawing the workflows... not ruining the glass partitions), listening to music until Uday came back to the training room as we tested all the tasks, the laughter is something that I miss while I study alone today before my computer... Some of my batchmates are still in KPIT, though very few of the then architecture training team remain... just Parag, Nikhil K., Yogesh and I... Atleast 3 have left in 2010 alone...

Of the Campus 1 batch, most are senior engineers, one ASME, one Manager but the fact is, the celebration still is big...

Wishing my Campus 1 batchmates and the two trainers Uday and Manish CONGRATULATIONS on our completing one more year at KPIT... As Anis Sir's e-mail said, Keep Walking...
