Be a man of Deeds! Not a man of Needs!

On 16th November, 2005 we started to Bangalore for a Poster presentation on our research project at the Intel India Student Research Contest. We took the Mysore Express from Madurai Jn in a two tier AC coach (since Intel gave us reimbursement for the forward and onward journey we spent less time to worry about our travelling cost :)). Sri Ranjani and myself went for the presentation on the topic "Security in LAN through Autonomic Computing". On 17th NOv,2005 we reached Bangalore and were given accomodation in Hotel Ashoka Residency. Since our college had the maximum number (13 teams) of teams in the presentation, we were given shared accomodation with our college mates. Shanker Vinay Arul(BE,Mechatronics), Naganathan(ME,Production), VijayKumar(ME,CommSystems) and myself were given a double bedroom room in the hotel. On the same day we went to the Intel India Office which was in the Outer ring road at Bangalore and there we attended many seminars. We had a chance to listen to a lecture by Frank Jones, President Intel India. In the afternoon after lunch we were given separate display boards in which we placed our posters for display. These posters illustrated the idea of our project and the entire design of what we are proposing. It was a big competiton with teams from almost all the IITs, NITs, BITS and almost all the well known universities. We stood at our stalls and the employees of Intel came to our stalls and interested people were enquiring about the projects description. Each team was assigned a Intel mentor. For our team the Intel Mentor is Mr.Kothandaraman Rengarajan who is a very dynamic person, and helped us in coming out with ideas of how to design our posters and improve our projects scope. He conducted telephone conferences before we made to this presentation at Bangalore.

Hmmm, I remember November 2nd, 2005. Sivaprakash, Selvamurugan, Muruga Prasad (these 3 guys are my friends) and myself were just having a bike ride in the Tanjore NH, near NIT (National Institute of Technology) Trichy at around 7:30 pm. I was sitting behind Siva in his bike (splendor), the other two guys were going in front of us (Muruga was driving) in a CRUX. When we were in front of NIT there were two buses in front of us trying to overtake each other. In order to be safe Siva made his way out of the road. Thats it, the road was full of small pebbles there... then the bike skidded and within a fraction of a second we were lying with the bike above us :) We fell to our right and I got scratches all over my left hand and leg (am still wondering how it happened).

On 25-08-2005 and 26-08-2005, I had an opportunity to stay at Karunya
Institute of Technology. It is really very pleasant and cool to be
there. Sri Ranjani and myself went to participate in various
competitons in Opzione'05. Opzione is the symposium organised by
Association of Computer Engineers (ACE as they call). We went to
participate in Paper and software presentation, fortunately we
cleared the prelims for quiz and we had an opportunity to take the
quiz also.

One interesting thing which urged us to put our efforts to go for
Karunya was their poster, which laid emphasis on Open Source

It became one of the unforgettable moments in my life, my visit to
Sethu Institute of Technology [SIT]. The reason behind this is simple,
I was honoured as one of the delegates in SIT. I got a call from Joe
Steeve the previous day ie., on Sunday night asking me to join with
the team which comes to SIT the following day to give a talk on

On Monday [08-08-2005], I went to hotel Supreme, Madurai to meet Joe
and the team. I could see four people there, discussing something
seriously about GNU/Linux in Madurai. I went inside and joined the
discussion. Sometime later we were taken in a car to SIT campus. I

We went for a paper presentation at Velammal, conducted as a part of
the symposium of Department of Computer Science and Engineering. They
have named it as "Pegasus'05" (what a nice name). The very attractive
thing in this name is not just this, the logo which they have designed
for it, they say it as a "Unicorn Horse" (the second logo which I
admired the most in my life). This college is situated some where near
Redhills road, near Ambattur in Chennai.

We were allowed to use their college bus. Sri Ranjani and myself went
for participating in the paper presentation. We also had plans in
