Alumni - AHS 1990 batch
After 20 years, batch mates of 1990 united at their school. Officially the function was supposed to start by 10am and most of them were punctual. We got around 30 (or more) old students by 11:30am. A few of our respected teachers also came to bless the function.
Gopalakrishnan Sir (Physics)
Sreedevi teacher (Malayalam)
Eliamma teacher (Library)
Lissy teacher (English)
Irene teacher (English)
Alumi meet started with a silent prayer for our friends who are no more with us - Jiju Thomas, Manoj G, Vidya and Satya Narayanan.
Followed to the welcome speech, Gopalakrishnan Sir told us about the current situation of our school. By next year school may have end of life. If nobody come to take over the school, Ambalamedu High School will be in our memories and records only.
Then other teachers also shared their memories and blessed the gathering.
Later each of us gave a formal introduction. I am waiting for the full list of participants and photos of the function from the organizers. I hope I can get in few days.
For few hours each of us became 20 years younger. After lunch we all dispersed back to our busy life agreeing to meet again in August 2010.

Ubuntu 9.10 on Lenovo g450
For almost 25 months I was not even touching a Linux box. When I got a Lenovo g450 laptop at work, I thought of trying GNU on this box. I am always inclined for Debian. So I choose to try Ubuntu latest version Ubuntu 9.10 - the Karmic Koala - released in October 2009. Installation was very simple. The only hardware that was not detected by default was Wireless Lan card.
I ran System -> Administration -> Hardware drivers. That detected the correct driver for the wireless lan card.
Once again I am back to the Unix/Linux world. The only issue I am facing is that WPA is not supported in the Linux driver.

It's time to say Alvida to Hyderabad. After 25 months of stay in Hyderabad, with lots of good and bad experiences, it’s time to move on…
The only thing that is constant is *change* - Heraclitus. Changes are happening in my life again. As always I am embracing this change also wholeheartedly. I believe it’s beyond our control. There is *somebody* who set our path and our job is just to move on…destiny is always decided. If you tell in engineering terms, it’s pre-programmed.
I liked Hyderabad for these reasons –
Good weather (80% of the time its winter) if you leave the 2 months hot summer.
Availability and quality of drinking water is good.
It’s gifted with natural beauty and has lot of monuments.
