Mumbai University - New e-lockers for students & alumnis

Mumbai University has finally opened its DIGITAL LOCKER facility for all students and alumnis where they can store all their important documents such as degrees, details of AADHAR card, photographs, marksheets etc for use of higher studies and future job applications. This online process aims to reduce processing time by more than 80%.

However I doubt the extent of good this new programme is going to do. My batch has always been a "year of the firsts". This is the first time that Mumbai University has decided to set question papers for First Year Degree students. The intention behind doing so was that all college students write exams for the same amount of syllabus. However this led to students filling University examination forms all over again because MU somehow couldn't avail the student data which was filled at the start of admissions. Hence started another long and absolutely time waste of a process.

For the second semester also the Foundation Course paper for the Internal Examinations was scrapped 4 days before the start of the exams ( not that I was complaining at first. That was  one thing I didn't mind at that time. But I definitely would have if it hey a bigger paper.)  Then MU took money for the Sem 2 main exams which they later on refunded ( I have no idea why. I have never seen anyone so confused in life).

One of my teachers had said that Mumbai University creates solutions to problems that weren't a big deal in the first place, and then end up creating a bigger problem to which they have no solution.

Th DIGITAL LOCKER seems to be a good idea ( did I mention that they will be scanning for fake degrees as well ? ) and will soon turn out to be a fantastic one if it works out well. We will only have to wait and watch.

Until then, All the best to Mumbai University with their new venture. You still have 730 days for any improvements and experiments. ( I graduate in 2 years time ! ).

Mira Road's Son and now Hero - RIP Major Kaustubh Rane

A son, a husband, a father and now a HERO. Gone too soon but not in vain. 

Major Kaustubh Rane (29), resident of Mira Road, lost his life Rane, 29, lost his life fighting for the nation in the Gurez Sector of Jammu & Kashmir on August 7. He was among the four Army personnel killed in a gunfight with terrorists near the LoC in the Bandipura district on Tuesday. His coffin arrived late on Wednesday night and the last rites took place on Thursday morning with full military honours (he was decorated with the Sena Gallantry Medal by President Ram Nath Kovind on the 69th Republic Day celebrations this year).



Police had cordoned off the entire area around his building. Thousands of emotional onlookers (practically 3/4 of Mira Road's population) lined up alongside the road or from building tops and terraces to pay their respects and bid farewell to the man who made them proud and sacrificed himself to ensure their safety.

Close Encounters - Spotting a LEOPARD 12ft away @Nagpur

Presentations, college activities and research work had become my life. Spending 4-5 hours on the laptop and another 3 on the phone had become an everyday thing. Not that I was complaining, but when my college's Nature Club teacher in-charge Prof. Radhika D'Souza asked me if I would like to come on a 4 night, 5 days trip to the Nagzira Tiger Reserve in Nagpur, I immediately said yes. The trip was scheduled from the 28th of December to the 1st of January 2019. This meant that I would be missing my birthday as well as New year in one shot. But trust me, I didn't regret my decision one bit.
Our train was from CST at 3pm. There were around 40 other people on the trip (whom, by the way I didn't know at all; except for a few. But I later on realized that it didn't matter who you knew or didn't know at the beginning of the trip. By the end of it, there wasn't a single person whom you couldn't smile at). This was to be my first long distance train journey. So I…
