The dawn of Nov27th 2006 can never be forgotten.The most memorable day in all our lives!
Little confused, little frightened, little puzzled(thinking of the start in such a huge campus)WE ALL ENTERED the gates of Hootagalli Mysore INFOSYS Campus.We were all thrilled when we were given "THE PINK"cards(our first IDENTITY CARDS)at the Multiplex(our first destination in the campus).We were very much fascinated by the campus, thrilled a lot thinking about the new life, WERE AT THE VERGE of TEARS when we were bading bye bye to MamaPapa and college buddies..TRIED HARD To control the tears COZ WE BELIEVED WE ENTERED THE PROFESSIONAL LIFE!!!BUT IT WAS false….Through out the training we felt it was just like a student life reloaded again in our lives…A RARE BOON which rare people get!!As the INFY song was played"You are my INFY"we felt a shiver in spine…A NEW EXCITEMENT THAT WE are going to be a part of "INFY FAMILY"!
THE first day most of us got lost in the campus searching for the right roads, searching for the food courts, for Xerox of markslists in G.E.C. and searching for many more things.
How can any one forget the sessions conducted at the multiplex? C-Life by Arun Nayar AASHI by PreetKushalappa..session by BRADLEY…popularly called Brad(cant remember the name of the session but it was NOT BORING I can say:-).Financial briefing of which not even a single word got absorbed in to our heads, still we tried concentrating on each and every WORD as if theres going to be an immediate test in it as INFY training and tests were already RULING our MINDS!"The first one week at INFY is like HONEYMOON then the marriage starts"!!These were the words of our Mentor Shashikala during the first Ice breaking session at INFY popularly called ILI sessions!(
The role plays conducted made us laugh, bored us and made us sleep too at times, still we found FUN in everything.After the first week of icebreaking there came the HeadBreaking and the most important phase…. "TECHNICAL TRAINING"at the most renowned campus OF
Then came "the COMPRE"...The fun lasted till then lessened with the thoughts of EXIT POLICY!!
Some of the friends got separated after generic!!Entered stream which came to end with jet speed!!It was more fast than GENERIC…We PRAYED FOR OURSELVES. PRAYED FOR OUR FRIENDS as it is difficult to even dream of vacating the place after spending all these days here! PRAYERS were answered .The thought of losing people due to exit policy was terrible, still the thing which gave us courage was A forever SMILE on our faces which rejuvenated us!!FRIENDS WHO WERE WITH US TILL THE END!!!laughed with us:) cried with us!!:( THE DAY OF SEPARATION has finally come..ALL OF US got to go to their own places after trying all possibilities to get their most WANTED DC!!
The sudden thought of leaving
The excitement did not last more than a week!!THE MECHANICAL life here …colleagues …onsite calls…business relations…the dialy routines…made the memories of INFY—
For whatever length of time we may stay here ..say 3 4 or even 10years [:-0 ]the period from NOV27th 2006…till the completion of training in APR 2007 will be the most MEMORABLE ERA in the INFY REGIME!!I hope all our friendships last forever and ever.. CHEERS!!:)
KEEP ROCKING LIKE THIS ……….. :):)
