IPhone 5s

Finally I've changed my phone. Got a new iPhone - iPhone 5s. I am still trying to figure out the various options, menus and its applications.

This is not going to be review of a year old phone. But I'd like to write some pros and cons here that I have observed since buying it. (Bought it on 26th December, 2014 from Capital Mobile, Gandhinagar)

Pros:
  • Awesome display and touch.
  • Compactness.
  • Excellent camera.
  • Security (Fingerprint scanner).
  • Better App Ecosystem as compared to Android.
  • Rendering of Hindi and Gujarati fonts. 
Cons:
  • No back button. Hate pressing the Home button every now and then.
  • Bluetooth sharing.
  • Requires iTunes for transferring music.

Food Poisoning

Had been suffering from food poisoning since the day before yesterday. It all started after I had wake up that morning. Started with bouts of vomiting, followed by shivering and then severe fever. Had to return home before college ends.

Can't recognize what played havoc with my stomach and intestine. Took rest yesterday. And today, still I have some trouble after eating food.

I am lucky to have Kiran as my wife. She cares for me a lot. Thanks to her that I can recover fast. She reminds me of mummy who also used to take care in such a manner.

Alumni Meet of UVPCE - Ganpat University

Alumni Meets always allows us to reconnect with our pals of the good old days. Not just pals, but our crushes, our not so loving classmates and last but not the least - our Professors.


 It has not being a long time that I've graduated (post graduated) from U V Patel College of Engineering, Ganpat University. However, still the atmosphere was filled with memories of the past. The air was charged with camaraderie at The Green Pearl restaurant in Ahmedabad yesterday evening.

Although just a few classmates of the first batch of M.Tech (Computer Engineering & IT) at UVPCE were present over the event, it was full of past memories like bunking the lectures, eating pav-bhaaji at the canteen or running for submissions.

Even before the lamp lighting ceremony, each one of us was busy in introducing our spouses and children to each other and to our professors.

Post lamp lighting ceremony by the dignitaries we had dinner and were glad to meet most of our professors.

However, I missed the regular chaotic engineering guys at the alumni meet. Just few years back, these engineers were noisy, chaotic and some what Hullabaloo during such events - interested only in making fun of the others and pulling each others legs. Now, may be they have grown into sincere, less noisy and reponsible individuals. Life changes. People change. And so do their behavior.
