What should I do for AIEEE exam?

All you need is to think freely; try to avoid complications in your mind while seeing the objects and be assured before filling the options in the answer sheet.

The All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) is going to be held on 25th April 2010. I appeared for the AIEEE twice and managed to get through in engineering as well as in architecture and planning in the year 2008. I didn’t opt for engineering seat because I knew I may get the seat through 2nd or 3rd counseling or probably I may not get. Moreover, I had better rank in architecture than engineering and above all this, I was more interested in architecture.

The candidate who is going to sit in the engineering exams has to mug up the 11th and 12th standard books day and night; go to coaching centre and understand the whole syllabus; and go through all that hard work besides extra stress of the exam itself. But for the architecture exam, one is not bounded with syllabus. As there is no specific book that could be entirely or particularly relied upon, so is tough to analyze the syllabus. It is like anything can come that is not taught to you in your senior school.

The most important point to remember is that all that seems to be conceptual from the examination point of view will be helpful in the exam, like your inner qualities, your perspective to observe things. The test will not only test your intelligence but also your way of observing things, your talent and creativity too. For some, it may appear as interesting game or puzzle and for some, nothing more than useless things that pressurize and force your brain to think about what you are not used to and that lead to headache. In architecture you only need mathematics that is comparatively simple and easy than the math comes in test (In my opinion).

In architecture exam besides mathematics, the paper contains aptitude test, general knowledge and drawings. Even if someone has little GK about architecture but has the ability to see things and objects from different angles and points, will be able to attend the aptitude part nicely and can clear the exam easily. Drawing part also matters a lot as it consists the maximum marks in the architecture exam. One question related to drawing may carry 20 or 50 marks.

I have seen students while I was appearing for the architecture exam, they literally put their hands on their head as the object shapes, its orientation, angle in aptitude test was good enough to get them headache and feel dizzy. But for some it appears to be very interesting as such things are not taught till class 12th. It’s something how do you observe things better than others, that’s what need in architecture. “What will be the view if you see the object from this angle, from top, from bottom?” “How many triangles, rectangles are their?” Options for such questions make students more confuse as all the options seem similar. I was very confident about exam when I first attempted as I was thinking my aptitude exam went well but disappointment came in hand when I didn’t cleared the exam. I was not able to make out what went wrong. Later I analyzed that the option which was appeared to be perfectly correct from my viewpoint, was actually wrong… I should have observed more carefully.

So, I convey my best wishes to all class 12th students who are appearing for AIEEE exams this Sunday. All the best for tomorrow’s exams. But my special wishes are for the students who are going to appear architecture exam. Especially as you don’t have to study the text book except maths and even if you have so-so type of drawing (not bad also) can clear the exam given all your attempted questions are correct in aptitude test. This is not a tough job. All you need is to think freely; try to avoid the complications in your mind while seeing the objects and assure before filling the options in the answer sheet or else while revising, you will be like- “oh god! no I think c) option is correct and I put option b)”. So take care of these things and ALL THE BEST.

The 'Star' Krishankant Sinha of Space City Sigma

By RK Rishikesh Sinha, New Delhi It is a myth that the all-knowing Internet knows everything. One such myth relates to old television stuff aired on Doordarshan before 1990. Search in Google “Space City Sigma”, the search engine would throw up reminiscent results from the people who still long for those days. Those days were really golden days. Krishankant Sinha in the role of Captain Tara in Space City Singma For those who have watched Doordarshan some 15 to 20 years back, am sure they will have nostalgic memories of it. The days when possessing a now ubiquitous looking television set was a luxury. It was a neighbour’s envy product. It was a visual product to showoff, to flaunt that we have a television set . Those were the days when black and white, locked television was rarely found in homes. The days became immortal for teleserials like Ramayana, Mahabharata, Swami’s Malgudi Days (Ta-Na-Na-Na…), Ek-Do-Teen-Char (Title song: Ek do teen char, chaaro mil ke saath chale to

Sri Sri Bhubaneshwar Sadhu Thakur

By Ranita Sinha, Kolkata Sri Sri Bhubaneshwar Thakur, the great saint of the Bishnupriya Manipuri Community was born on 26th October, 1871, in a remote village of Cachar district called Baropua in the state of Assam. He was born to a Xatriya Manipuri family. His father Sri Sanatan Pandit was a Sanskrit teacher and mother Srimati Malati Devi, a house wife. Sadhu Baba from his childhood was indifferent to all worldly happenings. He was engrossed in chanting the name of Lord Krishna. Along with other students of his age, Sadhu Baba started taking lessons of grammar and other spiritual literature from his father. At a very young age he lost his mother but he was brought up with utmost love and care by his step mother. At the age of eighteen, Sadhu baba lost his father, so, to continue his spiritual education under the guidance of Rajpandit Mineshwas Swarbabhwam Bhattacherjee, he went to Tripura. But within one year he made up his mind to visit all the holy places and as such he took permis
