Teachers Day Greetings



Teachers Day Greetings
We celebrate 5th September as Teacher’s Day since 1962, the day commemorates the birthday of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakhrishnan, a great teacher and a staunch believer of education, known for his contribution towards the education system of India. According to Dr. Radhakhrishnan, “teachers should be the best minds in the country”. The birthday of  Dr. Radhakhrishnan came to be celebrated as Teachers Day when some of his students requested him to allow them to celebrate his birthday ‘5th September’. Dr. Radhakrishnan said, “instead of celebrating my birthday separately, it would be my proud privilege if 5th September is observed as Teachers’ day”. Since then 5th September is observed as Teachers Day throughout India. He was the 2nd President of India, but all through his life, he saw himself as a teacher. He preferred to live a teacher’s life. He was committed to being a teacher. He was a scholar, a diplomat, the President of India and yet, quintessentially a teacher. I salute him. Celebrating Teachers Day is acknowledged by UNESCO and fairly popular in several countries across the globe.

         Teachers are the real nation builders as they shape the future of every child and mould him/her into a responsible citizen. The great scientist Albert Einstein said, “It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.” The most important quality of a teacher is to awaken in his students, a sense of creativity and the joy of learning. The teacher plays a vital role in transformation. In the life of every teacher, there are incidents of simple efforts that succeeded in bringing about a transformation in somebody’s life.

All of us have been students someday and have benefited from our teachers. I strongly believe that a very poor student can survive in this society and can lead decent life with education only. I am one of the best example for that. On this occasion, I would like to thank for my teachers who are the reason for my social and economic status what I am having today. I am also happy to be part of teacher community in making engineers to the country. Even though I am not a government servant, I choose teaching as one option to serve the country by teaching in India to the young engineers and moving forward with the mantra, Teach to Transform, Educate to Empower and Learn to Lead.

Jai Hind!!!

Planning strategy - 2018

Dear All,
UPSC declared results for civil services 2016. When I am reading the success stories of the toppers, I am very much inspired and motivated a lot. In all their success, they mentioned an important contribution from their teachers. Then I felt that, why dont I motivate my students and be part of their success and help them in building their career. But, due to time constraints in the class room, we are not able to spend more time in motivation. Hence, I wrote all my thoughts and suggestions in the form of following two articles one is for GATE 2018 and another is for ESE 2018 preparation strategies.

General Awareness

Dear All,
I shared lot of information about electrical engineering through this blog. When I am doing interviews, I observed many students are facing challenges in answering some general questions about India and current affairs. It is expected that a well educated person should know about their mother country, understanding the matters of everyday observation, General and broad understanding of structural (institutions) and functional (processes) aspects of Indian political system, current events of Regional, National and International importance. Some students are good at their core subjects and lagging in these areas. Even though lot of information is available in various platforms, but still there is lot of gap in students.
So, I am planning to devote this web page to provide some information on general awareness and current affairs and some questions collected from previous exams of UPSC, state PSCs and PSUs.
As I born in AP and staying in Telangana, I will cover mostly about India, AP and Telangana state information which will be useful for various competitive exams.
Please feel free to suggest /share your views in this regard so that more number of students should get benefited from this initiative.
At this point of time I would like to quote one Shlok:

Meaning: Neither any thief can steal it, nor any king can defeat it, not even any sibling/relative can ask to divide or share for it, apart from this it is not heavy when you carry it with you. As much you will expense it, the more increment will be there in it and hence, Vidya, Pragna, your intellectual property is the best wealth among all kind of existing assets

Interview tips for PSUs

Dear All,
In this time, you may receive interview calls from various PSUs if you have good GATE 2017 score.
Based on my knowledge and experience, here I am giving you few tips to be followed before you attend any PSU interview:
  1. Prepare a justified reason to explain your gap after B.Tech, One year or smaller gap may not be big questions. But, a justified & transparent answer is expected.
  2. Review your degree (either B.Tech or M.Tech) project, summer training work and previous/current job profile (if any), prepare brief points to answer.
  3. Revise main/basic technical subjects from your branch, especially those from which you feel are applied in that particular PSU. Focus more on definitions, principles, and applications of the subjects. Focus more on technical subjects and do not forget to revise more.
  4. GD is round is one of the important round hence prepare some traditional and contemporary topics for GD. Speak confidently and don't be nervous. Do some practice of GD by forming group of friends and rehearse it.
  5. Do not be over confident, try to balance your views, give transparent and relevant answers in interview.
  6.  Do not argue with board members and too much discussion on personal/family problems. Do not bluff the board.
  7. When you attending PSU interviews, Do not show much interest in ESE/IAS/M.Tech rather than express your desire to work in PSUs in techno managerial jobs. Explore more about the PSU for which you are facing interview.
  8. Prepare your academic back ground, hobbies, interests, strengths and weaknesses related questions properly. Thoroughly read the news papers of last few days before interview and watch news in TV to update yourself with the latest happenings in the country.
  9. Do not try to depict sympathy by reflecting your poor background / backwardness / rural background, rather be confident and reflect that you are capable of fighting with such problems/issues 
  10. Do not talk against the constitutional provisions, show integrity towards nation and willingness to work for nation and society.
  11. Give a solid justified reason to join that particular PSU.
  12. You should be cheerful and interactive during the interview and not over excited. Make a proper eye contact with the panel. Go with neat dress. After interview thank the panel and walk out confidently.
If you want to attend MOCK interview with me,

I and my team of experts will do interview on April 23, 2017 in 5th floor of Suryalok Complex, Abids - ACE Engineering Academy, Hyd
