Learning here is a completely different approach compared to our educational system. We are not taught in classes here; that is, not completely. Corporates practice self-learning. That is, they will teach you the basics, but it is you who has to learn on a daily basis. Meaning, we get a computer (in the lab) and we are given time to practice the art of coding. We are given questions but no answers. We have to figure it out ourselves. Our educational system never teaches us to think. We were given questions and the answers. Education should in fact teach us to think, not restrict us by giving us finite amount of answers for finite amount of questions.
Let me also mention about the life and the climate. This is completely a new experience for me in this aspect. Shops here shut down by 9.30 or 10pm. Waking up at 5 in the morning daily and having to wash some of my clothes by myself is a new experience (but I've got a shower!! :D) There are lots of book stores, opticals and liquor stores. The roads are like hill slopes and I see a lot of Bullets and Volkswagens and Fiats. Guess the people here have a good taste at least when it comes to automobiles.. :P That kinda sums up Trivandrum, in my perspective at least. The climate is extremely pleasant at times and a little hot at times. But most of the time, it is just good enough.
Life here is pretty good then. I just wish I had a laptop and an internet connection. But hey, I ain't complaining!
