My Experiences @ SKILLS TEST- 2010

Sponsored Links

Hello pharmainfo friends,

I was introduced to this professional community by Prof. K.V. Ramana Murthy in 2009 through Skills Test, who brought out the spirit in me and imbibed the seeds of competitiveness. He is a legendary who always believes that the real way to judge a caliber of a student is not from his academic performance or from any other, its the way he performs and how he acts according to the situation.

Skills Test 2010 is a series of classical test matches of almost one year with two innings (blogs) a month with a single result. It contained several teams led by legendary captains (leaders) with their own team players (learners). The real classic and talent come out in test cricket, the same came true with skills test. It is the test of patience, attitude, commitment and determinations.

Coming to our team, proudly named "ATHARVANA", a blend of diversity in its way of work, three learners from different colleges under the guidance of Prof. J.Vijaya Ratna madam.

I feel very happy to be a part of this team, an owe of deep gratitude to our team leader who accepted our request to hold this battle of Skills Test; she taught us ways to achieve excellence than the orthodox strive. I am sure she is not only a guide to our team; has been a backbone throughout the competition giving all kinds of support to all other co-participants with her active participation. I thank her on behalf of all for the inspiration, support and encouragement extended.

Here starts the real story of Skills Test 2010,My co- learner Kranthi was a tough competitor and of course a good player, no doubt, he is such a nice person who is workaholic and smart in his ideology; and the other dynamic creative Nikilesh from whom I used to learn a lot from our school days. I remember our good olden school days where we both of us were the source of mischief and fun in the class room and also to share the punishments in common.

My journey in skills test 2009 though could not fulfill professional satisfaction; and that brought an urge to be a part of Skills Test 2010. The start of the contest itself is a learning experience on battle of words bringing plagiarism issues into picture; this put me on to "How to write a scientific blog?" To be honest the content of the blog is not of my own thoughts, it was the analysis of all the comments on plagiarism and the past boosting comments on me, and this is rightly pointed out by Prof. Malcolm D'Souza sir appreciating my analytical skill. Another memory was a test by Dr. Lakshmi Madam, who asked me a question to find out any drug from India that filed an NDA. This question made me to search for more and more from web source and also journals. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any, the same was reported; she appreciated my effort and my skill of patience. This really brought out a seed of genuineness in me. I have similar experiences with other leaders like Amol sir, Rehman Sir, Payal madam; it has been a great experience to me interacting with you all at this platform. I thank all the visionary teachers in the for their kind support and correcting me whenever wrong. The other participants were equally competitive. I would like to quote an example: Abhigna during Questions and Answers round was very alert and witty. I always aimed to be the first in scoring points where I used to put questions or answers at late nights. When I woke up in morning and I see my position I could find myself second and she was first, also Indira she had an excellent writing skills that reflected in her book pages.

One great comment I always remember forever is the comment made my KHAN sir, to my blog on LOVE CEUTICS , while writing this blog I was pretty feared that it may be controversial to post at this professional platform, I thought that I may be fired out by Khan sir for making fun on subjects... but he appreciated my creativity. It was shocking to me.

I used to have a great fun in making blogs, making my own images to our blogs with various designing tools. I remember those good days of my home work on each blog where I used to search for the information a lot, as I learned from sai sir in one of the comment to me as "Information is always King".

Finally the show of 3 idiots in the name of ATHARVANA ended with many memories and experiences!!! shared everything in person.

Finally, I am elated to be again a part of this wonderful platform of Skills Test. I wish the organizers come up with such good innovative ideas hereby and bring out the real core of the students.

Thank You All !!!!

Hi Santosh, It's really been great interacting with you through this skills test and one thing which astonished me is that you and Nikilesh were a source of mischief!:) because as far as i know, you both are very reserved and workaholics!

Yes, we had a great interaction tour.... We used to be the invisible source of mischief, well reserved in making fun and disciplined in work... Good thing is that my friend joined my college (M.Pharm 1st year) we can start again with same momentum.....

Hi Santosh, It was a great blogging journey with you all and Vijay ratnam madam had been a source of inspiration and support for all of us too! You have rightly said that a student's calibre should be assessed by his performance and situational behaviour rather than his academics in which I too believe strongly! Keep blogging..!

Dear Aishwarya!! It was usually said by Prof. KV Ramana Murthy sir... in our every semester classes when he had his subjects....It gives me a spark of enthusiasm every time when he give this statement because I was not the topper at our college but, I am pretty confident that I can manage things according to the situation...

Dear Santosh, First of all you three members have done very good job. Under able and excellent guidance of Prof. Vijayaratna Madam, you polished. Learning nature is important because everyone can not become excellent student or learner until and unless one have zeal to achieve, kindness to receive and habit to improve. Best wishes for future.... Regards,

Amol Sir, Myself and my team mates are lucky to get a leader like Vijaya Ratna madam as the guide... we learned a lot from our guide and from teachers like you at this platform ... Thank you sir for sharing your wisdom with us....

I am really proud of you and pretty confident that you have a great future. Hopefully my role is not Viru Sahastrabudhhe (ViruS) in this episode.

Dear Khan Sir,
I remember you trying to help me in Skills Test 2009 when I was under pressure to write a blog, at that time I myself trained to write a blog with great pressure where as in Skills Test 2010, I was well educated to write a blog under the noble guidance ... A shift from Well Trained to Well Educated....

I suspect your role is not as VIRUS but it is RajKumar Hirani, your constant criticism, appreciation and suggestions helped in bringing out the excellence in me.......

I strive to justify my title of Rancho to work out things with great pleasure not with great pressure!!!

Thank You Sir!!!
