I went to Chelakkara Polytechnic for a seminar today. This institute is on the way up to be one of the best polytechnics in Kerala. Unfortunately the students there doesn’t seem to be on the same page. When I was taking the class only very students were interested in attending the class – some of them were sleeping (I can understand that – it was hot in the afternoon and anybody would have fallen asleep) but most of them kept talking with each other – and I wasn’t able to present the seminar much at all. There was no PA system and I am not a person who can shout at the top of my voice. And we also met the Principal who happens to be from my native place.
Note: I had a comment just below saying that I am bad mouthing Chelakkara Polytechnic. I am not. I just wrote what happened when I went to take the seminar. The students can take this post as a word from a critic or observer and maybe next time when we go there to take seminars, they can behave better.
I did ask one of the students if they have anyone interested in attending seminars, they could send them to Accel. He did sent some very good attentive students to Accel afterwards..
