The days which i never get,the friends with whom i shared all my happiness and sadness
and the college which showed me a path for the future.All those fun filled memories of 4 years of
my Engineering life left tears in my eyes on the last day of my college life..........
I did my Electrical And Electronics Engineering(EEE) at SASTRA UNIVERSITY during the year(2004-2008).
Our college is located exactly on the highway between trichy(Tiruchirapalli) and
Thanjavur.Around 35kms from Trichy and 17kms from thanjavur.First of all i like to say about
Thanjavur and Trichy.Generally i mostly preferTrichy than going to thanjavur.You can say that
thanjavur is just 17kms whereas trichy is double than that.The main reason is that, in thanjavur
there are 2 bus stands (new bus stand and old bus stand).To go to Thanjavur first we have to
get down at new bus stand and we have to hire another bus to old bus stand.In new bus stand
we cannot find anything except Arya Vilas(Veg Hotel). If we want to go for shopping or movies
or temple certainly we have to reach old bus stand.In thanjavur i used to visit 2 places
frequently.1)Brahadeeshwara Temple(Temple Of God) 2) Sathar's(Temple Of Food).Thanjavur
is mainly famous for Brihadeeshwara Temple(Lord SHIVA). A nice tourist place
to visit.Whenever i like to have lunch or dinner outside along with my friends we always choose
Sathar's(A good non-veg restaurant).
Let's come to Trichy.It is a good Industrial Town.If Chennai is not the capital of
Tamil Nadu, the 2nd chance will go for Trichy.From our college it will take exactly one hour to
reach trichy.Srirangam temple and Rock fort temple were famous in this place.For every
semester holidays we used to board a train very often from Trichy than Thanjavur."Banana
Leaf" an another good non-veg restaurant in Trichy.This is all about my college neighbouring
towns(Thanjavur and Trichy).There is so much to tell about these places, if i do so then we can
publish one book itself for these two places.....

Welcome to my college,this is how the lettering at my college gate entrance looks like.Actually
iam from Andhra Pradesh and i scored 89.3% in the intermediate state board and based on that
percentage i got EEE in this college.
B_TECH First Year---------
I heard a lot about ragging in engineering colleges before getting admission in this college.I
was ragged on the first day of my college life.In my college, tamilians will be ragged by tamil
seniors,north indians by north indian seniors and andhra guys by telugu seniors.I was ragged in
a single room by nearly 10 to 15 seniors surrounded me. I cannot forget that day.Everyone says
that ragging should be prohibited,but only through ragging we can have good contact with
seniorsI cried on that day when i got ragged,later they helped me in many aspects by giving me
studymaterials and also by helping me in tough situations.
In our college, for every year there will be 2 semesters, and for
each semester there are 3 mid sems(internals) and for every subject two best internals will
considered for our end sem. In my first year we got only 2 mid sems. we are unlucky that we
have to attemp those two mid sems compulsorily.
My room mates were Swanand(andy),Niraj,Siddhanth,rajiv
kumar pandey(BABA)...We used to stay in SPS(sandipanisadan),C-203.(C-central wing).In my
first year i used to study a lot and enjoy a little.I used to get tensed for even small small
assignments.Till now i can remember those night outs during exams.I can still remember my
deadliest paper Engineering Drawing(ED). I used to practise a lot for ED during exams.As my
name starts with "A",iam always no.1 in my class.I used to sit at the back bench along with Rahul
and Alapan.Some how i completed my first year with CGPA 7.67..
B-Tech Second Year-----------
I stepped into my second year of my engineering, the first thing for which iam happy is that
i became a senior,but i didn't rag much.In the second year i stayed along with alapan in
AV(Ananda Vihar).I don't remember the room number exactly.This time our college started
implementing 3 mid-semesters for every semester.
In this sem,i struggled a lot with "ELECTRICAL MACHINES".I used to bunk some exams during mid semesters but some how
i managed to write two mid sems for every subject.In the 2nd yr i started playing cricket and i was lucky to be a member
of the team named "ENCHANTING EAGLES".This team didn't survive for a long time.I used to open the innings along with
Praneeth( a good batsman).I came out of the team at the end of 3rd semester.I can remember that during exams time myself
and my roomie Alps used to watch movies in his system by holding a book in our hands at early mng 2:00 am when the exam
is at 9:00am in the mng.we used to sleep at 3:00am and wake up again at 6:00am.I used to enjoy a lot in the second
year.At the end of second yr iam still a seven point some one.
B-Tech Third Year-------------
In third year,during 6th sem i used to stay in sps along with Vineel,Gopi and Santhanam.Later i shifted
to New hostel.In New hostel i used to stay along with Saketh,Santhanam,Gopi.In the third year i used to
study Sidney Sheldon novels a lot and i became a great fan of sidney sheldon.My neighbouring room mates were Rajan,
Santosh, Satish,Jaasim.we used to have combined studies during exams.Again i started playing cricket along with them
which i left in 2nd year.We didn't form any team,but every evening after college we used to play casually.In this year
our EEE department organised an industrial visit to Bangalore and Ooty.We have enjoyed this a lot.We visited Wonderla in Bangalore.
I used to sit along with nataraj and alapan at the back bench in the class.I used to write lyrics during the class hours
It's time to decide the future.Campus Placements are ahead.I used to worry a lot about these placements.

STill a SEVEN point Someone................
B-TECH Fourth Year-----------
The last and final year of Engineering Life...This time i stayed along with Alapan in AV.We two used to spend
most of the time in watching movies.I don't know how many movies i watched during my engineering...it will be in hundreds..
In the seventh semester we have gone for a trip to MUNNAR, Cochin and Alleppey.Really its a nice trip and we have enjoyed
a lot.(Swanand,Ashwin,Nataraj,Saketh,Sooraj,Santosh Raja,Prasad and me).
The last and final semester, 8th semester..time to do project work.I did my project in ECIL
Hyderabad along with Nishanth and Bharath.Our project time is just one month.Nishanth almost
sacrificed his life for
this project work.We did our project on "Nuclear Reactor Regulating System".This is just a study
project.Our college didn't allow study study projects.But all credit goes to Nishanth and Bharath
as they converted this study pjt to practical
one by using MATLAB. Ima just a spectator.During that one month in Hyderabad we enjoyed a lot instead of doing pjt work
We had a regular attendance at IMAX and RTC complex theatres......finally pjt work is completed and again we are back to college.
In this final sem we had a big trip to Kanya kumari,Rameshwaram and Madurai(members:Nataraj, shashadhar,
Saketh,Bharath,Kashyap,Nishanth and me).I enjoyed that trip................
Atlast our end semester exams were almost near.We had a farewell party and for the second time in college life
tears came from my eyes....i don't know why.....At that moment i cannot able to control my tears..Our class
members had a small party at the canteen......tat's the end of farewell day........
finally end sem exams were over.....and iam still
A SEVEN POINT SOME ONE WITH CGPA OF 7.36
All andhraites of final year celebrated a big party at "parisutham Hotel" in Thanjavur before departing.....
finally we departed.........................................................................................
