Well, we were supposed to be studying nd attending trainings for the next 6 weeks , but happening days for us were during these days.
Within a couple of days we formed groups; and this is what we used to do on weekdays-
>>> Plan for a outing. >>> Book cabs from Suresh travels >>> Go out on a road-trips (Weekend)
We visited Kovalam, Kanyakumari, Meenmatti, Allippi, and a few famous temples in Trivandrum…We also used to have fun during regular birthday parties, badminton tournaments, new-year celebration.. We used to go out to our daily adda at the Punjabi dhaba, and have our dinner. (Cant forget those mouth watering parathas)
During the first 25 days; we had fun during these sessions:
Oral and Written Communication(Faculty- Minnet Mathews),
Professional Grooming and Etiquette(Faculty-Nisha Dev) – We had sessions from how to hold a wine glass , how to drink soup, eat cutlets, how to wear a tie, shake hands, postures, till dressing ettiquettes…
We were given an interesting assignment on ‘Book Review’. Minnet had asked us to borrow novels from library and give a presentation on it, which made us read novels during leisure. The actual presentation session was all bonkers hehehh..
Our 1st Phase of 25 day training concluded with an openbook exam (which was relatively easy and almost all scored well since it was an open book exam).
During the second phase of training, batches were allocated with specific streams. And the stream which our batch got allocated to was ‘Mainframes’.
The fun part continued in our second-phase of training though, majorly during our Foreign language classes. Our batch had ‘German’ as our foreingn language. Lecturer: Mr.Arun Kumar, he used to make us laugh all the while during his classes, he taught us the Deutsch language in a a nice way. He used to sing German songs for us, show videos, made us perform skits , and it was total-fun attending his classes. He had a unique way of punishing students like- Ones who come late to his class will have to buy Munch chocolates to the whole class. I had to buy chocs for the entire class once hehheh
I had performed a skit on Munna Bhai (German Version)..me being Cirkit..:)
One not-so-fine day for me, MATC asked us to enter our preferred location for allocation. Unluckily for me, eventhough I had opted for Bangalore as my 1st preferrence, I was allocated to Chennai branch. I felt shattered , since most of my friends had been allocated to Bangalore. Almost 70-80% of the allocation was done as requested, except for a few unlucky ones, including me.

Girl in Orange [Kanchana] was not a part of my team..shes just posing..:-)
During the last 2 weeks, we were divided into teams of 4. Each team had to work on different project assignments. We spent sleepless nights working on the project, chatting and laughing along sometimes almost whole night.
Finally we gave us our second exam, presented our project, had photo sessions, send off parties, and thats it..
We bid adeau to the most wonderful moments spent at ILP. Off we dispersed to different parts of India. Me to Chennai..
