Three Things.......

Three Things for an AeSI Graduate

Congrats to everyone who graduated from AeSI this semester.

As you enter the next phase I would like to take this opportunity to add these three things to what Himalya has touched upon in his last post.

1. Respect your degree. You have worked hard for it. Respect it now. Yes you weren't treated well or felt unwelcome, but now is the time to take pride in it. If you have cleared AeSI, you are one of the best in your profession. Always remember, if you don't respect it, no one else will.

1. Be good at one subject. This is of utmost importance not only from the point of view of interviews but in making it the stepping stone for future success. We cannot be good at everything, but we can always be better at one thing. Find that niche and dominate it. Dominance and solid command in one subject or skill pays rich dividend, so cultivate it now.

1. Network. Join AeSIAA, linkedin, ouraesi etc and build your influence. Network is not just contacting seniors with requests. True networking means contributing in the community, taking initiatives, raising your hand in voluntary activities, and helping people in your joined community. That's networking.

Yes there is no typo. All this points deserve no 1. They are the three pillars you will need, to STAND out in your next phase after AeSI!

Congrats once again and Be a star!!

Tips for Avionics students of AMAeSI

It has been proved in the last several years that Avionics is rocking. There are profiles who have completed their degree in just three semester with good percentage (65-70)%. I have seen profiles saying that avionics is the easiest stream as compare to other streams of AeSI.
Yes It's easy because of a fact that It's interesting, the modules and the topics always gives a real time feeling like "learning the concepts behind Instrument Landing System, how landing gears absorb shocks? , how a radar works ? and a lot......."
Relating the above fact to the profiles who fail in the session Dec.2011, or to the new comers... I wish to give few advice and I am confident that It'll work.
1. Have interest, interest and interest in every subject, every topic and every content.
2. Either do all topics with having excellence or DO FEW but WITH CONCEPTS ON FINGURE TIPS.
3. Practice atleast last 4 years (8 semesters) question papers. It's the most important thing to kiss success and to score high.
4. Don't just learn anything without understanding (ratta marna), For Example : You have solved all questions of D.C.Network theorems but you don't know "Does resistance have polarity or not ?" or "What a capacitor does ? "
5. There will be time when you'll not be able to find the solution of a question/objective, try to google it or take senior's help.. but remember a fact that before entering inside the examination hall... you should know ALL solutions.
6. Diagrams, Flow Charts, Graphs and Plots help a lot in garnishing your answer sheets.
For Example : In the latest pattern of Control System question papers, you'll find one theory question and one numerical in a 20 marks question. So the approach of garnishing helps you in gettting 20 out of 20 and trust me It happens.
7. Those who are in the 4th semester of Sec.B, start networking, join groups like AeSIAA, Linkedin , my-aesi and all.... It'll help you to be confident and to wipe the worries of the jobs.
8. Try to google what a company wants from a fresher, which are the companies who welcome freshers and a lot.... Do Analysis and start having excellence in the skills so that by the time when you will finish your degree, you'll have a job in your hand.

Good Luck to all students of AMAeSI !!!!

Yesterday I saw interacting two-three profiles about a fact that "there is difference between bio-data, resume and curriculum vitae". Even though I wasn't aware about it however I tried to google this fact. Oh Jesus !!! I was shocked.
Friends, Google this fact, share your views and start conversation... so that we can know the above fact in a better way.

Congratulations to all who have done best in Aesi exams, and those who didn't get success this time, please treat it as a motivation factor and Good LUCK ahead.... !!!!

Towers are good.

Towers throughout history has provided its users with an advantage in
surveying defensive positions and obtaining a better view of the
surrounding areas.

We need similar towers to improve our skills and knowledge.

When we are too close a problem and get more familiar with a problem
or task, we fall into a lazy trap. We slack.

This is when we need a tower. A mental tower to climb up and detach us
from our immediate worries and tasks at hand and remind us of the big

Fallen into a rut is a common expression and if you don't have this
periodic tower retreats, you are heading towards that rut.

Be it a aesi student, or a trainee or someone in the corporate world,
schedule this tower like retreats.

They help.

Interested in combat fighter aircrafts?

If you are interested in combat aircrafts, if you interested in multi role combat aircraft design process and if you are interested in the conception of Rafale, the winner of the MMRCA, then head to the following link.

The link there points to a PDF technical lecture which will help understand what is the thought process that goes behind the design of a multi role combat aircraft like the Rafale.

Very insightful stuff, especially for aero engineers among us.

Two things to aim at...

Someone sent me this quote today.

There are two things to aim at in life:
First, to get what you want; and second, to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind achieve the second!!!

Loved it.

Under promise but over deliver

This is what Seth Godin had to say in a recent post.

"The mistake is when you put more effort into the promises and less into what you deliver. Promise a lot but deliver even more."

This holds true not only to what you promise others but is even better if we apply it to ourself.

Under promise to yourself but over deliver. How?

That you have to find out for your unique situation.

I am trying to do the same by promising myself to write 2 posts per week and trying to do more. Promising to exercise thrice a week and doing it more.

Let's be Hackers.

hacker-inside Yes let's be hackers. Before you guys chain me read this snippet by Mr Zukerberg, the founder of facebook.

This text is from a recent letter from him to potential investors for the upcoming facebook IPO.

The word "hacker" has an unfairly negative connotation from being portrayed in the media as people who break into computers. In reality, hacking just means building something quickly or testing the boundaries of what can be done. Like most things, it can be used for good or bad, but the vast majority of hackers I've met tend to be idealistic people who want to have a positive impact on the world.

The Hacker Way is an approach to building that involves continuous improvement and iteration. Hackers believe that something can always be better, and that nothing is ever complete.

The emphasis is mine. Continuous improvement and iterations that's the key. If you are learning a new language, building a new skill or learning a new subject, aim to be an hacker.

Instead of meandering with the programming book, write a program; Instead of pouring over the tutorials, try a real life example.

Start early, fail fast. Improve continuously. That's the hackers way

Now it's your turn, just don't read this and move on. Pause and reflect on how you can apply this in your life, in your work.

Thermodynamics was my favourite subject in AeSI. It made intuitive sense to me and perhaps that’s why i was propelled to take up propulsion stream in section B.

Posted a post titled Thermodynamics and propulsion on

If you promised yourself that you will really learn that subject when you have time, then the link there is for you.

Go ahead and enjoy.

Programming Language "C"

I'm sharing one interview question asked to me at Hewlett-Packard. 
Program :
int main ()
      int a=3;
      printf("The value of a is : %d",a);
      printf("\nAddress of a is : %u",&a);
      getch ();
      return 10;
Question :
Run this program, you'll get the address of a as 65524, however the maximum decimal value_16 bit is 65535 (unsigned). Why the address at the output is 65524 not 65535 ?
Question :
Prove using DOS that the return value of the above program is 10 ?
Hint : (echo %errorlevel%)
