It was a fantastic time of nearly 4 years of our engineering studies. It is a purely a personal memory that I want to share with you. It was the day October 25, 2004 we all came together, then we made friendship, fought with each other, witnessed love, saw affection, showed our unity in fighting with lecturers, went on strike against the college, we enjoyed, made merry, now departing with a heavy heart.


As I know, every one had a common thought; we had done a great mistake by taking admission in this college. We never been proud of our college, but we were always proud of our class. We felt sad on the college, at the same time we are happy because we got nice friends.


Many used to tell there are groups in my class. I strongly oppose this opinion. We worked as single group many time. We fought with the college; we argued with the director, we made some lecturers to leave the college; we left our struggle when we found it will never improve. We had unity; it gave us strength to go against anything that is bad for our class. Why it made some to think we have different group was difference in the way of enjoying. Apart from this we were rocking biotech people.


We were about 28 in the beginning. Every year we missed few friends due to useless VTU rules, we also got new friends due to the same rules. Supporting this I should tell you story: There was a friend who was always telling stories of other friends in Shole format. He refused to sign on the letter we all wrote against a lecturer because he was giving him good marks in internal. The same lectures gave him NSSR and left the college. Another friend, sometimes feel like an enemy we missed in starting of 3rd year had a lengthy story like a TV serial with mixture of sentiment to sex.


We were mixture of cultures and characters. We had a great Krishna Bhakthe who was a pure vegetarian in the class; she was good friend of a nice guy of completely different culture Muzzu who never misses his prayer also a lover of nonveg foods. These things were never a matter of our friendship. We had many strange characters: first person in attendance sheet was me; it’s not good to comment on myself J (Please take light)

Bindu had a mixture of Indo-US Culture, a great believer of God during exam and results.

Deepak, a good dealer of any thing from cabs to go for a trip to mobile phones, hence he was Deal Machaa.

Gaurav was a expert in all matters study materials to porn sites, so Guruji of all matters.

Karthik, my ultimate room mate from beginning to end was a live cartoon.

Dirty joke expert now an IITan Raju, we proud of you

Bun butter jam was staple food for Om.

Vasant never studies, but he knows everything, because he practices writing the answers.

BMTC’s most wanted Sourabh, never paid for bus ticket.

24 hour yawning machine, Swathi. I can’t mention every one…


We had good lecturers; we had big brain in our class. Though, we couldn’t achieve something. Our beloved HoD Dr Manohar Shinde was the great scholar we have ever seen. Unfortunately we missed him in the last semester. He was the most respected person for his friendly nature and his knowledge. We were so happy when we got our seniors as lecturers. Adithya was a good friend, guide and lecturers. We were calling him Sir outside the college, Adi inside the class!! Let us pray god; he may get enough strength to come out of the grief.


Friends, wish you all reach your goal, get a great success in your life. Love you and miss you all…


World Environment day special

Uttara Kannada, a green district located in Western coastal region of Karnataka has many power generating stations including one nuclear power plant. The major hydro electric power stations include Gerusoppa, Supa, Kadra, Kodasalli etc. The whole Supa taluk has been vanished under the Kali water. Thousands of hectares of forests have been lost during these projects. Thousands of acres of forest cut down to build Kaiga Nuclear Power Plant. Hundred of acres of green forests were vanished for high tension electric lines to supply power to nearby cities (See ). Recently they successfully opposed Tadri thermal power plant, which could be harmful to both flora and fauna of this region. Right now this district is lightning millions of houses.

But… do you know… there is no proper power supply to this district. There was minimum 6 hours official load shedding was there in this summer. There was no power for weeks even in major villages for weeks. There are number of villages where there is no power supply from the electric board.

I’m sure, if you save a little power in your daily life it is more than enough to light theses houses, because their electricity demand is very less. The power that can be saved by common person in Bangalore can light the whole district for weeks. Also we can check some more power plants which will spoil our environment. I’m following these measures to save power, I wish, I hope you will also join with me to save power, save environment.

Air conditioners: Check and clean the air conditioner’s filter once a month; make sure the air conditioning unit is the proper size for the room it is cooling; locate the air conditioner on the north or east side of a house in a shady area; ventilate the house’s attic to reduce heat build-up; install ceiling fans to improve air circulation.

Dishwashers: Wash only a full load; turn off drying cycle, open door to air dry dishes.

Washing machines and dryers: Use only with a full load; use warm or cold water, reserving hot water use only for heavily soiled clothes; use only full loads for the dryer and if a second load is necessary, dry that load immediately after the first to retain as much heat as possible; clean lint filter before each load.

Computers: Turn off computers when not in use or set the computer to energy-saving mode.

Lights: Replace incandescent bulbs with screw-in fluorescent bulbs, which use 75 per cent less electricity and last at least 8 times longer; turn lights off when not needed; install light dimmers or photoelectric switches that automatically turn off lights during daylight or install timers to control use of lights; for lights used for home security, install motion detectors so lights come on only when motion is detected.

New appliances: Replace aging appliances with new, more energy-efficient models when possible.

Ovens and hobs: Use microwave instead of oven where possible; food in glass dishes can be cooked at lower temperature; preheating oven is usually unnecessary; on the stove top cook with covered pans and match pan size to the size of the burner.

Refrigerators: Check door seals to make sure there are no air leaks; clean condenser coils on the back of the refrigerator; keep refrigerator away from oven or dishwasher and give the unit breathing room; turn thermostat down to 3°C (37°F); turn on energy saver switch.

Water heaters: Use thermostats and timer controls to regulate your central heating and hot water supply wherever possible; lower the hot water heating setting to 50 to 55°C (120 to 130°F); insulate the water heater and any exposed hot water pipes; use low-flow shower heads.
