The MFRP @ Best

The training that I experience here in Cognizant is good, after clearing all those modules I was waiting for the MFRP final review. At the first review our team was not able to perform well because we were not working as a team. It was more a single handed project, it was regarded as structured but not Object oriented programming by our Mentor these comments made us realize that we are struck deep and in dark.

In the extension or the final phase of project we followed agile methodology in which I played as Business Analyst / Tester. Predominantly I was to be involved in resolving bug, code analysis and design, but nothing stopped me from helping in coding. I worked on bringing a program with BLOB data type that could handle all binary formats and a new theme/look for our project to make the interface look cool. I accomplished both the task on time with sincere guidance from Yusuf and Viswa (the two M.Tech grads in my batch with extensive practical knowledge).

Starting my real work late I had to take the code home to analyse it for good standard and performance, got the exact version of SDE which we use in office from my organization's internal site it is no sin our organization allow it as is a opensource. But the problem was when the code which was perfect started malfunctioning by opening on new windows instead of staying on the same, simple solution was to use the unorganized code. Anyway we rectified the problem on the new code after the final review.

On the day of review every team was giving their high, as our performance just meet the requirement in phase one he might not expect much from us, that gave us an edge that even small initiation will strike him big! Exactly that happen we presented our project as third/last team, I thought since he was getting busy on calls he will not look much into the code goodness we are saved that he did not find that we use code with zero standard.

Mentor complimented that we worked a long way to get to the standard of other teams, it was a small sentence but did matter a lot. He even complemented our batch with a appreciation mail, which is rare like only 1 batch out of 15 will get this kind of mail. He said we, our batch has set a new benchmark in performance level of MFRP. All this time my batch, SWADRUTHA was regarded as a notorious batch in academy but now we get a good response and respect from academy, faculty team.

Up and Close with Sudalai Madan: The Encounter

Night of 13th April all the preparations for the rituals were done in the temple, Sudalaimadam swamies idol was decorated with flowers and fruits and coconuts dedicated to the lord reached above his chest.My cousin Sudalai muthu, senior priest of the shrine reached home by late night got blessings of his father Late Shanmugam Sundaram and blessed the family members in 8x10 room dedicated for God, then started towards the temple. There peoples in huge number were waiting for the Sudalaimada swamy's arrival. Different rituals were offered by people to the Lord in order to get the blessings. As its is believed Sudaimada swamy, son Lord Siva used to consume meat in Kailash for this reason he is sent to earth were he can satisfy his earthy hunger there by not polluting Kailash.



Offering meat to Sudalaimadan is the most important and an watchful event in the festival. Many devotees offer their goat & pig so as to please the lord and get his blessings. That midnight Sudalaimada swamy …

why do people sweat more in chennai???

One of the famous ornament of chennai is its summer!. Everyone here would have at least once talked about its effect and the way they affected. People comes out with sweats flowing from the body is the usual scene of chennai noon. The sweat produced is not just due to the temperature of the region. It is in fact due to the high humidity of chennai.

To explain this lets see a fact, people in chennai sweats more than the people in delhi where the temperature is higher than the former.

This is because of chennai's location. Chennai is located near sea due to which sea water evaporation is high during summer which in turn increases the humidity (Amount of water vapour present in air).
Normally human blood temperature is about 35 deg Celsius. If the outside temperature is more than that, then our system tries to automatically cools down by releasing sweat from the body.

The sweat which is released cools the surrounding heat by converting into vapour thereby reducing the body temperature…

Training @ Cognizant

I received my Date of Joining mail on 16 Oct 2011, I was so happy that finally I got that. I was the only one from my college to get the mail to report on that particular day so I went pretty much alone. I reported in MEPZ on Oct 20th from the next Monday my training began in Siruseri. I was able to spot many people who studied with me in school on the first day of Induction.
Initially I was placed in customized batch then was moved to Advance JAVA or J2EE in a generic term. I got pinned to IME vertical that handles clients related to Information, Media and Entertainment domain.We were trained in batches of 24, curse or charm I got into a batch with 20 girls! Whatever it didn't last for long, I was pretty much comfortable after getting out of it. My school was co-ed but classes were separate for boys and girls never mind 8th and 12th grades, where I was put into co-ed classes because I'm a good boy :P In college I remember studying together with girls nope remember seeing girls…
