As promised I would to write something on my meeting with Mr. Bishnujee Singh.
This I am doing for the benefits of the people who were not able to meet him due
exams or other reasons.
Since so many days have passed and I can't boast of a crystal memory, so all I will
pen is what I have retained and remember. Another thing is the lettering may not be
exact what Mr. Bishnujee said but the essence is same.
Clad in a white t-shirt with Boeing 787's front view jutting out from the chest region, he
sat in one corner of his hotel room in front of his open laptop, while we, four of us ,
Introductions apart he moved on to the themes and the discussions that were
interesting revealing and inspiring.
Here I try to present his advice on various things.
On finding jobs:
Don't only just go for the newspaper jobs, These mostly come out at last resort or as supplements. So when you are ready, just send in your resumes direct to the hiring managers!!!!! Reference do play a part so select it carefully.
On general mood of the aesi people.
Change your attitude, be proud of what you are doing. Know and believe its one of the
best course that you are doing. Know your worth. And instead of looking on the
negative people of aesi but see bright sides like anshuman etc and so many others who are and have achieved success. Face the sun and all shadows will fall behind!!!!!
Read entirely. read with passion and with full dedications. Studying for AMAeSI is a full time job. Devote your full time to it. Save yourself from part time jobs craze unless it helps in your professional development.
As my views in ouraesi, its more important to get some good experience in some
blue-chip companies than studying oceans and HR in IIT's!!!! The world comes to
India not to get a manager but and engineer. So get those skills.
On studying abroad,
Well I insist on UK because its much more easier to get there and study than US
and one should have a minimum work exposure so that they don't feel alien to the ms courses offered!!!
Well that's it for now. This is the only thing I remember right now, will write back if I
remember something else. And yes, as I said the wording may not be exact same
but the essence is totally same.
But before I close I would like to add a thanks to Mr. Bishnujee for the time and the
effort he took for all of us. Its great to see a person making a difference. And like the
Boeing 787 soaring on his t shirt, I wish him all the best for his career and wish it to
soar new heights!!!!

Many of things i said on that day are still relevent and now after 646 members in the club, i feel proud in seeing the club florish and soar hight.
It feels good to know that a thing is there now where aesi graduates can come and gather, a place where one can file questions that might get an answe\. None existed when i needed one such answer and that created this club!!!
Its has a long journery from the time when i have to coax my friends to join, from the time when i alone posted and when, none new about ouraesi club!! It has grown and it will continue to grow from support of so many of its members!1 thank you all and please do contribute, its your chance to make difference.....
Here i am posting the mail that i posted on the time i menstioned above.
Every college, engineering or otherwise, has a community! But for
Aeronautical society's student there's none. No place to gather , no
place to meet and no place to share. so i came up with the idea of
this group where through net we can interact and communicate with all
our fellow mates who are spread all over india !!
This is a mammoth task and a single individual can't complete it
alone. So i hope all the members joining here will take this task in
there hand & will spread the word for this group to there immediate
friends and will unite all the students of AeSI.
I am a member to one group but that group is very passive only 2 or 3
people contibute to the group rest just keep mum and i don't want
this to happen to our group. Hey AeSI students are not lazy!! So
please make it a point to contibute something, maybe how trival, once
in a week to the club. It can be anything ; a small artile you read,
or a very good site you visited , a great exam tip you heard or even
your problems in flights question paper you can't solve....
The idea here is just to contibute and show that we are an active
The success and failure of any community depends on its people's. And
here the onus is on you. Borrowing John D Anderson words, my work is
done, yours is just begining................
First of all a little apology, i owe to you all for sending one message repeatedly for three times, actually it was a problem with my mobile which i used sending the message, it showed server not responding and i clicked thrice. Sorry!!!
Anyway, exams are over, at least for propulsion and aerodynamics students!!! This time the general mood of the exam was happy except of course the Flights exams which got questions from ASM and Prop three.
As someone i talked pointed out, "this time questions in aesi exams were knowledge based!" and seeing VMD, ASM, P3 and MATHS 3 paper, i think he is not exactly wrong.
More on exams latter !!! And yes, if you sometime see one message posted more than once, please ignore cause you know my mobile misfired!!!!

Imagine a big hall full of people, some sitting on the beautifully constructed podium and other in posh chairs. Imagine yourself sitting with friends listening to the not-so-interesting lectures and clapping at recipients of awards and then you hear your name being called. After a while when u finally realize its you only they are announcing and you move forward to the podium to get your degree , the DJ sound increasingly resonating with the claps that propel you towards the podium. you somewhat dazzled, but brimming with pride accept the prize. And imagine getting the degree from the face of Indian aeronautics, and being congratulated by him and clapped by a hall full of people some very eminent personalities of our time. And imagine yourself wishing so hard at that very moment that your parents were there and see their son's moment of achievement... Well if you haven't gone to the AGM this time you have the missed this exact feeling...... and you can just now imagine, as told to me by my roommate who was there at the scene of action.
I can't possible recount the things that happened there but then from what I heard and from what I have felt while talking to friends who went there, each of them have enjoyed and had a great time. Of course as with any big functions there are bound to be some small glitches like a friend of mine lost the very thing he went there to collect, his degree certificate and one lost 1000 bucks, but hey as shah rukh khan said "bade bade sharaoo mein asccci chhoti choti baate hoti rehti hai! " and having said i hope and wish that they will recover the things!!
Anyway some of the good things that people liked was that the degrees were awarded not behind close doors as I and I guess you also have heard from so many of our seniors, this time it was in open and in full ovations..... I admit there were no black gown and black caps to swing up for that Kodak moment but hey the jester of getting the degrees in a ovation was worth any gown, and I am sure anyone who has gone there and received the degree will surely agree.
Another thing was that this time degrees were awarded and they were given in a file folder to hold it. This was the first time this has happened, in my knowledge.
Many members of this very club have visited the place, I hope people will share their experiences with us and let us know firsthand what they loved and hated about it. (of course that includes the vodkas, teas, juices and snacks!! And I heard from someone the tea was third class) And for all those graduating next, my friend and roommate has one resounding thing to say 'go ahead, don't miss it for your life and be sure I'll there next time among the one clapping for you!''
