Hostel valfi, new format, et al.

Just got over with the hostel valfi. though wasn't tooo exciting as we'd just spent 1 yr in the hostel and 2 yrs in IIT. Not a very senti mood. Although profile reading was fun. But the Chem. junta hadn't given their profiles, hence my profile was read along with the Mech. junta. Ne ways I'd spent more time with the Mech. guys as they were my wingies.

Just the next day, we submitted an abstract to AIChE conference. Hope this stuff gets accepted. Could give me a huge boost in terms of a Ph.D. admission in the US. Recently, the new format for M.Tech. thesis submission was announced. We feel that Prof. Preeti has written the regulations and guidelines. It is visible from the statements where it is said - "Your guide is the best person to advise you on these matters, since she is experienced in writing and reviewing papers." God, I didn't know so many guides were females!! Had this been the other way round, there would have been a cry of gender discrimination. Also, I do not know how many guides from the Chemical Engg. Dept. are reviewers for international journals. Of course, they have a good command on English and writing (most are US returned, hence their GRE should be of help).

My M.Tech. project work should be complete by this weekend. I'm taking a leave for 3 days, as my guide recommened it. Then, when I return, I'll begin with report writing. Should be easy, as I've completed one part of it already and the remaining shouldn't be difficult to complete.

After a looooooong time !!

It's been a long time since I last entered a blog. Lot's of things have happened. We'd been on a trip to Alibagh in mid-April, I've almost completed 80% of my project work and much more.

Basically I was busy with the job interview at GE, Banglore. The good news is that I've been selected as a Research Assistant for a period of one year. After that, I am free to pursue my doctoral degree.

The Alibagh trip was a fantastic one... We freaked out. After a long time, I travelled by sea on a launch boat. The Gateway and Taj appear majestic. I've shot them on my handycam and plan transfer that to the comp. on Sunday. My comp. is currently being tortured. It is running simulations for 12-15 hrs daily with 2-3 hrs break in between. Well, coming back to the Alibagh trip, Nitin was a person worth being with... Ohhhh, he generated so much entertainment for us, I don't know what we would have done if he wasn't there.

The proejct work is now coming to an end... I've to tune a few PID controllers and voila, the project work is over. Then it is only typing the report in the prescribed format. Hope to complete everything by 15th June. Let's see.
