Back to School

Visiting St.John the Evangilist High School after ages was obviously a big feeling. I am proud to say that I am proud to be a part of it. I have done my primary and secondary schooling from here(a beautiful journey of 13 years), thus having a emotional feeling towards it. Experiencing the quality, which still looks unchanged I can easily say that this school is known to churn out excellent students. Few upgrades that I saw, while a recent visit for a recommendation letter from school. Reconstruction of the old primary school, it is also developed with a television set in every class.This is a tv set of the Vice-Principal's office. It looks good with everything furbished. More prominently it has never compromised with its assiduous efforts towrds its every representative and name.  Even today i was asked for permission to enter the teachers room. It was lovely to see all the gods around, without their blessings and their auspicious presence I couldn't had achieved things in my life. I hope to see this school reaching its deserved heights when i get my child here for an interview.

My first smartphone

Finally I am God. Why God? well my Guru knows that. Since I passed the OCA(Oracle Certified Associate) dad introduced me to this technology which I would look up at with very high respect.Yes to sum up this phone in a line, Storage for up to 3000 songs, smartphone functionality, an ultra-portable package - and I got what is called as the Nokia N91. Till the craze of Multimedia phones is living around, there was nothing like a heavy weight phone like this. Nokia has actually moved forward with the current technology in its business respect. Also blending it with style of new generation and ease of use factor.

I was at it for OCA(Oracle Certified Associate).All the mates were atleast not less than5-6 years older to me.Considering my first exam outside my academic times, I was alredy nervous. Everything was going good and I was happy to solve each question, thanks to the hard preparations prior to the exam date. I was just to click the result option after completing my Exam and Web Survey, the page could not be displayed.
For more than three hours, we were asked to wait but it still didnt turn up till we were actually asked to leave and to check our results online next day. It was a shocking belief for me when my family and I sat down next day to see my results. I was given 71%, which is just the passing percentage for the developer track. I could easily challenge Oracle and had actually crossed checked my attempted questions, that I was supposed to get atleast not less than 85%. They didnt give me a customized result for the same exam.
It was nothing but a funny instance and a mere disgrace on the part of Oracle.
