I don’t like the way exams are setup in our educational setup. If you ask me, I don’t have any alternatives either. From what I have seen, its not those who know more, but those who can remember more scores higher.
A workshop on Web Design and Web Technologies, supposed to be the first BarCamp Kerala Lite, was held at College of Engineering, Thalassery, Kannur yesterday 20.Feb.2010.
I was there to take a session on ‘How to easily build Websites using WordPress’.
What an awesome week this was. A lot of things happened this week, a short record –
Attended Church on Sunday. I rarely do that these days, but I love going to the church. Being in the church is a time to think of me and find my bits and pieces.
Sleepless night. I was preparing the presentation for the Campus Blogging Meet. I love staying up all night and its been about 2 months since I did it last. Felt so good.
The first Campus Blogging meet was held at Innovation Lab, Cochin, on last 26th. Purpose was to make new bloggers, spread the idea of campus blogging and interconnect various campus blogging initiatives.
Organised by @KenneyJacob, I was there to meet up with my friends and to take a session on ‘How to write good blog posts’.
As a kid I used to go to my attic and watch the sky for hours at a time. Once when I was 15 I caught a shooting star, it was just for a couple of seconds, I still remember the excitement of the moment.
Today there was an Annular Solar Eclipse and I got lucky to see it. It’s the first time I am seeing one. FYI, an annular solar eclipse is:
A special case of solar eclipse is called annular eclipse. It occurs when the moon is farther from the earth than normal distance, hence, its apparent size is not sufficient to cover the sun completely.
Therefore, even though the sun-moon alignment is perfect, the moon appears slightly smaller in diameter than the sun and a thin ring of sunlight is visible around the dark silhouette of the moon,” explained Anil Yadav, incharge, Indira Gandhi Planetarium
Teachers were also equally excited to see the event, it was real fun to witness something like this with teachers and friends. Today is a memorable day 🙂
See Some Images of Annular Solar Eclipse on Google, I don’t know how one can shoot a solar eclipse, maybe using a filter on the camera.
