I am just back in Kochi after a tour of AITA (Accel IT Academy) centers in Tirunelveli, Madurai and Tiruchirappalli. Someone who may be staying in Thiruvananthapuram may have a better access to these places – but for me the journey was a bit lengthy.
I go to Tirunelveli on Monday morning. The Tirunelveli AITA is actually located in Palayamkottai, the twin city of Tirunelveli. The AITA center is pretty good – it has some senior faculties and the Area Manager – Mr. Noble Thilak is always present to manage it well. While in here I was not able to visit any temples – because I was too tired and I just wanted to sleep since I didn’t get any sleep in the train journey from Thrissur to Tirunelveli. Luckily they had got me a hotel nearby and I got plenty of time to sleep..lol..
Next day I went to Madurai by train – it took about 3.5 hours. The AITA center here is in Anna Nagar which is a litle bit away from the heart of Madurai. But its a fast developing area. They don’t have any center managers at the moment but its managed well by Mr. Sakthi (who is an excellent technical person) and his team. I stayed at hotel near Anna bus stand which is a bit away from AITA. But its much cheaper compared to the hotel nearby AITA. In the evening I went to Meenakshi-Sundareswarar temple. Its a classic – its huge.
Next day I went to Tiruchirappalli (Trichy) – also by train – Vaigai Express – it lives up to its name as a Super fast express. In Trichy AITA is in 1st Cross, Thillai Nagar. Its managed by Mr. Vasanth who is an experienced campaigner.
I am now back in AITA, Kochi right now from where I am writing this entry..
