I am to present a paper on IRCMET conference hosted by Choice Group of Colleges and Global Open University together. I started from Pune on 29th February and reached Mumbai early hours of 01, March to catch an Indigo flight at 06.30 AM. I felt little boredom at airport as was to wait almost 6 hours there. I struck up with small problem as I was asked to show evidence whether my stay got reserved or not. This was new to me as I did not met with such instance before. Finally I somehow convinced the counter-executive at booking by showing conference itenary. Finally I got the boarding pass. Boarded the flight at 06.30 and flight was on schedule.
Reached Bangkok at 01.30 by now I was so frustrated and very badly in need of food (Now-a-days food was stopped in almost all airline from India). There was a long que at immigration check, it took almost 2 hours to get out of it. I collected baggage, lying there as left overs. I wandered here and there for currency exchange. Finally got some exchange kiosk and got approximately 800 Bahts worth of Indian Rupees. I straight proceeded to gate number 12 (as I was instructed in India), there I found a man called Tim, the guide and also very interesting person. All those who travelled with me were there waiting for remaining people. It was almost 03.00PM. In deed, we are suppose to go to hotel and after refreshments follows city tour. But due to delay and skewed planning of travel agent, we were put under city tour first. Of course the city tour is all about Golden Buddha temple visit and followed by a dinner.
The Golden Buddha Temple is must for visit for any one who visits Bangkok.
I have Ubuntu Maverick and OpenSUSE 11.2 disks with me. Any body need, then send me a request. of course you need to bear postal charges. Send me an envelop with 2 blank DVDs and you also need to wait for some time, since I am busy, but I see that disk reach with in a week. Don’ forget to affix sufficient stamps to envelop.
Today I gave some video presentations to the students regarding System Analysis and Design. All most all class was present to the program. I must say thanks to Mrs. Cathy , ELQIP Coordinator, in Aksum University, for providing me audio-visual room for presentations.
Video demonstrations helps to students learn subject with required involvement. The theme of the presentation is to explain them about recent developments in Information Systems across the world, and its advatages to business organizations. I gave two demonstrations one is about Cisco’s networking in George Washington University, and the other is about UPS of US.
Marium’s festival is one of the grand festivals in Axum. I had visited the Tsion Church on 30, November,2009, during Marium’s festival. I was really enthralled by the crowd and the grandeur of the celebrations. The people of Axum love celebrations and they are traditional and timid while celebrating the festivals. On November, 30, 2009, it was really awesome experience in my life.
The church was full of offers and prayers during the whole day, the crowd inside the church was so calm and decent during the whole day. I observed two Q’s just before the altar or main place inside the church. This is one of the important churches in Ethiopia, having lot of historical background. As far as, I know, the church was built by Haile Selassie the greate, one of the emperors of Ethiopia.
The church is very spacious with four entrances all around the church. The surroundings and vicinity inside and outside of the church is very beautiful.
The above photo is the vicinity of the Tsion (Marium Church), the objects that are standing are Steles of Aksum. Steles are main attractions of the Aksum town, being one of the important spots for the tourists.
The above photo is about all Indians in Axum town, Tigray, Ethiopia. It is usual to have informal gatherings in Axum. The Axums was one of the great empires of the past and ancient times. The photograph shows all Indians gathered during an informal occation in Remhai Hotels (one of the luxurious hotels in Axum). Some of them in the photo are working as instructors in Aksum University, one of the newly established Universities in Ethiopia.
