* What is yours?

Nothing is truly yours, except your own experiences.

Out here in my country, I see a lot of signs that read,

“This land is our land; hands off government”. Of course, I know what they
mean, but the fact is that nobody owns the land. “ownership” is a
fairy tale we tell ourselves so that humans don’t
harm each otherfor use of things.

But the truth is, nobody own the land – not a inch of it. When my
very short tenure on this planet is thr
ough, the land will remain.

If I pass down my land to my Next generation, someday they too will go. The land will remain.

But our experiences never leave us. War. Floods. Meteor crashes.
Nothing can take away our experiences. And when we go, we take them
with us.

For my money (Can I call it “MY”?), I would rather have dozens of
wonderful experiences that are all mine, than dozens of wonderful
things that never will be.


* My B.E final Semester Project

If you guys are looking for anything Technical from this post then please leave cos the depth in which I have explained the concept will not be understood by you. Others please proceed from the second paragraph.

Title: Multiple Routing Configurations for Fast IP Network Recovery

Team size: 4 No

Platform: DOT NET


As the internet takes an increasingly central role in our communications infrastructure, the slow convergence of routing protocols after a network failure becomes a growing pro

blem. To assure fast recovery from link and node failures in ip networks, we present a new recovery sc

heme called multiple routing configurations (MRC). Our proposed scheme guarantees recovery in all single failure scenarios, using a single mechanism to handle both link and node failures, and without knowing the root cause of the failure.

Project member:

We were asked to have 4 members per project. The search for the member began long back in 7th semester itself. All good guys joining with good guys and the bad[bad in studies] guys were left alone. But I was lucky to get some great networking expert in my group. My teammate includes Sammy, Mannish, Leander and myself (Name changed). We four guys were the best networking student you will get in 4th year CSE batch of 2010.

Me, myself have studied the same networking paper for 3 semesters, so it was my "area of interest". We sat together in class in the last bench with other bright student (company people). Most of the teacher didn't know our names and other who knew would never mention that. So we were very happy group. But all of a sudden mannish had to leave the team cos he was chucked out of college by Ninan john (Fondly known as sadist) . We missed him a lot cos he was the only guy who had a computer with Windows XP installed and was the most knowledgeable and also my roommate and a good friend. So now we were left with just me from Bihar , Leander from Tamil Nadu and Sammy from Andhra. Manish and Leander were also my

Roommate for 2 years in college.

"What should be our Project title?"

So the first Task was over. Now we needed a project title. Initially we decided to do some easy, simple project. But my Roommate and my friend Leander came with a plan to do networking project since his sister was a teacher in networking department in my college. He said she will help us and take care of all that is required and she would also help us in the reviews and other assignment since she was his sister. So we thought to take the project named "Multiple Routing Configurations for Fast IP Network Recovery". We had no idea what it meant, but were happy cos his sister was there. But guess what, nothing happened like Leander promised.

Project Guide:

Next was to search for a Project Guide, and to our luck we got a guide who knew nothing about what we were doing. Our Project guide was Angeline (not Jeeva Flora, the other one). After seeing our project title and the way we talked, she was so impressed that she wanted us to get the "Best Project Award” HA. Our senior never told us that there was an option to buy the project from the market. We came to know about this trade very late.

Project Center:

Finally we came to know a place from where we could actually buy the project. It was Acentre Technology in Gandhipuram, Coimbatore. Our Trainer was a Young white lady, and we loved that place. I and Leander have been there just 4 times. She explained us the project in Tamil. I didn't understand the language but Leander used to shake his head as though everything was understandable to him. When back in Hostel he won't be able to explain us anything.

0th(zeroth) Review :

The first Review went on well cos the superstar teacher of my Dept Mr Manimurgan and Mr Vivek were the questioner. Manimurgan:He asked a student in viva the full form of XML, reply was extensible markup lanuage..mani sir said "starting is X man" and he failed him. Vivek : During mini project his statement was "mini project is OPTIONAL but COMPULSORY" meditate on this. So with the help of such great teacher we cleared the zeroth review.

1st Review:

Let me introduced to you Mr Immanuel, networking expert. We hated him. After Zeroth we had lot of time. The only work we would do is go to college, give our attendance, eat well in the mess and sleep. Only when someone tells us that tomorrow is your review our tails would be on fire.

The first question Immanuel asked us was “what is Routing?”. That is the title of our project. Leander looked at Sammy and Sammy reciprocated by looking at me and i had no one else to look at.So we were kicked out. And were given 2 days time to prepare and present again.

2nd Review:

Second review went even bad. We were made to wait in the corridor for 2 days with our laptop in hand running behind Immanuel so that he can take our review. Finally after 2 days of waiting he gave us time in the evening to present our project. He saw our slide and asked “Why is your first line font different from second line font?" i said sir since i prepared the slide in the night, i made a mistake. For this statement the Immanuel got angry and kicked us out. sammy would say " this is the most ****** up situation in life". We just wanted the review to get over so that the pressure is off. We were least bothered about the mark. But Immanuel wouldn't allow us.

Final Review and the mark:

The final review went on very well. cos we were prepared for the worst after facing Immanuel for last 2 review. And we got a pretty decent mark too.

Today when i look back i don’t regret for not being in a good group where i could have don't a real nice project. But I i truly enjoy those situation. I am thankful to Mannish, Leander and Sammy for making me a part of this wonderful project which we never understood.
